If someone offered you 10 million dollars, but taking the money meant that a stranger in a third world country would die, would you take it?

I appreciate your reply and that you wouldn't accept the money, but I can't help but wonder if you really think that we live in a third world country or if you are just making a clever statement about our poor economic status currently...

Oh, nevermind my last post then. We are actually considered a first world country still, but we are ranked very low in things like crime and life expectancy among other first world countries.

You are wrong on every count... Diseases has not run rampant... We have out breaks just as people always have when you have large populations but nothing that could even come close, because of better methods of control, to third world conditions.

Everyone in the US, even those here illegally, can get health care anytime they need it...Just not anytime the want it... And have been able to do so for a century. Anyone can walk into a hospital anywhere and they can get treated... Not being able to get your booboo patched up anytime you want it for free is a long way from no health care.

We are the Fattest country on the planet closely followed by Britain... If anyone is Starving it's either their own fault or if it's a kid it's their parents fault.. I can go anytime of day or night, even if I don't have a penny in my pocket and eat... So can Every Person in the US.. Food Pantries, friends, neighbors, stores, restaurants exist.. If you were really starving you can walk into Micky D's and someone will give you a burger... If a kid is Starving it's the Parents Fault for not doing what is required to feed them.. We as a nation throw away millions of tons of food each year... Not getting your free government cheese does not equate to starving.

Again No One.. Not a Single Person needs to have malnutrition unless the Parent is a piece of crap and Lets their kids not get the nourishment... And adult has either mental issues or drug issues if they are malnourished because they can actually work and if not able get help anytime they wish...

Persecution ?.. What Victim Mindset group are you speaking of... In Third World Countries Persecution consists of roaming bands of gun and machete carrying folks slaughtering whole villages...

Our Literacy rates are very high in the nation.. Locally it's a bit higher that nationally but thats because many wish to stop growth and causes our best and brightest to leave, leaving behind a larger number of our worst and dimmest.. But Anyone, And Everyone that wishes to Learn can anytime the wish,,,

Gang Violence is a problem but no where close, not even a tiny bit close to a Third World issue... In a Third World today Gangs kill whole local populations en mass... 5 teenagers egging your car does not a Gang make...

But some would take the money if you changed it from a stranger in a third world country and stated it as Your Mom, Your Dad, Your Brother, Your Sister or Your Whole Family while you watched....

Not a chance. And, we are no where near third world status. I've been to those countries many times. Despite all our flaws, this nation is by far still the greatest country on earth.

We call the above a tantrum... Poor little thing... I would be glad to point out again that what you say is idiotic but when you go off diaper dropping it becomes obvious you are a waste of oxygen....
