How come the media aren't reporting the riots in Minneapolis after that policeman shot the unarmed woman?

j70, Eamon and usual liberals - you must be outraged surely.

Where's Black Lives Matter on this one?

Yeah, I am outraged and feel awful for that poor woman, her fiance and her family.

You, on the other hand, see some sort of political advantage apparently, popping your head up above the parapet after weeks of silence to once again stick the boot in on black people.

So Trumpcare has gone down in flames (again!) in the Senate.

Now they want to try a repeal-only option, with a two year delay to come up with a replacement.

Good luck getting that repeal passed, Mitch!

You've only had seven years (and counting) to come up with a replacement so far! No one will be skeptical! The healthcare industry, insurance industry and the public especially.

Stew, how in the name of Jesus could some deranged lowlife marching up to the door of a police truck and, without any warning, shooting that poor woman in the head, ever be deemed her own fault?

You're projecting what you want us to be, not what we are.

As for Trump and collusion, we will see how it ends up. For all the cries of fake news and "nothing to see here!", they're sure a "forgetful" bunch when it comes to meetings with Russians and have now been caught with their trousers down.

I don't know what Clinton or Cheney did that could lead to treason charges. You will have to elaborate.

Well bot were active in wartime which is huge when you consider that Haliburton benefitted greatly when Cheney was in office and he was  main man in the outfit at the time, as for Clinton, well she was deeply involved in pay for play and got four Americans murdered despite being told hundreds of times by her main man in a volatile area that they needed to beef us security, she rigged an election to benefit herself and maaged to lessen the USA at every farts turn, she is an odious turd that needs to be eradicated asap from the American political scene!

So you ARE looking for the Benghazi investigations to keep cloning until one gives you the result you want!!

And how did she rig the election?

I voted in the Dem primary. I don't remember anything untoward. I don't remember Bernie being suppressed or not getting his message out.

And given your distaste for "pay for play", I take it you're against the Citizens United decision and want rid of dark money and SuperPACs and would like to see proper campaign finance reform? You think the NRA and the oil and coal companies own the GOP for free?

I don't see how Cheney could be guilty of treason because his former company cashed in. He didn't sell secrets to the Russians or Al Qaida or take up arms against the US.

Donny jnr was not a politican, there is very little here, far less thanClinton selling 20 percent of the countrys uranium to the Russians ad a magical 145 million dollars showing up for her hubbys foundation.

I see now Bernie has got in on the act, just when you think there is one decent human being out there in office they prove you wrong!

Why don't you detail for us all how Hillary "sold" the uranium to the Russians? Perhaps include a timeline and who was involved and outline how much power she had in this affair.

WTF does Donny Jr not being a politician have to do with anything?

I'll await your piece to educate us on the uranium thing before commenting on whether there is less there in Donny's case.

One thing you can't argue is that he and his pals went into the meeting thinking they were getting dirt direct from the Kremlin.

After all the Tyrone over confidence on here last week I was not too surprised to read some of the very anti Tyrone bias on here yesterday.
As many have already admitted it was disappointing to see Morgan's reaction but I don't know was there much else people could complain about yesterday.

Players like Tiernan McCann and Mattie D are good at making penetrating runs to break through the blanket defence which often results in them drawing the foul. Some would argue that he played for that free but if the defender fell for it or was lazy with his tackle then a free's a free.
As for Sean complaining to the ref or linesman about being fouled etc, what's the alternative, to take the law into his own hands like D.Connolly might do and then get punished even more.
Yes many would love to see Sean get sent off again for reacting to the abuse he gets during a game.

I see the Irish News agreed with my choice of McClure for MOTM. He looked very up for it yesterday and I'll be disappointed if he doesn't start the next day. Anyone else think the marks given in the IN are a bit mean on Tyrone?

I'm sure its already been discussed, but was one of the Down players pinching Cavanagh on the tits yesterday? (Looked like it on tv)

If so, my admiration of Cavanagh has gone up a notch - there's no way in hell most people would have the self-control not to retaliate instantly to that carry-on.

Morgan - not nice to see, but we see it a fair bit in senior football now. Conor McManus did it to the Donegal keeper last year, but in that case I think McGinley had been giving him some kind of lip to try and throw him off before he took the penalty and so it was probably justified.

On over-confidence, youse have every entitlement to it. Streets ahead of the rest in Ulster at the moment.

Donny Trump jnr deserves to be investigated for his so called 'treason' when he met with a Russian govt official prior to his da getting the big job.

Clinton deserves the same treatment for Benghazi, the email scandals, the selling of uranium to the Russians and getting 145 million in pay for play kickbacks, the rigged election that cost Bernie Saunders a fair crack at taking her down and much much more.

How many congressional investigations into Benghazi are enough stew?

Or do you want them to keep going until they get the result you and the insane element of the right wing want? Same with the emails??

