Irish Citizens Use Unique IMF Protest

By Wyatt Earp | November 24, 2010

The Irish have come up with a clever way to protest their financial collapse and the impending bailout by the EU/IMF. Of course, .

Boxer shorts and g-strings sporting the slogan: “I’d rather be screwed by the IMF” might be the top stocking filler this Christmas in Ireland as anger over a financial bailout and frustration with the government mounts. Ireland’s politicians conceded on Sunday that they would need an EU/IMF bailout after weeks of public denial, prompting a small local company to launch a new clothing and underwear range.

“It’s a bit of a dig at our leaders that have led us into this mess,” said Tim Kelly, co-founder of the Cork-based website, whose products include other logos such as “The IMF took me coat” and “What the IMF.”

Seriously, what happened to Ireland? It’s truly become the world’s outhouse.

    Seriously, what happened to Ireland?

    I believe it’s called Euro-socialism.

    It’s not the IMF that screwed Ireland, its Ireland that screwed itself by guaranteeing that the Irish banks would not lose any money (can you say ‘bailout’?). in this country, we just print more money. In Ireland, as a state of the European Union, they can’t print their way out of a financial collapse of their own making. They had to make good on the guarantee, hence when the banks lost money, they made their entitled claims to the government, which the government HAD to honor.

    John D – And it’s coming here.

    Dr. Evil – It’s a damned shame. Terty eight!

    Mike47 – So they boned themselves. And we make jokes about Polish people being stupid.

    John D – That’s a joke, right?

    John D – You are correct, the insanity in taking nail clippers from someone carrying an M-4 shocked me into disbelief :) But then again, at the same time I wasn’t shocked … when it redawned on me whom we are dealing with. The same type of people who will be in charge of our healthcare in a few months:) LOLOL

    Ireland tried capitalism and lowered tax rates and had a really booming economy, but the one thing they didn’t get about capitalism is that sometimes people lose their shirts. And by bailing out the losers like we have done in this country all you do is set yourself up for more failure. Because without risk why would you not try another fool hardy get rich quick scheme.

    And the chickens will come home to roost here when all that money printing Obama is doing turns us into Mexico in the early 1990′s. It will cost $10 for a loaf of bread.

    Yep they take nail clippers but I see people getting on planes with all sorts of things that could be used as a weapon such as a skateboard or a bag of tennis rackets. If you have ever been hit in the head with one of either you know they can do some serious damage.

    Rick – And to you and yours, sir.

    Jon – And there it is. Why would anyone trust the government to do anything the private sector could do better?

    Ingineer66 – On a related note, Russia and China are considering dropping the dollar.
