    1. Non-firearm political discussion is prohibited.
    There are many different people here with many different opinions, ideologies, and viewpoints. Like religion, discussing these issues here is likely to offend others or cause division within the community. We need to focus on the topic that brings us together, not issues that are all but certain to divide us. This rule applies to the site in its entirety.

    =====================================

    Tyranny cannot be far behind.....a storm is brewing.

    ----- 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.


    And here's another one worth considering...


    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.....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?


    These are difficult times where the world has gone crazy.

    3.

All the while our political leaders and the richest of our society keep getting richer.
