Fight for your family as the taxman cometh

Putting pen to paper frustrates me at times, especially when I read comments from Eamon Gilmore and Enda Kenny talking of slow progress.

I can assure them that I have seen more progress in my garden. I refer to the movement of snails, but then again to compare garden snails to this Government would be an insult to the snails.

As for Michéal Martin who was part of the last regime — he should hang his head in shame. Fianna Fáil destroyed this wonderful country and Kenny and his mob intend to keep the Irish people in bondage for the next 60 years. If Kenny is successful in closing the loophole in the mortgage crisis, then we will be right back in the 1800s, only this time it won’t be an enemy from across the sea, it will be the enemy within.

And now the taxman cometh, with threats of robbing our wages, pensions, social welfare and mobility disability. To the Irish people I say this is the last straw: either you have the will to fight for your family, or you have become cowards.
