An item on this year’s Census form has caused a little bit of a stir:

null

Even though the word has appeared on the Census form in the past, the Census Bureau, in their infinite wisdom, has decided it might be wise to offset some of the criticism.

With that in mind, all forms distributed for the remainder of the year have been amended to include this subtle addition:

null

    Where's the box for Italian American?

    I'm looking for the box for "Muslim jihadist." Must be an oversight.

    White, Caucasian, Honky, Cracka, Racist, Obama Hater, Religous Nut, Conservative, Home Grown Military Terrorist, Swastika Bearer, Tea Bagger

    There fixed it. Added ACORN's and Nancy Pelosi's two cents worth.

    Wouldn't it just be nice if the box said: Legal yes or no
    Illegal yes or no

    Recently, I found the 2010 Census form hanging on my door. As I began filling it out, I came across a dilemma. The U.S. government wants to know if my children are adopted or not and it wants to know what our races are. Being adopted myself, I had to put “Other” and “Don’t Know Adopted” for my race and “Other” and “Don’t Know” for my kids’ races. ____Can you imagine not knowing your ethnicity, your race? Now imagine walking into a vital records office and asking the clerk for your original birth certificate only to be told “No, you can’t have it, it’s sealed.” ____Imagine being asked what your nationality is and having to respond with “I don’t know”.____It is time that the archaic practice of sealing and altering birth certificates of adopted persons stops. ____Adoption is a 5 billion dollar, unregulated industry that profits from the sale and redistribution of children. It turns children into chattel who are re-labeled and sold as “blank slates”. ____I challenge all readers: Ask the adopted persons that you know if their original birth certificates are sealed. __
