We don't have a bullet train, we have medicine shortages, bridges and roads are crumbling, our school children do worse than in other countries, we have a shorter life span and higher infant mortality, we have the largest prison population in the world, high unemployment, foreclosures, poor senior and veterans' care, bankrupt cities-towns and states.
But we do sell the best damn killing machines in the world! Want a war? Want to bury some ethnic groups? Want unmatched lethality? Want to maintain and create jobs pumping these machines out? Call your friendly US weapons manufacturer or government rep.
