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!

DUers are no more immune to being excorciated for sickening callousness than anyone when a child

is murdered. That's what it was - murder. I hope those cops ROT UNDER THE JAIL.

LEO heads will roll for this.

I pity the poor parents. Perhaps just as much I should pity people without an ounce of compassion for an innocent slain child on his way to play with friends. The whole thing's sickening. But we needed to know, so thanks for the info. Now excuse me, I have to go cry.

Or at least they want to behave as if they don't remember him or what he did

or the fact that they voted for him. But then human memory can be capricious, can't it?

Lately I haven't noticed one of my favorite sig lines around here: "Daddy, tell me what were Republicans?"

Wouldn't you love that to be a common question.

I've had a few fun conversations with known Navy pilot vets railing against Dubya's carrier stunt. The pilot in charge that day is supposed to have had a terrible time stopping that fool from taking over actual control of the jet. Incidentally I think Navy pilots are the best. Landing on a carrier in storm-tossed seas has to be the diceiest trick in the world.

The more the merrier.

The one on the bottom must be from around the time Michelle met him. No wonder she fell for him! (and vice verse)

Well said.

Believe me, I understand. And I personally would love to take the entire GOP out behind the woodshed myself - even though I might need just a little help from some of you guys. I'm no ninja, after all. Just the thought is delicious, though.

A Yellow Dog specifically would vote against the Repuke if his opponent were an old mangy yellow dog

missing one leg and a few teeth.

The post to which you refer WAS extremely excessive and offensive

But it remains my mission to remind people that not every person who bashes a politician in a particular state is bashing the entire state or region. Otherwise some of us could be accused of America bashing, because yes, there are way too many crooks everywhere you look. Doesn't mean we shouldn't go after them though, no matter their location - or even party.

Your target certainly had it coming himself this time, however.

Yeah, I know.

Some situations call for nailing them to the wall; perhaps others benefit from a different approach, one that can only be determined by the person on the ground at that moment.

Far as I'm concerned, whatever works, even if it's a shillaleagh!

Well, they do hate being laughed at worse than anything, so go for it!

And now we have front-page news that Billo's saying Obama wants to seize white's assets?

You knock off one head of the hydra and a thousand more pop up.
