Surprise, surprise, surprise!

What is wrong with our country? For many years I actually believed we were the best. That should attest to the effectiveness of the degree of brainwashing I had been subjected to. Now, I realize that we are not even second best for things that matter most to the majority of the populace. However, I am still hoping that this  country will achieve the level of greatness which I and many others, thought it already had.
