20 Not So Good Categories That The United States Leads The World In

Number One? 20 Not So Good Categories That The United States Leads The World In


1 The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world and the largest total prison population on the entire globe.

#2 According to NationMaster.com, the United States has the highest percentage of obese people in the world.

#3 The United States has the highest divorce rate on the globe by a wide margin.

#4 The United States is tied with the U.K. for the most hours of television watched per person each week.

#5 The United States has the highest rate of illegal drug use on the entire planet.

#6 There are more car thefts in the United States each year than anywhere else in the world by far.

#7 There are more reported rapes in the United States each year than somewhere else in the world.

#8 There are more reported murders in the United States each year than anywhere else in the world.
#9 There are more total crimes in the United States each year than somewhere else in the world.

#10 The United States also has more police officers than anywhere else in the world.

#11 The United States spends much more on health care as a percentage of GDP than any other nation on the face of the earth.

#12 The United States has more people on pharmaceutical drugs than any other country on the planet.

#13 The percentage of women taking antidepressants in America is higher than in any other country in the world.

#14 Americans have more student loan debt than anyone else in the world.

#15 More pornography is created in the United States than anywhere else on the entire globe.  89 percent is made in the U.S.A. and only 11 percent is made in the rest of the world.

#16 The United States has the most massive trade deficit in the world every single year.  Between December 2000 and December 2010, the United States ran a total trade deficit of 6.1 trillion dollars with the rest of the world, and the U.S. has had a negative trade balance every single year since 1976.

#17 The United States spends 7 times more on the military than any other nation on the planet does.  In fact, U.S. military spending is higher than the military spending of China, Russia, Japan, India, and the rest of NATO combined.

#18 The United States has far more foreign military bases than any other country does.

#19 The United States has the most complicated tax system in the entire world.

#20 The U.S. has accumulated the most significant national debt that the world has ever seen and it is rapidly getting worse.  Right now, U.S. government debt is expanding at a rate of $40,000 per second.

So are you convinced that we are in trouble yet?
The truth is that America has changed.  Most of us don’t even say hello to our neighbours anymore.

In fact, we have become so self-involved that many of us don’t even notice when someone around us dies.
Just consider the following two examples.

*USA Today recently reported on the body of a dead woman that was not found for approximately a year even though a whole bunch of people walked right past the car where she died….

If we ever want to turn this country around, we need to be very honest with ourselves.  We need to take a long, hard look in the mirror and realise that it is not a good thing that we are number one in divorce, drug addiction, debt, obesity, car thefts, murders and total crimes.  We have become a slothful, greedy, decadent nation that is exhibiting signs of advanced decay.  Until we understand just how severe our problems really are, we won’t be able to come up with the solutions that we need.

The Jewish people Were not The Primary Victims of The Holocaust



The American Media Corporation own by Jews has been telling American's since 1945 that Jew's were the primary victims. 





Most of the larger independent newspapers are owned by Jewish interests as well. An example is media mogul is Samuel I. "Si" Newhouse, who owns two dozen daily newspapers from Staten Island to Oregon, plus the Sunday supplement Parade; the Conde Nast collection of magazines, including Vogue, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Allure, GQ, and Self; the publishing firms of Random House, Knopf, Crown, and Ballantine, among other imprints; and cable franchises with over one million subscribers."
 
I could add that Michael Eisner could depart Disney tomorrow but the company will remain in the hands of Shamrock Holdings, whose principal office is now located in Israel".


Estimates of Non-Combatant Lives Lost During the Holocaust

Ukrainians                     5.5 - 7 million
Jews (of all countries)   6 million + 
Russian POW's              3.3 million +
Russian Civilians           2 million + 
Poles                              3 million + 
Yugoslavians                 1.5 million +
Gypsies                      200,000 - 500,000 
Mentally/Physically Disabled  
                                   70,000- 250,000
Homosexuals         10's of thousands 
(Term used before Political Correctness)
Spanish Republican 10's of thousands 
Jehovah's Witnesses      2,500 - 5,000
10's of thousands of Boy and Girl Scouts, Clergy, Communists, Czechs, Deportees, Greeks, Political Prisoners, Other POW's, Resistance Fighters, Serbs, Socialists, Trade Unionists, Others.

When I read a post on Facebook “Millions of Muslim women are forced to cover up

When I read a post on Facebook “Millions of Muslim women are forced to cover up with a head garment called a hijab?” (That is False) American Women that are known to like showing more skin than Muslims is responsible for spreading propaganda? And American’s are so dumping about America they are going to tell others about the Muslim culture?
The beginning of Islam started around 610 CE. However, America has been around since 1776, so it’s obvious we Americans know more than other people in the world since we have been about 240 Years?

