Controversial point of opinion here by some "free thinkers". But if you disagree with it, that's proof of your confirmation bias. If these authors are not immediately platformed by the corrupt MSM, it will just prove how cancel culture has corrupted the media. Where's the balance?!

Defibrillators are a FIB!
By Toby Dai Young, Ivor McDinn and Auntie Vaxx
The Dictator Magazine, September 28th, 2021

The narrative that defibrillators are life saving devices has gained wide traction for many years now. Here is why that narrative is a lie.

Defibrillators were created by Big Medical Device and are a money making racket! Big Medical Device is coining it in from them. This is a multi-billion dollar industry. Defibrillators cost big money and the vast majority of them never get used. The dogs on the street know that those who say they are needed have skin in the game, they’re corrupt and paid off.

What’s the use rate for defibrillators? 0.003%? They’re pointless. The risk/balance calculation is categorically in favour of not having them. Exercise is good for you, not bad for you! Those who call for defibrillators to be compulsory at sports clubs and schools and anywhere where people go to exercise are therefore saying that exercise is bad for you! Liars!

Defibrillators are an infringement on personal freedom. Nobody asked Christian Eriksen whether he wanted to have electricity shot through him. That’s coercion, it’s tyranny.

There’s no evidence that defibrillators work. There’s no evidence that a defibrillator saved Christian Eriksen. Did he recover because of a defibrillator, or WITH a defibrillator? Was it all just a big coincidence? Was he even ill at all? He was probably just tired!

People who defibrillators are used on still die. Therefore defibrillators don’t work.

How many people die playing sport? Very few. Almost nobody. People need to accept a small amount of risk. Death is part of life. We should not fear death.

There is no data on the long term safety of defibrillators. How do we do know that all that electricity won’t lead to much worse health problems in the future? Nobody can say they won’t.

Defibrillators pump radiation and 5G technology through people. We know that radiation and 5G technology is part of the new world order plan for The Great Reset and one world government.

Defibrillators are heart nappies. Whatever happened to all the real men? Can't the woke snowflakes play football without presuming they might die? We're sick of the woke fascists and health mafia telling everybody they need defibrillators. It’s virtue signalling nonsense.

We're not anti-defibrillator, we're defibrillator-hesitant.

Those who refuse to respect our opinion are fascists! And we're sick of being talked DOWN TO by the defibrillator police!

We're just asking questions! Do your own resertch!

He should ask himself why Seamus Darby’s goal is so highly lauded. It was hardly a masterpiece.
It was a great goal actually. Brilliant corner forward play to get himself in position to gather the ball and a brilliant finish on the turn. He did Tommy Doyle up like a kipper.

Shop worker in petrol station in Germany murdered by anti masker
https://news.sky.com/story/germany-petrol-station-worker-shot-dead-following-mask-row-as-man-arrested-on-suspicion-of-murder-12413527

this is what things have come to
Anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers are the new Incels.

The ideology of hatred, the enmity towards truth and reason and the sheer contempt for the lives of others which permeates these "movements" are reminiscent of Anders Behring Breivik and the Christchurch mass murderer.

It is terrifying.

One of the key tenets of the sort of Ayn Rand style libertarianism publicly espoused by the Q Party is that employers should have the freedom to set conditions of employment and deny people access to their premises on a whim.

This is one of the very rare occasions where that sort of libertarian ideology is actually correct, because it holds that any business should be able to mandate vaccines for employees and anybody who enters the premises. Which is very sensible in terms of public health and the health of those who work and enter business premises.

But the people who publicly espouse libertarianism have suddenly renounced that, just because it doesn't suit them.

And they have renounced it because they don't actually believe libertarianism at all, they use it as a front for tyranny, as libertarianism has always been used.

Those who refuse to get vaccinated are being selfish bastards who care nothing for others. They don't care if they spread Covid to somebody and that person dies.

That is real tyranny.

No more needs to be said. And no false respect or nicety should be paid to such an ideology.

Because it's literally quite happy to kill you.

