USA slips away.............

Those socialist Scandanavians have been coming out on top of all kinds of surveys, besting the late great USA in economics, quality of life, environment, personal freedom,education and healthcare. Now comes another one with the news that we have slipped again.......
US no longer technology king.
Where will it all end? At the bottom?
Will we ever live up to the image we have painted of ourselves, or is it too late?
Sure would be nice to be the best at something other than war........
oooooops, I forgot we're losing.
Well we still lead the world in weapons exports and scrap iron! Whoooohooooo!

And we have Tina Turner and you cant top that!
Steamy windows!

A country needs to invest in it's people, not special intrests (ie: exxon, halliburton...) to grow, advance and prosper. It was taken over 200 years to make us a great country and less than eight to divide us and land us, face first, in dept and poverty. Shameful!

Good point Ziem, but really this division we're seeing right now actually started in the 60's because of the Warren Supreme Court's actions concerning equal rights , and was further exasperated by Nixon's removal from office. The neocons have never forgiven the liberal left for that. Going even farther back 100 years or more was the origins of the workers struggles against the industrialists.

Yeah, yeah - you're right. We are number one in anything that destroys. So there, you Scandahoovians! At this moment, we prolly have the stupidest politicinas as well. Thanks Diesel.

I was called a quiche eating, pot head liberal. Of course that was by a clueless neocon. Thus, I can see your point. Liberals of today, in the eyes of the right, see us as the flower children of the 60's. They are so wrapped up in that image, they can't see the truth or what we stand for.

Well, as a matter of fact I am a flower child of the 60s and tough too toos if they don't like it. I've been called lots of things and you know what? After they're done with their namecalling, they don't have anything left. That's it, that's all they've got in their debating arsennal. No facts, no truth, no nuthin!

You're absolutely right Paul, they have nothing. You did leave out compassion, common sense, a mind of their own...

My aunt was a flower child of the 60's. I was a mini version and damn proud of it! ;o)

Actually, we don't have Tina Turner anymore. She lives in France now and considers herself an ex-pat.

Yes, you know, the Swedes have it all over us. We are like the scenario in the Rise and Fall of the Roamn Empire, going down if we don't wake up.
