    Tell me who you walk with and I’ll tell you who you are. Saying what you are saying is being an apologist for those that are choosing to walk next to a Racist.

    I think it is Trump, and supporters like you, who are turning the U.S.A. into a shit-hole country!

    Lazy ass Norwegians, sitting on their asses getting government benefits.

    Norway Unemployment Rate 1997-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast
    Norway's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 4 percent in the three months to November 2017 from 4.1 percent in the June-August period and in line with market expectations. It remained the lowest jobless rate since the three months to February 2015, as the number of unemployed went down by 3,000 from the previous non-overlapping three-month period to 111,000 while the number of employed rose by 6,000 to 2.659 million. A year earlier, the unemployment rate stood at 4.8 percent. Unemployment Rate in Norway averaged 3.59 percent from 1997 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 4.90 percent in July of 2016 and a record low of 2.30 percent in April of 2008.

    I understand that everyone is proud (to some degree) of their society - and in the words of Sir Walter Scott -

    Breathes there the man, with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land! Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd, As home his footsteps he hath turn'd From wandering on a foreign strand!
    But is this affection not similar to the sentiments one feels towards one's family? It is rarely objective; character flaws and misdemeanours which would engender opprobrium when exhibited by strangers are tolerated, and indeed, often regarded as lovable human foibles.

    Furthermore, I would suggest that those who imply that most Norwegians enjoy a better standard of living than most Americans are not attacking or denigrating the USA - they know Americans have much of which to be proud - they are simply articulating an opinion supported by various objective standards, such as the Inequality Adjusted Human Development Index.

    Which, in its last published ranking listed Norway 1st, Australia 3rd, Germany 6th, the UK 13th, and the USA 19th. The Human Development Index measures the potential for personal development, whereas the IHDI measures the actual development, taking into account the level of inequality in each society.

    Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...y-adjusted_HDI

    The non-adjusted HDI also ranks Norway 1st, but ranks Australia 2nd, Germany 4th, and the USA does much better at 10th, while the UK does worse at 16th. This represents the potential, but the killer seems to be inequality.

    Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...elopment_Index

    So it's not just a plot hatched by 'Commie Americans' that Norway enjoys a much better standard of living than does the USA - it is a matter of researched and recorded fact. Now, I am sure there are many reasons - geopolitical and sociological - for this, but the end product is measurable. So the question of why Norwegians would want to live in the USA - other than for family reunion or business reasons - stands.

    The question you should ask is why did people vote for him.
    Nope. Trump got elected because more people voted for him than his opponent. Yes, there were thousands of reasons why. You might be shocked to discover that many of those reasons had nothing to do with CNN, the media as a whole, or someone who may or not have called Mitt Romney a racist many years before.

    Using your logic, you had just as much to do with Trump getting elected as any of the people you previously didn't like and now blame for getting him elected.

    Trump is plain spoken and correct. Why would we want unskilled uneducated people from underdeveloped countries to immigrate to the US to become a drain on our systems? I know liberals think we owe it to people but the fact remains, we do NOT.

    See? Trump knows exactly who he appeals to with his disgusting rhetoric. Word of his grotesqueness gets out and they come running.

    Incidentally, welcome to this thread.

    Time out. I have a question:
    So, are we supposed to remain silent in the face of such things for when what you and others deem a "real wolf" comes along.....even if we see it where y'all don't?

    Does that seem rational to you?
