Nothing for Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan and others.   Nothing on Yemen?  Why do I suspect the writers purposely exempted Muslim countries?

So what's the point of the article? Is the media expecting and/or wanting everyone who reads it to jump up and down and proclaim the need for a one world, unified government? Do they honestly believe THAT is the answer? Governments of any form will always be corrupt, because politicians (those in "power") and the greedy will always be corrupt, self-serving, narcissistic men and women who believe they not only have the right to rule but are entitled to the wealth of society, and they will always work feverishly to hold down anyone and everyone they think may take away their "power" and riches.

Ease off the sarcasm and the political satire. I'm involved with a volunteer organization (not religious) where we travel world wide paying 100% paid out of your own pocket and our vacation time to help the poor. I have been in 54 countries and have seen humans who were born into poverty, will live in poverty and will die in poverty with little chance to escape.  You would have a whole new respect for this country (with all of our problems) and a deep passion for another human who suffers just fine something to eat. It really hurts and I understand where the term 'Ugly American' come from with our arrogance and greed. What would you do if that was your child with a bloated belly from starvation. Merry Christmas with all our abundance.

With so many Americans complaining about their wages and reductions in SNAP, I'm surprised the USA isn't on this list.

I would like to know about these survey's, how come I am never asked? Would you say that includes the most of us!

You lost me with "survey". There are 90 MILLION job blockaded people in America... the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave... who can't readily afford a full-priced Achatz Apple Pie.

If you are going to do a survey, do it on "Which countries have the most useless psychopaths addicted to Kool Aid?"


We would win hands down. Too bad Kool Aid isn't real life and the sugar crash can kill.

Even with the current economic turmoil of the USA,  the US is still blessed when compared to many other countries around the world.  No, I don't agree with some of the political policies, but it could be worse, much worse.

There is always a country that has poor folks as well as countries whose own people think their government is corrupt. Some of the best companies in the world have come from those who have rose up from poverty and made something better of themselves and their community. It is one thing to go to a country to help people in need, but unless you give them the tools and education to better themselves then you have not helped them. The key here is teaching people something else that war and hate. majority of the people in the world would rather work for what they have than to depend on a government to supply their daily needs. It does not matter if they are from Armenia, Pakistan, Niger, Portugal, Chile, China, Venezuela, or even the United States of America. people want to earn their own keep. It will make people feel better about themselves.

How can it be that only 4% of the U.S. population is unhappy when the lib-tarded media is constantly crying about how half the country is in poverty and needs a handout?


AND, it's the 1%'s fault (well, theirs and Bush's) that people are poor and unhappy!  MSN told me so!

I can't believe Somolia isn't on this list.

To hear the "momma didn't change my diaper enough crowd" tell it there is no place worse than the USA.  This is a shocking report considering the source.

Notice that none of these countries is at war? What about the ones that are at war such as Syria, Sudan, much of equatorial Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Why are North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela not on this list. Are you telling me that Hungary deserves mention when all the others do not?


Oh, that's right, this was a poll which means you have to be able to talk to people and in all those other country the people are either dead or will be dead if they talk.

Some should just appreciate that they've been blessed in life as a human as there are far less desirable forms of life

Blah,blah,blah,blah, blah.

Anyone can say anything about anyplace...but at the end of the day people vote with their feet -- the one statistic the authors didn't take into account.

Had they taken the time to travel to Bulgaria, they would have noticed thousands of university students from Turkey. They would run into thousands of Britons who had quit their jobs, sold their property and bought homes in Bulgarian villages. And they would see thousands of refugees -- with more pouring in all the time -- from predominantly Islamic countries who spend thousands of dollar and risked their lives to bypass Turkey and seek asylum in....Bulgaria.

Why haven't they been moving American factories and Manufacturing to these countries rather than to China?
