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

    TOP-10 "Only In America " Observations

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

    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.

    Sweet...the truth hurts!

    Thanks for the painful grins! ;)
    Decades of myopic perspective have left us with many embarrassing contradictions.
