Healthcare just went up again...

The healthcare issue in the United States is reaching critical perportions and my "health" insurance just went up again .... almost $1,000 a month.  This entitles my husband and myself ... who have no preexisting conditions, to have a $5,000 deductable if we become desperately ill and have enter the health care system ... is it any wonder why we need to have a bit of comic relief?

I just read this and it makes perfect sense to me:

1. The Japanese eat  very little fat
       and suffer  fewer heart attacks than  Americans.

2. The Mexicans  eat a lot of  fat
       and suffer fewer heart attacks than  Americans. 

3. The Chinese  drink very little  red wine 
       and  suffer fewer heart attacks than  Americans.

4. The  Italians drink a lot of red  wine
       and suffer fewer heart attacks than  Americans.  

5. The Germans  drink a lot of beers and eat lots of  sausages and fats  
       and suffer fewer heart attacks than   Americans. 


Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking  English is apparently what kills  you.
