USA and even "rich" Norway display a ridiculous standard of living.
03/18/2011 | westernculture

Posted on 03/18/2011 8:19:55 PM PDT by WesternCulture

Why do Americans drive around in Fred Flintstone vehicles and what's the underlying problem behind the vast majority of Brits buying Fords and Vauxhalls year after year? Why does your tap water taste like sh*t and why don't Italians tear down buildings that no longer are in use?

What's the idea of building a house out of cardboard?

Denmark has the highest wages on Earth. Norway can compete. OK. But why is it that every time I visit our dear western neighbors I feel sorry for people driving wrecks instead of Volvo V70s?

Is the V70 a far too sophisticated vehicle for your marijuana-inflicted brains?

Get a grip.

Grow up.

You have a nation to run.

Please visit Sweden once in your lifetime and study how civilized people live and work.

In case you're healthy and normally furnished in the brain department there's no reason why you should not drive a nice Volvo/BMW/M-B/Audi/SAAB/Cadillac and own a nice home.

Feel free to criticise me.

Yeah, but at least we don’t have crappy IKEA Furniture. ;)

You’ve really stirred a hornets nest, here.

Mine own winter houses in Florida.

I'd say they have your friends beat, sport.

“Drunk again, I see...”

- Nope.

This time it’s “for real”..

(But I admit to having been drunk while posting on other occasions)

Are you drunk? Your post smelt of elderberries.

Volvos are only modestly upscale and have poor resale value here. You’re taxed into oblivion and likely live in an 800 square feet or less hovel.

Report yourself to your Muslim overlords for imediate Sharia compliant punishment. You are allowed to drive yourself to Malmo in your Volvo for adjudication. Do not pass go and do not collect $200.

Let's quit pretending, folks, we don't know what the Fred Flinstoner vehicles on our roads are!

I own a nice car and several TVs (one of them a 50” plasma) and I often go abroad for holidays.

All of that applies to me as well. What doesn't apply to me is your snotty, superior braggadocio.

At lest our vacation homes have indoor plumbing. We also have a lower suicide rate.

If the average American family each purchased two of these on 5 year notes they would be spending 25% of their income on them. This is, of course, before fuel, maintenance, insurance and government fees. But hey, let's all get a couple.

That’s one of the strangest posts I’ve ever seen.

I have been to Sweden-——it’s great,but I still love the USA.

Here in Texas I have lots of friends who own several houses. Oh, did I mention a lot of them own ranches that encompass thousands of acres? And...we have oil.

How many of your friends own oil wells?
