GATSO van attacked
This fixed camera is to catch you breaking the lights crossing the South Circular rd heading for Heuston.
The barnacle geese are back for the winter.
The Martians have landed
De Veci terrace in Queenstown (Dun Laoighre)
This seems to be a bad mix for the punter !
Today the first "Safety camera van" was attacked and burned out!
The van was parked near Dundalk on the Carrickmacross Rd. The lads smashed the front windscreen and threw petrol into the van.
At least they gave the operator time to get out before the bonfire.
If these cameras were supposed to prevent accidents they would be on minor roads where deaths have occurred. According to the maps I have looked at the cameras seem to be on streets where there has never been an accident.
We also have many unmarked GATSO vans all over the place.
From Carrickmacross to Crossmaglen it is no place for honest men.
From Carrickmacross to Crossnaglen there are no rouges, but honest men.
Two old schoactol friends meet and decide to go for lunch. One is rich ,a Millionare in fact the other has not been as lucky.
Who pays for the lunch?
Well the bankers of Europe are in town and they expect us all to pay 6.7% or more for our loan, this is the money to pay them back for the other money they gave us.
Things are up in a heap to say the least. Billions of euro have vanished, or so it seems and no one seems to be held accountable !
I feel that the reason no one has been arrested is because many of the politicians have been accepting bribes from the developers for many years, someone had to have been allowing the banks to give out more money than they had in reserve.
People are angry and the police are being trained in riot control up in the Mosney holiday camp as I write.
We Irish find it a bit hard to accept law and order, to put it mildly.
The British must have been glad to be rid of us back in 1916.
Modern world wide terrorism has its roots back to the struggle of the Fenians and the IRA through the years. I had a guy in the taxi today and we spoke on this subject. The knew all about the Phoenix park murders back on the 6th of May 1882.
Now if you go to the spot on that date you will find 2 small crosses on the spot.
Who is the person who puts them there? It is a mystery.
The exact location is on the left hand side going towards the Phoenix monument,right at the point where you can see the presidents house on your right,look along on the grass verge and there is a cross marked out in white marble chippings. This marks the exact spot.
There is a great book on the subject Moloney, Senan (2006). The Phoenix Murders: Conspiracy, Betrayal and Retribution. Dublin: Mercier Press
When you read the book you can see how nothing new has been learned in the fight against terrorism.
But he told me that the "handbook for hanging" was devised by an Irishman called Samuel Haughton. Height weight =length of drop to snap the neck and give the victim a quick death.
A craft much practiced by the Pierpoint family.
A pair of druggie types in the taxi the other day, she had been attacked by 4 men near the canal. She was like a wild Doberman and gave them a good hiding, kicking one of them in the nuts and booting him into the canal she fought the rest and the Garda came and arrested 2 of them. But her blood was up and she had given them such a beating that the Garda told her she would be done for assault. "What about my money and me phone" Some Garda are very thick.
When she was in a house doing a deal her boyfriend who was around 2 meters tall showed me where he had been mugged with a knife. there was 3 big slashes on his neck, from the back to the front. "If he had cut me going back from the front he would have cut my Jugular vein, they got me rings and a gold chain" All I could say "We buy gold no questions asked" They live in another world these people.
My old mentor told me "John be very careful and over respectful when you are talking to a Garda, they are a very big animal with a very small brain"
Very good advice too.
