Only In America....

Only in America.....

could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund raising event.

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 Hispanics!

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.

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.

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.

could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as “extremists.”

could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

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).

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.

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.

Bizzaro America



It will burn to the ground some day and those who care about the America described in the Constitution will rebuild. The others will move to Canada or Mexico when the hand-outs stop.

I live in a world I no longer understand. Sometimes I'm glad I'm old so I won't live long enough to see the complete dismantling of our once great country. I haven't given up, but the future isn't as bright for my grand kids as it was for me. Just my opinion, YMMV.

Totally agree. I'm sure we are all concerned for our grandkids. I try to instill a sense of self reliance in them when I can. I also reference the Constitution when they tell me about school assignments I don't agree with. They all have their own copy. The 3 yo is the only one that can't read it for himself. My kids & their spouse all share similar beliefs as myself (duh, wonder how that happened) only more so. :thumbsup:

That generation may be the salvation of this country.

We have a divided society, those that work for a living and those that vote for a living. Unfortunately those that work for a living are growing older and dieing off. Remember the government that robs Peter and pays Paul will always have the support of Paul.
