5. 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 live in a country run by idiots.

6. 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 live in a country run by idiots.

7. If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more, you live in a country run by idiots.

9. 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 live in a country run by idiots.

10. 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 live in a country run by idiots.

11. If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government, you live in a country run by idiots.

Americans elected and re-elected Choomboy.   So who are really the idiots running (or ruinning?) this country.

Were these 11 points rhetorical...  Everyone already knows this country is run by complete blithering idiots....  its a cocophony of advocacy for mediocrity.

I think the author could have picked so many better comparisons to prove his point. Like on number 6 it seems he actually thinks muslims are treated favorably compared to others, what kind of neo-con FOX news tard thinks this is the case. And what kind of identification is he suggesting would suit a voter (who is rather irrelevant as he has no actual power), an iris scan, DNA sample or a chip in the arm installed at birth?

So what you are saying then, if we get the crux of your biscuit, is that it is not possible for 106% of registered voters to vote in a given district?

It was a wind up anti-diversion squirrel, a small Ukrainian squirrel to head off the rabid 911 squirrel that was about to grab an ebola infected acorn and haul it back to the nest.

It was, a humanitarian act on my part ;-)

All kidding aside, the world is run by very smart 'people' - evil - but smart. They recruit not losers, but rather, bright talented people.


It is the masses who are the idiots (brainwashed) to not see the illusion that 'they' have created for us.

No. 12

If by the ISIS threat in the Middle East you ever thought it was not going to be a transparent cover so that Obama could attack Syria then you are an idiot for not realizing that your country is run by very scheming non-idiots who know you are an idiot for never seeing why ISIS only appeared when early false-flag chemical attacks failed to gain traction for an attack on Syria a year earlier...


That was probably a combo-buster...

Uncle Ronnie put it best.  Government isn't the solution.  Government is the problem.

This country is not run by idiots, they are brilliantly evil. Huge difference in personal responsibility.

Compared to the rest of the world, America still rocks.  We're down but not out.  As soon as we start making other countries pay for their own defense, we'll be right as rain.  U-S-A.

I was chatting with my very nice but somewhat ....eh.... eh...er..... .gov employed neighbor. Yeah. That's being polite. Anyhow, I commented the country is full of idiots, run by idiots, idiots in school teaching idiot kids. Just my usual rant. She asked me " where is your proof of that?" I was dumbfounded. I responded, " the country elected Obama , twice " what more proof do you need? At which point she looked at me like I had a third eye. Obviously, I struck a nerve, and know who she voted for.
Oh, the Humanity!

Would you rather have President McCain? President Romney?

Raymond K Hessel's picture

McCain would have been a better choice than Romney and in spite of the criticisms he managed to stay alive for the full 8 years.

If McCrazy was a president, USA will be involved in a war inside Iran right now and/or possibly a nuclrear stand off with Russia right now. Is that what you want?

You need a license to have a dog, drive a moped, catch a fish, shoot a squirell, but not to raise a child?


BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

You'll have to make a note to yourself that you cannot comment on people's children and their unalienable right to have as many of them as they damn well want. They get veeeerrrrryyyyyyy sensitive about it. You see, genesis said go forth and multiply but unfortunately forget to mention when to put on the brakes.

I believe the EBT card has a limit at one dozen kids - if she wants more she needs to find a new baby-maker...

ejmoosa's picture

You should not need a license for ANY of those things.

Bunghole's picture

That was what I was trying to say.  It didn't come out right.

Sorry if I offended those playing the system for free shit, based on the spawn you spew.

GeorgeWKush's picture

If you read the koran and the bible and compare you will find that the bible (foremostly the old testament) is more hostile towards other religions. Unfortunately both text can be rather self contradictory so when you treat muslims like trash for a couple of centuries some of them traces down the couple of verses instructing you to be hostile towards infidels and then they become just that.

The problem is that the author of this text seems more committed to making a treat out of muslims and other people which in general are rather harmless instead of focusing on the real trash bags such as those running FED. For example, why doesn't he cherry pick some ridiculously harsh sentences handed out to petty criminals and compare them to banker scum that have stolen billions or trillions and still goes free? Probably because the author is an idiot himself who fails to realize why things have gone wrong in the first place.

You're an idiot, too.  A moron, and an idiot. A raving one, apparently.

Who are you trying to kid?


Only one religion has the moral imperative to dominate the world.  Old Testament war verses are contextually and historically constrained.  164 Qur'an verses of jihad including neck smiting and terror casting on infidels, apostates and hypocrites, were written by the 8th and 9th century authors of Islam.  No school of Islamic jurisprudence considers the Qur'an to be constrained in any way.  The Qur'an is a perfect book from their perfect 7th century warlord.

You call stoning children to death for disobeying their parents, restrained. Oh no, no, no. Can you people ever, for just once in your life, be objective and come out and say "well yeh, the bible does contain a lot of evil". You can't though because your whole edifice of delusion comes tumbling down the moment you concede the bible is flawed.

Oh, and while we're on the subject of stupidity and bibles, if the animals lined up by twos on Noah's ark, did he have one gigantic green house for the tens of thousands of species of plants. Oh no, our resident bible bashers never thought of that and never do think beyond the black ink that forms the words and verses therein.

Have you ever had to deal with some of the feral utes running the inner cities lately?

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

I believe to what he is referring is that Jesus in the New Testament fulfilled and closed the Old Testament, leaving it as a historical account but not a guide.The law was kept perfectly by Christ. And all its penalties against God’s sinful people were poured out on Christ. Therefore, the law is now manifestly not the path to righteousness, Christ is. The ultimate goal of the law is that one would look to Christ, not law-keeping, for righteousness.

This is the basic tenet of Christianity. There is no similar divergence in the Quran which has remained the same since the 7th century.

That's some bad karma.
