    We have over 500 companies making profits off of sick people and we still rate 37th in general health and longevity and we have more people in prison than any other country in the world.

    "The United States of America has an incarceration rate of 743 per 100,000 of national population (as of 2009), the highest in the world. In comparison, Russia has the second highest 577 per 100,000, Canada is 123rd in the world with 117 per 100,000, and China has 120 per 100,000. While Americans only represent about 5 percent of the world's population, one-quarter of the entire world's inmates are incarcerated in the United States"

    Since about 1 in 10 of Blacks are in prison I wonder if there's any correlation to racism.

    Yawn... the WHO report has already been debunked over and over...

    Plus you play the ignorant race card... and express your belief that a company should only get profits if you feel it is good to do so...

    Ignorant fucking troll

    I'm not gonna' do your research for you. There's only about 1500 web sites which come up that will prove what I posted.

    One thing I haven't forgotten...Ronald Reagan. He started as a Democrat and the president of a union. When his grade B movies began to make some serious dollars he converted to the party of the wealthy and began to borrow from foreign banks to fund low taxes for them. Under his watch the national debt quadrupled and 7,000,000 citi ens became poverty stricken. He clobbered collective bargaining and lied repeatedly about selling missles to Iran. Most of his last term he was showing the first signs of al hemiers and went to Nancy and her astrologist for decisions. He outspent any other president in our history on defense and as it turns out got his SDI "Star Wars" idea from a 1940 movie he starred in. Other than that I guess he was alright.
