Scott Walker engages in some good, old-fashioned jingoism

Scott Walker hates the media because they deal in facts, as does this video opinion piece, "Please Stop Telling Me America is Great".  (Odds are Scott hasn't watched it.  The narration is engagingly cheeky.)

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) rankings of 36 countries.

According to Merriam-Webster, the first known use of "jingoism" occurred in 1878.

Other coinages from the same year include:
  1. backflow
  2. classless
  3. crime against humanity
  4. flapdoodle
  5. nonfunctional
  6. ring-around-the-rosy
  7. self-obsessed
