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!

The figures I saw showed a much greater disparity.

Also, these children are coming from homes that had something of value to sell to afford the trip, horrific as it is, and so they've probably enjoyed better health than the poorer kids. Higher rate of vaccination, etc.

You're not in any way siding with the alarmists who shout and scream UNCLEAN! are you?

As another guitar lover, I'll recommend the work of JD Simo on the very off chance you don't

already know him. Only person I ever saw to equal Hendrix and SRV, and I think he edges ahead of Clapton.

Sorry if anyone objects to the distraction, but nobody can mention guitars around me w/o my chiming in for Simo. Who also happens to be a nice young man, btw.

My, how nice to be able to just snap your fingers like that and make your words true!

Will you teach me this valuable skill, perhaps?

That's because they're full of themselves; I know some would rather lose to the GOP

rather than see their own favorite lose to another Democrat. They're dogs in the manger.

Let 'em go at it then. I have ZERO tolerance for the GOP. If they did burst a blood vessel

in their head at any time, I don't know how we could tell the difference.

Neither would I want to be embraced by a bunch of snakes.

I'm sure they'll pull out every misogynistic myth from history to fling at her or any other Democratic woman candidate. If they could, they'd probably call for female genital mutilation of 'social undesirables' - meaning the liberal women they fear so much. Don't think they wouldn't try that crap if they thought it would help them politically. They don't mind insisting that the poor deserve to starve and die bankrupt, and they want to make the middle class the New Poor so they can pick them off too.

One thing for sure - McCain IS deranged.

This admittedly photoshopped picture is hilarious

I don't know if anyone has posted the article elsewhere on DU and I haven't got time to look right now. Even if it's a dupe, it's still worth seeing twice.

After my ex left and there were no kids in the house,

I got 2 more chow chows, my favorite dog breed. They had no particular jealousy problems between themselves because they were full sisters, littermates and I took them at 5 weeks. They just naturally found their own balance and didn't seem to mind sharing me. But even if they liked another person too, that person would never be allowed to stand between them and me. Nobody could. I kept them well controlled at all times, but I always felt very safe even when traveling 'alone', because they could turn on their wild dog act quickly enough. But they ate together, curled up to sleep together, and some people who saw them from a distance thought I had them chained together because they were seldom more than a foot or so away from each other.

I guess they could've been provoked to mutual jealousy, but I never believed in doing that. They were my family, to the point that when the vet finally came to the house to bury them for me, I turned away crying out that I wished he could throw me in there with them. You wouldn't want to know me for weeks after that, and I still cry when I look at their grave. They were placed as close together in death as they were in life.

Well, we always knew he's delusional among other problems.

Didn't dodge the draft with his shitty pants?

Hasn't publicly expressed a preference for underage females?

Hasn't said racially charged, unrepeatable things about President Obama?

Hasn't suggested the South should've won the Civil War?

Isn't beloved by the KKK?

I could go on, but it would break the internet.

Never mind, we've almost brought Pig Boy down and we can do the same for Teddy Boy given a little more time.

Frankly I favor running all the RWNJs out of town. It isn't like they're redeemable or anything.
