Anyone with any decency or respect for humanity would have no respect for Obama,
a man with the blood of thousands on his hands.


Which countries' people are you referring to?

Take your pick from any of the countries that he bombed over 22,000 times last year alone,
or any of the other countries bombed by bombs supplied by him.

Over 20,000 Palestinians killed or injured since the day he was elected and he never said a word, except to defend Israel.

Some man he is...........

I have no interest in defending Obama but on the list of countries on that link would you have him pull the plug on those wars that were started prior to his coming into office?

Which wars were started prior to him becoming President?
Afghanistan and Iraq.

Only 2 yet he started wars in more countries than Bush and Blair..........
Which wars did he start?

I'm sure you can calculate on that one if you have read the article

So if there was emergency services trying to get through the lorry driver just made things worse...
It wasn't his job to police the knobs driving up the hard shoulder.

If the lorry driver hadn't of blocked the cars way back from the scene of the accident how much harder do you think it would have been for the emergency vehicles to get through?

There is no reason for anyone to drive on the hard shoulder unless the police directed them to do so.

I salute the lorry driver for stopping these knobs in their selfish tracks.

Last Friday there was a serious accident on the M1 between Moira and Lurgan, in which an eldery woman was killed.
In what can only be described as selfish mindless behaviour, motorists decided to drive up the hard shoulder in the hope
of skipping the que. Did any of them even stop for a moment and think that that emergency services needed to use the
hard shoulder in order to reach the scene of an accident?
 
Thankfully someone took matters into their own hands and stopped them in their tracks, and some one took a picture and expressed his feelings........

Just sat for 2 hours on the M1 between Sprucefield and Moira. Anybody who knows where I live will vouch that it usually takes 15-20 minutes to get home to my house from Sprucefield. 2 hours for 10 miles.
That's all well and good.
BUT THIS GUY. Well, he's a modern-day super hero.
All of the cars who didn't have the patience decided to try drive up the hard shoulder and skip ALL of the traffic while all other cars, myself included, beeped and screamed. This Lorry driver, took matters upon himself and blocked BOTH lanes (hard shoulder included), stopping the cars in the hard shoulder from getting up the motorway any quicker than the rest of us.
I salute you sir, you made a very miserable 2 hours somewhat tolerable.

Cheers for the advise. Was looking at this one, https://www.gumtree.com/p/lawnmowers-trimmers/greenhill-42-ride-on-lawnmower-lawn-mower/1157771225

But not familiar with Greenhill brand? anyone any experience of them? What should be the main pointers I'm looking for? Hydrostatic, 3 in 1 (How useful is that here? Does it not require it to be really dry to mulch?) etc?

Also any brands to completely avoid? There seems to be a lot of brands out there at the minute.

That's a fine looking mower, and it should last you a long time.

They are also fantastic for collecting leaves in the autumn if you have many tress about !!

1st cut done today. Have a ride on and it makes mowing the lawn enjoyable.
Go for a hydrostatic one as they are the way to go.
Bought a new one 9 years ago and its as good as the day I bought it.
Buy new if you can.

 What make and HP is your ride on?

Couldn't find an image of mine, but it's similar to this.

18 HP and 102" cut, twin blade. Rear discharge and a pull of the handle empties the box.

I dump the grass on a bit of old ground and never have to get off the mower from start to finish.

Another 5 people killed in a mass shooting in Pittsburgh, but hey, lets be angry at
Refugee's, immigrants, unemployed and Muslims.

http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/mar/10/killed-injured-pittsburgh-shooting-allegheny-county

In fairness GHD did you not get mad at the Muslim scum that groped and raped their way in gang style in Germany? I know I did.

In fairness Stew, as bad as it was, it wasn't as bad as the USA  blowing 150 Muslims to pieces in Somalia at the weekend.

The whole Catholic Church is rotten at the top, at the middle and at the bottom. They have continually failed victims, and still do.

Until everyone connected with cover ups and abuse is sacked then there is no hope.

I only go to church on the rare occasion, for a funeral or an anniversary.

A couple of weeks ago I was at an anniversary mass and I left whenever people started the
"through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault" response.
What are people at fault for? And when did this come into the mass?

