The ever-growing number of countries ordering pizzas for the Wisconsin protestors at Ian’s Pizza
Lord God, I sure do thank you for the good, caring and compassionate People In the World. Thank You Lord
I tried to post a comment earlier, but it didn’t show up, so then I tried to repost it.. and it wouldn’t let me.. so this is a test, only a test….
Hi sherijr, there seem to have been a few glitches the last couple of hours with posting – I found a few regulars’ comments in the spam folder Can’t remember now if yours was one of them, but unless you were a previously banned Teabagger or you were trying to sell me tablets that would, apparently, make my bosom 25 times bigger you shouldn’t have been in there.
Hey! Were you trying to sell me tablets that would make my bosom 25 times bigger?
heh, lol.. the only trick I have up my sleeve (or in my shirt) for enlarging one’s bosoms is to just get fat Apparently thats how its done.. eat and grow.. I’m learning by experience Happy trails~
That’s why I get frustrated with my bosom-growing spam: it’s bosom-reducing spam I need. Yes, it’s food-related
Put me on that list also. LOL…..how do I find the codes for the faces?
Here ya go Barb:
okay.. working now.
Anyhow that board is beautiful – Congratulations countries of the world for uniting. Well done.
Holy Moly, this is fantastic. Actually, it almost brings me to tears. It is so heartfelt. You sure find some good stuff fer us Chips.
It’s just amazing Dorothy, isn’t it? And my niece put Ireland on the board
How incredibly cool. I told my husband about it last evening and he was smiling and pleased with the univeral effort to support the unions.
Chipsticks how do they view President Obama in Ireland do you know. He use to have a site named The World wants Obama during the campaing but now its gone.
Hey Tulips. Traditionally Ireland would always have been 99% Dem, for obvious reasons – the main one being JFK. There was also huge affection for Bill Clinton because of his amazing commitment to the Irish peace process – and that commitment was staggering – so, initially there would have been a lot of support for Hillary at the primaries stage. Once President Obama came through the primaries, though, the bulk of Irish support went his way.
An example of how Ireland feels about Republican presidents: when Bush visited Ireland in 2004 for an EU-US summit it was the biggest security operation in the history of the state. The public wasn’t allowed anywhere near him because of the depth of opposition to his Iraq war. When Clinton visited Dublin 80,000 people came out to greet him – see this video from 2:14
Tragically, having always been a moderate country politically – for the most part left-leaning in terms of economic policies – Ireland now has a significant ‘new right’, most of whom would identify with the right in the U.S. One of them is actually a Palin devotee – the Irish General Election is on Friday, he’s standing, if he wins a seat I might possibly shoot myself.
An idiot by the name of Enda Kenny will be Ireland’s next Prime Minister (Taoiseach). I honestly have no words to describe how much I loathe him. On March 17 he will be in the White House for Patrick’s Day – I truly hope the U.S. media picks up on this:
Frankly, he’s scum.
So, Ireland’s ‘right’ would oppose President Obama every step of the way, but the rest – the decent people – constantly marvel at the levels of racist opposition to him, and are utterly bewildered by the attention Palin receives: she is a complete laughing stock in Ireland, as she is in most of Europe.
The irony? Ireland’s economy has been literally destroyed by right-wing greed and corruption, out of a population of 4 million, 1,000 people are leaving the country every week. Unemployment is at 14%, the country is on its knees. But still, the right-wingers running in the election are adopting President Obama’s slogans – change we can believe in, all that – when their very philosophy destroyed the country they claim to love. They don’t love it at all. They just screw it for all its worth. One of their sugar daddies is a multi-millionaire who made much of his fortune out of seedy deals with Alaska’s Ted Stevens, and features in ‘Blood Money’, the book that details the profits made out of Iraq by lowlife ‘entrepreneurs’.
That’s why my niece bought a pizza for the Wisconsin protestors: we are all in this together.
Wow as a African American , I don’t know why but i always feel a connection with the Irish. I don’t know why but one of my closet friends is irish and i can talk to her about anything and feel she is so geniune.
It’s a horrible old cliche, I know, and probably hugely offensive too – but the Irish have always been known as “the blacks of Europe”.
Ah hah my people LOL!
You know Tulips, you might have a bit’ of Irish in ya. As an African American,if your heritage is from the south a lot of Irish whites settled there. I know in the past they went by the one drop rule but I think that most AA are mixed somewhere in the past unless a person is a first generation African. I think that so many today have pasted those old prejudices and don’t really see a diference. I also know there are some who haven’t but being a grandmother with three beautiful biracial grandchildren I can say I am one of the luckiest grandmothers in the world. When the whole family get’s together we are just a whole bunch of everything and laugh ourselves silly because we have so much fun.

Damn it Barb, you’re my kinda gal – LOVE ya!!!!!
I Love ya too Chipsticks !!!!!!!!
Maybe so, My ancestors that living will not share their past. I know their something there.
Tulips, from now on I am going to call you O’Tulips.
Chipsticks, Do you have a really big head? I am not sure how you get all of the information you have into a normal sized brain. thanks.
I have a very big head, Dorothy – but it’s full of hot air!
Imagine devastated Haiti donating to help those a bit better off than them. God bless them and it’s time for that country to heal and prosper. That is my prayer for Haiti.
It might have been the US base, McMurdo on Ross Island, Antarctica. Here’s the Cool Antarctica site
I used to talk online to a young guy that was based there — there are some extremely interesting folks at McMurdo.
This is so cool!
Wow!!! This is wonderful!!! Thank you world!!!
“The whole world’s watching”…and sending pizza!
