The Irish Pub

The Irish Pub is a eulogy to the greatest institution in Irish society, the pub or more specifically the traditional Irish publicans who run them. The characters in this exceptionally endearing film all run and own pubs that have been in their families for generations and it is through their warmth, wit and wisdom that we gain an insight into the heart and soul of The Irish Pub.

Directed by: Alex Fegan
Starring: Liam Aherne, Willie Aherne, Bobby Blackwell

"Itís like a safety valve for the population of Ireland," Keane says. "We probably have less psychologists than any other country in the world. But thereís probably no country in the world who needs them more." - The Washington Post

"The Irish Pub" plays like a portfolio of lovely postcards, with splendidly photographed pictures of quaint buildings, cobbled streets, breathtaking landscapes, and smiling faces as hollowed and worn as the centuries-old stone floors of the title taverns. - The Boston Globe

Repugs may lose the WH, Senate and House, but they have 6-3 at the Supreme Court, and they will

use it to strike down everything/as much of what a Biden Administration tries to enact. They will also have a Trump sitting on the sidelines like a protection racket hoodlum, forcing them to enact revenge for his 2020 humiliation ("It would be a shame if something happened that turn my followers away from you" ) .

So what are the options ?

1 ) Hope that the Republicans will realise the error of their ways, and rush to re-embrace "Norms", and not take advantage of getting a big SC majority after planning to do so for the 40 years ?

2 ) Let the SC be damned and enact all the required laws, daring the SC to strike them down ?

3 ) Increase the SC by adding 4 new Justices, giving a 7-6 majority ?

4 ) Fundamentally reform the SC by increasing the number to 19 or 21 creating 3 Justice panels to hear cases (perhaps some specializing in areas, with specialist courts), and picked at random, but giving a 15-6 liberal majority.

Are there other options ?

What would be your preference ?
