    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 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.

    No Worries DL , As long as it is remembered ..I can't believe the amount of import folks who get our tax money stay for a 5 year period on OUR dime , get citizenship , import another member & then go home , only to return for any medical repair on OUR tax dollar. It's rampant in many cultures across Canada.. Bet ya never knew.
