Libertas: 7 days to go and still no policies!

Posted by Jason O on May 29, 2009 in Irish Politics, Lisbon Treaty

Still no sign of a Libertas manifesto or programme despite the promises on their own website.

Libertas: The transparent party with the secret manifesto.

Could it be that it was impossible to negotiate such a document between such a diverse bunch of reformers, religious conservatives, and people who are, shall we say, a little too fond of the stiff right arm?

Aren’t  these the same people who claim that all the diversity of a continent of 500 million people can be contained in a 25 page treaty?

Of course, they never told us the font size, did they?

This wonderful example of creative lateral thinking was forwarded to me.

Helpful site for those voting in the North.

The Euro Elections: What really matter to voters in the North.

An interesting site here. Curious how the anti-EU parties in the North all have the snout out for more EU cash. How honourable of them. And no, unionists, it’s not your money anyway, you don’t make any contribution of note to the treasury. Whether it is the British teat or the EU teat, it’s always someone else’s teat.

The Anti-Super Rat Candidate.

Posted by Jason O on May 29, 2009 in Irish Politics

Dun Laoghaire Town Hall: Not to work for Super Rats.

Dun Laoghaire Town Hall: No to working for Super Rats!

I recently got a leaflet through the door listing a particular candidates “priorities”. They declared that this candidate:

“…cares about how your council is managed and your money is spent.” Well, he is running for the council. I would have been pleasantly surprised if he had announced that he “didn’t give a f**k” about how the council is managed, and intended spending “all your money on hookers and coke. And more hookers.”

“…demands accountability in the way the council is run.” Whatever that means. Let’s see if he will support roll-calling and posting on the web all votes on the council, so we can see how councillors vote. If he does, he’s a man of his word.

“…wants to see straightforward communication between the council and local residents.” So, no more of those letters in ancient hebrew telling you that your bin day has changed.

“… believes the council should work for you.” As opposed to working for whom, a race of intelligent Super Rats? the Illuminatti? The Government of Abu Dhabi?  

My question: I wonder, can this candidate name any other specific candidate who does not believe in those things? I suspect he believes that oxygen should be in plentiful supply, and that the laws of physics must be enforced throughout the county.  He also takes a tough line on the issue of the Earth revolving aroung the Sun.

Still, at least he’s taking no shit off the Super Rats.

A little bit of (Science) fiction.

Posted by Jason O on May 29, 2009 in Just stuff

Science fiction: Today's problems, tomorrow's solutions. Assuming the killer robots don't get us fiirst, the bastards.

Science fiction: Today’s problems, tomorrow’s solutions. Assuming the killer robots don’t get us first, the bastards.

A (Very) short story I wrote a while ago. How long ago? When it looked like Hillary was a shoo-in, that’s how long. 

Earth has been invaded, and the generals are telling the president how bad things are. Then an accountant suggests a possible solution. 

You can read it here.
