A conundrum

Sent to me in an email:

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.

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come 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.....

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?

You forgot to mention how this was all engineered by progressives over the last 100 years and how they have taken over the schools, media churches and both political parties. These people will fail even though the conquest was a grand success. The country will be completely devastated as a result and be full of victims.

Gorges, Of course, you are correct. In order to get the cooperation of the "low information voter", some politicians through media perpetuate what can only be described as delusional thinking. Because US public education is extremely weak on critical thinking and on actual history, many of the masses aren't asking the right questions. Many are tied to an electronic device which thinks for them and sucks their available time, without really producing anything. Sometimes, it's like living in a science fiction film ! Thanks for the great post.

I guess I reckoned most of my readers (like you) would know that alreadt, SF! lol

I know what you mean, Jane, or like being in a bad dream from which you can't seem to awaken.
