Culling Of The Herd

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, Rochester, NY, 2012.  over 150,000 people – most of whom were drunk – even the kids.

Well what would you do to impress your girlfriend because you were too late to get a street side view?  How about drunkenly climbing up a stone platform and standing with your back to a 25-foot drop to the rocks and shallow river below? AND she’s coming up with you – which means she either loves you – or she’s just as drunk and stupid as you are.

Remember folks, each of these people’s vote counts just as much as yours.

(Your basic Saint picture with a few shamrocks thrown in = St. Patrick. And why is he looking down? More snakes?)

I can’t imagine anyone taking pride in something they didn’t accomplish themselves. Your ancestry is just an accident of birth and has little to do with who you are today. Proud to be Irish, Italian, Puerto Rican, American, or anything else – just doesn’t make sense to me.

So what are we celebrating today? Irish pride? Corned beef and cabbage? Potatoes before Atkins? (no wonder these people drink so much – their food sucks) Of course the Irish were discriminated against when they first came to America.  So was everyone else except the Pilgrims. And Indians have stories that’ll tear your heart out. But really, who cares?

So we gave the Irish some green stripes down the road, parades, and a 1-day license to be raging drunks . The Italians got  Columbus Day and the Indians got casinos and no tax on cigarettes. The Blacks got Kwanzaa and the Jews got the whole garment district in New York. Everyone gets something – this is America – be happy. And if you can’t be happy with what you get, at least be thankful you don’t get what you deserve.
