    This is actually important.

    I can't understand all the hoopla over the North Korean situation, when this story has just occurred.

    So let me get this right. The British Government snatched him off the streets. Gave him an insanely quickie trial with a 13 month prison sentence, and one in which he isn't going to be allowed to communicate with the outside world.

    Apparently it was brought up at the "trial" that he stood a good chance of being killed by Muslims in prison (as has happened to others in the UK). And the casual respons was he knew what he was doing, and that would just be unfortunate of course.

    There has also been a protest or two over there. Apparently the police weren't expecting this, and you can see videos of them being noticeably flustered and actually kind of being pushed around (no police had full riot gear and shields though, nor an organized force).

    My take is this has the potential to be earthshaking. Bigger than Brexit even if you ask me. I could be wrong, it would be great to hear from any UK posters here.

    But as an outside observer this sure seems like the kind of casual arrogance that could topple a government or something. Of course what that means with the UK's system is still way murky to me.

    From the standpoint of anything important the Tories are the same as Labor. So I dunno.

    , @36 ulster
    Judging from the distillery's location on the map, it would seem that the employment of Catholics would be problematic. Bushmills is located in far northern Antrim, a thoroughly Loyalist area of Northern Ireland. Most Catholics live well south, east and west of there. Also, a Catholic who did work there might want to drive a dogleg course from West Belfast or wherever, and be a little reticent to reveal his source of employment to his neighbors. And, of course, there would pressure for Bushies to hire "local" or "loyal" laddies...or lassies, as the case may be.
    , @PV van der Byl
    Hiring at Bushmills is decided by the trade union. Because of the relatively generous wages, Bushmills distillery jobs are not easy to get. One had better be the son, younger brother, or nephew of a current union member to get hired.
    , @Hibernian
    On one episode of "What's My Line?" Peggy Cass said her Dad was fond of Bushmills. Apparently drank whiskey distilled at a distillery where he coudn't work. (That wasn't in any way even hinted at.)

    GDPRmageddon: They think it's all over! Protip, it has only just begun: After months of hysteria, firms sure have their work cut out


    The run-up to the enforcement date of the GDPR has been accompanied by increasingly hysterical reports of non-compliance being hit with unpayable fines, a deluge of unnecessary emails and a suspicious increase in "GDPR certificated" consultants touting their wares on LinkedIn.

    The view of these firms – many of which have no doubt been given questionable advice – is that this is the only way they can continue to send people marketing communications once GDPR is enforced.

    However, they have overlooked the fact that such marketing is already regulated under the EU's e-Privacy Directive – implemented in the UK as the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR), most recently updated in 2003.

    27-year-old black mayor of Stockton (who got into Stanford and discovered that the only way to graduate was to major in black studies) is bribing criminal “youths” to not kill people:

    Stockton is about to award stipends of up to $1,000 a month to residents deemed most likely to shoot somebody. This program is called Advance Peace, and it’s modeled after a crime reduction program in the Bay Area city of Richmond.

    The idea is that a small number of people are responsible for a large percentage of violence, and offering them an alternative path — with counseling and case management over an 18-month period, along with a stipend if they stay the course — can be a good investment all around.

    He says it’s really just the same thing as the Alaskan pipeline fund.

    It’s very true that only a small number of men are responsible for most of the crime. The best way to reduce a city’s crime statistics is to send them off for long prison sentences. It’s really noticeably in cities of less than half a million.

    No wonder Stockton has such a high crime rate. The black population is 12 percent. It’s exactly as it is in the country as a whole. 12 percent of the population causes 80 percent of the problems.

    The non black population is about half White half Hispanic. I wonder how a black mayor got elected? Maybe George Soros paid for the election. He’s targeting a lot of local elections In America

    If they have no income they would get monthly welfare for adults without children, probably $100-150 food stamps and $200 cash. That comes from San Joaquin County

    Will the city of Stockton’s $500 per month make them ineligible for the standard welfare benefit?

    The blacks are probably from the Black hell holes of Oakland Richmond and Pittsburg in the Bay Area.

    Getting completely off-topic, but important: the nation of Brazil is on the verge of collapse. 85% of all truck drivers in the country are on strike since this past Monday, complaining about the very high fuel tax. Since Wednesday there is no fuel left in any petrol station in the country, and food is starting to run out in supermarkets. There is an impending utter social and economic collapse looming. To make it worse, oil refinery workers have joined the strike.

