- The Census envelope arrived yesterday and with it came
some very interesting new information. On the face of the envelope under
the line: U. S. Census Form Enclosed is the very large and very bold STATEMENT:
- YOUR RESPONSE
- IS REQUIRED BY LAW
- Then centered at the top of the Envelope was this 'creative'
Logo from the U. S. Department of Commerce Economics and Statistics Administration,
U. S. Census Bureau
- Under a magnifying glass, you can easily read the "R"
inside the circle directly to the right of the "s" in 'United
States'. This symbol "®" stands for "registered"
as in a commercial registration of this image; indicating that the phrase
it follows is privately owned and that any use of it (in this case the
two words 'United States') beyond the 'owners' specific authorization is
- THE QUESTION IS:
- "Who OWNS the registration of the words 'United
States' when these two words are being used together to define not just
an aspect of this Republic; but the entirety of the nation as a state and
as a country? And: If those two words can be privately owned and then used
in the process that counts the people, to determine how much money each
district will receive, based on population-numbers: What does this say
about the "nation" that has now obviously become privately owned;
not to mention the people within what has become a privately held corporation?
Have the people of what was the United States without the®, been purchased;
along with the actual former name of this country?
- So - WHO OWNS US! - NOW"