Critics of the Muslim veiling tradition argue that women do not wear the veil by choice, and they are often forced to cover their heads and bodies. In contrast, many daughters of Muslim immigrants in the West argue that the veil symbolises devotion and piety and that ceiling is their own choice. To them, it is a question of religious identity and self-expression.

Muslims are not a race. The word “Muslim” itself connects to followers of Islam, a world religion — not a “race.
The whole stereotype that all Muslims are forced to dress like this is entirely false. Some Muslim women do not choose to cover up, and this is their decision. There are, however, many successful Muslim women who do cover up and have managed to become absolutely fantastic in their fields and still maintain the modesty that they chose to uphold.

Q: Why do you dress the way you do?
A: First and foremost, because Allah commands us to do so. In the Qur’an, Allah tells the believers to “lower their gaze and be modest.” Specifically, it says: “Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that will make for greater purity for them, and Allah is well acquainted with all that they do. And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; and that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what must ordinarily appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their chests and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers…” [continuing list of family members and others in front of whom women are exempt from covering] (Qur’an 24:30-31)

And I know that Americans have the knowledge of a “Pet Rock”, and just as hard will still wave the American Flag and say “We are the greatest country on earth?”
However, Understand they have a serious mental condition and want to continue to live in a constant state of denial?

So, let’s take time to do our own inventory rather than other Countries

I am Happy, Sergeant Bergdahl will receive his back pay

As a Veteran I am Happy, Sergeant Bergdahl will receive back pay for his service in the Middle East since our invasions and bombings since 1980 a war based on lies.

Sergeant Bergdahl making Sergeant in 1 Year before being captured, Not Bad. He was willing to sacrifice his life for his Country even in a false flag war that we have not won in 15 Years killing millions of civilians and scattering Al Qaeda and ISIS around the Globe and coming to America? And the devastating we caused to homes an the infrastructure American’s have no idea and do not care? I find it interesting American’s are texting “God Bless America” “Christ is our saviour” and Hundreds of Bible passages, however, I have failed to see any of forgiveness? Close to 22 Veterans are killing themselves. “New VA study finds 20 veterans commit suicide each day” 2016 Military Times. Many Sergeant Bergdahl age. Are they cowards because they could not take it anymore? Should we Change there Discharge to dishonourable and take away or have families pay the money back. Let’s do what the American’s are doing too Sergeant Bergdahl and show their pictures in the media and disgrace them? As a retired Certified Licensed Clinical Therapist working in Mental Health, I will share my expertise with those that give a rats ass. No one in the Media mentioned anything about Sergeant Bergdahl Mental State? Why, because we Americans prefer to crucify rather than justify or forgive? What do these Salem Witch mentalities demanding blood think thought he was taking a walk-in-park?

Nowhere else in the world has such barbarity and cruelty as in Afghanistan. A man can be beaten so much, such a pulp of skin and blood, that it was impossible to tell whether he had clothes on or not. Every time he fell unconscious, they rubbed salt into his wounds to make him scream. Many prisoners have jaw and mouth locks in an open position so the men can take turns Ejaculating or Urinate in the prisoner's open mouth. And, groups of men Sodomizing prisoners. American corporate media leave those details out and could cut down on enlistments. Women tell you how terrible rape is, how do you think a man feels after being raped. You notice men do not go on TV as a whole to talk about it. However, the majority of women do not even think it happens or cares. Ask any American women if they know the colour of the ribbon for men with Penile Cancer? How many fundraisers have you seen for men that have Testicle and Penile cancer? Do you think a man's penis is as important as a woman’s Breast? With all due respect when you're out with your pitchforks and torches looking for someone to condemn I would suggest you leave God/ Christ out of the conversation.


20 Veterans Commit Suicide Each Day

Do the Math Global War on terror has Killed 4 million Muslims or More! 

WASHINGTON — A study released earlier this year revealed the shocking death toll of the United States’s “War on Terror” since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but the true body count could be even higher.

Got Milk? Forget Milk Pray You Got Water?

 The Bush Family Dynasty

George Bush Bought Nearly 300,000 by one report acres 98,000 by other reports in Paraguay when things were prosperous 2005 and 2007.
It's called Blue gold and Bush bought the rights to a veritable ocean of fresh, clear-as-glass, Grade A water.
His land rests atop one of the largest freshwater aquifers in the world: Acuifero Guarani, by name.

