    Having some interest in US politics, I decided to create an account here. As an liberal and leftist Finn, I naturally fit right in here <grin>.
    I don't expect to be very active in these forums. From time to time when US politics caught my eye, ill drop by and check what people are discussing about the subject - and express my views.

    I found this site while looking for information about the Walker/Koch prank call and how it is affecting the situation in Wisconsin - in case someone is wondering about that - yeah...

    Anyways, good day to you all.

    How can you be trouble if you won't be here much?

    Anywho, two Republicans introduced a bill in Wisconsin making prank calls illegal.

    :lol:

    I am not amused by trolls that pose in front of a burning American Flag.

    What has finnland done to help the world?

    It's the quality not the quantity.
    Awesome, that will fix it! :cuckoo:

    Well right now we are just happy standing as an example to all you other countries how to run a country succesfully, which really can't be said about the US atm.. I'm sure our 5+ million people country doesn't really reach to your great achievements, but could you please remind me what were those again?

    Pic is from an American made music video back in 1992, I think the artist was trying to tell you something.

    read a paper, any paper, or any history book. The list is very very long in a very short time frame

    The only thing it tells me is that the artist and you are assholes.

    I am sure that there are far different problems that a 5 million population country and a 300 million population country have, wouldn't you agree? Would you also agree that a 5 million population nation would be more managable than one with a higher population? Just askin....and not putting down Finland

    But you are not willing to discuss specifics? fine, I thought this was a political forum...you know, where people discuss about politics.

    Now now, instead of name calling - I thought you would come up with something witty.

    I totally agree, now if every state in US would be it's own country, would you say they would fair better on their own? (There has been some effort here to make a "united state of EU", so I'm really interested in your reply. )

    Everybody in Finland is White. You guys must freak out when you see someone of color.

    Welcome Lyte.

    Join us when you can and maybe you can share some aspect of your country with us. I hate to say it, but we in the US sometimes forget that there are plenty of other wonderful places to live in this world. I know little of your politics, so, please don't ask me to discuss that with you.

    May I ask why the troubles in Wisconsin are so intriguing to you?
