Silly Americans

I have to belly laugh at Americans. They brag they are the richest nation on earth, yet they close their schools one day a week claiming they can’t afford to keep them open 5 days a week. One town fired its entire police force. Yet they believe they can afford to subsidise the most profitable corporations in the history of the planet, e.g. BP and let them run rampant over the environment. Simultaneously, they believe can afford the luxury of excusing corporations and billionaires from paying any taxes at all. They believe they can afford to pay more than twice what any other citizens in the developed world do for the worst quality health care in the developed world (on par with Cuba). Republicans have Americans utterly blind to how much better and cheaper health care is everywhere but America and how easy it is to bring costs down and quality up. They have fired meat inspectors so that can die of Listeria. The whole country should be featured in a Jackass video and be given a Darwin award.
