Well no matter where the money end up the Swedes are still giving the money in the first place, that must count for something. They are giving their hard earned cash to help.

If you can`t see the small gestures then you aren`t looking or you choose not to. There are Swedes who every week feed immigrated and native homeless people by putting up stands on the local squares. People take time out of their week and from their families to arrange events for young families like doing theater, teachers who help struggeling students with homework or language studies. In my area a refugee center was opened, local Swedes flocked to the place giving warm winter cloths and their kids gave their loved toys away. I don`t have the same views as you do when I see this weekly.

What an absolutely bizarre statement to make? I have no interest in arguing with you and I can only speak from my own experiences, both the good and the bad.

Giving money and clothes etc... is great. Going out of your way to help someone is better in many cases.

I,m guessing the Swede was drunk as usual,fell into the water,floated by the guy and snagged him with his belt buckle and they both ended up on the shore.

A truer word was never "spoke"...

Everybody knows that ancient Swedish laws concerning the saving of life has always meant that the saver has the responsibility during his/her life to support and care for the "savee" and his/her immediate family and extended family no matter where they are and even if the "savee" is an immigrant from a Third World country.

Those ancient Swedes being the bad people they were even predicted the eventuality of Third World countries and the loathsome creatures that created and abide within them...Ergo the Orient! huh.gif

So, that belt buckle scenario is about as true as it gets! laugh.gif

No Swede in his/her right mind would help another person in need.

They are a bad group...you best stay away!
