Sverige

I can also help anyone with info on how to be more like Sweden and Swedes. It's guaranteed to improve both standard of living and bring light to the world.
Velkommen til board, Raven.

I've visited your country. It was, for the most part, very clean. I did not see so much trash about the railway.

Keeping the people moving, ScanRail is a good feature for your country.

However, with a tax rate of about 50% minimum, even your own countrymen complain.

In the mean time, be blessed.

Sverige again

kc5fm: You're obviously misinformed from American anti-socialist propaganda.
Actually, it's Scandinavian anti-socialist propaganda.

The folks that tell me these things are your countrymen and those living in the countries around you.

I have yet to find someone who's excited about paying taxes. You may be the first. :)

Also, these taxes are used to make us better than any other country on earth. The average IQ is higher, people are better educated, richer, healthier and better looking.

How much income taxes do you have in USA and Canada? Don't you have to pay money to go to the doctor or go to school?
And Danes are the most content people on the face of the planet. :beercheer:

In USA, I think I'm in a 30% tax bracket. My medical insurance is supplied by my employer.

When my Swedish exchange student was here, we visited a medical clinic operated by the Indian Health Service. The experience there was long lines, and even longer lines for appointments. His observation to me was that was much the same he experienced in Sweden.

If it is the same, what's wrong with the system we have now? I call the office, get an appointment, pay my copay, see the doctor, get the prescription for what ails me, and move along.

In the last 24 months, I've seen my Primary Care Physician less than six times. My wife takes the medications. I'm a former Emergency Medical Technician with enough skill left to keep me out of the emergency room. :D

As for the Kronor:

1 SEK in SEK
American Dollar 0.12645 7.90826

When I was there last the exchange rate was about four SEK for a dollar.

Obviously, the next trip is going to cost me twice what the last one did, and even more since I'm bringing my wife. I'm saving my airline miles now. ;)

I'm sure there are many good features about Sweden. I know a number of my friends comment of the cradle to the grave taxation and quickly add that they lack for nothing.

With the government taking care of you, what need is there to prepare for disasters?

I am not a survivalist but I know the government here will work speedily to overcome disaster challenges. I also know I'm responsible for the first 72 hours.

Preparedness

^^I will be happy to bring more of this eye opening information to people who want their country to be more like the greatest nation on earth, Sweden.
The eye-opening information I'd like to hear from you is the answer to my last question:

With the government taking care of you, what need is there to prepare for disasters?

Now I know Sweden has disasters. No country is immune.
Category:Aviation accidents and incidents in Sweden - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia lists the aviation accidents.

Planes can fall in the most inconvenient spots. If one were to land outside your flat, what would you do until the authorities arrived? What if their arrival was delayed by hours? Days?

That's the purpose of this board, to share preparedness information. How do things work in Sweden?
