You Might Live in a Country that is Run by Idiots


YOU MIGHT LIVE IN A NATION THAT WAS FOUNDED BY GENIUSES BUT IS RUN BY IDIOTS:

If plastic water bottlers are okay, but plastic bags are banned...

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering & remaining in the country illegally...

If you have to get your parents' permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion...

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book, but not to vote for who runs the government...

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt...

If, in the nation's largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat...

If an 80 year-old woman who is confined to a wheelchair or a three year-old girl can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched...

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more...

If a seven year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is "cute", but hosting a sexual exploration class in grade school is perfectly acceptable...

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation & intrusion, while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones...

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, timeshares, a wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV, and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage...
