Top 10 Only in America

evolution of manTop Ten List of America’s Stupidity

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 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!

8) Only in America … could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (Obama’s first Treasury Secretary) 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, 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 (49.5% of all Americans!) .

  5. What a tragic state of affairs. And it seems we will never be free of this hideous ruling junta.

    My dad told me once that when FDR was elected there were many who believed America was ruined. So it’s clear this nation has survived other Soviet style regimes.

    I personally believe that this president and all his thugs will be removed by God Almighty in answer to the cry of His people for rescue.

    • I hope you’re right, Trail Dust. The gospel yesterday was about persistence in prayer. If enough voices cry out, God will answer.

  6. It won’t stop until American citizens wizen up and do their research to name and locate the global elitists who are really in control of our government and those of the others in the so-called free world. At this point, it really doesn’t matter who is elected because they are all controlled by those who are putting in place the New World Order. They want us to be bogged down with controversies, scandals, inaction, etc. It makes the implementation of their agendas so much easier while we and our legislators are distracted from what is really going on.
