Joke of the Day...

"So, I was walking through Chicago and I saw that there was a "Muslim Book Store."
I was wondering what exactly was in a Muslim bookstore, so I went in.
As I was wandering around taking a look, the clerk stopped me and asked if he could help me.
I imagine I didn't look like his normal clientele, so I asked, “Do you have a copy of Donald Trump's book on his U.S. Immigration Policy regarding Muslims and illegal Mexicans?"
The clerk said, "F*ck off, get out and stay out!"
I said, "Yes, that's the one! Do you have it in paperback?"" [ECS]

America: Founded by geniuses; run by idiots?

Jeff Foxworthy, via Facebook:
If plastic water bottles are okay, but plastic bags are banned — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots
If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If an 80-year-old woman who is confined to a wheelchair or a three-year-old girl can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is 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 nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is “cute” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

Cruz: 5 things I'll do on my first day as President

Ted Cruz has laid out five actions that he'd take on his first day in office.  The Daily Signal reports:
The first action would be to “rescind every illegal executive action taken by Barack Obama,” including his “executive amnesty.”
Next, he would “instruct the Department of Justice to open an investigation into Planned Parenthood” and to prosecute any criminal conduct uncovered.
Then he would instruct the Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service to “cease persecuting” individuals seeking to practice their faith in their workplace.
The Little Sisters of the Poor, he said, “would receive a letter in the mail that their case has been dismissed.” He said they would also receive “an invitation to the White House to tell their story to the world.”Then he would “end the catastrophic Iranian nuclear deal.”
Cruz argued that by lifting economic sanctions on Iran, the Obama administration had become “the leading global financier of radical Islamic terrorism.”Finally, he would “begin the process to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.”
Moving the embassy to Israel’s “eternal capital,” he said, would send “a message to the world that we stand with our allies.” [ECS]
