A long long time since we've seen passion like that from players and supporters.

Different feeling time!

Theyíve released him for being untruthful about the incident. The chiefs released a statement at the time if I recall, based on media reports and their talks with Hunt.

Stupid boy.

Sphinx was great also. I worked in Benedicts for a few years and we always grabbed something from Spudz after work.

Bishops was ok, Julies Armpit was to be avoided at all costs. The KamWah was mighty. Sign of a good night.

Turns out that kinda dietary carelessness catches up with you and before you know it you're jiggling on the bus on the way home.

Was a damp squib for me. Watched it with a bunch of lads and the only craic were our random
Bets on fairways, KPs, birdied etc.

The announcing was poor, the sound was poor, the PGA tour limited the side bets with their own money, and the finish was shit. Why they didnít Start it earlier is beyond me. Itís not as if we didnít know the lights are going on at 4.30 in Nevada!

Came face to face with the realisation Iíve mice in the shed yesterday when I turned off the sprinklers and winterized the pipes.

They get to enjoy thanksgiving but the traps and poison are going down today. Based on the droppings there could be multiple colonies.

No sign of them in the garage or house thankfully.

Iíll be wearing an N-95 face mask, Hanta virus is a concern over here.

I find the bag interesting, the podcast interesting, and the fact that Iím still subscribing to his patreon - interesting!

The bag: I get it. B list celebrity who doesnít want to be noticed.

Podcast: interesting. Some nonsense, plenty of interesting and well thought out positions.

The Patreon: I think he correlates well with many people, but he is not an expert. There are many fawning on him on Twitter (I challenged him on a topic I thought he was incorrect about), and many think he is God in relation to psychology. I think thatís dangerous.

He is, absolutely. But he's a necessary pantomime villain in the narrative. He's our very own window into the mindset of the average MAGA Hat wearing folks, sitting at home watching fox news wondering if they should buy silver during the commercials, or a new med alert bracelet. While also struggling with the Big Pharma commercials that the same news station keeps running.

No Iím actually stuck at Phoenix airport waiting for a delayed flight bored out of my brains

My point is what your viewpoints represent. Not what you're doing.

Absolutely not


CL stepped in front of a reporter and if you relied on the MSM for your information youíd have thought heíd be up for GBH for that encounter

Again, in the real world there is no equivalence.

Tats where we disagree

In my opinion if a Fox or Breitbart reporter did that in an Obama press conference thereíd be holy blue murder

So, In your opinion the physical coming together of the 2 people in each situation is the same?

Same in intent
Same in situation
Same in the physical contact

Jim Acosta assaulted that intern about as much as Cory Lewandowski assaulted that reporter by stepping in front of her. Letís see if the press hold Jim to the same standard !

These are the fine margin comments upon which wrong is being blurred into right. If you have to use these little extras to extrapolate 2 completely different situations into being the same - you are losing your argument in the real world.

I will concede however that many of our fellow countrymen and women are not living in the real world where the political spectrum is concerned and that's why such nonsense as what you've suggested above will dominate news cycles and "what about" cries for the next week.

See the left are out in force today defending a white male after an altercation with a young female...  ;)

Let's just nip this in the bud. There's no altercation. Call It what it is. He hasn't approached her, he hasn't moved from where he's standing. She's tried to take the Mic and he hasn't let her.

Yet again it's a spineless president putting his staff in situations they don't need to be in either physically, professionally, or morally. All while he stands and pontificates hate, division, and nonsense.

So far on my trials I have tried a Yellow tail Red Roo (stinkin), Barefoot Merlot (ok) and a Cotes Du Rhone (best so far and the cheapest). South American next i think.

Neither one of those would be bank breakers?