    The government raised taxes on fuels 16 times over the past year as the only way to be able to pay salaries and pensions of public servants. The law prohibits the firing of most categories of public employees, and since the Central Bank strictly controls money supply for anti-inflationary reasons, printing money is not an option. They are facing a kind of Sophie’s Choice, because if they do the trucker’s biding, they won’t be able to pay the nation’s 6 million public servants, and they will cause massive civil unrest and overthrow the government; if they don’t, the economy will collapse completely in less than a month and the country will descend to the level of Namibia.

    Brazil collapsing is not the same as Venezuela collapsing. Brazil is either the World’s 6th or 7th largest economy in the World depending on how you measure GDP, and has a population of over 200 million people. The collapse of Brazil would have utterly devastating geopolitical consequences. How this would affect the U.S at this point besides the huge loss of money that American shareholders of Brazilian oil companies would suffer is unclear.

    That makes it sound like the winning move is either to sell out the country to the IMF and kick the problem to the next election or a government willing to gun down protestors in the street (maybe need a military coup to get the right people).

    Jameson is the Catholic one you are thinking of.

    Wikipedia informs me that Jameson was the world's best selling whiskey in 1805 when Dublin handily outpaced Scotland in global sales.

    Later, it claims, Irish whiskey makers were eclipsed by Scottish distillers following temperance in Ireland, prohibition in the US and the post-indepdence trade war with the UK and ergo the Commonwealth.
    , @Roderick Spode
    I don't know, but nowadays Irish Distillers (who do Jameson) is owned by Pernod, and Bushmills is owned by... Jose Cuervo. Both conglomerates are based out of Catholic countries.
    , @Matra
    Willie Brown, the former mayor of San Francisco, once poured Bushmills whiskey down a drain for the cameras as part of a boycott campaign of the supposedly anti-Catholic distillery. (They actually have lots of Catholic employees but the town itself is pretty hardcore loyalist so most RCs probably wouldn't want to spend much time there anyway). Irish-Americans liked to signal their super Irishness by refusing to drink it, even though most Catholics in Ireland had no trouble with it. John Hume of the Catholic SDLP (Social Democratic and Labour Party) called on Irish-Americans to stop their boycott and, if I'm not mistaken, eventually the Bushmills name ended up on jersey of the GAA team that son of Gerry Adams (or someone close to him) played on. It's been a few decades since I heard of any controversy involving the company.

    Guinness was once known as 'Protestant Porter'. The Guinness family were Unionist Protestants and though their beer was brewed in mostly Catholic Dublin they supposedly wouldn't hire Catholics till some time in the 20th century. Beamish, the main competitor to Guinness, was also run by Protestants in the southern city of Cork.

    You'd think both Catholics and Protestants could put aside these sectarian quibbles and stand united as Gaels against being invaded by say Nigerians. Or when Germany offloads their "fair share" of these muzzies who don't--in theory--drink whiskey at all, but will cause more crime and dysfunction than even a well lubed Irishman.

    My dad knew a Catholic Irishman who married a Prod woman. To avoid a family assassination, they converted to Mormonism on the theory that that way both families would be equally upset and would at least give them a neutral space. It worked. They had six kids and were still married 55 years later.

    The no booze thing was kind of a problem though.
    , @PV van der Byl
    It is important to understand that the Protestant/Catholic distinction among Irish distilleries has nothing to do with sectarian OWNERSHIP.

    Both the Bushmills distillery (in continuous operation since 1608!) and the Jameson distillery were founded by Irish Protestants. Yet, the latter has Catholic, or rather "Nationalist", identity in IRA bars in the US, Canada, etc.

    This is because the TRADE UNION at Jameson's is Catholic (practically if not legally), while the Bushmill's (County Antrim, in the north) trade union is Protestant.

    Because distillery jobs pay higher than prevailing wages, there are always more job applicants than hires. So, to get a job at either the Bushmills or Jameson's distillery, you had better to be some current employees' son, brother, or , at least ,nephew.

    Hence, Jameson is a "Catholic" whiskey (note spelling) despite having been founded by a member (John Jameson) of the Church of Ireland (Episcopalian in American terms). Also, no one thinks of Guinness beer as "Protestant" despite the fact that founder Arthur Guinness was also a Protestant. That is because the trade union there prefers to hire Catholics. Well, recently, anyway.

    Indeed, for a long time, both "Protestant" Bushmills and "Catholic" Guinness were owned by the same international conglomerate, Diageo.

    So, these distinctions are rather arbitrary.

    Nevertheless, be careful about ordering Bushmills in certain bars on the West side of Manhattan or Southie in Boston. You just might get a knuckle sandwich, instead.

    27-year-old black mayor of Stockton (who got into Stanford and discovered that the only way to graduate was to major in black studies) is bribing criminal "youths" to not kill people:

    Stockton is about to award stipends of up to $1,000 a month to residents deemed most likely to shoot somebody. This program is called Advance Peace, and it's modeled after a crime reduction program in the Bay Area city of Richmond.

