1b. And how come US citizens go to Canada for healthcare?
2. Huff Post? No. Why do you ask? My information came from a ranking by the World Health Organization in the year 2000. Here is a discussion on Wikipedia:

2a. But, you cry -- that information is SO dated! Okay, here is an article in January 2013, which discusses that, among 17 nations, the US is generally "dead last" (excuse the pun) in a) death from all causes, b) highest death rate from violence, c) highest death rate from car accidents, d) highest chance a child will die by age 5, e) second highest death rate from coronary disease, f) second highest death rate from lung disease, g) highest teen pregnancy rate, and h) highest rate of women dying due to complications of pregnancy and childbirth.

Ah, yes! Ain't American healthcare grand!(The Atlantic magazine is a conservative-leaning publication.)
3. You "heard today" that atheists "worship themselves"? Ah, hahahahahahaha! As "gods"? Take off your black opaque glasses, "Norton"! Your ability to see the real world does not exist. I know you think that I am brilliant, but I am not a "god." (Nor even an idol.) It is not necessary for you to bow when you come into my presence on this Topix thread.(However, you may if you wish.)
4. Why do I quote scripture? To show you absolutely that your thinking is often wrong.(One rule of good communication is to use examples known by your listener. Thus, I cite the Bible to show you how far wrong your are. Would you prefer, perhaps, that I quote Darwin?)
5. I note that you were not "Raptured" yesterday.(And I have often noted that Jesus promised his disciples that he would return in their lifetimes. He is only 2000 years late on that promise.)
Perhaps you are related to Nimrod? Just wondering!

"Norton," if you mean the "Nimrod" mentioned in your mythology book, I see that Nimrod is described as the son of Cush, grandson of Ham, and great-grandson of Noah; and as "a mighty one on the earth" and "a mighty hunter before God".

I suppose you believe that all people on earth descend from Noah, so that includes me (assuming that you are correct). I also suppose that I could be described as a "mighty one" in this Topix thread -- "King of the Thread"!(I have done some hunting, but I never shot anything larger than a dog.)

However, "Yellow Dawg Democrat," the skilled hunter -- does have a nice ring to it! I AM pretty good at knocking trolls down from my mountain!

The Republicans fighting each other is indicative of the fact that some like Rove know they are headed towards the cliff.

The issue is Rove and co. are the very same ones who brought the radicals on board.

All the moderate Republicans have been shoved to the side.

Truly, I wish the moderate Republicans could regain control of the extremist right-wing party the GOP has become. Perhaps the moderates can simply form another party? I hope so.

Getting rid of the monolithic reactionary foot-dragging-in-lockstep party the Neo-CONs have created would be a great thing for this country.

It is fun, except for the fact that they will not cooperate in getting the economy moving again. In particular, the "Tea Partiers" are clueless to the point of being downright treasonous. They are responsible for the credit rating of these United States having been drug down by their refusal to generate some revenue to help balance the budget.

Any Republicans who have not recanted their signatures on the Norquist pledge should be held accountable at the polls.

A MINORITY VIEW: HIGHER MINIMUM WAGE
In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama proposed raising the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $9 an hour. That would be almost a 25 percent increase. Let's look at the president's proposal, but before doing so, let's ask some other economic questions.

Are people responsive to changes in price? For example, if the price of cars rose by 25 percent, would people purchase as many cars? Supposing housing prices rose by 25 percent, what would happen to sales? Those are big-ticket items, but what about smaller-priced items? If a supermarket raised its prices by 25 percent, would people purchase as much? It's not rocket science to conclude that when prices rise, people adjust their behavior by purchasing less.

It's almost childish to do so, but I'm going to ask questions about 25 percent price changes in the other way. What responses would people have if the price of cars or housing fell by 25 percent? What would happen to supermarket sales if prices fell by 25 percent? Again, it doesn't require deep thinking to guess that people would purchase more.

