    While it is humorous, it's sad. American born citizens acting like they're from the third world. If our leaders can't see the problem with this....

    This country is a Third World country. We just haven't come to grips with it yet, just as we still think we're freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    While I agree that we are not very free any more, what is your idea of a third world country? While we aren't what we used to be I don't think we are a third world country just yet.

    Authoritarian government;
    An economically insecure middle and working class;
    Decaying infrastructure;
    Pervasive corruption/cronyism;
    Rule of law a joke... etc.

    Check out what DC, or LA, or Baltimore, or Apelanta or Chicongo look like and tell me if you see much of a difference between those places and, say, Kinshasa or Port-au-Prince.

    True, but we have good water, food and are not all at the poverty line...yet. We are probably a second world country (if that exists).

    All that is very tenuous; and the fact that we're reduced to pointing to such basics as evidence of how "good" we have it is the clearest evidence I can think of that we don't!

    Agreed. I believe that we are hanging in the balance. The only thing that separates us from a 3rd world country is the fact that we still have electricity and gas. Should someone pull the plug on that, we're dead.
