Trying very hard not to be cynical

I see our gubmint has decided to give us Plebs what we want.

I confess this has come as a complete shock to me.

My understanding of democracy is that they promise the sun moon and stars before an election and then ignore every promise they have made once they get in.  A gubmint's job is to ignore the people.  A gubmint's job is to look after themselves and give their pals in Big Business all sorts of tax breaks at our expense.  A gubmint's job is to rob us blind and spend our money on their pals and their pet projects.  It is not a gubmint's job to listen to the people, or at least that is what I have learnt over the years.

So they are now talking about not introducing extra taxes?  The cynic in me says that is because there isn't anything left to tax, but I must be charitable.

They say they are reducing cuts in spending?  There is a little hint of the old gubmint here – if they don't reduce cuts, they are still going to require shed loads of our money?  But I must try and be positive.

They say there are going to give us more houses?  That one confuses me a bit as the country is awash with deserted housing estates but the gubmint knows best, doesn't it?

All this talk of not increasing taxes is making my head spin.

Am I dreaming?

Or is there an election coming up?

  1. On topic? Moi? Can't decide but no matter.

    5. COMMAND AND CONTROL: The courts and governments are the system slaves within, bought and paid for where the true command and control aspects are the POLICE/MILITARY as the front line dogs and fear contractors for those above the courts and governments such as the BANKS/RELIGIONS and those that control them. The courts and governments are merely the filler for this “sandwich” of deception and illusion. Without the ability to CONTRACT via any/all NAMES at the front line level, the whole system of control is destroyed, most importantly those at the very top of this spiritual slavery pyramid. Without the NAME, all levels above are ultimately annihilated completely.

    Taken from here.

    Do read the rest of it. It's as brilliant as understanding of the man and woman trap I have ever come across.

    • All true.  The only thing no one mentions is how to de-register a NAME!  Deed poll would hardly be appropriate?!

      • Getting back on topic GD, you've really got to do something about Irish politics in the imminent local and European elections. Give your first, second and third preference votes to independent-looking candidates whom you deem to be least electable in your constituency. It'll keep the winners sweating until the final count.

        • That is the system I have used to date [first preferences to some pretty weird candidates], but I am beginning to have second thoughts.  Voting is really playing their game, and if I don't vote at least I know I had no hand act nor part in electing the cretins that do get in.

          Decisions, decisions…..

        • It'll keep the winners sweating until the final count.

          Makes not a blind bit of difference as government will win. Democracy is rule by mob and believing that voting gives one a say is delusional thinking.
          Took me decades to come to these conclusions. I used to berate people who wouldn't vote then the penny dropped. No mater what shade government is it's still government.

  2. Could try harder GD! 🙂

    I think there is an election coming up all right.. or else there's some kind of local 'ugliest people on posters' competition going on.  🙂

    • Those posters are in fact a very subtle advertising campaign on behalf of Adobe Photoshop.  Leastwise they are a powerful testament to the latter's abilities.
