    Go back and the read the posts. It wasn't me who said that about leaving a war torn nation.

    Yeah, itsy-bitsy, your reading or comprehension skills are way off!

    It was me who wrote about Syrian refugees leaving a war-ravaged area, NOT BC.
    Oh, excuse me, I mixed up posts. SO SORRY. Reply still stands, towards you Lil Nel.

    Haiti has had more than its share of natural disasters and corrupt governments who exploited their people and their natural resources. They deserve our compassion and understanding, not vitriol from a mentally ill racist and his disciples.
    You mean like the Clinton Foundation? Who used resources collected for the Haiti relief efforts to pay for Chelsea's wedding. People are more upset by President Trump allegedly calling Haiti a ****hole then by Hillary Clinton turning it into one.

    You should really check the rankings for your own country in terms of infant mortality, literacy, life expectancy, infrastructure, etc. before calling someone else's country a ****hole. Take a look at the poverty and hunger in some of our own states before calling another country a ****hole.
    Oh, really. Okay. Well, according to the UN, the U.S. is #10.

    Haiti is #163.

    Well, we all know that nobody from Norway wants to come to the US. Folks immigrant to raise their living standards, not lower them. And moving here would definitely cause folks from Norway to lower their living standards!

    It would also lower their life expectancy.

    No thinking person would choose to do that.
    You know how else Norway is different? They have an EXTREMELY difficult immigration process, thus allowing all of their resources to go to THEIR citizens. Hence, free healthcare, extended vacation time, free/reduced education fees. They aren't paying for anyone else. Immigrants would rather travel to the EU, where immigration is easier, and where they can still get perks.

    Additionally, are you aware more Norwegians live in the U.S. than Norway? I guess Norwegians would like to live in the U.S. after all. So are you calling Norwegians living in the U.S. (over 50%), non-thinking? That seems awfully disrepectful.

    Why don't you stick to the topic? This is the thread that is concerned about the economy.

    It appears that you have hijacked the discussion.

    You can move your vitriolic comments to your MAGA2 thread, for however long it lasts.

    Because I got you with facts, you want me to leave?

    For your information, that ranking includes many components of the economy, i.e. income, poverty, employment, and finances. All of which you can compare to any country.

    Also, FYI, you can't say those words, they're racist.

    Meh ... wasn't much going on, certainly no fireworks. I think the mods were just peeved that a locked thread was re-posted.

    So, I tried to fact check your claim that the Clinton Foundation used donations to pay for Chelsea's wedding, and could find nothing to prove it. The allegation came from Wikileaks, so I'm skeptical. The Clintons have denied it and here's a little excerpt from Snopes about the Clintons involvement in Haiti. You must think Hillary Clinton is an extremely powerful woman to have singlehandedly destroyed an entire country. Maybe you could learn a little about the history of Haiti by reading how they won their independence and how they were exploited by the US and other countries for slaves. You can also read about the devasting earthquake they suffered in 2010. The 8th anniversary was 2 days ago. How presidential for Trump to commemorate the occasion by calling the country a ****hole. Also, can you please post your link that verifies the Clintons stole money from the foundation?
    Did Hillary Clinton Suppress Haiti's Minimum Wage?

    Do you think it's good that a country with the resources of the US only ranks #10 in indicators? I think that's shameful. We should be in the top three, easily. Instead, we're ranked 17th in education, 26th in infant mortality, and 31st in life expectancy. I'm not sure how that brings us up to number 10, but that's what the link you posted says, so I'll go with it.
