    The US used to be #1 in lot of things. Now the only things I can think of are war related and prison related.

    I suppose we are still #1 in the sheer size of our economy, but that's not the greatest considering where all the money is.

    How about it? Are we still #1 at anything that is worth being #1?

    The only area where I care about seeing us at or near the top would be contentment of the people.

    That's how we got into the mess we're in! And a lot of that, is a result of the "box" in the corner.

    When the citizen's of this country get pissed off enough to voice their non-violent dissent of the status quo, good things can happen:
    • The revolutionary war
    • Emancipation proclemation
    • Women's right to vote
    • Civil Rights Act
    • Ending the Vietnam War
    • Sam Kinnison
    But all those things couldn't happen in today's America, because we are also #1 in the world in "Narcissism".

    Your success is not fair to the people who can't or won't put forth the effort.

    Therefore, your success must be taken away from you.

    I'd say we're #1 in covetousness.
