I heard Sweden is socialist and communist. They have many entitlements like free health care which makes them miserable commies.

How much of the money that you earn do you get to keep?

Personally, I don't want to live in an "equal poverty for all" country which is what the US will be if Osama gets elected.

Answer!

Sorry guys, had to sit down for dinner with my family. I have a beutiful wife and two strong sons 8 and 4 years old.

OK!
1. Sweden is not a communist land and have never been.

2. Sweden is now ruled by a right wing goverment who have passed a number of laws to make it more worthwile to work.

3. Yes, to a degree Sweden does seem like a place where everyone is equal poor. ( I don´t like that part )

4 Guns! We have strikt rules about guns. I think our regulations are similar to those of Canada. Hunting license by exam. Sporting license only by approval of the shootingclub you are a member of ( and you have to have been a member for 6 months and qualify for gold medal shooting series ( handguns ). And then you only get a license far a .22 handgun. You have to wait another year to get a licence for something bigger.

Shotguns can only have 2 shell mag capacity. This is very annoying.

5. No we have no polarbears running around in our streets.

To be continued....

Answer continued...

Hello again,

Had to prepare a bath for my youngest.

However....

6. What doas Sweden have that is good and perhaps known to you amaricans?

- Volvo, they are really nice cars. ( owned by Ford by the way )
- ABBA, everybody likes ABBA.
- Carl Gustav and Husqvarna Rifles preferbly in 6,5 X 55
- Ericsson mobile phones
- Aimpoint sights
- AT-4 anti tank missiles
- Mora knifes, not good looking but very dependeble.
- Ace of Base, good looking swedish women
- Actually, swedish women are very attractive
- We have lots and lots of land. Land where you can walk for a week and not come across any civilisation.
- The icehotel in Jukkasjarvi

We have more good things of course but for now I have to check my eldest son, he is doing his homework for school.

As Arnold S. used to say: I´ll be back....

You may see an influx of snobby rich CEO's and politicians from America once our economy collapses. If you find yourself in the company of one of them please grab a large heavy object and club it in the head like a baby seal.

This is not specifically a question about Sweeden but more of a European question. In the US, we always hear about the high taxes, etc in Europe which are used to pay for things like national health care.

What I've always wondered about is how gross wages compare in the US and Europe. In other words, do Europeans have a higher gross wage than conterparts in the US to compensate for higher taxes? I used to work for a company that had their worldwide headquarters in the Netherlands. It was something I always wondered about, but never asked anybody even though I dealt with Europeans all the time.

Anwer.

You can carry a knife in the woods or if you need it when you work ( eletrician and so forth. But you can´t carry a knife in town.

Swedish bushcraft is well developed, we do have a lot of land and vast areas of very good huntiggrounds.

Sweden is larger than Texas and we only have 9 milion people living here.

The primary hunt is the Moose hunt i october. But deer and wild boar is also very plentyful.

I do think Sweden have too many laws and regulations. Our freedom is not what it seems to be. But I guess there are worse contries to live in.

Regards / Peter

More about Sweden

There are some upsides to this country.

All children gets free lunch in school ( good healthy food )

In my sons school they also get breakfast an afternoon snacks ( fruit or sandwich )

Daycare is offered to all children whose parents work. Cost: 130 dollars a month. ( gets cheaper when you have more than one child )

Standard vacation from work is minimum 5 weeks per year. ( paid vacation 100 % wages )

I will be back with the downsides with sweden ( there are many of them )

Yea, rich is always nicer than somewhere in the middle. But it's more fair then to call it equally middle class or something (Not that actually agree on that either since I only make half of what your teacher gets).
