"The USA is #1.... in all the wrong categories"

Yes, the USA leads the world in many categories, like:
When you look at the world’s developed nations, this country now ranks worst in many troubling ways: number of people without health insurance, number of people in jail, rates of divorce, bankruptcy and suicide, amount of trash produced per capita, consumption of pornography, polarization of wealth, number of homeless children, percent of the population in poverty, contribution to climate change, on and on.
We also lead the world in military spending and war mongering and pay dearly for this ranking.

Our country is falling apart with the infrastructure in some places resembling 3rd world nations. Schools needing to be remodeled or new ones built won't happen, because we're too busy killing Arabs and Muslims for Wall Street and Israel. And that takes money, lots and lots of money.

Families are falling apart because of the strain of Mom and Dad both working at least one job or more. Who's going to raise the children? Some underpaid high school dropout working for minimum wage in some factory like child warehouse?

And there's more:
Quite apart from the prolonged wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and in addition to the troubled economy, this nation is losing its quality of life and shared sense of purpose. One result is a level of need that has become staggering: 40 million people in poverty, 47 million people without health insurance, 3.5 million people homeless each year, more than one million bankruptcies a year. Another result is a sense of disconnection that people feel — distress, anxiety, and prolonged belief that the country is headed in the wrong direction.
Not to worry, though. NASCAR's in full swing; football will soon arrive and there's a sale on Bud Light at WalMart. Might as well pick up your Prozac prescription while visiting Wally World.

'Anti-Islamic' bus ads appear in major cities

A group called 'Stop Islamization of America' is promoting ads on major city public transportation that urge people to leave the Muslim faith. The anti-Islamic campaign is sparking thought about the religion's place in American society.