 “Acuifero Guarani covers roughly 460,000 square miles under parts of Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina. It is estimated to contain about 8,900 cubic miles of water.”
If you can’t quite imagine 8,900 miles of water, picture a pool nearly three times the size of California. That should give you a decent idea.
A fair amount when you consider that 98% of this planet’s water is saltwater.

87% of the water is trapped within glaciers, only 0.25% of the water on this cosmic ball is fresh (underground, or in rivers and lakes). Just a drop in the figurative bucket
If current usage trends don't change, the world will have only 60 percent of the water it needs in 2030, it said.
If current usage trends don't change.

NestlĂ© CEO On Bottling Water In California: ‘If I Could Increase It, I Would’

NASA data from Jan. 17 showed California's backup groundwater 
reserves to be so depleted that the losses could be detected from 
satellites 400 kilometers above the earth's surface.

Water: 
human right or Because the stakes are so high -- water is perhaps the single most critical factor to sustaining human life, and no part of our economy can function without it -- the discourse around this issue has reached a fever pitch. Many people view the whole matter in moral terms: water is an essential human right, and so any attempt to commoditize it is fundamentally wrong.

The American Voters Are Like Sheep Being Led By Shepherds Of Evil And Do Not Know It?




Remember when we were children and the teacher would catch two kids fighting, and each child would blame each other and take no irresponsibility? Welcome to Congress. First, I would like to say I'm a proud non-partisan that does a thorough background check on each Political Candidate running for office in Congress and the Oval Office. I also check the family history as that old saying the apple does not fall from the tree. You know that adage "a picture is worth a thousand words" And to give a perfect example here is a picture of one family that had two presidents and one Senator.


Here is a true story for all you Bush Supporters:

It's important to note that all the Americans voters rely on Corporate American Media to make decisions. The purpose is to control the people with misinformation, no information, and Government and Corporate propaganda. How many of you read all the information on this evil family in American Media? (None) Then you have the die hard partisan that votes right down his party lines? What the voters do not realise or what to accept is they share in the death and maiming of Tens of Thousands of Civilian lives and thousands of American live by their ignorance and laziness to seek facts and information on all political candidates? They do not know that all the military interventions around the globe since WWII created, instigated, manipulated by those behind the powers such as World Banks, including The Bilderberg Group. President Roosevelt and some advisors knew that Japan was going to strike Pearl Habor and did not order our fleet out of harm's way. They provoked Japan, by cutting off all oil supplies. Our leaders wanted to control Japans Location with American Military towards their global domination.Also, before dropping the first nuclear bomb on humans in Japan Officials knew that the Emporer of Japan was going to surrender, however, the politicians wanted to test their new toy and to show Russian that they had a bigger and more powerful Penis than them. 
They told The American people that they were the only military targets? That was a lie, but the American people choose to live in a denial because if they knew the truth, the would have to accept responsibility, so, as always since the genocide of the Native American Indian until today the American Voters chooses to live in a steady state of denial? The Truth is that Our Government and the top brace at the Pentagon picked the wealthiest and most educated areas because they believed that the Japanese victims that did survive could convince the less educated and poorer citizens to surrender. Over 400,000 Japenese civilians of all ages were the victims to be incinerated alive. Also, there was over a hundred Americans that suffered the same ghastly death. The lucky people died instantly rather than to suffer waiting for the Radiation to kill them slowly? And for good measure, our Military Fire Bombed Tokyo with over a 100 Bombers for three days. The Victims were mostly school age children and infants at home made out of wood and paper that burns fast and hot. Next time you roast marshmallows over a fire let it catch fire until covered in black and this is what humans looked like that were close to the blast. Do I think my White American brothers and sisters Care? They have not cared for nonwhite skinned people since the pilgrims landed and took black slaves and killed Native American Indians. However, you love that version you were taught that the Pilgrims sat down and ate turkey and corn with the Indians. It's popular in school and church plays still today. Hell, we Celebrate Christopher Columbus discovering America when he did not, and what is worse has he committed genocide on Native Indians and enslaved Blacks. However, that's ok because us white American's carried on his evil deeds.


While we are on the subject of Black people, here is some information you never knew or most likely did not care to know?

