That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

Our Health Care is World Class or at least Top 40

Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka--the 37th Greatest Mormon of All-Time

It strikes me as absurd that liberals want to put down our health care system.   They complain that we pay more than any other country and our health care is only the 37th best in the world right behind Costa Rica and ahead of Slovenia.   Well, that may be true, but is 37 bad?  Heck no.  The 37th best health care in the world is still world class.  When I was growing up a man by the name of Casey Kasem did a top 40 radio show and you know what, they played the 37th top song one time, just like the number one song.  Let’s not stop there though–Here are some other #37s.

The Billboard 37th hottest song right now is Uprising by Muse–I’m sure it’s great.

Rolling Stone rates Bob Marley and the Wailers’ No Woman No Cry as the 37th greatest song of all time.

Internet Movie Database users votes Taxi Driver as the 37th greatest movie of all time.

TV.COM rated CSI: NY as the 37th most popular show on television now.

The 37th greatest tv episode of all time is Chrylser Theatre’s “Kicks” from 1965.

Terry Kath of Chicago was named the 37th best rock guitarist by DigitalDreamdoor.com.

Topper Headon of The Clash was ranked the 37th best rock drummer by the same website.

In 1998 The Sporting News named Hank Greenberg as the 37th best baseball player of all-time.

The Sporting News called Deon Sanders the 37th greatest football player of all-time.

The 37th ranked college is The University of Maryland according to ULinks.com.

The 37th best restaurant in the world is Le Quartier Francais, South Africa according to San Pellegrino’s 2009 awards.

Beeradvocate.com rates Surly Brewing Company’s Furious as the 37th best beer in the world.

The 37th greatest Mormon is Jimmy “Super Fly” Snuka

The board of RandomHouse.com named The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder as the 37th greatest novel of all-time.

The 37th greatest television quote is  “…if it weren’t for you meddling kids! (The bad guy, “Scooby Doo, Where Are You?”) according to TV Land.

So you see, if you intend to call our health care system anything less than world class, then you need to make the same comments about a whole lot of great things.  That’s why no matter what the liberals and democrats may claim, top 40 isn’t that bad at all.

  1. Nate, I thought the US mantra was “Number one… second to none!”. Now you’re settling for the 37th place? Where’s that list, by the way? Where is Brazil on that list?
    Cecily, thank you for rooting for Rio to hold the Olympics. That would be really swell. Imagine! Our indians could charge a dime for each picture tourists wanted to take of them. That would mean a huge boost to our economy.
    Why are my comments being moderated? I now understand how Steve feels!

  2. I almost read 37th Greatest Moron instead of Mormon – sorry.

  3. Lola, I don’t moderate posts, but certain magic words like Cecily trigger moderation. I imagine that’s probably the issue.

  4. Thank you Lola for sharing my pain. I think the Injun pics is a great idea. It’s good to see you people pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps!

  7. Cecily, I don’t hablo espanol very well, but from what I’ve seen, your Spanish is awful! Stick to English, girl. I’ve read that more and more Brazilians will learn English until 2016.
    By the way, have you seen Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards? He makes some nice jokes about Americans’ being monolingual.

  8. How dare you. I will not see any movie — even an anti-nazi movie — that suggests Americans are monlingual. we do not masturbate in this country! Plus, I had four years of Spanish in high school. I would be a wonderful representative to the world as an Olympic hostess. You just don’t like pageant girls, Lola. Bigotry stinks.
