    I watched Oprah my whole childhood from the 1980’s and 1990’s, then to become an adult in mid 90’s and continued to watch Oprah till she went off mainstream television. I feel like Oprah was like a mother to me. My own mom kinda gave up on me when I was quit young. I know for sure Oprah’s teachings on her many shows has helped me grow into an exceptional adult and now an exceptional mother (yes I can say that because it is true). I owe a lot to Oprah. If only she knew that she had this role in thousands of lives, just like mine. Thank you Oprah!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is my problem. I was meant to be born in Denmark.
    I was just telling one of my fellow 'Muricans , he actually thought our way of life is the best. Then I broke it down for him by using the Danes and the Italians as examples of the best quality of life. Americans try desperately to not pay taxes. Yet if you keep make three stacks of poker chips and start with taxes... the two topple over Americans taxes. The their stacks basically stop there as to where the American stack of poker chips keeps getting added to by car insurance, health insurance, Bill's for nice clothing and cars. A lot of expense goes to attorneys for divorce and funerals and schools are expensive if you want the best
    Just way over topples the two country's costs. Then Italian workers get a 3 hour lunch, 84 paid holidays a year, not exact on that but close, the husbands get maternity leave also....paid by the govt. The factory owner asked if they mind not making as much as they could if they didnt take such good care of their workers and their attitude is how much money... 5 million or ten million... that 5 million is not missed and look at how we are all happy and dining and healthy and making love . Disease and divorce rates are super low. Crime is laughable.
    I love every Dane I've ever met. Never met a crappy attitude.
    Here in fat Oprah land we want it all for our selves and as a whole do not work for the greater good. We do not care about the bigger picture. Get your own. I worked hard for mine... there are exceptions, I'm not being black and white in my rant.
    This is what people call socialist or communist, everyone has to pay to live
    Bill Clinton said this in an interview after his impeachment... about 4 or so years into Baby Buschs reign of...anyway he said he's happy to pay a million dollars to his country every year. It's part of America to take care of each other. And paying higher taxes than that person who makes 20 to 50 a year is the cost of freedom. Smart man. Too bad he's.....anyway.
    Dont u just cringe at the way Oprah is basically acting impressed with the tiny living space then steals their bread
    She is truly Oprah Winfrey negro woman of the south. I just love the way she kicks off her shoes and lets it all hang out. Shes a nice gal.

    You should see us Americans around food - we go nuts! We are ruled by monopolies in business and politics. American consumer does not negotiate for anything, we buy whatever it says on stickers, we vote for whatever it says on a baseball hat or a pin, it is so easy. Average American gets ticked off about smallest inconvenience--riding bikes to work is like WHAT! plus most bicycles may not hold our weight anyway. We are pretty much scared of everything so it is hard for us to try anything new, and even when we do try something new we have a healthy population with extra muscles in their mouths to tear people down. the new thing we have now is to look at everyone with suspicion to protect whatever we are protecting at the moment. Leaving babies outside?? no way! we have human-animals everywhere. Indoors is our place, drink beer, watch games and blame everyone else about our mediocrity. To feel good we watch hero movies. Every store is equipped with state of the art security so that we don't steal helps us to stay out of jail. Most of our calls are monitored for quality control purposes! (like someone will call back and tell us how to speak with good grammar). We like it the way we are, you go ahead enjoy your free health care, we like our free....(I forgot what it is).

    I visited Copenhagen few months ago from USA, I have no idea why people are so happy there with 50% tax. Everywhere police is ticketing parked cars and 1 minuets parking violations and you get $100 tickets. All signs are in local language and tourists are favorite target for police tickets.
    Everywhere local people are sitting outside bars and drinking alcohol. I don’t understand what kind a happiness they are getting through alcohol.
    Everything over there almost 4 times expensive than USA and whole country probably 1 month of warm weather and rest of year is cold hell.

    The Danes are the bravest and most civilized people in the world. Proof: during WW2, when the occupying Nazis ordered the Jews in Denmark to wear the yellow star, King Christian X himself wore a yellow star and decreed his fellow Danes doing the same thing. I can't find anywhere else in the world that has a people who selflessly put themselves in harm’s way to prevent the persecution of a defenseless minority, like the Danes did.
