"Fighting the world wide web of wicked wrong doers."

Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

We don't know why St. Patrick's Day is so big. We don't know the history of it either. We assume it started in Boston or New York City in the 19th century, owing to the large Irish populations in those cities back then.

We only found out late in our 30's that we have Irish in us. About a fifth. Which coincidentally fits in nicely with the Irish reputation for drinking. The family came over during the potato famine of the 1840's & 50's. It's a good thing the Irish were not vodka drinkers, I suppose.

Anyway, 1/5th of us salutes the rest of you with some old Irish sayings:

* May you be in heaven 1/2 hour before the devil knows you're dead.

* May your troubles be as few and as far apart as my Grandmothers teeth

* Here's to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold pint-- and another one!

* May those who love us, love us.
And for those who don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if he can not turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we may know them by their limping.

* May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live

* May you alway walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.

* May you never forget what is worth remembering,
Or remember what is best forgotten.

I recently discovered that the proper response to the Irish greeting, "Top o' the mornin' to you!" is, "And the rest of the day to you."

I like it!

By the way, I thought you were going to write a post on Seton Halls embarrassing loss. ;)