    The idea is that a small number of people are responsible for a large percentage of violence, and offering them an alternative path — with counseling and case management over an 18-month period, along with a stipend if they stay the course — can be a good investment all around.

    This is actually important.

    I can’t understand all the hoopla over the North Korean situation, when this story has just occurred.

    So let me get this right. The British Government snatched him off the streets. Gave him an insanely quickie trial with a 13 month prison sentence, and one in which he isn’t going to be allowed to communicate with the outside world.

    Apparently it was brought up at the “trial” that he stood a good chance of being killed by Muslims in prison (as has happened to others in the UK). And the casual respons was he knew what he was doing, and that would just be unfortunate of course.

    There has also been a protest or two over there. Apparently the police weren’t expecting this, and you can see videos of them being noticeably flustered and actually kind of being pushed around (no police had full riot gear and shields though, nor an organized force).

    My take is this has the potential to be earthshaking. Bigger than Brexit even if you ask me. I could be wrong, it would be great to hear from any UK posters here.

    But as an outside observer this sure seems like the kind of casual arrogance that could topple a government or something. Of course what that means with the UK’s system is still way murky to me.

    From the standpoint of anything important the Tories are the same as Labor. So I dunno.

    Steve,

    With regard to sectarian Irish whiskeys, as far as I know there is neither a Protestant distillery in Catholic Ireland nor a Catholic distillery in Protestant Ireland (although as already noted there is a Protestant distillery in Protestant Ireland, namely Bushmills in Northern Ireland).

    All the major Irish whiskeys except Bushmills are produced by Irish Distillers in the East Cork town of Midleton in the Irish Republic. Incidentally the Midleton brand is the best Irish whiskey. But the whole shebang is owned by various non-Irish conglomerates.

    But the whole shebang is owned by various non-Irish conglomerates.

    Well that’s the thing: we all just live in different regulatory and marketing zones, not countries. More than a century and a half ago, the Fabian Society said we could get the same world transformation the bomb-throwers wanted but through gradualism.

    What’s this got to do with abortion and Irish whiskey? Well, the Fabian method got Ireland abortion and distilleries owned and regulated by international bureaucracies without the firing of a single Bolshevik bullet.

    Getting completely off-topic, but important: the nation of Brazil is on the verge of collapse. 85% of all truck drivers in the country are on strike since this past Monday, complaining about the very high fuel tax. Since Wednesday there is no fuel left in any petrol station in the country, and food is starting to run out in supermarkets. There is an impending utter social and economic collapse looming. To make it worse, oil refinery workers have joined the strike.

    The government raised taxes on fuels 16 times over the past year as the only way to be able to pay salaries and pensions of public servants. The law prohibits the firing of most categories of public employees, and since the Central Bank strictly controls money supply for anti-inflationary reasons, printing money is not an option. They are facing a kind of Sophie's Choice, because if they do the trucker's biding, they won't be able to pay the nation's 6 million public servants, and they will cause massive civil unrest and overthrow the government; if they don't, the economy will collapse completely in less than a month and the country will descend to the level of Namibia.

    Brazil collapsing is not the same as Venezuela collapsing. Brazil is either the World's 6th or 7th largest economy in the World depending on how you measure GDP, and has a population of over 200 million people. The collapse of Brazil would have utterly devastating geopolitical consequences. How this would affect the U.S at this point besides the huge loss of money that American shareholders of Brazilian oil companies would suffer is unclear.

    Unfortunately, our website is currently unavailable in most European countries. We are engaged on the issue and committed to looking at options that support our full range of digital offerings to the EU market. We continue to identify technical compliance solutions that will provide all readers with our award-winning journalism.
     

    Here is a pretty good writeup btw:

    GDPRmageddon: They think it’s all over! Protip, it has only just begun: After months of hysteria, firms sure have their work cut out

    The run-up to the enforcement date of the GDPR has been accompanied by increasingly hysterical reports of non-compliance being hit with unpayable fines, a deluge of unnecessary emails and a suspicious increase in “GDPR certificated” consultants touting their wares on LinkedIn.

    The view of these firms – many of which have no doubt been given questionable advice – is that this is the only way they can continue to send people marketing communications once GDPR is enforced.

    However, they have overlooked the fact that such marketing is already regulated under the EU’s e-Privacy Directive – implemented in the UK as the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR), most recently updated in 2003.

    And:

    Reg Caesar:

    Bushmills has two distinctions (one dubious, take your pick): perhaps being the world's oldest operating whiskey distillery and never hiring a Roman Catholic. Although in recent years it has been part of different world-wide conglomerates.

