The woman who perhaps knows too much

In justice on October 24, 2019 at 18:24

Today the Danish media has focused on the trial against a 65 year old widower who was working in the department of social services from 1977 to 2018 as normal office employee.

Over a period of 25 years she allegedly embezzled 117 million DKK from the state of Denmark.

25 years ago the state of Denmark decided that poor people need to suffer, so the parliament decided that poor people on welfare should lose some of their money which would be placed on a bank account where the parties who at any given time were in government could give some of the money to projects benefiting some of the poor people who was losing the money in the first place.

Friends of the politicians could create projects benefiting poor or sick persons and in secrecy the politicians in the parliament would decide which of the projects which would get the money.

The now old woman was the person who should send the money. In order to keep the transaction as secret as possible to prevent the press from looking into possible connection between politicians and the people behind the projects which could prove possible corruption, she was the only one responsible for the transactions. None were interested in making any of the transactions public.

So along the road she took small amounts and then bigger and bigger until she geared down some years ago but she did not stop entirely and that brought her down.

She has now been jailed for almost a year before the trial and on the first day of the trial, she got heart problems. Some already allege that people in the system wants to silence her.

Regardless of her crimes as a taxpayer I am happy that her crimes led to a full stop of the secrecy involving my tax-money. Knowing what some of them have been used on during the times, I really do not care what this woman did with them as long as she got some happiness for herself and her children for them.

In the future I would prefer if people on student grants, pensions and welfare kept their money instead of letting the politicians give money to project managers behind the curtain. If a special group needs extra money, let us have the discussion in the open.

See that is a read democracy. You do not find it in Denmark, sadly.

The party Venstre will select a new leadership today

In politics on September 21, 2019 at 06:11

Denmark is facing a tough future now where the political party in Denmark called Venstre will select the team who will form the new leadership.

7 times since the millennium they have formed a government. It is a party with the best traditions. They produced the finest prime minister who never got the job: Uffe Elleman (Father of the present candidate for the leadership of the party) and the best finance minister who never got the job Peter Brixtofte, who fell from power stabbed in the back by people in his hometown.

From the government Anders Fogh I to Anders Fogh VI (He was not in charge from government IV to VI, but those governments consisted of people from his team without any outstanding achievement on their own, so we just name them after him too.) Denmark took a path which took the told on the population.

Today it is hard to tell if there ever were a time where the population in Denmark lived an everyday life with as many challenges as today. Today it is hard to tell if there anywhere on this planet exist a nation where the population face a tough daily life with as much suffering and as much hardship as the Danish population.

Do not think for a second that Denmark is a welfare state where people are covered in life if something bad happens to them. Denmark has a medical board where people every day are selected to die from illnesses, other countries can cure if the medication is too expensive for the public sector to buy.

Denmarks reputation as the happiest country in the world are defended by thousand of public servants. If you children show signs of depression, parents are reported and parents are punished with fines if the depression requires treatment at group homes, because it is claimed that depression can be contagious and because children spent most time with their parents, they are often blamed to be the source of the illness found in the children.

Inspired by Nazi-Germany who created the first anti-smoking campaign so they could produce more fit soldiers, Denmark has the most toughest anti-smoking rules if you are a public servant. In private firms you have to leave the property of the firm in order to smoke in the breaks you pay yourself, but because the roads are public and a part of the property their employer owns, public servants are forbidden to smoke at all times, even when their lunch break is not part of the working day they receive payment for. In Denmark it is not a question about making fit soldiers, it is a question about making fit taxpayers who can serve until they are 80 years of age before they can retire.

In other countries they have wars. The single citizen can decide to go out in the streets and receive the bullet or the bomb with open arms and then it will be over. In Denmark they work to secure that there is no easy way out. You should suffer. People fear that. Yesterday the news told that people now in their early twenties start to save for their pension. In the old days you started your working life trying to fulfill the potential, you based on your social heritage could reach out for. If you live outside the cities, you aim at manual labor. If you live in the towns, you can aim at higher education if your parents are wealthy because the housing situation leaves no cheap rent in the cities anymore after numerous American firms like the well-known Blackstone bought up most houses for rent and painted them so they could double the rent. Knowing that you have to work until you are 80 years of age has meant that people aim a secure jobs where they do not take chances so they risk getting sick and die before they can retire.

This is the Denmark the new leadership will have define a future or an end to. Our membership of the the European Union has meant that foreign students now own Denmark 314 millions without the intend ever to pay this money back to the hardworking Danish citizens who pay those money in taxes.

