Atlanta rapper Chris “Ludacris” Bridges has teamed up with theU.S. Census.
In a statement, Ludacris explained why he’s gotten on board with the Census, a partnership meant to encourage people to fill out their forms. Census data help direct federal dollars to various communities.
“I look at our communities now and I see many empty lots, closed clinics, dilapidated schools and an overall breakdown of social services for the poor and elderly,” he said. “Today is a day for change.”
He plans appearances in a number of cities including Dallas, New Orleans, Orlando, New York and Washington as well as Atlanta, where he’ll be pounding the pavement on April 9.
“I plan to knock on doors in various neighborhoods around this country to try and dispel any myths about the Census,” Ludacris said. “It’s important that we all stand up and be counted so we can help create potential financial opportunities for our dying communities.”
Now Luda seems like a man who enjoys his privacy in addition to his second amendment rights, so I must wonder how he would act if a temp worker acting under the authority of the United States Federal government started asking questions like he was on an interactive episode of MTV Cribs.
Is there a block on the form for “Get up out my face, you couldn’t relate, wait to take place at a similar pace so shake, shake it”?

Here’s a transcript, from RushLimbaugh.com: You know, I have a theory, folks. I think one | Read More »
Since Obamacare passed, Colorado’s Medicaid rolls have more than doubled–including a large addition of able-bodied, childless adults – and it’s only going to get worse. Enterprising the fee will not fix the fact that our state elected officials opted into Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion, burdening our taxpayers and syphoning funds from the budget. Currently, 1 in 4 Coloradans are on Medicaid, when just six years ago it was 1 in 10. This move has aided in pushing our state budget spending on healthcare to well over 30%.

I have changed the wording of the article accordingly to reflect it was her supporters who did this and not her campaign. It’s like a real life episode of ‘Friends’ except this time it’s Grandma Moses with the problem. Hillary Clinton’s supporters launched a social | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES I guess the general assumption out there is that everyone on the Republican side is falling in line behind Donald Trump. The reality, however, is a little more complicated. Today, Rep. Ryan Zinke of Montana endorsed Trump – which shockingly made him only the 12th sitting member of Congress to formally endorse Trump. How anemic is Trump’s support among | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Via Realtimepolitics, President Obama gave a press conference during his Asia trip this morning, and he was asked for his opinion on the increasingly contentious Democratic primary.
