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.

The Birds And The SOB’s

The Anti-Abortion people are still trying to destroy Roe vs. Wade (guaranteeing a woman’s right to choose) after more than 40-years. I refuse to call them ‘Right-to-Life’ – because the only lives for which they care are people who share their narrow values. They refuse to acknowledge their role in the abortions they cause.

Anti-abortion activists are often the same people who oppose sex education in school unless abstinence is the only choice taught, oppose the widespread distribution of birth control, oppose sex between anyone not married (and, of course, no gays at all), oppose any “abortion pill,” and oppose masturbation.  Now some in Congress are linking an anti-abortion measure to a popular and necessary bill to fund Homeland Security. 

Fanatics think they have some exclusive pipeline to God and the rest of us are murderers if we support a woman’s right to choose. For example, they think a Plan B pill causes an abortion by preventing a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus. But they’re the only nitwits who define abortion in that way. Virtually everyone else in the world regards Plan B as an emergency contraceptive which PREVENTS a pregnancy from occurring in the first place. There is no abortion!

Let’s be honest. The Anti-Abortion crowd is against much more than abortion – they’re really against any sex outside of a Christian marriage. So when an uninformed minor cannot get birth control, becomes pregnant, then is denied the use of emergency contraception,  panics, and then has an abortion – who’s really to blame?  Who are the REAL murderers here? Rational people know it is much better to prevent problems than to try to solve them.  Religious zealots don’t.
