Ted Ewen originally shared to Hermit House: Politics:
 
Taxes are not a bad thing. used well. I live in Denmark, one of the most highly taxed nations on the planet. We pay 38% income tax and 24% VAT on many items. Know what?

I have far more disposable income. A public transport system that works. Medical care free. Subsidised education for life. My mortgage, travel, and other expenses are offset against taxes. We have a beautiful road network, and an equally beautiful and comprehensive bicycle and foot path system.  We make a large part of our electricity via renewable systems and are going for 100%.  

We have a social safety net that ensures everyone eats, everyone has a place to sleep. You have to work really hard to be down and out here.   Innovation is rampant. Almost everyone has a small business. Libraries are well stocked and everywhere. There are citizen music,arts, and science programs. There is more, but you get the idea.

I am more than happy to pay that level of tax. More than happy.
Why? Because I see that the money is being used well. Something I never felt in the US. 50% on military spending? No.

This heavily taxed nation of @6 million people is ranked 21st in the world based on GDP per capita. The US is 10th with 60 times the people and 223 times the land.

Finally, Denmark is always in the top 10 (usually the top 5) of the Best/Happiest places to live.  Satisfaction in Denmark rides around the 75-85% level.

As an American, I grow weary of the greedy and the selfish, the ignorant and the apathetic, telling us that it can not be done in the good old USA. Nonsense.

Social Democracy works.

Very interesting to hear this commentary from someone who has the insights of both countries.

The first wave of Apple Watch hangovers are starting to appear.

#wearable #applewatch 
I bought an Apple Watch. I didn't preorder it, because at first I didn't even want one. I warned people who asked me about the company's first wearable:

Nej, Søren Gade er bestemt et trumfkort for Venstre, men også et træk, der er forbundet med visse risici med tanke på det seneste formandsopgør.
Det bliver spændende at følge.

Historier som denne får mig til at skamme mig over at bo i dette snævertsynede, intolerante og selvtilstrækkelige lille land.

LEO MATHISEN - TAKE IT EASY

Leo "The Lion" Mathisen was a Danish jazz pianist, composer, arranger, singer and bandleader.
He was a leading figure of the thriving Danish scene during the years around World War II - a period which has been labelled the Golden  Age of Danish Jazz and he is considered to be one of most significant and original jazz musicians of his day.

Ja, han havde en overbevisende international "sound" i sin samtid - noget som de fleste danske bands i dag mangler.
