President Biden, states, loudly, that if China invades Taiwan, The United States of America (and its territories), Will not hesitate to send American military personnel to physically combat the Chinese military on the soil of Taiwan.
Note that this is at the same time, while stating, American military personnel will not be sent to physically fight the Russian invasion of Ukraine, on Ukraine soil! Now, one asks, looking at American military behaviour in Korea, Vietnam, etc. In conjunction with President Biden’s statement on American actions in the event of any Chinese invasion of Taiwan. What exactly makes the defending of “Asian Democracy” so much more important than the defending of “European Democracy” so much so, as to involve the loss of American lives in Asia, yet again?
Tara Smith, you might live or work in North Dublin Area, and use the M50 frequently. One is just letting you know Your Vehicle’s address registration is totally incorrect.
Your communications from the eFlow, M50 Toll accounts, notifying you of your toll charges and late payment fines, are being sent to another address. And are being returned unopened and marked “No such person exists at this address!”.
The purpose of this friendly advisory is to make you aware, Tara, that at some point in time, if you do not resolve this matter at your earliest convenience; you are likely to find yourself, with one massive bill from the eFlow Toll company. In both toll charges and late payment fees. Which one is sure, you would wish to avoid.
So, any ladies named, Tara Smith, if you have been using the M50 toll, perhaps you should check your car Logbook, and see if the address there, is your correct address. And rectify these matters.
Apologies to all ladies named Mary Smith, for the typo in the 1st posting!
As any historian will tell you, the Plantagenet Monarchs, were a very interesting bunch of people, much given to creating death. havoc and misery to suit their own ends, in many different countries.
But would you also believe the first Plantagenet, Count Geoffery of Anjou, was an early member of the Green Party? Indeed, Geoffery got the name, Plantagenet, from his habit of wearing a spring of broom (the plant genista) in his bonnet, with which to plant brooms so as to improve his hunting cover.
So, you bought into the arguments of the Greens and the Car Showroom Salesperson; You bought a fully electric and installed a domestic plug-in charger.
Now, you are at mercy of the energy companies as they increase their charges. Your next-door neighbour, still using a petrol fuel car. Can at every top-up go to the cheapest service station currently available. Feeling Stung?
In respect of Minister Stephen Donnelly’s failure to register his property interests and his seeking of a tax exemption for accidental landlords; Of which he declares himself to be such! Has the Minister declared the income from his non-registered properties to the Revenue?
CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN, WHY ON EARTH, THE ST VINCENT’S CAMPUS IS AN APPRORIATE LOCATION FOR THE NMH?
THE POOR RAIL CONNECTIONS, POOR BUS SERVICES, CONGESTED TRAFFIC ROUTES. LEAVING ASIDE, THE COMPLEXITIES AROUND OWNERSHIP, FINANCE, MORAL DISPUTES AND COMPLIANCE WITH LEGAL MEDICAL PROCEDURES ASIDE, HOW DOES THIS LOCATION SUIT IT’S FUTURE PATIENTS EASE OF ACCESS NEEDS?
How about instead of imposing, what might well be laudable policies, in of themselves; But, that without out proper preparation are a disaster for many of the general population.
Proper planning? How about instead of grants to the select few, who can afford or qualify for expensive loans, for PEV cars, retro fitting of homes, etc. Solar panels and so on. Why not instead give to every licenced driver, to every household, of whatever status; A set of specific, interest-free loans, spread over a ten-year period; To make it possible for all citizens to be able to make the right kind of changes to their lifestyles and homes that would achieve the desired outcomes?
This would of itself, speed up the reductions so lovingly sought by the Greens and their allies. And reduce social friction, as more of the population will be directly involved. As the horse will be walking in front of the cart (for a change!) Let’s face’ it, money is really a minor issue in this race for the planet.
