    Seems a strange political play to encourage your own voters to die preventable deaths.
    Florida is a special kind of crazy, Republicunts turning it into some sort of a Darwin award sponsored euthanasia experiment.

      you saw the Donegal video from yesterday? Its not just Florida.


      Edit: typing Florida, I just now realised the rapper Flo Rida is literally that name just with a space and that's the intent of the name. Had always (in my very limited interactions with his space) emphasised the 'rida' = 'rider' aspect of the name.

        Florida lol.- I probably mentioned this before.
        I remember years ago the other half was on a project in St Pauls so I flew over for a few days (1st class paid for by her job tyvm) . We went to Bushe Gardens with her colleagues , and me being a rollercoaster nut back then was getting on every ride in the park. However nobody in our group fancied the rollercoasters. I was half jarred on those alcho Jelly things along with a few beers was a wee bit loud (yes louder than the locals). I roared ‘WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE’ every turn in roller coaster etc and I was slagging the arse off the local yokels , banter etc. Then they started following me all over the park. got a dressing down by the missus . We are here with Colleagues so don’t be mixing with those or going off with them . Anyway I gave them the slip and we went into some show in a big tent, about 20 of them marched down the aisle after asking the usher if she saw an Irishman (lol) coming in. Wtf, we were talking next day and we said, it was probably like when a lion see something it never saw before , plays with it for a while then kills it. Yokels and beer , (and ME) I’m thinking the missus saved me that night from a yahoo style execution

          Sounds like a very boring version of Deliverance.

              I think Florida has pretty much always been No 1 in the 'craziest state in the US' awards. Just a mad place generally.

                  Been hearing about a ridiculous number of people with corona recently. It must be rampant. No-one seriously affected, more bothered by having to stay home, so thank you vaccines, but it ain't gone away for sure. I don't know why there are 10% of gobshites wandering around unvaccinated.

                    Weren't you just recently saying we should stop talking about it?

                    Also: the numbers are flat and trending gently downwards...

                      I said, during August, that we should move towards lifting the last set of restrictions. Glad to see the government followed my advice.

                      Surprised the test numbers are falling, maybe its just the people I know - late adopters perhaps.

                        Pubs in Dublin - show covid passport, names and contact details. Stay at your table and if you dare go for a piss, mask up and gtfo at 11pm

                              5 different pubs, never once asked for Covid Cert. Live Country band twice with dozens of couples up dancing and never saw last orders leaving at midnight latest.

                              That said Dingle was the same as Dublin.

                                Rural Cork ~50%

                                  I'd say its heavily related to how much you spending €20 in the pub that evening will make or break the pub bank account.

                                                A video of Joe at home after being 'rescued' from the hospital.

                                                https://streamable.com/6jql5e

                                                I went into the video knowing he was an anti-vaxxer and apparently quite a few other dodgy things also. Had stood for election as some weird intolerant party ages ago, I think.

                                                But when you look at the video all you see is someone who was and is absolutely scared to death. And probably taken advantage of as a result.

                                                Apparently, he's now back in the hospital and in an induced coma. Best of luck Joe.

                                                        Every state has rednecks. Go upstate in New York and have a look.

                                                        Florida isn't part of the historic Deep South unlike the other states you mention (although people will dispute Texas), it's always been a place unto itself with a unique culture and tradition - one that seems to have gone on steroids lately.

I would have my doubts as to letterkennys center of excellence when it comes to treating respiratory issues.

Perhaps it is the influence of a curated newsfeed courtest of the overlords at FB, but all I am seeing is " gangs of youths are running riot - tyres slashed " and similar posts. Is it that bad?

Putting him on a ventilator (a scarce resource) for the hell of it? He also visibly does have a line in his right arm and a bandage over the location where they presumably had a line previously in his left arm. Can't see these track marks you're referring to, in that video at least.


                                                                      Like, devil's advocate how? You think the lad removing the Covid patient from hospital is the sensible one here and the doctor and nurse are somehow the ones in the wrong? This isn't a case of "I'm just asking questions". What do you think is going on if you feel his breathing isn't laboured etc despite the doctor explicitly saying to him, in the video, that he is "barely able to breathe there now" while the other chap says the doctors are going to kill him. Which one of them are you saying is right?

Its absolutely mental and his breathing is clearly not right. I'd take a doctors word before the lad trying to drag him out praising that Cahill gowl

                                                                                          Citizens Information is an invaluable resource but not great on the subtleties of constitutional law and rights. Which is actually fair enough, it's not a legal resource.