    Judging from the distillery’s location on the map, it would seem that the employment of Catholics would be problematic. Bushmills is located in far northern Antrim, a thoroughly Loyalist area of Northern Ireland. Most Catholics live well south, east and west of there. Also, a Catholic who did work there might want to drive a dogleg course from West Belfast or wherever, and be a little reticent to reveal his source of employment to his neighbors. And, of course, there would pressure for Bushies to hire “local” or “loyal” laddies…or lassies, as the case may be.

    Which brand of whiskey is from the Protestant distillery in Catholic Ireland and which brand is from the Catholic distillery in Protestant Ireland?

    Willie Brown, the former mayor of San Francisco, once poured Bushmills whiskey down a drain for the cameras as part of a boycott campaign of the supposedly anti-Catholic distillery. (They actually have lots of Catholic employees but the town itself is pretty hardcore loyalist so most RCs probably wouldn’t want to spend much time there anyway). Irish-Americans liked to signal their super Irishness by refusing to drink it, even though most Catholics in Ireland had no trouble with it. John Hume of the Catholic SDLP (Social Democratic and Labour Party) called on Irish-Americans to stop their boycott and, if I’m not mistaken, eventually the Bushmills name ended up on jersey of the GAA team that son of Gerry Adams (or someone close to him) played on. It’s been a few decades since I heard of any controversy involving the company.

    Guinness was once known as ‘Protestant Porter’. The Guinness family were Unionist Protestants and though their beer was brewed in mostly Catholic Dublin they supposedly wouldn’t hire Catholics till some time in the 20th century. Beamish, the main competitor to Guinness, was also run by Protestants in the southern city of Cork.

    Remember in the 1980s and 1990s when things would go badly in the world and the US would pay for the peacekeepers – usually from France or some African country – but wouldn’t send it’s own troops?

    It was regarded as politically untenable to send US boots-on-the-ground to regions and situations with, at best, only an abstract relationship to US interests.

    Oh and it was always peacekeepers too. Sometimes they’d have a refugee protection mission. They weren’t supposed to take sides in the conflict but often did have a fact-finding mission to report back to the UN. The US would throw in the logistical support: ships, aerial transport, helicopters, etc.

    Our own forces and way-of-war was kept safely in the back pocket and not put out in the open to be studied by our enemies. It had a deterring effect.

    It’s very true that only a small number of men are responsible for most of the crime. The best way to reduce a city’s crime statistics is to send them off for long prison sentences. It’s really noticeably in cities of less than half a million.

    No wonder Stockton has such a high crime rate. The black population is 12 percent. It’s exactly as it is in the country as a whole. 12 percent of the population causes 80 percent of the problems.

    The non black population is about half White half Hispanic. I wonder how a black mayor got elected? Maybe George Soros paid for the election. He’s targeting a lot of local elections In America

    If they have no income they would get monthly welfare for adults without children, probably $100-150 food stamps and $200 cash. That comes from San Joaquin County

    Will the city of Stockton’s $500 per month make them ineligible for the standard welfare benefit?

    The blacks are probably from the Black hell holes of Oakland Richmond and Pittsburg in the Bay Area.

    Your comment about "only a small number of men are responsible for most of the crime" reminded me of the following article from last summer. Apparently there are precious few black people in Madison, Wisconsin, but it's a progressive city and the blacks are worshipped. Except that a few dozen of them, known and in violation of parole, but yet free because they are holy, are vexing the town by shooting it up and killing people. Finally the police chief comes up with a plan: arrest those guys. But the residents are not sure about the optics of that idea.

    http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/local/crime/madison-police-chief-plans-to-round-up-city-s-worst/article_435ac0a7-1b0b-5f81-a107-4b3d33c8bd18.html

    Madison police chief plans to round up city's worst criminals

    A bold short-term plan to remove Madison’s most notorious criminals from the streets was announced by Madison Police Chief Mike Koval Wednesday because they are holding the city “hostage to our fears.”

    At the top of the most-wanted list are the city’s “most egregious offenders and gang members,” all of whom are currently wanted for various crimes or have broken their terms of probation, Koval said.

    The targets at the top of the list also are all African-American. Koval said he received calls Thursday from some people who told him his plan has racist overtones, particularly since less than 8 percent of the Madison population is African-American.

    “There are 40 to 80 people — principally men — who are flagrantly shooting and killing people and terrorizing an entire city. Tragically, eight of the 10 homicide (victims) this year are African-Americans and, tragically, African-Americans have been involved in all 10 homicides based on who has been charged or are suspects in these murders. That is the reality,” Soglin said.

