IRELAND’S SWAMP – But who can drain it?

This page is under construction and far from finished.

Some of what I post on these pages are from “left” and some are from “right” as we may have traditionally known it.  I am neither left nor right when it comes to politics – it’s just that I have woken up.  In waking up I don’t have to agree with everything left or everything right – I can choose my topics on which to agree with any political person, writer or organisation.  My allegiance is to what is good, normal, right, decent for the human race, not exclusively for the rich 1% to the detriment and slavery of the 99%.

While you read this page I would like you to keep one question in mind:  “How does this affect me?”

For the last 60 years Ireland has gone from corruption scandal to corruption scandal.  Tribunals and investigations take so many YEARS that we lose interest – is that the intention?  We lose track of who did what.  We have become immune and accept that nobody ever pays.  What the older generation forgets and the younger generations  probably never realized is

  • We (the 99% majority of ordinary people) pay for everything in this world – EVERYTHING.  We generate the money. Money always goes up the pyramid – rarely down in any meaningful, concrete or practical way.
  • The big money circulates around the top third of the pyramid
  • When it comes to scandals, tribunals, investigations and compensations, we pay for the court costs.  We pay for the compensation if there is any, in most cases – because in most cases – nothing happens, the accused doesn’t pay.
  • The victims, when there are victims taking a case, rarely see an actual cent much less a euro.
  • In Ireland, with every passing year the number of regulations imposed, the costs imposed make it less and less possible for anyone from the bottom of the pyramid to start a business and progress beyond a certain level of success, if they even manage to stay in business.
  • Our Irish and global society is a mafia of politicians, civil servants, professionals, court systems, judges, lawyers, barristers, gardai, corporations, banker, big business, corporations, media whose only aim is to keep coming up with new ways to have us generate money for them, while only allowing us to receive a livable allowance.
  • They live the high life and they con us via numerous gurus to believe that if we just work a little harder or a little smarter we too can climb the ladder.  The reality is that few do it honestly.
  • They live the high life AT OUR EXPENSE.  I say this because I follow the money trails.
  • They abuse us – best example – see the scandal about the horse meat, that meat and the rotten meat it was mixed with was intended for you and me to eat.  They are not eating burgers!  Please think about this.
  • At this stage – they laugh at us because we are asleep.

We forget the corruption.  Maybe if we gather it all in one place, the penny will drop with more people and they will wake up.

Donald Trump can achieve peace in the Middle East because he wanted to.  That’s it – just simply because HE WANTED TO.  Our politicians/judges/tribunals can’t and won’t reach settlements and endings to anything BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL INVOLVED one way or another in something – a spider’s web.  And when you go really looking – you find they are all connected to one another either by family or business.

Some things are as plain as the nose on your face.  We have been conned into believing we can’t see, can’t understand the intricacies of court cases or issues, that we need lawyers and media to interpret for us.  Sometimes we do because most legal stuff is written in “legalese” a language to confuse and manipulate.  However, when you sit back, clear your mind and look at facts, it is quite easy to distinguish the important issue – Good from Bad, Right from Wrong.  Or it might be if we had media who reported facts instead of opinion – owners’ opinion.

Is Irish media ownership too concentrated? Here’s who is behind the major players in the Irish media – they control your opinion.

The first two links below are just to set the scene for what may or may not develop into a wider scandal involving government ministers and public representatives over the coming days, weeks or months in Ireland.
