Canada's Top Ten List of Americas Stupidity.

This is so sad; from a proud, strong country to a laughing stock of the world. Canadians Version of David Letterman’s Top 10. Just makes you want to shake your head in disbelief,
and, just maybe choke someone in charge. This is Canada's Top Ten List of Americas Stupidity. Of course we look like idiots-we are!


#10 Only in America ... could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 per plate Obama campaign fund-raising event.

#09 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
20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black, 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans - 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to
Hispanics!

#08 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.

#07 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.

#06 Only in America ... could you collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it hasper year - for total spending of
$7 Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

#05 Only in America ... could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be called EXTREMISTS.

#04 Only in America … could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

#03 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).

#02 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. (probably should be number one)

#01 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.


That pretty much sums it up.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks but Jimmie Dem has an opposing view and not convinced.
He thinks things in this country are as good as his idol in the white house tells him.

Pedro's list has only one item (Tim Geithner) that can be verified, and in fact seems to me to be the only one that might be correct. The remaining 9 items are clearly republican bullet points which don't rely on facts, being strictly opinions. Minimally, the remaining items might be worth debating, but probably not even those.

On the topic, I hope Greta doesn't land on CNN or MSNBC. Who needs her? She's just a Hannity in disguise. :)

EXACTLY !!

It made me wonder what Jimmie was saying when he said my list was ' debunked ' a few years ago.
Made me ask By Who ? :|

Though , I believe the tax comment is pretty much on target.
I have heard that this past year , the IRS took in more than any year before.
So Dems , where's the money and what did we get for it ??

Gingrich coughs — while remarking on Clinton's coughing

Image

Newt Gingrich on Tuesday was heard coughing briefly during an interview with Fox News's Sean Hannity at the same time he was highlighting a story about Hillary Clinton coughing.

"I think we need to know if she's healthy," Hannity, a supporter of Donald Trump, said during the segment on his radio show. "She doesn't seem to have a lot of energy."

Gingrich recalled speaking with Bill Clinton during the mid-90s about the former president's bouts with acid reflux.
"Her coughs are much deeper than his and last much longer, so I don't know what her problem is," Gingrich stated.

"I hope she's all right," Gingrich said, adding that her coughing fit Monday was "a little disturbing."

Gingrich mentioned the concussion she suffered in 2012 while serving as secretary of State.

"Has that recovered? Does she now have a better memory than she used to? Was it only this period involving her emails that she had a bad memory?" Gingrich asked.

Later in the interview he was heard turning from the microphone to cough.

"Now you sound like Hillary," Hannity joked, asking if he could get him some water.

"No, I'm in good shape," Gingrich responded. "At least I'm in better shape than Hillary."

Gingrich explained that he flies a lot and his throat gets dry.

"You have to keep hydrated big time," Hannity responded.

Clinton jabbed at Trump amid a coughing fit that erupted when she was on stage at a campaign rally Monday in Cleveland.

“Every time I think about Trump I get allergic,” Clinton said as she continued to cough.

Clinton's campaign has in recent weeks slammed insinuations from Trump and allies that she is in poor health, instead pushing Trump to reveal his full medical records.

Trump on Tuesday criticized media for not covering Clinton's latest coughing fit, tweeting, "What's up?"

Megyn Kelly leaving Fox News for NBC

Image

Megyn Kelly, a star host at Fox News whose profile soared after a feud with Donald Trump, will leave the network for a prominent role at NBC News.

Kelly will host a daytime news and discussion program, anchor a Sunday-night newsmagazine show and be featured in NBC’s political programming and other big-event coverage, the network said Tuesday.

Kelly, 46, has been the host of Fox’s second-most-watched program, “The Kelly File,” and has been a breakout personality in the cable news landscape. Her departure will leave a big programming hole in Fox’s prime-time lineup, which has been anchored by her 9 p.m. program and Bill O’Reilly’s “The O’Reilly Factor” at 8 p.m.

Mercedes, BMW, and Hyundai dump O'Reilly Factor amid lawsuits

Five companies pull ads from 'The O'Reilly Factor' in growing movement

"The O'Reilly Factor" is facing a growing advertiser revolt, as three major automakers and two other companies pulled their commercials from the show amid a scandal involving the host, Bill O'Reilly.

Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, BMW of North America, Constant Contact and Ainsworth Pet Nutrition are pulling ads from "The O'Reilly Factor" after a report about five settlements with women who alleged sexual harassment or verbal abuse by O'Reilly.

The decisions signal the potential of financial damage for "The O'Reilly Factor," the most popular show on cable news, and its network, Fox News.

The New York Times reported on Saturday that settlements of $13m (£10.4m) were reached with five women who accused him of inappropriate behaviour.

The network now faces lawsuits alleging both racial and sexual discrimination.

A Fox News contributor sued on Monday, alleging sexual harassment by its ousted former chairman, Roger Ailes.

Adding to the network's legal woes, a third African-American employee joined a racial discrimination lawsuit on Tuesday.

Monica Douglas, a Fox News accounts manager, alleges former executive Judy Slater repeatedly made racist comments and expressed "an unwillingness to even be near black people".

Ms Douglas said in her court filing that she first complained about Ms Slater in 2014, but "nothing was done".

Fox News drops 'fair and balanced' slogan without announcement

Daryl Cagle
Image

Fox News has dropped its slogan "fair and balanced".

An executive told CNN that the decision had "nothing to do with programming or editorial decisions".

Last August, producers were asked to use the slogan "Most watched, most trusted" instead but there has been no official announcement of the change.

Gabriel Sherman, the journalist, who broke the story tweeted that the slogan had been an "iconic tagline of the Roger Ailes era".

Mr Ailes, the founder and ex-chairman of Fox News, resigned last year after female employees made sexual harassment allegations against him, and died last month aged 77.

Fox News is arguably the most powerful voice in conservative media in the US.

President Donald Trump regularly quotes the channel in his frequent Twitter statements.

Never forget what your HERO did you lefty hypocrites!!!

Image
We'll never forget what Bill Clinton did. Thanks for raising the issue. 8)

Longest economic expansion in American history
The President's strategy of fiscal discipline, open foreign markets and investments in the American people helped create the conditions for a record 115 months of economic expansion. Our economy has grown at an average of 4 percent per year since 1993.

More than 22 million new jobs
More than 22 million jobs were created in less than eight years -- the most ever under a single administration, and more than were created in the previous twelve years.

Highest homeownership in American history
A strong economy and fiscal discipline kept interest rates low, making it possible for more families to buy homes. The homeownership rate increased from 64.2 percent in 1992 to 67. 7 percent, the highest rate ever.

Lowest unemployment in 30 years
Unemployment dropped from more than 7 percent in 1993 to just 4.0 percent in November 2000. Unemployment for African Americans and Hispanics fell to the lowest rates on record, and the rate for women is the lowest in more than 40 years.

Raised education standards, increased school choice, and doubled education and training investment
Since 1992, reading and math scores have increased for 4th, 8th, and 12th graders, math SAT scores are at a 30-year high, the number of charter schools has grown from 1 to more than 2,000, forty-nine states have put in place standards in core subjects and federal investment in education and training has doubled.

Largest expansion of college opportunity since the GI Bill
President Clinton and Vice President Gore have nearly doubled financial aid for students by increasing Pell Grants to the largest award ever, expanding Federal Work-Study to allow 1 million students to work their way through college, and by creating new tax credits and scholarships such as Lifetime Learning tax credits and the HOPE scholarship. At the same time, taxpayers have saved $18 billion due to the decline in student loan defaults, increased collections and savings from the direct student loan program.

Connected 95 percent of schools to the Internet
President Clinton and Vice President Gore's new commitment to education technology, including the E-Rate and a 3,000 percent increase in educational technology funding, increased the percentage of schools connected to the Internet from 35 percent in 1994 to 95 percent in 1999.

Lowest crime rate in 26 years
Because of President Clinton's comprehensive anti-crime strategy of tough penalties, more police, and smart prevention, as well as common sense gun safety laws, the overall crime rate declined for 8 consecutive years, the longest continuous drop on record, and is at the lowest level since 1973.

100,000 more police for our streets
As part of the 1994 Crime Bill, President Clinton enacted a new initiative to fund 100,000 community police officers. To date more than 11,000 law enforcement agencies have received COPS funding.