    Getting completely off-topic, but important: the nation of Brazil is on the verge of collapse. 85% of all truck drivers in the country are on strike since this past Monday, complaining about the very high fuel tax. Since Wednesday there is no fuel left in any petrol station in the country, and food is starting to run out in supermarkets. There is an impending utter social and economic collapse looming. To make it worse, oil refinery workers have joined the strike.

    The government raised taxes on fuels 16 times over the past year as the only way to be able to pay salaries and pensions of public servants. The law prohibits the firing of most categories of public employees, and since the Central Bank strictly controls money supply for anti-inflationary reasons, printing money is not an option. They are facing a kind of Sophie's Choice, because if they do the trucker's biding, they won't be able to pay the nation's 6 million public servants, and they will cause massive civil unrest and overthrow the government; if they don't, the economy will collapse completely in less than a month and the country will descend to the level of Namibia.

    Brazil collapsing is not the same as Venezuela collapsing. Brazil is either the World's 6th or 7th largest economy in the World depending on how you measure GDP, and has a population of over 200 million people. The collapse of Brazil would have utterly devastating geopolitical consequences. How this would affect the U.S at this point besides the huge loss of money that American shareholders of Brazilian oil companies would suffer is unclear.

    There is another dimension – albeit a long one in coming- Brazil is held up as the model for post 2050 U.S. This is not looking good.

    'Anglo nationalist' is the wrong way of putting it but generally Protestants are more likely to use 'Ulster' than Catholics - all the political parties on the British side use the word as did most of the Loyalist paramilitaries. Catholics also say 'Ulster', but normally they do so in different contexts from Protestants. Actually, 'Northern Ireland' itself has always been more common with Protestants with many Catholics, particularly nationalists who don't recognise the legitimacy of the NI entity, saying 'North of Ireland' (or 'the Six Counties') instead. My impression though is that since the 1998 peace agreement Catholics are more willing to say 'Northern' as most, I think, see it as a more or less legitimate entity now.

    Brazil’s issues are from the right taking power and prosecuting Lula and Velma. Not very similar to Venezuela which suffered a gradual communist takeover that was careful to focus on purging the military of opponents.

    Also unlike Venezuela, Brazil has many internationally competitive industries.

    Stockton is about to award stipends of up to $1,000 a month to residents deemed most likely to shoot somebody. This program is called Advance Peace, and it's modeled after a crime reduction program in the Bay Area city of Richmond.

    The idea is that a small number of people are responsible for a large percentage of violence, and offering them an alternative path — with counseling and case management over an 18-month period, along with a stipend if they stay the course — can be a good investment all around.

    Obviously a topic of interest! Thanks.

    This is actually important.

    I can't understand all the hoopla over the North Korean situation, when this story has just occurred.

    So let me get this right. The British Government snatched him off the streets. Gave him an insanely quickie trial with a 13 month prison sentence, and one in which he isn't going to be allowed to communicate with the outside world.

    Apparently it was brought up at the "trial" that he stood a good chance of being killed by Muslims in prison (as has happened to others in the UK). And the casual respons was he knew what he was doing, and that would just be unfortunate of course.

    There has also been a protest or two over there. Apparently the police weren't expecting this, and you can see videos of them being noticeably flustered and actually kind of being pushed around (no police had full riot gear and shields though, nor an organized force).

    My take is this has the potential to be earthshaking. Bigger than Brexit even if you ask me. I could be wrong, it would be great to hear from any UK posters here.

    But as an outside observer this sure seems like the kind of casual arrogance that could topple a government or something. Of course what that means with the UK's system is still way murky to me.

    From the standpoint of anything important the Tories are the same as Labor. So I dunno.

    This is the trial record I’ve seen, in which he got a three month sentence, suspended for 18 months:

    The problem with a provocateur like Robinson is that it’s difficult to believe that he’s acting in good faith, or to know whether he can or should be trusted.

    a/c/t Gateway Pundit, he had a suspended sentence for a similar previous conviction, and that has been invoked due to the latest trial - so he IS in prison.

    Dreadfully sorry, Daniel, but ‘Protestant Ireland” is over 98% White and 89% of those were born ‘Protestant Ireland,’ with another 7% from the Irish Republic and Great Britain.

    In comparison, the Republic of Ireland is now more than 8% non-White (that was back in 2016) and more than 20% of its population was born elsewhere (i.e. India, Nigeria, etc.). In 2016 its birth-rate dropped below replacement level for the first time.

    Demography is destiny, and it seems Ireland has decided to abolish itself.

    It’s very true that only a small number of men are responsible for most of the crime. The best way to reduce a city’s crime statistics is to send them off for long prison sentences. It’s really noticeably in cities of less than half a million.

