Welfare State Subsidizes And Protects Heavy Metal Loser

Published

on

According to a music website, “Swedish man gets disability benefits for addiction to heavy metal.”

“42-year-old Roger Tullgren said he consulted three psychologists to testify his addiction to the Devil’s Rock, which led to him attending over 300 concerts last ‘ear, leaving him seemingly unable to hold down a job. ‘I have been trying for 10 years to get this classified as a handicap,” he told Swedish newspaper The Local. ‘I spoke to three psychologists and they finally agreed that I needed this to avoid being discriminated against.’ According to the report, he now has a part-time job as a dishwasher at a restaurant in Hassleholm, which will be supplemented by disability benefits. Tullgren’s new boss has agreed to let him rock out to Slayer as loud as he wants while scrubbing dishes, so long as it doesn’t disturb guests. He has even agreed to grant Tullgren time off to go to gigs.”

It would be easy, and tempting, to assault this unholy arrangement as an example of the productive class being eaten up by the parasite class. We could see here an example of how voters are able to elect people who then take from the makers and give to those who only consume and do not work.
But who are we kidding? There is not yet any voting bloc for heavy metal addicts. This isn’t simply about the power of voting money into one’s own pockets. Maybe that was the way this problem got started, but this pathetic “heavy metal disabled” person (I can’t bring myself to call him a “man”) doesn’t have any clout to set state policy. Tullgren doesn’t have political pull. Yet he now has the power to extort employers. As he states,

“I signed a form saying: ‘Roger feels compelled to show his heavy metal style. This puts him in a difficult situation on the labor market. Therefore he needs extra financial help’. So now I can turn up at a job interview dressed in my normal clothes and just hand the interviewers this piece of paper.”

How is this possible? Even though Tullgren is morally culpable for his own slothfulness, and for his willingness to coerce his (horribly docile) employer, I think we need to realize that he is also a victim.
Yes, a victim.
The state has taken a person who might have learned to be partially functional, and taken away any reason he should need to grow up. He has been turned into a perpetual child getting a perpetual “allowance” from his mother/nanny/state. He gets to live in a “Rock and Roll Fantasy” and taxpayer and business-owner expense.
The real question I have is: Why does the modern State find it desirable to turn adults into overgrown babies? We have a ruling class that has decided to destroy the basic education available in real life and to manipulate them into a subsidized fantasy. In real life, you can’t afford to go to rock concerts unless you earn enough money. In real life, you have to actually care about what other people think about your appearance in order to offer them something of value in exchange for what you want. If you want to have enough money to afford getting tattoos, you will have to make sure the tattoos aren’t so visible or offensive to keep you from getting a job. In real life you have to make compromises and only listen to your favorite music at times and places where it doesn’t interfere with other people in the workplace.
Tullgren thinks he has won “freedoms.” But he hasn’t. He’s now a perpetually dependent slave who will live a mostly unproductive life before the Swedish medical system decides it is time to euthanize him.
And America is really not that far behind. Like Sweden’s, our corporate ruling organization, the state, with its attendant ruling class, has decided that it is batter to raise marginal children than to allow the development of mature people who have learned to produce more than they consume.
The questions that bother me are: What is the endgame? How can this lead to anything good for our ruling class? A population of non-productives means mass poverty.
I am sometimes tempted to think that Western states suffer from a mass deathwish. I know that the Bible says of God’s wisdom, “All who hate me love death” (Proverbs 8.36), but I had never thought the warning was meant so literally.

Letter Threatens To Burn Homes Of New Hampshire Trump Supporters

“Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election.”

President Trump supporters in two small New England cities have gotten menacing letters threatening to burn down their homes.

“Dear neighbor. You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make sure that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given “Fair Warning.” Always remember, it was “you” that started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy.”

TDW:

Someone is sending letters to Trump supporters in New Hampshire, threatening to burn down their homes if President Trump loses the presidential election but will not concede defeat.

As WMUR reported, the letter, which Milford police stated has been sent to various homes in the town displaying support for the president.

[…]

Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley confirmed two Trump supporters in his town also received the letter. “I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” he admitted.

Quigley said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, adding that the perpetrator could be charged with a serious crime. He explained, “Not only with us, with criminal threatening. It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.” More

So instead of trying to talk to people to earn their vote they would rather threaten and scare people.  These people who did this have no idea who they are screwing with. Live Free or Die and if pressured, we are ready to defend ourselves and our homes.

