    America is the greatest country in the world.

    America is:

    - 27th in gender equality in the world.
    - 24th in healthy life expectancy
    - Around 25th on education (depending on subject)
    - 13th on privacy
    - 23rd on quality of overall infrastructure
    - 14th in global well-being.
    - 9th on national IQ score

    America also is:

    - 1st in having most deaths of young people
    - 1st in most preventable deaths
    - 4th in likeliness of an terrorist attack
    - 1st in military expenditures (America spends more on their military than the next 26 countries combined. 25 of whom are allies.)
    - 1st in national debt
    - 1st in having the highest carbon dioxide emission
    - 1st in most prisoners per 100,000 people

    Stop living the dream and wake up.

    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

    If we collected our war debts from each nation we helped rebuild after WWII we wouldn't be in debt, but we'd turn every other countries economy we collect from into shit. Even so, this country is good and bad. Beautiful country, but the government is run by crooks.

    China is now #1 in emissions of carbon dioxide due to their high economy. China surpasses us in 2009.

    I'm not really sure how English fits into that.

    Most Americans I know speak English as their first language. Sure English isn't our "official" language but most people I know speak it, our street signs are in English, the paper is in English ect.

    I thought it was pretty damn interesting, first episode and all. It seems to have a good story, I mean basing it off real events and all.

    That describes the situation pretty well. Especially the last line.

    Or that the computer he's on is and American invention? Because that's also not true. And if that's the case I don't see what English has to do with anything even if it is your main language, many other countries have it as their main language and speak it, and yours didn't invent it.

    So whats the point here? That america isn't #1?

    Right.......and that point is valid how? Because america isn't #1 in everything?

    Thats what makes a country #1? I don't remember any country ever being the best in EVERYTHING>
    ----------------

    I guess the hypocrisy is that someone would complain about america while using the internet and american entertainment.

    Actually I do believe your street signs are written in American, since your signs are colored red and English signs are coloured red.

    Go to central Jersey or by the border to Mexico, those street signs are definitely not in English.

    The analitacal engine does not count. As for computers that use electricity, Germany. As for program-based computers America.

    They're not politicians, they're lawyers. Politicians actually give a damn about the country they're running into the ground.

    What the fuck? When did I claim America invented English? All I did was point out the irony that he being native from The Netherlands is speaking in English about how bad America is. Do I need to explain what irony is, or can your brain process that? Yeah I know other country's speak English, but I don't believe that Netherlands has it as a main language. So you can see why I would find it ironic that he is talking shit on America in English.

    As for your "America didn't invent the computer", I don't really know what to say besides your retarded.

    I live in Jersey, never seen any sign not written in English. Besides even if they weren't written in English that's only two small portions of the us.
