American Conundrums

Conundrums graphicEvery day CHQ readers email us all manner of material – comments, news tips, rumors, conspiracy theories, jokes you cannot tell your Sunday school teacher – it all arrives and gets reviewed even though a lot of it doesn’t really fit our “news and commentary from the Tea Party or limited government constitutional conservative perspective” USP.

But every so often something comes in over the transom that’s so incisive (and in this case funny in a sad sort of way) that we just have to share it, and such was the case with “American Conundrums” an email forwarded to us by our old friend “Jim,” a decorated Vietnam vet, patriot and valiant cancer survivor still fighting the 30-front war down in Florida.

American Conundrums

A conundrum may be puzzling or confusing --but-- these make REAL sense; here are six conundrums in the United States of America today:

  1. America is supposedly 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.

“Jim” added “Makes you wonder who is doing the math.”

He then added these three, short sentences that tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

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...

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 money?​  ​What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't.

Think about it.....and Last but not least,

Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.

Am I the only one missing something asked “Jim?”

No Jim, you aren’t.
