America is becoming a second world country!

And this, from Bloomberg, the heart of the establishment. This is scary but not surprising:

Singapore does it right, nationalize the land.

Shocking - and, yes, interesting to see in Bloomberg.

Not entirely novel, though. I recall, at the time of Hurricane Katrina, reading about how indicators of health and welfare amongst poor people in New Orleans were comparable to levels in some developing countries. Shameful. disbelief

Becoming? lol lol
It was my first though when I visited the US for the first time 12 years ago.
And it hasn't improved much 12 yrs/30+ visits further on.

I've been visiting companies which, if you'd pick 'em up and place 'em in the Netherlands, would be shut by authorities the very same day because of voilation of laws protecting employees from exploitation/bad working circumstances and/or safety&health regulations.

Infrastructure is below (northern) european standards

And your healthcare system is also poor.

one of the few occasions we can agree



US standards are WAY beyond that of other industrialized nations. though not everywhere. it's all perfect in areas where the rich ones live. can you imagine something like the Flint water fuckup happening in Beverly Hills or Downtown Manhattan? or that it took 5+ years to fix it?


the enormous gap beween the poor and rich areas is what's frightening. you expect that from let's say some communist trash countries, but the US? mindboggling

I'm quite sure that there is a substancial gap between (monetary) rich and poor in every country in the world.
Allways has been, allways will be. Competition is part of our nature. And as with any competition, there's something to gain, so you will have 'losers' and 'winners'

I'm American and concur 100 percent with your comments. It's laughable that the U.S. loves to "spread democracy" abroad while economic chaos continues here locally.

that's not the point. of course there will always be competition, rich an poor, and better access to certain services, if I can afford it, I will send my kids to private schools, be it in the US or anywhere else.

however, public services by the goverment should NOT be different. stable bridges, functional fire deparments, police service and most of all health care should not depend on income or on where you live

I thought "Spread Democracy" was always code for "Take Their Resources."

American exceptionalism is a big problem, especially when we aren't the greatest country at everything. We've got some great things about us but bullshit marketing & PR is one of the things we're best at unfortunately.
