Dublin, Ireland, United Kingdom (AHN) - Ireland is reportedly battling international efforts, led by the European Union, to bail out the country to the tune of $115.5 billion (77 billion pounds).
$115 billion? Really?
There are, according to the World Bank, about 4.4 million people in Ireland.
$26,000 per person the international banksters want you to be responsible for?
Are the Irish going to sit for this?
I'd tell them to stuff it. That's $26,000 that you didn't contract for. Oh sure, the banksters sure did, and your government might have, but I'd argue you didn't consent.
There is pressure on the EU to bail out Ireland or else risk a run on other Union members such as Spain and Portugal.
Oh, the old "tanks in the streets" threat eh?
To the Irish: This should be your reply
