Commonly, haiku is a form of poetry which uses 17 syllables over three lines.
The first line has 5 syllables.
The second has 7
The third has 5
The logic being that because it is necessary to reflect a little more deeply than usual before we can express ourselves in this heavily restricted manner
the resultant output tends to be more creative in it's use of language, more dense and profound conceptually, and more aesthetically pleasing as a result.
Well that's the theory anyway. I'm sure...
Ghislaine Maxwell is ARRESTED by the FBI
No doubt she'll get off.
Nobody in elite or royal circles wants her spilling her guts!!
Unless it's all over the pavement before she has an opportunity to squeal, that is!! :ROFLMAO:
We have been immersed in propaganda about Man made or Anthropogenic Climate Change ever since that asshole Al Gore
conned us all with his famous hockey stick graph and made millions as a result from his stupid film "an inconvenient truth"
This propaganda about AGW/ACC has been especially targetted at children in schools.
Now that generation have come of age and are making their views felt politically.
By now we've all heard the media crowing about the new political "green wave" across...
Forget Trump. While his reign has certainly been a colourful distraction, he's been quite the disappointment and hasn't really come through at all
regarding his many election promises of ending foreign interventions and improving relations with Russia.
Here is the woman that both democrats and republicans have a bipartisan fear of getting near the reins of power
Because if she does, It seems likely that the ugly and murderous weapons gravy train that corrupts them all
not to mention the...

Basically no messing tolerated.
Trolls etc will be threadbanned immediately
in order to maintain thread quality...
Lads This is a gem
RTE commentators were busy seeing who could stick their tongues furthest up the jaxie of the democratic party
Then suddenly this guy went right off the reservation. RTE NPCs nearly shat themselves. :LOL:
"There you have it, two frauds just got sworn in, one is a bona fide criminal
complicit in violation of multiple intelligence oversight and directives"
Funniest thing ever! Someone is getting fired this evening !! :ROFLMAO:
Grab the video on your phones before...
This could be interesting tool in the fight against cancer if what they are claiming is actually true and it all pans out
He has just a few days left but.......
It looks like Democrats are trying to impeach Trump...AGAIN.
This might seem pointless. However if successful, it will both cement the framing of his legacy
and will prevent him ever holding office in US politics again. (presumably the strategy)
Bye bye 2024!
They can still impeach him after he leaves. Looks like that is what will happen.
Which would make him the first president ever to be put under impeachment procedures TWICE...
Journalist Julian Assange has finished his sentence for skipping bail
yet is still being kept in prison awaiting an extradition order to the US.
The west lectures China on it's human rights yet in the case of Julian Assange we have indefinite detention without charge.
First in the embassy for 7 years. Then again after his sentence on a minor charge has been completed in a british prison...
There are a lot of posts on the site about Antifa, their funding, structure, membership, behaviour and activities.
I thought a thread specifically dedicated to Antifa might be useful as a catch all for this stuff
so if anyone asks you about them you could direct them to this thread.
Please post any research, links and articles about Antifa or news about their activities here
with particular emphasis on their Irish incarnation of course!
It's always been high on the wishlists of the banksters and financial terrorists to lobby our governments to force all the serfs to use cashless payments.
What his means in essence is that we have no choice but to keep our money in a bank account in order to make card payments for basic necessities, where it can easily be stolen gradually from you through "negative interest" on your bank balance.
This method of legal robbery from citizens by banks is often referred to negative interest rate...
In other words the father of the "new left" and "identity politics"
worked for the OSS / CIA on propaganda against communism in the Soviet Union
It's there in black and white folks!
Still think what you're seeing around you today is being engineered by "commies"?
Or is it just the poisonous fruit of good old American capitalist pro corporate neoliberal think tanks?
I've been moderating here as "GodsDog" for a few years now, doing my best to help keep the conversation flowing
and stopping you lot from tearing each others throats out when things heated up etc.
I've done my best but it hasn't always been perfect I admit.
However of late it's been very hard to actually do my job here on account of certain personal and spiteful vendettas on the part of two other mods you will all know and I will refer to here as
A thread to discuss the various theories on the possible origins of the virus.
Nobody knows for sure exactly what happened here so there is room for some speculation. Both scientific and political.
The official story is that it jumped from a bat coronavirus reservoir animal (a Bat) to an as yet unconfirmed secondary vector animal, possibly a reptile such as a snake or a pangolin, and from there to humans complete with remarkably good human to human transmission characteristics.
A thread to document and discuss the various events and manoeuvres
between China and the US.
China and the US are currently locked in a struggle for dominance.
As the saying goes "if the US sneezes the world catches a cold"
now add to that "if China catches coronavirus then the world requires PPE"
Whatever your views on communism / capitalism etc,
it's quite clear that whatever these two get up to it affects everyone on the planet.
Post relevant links and discuss here.
A general catch all thread
for discussion of countries being sanctioned,
economically and otherwise.
There is far too much of this sort of economic bullying of weaker nations quietly going on in the background of international politics
and our shitstream media have no real interest in covering it too much as they themselves, more often than not,
are in ideological agreement with the "reasons" behind it.
This thread is intended to gather together some more information about all of these...
Haven't they read "Lord of the flies"? :rolleyes:
poor rational Piggy dies.
The violent superstitious mob are manipulated into vicious acts by a charismatic sociopath.
The good person who does nothing is only saved from death by external actors ending the "experiment"!
Trump must be "the beast" I guess! :ROFLMAO:
Lets see how this re enactment pan's out...
You think Covid-19 is bad?
this could kill 300,000 per day.
Take two overpopulated countries that hate each other.
mix in a toxic territorial conflict in Kashmir.
Add nuclear weapons.
Stir in swarms of 80 million locusts that can eat as much food as 3 million people per day
What do you get?
Interesting times, that's what!!
300,000 brown "unpeople" per day there may die from starvation.
If this is indeed a pandemic then surely poorer people on the dole etc
should not be forced to go into queues in post offices every single week risking coronavirus infection
just to sign their name purely out of some Mary Hanafin inspired bureaucratic exercise in spite.
These are people in society least able to afford to deal with the costs of self isolation, hand gels, masks, etc etc
and the ones least likely to have private medical insurance etc
The Department should move all welfare...
