Independence Day is two days away. So without a doubt, the Progressives in America have to go balls to the wall to Progsplain to the rest of us knuckle dragging patriots why America sucks.
This year, The New York Times Opinion board made an entire 4 minute and 41 second video about the mediocrity of America.
The myth of America as the greatest nation on earth is at best outdated and at worst, wildly inaccurate. If you look at data, the U.S. is really just O.K. pic.twitter.com/pFrWBH0Zfl

Fuck that noise.
First of all, a couple of minor points:
There is nothing more ridiculous than the OECD rankings. The OECD is a French based organization, and has consistently been lead by non-Americans. It, like the UN and other international organizations, is biased against the United States.
So what a bunch of elitist Frenchy fucks think about us isn’t worth a wet, sloppy fart to me.
Could our high schools be better? Sure.
But where does half of the world’s scientific research come from? The United States of America, that’s where.
What does “healthcare spending” have to do with national rankings? We still have the best healthcare in the world. It’s Europeans and Canadians who come to Sloan-Kettering or the Mayo Clinic when they want to not die of cancer waiting in line for their turn for treatment on their national healthcare systems.
For that matter, what has fucked the cost of our healthcare system sideways is those God damned Progressives trying to turn America into Europe. The more government they put into healthcare, the worse it is, not the better.
The fact is comparing our poverty rate or infant mortality rate (which is only higher by fractions of a percent) is the result of America being the largest and most diverse of the nations in the OECD. We have 330 Million people of every race and ethnicity on the planet.
Comparing us to anywhere is apples and oranges. It is easy for a small, ethnically and culturally homogeneous country to be relatively equally prosperous. If you compare America to other more diverse nations, we stand head and shoulders above the rest.
Compare America to Paris or Malmo or London, where their new found lack of homogeneity and lack of integration has turned those areas into open are sewers where they are constantly stabbing or throwing battery acid at each other.
Speaking of stabbings and acid throwing, how come that was never mentioned along side our rate gun violence?
What really tears it for me was the “but we have freedom in America and everyone’s jealous or something.”
Not everyone is jealous. There are people, lots of people, who would and have traded their freedoms for government micromanagement of their lives that comes with free government shit.
These people are called Europeans, and in the United States they are called Liberals or Progressives.
That is what The New York Times wants and when they care about the OECD ranking and sneer at America.
They want a nation were we all pay 50% or more in taxes and bureaucrats tell us what we can buy, and do, and how to live, but in exchange we get free college and healthcare.
That’s Europe. Where if you want to start your own business, it’s almost impossible, sharing a meme on Facebook will get your thrown in jail, and you get more time in prison for punching the guy that tries to stab you and steal your moped than does the guy who tries to stab you and steal your moped.
There is a quote by Samuel Adams the perfectly sums up the difference between Americans like you regular readers of this blog and I, and Europeans and The New York Times Opinion staff.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
I prefer liberty and the animating contest of freedom. I will accept the risk of failure pitted against the glory of overwhelming success.
They prefer to live lives of bureaucratic servitude in exchange for government handouts, essentially reduced to human livestock.
Frankly, The New York Times Opinion editors can go from us in peace. I am happy to forget they are my countrymen.
And if they don’t shut the fuck up on the 4th of July, I am happy to roast hotdogs and marshmallows over a bonfire of The New York Times building.

Yeah, we’re just an OK country, but when it comes down to the dirty work of putting the goblins of the world back in their place. Who ‘ya gonna call? Not the French, the Swedes, or the Danes. Maybe the Germans, but then who wants to invite armed Germans into their country without the USA holding their leash. Too many folks learned that lesson the hard way.
You mentioned infant mortality rates and said ours is higher than Europe’s. True, but the comparison is apples to oranges. In the U.S., if a baby is born, takes one breath, and dies, it’s counted in the infant mortality statistics. But in the rest of the Western world (Western Europe, mainly), if the child dies within 24 hours of birth it’s counted as a stillbirth, and in at least one country (it’s been several years since I read this, so I don’t remember which one) if the baby is born under a certain weight it’s called a stillbirth and left to die, rather than making heroic efforts to save it (at great cost), as is done in the U.S.. Since most infant deaths are of premature, grossly underweight babies, along with those with non-survivable birth defects, and occur within 24 hours of birth, the U.S. takes it in the shorts by reporting honestly (as usual). If the rates were all measured the same, it’s a safe bet the U.S. rate would be among the lowest in the world.
Similar to educational results, we test all of our students and report the results, while countries like China test only their best schools to tilt their statistical results in international rankings, similar things go on with European criminal statistics.
I realize “bone fire” was probably a typo, but I get the warm & fuzzies thinking of the staff of the NYT actually being useful.
I just looked at a map. Haiti practically touches the socialist paradise of Cuba, yet when they make their boats out of milk bottles and car bodies, they sail hundreds of miles to get here. Why do you suppose that is?
About The New York Times- Remember it was Stalins Chief western apologist in the 1930’s. Nothing has changed except the size of the paper.
Thumbs up on this one.
