Pence might be another evil sumbitch but at least he know what he's doing. The current president is a complete loose cannon.

The typical hysterical democrat position that we've come to expect, call someone a racist, fascist, sexist etc if you don't like someones point of view.

The Democratic position is to call someone a racist, fascist, or sexist if they're a racist, fascist, sexist. The conservative response is to cry like a wounded puppy about how the big boys are picking on you.

Still the biggest band in the world.

Bono preaches a little, OK a lot.

But perhaps their campaigns just might have had some impact - Bono was the first person to talk about 3rd World countries needing Justice, not Handouts.  He spearheaded the Millennium Initiaitve to cancel 3rd World Debt. 

Bono's fortune (the vast majority of which he has given away secretly) is not going to solve third world poverty which is his major crusade.  To suggest all world problems could be solved by Bono handing his money over, is ridiculous. 

I also remember the song Walk On at 360 Tour when he got people to walk onto the stage with Aung San Suu Kyi masks.  He used this song to highlight her house arrest.  Shortly after, she was freed.  Up until then no one had a clue who she was.

During the ZooTV tour, he did nightly satellite links with Sarajevo.  After the war, they went and did a broadcast concert there.

He came to Belfast to do a concert to promote the peace process here.

Their music is also excellent and has stood the test of time.

An Irish band, biggest in the world, and making a difference.

...but sure wouldn't it be better if he was like Liam Gallagher; drugged out, can't sing, fighting, foul mouthed, acting the p***k everywhere he goes...

Spot on. We probably won't know the full scale of his charity contributions until after he dies, same as happened with Prince.

Comrade Don spilling highly classified info to the Russians in the Oval Office last week - surely not??????????
Yesterday he denied it. Today he defended it.

You cannot make this stuff up.

I absolutely detest hunters who try to appropriate rural Ireland and try and make out that their niche interests are somehow an intrinsic part of the fabric of rural life that town folk just don't understand.

The fact no one in the hunting community will ever admit to is that they are probably disliked most of all in rural Ireland because the problems and harm they cause isn't philosophical but real, day-to-day issues that people in the countryside have to deal with directly. The amount of farmers I know whose fences have been destroyed on these organised hunts or whose cattle have been shot near because some idiot has seen a fox or a pheasant in the field over is unreal. So few of them have any respect for private land.

Vermin control, would ya ever cop on. That might sound good to the uneducated townies but anyone in the countryside knows you'll get a lot more done with some poison than dressing up like Jack Charlton and wandering around a hedgerow with a 300 euro peashooter.

The actual number of people I know who are hunters is incredibly low too, indeed most people don't even have a gun in their house and would never want one darkening their door in the first place.

I'd sooner go to a protest against hunting than I would one about water charges or any of that shite people waste their time with these days.

Spot on. Remember the RISE campaign? "Rural Ireland Says Enough"? Letting on it was a grass-roots revolt to defend stag hunting but it was nothing but an astroturf campaign with that grumpy cretin An Fear Rua hired as a mouthpiece. The tally-ho crowd tried to pass themselves off as representative of all rural dwellers but I don't think they fooled too many people.

Can we re-name this thread "Begrudgers R US?"

Grew up in the country myself. I don't agree with hunting and I don't think that tradition is justification for anything. "Traditional route down the Garvaghy Rd" springs to mind.

Being against gay marriage is not homophobic.

Yes it is.

Anne Coulter has an opinion contrary to be bleeding hearts of the looney left, why can they not respect freedom of speech, why can they not simply ignore her and why do the f**kers need to throw the rattle out of the pram and act the collective ****?

Anne Coulter chickened out and decided not to go to Berkeley. Scuttling off like the tail-tucked rodent she is.

Normally I wouldn't bother responding to you because your posts are annoying drivel but you've outdone yourself this time with a totally irrelevant rant. I think you should see an arse doctor pronto. It's oozing.

This is what conservative discourse has been reduced to.

Surely in the light of Stephen Fry case, Garda should be prosecuting loads of constant blasphemers on this thread and Board. Over to the Mods.

On a completely unrelated matter, what's the deal with Jesus hanging out with men all the time, washing their feet, telling them he loved them and never getting married? I think Jesus might have been gay. What do you think, Tony? Would it explain his failure to close the deal with Mary Magdalene and hook up with her?

It's not.Given that God is made up of the Holy Trinity he in effect took on the suffering of the crucifixion on himself,out of love for mankind,thus offering salvation to all
He sent himself, to sacrifice himself, to appease himself.

Makes perfect sense.

Trump tells a lie. The "mainstream media" report that he told a lie. Conservatives get bent out of shape about "mainstream media bias." They seem to think that the job of the media is to strike a balance between truth and lies.

Have we lost the ignore feature? I want to put that Foxclown on ignore. I'm done looking at his conservative nonsense.

Seeing as you proudly boast about it you might want to amend your signature slightly to

Avoiding the real world in my headlights of justice

Sure - use the ignore button. Anything rather answer a simple question. Isn't this exactly the reason the US is polarised when you'd rather go this route than tell the truth.

Truth? What would a conservative know about truth? What's the point in trying to reason with people like you, you amusingly stupid mucksavage?

The last time I looked the church continues to expand.
