From my firend Helen:

                            Conundrum to think about

Free people are not equal. Equal people are not free.

"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 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.