Not Free at Last for Afro-Americans but now Enslaved by White Man's Laws & Social-Economical Oppression




Not only did slaves build the White House, they built just about everything else in this country-FREE OF CHARGE! Karen Jones saved to kyj 








Yes, ISIS Burned a Man Alive: White Americans Did the Same Thing to Black People by the Thousands

This account of the horrific murder of Sam Hose by White Americans is an even more grotesque and exaggerated version of the cruelty visited upon Muadh Al Kasasbeh by ISIS:
The white-owned newspapers of the South had long filled themselves with exaggerated or fabricated accounts of such violence. In the papers' version, the fight between Sam Hose and his boss became transformed into the most engaging crime of all: the rape of the white man's wife.
White Georgians tracked Hose down and prepared for his lynching. Two thousand people gathered for the killing, some taking a special excursion train from Atlanta for the purpose. The leaders of the lynching stripped Hose, chained him to a tree, stacked wood around him, and soaked everything in kerosene. The mob cut off Hose's ears, fingers, and genitals; they peeled the skin from his face. They watched, a newspaper reported, ''with unfeigned satisfaction'' as the man's veins ruptured from the heat and his blood boiled in flames.
''Oh, my God! Oh, Jesus,'' were the only words Hose could manage. When he finally died, the crowd cut his heart and liver from his body, sharing the pieces among themselves, selling fragments of bone and tissue to those unable to attend. No one wore a disguise or punished.




America's rhetorical condemning words of this horrible acts by Muslims. Saying it was viciousness, barbarity, horrific, savage killing amazes me, considering that the White Christian American's justified burning hundreds of thousands of civilians alive, that mostly consisted of mothers, mothers to be, their children, Including infants, adolescents, and teenagers.  Also, 245 Americans were also cremated alive and not gassed before as Adolf Hitler did to 6 Million Jews and 5 Million Non-Jews.


"African Americans are incarcerated at nearly six times the rate of whites"

"Together, African American and Hispanics comprised 58% of all prisoners in 2008, even though African Americans and Hispanics make up approximately one-quarter of the US population According to Unlocking America if African American and Hispanics were incarcerated at the same rates of whites, today’s prison and jail populations would decline by approximately 50%.                                                                                
One in six black men had been incarcerated as of 2001. If current trends continue, one in three black males born today can expect to spend time in prison during his lifetime
1 in 100 African American women are in prison
Nationwide, African-Americans represent 26% of juvenile arrests, 44% of youth who are detained, 46% of the youth who are judicially waived to criminal court, and 58% of the youth admitted to state prisons (Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice).
Drug Sentencing Disparities

About 14 million Whites and 2.6 million African Americans report using an illicit drug
5 times as many Whites are using drugs as African Americans, yet African Americans are sent to prison for drug offences at 10 times the rate of Whites
African Americans represent 12% of the total population of drug users, but 38% of those arrested for drug offences, and 59% of those in state prison for a drug offence.
African Americans serve virtually as much time in prison for a drug offence (58.7 months) as whites do for a violent offence (61.7 months). (Sentencing Project)"









The United States puts more people behind bars than any other country, five times as many per capita compared with Britain or Spain.
It wasn't always like this. Half a century ago, relatively few people were locked up, and those inmates generally served short sentences. But 40 years ago, New York passed strict sentencing guidelines known as the "Rockefeller drug laws" — after their champion, Gov. Nelson Rockefeller — that put even low-level criminals behind bars for decades.Those tough-on-crime policies became the new normal across the country. But a new debate is under way over the effectiveness of tough sentencing laws.
Picture Credit New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller had been a champion of drug rehabilitation, job training and housing. Then, he did a dramatic about-face and backed strict sentences for low-level criminals.

Bill Clinton admits his crime law made mass incarceration ‘worse’
07/15/15 02:12 PM—UPDATED 07/15/15 08:21 PM
By Eric Levitz
One day after President Obama decried mass incarceration in a speech before the NAACP convention, Bill Clinton owned up to his role in expanding the population of America’s prisons.
“Yesterday, the president spoke a long time and very well on criminal justice reform,” the former president said. “But I want to say a few words about it. Because I signed a bill that made the problem worse and I want to admit it.”
In 1994, President Clinton signed the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which offered states billions in funding for new prisons – but only if they adopted “truth in sentencing laws” that would reduce prisoners’ eligibility for parole. The law also established mandatory life sentences for people convicted of a third violent felony, among other punitive measures. By the end of the Clinton presidency, the number of people in America’s prisons rose by nearly 60%, according to the Brennan Center for Justice.



The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) reports 2.2 million people are in our nation’s jails and prisons and another 4.5 million people are on probation or parole in the U.S., totalling 6.8 million people, one of every 35 adults. We are far and away the world leader in putting our own people in jail. Most of the people inside are poor and Black. Here are 40 reasons why.