    No wonder Stockton has such a high crime rate. The black population is 12 percent. It’s exactly as it is in the country as a whole. 12 percent of the population causes 80 percent of the problems.

    The non black population is about half White half Hispanic. I wonder how a black mayor got elected? Maybe George Soros paid for the election. He’s targeting a lot of local elections In America

    If they have no income they would get monthly welfare for adults without children, probably $100-150 food stamps and $200 cash. That comes from San Joaquin County

    Will the city of Stockton’s $500 per month make them ineligible for the standard welfare benefit?

    The blacks are probably from the Black hell holes of Oakland Richmond and Pittsburg in the Bay Area.

    Your comment about “only a small number of men are responsible for most of the crime” reminded me of the following article from last summer. Apparently there are precious few black people in Madison, Wisconsin, but it’s a progressive city and the blacks are worshipped. Except that a few dozen of them, known and in violation of parole, but yet free because they are holy, are vexing the town by shooting it up and killing people. Finally the police chief comes up with a plan: arrest those guys. But the residents are not sure about the optics of that idea.

    http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/local/crime/madison-police-chief-plans-to-round-up-city-s-worst/article_435ac0a7-1b0b-5f81-a107-4b3d33c8bd18.html

    Madison police chief plans to round up city’s worst criminals

    A bold short-term plan to remove Madison’s most notorious criminals from the streets was announced by Madison Police Chief Mike Koval Wednesday because they are holding the city “hostage to our fears.”

    At the top of the most-wanted list are the city’s “most egregious offenders and gang members,” all of whom are currently wanted for various crimes or have broken their terms of probation, Koval said.

    The targets at the top of the list also are all African-American. Koval said he received calls Thursday from some people who told him his plan has racist overtones, particularly since less than 8 percent of the Madison population is African-American.

    “There are 40 to 80 people — principally men — who are flagrantly shooting and killing people and terrorizing an entire city. Tragically, eight of the 10 homicide (victims) this year are African-Americans and, tragically, African-Americans have been involved in all 10 homicides based on who has been charged or are suspects in these murders. That is the reality,” Soglin said.

    Which brand of whiskey is from the Protestant distillery in Catholic Ireland and which brand is from the Catholic distillery in Protestant Ireland?

    My dad knew a Catholic Irishman who married a Prod woman. To avoid a family assassination, they converted to Mormonism on the theory that that way both families would be equally upset and would at least give them a neutral space. It worked. They had six kids and were still married 55 years later.

    The no booze thing was kind of a problem though.

    Makes no sense. The world's 7th biggest economy doesn't rely on the production of fuel. Seen in the proper context, this crisis is nothing more than a local dispute between the truckers' union and the government.

    Petrobras, the state-owned oil company, last June introduced a policy of adjusting fuel prices to daily shifts in international oil markets. This at first went unnoticed by truckers because of low oil prices at the time.

    But with recent rises in oil prices and emerging market currency turmoil caused by Argentina and rising US interest rates, Brent crude has since risen 57 per cent while the Brazilian real had depreciated 12 per cent since last June.

    Which brand of whiskey is from the Protestant distillery in Catholic Ireland and which brand is from the Catholic distillery in Protestant Ireland?

    It is important to understand that the Protestant/Catholic distinction among Irish distilleries has nothing to do with sectarian OWNERSHIP.

    Both the Bushmills distillery (in continuous operation since 1608!) and the Jameson distillery were founded by Irish Protestants. Yet, the latter has Catholic, or rather “Nationalist”, identity in IRA bars in the US, Canada, etc.

    This is because the TRADE UNION at Jameson’s is Catholic (practically if not legally), while the Bushmill’s (County Antrim, in the north) trade union is Protestant.

    Because distillery jobs pay higher than prevailing wages, there are always more job applicants than hires. So, to get a job at either the Bushmills or Jameson’s distillery, you had better to be some current employees’ son, brother, or , at least ,nephew.

    Hence, Jameson is a “Catholic” whiskey (note spelling) despite having been founded by a member (John Jameson) of the Church of Ireland (Episcopalian in American terms). Also, no one thinks of Guinness beer as “Protestant” despite the fact that founder Arthur Guinness was also a Protestant. That is because the trade union there prefers to hire Catholics. Well, recently, anyway.

    Indeed, for a long time, both “Protestant” Bushmills and “Catholic” Guinness were owned by the same international conglomerate, Diageo.

    So, these distinctions are rather arbitrary.

    Nevertheless, be careful about ordering Bushmills in certain bars on the West side of Manhattan or Southie in Boston. You just might get a knuckle sandwich, instead.

    How this would affect the U.S at this point besides the huge loss of money that American shareholders of Brazilian oil companies would suffer is unclear.

