captivated, held spellbound
lost in the game at hand
following every move snatched
out of my box of tricks.

yes, welcome to my show
come and be mesmerized
forget about your worries
a lot more drama awaits you.

step into my world, into my clutches
what previously was wrought
what will be unleashed
from dark, twisted mind.

hearts beating, mouths wide open
lost in illusions that have been created
here, take my hand, come with me to the edge
still lost in twists and turns, one way to go.

All Immigrants in Ireland must go back home

0007

The heading says it all. At the moment in Ireland this is what pertains. Immigrants must go back home. Ordinarily, a silly suggestion such as this would not elicit much response from me, but what the heck!

Here is a letter which was written to the Independent newspapers by a member of the public:

It is titled 'Immigrants must go home'

Sunday March 01 2009

"Sir -- Some years ago in the United Kingdom a well known parliamentarian called Enoch Powell proposed a scheme for dealing with excessive immigration into the country. He would pay each immigrant £2,000 if he or she agreed to return home. At the time that was a lot of money.

I understand that some immigrants are collecting social welfare payments in this country. In addition some immigrants are collecting children's allowance here and at the same time in their own country. If immigrants agreed to return home, they should be paid four weeks' unemployment money to help them on their way. At present unemployed immigrants have little hope of re-employment here. During the boom such people enjoyed gainful employment. They should now reciprocate our kindness by returning home, thus alleviating our economic difficulties.

Bernard Kileen,

Ennis, Co Clare"

It is easy, when things are difficult,to blame immigrants for all sorts of issues, but to blame immigrants for Irish recession is taking things beyond the bounds of stupidity. It is not such a new idea anyway, I mean, Hitler used the same excuse to try to purge Germany of Jews and other immigrants, so if the Irish public and some politicians have decided to use 'immigrants' as scape goats for  bad decisions that have been made in the past, then i wouldn't be surprised.

I wonder what would happen if the USA, Australia, New Zealand and other countries where there large concentrations of Irish migrants, all got up tomorrow and said 'all Irish people have to go back home, things are so difficult here now and we can't stand you no more!'

An argument most often postulated by those who want migrants to go back home is the one of the dole. They believe that migrants have no right to be on the dole. I just feel that this is somewhat silly. A lot of the migrants receiving unemployment benefits today are people who have being working in this country for a long while, some for maybe, upwards of 5 years. They also contributed in their way to the Celtic Tiger. They paid taxes which were used to keep a lot of Irish people on the dole. So now things are bad and they have lost their jobs, they are not entitled to a little bit of money from the State?

To be honest, these are not the times to start throwing blames at immigrants or at a particular group of people. This is a time when we should all collectively rise up and work towards making the Celtic Tiger roar again. We should not let silly, inane and stupid arguments or thoughts derail us from this singular objective. Yes, the times are hard but let us not start behaving like the uncivilized.

enforced torpor

the years continue to roll by
still sitting, waiting idly
for the so-called saviour
the one who will dispel the torpor.

everyday waking up to one more struggle
one or more of your rights stripped away
forced to live like animals, even less
fed with crumbs from giant cakes.

who to turn to, to hide from the Camarillo?
gullible children that we are, we turn to
charlatans, pastors, religious yet irreligious
bring me your money, God will save us!

fools! look within yourselves for salvation
the saviour you crave lives within
only you can save yourselves from the rot
turn away from lies, face the truth.

the sands of time trickle away
still hearing tales of 'e go better'
'God go do am', 'e don do am for me'
just want to scream, say hush, hush fools!

the hunger, the craving for heaven
nobody ready to die, heaven comes on a platter
suffering, suffering and smiling
looking drug-addled, satisfied in gullibility.

Music Mondays – At Vance (Lost in your Love)

At Vance

 

At Vance Lost in Your Love Lyrics:
the summer breeze in your hair
seems to be so warm and tender
is your love really true
that it can't stand anything
where we gotta go thru
then I'll send my love to you
thru the dark and the night
thru the day and the light
I will hold you forever
anywhere that you go
I would share all my dreams
but it seems that you don't understand
that I am lost in your love
cause you
came like a force from above
so I will open my heart
won't you try
[ Find more Lyrics on www.mp3lyrics.org/qmV ]
try to make a new start
but times may change as they say
but my love for you is far
beyond their range
nobody's with me as I'm on my way
watchin the waves in
the sea searchin for my
destiny
thru the dark and the night
thru the day and the light
I will hold you forever
anywhere that you go
I would share all my dreams
but it seems that you don't understand
that I am lost in your love
cause you
came like a force from above
so I will open my heart
won't you try
try to make a new start
[Solo]

The MoD and the Compensation issue

3187914064-mod-urged-drop-compensation-appeal

I have been following this story since it first broke and I said to myself, these service men should not hold their breaths! Seems there is a silver lining in the horizon now. A Yahoo! news articles had this headline 'Ainsworth urged to drop MoD payouts appeal'

It goes without saying that this was a cringe-worthy story in the first place. These men have given all they have to serve in a war that was not of their doing. Yet, after getting one form of injury or the other, that has deteriorated, the MoD has decided they should not be compensated further. Read this:

'The MoD last week went to the High Court to challenge tribunal rulings which increased the payouts to two soldiers who developed medical complications after treatment for their initial injuries.'

Rubbish! I say, utter rubbish! These men are heroes. These men signed up to the defense forces with proud hearts, joy in the belief they were out for a noble cause. They believed if anything happened to them in the line of duty, the government would take care of them and their families. This same government has now decided that giving them a few pennies more would cause the end of the British Empire (well, so to say, duh!).

This is the same government that did not hesitate to cough up billions to bail out failed banks. This is the same government whose members have been caught up one expense row or the other. This same government now feels it is its duty to fight against service men who have given all they have for Queen and country! Amazing! Well, not amazing per se, more like incompetence at its highest form, or maybe stupidity or both!

This same utter disregard for the common man, this same attitude has been the bane of this government and indeed most governments all over the world. They do not hesitate to pander to the whims and caprices of those who already have so much, yet when the little man tries to stand up, tries to get a foot up the ladder, then they do everything possible to stamp down on them and stop their progress.

These men did not beg to be uprooted from their families to fight in a war for which adequate preparations were not made, a war taking place miles and miles away. Now they have been injured in the line of duty. The government should do what is decent and take steps to adequately compensate these brave men. Then maybe some of the respect that has been lacking in the polls will start creeping in again.
