Never to be Seen in Mainstream Media

Please note that the following was sent to the Jefferson County Beer Party by a follower via email.  As you read through the statistics stated herein, you may soon realize many of the figures shown were compiled before the advent of Obamacare, and may be somewhat different today than they were when compiled.  However, the statistics do demonstrate not everything the mainstream news media feeds us is factual, nor can much of it be substantiated through truthful facts.  This may be because the mainstream media considers itself so superior over us lowly American citizens, and thinks we’re too stupid to realize we’re being hoodwinked by them.  From that email:

Intellectuals can persuade the public that government programs are good for us all, which sound okay and feel good, but are not practical in terms of implementation.  They hide in academia, and are seldom touched by the real world.

California, New Mexico, Mississippi, Alabama, Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, New York, Maine and South Carolina, have more people on welfare than they do employed.

Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support.

What’s the problem with that much support?  Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $13713 a day.  To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for 40 hour week, while the average job pays $24.00 an hour.

A recent “Investor’s Business Daily” article provided 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%

% of patients diagnosed with diabetes -received treatment within 6 months:

U.S. 93% ….. … ….. England 15% ….. … ….. Canada 43%

% of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:

U.S. 90% ….. … ….. England 15% ….. … ….. Canada 43%

%  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

% of seniors (65+), with low income, who 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)

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.  Real-life business; not a government job.  Unlike the Trump administration with more real-life business experience than being a part of the political mayhem in Washington DC.  Here are the percentages:

38%    T. Roosevelt

40%    Taft

52%    Wilson

49%    Harding

48%    Coolidge

42%    Hoover

50%    F. D. Roosevelt

50%    Truman

57%    Eisenhower

30%    Kennedy

47%    Johnson

53%    Nixon

42%    Ford

32%    Carter

56%    Reagan

51%    GH Bush

39%    Clinton

55%    GW Bush

 8%     Obama 

This helps demonstrate the bias, if not the incompetence, of the Obama liberal democratic 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 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 spent most of their time in academia, government, and/or non-profit jobs or as “community organizers.”
