A little heavy thoughts about my finances

Saturday 2 June 2018

I have the least disability insurance and in the world’s most expensive country, there is little to live off. I have no savings account and can not go to eg the dentist. In the nice summer weather, as it is now, I can not afford to buy me barbecue food. I never imagined life would be as it is now.

I am chronically ill and can not work due to diabetic neuropathy in both feet. I can not go further than a couple of hundred meters, so the pain is so bad that I get sick and unwell. I have an electric scooter, so I can shop for food and a little bit of outings.

Now it has become untenable to only afford food and some few cozy things. I have no family or support from anyone, so it’s hard to cope. Now I write from my heart and dare not think about what you’re thinking about this post. I’m not begging, but looking at it as sponsorship.

I have my own domain, it costs a lot of money in Norway. I subscribe to a local newspaper that also costs. I have to save to this throughout the year. I need a life, so I can afford this.

I appeal to you as a fellow man to sponsor me with a small amount. I do not ask for much, but just so I do not get a bad summer. I thank you for everything you decide.

Thank you in advance, you will find the link here

A bit about diabetes 2 mellitus I have

Monday, May 14, 2018

The disease I have is a chronic complex condition. It has the potential to really worry me. It is described as a disease with high blood sugar due to absolute or relative insulin deficiency, possibly also insulin resistance.

Diabetes mellitus will over time increase the risk of late damage. The risk can be reduced considerably with adequate treatment. The injuries are, among other things, the result that the smallest blood vessels are injured for a long time with high blood sugar.

The blood vessels that are affected are the finest years in the kidneys, the retina of the eye, the peripheral nerves and the legs. This causes poor blood circulation that can cause gangrene in the legs, in some cases with amputation as a result. It can also lead to visual impairment or blindness, kidney damage or erection failure and / or nerve damage.

So there are no good prospects later in life. So I am very careful about sugar and foods with high carbohydrate content. I hope to live long with this, maybe there will be better medicines in the future.

About NAV

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

I have a lot on my mind when it comes to Norwegian authorities and their attitude to the poor. We have 9.3 percent poor people living under the UN poverty line. The food is so expensive in Norway that many of these people go to bed without having eaten a hot meal for dinner. Other expenses such as Dentist, doctor and medication are also expensive.

We have a government agency called NAV or Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration. NAV administers all those who register as unemployed, those with disability benefits and other social benefits.

NAV keeps payments low and gives poor a difficult and unpredictable future. There is a political will to reduce disability payments among several political parties. It is also a program to reduce the number of people on social security and other benefits. So many people live in uncertainty about the next development in their case.

The soundtrack of immigrant children shakes the United States


Tuesday 19 June 2018


ProPublica has released sound recordings of several crying children who have been taken from their parents on the border with the United States.

In the seven-minute recording, ten children of immigrants from Central America will be heard talking with border guards. The children cry and demand their parents after being taken away from them on the border.

Among the cry, a male border guard is heard:

– We have an orchestra here, do not we? We only need a conductor.

Two children are told not to cry.

“Can I at least be with my aunt?” I want her to come, ask the girl from El Salvador. She has pinned the phone number, and eventually gets help calling the aunt. Another child cries uninterrupted throughout the sound recording, and calls for his dad.

2000 children in six weeks

The recording puts sound on a theme that now characterizes the political debate in the United States.

Since the end of April, more than 2,000 children have been taken from their parents and held in detention camps by the authorities after arrival in the United States, something a child lawyer refers to as “a form of child abuse”, CBS writes.

According to the news agency, AP, some of the children are kept in cages.

In May, US Justice Minister announced a new zero tolerance for illegal immigration from Mexico:

“If you smuggle a child, we will plead and that child may be separated from you. If you do not want your children to be taken from you do not take them over the border illegally. ”

“We do not have the same civilization model. Obviously, certain values ​​we do not share, he says to the TV channel France 2.

President Donald Trump believes that the blame lies with the Democrats.

Audi’s chief executive has been arrested because of emissions scandal

Monday, June 18, 2018

Rupert Stadler says he is innocent.

The German prosecutor has decided to arrest Audi chief executive Rupert Stadler, according to AFP and Die Welt.

Stadler is under investigation for Volkswagen-owned Audi’s involvement in the diesel scandal, and is now temporarily detained, confirms Volkswagen.

A week ago, the home of Stadler was investigated.


