My OR co-workers from the UK stated they simply did not have gun shot wounds there in their ER. At the time we had a 15 year old with a gun shot wound. The trouble is when Piers says "UK" I feel like people think that may be talking about a UFO or another planet.
If you listen to the right wingers not only do they think America is a great country but they think it is the only country and when anyone says anything about Europe they act like its just silly info.
One talk show host here in San Diego said if he ever went to England he is going to go there and spend American dollars. I guess he had not heard of the pound or the Swiss Franc or the Euro. He said American money is what everyone wants and that will trade anywhere. Just this morning another conservative host was giggling about facts from the Daily Mail about less violence in Europe.