At all stages of this pandemic, the US right-wing political and media bullshit machine has engaged in magical thinking.

And as their bullshit has continually collapsed around them, they have retreated ever further into an alternate reality universe in which they try to convince themselves that what they are saying is not absolute bollocks.

It is absolute bollocks.

But it is also yet more mass conditioning for the coming assault of full fascism in the US, which requires the creation of an alternate reality which is believed by massive swathes of the population.

This is basic history and anybody who ignores it is complicit.

I wouldnt be particularly a fan of Peter Keane, but I think he's been really hard done by!

They were a whisker away from Tyrone and I think would have handled Mayo (or Dublin) handy enough in the final.

I'd make them warm favourites to win next year if they retained Keane. But a new manager with new ideas, new gameplan, maybe new players, will inevitably lead to a step back, and while that may subsequently lead to two steps forward, it's more of a gamble.

Look at Tyrone this year...
Oh not saying first time managers can't win. It has happened quite a few times in the last 30 years.
Peter Keane would be going into Year 4 if he remained.

For All-Ireland winning managers, winning early after coming into the job is the norm, with few exceptions. There are very few managers who win their first All-Ireland in Year 4 or afterwards. Which is not very optimistic for James Horan.

No All-Ireland winning manager has won their first title in Year 4 or later since Sean Boylan. Eugene McGee is the only other one going back to the 1970s since Kevin Heffernan pretty much started the modern concept of the manager.

And they did it by slowly building up a team from a low base. They didn't do it in Kerry.

Kevin Heffernan - 1st year
Mick O'Dwyer - 1st year
Tony Hanahoe - 1st year
Eugene McGee - 6th year
Sean Boylan - 5th year
Billy Morgan - 3rd year
Peter McGrath - 2nd year
Brian McEniff - 3rd year (of that particular spell – he had had two previous spells as manager)
Eamon Coleman - 3rd year
Pat O'Neill - 3rd year
Paidi O'Se - 2nd year
John O'Mahony - 1st year
Joe Kernan - 1st year
Mickey Harte - 1st year
Jack O'Connor - 1st year
Pat O'Shea - 1st year
Conor Counihan - 3rd year
Pat Gilroy - 3rd year
Jim McGuinness - 2nd year
Jim Gavin - 1st year
Eamonn Fitzmaurice - 2nd year
Dessie Farrell - 1st year
Brian Dooher/Fergal Logan - 1st year

Donnie Buckley gets some coverage for a coach. Was he not with Kerry when beat by cork? Was he involved with those naive mayo teams? Even look at Monaghan last year, shocking defending against Armagh and tyrone at times . He’s obviously a decent coach but not sure he’s won a lot?
He had left long before that. 2019 was the only year he was involved.

His record speaks for itself. He improves teams hugely.

If Peter Keane remained as Kerry manager they might win an All-Ireland because the players he has at his disposal are that good that they might win it anyway.

But they wouldn't be winning it because of him.

He just isn't very good as a manager at this level.

Donie Buckley leaving the set up was an indictment. Buckley is now lined up as part of a proposed alternative management team under Stephen Stack.

And Kerry's losses to Cork and Tyrone were also an indictment of the set up. They were matches Kerry should have had in their pocket.

I don't believe Kerry would have beaten Mayo in the final, by the way, I think they would have played to Mayo's strengths in a way Tyrone didn't.

The lowest common denominator absurdity is to compare the Connacht Hurling Final, a match which has taken place on six occasions over the last century, all in the 1990s, with the Munster Hurling Final, one of the biggest occasions in the hurling year ever since the game started being played on an organised basis.


Yep good man, that's exactly what I did  ;D ;D ;D ;D
As far as I can see it is. If not, explain what your point is?

The Connacht hurling final was played for six years in the 1990s between Galway and Roscommon, with Galway always winning by as much they wanted, each year in front of two men and a dog.

The most noteworthy thing to occur in one of these Connacht hurling finals was Joe Rabbitte nearly getting killed when a Roscommon player blindsided him with a full force strike of a hurley to the head.

