A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

@dug: While out delivering stuff for the drugstore I worked for in high school, I stopped and listened for like a half hour in a parking lot to the North hearings. It was riveting and I finally understood what my parents experienced a decade and change earlier w/ WG.

Mornin' all! As a kid, I didn't have a concept of "dated references"-- if I saw Bugs Bunny make a joke about Eddie Cantor, or found an old National Lampoon with jokes about Spiro Agnew, I felt like the onus was on me to learn about them. I found out about a LOT of 20th century culture that way.

@SSS-can you please post a link about the pre-cursor census to WWII in Germany?
@ Ike-well, I think illegal aliens should not be here in the first place. But asking the census to do the work of ice is like asking the FBI to take kindergarten attendance. I also think Reagan was wrong to cut taxpayer funding to the Post Office. EVERY OTHER country has a state-funded post office, its job is to spread written information affordably for ALL citizens, confidentially.

They should just do the census via Facebook. 1-2-3, easy.

Cool @Brian, just glad at least someone remembers it.

no. all nations on earth should be encouraging less birth. there should be no "maintenance" of a population that surpassed the planet's ability to support it many decades ago.

When I was out of work a year (2010, hangover from 2008 crash), THANK GOD Obama extended Unemployment Insurance for a year.

@jdaFromCologne: 1.59 (your rate in Germany) is still not enough to keep a constant population. As for the US: www.vox.com...

@c∅: Agreed. But we're really just talking immigration, not world pop. If people move here from elsewhere, that's no addition the world population, and they'll be in a place where they might be able to learn about and/or get birth control more easily!

@ottovonbqe-I am sure you could always sue the Federal government and get a jury trial that is fair and affordable! Wait....maybe not...I honestly think you should just answer and avoid jail or a fine.

true,Ike, but Trouble actually WAS talking about birth rate.

@Ike: Learn more about and get birth control? From Mike Pence and pals?

You are probably right, but I got one of the long form things and it is longer than an SAT and very personal. I angrily threw it in the trash.

@coelacanth: i am not encouraging giant population growth but i am referring to the continued working of future generations as a way to pay for the services that are needed for the elderly as they begin to work less and need more

If obama didn't need to do a long form birth certificate, I shouldn't have to to do a long form census.
Avatar Thu. 7/19/18 11:42am SSS:

I just want to throw this out there. Forgive me for a biblical reference, but Moses debated this issue with God. Moses complains to God how difficult these people are to manage, that they want a King to lead them, and not just to rely on faith and being moral in behavior. God consels against it, saying if you establish a king, he will take a census, and use it to amass an army for wars. It has and always will be populists and fundamentalists that will destroy us.

Consumerism (and greed) and the pollution they produce are as much to blame for the planet's inability to support the life forms on it as how many people there are. A balance is required in everything.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/19/18 11:58am coelacanth∅:

Trouble @11.42 okay, but that's a vicious cycle. problems will continue to get worse as population increases. there's no rational argument against that. and Lucky (@11.47) is correct, but it is both the population and the selfish ways that people live. the us government encourages selfish living because it benefits their ulterior motives.
