Week 21 – Life expectancy

In Uncategorized on January 24, 2010 at 07:34

There is no news about the appeal, but it took another Dane who was wrongly accused of murdering his wife 4 years to clear his name. 4 years where he had little contact with his daughter, who was 3 years old when he was arrested based on evidence which was based on xenophobia.  Maxwell Mccord might have won the legal battle but he had to miss out a vital part of his daughter’s life for only being in the wrong country at the wrong time.

The hot topic in Denmark right now is the short life expectancy compared to other nations. It seems to be a problem for our government that the Danes only life about 75 years. They cannot raise the age for retirement which would force the citizens endure additional year in tax slavery.

Let me assure you as reader. The politicians are not thinking about quality of life when they want to fight for a better health for Danes. They want income they can spend abroad and use to profile themselves as international saviors. In fact there is a common term known as “the burden of elderly”. They want us to check out from this world as soon as we are finished as active taxpayers.

I learned that the key element for people outside the cities to remain mobile – the driver’s license should be easier to keep for people who are old and senile. The doctors should not check their patients so thorough when they are about 67 to 70, so they can remain on the roads. Maybe it is wise. Especially men die when they lose their drivers license and they are living at the countryside. They just sit in the good chair in the living room waiting to die.

But I also think that some consideration should be given to the other people who happen to be on the road. What if they are hit by a car driven by an old man unable to understand where he is? Sometime the police discover a person who has ended up several hundred kilometers from their destination just because they missed a turn somewhere.

Is it safe to have them on the road?

The answer must be Yes, if we really want to increase the life expectancy. The quality of life is gone if you only have public transport as an option and happens to live in a place where you have to take a bus as the only means of transportation. Most of us remember a part of our life where life was hard. A part of our life where we had to ride a bus instead of using our own car or a fast train.

I have to say that I would prefer that our politicians could let us live our lives as we choose to. Please increase the taxes if you want to play Santa Claus at whatever part of the world who claims that they are suffering. Please send young unemployed men out as soldiers without the proper equipment as you have done for years if you like.

But please tell the truth!

Tell that you are doing it because you as politician just want publicity like as rock or movie star!
