    Re: Something is Very Wrong Here.

    Then you see something like this. It makes me wonder about discipline and readiness. Going to hell in a hand-basket comes to mind. A direct reflection on the Commander-n-Chief.

    Re: Something is Very Wrong Here.

    Sometimes junk mail makes sense.

    Jeff Foxworthy:

    If plastic water bottles are okay, but plastic bags are banned, you might live in a nation (state) that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots. WE DO LIVE IN SUCH A DUMB COUNTRY!!

    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 who is confined to a wheelchair or a three-year-old girl 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 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.

    THINK BEFORE YOU VOTE IN ALL UPCOMING ELECTIONS. MOST OF THE IDIOTS RUNNING THIS COUNTRY SAY ONE THING AND DO THE OPPOSITE KNOWING THAT THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED THEM IN DO NOT PAY ATTENTION

    LET'S SEE IF I GOT THIS RIGHT!!!

    IF YOU CROSS THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET 12 YEARS HARD LABOR.

    IF YOU CROSS THE IRANIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU ARE DETAINED INDEFINITELY.

    IF YOU CROSS THE AFGHAN BORDER ILLEGALLY, YOU GET SHOT.

    IF YOU CROSS THE SAUDI ARABIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE JAILED.

    IF YOU CROSS THE CHINESE BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU MAY NEVER BE HEARD FROM AGAIN.

    IF YOU CROSS THE VENEZUELAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE BRANDED A SPY AND YOUR FATE WILL BE SEALED.

    IF YOU CROSS THE CUBAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE THROWN INTO POLITICAL PRISON TO ROT.

    IF YOU CROSS THE MEXICAN BOARDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE ARRESTED AND MAY OR MAY NOT GET OUT, AND YOU HAVE TO SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE AND CAN NOT BUY ANY PROPERTY (EVEN IF LEGALLY THERE), AND NO BENEFITS FROM THEIR GOVERNMENT.


    IF YOU CROSS THE U.S. BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET . !!!
    A JOB, A DRIVERS LICENSE,
    SOCIAL SECURITY CARD, WELFARE,
    FOOD STAMPS, CREDIT CARDS,
    SUBSIDIZED RENT OR A LOAN TO BUY A HOUSE,
    FREE EDUCATION, FREE HEALTH CARE,
    A LOBBYIST IN WASHINGTON
    BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS PRINTED IN YOUR LANGUAGE
    THE RIGHT TO CARRY YOUR COUNTRY'S FLAG WHILE YOU
    PROTEST THAT YOU DON'T GET ENOUGH RESPECT
    AND, IN MANY INSTANCES, YOU CAN VOTE.

    I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE I HAD A FIRM GRASP ON THE SITUATION

    Yes, except when the punchline is nearly universal in calling someone a racist for pointing out the obvious. Wonder if there is something akin to Godwins law for that....

    ^^^I'm having trouble figuring something out here.

    With all the trolling coming my way, and let's face it boys, there's no other word for it, I'm wondering about the reason for this old game.

    I've got lots of theories that run a full range of possibilities. But unlike you guys I know one never quite knows what is going on in the mind of another. So tell me. Wtf is with you guys?

    What's wrong with Black Lives Matter you might ask. BLM often mentioned by the messiah as a good thing. Well here's one of the many things wrong with BLM.

    The bill has been in the mail for the left dealing with and sucking the buttox of the radicals (who usually turn out to be lowlife dirtbags looking for a buck) for decades. I wonder.. if Obama had a son would he look like Charles Wade? Did the police "act foolishly" again? No doubt voting a racist into the highest office in the land will have pretty darn predictable results. Rev. Wright could have told ya 9 years ago... but I digress.

    Same story with the anti wall street BS from just a few years back.

    The narrative the left pitches about conservative movements like the Tea Party being "radical" vs. the reality that members of the movements they support are arrested for violent crimes and terrorist plots is striking. Some might say it's a prime example of cognitive dissonance, don't believe it for a second. It's willful ignorance. They will turn a blind eye, spin and lie because they simply don't give a sh*t.

    The whole narrative vs. reality thing that manifests itself in the lefty posters here is amusing to watch. Their convention should be a hoot to watch this year if Nevada is any indication. No doubt they will find a way to blame Trump...

    Any reasonable person recognizes extremes exist on both sides of the spectrum. What's downright amusing is your constant need to speak for people who might see things differently than you.

    Now, is your point that an individual represents a group? Guess Hastert allows me to call the GOP the party of child molesters?
