Since you went into greater detail about one over the other two by a ratio of about 4 to 1, that gives away the punchline. If I cared (I don't) I could find a lot of the shoddiest things about France (a wannabe power) to throw in the mix. The constant railing against America always seems to accompany some other "lesser" country that does A thing better (at least in the argument).
Ultimately it is a great credit to America that finding isolated items here and there to find a smidgen better takes a global search. I'd still pick America overall against any other country. These little comparisons meant to denigrate actually have that opposite effect.
There's probably a better mousetrap out there too in Bombay maybe.
I find it rather pathetic that you see my preference for a more efficient model as anti-American. Wanting better for my people, while dastardly, should not face such a luddite construction as you applied.
You did not touch the economic issues - merely prattled political slogans and professed undying love for Murka. If you had insisted that I "love it or leave it," your post would have been only a tittle more vapid. I am accustomed to better.
Why not try and refute either the facts given or the conclusion drawn, rather than pretend I am attacking the nation? Would that take too much thinking?
