"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."Cicero - 55 BC

In the cellars of the night, when the mind starts moving around old trunks
of bad times, the pain of this and the shame of that, the memory of a small
boldness is a hand to hold. -John Leonard, critic (1939-2008)

double click or, alternatively, can be copied and pasted into your browser window.
To copy and paste, you will need to highlight the entire tinyurl with your cursor then
copy and paste it into your browser window. Control C is the command "copy" and

REPAIRING LINKS: If the long link does not work, check it in your browser window for
spaces between characters after you paste it into your browser window.
If these are
found, they will often be at the place where the text changes color or the second line
begins. Put your cursor on the space and delete it and try again. It should work if you
found and deleted them all.

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

2) 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.

3) 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.

4) 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.

5) 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 we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just 'magically' become American citizens.

6) Only in America, could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as "extremists."

7) Only in America, could you need to present a driver's license to cash a check or buy alcoholbut not to vote.

8) 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).

9) 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.
