No shit. We march for every cause in the U.S. but apparently the one that enslaves all of us, is of no consequence.
"What hurts me the most is why is the taxpayer paying for the IMF. Why are we bailing out the banks. These are the people who took the risk, let them take the hurt, let them feel the hurt." That is the common refrain of the tens of thousands of people who took to the streets today in Dublin, protesting against the government's rescue of various European banks (and Goldman Sachs) investment losses. More from RTE: "Gardaí said that around 10,000 people started the march, however the crowd swelled to around 50,000 people as it moved down the quays. Speakers at the march had estimated that the crowd was between 100,000 and 150,000. A small group of around 400 protestors are currently at the front gates of Leinster House. Some 60 gardaí are lining the footpath in front of the building, with crash barriers erected in front of them."
You know come to think of it, the word "austerity" is just a smokescreen. I think the Irish are angry because in order to take the bailout, they have to actually make and enforce the cuts now. Feel the pain. In America, they'll just try to blow smoke up our asses until somebody finally admits we are broke. No pain for us. Yet.
Late entry. The Irish people say screw the banks. Let them default. This is precisely why the banker controlled eurozone refused to let the Irish government put the measure to a vote. They knew the crazy Irish would say up yours. Precisely what we should have done. http://www.zerohedge.com/article/europe-goes-completely-mad-suggestion-irish-default-demanded-57-irish-population
