Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Good grief! It's too bad you weren't around to speak to the US's burgeoning immigrant (both legal and illegal) population. It would have saved them the effort and expense of a trip there.

Nevertheless, you do make some good points about the existence of poverty in the US, and the lack of an adequate social safety net.  Conditions are just much worse in other "third world" countries.
