An Irishman Speaks His Mind

Tyler Durden's picture


Somehow we think the distinguished Irish gentleman will not make it on CNBC: in under two minutes he explains everything there is to know about modern kleptocratic ponzinomics.

Since it's "An Irishman Abroad...." I'm guessing he wouldn't actually be in Ireland, but abroad, lending some sense to the actual headline. And since he's not dressed like a broad, at least not in this video, he might actually BE abroad, i.e. not in his home country. Rather than being a broad, which is so 1930s that it's not even funny anymore.

Sinn Fein have made it quite clear, in no uncertain terms, that they do not support this budget, for all the good that stance has (not) done . Ineffective, mb, but hardly 'sold out', or 'co-opted'. They're tryin' to play the game the acceptable way, that's all. They were told if they did, their voice would be heard. If it doesn't start making a real difference for the Irish people, it probably won't be long before they revert, and so far I have seen no reason to question their allegiance.

a one euro deduction in the national minimum wage?? so corporate profits can increase, so tax reciepts can increase but not for services or ireland, but so that bond holders in uk/germany and the imf can get paid back? let's say you are there and had nothing to do with anything. at minimum wage it's already a shit job! you are already a fucking slave, now all of a sudden you gotta make at minimum wage one euro less?!?  for what? you dont even have a mortgage! you had nothing to do with this shit! now it just comes out of the blue! a fucking reduction of your life by one euro per hour every fucking day you work?! for something you had nothing to do with, it's just imposed on you! that is utter slavery and bullshit.  I would rather die if that was my country than live under that kind of bullshit, and believe me i would die taking out a bunch of fuckers with me! The tyranny cannot get clearer than that! you can't see that, you cant see what the fuck is going on, you can't see shit! not you personally, but the proverbial yous. y'all as it were. proverbially.

right - only Nazis had a beef with Jews.. I guess Hitler is a 2000 year old vampire


Between the years 250 CE and 1948 CE - a period of 1,700 years - Jews have experienced more than eighty expulsions from various countries in Europe - an average of nearly one expulsion every twenty-one years. Jews were expelled from England, France, Austria, Germany, Lithuania, Spain, Portugal, Bohemia, Moravia and seventy-one other countries.

Quote: by Ion Mihai Pacepa, Romanian intelligence

"History always repeats itself, and if you can live two lives, you have an even greater chance of seeing that repetition with your own eyes. During the last six years of my other life, as a Romanian intelligence general, the main task of the Soviet bloc espionage community was to transform Yasser Arafat’s war against Israel and its main supporter, the United States, into an armed doctrine of the whole Islamic world.

America was our main enemy, and a billion adversaries could inflict far greater damage on it than could a mere one million. Islamic anti-Semitism ran deep. Our task was to convert its historical hatred of the Jews into a new hatred of the United States, by portraying this land of freedom as an “imperial Zionist country” financed by Jewish money and run by a rapacious “Council of the Elders of Zion,” the Kremlin’s epithet for the US Congress.

According to KGB theorists, the Islamic world was a petri dish in which we could nurture a virulent strain of America-hate. Islamic cultures had a taste for nationalism, jingoism and victimology. Their illiterate, oppressed mobs could be whipped up to a fever pitch. Terrorism and violence against America would flow naturally from their religious fervor.

We had only to keep repeating, over and over, that the United States was a “Zionist country” bankrolled by rich Jews. Islam was obsessed with preventing the infidel’s occupation of its territory, and it would be highly receptive to our dogma that American imperialism wanted to transform the rest of the world into a Jewish fiefdom."



What works on the Muslim works on the Westerner, the Soviets' ultimate intended target.

As a rule, I think that any time you talk to a reporter every other response ought to be either "Your entire industry is corrupt you know." or "All of you just fuck off."

You might get yourself on YouTube. Failing that you will have perhaps helped some lost soul grow the balls to take up a more reputable career.

The Isles are definitely heating up. As protest follows protest they tend to heat up. 

There is protest about the grand themes: globalization, banksters, Europeanism

But there's the more practical level which as always is the main motivation for anger, protest and defiance: economic injustice. In this biflationary world, it's not hard to spot injustice: as paper assets inflate all over the world (stocks, bonds, futures) making the rich and powerful richer and taking prices up for average people, net worth of average people is deflating fast: income stagnation, employment, retirement funds and government contributions. 

So today in London the protest is about tripling the cost of tuition. 

In other words, when governments today use the word 'Austerity", what they mean is austerity for you, not for us. Because the government is going whole hog supporting banker salaries and employment, depleting treasuries everywhere, but something like educating the next generations of citizens is so much less important that we won't pay for it and tuition has to triple.

He's just a "little guy".

No match for the 800-lb. gorilla otherwise known as "Uncle Thug", otherwise known as the U.S Government.

He'll be smushed like a little bug, just like all other "dissenters" trying to rise up against the machine.

Nobody is really worried about what is going on in Europe.

As long as these "junker" IPO's out of China keep going up 20% a day...

BAC up 3%, trading at HOD.....

No worries there.

By the way, all the Fast Money boys including Dr. J "Ponytail" is buying puts hand over fist on gold and gold stocks.

Which means gold's run is probably not finished yet.

A mere two days ago, there was much rejoicing that "BAC is toast on this news!" by the crowd here. When I questioned what they were talking about since BAC was up a bit, I was of course met with the chorus of junkers with the mantra, "just wait..."

Ok, I've waited and BAC is flying over the past two days.

LMFAO... a picture is worth a thousand words.

My only two equity holdings in the last year have been long CEF and short BAC.  I admit short BAC is out of spite as much as any fundamental reason.  Watching BAC on a day-to-day basis it's pretty damn funny how gamed the stock is.  Every few days it spikes on no volume and no news only to slowly decay over time.  I've got my stop in place because fundamentals are fairly irrelevant to equities now, but I'm hoping I don't get stopped out before wikileaks releases whatever they have.

Almost verbatim what the locals told me when I was there last week. As one man told me they were 'fook'n out of their mind fur building more houses than people living in Ireland...for fooksake!'

I love the way they talk...right to the point.

BofA up nearly 14% in seven trading sessions. WTF. 2% a day. They're in such good shape. I guess that's the result of never having to realize a loss or do any actual accounting.

There is still a huge amount of Euros in Ireland - I suspect now the banks are faking it and have little cash left as us Micks are real mad - if enough join the dots and buy PMs with  Euros that still have value then we will move financial mountains.


Again I was in the bank the other day to lodge the cash that I took out in the week before December 7 and immediately wired the money to silver heaven from another bank desk - maybe not the most clandestine of methods but it felt good.

You could feel the anger and tension amongest the waiting customers.

They say Germans get angry not by protesting but by taking money out - I would bet that on a per capita basis we have easily beaten the Germans in this regard.

“We want them taxed at 99 per cent because we believe it’s immoral to use taxpayers’ money that was used to bail out the banks to pay bonuses,” Fine Gael deputy leader James Reilly told Irish television.

“Let me make this clear, they’re entitled to be paid it, we’re entitled to tax it,” he said.