Jailing Americans for Profit: The Rise of the Prison Industrial Complex

 04/10/2012 06:51 pm ET | Updated Jun 10, 2012

John W. Whitehead 
Attorney, President of The Rutherford Institute, and author of ‘Battlefield America’


“Mass incarceration on a scale almost unexampled in human history is a fundamental fact of our country today — perhaps the fundamental fact, as slavery was the fundamental fact of 1850. In truth, there are more black men in the grip of the criminal-justice system — in prison, on probation, or on parole — than were in slavery then. Overall, there are now more people under ‘correctional supervision’ in America — more than six million — than were in the Gulag Archipelago under Stalin at its height.” — Adam Gopnik, “The Caging of America.“
In an age when freedom is fast becoming the exception rather than the rule, imprisoning Americans in private prisons run by mega-corporations has turned into a cash cow for big business. At one time, the American penal system operated under the idea that dangerous criminals needed to be put under lock and key to protect society. Today, as states attempt to save money by outsourcing prisons to private corporations, the flawed yet retributive American “system of justice” is being replaced by an even more flawed and insidious form of mass punishment based upon profit and expediency.

As author Adam Gopnik reports for the New Yorker:

Portugal decriminalised the use of all drugs in 2001. Weed, cocaine, heroin, you name it —

 Portugal decided to treat possession and use of small quantities of these drugs as a public health issue, not a criminal one. The drugs were still illegal, of course. But now getting caught with them meant a small fine and maybe a referral to a treatment program — not jail time and a criminal record. Among Portuguese adults, there are 3 drug overdose deaths for every 1,000,000 citizens. Comparable numbers in other countries range from 10.2 per million in the Netherlands to 44.6 per million in the UK, all the way up to 126.8 per million in Estonia. The EU average is 17.3 per million. 

(Estimated Drug-Induced Mortality in the US, 2014, by Gender and Race/Ethnicity) "In People with mental health disorders are at increased risk for heavy ..... mortality rate of between 22.3 and 54.0 deaths per million population aged 15-64.

Perhaps more significantly, the report notes that the use of "legal highs" – like so-called "synthetic" marijuana, "bath salts" and the like – is lower in Portugal than in any of the other countries for which reliable data exists. This makes a lot of intuitive sense: why bother with fake weed or dangerous designer drugs when you can get the real stuff? This is arguably a positive development for public health in the sense that many of the designer drugs that people develop to skirt existing drug laws have terrible and often deadly side effects.



Capital punishment in Portugal

Portugal was a pioneer in the process of abolishment, of the capital punishment. No executions have been carried out since 1846

The Guardian is a British national daily newspaper, known from 1821 to 1959 as the Manchester Guardian. Along with its sister papers The Observer and The Guardian Weekly, The Guardian is part of the Guardian Media Group, owned by The Scott Trust Limited. The Trust was created in 1936 "to secure the financial and editorial independence of The Guardian in perpetuity and to safeguard the journalistic freedom and liberal values of The Guardian free from commercial or political interference." The Scott Trust became a limited company in 2008, with a constitution to maintain the same protections for The Guardian. Profits are reinvested in journalism rather than to the benefit of an owner or shareholders.[2]
The Guardian is edited by Katharine Viner, who succeeded Alan Rusbridger in 2015.[3][4] In 2013, The Guardian's print edition had an average daily circulation of roughly 189,000 copies in the country, behind The Daily Telegraph and The Times, and ahead of The Independent.[5] The newspaper has a UK online edition as well as two international websites, Guardian Australia (founded in 2013) and Guardian US (established in 2011). The newspaper's online edition was the fifth most widely read in the world in October 2014, with over 42.6 million readers.[6] It's mixed print, and online editions reach nearly 9 million British users.[7]
Notable scoops include the 2011 News International phone hacking scandal, in particular, the hacking of murdered English teenager Milly Dowler's phone.[8] The investigation led to the closure of the UK's biggest selling Sunday newspaper, and one of the highest circulation newspapers in the world, the News of the World.[9] The newspaper also released news of the secret collection of Verizon telephone records held by US President Barack Obama's administration in June 2013,[10] and subsequently revealed the existence of the PRISM surveillance program after it was leaked to the paper by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.[11] In 2016, it led the investigation into the Panama Papers, exposing the then British Prime Minister David Cameron's links to offshore bank accounts.
The Guardian has been named Newspaper of the Year four times at the annual British Press Awards, the most recent in 2014 for reporting on government surveillance.[12] The paper is still occasionally referred to by its nickname of The Grauniad, given originally for the purported frequency of its typographical errors.[13]
If you had a choice in the news, would you choose the one that made typographical errors but was honest? Or do you prefer the American Meda that has few typographical errors?
