offsite link The Cochrane Editors? Latest Statement About My Mask Study is Misleading and Spin Fri Jun 14, 2024 17:04 | Dr Tom Jefferson
With their latest statement the Cochrane Editors continue to mislead and spin, says Dr Tom Jefferson. While they have left the famous mask study unchanged, they have failed to retract the statements that cast doubt on it.

Retired airline captain James Leary says the easiest way to understand weather is to think of a zoo full of animals fighting over limited food in a giant balloon. The idea that this can be 'modelled' is for the birds.

The question of immigration cannot be separated from the deeper issue of whether we are governed nationally or globally, democratically or technocratically, says Dr David McGrogan. We are being deliberately uprooted.

One reason to vote Reform is not because you think they have a chance of winning more than one seat. Rather, the more votes they get on July 4th, the stronger the case for a Right-wing Tory to succeed Rishi Sunak.

How can the Irish people vote for a former Fianna Fáil luminary after all that has happened under the watch of the Soldiers of Density?

@ serf and another commentator.  We can dream while sleepwalking. Shakespeare said (King Lear) :

"We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little lives are rounded with a sleep."

Gallagher will edge Michael D with votes from the sleepwalkers.

Simple really. Paul Simon put it best: Such are promises... All lies and jest... Still, a man hears what he wants to hear... And disregards the rest.

"Alas the Irish Dream persists and will persist and it will remain a social dream (call it a fantasy if you will) that the Left outside the Labour Party cannot dislodge."

Invest in a copy of the current Phoenix. Background on both MDH and G. Information.

I think, if i do vote, I'll vote for dangerous dan mcgrewsome.. the bogie man who has the neo-unionist pale-face shitteratti filling their collective media nappy.

No sign of MDH refusing the onerous burden of 300K pa. Or challenging the pink-collared blueshirt ECB kissing.
Fruity tones of cherry-red careering upwards into the victors history buck.

I'd vote for the Rubberbandits...in fact.....no I'll stick with the big bad wolf.

You begin the thread with an interesting question: "How can the Irish people vote for a former Fianna Fáil luminary after all that has happened under the watch of the Soldiers of Density?"

My suggestion is that the mishandling of the economy and the lax attitudes of FF towards the banks and the building industry have not blotted out the "Irish Dream" among the run-of-the-mill voters. About eighty percent of punters since 1922 have supported FF or FG. These two centrist parties represent the muddle of the road economic aspirations of most citizens. I don't like that, but that's what people feel. They want an ideology-lite platform of socio-economic policies that will give them jobs, schools, grants and welfare supports, and have since 1922 thought, however deludedly, that FF-FG will deliver. Marxists and other radicals can talk until the cows come home about false consciousness, hidden ideological substructure and superstructure, nationalist smokescreening, religious opium, hidden curricula in the schooling process, Gramscian 'hegemony', media bias and obfuscation and anything else that may keep the masses deluded. Alas the Irish Dream persists and will persist and it will remain a social dream (call it a fantasy if you will) that the Left outside the Labour Party cannot dislodge.

Gallagher epitomises gladhanding, suited entreprenurial respectability in the eyes of most voters. He is what many quietly would like to become. I won't vote for him as I don't believe the dream he embodies. I am really sorry for Michael D Higgins, who if elected president would uphold the role of the arts and intellectual discourse in Irish life. For all his virtues and personal perseverance in public life going back 25 years, Michael D is alas not part of the Irish Dream.

But if any posters can convince me otherwise, let them try.

..is ye can still fool mosta de sheeple mosta de time...especially if they want to be fooled...how long did it take to eject the PDs..and here comes, as you say, the same old plonk(ers) in a fresh bottle of smoke...

Mudder Oirlind...pull out the plug..she's flat-lining...but its actually a bigger problem, look at the Euro shufflers chasing their tails over the precipice...twentieth century minds(well, nineteenth really)and we're a decade into the twenty-first.

And Obama KNOWS better..but he still follows the Bush-map..pull that chain, she's down the drain.