The people at fault are the bloody church and the perverted b**tards that they allowed to rape and rape
at will wherever they went, and with complete protection from the top.

The new Pope has been full of plenty of talk, but very little action.

There is no hope for the Catholic church as long as they stay in denial about the abuse they carried out on children
all over the world, and the fact that they covered it up and continue to do so.

And anyone who makes excuses for them or blames the children or parents is as guilty as the rapists.

I have a personal experience as a young teenager of an adult taking advantage of me and grooming me.
I had no idea until many years later how wrong it was as back then we never knew the seriousness of sexual abuse
of young boys by adults. I never got to challenge him as he died not long after that.

The only satisfaction or closure I get is that he died a painful death, and every so often I go to his grave and piss on it.

Yet another disgusting episode of child abuse by priests and cover up by the Bishops.

Pennsylvania Diocese Leaders Knew of Sex Abuse for Decades, Grand Jury Says

Over four decades, at least 50 priests and other church employees molested hundreds of children in a small Roman Catholic diocese in central Pennsylvania, and in many cases their superiors knew of the abuses but did not remove the priests or notify law enforcement, according to a grand jury report released on Tuesday.

But none of the findings will result in prosecution, according to State Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane, whose office led the investigation, because the statutes of limitations on all alleged crimes have expired.

The report names a dozen priests who admitted — to church officials, to the grand jury or both — that they had molested children, and other cases where church records made clear that their superiors believed they were guilty. None were taken to law enforcement, and in cases where police or prosecutors learned of allegations, the report says, church officials worked to hush them up.

“They placed their desire to avoid public scandal over the well-being of innocent children,” the report says.

The Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown is only the most recent to be the target of an investigation and a report by a grand jury or attorney general for shielding priests who abused children. But the numbers it cites are striking for a diocese that claims fewer than 100,000 Catholics.

There have been public allegations in the past against some of the priests named in the report, including the Rev. Joseph D. Maurizio Jr., who is to be sentenced on Wednesday in a case that drew international attention. Father Maurizio, who raised money for an orphanage in Honduras, was convicted in federal court in September of sexually abusing boys at the orphanage, money laundering and possessing child pornography.

Bishop Joseph Adamec, former leader of the diocese, learned of allegations against Father Maurizio in 2009, according to the grand jury report and the charity that sponsored the orphanage. But Bishop Adamec and his successor, Bishop Mark L. Bartchak, kept Father Maurizio on as pastor at a church in Central City, Pa., until shortly before his arrest in 2014.

Given that record, Anne Barrett Doyle, co-director of BishopAccountability.org, said she was puzzled that the grand jury report did not hold Bishop Bartchak accountable, as well.

In a statement, the diocese said it had “cooperated fully with authorities throughout the investigation, and will continue to do so.”

The report offers a scathing picture of Bishop James Hogan, who led the diocese from 1966 to 1986, and died in 2005, as a leader who repeatedly persuaded the police and prosecutors to drop criminal cases against priests, failed to discipline people he knew were abusers, and responded to complaints about predatory priests by relocating them to jobs where they could molest again.

It contains serious, but less harsh, criticism of his successor, Bishop Adamec, who retired in 2011 but retains his title. It cites a few priests who were allowed to continue ministry for years after the diocese learned of allegations against them, including three who remain active priests, and notes that the diocese turned none of the priests in to the police or prosecutors.

The records indicate that with over half the priests, the diocese did not learn of alleged abuse until decades had passed, when no legal action was possible.

The bishop’s lawyer, David Berardinelli, released a response describing the grand jury report as one-sided and unfair. It notes that unlike his predecessors, Bishop Adamec frequently suspended accused pedophile priests, often soon after learning of the allegations, and asked the church hierarchy to defrock them. Those he allowed to remain in active ministry have had “no new allegation of abuse of a minor” since then.

Pope Francis called last year for the Vatican to create a tribunal on judging bishops accused of negligence, but the Vatican has yet to do so. Last month, Francis said in a news conference that bishops who kept abusive priests in ministry should resign.

The report names 35 priests, most of them now dead, who have been accused of child molestation, and cites other abusers who are not named. The information is based mostly on documents taken from diocesan offices in 2014 under a search warrant.
