I think wrong, or that's my experiences anyway. As I don't know any intelligent person that world refer to the USA as the greatest country in the world.

Frankly, you'd have to be a total idiot to think that.

could be all the magic mushrooms, LSD, YABA, meth, cocaine, etc that they consume distorting their perception?

interpret it any way you chose but when you also look at the deaths by police action there, for me there is no way i would be setting foot anywhere near the place.

never been to india so dont really know, asian place that i do have great length of experience with is thailand, whatever else they may do or not do i see thai police as highly efficient in bringing wrong doers into custody. high profiles case they wish to solve, they have suspects for display in days. not encountered this sort of efficiency in other places where i have resided for any length of time.

Do you mean that elsewhere they tend to wait until they get the guy that actually committed the crime?

elsewhere they are only able to attract failed losers into the ranks. school dropouts, sons of janitors, sons of ministers of christian religions , etc.
thai police are of a higher quality.

oishi green tea genmai flavour in the orange bottle. currently at least 2X500ml bottles a day.will cut down to 2 or less. thanks for the suggestion. yes its probably too much. makes me laugh and smile too much, but cant see how its going to raise the quality of those substandard farang police.

oh theres currently a green teas price war on so discounted bottles galore everywhere, get in while you can

They spend far too much time sitting behind their desks GG, perhaps we should halve their salaries and make them get off their a*ses and get out on the streets on their pushbikes. Cut the cost of the UK prison service at a stroke as well if they spent less time catching criminals and more time collecting tea money :-"

I'm from Texas and we are very proud of our state and of our country. Greatest country in the world? Probably not, I'm quite sure there are many other places that would hold that title. I'm almost 63 and in my life time I have seen so much change, sadly much for the worse. If you get away from the big cities and meet the real Americans I think you would be impressed. The lust for more $$$, homes, cars, boats, trucks, land and more $$$ has just turned me off completely. I love America but am much happier here in Udon, the simple life.

Ditto on all counts.

The America I grew up in is no more.

.
Sadly I think that could be said about most countries including my own, Gt Britain. Whilst I still feel a stong affinity with it, the changes it has gone through makes it almost impossible for me to live there, especially in my retirement.But then again I have lived here in Thailand, on and off, for over 30 years, my God the changes over that period of time are unbelievable, some for the better but most not .I often wonder if maybe its part of aging saying " Things ain't what they used to be", but seriously there not and I feel glad that I am nearing the end of my life and can just opt out of things I find unpleasant and continue to enjoy the others.
Things ain't what they used to be.

Nothing...well SNL is pretty good. I see a lot of US expats here, that speaks for itself.
