I think it's fair to say, without fear of contradiction, that this week makes it official that the lunatics are running the asylum. If it wasn't for the election of a new pope, even RTE might have had to deal with this fact.
This week a number of things happened that finally eliminate any sense of well-being I retained about the future of this state.
1 - a TD gets to decide he has no case to answer after trying to score political points highlighting "corruption" among Gardai and then having to admit he sought and availed of said corruption
2 - his tax defaulting stable mate, while sucking on the tax payers teat, tells us it's okay, because we all make mistakes
3- the government celebrate putting the current and future tax payer Ä5bn more in debt as if it's some kind of achievement as opposed to a recognition by the "markets" that Ireland would rather drive it's own citizens to suicide that to default on debt
4 - the government decides that people in mortgage arrears are more important than high earning tax payers, so prefer to tax more to pay the debts of "struggling" mortgage holders
It's just insane....our leaders have no moral authority over us, but continually demonstrate complete contempt for us and any fair system of justice and natural law.
