Cripes, I can't believe this thread has sidetracked into music AND that it wasn't Dow's doing..!!

Somehow I think maybe it was me after all, things seemed to go in another direction after I put up that silly cartoon about "How Americans View The World"

But I had a somewhat serious reason for doing it, back to my way earlier thought, and that was why can't part of our national debate be about comparing our health system to other countries directly? Why is that we see almost none of that on the talk shows, or speeches given, somebody citing figures and statistics about how Japan does it, or the Netherlands?

And now I just think because to do so would be political suicide, the response from the angry mob would be something like "Well move to those countries then!" That is, if you could hear that over the repeated chants of "We're Number One! We're Number One!"
