Of course the US is doing well....in comparison to other countries, but in comparison to itself, which really is the only way to compare the US, we are spending way more than we have, we're not paying anyone back, we have the second highest child poverty rate and we are spending millions upon millions upon millions of dollars on war. Yes, YOU are doing fine.....yes our houses are nice, we can afford to eat and our streets aren't littered with beggars like many other countries, but that certainly doesn't mean that our economy is as "boooming" as it could/should be.
how dare anyone call me unthinking.
