"...My hair's mostly wind,

My eyes filled with grit

My skin's white then brown

My lips chapped and split

I've lain on the prairie and heard grasses sigh

I've stared at the vast open bowl of the sky

I've seen all the castles and faces in clouds

My home is the prairie and for that I am proud…

If You're not from the Prairie, you can't know my soul

You don't know our blizzards; you've not fought our cold

You can't know my mind, nor ever my heart

Unless deep within you there's somehow a part…

A part of these things that I've said that I know,

The wind, sky and earth, the storms and the snow.

Best say that you have - and then we'll be one,

For we will have shared that same blazing sun." - David Bouchard

SERIOUSLY?? this is a question to get a passport??

“Please describe the circumstances of your birth including the names (as well as address and phone number, if available) of persons present or in attendance at your birth.”

Not even my parents would remember this... lol

Hope that this is not used, even selectively as they say.

It's ridiculous, right? Name your mother's address before she gave birth to you? How is that even relevant?

how in the world would they even verify that kind of information? seems the process for getting a passport would take years!

honestly, i think they are putting this in place just so they can selectively deny people 'they' have on certain 'lists'. you know like, hippies and other degenerates : )

I think everyone intending to vote "yes" should be made to apply for a passport using the new system prior to voting. :)

agree!

This website says theres a question on the form asking - " the name and location of the place where you were circumcised. "

How does THAT have anything to do with a passport!!

Tis not, unfortunately.

I have been reading some more info on it this morning. Especially this.

The passport process should be in such a way that important information is recorded and appropriate documents proving citizenship are required. Providing my first holy communion document (which I do happen to have...my mum kept EVERYTHING) is a joke because it does nothing to prove my actual citizenship. I could have been in any country legally and still had a holy communion or a confirmation, etc.

I'm disappointed though since I was hoping to get a US passport sooner rather than later. There is no way in hell I could complete something like that though.

What about people who are adopted after birth and do not know anything of their birth parents? The questions are absolutely redundant for US citizenship..

Has it been passed and is it now part of getting a US passport? or is it still being debated.

#######. I guess I should have applied for citizenship last year. :(

I've postponed it because I'm having a hard time dealing with it.

Mind you, it'll probably take them forever to implement. And I think it said only "certain" applicants had to provide that kind of detail.

Krikit,

If I wasn't trying to get back to Canada so badly I would NEVER apply for it. I really don't like the idea of an oath of allegiance. It just makes me feel weird and almost hypocritical.

Inky,

What I have heard, is that this group The Identity Project is claiming the US State Department is already using a similar form for the passport that has not been approved by the proper authorities.

Name the circumstances of your birth? Well, my mum said I slid out so fast the Doc had to catch me! haha Come on!

This application will not be required of everyone, just those with irregular birth recordd.

This application is primarily directed at home birth situations near the southern border. They are trying to document the claim to citizenship. there has been lots of controversy on "mid-wife" birth documents in the border states.
