The Great Shell Game

With all the talk of who should govern the country, and how much Brian Cowen drank.
There is still the fact that the Irish people are being led around like hapless sheep.
It would not matter a damn who got into power, because the banks, EU and the IMF
(in the near future) would be the ones calling all the shots.

The Great Shell Game

With all the talk of who should govern the country, and how much Brian Cowen drank.
There is still the fact that the Irish people are being led around like hapless sheep.
It would not matter a damn who got into power, because the banks, EU and the IMF
(in the near future) would be the ones calling all the shots.

Example 1: We were told on the 26th of September 2010 by Minister John Curran that the Medical Services in the Galway region would have to fund themselves out of the their current budgets, yet the bank bail out does not have any set budget it has to adhere to. Instead it is a contant open sore that can't be healed.

Example 2: Minister John Gormley told people in 2006 that Fluoride in the water supply can cause cancer. Yet we now find ourselves in the situation that we might have to pay (through his proposals) for the very water Minister Gormley condemed on camera.

Example 3: We now find ourselves in the situation that consultants who were paid to advise the government on how to avoid economic disaster are the very same ones who are helping others behind the scenes to buy our debt in the form of bonds, with a crippling interest rate attached that adds insult to injury.

How did we become this nation of sheep so quickly? Our revolutionary ancestors would be spinning in their graves if they could see how we let ourselves become so wrapped up with games shows, talent contests and disgusting celebs, that we let our country be stolen right from under us.

When we start to see the ones behind the throne that control events in this country, we will then start to have a chance at getting to the root of our problems. And hopefully fix our country.

The crisis in Ireland did not happen by accident, we were warned by smart people who were dismissed as madmen and fools, who should go somewhere and kill themselves.
Unfortunately the sad fact is Ireland's financial dimise was a calculated event brought about to erode its sovereignty, and force it into a global cesspool of debt and dependency that will hang around the necks of the citizens of Ireland for decades.

Having an awakening is one thing, having the courage to combat what has and is being done to Ireland is another. Once your eyes have been opened to the downright evil and malice behind Ireland's woes, you can never be deceived again.

Whats the matter with people in Government ? Ireland's Petroleum Affairs Division state in their Report, that there is as much Gas & Oil off the west coast of Ireland as the Middle East. 50 trillion cubic meters of gas, 130 Billion Barrels of Oil, found so far: Why didn't the Irish Government do their maths before sending Ray Burke in behind closed doors? 50 Trillion x $211.56 of gas is how much ?
10 Quadrillion dollars for the gas so far & 9.2 Trillion for the Oil so far found. $hells gas is up to 87 Billion. And the Irish Government are looking for 3 Billion in cuts this year again, Ray Burke changed the law that would have given our Country half of this money , remember he went to prison for taking bribes::: So NOW THE IRISH PEOPLE WHO HAVE KEPT THIS COUNTRY GOING FOR THE LAST 60 OR 70 YEARS HAVE TO SUFFER ! Because of one or two corrupt Government Ministers. CUT BACKS ON HEALTH, SCHOOLS, even CHRISTMAS, just because of one corrupt minister and his buddy, WE can change this back to the way it was or even better70-30, 80-20 its Called PROFIT SHARING AGREEMENT, THEN IRELAND WILL have its right place in the WORLD COMMENCE INSTEAD of a BANKRUPT COUNTRY. P.S. MINISTER MARTIN is ACTING FOR OTHER COUNTRIES OIL& Gas INVESTMENT TO GET THEM A RIGHT SHARE OF THEIR RESOURCES , BUT DOES HE DO ANYTHING ABOUT HIS OWN COUNTRY N000000! Stand up &Speak out . RESPECT TO & FOR THE IRISH PEOPLE !!!
