I actually agreed with you on Lake Erie & East River being contaminated being wrong.<quoted text>
Your grasp of history is faulty, so your conclusions are faulty as well. One thing HAS truly declined since the '50s ... education.
The evidence is in your posts.
However in many other ways the U.S has become worse since the 1950's.
... I bought up such a evidence...
....Do you even read & be reasonable?
Or do you automatically rely on talking smack if someone merely attempts to debate you with a contrary view in some aspects.... Only some aspects as I agree about the contimination being an issue in Lake Erie & the East River.
