Vindication for A Few Good Men (& Women) following #dail #Shattergate #Callinan

What’s the point of a cardiac surgeon who knows there’s a block affecting the function of the heart but they clip your toe nails?

What’s the point of fooling ourselves we have a functioning democracy when the media aren’t even investigating the rot at the top?
