TOP-11 "ONLY IN AMERICA" OBSERVATIONS -- BY A CANADIAN*

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.

2) 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 18% of the federal workforce is black while only 12% of the population is black

3) 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.

4) 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.

5) 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 we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just 'magically' become American citizens.

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

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

8) 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).

9) 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.

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

11) Only in America can a man with no background, no qualifications and no experience ... and a complete failure at his job ... be reelected.

Obama visits primary school
Barack Obama was visiting a primary school. They were discussing words and their
meanings. The teacher asked Obama if he would like to lead the discussion on the
word " tragedy. " So our illustrious president asked the class for an example of
a " tragedy. "

One little boy said : " If my best friend is playing in the field and a tractor
runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy. "

" No, " said Obama, " that would be an accident. "

A little girl : " If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff,
killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy. "

" I'm afraid not, " explained Obama. " That's what we would call a great loss. "

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Obama searched the room. "
Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy? "

Finally , Little Johnny raised his hand. " If the plane carrying you and Mrs.
Obama was struck by a ' friendly fire ' missile and blown to smithereens that
would be a tragedy. "

" Fantastic! " exclaimed Obama . "That's right. And can you tell me why that
would be tragedy? "

" Well, " says Johnny, " It has to be a tragedy, because it sure as hell
wouldn't be a great loss... And you can bet your sorry ass it's probably not an
accident either. "

I like this one: Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.

It goes along with a caption from the inauguration...

Inauguration 2013: A 2 day,$100 million event when rich Liberals and Hollywood elites wear all their bling and go to high society parties to celebrate the ascension of a man who spent the last 4 years demonizing wealth!

try

http://www.islamophobiatoday.com/2012/08/06/m...

"Islamic Center of Murfreesboro members will pass a field lined with 13 white crosses in front of Grace Baptist Church on Bradyville Pike on the way to their new mosque once it opens.'

“We wanted them to see the crosses and know how we felt about things.”

"The mosque next door has been the subject of intense scrutiny and debate in the past two years, including vandalism to its sign, a bomb threat, arson to construction equipment on site "

yep nothing like tolerance for religion.

and closer

http://www.nj.com/somerset/index.ssf/2013/01/...

"The town's parking ordinance suggests one parking space should suffice for every three seats in a church, but it does not specify parking standards for other religious institutions.

""With an anticipated congregation of 150, Bisogno said, the mosque should be required to provide 50 spaces."

"So the town is now asking the Islamic Society to build 110 parking spaces for the mosque."

How the hell does that case have any bearing on immigrants waiting years for their visa number to come up for an interview at their local American Consulate, when the illegal line-jumpers from Mexico just got the fast track to citizenship!

This policy is an insult to every immigrant who want to come here legally!

Jason, he's a Bush House druggie. He once tried to buy a gun from Donelly's gun shop with someone else's ID and he's friends with the Q-town trash. He comes on here with some of the dumbest statements you ever heard,just to be heard.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder? That's a textbook definition of a Liberal Democrat.
You have a compulsive need to tell other people how to run their lives according to the way you think it should be run.
