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!

I doubt you are too much or he wouldn't still be there. Maybe it makes him feel good because you

can get mad at him (or act like it) and still stay. Reminds him to feel secure.

Awful about the suicide, but it almost surely wasn't his fault. If the person really had to be fired, and this was not some injustice, they might've been acting out and would've done what they did in any case, fired or otherwise. I've often read that suicide is the most aggressive thing you can do to people.

You have no idea who I really am, but you are so blinding fast to declare that YOU are the judge of

my veracity. Again, faux intellectual 'superiority'!

You just don't want to have your unfounded belief challenged. Boo hoo.

Well, since YOU were there at my side when it happened, I guess that makes YOU the authority,

does it????? My first-hand account versus your uninformed opinion. Of course you win! YOU wouldn't lie, would you? although you feel quite free to call me a liar. Talk about faux intellectual superiority!

Well, 'ahem' alone is insufficient, especially as the first example. BUT your pictures there are

excellent and irrefutable. Welcome or not, I'm now your devoted fan. Yes. I miss Jethro a lot. Like Barney Fife, he's a lot more fun as a fictional character than a real life encounter.

You seem to be under the misimpression that I'm obligated to jump when you bark. Not so.


Actually, a friend sent me one link today, so I know it can be found if you care to try. I'm not your errand boy.


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.
