A new reason why you should not come to Denmark as a tourist

In culture on February 9, 2019 at 08:23

Once again a customer experienced poor service from a cab driver. As some who have followed the situation in Denmark know, the Danish parliament has protected this line of business banning firms like Uber because they did not like “An American concept”. It is just like in the 1980’s where NATO could not be fully sure about Denmark having their back when they made small notes about everybody and everyone putting safety of the entire organization in danger. Many Danish politicians do not like the United States. Not only do they not like Donald Trump but also the American culture and their forms of business, so Uber was banned and now tourist have to use cabs with the unpleasant drivers.

That has a high cost. So tourists coming to Denmark is advised NOT ever to use a cab to get around.

Months ago a soccer player had to defend himself and his girlfriend. That resulted in a prison sentence but at least his girlfriend was not raped as the cab driver told he would do. The cab driver was sacked by the central his employer was connected to – not by his employer who found this type of behavior acceptable.

In this new case a Dane tries to pay for a trip with ordinary cash – a DKK 1,000 bill which is a note approved by our government. The price of the trip is DKK 100, so all the cab driver has to do is to give DKK 900 back. A very simple transaction but the cab driver properly hoped for a credit card to clone or mobile pay, which is a security risk to possess because people has been forced to transfer large amount of money to street robbers in Oelstykke just outside Copenhagen.

The new incident has been reported to the police but it does not change the fact, that choosing this line of transport in Denmark is dangerous. Almost as dangerous as in Prague where cab drivers have been known to shoot their customers if they disagree about the price of transport.

After the Danish government stepped in and banned Uber, there have been difficulties even to get a cab. Many of the hotels in Copenhagen has complained that the number of cabs are too few and their employees have to drive guests from and to the airport instead.

Alternatives to using cabs

Public transport is very expensive in Denmark. In order to reduce the number of poor commuters from entering the capital of Denmark, they have set the price so high that poor Danes do not come to Copenhagen for recreational use. A single ticket for 8 zone cost 6.50 euros so imagine having a low salary job and pay 13 euros per day to serve in your job!

Tourists have the same problem. Public transport as alternative to cabs are too expensive. That leaves walking but even there tourists have to look out. There are certain areas in Copenhagen you have to avoid. The ongoing gang-war are still on. The warning from the American Embassy in Copenhagen still stands! It has not been better since the central government in Denmark banned the local autonomous regime on Noerrebro known as LTF from existing. Other gangs are trying to take over and people have been shot and killed as result.

There are plenty of fine countries to visit out there. Just avoid Paris during the weekends until the French president steps down because he failed to listen to his people and of course other cities where tons of immigrants try to take avantage of tourists. Ok That might be difficult but that is what Europe in the year 2019 is all about.


3,000 people lost their job during Christmas

In business culture on December 30, 2018 at 07:33

Once again the digitalized world has created human sacrifice and suffering. Top-toy who franchised Toy”R”Us and owns smaller shops announced that they are closing down.

Danish children are stopped being children at an earlier age than before. The society demands that they plan their future during their years in the primarily education schools.

Also the double income society leaves many of them to get education through computers where they soon also learn of the dark side of the Internet. The videos of the recent killings of two women in Morocco from Denmark and Norway made its way back to Denmark within 24 hours because the terrorists hacked the social media accounts of friends, family and universities so all who had the slightest connection to the two victims got the videos showing the terrible murders.

How can you stay a child in such a society?

You cannot!

The children soon move to Fortnite, Grand Theft Auto and Counter Strike so they are prepared to adult life how it is once they grow up. A new kind of The Spanish flu is just around the corner, tourists are warned against gang wars in Copenhagen by the US embassy in Denmark and life as professional soldier is actually the only career choice if you come from a low-income family thanks to the recent cuts in student grants.

The children need to prepare. They are asked aged 14-16 to decide which kind of secondary education they want to attend. A wrong choice there cannot be undone as the government has banned student grants for a second try in the system. You have one shot and such an important decision cannot be made overnight so the thinking process about the future starts years before.

3,000 employees lose their work. 3,000 families now join the hunt for a new job if they are aged below 40 or the hunt for cheap housing outside the cities if they are older and basically unwanted in the labor market.

If you are a young person who has to make a decision about what to work with once you leave school, none recommend working in a shop anymore. The shops have live up to a lot of rules about paying taxes and protect the environment. The webshops which often are located in Asia can pay their employees a bowl of rice and dumb whatever leftover from the production outside the plant. They even can get their packets delivered from Asia to Denmark cheaper compared to a Dane wanting to send a packet across Denmark to another Dane. How it can be so, is not to understand, but that is how it is. Foreign webshops are given discount in the postal system, so they can kick people out of their jobs in Danish shops.

2018 has been a year where the ordinary Dane learned how to be afraid of life itself. Traveling abroad is dangerous. Tourist buses are blown up in Egypt, people get their throat cut in Morocco and elsewhere, walking the Danish streets in parts of Copenhagen can get you shot by accident and if look after your job and provide the finest service cannot ensure you against unemployment.

Once you get unemployed you are at the mercy of the people in the unemployment office where you are sent to work for your unemployment benefits you have paid for as a kind of insurance while you were working. You are sent to work in firms who befriend the cases workers so they can use you while you are “job-tested” to put other firms out of business. In a perfect world firms in other countries, but in reality the result is random.

It happened to more than 10,000 people in the graphic and printing industry. It happened to people working in electronic resellers like Fona. Now it happens for 3,000 people in the toy shops.

