Today’s highly interesting read (07/04/17): What’s Great About America

It’s really simplistic to trash the good ol’ US of A this holiday. Just Google and you’ll find all kinds of columns and editorials about how America stinks.

Yet these America-haters will still love to take the 4th of July as a vacation day.

For many years I filled in for Mark Belling and other talk show hosts at NewsTalk 1130 WISN. While filling in for Mark Belling on one occasion I had the pleasure of interviewing a special guest, Dinesh D’Souza.

He wrote the following in 2006.

“America provides an amazingly good life for the ordinary guy. Rich people live well everywhere, but what distinguishes America is that it provides a remarkably high standard of living for the ‘common man.’ A country is not judged by how it treats its most affluent citizens but by how it treats the average citizen.”

Good then, and good now.

A lengthy piece, but well worth your time.

Here it is.
