India likes us!

Dad and I have been watching a baseball game on television. It is one thing he can watch without worrying about following a plot line. He can watch half an inning, sleep, watch another inning, sleep --- he seems to feel a little better today.

Great news from India -- someone likes us! Asia Times says that

"Fully 71% in India express a positive opinion of the United States, compared with 54% three years ago," the survey says. Favorable opinion of the US in India was higher than any of the countries surveyed, including Canada (where it declined from 72% three years ago to 59%) and the United Kingdom, where it dipped considerably from 75% to 55%. Indians also had the most favorable opinion of the American people - 71% compared to 70% in Britain, 66% in Canada, 65% in Germany, 64% in France, 61% in Russia and 43% in China. The survey was conducted among 17,000 people in the US and 15 other countries from April 20 to May 31."

When I was in India a short time back, they were all very hospitable to our American group.

Glad to hear this (postive views around the world of the US)...

Too often our leftist main-stream media present the pessimistic opposite view...

Wishing you Joy,
