Interesting. Are we looking for a bit of outside help and expertise as we try to evolve some more away from the blanket approach?

They’ve officially lost the plot. Not a lot of hope for mankind...........er...I mean humankind

WTF Whitey
The Daily Caller is a conservative American news and opinion website based in Washington, D.C. It was founded by political pundit Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel in 2010.
Of course it’s objective

The clip is from Bill Maher, an out and out liberal coastal Democrat. Did the Daily caller put words in his mouth or misrepresent what he said? He's been speaking out against political correctness for years.

He was a victim of it himself after 9/11, questioning the narrative that the hijackers were cowards and then losing his show in the Fox-led "outrage" (ironically, the show was called "Politically Incorrect").

In other news,

Elizabeth Warren thinks Donald trump lost a bet with her because her DNA test shows she may be 1/1024 native American.

https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/411633-media-embrace-of-warrens-1-1024th-heritage-an-epic-failure

I don't much about Warren's claims, beyond the media sensationalism.

What exactly did she claim regarding her supposed Native American ancestry way back when? That she was a tribe member? That she had some Indian blood?

She's an idiot for getting down in the gutter with Trump on this matter. If no one seems to give a shit about his personal extremely checkered past, then she should just brazen it out herself and move the f**k on, just like he does shamelessly does after every scandal that would have precipitate resignation in any other person. None of the half-wits who parrot the Pocahontas shite are ever going to vote for her anyway.

The GOP think climate change is a Chinese hoax

https://www.theguardian.com/world/ng-interactive/2018/oct/10/climate-change-what-will-happen-hellfire-california-forest-fires

I wonder what the lads in the Gaaboard 4 Chan think.

Fear mongering at it's very best, lets legally spray the skies, block off the dreaded sun and introduce a worldwide carbon tax along with greater control of the people.

The real cause of the Californian fires:

What about the floods in Florida? Another Soros conspiracy ?

It's a small wonder that Soros has not won a Nobel Peace Prize already along with warmongers Kissinger and Obama and hoaxer Al Gore.
They would make ideal members of "The Party".

You need to get off those conspiracy sites and go for a long walk. . You could concentrate on something real like voter suppression.

Fake news-they can cast provisional ballots (in Georgia)

The GOP candidate for governor personally oversees the purging of 50K+ voters off the rolls, most of them minorities, about 2% of the electorate, and its "fakes news" to report on it.

Nothing to see here, let's move on, just the dirty lamestream media victimizing the poor conservatives once again. Because everyone is going to go through all the fighting and hassle to make sure their provisional ballot is counted. ::)

Great game there between the Pats and the Chiefs. I almost think they let the Chiefs score that last touchdown so that Brady could have the ball last. First 43-40 in NFL history.

Think it was the 2012 Super Bowl win when the Giants unintentionally scored a touchdown late on when they were trying to down it at the one yard line. They wanted to use up the clock and kick a field goal for a one point lead so that Brady would have very little time to get down the field. The Patriots, on the other hand, opened up and allow the Giants through. The Giants player tried to stop at the one yard line, but fell over into the end zone to get the touchdown. Fortunately for them, the Giants defense was good enough to hold out for the last minute against Brady and Welker (Gronkowski was injures).

Attaboy whitey .... love the Daily Caller

The clip is the clip.....it’s available on numerous sites. find one more to your liking if you don’t like the Daily Caller

And for what it’s worth, the Daily Caller is about as credible as CNN, The NY Times or NBC

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/nbc-news-trump-robert-e-lee_us_5bc3813de4b0bd9ed55b2eda

I actually think Maher is right. . . political correctness is a load of bullshit and has gone too far and people who see others cave into twitter muppets and halfwits think the Dems are too soft.

So the astronaut quoted Churchill and Churchill was a ****. . . big deal why does there need to be an escapade for keyboard warriors to get him to take it down. The Cambridge thing of not honouring Rememberance Sunday because it glorifies war is also ridiculous as well.

Clearly political correctness can be taken too far (like anything can).

That doesn’t mean it’s ok to go back to the days when white men could abuse anyone and everyone else in any demeaning and offensive way they chose , as many of those who whine about this would like.

Kelly should simply have explained that while Churchill may have had offensive views on some things, as many of the time did, that does not erase the positive impacts his actions and words and leadership had on the world at one of the darkest points in history.

