Michael D has always relied on the state to fund his lifestyle ... and his poetry is abominably bad

He is a rent a quote professional parasite
President calls for new global economic model
President Michael D Higgins has called for a radical rethink of the global economic model and criticised the impact of "unregulated financial markets" and the "unproductive use of capital".
President | Media Library | Speeches
You are invited to contribute to imagining and shaping a new form of globalisation appropriate for your generation and its future – one that can foster cohesion...Both of our nations have suffered, in cultural terms, from imperialist theories of culture which sought to justify the racial superiority of the coloniser over the colonised, and to rationalise the ruling of the world by a handful of imperial powers.
...The order we must pursue must be an open, inclusive, and democratic one that serves the needs of a global community rather than any empire or contending order of elite powers....In China, Brazil and Vietnam, countries which all had state-led anti-poverty strategies, the achievement is very impressive.
..However great the challenges of global economies, international trade, unaccountable speculative flows

cohesion=authoritarian
imperialist theories=Marxist talking point
order of elite powers=Conspiracy theory 101
unaccountable speculative flows=far left talking point


This coming from a man, who seemingly relies on the advice of his live in (assistant) greenkeeper ?

When is everyone going to finally realise that he is a parasite /professional protestor ? Also ...the office of President is not expected to be so overtly political ...and I watched him, on the campaign trail, promising to respect the boundaries ...

Our Beloved Leader is a sociology lecturer. That is obvious even from your post. We have all died. We are in hell. Where Our Beloved Leader gives us Sociology 101 lectures forever. Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate.

I know nothing about his poetry, but if he thinks that "unregulated" indeed rampant financial market forces are having a negative impact in the world, then he's right in that one. The more voices that say it the better.

This left winger was inserted on the Irish people by an election rigged by the left wing state owned RTE.

All these people, including many public sector workers, believe they are entitled to be minded in considerable comfort from the cradle to the grave by the taxes collected primarily from the private sector.

This is why you hear the never ending screams for increased govt taxation of all private sector activity.

The mercs and perks, golden pensions that this Irish mandarin class, of which Micheal D Higgins sits at the top, costs a fortune.

The mandarin class will not work for what they get preferring instead to continually rip off the private sector worker.

Oh well, at least we know that it is now safe to say these things. The wingnuts would have had you marked down as a gaggle brained lefty fit only for the ducking stool if you'd dare breath such thoughts just a year or so ago!

Higgins knows nothing about economics even if he thought the subject for many years. He lives in a 1960's Socialist utopia who believes tax and spend socialism is the way forward.

Oh where do I start and why cant someone give me a job, talking nonsense like this?

There is no such thing as "the global community". Simply calling something a community because it sounds nice doesnt mean it exists. We dont talk about the wife-beating community, do we?

There are only individual states and the relations between them.

He talks in one breath about the nefarious influence of elite powers, and by the hokies, he got that right, but then goes on to say they succeeded in driving social advances in China etc. Well, leaving a side the fact that all China did was to act as a global marketeer, he seems to be confused about the role of the elites here. They did it. Not the Chinese.

cYp seems to think this is leftwing talk. Marx would have laughed at this farrago.

You are entitled to disagree with President Higgins however I don't see the need for the term "parasite" in the OP

Maybe he has a point when in calling for a radical rethink of the global economic model

"Saying" is easier than doing anything about it. He was in government and opposition long enough and did nothing significant to change the way we do business.

MDH lives off the capitalist state - and lives very, very well, but espouses a socialist model.

I'd take issue with the term midget, for one thing, apparently it isn't PC, you have to use the word dwarf, not that he is one but you get my meaning.

I don't however, have an issue with the term 'parasite', it could be argued that all politicians are parastical. It could also be argued to the opposite of course, but as nasty as the term is, I don't see a problem with its use.

His poetry is appalling though.

Do you really believe that?

Do you even believe that the majority are parasitical?

as he waits to pocket seven differen pensions, he gives us a great insite into what used to be the labour party, this once great party became a home for the stickies, they were forward looking, very forward looking, they have given aspiring politicians the idea that politicians should have many pensions, their pension pots should cost the taxpayer i estimate 2m, the fat phat bunny how much has he weekly, pensions, a lump sum, even a donation to ease him into retirement, the gimmiemore, pensions galore a kicknack from the eu thanking him for work done in assisting the trousering party to rape and pillage the folks he was to repesent and protect, the amadhan, pension perhaps, a few bob because he did not get re elected, the guy who said power is everything or words to that effect, pinnochio gave him a seanead seat in thanks for being anwthing but a genuine labour juniour minister, comical kelly, the guy who used foul language to reply to a folloew td in the dail when he was caught out, he claimed power was everything, he was pictured roaring with a tomato coloured face when he scraped into the dail, the done whatever he could to get iw over the line, well seen as his brother is in the water buisness world wide that could be understandable, the same brother who rubs shoulders with the clintons and redacted, excuse i have to kneel before the toilet bowl

I didn't say I did, but when you look at the careers of some, it would not be wrong to think they are in it purely for self enrichment.

Of course you could also argue the opposite. We are getting in the realm of motivations and its nearly impossible for anyone to truly know what motivates people to try for political office. However, some appear to be motivated purely by selfish reasons.

Or the short version - I don't know.

Clusterfck of a thread. Begrudgers and crazed wingnuts bitching about everything and anything bar what Higgins might have actually said there.

I disagree totally. I would have no time for SF, i rarely agreed with policies of Lucinda Creighton, Enda's broken promise re Moriarty Report maddens me, Pat Rabbitte's broken commitment to tackle D'OB control of Irish media sickens me however I would still maintain and believe that the vast majority of politicians are not in it for self enrichment. I believe that most are honest and trying their best, including those mentioned above. I may not always like what they do, I may not always like what they say however I respect them and I believe that they do a thankless job, but a job that someone has to do.
And please don't reply along the line about they well paid to do a thankless job
