A very good and long-time friend is retired and politically active.  He reads a lot, including a variety of views, many of which I am either  unaware of or don’t take the trouble to read.  Yesterday, he sent me a short description of America today.  I thought it worth passing on through this blog.  I apologize if this just deepens your depression over the state of our government.   I assume most of you are already in a bad mood since you are busy sending tax money to Washington to misspend on your behalf.

Conundrum

As you know, the definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

Now that you have been reminded, check out the following email message I received today. If this isn’t confusing, I don’t know what is!!!

The six contradictions 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.

And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.
