"Conducting a military operation is hard work and GPS marking every door in America requires a hard worker! Ideally, you would not have studied history and specifically have not read IBM and the Holocaust by Edwin Black. You need to have persistent qualities even when abused, but remember the data you collect will be extremely helpful to Lockheed Martin and IBM who will pass on the data to government agencies which may or may not be used for sinister purposes."
If we stepped back in time, we would realize that census data is extremely powerful in anyone's hands, but what if those hands were Hitler's? That infamous war criminal relied on IBM Census data in WWII to fuel the war machine. The census data provided by IBM to Nazi Germany was used for planning invasion and occupation plans for Europe and provided key information to the Nazis to exterminate the non compliant races.
Edwin Black, author of IBM and the Holocaust, and an award-winning, investigative journalist for the New York Times, painstakingly documented how IBM's Dohemag subsidiary was integral to the Nazi killing machine by providing the necessary automation to 'locate all the Jews of Europe.' As the Third Reich embarked upon its plan of conquest and genocide, IBM and its subsidiaries helped create enabling technologies, step-by-step, from the Census, to identification and cataloging programs of the 1930's, to the selections of the 1940's.
According to IBM's historical archives, German inventor Herman Hollerith developed and patented census tabulating equipment in the late Nineteenth Century. The mock-up below represents the machine used by the U.S. Census Bureau in compiling the 1890 Census.
This equipment is representative of the tabulating system invented and developed by Herman Hollerith (1860-1929) and built for the U.S. Census Bureau. These machines were first used in compiling the 1890 Census. IBM History.
Hollerith's patents were acquired by the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Co. (which later became IBM), and this work became the basis of the IBM Punch Card System. But when IBM Germany formed its philosophical and technological alliance with Nazi Germany, census and registration took on a new mission. IBM Germany invented the racial census--listing not just religious affiliation, but bloodline going back generations. This was the Nazi data lust. Not just to count the Jews--but to identify them. Hooray for IBM work experience and double hooray for an IBM proven track record!
"We appreciate the Census Bureau's continued confidence in IBM to support their efforts," said John Nyland, Managing Partner, IBM Global Business Services, Public Sector obviously reflecting on the fact "Working with our business partners, IBM is helping the Census Bureau with innovative approaches to flexible and timely data analysis and dissemination." IBM is also supporting the Census Bureau as a subcontractor to Lockheed Martin on the Decennial Response Integration System (DRIS) 2010 data collection contract. Yes that's right, the world's largest defense contractor by revenue is working with IBM to ensure America is counted. But let's not get alarmed. Let's remember the US Census Bureau advertisement...."It's easy, it's important, its safe! ... It's safe!"
In 2005, Lockheed Martin won the contract to develop the Decennial Response Integration System (DRIS) in order to:
Receive, capture, and standardize census data provided by respondents via census forms and telephone agents;
Provide assistance to the public through the telephone; and
Receive standardized data collected via hand-held computers.
In 2007, IBM joined the team, subcontracting with BAE Systems, ESRI, Space-Time Research, SAS, M-Cubed, Roundarch, Dataline, FWG, Measurable Results, RCM, PKW, Fenestra, and Acumen Solutions. 
In 2009, ACORN the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, also joined the Census team.
So what exactly are we concerned about? Are we saying that IBM and Lockheed Martin have used temporary public servants to undertake their cloaked military GPS Census operation? That's precisely what we are saying. Let us be crystal clear: if US Census workers were armed with their GPS and dressed in IBM/Lockheed Martin military apparel, there would be an outcry and perhaps an awakening on what is happening to the constitutional rights of Americans. But IBM has shown great veiling expertise and US citizens have barely noticed a massively organized militarization of their information quietly occurring, shrouded in a cloak and dagger US Census Bureau marketing campaign. It can't get any more intimate and personal than your front door GPS coordinates, can it?
The question we must now ask, 'Why are they doing this and what will they do with the information?'
