Only In America

Jul 27th 2014 new
Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the
rich at a $35,000.00 per plate Obama campaign fund-raising event.

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.

Only in America....could the people who believe in balancing
the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of
as EXTREMISTS.

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

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.

Only in America... could the President play golf, fund raise, and go to
other countries talking about the need to help their poor, and call it a
day-- totally bypassing the fact that he was elected to Uphold and
Defend the Constitution and that past Presidents concentrated their
efforts on helping Americans.

Great post Marianne. Is this a reprint from somewhere else, or is it an original you just compiled?

I took some of the things from different places and changed it a bit to make it
easier to read for our CM audience.

I bet we all could start a thread entitled, "Only in America" and have plenty of

posts to add.

I may be preaching to the choir, but this choir listens.

What about if we add that Only in America, do we have Government workers
with ethics carried forward from the Russian Communist Era. (How else could the catastrophe in the Veteran Hospitals get so bad? We have lazy unmotivated
Governmental workers. And plenty of dead, untreated heroes caught in the crossfire.)

Only in America could a man like Warren Buffitt, the second richest man in the USA- third richest in the world, claim that he does not pay enough in taxes when he is perfectly free to donate as much of his wealth to the Government in addition to any taxes he owes. There is even a line on the form for him to do this.

But he never pays more than the calculated tax.
