Only in America: Canada’s Version of Letterman’s Top Ten!


Canada’s version of David
          Letterman 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.