This behavior in economics is known as the first fundamental law of demand. It holds that the higher the price of something the less people will take and that the lower the price the more people will take. There are no known exceptions to the law of demand. Any economist who could prove a real-world exception would probably be a candidate for the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences and other honors.

Karl Rove Mocks Sarah Palin Tenure As Governor

WASHINGTON -- GOP uberconsultant Karl Rove lashed out at former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) on Sunday, mocking her decision to leave office early. Rove's criticism was a response to comments Palin made at the Conservative Political Action Conference in which she suggested the poor performance of Rove-backed candidates in the 2012 elections indicates that Rove should get out of the political consulting business.

"If these experts who keep losing elections and keep getting rehired and getting millions -- if they feel that strong about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck-up or stay in the truck," Palin told CPAC Saturday, referring to Rove. "Buck up or run. The Architect can head on back to the great Lone Star State and put their name on some ballot –- though for their sakes, I hope they give themselves a discount on their consulting services."

Rove pushed back in an interview with Fox on Sunday.

"I'm a volunteer and I don't take a dime with my work from American Crossroads and pay my own travel expenses out of my own pocket and I thought she was encouraging volunteer grassroots activity and I'm a volunteer," Rove said. "Second of all, look, I appreciate encouragement I ought to go home to Texas and run for office and, it would be news if I did to have her support. But I don't think I'm a good candidate -- a kind of balding, fat guy. And second, if I did run for office and win, I would serve out my term and I wouldn't leave office midterm."

Palin famously resigned her governorship midway through her first term in office in early 2009, shortly after her 2008 bid for vice president came up short. Rove's Crossroads operation spent hundreds of millions of dollars on the 2012 elections, only to see nearly all of his marquee candidates fail to be elected.

Rove has since become a magnet for criticism from much of the Republican Party base for his more recent efforts to recruit candidates that are more palatable to voters than Tea Party favorites like failed Senate candidate Todd Akin, whose electoral bid collapsed after he stated that women are biologically incapable of becoming pregnant from a "legitimate rape." Rove's latest strategy has been interpreted by some Republicans as an effort to undermine hardline conservatives and move the party toward more moderate candidates.

Economics 101. Supply curve and demand curve. However, the curves are also categorized as "elastic" and also "inelastic." Any questions?

(It is also not rocket science to conclude that the rich care little about prices.)

BUD THE COWBOY
A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Wyoming when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.

The driver, a young man in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes, RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?"

Bud looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, why not?"

The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell® notebook computer, connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3® cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.

The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop® and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany ...

Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot® that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL® database through an ODBC connected Excel® spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry® and, after a few minutes, receives a response.

Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet® printer, turns to the cowboy and says, "You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves."

"That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves," says Bud.

He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

Then Bud says to the young man, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?"

The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why not?"

"You're a DEMOCRAT Congressman for the U.S. Government", says Bud.

"Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?"

"No guessing required." answered the cowboy. "You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about how working people make a living - or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep.”

Maybe if you would read the Bible, you would find how who Nimrod was and what he was all about instead of googling "Nimrod". You still don't know! Sorry, you lost on this one. You're not "King of the Thread" either. You're just a little old Google Trotter!

NOW DEMS TARGET WAGES OF GUN BACKERS
Democrats apparently know no bounds in their quest for gun control.

County sheriffs in Colorado say they have received emails indicating state Senate Democrats are using extortion-style tactics to force the sheriffs to provide political cover as Democrats pass a series of gun control bills supported by the Obama administration.

El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa said the Democrats are desperate to avoid the appearance of partisanship.

“The Democrats do not want to go on record as being the only party that voted for these measures going into the 2014 election,” he said.

Maketa raised eyebrows last weekend when he said in an interview with Jeff Crank on KVOR in Colorado Springs that he and other sheriffs received a series of emails suggesting a pay-raise bill was being held up until the sheriffs changed their position and supported the gun-control bills.
