"If we concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles"

By Junius P. Long
Food For Thought
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 country 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 country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If the only school curriculum allowed to explain how we got here is evolution, but the government stops a $15 million construction project to keep a rare spider from evolving to extinction ... you might live in a country 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 country 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 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt ... you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

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 might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

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 might live in a country 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 country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher "cute," but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable ... you might live in a country 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 country 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 country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

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 might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more "safe" according to the government ... you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

  1. Yep, I do think that you nailed it down. We geniuses voted for and elected idiotic lawyers to "govern" our country. Not a one did I choose; but, "we" done did it to ournselfs.

    We let them buy and lie for our votes. Roman bread and circuses all over again. Only from within were we defeated. Now, we must fight again. The ballot box must be our first battlefield and communication with those we elect be our ammunition. The country was taken from idiots once before; perhaps we can do it again, with no shots fired.

    I pray that this is what comes to pass. You know the rest.

  3. He puts the J in jenius thats fur sure. That feller is one smart potato. Glad to see an American who doesn't take a dime from the government. Nope, no Social Security or Medicare for him. I bet he never even went to any public school. Doubt he was ever unemployed with all his smarts. Heck he probably spit on the WPA workers during the depression. He proves that evolution is a bunch of patui cus we shore would have evolved by now. And edumacation, who need that anyway. Our kids would be better off just sittin around a camp fire lisnen to his wisdumb. Wouldn't need to lern a trade or get a job or support your family. You could just complain about the government full time eatin fried food with your big ol ars on a chase lounge.

    3. Bet he was homeschooled! Ha! Don't get me started on that . . . now THAT is something that should be either illegal or strictly regulated.

    4. As stupid as you think he is those ARE truisms. Oh and we all have been paying for SSI and Medicare,
      that is unless you just arrived.

  4. It's refreshing to see write ups like this. Makes me miss my grandad's rants. He get's the cranky old man pass with the welfare stuff, and I'll even let him off the evolution hook. People from that generation are awesome. People have a hard time understanding gun control. A person much wiser than me made the perfect analogy; "you can't put the toothpaste back in the tube". Speaking of course on the subject of guns and trying to control them. Guns are already on the street. Gun laws empower those who do not follow them. Defending yourself from a large, potentially volatile government that encroaches on personal liberties is what the second amendment is about.

  5. > you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but
    > not for being in the country illegally

    False. Border Patrol officers and other law enforcement arrested
    365,000 illegal aliens in 2012; hunting without a license ("poaching")
    rarely earns one more than a monetary fine in most states. -

    2. You are right - but I don't hear anybody complaining when someone is arrested for fishing without a license, but there is a big out cry whenever someone in the country illegally is arrested!

  6. 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

    False. 37 states require parental consent or notification for a minor to have an
    abortion. -

    1. Once again, you are right, but how many of these laws have been challenged in court in an attempt to over throw them, yet I don't think the matter of parents needing to sign off on school field trips has ever been a matter of Supreme Court attention.

  7. the only school curriculum allowed to explain how we got here is evolution

    False. Evolution doesn't claim to explain "how we got here," only how species change.
    Also, at least 300 schools that receive public funds in the US currently teach
    "creationism." -

    -----------------------------------------

    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.

    False. 30 states currently require some form of ID when voting, 7 other states have
    passed ID laws that will soon go into effect, and most remaining states have similar
    legislation pending. -

    1. And how many of these 300 school districts have been taken to court for allowing this? Of the 30 + 7 states how many have these laws have not been challenged?

  8. in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda

    False. The New York "soda law" was struck down by a judge *before* it went into effect. -

    -----------------------------------------

    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

    False. Travelers who object to the body scanners used by TSA are subject to "intensive
    pat downs" administered by a same-sex member of the TSA, there is no exemption for Muslim
    women or anyone else. -

    1. Whoa, how about that, common sense has actually won out on this one! No, actually I believe the City is still insisting it is right in pursuing this policy.

      While your recounting of the TSA rules may be correct, the fact is such events have happened and no one has ever complained that a white male being searched is part of a pattern of stereo-typing.

