Only In America #9

America-laugh-cryAmerica is an unique nation, culture, and People. No other place, no other idea, and no other people are quite the same as we are. American Exceptionalism is, in many and varied ways, a simple fact of life and objective reality.

America is a special nation.
Americans are special people.

America is, indeed, special in many ways. Sadly, some of those ways are more of the nature of “short bus special.”

Only In America #9

Only in America, could those described as rich people – who pay 86% of all federal income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by those people – approximately 43% of the adult population – who don’t pay any federal income taxes at all.

Yes, there are just some things that one can only find in America. This is something that the residents of other nations should, perhaps, be proud of and grateful for. 🙄

    America truly is a special place.

    It is a place where the only “spending” the governing cabal abhors is the spending involved in letting you keep your own money.

    It is a place where government can take 63 cents of your next dollar and it’s harpies can shout you down as being the greedy one when you mention it.

    It is a place where the “other” has first claim on every dollar you earn and gets to put your share of their burden up to a vote.

    We are truly blessed.
