Nope, not made up in my mind at all ... did you know that the u.s. ranks #1 in women dying in childbirth ... All this technology and smart people and yet the hospitals can not deliver a healthy woman and child together.

This is not true.
46th lowest out of 18? not good but certainly not number 1 in women dying in childbirth.

14 per 100,000. Unfortunately I think a lot of this has to do with drugs.

The mother lives 99,986 times out of 100,000.

You're misreading the data and not looking at every detail.

A large part of that, and other rankings of a similar kind are a result of the US being a multicultural society with many immigrants and minority cultures with different backgrounds and values. Of particular interest is the large number of impoverished people admitted to the country each year, who believe it or not, are not suddenly adopting first world ways just because they're in a developed country.

You didn't like the message so had to go on attack to the source. Big Think is ranked as least biased by Media Fact Check

https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/big-think/
I simply read the message:

U.S. in Top 10 of most dangerous countries for women
#MeToo and #TimesUp catapult America into the club of world's most anti-women countries
No judgement about left or right is necessary. It's clear from that statement that they believe America's ranking is due to these Twitter campaigns, but still think the rank is legitimate. That's idiotic.

Are asylum seekers crossing into Canada illegally? A look at facts behind the controversy

Are they illegal?

"A political debate has raged over language and whether asylum seekers crossing between official points are entering Canada illegally. The term “irregular” is viewed by some as vague jargon and a euphemism. The use of “illegal” (Ontario Premier Doug Ford calls them “illegal border crossers”) is seen by others as inflammatory and dehumanizing.

Legal experts say Canada’s immigration laws are clear: “They’re not illegal border crossers,” said James Hathaway, founding director of the University of Michigan’s program in refugee and asylum law, who is Canadian, and a leading global authority on refugee law."
Canada is decent (and so is the U.S.), but they have the merit based immigration system people here claim is racist. And they enforce their immigration laws, unlike here. They also have the same population in their entire country as we do in our largest U.S. state.

What do Yemen, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Somalia and the USA all have in common?

They all made it to the Top 10 list of the most dangerous places for women.

Yeah, I was surprised too, and then reading the article, very, very saddened, because I recognized much of what was said was true, and I knew many cases of women who fit. As the article says, the biggest reason the USA made it on the list was that it ranked third, THIRD!, in places where women were most at risk of sexual violence, harassment and being coerced into sex.

So much for those xxx_hole countries south of the border, right?
What saddens me is people who read this kind of stuff, apply zero critical thinking skills, and just accept it as fact. And the worst part, they go cast a vote based on the nonsense that they read.

This is how we end up with Trump, this is how we end up with a clown car full of mostly unqualified Democrats running for office and spouting nonsense that nobody questions. This is how we end up with "Russia influenced our election" drama.

The real (not fake) news is that Russia didn't influence our election, its our failing education system and majority of low IQ voters who don't have critical thinking skills that influenced our election. We are stuck with at least a generation or two of our elections being heavily influenced by people who really have no idea how many lies and intentionally misleading statements they are being force fed every day in order to win political favor.

From the linked article:

.......the survey polled 548 experts on women's issues spread evenly across Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific. Those surveyed included academics and policymakers, healthcare staff and ngo workers, aid and development professionals and social commentators.

good post.

some people are so desperate to believe certain things that they're more than willing to ditch their thought processes to make it happen.
