2017 this evilness still occur

In culture on May 27, 2017 at 07:51

I love my wife. I am a man. She is a woman. That is how we have decided to live our lives. It is perhaps the correct for some and not for others. However how we live is ours business. We don’t care who we live. We don’t care how others live.

If people live together man and man or woman and woman, it is their decision. We don’t care.

However someone cares for unknown reason. I believe that is wrong. People should have the ability to choose freely when it comes to a partner if both partners are adult and agree.

I learned that people in Utah still believe that they can change how people live.

Yes. Here in 2017 people are not better informed. It is bizarre.

Also having fun for your self seems to be sinful. I also believe that is wrong. There were periods in my life where I was busy with schooling and career. Should I avoid fun? Should I seek up a person just to have fun for one night? Why not play with your self instead?

Years ago a young boy killed himself because people told him it was sinful to enjoy himself. It was awful. The church should have been sued to their last penny.

Here are some articles about this subject. It is awful reading.

Will history repeat itself ?

Around 1650 Horsens was not a pleasant place to be. Wars and taxation (almost as hard as today) meant that a lot of the citizens of Horsens simply had ran off. The entire city was marked with penury and people starved in general.

Sometime people who passed the city wondered if the city would be deserted in the end.

Then of course better times arrived. The railway came to the city. Clothing industry was founded and goods were made and sailed to Copenhagen for sale.

Now we again face industry moving out to third world countries and a couple of months ago we started to hear that they no longer wanted our old clothes as aid even when they in Africa were supposed to face hunger and war. Are we lied to? Do they face torment like we do at all when they don’t want our clothes to spare?

We can see that the jobs in Denmark are going to people born by rich people who can buy their children access to housing in Copenhagen where most of the higher education are placed. People without money are educated as nurses in retirement homes or simply hired out by cases workers to various businesses without getting real paychecks. They call it job-training or activity projects but in reality it is the poor houses modelled so they fit the needs for the businesses in the year 2017.

Are there a future for people in Horsens? I am not sure. I have asked my children to look elsewhere for their future. Of course we don’t have the money for an education in Copenhagen where the housing market is impossible for students and other poor people but if they can do a little improvement for their generation in Jutland maybe their future children could have a shot at greatness.

And that is the keypoint of being a Dane right now. Plan for many generations for come. You will become what your social class at birth places your to but there is little room for improvement after all.

When Horsens was the center of the Universe

In the time of my grandfather you had a lot of options when you were standing at the central railway station in Horsens. Of course today it does not make sense talking about a central railway station when it is the only railway station.

Back in the days (until the 1960’s) you could chose between:

  • The Horsens-Tørring railway (closed 1962)
  • The Horsens-Thyregod railway (closed 1962)
  • The Horsens-Rask Mølle-Ejstrupholm railway (closed 1962)
  • The Horsens-Odder railway (closed 1967)
  • The Horsens-Juelsminde railway (closed 1957)
  • The Horsens-Bryrup-Silkeborg railway (closed 1968)
  • The State railways (still open but hardly functioning due to the IC4 trains from Italy)

So back then the world was open. Of course now it is only possible to travel to Copenhagen and who wants that. It is there all the evil comes from. The politicians with all their upper class thinking and lack of knowledge about how we ordiary Danes live.

A funny thing btw. I can mention about one of railways. The railway towards Bryrup was originally built with a meter track. Around 1930 they decided to convert to standard track and instead of building a new bridge over the Gudenaa they covered the old bridge and made a dam instead.

Some year ago they interviewed people and found out that the bridge was still inside the dam. So they decided to digg it out and renovate it. So now the old railway bridge is there (but with no tracks on the top).

The old days were better days.

Will Danielle Bregoli replace Jemma Lucy as Turn-about Ranch most successful client?

In culture on February 11, 2017 at 14:42

Danielle Bregoli became famous when she was a guest of the Dr. Phil show.

After her stay she soon became famous on the Internet based on her catchphrase made on the show. Due to Turn-about Ranch marketing strategy being a sponsor of the Dr. Phil show the girl was sent there.

Obvious a smart girl she played the tune the so-call counselors liked to her and graduated from the ranch. The entire concept of Turn-about ranch is a flaw. Any person held in isolation will change but once the isolation is over and the person returns to the very same condition which existed before the isolation, the changes will revert to some extend maybe even 100 back to what they were before.

Many people who have been placed in simular situation might need years to complete this process often suffering from nightmares and other mental burdens due to their time there.

However some people actually capitalize from their stay.

Many years before Danielle Bregoli was sent to the ranch, a young english teenager known back then as Jemma Henley was sent there as part of the TV-entertainment show “Brat Camp”. She became the record holder for a stay at the ranch being there for almost 120 days (How they avoided violating the Visa rules, remains a mystery).

