Going to lose my pension

In culture on May 31, 2018 at 14:21

I have saved a lot of money in pension funds. Now where GDPR is there, I get all such strange letters asking me if I still want to be registered. Then they write up and down about a lot of strange things. I do not understand this legal stuff, so whenever I see a letter mentioning the European Union I must assume that it is something that supports the corrupt politicians down in the European Union and let the mails be unanswered.

As I understand it the pension funds then have no other choice but to delete me and confiscate the money for themselves. I have to suffer the loss because I am not a lawyer but in my mind and daily life I get to speaking angry about the European Union and that is a small comfort.

Something rotten in Denmark

In business culture on May 12, 2018 at 07:46

The Atea bribe case is about to be settled in court.

The background is that Region Sealand made an agreement where they created an account where they could stack money into at Atea so they could buy things without being dependent of the strict budget rules. At public offices they can risk cuts if they do not use all the money they set aside during a fiscal year. Because then the politician would say “They did not use all their money. They need less next year.” So if they had nothing to use the money for, they asked for a fake invoice so they could get important stuff next year.

A lot of money piled up at that account which everyone knew about. Some of the money were used for study trips abroad so the public servicemen could learn about new technology. Then some of the people who used to work for Atea moved to a new firm and the trouble began. Because the new management at Atea believed that the old employers had agreed to party the account away in exchange of getting orders to the new firm. The new management did not like this special account but they decided to close it down secretly because a lot of hands had gotten their hands dirty. That was until the new firm got a large order.

Suddenly almost every firm in the IT-business in Denmark involved in the tender did sent the same complaint with the same wording. It was revealed that not only Atea but also the rest of the firms shared a people among the shareholders. So while it looks like that the Danish IT-business have free competition but in reality a small group of people control everything.

So regardless if the trial shows that someone was bribed, the question remains. Do we taxpayers pay too much for public IT-projects when a small group of people control the entire business?

The loopholes the rich have but endangers us common people

In justice on April 27, 2018 at 06:14

In Vermont, they now release a young man who planned a school shooting. It was some kind of legal stuff, which prevented them from convicting him from his planned actions, which he had detailed in a journal, you still can find online if you search hard for it.

The problem with this case is that it took so long to take him into custody. Him parents did at an early point discover his plans but instead of going to the police, who could have helped them putting him into a state hospital where real medical expertise would have been to his disposal combined with the fact that such places are fenced off and they also have straitjackets etc. so he would have been kept there, they made the choice of a private residential treatment center when he was so close to reach the age of 18, where he was able to sign himself out.

To make matter worse, the specific treatment center was founded with help of former employees of Turn-about Ranch now known for the murder case.

Where teenagers arriving at Turn-about Ranch are forced to sit in a stone circle exposed to the heat in Utah, the students arriving at Ironwood Maine are forced to sit in a stone circle trying to keep the fire going to keep them warm in the coldness of Maine until they have made the confessions, the parents expect them to provide under the stress and pressure, they have hired the employee to provide to their children. I have no second thought using the term “torture” about this treatment. Had we treated one of the insurgents we caught back when I was in the service, we would have faced a court-martial when this treatment became known to our superiors.

But the counselors at Ironwood Maine never addressed his plans about the school shootings. How qualified were they? We know that it in fact was another former victim of Ironwood Maine who made the choice of going to the authorities. It was not the employees at Ironwood Maine. I am not saying that they knew. I do not believe that they are qualified in other aspects than bullying the teenagers they have in their custody.

Why are Maine not investigating them? We have to remember that a former employee of Ironwood Maine were arrested charged with four counts of gross sexual assault. This should have led to tighter supervision with such a residential treatment center.

In the school shooting case the teenager charged with the school shooting attempt signed himself out once he turned 18 becoming legal adult of age. The combination of him not having been treated for his real problem added with the post traumatic stress from the treatment at Ironwood Maine made him a real threat to the Fair Haven Union High School. Had a former victim of Ironwood Maine not alerted the authorities, it could have ended it with a tragedy.

What remains in this case beside giving the wannabe school shooter real treatment is to look into all those private treatment centers. Remember the Affluenza case? The luxury rehab the parents were allowed to buy for their son, did not seem to help, so now he is serving time instead. If this wannabe school shooter had poor parents, the high school students would have felt more secure. Local authorities speak of an environment of fear. Many students remain home instead of going to school while they are treatment for anxiety issues related to the threat against their school. Of course all these young people living in fear will boost both the medical industry and a lot of private treatment centers but it should not be so.

So close the loopholes allowing parents to choose out-of-state treatment places, so each state can monitor local treatment centers closely and give the local school district space to develop their own treatment systems for students who need it.

And finally address the source of how school shooters start out. Hit hard on bullying attempts. No school system in the world should allow students to be marginalized. In Denmark we have friday bars at the school where students can drive beer or wine after school, so they at least have this motive to attend school. In the Friday bars students open up and start talk, giving others an insight and understanding of their lives.

I am parent myself. No parent should ever fear or experience a school shooting at the school their children attend. It must stop now.
