About Me

Still an ardent Irish-American Catholic damnYankee Yellow Dog Democrat socialist after all these years. (cue Simon music) Army brat and wife for many years, now have been on the loose far longer than I was married. After my two red chows died, I took in a mini-beagle cross that I named Molly Maguire, thinking she might need a good Irish name like my original real one. Later she got a baby sister, a smooth-coat JRT I named Brigid after the greatest of the ancient Celtic goddesses. My great-grandfather and his son fought for Michael Collins and barely made it out of Ireland one step ahead of John Bull. They slipped over to Wales for new identities and then forward to the States for a fresh start. That makes me second generation of illegal but certainly justified immigrants. There are precious few people to whose defense I fly immediately, but the list includes Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama even when I disagree with him - it happens! - and living Irish patriots Gerry Adams and Martin \\\'Mind Your Kneecaps\\\' McGuiness. I pray earnestly for a united and free Ireland rescued from all official British occupation, with every square inch of alleged \\\'ancestral lands\\\' now held immorally and illegally by the invaders returned to the rightful owners. Irish-only rule for Ireland. No foreign masters anymore! I find it passing strange when Brits chide ME about \'interfering\' in Irish politics!

You're right about some people

But not all of us.

Yellow Dogs never sleep, neither do we slumber. We might even be able to teach Masada something about 'never again'. Because quite frankly, I consider the GOP a bunch of godforsaken fascists.

And I want to take this opportunity

... to publicly praise my favorite voter last election: the expectant mother who stayed waiting in line even though her water broke, because nothing on earth or in hell was about to stop her from voting. We need millions more just like her.

We will not sit idly by

At least not the Yellow Dogs. We will hound them to the gates of hell and beyond if that's what it takes.

But I do agree about dumping the DINOs.

Personally, I salivate over the idea of a Clinton-Castro ticket or maybe Clinton-Cuomo. It still grieves me that Mario Cuomo refused to run. I guess he had a good reason, but he still would've made one of the greatest presidents imaginable.

No, no, no!

You must learn to spel the mascot's name right. It's 'Depty DAWG'!

Hate to admit it

But so far I like your party name suggestion best.

It will take awhile to train my tongue to pronounce it, but I'm willing to put in the effort.

Teahadist Talibangelists..... Teahadist Talibangelists.... Teahadist Talibangelists....

See, I'm hard at work already.

Here's a party slogan for them, which I'm sure they'd like:

"Jesus said to kill you, and I'm here to do it; all in His holy name, of course."

or, they could shorten it to:

"Die, infidels!" That would be easier for them to remember.

Eckhart was great, wasn't he?

Second only perhaps to Niehbur, whose last name I can NEVER spell right and who is reportedly one of President Obama's favorites. And mine. But then I have a long list of equal favorites.

I like those suggestions

But please allow me to propose my own favorite, which they might actually even adopt: the GodParty.

American Taliban suits them better, but they probably won't go for it. Sounds too foreign.

I say we all promise to flood Mikey's gates with pleas for him to run, run, run as fast as possible. Promise to vote for him instead of those pinhead godless other conservatives. Considering the accuracy of your first new party name suggestion, FreshWest, I think they'd fall for it.


I'll send Mikey my lunch money!

Dear President Obama:

As usual I'd planned to dig deep to support my beloved party. But now it appears the money might serve a greater purpose if I donated it all to Mikey and begged him to start his GodParty right away and split the GOP to everlasting hell where they belong.

You're a smart man and a long range thinker. Surely you'll see that I'm right.

Regretfully but always yours,

Her Irishness

PS: As noted in the past, I retired for financial purposes only deep in the heart of the Bible Belt a.k.a. RedNeckLand. At Sunday School 2 weeks ago, all the fundies (yes, even in the UMC) had their shorts twisted, blabbering about how you would send predator drones to bomb the homes of Americans of Middle Eastern descent, right here in the US!

Of course they don't really care about such people; they just figure when you dispose of all the Muslims (even though they still believe you ARE a Kenyan Muslim yourself) that all the Republican white folks will be your next bombing target. It has something to do with that race war they claim you want to stir up.

Say it ain't so, Mr. President, sir!

There have been third party candidates before

And look where it got them - nowhere. Not even Teddy Roosevelt at the height of his popularity could win. I'd offer to serve them myself for my own ulterior motives if I could count on a major GOP split. It would make me sick to my stomach and the stench would never wear off - but there's precious little I would turn my nose up for if it kicked those scumbags to the curb.
