Top 10 - Only In America

No. 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. 

No. 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! 

No. 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.  

No. 07 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. 

No. 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) 

No. 05 Only  in  America ... Could the people who believe in balancing the budget and  sticking by the country's Constitution be called EXTREMISTS.

No. 04 Only  in  America ... Could you need to present a driver's license to cash a check  or buy alcohol, but not to vote. 

No. 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). 

No. 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. 

No. 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.