                                                                                          Mandatory vaccination is a very difficult issue. There is a delicate balance to be struck between individual rights and the public good. That's not something that can be done easily. The law has to be proportionate to its objective and the objective has to be clear and unambiguous. If I have a genuinely held religious belief against vaccination, does the State have the right to force me to be vaccinated? Even if it is a personal belief, genuinely and strongly held in good faith, can the State override that in all circumstances? Are there exceptions and, if so, what are they?

                                                                                          Direct mandates are difficult to operate. Indirect mandates even more so. Make public services, employment and so forth contingent on vaccination and you get to the same result. Mandatory vaccination by indirect means. But the same problems arise with it. Finding a balance between the two is really difficult and a policy problem for which I have never heard a good or reasonable answer.

                                                                                          As I said, I think the public good exception does give scope for some form of approach (direct or indirect mandate) but it will 100% be challenged by a combination of good faith actors and the usual suspects.

                                                                                              Mandatory vaccination is a very difficult issue. There is a delicate balance to be struck between individual rights and the public good. That's not something that can be done easily. The law has to be proportionate to its objective and the objective has to be clear and unambiguous. If I have a genuinely held religious belief against vaccination, does the State have the right to force me to be vaccinated? Even if it is a personal belief, genuinely and strongly held in good faith, can the State override that in all circumstances? Are there exceptions and, if so, what are they?

                                                                                              Direct mandates are difficult to operate. Indirect mandates even more so. Make public services, employment and so forth contingent on vaccination and you get to the same result. Mandatory vaccination by indirect means. But the same problems arise with it. Finding a balance between the two is really difficult and a policy problem for which I have never heard a good or reasonable answer.

                                                                                              As I said, I think the public good exception does give scope for some form of approach (direct or indirect mandate) but it will 100% be challenged by a combination of good faith actors and the usual suspects.
                                                                                              Do I have the right to endanger others?

But the extent of that danger and the degree to which that danger can override the individual right not to be interfered with or have medical treatment foisted on them is the question. And there is not a simple or obvious answer.

Putting him on a ventilator (a scarce resource) for the hell of it? He also visibly does have a line in his right arm and a bandage over the location where they presumably had a line previously in his left arm. Can't see these track marks you're referring to, in that video at least.


                                                                                                      Like, devil's advocate how? You think the lad removing the Covid patient from hospital is the sensible one here and the doctor and nurse are somehow the ones in the wrong? This isn't a case of "I'm just asking questions". What do you think is going on if you feel his breathing isn't laboured etc despite the doctor explicitly saying to him, in the video, that he is "barely able to breathe there now" while the other chap says the doctors are going to kill him. Which one of them are you saying is right?

The problem is you replied to just a quick clip instead of checking out the story first. See it all the time online, people responding to things when they dont actually know the full story available. And when people do that and are in the wrong, they should be called on it. Nothing more to it.

For starting off any basic model will do but make sure the action isnt too high. The shop will tell you. 300 max starting off then as you progress you might like better models .

                                                                                                                    I'd also recommend finger exercises on the guitar to develop finger independance. Then learn some chords and some songs and enjoy. You may prefer to simply learn scales and jam etc . I'd also advise to have set times every day to spend to practice but try to have the mindset that's it's not a chore

                                                                                                                    Journal your practice and tick off as you gain competence.
                                                                                                                    Called into music shop this morning and spoke with the sales guy and guitar tech, recommended the below, only 220 bucks so decent value in my ignorant opinion. Now to practice tuning, they also gave me a snark tuner thing.

                                                                                                                      Secondly, and this isnt a dig at you, it's people and society in general. The problem is you replied to just a quick clip instead of checking out the story first. See it all the time online, people responding to things when they dont actually know the full story available. And when people do that and are in the wrong, they should be called on it. Nothing more to it.
                                                                                                                      Do you think HH investigated the full facts before adding to that streamable link he posted the following "Apparently, he's now back in the hospital and in an induced coma" He found a clip and posted it up without doing full due diligence...is thats whats needed now before offering comment in general ? As i stated, i had more information a few mins later and i then had a view, before that i was as i said playing devils advocate and offering another side to hitches story without taking any side whatsoever.

                                                                                                                      This too shall pass.

                                                                                                                          Hitchs post was a follow up to his post about the story yesterday. When he mentioned it yesterday, I searched for and watched the video. He didnt randomly pick that clip to post it for no reason.

                                                                                                                          Maybe you missed his OP on it yesterday which is fair enough. There is absolutely no requirement for "due diligence" before you comment on anything. But you were on the wrong side of it and playing Devils advocate made no sense which is why I tried to add context, not outrage.

                                                                                                                          I concede I didnt read on and see your later post that I've now seen. But again, it was absolutely nothing personal so I'll leave it there.
