 As I said earlier in this post, I don't watch youtube videos, they have no real value in the way of factual information.  They're opinions or entertainment, nothing more.  Rankings as compared to other nations still mean nothing when it comes down to whether or not you are happy and satisfied with your surroundings and how they work for you.

Quoting Val99:

 

This thread had absolutely nothing to do with saying if you are happy here.  If you watched the video they list our rank against the other countries of the world and we come out wanting.  What does happiness here have to do with that?

Quoting Dzyre1115:

 You don't have to think it's perfect and I think it is silly to stay in a place that makes you unhappy.  Many, many people are happy here and for the most part are content with the way things are.  No place is going to be perfect, because there is no such place as Utopia and there never will be, but there is a perfect place for every person and for me that is America.

Quoting Val99:

It is arrogant to say we are the greatest when we are only #1 in 3 things.  Stop thinking that if you live here you have to think it's perfect.  If we all close our eyes and believe it's perfect no one will strive to improve.

Quoting Dzyre1115:

 I think that you should be happy where you live and if America does not fulfill your needs you should find a place on Earth that does.  I have family all over the World, some prefer their country, some prefer ours.  It's all about what you're looking for.  So for me America is the greatest country in the World for others that may not be true.
