Daily Fail?

Damn, I knew Norway sounded too good to be real.

I would genuinely consider living in Norway. Except for the weather. And I think the booze is insanely expensive.

My very first thought was, "Why would someone from Norway move to this shiathole?"

Trump admires Anders Breivik.

My grandfather was a Norwegian immigrant. He moved to the west coast and worked a lumberjack (and that's okay) until he had enough money to purchase a farm in the midwest.  While Norway has since got their shiate together, I don't think at the time he saw many prospects in staying in the small town which name he and I bear.

Pops visited a few year back and apparently, the old hometown is gorgeous, the old farmstead is a museum of some sort, and everyone seemed to be happy and healthy.

I don't think dual citizenship is a possibility but I would definitely love to go back and see the home country.  I guess I'm pining for the shiatehole.

They're right, you know.
 
2018-01-12 09:43:21 AM  
Yeah, but they do have a big troll problem and only one guy handling it...

I'm confused. Are you using that as a reference for a "shiathole" or a "not a shiathole"

Look through all the states and you'll find that Florida is Top 50 in nearly every category.

Noway is only nice because it's a homogenous nation as is my understanding of Norway.  *wink*

To shore up the numbers of Aryans?  Lotta blonde haired white folk up there in Norway.

Yeah, but Norway has lots of oil money so they can afford that fancy stuff.

Oh, wait.

Haiti is also a rather homogeneous nation. Of course, they don't have fjords. Just hurricanes and earthquakes and tsunamis and stuff.

Then why the long face, Sven?

Depression among Norwegian adolescents at record level
The number of young people taking medication to treat depression has reached an all-time high in Norway. The largest increase by far is among girls aged 15 to 19.


Depression hits half the population

Just one day after Norway was ranked as the best country in the world in which to live comes news that roughly half of all Norwegians will suffer depression or anxiety at some point in their lives. Psychiatric ailments have taken over as the country's most widespread, and expensive, in the health care sector.

Can't be too different from North American whitetail, which is what I'm having for lunch.

/very lean
//have to cook bacon first just to get grease to cook it in
///just add Montreal steak seasoning for amazing flavor

And to think Republicans thought their tax plan, giving a few extra bucks to some of the working class, would sway votes their way.  How many more Trump dumpster fires will there be before the 2018 elections?  One a day it seems.

They are only tied for 4th place overall, but they are #1 for lone gunman body count !

Tell you what, we'll give Trump to Norway.

Actually, a little further north.

Svalbard perhaps.

"Why would we move to your shiathole of a nation?"

My Viking ancestors took over England and Northern France and then moved to America. They prospered wherever chose to live.

It's great that Norway has an excellent social welfare state, but I wonder how much of that is financed by the wealth created by Oil.

Norway is one of the largest oil-producing and exporting countries in the world.  2nd biggest exporter in Europe after Russia, IIRC.

As a progressive I am a fan of Norway's social democratic state, but as a person concerned about the environment and climate change, I am not.

Canada is in the same boat.  Socially progressive, but surprising regressive on climate since they get so much money from producing oil.

If this isn't veiled racism and preference for the white race on Trump's part, I don't know what is.
 
2018-01-12 11:21:07 AM  
During her recent visit, the prime minister of Norway did an extended interview on NPR, which I heard.  She was very articulate, intelligent, and thoughtful.  All qualities that are missing in our shiathole president.
 
2018-01-12 11:21:11 AM  
Norway's oil revenues that it uses to fund most things is starting to run dry... it will be interesting how they adapt over the next 10 years.

So he wants to build a wall to impede Mexican immigration but is welcoming Norwegians with open arms?
How overtly Hitlerian do you have to get?
I've been to Norway and it's not as blue-eyed blond-haired as you might think DOTUS but whatever go with your gut and whatever makes your moronic base feel better as we fashion the harpoons.
 
2018-01-12 11:22:18 AM  
Yep. The redbars showed up just in time with some very interesting 'facts' for us to consider regarding Norway. This is why I don't pay for TF.
