Today's newspaper made some interesting points for a mainstream tabloid, in an article named 'Is This the Death of America' the editor states;
"With TV providing a ceaseless backdrop of the countries failings-a crippled and tone-deaf president, a negligent government, corruption, military atrocities, soaring debt, racial conflict, poverty, bloated bodies in floodwater, people dying on camera for want of food, water and medicine-it seems things were falling apart in the land where happiness is promoted in the constitution...."
it goes on to say;
"America which has the world costliest health care, had it turned out- higher infant mortality rates than broke and despised Cuba..."
"Americans are the planets biggest flag wavers.They are reared on conceit that theirs is the worlds best and most enviable country, born only the day before yesterday but a model society with freedom opportunity and prosperity not found they think in older cultures....."
"Some 46 million cant afford health insurance, 18,000 of whom will die early because of it...."
"The US is 43rd in the world infant mortality rankings. A baby born in Beijing has nearly three times the chance of reaching its 1st birthday than a baby born in washington...."
"The war, seen as unwinnable, is becoming a bleak burden, with nearly 2,000 American dead...."
"The war costs $6 billion a month...."
"In five years the war will have cost each American family $11,300, it is said...."