Once back at her parents place, Jemma simply held her grounds until her parents relented and allowed her to live on her own. Jemma quickly moved into a career as show dancer. Years later she started being in various TV-shows and now she is basically the strong minded young lady every English 20-something would like to be with her participation in the TV-show “Ex on the beach”.

She is by far the most successful former client Turn-about Ranch had seen.

Until Danielle Bregoli.

While viewers ate the so-called diagnose Dr. Phil cooked up as entertainment, let us look at the background of this young girl.

The family dynamic was strange from the beginning. A partly absent father and a mother soon hit by serious illness turned the mother-daughter dynamic upside-down. The mother became the patient and the daughter became the adult who had to take too much responsability too soon. It can go very wrong when such tragedy strikes a little family but it doesn’t have to.

In Denmark we have a large chain known as “Jysk” run by Lars Larsen. His mother struggled during his childhood raising her children on her own and in the end it broke her. Lars Larsen and his siblings had to fend the world on their own because everybody knew that group homes were places where abuse and corporal punishment went hand in hand. He made it. Danielle could make it.

She already have her own clothing line and a very visited Youtube channel.

She is moving in right direction. Dr. Phil and Turn-about ranchs only part in this story is that they boosted something they didn’t understand. I will not say that Dr. Phil was scammed by the broadcast February 10 shows that he has no idea of the kind of enterprise, he helped her starting.

Danielle Bregoli is only getting started. If she keeps her mindset into her business and market products using her language while staying of trouble in her private life, she could go further than Jemma Lucy.

A predicted tragedy

In culture on December 23, 2016 at 06:53

A ranch-worker lost his life at Turn-about Ranch, which is one of the asylums mentioned in relationship with the Dr. Phil show. Recently a girl was sent there after one of the shows.

A confrontable setting ensures drama and it was really a question of time before such a tragedy happened. The teenagers are not stupid but many lacks the capacity to plan for long-term goals. If you only planned for the today, wouldn’t you switch for a nice warm prison cell instead of being forced to sit in the open exposed to the sunlight? Wouldn’t you eat the crappy prison food instead of having to drink water from a creek and cold unprepared food because you lack the skill to make fire on your own? Wouldn’t you like to sleep in a warm cell instead of a cold cabin where even the sleeping bag are not working because the employees at the ranch has purposely destroyed the zippers so they can search the sleeping bags more easily? Wouldn’t you like 23 hours of privacy, TV-access instead of having people running around placing you in stress positions in a small circle of stones until you confess to whatever your parents ordered the employees to pressure you to confess to?

There was a reason for the escape attempt and the tragic attack, which lead to the death of an employee.

It was a tragic death, which was something, which could have been prevented by stopping the activities at the ranch.

Now a family lost a parent. A boy will spend many years in prison because he is an outsider from another state properly not even sharing the same belief as the people around the ranch. Not even the best lawyers can save him in this state.

This case proves once again that there is a high cost to pay for people who were treated against their will. No addiction can be so bad that you cannot wait until the person discover on own terms that the time has come to stop the addiction and move on. Yes, opportunities in life might be missed while the addiction is bad but then which opportunities? We know in Denmark that not even when you work hard and you have the skills success is ensured. If you are born from poor parents, immigration and foreign students has robbed our system blind so student grants are cut to such an extend that education and access to the good jobs are simply not possible. None should be forced to establish debt in order to get an education.

Instead people should try to settle with what they got and live like the teenagers. Tomorrow a car can hit you. Tomorrow the government can prevent your path towards the education system. Tomorrow the government can cut early retirement and stop what you might have been saving for the last 20 years. Life is like a boxing match and sometime you just have to take the punches like they come. So if your children isolate themselves instead of going out to drink in order to socialize with the other teenagers, accept it.

In Denmark teenagers who are not drinking so much that they are close collapsing being the troubled teens everyone are concerned about. The concern is caused by a case from Kundby where a 16-year-old girl isolated herself only to be arrested shortly before the bombs she had built were to explode at certain schools. Parents try to push their children into the nightlife so they do not built bombs and do not drive Lorries into Christmas market as outside terrorist try to make the teenagers do over the Internet. However, what is the chance that a girl or a boy is radicalized over the Internet? Should Denmark remove all teenagers who are introvert or simply have too many cat-like teddy bears in their room when they are teenagers? No – of course not. They should simply let the children live their life and talk with them from time to time, so the children experience counteraction against the arguments on the Internet. A hands off policy will enable even the quiet children to have a good life with pressure all the time.

The articles from Utah mentioned that the boy, who committed the attack suffered from some kind of addiction. Certainly, his parents regret that they just did not let things go instead of sending him to Utah. It is really a question of sacrifice. It is a question about using the scorched earth strategy. Remove anything from your home, which can enable the addiction. Not only from the room of your child but also from the rest of the house. Provide a roof and plenty of food. At some point, the person with the addiction will reach out for help. Then there are plenty of professional treatment programs both in-patient and outpatient where the addict enjoy a professional treatment in comfortable surroundings. Cure is assured.
