    From the article...quackity quack..

    "Deaths considered preventable through health care are less frequent in Canada than in the U.S., according to a January 2008 report in the journal Health Affairs. In the study by British researchers, Canada placed sixth among 19 countries surveyed, with 77 deaths for every 100,000 people. That compared with the last-place finish of the U.S., with 110 deaths.

    Infant Mortality

    The Canadian mortality rate from asthma is one quarter of the U.S.’s, and the infant mortality rate is 34 percent lower, OECD data show. People in Canada are also 21 percent more apt to survive five years after a liver transplant."

    No Way! We must fight this healthcare reform and here's why;

    1- I own much stock in JNJ, Pfizer, and Merck and they make 10's of billion$ in unregulated profits under our current plan! Love it!
    2- According to the W.H.O. our current system spends a higher portion of gross domestic product than any other country but ranks 37th out of 191 countries according to its performance. And 37 is my lucky number! Can I get an Amen?
    3- The USA ranks #50 in life expectancy. I for one don't like old people (they smell bad) and our current system makes sure there aren't many around! (Bosnians live longer than us and they have bombs dropped directly on their heads!) Nice short life, enjoy...
    4- Affordable healthcare for all Americans is a crazy liberal idea. We've got to give tax cuts to the rich (like me) and with the trillions already spent giving healthcare to the people of Iraq we can't afford it!
    5- Lastly If you get sick it's probably because God doesn't like you very much; "The LORD shall smite the sinner with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish."--Deuteronomy 28:22

    Call your local politician and tell him/her affordable healthcare for all Americans is not an option!

    God Bless you my fello Republicans!

    PEW SURVEY: "Daily Show Viewers Most Knowledgable, Fox News Viewers Rank Lowest"

    A new study by the Pew Research Study shows that viewers of the Daily Show and the Colbert Report have the highest knowledge of national and international affairs, while Fox News viewers rank nearly dead last.

    Despite significant technology shifts, however, Pew found that “today’s citizens are about as able to name their leaders, and are about as aware of major news events, as was the public nearly 20 years ago.”

    The results about Fox News echo findings of previous surveys. In 2003, a World Public Opinion/University of Maryland survey studied the public’s belief in three false claims — that Iraq possessed WMD, that Iraq was involved in 9/11, and that there was international support for the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

    The researchers stated, “The extent of Americans’ misperceptions vary significantly depending on their source of news. Those who receive most of their news from Fox News are more likely than average to have misperceptions.” Fox News viewers were “three times more likely than the next nearest network to hold all three misperceptions."

    No surprise.

  • There are five indisputable facts that no political party disagrees with:

    • Health care is the second biggest contributor to our budget deficit (after wars).

    • The U.S. spends more than twice as much on health care per person than any other nation, and the cost keeps increasing every year.

    • Today, 45 million Americans have no health insurance. Last year, 18,000 Americans died because they’re not insured, and 1 million American families went bankrupt from medical bills. These numbers rise every year.

    • According to the United Nations Health Department, the U.S. health care system ranks 37th in the world.

    • Among G-20 nations, ours is the only one that doesn’t have a single-payer universal health care system.

    Even Switzerland, “the European capital of capitalism,” voted to test the universal system for a decade, then permanently adopted it. With these facts alone, a 10-year-old could tell us how to fix our health care system.

    Facts are stubborn things.

    The dumbing-down of America

    Only Six Percent of Scientists Are Republicans: Pew Poll

    Scientists Snub GOP

    A new study by the Pew Research Center finds that the GOP is alienating scientists to a startling degree. Only six percent of America's scientists identify themselves as Republicans; fifty-five percent call themselves Democrats. By comparison, 23 percent of the overall public considers itself Republican, while 35 percent say they're Democrats.

    The ideological discrepancies were similar. Nine percent of scientists said they were "conservative" while 52 percent described themselves as "liberal," and 14 percent "very liberal." The corresponding figures for the general public were 37, 20 and 5 percent.

    Among the general public, moderates and independents ranked higher than any party or ideology. But among scientists, there were considerably more Democrats (55%) than independents (32%) and Republicans (6%) put together. There were also more liberals (52%) than moderates (35%) and conservatives (9%) combined.
    "These results were not a complete surprise," said Scott Keeter, Director of Survey Research at Pew, in an interview with the Huffington Post. He said they can be mostly attributed to "the difference between Democratic and Republican parties with respect to issues."

    The wide ideological and partisan gap among scientists may have been exacerbated by the Bush administration, which often disputed broad scientific consensus on topics such as evolution and climate change.
    Keeter acknowledged this factor, but said that "many of these disputes probably predate the Bush administration," noting that scientists have favored liberal views in numerous past studies.
    Religion also plays a role. Republicans tend to promote the centrality of religion more often than Democrats, and while 95 percent of the public said they believe in "God" or "a higher power," only 51 percent of scientists claimed either.

    "Many Republicans, especially the Evangelical wing of the party, are skeptical of evolution, and have argued for the teaching of creationism and intelligent design in school," said Keeter.
    The results could merely be a reflection of how scientists see the world, rather than of partisan loyalties. In a series of questions posed, the study found that the answers of scientists were consistently more in line with liberal viewpoints than those of the general public.

    "The Republican Party has a number of leaders within it who have challenged the accuracy of scientific findings on issues such as climate change, evolution and stem cell research," Keeter told the Huffington Post.
    "It suggests that scientists who are Republicans might feel some dissonance from the party's position on some things that are important to them. And while there are Republicans in the scientist sample, there are really not that many," he said.

    Denny is an inbred, Fox News-humping, wackjob and you can easily tell when he is posting his own thoughts because every third word is spelled incorrectly.

  • The United States is the only industrialized country in the world without a universal health insurance system.

    Half of all bankruptcies in the USA are caused by medical bills.

    Three-quarters of those filings are people with health insurance.

    18,000 Americans died last year because they did not have access to healthcare.

    Only rich people should have healthcare.

    Administrative costs account for 31 percent of all health care expenditures in the U.S.

    The average overhead for U.S. private health insurers is 11.7 percent; for Medicare, it is 3.6 percent; for Canada’s national health insurance program, it is 1.3 percent.

    Canadians have a lower infant mortality rate than we do in the United States and live 3 years longer.

    Cubans have a lower infant mortality rate than we do in the United States and have a longer lifespan.

    Lifetime medical costs in the U.S. average approximately $325,000 per person.

    The United States spends twice as much on health care per capita ($7,129) as any other country.

    Despite the fact that Americans spend more per capita on health care than any other nation on Earth, the UN World Health Organization ranks the U.S. 37th on the planet as far as the quality of health of its citizens, 20th in life expectancy and 27th in infant mortality. And nearly 50 million Americans have no health insurance at all! France, on the other hand, was rated number one by the WHO despite only spending $3040 per capita in health care dollars for its citizens. Singapore is ranked 6th in the world by the WHO as far as the quality of health of its citizens, yet it spends a mere $1118 per capita.

    Lastly here are CEO salaries of U.S. insurance/drug companies, using United Healthcare as an example -- your insurance company paid their CEO -- one man -- $324,000,000 over a recent five year period.
