Perspectiva Obscura: Census determines Federal money distribution


As I said two weeks ago, I am no fan of the current occupant of the White House. In fact, it’s not much of a stretch to predict that he will go down in history as the worst president ever placed in that office.

Now it appears (again) he does not know what the United States Constitution is. Even though he swore to “faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

He fails to understand that he does not have unlimited power when it comes to whatever Twitter whim or rant strikes him at 3 a.m. But after the Supreme Court block his Census Question asking everyone if they are a citizen of the United State Thursday, he simply wants to delay counting the number of human beings in the United States.

Evidentially, he fails to recognize all that the Census entails, including how $800 billion Federal money is distributed to local communities for “public services like roads, schools and hospitals for the next 10 years” and redrawing Congressional Districts, among many other uses.

Maybe someone should use crayons and make him a drawing of the Constitution. He might understand that.

Just wait until I tell him about moon rocks, because, yes, I have held one and the only thing that makes them special is where they came from. That’s it. They are gray and dirty.
