    Very interesting Stats

    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 sees 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%


    And now for the last statistic:
    National Health Insurance?

    U.S. NO

    England YES

    Canada YES

    And liberals want to make the US like England and Canada!!!


    Where is AARP????

    (Counting their money and the money for their liberal friends!!!)


    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 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%

    GH Bush......................... 51%

    Clinton ........................... 39%

    GW Bush........................ 55%

    Obama.............................. 8%



    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?

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

    with the most successful economic system in world history,

    stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one?

    Or about jobs when he has never really had 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

    employment line.

    Nearly all of those administrations showed woeful incompetence in the economics area.

    I'd be more interested in how many in the cabinet are constitutionalists.

    We need more STRICT constitutionalists in the congress as well.

    If you run government spending BY the CONSTITUTION, you don't have the problems we have.

    even Carter had 32%!

    another stat to throw out there, this is the first president since WWII to NOT have at least one quarter of 4% GDP growth.

    and we now know why!

    Another one of his pet energy projects bellied up today. The announcement came just as the Canadian and Mexican presidents arrived at the WH to discuss energy. Gotta love the timing of the news release.
