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!

Never would've happened in your youth?

Did you grow up in a bubble? Just because you're unaware of something doesn't mean it never existed.

Teabaggers lap up lies like antifreeze

After my last letter to the editor in our local weekly, some guy wrote back next issue screeching at the top of his lungs about "LYING SOCIALIST HYENAS!" Gee, he could've hurt my feelings with that.

I never thought him timid

And I have half a dozen tee shirts to prove it. Favorite: 'there's a new sheriff in town' etc.

Besides, he's far and away the best president and I still love him even if I get mad at him, usually over something I'm misunderstanding anyway. And believe me, Irish egos don't rein themselves in easily.


The family that assaults together stays together.

At least this father and son will, in the slammer! Whooo!

I think it relates to the infamous Twinky Defense

I never knew a real hippie

with such a chip on his shoulder, that's for sure.


Can't you just imagine the carnage on Black Friday with crazed materialists vying for the last big screen tv?

No, everyone does NOT understand or accept limits about much of anything

There are plenty who want to pack heat to church!

Oh my, wouldn't the Prince of Peace be impressed with that?

Just why the hell should anyone think they NEED to carry a firearm in public?

I might think I should be able to pee on your living room carpet at 3 a.m. too, but that wouldn't make it right.

Are you

Trying to drag us back to that old saw, "A well armed society is a polite society"?

Complete BS.
