Profile for carl marks

A man of expensive tastes and little money. Hates. Holland (nice people but too flat) zealots, tribal marchers (green or orange) being called Groucho (funny the first 10 times), water in whisky, petrol heads, those who can’t see the elephant, Tories ,new labour, fascists, flags up lampposts, street preachers and those who hand out tracts (litter louts for Jesus) Loves Mountains, tents snow Jameson’s whisky and hot chocolate (put them all together and I’m in paradise) Guinness, good books, music. I’m a republican but not a shiner left of centre but mellowing in my old age. If you ask me for advice I’ll tell you, Don’t take sleeping tablets and laxatives at the same time

    Seriously redstar got a yellow for calling a old bigot a old bigot, so the rule is that its ok to hand out sectarian abuse to Nationalists on slugger in place of debate, but you’re not allowed to call a bigot a bigot, well it your game your rules.
    Won’t be long till slugger starts competing with the Protestant Coalition for its market share, so keep your black card mick, I’ll find a site that allows debate and doesn’t protect self-righteous mealy mouthed old bigots.
    Bye Mick and thanks for all the fish

    A question that no one seems to be asking is” how did this idiot get to the top ranks of any group” I’m serious let’s look at what could be described as a pattern,
    Jamie, after 5 minutes of listening to Jamie no one with any sense would put him in charge of a broom.
    Willie F, should anybody listen to a man who can’t even tell the colours of his enemy’s flag?
    George Chittick, barely literate and has confused Co. Down with Sudetenland.
    And we all know that a quick trawl of the history of loyalist leaders will show many more examples,
    How do these people get positions of leadership, are they elected? What are the criteria?
    Obviously O or A levels aren’t needed, common sense or political savvy seen not to be required.
    Perhaps a member of the OO could tell us how this Buffoon (not the first one) got to be a ranker?
    Maybe a flegger could explain WTF made them listen to Jamie and could anybody tell why anybody would pay any attention to Willie for any reason at all?
    David Irvine was a man who could think beyond the next parade and I believe that the self-destructive fiasco that was loyalists reaction to designated days would at least been tempered if there was a figure of David Irvine’s ability leading loyalism.

    I thought it was advanced level weird and a very strange type of paranoia, Did you just bring this up to point out how daft that wee man is or do you have a different opinion?

    The Irish language is harmless.

    But did anyone pick up on Chittick’s reference to the Sudetenland and Hitler?

    I think we all did, what’s your point?

    I know the Shinners tried to make Irish political with the every words a bullet line, and to a degree they succeeded, but was there not a strong anti-Irish language trend already among unionists in NI which allowed the Provo’s to use this tactic,
    I think blaming the anti-Irish sentiments of many unionist completely on the shinners is just another version of “the big boys made me do it” anti-Irish sentiments (crossing language, people, sport, art) all existed in Northern Ireland long before the first Provo fired a shot, The Shinners did exploit this and most certainly by their actions increased both the politicising of Irish and entrenched the already existing Anti Irish attitude of many unionists.

    Rising divorce, another way of looking at this people are no longer trapped in a relationship which in the cases of many women meant rape, beatings and economic slavery surely that’s a good thing.
    Increase in STDs umm maybe your right but I would like to see stats and proof that it caused by the liberalism of homosexuality.
    Abortion again please supply figures,
    Sex commodified, what I think you mean here is women having more control over their sexual activity, sex has always been commodified (is that a real word) in the old morality if a women wasn’t a virgin and not married she was a slut, thank god that has changed.
    And that not forget that the good old days had a lot of things about its morality which was hardly moral, if you get what I mean.
