Letter to the Editor: Country run by idiots

Dear Editor:
America has been designed by geniuses; run by idiots in both parties.
You know you live in a country run by idiots if:
You can get arrested for expired tags on your car but not for being in this country illegally;
You have to have your parents’ signature to go on a school field trip but not to get an abortion;
An 80-year-old woman can be strip-searched by the TSA but a Muslim woman in a burka is only subject to having her neck and head searched;
Your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more;
The Supreme Court of the United States can rule that lower courts cannot display the 10 Commandments in their courtroom while the justices sit in front of a display of the 10 Commandments;
Children are forcibly removed from the parents who appropriately discipline them while children of “underprivileged” drug addicts are left to rot in filth-infested cesspools of a “home;”
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 a free cell phone with 150 hours per month;
Being self-sufficient is considered a threat to the government;
The rights of the government come before the “rights of the individual;”
You pay mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while your neighbor defaults on his mortgage (while buying iPhones, TVs and new cars) and the government forgives his debt and reduces his mortgage (with your tax dollars);
Being stripped of the ability to defend yourself and yours makes you “safe;” and
You can write a post like this just by reading news headlines!
God bless the old America as designed by the great old geniuses.
