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!

Don't let this get out... but,

I'm totally in love with Mr. Pierce.

Oh dear...

I had to go back into the pig's den and post a direct link to this OP to make sure he could find us.

See? I'm the sweetest, most helpful little DU LEFTIST ARMY member of all. Wouldn't hurt a fly, I wouldn't. (Pigs are another matter.)

The enemy of my enemy(ies) is my friend. Regardless of any other disagreements,

which pale in comparison to the Common Foe.

That's not all he abuses. See #80.

Nothing's too bad to wish on that godforsaken Short Eyes.

Wow. And that was even before Her Irishness arrived.

I prefer the descriptive moniker 'Pig Boy' for the idiot.


(grin) Warms my lefty heart, it does, to hear him carry on that way. Only trouble is, since he has one foot over the edge and the other on a banana peel, whatever will I do for fun when he's gone for good?

Oh well... the woods are full of deer ticks like him. There'll always be at least a few around to keep us 'dangerous lefties' entertained.

At one time I was addicted to the Sunday tv political wars.

Back then there was actually some intelligent, real debate going on and the hosts weren't total idiots. Now they make me puke and I avoid them like the plague they are.

Still listen to the evening news for one hour only while I rest or do other things, but that's it. Since I am a bona fide news junkie, I keep up with an online news feed from 6-7 different sources. And I do watch presidential candidate debates after first taking some Pepto Bismol.

Thanks - as I said, I didn't get the details on that story, only the headline.

And I'd rather suspect methane than a bomb. Less ominous. But if I'm wrong, I'm wrong.

Did anyone else read the story of the exploding porta-potty this past week? I swear it wasn't an Onion piece. Anything too unusual, I try to remember to check the source.

Why did that thing go blooey, anyhow?