    First off, the U.S. government will open the door to 2.7 million Brazilian immigrants. Second, it will distribute them in the few remaining white-majority towns in the United States. Third, the federal bureaucracy will institute affirmative action programs for the "underserved" Brazilian-American population.

    Ulster and Northern Ireland are not the same thing.

    Ireland consists of four provinces: Leinster, Munster, Ulster, and Connaught. Each province consists of a number of counties.

    The province of Ulster consists of nine counties: six of them are in Northern Ireland, and three are in the Republic of Ireland. Confusingly, the northernmost county in Ireland (Donegal) is part of the ROI, and not part of NI.

    Getting completely off-topic, but important: the nation of Brazil is on the verge of collapse. 85% of all truck drivers in the country are on strike since this past Monday, complaining about the very high fuel tax. Since Wednesday there is no fuel left in any petrol station in the country, and food is starting to run out in supermarkets. There is an impending utter social and economic collapse looming. To make it worse, oil refinery workers have joined the strike.

    The government raised taxes on fuels 16 times over the past year as the only way to be able to pay salaries and pensions of public servants. The law prohibits the firing of most categories of public employees, and since the Central Bank strictly controls money supply for anti-inflationary reasons, printing money is not an option. They are facing a kind of Sophie's Choice, because if they do the trucker's biding, they won't be able to pay the nation's 6 million public servants, and they will cause massive civil unrest and overthrow the government; if they don't, the economy will collapse completely in less than a month and the country will descend to the level of Namibia.

    Brazil collapsing is not the same as Venezuela collapsing. Brazil is either the World's 6th or 7th largest economy in the World depending on how you measure GDP, and has a population of over 200 million people. The collapse of Brazil would have utterly devastating geopolitical consequences. How this would affect the U.S at this point besides the huge loss of money that American shareholders of Brazilian oil companies would suffer is unclear.

    Bushmills has two distinctions (one dubious, take your pick): perhaps being the world's oldest operating whiskey distillery and never hiring a Roman Catholic. Although in recent years it has been part of different world-wide conglomerates.

    Hiring at Bushmills is decided by the trade union. Because of the relatively generous wages, Bushmills distillery jobs are not easy to get. One had better be the son, younger brother, or nephew of a current union member to get hired.

    It does make sense. 80% of all transport of goods in that country is done by truck. With trucks on strikes, goods cannot reach retailers from industry. That includes indispensable things like food and clothes. With trucks on strike, fuel does not get delivered to petrol stations. With no fuel on petrol stations, people cannot use their cars. If they can't use their cars, it becomes much harder or impossible to go to work. If people can't go to work, then all the goods and services they would produce at work won't get produced. They also won't be able to go to the mall, or restaurants, or whatever and all those services suffer. Services that depend on fuel like delivery, taxi, uber, etc, all cannot be done. See, it's all interconnected. The *entire* economy collapses.

    You gonna civilize your way through that? Nonviolent resistance only works if you have a very peculiar kind of aggressor, a Western European one frankly.

    So the question is, after getting punched, the age old one: What are you going to do about it? If nothing, he is just going to keep on hitting you.

    This is the trial record I've seen, in which he got a three month sentence, suspended for 18 months:

    https://www.judiciary.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/coc-yaxley-lennon-20170522.pdf

    The problem with a provocateur like Robinson is that it's difficult to believe that he's acting in good faith, or to know whether he can or should be trusted.

    a/c/t Gateway Pundit, he had a suspended sentence for a similar previous conviction, and that has been invoked due to the latest trial – so he IS in prison.

    Yes, I think I'm up to speed now. That conviction, though, was for three months, so I'm assuming the extra 10 months, as reported, was simply extra punishment added on.

    Makes no sense. The world's 7th biggest economy doesn't rely on the production of fuel. Seen in the proper context, this crisis is nothing more than a local dispute between the truckers' union and the government.

    Petrobras, the state-owned oil company, last June introduced a policy of adjusting fuel prices to daily shifts in international oil markets. This at first went unnoticed by truckers because of low oil prices at the time.

    But with recent rises in oil prices and emerging market currency turmoil caused by Argentina and rising US interest rates, Brent crude has since risen 57 per cent while the Brazilian real had depreciated 12 per cent since last June.

     

    It does make sense. 80% of all transport of goods in that country is done by truck. With trucks on strikes, goods cannot reach retailers from industry. That includes indispensable things like food and clothes. With trucks on strike, fuel does not get delivered to petrol stations. With no fuel on petrol stations, people cannot use their cars. If they can’t use their cars, it becomes much harder or impossible to go to work. If people can’t go to work, then all the goods and services they would produce at work won’t get produced. They also won’t be able to go to the mall, or restaurants, or whatever and all those services suffer. Services that depend on fuel like delivery, taxi, uber, etc, all cannot be done. See, it’s all interconnected. The *entire* economy collapses.

