This is just beyond stupid

Save the Children Report on Girls Ranks U.S. 32nd Out of 144 Countries

The United States has finished behind countries including Algeria and Kazakhstan in a new ranking of the best and worst countries in which to be a girl.

The report compiled by Save the Children suggested Sweden was the best place for young females to live. Niger finished at the bottom. The U.S. was rated 32nd on the 144-country list.

Not all rich countries are doing as well as they could for their girls, according to the non-governmental organization. It singled out the U.S. in particular.

“There are things where we do not shine on the U.S. side,” said Carolyn Miles, president and CEO of Save the Children. One major example she pointed to was female representation in national government.

I cordially invite Emma and her cohorts to move to Algeria and Kazakhstan and enjoy the glorious life for women there.

    Sunds like a wonderful idea. I’d kick in $20 for her one-way ticket.

    “Save the Children” was a fictitious organization in the old HBO movie “The Second Civil War.”

    OT (sort of) Not sure how long this will remain up. YouTube says”
    This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing. It’s the Trump response to Hillary’s latest ads.

    LOL – Not sharing truth is considerate nowadays, I guess.

    Sweden? With all the rape gangs forming, I doubt that even an NGO or UN council will long list them first.

    Don’t blame Margolin for bearing the message, blame Miles & her cohorts for a tendentious ranking system.

    Something I noticed many long, long, years ago. There were a lot of “feminist” sites that reported regularly on Islam and its abuse of women – until 9/11/2001.

    After that, they mostly shut up. I’m not sure why, but my basic suspicionns are: 1 – they were scared bigtime. 2 – they hated Bush so much they’d rather see women suffer than say anything.

    Flip a coin.
