What China said is a load. If they give the US a "D" I would give them something down in the "G" range. They really have no right to say anything about anyone. Until they earn that right the Chinese government should just shut its trap.

A "D", I would say that sounds correct. China is not comparing us with them, no where in the report do they say they are better than us, but the report does state facts from our own census buruea and goverment. How many times a day can you watch tv and see some charity ad with some child standing in garbage in another country. Has anyone ever looked in there back yard and seen the poverty in our great nation. Has anyone been to the projects in the city they live and seen the crime, and just look at our prisons all full to the max. Come on people just open your eyes and see what is happening in our own back yard. Poverty, crime, gov control, racism (from both sides), and of course murder. What do we do to say we are taking care of this, we create more paperwork, this is not the answer. look at are schools children have to be searched why? What happened to the U.S.A of the old days? I hope this report does something to help our nation, we need it sincerely a fourth generation american.
