The GOP will probably now try to blame the Democrats for the shutdown. Even though it's a Republican House, Republican Senate and a Republican White House. This is a Republican shutdown.

"Right now, in a number of states, the laws allow a baby to be born from his or her mother’s womb in the ninth month. It is wrong. It has to change."

Kerry - The current Kerry GAA crest ìs new since 2012, and is a set of items supposed to reference elements of the county.

County name – A bold decorative Celtic-style Ciarraí brand featuring a crowned C which pays homage to the county’s moniker, 'The Kingdom'

Kerry’s people – St Brendan and his epic voyage: an inspiring tale of bravery, skill and innovation. The naomhóg (a craft associated with the coastal communities around Kerry) is propelled by a sail featuring a Celtic cross – the symbol of the GAA

Kerry’s fauna – Red Deer (Fia Rua): Ireland’s largest wild animal whose only remaining native herd is found on the slopes of Torc and Mangerton. These animals are believed to have had a continuous presence in Ireland since the end of the last Ice Age (c. 10,000 BC) and are steeped in folklore. It is said that ‘Tuan’, the King of the Deer, was given rights of free passage by Fionn McCool to the mountains of Kerry and that his blood line lives on in the present herd

Kerry’s landscape – Skellig Michael’s iconic silhouette rising out of the Atlantic Ocean. A designated UNESCO World Heritage site and famous around the globe

Kerry’s flora – KIllarney woodland fern that thrives in wild exotic places; an evocation of majestic mountains, valleys and hills

Kerry’s artistry – A background pattern of concentric circles inspired by the gilding on the Ballinclemisig ‘gold box’ (part of the ‘Kerry gold hoard’ in the National Museum) and by Bronze Age stone carvings found all over Kerry

Kerry’s birdlife – Storm Petrel (An Guairdeall): Kerry plays host to the largest numbers of this species anywhere in the world and is the world headquarters for breeding pairs

A huge improvement on its predecessor which was far too cluttered IMHO:

I take the diagonal buttresses to represent Navan Fort, although I'm not sure what the red stripe up the middle of it is about.
The tree is appropriate for the Orchard County.
The three-bar cross is, I think, the Papal cross, signifying the city of Armagh's status as the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland.

Personally I always preferred the simpler county coat of arms:

I wonder if we could set up some sort of "swear jar" type of thing where Whitey has to deposit a dollar every time he changes the subject to Hillary Clinton. We'd all be quite rich.

Arguing with Trumpkins who can't even bring themselves to admit that they're defending Trump is just getting tedious at this point.

Can we point this thread in a more interesting direction?

How about the Mueller investigation? My take on it is that Democrats are in danger of overplaying their hand with Russiagate in the same way Republicans did with Benghazigate. Countless investigations into Clinton and nothing was there, but they kept on banging on about it because they wanted something to be there. They wanted to keep re-investigating in the hope that a conspiracy would emerge.

Are Democrats getting their hopes up too much with the Mueller probe? Setting themselves up for disappointment because impeachment is so unlikely? My hope is that the investigation drags out beyond the next mid-terms and helps to depress GOP support and let us take back the house and senate, stopping Trump in his tracks for the rest of his one and only term. As soon as the investigation concludes, we've got nothing but the Twitter controversy of the day, so it's in our interest for it to drag out as long as possible.

As bad as Trump is he still beat the pants (suit) off Hillary....

Think about it for a moment....all the money she raised and spent, the lame stream media firmly in her corner, the Electoral College system absolutely benefiting Democrats....and she still couldn't beat him

Look, everyone! There goes Whitey "not defending Trump" again.

Apple investing 350 billion in us economy in next 5 years .

Really? Where'd you get that figure from?

This article says "Apple said it expected to invest over $30 billion in the United States over the next 5 years, and would create 20,000 jobs through hiring at existing campuses and through opening a new campus."

https://www.rte.ie/news/business/2018/0117/934076-apple-to-bring-home-some-of-cash-pile-under-new-tax-law/

Obama was still President when that campus began construction. I pass by it all the time. Don't tell me Trump is trying to take credit for it. What's it going to be next? Claiming that he got Bin Laden?

Let's hear the Trumpkins' latest defense of this one. Take it away, Whitey. Don't tell me, it's "fake news?"

Im sure there was some fudging of the numbers, but you should use different photos if you want to prove your point.  First photo, trump is leaning sideways so thats no good......second one Trumps shoulder is noticeably higher than Trudeaus, so he actually does look taller.  Hard to tell with the mop of hair

Keep fighting the good fight whitey

Haha....I agreed with you that he fudged the numbers, but those photos you posted prove nothing.....they actually undermine your argument

Jesus wept. How embarrassing.

If you lived in a deep blue state thats been run into the ground the Democrats and youll soon understand why "ordinary Joes" vote Republican.   


The blue states are subsidizing the red states, Whitey. It's been that way for quite some time. Why do you people keep repeating the same lies over and over again?
