Dear King Abdulla:Read more >>
Just in case you haven't noticed, Jordan sucks. It sucks so bad that Sri Lanka, Malta, and Zimbabwe all were granted more US patents in 2009 than Jordan. Would you like more numbers? How about...
- on corruption Jordan is given 4.7 out of 10, worse than Botswana and Puerto Rico.
- Jordan ranks 111 out of 183 countries when it comes to ease of doing business. It's actually easier to do business in Yemen!
- Jordan is full of maba3ees that we rank 52nd out of 155 on happiness.
- and...our lovely press freedom is so bad that there are 119 countries who have it better. Do you know who offers better press freedom? The savage dictator Laurent Gbagbo of the Ivory Coast!
Therefore, once the country is done celebrating your birthday, please consider making a real push for reform and stop insulting our intelligence with another "tsok" story.
