 Johnny on Taxation > Total taxation as % of GDP 1201 days 23 hours 33 minutes 51 seconds ago In 2005,the US per capita tax burden was around \$2,000. Let's say the average household is 5 individuals, maxing their annual taxes \$10,000. The annual medical insurance premiums will also run about \$10,000 per year, thus hiding huge additional cost to American taxpayers which is included in the tax payments of most other countries. Adding this extra cost to the US computation of tax as a percentage of GDP would move it from #17 at ~30% to #1 at 60%. Even if these medical costs are paid by employers, they are still an additional cost, equivalent to a "taxation" of the employer. And even if you hiked the per capita tax burden to \$3,000 (household tax \$12,000) the US sits around equal #1 with Sweden.

Many young girls were raped a multitude of times by numerous assailants over a period of hrs or days. I assume that the rapes have been individually included in the stats in proportion to charges on which convictions were obtained, so one girl violated by 10 men twice each would count as 20 rapes. Here is another article on an international trend, htp://97.74.65.51/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=6161, and one on the problem in Norway (which comes in 18th in this list http://www.brusselsjournal.com/node/4274.). Political Correctness just for the sake of it (in my book the worst cancer eating away at society), prevents the release of information such as statistics on the ethnicity of offenders here, but I would suggest a large number would recognise thenselves as being from a non anglo ethnicity, whether first or second generation Australians. There is a real problem in Norway as well, as no doubt France and other places, and most can be directly linked to migrants. Sydney with it's multicultural & cosmopolitan society is a hotbed. The "Australians" are told to be tolerant but the migrants fail to assimilate and simply build up there own communities. The problem seems to be getting worse with the influx of many "refugees" or migrants from Islamic countries in the middle east and North Africa (Sudan). Australians are told to be tolerant and accepting as people from different culture, religious and ethnicity, (and often from rough dangerous lawless war-torn countries) come in and in many cases bring their attitudes and values with them. There have also been highly publicised rapes by visiting military from different countries (US and others), touring sportsmen and tourists. I am not sure what the answer. It is generally not as bad as the stats may show. For young girls or women, tourists or locals, I would say don't be too trusting too soon, don't be naieve, use caution & common sense. Stay with friends, don't get too drunk, don't stay out too late.
