USA Are Not Number One

by Robin Bal

Fortune Watch (November 03 2008)

What is it that prevents America from righting herself? Stupid, blind, unthinking patriotism – willful idiots yelling “We’re number one!” while ignoring all evidence to the contrary.

That Americas now have shorter lives than Bosnians, that our democracy is only slightly better than the Czech Republic’s, that we have more people in prison per capita than any other country in the world, and that a child born in Slovakia is more likely to survive than in America is pathetic.

Sources used for the above are from wikipedia.org.
