Now that the State of California has no effective opposition to its confiscatory tax policy, it's unlikely the Lowenthal grocery bag harassment tax can be confined to radical controlled Long Beach. Now that the State's pandering politicians have successfully created a voting majority of dangerous tax eaters and taxpayer supported Thug people, things will get ugly very fast.

You are right! Join us in the Teaparty and we will stop all this giveaway stuff and keep the sick old mean fatties from getting retiremnt that they wont work for and if they did they still dont act right. Michelle says deporting all who disgaree, are disagreeable, dont act right, smell right, talk right or look right and are here for the wrong reasons will become the biggest market boom that we have ever had and it will last for a thousand years of peace and prospeity. New cars all around!

1. If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

2. If you have to get your parents permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

3. If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book, but not to vote,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

4. If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt, you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

5. 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.

6. If an 80-year-old woman and 3 yr old child can be stripped searched by the TSA, but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

7. If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

8. 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,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

9. If children are forcibly removed from parents who discipline them with spankings while children of addicts are left in filth and drug infested homes…, you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

10. If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

11. If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while your neighbor buys iPhones, TVs and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

12. If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more safe according to the government,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

I dont understand but that doesnt stop me from thinking of that famous singer who said "if they want my bags they will have to pry them from my cold dark trunk". We wont tolerate this inetrference. We should be building the great wall around us to keep out the stupid mean ideas and the religionists who are disagreeable and speak in other tongues. I like that observation that you, or somebody else, made about returning to the orderly piece we had in 1951. I dont know about the Febrary date but '51 is the ONE. Let's go now....Hallejulah!!
