SEARCH BLOG: GOVERNMENT
One can learn a lot from our government leaders. For example, I always thought that making a choice meant that a choice was actually made, but now I know that you can "deem" to have made a choice. This is very valuable information... especially when interacting with governmental agencies.
We just received this once-in-a-decade form from the government:
By all appearances, it is a form with filled with information from which you make choices to let the government know more about who is living where. Some portions contain many possibilities from which you have to choose. This is time-consuming. And sometimes what you think is right is not offered as a choice, so you have to spend more time actually writing in your choice.
Thanks to Reps. Pelosi and Slaughter, I have seen a far more efficient approach to getting things done with the government. Therefore, I have "deemed" to made my choices from all of the possible choices and am now free to return the form with my "deemed" answers.
Can there be anything better coming out of Washington D.C. than that? Oh, sure, you may have read this someplace:
Whoever, being over eighteen years of age, refuses or willfully neglects, when requested by the Secretary, or by any other authorized officer or employee of the Department of Commerce or bureau or agency thereof acting under the instructions of the Secretary or authorized officer, to answer, to the best of his knowledge, any of the questions on any schedule submitted to him in connection with any census or survey provided for by subchapters I, II, IV, and V of chapter 5 of this title, applying to himself or to the family to which he belongs or is related, or to the farm or farms of which he or his family is the occupant, shall be fined not more than $100.That's all taken care of now. As the old song goes, "All I have to do is deem." Maybe I should run for Congress....
