  • Conundrum

    A conundrum may be puzzling or confusing--but-- this makes REAL sense!!!

    "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 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 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,

    3. 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 here?

    Representatives don't run the country, the Oligarchs do. We have the best government that money can buy for those who have large sums of money to burn.

      Native Gangs
      by WhoMe
      I had a couple of indepth conversations about Indian youth recently. Today's conversation was about Native gangs.

      Every generation of Indian youth seems to incorporate what is going on in popular culture. In this current generation, this includes gangs and gang culture.

      Libya. Should America be there?
      by WhoMe
      Here we go again. . .

      What is our interest there? There are lots of other countries with social unrest. Why do we always get involved with the Middle East?

      Should we even be there?

      End the War in Iraq?
      by WhoMe
      I just heard there are a group of bi-partisan Congressmen who want to draft legislation to end the Iraqi Conflict in two years.

      They cite increasing lack of American public support, $340 billion tax dollars spent and 1700 Americans dead - as their reasoning for this legislation.
