Opinionated and Loving It!

I am a 40-something professional woman with a loving husband and a wonderful college-aged daughter. I am opinionated and always have been. Some things I have strong feelings on and others will be all fluff. You don't have to agree with me, but I appreciate this forum with which to express my opinions. So, those who don't like my opinions can find another blog to read - it won't hurt my feelings....really.

Stupid Government Forms

Okay, part of my plan to stay alive after 12/21/2012 is to arm myself, so I've decided to apply for a FOID card. Simple enough, right?

So, question number 5 of this form is (and I quote):

"Are you mentally retarded?"



Forget for the moment that this is SO politically incorrect and cruel and think about the question. That is being asked. On a government form. Requesting permission to own a firearm.

Who IN their RIGHT mind would answer that question in the affirmative? Particularly if they do want to own a firearm. I'm half tempted to answer "yes" just to see if they process the application and issue the card. But the fee is non-refundable and I'm NOT going to support the efforts of a government that is SO stupid as to ask such an offensive question on a form.

What a bunch of bureaucratic morons. That question should be posed of them before they can file to run for office.

Sometimes...I'm ashamed of our country.
