America Is Nuts!


America Is Nuts!

I received the following from a dear friend.

This particular item has circulated the internet for some time. It is purported to have originated in Canada, however, its origin and author are unknown.

Wherever this list is from and whoever the author was does not matter to me…because the list is true.

Though I cannot vouch for each of the exact percentages quoted, or the exact dollar figures, there should be no doubt about the general truth and essential stupidity of these true and shameful allegations.

Perhaps there was a time in our history when America could count on the “wisdom of an informed voting public to sustain us”…that assumption should now be in grave and fearful doubt.

America has become a cornucopia of crazy and self-defeating cultural practices that defy logic and diminish ability our ability to survive as a leading Nation.

The following is a document that will confront you with this reality….see for yourself!

Reality may set you free, but first it will make you miserable.

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

Of course we look like idiots – we are!

# 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.

# 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 Hispanic

# 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.

# 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.

# 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)

# 05 Only in America … could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be called EXTREMISTS

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

# 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).

# 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.

# 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.

Bonus: ” Only in America do you have to pass a drug test to get a pay check, yet any crack head can get their welfare check no questions asked.”

PLEASE DON’T KEEP THIS – SEND IT OUT TO YOUR ENTIRE LIST.
