fmman said:It saddens me to see the decline of Ireland away from its roots. If you surf along to boards.ie politics section and try and post anything even questioning the liberal far left policies you will banned quicker than you can say mass child graves in Tuam.
RTE news, Newstalk news and just about all irish news is biased far left and a mouthpiece of the EU, never putting in the other view for balance. Since that idiot Leo has been in charge we have had gay marriage and abortion legalised. You now can't drink a drop, its zero tolerance and the Gards are out doing checks in the middle of nowhere late at night or first thing in the morning!
Give it 10 more years and I think it will be nearly as bad as England
They also want to stop (hard work) private turf cutting which my aging parents do, that heats the house for fraction of the thousands that you would spend on heating oil. How does only 300 euros a year sound for heating a house completely for 1.5 years?
Infuriating how we must (lol) respect the traditions of those coming into our country and preserve them, but the deepest of Irish traditions peat (turf) cutting must be stopped!
And the said scenery of poor rural areas which is often the only USP for tourists and locals alike is now covered in windmills at said bogs (50 at a time stretching across miles at the very top of mountain), what's more natural, the people or mechanical monstrosties on the skyline/horizon. There is a pitiful amount of electricity being generated from them, and it was never intended to make bills cheaper for the average man and woman. Like everything else in Ireland, nobody actually wants it but it only happens because we are paid off using blood money from EU grants. FREE MONEY WE PAID TOWARDS. My relatives run a totally unrelated local community organisation that were offered money from the windmill companies to play ball.
A landscape that would looked the same in 1980 as it did in 1080 AD, now changed. Good job our yes men of a puppet government.
MusicForPiano, they want to rewild the countryside but have nobody actually living in it being close to nature and themselves, everybody is running from themselves, they talk endlessly about humanity and yet will do anything to not be human.
