Fucking Norway? Who the hell has a problem with Norway?

They do have a very large population of Muslims in Scandinavia. Their cultures often clash and most Mulsims refuse to intergrate. This might be where that friction lead to.

Well,

I still have a complete tin-foil-hat theory on the House of Oldenberg, and their ties to either the Masons, or the Illuminati.

What I can't figure out is that CNN is giving advice on some random guy's retirement plans and HLN is reporting on Casey Anthony and not reporting on this at all? What's up with that? And when are we going to move on from Casey Anthony anyway?

Norway isn't important to Americans.

Well, maybe not to liberal whack jobs. Fox news is reporting so obviously conservative whack jobs care.

Irony is, probably only one out of every 10 conservatives could point out Norway on a globe.

Honestly, I get it confused with Sweden all the time. But then I also get New Hampshire and Vermont confused and they are states in my own country. Something about long skinny bodies of land, my brain has a block against them.

It's not you, it's the education you get. It's more focused on other things than geography.
