20 Only In America Ironies

Excerpt:

1) Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

2) Only in America could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when we have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black.

3) Only in America could we 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.

4) Only in America will you find people who burn the American flag and call America an “imperialist nation,” but who get offended if you say they’re not patriotic.

5) Only in America can we 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.

    I frequently laugh at your irreverent blogs but this one makes me want to let go and CRY!

    Only in America could I as an active service member be asked to give my opinion of President Jimmy Carter’s administration. Then be told that I could not re-enlist after ten years because I was critical of the government.

  3. CTCompromise says:

    * Only in America could someone be elected President by promising the MOST transparent government, and then spend millions of tax dollars hiding everything possible about their past; without the mainstream media wondering why.

  4. CTCompromise says:

    * Only in America will you find a government which promotes the idea that 26 years old is an acceptable age to still have your parents responsible for you.

  5. CTCompromise says:
