1. Wait, wait, wait -- now we're a model? I thought we were all capitalist pigs two weeks ago

I wish Der Spiegel would make up its mind.

Personally, I think they just want to hate on the US. As a liberal Democrat, I'm far, far beyond tired of my country and countrypeople being insulted from abroad. We're damned if we do and damned if we don't.

We don't have to model for ANYONE. Other countries need to find their own way. We went without health care and any but the most minimal societal support systems in the guise of "saving nations" who could afford to give their citizens everything we never could. Americans have to do what's right for OUR people, not for multinational companies.
