OMG, i am not bragging i am simply saying good things about my country since you said another poster was brainwarshed for saying about 2 things good about america. Yes i understand countries are far ahead of us in categories but the categories i mentioned they are not. Dude are you on like a different planet i never said i have lived and worked in other countries.

Cali rather than repeat myself from another thread what I am trying to say is on this thread:

Why is it cool to bash Americans ?


I didn't mean you personally I meant it as you the collective or people. In order to judge another country, state or city one has to have first hand knowledge to be accurate.

We also have poverty here in Australia 2.2 million that is 11% of the population live in poverty. Maybe a different kind poverty to that of some countries but never the less poverty just the same.
I would see France as the best place to be born in to. especially in the country.

It really comes down to how you difine "Poverty". In Australia a couple with two children, who rent are considerd to be living in poverty if their houshold income is less than $910 AUD a week, which is very close to US $50,000 a year.

Obviously most of the worlds poor, could not even imagine earning that sort of money.

about 15% of people live below the poverty line in america and little larger then Australia but then again America has 300million people.
