I've yet to hear why that has not turned Copenhagen into Baltimore.
OK I'm game. Here you go. This is their platform. From the very link you posted.
"For me, it is becoming increasingly clear that the price of unregulated globalisation, mass immigration and the free movement of labour is paid for by the lower classes".[38]

I.e. They are aligned with Trump's platform, not American Democrats. Time for Baltimore to vote with Trump for a life like Copehhagen.

That is a lie.

That quote was by Mette Frederiksen, not Frank Jensen.

By the way the *****-modding in this thread is unbelievable. And liberals wonder why the entire country thinks the media is biased...

C-D needs to grow up.

I don't get the relation between so many of my posts being scratched....and "media bias", but that is probably fodder for another thread.......

At the same time the off-topic stuff seems to be to be what needs self-moderation.

The "entire country" dislikes Congress. The "entire country" wants more gun control (a vast majority)...the entire country think lots of thing....often wrong.

Speaking of Baltimore, this is an opportunity for one of the most famous sons....

"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard. "

"No one in this world, so far as I know - and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help me - has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people."
H. L. Mencken

The idea that people are different and not binary seems to be a tough one......

The person below the highest corporate offices in the land doesn't get a chance to weigh in on globalization...

Why no give an opinion on what caused much of the misery? That being "property rights" - which include allowing illiterate people to sign away their mineral and timber rights forever for pennies and acre???

The "socialists' here spoke out against the Robber Barons.....based on what you seem to be saying, you'd be with the Socialists and against the Globalists???

There is really no middle ground. Even the Saudis give all their people a portion of the common resources. We don't. We allow a contract to entitle a corporation to destroy thousands of square miles and own virtually all of the resources or rights to such. These contracts allow for ANY action to get to the resources....that is, if they have to cut away farms, mountains, streams, etc. that is all allowed.

Everything isn't better there, that's hilarious. I mean unless you like having the Government pretty much run your life.
I would as well.

Iíve never been to Lexington, but Iíve spent a fair amount of time in Louisville, and much more time than that in Denmark.

There are great neighborhoods in Louisville like the Highlands, Cherokee Triangle, Bonnycastle, etc. that are adjacent to or near all that Bardstown Road offers and are also close to a number of parks.

Irish bob is right that the Danish government doesnít Ďrun your lifeí...certainly nothing like North Korea...but it does intrude more that I prefer.
