    So Joe Biden is now the oldest dude alive as well??? Claiming he was on the senate judiciary committee 150 years ago... His "Bigly" moment for sure.🤣🤣 🤣 https://twitter.com/i/status/1418296861421670400

    Great town hall meeting too.With 450 people attending out of the totally " 81million voters".who voted for him.🤣

    And we wonder why Nancy Pelosi was getting her knickers in a twist about getting the 25th sorted out?It wasn't about getting rid of Trump,it was for when ol Joe finally pees himself on stage in front of the American public and the world.

    The link you posted shows President Biden has an approval rating average of 55% since he took over the most powerful position in the world.

    What is ye Germans say again? Oh yeah, "He who digs a pit for someone else falls into it themselves".

    And boy oh boy did you fall into your own slurry pit with the post above.

    It's a habit of yours to post links that contradict the point you're trying to make, interesting and rather amusing carry on.

    Salt was an example from the film. They are already taxing sugar so it's not beyond the realms of possibility.

    Keep trying there Rose....The point was between the last 6months of his office, which was what your much loved CNN report was spouting.Not his overall rating....Do try and cherry-pick your[Mis] information a bit better next time?🤡

    A bit of banter from President Biden and well timed with the distressing reports coming from the inquiry into the Capitol Hill debacle that Trump started.

    Experimental vaccines seem to reduce the effect of COVID on the body. I’ve seen the effects of polio first hand on people in 2021 because parents refuse to vaccinate their children. Trust me, a lifetime of pain for their children is a sentence in itself for them.


    i don’t think red meat or salt will be banned, vaccine passes for dining not ideal but short term necessity.


    biden, steady hand so far, trump had signaled pull out for Iraq and Afghanistan republicans should be happy he’s continuing their policy. (It’s going to be a **** sandwich)

    This new set up is still cr#p on boards

    No vaccine is a magical cure or path to eradication, we have all sort of vaccines, but have only 100% eradicated 1 or 2 diseases. But that's not really a reason to not have developed a vaccine.

    That measles, we've been doing MMR shots for decades, measles still exists in parts of the world. The fact it hasn't been eradicated is a pretty silly reason to not get an MMR vaccine. Natural immunity could count towards heard immunity, but we've no idea how it stacks up to different strains. When you catch the flu, to are in future immune to that strain of flu. You can still catch other flus.

    I've mentioned before that I don't agree with vaccine exclusion to pubs and dining. Should be all or nothing. But I do get it for travel, it's not an uncommon requirement to have shots for certain parts of the world. At the same time should have bodily autonomy. Nobody should be forced to take medicine or any drug against their will. Some people are just anti-vax regardless, would never take any optional medicine. Those people are a tiny minority. I'd hope less than 1%. The issue is that a much bigger present of people believe in free will. The vast majority who are anti-covid vax are simply reacting to being told what to do by the government. I get that logic, if people are clear about why they feel that way that's fine. I really question whether many people actually believe the stories they come out with. It's a really sad reflection of society tbh.

    Somebody who point black refuses to believe any thing in relation the science and facts of covid. The government is trying to control us. (Ignoring the fact that it's multiple governments, multiple governments, opposing parties, and change of control). But a random, unidentified whistle blower, from the CIA/Hospital/Microsoft copy and pasted onto facebook and the same people are sharing these "facts". Just baffling.

    An interesting observation somebody made the other day, what that 15 years ago, people where worried about, and ranting about Muslims being radicalized on the internet. Now, especially in the last 2 years, the same people are being radicalized on the internet. We may get past covid soon, or at some point. The damage could be longer lasting.

    "The government is trying to control us" crowd are the same people who don't vote because they see no point in it because "they're all the same and only in it for themselves". They fail to see the irony of their stance which is a good indication of how stupid they really are.

    The same people never have anything good to say about or have any respect for the people who actually run the country and are the first to cry wolf about any change that is proposed, their pathetic efforts to try and promote a state of siege mentality are funny yet sad at the same time.

    How anyone that can tie their own shoelaces could seriously believe that Covid 19 is a "scamdemic" is very worrying.

    I've asked a few of the conspiracy nuts where they think the idea for the scam started, why it was started and how many people are in on it? They have various ridiculous theories but it's the third question that always catches them.

    The scamdemic believers have created such a sense of paranoia and defensiveness amongst themselves that they are devoid of empathy, incapable of rational discussion and I would suspect thinking as well, as having constant negative feelings isn't good for ones health.

    One thing I have noticed a lot of scamdemic believers have in common is they are long term unemployed and intent on keeping it that way no matter what. They've been coasting along nice and happy riding the system all these years and now Covid 19 has thrown a curve ball at them and they have to start thinking about will my payments be cut because of all the other people who have been paid more than me to stop working and are no longer actually paying the tax that used to sponsor my free weekly money.

