    Food for Thought

    sharing something that I found sad but true....

    "If we concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there would 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 live in a country run by ******.

    If you have to get your parent's permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you live in a country
    run by ******.

    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 live in a country run by ******.

    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 ******.

    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 ******.

    If an 80-year-old woman can be strip-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 ******.

    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 ******.

    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 live in a country run by ******.

    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 ******.

    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 cannot find work, you live in a country run by ******.

    If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more safe according to the government, you live in a country run by ******.

    If you are offended by this article, I'll bet you voted for the ****** who are running our great country into the ground.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA

    Reads like a George Carlin stand-up.
    Current dogma holds that citizens have a duty to defer to any order issued by an armed individual dressed in a State-issued costume.


    This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.

    Received it in an email from my mother....I did leave the name that was given as the author in place although I have no way of knowing if that is who really wrote it.....could be someone trying to take credit for another's work....so as far as I can tell, I did the best I could to give credit where credit was due. If you can think of something else I didn't try please let me know.

    Please do not get confused between my personality & my attitude. My personality is who I am ~ my attitude depends on who you are and how you act.
