You ain't spending the time digging through my post history for a personal attack because it don't exist. Save you the time.

Let me show you how dishonest James is being right now, just this one example;

Well you can thank us for the hypodermic needle used to inject the vaccine in to your body I guess.

Have a nice day brah!

1. That ain't personal.
2. You conviently left out what I was replying to. Here let me help;

It really is.  Maybe the Irish can contribute something and you'll finally have some national pride.

You see James here continues his bullshit slanted view even though RF has already admitted he went too far and apologised for it which I accepted and put behind me. I will Atleast respect him for that and I will always give someone another chance. If he didn't get obnoxious I probably wouldn't even be posting but remain lurking.


Oh BTW, I wasn't moaning about personal attacks, it was Mitch, which he was more than entitled to do regardless of how factual it was.

You talk about bait lol. Here was the first post to start it,

No Irish.... personal attacks aren't condoned here but here's a tip.... don't talk about your personal life on a public forum where you get into heated discussions with people from time to time.

It reminds me of the buzz- Bono-Russ-etc fiasco. Everybody knew everybody's shit somehow yet supposedly me/Evo deserved part of the blame.

Bullshit.

This is the equivalent of saying to a rape victim,

Well you wouldn't have got raped if you weren't wearing revealing clothes. sad


Last word to you James. I've said all I'm gonna say on it.

Alright, no one has to leave and we don't have to fuel any fights. Just let it go. If we're doing something that we know is causing conflict, just stop doing it. That's pretty easy.

ABC News
Activists take over hotel to demand housing for homeless during pandemic
57 mins ago

Members of a housing advocacy group were arrested in Washington state Sunday after they allegedly stormed a hotel in Olympia and occupied it while demanding better care for people living on the streets.


Olympia police said around 11 a.m., around 45 members of the group Oly Housing Now, some of whom were reportedly armed with hatchets, batons and knives and had gas masks, helmets and goggles, gathered outside the Red Lion Hotel in Olympia and made their way inside.

Oly Housing Now released a statement in which it claimed the members took the hotel for "emergency pandemic housing," and demanded the city pay for rooms using Federal Emergency Management Agency funding.

The hotel's staff called 911 after they said they "felt under threat from the group, and that an employee was allegedly assaulted," according to the police. The staff of seven sheltered in the hotel's basement for the rest of the afternoon and early evening while the activists took the hotel.

Before the demonstration, the group had reserved and paid for 17 rooms, which they used to house people experiencing homelessness, according to the police. Guests in 40 rooms sheltered in place during the incident, police said.

Officers eventually escorted the staff out of the building later in the night and went floor by floor clearing out the hotel. The people without homes who were living in the hotels were connected with the city's social services, according to the police.

"The City’s Crisis Response Unit is connecting those unhoused people to services. They will not be allowed to remain at the hotel," the police said in a statement.

Olympia Interim Police Chief Aaron Jelcick told reporters Monday that 10 people were arrested and charged with various crimes, including burglary in the first degree, assault in the first-degree and obstruction of a public servant. Jelcick said the group allegedly recruited about 30 people from homeless encampments throughout the city to stay in these rooms, telling these individuals that they could stay in the rooms indefinitely.

No homeless individual was charged related to the incident, police said.

Representatives from Oly Housing Now did not immediately return messages for comment. A spokeswoman for the Red Lion Hotel chain said the company has been in touch with the owner of the Olympia hotel and they are working with officials in their investigation.

In a statement to the press Sunday, Olympia Mayor Cheryl Selby said the city is taking its homelessness issue seriously.

"Olympia has led on responding to homelessness, on coordinating shelter and other basic needs," she said in a statement. "The tactics used today by Oly Housing Now are unproductive and won’t make the mission more attainable."

Why aren't these people taking the homeless into their own homes?

All three could drop the insults, but in general one party does have to drop the attitutde. Putting the insults and attacks aside (which Mitch and Irish are also guilty of, whoever cast the first stone with this bs is irrelevant) Flagg's tone is always incendinary and condescending. There'd probably be a lot less shitflinging if he just dropped that. It's the same problem Buzz had, although he was even more of a wrecking ball.

Back to current events... Navalny's show trial has commenced. The Russian authorities are saying he should have notified his parole officers despite the fact that he was in a coma. 16

Good.... because we've reached the point where we're comparing this situation to that of a rape victim.

Yep....I've said this several times as well. It never gets through. If it was a discussion about anything else but politics they might scroll past it. Then take into consideration the long history everybody has here.

We used to have an ignore user feature here. I'll try to get it back but Im not sure that's going to help the situation.

Flagg can definitely be abrasive and has a way with words.

Years ago during various discussions about foreign policy, he'd make some comment about people supporting the military because their grandpa stormed the beach at Normandy. While he didn't single me out specifically, it was clearly a dig at me. Did I freak out and start lashing out at him? No. I just responded to his points without zeroing in on that specific comment. I also thought it was funny and besides, I don't think he meant anything bad by it.

But yeah ...Flagg and several others could definitely take things down a notch.


Now back to regularly scheduled programming.....

I still can't believe they're not going forward with 2k like they promised during the Georgia senate race.

That's gonna bite them on the ass later.

So, some folks in Congress are calling AOC out for saying a mob was outside her office and we're actively trying to kill her while she hid behind a door. Apparently, the crowd never reached her hallway, and she was never in any danger -- and weren't they looking to kill Pence?

But if AOC and her squad are saying there are white supremacists in congress, shouldn't they name names so we can hold public hearings? And if they're found to be lying, shouldn't they be expelled?
