Difficult to say, internal combustion has been around since the 1300's with no clear inventor named. The modern engine using spark plugs and distributed charge for combustion is American.Internal Combustion engine: Belgian
Bell was hardly a Scot, and he was an American citizen, regardless of where he did some of his research.Telephone: Scottish guy in Canada
Bovine feces, pure fabrication on your part.Microchip: British guy
Jack Kilby of Texas Instruments created the integrated circuit. Bill Shockley of Bell Labs created the modern semi-conductor using silicone. Robert Noyce of Intel invented the microprocessor.
The Babbage analytical engine was not built until the 1990's - the first digital computer was the 1890 census calculator - in America.Television: A brit, a German, and a Scot invented the precursors, a pair of Russians invented the first television based on their work.
Computer: A brit if you count Babbage, Turing, or Flowers. A German if you go with Kuse.
Cars: a German
Light Bulbs: Americans
On that list, the US has TWO things. Hell, the first personal computer was made by Italians. We often assume things are invented by Americans, when they aren't.
The problem I have with leftists isn't what they don't know, it's that so much of what they do know, simply isn't so.
To her Wall Street owners: Hillary Clinton: But if everybody's watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. so, you need both a public and a private position. - Hillary Clinton: "I'm kind of far removed from the struggles of the Middle Class"
The bottom 10% in America live better lives than the bottom 10% in any other nation on the planet with the exceptions of Canada, Sweden, and Australia. There are 195 countries on this planet, and our bottom 10% are better off than the top 10% in all but eleven of them.
If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.

in what category? we have free speech, which is good. our health care system sucks, and we spend too much on war.Is America the greatest nation on earth?
either way, how do we judge that? standard of living? nuclear arsenal? who knows? who cares? America is a first world country that is nice to live in. when we start getting caught up in nationalism or questions of empire, though, it usually has no positive effect. **** the contest crap. just enjoy living in your country and strive to make it better.

Fundamentally, these personal electronic devices that Sony builds use technologies that were invented and developed right here in the US decades ago.
From Tube Circuits to Microprocessors to Integrated circuit technology and software. All of it was initially developed right here in the US.
And Japan perfected the modern society ?
One possible measure of "greatest" would be net immigration. How many try to get in vs try to get out. It could be argued in that context that America is indeed "greatest".
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
I've seen Europeans trying to mitigate away the Moon landings as American money funding German Rocket technology.
Well, we weren't the only Nation to abscond with German Scientist plus, Wermer Von Braun wanted to land the entire Appollo Rocket on the Moon.
It was a American Engineer who came up with the concept of a Lunar Lander and it was another American Engineer who programed the Lunar lander Computer
To compromise for the lack of onboard memory he developed a process of using interrupts which would over ride less critical functions when memory ran low.
Windows to this day uses interupts.
The Computers for the Apollo Rocket Guidance system were IBM.
