Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.
He was in New York commenting on people in New York (the people hanging out the windows could have been from Texas for all he knew). He needs to live in Ireland for an extended time, or visit, before he can state facts about truely Irish people. Also, maybe he should leave the joking to real comedians, not all people can tell a joke. *He's from up North, I'm from down South - We southerners talk funny, you know*.
I might have erred in where I placed my reply. I was not referring to Mayor Bloomberg at all but an initial posting which had nothing useful to say really, only the usual mindless single word screed about "liberal extremists (they also known to insert the word "socialist" interchangeably)."
As I commented earlier, these word labels "liberal" or "socialist" are all they can grasp (sometimes they even get the spelling spot-on), repeating the sound bytes of their right-wing handlers who program their one word comments as would the ventriloquist to his dummy. Issues, a bit more "messy" intellectually, as opposed to spewing mere labels, sadly fall outside their brief and comprehension. If those of us with our frontal lobes in full vigor continue to speak slowly, and in mono-syllabic words only to them, perhaps we can hope they proceed to the next level of maturity.
