I know.  I'm preaching to the choir.  I love sending this stuff to the non-believers as well.

            There are actually two messages here. The 1st is very interesting, but

  the 2nd is absolutely astounding - and explains a lot.

  A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very

  interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations

  International Health Organization.

    Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years

  after diagnosis:

  U.S. :  65%

  England:  46%

  Canada: 42%

    Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received

  treatment within six months:

  U.S.: 93%

  England:  15%

  Canada:  43%

    Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it

  within six months:

  U.S.:  90%

  England:  15%

  Canada:  43%

    Percentage referred to a medical specialist & who see one within

  one month:

  U.S.:  77%

  England:  40%

  Canada:  43%

    Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million

  people:

  U.S.:  71

  England:  14

  Canada:  18

    Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in

  "excellent health":

  U.S.:  12%

  England:  2%

  Canada:  6%

    Check this last set of statistics!!

  The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in

  the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.

  You know what the private business sector is right?  It is a real-life

  business, not a government job. Here are the percentages:

  T. Roosevelt..............38%

  Taft.............................40%

  Wilson ........................52%

  Harding.......................49%

  Coolidge......................48%

  Hoover .......................42%

  F. Roosevelt................50%

  Truman.......................50%

  Eisenhower.................57%

  Kennedy......................30%

  Johnson......................47%

  Nixon..........................53%

  Ford............................42%

  Carter.........................32%

  Reagan.......................56%

  G. H. Bush.................. 51%

  Clinton?? .....................39%

  G. W. Bush..................55%

  And the winner is:

  Obama...................08%

  This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration;

  only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

  That's right! Only eight percent---the least, by far, of the

  last 19 presidents!  And these people are trying to tell our big

  corporations how to run their business?  They know what's best for

  GM, Chrysler, Wall Street, and you and me? HAH!!

    How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the

  most successful economic system in the world history, stand and talk

  about business when he's never worked for one?

  Or about jobs when he has never really had a real one? And when it's

  the same for 92%of his senior staff and closest advisers!

  They've spent most of their time in academia, government and/or

  non-profit jobs or as "community organizers."  They should have been

  in an unemployment line.

    Pass this on. We'll NEVER see these facts in the main stream

  media.

                  you will be governed by your inferiors." ~Plato~ =============
