Anyone who thinks that all this hoopla about our government ‘mining data’ on law-abiding citizens (as well as business and industry) is just hoopla had better take another look at all the ways it's being used.  Our 'right to privacy' is dwindling every day.  Obama's latest push is to use the strong arm of the government to change the make-up of our neighborhoods.

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan (Housing and Urban Development) announced the latest government database and regulations on July 16, 2013 at the NAACP convention…

The problem, according to the Obama administration:  prospective minority buyers are not being encouraged to move into predominantly white neighborhoods with top-notch schools, government services and amenities like grocery stories, etc.

The solution:  “ to punish lack of inclusion.”  In other words, there will be fines and prosecutions for people and/or agencies who actively seek to keep neighborhoods segregated.  The government will withhold “federal funds from local and state government agencies dependent on HUD grants if they fail to push greater diversity. The way those agencies interact with developers, Realtors, homeowners associations and others would need to reflect the federal push for diversity.

A new interactive database will help regulators, local housing officials and individuals take action on a newly proposed regulation that would require agencies to “affirmatively further” the inclusion of minority residents in white neighborhoods.
Sooooo…… to this end,  HUD is mapping the nation’s communities, based on census data, “to score communities on their racial and ethnic concentrations, as well as income and community services.” [BTW – I suppose, in an effort to not discriminate, dots representing black residents will be green, while those representing white residents will be blue.  Too funny!]

These ‘maps’ will then be used to implement Obama’s new ‘housing policy’ of mandatory diversity.   Federal funding will be the carrot and the stick.  

This is the same government that rounded up the American Indians and put them on reservations for the last 200 years.  How's THAT working out for you?

Don’t ya just love data mining and Big Brother!
