Toughen up people.  We are becoming a society where ever little comment offends someone.  Everyone is entitled to their opinion even if their opinion is downright insane.  Therefore those people of weak character need to stop letting every little comment that someone says offend them.  If I watch one more news show where someone is offended over something then it’s time to stop watching.  Have some guts, some courage and stop being so easily offended.  America was a nation of hard working, tough minded people and we need to become that great nation once again.  So toughen up. Start today.

“A Country Founded by Geniuses and Run by Idiots

 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 and 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 and 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 for who runs your government … you might live in a country founded by geniuses and run by idiots.

 If your 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 and 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 and run by idiots.

 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 might live in a country founded by geniuses and 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 and 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 country founded by geniuses and 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 and 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 and run by idiots.

 If your 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 and run by idiots.

 If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while your neighbor buys iPhones, TVs and new cars, and your government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage … you might live in a country founded by geniuses and run by idiots.”

Once a month I thought I would place a question on my blog for discussion and debate.  So without further delay here is the question for the month of April, 2013.

Do you think based on either economics, political divisions, domestic policy and or foreign policy that a 2nd Civil War is coming to the United States?  Looking forward to hearing what you think.

America; that once great promised land is currently in decline.  Here are the five most troubling signs that reflect this.

  1. Full scale assaults are currently underway on our rights as guaranteed under the Constitution.  The 2nd amendment is the most noticeable; but others are being ignored or trampled on by those in power as well.
  2. Unemployment.  When you have to use faulty statistics to lie to the public; something is indeed wrong.  an unemployed person whose benefits have run out is dropped from the unemployment numbers; what kind of proper statistical analysis is that?  The real unemployment numbers if all the unemployed were actually counted would approximately be about 30%.
  3. Lack of accountability.  Liberal politicians can lie all they want and make backroom deals without fear of consequences; as they are partnered up with the lame stream media that covers up their misdeeds, unless of course you are a Conservative.
  4. Laws are currently designed to protect criminals and hinder law abiding citizens.  Why else would prosecutors go after law abiding citizens in court; who use a legally purchased firearm to defend themselves against armed thugs.
  5. Racism.  Whenever there is a philosophical difference in legitimate policy issues; leave it to liberals to play the race card.  Racism is at an all time low in this country; but not if you listen to the liberal pundits who want to have Americans continue to hate each other, instead of focusing on the political issues that really matter.

Another reader asked me to re-address the subject of freedom and government so here you go.  There are many important things to know about freedom and government.  Below are some of what I consider to be the most important ones.

  • Your elected representatives could care less about your opinions and interests unless of course you are a major financial donor.
  • Governments will use fear as a weapon and by doing so, create real or imagined threats that they will claim only the government can solve.
  • Never waive or give up your rights under any circumstances.
  • Strangers are just that, strangers, so do not engage in talking to them about anything private or sensative.
  • Never make an assumption that an expert is really an expert.
  • If you have fundamental differences with certain people it is a waste of time to argue issues, politics or philosophies with them.
  • Avoid the victim mentality.  Take responsibility for your decisions.
  • Consider nothing as true until you have verified it.
  • Freedom means never having to beg the government for your fundamental rights.
  • It is okay not to respect a political office if you don’t respect the person in that office.
  • Draw your line in the sand so that you know what you will and what you won’t tolerate.
