Think About It…….                                                                                    September 11, 1013

Sometimes when you look around our country and see what is going on, you tend to think that Americans in our country seem to be hell bent on self destruction.  Here is our Top Ten List of America’s stupidity:

10) Only in America…..could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $40,000 a plate campaign fund raiser.

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 over 20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black, and 40% of all entitlements go to black Americans – 3 times more than whites, 5 times the rate that goes to Hispanics…!

8)   Only in America…..could they have had the two people most responsible for the tax code, Timothy Geithner (head of Treasury) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee) who both turned out to be big tax cheats and 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 of citizenship, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks across the border into to the country illegally just “magically” become American citizens.

5)   Only in America…..could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking to 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, but not to vote. Anyone can do that….several times.

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, yet still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has in a single year, for total spending of more than $7 million per Minute, and complain that it doesn’t have 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 pay no income taxes at all.

Today’s Top Ten…Only in America.
