How It Works
I told my son, “You will marry the girl I choose.”
He said, “NO!”
I told him, “She is Bill Gates’ daughter.”
He said, “OK.”
I called Bill Gates and said, “I want your daughter to marry my son.”
Bill Gates said, “NO.”
I told Bill Gates, My son is the CEO of World Bank.”
Bill Gates said, “OK.”
I called the President of World Bank and asked him to make my son the CEO.
He said, “NO.”
I told him, “My son is Bill Gates’ son-in-law.”
He said, “OK.”
This is how politics works.

CONUNDRUM
"A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again."

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.  
   
Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America :  
   
1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.  
   
2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.  
   
3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.  
   
4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.  
   
5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.  
   
6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.  
   
Think about it!  And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.    Makes you wonder who is doing the math.  
   
These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment   :  
   
1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.  
   
Funny how that works.  And here's another one worth considering...  
   
2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money.  But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of m oney?  What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't.  
   
Think about it.....and Last but not least   :  
   
3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.  
   
Am I the only one missing something?
