#1 at what? Incarceration rates? Per capita healthcare expenditure with very low overall returns? Alienation of the international community? At self promotion?
BTW, I have enjoyed this banter and have learned a little about the history of this country called the United States of America which somehow has assumed the name 'america'.

If you dont know by now, then thats a choice you have made, not from a
lack of information presented. If you want to know, the revisit your
education. TIP: Why is america still #1 even though we have none of
the natural resources and are no smarter than anyone else?

You dont know me very well... I would consider myself lucky if I could
spend the rest of my life travelling. Also, I wouldnt have a problem
saying good things about this country to a person who sees only the
bad. The inverse is also true, which is why you got my email.
