  • What a vague question. But yes.
  • Yes, Thanks for asking
  • Yes, often. Those of us born in First-World Nations are incredibly lucky.
  • Given what's been going on in other parts of the world, I feel like I won the lottery by being born in the USA.
  • Yes, I do.
  • Not really, but I do think of how lucky I am to be born in my family :)
  • You've got to be kidding me... Lucky???
  • Yes, but I know no other way of life. +5
  • I live in the U.S., so I have had that thought many times!
  • There are many other countries with the same or even better standard of living so not really. Don't get me wrong I am not saying I am not grateful for being born in the United States but some people here disgust me by their arrogance. I hope there are still humble down to earth people in this country.
  • I was just thinking about that today, I actually believe I'm really lucky to be born with well educated parents with steady paying jobs and a nice house :)
  • I personally feel I'm lucky to be born in America, but this means nothing. People always feel that whatever country they are born in is the best in the world. That is if the country has enough propoganda.
  • I grew up in a middle-class suburb, but I now live in one of the poorest cities in the United States. Some neighborhoods are in ruin and are used as toilets for governmental or business interests. I don't live in a heavily polluted neighborhood for this city's standards, but I still feel strongly that someone should stick up for the voiceless. The infant mortality rates in this city are closer to 3rd world rates than United States rates. There are many abandoned, boarded up buildings and homeless people in this city. This is probably a relic of the population's perpetual inability to resist subjugating practices employed by those who have credit monopolies and are always on the winning side of arbitrage in the exchange of labor for cash. --- I am moving soon, but many do not have that option. Those who are more fortunate should assume a duty towards those who are less fortunate. It helps to think in terms of allocating resources instead of allocating money. The former are abundantly available for problem resolution while money is, by design, scarce. This will help one to think in terms of win-win instead of sacrifice.
  • I'm not much of a fan of the UK, so no.
  • yes, i really like the country i was born in. it's special in that way :) home sweet home they say....
  • It's more like "a certain number of conscious bodies people are born in the US, of which one of them is typing this answer". But yes, this conscious body is happy to live here instead of where many of the other conscious bodies of the world live.
  • yes I do. I was very fortunate to be born in the USA>
  • Yes, I've often thought that and I'm very grateful for it.
