Well I’m afraid that someone is gonna have to help this old gal out on this one.
So there’s this citizenship census question thingy that seems to have the world up in arms right now. It appears that the Supreme Court said that the Trump administration has the right to put the question on the form but couldn’t because he said he was a gonna do it for one thing but he actually meant he was gonna do it for something else completely. So now they’s got to go back and say they want it back on for the other reason that some other politicians said wasn’t right in the first place.
God Almighty folks, I gotta sit down before my head spins right off.
Here’s the way I see it and feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. Seems people are saying that it ain’t right to ask if you are a citizen of the United States or not. Well last time I looked, it was called the United States Census Bureau and they’s wanting to know all about people whose living in the United States. We got to tell em how old we are, If’n we are Native American and so forth. I mean, I don’t think the revenuers should be able to tell me whether or not I can make corn liquor but they do. I suppose, if they was to put a question on the census that asks, “Do you make illegal corn whisky?” I’m gonna just answer NO! Besides, I think a bigger concern would be the question that asks if your Hispanic, Latino or Spanish. Now I’m probably just some old country hick, but I gotta ask. Ain’t they the same?
So I don’t understand what the big tadoo is all about. It’s not like the question has never been on a census form before. If you’re curious about that you can go to the Google and ask about the census questions. Seems this question (in one version or another) was on the form in 1820,1830,1870,1890,1900,1910,1920,1930,1940,1950,1970,1980,1990 and 2000.
So to make a long story short, of all the Bazillions of problems facing the world today, our congressmen and women decide this is the thing that we should be wasting or time and money on.
You ever wonder just what would happen if on election day, every single person wrote on their ballot…”NONE OF THE ABOVE”
Till next time friends…
