You can get arrested for expired tags on your car but not for being in the country
illegally.

====================================
 
You know 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 of our money.
 
====================================
 
You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
A seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for calling his teacher "cute" but
hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable.
 
====================================

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
The Supreme Court of the United States can rule that lower courts cannot display
the 10 Commandments in  their courtroom, while sitting in front of a display of the 10 Commandments.
 
====================================

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
Children are forcibly removed from parents who appropriately discipline them while children of "underprivileged" drug addicts are left to rot in filth infested cesspools
of a “home”.

====================================

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
Hard work and success are rewarded with higher taxes and government intrusion,
while slothful, lazy behavior is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid,
subsidized housing, and free cell phones.
 
====================================
 
You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
The government's plan for getting people back to work is to provide 99 weeks of unemployment checks (to not work).

====================================

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
Being self-sufficient is considered a threat to the government.

====================================

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
Politicians think that stripping away the amendments to the constitution is really protecting the rights of the people.
====================================

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
The rights of the Government come before the rights of the individual.

====================================

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
You can write a post like this just by reading the news headlines.

====================================
You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
You pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while
your neighbor defaults on his mortgage (while buying iPhones, TV's and new cars)
and the government forgives his debt and reduces his mortgage (with your tax
dollars).
 
====================================

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
Being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you "safe".

====================================

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
You have to have your parents signature to go on a school field trip but not to get
an abortion.

====================================

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
An 80 year old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA, but a Muslim woman in a burka is only subject to having her neck and head searched.
 
====================================

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
Using the "N" word is considered "hate speech" but writing and singing songs about
raping women and killing cops is considered "art".

====================================

Unfortunately, this list could go on and on. Our country is run by idiots. We are in
distress. Where do we go from here?

OK, this is getting simply bizarre.
 
On Monday, June 25th 2012, the following occurred: The Supreme Court unanimously - yes, UNANIMOUSLY - upheld the portion of Arizona 's Immigration Law that
directs law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of  EVERYONE
who is ARRESTED for a crime. It not just "ALLOWS" them to check, but
"DIRECTS" them to check. That means it's mandatory.

Less than three hours later, the President of the United States issued an executive
order BLOCKING THE ENTIRE STATE OF ARIZONA'S ACCESS to the the
Federal Database that would allow such checks. The only State or Local entity
EVER to be blocked.

One hour after that (which means they had it all ready in advance), the Department
of Justice went live with a toll-free number, a web site, and ads, ASKING FOR
PEOPLE TO REPORT BEING "RACIALLY PROFILED" because of this ruling, so
they - THE U.S. JUSTICE DEPARTMENT - can file "Civil Rights" lawsuits against
the Police Departments, Sheriffs, Cities, Counties and State of Arizona .

In other words, the American Citizens of the State of Arizona are going to be sued
for vast sums of money, BY THEIR OWN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, for
enforcing a law that The Supreme Court UNANIMOUSLY held as constitutional.

Is it just me, or is this getting ridiculous?

The only thing your post made me realize is just how glad I am that you're not in a position of political power. Sure, many of your concepts of sound policy look fine on paper, but they haven't got a snowball's chance in hell of working in real life.

Then there's stuff like this:

Settle in, folks.  We got four years of copy and paste from conservative repub lunatics and sore losers we have to make it through.   Just ignore them, though.  They're thankfully becoming irrelevant as this last election proved.

When your post begins with a premise that's so disconnected from reality that the National Geographic Channel has a hour-long show that disproves it, you probably need to visit Snopes.

...but let me have this one moment of weakness.

How to know if you're a republican!

You might be a Republican if, you use faith to believe in Jesus but try to disprove Global Warming with science.

You might be a Republican if, you want to end abortion and then end all the social programs those children would live off of while screaming protect the little babies.

You might be a Republican if, you follow the teachings of Jesus who said, Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me. – Luke 18:22” but think Barack Obama is a socialist and Jesus was a real smart guy.

