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!

Well, I could look it up FOR you, but it would be just as easy for you to google it yourself.

I won't bother because I HEARD HIM SAY IT on a tv interview. That's what the song 'The Thunder Rolls' was about.

Okay - okay!!! THAT's my favorite one! (POTUS does look good in the rain, doesn't he? Gives it

such deeper meaning than plain water falling from the sky.

Well, it's certainly a cut above the quote he gave several years ago,

about how beating his wife made her better. I hope he's grown up some.

I can only dream of being half so good.

You don't know my story and obviously haven't read the rehash upthread. Thanks for all your

well-meant but totally inapplicable advice. Above all, don't advise me to do things you wouldn't do yourself under the same conditions. It's unbecoming.

Let's hope this is but the tip of an iceberg.

I've never understood why anyone would even want to visit Arizona anyway, except from Williams northward even though I was stuck in that hellhole midstate for 8 of the longest years of my life.

Bless your heart. Nobody can ever really be prepared for such a shock.

I read several accounts of this and one critical detail's often left out:

She is supposedly using the city sewer system and not paying for that. It would be fine if she didn't use any city services AT ALL w/o paying, but she's actually leaching off the other taxpayers who have to pay. No government can be run on air. If she wants the benefits of city living, she needs to pony up her fair share. From the looks of her house, she could afford to do so, too.

There can be no digging of outhouse pits on city properties for a huge variety of reasons. So this woman needs to buy herself an Incinolet or a good compost toilet. I've also read accounts (true???) that she disposes of her human waste in the garbage - and isn't paying for that service either. Besides, can you imagine the can of worms THAT would open? Millions of people sending untreated poop to the municipal dump? Want that in your groundwater????

I'd love to have more sympathy for this woman but she's NOT 'living green'. She's living cheap in a very dangerous manner, at the expense of and direct danger to her fellow citizens.

I don't see how it could.

Oh yes, and it is plain - but that's okay. Good Dems love the sight of blue anyway.