Enacted most sweeping gun safety legislation in a generation
Since the President signed the Brady bill in 1993, more than 600,000 felons, fugitives, and other prohibited persons have been stopped from buying guns. Gun crime has declined 40 percent since 1992.

Family and Medical Leave Act for 20 million Americans
To help parents succeed at work and at home, President Clinton signed the Family and Medical Leave Act in 1993. Over 20 million Americans have taken unpaid leave to care for a newborn child or sick family member.

Smallest welfare rolls in 32 years
The President pledged to end welfare as we know it and signed landmark bipartisan welfare reform legislation in 1996. Since then, caseloads have been cut in half, to the lowest level since 1968, and millions of parents have joined the workforce. People on welfare today are five times more likely to be working than in 1992.

Higher incomes at all levels
After falling by nearly $2,000 between 1988 and 1992, the median family's income rose by $6,338, after adjusting for inflation, since 1993. African American family income increased even more, rising by nearly $7,000 since 1993. After years of stagnant income growth among average and lower income families, all income brackets experienced double-digit growth since 1993. The bottom 20 percent saw the largest income growth at 16.3 percent.

Lowest poverty rate in 20 years
Since Congress passed President Clinton's Economic Plan in 1993, the poverty rate declined from 15.1 percent to 11.8 percent last year — the largest six-year drop in poverty in nearly 30 years. There are now 7 million fewer people in poverty than in 1993. The child poverty rate declined more than 25 percent, the poverty rates for single mothers, African Americans and the elderly have dropped to their lowest levels on record, and Hispanic poverty dropped to its lowest level since 1979.

Lowest teen birth rate in 60 years
In his 1995 State of the Union Address, President Clinton challenged Americans to join together in a national campaign against teen pregnancy. The birth rate for teens aged 15-19 declined every year of the Clinton Presidency, from 60.7 per 1,000 teens in 1992 to a record low of 49.6 in 1999.

Lowest infant mortality rate in American history
The Clinton Administration expanded efforts to provide mothers and newborn children with health care. Today, a record high 82 percent of all mothers receive prenatal care. The infant mortality rate has dropped from 8.5 deaths per 1,000 in 1992 to 7.2 deaths per 1,000 in 1998, the lowest rate ever recorded.

Deactivated more than 1,700 nuclear warheads from the former Soviet Union
Efforts of the Clinton-Gore Administration led to the dismantling of more than 1,700 nuclear warheads, 300 launchers and 425 land and submarine based missiles from the former Soviet Union.

Protected millions of acres of American land
President Clinton has protected more land in the lower 48 states than any other president. He has protected 5 new national parks, designated 11 new national monuments and expanded two others and proposed protections for 60 million acres of roadless areas in America's national forests.

Paid off $360 billion of the national debt
Between 1998-2000, the national debt was reduced by $363 billion — the largest three-year debt pay-down in American history. We are now on track to pay off the entire debt by 2009.

Converted the largest budget deficit in American history to the largest surplus
Thanks in large part to the 1993 Deficit Reduction Act, the 1997 Balanced Budget Act, and President Clinton's call to save the surplus for debt reduction, Social Security, and Medicare solvency, America has put its fiscal house in order. The deficit was $290 billion in 1993 and expected to grow to $455 billion by this year. Instead, we have a projected surplus of $237 billion.

Lowest government spending in three decades
Under President Clinton federal government spending as a share of the economy has decreased from 22.2 percent in 1992 to a projected 18.5 percent in 2000, the lowest since 1966.

Lowest federal income tax burden in 35 years
President Clinton enacted targeted tax cuts such as the Earned Income Tax Credit expansion, $500 child tax credit, and the HOPE Scholarship and Lifetime Learning Tax Credits. Federal income taxes as a percentage of income for the typical American family have dropped to their lowest level in 35 years.

More families own stock than ever before
The number of families owning stock in the United States increased by 40 percent since 1992.

Most diverse cabinet in American history
The President has appointed more African Americans, women and Hispanics to the Cabinet than any other President in history. He appointed the first female Attorney General, the first female Secretary of State and the first Asian American cabinet secretary ever.
