A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots

A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots
Foxworthy is probably on the top kill list for his rational comments!

Jeff Foxworthy:

image002If 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 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 –
you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check,
buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote
for who runs the government –
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 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 that was founded by geniuses but is 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 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 being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself makes you
more “safe” according to the government –
you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

What a country!
