Those rich arabs ... so much smarter than Americans

 Mr Big: Qatar's leader Sheik Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani 

Qatar, the richest nation on earth, is also the fattest with half of all adults obese and 17 per cent of the population suffering from diabetes. 

Richest nation on earth, you say? 

By comparison America, which is often assumed to be the fattest, looks positively slim with a third of adults obese and eight per cent diabetic. 

And why is America "assumed to be the fattest?" I think you can answer that yourself if you think about it. Hint: Think (baaaa-bleat) "media." 

Out of a population of 1.7million, just 250,000 are native Qataris, who, in the space of just two generations have switched from a tribal existence to living in air conditioned villas being waited on by armies of servants.

In the space of just two generations, you say?

The tiny Arab state, with its vast supplies of oil and natural gas, became the richest nation in the world last year as measured by per capita gross domestic product. More here

So their oil is bringing them wealth and luxury. 

I wonder where their "environmentalists" are? 

Why aren't "environmentalists" over there blocking every inch of progress possible like they do in the United States? Oh, that's right, over there they don't have the standing to be able to sue in court ... on behalf of the public, of course. 

Nor do they have an "environmental protection" agency ... paid for by their citizens ... which is blocking and suing their productive companies every five seconds. 

Keep voting for "Democratics," folks. They are geniuses.

Did I not hear Obama say that the price of gas would not get lower even if we drilled for the oil. I made a quick check with Wikipedia, and found the following results.
1. Qatar .83 a gallon
2. Libya .64 a gallon
3. Bahrain .79 a gallon
4. Kuwait .85 a gallon
5. USA 3.84 a gallon

Humm, it seems to have worked for the oil producers.

I also forgot Venezuela is under a dollar.

I'm fairly sure those governments subsidize the price of gasoline.

But, if you have a half a brain, you realize the "government" doesn't have any money (of its own) with which to subsidize.

That money has to come from somewhere, doesn't it.

"No, no, Klown ... it's free ... IT'S ALL FREE!!!"

I did not mention it but yes some do and some do not subsidize.
