Will you guys stop this nonsense?

He will NOT be deported to the US by us.
Mostly, he hasn't been charged with ANYTHING in the US!
If he would, it cannot be a capital offence since Sweden will NOT send anyone anywhere if they face a death penalty.

He lived over a year in a country with much more ties to the US _without_ being set on a one-way plane:
The UK

One also wonders why someone that has stated fears that a ???-acronym will tempt him with women offering sex couldn't keep it in his pants?

Ah... so many errors.... Where do I begin?

Sweden and Finland has nuclear reactors. Neither has nuclear weapons.

I would hardly say that Russia has fixed anything. Just recently they invaded the Ukraine.

See above. What in that event was rescuing?

Very true! And it goes both ways......

True as well! But that doesn't mean that there is no blame on Russia. (Well, I do mean the government, not all the people)

As only in Sweden and I think Chile, risk capital ventures can own schools and they are not obligaded to reinvest the profit.

The ever perpetual Swedish notion that always "be best in class and play by the rules".
Trouble is that no-one else is playing by the rules......

That's why we had a large school company that just said: "We don't make enough money. We'll shutdown business"
The unfortunate pupils where left for the municipality to sort out.

Hence the notion of far right wing idea compared to the US.

Why not?

As a swede, I'm offended that he is pissing on our legal system.
I say invade the house and drag his sorry as back to face the interview.

IF he would have done that directly he would have been released pending a charge (not likely)
If it would go to court he would be aquitted. He word against the ladies.

And if he now was paranoid about "honey-pot ladies" why the f-k didn't keep it in his pants?

For all the good he has done, this is just stupid.


Comment: Heavy vehicles? (Score 1) 312

by cycler (#45852733) Attached to: No. of vehicle license types I hold:

I chose more than 3 but I guess the classification is different in the US and elsewhere compared to EU.

I have six civilian licenses but I only took three different tests.
In the EU it is * BE CE DE which means that I can drive anything with three wheels or more. (The asterisk denotes A which is motorcycle.)
BE = Car/Lorry up to 3.5 tons with "heavy" trailer
CE = Lorry over 3.5 tons with "heavy" trailer
DE = Bus over 3.5 tons with "heavy" trailer

Maximum total weight is 60 tons and 25.5m.

How would you do to get the equivalent in the US?

Now I know that the US has a crappy electrical service but that's not necessary the case in other parts of the world.

During the past 20 years I can remember 2 that has affected my workplace. One was the entire southern part of the country and shortly thereafter the entire city was out.

First time the outage lasted about 2 hours and about the same the second time. (If memory serves my right)

Point is, electricity is very stable in Sweden.

The missing option would be: "I don't live in the US but still have to pay US tax.

As a country that tax it citizens where ever they are the US is in a not so admirable group. (Edit: Only two countries now days, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_taxation/ I was sure Libya was there as well. Could be wrong)

Could anyone shed some light as to why US tax worldwide?

(And yes, I do know that there are some amounts that are exempt or a tax deduction if you pay tax somewhere else)
