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!

And I'm not your errand boy obligated to do your work. Neither do I give a damn if you want to call me a liar. I heard him!

Okay, after such an extended string of 'moran speak' on your part, I'll believe you were at least

trying to be 'humerous'. I still maintain that a single, standalone 'moran werd' will get you pegged as language deficient, especially when you spell the rong werd kerectly.

Very good of yu to grant me amnety. Or wud the bettur choice their have bin 'anmity'?

Ahem... in context, 'traitor' is the correct choice.

If you're trying to make a pun, you need to flesh it out. Otherwise you risk looking less than expert in the English language, often said to be the most treacherous in the world. Several words have at least 3 different spellings and meanings although they all sound alike. Puns are my favorite form of humor but the reference MUST be clear.

That I reported the comment or that he said it? Or perhaps you don't believe this happened.

I HEARD HIM SAY THAT MYSELF ON A TV INTERVIEW. It would probably easy for you to google it. That's what the song 'The Thunder Rolls' was about.

Well, I could look it up FOR you, but it would be just as easy for you to google it yourself.

I won't bother because I HEARD HIM SAY IT on a tv interview. That's what the song 'The Thunder Rolls' was about.

Okay - okay!!! THAT's my favorite one! (POTUS does look good in the rain, doesn't he? Gives it

such deeper meaning than plain water falling from the sky.

Well, it's certainly a cut above the quote he gave several years ago,

about how beating his wife made her better. I hope he's grown up some.

I can only dream of being half so good.

You don't know my story and obviously haven't read the rehash upthread. Thanks for all your

well-meant but totally inapplicable advice. Above all, don't advise me to do things you wouldn't do yourself under the same conditions. It's unbecoming.

Let's hope this is but the tip of an iceberg.

I've never understood why anyone would even want to visit Arizona anyway, except from Williams northward even though I was stuck in that hellhole midstate for 8 of the longest years of my life.
