3. Saudi Arabia 70 days 50% pay.

And they rank 26th in health care delivery. The US ranks 37th. I am thinking if the Saudi's are beating us in these areas we really need to reassess our priorities.

4. And some one please tell me our national policy is not driven by right-wing oligarchs,

that ours is the government of the people, by the people, and for the people, that our government promotes the general welfare than the welfare of monied interests.

5. True that, but not without a lot of help from "the people".

The people just loved Saint Ronnie and thought those bleeding heart liberals were a joke. The people voted for those they thought would kick those welfare queens off the public dole. The people played right into the rhetoric of racism and division. They say you get the government you deserve. Now that a new bunch of people are voting, maybe things will start to head in a better direction. I sure hope so.
