    I am real. It's you is living in "America is awesome land." We do not have the highest upward mobility in the world. In fact France, Canada,Sweden,Germany,Norway, and Denmark all have higher upward mobility than we do. Economic mobility - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Yes it can. I don't think you or a lot of people realize just how much of an assault of freedom the Patriot Act was. USA PATRIOT Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    No, he said that I was wrong about this being the freest country in the world. His standard is being able to smoke dope, gay marriage and the patriot act.

    I could give a rat's ass about the first two and the second is a strawman.

    i mean, is that really all he has to disprove my comments?

    No, it can't. The Patriot Act only allows the un-warranted tapping of calls to and from foreign countries. Dometic to domestic calls have to have a warrant. You might want to read it, first.

    What if we had taken that attitude during WW2? "You'll just create more Nazis". Think about it.
    I'm not making excuses. I'm trying to get you to realize that you do not fight terrorism using the methods that created it. There is a huge difference between fighting a nation and fighting a concept such as terrorism. You can defeat a nation. Take over and occupy a nation that is already a source of terrorist activity and you just give rise to more resentment.

    So if call my friend in England that should be tapped? Wonderful standard you have set up for the 'freest country in the world'

    You may want to actually read your source, before you post it.

    Using the ratio of an individual’s current income to that of their parent’s, there is no academic consensus whether the United States has less or more relative mobility than other industrialized nations[1][5][6]. According to one study, the income of a person's parents is a great deal more predictive of their own income in the United States than other countries[4]. France, Germany, Sweden, Canada, Finland, Norway, and Denmark all have more relative mobility than the US, while only the United Kingdom is shown to have less mobility

    Kinda like the Russians did in Afghanistan before us.