As a Danish citizen myself I find it unfair that I have to sit in my coach every evening waiting for Friday and the lottery and learn if I can judge my life a failure as life has been so far, when I do not see enough suffering in the rest of the world. They do not pay the taxes, we do. Why should they be allowed to enjoy life then? Life is unfair!

Today around 13:00, we will know how Venstre have put together the team, that should lead them. Question is then if they will work to improve the living conditions for the Danish population or skip the population in order to mingle around the leadership of the corrupt European Union instead.

Only the future will tell.

Thoughts about Felicity Huffman’s conviction

In family, justice on September 14, 2019 at 07:12

Yesterday the news of Felicity Huffman’s trial reacted Denmark and it made me think about if I have parented correctly.

I have two children. One is studying at the University and another is attending a high school.

The one in University is very ill. Thanks to the social services who sent her to treatment despite the warnings of a full team of doctors who warned the social services that removing her from her home would inflict a serious mental illness upon her, she is now suffering from Schizoaffective disorder.

She is studying the English language which has no future in Europe because due to Brexit the Europe Union will go down and become a number of countries which nothing in common not even being able to communicate properly because the populations the countries speaks strange local dialects, none care to learn. Thanks to her low grades in high school due to her illness, English was the only line of studies, she could get in to.

She wanted to study Japanese which I believe is an result of her illness. Japan was bombed into learning their place and has nothing to offer but English it became and she is doing fine living alone with her cat in a remote village when she is not studying at the university.

I could have done more. I could have hired someone to read through her high school main assignment – the SRP report – so it flaws could have been corrected. She got a 4 for it, which equals B- in the United States. It disqualified her from most universities and business schools. I question myself. Who did I not buy the help? Am I a failure as a parent?

The youngest is attending a high school. I have to say that I purchased for about 3,000 dollars of help for my youngest. They go to a private tutor who comes 2 hours per week teaching him the math, he did not get in elementary school. 10 years ago the Danish parliament decided to destroy the public school system, so parents with money sent their children to private schools. Back then I did not have that kind of money, so he had a total of 13 math teachers during a period of 9 years.

I would had bought this help unless he himself had the motivation. He got a B+ at the summer tests, so he was able to turn himself around. I have bought more than 5 liters of Vodka also, so he can socialize and avoid the isolation, my oldest have to endure as she does not do well around drunk people and is basically friendless as result of that.

So as a parent I have purchased both help and alcohol for my children. After the trial, I however question myself whether I should have settled with the alcohol and advised my youngest child to lower his ambitions and choose just letting time pass working as a SOSU-helper serving the sick and elderlies and people in Denmark choose a line of work when they cannot make it in other lines of businesses.

Am I a bad parent? Did I overstep and became a curling or helicopter parent the minute I reached out for academic aid?

Yes. Black people should fear going to Sweden

In culture on July 19, 2019 at 06:17

When you enter Sweden from Denmark, they have passport control. People are not randomly selected. People who look Danish bring money into their country. Prices for Danes looks cheap in Sweden so many Danes make one-day shopping trips to Sweden so they can get back to Denmark just in time to avoid eating in Sweden. Fermented herring which is the standard dish in Sweden does not go well in a Danish stomach.

Their legal alcohol limit when driving is so low, so it takes a week to prepare your body for the Swedish highway. They have 0.2 BAC as limit instead of 0.5 in Denmark (which were lowered from the natural 0.8 because we opened the bridge to Denmark. Allowing Swedish drivers to drink to 0.8 and then drive would have resulted in a massive number of trafic accidents, so we Danes had to endure 0.5 which is hard and has resulted in increased isolation in many families and firms when people cannot meet and socialize)

However people who do not look Danish are checked and checked down to the last detail because the immigration crisis in 2015 resulted in so massive number of immigrants that Malmoe is now the most deadliest city in the Nordic because it is located as far as possible from Stockholm as possible, so the central government in Sweden put all the bad things down there. People who properly saw themselves as Swedish patriots even set fires on houses housing immigrants. Gangs of immigrants began shooting at each other, so the Swedish police had to do something.

In this big mess, the rapper A$AP became victim. It is a stern warning to everyone not looking as coming from a Nordic country. Do stay away from Sweden.

In Denmark we have such problems too but in less amounts. The Danish government realized that you cannot fix a ghetto problem, so poor people do not belong in the cities where they can leave close to each other and create gangs. So low-income areas in the cities are torn down and poor people are re-housed in small houses of poor standard outside the cities. Denmark also realized that you cannot break the social heritage. In Denmark students can get free student grants from the states but research show that children of rich parents do better in schools compared to children who have poor parents.

