    Happiest Countries in the World 2017

    Wow. According to the alt-right many of these countries have been turned into hellholes by refugees/immigrants. How can they be so happy?

    Yeah...not surprised the US is not on the list. We are not a big group of happy campers right now. Hard to be happy, when you are watching your country tank.

    In 2007, it was 3rd. It is now, 19th.

    We have been told we should be unhappy (something I have always thought was odd and a neo republican thing as reason to vote for them, in spite of reality), by the current President and his supporters, from the start of Great Recession and throughout Trump's entire campaign, even though the economy was getting better.
