Does anybody remember that episode of The Simpsons where Mr. Burns is carted off to the Mayo Clinic for tests? He's found to have every disease under the sun, living in perfect harmony, cancelling each other out to leave him still living, still breathing, still thriving.
Well that's this country under Fianna Fáil. So many ills that one overrides the next and leaves us with a behemoth of awfulness that's too great to tackle.
I'm getting pissed off reading things like, "yet we sit on our arses writing blogs about how shit things are, and nobody goes out and protests."
How the fuck can we NOT be paralysed by NAMA? By the Murphy and Ryan reports? By the outrageous shambles that is the Health Service Executive? By leadership heaves that go nowhere and change nothing? By tax after property tax after tax after good money after bad?
How the fuck can we not be paralysed by this raping of our country, and how can the way forward not be to just close our eyes and wait for it to end?
Don't expect protests, riots and insurrection. You need specificity for that kind of thing. We're too much in the mire to try and show truth to power.
