Only in America

This is making the e-mail rounds, but it's so very relevant, I had to post it:

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 goes 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.

Worth Noting

Forwarded to me, source and author Unknown:

During the 3-1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the U.S. produced:
 
22 aircraft carriers
8 battleships
48 cruisers
349 destroyers
420 destroyer escorts
203 submarines
34 million tons of merchant ships
100,000 fighter aircraft
98,000 bombers
24,000 transport aircraft
58,000 training aircraft
93,000 tanks
257,000 artillery pieces
105,000 mortars
3,000,000 machine guns
2,500,000 military trucks.
 
We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately defeated Japan and Germany.
 
It's worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn't build a functioning web site

NObama's 2013 Top Ten List ...

 ...of people and things thrown under NObama's Hope and
 Change Bus:


Ten People-Groups-and-Countries Thrown Under Obama's  Bus in 2013


by Kerry Picket

One of the hallmarks of the Obama Administration has been a pass-the-buck mentality where President Barack Obama rarely claims responsibility for scandals or failures. In 2013, this trend continued, with federal agencies, political allies, service members, and even whole countries thrown under Obama's bus.

Some Comments:


 
First of all the reining (sic) party has absolute power (the Repubs are so fractured and full of cronyism, they are worthless) and second, if you attack Obama's agenda you are deemed racist. The blade held over America's head is if you try to impeach Obama or bring him to justice, a race war will ensue. Obama and Jarret both made statements that when they get in power there will be hell to pay.

I'm sorry, but... I just can't see Barry as having the smarts to take the helm of the conspiracy. There's somebody else pulling the strings. Somebody, somewhere has the goal of creating a worldwide socialist/communist State... and they're doing a pretty good job of setting it up.
The impending collapse of the entire insurance industry is the perfect example.
Insurance rules investments on nearly every financial endeavor undertaken.
The entire "Obamacare" system is designed to fail, so that we can be "saved" by a single-payer system provided by our "generous" government.
Properly run, I might be OK with a single-payer system.
The problem is that it would be run by the same incompetents that run the DMV, the IRS, and the NSA
:
Obama is the most despicable, incompetent and dishonest president in all American history. The only thing protecting him from impeachment and prosecution is his skin color.

Season's Greetings


Breaking news !!!


The Supreme Court has ruled that there cannot be a Nativity Scene in Washington, DC this Holiday season. 


This is not for any religious reason; they simply have been unable to find three wise men or a virgin in the Nation's capitol.

There was no problem, however, finding enough asses to fill the stable.

Mr. Grumpy's Traditional Fruitcake Recipe


Items needed:
    
4 oz. fruit bits
1 railroad tie
  Wood saw
  Large rubber mallet
  Safety goggles

Wearing your safety goggles, cut a one-foot section from the middle of your railroad tie. 

The resulting block of wood should be the size and shape of a loaf of bread. 

Then, take some fruit bits and pound them into the block with your rubber mallet. 

Spread the colors around or you might wind up with an ugly fruitcake! 

Then take the fruitcake and set it on top of your garage for a year. 

After 12 months, cover tightly in a plastic wrap and give your loved ones the timeless and enduring gift of fruitcake.

   Disclaimer # 1: This is NOT a real fruitcake recipe. This is a JOKE. And I have to say this because there just might be someone out there somewhere who will make it and try to eat it.

    Disclaimer # 2: I am NOT a fruitcake-hater. I like Fruitcake (well, some, especially Claxton's)

Disparity

WHY is this country flying our flag at half-staff for even one day to honor a democratic socialist, openly opposed to capitalism, private land-ownership and the power of big money, influenced by Marxism (wikipedia)

and has done exactly what for this country?

One word. Obummer

This is disturbing since Obummer essentially snubbed long-long-time world ally Great Britain:

On Friday, the White House announced that President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama would travel to South Africa next weeks to pay their respects to Nelson Mandela. Obama has already announced that the White House will fly the flags at half-staff though December 9 in Mandela’s honor.



When former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died, President Obama did not lower the White House flags, nor did he attend her funeral, instead sending ex-Secretaries of State George Shultz and James Baker III. The Sun reported, “[Downing] Street is most angered by rejections from Obama, First Lady Michelle and Vice-President Joe Biden....

Some comments:

 Miller12:
 Seriously, get lost, hide down there from your lies and failures for the rest of your term. I could care less what Veronica and Jug Head do, where they go, or what they say. Someday soon "Our long national nightmare will be over"and class can return to the White House.

PoliticalBelle:
 I think Obama gave a big sigh of relief yesterday. This will serve as a media distraction from Obamacare and he can stand there and let all his fawning admirers make comparisons to him and Mandela.

KevSanders:
He couldn't attend the 150th of Gettysburg,because of a scheduling conflict.
A date known for the last 150 years.

He can attend the funeral of Mandela.
A date known for only a day.

Artie:
Well the Mandela funeral is halfway around the world while Gettysburg is only 60 minutes away. Don't want the engines on AF1 to get too cool. And how long has it been since Michelle has had a foreign vacation?
