Who knows where Folk Tales really originate. Since AL Goracle invented :lol: the Internet, folk tales have run rampant and tend to create their own god-like existence passed on by individuals having read some narrative that caught their attention. A recent post being passed around is “A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots”. I have seen versions of the post on multiple sights including Quad City Online. Like any good tale the content stokes the flame of the soul, whom agrees with the material, and makes you say that author hit the nail squarely on the head. Of course like any good Folk Tale the author in this case will probably always be a mystery though at least one sight -Social News Daily- posted the content can be traced back to someone named Fritz Edmunds, whom adapted it from a chain email. Whomever and wherever it originated from, I, like many, find the content rings true while sticking a finger in the eye of Progressive Big Government Mentality. Kudos to whomever created it and all those that have added to the Tales existence! Following are excerpts from the version I have enjoyed the most found on the Conservative Hammers blog:
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.
