Some facts. Parenthetical and trailing comments provided by TheFundamentals.
Attorneys per capita (higher is better):
US of A 265
New Zealand 391
United Kingdom 401
Who says we can’t learn from the Frenchies?
2008 US of A Household Income (by gov’t category):
Why don’t we elect more Americans of Asian background to political leadership positions? Why doesn’t the public policy of the US of A adopt certain cultural standards, values and fundamentals of Asian Americans? Americans are big on results, right? Why not emulate the top group?
Consumer Price Index (lower is better unless you're a politician):
1947 $ 37.50
Ask yourself why politicians don’t speak to the above numbers. If you paid $37.50 for it in 1947, you paid $316.20 for it last year. Deficits = Debt = Destruction. Borrowing/printing money costs Americans a lot. Price stability matters. Rising income numbers mean nothing when prices rise at these rates.
2006 Birth Rates to Unmarried Women (you figure out which is better; note the Asians)
