Who is doing the math for the USA?

The definition of the word  Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing, notes T.G. our Alaska Contributor:

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.