Why is an investigation of the "treatment" of Bernie warranted? What laws/regs are in play?

And outside of the paranoid conspiracy theorizing world of the right wing, what is controversial or extraordinary about the other stuff?

You forgot Vince Foster by the way! ;)

I forgot nothing, it would take a year to post every shady deal/decision Clinton was involved in, she is bullet proof.

Yes, the right wing whack jobs are prolific and creative in their conspiracy theorizing, that's for sure!  ;D

And the left wing nuts are screaming about treason ffs, donnie takes a meeting with a russian and suddenly it is an act of treason, the left in America is a mess, is devoid of leadership and morally bankrupt.

Not one word on here about a mother of three being gunned down performing her duty as one of NYC's finest, the Mayor was spot on when he asked were the celebrities are and why they are not protesting this cowardly attack.

"Donnie meets with a Russian..."! Sure is that all that was going on stew! Casual, every day meeting with what he thought was an agent of a hostile foreign government with dirty secrets to sell! ;D

The treason rhetoric may be overblown and (for now) legally inaccurate, but any attempt to equate such hype with the paranoid delusion the gullible right specializes in is just ludicrous and dishonest.

As for that poor NYPD officer, there was nothing stopping yourself posting on it, was there?

I guess no one else really saw it as a political issue.

O Keefe shut down Acorn, made Planned Parenthood change their practices and caused several top level Democratic consultants to get fired....mock him at your peril

Why, he is coming for ME next??   ;D

Just because the GOP eat up all his bullshit for political reasons and the weak kneed Dems didn't know what they were dealing with at the time of Acorn and so meekly acquiesced in the face of the "outrage", doesn't make him legitimate or honest.

Besides, I wasn't mocking O'Keefe, per se, in that comment.

When the Clinton campaigns connection to this set up is revealed remember where you heard it first

It's a Clinton set-up?

Are conservatives EVER responsible for anything?? ;D

And let's say, for the sake of amusement, that it WAS a set-up?

How does that excuse Trump Jr, Manafort's and Kushner's eager rush to meet with what they thought was a Russian government operative with damaging dirt on Clinton?

Oh it won't excuse anything....they, especially Manafort, should have run a mile and reported it immediately to the FBI.

On the other hand, if what I am saying is true.....it's going to look very bad for the Democrats

Out of (morbid) curiosity, what indication do you have that what you say is even remotely possibly true?

There is a possibility (albeit low) that it was a DNC dirty trick.....I subscribe to a
lot of blogs and Facebook feeds and saw it first yesterday. Over the past day it has been repeated
by some more mainstream and reliable commentators which is often a sign that there may be something behind it. 

If I told you a year ago that the DNC was sending rabble rousers to cause trouble at Trump
rallies you would have had a similar level of skepticism....

So baseless speculation on social media that has been picked up by mainstream media people with an agenda then?

As I've said a million times, believe whatever you want, but don't be surprised if there's more to this than meets the eye

Come on, you're just spreading baseless conspiracy theories to deflect!

Maybe it was O'Keefe who "set it up"! Shame that they all took the bait! ;D

GAA Discussion / Re: all ireland football qualifiers 2017.
« on: July 10, 2017, 04:52:48 PM »
Mayo should progress past Cork without much bother in the next round. I think they turned a corner on Saturday and their second half performance was very impressive given they looked in a bit of bother.

They should be hoping for Kerry in the quarters after. Provincial Champions can often be caught cold in this round, Kerry will be 4 weeks or so without a game and Mayo will have that sharpness and momentum built up from coming through the qualifiers. I think Mayo playing Kerry in the quarter finals as opposed the semis gives them a much better chance. They still haven't beaten Dublin under Gavin or Kerry under Fitzmaurice yet in Championship football so it would be an intriguing matchup.

Donegal are stuttering along at the minute, I don't know whether it's devoid of confidence they are and the performances are a result of that or whether they're deep in the middle of transition and that's the level they are at. I guess the game against Galway will tell us more, getting through a tight affair like they did in Meath at the weekend might give them the shot in the arm but so far they have been really unimpressive.

We are stuttering all right, but its going to take a team half filled with new, inexperienced players a while to get used to senior championship football.

Ciaran Thompson was superb in the league, hitting some outrageous score, but the return of McBrearty has probably robbed him of some of the shooting opportunities that he was so impressively taking back then. Result is he doesn't catch the eye quite as much.

McBrearty has been having arguably his most impressive season yet as a Donegal player (still only 23!) and should be heading for an All Star nomination if he keeps it up and we reach the quarters. Only man apart from McGinley that really performed against Tyrone. Perhaps the spring lay-off benefited him.

Ryan McHugh returned to some form against Meath, while Murphy was man of the match again. Eventually, we'll be found out again as a team, but it would be nice if we could beat Galway and make another quarter final to build a bit of confidence for the future.
