    My modest proposal.

    My modest proposal.

    K. McCaffrey — Since the 1980s, when one third of their population fell below the poverty line, the nation of Ireland has seen tremendous growth. This is a testament to the glory of a nation of people who had been purged of autonomy for hundreds of years. In fact, Ireland was one of the richest countries in the world in 2006. Maybe that had something to do with a fifth of the workforce employed to build houses; or that rents had fallen to less than one percent of the purchase price; or that in ten years lending to construction had risen from eight percent of Irish lending to twenty-eight percent. Really, though, it just seems like the Irish were destined for prosperity. Finally, after years of turmoil, the Irish had had financial greatness thrust upon them! Nearly ninety percent of the country owned homes! People were migrating to the once misfortunate nation. Ireland was vindicated!

    Now it seems like the rest of Europe has decided to ruin the party for the Irish. The Polish workers, who had come in throngs to build Irish homes, left, the recipients of generous Irish loans during the 90s are ungrateful cheaters, and greedy bankers looked to soak money from the government to stay afloat. The Irish once again fell victim to external forces, subjugated by the death pact that is the European Union since the rest of Europe has decided to be jealous and not play with Irish banks, who may have fallen into a rough patch or two. Their triumph of home ownership and economic prowess has been taken away from the people; touted for being so fast, so elastic, that only the word “bubble” could describe their growth!

    If the past thirty years of Irish history shows us anything, though, it’s simply that the Irish cannot survive amongst Europeans. No, the people of Europe are far too threatened by the Irish people’s clever dispositions, renowned educated class, and resilience to being deterred by large statistical odds against them. The Irish are doomed to be cut down by the legs from their neighbors, even when it is so obvious that they are the exception to the rule of bloated European welfare states.

    So what are they to do? The Irish cannot change the agenda of its European partners, nor can it trust its politicians, who carry on the legacy of British governance. The Irish people must band together and do what they do best by serving the rest of the world with the utmost selflessness. By opening the world’s largest island resort, Ireland will not have to kowtow to arbitrary continental standards, nor will they have to worry about buying up the country from one another. If Al Gore’s predictions are even close to true, the Irish and Russians are sitting on prime real estate for beachfront vacation investment. Shareholders from around the globe could reap the benefits of the Celtic Tiger yet again instead of acting so jealous and vindictive.

    The Irish are above the whole “self-governance” business. Why bother doing that when they have a true talent in extracting money from other people?

    Irish people on forums I'd had dealings with for years, who liked to talk down the US, and had laughed about how the US citizen was uneducated, etc.. were crying in their beer about how cruel it was for Microsoft, etc.. to lie that way, and abuse the trust of the, sniff, sniff, good hearted, hard working Irish people.

    You see, by that time, things were starting to go belly up in Ireland. The bills were coming due, taxes were rising. Bono, the well known singer and know it all and charity fraudster, was demanding that Ireland's tax rates be raised, especially the corporate rates, and Ireland's tax loophole for artists, actors, and musicians, be closed.. all because Bono wanted Ireland's tax revenue to be raided to fund his scams, ie pay for different schemes, such as vaccine trials, that Bono and Bill Gates, among others don't actually contribute to, but invest heavily in the stock. Ireland's taxes were raised, as Bono wanted, though Bono moved all his money off shore, to the tax haven of some Scandinavian country, and he didn't have to pay more.

    And those Polish and other foreign workers weren't better, or harder working, in fact they were and continue to be sub par, but they bled Ireland dry. You see, the neo-con and globalist lies that immigration, and outsourcing and off-shoring grow economies, are just that, lies. It's part of the neo-con and globalist left's desire to collapse economies, force them into dependency and debt, so as to be more easily fleeced even further, of their nation's resources, infrastructure and their people enslaved.

    Cheap foreign labor is part of that scam. Citizens, who'd work and support themselves, support local businesses and industries are what grow economies. Cheap foreign labor, are a taxpayer burden, they are parasites. They don't spend much of their wages in the US, they live on subsidies and send cash wages on remittances, which further bleeds the US economy dry.

    Now, my intent wasn't to be snarky, and I apologize if I sound that way, it's just that this is all too close to the bone, and my experience with the Irish, turned me from someone who used to take pride in the Irish heritage I share, to someone who loathes and detests the simpering, greedy and grasping Irish nationals and their willing corruption and their hate for America, and refusal to ever take responsibility for themselves and their actions (in case you haven't heard or read what they blame for the so called Celtic Tiger, going bye-bye, they blame the US for that, not themselves.

    M, have you read Jonathan Swift?
