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

Is it too late?

Everybody else had to pay only not us, this gent was quite happy to see other people lose their jobs and their pensions, get their dole money cut or even get nothing at all but when it comes to his own member’s civil servants. Servants of the people what a laugh, well let’s just say he and his members are living on a different planet that the rest of us!

In previous postings I asked the question where were the Unions when this government were imposing penal taxes on the most vulnerable ,those that have no voice , the self employed ,now most of us unemployed ,our pensions gone ,paying into the PRSI and then being told that we were entitled to nothing, no help from the state.

The fact is the union bosses have also lost touch with the ordinary rank and file of the members

Their salaries are ten times the average industrial wage and a multiple of the ordinary member’s wage.

Yes these Union bosses could embarrass the King of expenses accounts Mr Jonny CASH
Ceann Comhairle O’Donoghue

Where on a daily bases we here people who are being paid huge salaries from the state tell us that we must pay more taxes and pay for the bail out of fat Bankers, corrupt politicians fiddling their bolted expenses and civil servants help themselves to whatever funds they want all taken from the public purse

For God sake , stop these vested interests stealing the families silver or is it too late ?

How to win a referendum:

Scaremongering but who’s doing it?


Finance Minister Brian Lenihan also warned yesterday that if Irish voters snubbed the treaty the result would “shatter international confidence” and lead to continued scarcity of funding and increased borrowing costs.(Looking for a yes vote)

A ‘No’ vote in next month’s lisbon Treaty  referendum could result in the interest bill on Ireland’s national debt jumping by up to €900m a year according to Indecon
(
Looking for a Yes vote )

A NO vote in the upcoming Lisbon Treaty referendum would represent a “spiritual withdrawal”, from Europe, Minister for Finance Brian Lenihan has warned. (Looking for a Yes vote)

A Yes vote in the referendum would earn Ireland the continued goodwill and support of the EU in tackling the banking crisis, he added.

Mr Gormley “It would be entirely counterproductive to vote “The whole emphasis in terms of the European recovery is a green recovery [which can provide] jobs, jobs, jobs.” Echoing the sentiments of other pro-Lisbon political leaders, “It would be a huge mistake to focus on national issues when this is a campaign to get us out of recession,” he said. (Looking for a yes vote)

How to win a referendum:

1. On top of high VRT, introduce a Green (Party) carbon tax, and just to be on the safe side, impose a €200 a year work parking tax, just for daring to have a job!

2. Make the citizens vote a second time, even though they said No – but make sure you don’t change the wording.

3. Have on the Yes side a millionaire car salesman, like Bill Cullen, who opposed changes to the infamous VRT, and is the biggest over priced merchant for  the Renault spear parts in the country(Nice one Bill!)

 

4 . Have Ryanair on the Government side, who are best known for their F-Service , saying there are a millions reasons to vote Yes (excluding taxes and charges), and (Baggage charges Now approaching 100 euro per bag) then have the same Government introduce a €10 travel tax, contrary to EU law of freedom of movement between member-states.

5 . In case the European Central Bank doesn’t hype up mortgage rates any time soon, re-introduce water rates and a property tax on every family home in Ireland, while at the same time making taxpayers bail out the bankers and the builders.

6 . Make sure Brian Cowen leads the Yes campaign.

7 . Have crooks running FAS

8 . Have people like John O’Donoghue become Ceann Comhairle in the Dail

9 . Create Toxic Banks to help your buddies in the Banks and the Building


Industries

10 . Keep corrupt Politicians in places of power

11 .TAX the Sh*** out of the ordinary people

12 Tell them you are going to crucify them in the coming December Budget

13. Make a complete mess of the Economy, and blame it on the ordinary people

For having paid extortion prices for their own homes

14. Put a Tax on those homes, let say 1000 Euro on average for every home in

The land

15 .when you hold a referendum keep going back to the people until you get the right result (the one you want)

16 .
Keep corrupt Bankers in their High paying Jobs at Bankrupt Banks

17. Allow these same Banks (Now with Government appointed Directors) to

Overcharge their own customers, and then, clam that it was a computer error when found out.

18. Allow dodgy Building Developers stroll into the courts of the land and present fantasy valuations as a means to dance around The Supreme Court rulings

When 80 families are turned out, and lose their overpriced homes every week, sold to them by these developers in the first place

19 . Make it blatantly obvious, that there is one law for the rich, and another law for the poor in this country

20. Tell everyone that NAMA is the only game in town and we the people must pay the gambling debts of the super rich of the country.

That should do it!

 

 

 


Rip-off Republic

Its official we in Ireland are being ripped off even in stores like Argos and IKEA

A Mr. Barry Smyth of University College Dublin, a computer science professor

Mr. Smyth decided to do a study on the price difference between Ireland and 12 other countries.

By writing a simple program that calculated the value index based on the pricing here in the Republic of Ireland.

At first, it turns out that on the whole we are not the ‘Rip-off Republic’ we thought we were as regards to the likes of IKEA,

So Professor Smyth decided to look further afield to ARGOS

Smyth analysed a staggering 12,000 items – over half the items listed in the Argos catalogue – in order to get a more realistic picture While products from IKEA in Dublin were ‘only’ 8pc more expensive on average in comparison to those in the Belfast store, with Argos Ireland, on average, a product on is 24pc more expensive that the same product on the UK site.

“These averages disguise a multitude of savings, and there are literally hundreds of products that are 40pc-200pc more expensive in Irish Argos stores compared to UK stores,” says Smyth. An example of this kind of difference was a 52-inch high-definition Sony LCD TV up north. This product is listed as €3339.99 on the Irish site but comes in at only €2,213 (£1899.99) on the UK site,”

This survey shows the discrepancies in pricing across different jurisdictions for Argos and IKEA but these are not the only companies that are taking advantage of its customers practically all of the large UK Based companies operating in the republic are at the same game.

It would appear that the government is turning a blind eye to its citizens’ being ripped off

When the current government is fleecing its own citizens’

They are setting a fine example!

Rip-off Republic is alive and well even in this depression

Get even and vote No to Lisbon 2 then they will have to listen to us the people !
