Too True

From my man Mr. No...


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 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

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

7) Only in America could you need to
present a driver's license to cash a
check or buy alcohol, but not to

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

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

10) Only in America could
politicians talk about the greed of
the rich at a $35,000.00 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 reelected.