    It's tough times for the scamdemic crew and only going to get tougher when the reality of the situation we are in and the long term repercussions it will have finally sinks in. No doubt when they are encouraged to upskill and seek employment a lot of them will try and use the pandemic as a reason not to.

    Man, they are serious allegations to make on a public forum. Saying joe Biden is a paedophile on a public forum. I’d seriously consider deleting that if I were you. Risky business with libel laws.

    Joe Biden is a PADEO.He gropes kiddies and women's titties... His Son is a crack head who has been a bagman for his corrupt father with the Chinese and Russians...SUE ME and lets have it aLL out in a court of law. Someplace... . Be the dumbest lawsuit ever taken..A POTUS seeing a nobody for an internet comment,and having to then defend his documented actions on film .Be a laugh

    I’ve no skin in that game. I just think your comments may be libelous. I’ve no interest in suing anyone for what they say about things that don’t affect me. Just they seem a bit far removed from reality. No mainstream media has whistle blown on this. Think you’ve gone down the rabbit hole a bit on Biden versus trump

    Is there no limit to the lows you will stoop to?

    I called you out on it before when you called some lady politician you don't agree with a whore.

    I don’t know the ins and outs of what you’re alleging grizzly. But libellous comments put boards and it’s users at risk is all I am saying. Just be sure you’re 110% right.

    "May be libellous" ....Where?In what jurisdiction? In the US...Hardly.As I am posting under 1st amendment rights its a non-starter. Ireland, maybe,but go ahead and initiate proceedings,and that will require subpoenas of witnesses, and can you see the POTUS defending "his good name " in the Irish high court in person? As he says himself "Cmon man!"

    A bit far removed from reality? Would you like this to be done to your daughter or wife??? I don't care who you are commoner or President of the USA but if you touched my wife or daughter like that...You'd be on the floor picking up your teeth!😡https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_H5NJZMDumY

    Let's not forget he also has a sex assault charge against him as well..Seems to be a thing with US presidents these days.Google Tara Reade sexual assault. So hardly an innocent inoffensive man,and from public source materials and media, one could happily draw a conclusion about his personality and predilections.

    The one thing that really beats me here about all this Biden support in this thread by supposedly pro-gun ownership people...HOW do you square this support of this man who has built a political career on being vehemently ANTI GUN ownership? And would just as happily see you disarmed in Ireland as people in the USA?

    Just really curious about how you figure this out?

    MODERATOR WARNING


    That is enough, from EVERYONE. Between the derogatory comments, backseat modding, trolling, and general low tone of the last dozen or so posts, it has stretched the limits of the "Off Topic" nature of the thread.


    Move on to a new topic or face a thread ban.


    First and only warning.

    Yea it’s a pain in the hole. I’ll stick it out here (Shooting) as it’s niche but my interest is waning otherwise.

    Yeah, bit of a pain but some good changes made. Hold out, maybe more good changes to come, hopefully.

    Like, being able to delete your PM (in and Out), being able to see who's (members/guests) on Shooting section, etc...



  • #2


    And photos now upload, after posting to a thread the 'Back' button goes to the thread and not the input page.

    I would like to see on the main Shooting page 'New' if a new comment has been posted on the 'Hunting, For Sale, and Target Shooting' pages.

    Can't figure out how to selectively cut bits out for quotes.Its either the entire previous post or nothing when you quote.

    Nice that it links now to articles in their entirety...So did they get this previous copyright problem sorted out ?

    The "back" button, will always bring you back to the last page you were on and with the new site that means losing any unsaved progress.


    As for "New" posts, that is there already. On the main shooting page it'll list threads with new replies with a "NEW" icon beside the thread. It'll also have a closed envelope icon beside it to indicate unread posts.

    Same with the main page where it show hunting, for sale, and target forum. It'll show these as having unopened envelopes beside the forum name as circled below as well as the date (for now) of the last post on the right. When you click onto the sub forum it'll list threads with new posts as above, with NEW besdie the thread and unopened envelope icons beside the thread.


    These might become more obvious as the site progresses and the suggestion for "Today" as with the old forum, has be made so people don't have to keep checking dates for new posts/replies.

    The multi quote is there, but as you said its the entire quote. There is no function, yet, to select only the bits you wish to quote from the quote and because of the new format of the site the old [quote] insert text [/quote] does not work anymore. However there is a work around or more accurately a new way to do it.


    You can tag the person (and they'll get a notficication they've been tagged) by typing the "at" symbol (@) and their username then selecting it from the drop down menu that appears. This gets their attention. Then stick a line of what they said, that you wish to quote, into quotation marks. To get the quotation marks simply click on the icon outside, to the left, of the dialogue box that follows the line you are typing and a menu appear. Select the quotation mark symbol, then the "quote" and you get this:
