The Haircut

I received the following by email yesterday & I think it, while only a joke, does somewhat highlight the type of society we live in.

"One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut.

After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you , I'm doing community service this week.'

The florist was pleased and left the shop.

When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you , I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop.

The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a Member of the Dail came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I can not accept money from you.
I'm doing community service this week.' The TD was very happy and left the shop.

The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen TDs lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

IS IT INTENTIONAL?

I'm beginning to believe that Fianna Fail are intentionally wrecking this country at the behest of their EU Overlords, my reasoning on this stems from the fact that if its not intentional then it is the worst case of incompetence & treason ever visited on a country by it's Govt.. It seems their only duty is to ensure that the German & French banks are looked after regardless of the cost to Ireland & its citizans.

Our new Leaders do not sit in Dublin but reside in Brussels, Paris & Berlin, we have been dragged back to the days of absentee landlords & serfdom, this time the houses may be our own, but for how long? We will soon be taxed for the privilage of living in the overpriced, undervalued, negative equity homes we're struggling to pay for, because our Govt chose bondholders over stakeholders & destroyed the economy, the country & all our futures.

Bertie Ahern, Mary Harney & Fianna Fail have done more harm to Ireland & its standing & reputation abroad than the IRA did at the height of their murdering campaign, even Cromwell & the Black n' Tans caused less devastation. Lenihan & Cowen are putting together a 4 year plan, knowing full well they wont be around to implement any of it's measures, therefore hang tying the next Govt., before they even get in.

This Country needs a new Government for sure but mostly what it needs is new & effective leadership; however the only place I can see that coming from is Brussels.
