Census 2010 – Just move the Genitals out of the way Please

So I sent in the Census form yesterday. I never let the Good Mrs. T have a look at it; I filled her part out myself. I did answer all the questions for her as if she would have, I am sure. Not so for me, simply my race as an "American" and that was it.

So when I told her I mailed the form out she was a bit ticked off and I am being chartable when I say that, because I did not let her see it first. She was also mad that I did not account for our kids (Question #10 allows you to answer if you are a "part time" resident because of Military Service or temporary employment elsewhere). I know the military will account for SN2 and an enumerator will count my daughter there in the back woods of West By God Virginia.

So to calm her I decide to find her a copy of the form online that I can show her and maybe placate her rage, such as it is. Not that she needs an excuse to be mad at me, I give her plenty but this is something well you know, petty.

That leads me to this, I am on the US Government's Census website and I see this handy little tableau of "Help" videos:

Yes, that's LGBT for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered.

On a US Government web site. AND in Spanish for those LGBT that are Hispanic. WTF!!

Just to make sure I pressed the button to make sure it was in fact what I thought.

Now, I see this and I wonder since I filled out my form in like 6 or 7 seconds, how in the hell could someone that is simply Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgendered need "Help" in dong this form? IN Spanish too?

What the HELL is going on, I mean come on, we are being spent into the biggest debt hole known to mankind and we are spending money to provide help for LGBT's.

It just stuns the mind. And you know there are people out there that truly need help but we spent that money here. Our government at work. We are screwed as a nation.

BT: Jimmy T sends.
