This is going to be similar to the protest signs/political cartoons thread, but insteas we're posting useful statistice we can use.

Feel free to comment, question, or correct.

I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

This is for those racists who argue that it is about Greek culture:

VirtualStranger: I don't understand how that graph works.


Largeham: What is that graph supposed to prove? The only complaints that I've heard about the Greek are:

a) They cheat on their tax reports.
b) Corruption: If you want anything done you have to pass "Brown envelopes." Even the doctors have to be paid extra "off the records" if you have an appointment.
c) Goverment employees had those weird bonuses for just coming to work.

I haven't heard anyone complaining that the Greek aren't working.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

On the left, you have how much each country spends on health care per person, and on the right you have the average life expectancy.  The lines go from the country's health care spending to their life expectancy.  Of those on the graph, the US spends far more on health care than other countries with relatively little (in terms of life expectancy) to show for it.

Post by the sandman on the old forum, regarding the rich-poor gap in the US.
That said, I've stopped trying to anticipate what people around here want a while ago, I've found it makes things smoother.

I guess we should start to convince women to get better education degrees, work full time, and harder jobs.

And another thing:



Wages are per hour.
