We Have A Country Founded By Geniuses, But Run By Idiots

My grandfather had a name for the people in Washington, he called them educated jerks, boy was he ever right. I think my grandfather is looking down from Heaven saying to us all, “See, what did I tell you.” I can’t help wondering if these politicians took a class in stupidity when they were in school.

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 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 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 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.

There is a lesson here; grandfathers are smart and we should listen to what they say.

    Why wont you answer my question?? Who actually wrote this??

  2. Jerry T says:

    Chris, Jan
    Every fuctioning entity on this earth be it bioligical, a machine, man made or a system of order. All have core principles that cannot be taken away or weakened or “IT” will cease to be. Every country on this earth has an economy that is the life bread of that country. It is a nations strength in every sense of the meaning and allows growth and protection for that nation and the citizens.

    This administration is attacking our core principles, our constitution. You cannot use The Executive order to institute into law major legislation as dictators do.
    You circumvent the balance our founders built into our republic. You cannot regulate our strength to burdon capitalism through business restrictions, that will choke them, prevent growth and destroy jobs. Lost jobs destroy the family and the community. This is being done through the guise of politics but this is much deeper. No one could be this stupid, Like Smokey the Bear says, only WE can prevent forest fires.

  3. Jerry T says:

    Jan you are completely correct in that this is not a fight of one person. My meaning was with Chris and his thoughts that he shares in HIS column. A shout becomes a roar with many, a soldier is an army with many. A leader compells those who believe in what he or she champions to rise within themselves and fight for what they believe in.

    What is happening in America today is a pathetic display of arrogance in Washington toward the American people and our founding fathers. Can WE fix it? Yes, but it will take US and to do that you must reach US. The media has turned its back on US so WE need to recreate a different media in order to reach out to one another. You see, together we are one, e pluribus unum, We The People. WE are powerful and they know that. So THEY want US to be fragmented and disconnected, socially segmented, rich, poor and implied racist. Concerened about the little we have and fragile in our approach, because if we do one wrong thing we may lose it all. Keep US skittish and on edge, knowing if WE react it will be as a mob. They can control the mob as they see fit.

    That’s the menu they have for America. But Jan this Chef has a different menu. We can fix America and turn this country around in less than a year, but it will take the people to do it. Every ingredient is right here to make that change but WE have to allow US that change. WE have to THRIVE our way out of this mess through economics and tell everyone in Washington to go straight to hell.

    3% dictate what the other 97% have and need as long as that 97% wander waiting to be dictaited to by the government or some organization without clout in our economic doldrums. 3% lead us into socialism and 97% want capitalism. The latter is the pill to turn America around, not the mob, not the weapon, not the revolt. Prosperity is the cure and the weapon is our dollar. It will also take some Patriots out there in the business world who can listen. Do you know any?

    No Jan Chris is not alone in this at all. Jerry

    • Jan Brown says:

      Actually, Jerry, I found your remark a poignent reminder that many are still sitting on the sideline & ‘watching’, while others ‘work’ at at least maintaining some sanity & restoration of OUR Country. I didn’t mean to infer that you were part of that. I am amazed & rather tired of the displayed hand wringers that take the attitude that “nothing can be done” or “I don’t know what to do”. When anyone can write a letter, vote or make a phone call eith out any special talent. Few are born activist, but we all enjoy our freedoms found only in this country, Most of these whinners are part of the failed Stewardship (As was I)that got us here.

  4. Jan Brown says:

    Chris, I read this the day you posted but felt ‘you said it all’ so didn’t comment. Site activity has been slower the past day or so & I was ‘reviewing’ The last line in Jerry’s comment this a.m “Chris, My friend, YOU have YOUR hands full. They walk among US” compells me to add:

    If they walk among US..why would (only)”your” hands be full…do not we all (US)have the responsibility to share in this fight? In a battle for survival it takes an army of soldiers, not just one. We must all become warriors & together share the trials war brings….Make no mistake, this is WAR & that big boot heel of Big Brother is trying to grind us into the dust from which we rose through blood, sweat & tears to reach prviously undreamable heights. Now that we have tasted victory, I pray we will never be served defeat because we left the fight to others.

    I beg each of our readers to ‘engage’ & use your own resources & capabilities , join your neighbors & let those like Chris be your leader. One can only be a leader if others follow….Chris gives us a great direction…

  5. Jerry T says:

    Chris there was an opinion piece this morning in the Times Minion. A man fron St Augustine wanted to change the 22nd Amendment so that Obama could have a third and fourth term. He has really turned the country around as he stated. Chris my friend you have got your hands full, as the saying goes “They walk amoung us.” JT

  6. Jerry T says:

    Good one Chris. Our grandfathers respected their heritage. They did their best to instill that in their offspring. Thank God with many of us it stuck.
    I look forward to your thoughts so keep up the fight.

    Jerry T

    There is no common sense left in this country, everything has to politically correct. Stupidity is a good word for it.
