IS IT JUST ME or does anybody else seem something … unseemly in the let’s-all-divvy-up-the-loot theme to the Census’s TV ads urging compliance? Not one I’ve seen yet mentions the actual, constitutional reason for the Census — to apportion representatives to Congress. Instead, it’s all about “one for you, two for me” with stolen goods.
My only reason for hope for the American people is that large numbers of us have always been greedy parasites. That never changes. Which makes me think the patriotic individualists can prevail once more.
