A Muslim officer crying "Allah Akbar" while shooting up an army base is considered to have committed "Workplace Violence"while an American citizen boasting a Ron Paul bumper sticker is classified as a "Domestic Terrorist".

You can get arrested for expired tags on your car but not for being in the country illegally.

Your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more of our money.

A seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for calling his teacher "cute" but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable.

The Supreme Court of the United States can rule that lower courts cannot display the 10 Commandments in their courtroom, while sitting in front of a display of the 10 Commandments.

Children are forcibly removed from parents who appropriately discipline them while children of "underprivileged" drug addicts are left to rot in filth infested cesspools.

Working class Americans pay for their own health care (and the health care of everyone else) while unmarried women are free to have child after child on the "State's" dime while never being held responsible for their own choices.

Hard work and success are rewarded with higher taxes and government intrusion, while slothful, lazy behavior is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid and subsidized housing.

The government's plan for getting people back to work is to provide 99 weeks of unemployment checks (to not work).

Being self-sufficient is considered a threat to the government.

Politicians think that stripping away the amendments to the constitution is really protecting the rights of the people.

The rights of the Government come before the rights of the individual.

Parents believe the State is responsible for providing for their children.

You can write a post like this just by reading the news headlines.

You pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while your neighbor defaults on his mortgage (while buying iphones, TV's and new cars) and the government forgives his debt and reduces his mortgage (with your tax dollars).

Your government can add anything they want to your kid's water (fluoride, chlorine, etc.) but you are not allowed to give them raw milk.

Being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you "safe".

You have to have your parents signature to go on a school field trip but not to get an abortion.

An 80 year old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a Muslim woman in a burqa is only subject to having her neck and head searched.

Using the "N" word is considered "hate speech" (unless it is in a rap song) but writing and singing songs about raping women and killing cops is considered "art".

Ain't this the God given truth. In NJ, if you name your children Adolf Hitler or Himmler, regardless if you've never physically or emotionally abused your children, they will be indefinitely pulled from your home but if you're an illegal alien with multiple children you can ill afford to raise, you can have your children pulled from you several times for neglect(all the while you keep having children) and even though your children are in a better home than you could possibly give them, the effort to reunite them with you will be of such vigor that it will blow your mind.

Also, your town is full of illegal Mexicans driving around town with bogus registrations while you're getting citations for parking in the street on streetsweeper day(even though it was raining and the streetsweeper wasn't running), or because the lid on your trashcan flipped open(doesn't matter if the wind did it or an angry neighbor), or if you dare put something out for the trash that didn't have a "yellow sticker" on it.

Most of those are spot-on. A few others... not so much. The raw milk one, for example. I mean, really? Does the author of that piece even consider the dangers of unpasteurized milk? E. coli, salmonella, listeria... People who consume raw milk are more likely to be hospitalized because of it. Why not just go shove your face in a warm cow pie?

Sorry Charlie but you're off base here. Now if you wan to wait a week or two to drink that milk, that's little different. But if you squirt the first 15 oz or so into a tin cup and have it for breakfast while you're stripping the bag of the rest of the 5 gallons, that's a totally different tale. 3 generations / 5 individuals lived off that raw milk for the 21 years I spent at home and a lesser number for many years before and a few after. G'dad kicked the bucket at 84, G'ma was pushing 90 and neither was treated for anything other than old age. Mom and Pop went into their 70's and I just turned 70. None ever had any of the problems you quote.

BTW a cow pattie poultice does a world of good to a wasp sting.

I have drank raw goats milk for several years before that raw cows milk and these guys need to ask their mothers if they boiled their breasts before feeding them.

Agreed. I think the world got along just fine before Louis Pasteur boiled the milk.

In fairness to Mr. Hubie I should clarify, with the massive volumes of milk being processed each day Pasteurization is not a bad idea, that said milk produced in smaller quantities with care taken to prevent contamination has benefits that pasteurized milk does not have.
I can't drink processed milk without indigestion and bad gas because raw milk has beneficial bacteria's and enzymes that aid in digestion especially for older people, processing the milk kills these natural compounds.

You Know You Live In An Upside-Down Land If…

Nearly 500,000 federal employees now make at least $100,000 a year.

You have a President that attacks the heavy spending and big deficits of his predecessor, but encouraged budgets that had triple the deficits ever seen in American history.

Fairness in paying taxes means the amount you pay is based on the amount you make, then the only group in America paying at least a "fair share" is the top 20%. Theirs has gone up over the last 30 years, while the share of taxes paid by everyone else has gone down.

