Ireland budget: Republic braced for high taxes and lower welfare payments

Dec 9, 2010 at 4:15 AM | Registered CommenterDailyBail
10 days after that march people took to the streets for another protest, a number of groups/marches converged on the Dáil (Irish Parliament buildings). Unfortunately this time it was night time and I didnt quite as many placrards....

Your house - whether you're paying or not - has been stolen from you.

And you, the American sheeple, refuse to rise, refuse to demand it stop, refuse to demand these people go to prison, and you continue to be "sated" by nothing more than the stock market going up, while your home is stolen out from under you.

You're going to lose again America, and this time it's your fault, as the evidence that you're being robbed has been stuck under your nose - both by people like me in The Ticker and by people like Bill Black, who saw the same damn game run in the 1980s and got over a thousand people prosecuted for it in the S&L crisis.

Go ahead and ignore this folks. Tell us that it's "getting better."

Where the HELL is the IRA while the PTB may be destroying their country?

Celtic Tiger

From 1995 to 2000 GDP rate growth ranged between 7.8 and 11.5%. The rate then slowed to between 4.4 to 6.5% from 2001 to 2007. During that period the Irish GDP rose dramatically to equal then eventually surpass that of all but one state in Western Europe.


Nobody was complaining much then...........right? How many of those marchers had such a 'social conscience' before 2008 cost them personally?

You know, what changed in 2008? If nothing much, and the earlier Irish success was part of what led to the crisis......why should we be especially sympathetic? Wouldn't that be missing the point?

D.B. You really have to do something with the way the slide show plays. Clicking the pic repeats each one B & F, doesn't change to next pic. Dumb time consuming process, who ever thunk it up.
Jul 30, 2011 at 2:57 PM | Unregistered CommenterNorman
I know Norman. Supposedly the next upgrade from Squarespace, the platform on which the site is built, will have a fix for the slideshows.

@TLNL I'm not sure anyone is asking for sympathy for the Irish people. I'm well aware of the real estate bubble that drove the growth. I simply enjoyed the photos.

Thanks Chunga. I will look for an archived version of the show and post it if I can find it.

@THNL, Do you remember MBNA? A former Governor of Maine once said (about MBNA) "' The only thing they emit is money"..... That governor, Angus S King is now involved in the Wind Energy scam. So isn't his son.... Think enron and broadband in ireland too.

Wall Street protests to come to Boston


Get the word out!

These pictures are from a demostration which occured some months ago. I think it's bad of the Daily Bail to post them now and make people think that the Irish are out marching at the moment. Take it from me, we aren't, and more's the pity.

How am I trying to fool anyone? All of the comments are dated. I think it's obvious this protest is not current. That's not the point.

There may have been multiple arrests in front of the Bank of America building in Boston.

Last night after work and cocktails, I wandered over to the Federal Reserve building here in Hog Butcher to the World. Protesters were out in force, festive and yet polite. This is the most considerate group of protesters I think you can find. For example, they are super-vigilant about making sure the sidewalk is clear for pedestrians to pass in front of the Fed.

I introduce myself to a few protesters, handing them my card and offering to pick up cheap cigarettes in Vietnam, IN this weekend. (A pack is close to $10 in Chi; $5 in IN.)

Then I start in on the banks, walking anyone willing to listen through the wheel of fraud: loan origination fraud, foreclosure fraud, MBS fraud, accounting fraud, CDS fraud, and--yes, you knew it--bailout fraud. They are interested. I'm not sure exactly why. Perhaps they are bemused by a middle-aged businessy-looking guy losing his shit screaming at a Federal Reserve branch building.

But they're an earnest bunch. And polite as you could ask for, real good kids. You can't help but feel for them. Would you take on debt to go to college or grad school now given risk/reward? Fuck no. I'd learn to arc-weld.

My guess is they'll grow, even though recent weather here is pointing to a bleak bleak winter.

Thanks for the anecdote cheyenne. I plan to have more on the Chicago crowd when I have time.

The whole spectrum of the -isms have failed.

Capitalism is a failure.

Socialism is a failure.

Communism is a failure.

Constitutionalism is a failure.

Fascism is a failure.

Liberalism is a failure.

Progressivism is a failure.

Libertarianism is a failure.

Conservatism is a failure. All for one reason.

Humans are maladapted to mass society. In fact, there is a neuro-biological limit of how many other humans with whom another human can maintain stable social relationships. It's called Dunbar's Number, after British anthropologist Robin Dunbar.

No -ISMic organizational arrangement has the ability to change human neuro-biological limits. One may as well expect humans to run 3 minute miles as to make capitalism or socialism work.

Because humans evolved and are highly adapted to a Non-State* sociopolitical typology.

Anyone else watching Yanks-Tigers? This is fucking baseball.

If you dig the game and like hitting parks, allow me to recommend Comerica. It's way better than Miller Park, which is way better then Wrigley. Just sayin.

When the game's over, you can gamble your ass off acorss the street.

Could we get the f***ing Irish slideshow off the lead, please!!!
Oct 4, 2011 at 10:18 PM | Unregistered CommenterMark
Yanks are smart to protect their lead. Pull the pitcher.

Jesus. If only our monetary authorities were 1/2 as smart as jock straps.

I will remove the Irish slideshow when I have finished building a slideshow of the Wall Street protests. What you don't realize is that every day about 60% of our 15,000 unique visitors have NEVER been to the site before. Not once. And so the slideshow is new for them, and it demonstrates protest. Lastly, it provides pageviews, which provides revenue which pay for our servers. You are free to read and comment. But don't tell me how to run this site.

Cheyenne...yeah...watching the game...or I was... I took an hour off. but now I'm back to reading, watching videos, and preparing new posts. I hate this fucking job sometimes.
Oct 4, 2011 at 10:52 PM | Registered CommenterDailyBail
Gosh DB, hear I thought you loved the job. Oh well, better you than me. You truly have the balls to tough it out like you do. Kudos to you.
Oct 4, 2011 at 11:11 PM | Unregistered CommenterNorman
Thanks Norman...it's love-hate. Nice to have a voice, but the job literally never ends. Serious blogging destroys the soul, in a certain way. I have never worked harder at anything in my life. It is a 14-hour per day job, 6 or 7 days per week. And no vacations.

I'm not trying to blow my own horn here, but Yves posts a few stories per day, Mish the same, Ritholtz does 5 or 6 I think, Zero Hedge pushes out the content but there are several paid Tyler Durdens, Denninger does 5 or so, and I do 12-14 per day during the week and another 12-15 every weekend (usually). I'm not joking (or looking for sympathy) but it makes for a shitty life doing what I try to do.

Oh well, cue the tiny violins for DB. Back to work on the next story.
