    If you were running a business would you want success or lack of success working for you?


    Mexico = 77, Haiti= 163

    Much of Africa rates very low.

    That's a reason for a business not to locate there but not a basis for immigration policy.
    I once heard a guy talking about the middle east and he said that the people there were just as smart as we are and work just as hard. They just weren't fortunate enough to be born in a country that allowed them to take advantage of their talents and drive. If the shithole countries don't, won't or can't take advantage of these people then we should. That's a win for us.

    If the US was a business, it would never have put itself a trillion dollars in debt to give it's executives a raise.

    LOL ... thanks for another list which puts Norway at the top.


    Showing how our country is a shithole compared to theirs -- and getting shittier by the day with Trump as president.



    People at the top of the index have no reason to want to come here, and Trump is working hard to show people at the other end that other countries would be more healthy for them than the U.S.

    That's one way to work toward his goal of reducing immigration.
    Thanks from Tedminator

    It's almost like there's a bunch of "shitholes" out there, huh?

    I think Trump wants to be the guy behind the velvet rope who decides who gets in Studio 54 and who doesn't.

    How many are we on the hook for? Is it endless?

    And yet African immigrants get more educated than average Americans. Arab immigrants also rise higher on the socio-economic scale. Apparently, there are superior people coming from shitholes.