The German prosecutor of the Munich Attorney General filed a trial on 30 May. Stadler and a member of the board are suspected of fraud, according to Spiegel.

Stadler has always claimed he is innocent.

In January it became known that German transport authorities had found prohibited emissions control software in several of Audi’s cars, which in turn led them to recall 127,000 cars.


In November, the car manufacturer had to call back 5,000 cars in Europe to correct a software problem that caused the cars to escape too much nitrogen oxide. It is the same gas that was the backdrop of the diesel scandal in the owner company Volkswagen back in 2015.

Volkswagen admitted by 2015 to have equipped their cars with a special software designed to trick emission tests. It was US authorities who discovered the software, which is located in the cars to embrace environmental harmful emissions from diesel engines.

Expert on Trump’s recall of the G7 declaration: – Not surprised

Sunday, June 10, 2018

At night Norwegian time, US President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter that he has asked the country’s representatives not to sign the final declaration after the G7 summit. Senior scientist Hege is not surprised and calls at the same time the president’s behavior for “bullied”.

On Friday a highly divided G7 – consisting of Canada, France, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany and the United States, as well as the EU – is gathered in Quebec. Later in the day, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the countries had agreed on a final declaration on all issues outside of climate. In the eight-page end-declaration, the G7 countries promise, among other things, fighting protectionism, preventing Iran from receiving nuclear weapons and modernizing the World Trade Organization (WTO).

After the meeting, Donald Trump twittered what could not be interpreted as other than that he believed the meeting had been successful. – Just went from the G7 meeting in beautiful Canada. Good meetings and relationships with the six heads of state, he wrote.

A couple of hours later the tone was different. Tonight, Trump wrote on Twitter that he has asked the country’s representatives not to sign the final statement after the G7 summit. He also challenged Justin Trudeau and called him too weak and cowardly.

The reason for the Twitter statements was that Trudeau at a press conference after the meeting should have promised to introduce similar penalties imposed by the United States against Canada from 1 July. The promise came after Trump warned the other G7 countries against such countermeasures.

Senior researcher at NUPI Hege Medin, is not surprised at the US President’s release.

– Trump’s last statement in which he instructs the US representatives to withdraw support on the G7 countries agreed on is not surprising. It is in the line of Trump’s actions that contribute to weakening the international institutions for cooperation, “Medin said.

Giuliani: Trump could shoot Comey and still not be charged

Monday 4 June

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani heads the president’s legal team and claims the president will not pardon himself from Russia’s investigation, although he probably has the power to do so.

The New York Times published a confidential letter from several of Donald Trump’s lawyers sent in January, arguing that the president does not need to testify to specialist researcher Robert Mueller because the position gives him the power to give himself amnesty in the investigation and to stop the whole investigation.

In the end, US law experts have discussed the content of the letter. Former state prosecutor Preet Bharara, now legal expert for CNN, told the channel that it would be outrageous for a seated president to give himself amnesty.

“If the president was to pardon himself, I think that would automatically trigger a court order,” he said.

Trumps lawyer Rudy Giuliani has also stated on Sunday. At ABC’s “This Week,” he said, “He has no intention to pardon himself” even though he “probably has the power to do it” and at NBC’s “Meet the Press” he said it would be “unthinkable” that Trump should give himself amnesty, and he also said that “it would probably lead the court immediately”.

“If he is shooting James Comey, he will be sued for the next day.” They have to put him to court first, so they can do whatever they want with him, “said the lawyer.

During the presidential campaign, Donald Trump rebuked that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue “without losing votes.” Norm Eisen, Ethics Committee in the White House of Barack Obama, told Huffington Post that the president’s lawyers are wrong when it comes to the president’s power.

Was notified of a dead person – was man who basked

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

A police officer in Stockholm received a disturbing message that there was a dead man in a park in the Swedish capital.

“My colleague was out on patrol when a man came running to him and said there was a dead man in a park,” said police inspector Viktor Adolphson to Aftonbladet.

Fortunately, when the policeman came to the spot, it did not seem to be able to vote. The man was not dead.

“There was a man who had dressed to enjoy the sun and he was fine. He was not drunk and took it easy, says the police inspector.

Asked why the suspect thought the person was dead, says the police inspector;

“It’s a bit unclear. He might be pale.

Furthermore, he said that it was good with committed citizens, but that it would have been better if the tipger had taken direct contact with the man who was asleep.
