THE WISDOM OF JUNIUS P. LONG


“If we concentrated on the really important things in life

securedownloadthere’d be a shortage of fishing poles.”

Brownwater Jimster sends me this to share with you. As most know, I tread lightly on political subjects because they are, like religion, fraught with chuckholes. However, when someone like Mr. J.P. Long emerges and points out the sky is indeed falling (and he’s right), I feel obligated to second the sentiment.

Here are Mr. Long’s well-reasoned observations on the state of the Union.

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without

a license, but not for being in the country illegally …

you might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on

a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get

an abortion …

You might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to show identification to board an airplane,

cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book,

but not to vote who runs the government …

You might live in a country run by idiots.

If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding

citizens from owning gun magazines with more than

ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy

new, temporary leaders in Egypt …

You might live in a country run by idiots.

If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas,

but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a

sugary drink might make you fat …

You might live in a country run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched

by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to

having her neck and head searched …

You might live in a country run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to

eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions

more …

You might live in a country run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school

for saying his teacher’s “cute,” but hosting a sexual

exploration or sexual diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable …

You might live in a country run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes

and more government intrusion, while not working

is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid,

subsidized housing and free cell phones …

You might live in a country run by idiots.

If the government’s plan for getting people back to

work is to incentivize NOT working with 99 weeks

of unemployment checks and no requirement to

prove they applied but can’t find work …

You might live in a country run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself

makes you more “safe” according to the government …

You might live in a country run by idiots.

P.S. My grandson Conner, who recently graduated from fourth grade, was unceremoniously suspended for noticing that some of the girls in his class were developing “female” attributes. His mistake was to comment on it to a fellow classmate. I have no doubt now that the inmates are in charge of the asylum. Political correctness is haute couture. One wears it now at the risk of being considered uncouth. I was born of the old neanderthal school epitomized by the Byrds song:

She may beg, she may plead

She may argue with her logic

And then mention all the things I’ll lose

That really have no value

In the end she will surely know

I wasn’t born to follow.

I make no apologies for myself. When you are raised properly, you don’t have to change your mores like womens’ skirt/dress hemlines. You inherently know what is correct and acceptable. You don’t have to consult with the Ellen DeGeneres’ of life to avoid social opprobrium. This facet of my personality makes Cupcake’s hair stand on end in public, too. She is convinced I suffer Tourette’s syndrome. Onward through the fog. God sends the Right.

    Lots of apples and oranges comparisons and half truths. The interesting thing is that politicians and people who complain about welfare and unemployment live in the states where most of the welfare and unemployment occurs. Junious P.Long is old enough to remember Keynesian economics. It works a lot beter than supply side economics of the last administration.

  2. Reblogged this on Political Baseballs and commented:
    It is not “politcally correct.” But then again, the people who are have never stood for anything in their lives, so there’s that…
