Baby Boomers,

It has obviously been one of those months that leaves you scratching your head.

Maybe it's the change of seasons, but, the news headlines the last couple of weeks have been really weird.

Some stories are wonderful, some stories are depressing, some are despicable and some are downright deviant.

Not only do we still have the sophomore rebirth of the boiling pot issues of the Healthcare.gov website malfunctions, but we also have to deal with:

1.  The European Space Agency landed a probe on a comet 300 million miles from Earth.

2. ISIS (The Islamic State of Isreal and Syria)  has beheaded another US citizen trying to provoke an aggressive response from President Obama.

3. Ebola, a deadly disease, has reached epidemic proportions in Africa and has leaked into several other countries of the civilized world including the US.

4. The Arizona Cardinals are the #1 team in the National Football League.


and finally.................wait for it.................................wait for it........................

5. A picture of Kim Kardashian's butt has been used to test the technological limits of the internet.

If that's what our national news has to offer, I figure we should begin this week with a little "scratch your head humor."
You have probably heard the comedy routine by Jeff Foxworthy called "You're Probably a Redneck if.......".

Well, there has been another (more political) series  of pseudo-comical excerpts featuring the tag line: "A Country Founded by Geniuses But Now Run by Idiots"  circulating the internet since early 2013.

It has also an "Attributed to Jeff Foxworthy" tag at its head, leading many to believe it was actually the work of that nationally famous comedian. 

Well, it has been confirmed that this material was not written by Jeff. 

It appears, the original compiler of this list appears to be Fritz Edmunds, who posted it to his "Politically True" blog back on February 3, 2013.

But even Fritz is not taking complete credit for this humor.  

He claims that  "some of the ideas were from an email that did not contain any copyright".
So no matter where these little tidbits of sarcasm came from, I think they are freaking funny enough to pass them on to you today.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

As you read each of these snippets make sure to finish each with the phrase:


 "You live in a country founded by geniuses, but now run by idiots."
  • If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering and remaining in the country illegally................


"You live in a country founded by geniuses, but now run by idiots."
  • If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion..................
  • If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, check out a library book or rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government..................
  • If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than six rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt................
  • If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat.............................
  • If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched...................
  • If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more..................
  • 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................................ If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones...........................
  • If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was diligently sought, but couldn’t be found ...............................
  • If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself any luxuries, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage................................
Sometimes, it's a tough world we live in folks.

My strategy has always been to keep plugging away and always look for the brighter side of life.

Do you have any other funny examples proving that our country might now be run by idiots?
