It's systemic. For some reason, our people [America] are stuck in WE'RE NUMBER 1!!! mode from birth even and especially in the face of opposing proof.

We're not number 1 on:

  • Education
  • Health care
  • National security
  • Government representation
  • Standard of living
  • Job security
  • Technology
  • General manufacturing
  • Research
  • Law enforcement
  • Religious tolerence
  • Vacation time

...any number of things eveybody likes. But for some reason, the WE'RE NUMBER 1!! mentality allows us bully other countries while ignoring our own problems.
