America: A Country Run by Idiots

  1. If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally, you live in a country run by idiots.
  2. 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 live in a country run by idiots.
  3. 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 on who runs the government, you live in a country run by idiots.
  4. 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 leaders in Egypt, you live in a country run by idiots.
  5. 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 live in a country run by idiots.
  6. 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 live in a country run by idiots.
  7. If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more, you live in a country run by idiots.
  8. If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of grade school for saying his teacher’s “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable, you live in a country run by idiots.
  9. 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 live in a country run by idiots.
  10. 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 live in a country run by idiots.
  11. If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government, you live in a country run by idiots.
    Betcha you can come up with more!  :D

Well dice it is mostly old white men who run the country. I would tend to agree with the part about y’all being idiots, finer points aside Haha!

If they were merely idiots it would a blessing, you can forgive idiots since
we allowed them into power. I believe It’s alot worse than that. Like in organized institutionalized evil. We need Divine aid!https://www.rosesfromheaven.com/

If you have a population that believes politicians over science, facts, evidence, the Laws of Physics, and experts in their fields, then you live in a country populated by idiots. ESPECIALLY after said politicians have been caught in criminal lies – and are still re-elected.

Americans are great at ‘pointing the finger’ – it’s always “someone else is to blame”, or, “if only MY party were in charge….” Never accepting responsibility.
So I’ll leave all with the immortal words of American journalist H.R.Mencken;
“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

for the record Jesus @ John 8:44 describes their “progenitor” and describes them as children of the devil…at that time they were identified as the money changers and pharisees….seeking “Proselytes” whether thru
bribery, extortion, or blackmail…
and the other side of that coin is the “society” of idiots that worship
‘Faux- Authority”…simply because “They” print the currency and own the media and operate a crack house called “Congress” the exact opposite of

PROGRESS…..
Stupid will never change true…but don’t tell the braindeadgoy….who have an immense amount of emotional capital invested in all the lies….

If you think people in caves can make buildings explode into dust in 11 seconds because a plane hit them you deserve to have your life run by idiots.

You must be an expert in that Common Core math: “The South Tower collapsed at 9:59 a.m. after burning for 56 minutes in a fire caused by the impact of United Airlines Flight 175 and the explosion of its fuel. The North Tower collapsed at 10:28 a.m. after burning for 102 minutes.”

Correct on timing, and using your Common Core physics I will add (and I can as I have been in the steel construction business with my hands and sweat for the past 42 years), steel melts at 2750 deg F. Jet fuel burns at 800 deg F. How in the hell can you melt steel with this disparity in temperature? Steel was seen melting and dripping from these buildings, explosions were going off. Steel does not even start losing it’s strength at 800 degrees. Explain please. And on top of that why did WTC7 (which was not hit by ANYTHING),… Read more »

Thankfully I am out of school and have avoided Common Core teachings. Since you are the steel expert, you must also be aware of the many aspects of structural engineering. There are other factors beyond temperature that contributed to the collapse: surface area, yield stress, load-carrying capacity, oxygen, weight loads, connection stability, absorption, surface area, etc. WTC7 was hit by large debris which started fires. As for sources, you have plenty to pursue on the internet (my info previously posted was obtained on Wiki). Jon Magnusson, a structural engineer for the original WTC is also a good source. Given your… Read more »

I do believe sir that J-dog made the statement about two buildings falling in 11 seconds.now I didn’t want to jump to conclusions but I think he’s talking about the twin towers.

The quote on your masthead “telling the truth is a revolutionary act” is from George Orwell, unless I’m very much mistaken. Orwell was a revolutionary libertarian socialist with strong anarchist leanings. He sought to overthrow the kind of society you advocate and to replace it with an egalitarian leftist society which I guess would give you guys the heeby jeebies. He fought in the Spanish Civil War in a Trotskyist militia, but would have prefered to have been among the anarchists. His experience in Barcelona in 1936, when he was in the thick of the anarchist revolution there, changed his… Read more »

12: If you live in a city, county, or state that is going bankrupt and have been run by the same one party for 40 or 50 years. And the current politicians running say they will fix it by doing more of the same, you live in a country run by idiots.
