Hidden taxes in the Budget.

From January you will still be paying the same PRSI as now but getting less. If you go to the Dentist today a filling will cost about €80 - €30 from PRSI which means you only pay €50. Come the first of January PRSI won't cover anything but it won't be going down. This country is becoming a right kip...

Re: Would you get married in a church?

There are lots of situations I've know where the rational half of the couple gives in to the irrational beliefs of the other person and goes through the ridiculous rigmarole of a CCL ceremony. Mammies, Daddies, Aunts and Uncles are all kept happy. Is it about time that stopped? With anyone I've ever...

Re: The cynical cover up of child rape: CCL damage limitation

Seems 4 of them are not resigning. :evil: I think they're just throwing the dog a bone. It's not as if he was retiring to Mountjoy prison. Twomeys article reads more like a report from a consultant brought in to sort out a badly managed company: 1)slash the number of managers, 2) tighten up the sys...

Before the Dublin report the number of people who had downloaded the forms on countmeout.ie was struggling to pass 1800.......now it's jumped to 4187 ! A simple practical idea put into action quickly and look what happens. Soon enough it will be 4187+1, I hope to be making my defection soon. I've d...

Re: Which Religion Annoys You the Most?

Noel Gorman's grossly insulting assumption (Letters, December 8) that homosexuality and paedophilia are the same thing exposes the ignorance on sexual matters of so many followers of the Catholic Church. The molestation of children has nothing to do with sexuality and all to do with power. In the s...

Re: Which Religion Annoys You the Most?

Candie Malone – you had a letter published - blow your trumpet – well done. http://www.independent.ie/opinion/letters/lay-the-blame-where-it-belongs-1968087.html That’s a pretty ill informed letter to put it mildly. It shows no knowledge at all of the CCL system of indoctrination in its seminaries,...
