    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 nation

    founded by geniuses but 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 nation founded by geniuses but 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 nation founded by geniuses but run by

    idiots.




    If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning

    gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter

    jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a nation

    founded by geniuses but run by idiots.




    If, in the nation’s 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 nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.




    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl confined to a

    wheelchair can be strip-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

    nation founded by geniuses but 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 nation

    founded by geniuses but run by idiots.




    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his

    teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class

    in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation

    founded by geniuses but 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 nation founded by geniuses

    but 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 nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.




    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide

    incentives for not working through 99 weeks of unemployment checks,

    without any requirement to prove they sought, but couldn’t find, work —

    you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.




    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big

    screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, wall-sized plasma

    do-it-all TV’s and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when

    he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a nation founded by

    geniuses but run by idiots.







    What a country!!!!
