Only In America

Only in America, do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front. 

Only in America……do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke! 

Only in America……do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters. 

Only in America……do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and! put our useless junk in the garage.  

Only in America……do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight. 

Only in America……do we use the word ‘politics’ to describe the process so well: ‘Poli’ in Latin meaning ‘many’ and ‘tics’ meaning ‘bloodsucking creatures’. 

Only in America……do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

 

Now that hopefully you’ve smiled at least once, here is an only in America on a more serious note…  Only in America do Muslims get their own Holiday Season stamp, as we are still fighting in Iraq  and healing from 911…  Yet our government today can’t even dream of posting the ten commandments or the word God on federal property without being taken to court?!?  How ironic is that??  Talk about bad timing…  Hello????

 

BOYCOTT this USPS Holiday Stamp!

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
