I'm sitting in the Dr's office right now and the TV show "The Talk" is on, first time I've watched TV in several weeks. It occurred to me while watching the garbage on the TV that the reason our nation is run by idiots is because we are collectively a nation of idiots. Its the law of attraction on a national political level, idiots can relate to idiots and they relate to the idiots that run for office and therefore elect idiots
Something I have always felt and has been trumpeted by many others is that Obama doesn't scare me as much as the people that put him in office and repeated the insanity a second time.......................your post explains it very well.

Good luck with your illness, I read your post. I knew divers in the Navy and you guys are a tough bunch.

All the best Nuc.

Well, all I can say is, my mistake. Delete the thread or place it in the Hoax file. My apologies to everyone, it was not an intentional attempt to mislead.

Well the content is misleading also. See here. Only two of the points can actually be confirmed to be true.

If it deserves to be in Hoax, please place it there. Can you also take back the stars and flags? I would not want to take credit where it is not due.

Awesome man we need to come up with more of these and give them on a talk show,.You have come up with something clever here.They all are really happening no matter how you dress it up to the person who said that some of them where false.

If you live in a country where your leaders join the side of a civil war where a man cuts another mans heart out and eats it you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

People... the opening post is nearly complete rubbish!

Why are you taking this at face value?

See this post, only two of the points can be confirmed to be actually true. It's just insane partisan attention-getting propaganda!

Isn't SNOPES just 2 married people living in their basement ..

doing some research but not all factual?

The premise is wrong even if the argumentations is valid. Not a country founded by geniuses and those that are running it are not idiots, thinking the contrary is what has lead to, and the perpetuation of the present situation...

How can you?

Only two points are valid. Isn't that obvious to people on first reading?

What's going on here ATS members? Is this a prank of some type?

yeah, but...

I've never seen such complete hook-line-and-sinker acceptance of such hooey. I was waiting for someone, anyone to break it apart... when it didn't happen, I felt compelled.

It seems to me that Foxworthy's rant is an excuse...

The Title of his rant would ring true if it were..

A Nation Founded on Liberty, Was Lost on Apathy....

We fight tiny battles with words, on tiny issues made BIG by those we have allowed to steal the liberty we thought we enjoyed, and took for granted...

Take a bow US citizens (myself included, We are to blame for letting this happen

Sorry. I posted before I read your breakdown. I assume you know what youre talking about. I think the original points would have been more credible if they had left out "founded by geniuses".
