TIME...is on my side!

category national | anti-capitalism | news report author Friday October 05, 2012 20:42author by Costas Avramidis Report this post to the editors

That pat on the back to our "glorious leader Enda" in Time Magazine fails to come to terms BIG TIME with the reality on the ground here in Ireland.

Just in case you have forgotten what has happened to all of us since Enda and Eamonn got in power:
More than 400.000 thousand people on the live register.
Thousands of people migrating to Australia and Canada and many other places each month.
Cuts to the weakest groups in our society, people with special needs, carers, basically people without voice in our society because of their small numbers.
Cuts on salaries and pay freezes.
Increases in direct and indirect taxes plus introduction of HOUSEHOLD TAX and WATER Charges coming up soon.
Demolition of the Health system.
Introduction of Students fees.
Increase in suicides
Increase in alcoholism, drugs intake and homelessness.
Soup kitchens and charities are under pressure trying to cope with the vast amount of the new homeless and the poor.

I suppose now its pretty obvious why Enda is at the cover of TIME magazine!

Yes. It's because the Elite who have wanted to do all these things for ages want to reward Enda for selling out his own people so very efficiently into serfdom.

The excerpt just below is from an e-mail sent yesterday to Prime Minister Enda Kenny TD:

"Finally, I would like to remind you that -- as I tried to stress to you and your colleagues this morning -- I am very firmly convinced that my particular case represents just a very, very tiny proportion of the overall 'government corruption, crime, cover-ups, and impunity' phenomenon which I believe -- as a direct result of my own completely independent, lengthy, and ongoing investigations (since mid 1998) into such matters -- continues to run completely wild, and to be more or less totally and dangerously out of control in many important respects at the present time: from the viewpoint of humanity as a whole."

A copy of the full text of the e-mail in question, which was sent simultaneously to (among others) a sizable international selection of senior politicians and lawyers, can be viewed at:

I believe this article titled;

Iceland’s Economy now growing faster than the U.S. and EU after arresting corrupt bankers:

with the link below, puts Kenny's praises in perspective.
