    FACT-CHECKERS UNITE!!

    This is Canada's Top Ten List of America's Stupidity.


    Number 10 . Only in America...could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 per plate campaign fund-raising event.

    Number 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!

    Number 8 . Only in America...could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geitner (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.

    Number 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.

    Number 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 (probably should be number one).

    Number 5 . Only in America....could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as “extremist”.

    Number 4. Only in America...could you need to present a driver's license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

    Number 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).

    Number 2. Only in America do they 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.

    And Number 1. Only in America...could the rich people (top 20%) 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.

    It would make sense, this is from a chain email that was posted on a blog over 2 years ago. It has also been copy and pasted on thousands of other little patriot freedom blogs.

    giddy, you're that one "special" relative everybody has that drives others to leave the room at family gatherings. Stop it.

    LOL. If you talk to a canadian, the thing they most laugh about is the US health care program. It's not even on the list. What a troll
