Today, 6:53 pmA Canadian Top 10 List -- A MUST READ
A Canadian Top 10 List ----- A MUST READ
Canadian's Version of David Letterman's Top 10
Just makes you wanna shake your head in disbelief.
This is Canada's Top Ten List of America's Stupidity
Of course we look like idiots .... because we are.
Number 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.
Number 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 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!
Number 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.
Number 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.
Number 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 (probably should be number one).
Number 5 Only in America....could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as EXTREMIST'S.
Number 4 Only in America...could you need to present a driver's license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.
Number 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(Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).
Number 2 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.
And Number 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.

Krauthammer On Obama's Foreign Policy: 'The Strategy Is To Do Absolutely Nothing'

Krauthammer On Obama's Foreign Policy: 'The Strategy Is To Do Absolutely Nothing' August 28 Charles Krauthammer ripped President Obama's foreign policy Thursday on "Special Report with Bret Baier," blasting the president for holding a news conference at which he said, "we don't have a strategy yet" for dealing with ISIS in Syria. "The president of the United States, in the middle of a real crisis, a few days after the beheading of an American...gets in front of the world and says, I don't have a strategy," the syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor said. "If that is true, don't say...
August 28, 2014, 7:31 pmYou are a racist...
'm Andrew Klavan and this is the Revolting Truth.
Some of you may have noticed that our country is sharply divided along political lines. To those of you who haven't noticed: our country is sharply divided along political lines. Approximately thirty eight percent of Americans identify themselves as conservative, twenty three percent identify themselves as liberal, while the remaining thirty nine percent can't identify themselves and are waiting for a policeman to take them home.
Those who identify as conservative generally believe in limited government, low taxes and close adherence to the constitution. Those who identify as liberal generally believe that if they had a hammer, they'd hammer out justice all over the land, but since they don't, they'll just have another latte and feel good about themselves.
Can we bring these two sides closer together without using rope and a nail gun or would using rope and a nail gun actually be kind of a good time?
We here at the Revolting Truth believe that better communication is the road to better understanding which is the path to better relations which is the freeway to better homes and gardens which is the last stop before Tomorrowland.
And that's why today we'd like to present the first installment of the Leftese Dictionary - a glossary of left wing terms and their meanings which will help right wingers understand what the people who don't know what they're talking about are talking about.
Let's begin with a term Right Wingers hear a lot when chatting with Left Wingers: "You are racist!" The phrase "You are a racist!" or "That's racist," is leftese for "I have no logical arguments." As an example of how the term is used in conversation, let's say you point out that under President Obama's left wing policies, the percentage of African American families living in poverty has increased and black participation in the labor force has decreased while under right wing President Reagan black unemployment plummeted, and the income gap between blacks and whites narrowed. That's when a left winger might respond by employing the phrase, "You are racist."
Leftists have many different ways of saying "I have no logical argument," for the same reason Eskimos have many different words for snow. Another way a leftist may concede that his point of view is nonsense is by saying "I am offended." If, for instance, you point out that the poverty rate for women has increased under President Obama and that women's earnings relative to men have declined, making this a dark economic time for women, a leftist might reply, "You said the word dark. You are racist. I am offended."
One other way a leftist might have of saying, "I have no logical argument," is "the science is settled." If you point out that there is exactly zero real evidence that human actions threaten to cause catastrophic climate change, a leftist will reply, "The science is settled." When you ask him what precise scientific facts he is talking about, he is likely to say, "I am offended. You are racist."

Tim Stanley writes for The Telegraph that the White House will not be the driver behind the type of meaningful change in how the US deals with racism, inequality and violence. He says President Barack Obama has not claimed a meaningful leadership role within the country's racial narrative.
"He was never going to be someone who would confront racism head on or seek a substantial redistribution of power and money of the variety that many civil rights leaders feel is necessary to help the poor," he writes.

August 22, 2014, 12:35 pmNever Question a Drunk...
Never question a drunk
I was shopping at the local supermarket where I selected:
A half-gallon of 2% milk
A carton of eggs
A quart of orange juice
A head of lettuce
A 2 lb. Can of coffee
A 1 lb. Package of bacon
As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind me watched as I placed the items in front of the cashier. While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly Stated, 'You must be single.'
I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since I indeed had never found Mr. Right.
I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status..
Curiosity getting the better of me, I said , 'Yes you are correct. But how on earth did you know that?'
The drunk replied, 'Cause you're ugly.

Wow: Senior intelligence officer says mission to save James Foley failed because of Obama

Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer (Ret.) is a CIA-trained former senior intelligence officer and he says that the rescue operation for American journalist James Foley wasn't successful because President Obama "dragged his feet". "Thursday morning, Shaffer appeared on WMAL radio in Washington, D.C., to discuss the ISIS execution of American journalist James Foley earlier this week. He told me and co-host Brian Wilson that the recently revealed rescue attempt led by Special Forces earlier this summer failed because President Obama was slow to give the go-ahead: I'm hearing from my friends in the Pentagon, they are giving him every single option...

Police work can be entertaining as well as dangerous. Recently, a female sheriff's deputy arrested Patrick Lawrence, a 22 year old white male, who was fornicating with a pumpkin in the middle of a field at night.
The next day, at the Gwinnett County (GA) courthouse, Lawrence was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, public indecency and public intoxication. The suspect explained that he was passing a pumpkin patch on his way home from a drinking session when he decided to stop.
'You know how a pumpkin is soft and squishy inside, and there was no one around for miles, or at least I thought there was no one around' he stated. Lawrence went on to say that he pulled over to the side of the road, picked out a pumpkin that he felt was appropriate to his purpose, cut a hole in it, and proceeded to satisfy his pressing need.
'Guess I was really into it, y'know?' he commented with evident embarrassment. In the process of doing the deed, Lawrence failed to notice an approaching sheriff's car and was unaware of his audience until Deputy Brenda Taylor approached him.
'It was an unusual situation, that's for sure,' said Deputy Taylor. 'I walked up to Lawrence and he's just humping away at this pumpkin.' Deputy Taylor went on to describe what happened when she approached Lawrence ...
'I said: 'Excuse me sir, but do you realize that you're having sex with a pumpkin?'
He froze and was clearly very surprised that I was there, and then he looked me straight in the face and said:
'A pumpkin? <snip> ... is it midnight already?'
The court (and the judge) could not contain their laughter. Lawrence was found guilty only of public intoxication, fined $10. and sent on his way. The Washington Post wrote an article describing this as "The best come-back line ever."
August 12, 2014, 10:22 pmObama...
Obama is beset by problems at home and abroad. Just 40 percent of voters approve of the way he's doing his job, tying his worst mark in three years and the second worst of his presidency.
Just 39 percent approve of the way he's dealing with the economy and only 33 percent approve of how he's dealing with foreign policy, the worst of his years in office.
By 42-32 percent, voters say their opinions of Obama make them more likely to vote this fall for a Republican than for a Democrat.
And for the first time this election cycle, more people said they'd vote for a Republican than a Democrat for Congress, by 43 percent to 38 percent.
