Are We Third World Yet?

Is America officially a Third World country now?

Let me count the ways:

  • Our government's response to a natural disaster is a second disaster
  • Our presidency is either inherited, stolen in a crooked election, or both.
  • The gap between rich and poor is large and growing
  • Wealthy citizens wall themselves off in gated enclaves
  • Politically-connected businesses kickback their profits to government officials
  • Our national debt is bigger than God and will never be paid back
  • Our population is divided along tribal lines
  • Violence, especially murder, is so common the authorities seem powerless to prevent it
  • We are in a war because of the egos of our leaders
OK, I'm going to stop now. This is getting WAY too depressing....
