For the health of it

File this one in the category of "facts to confound your patriotic, flag-waving friends and family," especially when they trot out the tired canard that goes, "well, America is still the best place on earth to live," which inevitably follows any mention by you about quality of life in other places on the globe.

To the "true believers," there is very little room inside their brains, riddled by talk radio, for information bathed in reality and pregnant with facts. Most likely, they'll have to resort to the usual ad hominem attack, or Euro-bashing that is a favorite activity of the Faux set.