The sitting Democrat President's best strategy is only appealing to liberals, yet the majority of the nation is conservative/moderate.

Children raised by a single mothers commit 72 percent of juvenile murders, 60 percent of rapes, have 70 percent of teenaged births, commit 70 percent of suicides and are 70 percent of high school dropouts.

57 percent of all immigrant households get cash, Medicaid, housing or food benefits from the government — compared with 39 percent of native households. The highest rates are for immigrants from the Dominican Republic (82 percent), Mexico and Guatemala (tied at 75 percent).

There are 115,000 janitors with college degrees, along with 83,000 bartenders, 80,000 heavy-duty truck drivers, and 323,000 waiters and waitresses.

You want to check out books from your local library, you must show an ID and a local address to prove you are a resident of the county, BUT you don't have to show an ID, proving you are a citizen of the USA, to vote for the president of the USA.

The federal government proudly announces it is distributing the greatest number of food stamps ever!

The President says, "you know there are plenty of patriotic, successful Americans all across the country"; but he's just not one of them!

Your President at the seventh annual Group of 20 summit, and while surrounded by twenty other world leaders, was chewing gum the entire time. No manners and no respect!

When those on the left consider it a negative for Romney because he never was a "Community Organizer", never took drugs or smoked pot, did not associate with communists or terrorists, nor did he attend a church whose pastor called for God to damn the US.

Your President has not had one original idea come from his mouth - it's all the same kind of old warmed-over Marxism that has failed over and over again for 100 years.

Your President left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And his associations include the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as the President's "spiritual mentor"; and a real-life, actual terrorist who served as the President's colleague and political sponsor.

2012 looks like 1978-- then we had high gasoline prices, problems with Iran, and an incompetent one term President; today we have high gasoline prices, problems with Iran, and praying our incompetent President is only one term.

The President and the media blame oil companies for gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a most major oil companies is less than half that of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

Your incumbent President gets reelected, look at the four years worth of mess he's going to inherit!

I can assure that my colleagues in CPS remove kids from the homes of those who inappropriately discipline their children and from those who are filthy drug addicts, as long as someone makes them aware of the children in either circumstance.


The problem is that people who use corporal punishment to keep their kids in line also expose those children to the very people who are most likely to report the bruises to us: teachers, doctors, nurses and relatives.


Drug addicts are frequently cut off from the people who are most likely to call CPS, due to their lifestyles. We catch their babies at the hospital right after their births, if we are lucky.

The parents who only have anger issues are also the ones who are most likely to get their children back, because they love their children, they are usually overwhelmed by circumstances and just need someone to talk to. They love their kids and their use of physical discipline is due to their fears of what can happen to their children in a dangerous world. Junkies/crackheads don't care that much about their kids.

Your President denies being a member of the socialist New Party, when a member roster of the Chicago chapter of the party lists him joining on Jan. 11, 1996.

Your President claims his father got to study in the U.S. thanks to JFK's efforts to bring "young Africans over to America," when in fact the Kenyan airlift his father participated in occurred in 1959 under Ike.

Your President claims his parents decided to marry in the excitement of the Selma civil-rights march of 1965 — and that he personally has "a claim on Selma" — when in fact they were married several years earlier.

Your President claims his father "fought when he got back to Kenya against tribalism and nepotism, but ultimately was blackballed from the government," when in fact he fought against capitalism and lost his job when he advocated communism.

Your President believes the government will do a better job of spending the money you earn than you would.

Your President believes that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if you don't start driving a Prius.

Your leftist political party believes that business should not be allowed to keep profits for themselves; but should give money above break even to the government for redistribution as they see fit. [Following the Communist agenda]

Your President believes oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

Your government requires every citizen to prove they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.

Those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.

In just three days you learned more about James Holmes than you know about the President of the U.S.

Nearly 500,000 federal employees now make at least $100,000 a year.

Unemployment is at or above 8%, the net worth of the average American has gone down 40% in the last 4 years, the deficit has climbed above $16 trillion, our credit rating has been dropped...twice, $15 million more Americans are on welfare/foodstamps, 45 million Americans are on some kind of public assistance, we had an ambassador tortured and murdered along with 3 others, our flag is being burned all over the Middle East, our embassies are being raided and our flags being replaced with Al Qaeda flags, all while our president and secy of state apologize, and some people think we're better off than we were 4 years ago.
