#556814 White Privilege

Posted by Hunterian on 20 September 2017 - 12:00 PM

For those that agree with white privilege I recommend that you have a look at Hillbilly Elegy by JD Vance.


The guy that wrote it is in his late 30's and is really just recounting his experiences brought up by Mamaw and Papaw in Appalachian Kentucky.  The book is excellent in that it does not politicise but it does show how this particular part of white America has been marginalised and written off as 'white trash'.  These are exactly the kind of people that Trump speaks to.


White trash is every bit as racist and expression but has been accepted up to this point so who speaks up for them, perhaps they are hoping that Trump will in all of these places as well as the rust belt.


White privilege is a label like any other and in fact whilst white people have committed horrible acts all races and creeds have for their own kind as well as others so I think that the term is bullshit!

Bump da bump......


Wayne Rooney was arrested last night....drink driving.

I hope those decrying GMS' exploits get right into this.  Rooney is a lavishly paid star and even with all of that, if this is true, he still decides to get behind the wheel of a car with a drink.


It's not justifiable for anybody but these so called 'role models' are a joke.  Also see famous tax avoiders Ronaldo and Messi as well as serial adulterers like Giggs.  Now GMS looks like an angel.

Great win for the Buddies, let's hope they can go on a run

One game at a time as the tired old cliche goes

Good win mate.

After my neighbours suggestion that we go to the opening game we're going to try to manage a home game a month. Not easy with family commitments etc but you can't beat a 3pm kick off!

With all this said I was listening to a Radio Scotland reporter talking about the huge distance County had to travel from Motherwell yesterday, for the record that's around 180 miles.

Try telling that to a Newcastle fan travelling to Swansea or Bournemouth this season. Still this Big Country mentality but it's really quite a small one.

Let's look, for comparison, at Kenny Miller in 2014/15 - 9 goals in 43 games playing in the Scottish Championship... Is Stevie May really that much of a dud? Yes he had an almost career ending injury that put him out from Dec 2015 - Feb 2017, but now he's back fit and I think he could do the business back in the Scotland where he last scored 27 in 49 games in 2013/14.

I agree with you Panda, that's good business and if it's the same Stevie May that was banging goals in for St.Johnstone then he could do well.

Natalia Sikorska.....very hot but also a shoplifter. Judge gave her a conditional discharge saying she had 'considerable talents'...Ahem.
I wonder if these are the talents the judge spoke of.

She's guilty of a pair of crimes!

Correction Hairy, a smart looking tablecloth or dish towel.

Is the Fort that bad H ? The wife and I used to go there for years....a caravan up in Glen Nevis caravan park. It used to be a nice wee town. I used to drink in the Volunteer Arms in the High Street as it was also handy for the bookies at the top of the Square.

It's OK but is years behind Inverness, which really is saying something. Doesn't help that it's the wettest place in Britain.

I've been in the Volunteer Arms as well.

It struck Fort William and caused £1M worth of improvements.

#552736 You can only go to one concert

Posted by Hunterian on 02 August 2017 - 02:32 PM

Fucking Amy Winehouse? Seriously???
For me it would be Pink Floyd or Queen so from that list it has to be Freddie Mercury as he was the ultimate showman.
I saved a wee bit extra money to take Mrs Bickles to London for the weekend to see Roger Waters at the O2. My mate went and Dave Gilmour guest with him that concert. Something that will probably never happen again. 
Mrs Bickles phoned me while i was out working to tell me she had used the extra money i had saved to book EuroDisney!!!!!! <_<

I saw Pink Floyd on the Division Bell tour.

#552620 Any strange happenings (not ghosts) ever occurred in your house?

Don't be daft....

It was a question, not a statement. That question mark at the end was the clue.

It's a deflection when you feel you're losing an argument

#551909 Who is Charlie Gard, what is the disease he suffers from and what will the ju...

Posted by Hunterian on 24 July 2017 - 06:16 AM

Are the courts and the hospital correct in denying the parents wishes?

I've read a wee bit of this and the disease is so convoluted to say.

The parents are being told by almost every physician that any attempts at surgery to prolong life are futile and may cause severe pain for the boy.
Some US based Doctor thinks he can do this but that it will cost serious money. His methods are extremely experimental and may only have been tested on lab mice.

The courts are not acting for the parents but rather for the boy's best wishes.

I feel for the parents but who are they trying to keep the wee guy struggling through life for?
