Best, and brightest??? I hate to be the bearer of bad news. I have lived outside of the States for the last 5 years; in various countries.
Overall many other nations are more advanced in regards to the future for their children. The US was once the best, and brightest, but now only represent the largest amount of Fat, and Ignorant.
The numerous countries I've experienced will dominate over a future world order where unfortunately the US will play the 3rd world role. Not only Europe, Asia, and Latin America are striving forward. The children KNOW English before the age of 10, and even in what we consider 3rd world sh*t h*les they are learning US History.....?
Why US History? They are learning our thought process. Why we do what we do.
What do we learn in the States? How to be ignorant, and obnoxious.