You might be a Republican if, you want to protect our children's future by lowering the debt but want to end their health care and reduce the funding to their schools, ending school sports and ending lunch programs for needy children.

You might be a Republican if, you are “pro-life” but support the death penalty and are the first to clamor for war with other nations.

You might be a Republican if, you believe that God said let there be light and there was but The Big Bang is just a theory because how can something come from nothing?

You might be a Republican if, you believe in angels, demons, devils and the invisible man in the sky but use science to try to disprove evolution.

You might be a Republican if, you scream for freedom, a free market and smaller government but want to use government to stop abortions, tell gays they can't marry, prevent gays from entering the military, enforce Christianity and stop Muslims from building mosques.

You might be a Republican if, you believe Ronald Reagan was fiscally conservative but think Obama's spending is out of control.

You might be a Republican if, you’re in favor of stronger prison sentences for drug users, yet your favorite radio personality is Rush Limbaugh who’s addicted to opiates.

You might be a Republican if, you support prayer in school, as long as your kids aren’t subjected to Muslim prayers.

You might be a Republican if, you think Fox News is the ONLY news station in the world to be right and is actually fair and balanced.

You might be a Republican if, you think Obama got elected because every black person voted for him not knowing that America is only 10% black and 66% white.

You might be a Republican if, you rely on email chains, word-of-mouth and random internet websites that support your conspiracy theories but every other source out there you don't agree with is just liberal and protecting Obama.

You might be a Republican if, you've always referred to CNN as liberal and as The Communist News Network but now that they've shown a Tea Part debate think that they ...might actually be getting it....

You might be a Republican if, you blame Obama for the bailouts that Bush started and were upset that Obama's bailout made money and Bush's bailout sponsored parties for AIG, JP Morgan and other workers to the Bahamas.

You might be a Republican if, you believe in Jesus, who was poor and healed the sick for free, but think we should protect the rich and that free health care is wrong.

You might be a Republican if, you are against “Obamacare” because the government forces you to pay for health care insurance but you are ok with preventing women the freedom to choose to have an abortion or use birth control using the government as the enforcer.

You might be a Republican if, you are pro-life and pro-military assault weapons.

You might be a Republican if, your bumper sticker says “Stand up for America, be an American” but hate blacks and ethnics openly and anyone not Christian.

You might be a Republican if, you think the Federal Government can’t force you to buy insurance and think the founding fathers would agree with you even though George Washington forced all citizens to have a rifle in their house and to grow hemp or be jailed.

LOL, I received this email from a friend and agree with most of it and simply could not resist posting here to see the wacky responses.  Comedy gold.

Drive by/ troll post by yours truly, without an ounce of guilt. 

For the record, I said I was leaving this part of GT, not GT as a whole.  This was too good/true not to post though.

So, what you're saying is that you're a deliberate troll, you're unreliable to the point out outright lying, and you're completely ignorant to the realities of politics and the world in general?

Well, that's a waste of a thread. We knew all these things already.

As someone who's mostly ignorant to the contents of the Bible, please elaborate. I'm curious to see if you even know what global warming is (hint: the name is misleading).

I think he's making a reference to the end of days in which hell literally comes to earth.  

On that day, I'm going to be grabbing the first rising christian I see and catchin' me a free ride to the promised land.

I see two things wrong in this thread.  Eco-Logic being a troll.  And others feeding it.

Trolling
The posting of inflammatory, rude, repetitive or offensive messages designed to annoy or antagonize other posters or disrupt the flow of discussion is not allowed here.  If you are looking for a place to do this you’ve come to the wrong forum and will be quickly shown the door.
In addition, please do not respond to any baiting.  By responding you are giving the troll what they want - a reaction out of you.  This will soon escalate and get quickly out of hand.

Locking thread.  If you want to share jokes, please use the right forum to do so...  That would be facebook, or chain emails.
