    Fox on denmark

    https://www.facebook.com/FoxBusiness...1363799847623/
    Ok i didn't know which thread to put this in without derailing anything. So... fox has an interesting take on Denmark and socialism... apparently no-one here wants to work. And imagine not being in debt for the rest of your life to take an education oh no, right? Gotta correct some stuff...
    There's too much so I won't catch it all.
    Yes. The high tax thing is true. But it's our social security network. I can take an education and not have to worry about where my next meal is coming from, we can focus on learning (and we cant study forever as they claim. There is a set limit for how long you can claim money studying. There are also requirements for passing exams and attending classes).
    I have free access to doctors and hospitals, about 80% of my shrink bill is covered for me. if I get sick I will never have to worry about paying my medical bills. If I lose my job i can get help sustaining myself and finding a new one. If I lose my home, I can get help.
    My grandmother gets help with shopping and cleaning for free, and a nurse comes to her home every morning to help with her diabetes medication.
    That's just the tax. The car thing isn't true. Though the taxes are high, they're environmental taxes. Something we care a lot about.
    The one with the muncipalieties is hilarious. I'm guessing they count everyone, not just the ones who are actually old or young enough to work cause we have the lowest unemployment rates in years.
    Anyway. I felt like I had to adress some of this bulls**t.

    Re: Fox on denmark

    Since Fox argues based on theory, rather than evidence, it isn't particularly strange that their theory doesn't actually match reality.

    It's also much easier to make a point like that - ya don't have to mess with icky stuff like data.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Re: Fox on denmark

    Generally, the way to tell that a Fox opinion host is wrong due to stupidity or outright lying is to see if their lips are moving.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    Re: Fox on denmark

    Oh I know. It's fox. But there are still people who'd fall for it. If there's even a small chance they'd read another take (you know. A qualified one) I feel like I have to give it a shot.

    Small correction. The 57% income tax is only for high incomes. The more you make the more you can give. That's socialism I guess. But generally the people who make more are fine footing a bit more e of the bill, cause the system they're paying into is the one tgat allowed them to get where they are.

    Am I remembering correctly that a few years ago Fox reported that Birmingham, UK was completely under Sharia Law?

    I don't know about that. I've heard more than once that Sweden is though, overrun by evil Muslim overlords almost... I'll take a guess that maybe that's them too..

    Re: Fox on denmark

    I've learned to take everything Fox states with a grain of salt (or 10). I love Denmark's socialism, and the fact that Denmark scores consistently high in international surveys when it comes to the happiness of its people is a great sign that it works. I would move there in a heartbeat! (I was born and raised in Holland, and we're not doing too shabby either. )

    faux news.jpg<------fake news is fake
    i keep hpping that my country will wake up someday and follow sweden or denmark or hell even norways example (three of the highest rated countrys in the world for happiness) but you know we still think that socialism is a dirty word here

    BTW i would be more then happy to pay more taxes to live in a country like denmark because in the long run it ends up being cheaper when you do the math.
