No idea where this belongs so I figure that as it's all about people and politicians (yes I separate them) it can go here. One thing to remember is that although the source of quoted satire is slanted towards the US, I'm starting to think of N. America as a whole. The lines are getting more and more blurred every day and it's getting out of hand North or South.


If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally, you live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to get your parent’s permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you live in a country 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 live in a country 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 leaders in Egypt , you live in a country 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 live in a country 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 live in a country run by idiots.

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.

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 live in a country 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 live in a country 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 cannot find work, you live in a country run by idiots.

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.

Some may think it's not as funny as I do but that's ok. But to be quite honest, if it wasn't 100% accurate it would be even funnier. So are we run by idiots or are we the idiots?

I posted a pic of "Hilary for Prison" yesterday and thought that was funny as hell. Some people...not so much. It was almost as if some are still under the impression that they get to "Elect" the next King or Queen of America instead of "Select". (Some of you will get this)

So what do we have now? It seems to be a rinse and repeat of the "Obama will save the World" campaign flavor doesn't it? Get someone out there that speaks their mind, tells it like it is, shakes his fist at all the evil-doers (I still laugh at this term) and what do we have?


Look familiar?

There is a huge difference here tho. Obama was adored by so many because he was the hope of change. Trump is stirring the anger because he is rallying against everything that the people need to hear. But let's not forget one very important thing here. He's popular because the MSM game is to hate him. And who hates the MSM? The people!

Fun huh?

Problem, Reaction, Solution...

So my final point is "We Live In A Country Run By Idiots If...We allow it."

Add your own..."We Live In A Country Run By Idiots If..."

Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States.

His DemComSoc* opponent, Bernie Sanders, will raise a stink after he forgets to put on an adult diaper and poops in his pants.

*Dem.. Democrat, Com.. Commie, Soc.. Socialist..

I'm starting to think of N. America as a whole. The lines are getting more and more blurred every day and it's getting out of hand North or South.


Hell no!!!!

I'm typing the following with a playful attitude. Deep down I love you guys! I have seen 40 out 50 States and stayed a few months in some due to business (great place to make $$$).

However, if it makes you feel better about the state of your union to lump us into your stink, than so be it. But I strongly disagree with your assertion: "I'm starting to think of N. America as a whole;" and I'm only replying because we Canucks refuse to be ignorantly lumped into your mess just to appease some people's feelings about their beloved nation. Sorry, my friend.



If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally, you live in a country run by idiots.



Nope! If you are caught being here illegally; you are arraigned; your case goes to Immigration Court; and swiftly deported.

In my country of residence, if you are caught hunting or fishing without a licence, you can be charged and most definitely fined heavily.



If you have to get your parent’s permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you live in a country run by idiots.


Yeah, here there are no laws that regulate abortion and it is funded (paid for) by the government like all healthcare is. Also, no parental permission is needed if the minor is of age of consent. No parent can override the decision of the child either if they are of age of consent.



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 live in a country run by idiots.



We have to show identification to VOTE, and all of the above.



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 leaders in Egypt , you live in a country run by idiots.


Nope! N/A over here. That second amendment rights stuff is unique to America. That's all you!



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.



You guys have 16 oz pops?!!!! Dafuque?! Btw, our large sodas here is considered your guys mediums...



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 live in a country run by idiots.



Yeah...CTSA here possess more common sense. Our members of the Canadian Air Transport Security, act very professionally and are often fair minded to the point that discrepancies and idiotic practices such as "strip searching an 80 year lady" does not take place or make the news here.



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.



Our middle class is doing quite alright. All world economies are struggling right now, yet, we are still doing well overall and our infrastructure is not failing. We don't have Detroit issues - anywhere! I state that as our dollar took a double hit just today due the devaluation of the Chinese currency (I felt that one for personal reasons today as my finance guy called). Also, our neocon PM (love him or hate him) was a former chief economist - not a former lawyer as most Presidents have been...



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 live in a country run by idiots.



Yeah...idiotic things such as a seven year old boy being expelled from school does not take place here.



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.


Again, that's all you guys!



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 cannot find work, you live in a country run by idiots.


Again, that's all you guys!



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.


Total number of murders in Canada for the year 2013 = 505

Total number of murders in the U.S for the year 2014 = 14196

...and most Canadians do not own guns (about only 20% do). But then again, our society does not produce a culture where one finds the need to desperately "defend" ourselves or put forth that argument.

My friend, most Americans are intelligent, sophisticated, cultured, and kindhearted people, but don't you ever try to lump us into your box with those silly examples listed above!

S+F

You live in a country run by idiots if a large portion of the budget goes toward stealing someone's oil.

You live in a country run by idiots if elevators are run by nuclear power.

You live in a country run by idiots if you have high voltage wires buried under your feet and self contained solar buildings are taboo.

You live in a country run by idiots if you can travel a hundred miles and not see a fruit tree.

You live in a country run by idiots if you use chemicals to kill the animals that eat the bugs and then complain about the bugs.

you Live In A Country populated By Idiots If.... you blame the poor for the nations economic ills and hate welfare for individuals because the media has trained them to think that way

you Live In A Country populated By Idiots If.... the people cant be bothered finding out why it is the banks can create money out of thin air but governments cant so the people have to pay tax that is actually used to pay interest on money the govt borrows from banks, you live in a country populated by idiots.

you Live In A Country populated By Idiots If...you hate individuals on welfare but don't even know about corporate welfare and how much money it consumes every year because the man on the TV has not told the people about corporate welfare and therefor they done know about it.

I think we live in a country run by intelligent, cold-hearted opportunists. All the money that corrupts politics in the US is first surrendered by the people and this to the extent that the people need to purchase their livelihood from these powerful entities. I'm all for government reform, but I think that it is silly to ask for more regulation from a government that will always be a target for the rich and powerful because so few can control so many. The path of power begins in our minds, proceeds to our hands and then on through the rich and powerful we elect with our wallets. I think the more lasting solution is finding ways to produce our own needs locally and thereby lessen our dependence on centralized representation/supply. I believe there are fundamental ways in which energy and material can be efficiently officiated and it is not in a handful mandating/supplying the majority from thousands of miles away, and I believe that every progressive step we take in the future will inevitably head towards an equilibrium of local, manageable oversight for the benefit of both the people and the planet.
