I'm not sure it is that much better than other places, but I will agree that the probability of getting a huge punitive award is much higher.

There's nothing here to indicate any of these student were liberals.

Newsmax isn't really any source with a history of being CLOSE to credible. Maybe this would have been a better source.

Statement from ASUCI President on Flag Legislation | ASUCI
They are wannabe commies and have already been rebuked and the flag stays. It didn't take long to shoot these wannabe commies down in flames.

It's much better than Ukraine or Russia. Admittedly, that's not a high bar.

Flipping out over "disrespect" toward America (by way of removing a flag from view) = patriotism.
Flipping out over "disrespect" toward Islam (by way of burning a Koran) = religious extremism, fanaticism, terrorism, yadda yadda yadda.

Perhaps you all should redefine "patriotism" to mean something that isn't a total affront to human values and rationality.

On average, it is a great place to live but you have lost some and others have gained some.

I don't have knowledge of the medicine side but in science I will dispute this. Both in terms of basic research and in terms of R&D, other countries contribute much. And trying to quantify these things is virtually impossible.

The NSB's biennial report the Science and Engineering still rank the US as number one, the gap closed some during the recession because of cutbacks in R & D, but has gotten back on track. The gap has narrowed in the last decade.

Tell the families of the hundred thousand civilians dead in an Iraq War executed on false pretenses about your idea of "civil justice". Americans think we deserve the moniker of "Exceptional" just because. Americans don't want to retain that title based on MERIT anymore IMO.
