It Bears Repeating

 The portion of this post related to an international healthcare survey has been removed; it referenced a U.N. organization that doesn't exist, and the survey results can't be found anywhere else, either ... at least, not so far, by me. So, 'tis gone.
 

* * * * *
The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is a real-life business, not a government job.  Here are the percentages.


            T. Roosevelt.................... 38%

            Taft.................................. 40%

             Wilson ........................... 52%

            Harding........................... 49%

            Coolidge......................... 48%

            Hoover............................ 42%

            F. Roosevelt................... 50%

            Truman........................... 50%

            Eisenhower................ .... 57%

            Kennedy......................... 30%

            Johnson.......................... 47%

            Nixon.............................. 53%

            Ford................................ 42%

            Carter............................. 32%

            Reagan........................... 56%

            GH Bush......................... 51%

              Clinton  .......................... 39%

            GW Bush........................ 55%

            Obama..................... 8%


      This helps to explain the incompetence of this
administration: only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

     That's right!  Only eight percent---the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents!  And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business?

     How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one?  Or about jobs when he has never really had one?  And when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers?  They've spent most of their time in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers."  They should have been in an employment line.

There is no UN International Health Org.

There is the WHO, who fills that position basically.

That email forward has been going around for a while (since at least 2009). I cannot personally verify there is no such people or survay, but no one else has been able to find it either.
