Make Love not War
In a telephone survey of 3,003 U.S. adults conducted by Thomson Reuters - they found effective healthcare reform crossed party lines. 78 percent of Democrats were willing to pay higher taxes, as well as 64 percent of independents and 48 percent of Republicans. That's also true of most all Industrialized countries. While there's a bunch of news out about how many of the European countries are moving right - Europe’s center-right parties have embraced many ideas of the left, generous welfare benefits, nationalized health care, and sharp restrictions on carbon emissions. If we had a floor that none of "us" fell through - then perhaps capitalism would look better. Well....I would add robust financial consumer protections to the mix too.
In strange news...A poll of 15,000 women rated the world's best and worst lovers. German men topped the worst list because they were deemed "too smelly," #2 England (too lazy), #3. Sweden (too quick) #4. Holland (too rough) Americans made it to #5 - too dominating! The Best? Spain, Brazil and Italy. Home of Berlusconi! whose tag line really is "make love not war."
