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!

Why are you asking me what a quote from someone else means? Why not ask THAT person?

If you don't know who that person is, the better path would be to ask whom I quoted.

In the second place, playing Philadelphia lawyer won't get you anywhere. You were - still are - just grasping for any straw to criticize and start an argument, tarnishing any claim to good intentions. I'm not a group mod, as you could easily look up for yourself. But I do watch the door a bit, and I can guarantee you what the group standards and practices are. If you have a bone to pick, do it elsewhere.

Has GD grown so dull and boring that you can't 'debate' everything to your heart's content where it's welcome? Does it seem fine to you to sit in the Sea Hawks bleachers and cheer for Denver? This is a booster club, not a long-knife debating society, thank you. I'm personally (and not alone) sick of having an open hand pounded with a closed fist. Take it outside.