So the Danish government has passed laws where the social services can force poor parents to adopt their children to foster parents if the child do well there and of course when the low-income areas are wiped out in the cities, all problems are solved.

Immigrants can be sent to isolated islands just like the one they once had in the San Francisco bay.

We have done something so it is not as bad as it is in Sweden.

Do we then recommend people to visit Denmark instead of Sweden. No. We are not finished cleaning the Danish cities so if you look at the website of the US embassy in Denmark, you can see that the warn tourist against the shootings in Copenhagen.


Was the EU-election approval for more champagne to Herr Juncker?

In politics on May 27, 2019 at 05:32

The EU-election is over. The parties who took in climate as a booster for their cause during the election moved forward. They now have 5 years to prove that the climate was more than a slogan. I hope the voters will hold them accountable when the next election will take place.

The EU-election was also a result of Brexit. The extremely harsh treatment of United Kingdom has sent a message of terror to all the citizens in Europe who wanted to live just good enough to provide for their family. We Danes have realized that there is no future for a Dexit. Denmark has to continue to struggle inside the European Union because it is too expensive and difficult to leave.

It does not mean that we like our membership just one bit. The alternative to membership is just not there.

But what about the arrogant Herr Juncker? A person who for too many years have made his drunken behavior destroy the values ordinary Danes live by.

We have lost our early retirement. In a Denmark where people in some parts like Sydhavnen in Copenhagen have an average lifespan of 59 years, early retirement at age 60 was hardly a poor deal for Denmark but it has been cancelled. The new generations will have to work until they are 80 years of age.

We just want to live like Danes where we used to gather around a table at the local bar to sort out troubles in daily life over a beer or two. Many young Danes learn from early age to settle for less. Ambitions leads to frustration and in some cases crime. The streets of Copenhagen and other urban cities are ruled by youth gangs who shoot at each other sometime hitting innocent people. Foreign embassies warn against tourists walking the same streets.

Youth gangs show that some of the young people get unrealistic life-dreams. When they realize that hard work in school brings them nothing until they have rich parents such as it is in Denmark, they enter the streets and become members of youth gangs.

20 percent of Danish youth only gets 9 years of schooling. That brings them in direct competition with people with university degrees from Romania who has come to Denmark doing the one type of work they are qualified to do when you compare our education system – collecting empty bottles they sell for recycling.

So for 20 percent of our population life is as hard as if they were living in the worst part of this planet. Their harsh life is harder compared to whatever place you can point to. For them Europe does not matter because Europe during the reign of Herr Juncker has been a plus for the large firms who choose countries where they do not have to pay taxes like Ireland. It has been a plus for dangerous truck drivers coming from the eastern part of Europe where they drive for only half the salary a Danish truck driver want. Truck drivers who drives on the edge of rules, too fast and as the Swedish police has shown – often drunk or on drugs which can keep the wake during the drive. It will be a plus for the countries who will not check the firms if they uphold the GDPR rules. It is a plus for the huge media firms who lobbied for the most strictest copy-right legislation in the world while the big media companies film in Canada instead of in the United States because they can do it there with tax-discount.

Herr Juncker has rewarded the rich and his tons of diplomats. The price has been paid by the average population in Europe.

This is something which the election missed. A Yes to continue to struggle against the harsh terms a EU membership include which barely is much better than having been to war for 60 years should normally not be a Yes to the present course where rich people are rewarded and the poor people forgotten.

I hope that the climate will be boosted by putting a tax of 15 euros on each airline ticket sold in every airport inside the European Union. I hope that the income this tax bring in will be used on lowering prices on public transport and establish new train-routes so normal people can come cheaper to school or work.

I hope that the European Union will set the percentage firms will have to pay in taxes equal for all countries so big firms cannot move their departments around among the countries to save money on taxes.

I hope that the European Union will approach countries in the northern part of Africa and demand that we put forces in to control and train their soldiers to protect their border to the south unless they simply will risk being invaded so we can get the immigration crisis under control. Poor people from Africa and the Middle East should not down in the ocean. They should be stopped in the desert and by government forces and not local wannabee ISIS troops who recruits some of the immigration and ask them to be sleeper agents in Europe before smuggling them into Europe.

I hope that the European Union will increase transport costs for goods from the outside by putting taxes on them so it will be cheaper to produce the goods here instead of across the globe. It would better for the environment and create jobs for the poor.

I have a lot of hopes but it requires that someone will challenge Herr Juncker. Otherwise people across Europe will suffer for 5 more years.