  9. children are forcibly removed from parents who discipline them with spankings while
    children of addicts are left in filth and drug infested “homes”

    False. Every state has provisions for removing children from "filth and drug infested
    homes." Use of corporal punishment in a home is legal in all 50 states. -

    -----------------------------------------

    not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing and
    free cell phones

    False. These "rewards" are indexed to income, not employment. Whether you work or not,
    you can qualify for EBT, WIC and Medicaid if you're below the poverty line (many people
    working full time jobs for minimum wage, for example, are still below the poverty line).
    There are programs that provide low interest *loans* for phones or small discounts off a
    monthly phone bill, but no one gets free cell phones from the government except elected
    officials... -

    -----------------------------------------

    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

    False. Unemployment checks come with strict requirements for documenting employment
    applications. And the checks are too small to constitute an "incentive," otherwise
    (obviously) most people would quit their jobs... -

      -------------------
      That's why Inmates around the country have been collecting unemployment for who knows how long. By "strict requirements" did you mean have a pulse? - Nah, that can't be it since dead people have and continue to receive unemployment.

    2. While some of what you say is valid, you miss the whole point here that over the past 40 years government has become more intrusive into our everyday lives, yet there is little benefit to show for all this over zealousness on the part of bureaucrats. Our nation was founded on the principles of limited government and high self reliance. People who came here from far off shores did so for the opportunity to improve themselves, without expecting anything in return. When the only way here was to cross the oceans, you did not have the ability to sneak in and than claim the right to the benefits of citizenship.

      Yes, there are many people in the world who would benefit from living in this country, but if we let them all come in, would that immediately make everyone's life better? We need to do a better job as a nation in supporting the growth of true democracies where every person can have the same opportunities as we do in America, like we did following WWII, but then again, it seems our government can't even figure out how to do this so well anymore these days.

      One last comment, before you post anything in response to everything I've said, I would ask that you have the decency and respect to show who you are. That would be the measure of a true patriot!

  10. One thing you are very wrong about is unemployment (and I know, because I was unemployed and desperately seeking work). First, you have to keep a log of the places you applied at, and if you get called in and DON'T have that - or have false info - you are in big trouble. Second, you can NOT live for very long on what you get in unemployment, it is much less than earnings. So please, don't put people who have worked all of their lives and are laid off so big corps can make even more money in the same boat as illegals and welfare moochers.

  16. I find it a curiousity that people are saying we done it to ourselves---that shows real ignorance of massive proportions---there has been campaigns against citizens since the 1st world war media---music---outside influences have been manipulating the whole thing making all of us feel guilty for something we have been railroaded into --music with programs have been playing since the 70's telling us all what was going to be done and then immediately with frequencies shut down people with there adjustments---drugs were releases and introduced as a way to open your minds---it did and what was put in there was BS and designer plans to get us all to think the way outside forces wanted to think making us all vulnerable to the state we are in today---the last 4-5 administration in federal gov't across the planet would not have been in office nor would they have been left to live much less rule but because the poisoning of the mind s and rejecting high spiritual values we have had outside forces control us all with deceptions and BS---so we did not do this we were controlled without our awareness-- or should say full awareness----Hate and destruction to Mankind---poisoning there brainwashed minds--- sorcerers of death's construction---for most who are not aware this was laid out in the 70's --electric eye in the sky ---again in the 70's ---and you seen it and then was put back to a sleeping state---through frequency modulation and distortion of sorcery ( pharmaceutical drugs) flouride and other metals were being ingested as well to dull the wits---amazing how we did it to ourselves when sorcerers weaved there chemicals ( GE GMO -SOY-CANOLA-ASPARTAME-Aluminum--Themerserol-etc) frequencies was the music and still today--with the added amplifiers installed--towers- HAARP-----being loaded with nanoparticles --once charged they form latices and replicate further breaking down the foundations and allowing the frequencies to become more amplified ( notice the crime and the types of crimes will become more hidious and the perpetrators will not remember or think they are hallucinating--MKULTRA using sorcery-drugs and pharmacopeia) so before you blame yourselves remember the TV is doing more then just transmitting a signal---and your radios are doing more then just transferring a signal---you maybe surprise when you hear a tune or a sequence of TV shows how you will still hear or see them weeks after you have shut off the devices---these tings are a frequency---and they are a program---re writing your thinking process
    so who is really the blame!!??