Independent Pollster Frank Luntz: Voters Turned Off By ‘Condescending’ Harris, Pence ‘Was The Winner’

Independent Pollster Frank Luntz: Voters Turned Off By ‘Condescending’ Harris, Pence ‘Was The Winner’

Pollster Frank Luntz told Fox News after the vice presidential debate last night that Vice President Mike Pence was the winner of the debate, saying that voters were turned off by Kamala Harris’ “condescending” and “abrasive” attitude toward Mike Pence.

“The complaint about Kamala Harris was that she was abrasive and condescending,” said Frank Luntz, who analyzed reactions from voters in various swing states. “The complaint about Mike Pence was that he was too tired, but [he was] vice presidential, or presidential. If this is a battle over style and substance — which is often the case with undecided voters because they simply do not choose on policy, they also choose on persona — this was Mike Pence’s night.”

Frank Luntz said that voters disliked the candidates dodging questions but overall they were much happier with the way the debate went vs. the way the first debate went.

Frank Luntz said that while voters were frustrated with the vice president for repeatedly running over his allotted time, “Harris’ reactions to Pence — the smiling, the smirking, the scowling’ left them far ‘angrier’ with her performance,” Fox News reported.

Luntz said that voters were “more agitated with Kamala’s presentation than they were with Mike Pence.”

Twitter has a few thoughts:

Trump Vows Immediate $1,200 Check To Americans If Pelosi Moves Bill

Trump Vows Immediate $1,200 Check To Americans If Pelosi Moves Bill

Democrats and Republicans have been quarreling for months over another stimulus bill to help millions of Americans struggling financially during the coronavirus pandemic. But the president has a plan to cut through all their red tape.

“If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy?” Donald Trump wrote on Twitter this morning.

Trump had another message for Pelosi: “Move Fast, I Am Waiting To Sign!”

As the leader of the Democrats in the House, Nancy Pelosi could recommend that her caucus to support such a bill, which likely would move quickly through the Republican-controlled Senate and make it to Trump’s desk in the Oval Office for his signature.

On The View today, Nancy Pelosi said: “It’s hard to see any clear sane path on what he’s doing but the fact is, he saw the political downside of his statement of walking away from the negotiations …he’s rebounding from a terrible mistake he made yesterday and the Republicans in Congress are going down the drain with him on that.”

“But I will say this, it is really important for us to come to this agreement. When the president just popped off and made that announcement without even informing us that that was the case, he insulted the Constitution of the United States.”

Nancy is the most powerful woman in the world? Keep on dreaming Joy Behar! How fitting… The biggest hypocrite in the country on the most hypocritical show on TV.

Steve Cortes Hammers Chris Wallace: “He had to debate not just Joe Biden, but you as well”

Steve Cortes Hammers Chris Wallace: "He had to debate not just Joe Biden, but you as well"

Fox News Channel host and registered Democrat Chris Wallace aggressively lectured at length Trump campaign advisor Steve Cortes during a messy appearance on Fox News today.

Chris Wallace yelled at Steve Cortes and continuously interrupted him while he tried to answer the unhinged questions from Wallace.

“The way you are starting to harangue me now reminds me of what you did to the president during that debate on Tuesday night,” he said. “He had to debate not just Joe Biden, but you as well.”

Wallace rejected that accusation and said it was a Trump campaign talking point. “You were not a neutral moderator,” Cortes said. “What I don’t think is okay for you to become the effective opposition to the president.”

Chris Wallace continues his nasty attacks even now that President Donald Trump is at Walter Reed. He’s blaming the president for contracting the China virus. He’s a partisan hack and Fox News approves of this. There’s no reason for a conservative to appear on Fox News Channel any longer because they’re not going to get a fair shake.

Scalise: Pelosi Turned Down Offer To Implement Coronavirus Testing On Capitol Hill

Published

on

By

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reportedly refused to implement Coronavirus testing for lawmakers in the nation’s capital, according to a top lawmaker.

“Congressman Davis is exactly correct,” Scalise said. “I mean these protocols have been out there and the testing capabilities have been out there for a long time. They were offered to the speaker and she turned it down.”

“I think it’s something that should have been in Congress for a few weeks now,” Scalise continued. “But ultimately that’s what the speaker decided to do.”

