2010 Census - Census Takers arrive to Bel~Air

As has been widely publicized over the last year, the 2010 United States Census is upon us. The stated purpose of the U.S. Census is to count every resident in the United States, and is required by the Constitution to take place every 10 years.

Yesterday, a (purported) Census Taker arrived at my home in Bel~Air asking questions despite my having completed and timely returned the Census as directed by the US Government. And as the questions asked went beyond those "10 simple questions" set forth in the 2010 Census form - I had good cause for concern.

Whether or not the Census Taker was legitimate was one matter, while another was the legal authority an actual Census Taker has to ask questions beyond the Constitutionally authorized inquiry as to the number of people living in each household. Add that to each of our rights of privacy (see Griswold v. Connecticut) and you have a real head-scratcher. [Finally, throw in the fact that the Census Taker threatened to call the Federal Marshal if the questions were not answered and you have the impetus for this post!]
