THIS IS WHAT HAS BECOME OF IT WHILE WE WRE SLEEPING. WAKE UP, PASS IT ON.

TOP-10 “Only In   America” Observations ~ by a  Canadian:
 
1) Only in America, could   politicians talk about the  greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate   campaign fund-raising event.
 
2)  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 18% of the federal workforce is black while only 12% of the    population is black.
3) 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.
 
4) 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.  
 
5) 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 we discuss letting  anyone who sneaks into the country   illegally just ‘magically’ become American  citizens.  
 
6) Only in America, could the   people who believe in balancing  the budget and sticking by the country’s   Constitution be thought of as  “extremists.”
 
7) Only in America, could you   need to present a driver’s  license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but   not to vote.
 
8) 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).
 
9) 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.
 
10) 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.
