"A country run by idiots.........."

This was all emailed to me and I had to share it.

 
 
Food For Thought
 
If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally ... you might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion ... You might live in a country run by idiots.

If the only school curriculum allowed to explain how we got here is evolution, but the government stops
a $15 million construction project to keep a rare spider from evolving to extinction ... You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote who runs the government ... You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than
ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt ... You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat ... You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to
having her neck and head searched ... You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions
more ... You might live in a country run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher’s "cute," but hosting a sexual
exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable ... You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If children are forcibly removed from parents who discipline them with spankings while children of addicts
are left in filth and drug infested “homes”... You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working
is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing and free cell phones ... You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If the government's plan for getting people back to work is to incentivize NOT working with 99 weeks
of unemployment checks and no requirement to prove they applied but can’t find work ... You might live in a country run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more "safe" according to the government ... You might live in a country run by idiots.



Z:   so............which of this do you disagree with?  I'd be interested in hearing.........let's talk about it.


have a great Thursday.

I have concluded that we live in a country run by idiots.

Politics can only attract people who think talking has more value than creating something, people who'd be the mid or top manager in the private sector who advances by kissing ass or stealing people's ideas because that's the only way for them to succeed. Some are idiots, some are frauds, and a tiny portion is really worth something.

Only in politics can someone show his private part and try to be the next NYC mayor. In the private sector, the guy would've been fired and would have a very hard time finding a new job if employers knew of that.

We've really reached the fork in the road. We can take the hard trail towards maintaining a Constitutional Republic, or we can take the moving sidewalk towards Idiocracy.

Our society has devolved into one fueled by contrived drama and cheap sensationalism; one where even most of the politically attuned rely on soundbites and bumper stickers over research and logic.

Well, that's what happens when the votes of idiots outnumber the rest. How much fun would it be, out driving around, if the DMV just issued Driver's Licenses to anyone,carte blanche? OK, so why then is electing those who will have influence on all aspects of our lives and voting on issues equally important treated with such indifference, comparatively speaking? Why should everyone have to suffer from the bad judgement of "IDIOTS"???? Free cell phones, anyone?

I agree with Joe, wholeheartedly.

Weak-minded, easily influenced morons.
