Just a point seeking clarification. The numbers don't seem to match up. For example, "For all types of cancers, European men have only a 47.3 percent five-year survival rate, compared to a 66.3 percent survival rate for American men." Then later, "Men in the U.S. have a 57 percent survival rate [for all types of cancers] compared to 53 percent in Canada." Do American men have a 57 percent survival rate or a 66.3 survival rate? Or are these from comparison numbers from different studies?

Why then has Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, as NBC notes, "voiced support for Obama’s goal of passing an immigration reform law that provides undocumented immigrants currently residing in the United States a pathway to full citizenship." He WANTS his "most motivated, smart, hard-working people" to come north? One would think that if he saw it as a problem, he would oppose easing the restrictions on immigration.
We need to acknowledge that we are overmedicating and overtreating this generation. According to statistics at my local university -- a top liberal arts college -- roughly 25 percent of its students are on medication or receiving some level of psychiatric care. That said, we can see the real nuts. There needs to be a better mechanism for identifying these individuals, mandating evaluation and potentially removing them from society. This number is not nearly so high -- maybe 1 in several thousand.

Is Mitt Serious About Condi?

Choosing Romney meant that the GOP ceded its largest weapon in the fight against Obamacare. Choosing Condi would mean that the party would kick open the door to Obama's ever-present desire to blame the Bush Administration for everything. I like Rubio and Ryan, but either might be seen as not ready for the presidency. Jindal lost it with his rebuttal to Obama. Pawlenty or Portman means that the Romney ticket becomes known as "The bland leading the bland." That leaves us with Chris Christie. He alienates the teachers unions, but they are lost to the GOP anyway. He goes off script, but he's better than Biden in that regard. But he could handle the presidency, and he has the brutal honesty that we desperately need on the national level.
