There are actually two messages here.

The first is very interesting, but the second 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%

          Canada                43% 

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who will 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% 

And now for the last statistic:

        National Health Insurance? 

          U.S.                   NO 

          England             YES 

          Canada             YES 

        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 inexperience 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.

Pass this on because we’ll NEVER see these facts in the main stream media.
