WELL LOOKS LIKE FOXWORTHY DID IT AGAIN THINKING ABOUT OUR COUNTRY.

 
 Food for thought
 
 
 
A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by IdiotsJeff Foxworthy:

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.

What a country!
