Charity begins at home, and justice begins next door.

    The media and liberals tend to portray Americans as selfish Scrooges, only interested in their own gain – why else would taxes be unpopular? But America has shown its generosity time and again, and this Christmas season, new proof of it has emerged. A report from the Charities Aid Foundation America, the World Giving Index 2011, finds that the United States is the most generous country in the world.

    The World Giving Index 2011 measures generosity on three levels: giving money as a percentage of income, giving time, and helping strangers. Only the United States ranked in the top 10 nations of the world in each category. Charities Aid Foundation director Richard Harrison praised American charitable giving: “This research confirms that when we look at giving in a rounded way, including the extent to which we volunteer and help strangers, America is the most generous country in the world. America is the only country that ranks in the top ten globally on each of these three perspectives, and this first place ranking should be seen as source of real pride for people across America.”

      Apparently, the “forced charity” of government social programs, fueled by higher taxes, is the only worthwhile form of charity, according to liberals. This is one explanation for the consistent media gripe that Americans are not generous, despite the mountain of evidence that suggests otherwise.

    You know how the liberal media is always talking about how greeeeeeeeeeeeeeedy Americans are? Especially the ones that want to keep more of their hard-earned money and all. The source article even gives examples of how these media jackwagons would LIKE to portray Americans.

    As it turns out, though, they’re lying sacks of monkey crap. I know you’re shocked.

    Ah, those social justice progressives would like to give the impression that Americans are not rising to the occasion of helping the less fortunate so that they can give a good, albeit false, reason for their desire to implement guvment programs.
