Gaia worshipping enviromentalists rank countries for happiness and sustainability. According to the Happy Planet Index, the United States is a worse place to live than Venezuela, Cuba, and Sudan. But don’t lose hope. Obama has four more years so anything could happen.

The HPI? The . . . Hippie? God this has to be just about the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen.
” life expectancy, experienced well-being and Ecological Footprint”
“experienced well-being”? WTF?
I think their theme song should the classic from Styx: “Too Much Time On My Hands.”

They have a small footprint because they have no home, education, transportation, or food.

Pfft. MEXICO? If there was any doubt as to credibility and lack thereof. Argentina, I can see as being up there. But yeah, Ethiopia, Sudan, Ghana, Guatemala, Colombia – all better somehow than the US? GTFO, Hippie.

So Bangladesh and Cambodia are “happier” than the United States? Spare me the leftwing bullsh*t.

Just horrifying. Oh, and before some nitwit halfwit pops up with the tired old tune of legalizing dope to confound the drug gangs — they’ll just find some other profitable, illegal activity to terrorize people and rich by. If it aint pot, it’ll be coke, or heroin. In 20 years it might be Twinkies, the way things are going, or Marlboros. Or wetbacks. They’re already branching into it, I hear.

If a Sasquatch was actually found, it wouldn’t be on a show called “Finding Bigfoot.” It would be on a show called The News.

What a steaming load of nonsense. On the two items I would consider most important, life expectancy and well-being, the USA is in the green. But our ecological footprint must count most because in the overall map the USA is in the red. What else would you expect from environmental wacko tree huggers?

In Beverly Hills, they’re now selling caviar, truffles & escargot in vending machines. Today’s reminder why the rest of the world hates us.

Who would eat a snail that dropped out of a vending machine?

Can’t say I ever ate a snail? Can’t say I would even want to.

Well, on the positive side, they’re easy to lasso during the roundup.

They’re not bad. Not my FAVORITE food. Wrap the little buggers in bacon.

Sometimes I feel like the whole world just needs to jack-off and take a nap.

Who give a flying F*ck about this survey? besides the Lamestream meadia because they “think” it’s news….I would be willing to bet the misery index drops way down in four years when dear leader goes back to Kenya.

Uhm I would rather live on the streets here than on a shack in the Sudan. These people are insane.
