The USA's biggest challenge: M+A+T+H

This blog post is a little soap boxish for me, but personal blogs provide these liberties.  This is my disclaimer.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the United States of America struggles with elementary math. I mean:

or, more importantly

Two examples of this struggle with elementary math are diet and finances. I’m not a nutritionist, but I do know if you consume more calories than you burn, you’ll gain weight. I’m also not a financial planner, but I do know if your expenses exceed your revenue, you’ll be in debt.

The equation is simple. The answer is obvious. And the USA soars to unprecedented levels of obesity and debt.
