Below is what our Canadian friends are thinking about us in the USA and what one conservative new-media outlet published.
This is so sad; from a proud, strong country to a laughing stock of the world…
Canadian’s Version of David Letterman’s Top 10. Just makes you want to shake your head in disbelief, and, just maybe choke someone in charge…
Of course, we look like idiots we are…
Only in America… could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 per plate Obama campaign fund-raising event.
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!
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.
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.
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).
Only in America… could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be called EXTREMISTS.
Only in America… could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, or board a commercial aircraft, but not to vote.
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).
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 has per year – for total spending of $7 Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.
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 felt compelled to comment on this article. Whether or not the talking points have been actually recorded as being heard, obviously somebody has thought of them. An ex-pat Canadian (not in America), I can honestly say Canadians ought not to be so smug. Canada is not much better, it’s just that Canada is still rather sophisticated in hiding her junk. However, this is beginning to change, the flies are definitely making their presence known, and once Justin Trudeau becomes the (next?) Prime Minister, it will like an over-full garbage bag suddenly bursting open, spewing its contents all over the street for all the neighbours to see. He even has patterned his campaign after President Obama, including the “change” slogan. Scary, stuff, man. There have been several high-level ministers from the current government who have retired as of late, for various reasons. There is truth to the saying nations get the leaders they deserve. Isaiah 3:1-5.
My feeling is you are right. It might be the first step in recognizing the common core problems in our contemporary existence using the USA as an example, and then applying all that to Canada.
