        If you take the wee donkey what will happen to Jesus, Mary and Joesph ? Will you just leave them at the side of the road..?

          aye, they can walk
          sure grass never grows on a busy street and you’d never see a baldy headed donkey,
          anyway there’s no one like the three of them since leatherarse died,
          the things ya see when you forget your gun hi.

      I can’t see the American public standing for such prices. Paying an astronomical (equivalent Euro of) €0.86
      per litre for petrol at the pumps. Oh wait – and we’re paying twice that.

        a friend of mine in California gets crazy queer looks if he walks anywhere, they drive down to the shops sure… heading the same way here

          LA has many great walkable hood’s,Santa Monica,Venice Beach,West Hollywood,in many ways offering the ideal modern living experience,as does SF,then there are all the walkable towns like Carmel and Palm Springs,

          Anyway,who buys groceries and shleps them anymore,its farmers markets and delivery in LA,only the poor shop for groceries in stores,its how it is.

          1. TenPin Terry

            SF is walkable ?
            Only if you’re able to navigate the human excrement, crack addicts shooting up and tent cities on every corner.
            Mind you, just about any Democrat-controlled city in the US is turning into the Congo these days.

            you are an incredibly boring little man with a huge chip on his shoulders,
            I won’t be interacting with you anymore as frankly I wouldn’t give you the time of day in real life so I don’t see why I do here, you are an absolute craics vacuum and are impossible to engage with,
            too little comprehension and a limited ability to communicate just makes it too tiring and irritating to bother.
            Peace out little J.

            I didn’t know you were the arbiter of such things around here.

            Funny ol’ world altogether.

            Mad is on a journey with his ego and competitiveness and need for attention that is just beginning…it’s a beautiful thing to be at the bottom of a great mountain,
            from little things great oak trees grow.

          5. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

            Mad I’m on the same mountain, even when I agree with Johnny he winds me up, some of that’s on me so it’s just gonna be nicer for everyone if I don’t engage.

            Is that the average per pump I wonder or per what the average person pays. California is much larger than Mississippi in terms of population.

            Also your number you picked is for regular gas, which a lot of cars can’t even use. The average cost of a gallon of premium (almost every European car needs this) is $4, this is nationwide.

            Forget the bores and social and intellectual challenged.. we can think about pony tails and fun times with fun people.. ; )

      LOLs at the naivety

      Australian government trying to save face amid dismal viewer ratings of the open

      1. E'Matty

        Exactly. Once Djokavic was excluded most just returned to ignoring the Open. Had it played after the nonsense, it probably would have been one of the most viewed Opens in years.

      The team had just won Ireland a seat on the security council. That is essential work for the country, they were together. Lock down or no lock so what. Of course they are going to celebrate. All over this country people were meeting in pubs and shebeens, right throughout lockdown. Many people, including many on this site, were vehemently opposed to lockdown.. some even doubted if any of this was real. This is a non story, and congratulations to the team behind the scenes because the one thing we do know in all of this, it wasn’t that plank Coveney who made the difference…

      1. E'Matty

        “That is essential work for the country” essential eh? How so?

        You ignore the fact these a holes were in clear breach of their own Department’s guidelines and government guidelines at the time. The rest of the country, us plebs, were living completely restricted lives but once again, the self serving class chose to ignore these restrictions. People are in court for travelling outside 5km from their homes. Others for not wearing an utterly useless mask in shops. More again for daring to travel to the airport.

        It amazes me that the Covidian cultists never put two and two together during this time. Be it this gathering, GolfGate, Merrion Gate, the RTE party and so on, it’s clear the political, media and legal community’s senior figures were never one bit afraid of this virus, whilst at the same time they engaged in an active psychological terror campaign against the ordinary citizens.

        1. bisted

          …it amazes me that despite golfgate, merriongate etc 92% of adults got vaccinated…people sought and believed the best information they could get…mostly from NPHET…solidarity got us this far…

          1. GiggidyGoo

            Maybe you’ll explain how the hatred of protestants panned out and got us this far in Northern Ireland too, seeing as you are directly involved in that hatred.

          2. bisted

            …it was horrible Giggser…even worse for the people who define themselves as catholic whom I hate even more…and don’t start me on seventh day adventists…

          3. GiggidyGoo

            Not an explantation though why you hate protestants, but your hatred no doubt manifested itself by actions?

        I have no problem with Champagne-gate.
        Celebrating a diplomatic success with a glass of bubbly is a part of normal work life for civil servants – and normal work life continued for the few of them not WFH.
        As is a surprise birthday cake or a glass of wine with colleagues at the end of a very,very long day managing the pandemic at the height of its severity.
        See how it works both ways ?

      3. GiggidyGoo

        @Cú Chulainn
        So you’d have had no problems with a couple getting married and ‘flouting’ the rules laid down at the time. After all it was a celebration etc. etc.
        Did the babby play a part?

          1. GiggidyGoo

            Nope. The picture of the celebration had a baby in it. Do try and keep up.

            So, anyway, why do you hate (your word) protestants.

      Thanks for the link. Encouraging sign that the conference was held at the US senate office building – in terms of moving towards a critical mass of awareness
