The political left

Published on Thu, 2007-11-15 - 23:42

The political left is mainly composed of do-gooders that do not want to do good themselves.

Imagine someone wanting to do good for the homeless, and instead of doing the obvious and going out there with food/money/coffee/blankets/whatever, they decide to moan about it to the press, politicians, and just about anybody else who is willing to listen (or just happen the hapless victim).

The result is that the tax payers are burdened with doing good for almost anyone. It is a rare person in Denmark that does not receive his share of all the do-goodery.

Flooded

We had just finished one of our work Saturdays, our irregular fix-up-the-house days. I had been cleaning the basement all day, and everything was shining - after that, I went into the garden to help pruning and weeding.

Just around 17.00 when we were finished, we had a short thunderstorm, with as much rain as I've ever seen in such as small period.

As we live at the bottom of a hill, right next to Lake Gentofte, our basement quickly started flooding. Water came up from the sewer...

The Adobe hegemony

I am currently at the Adobe Creative Suite 3 Launch Seminar at CinemaxX, Fisketorvet, Copenhagen, Denmark. I've been here since 09:00 watching the Adobe employees presenting their new creations.

I can't believe the news today. The danish bus drivers are on strike again. They want higher salaries, but then who does not?

It's all thanks to the labour unions. They've made a big deal of whipping their members into a frenzy this year, talking about how Denmark can "afford it". To me, that's a completely ridiculous notion. The Danish workforce has gotten so used to this twisted thinking that their salaries should always increase faster than the inflation.

Its officially a very long time since I last blogged here. The year 2007 has proved to be very interesting so far. There's been a lot of activity at my church lately, and work has also been busy. Our fiscal year ended december 31st, and since then, we've been quite busy in the accounting department. On top of that, I have all the technical stuff to take care of as well.

Openness

My recent trip to USA has certainly been educating. I got many of my presumptions confirmed over there, but I'd have to revise some of them. Which is good. I like to get my perceptions and paradigms challenged. Reminds me that I'm not perfect.
