Only in America ...........

Post  Skeptical on Wed Apr 16, 2014 11:22 am



This may not be new to many visitors here but IMHO it needs repeated.  Many of these are so true and just the opposite of what I recall about this country while growing up ... before it became to politically correct.

Only In America

10. Only in America .... Could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.

9. Only in America .... Could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General and roughly 39% of the federal workforce is black, while only 14% of the population is black. 45+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!

8. Only in America ..... Could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

7. Only in America .... Can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash

6. Only in America .... Would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just 'magically' become American citizens

5. Only in America .... Could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as "extremists."

4. Only in America .... Could you need to present a driver's license to cash a check or buy alcohol (you know, prove who you are), but not to vote

3. Only in America .... Could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. Oil company ( Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

2. Only in America .... Could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year - for total spending of $7 Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn't have nearly enough money.

1. Only in America .... Could the rich people - who pay 86% of all income taxes - be accused of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any income taxes at all.

I am sure Sir Twinkies of Sodom will discount this as Tea Party nonsense.
