Top 10

I have writer's block.  So, I am forwarding this message to you.

I call this bizarro world and we really are living in it.  We have removed all reason and sanity from the public debate.  Anyone who has morals and principles is labeled "evil, extreme, a terrorist and racist."  We have elevated childish finger pointing and name calling into the highest political arena.  The role of grown-up is "stupid."  Balancing the budget is somehow hateful, enabling people to be irresponsible is ok, but keeping your own money isn't.

What have we done to this republic?  What are we doing to this republic?  History will look back upon this time as the craziest ever.

I don't know if this is from Canada or not, but it would be funny, if it weren't so horrible.

         Canadian's Version of David Letterman's Top 10.

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 the 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 an American

5) Only in America ... could the people who believe in balancing the budget
and following 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 that of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

2) Only in America ... could the government collect more tax dollars from
their people than any nation in recorded history, and 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 the 47% of their people
who don't pay any income taxes at all.
