really count....what stats do you base that on? child birth, civil rights, age, health care ...just askin
All of those.
no , hong kong, japan, sweden all do better at live births than we do....

cuba has a higher literacy rate than the us

civil rights? we are no longer a country of free speech but a country with free speech zones

as far as age..okinawa has a better life expectancy....

health care: lol surely you are not saying the us has the best health care system? really? lol

i dont mind the rah rah but lets not lie to ourselves this country has many problems and if we dont face them...we wont solve them
The birth rate numbers are skewed as many countries don't count partial births, low birth weight and etc.

I noticed you supplied no links to support your "facts".

i have no problem discussing these issues....i dont understand why that makes me not a true america to some?

Sophomore year in college and I was drafted into the trumpet section sitting on the back row of the orchestra just left of the drum line and trombone section. The grand finale was the 1812 Overture and somebody got the bright idea to use four small cannon that normally graced the front lawn of the Administration building. Use a modest amount of powder and we could really do Tchaikovsky proud.

Oh we were glorious and were winding up to the grand finale and cannon burst normally accomplished with tympani but we were using real cannon. Our backstage crew got the timing exactly right but over estimated the powder a tad. As the cannon boomed right on cue, flames rolled up the back of the fireproof curtain and shot out across the terrified orchestra. I don't remember if we actually completed the final notes.

We did get a standing ovation though.

I can't remember where I heard this, but I think it applies. What this country needs is a good 5 cents cigar.

I've been to about 80% of the rest of the world. I know first hand from seeing with my own eyes what is good and what is not so good. America isn't perfect. There are lots of things going on right now in America that really tear at my soul BUT even with our problems I know it's the best place on earth to live.

If, as you state, it is hard to compare birth stats, how do you know we are lacking? Again, a link supporting your argument would be helpful.

I do not see them as facts as I put the word in quotes. Just because someone else does not provide links, is not much of a defense. If you want your statements accepted as facts, you should support them with links which show you did research. Otherwise they are just your opinion.

Since you support Obama you are part and parcel of any problems we have, I have a solution, MOVE your ass away.
Let's have another civil war. I'm betting the smart ones will eliminate the dumb ones.. Lets settle this "this is my country you can go elsewhere." I am so thoroughly tired of jackasses trying to tell other americans to get out. Lets get it on and see who "goes on".