    The province of Ulster consists of nine counties: six of them are in Northern Ireland, and three are in the Republic of Ireland.
     
    And yet, very few residents of Donegal, Cavan, or Monahan describe themselves as "Ulstermen."

    Completely wrong, have you ever been to the three counties?
    Every single man would and do (including myself, all my family and every local who lives here) consider and call themselves Ulstermen. Why wouldn’t we, my family has lived in Ulster long before there were protestants in Ireland or anywhere else.

    Ulster is far older than NI and has its own identity, primarily renforced in modern times by the GAA’s Ulster championship.
    Rugby teams are also provincially based with a Ulster team.

    You'd best save the rhetorical flourishes, because on me, they're wasted.

    I realise now that the court account I linked to - which I'd seen on Wikileaks' Twitter account - referred to a similar case last year in Canterbury. I had read the whole thing but missed the date at the beginning! Sorry for that.

    But, if anything, this makes Robinson's current behaviour harder to understand or sympathise with. What purpose does it serve? Frankly, I do not know whether his actions could really be said to constitute a threat to the ongoing grooming cases, but why even take that risk? Once the trials are over, he can say what he likes about them. The association between Muslims and paedophile gangs is so well established in the public consciousness that Lennon's contributions are a drop in the ocean.

    As I said, I don't trust Robinson, because I don't know what his game is.

    The former leader of the English Defence League, Tommy Robinson, has apologised for causing fear among British Muslims and for issuing bigoted, anti-Islamic statements during his time with the group.

    In an interview with the Guardian, Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, said he was sorry for helping to create a culture of "us and them" and for frightening the UK Islamic community.

    Pressed as to whether he now believed it was wrong to blame "every single Muslim" for "getting away" with the 7 July bombings, and for calling Islam a fascist and violent religion, he held up his hands and said: "I'm sorry, I'm sorry."

    I’d say the church in Ireland is about as dead as a church can be. I believe the pope is to visit in August. It will be interesting to compare and contrast his reception to that given to John Paul II in 1979.

    Your comment about "only a small number of men are responsible for most of the crime" reminded me of the following article from last summer. Apparently there are precious few black people in Madison, Wisconsin, but it's a progressive city and the blacks are worshipped. Except that a few dozen of them, known and in violation of parole, but yet free because they are holy, are vexing the town by shooting it up and killing people. Finally the police chief comes up with a plan: arrest those guys. But the residents are not sure about the optics of that idea.

    http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/local/crime/madison-police-chief-plans-to-round-up-city-s-worst/article_435ac0a7-1b0b-5f81-a107-4b3d33c8bd18.html

    Madison police chief plans to round up city's worst criminals

    A bold short-term plan to remove Madison’s most notorious criminals from the streets was announced by Madison Police Chief Mike Koval Wednesday because they are holding the city “hostage to our fears.”

    At the top of the most-wanted list are the city’s “most egregious offenders and gang members,” all of whom are currently wanted for various crimes or have broken their terms of probation, Koval said.

    The targets at the top of the list also are all African-American. Koval said he received calls Thursday from some people who told him his plan has racist overtones, particularly since less than 8 percent of the Madison population is African-American.

    “There are 40 to 80 people — principally men — who are flagrantly shooting and killing people and terrorizing an entire city. Tragically, eight of the 10 homicide (victims) this year are African-Americans and, tragically, African-Americans have been involved in all 10 homicides based on who has been charged or are suspects in these murders. That is the reality,” Soglin said.

     

    “Tragically, eight of the 10 homicide victims this year are African-Americans”

    Fortunately, two of the victims were not African-Americans. Maybe they were white, even!

    Let’s hope that it evens out next year!

    On one episode of “What’s My Line?” Peggy Cass said her Dad was fond of Bushmills. Apparently drank whiskey distilled at a distillery where he coudn’t work. (That wasn’t in any way even hinted at.)

    Steve,

    With regard to sectarian Irish whiskeys, as far as I know there is neither a Protestant distillery in Catholic Ireland nor a Catholic distillery in Protestant Ireland (although as already noted there is a Protestant distillery in Protestant Ireland, namely Bushmills in Northern Ireland).

    All the major Irish whiskeys except Bushmills are produced by Irish Distillers in the East Cork town of Midleton in the Irish Republic. Incidentally the Midleton brand is the best Irish whiskey. But the whole shebang is owned by various non-Irish conglomerates.
