Happiest Nations Have Social Services, Healthy Environment, Good Schools & Health Care (U.S. Not On List)

News

The happiest nations in the world are almost nothing like the United States,according to the business website 24/7 Wall Street. Does the average person have financial security, government-backed health care, quality education, a healthy natural environment and a sane work-life balance? Those are the world's happy people, and you'll find them in economically stable social-welfare states such as Canada, Finland, Australia, Switzerland and Denmark. "The happiest people in the developed world get loads of social services without having to work too hard," says 24/7 Wall Street, which is named for the opposite of having a sane work-life balance. "Nations with long-term economic strength can also afford to support employment, education, and make health care widely available. The happiest countries seem to be places where there is a good balance of work and leisure time." The United States, obviously, does not make an appearance on this list of Wealthy, Happy Countries.


Why can't America have any happiness? Because the U.S. Declaration of Independence only allowed for the ineffectual pursuit of happiness, not the actual life quality of happiness. The richest 1% of Americans pursue happiness by taking everything from everybody else, while the average American pursues happiness by hating people in the same dire financial straits but with some superficial difference in skin color or religious background.

We can't think of a joke to end this. Truck Nutz? [24/7 Wall Street]

Not surprisingly, the internet was not pleased.

Because it had been literal days since a journalist published an article about venturing into the hinterlands to meet the rubes and find out why they still love Donald Trump, the Washington Post served us up something special on Sunday! WaPo's Stephanie McCrummen went to Luverne, Alabama (population 2,700) -- more specifically to the First Baptist Church in Luverne, Alabama -- to find out how God's country faithful who hate the sin and love the sinner (Donald Trump) are holding up. Here is what she learned as she traveled through the pews of First Baptist and shook hands.

(Wonkette has changed all the names to protect the ignorant, even though WaPo used their real names LOLOL, WaPo is a dick.)