Scalise’s remarks come after Davis sent the following letter to Pelosi on Friday:

I am writing again today to reiterate my concern that we do not have a comprehensive health monitoring system and testing program for our Capitol Hill campus in order to help us do our part to stop the spread of coronavirus. I have stood ready to engage with your office and my counterpart on the Committee on House Administration for months, but my requests have gone unanswered. While I appreciate that the attending physician has been able to conduct COVID-19 testing for members who have symptoms or have been exposed, provide very limited staff testing, and advise offices on contact tracing, our ability to monitor the health and safety of the House is severely lacking because you have failed to implement a plan.

Universities, public institutions, private businesses, and communities across the country have embraced technologies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Yet, the House has failed to adopt similar tools that are now being used nationwide. As testing has advanced and become more readily available, the House’s posture on testing has not evolved from where we were months ago. Reports of changes to test offerings by the attending physician announced today are misleading as the criteria for receiving a test from the Office of the Attending Physician (OAP) remains largely unchanged. I’m concerned this has created confusion and misled everyone who works on Capitol Hill to believe testing options have been expanded.

The attending physician gives recommendations to our community, but the policies on how we govern the House are set by you and a widespread testing program has not been adopted because you have opposed it. This institution, similar to the White House, must continue to function to serve the American people during this pandemic. As a result, thousands of people who support this institution, report on this institution, and protect this institution, must continue to come to work and have not had the luxury of staying in their homes and working by proxy or remotely like some of your caucus members.

Our testing criteria should not reflect the news of the day or be to politically shield your office when difficult news breaks. This is not an acceptable way to communicate and continues to show your partisanship on this issue. Additionally, today provided a stark reminder that you and other members of Congress were able to receive a COVID-19 test, while in other instances essential workers of the House have been denied the same test because your office has failed to implement what you have called for nationwide. This is a “do as I say, not as I do” approach to governing that has been politicized when policies are inconsistently communicated and enforced and falls short of what our constituents deserve.

I reiterate my desire to work with you and stand willing to work with your team to develop and execute a plan that provides comprehensive and continuous health monitoring and testing capabilities for our transient congressional population and all who support the first branch of government.

BET Co-Founder Strongly Suggests He Won’t Vote For Biden

BET Co-Founder Strongly Suggests He Won’t Vote For Biden

Bob Johnson, founder, and chairman of RLJ Companies: “I will take the devil I know over the devil I don’t know any time of the week,” he told “Squawk Box.” “You’re better off dealing with somebody you know where they’re going to be than somebody you really have no idea what decisions they will make at such a critical time.”

“This was like a schoolyard fight over who had the best-looking girlfriend,” Johnson said. “It was a waste of an hour and a half that gave no guidance, no direction at all as to where the country will go after this election. But having summed it up in that language, where I come out as a businessman, I will take the devil I know over the devil I don’t know any time of the week. And that seems to be what business people are confronting today.”

When CNBC anchor Rebecca Quick asked if Johnson was endorsing President Trump, he said that Americans are better off dealing with whoever is already at the helm of the ship. He did not directly endorse President Trump, but he severely criticized Joe Biden.

“I’m not endorsing anybody,” Johnson said. “What I’m saying is if I’m a businessperson, what you want more than anything else, particularly coming out of something as horrible as this pandemic, and its impact on not only the U.S. economy but the global economy, the more you know about who will be pulling the lever of economic growth, economic development, taxes, stimulus, regulation. In my opinion, you’re better off dealing with somebody you know where they’re gonna be than somebody you really have no idea what decisions they will make at such a critical time.”

“I absolutely do not know what Vice President Biden will do. I haven’t heard anything coherent out of what he said he would do,” he added.

Robert Johnson has been seriously critical of the Democratic Party throughout this election cycle. In June, Johnson called for a black independent party, citing Joe Biden’s now-infamous “you ain’t black” comment.

“I’ve been convinced for a long time that 40 million African Americans who tend to vote as a bloc in one of the two parties limit their leverage in getting action from both parties,” he said. “I think it’s time that African Americans form an independent party, not be an appendage of one party or ignored by the other party, and using their leverage in a Democracy to say, ‘we stand for things that are principally focused on the 40 million African Americans,’ and not have that diluted by trying to be a part of another party where the interests may diverge, and oftentimes do diverge.”
