“If we concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there’d be a shortage of fishing poles”

By Junius P. Long

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 but 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 but run by idiots.

If the only school curriculum allowed to explain how we got here is evolution, but the government stops a $15 million construction project to keep a rare spider from evolving to extinction … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but 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 might live in a country founded by geniuses but 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 new leaders in Egypt … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but 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 but run by idiots.

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

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but 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 but 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 but 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 can’t find work … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

In situations stated here are even worse in Canada, where citizens are now being fined and jailed for even expressing their views about government negligence “and especially the countries excessive immigration program”.

Very strict Internet Censorship laws have now been put in place to strip citizens of free speech in Canada, and Human Rights Tribinal courts have been established in every province. Everyone brought before these courts are found guilty, and the judges at these courts make it perfectly clear that “the truth is no defence”.

Just about every truthful word that comes out of a citizens mouth is classified as “hate speech”. One man BRAD LOVE, who is a Canadian construction worker, was jailed for “eighteen months” WHY ???? For simply demanding that government officials explain him why Canada’s Immigration Department is importing massive numbers of Jamaican gangs, when it is well known they are responsible for over 95% of all gun related crimes in Toronto Canada. He kept demanding an explanation so they put him in prison. Type Brad Love into any search engine to read the story. In Canada almost all politicians are pandering to privilaged minority groups to secure more votes, and complaining about that situation can result in a prison term.

A large number of people met on a farm in southern Ontario to discuss Canada’s new police state situation “and the farm was raided by police”. When the smoke cleared in the courts the owner of the farm simply paid a fine for not having enough toilets for the number of people on his property, but I’m sure he will be harassed by government the rest of his life. Former US president George Washington once said; If free speech is removed, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. North Americans are quickly becoming those sheep he is referring to. I can be fined or jailed for what I’ve said in this comment “I’m not kidding”, that’s the way it is in Canada.
