(Is Dublin 4 a mental or physical postal code?)
You would defend a brainwashed Dublin 4 spoofer?
You'd never catch me defending them. Can't even think why anyone would label me one unless of course they are, as you say, an idiot.
(If forced to, I'll happily devote a post to the antics of the clown that is Charlie Bird but not now...I'm doing a bad job at trying to work)
So you would defend the deluded, the erroneous and, possibly, the dangerous while I would not.
Is that what you are saying is the political difference between us is?
I won't defend you. But I will, up to a certain point, tolerate you.
In that big spirit of mine, I would not open a concentration camp for you.
Can I rest assured your confused minions would not have me in one?
That is the difference between the horrible rotten Irish Republicans/ anti banksters and the West Brit/Gombeen/Liberal spoofers.
We are genuine.we try for all the people(maybe we mess up sometimes/most of the time but we pick ourselves up and keep trying.
Now as the state collapses who is trying to help the people those who never accepted its legitimacy from the beginning
Whilst thoes who founded,nurtured and milked it...continue fiddling and spoofing as our people suffer and their children leave..
Who are WE?
Who is trying to help?Now as the state collapses who is trying to help the people those who never accepted its legitimacy from the beginning
And whoever they are, they are only trying to help that very small group who "never accepted its legitimacy from the beginning"
I think you'll find those who "founded" it...are not around anymore.
And the ones I know of would be turning in their graves both at the sins of their successors and the claims of those who speak in their name.
I'd say it would be instructive to do a statistical analysis of mouthing of Republican platitudes versus complicity in the moral and financial bankruptcy of the State.
He who protested loudest about the 4th green field was often he far more preoccupied with greenbacks.
It's such simple poetry for crooks to feed the gullible.
Who are WE?
WE are the rotten hardcore Republican/anti Bankster love our people gang.
I recall the first bit of advice I got as I sat in an NYC bar under a 'Thatcher Wanted for Murder' Bobby Sands poster was "Never trust a niggah"
I'd sooner sip with an Etonian
PS Sinsin - you sound like a young CJ.
But you are speaking about FF republicans.
There was the principled rump who stood by "that all of the children of the nation be treated equally"
Refused their War of Independence pensions,interned....went hungry in the South.
Many had to leave for The US because FF/FG blacklisted them for employment.
Hence NORAID etc....that is who many of those people were,descendent s of Republicans driven out of the FS.
So it continued through the thirties against the Blueshirts,
the Forties..seeking German arms(mistake?)
Many of those people and their families are still there...not SF supporters but when the crisis hits they will selfishly step forward to help the people...not for money or recognition....but for love.
You may mock them but that is your loss.
Fintan O'Toole? You cheapen yourself by your adulation of him.
Kevbar we inhabit two parallel universes but the difference is I would fight long and hard for your right to insult me.
I also try to make allowance for your opinions by trying to imagine your background.
But hey I just lapped it up and thought of Grandpops in Frongoch and Lewes.
On that subject I don't recall any cheques in the family post box for the assistance in shaping Sunningdale.not SF supporters but when the crisis hits they will selfishly step forward to help the people...not for money or recognition....but for love.

Interesting piece on this from the irish echo online - http://irishecho.com/?p=72846
Here’s a 9 minute piece on the story that ran on the PBS Newshour earlier this week.
As a general rule the most successful man in life is the man who has the best information. Benjamin Disraeli
Secrecy is for losers. For people who do not know how important the information really is.
Daniel Patrick Moynihan - Secrecy: The American Experience (1998)
McIntyre and Ed Moloney to appeal:
http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/...323462973.htmlTwo writers who interviewed paramilitaries as part of a Boston College project on the Troubles have announced they are to take a case to the US Supreme Court in a bid to keep the files confidential.
The statement came from Anthony McIntyre, a writer and former IRA prisoner, and author Ed Moloney.
