Unemployment and a corrupt politicial system

“Fairness for the small self-employed employers”

All of our problems stem from the same point!
Unemployment ,and the continuing loss of jobs are the government’s biggest failure.
It is well-known that over 80% of the jobs still available come from small business.
These small business are overwhelmed with red tape, taxes, and idiotic restrictions .
The government have done nothing to aid this small business to survive this rescission because none of them know anything about small businesses. The bank bailouts  have soaked up all of the funds the government might otherwise had to support these real supporters of the economy
Instead of helping the current government have done exactly the opposite by raising new stealth taxes and charges at the expense of the small business in favour  of the multi nationals (ESB Charges) (VAT hikes)
In fact not only are they not helping they are actively hurting small businesses with their bank bailout policies by robbing the life blood of credit to these small business .

Every Euro you take from a small business in taxes is a Euro that can’t be paid out in wages.
Instead of kneeling down before the multi nationals get you finger out and stop strangling the guy that gets up every morning and helps other citizens to hold down a job that in turn
Helps him to consume the products of other small business and safeguards local jobs
There will be no support in the property sector if ordinary citizens don’t have confidence in the wider economy or in the people who are supposed to be running the economy and as of now ordinary citizens have lost all confidence in the government’s ability to run the economy .

More worrying the constant televising by the established opposition political parties
About their plans to divide up the various ministries when they get into Government buildings is nothing short of sheer arrogance on their part .

We the citizens do not want business as usual with the existing musical chairs political system
The opposition have not displayed any of the characteristics needed for a radical approach to reversing the disastrous situation the economy is now in, nor have they displayed any real opposition to the governments handling of the crises.
Why?
Because they are themselves career politicians feeding from the same corrupt self-preservation system that they have grown up with all their political lives. Their political parties stamp out every last drop of independent thinking  these TD,s have.

They become addicted to the dictates of the leadership and their sole purpose in life from then on  is to become the leader of the party and so become the leader of their own administration. Citizens problems are soon forgotten and in time their own self-indulgence of their own importance becomes overwhelming .

They are totally reliant on the same civil servants that the current government is reliant on
The same people who will be advising the next batch of public servants whose loyalty is to the current corrupt system .

Remember they are not all fired when a new government is elected into office they stay put !

so they need to be constantly retrained and up skilled to meet the need of a modern economy

We need to get new people into the Dail with a mandate to totally revamp the system by giving back to the citizens the right to fire any servants of the people anytime and not have to wait for 5 years

Under such a system Ivor Callely would be gone a long time ago and without a pension and a lot of his fellow leaches would have joined him
Please support change (promise yourself that) by not voting for any of the current TD, s in the Dail otherwise we only end up with the same incompetence that has destroyed our country
We must break the mould that is sucking us dry

What if this oil spill was off the coast of Ireland?

 

If this had happened in Irish waters the Government would have told the nation that we were all responsible and we must all put our shoulder to the wheel and help stop this well from leaking any more of our precious oil .They would also blame the single mothers and the Unemployed for using up badly needed financial resources that would otherwise be spent plugging the well.

A call for a national bond would be made and everyone in the work would be made pay a new oil cleanup carbon tax levy and the Unions would tell the members that we have no choice as this is the only option for the country

Gormley would employ a few green pals to count all the dead fish and Ryan would call for a national day of mourning .Brian lenihan would go on national TV to tell us we must tighten out collative belts yet another two notches!
Bertie Ahern would look for another “Dig out” from his pals to help pay his levy!
Having got it he would then seek an exemption from the revenue on the grounds he was a struggling artist!
The Government would then blame the protesters of shell to sea for the disaster and have them all thrown into jail!

we need reform now!

The current Irish Government are responsible for the financial disaster the country is in,
With the establishment of NAMA the Government is trying to socialize the enormous losses that the Banks and their Developer buddies have encored.
Corruption is rife and now a new monster burocratic system is being created, where X politicians will have jobs for life and the same corrupt developers will be able to manipulate the housing market all over again
While the people are being robbed of their homes, savings, pensions, and education for their children, that same gangsters are running the country
This has to stop!
Join the CAB to-day and get things moving
Come on! Get active in your own area now!
We as a country need new faces and not the same old tired faces that have being around using the system to suite themselves.

McMANUS PROPOSES KEY RECOMMENDATIONS TO CLOSE HEADSHOP IN BRAY.

Following her consultation involving local groups and individuals in Bray,

Labour TD Liz McManus has proposed a set of key recommendations in regard

to the Headshop in the town .

Deputy McManus said “Having organised a number of small group meetings, I

have received support for:

1)The Minister for Health & Children, Mary Harney, to act swiftly to

introduce the full range of regulations to tackle this scourge.

2) Bray Town Council under planning and bye-laws to work on an All-Party

basis to ensure the Headshop is closed down.

3) The owner of the premises to play his part in ensuring the speedy

closure of his shop.

“There is a need to involve all relevant authorities including the Fire

Safety Officer, the Revenue Commissioners, the Gardaí, and the Office of

Tobacco Control and I am liaising with Labour Cllr Tracy O’Brien who

attended a consultative meeting and offered her support.”

Artists Exemption for (Bertie Ahern)

Artists Exemption

Another whip around for Bertie Ahern!

What a con!

Income earned by writers, composers, visual artists and sculptors from the sale of their works is exempt from income tax in Ireland in certain circumstances.

Section 195, Taxes Consolidation Act, 1997 empowers the Revenue Commissioners to make a determination that certain artistic works are original and creative works generally recognised as having cultural or artistic merit. Earnings derived from such works are exempt from income tax from the year in which the claim was made.

Guidelines have been drawn up by the Arts Council and the Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism, with the consent of the Minister for Finance, for determining for the purposes of Section 195 whether a work is an original and creative work and whether it has, or is generally recognised as having, cultural or artistic merit. The Revenue Commissioners may consult with a person or body of persons, such as The Arts Council, which may be of assistance to them in reaching decisions in relation to Artists Exemption.

The scheme provides that the Revenue Commissioners can make determinations in respect of artistic works in the following categories only:

  1. a book or other writing; (Bertie Ahern Claim)
  2. a play;
  3. a musical composition;
  4. a painting or other like picture, and
  5. a sculpture.

Claimants for Artists Exemption must be resident, or ordinarily resident and domiciled, in the State and not resident elsewhere. The Revenue Commissioners are prepared to give advance opinions regarding a work of claimants resident abroad. If these claimants receive a favourable advance opinion, they will normally then be given a formal determination in respect of Artists Exemption on taking up residence in the State and meeting the other residence requirements.

I found this when looking around the Revenue site
