Top Ten List of America’s Stupidity

cute-18927_640This “Top Ten List of America’s Stupidity” was sent to me recently by a reader (Linda W).

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 federal government still discriminates against black Americans when we have a black President, a black Attorney General and when roughly 18% – 20% of the federal workforce is black, and according to US Department of Health and Human Service, 39.8 % of all federal entitlements go to black Americans, despite making up approximately only 14% of the total U.S. population.

8) Only in America … could they have had the two people most responsible for the 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.

  1. Could you provide the sources for yoUr Numbers?

  2. Nebraska Woman says:

    #4. Voter fraud is so rampant that there will not be an honest election ever in the USA, yet politicians, the Supreme Court, the executive branch, and the ever growing bureacracies seem to ignore the Constitution…I’m sorry. I forgot that the aforementioned Constitution was written before the current bunch of traitors-in-office.
    Good article, and unfortunately it all rings as truth. A+

  3. Nice article. Kea………instead of asking for others hard research work, why don’t you go seek it out for yourself.

  4. #4 – I have had to show my drivers license for at least the last 4 primary elections. I’d be more worried about ‘absentee ballots’ that are mailed in or placed in a drop box.

    • Or some states that only have mail in ballots. Never thought that was good.

      • GoneWithTheWind says:

        I live in a state where all voting is by mail. When I moved a few years ago I was in the country election office registering to vote when a woman walked in with a handful of voter registration forms and placed them on the counter and walked out. I asked the clerk what that was all about. She said that individuals are allowed to “register” voters and drop off the forms with no questions asked. I said, how do you know they are legally eligible to vote or that they are real people? She said we don’t. That is how easy it is to cheat on elections in a vote by mail state.

  5. I love the article but it grieves me since it is all true.

  6. So true.
    I have sent this list to my brothers, I will see if they have anything to add!

  7. My question is why ID for guns but not voting. They are both Rights.

  8. Please don’t forget those fools over the water in UK….they have similar incompetence, hypocrisy and total lack of common sense.

  9. #1. no sympathy , when the rich stop sending american jobs overseas , they then can pay less taxes . People without jobs cant pay taxes and become a burden to the system …………..Just sayin .

  10. mom of three says:
