Email From a Buddy

A gun is like a parachute.
If you need one, and don't have one,
you'll probably never need one again."

The definition of the word Conundrum is:
Something that is puzzling or confusing.

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalist and greedy -
yet half of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the
government.

4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting
poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer -
yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet
they want America to be more like those other countries.

Think about it!
And that, my friends, pretty much sums
up the USA in the 21st Century.
Makes you wonder who is doing the math.

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our
current government and cultural environment:

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics,
but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few
lunatics.

Funny how that works. And here's another one worth considering.

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of
money. But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money!
What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the
second didn't.

Think about it.....and Last but not least :

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our
military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are
not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.

Am I the only one missing something?

  1. Reminds of something I just read: Welfare keeps people out of the work force.

    You just have to remember, the goal on the part of the PTB is to remain the PTB. Nothing else matters.

  2. Yeah, ALL they care about is staying in power.

    Everything else they say is just to keep The Little People snowed...
