    But "United States" is to "United States of America" as "United Kingdom" is to "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland".

    Our healthcare is one of the best in the world.

    For example, on average, there are more mammogram scanners in one state than there are in all of Canada. And the reason our death rate is so high is because of murder and auto accidents, nothing a doctor can possibly fix. And according to most health rankings, if there are two patients with the same disease, and you can only save one, its "better" to let them both die than to save the one (Which is what we do). Tell me that's not biased. :rolleyes:

    False, incoherent, or all the other negative superlatives you can find.

    Omega's post deserves a thread of its own.

    In some ways, it is also one of the most ineffecient in the world and the most inefficient in the developed world. As well as other issues, such as how just because you have a lot of mammogram scanners doesn't meant that the entire population that needs access to one has access, as large portions don't.

    nice, omega. real nice.

    our doctors try to save everyone. no matter how bad their chances are. equal chance of survival doesn't matter, we have enough manpower to help them both.
