    That's like saying no-one else in the USA has a pair of pants like yours, so if you're ever tried for murder, you have no peers to make up a jury with.

    You are comparing apples and oranges sir. Dont be disingenuous you are smarter than that. You know that no other country has the right to bear arms OR gives its citizens so much power to defend themselves. There is no comparison period.

    No it doesn't
    Only inconsistent data recording or unreliable data collection would do this
    You have no clue about statistics do you ?

    Have you any experience in math/statistics beyond high school ?




    Yes absolutely Sweden is
    Absolutely Norway and France are too:


    "U.S. poverty rates higher, safety net weaker than in peer countries..."


    Attachment 67276218


    U.S. poverty rates higher, safety net weaker than in peer countries | Economic Policy Institute


    Notice the presence of Norway, Sweden and France ?

    Now who's "kidding". What do you have as a list of "peer countries" - other than your own, highly parochial, opinion ?





    See the above list.

    If you dispute the above list, give your own list of "peer" countries...or admit your criteria for one is a private matter between you and yourself.
    A good comparison for Sweden might be ONE US state. We have states bigger than Sweden. Same for France. Same for Norway. Comparing one small country to a giant continent wide country is foolish, and not accurate. Crap, California alone has a bigger GDP than all of those countries combined. Compare apples to apples, and oranges to oranges.

    So, sorry, you fail on every point. I should have suggested it earlier, but I was waiting on you to make the correct comparison. But since you didn't, I'll go ahead and help out.

    The USA is actually almost an entire continent. Since 95% of Canadians live on that border, let's include them. So consider the USA for all intents and comparisons the North American continent.

    So the best way to compare the USA is to other continents. If you include ALL of Europe then include Russia and Eastern Europe along with it. Or compare the USA to ALL of Asia, or compare it to All of Africa or All of South America.

    And then account for differences in culture, differences in economic systems, and history.

    That could be an interesting discussion. But comparing apples and oranges is fruitless...... pun intended.

    No the whole USA

    By your criteria the USA is without peers

    That is wrong and contradicts country comparisons that DO compare the USA with other similar (or peer) countries


    ...you fail on every point. ...
    No, YOU do and what's more evidence supports that
    You have nothing to substantiate your opinion with
    Nothing but you personal opinion, which is worthless


    You've never been to college and submitted a paper have you ?


    ...I was waiting on you to make the correct comparison....
    Sorry guy but you don't get to say what "correct" is in this context

    Others do and invariably they compare the US with "peer countries" as supportive evidence shows

    And you have NOTHING but your own, worthless, opinion

    The USA is actually almost an entire continent. Since 95% of Canadians live on that border, let's include them. So consider the USA for all intents and comparisons the North American continent....
    What about Mexico ?
    I mean you DID know that Mexico was part of the same continent as the USA ?


    So the best way to compare the USA is to other continents.
    So a continent like Australia (inc New Zealand) should be compared to Canada, USA and Mexico combined?
    That makes no sense at all

    Stupid idea - can you quote anyone who shares such a stupid idea ?


    So enough of your little parochial ideas and focus on what other people and organizations, who've actually published peer reviewed papers, think.

    In the same way that the USA accepted North Vietnam's "surrender", then go the hell out of the fight.


    Must be great having such a criteria for "surrender".
