Direct Democracy Ireland

The following is an exchange of views on the Direct Democracy Ireland website. I almost joined this lot thinking that they were realists and that they might have a place in Irish politics.

The following DDI positions are pure quackery and pseudo science. ALL scientific, medical and dental bodies in the world support Water Fluoridation. Fracking will supply cheap gas that will mean less CO2 liberated into the atmosphere. There is NO scientific evidence that GMOs are the slightest bit dangerous to human health. No GMOs No Fracking […]

Very few countries around the world mandate fluoride. Most are of the old British empire. All of Europe has banned it for health concerns
Fracking is destroying large swathes of land and has been proven to cause earth tremors and has poisoned multiple ground water tables
GMOs have been proven to cause multiple health problems in humans and animals including sterility in herds, poor nutrition and damgae to body function and die off in species caused by the effect of the organisms producing their own chemicals to protect from pests, fungus and other naturally occurring enemies.
Please look into it further and stretch your research beyond what we are told by the sponsored media.

Many countries DO Fluoridate, the US about half, Brazil, Australia, NZ etc.. Many countries don’t because they don’t drink the tap water. Countries like France drink 10 times as much bottled water as we do. I was in Spain recently and the salt we bought was Fluoridated because of this. I repeat, NO, NONE, NOT ONE, medical, dental or scientific organisation opposes Water Fluoridation. Therefore anti-Fluoridation is Scientific Quackery. It’s that simple.

Fracking doesn’t destroy anything any more than any factory. That exaggerated statement of yours is nonsense. It has NOT “poisoned” ground water.That;’s a ridiculous exaggeration. Earth Tremors? Laughable. The few tremors caused are no greater than a truck passing by. Damming water for Hydro has similar effects as does even drilling for water.

As far as I know NO scientific body believes GMOs have EVER been proven to harm humans. EVER.

I’m basing my position on Science and not not the media. You’re basing you position on QUACKERY. These issues do not need to be part of your policies. By having them you will never gain widespread approval by anyone but the lunatic fringe.

No GMOs
No Fracking
No Flouride

PS Only one country in Europe ever banned Fluoride, Sweden, and that was on the back of a very philosophical argument. So when you say, “All of Europe has banned it for health concerns” you lie. Lying is not a good idea for a new party. You should NEVER lie.

William, I sadly do not have the time to do all the research for you. You will have to do this yourself. I cannot make you read beyond the media sponsored by the state that promulgates these things upon us, but I would hope you would like to educate yourself as to the full picture. Your post is just a tirade of unsubstantiated opinion and I suggest you do some deeper research before you come on in such an abusive tone.

Fracking does not destroy large swathes of land , the drill comes on the back of a truck and the pump house which serves several wells is the size of a 3 bedroom house. The EPA [USA] has not found one example of wells or groundwater being contaminated by fracking. On the reality side of things Methane has been present in wells and near surface water for thousands of years as it seeps naturally towards the surface,the Oracle at Delphi is an example, look it up.
Where is the evidence for the ‘die off in species’ ? I am with Mr. Grogan on this, if you wish to be taken seriously as a political party then you must not use gossip and hearsay when discussing such matters.

I would not use the US EPA as a source. This is the same EPA that allows GMO to go unlablled and the uncontrolled use of pestticides and fungicides that has wiped out the bee population. Bodies like the EPA and the FDA in the US are dominated by political appointees of the corporate lobbyists that profit from the industries that produce these products

Standard conspiracy theory nonsense. Any entity or organisation, no matter how prestigious or expert, that shows you are wrong is dismissed as infiltrated or in the pocket of someone you don’t like.

Sorry William but you just invalidated any argument you may have had by using the media catch all catch phrase ‘conspiracy theory’. It is a meaningless phrase designed for media in the 1960′s by the FBI to try to sideline or ridiculeanyone who voice the opinion of the vast majority of the American people who did not believe the FBI version of events at the shooting of Kennedy in 1963. Seems it worked for many.

So there you have it, we have been brainwashed by the FBI. This would be hilarious but for the fact that this DDI wants to run the country.

Nuclear Power for Ireland ?

http://www.thejournal.ie/do-you-think-the-ban-on-nuclear-power-should-be-lifted-1462248-May2014/

Lots of ecoloon comments from the unwashed and uniformed and just towards the end a lady brings up the subject of using waste for fuel which is hardly ever done in Ireland due to greenie interference. 60% of the journal readers are in favour of nuclear power and it would be interesting to see a wider survey done.

Josephine Griffin posed the question”We cannot even get rid of our ordinary everyday rubbish. You scientific types might be able to come up with a plan for that, rather than listening to some spiel out of vested interests funded by the capitalists.”

“Waste can be turned into fuels and chemicals using pyrolysis or just burnt off by incineration with heat recovery. Chemistry is a really useful science unlike the climate change farce.”

“Here is an example of what I mean. It’s an Irish man using a DIY method to make kerosene from plastic. I supervised the running of a much larger plant using all types of wastes to generate heat and the possibilities are there to be seen. Its just a 3 minute video and worth watching http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqGW4_m_zWM

More on the windpower scam in Ireland

Reading the comments on this item one can see that there has been a lot of brain-washing done on behalf of the profiteers involved in this fraud. Moat of the comments are from city and town dwellers who will not be affected by the building of these towers. The people of Dublin will be familiar with the office block known as Liberty Hall which at 59.4 m (195 feet) high will be dwarfed by the current generation of wind towers which are 300 to 325 feet (100 meters) plus blade. These will be superseded by towers of 200m in the near future. And all for no benefit to anyone other than the investors.

Wind power scam in Ireland

Posted in the public interest from a comment in thejournal.ie

Brendan Halligan is the chairman of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland. As chairman of the SEIA, he plays a pivotal role in shaping Government policy and incentivising renewable energy, and is privy to sensitive information.

In 2007 Mr Halligan was appointed as a director of Mainstream Renewable Energy Ltd, a wind energy company founded by his friend and business associate Eddie O’Connor a position he still holds while simultaneously acting as chairman of SEAI. He then invested just over €500,000 in buying shares in the company in August 2008.

Mainstream has now signed up hundreds of farmers across the Irish Midlands as part of it’s plan to export wind energy to Britain.and has been busy lobbying Mr Rabbitte, who is also Mr Halligan’s former colleague.

Brendan Halligan is also the Chairman and founder of the Institute of International and European Affairs (IIEA). The following is taken from the IIEA website, “The IIEA provides a unique forum in Ireland for corporate networking.

Another ‘Dissident Republican’ bumped off in Ireland

Hard to decide which looks the most ridiculous right now, the Orange lot in their best rig or these ‘Dissident Republicans’ [ or should that be Disneyland ] looking like a team of synchronised waiters in their white shirts and Penny’s black trousers.
