My Grandma’s Irish, But I’m an AMERICAN

The real reason I’m updating is to check the functionality of a new feature. But I’ll try to be entertaining anyhow. What I mean is, as entertaining as I normally am, aka “not at all.” I’m looking forward to a three day weekend, as I have Monday off. It will be nice to catch up on some sleep and some daytime television.

——————————————————————-

You know, as I’ve watched the John “Michael” Bolton confirmation hearings procede, I have come to several important realizations.

First, Michael Bolton would not only be more likely to be confirmed, but would also likely be more qualified for the job.

Second, that I don’t really understand why we even bother being a part of the U.N. (aka – New World Order). It’s a ridiculous, lilly-livered outfit full of bureaucratic crapmongers. The US, on the whole, would be far better off if instead of worrying about the united “nations” we would worry more about the united “states.” I don’t care if other countries have peace. I don’t care if they have food. I don’t care if they don’t have technology. I don’t care if they tread on their own people’s rights. That’s their decision to make. Trying to get the U.N. (effectively the entire world) to agree on anything is like trying to get a straight answer out of John Marx Kennedy Kerry.

That’s because every country has their own idea of how things should be, and in order for all of them to agree, everyone has to basically do something they don’t want to do. The world would be a much better place if all countries just did whatever they wanted and stayed inside their own borders. That’s what we should be doing.

Why does it make any difference whatsoever to Americans that Afghan women can wear jeans? It’s a rhetorical question, of course. It has nothing to do with Americans whatsoever.

I’ve long said that the answer to our national security is to pull our troops out of everywhere in the world, and mass them along our borders. If you want to come in to America illegally, you should have to be able to outrun an Apache helicopter with rocket launchers. I say, if our entire military is on the border, and you make it into the country illegally, you should be made a full citizen.

When the country was new, we didn’t have to worry that much about immigration, because we were still deciding whether we were British or not, and if not, what we were going to do about it. Once we decided that we wanted to evolve beyond our European roots, we established a government, had a civil war, which still goes on today in certain Southern states.

Now that we are our own country, and have been for 250 fricking years, we need to start acting like we’re a country. Why do we have people living here that are not Americans? We have African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Asian-Americans… give me a freaking break. If being an American is not enough “ancestry” for you… then you need to take the next bus back to your nation of origin.

American is an ancestry all its own. Just because we accept people from every race, color and creed does not mean we should belittle what it means to be American. If you are living here, and you’re second, third, fourth generation American… your AMERICAN. That’s it. Unless you have citizenship in another country, you can’t FRICKING claim it. Am I an “Irish-American?” Yes, I am. But would it be completely moronic for me to go around saying that? YES. And it’s moronic for you to stick anything else out in front of “American.”

You never lived in Africa. Your parents didn’t live in Africa. You were never a slave. Your parents were never slaves. You don’t practice any of the customs of Africa. Your parents don’t practice any of the customs of Africa. You’re not a fricking African American. You’re an American.

Be proud.

    So – did the new feature work?

  4. May 13, 2005 at 9:13 am

    Blah blah blah POLITICS. Yadda yadda yadda U.N. You’re lucky I know better than to think you talk like this all the time. 😉 (Wow that sentence was TOTALLY alliterated out the wah-zoo…)

    My favorite one is Hispanic-American.

    I’ll let that soak in…

    It’s a cumbersome mouthful and Hispanic pretty much means of or relating to Spain or spanish speaking South America. In other words, they are a South American American… WTF?

    No, the new feature didn’t work. Thus the reason it’s no longer here.

    Hear Ye … Hear Ye … a nice development on what I also attempted to write about recently!

    What I don’t understand is why just because America was founded by British ex-patriates that it’s okay to let every fuckstick cross our borders? Especially the ones who want to kill us.

    Brilliant, and eloquent as ever, WCG.

    Hey Incredipete,
    Your website isn’t blocked at my school so you’ll be getting comments from me throughout the days to come. That is for two more weeks and then summer begins. I promise to keep talking to you though. I still haven’t checked my xanga, but I might get around to it this weekend.
    I like what you wrote. It’s so true. Some people may say that it’s harsh to turn our backs on other nations. But that’s not what it’s about. We can still help the poor and feed the starving. We’d just be cutting back on the slaughtering of their innocent as well as ours. America was founded so that we wouldn’t have to get involved in the rest of the world’s wars. Well, I have to run. Talk to you soon.

    As I have said, I live in Southern California, where there’s more illegal aliens from South America than there are boob jobs (and I think that’s saying something, people.). I am ALL FOR pulling out (hehe) of every other country and sticking the military along our borders.

    Clearly, your diary has been a bad, bad influence on me, Incredipeter.

  12. May 13, 2005 at 3:00 pm

    Ah, it’s nice to see my little cult is gaining some converts. 😉

  13. May 13, 2005 at 4:09 pm

    Yeah, yeah, whatever. But I’m not drinking the kool-aid, mister.

  14. May 13, 2005 at 4:12 pm

    Soon you shall all commit Diarycide simultaneously where you will all shut down your sites and spend 24/7 commenting on my site.

  15. May 13, 2005 at 4:20 pm

    Ha hahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaa!!! You’re funny. Dland fo life YO!! Fo shizzle mah swizzle.

  16. May 13, 2005 at 5:20 pm

    DiarrheaLand Sucks!

  17. May 13, 2005 at 5:30 pm

    Diarycide? Never! Diaryland FOR LIFE! Or at least until I get bored with it and want to shoot my computer.

    And believe me, Incredipete, you don’t want me commenting 24/7. I can only be witty and clever for so long before I become incoherent and completely foul-mouthed.

    Even more than usual.

    Kathy, thanks for the link. I am 93% republican according to the test… or as they said it, a “sycophant.” I’m not sure I really like the sound of that. I think the republicans are sucking up to me, not the other way around…

  20. May 14, 2005 at 10:41 am

    Dern it. I tried that link and it’s not running. Oh well, I already know I’m like the opposite of Incredipete…
