The Newsroom: Fucking Awesome (so far)

"And [to the conservative panelist] with a straight face, you're going to tell students that America's so star-spangled awesome that we're the only ones in the world who have freedom? Canada has freedom, Japan has freedom, the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Belgium has freedom. 207 sovereign states in the world, like 180 of them have freedom.
...there is absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we're the greatest country in the world. We're 7th in literacy,
27th in math,
22nd in science,
49th in life expectancy,
178th in infant mortality,
3rd in median household income,
number 4 in labor force,
and number 4 in exports.

We lead the world in only three categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending, where we spend more than the next twenty-six countries combined, twenty-five of whom are allies. ...o when you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world, I don't know what the fuck you're talking about?! Yosemite?!!!"
Happy 4th
