No evidence supports a claim that Obama is currently, or has ever been, a Muslim (radical or otherwise)
To be clear, Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian...
get the fact right
This will also discourage future drilling and research and developement.

Also what is wrong with the French helthcare system?(I ask cause I really don't know?I guess I am ignorent,lol)Canada seem to be working it out fine.
In France, physicians (and other professionals) generally work in two kinds of environments: public hospitals and private practices. 25% of physicians work in public hospitals (another 11% work in other types of public establishments). They are in essence public servants and paid an amount that is fixed by the government. Today, many physicians feel that the prestige of working in a hospital does not compensate for the trying working conditions. 56% of physicians work in private practices, and are paid on a fee-for-service basis.
The current situation is particularly strained: negotiations between doctors' unions and the funds have stalled, leaving the specialists without a convention and isolating the GP union which signed a convention in 1998. The root of the problem is that private practice physicians are strongly opposed to the setting caps on outpatient expenditures. They have always had a great deal of freedom over where they set up shop, how they practice, and what they prescribe (compared to their counterparts in other countries). Yet the bulk of their income is paid by public funds. This contradiction has become more glaring as the concerns about soaring health expenditures grew.

Opinions and talks about issues is not in any way to be taken as the basis to deem somebody a racist or hater.
Regarding Obama, he described his grandmother as a "typical white person" with "bred" in experiences. This is the definition of racism.

But she is a typical white person who, uh, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know there's a reaction that's been been bred into our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way and that's just the nature of race in our society. We have to break through it..." - Senator Barack Obama
Not only does he call his grandmother a typical white person, he claims her reaction has been "bred" into her.
Not sure if that's racist? Try switching "black person" for "white person" and talk about what black people have had "bred" into them and see how fast you'd be labeled a racist.
