If, in our 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.

  1. WOW. Powerful. I was going to post today, but this says it all. Thanks Tom.

    If we cannot see what is going on here by what we see happening around this nation, then read this post. As we are now, living in country founded by geniuses but it is definitely run by idiots. The sad part is, the people put them there. It is time to take our republic back from the peanut gallery.

    Robert – Don’t worry about it, post away! Wait a second, you did!!
    The hypocrisy is staggering if not confusing. No wonder our heads are spinning!

    Righteous post! Everyday since Election Day 2008 has been April Fools Day in the United States. It has been a nightmare that never ends and will never end until those now in power are gone and the nation experiences a new birth of freedom just as Abraham Lincoln envisioned. In the words of the great Howard Cosell ” The perspicacity of your prognostications defies incredulity”
    reply from Robert: Ahhh Howard Cosell. I had forgotten he said that. Thanks for putting that in the comment.

    If the United States survives as a nation as it was envisioned by the founding fathers, historians of the future will ponder the question as to why this period in our nations history occurred at all. The answer to that question will be that the powers that be not only allowed it to happen but were instrumental in instigating it in the first place. The Holocaust occurred in Germany not only because the powers that be allowed it to happen by setting the groundwork for and instigated it as well. The powers that be here are setting the groundwork for a societal change of major proportions that will destroy all that the United States was, is and what was envisioned to be by its founding fathers I find it inconceivable that the likes of Jere
    miah Wright, Bill Ayers, Rashid Khalidi, Frank Marshall Davis would be among the mentors to a future president of the United States who had enough followers to be elected not once but twice to the highest office in the land.
    reply from Robert: The reason why is well documented in the comment above yours by an ingrate who called himself Questionman. There is where the problem America has lies. In people like him.
