    Damn two minutes? I thought my happiness was golden with only a minute and a half.

    I pretty much agree with everything else.
    median household income is 49k per year.

    ASIAN POWER!!

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Money doesn't buy happiness, but poverty does cause unhappiness.


    Liberals think that we should work to reduce suffering in our society. This is scientific vindication that taxing the rich and providing safety nets to mitigate the effects of poverty will achieve that result.

    The majority of Americans make less than $75k so they will never see that standard at all. I don't know why they even call it "standard of living" when the majority are not even at that level. It's more like the affluent standard of living, and everyone else is left chasing it.

    The thing I garner the most from this report is that we don't need to live in a society where you require so much money to live well, yet we have chosen to make it a two-tier system. Everyone could be cared for and live well if we had different spending priorities from top to bottom. It's sad really.

    Our society has become so greed driven.
