ONLY IN AMERICA-A Canadian Perspective


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

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 go to black Americans – 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!

8) 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.

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.

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.

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

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

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 ).

2) 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 money.

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.

God bless America!

Only in America do you need your parents' permission to get a tattoo but not an abortion.

Only in America can a inept community organ grinder become president

A debate is taking place in Iowa over the ability of people who are legally or completely blind to carry guns in public.

Only in America.

Gee Ducky,

I'm in Iowa and I haven't seen that on the news. Would you mind posting this information?

Duckys here said...

Ask and it shall be done

Blind man with a gun. Just what the 2nd amendment had in mind.

Ducky,

If you notice, it's a loophole. Not an intended one. I'm sure the lawmakers will be trying to fix that hole.

Nevertheless, it's more about "vision impaired" than "blind."

I'm vision impaired, 20/200 without my specs on, and that means the big E on the chart is blurry. Should I not be able to own a gun then?

Xavier Onassis said...

G.E.C. - Your 20/200 vision is only one of a MULTITUDE of reasons that I can come up with, based soley on what you have posted here, that should prohibit you from ever coming within reach of a firearm.

BTW Joe, I'm a bit disappointed in you! I would have thought that the 12th anniversary of 9/11 would have been the perfect opportunity for you to rant and rave about those eveil, public sector, union thugs you seem to despise so much. You know, police, fire, first responders and the rest of those parasites feasting on the taxpayers.

X.O.

you are an idiot. Complete and utter fool.

GEC: "...parents' permission to get a tattoo but not an abortion."

Isaiah 5:20 "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil."

Anonymous: Ha ha.....!

Ducky: What's wrong with blind people carrying guns?

XO: "... I would have thought that the 12th anniversary of 9/11..."

Yeah. I chose not to. Is that OK with you?