Would any serious hurling person advocate abolishing the Munster Hurling final?

Why would any serious football person in Ulster, or anywhere for that matter, advocate abolishing the Ulster football final and the Ulster Championship?

There seems to be a consensus among those against the league system that provincial titles will mean nothing if not directly linked with progression to the All Ireland semi finals (or quarter-finals). I'm really not sure that's true. But if it is, it doesn't say a whole lot for retaining them.
Indeed.
If they can't stand on their own 2 feet they can't be that vital.
Problem with them linking to AI Championship is the 11/9/7/6 participants; unfairness on Ulster Counties; the sleepwalk past hurling Counties to AI series for Kerry: the Dublin monopoly of Leinster and a Connacht County can get to the last 12 with 1 game against a D4 team.

A possible compromise on Proposal B would be to play the Provincials in traditional knock out format during the NFL- like soccer cup competitions, with certain  weekends (4 required) set aside for them.
Sure that's like saying if you separate World Cup qualifiers from the World Cup so that they're no longer World Cup qualifiers, and they can "no longer stand on their own two feet", they can't be that important.

I mean the NFL in America is a pointer as to how valuable the provincial championships are.

They have divisional titles - with the divisions always made up of the same teams, like the NFC East - it's always the New York Giants, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Washington whatever they're called nows, and the Dallas Cowboys. The NFL has eight of these divisional titles. Not every team can win the Superbowl, but every divisional title is an achievement in itself.

The point is that as well as being ends in and of themselves, divisional titles qualify you for the play-offs. They are all inextricably tied into the road to the Superbowl. 8 of the 12 play-off teams are divisional champions - there are four wild cards, the NFL's equivalent of back door qualifiers.

Then you have your Conference championships, which are the next step up from divisional championships.

If you removed the divisional and Conference championships from American football's NFL season and played them as pre-season competitions, do you think they'd matter anymore?

Is there any serious hurling person advocating the reinstatement of the Connacht hurling final? If it had been around for the last 10 years it wouldn't have been that much less competitive than the Leinster football championship.

Do the proposals seek to abolish the Ulster championship? To quote a wise poster, I hope you are not:
"You just substituted in a lowest common denominator absurdity in the absence of a real reply"

As far as I'm aware, the proposal is to run it separately so teams can still have a run at it, but while also leveling the playing field for Ulster counties when it comes to fighting for Sam.

There seems to be a consensus among those against the league system that provincial titles will mean nothing if not directly linked with progression to the All Ireland semi finals (or quarter-finals). I'm really not sure that's true. But if it is, it doesn't say a whole lot for retaining them. Tyrone v Armagh in a QF in the proposed system would still be a massive game to the players and fans involved.

But sure you've just substituted in a lowest denominator absurdity in the absence of a real argument.

The lowest common denominator absurdity is to compare the Connacht Hurling Final, a match which has taken place on six occasions over the last century, all in the 1990s, with the Munster Hurling Final, one of the biggest occasions in the hurling year ever since the game started being played on an organised basis.

Do you not see how absurd and lowest common denominator this is?

It's also an absurd, lowest common denominator, gaslighting exercise to claim that a standalone "Ulster Football Championship", played in February and March, will retain its prestige.

There is a short answer to that. It will not.

I mean it's in the proposal itself. It calls them "pre-season competitions". They'll have all the prestige of the McKenna Cup, the O'Byrne Cup, the FBD League, the Makita International tournament and a pre-season friendly between Shamrock Rovers and Djurgarden.

Provincial finals in high summer have massive value as occasions, in terms of selling the game, in terms of prestige, in terms of history, in terms of being genuinely something for mid-ranking teams to aim at. To throw that away for a rationalised, deeply predictable league with masses of empty spaces in the crowd, where all those occasions are lost forever, is madness.

Sweet Jesus......you haven’t changed. 

Data from an NBC poll is about as reliable as what you’d get reading articles from the National Eqnuirer
Reality has never suited you, buddy.

Keep talking absolute bollocks by all means though.
