The President of the United States wants to add a citizenship question to the national census. He wants to ask, Are you a citizen? No one has an accurate count of how many illegal people there are in America. The President says that this question will count them.
One of the things that makes America great is that America treats citizens and non-citizens the same way. Sure there are exceptions, like voting or running for president, where you must be a citizen. Editorial comment – what’s with Ted Cruz. He was born in Canada and that makes him Canadian but he was allowed to run for president! If the President wants to ask citizen questions, he should ask, Why don’t you vote?
For the rest of us here in America, immigration is hardly the most important question we want answered. I can think of other far better questions to ask on the census. Here are five important questions that desperately need answers:
One – Here is an important question for all men (including the President) and for which no one really knows the true answer. What is the average penis size?
Two – Since men have tossed in a question, I shall put words into women’s mouth and pose a question on their behalf. Since women are complicated people, they get a two-part question. Part A, women have a penis question too - Why are men such dicks? Part B, How many women are natural blondes?
Three – I am surprised who turns out to be gay now that there is same sex-marriage and gay people have come out. I wonder how many gay people are there in the Country. So the question is, Are you gay? We can ask about transgender people too since Caitlyn Jenner has brought that question to national attention.
Four – Hollywood movies inspired this question. Not exactly a census type question but one we want answered anyway, What do women/men want?
Five – White people have long envied how minorities are blessed with all kinds of racial groupings. So, to foster camaraderie amongst all Americans, let's modify an old question to, What kind of white are you? White of No-color, Pinkie, A Swarthy type.
Write a letter to your Congressional Representative and let them know you have better questions to ask on the census. But, don't write the President a letter. Send him a tweet.
