This is Canada's Top Ten List of America's  Stupidity
Of course we look like idiots .... because we are!
Number 10) Only in America... could politicians talk about the  greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 per plate campaign fund-raising  event.

Number 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!
Number 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.
Number 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.
Number 6) Only in America... would they make people who want to  legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay  thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who  sneaks into the country illegally just 'magically' become American citizens  (probably should be number one).
Number 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."
Number 4) Only in America... could you need to present a driver's  license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote!
Number 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).
Number 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.
And Number 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 .