Rudolf Giuliani was and is a cynical, self-serving, narcissistic sc**bag. He still did a wonderful job, providing superb leadership, in the aftermath of 9/11.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2018/06/01/president-trump-has-made-3251-false-or-misleading-claims-in-497-days/

But that doesn't bother the likes of these boys. Neither does the very real lies and distortion on policies left, right and center, with serious real world implications, from conservatives every day (witness their disgraceful, cynical response to the IPCC report last week, even as an unprecedented storm, once again, literally wiped out communities).

All they care about is that their side can be cast as victims of the dirty, nasty Democrats and their corrupt media allies. A correction here and a correction there are only proof that the real problem with the world is the "lamestream" media who has the temerity to call them out on their bullshit. Trump is cruelly (and with admitted intent) tearing wailing toddlers away from their parents at the border and shipping them across the country... who cares... all that really matters is that the libtard media, always out to get conservatives, were initially confused (before correcting the record) by a related story on losing track of kids placed with relatives.

Quote
A Limerick club has expressed their disappointment after a player that was sent off for hitting one of their players off the ball had his red card rescinded.

Ballysteen GAA club called for an investigation into how the red card was overturned on appeal.

A letter from the club was read out at a county board meeting this week outlining the significant injuries suffered in the incident that occurred during the Limerick SFC quarter-final between Ballysteen and Ballylanders.

The Limerick Leader has published the details of the letter.

The letter signed by Ballysteen chairman Alan Kehoe read: “I am writing to express our disappointment following an incident that took place during the senior football match between Ballysteen and Ballylanders - the match took place on Saturday September 29 when Ballysteen and Ballylanders played the quarter final of the Limerick senior football championship.

“During the game one of our players received an unprovoked blow to the face at one point in the game, in which he did not have possession of the ball. He had to immediately leave the field and could not continue. The Ballylanders player who inflicted the injury received a red card and was sent-off immediately by the referee.

“The extent of the Ballysteen players’ injuries were discovered upon medical examination and included the following; cheekbone fracture, lower eye socket fracture and bone behind the eyebrow fracture. The player was sent to University Hospital later that evening for x-ray and the above facial injuries were discovered. Due to severe bruising and swelling, an operation was deferred until October 4.

“In addition to the facial reconstruction, a plate was inserted which will remain for life, and he has suffered a numbness in the side of his face and jaw and surgeons have advised that this may not recover due to nerve damage sustained in the blow.


“The player who inflicted this injury received a straight red card and automatically a one match ban must be served, however in this instance the red card was overturned on appeal.

The letter went on to allege that: “The player moved 20-30 yards and inflicted a single blow to the face, captured on match video and I am asking the County Board to investigate how such an appeal was successful.”

The letter stressed: “The Ballysteen club wants to make it clear we harbour no animosity or ill towards Ballylanders GAA club or its players and wish them the best of luck for the remainder of the championship.

What a f**king joke.

Hope the injured lad gets that video and a good solicitor and shoved them up the arses of that coward and his club.

Are the GAA going to cover his medical bills? Damages for any long term effects?

Its all about the slogan.
If I had a cake shop and someone asked me to bake a cake with "Bring back hanging" on it I'd tell them where to go.

What was the slogan they were looking to have inscribed?

(I live in the US and I'm not up to date with the details of this case).




Seriously??

Don't find it creepy at all, rather touching
It's downright weird.

"You know what would be a great idea and your dress wouldn't be wasted. That's right wear it to the graveside for a photo shoot and afterwards we'll Photoshop in the ghostly apparition of your dead fiance." Normal!

Losing one's fiance to a sudden, tragic death a few months before the wedding date is not "normal".

Who are we to say what was the appropriate way for her to mark what would have been one of the highlights of her life?

I know they’ve had a run of tough games, but Liverpool are looking a wee bit toothless in attack. Need to change it for a bit and give Salah and Mane a game off here and there.

On the performance, that was a good point. Both teams canceled each other out, but City looked the more threatening after Jesus and Sane came on.

Depressing.

Righteous causes such as gay rights have advanced, while environmental protections have just about held on, but will they continue to buck the odds with this new court (god help us if anything happens to Ginsburg or Breyer). GOP is already doing all they can to discourage black voting and empower the rights of business over consumers, workers and the environment/public health. As for the abortion issue... Where will it end?

Maybe I’m too pessimistic. Perhaps the likes of whitey and Gmac could explain to us how a hardline conservative Supreme Court will make our lives better?
