It’s not enough that nearly 90% of the dirt of Ireland was snatched away from the rightful owners 500 years ago with more than half it’s population killed or scattered to the four winds. That appears to be their lot in life and well, they can like it or lump it, according to the lawyers. Illusion of self-government falters on the heels of outrage.
While the world puts it’s foot down against SOPA/PIPA and the White House backs down from an intransigent stance on Internet meddling, EMI Ireland’s Willie Kavanagh complains his company doesn’t have enough say in the crafting of legislation, which happens to be none of his business. Or is it? The strangest aspects of these ‘bailouts’ is discovering the source of funding the IMF taps since the ‘agency‘ is nigh insolvent.
It goes like this, the IMF steps in and offers a creditor guarantee to prevent upsetting the big apple cart and they sift through the contents, creating new credit instruments based on the value of serviceable assets. The IMF doesn’t have any money, they skim, cream it off the top if you like. When we hear news that the IMF is offering billions to a country, it’s a fair bet those assets had been marked to market in the several trillions.
Traitorous scum now polishing the seats of the Dáil signed their country away back in the day when puffed up politicos still pretended they were the sharpest teeth of the Celtic Tiger. Ireland doesn’t have a monopoly on the two-faced in power but they are by far more colourful than their continental counterparts. And too oddly, they’re wholly believable, Irish are conditioned, admire an assassin’s smile as blade pierces rib cage.
Rule by trauma and a transparent facade of larceny in the corporate class doesn’t bode for a good end, a peaceful one least of all. Government shields such behaviour less well than ever and it wouldn’t surprise anyone at this point if the rumoured Dublin Coup d’Etat was actually on the cards. Yes, there are Irish patriots still and they don’t have a Lord Blackheath investing millions in a ’cause’ controlled by agents of the MI5.
The template of revolution spells a bloody affair in it’s known form but some people think it’s not only outdated and discredited, they pursue a better answer, Gandhi a la mode. RMI’s confidential Irish source confirmed that a manifesto is being prepared but they’re not standing on tired old principles few if any follow anymore. The object of the exercise is to flip things on their head, bring political clout back down to local level.
The draft document reads more like positive suggestions than demands and insane as it may sound, they may have struck on something quite novel. Firstly, today’s Ireland doesn’t have any enemies to speak of except for the major bankers, they can expect some flack at the start. All Irish armed forces must immediately report to the closest local mayor’s office in the nearest city, town and village and prepare to receive orders.
The mayors themselves are the key players because 50 names are to be drawn by lot to replace the sitting government. The chief constables of every community will report to Dublin and be assembled into squads then personally arrest any ministers or their minions that do not accept sternly cordial requests to go home and report back for any required testimony when they are called. Next, all lawyers must be rounded up.
The Institute of Chartered Accountants will be asked to publicise the CVs of their most capable brethren, 12 of which will be chosen by local paper ballot polling to represent the financial interests of Ireland and provide evidence for sound repudiation of odious debt compiled by the ancien regime. Quite literally, it appears that some people ‘get it’, that Ireland needs to clean house but coddled Irish politicians won’t soil their hands.
Whether it’s via web campaign or feet on the ground peaceful resistance, the only real worry here is that the agents of the money combines would be sniping at people from rooftops in a jiffy. There’s no foul depth to which the bankers wouldn’t stoop to keep Seamus down or hack off his cojones if he got too uppity. Potato Famine II would be exactly like the first except this time, it needs NATO troops in such dire circumstances.
Nobody’s allowed to slip from the grasp of the blood suckers so don’t go believing their nastiness knows any bounds. A Greek reader pointed out that SOPA/PIPA was practically enshrined in Athens already because Greece is the main Beta Test of actual EU tyranny. Most significant though is that the crafters of this legislation, multi-national music giants, chose some acronyms that equate to not so nice words in that language.
SOPA is the most common way to tell someone to; “Shut up!” and PIPA is how they describe forced fellatio jokily. Now that we’re no longer unsure what they had in mind for insinuating themselves into our lives, let’s hope for the best when the bond market tanks in the middle of March and Ireland’s creditors turn collectively bonkers mental. Your humble scribbler will be raising a Guinness for a peaceful the day of reckoning!
