    Maybe this stuff is too deep for the "New" touchy-feely above it all Democrats?




    Only in America---Top Ten


    1) Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich
    at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

    2) Only in America could people claim that the government still
    discriminates against black Americans when we have a black President,
    a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is
    black. Just 12% of the population is black.

    3) Only in America could we 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 we 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 we 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 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 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.
