    Top 10 "Only in America"

    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 ( MarathonOil) 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.

    I'm sure this was a very non-ideological copy/paste of GOP snide caricatures of another party's positions. I cannot for the life of me think of what that other party might be....  

    Mr. Bipartisan strikes again.  



    Oh it's partisan alright and also a parody!

    Well it is true that the ROIC for BIG OIL is small compared to the ROIC of companies like Apple, Microsoft, Google, Goldman Sachs, GE etc etc.
