DOJ Looking at Options to Add Citizenship Question
Lawyers for the Department of Justice told a federal judge in Maryland Friday afternoon that the Trump administration will continue to explore options of adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census, but made no mention of a potential executive order being considered by the White House. Judge George Hazel nevertheless ordered the government to begin producing details about how the citizenship issue was handled in a lawsuit brought by immigrant rights groups who argue it is discriminatory. An administration official stressed that as of now the census will be printed without the citizenship question, though discussions are continuing about how to challenge last week's Supreme Court ruling blocking the Census Bureau from adding it to the questionnaire.https://edition.cnn.com/2019/07/05/politics/census-citizenship-question-deadline-donald-trump/index.html?utm_content=2019-07-05T17%3A00%3A05&utm_term=link&utm_medium=social&utm_source=fbCNNi&fbclid=IwAR1cG9JVTQw3GkaZXP502SpORuFcPr8JopJhinvQIkiWqhGrPDJm-1MX4OU

Let Go Of Everything Happens For A Reason
We've colloquialized the notion of there being a reason for everything to the point of absurdity. It's not that "reason" is completely absent from our lives, or that it should be, but that we use it as a crutch for avoiding growth and often look for it in all the wrong places; a higher power, fate, a preordained script for our life, a greater purpose, or some omnipotent force of the universe that knows what's best for us. What if it's none of the above?