2018 has not been a fine year for anyone in Denmark.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

What a joke!


When no other options, hard decisions had to be made

In politics on December 4, 2018 at 11:44

I have no doubt that being force to stay at an island with no towns in a part of Denmark who citizens recognize as “The Rotten Banana” is not fun. However Denmark has been cornered. The European Union has for quite a while been putting pressure on the countries in the nothern part of Africa to get them to stop the immigrants from Africa in the desert where there are no cameras covering them dying from thirst instead of in the middle of the ocean where every Newschannel can see them down. Too many have survived and they are living in Denmark. They are not really immigrants. They are people not wanting to work or paying tax in their home countries and of course like many Danes they are hunted by the tax department and other authorities just as the authorities in Denmark will do when Danes will not pay their taxes or serve in the job the case workers assign them to.

The government of Denmark have ordered them to stay at a remote Danish island. This little cartoon explains it very good. Unfornately it has not been translated to Arabic and several other languages so people wanting to go to Denmark knows what they will expect.

Once again our government has failed. A lot of newspapers have reported the system as it is but it is not good enough. This news needs to be translated into as many languages as possible. Otherwise the human trafickers will fool the immigrants and they will come here expecting something not even Danes can expect.

There have never been so many homeless people in Denmark. People who have parents who have paid their taxes here for their entire life!

Still they cannot even get a roof over their heads!

On the island they will have roof over their heads. It is more than young Danes get. They will not freeze to death which is a destiny many young Danes suffer in the winter.

People needs to know that if they survive passing the desert – if they survive passing the ocean – this is where they will end up.

On Denmarks new Devils Island. On the Island of tears.

This is a solution none wanted but a solution which sadly is the only answer to this problem.


EU membership causes Denmark to close down major parts of its education system

In politics on November 18, 2018 at 08:46

For a number of years it has become a problem that foreign students come to Denmark to study. Their presence have caused problems. When you start at the universities in Denmark they arrange an intro trip to a cottage where the goal is kind of team-building. Because Danes never open up to other people unless they drink alcohol, foreign students have been schoked by this experience when the talk include sexual behaviors or other private matter which is normal to debate in Denmark.

But also the economy was an issue. The Danish businesses do not welcome a person back who have worked abroad. In fact if you work abroad for 7 years you lose all welfare benefits in Denmark and are considered an immigrant in the eyes of the system. The reason for this approach is that the state pays for your education and then it is expected that you work your debt off in Danish firms.

Foreign students go back to the country they came from once they graduate and this is a waste of money.

So all the universities in Denmark will now remove classes which has a high number of foreign students attending. Unfortunately this damage our own youth more than the foreign students because the European Union do not allow the Danish education system to just send the foreign students home. They have to close down the entire class so not only the 5-20 percent foreign students are affected but also the 80-95 percent danish students.

For those Danish students they future is not good. A lot have to give up their academic future and simply skip a professional career and become SOSU assistant instead (working with nursing of elderly and disabled persons), which is a choice of career often selected by those who come from lower social classes.

While the closure of classes at the universities is a direct result of our membership status of the European Union, the authorities are now working hard to prevent that the bitterness caused by the many students losing a shot at a bright future will result in act of violence and possible attacks of foreigners in Denmark.

In that regard Denmark is challenged as never before. In a lot of cities in Denmark success cannot be shown. New students graduating from high schools can no longer wear the cab they buy when they graduate in public. If they do they risk being egged or even hit by worse things. People unable to achieve success of any kind due to their social status are becoming more aggressive and the anger towards success at others are becoming more widespread as Denmark become more devided compared to previous times.

A Dexit (Denmark leaving the European Union) could save the situation but when looking at the European Union it can prove impossible because the dictator of Europe – the seemingly drunken Jean-Claude Juncker who represent the elite in Europe – has put an implacable line down in order to prevent United Kingdom trying to regain its former status as a world power now where United Kingdom has broken the chains of the European Union which held the country down.

Denmark as a nation is challenged as ever before.


Kindergarten of death now housing so-called refugees

Kindergarten of death in the townshiip of Egedal

Near a township on Sealand in Denmark they now house refugees in a former kindergarten where a child died back around 2004. The sewer system is about 50 years old and run down in the area. That allowed pests like rats to leave the system and play in the sandboxes which the children also used. Sometime children taste odd things and it is likely that the death was caused by that. The employees in the kindergarten was of course in contact with their trade union as it is custom in Denmark and demanded overtime if they had to place nets or other cover over the sandboxes after work. The local medical authorities were kept in the dark by the management of the kindergarten so the exact cause of death was never fully public.

Later some kids played with matches and part of the kindergarten burned down. It was abandoned for some years and is now turned into temporary housing for the so-called refugees coming to Europe. Rather strange that they choose Denmark where you pay 50 percent of your taxes and can be charged 164,000 DKK if the social services determine that the parents social heritage has part of the children getting depressed because one of the parents had depression in the past, but that is another story.

The refugees live in the buildings formerly known as the kindergarten of death by the locals. They do not what kind of danger they are placed in. Otherwise they would properly choose to go back because as a person who have lived my entire life in Denmark and watched tons of television from around the world, I can really not imagine that any other people in any other country of the entire world are worse off that us Danes.

Trump was right when he warned the people of United States looking to Denmark for solutions.

Migrants come to Denmark too and it has become a problem (Danes studying abroad)
