There seemed to be a wonderful thing happening the other day(on March 17), that for some reason happens every year.
Now I get that it should mean something to some people who are of a certain ancestry; And I say good and well for them, they likely deserve some sort of party for whatever oppression they have suffered against to get to where they are now. Well actually they aren't.
But here is my question. When did the island of Ireland construct an independent government, throw off the oppression of mother England, convene a new Constitution, script a structure of laws among the inhabitants of their land, and absolutely throw off any connection to any King or Queen? Um, NEVER.
Saint Patrick's Day is nothing but a reason to drink green beer and thank the Irish for.... well, nothing.
It's too bad that Americans are so ignorant about history because as has so often happened in the past, history commonly repeats its' self. And America is in the midst of turning its' self into the greatest Roman Empire that ever existed, simply because of its' own lack of knowledge of history.
Define Irony better than that.
