I received this in an email from a website visitor and reader.

It is interesting and I like history so thought I would share it with everyone.

Interesting statistics

 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%

And Obama wants to change our system to like those in England and Canada.

 
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…areal-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…………… 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? 
They know what's best for GM, Chrysler, Wall Street, and you and me?

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…  we'll NEVER see these facts in the main stream media.

Genghis Khan We demand you return the land…

Should we go back and demand that every nation on the face of the earth return all the land they have ever fought over? What about the many millions of lives that have been lost because of land, War War, ll and really many wars have been fought over land, so what now we just demand that the victors return land…

Is this the hope and the Change you voted for in Washington?

Think about that for a moment, did not England have the United States first, should the US not be returned to control of England? I know its hard to understand how some people find this topic so interesting, because it is foolishness to consider that anyone can demand a nation do anything much less a leader that has no real experience in dealing with foreign nations.

Is this what you thought you would be getting when you voted for hope and change?

So This does not make any sense, if you go back and say hey, this land used to belong to someone else but through war, or through what ever means, (check your history on this) the land no longer belongs to the looser of the battle, but if you can go back in time and demand that someone give back land they won through battle then do we not need to give all the land back to the Native Indians?

What about the Land in the south, was not Florida a Spanish colony at one time.

Texas, should we go back and give Texas back to Mexico?

Wait, what about Germany, should not we now go back to 1939 and demand that Germany be afforded its land back.

What about even further back in time, did not England take Ireland and now should not England return to its former enemies the land and the usury of that land to Ireland and its families?

So, looking at this issue what about Genghis Khan should not all the land and all the peoples and all the slaves that they took be returned to their rightful owners?

So when you look at a statement like this.

President Obama, in speech on Middle East policy, tells Israel to pull back to its 1967 borders and allow for creation of self-governing Palestinian state

When you think about it no one else would demand anything of another nation, it would be a silly thing to do, when you make demands of other nations, you cause your self and your family (thats us by the way) to look dumb and most Americans understand that this kind of “give the land” back thing is just plan dumb.

Do you wonder why Gas is so high, do you wonder why the cost of food is so high, what about the state of the economy? When you look at the sheer ignorance of such a statement, (allegedly)
(I am sure it was someone else’s fault or perhaps some bad advice)

Not sure, but I am sure of one thing, no one in the history of all mankind has ever demanded that any nation return land won in battle, no matter how long ago it has been.

I find it insulting that we have people in Washington that are so un-educated in historical facts, what is wrong with people that do not know history?

So, what do you think is it bad advice or is it a lack of education?

I have to really question this kind of hope and change because we need real hope and real change not ignorance.
