Top-11 “Only In America” Observations

By An Unknown Canadian

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.

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 their tax code,  Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the U.S. House 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 yet advocate 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 a total spending of  $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough  money.
10) Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund-raising  event.
11) Only in America can a man with no background, no qualifications and no experience …and a complete failure at his job … be re-elected President.

    Only in America can such a slanted and ill-informed rant have a chance to go viral. There isn’t even an author’s name to this.
