    Only in America

    This is so sad; from a proud, strong country to a laughing stock of the world.Canadians Version of David Letterman's Top 10. Just makes you want to shake your head in disbelief, and, just maybe choke someone in charge.



    This is Canada's Top Ten List of America's Stupidity.





    Of course we look like idiots - we are!





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



    # 09 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 20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black, 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans - 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!

    ,

    # 08 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.



    # 07 Only in America... can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that we are insensitive and Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.



    # 06 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. (probably should be number one)



    # 05 Only in America... could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be called EXTREMISTS.



    # 04 Only in America do you need to present a driver's license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.



    # 03 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).



    # 02 Only in America... could you 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. Our assets do not equal our liabilities. We're bankrupt.



    # 01 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 and haven't for generations.



    The world laughs at us.

    It`s pretty bad when those on the outside can see what`s going on in this country, better than those in this country. This country need a big enema to flush out all of the schit that`s running this country into the ground. We need to start at the white house and work our way down.

    And the sad thing is, we did it to ourselves. I know a lot of people have been Democrats for a long time. Even their parents were.
    But the Democrat Party Has been hijacked by Left Wing Socialist/Communists. So now when you vote you old Democratic ticket, you vote to destroy the America you were born and raised in. There is no reason to not open your eyes and use you brain and vote the candidate that will make America better. Stop being sucked in by promises of FREE STUFF! There is nothing FREE in this world. Chose a candidate by what they've done, not what they say they will do. Like the old saying, "you can't change a leopards spots". People do what they do, seldom change. They may try to hide their past (Obama's sealed records comes to mind) but they will do what they have always done.
    If a candidate is considered the "Popular" guy or gal, don't be the dunce that uses that as your reason to vote for them. If they are not going to do good things to make America a stronger country, then they should be dumped. Do your own research. Find out the truth. Truth will set you free.
    In Government, the biggest givers are usually the biggest takers, because Government generates no income, it just takes yours.

    Our media has helped make us as ignorant as we are today. Sad to say, but we'd be better off reading foreign newspapers to find out what's really going on in our own country. Great Britain, Canada, and even Russian newspapers have more info on us than ours do.
    Apparently they don't have to be screened by our administration before publication.

    Indeed. It is used to win elections, deceive and just plain control. Try to counter it and that agency is labeled as bias, crazy or "trying to make it political".
