You are reading page 3 of Winning...the economy under Trump. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

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.

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.

A nice article and story.

Do you really think Trump is afraid, or wants to put America first by ensuring that immigrants are an asset and not a burden on our country (like most other countries do).

It is difficult to answer your question because I am not in Trump's head. So I don't know if he is merely playing to his base when he expressed negative things about Syrian refugees, or truly believed it.

But it was clear to me that he understood nothing about the first waves of

Syrian refugees. They were highly educated (like some of the folks in the article I posted) and many spoke English. It takes money to flee a war-torn country like Syria. Who has that money? Well, that would be doctors, lawyers and engineers.

A friend of mine volunteers with refugees in Louisville. Most of his families are Iraqis who speak little English and may or may not have much education. He specifically told me that he helped few Syrians because they spoke English and were educated and didn't require much, if any help from the agency he volunteers with.

It seems to me folks like that are an asset to any country.

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.

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.

So...

So....

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.
