What, exactly, is an "Invent-A-Law"?
It's a law concocted solely for the purpose of controlling people, or to satisfy the whims of a "special interest" faction, as opposed to honestly being in the interest of public safety or dealing with moral character or public behavior like most average quintessential laws (presumably) do.

The worst offenders are usually government agencies and local municipalities.

Take the U.S. Census Bureau's "American Community Survey" for example.  The underlying idea is to gather current information about pubic facilities and services: hospitals, schools, emergency services, businesses, etc., for the purpose of balancing out any inadequacies and filling in any "missing links" where needed.

No problem there.  But they mention "You are required by U.S. law to respond to this survey".  Does this mean that, if you toss out the form or simply ignore it, you stand to be "criminalized"?  A bit extortive don't you think?

While I respect the premise and intent of this project I'm still bothered and miffed by their license to invade our entitlement to freedom-of-choice.


  1. Lawmakers are a special breed of humanity.
    They never sweat or shit.
    They never raise their voices when upset.
    They never thrown things across the room when frustrated.
    That's why they get to judge the rest of us.

    1. There wasn't even one questions about any public services or road repairs, nor about any schools or hospitals, nor inquiries about stores or businesses.
      Every question they asked only concerned their interest in me: How many are living in my household?; What is (my) income and what is the source of (my) income? What type of residential unit do (I) reside in?
      Questions like that. All they were doing was gathering (general) information on ME. It had nothing to do with "neighborhoods" or "schools" or "traffic patterns" or "street repairs" or anything else like that.
