Fact of the Day: Finished Land

For about 700 years, Finland was part of Sweden. When the lands were first conquered, virtually all the Finnish nobles lost their lands to either Swedes, Germans, or to the Catholic Church. Swedish nobility often viewed Finland as inferior and Kings of Sweden would rarely visit.

  5. Both Finland and Sweden are now countries that are the envy of most civilised countries.............the US could learn plenty from either but there is no bloody hope of that happening under the present inbred regime.
    I read that film producer, Spike Lee,, at the Cannes film festival...Cannes being in France for the non-geographical.......ripped into Turnip Top over those Charlollesville race riots.
