"If we concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles"

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 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, temporary 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 sexual diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable ...
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.


If you are offended by this article, I'll bet you voted
for those in office.  Let's make a change and get rid of the old timers in congress who have made a career out of an elected position.  It's time for some fresh ideas and people who vote for them instead of picking one side or the other.  Time to end the two party system and limit the time people spend getting wealthy from special interest groups.
