Man you guys make this too easy. Always try to switch the burden of proof/ claims. In order that you don't have to supply proof to your claims.


What I will make a assumption, that you still cannot prove your claims about the US educational ranking. I bet the next person you're going to quote is John Kerry? Rotf

Well in a country that lets creationism be taught as if it were a real science you reap what you sow as they say.

I have seen so many bleeding heart liberal's on here that would not lift a hand to help another person. I'm proud to say I look out for people whenever I can.


Among the amazing things that you feel make our nation great, you listed earlier: food stamps, unemployment benefits, section 8, and welfare. "Bleeding heart liberals" are constantly under attack for being the only ones defending those safety nets.


Wrong again. But I admire your attempts to switch the subject in which you are so woefully ill informed on.

They are not my stats, just stats that are being reported.
You have every right to disagree with them and call them just random stats but does that some how make that point a fact?

Question, are you actually reading the articles? Might help you figure out how the information was collected.

Any chance you can show how they are flawed or incorrect?

Good comment, I completely respect anyone sticking to their guns. What I despise is when their guns begin to start firing blanks. Some people resort to attempting to change the subject. It shows a complete lack of maturity and their marriage to an opinion. ( not you dude you seem pretty straight up)

So even though they're not your stats do you agree with them? Because if you agree with them they are your stats!

So I will basically ask you the same question again. Do you agree with those stats? If so you own those stats!

That is all you want to address?

All I asked is that you show how they are flawed, I guess that is to much to ask.

You win Greathouse, I lose, as obviously I can't content with you.

Sad that we agreed on other topics but this had to get nasty

I also had one personal attack in there that I would like to apologize for, I can some times let emotion get the better of me.

I accept your apology and I understand. People can get emotionally invested in a topic I've done it myself.

First one I saw too. Funny thing is the accompanying article actually states the U.S. is in the 28th position overall. It Must be a Conspiracy!! LOL

time.com...

A simple google search brings up a "Time" article saying the same thing.. There are many others if you type in 2015 world education rankings..


1. Singapore

2. Hong Kong

3. South Korea

4. Japan

4. Taiwan

6. Finland

7. Estonia

8. Switzerland

9. Netherlands

10. Canada


The first step to solve a problem is to recognize there is one to begin with... Our (America's education system) sucks... Just look at many/most of the scientific papers being published and the names affixed to them. Many PHDs came from overseas to finish the higher education... found a well paying job in the states and remained.. Even Michio Kaku brought the sad state of our education system in one of his videos.. by saying something to the effect we would have slipped farther without bringing in educated Brain power from overseas..

No anger here, just pointing out the obvious that your gluttony is nothing to be proud of.

The fact you fail to see that, then go off on one about "the British Empire" and some delusion of envy just highlights the piss poor education you received, proving the OP.



Hi mate. He would come over there and punch you in the face.....if only he could read a map


My opinion.....I cant believe the lack of geography taught in the USA.
