Genius or Idiot and Political Malfeasance

In a political version of Jeff Foxworthy’s “You might be a redneck,” I submit the following with this disclaimer.

From Snopes: The original compiler of this list appears to be Fritz Edmunds, who posted it to his “Politically True” blog back on 3 February 2013 (albeit with a disclaimer noting that “some of the ideas were from an e-mail that did not contain any copyright”).

A Country Founded By Geniuses, But….. !!!

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, BUT, not for entering and remaining in the country illegally – you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, BUT, gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt – you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

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 – you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a wheelchair 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 – you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones – you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was diligently sought, but couldn’t be found – you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage – you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country – you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your government endorses a hodgepodge of fractionalized miscreant squatters who “occupy” any space they have no legal right to for more than a day, protesting a vast array of imperceptible perceptions of oppression and inequality, resulting in chaotic tarp “cities” with rape guards, marxist defecators, lewd and lascivious street sex, “acceptable” broken windows, drug induced “camp” fires, not to mention body stench and “music” that would make swine flee their sties, BUT, that same government labels Christians, Constitutionalists, veterans, Tea Party patriots, law abiding gun owners and just traditional conservative folks as the greatest terrorist threats this country faces – you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you can be cited for building a structure or drilling a well without a permit OR arrested for cutting down trees on your own property, BUT, your Mayor (Baltimore) publicly expresses that we’ve got to let the rioting protesters “vent” their anger, let them destroy stuff so they don’t end up destroying stuff – you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your government can destroy your livelihood by regulating entire industries into near oblivion, to spare the lives of the mustard fern, the unspotted canker gnat and the rainbow babies breath flower, BUT, spends hundreds of millions of your dollars annually to support an industry that holds sole “legal” proprietorship to murder hundreds of thousands of helpless innocent children in the womb, while overlooking the sales of infant body parts, ghastly displayed on trays like day old sushi in your least favorite Oriental restaurant – you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

What a country! Doesn’t sound very “progressive,” does it?

How about we try to give God a reason to bless America again?
