The scary thing is that these people actually won an election.

As the President said a true poet.

Incidentally I saw him twice in the pub once in Dublin and once in London and like Mr. Kipling said it wasn't pretty.

Thanks for such fun and joy through your songs!!

My future is so insecure.

Posted in: Clashes in Dublin after children injured in suspected stabbing See in context

This isn't about race.

It's about a bunch of disenchanted delinquents looking for a reason to be delinquents.

Sadly there are plenty like that in Dublin.

And it was a Brazilian who stopped the attacker.

Ooh an immigrant.

Posted in: Clashes in Dublin after children injured in suspected stabbing See in context

As a Dubliner it is very sad to see this.

And while there are legitimate worries about the amount of immigration especially when there is an accomodation crisis, the reaction of the yobs who decided to riot is even more saddening.

Interestingly they looted a footlocker store which sort of undermines their altruistic motives.

More interested in the latest sports wear more than an immigrant problem.

However this issue is boiling under the surface and won't take much to spark it.

A Slovakian was convicted of a savage murder last week, now a foreigner stabbing it all adds up and there are plenty of people willing to take advantage of this to stir the pot and enliven their miserable lives.

Posted in: Japan to ban cannabinoid HHCH from Dec 2 after gummies make many ill See in context

I just passed the cafe near my home .

They have a sign on the door saying HHCH products are now banned.

But as I was leaving the owner came out and say they had plenty of alternatives.

Just a letter or two different

I tried a joint from one of those places.

Effect was quite long lasting and gnarly.

Not the same as the real thing.

The cafe was thriving.

Just like Korea.

They are getting close to a point of no return on the population.

Everyone saying it'll be much better with fewer people are deluded on how this happens.

Over half the JHS I went to as a JET in Ehime in the late 90s are closed now.

At least 15 out of nearly 30.

When you get countries like Mexico and Thailand sending planes to evacuate their citizens it makes you wonder what is coming next.

It's a nightmare scenario.

I think you should stick to making your exceedingly delicious cakes rather than running down the Irish all the time.

Now the All blacks.

If you want to be the world champion you need to beat the best teams.

It's a 50-50.

But it will definitely be exciting
