    This is news? I could tell Obama was Irish the first time I saw him.

    :)
     
  4. What about his ancestral homeland in Kenya? Is he ashamed of it or something?

    O'bama is about as Irish as Bush is from Madagascar. And the Irish are socialists. Is there any wonder they cheer? :)

    But not particularly socialist. Looking at the gini coefficient, 10% top/bottom ratio, infant mortality, and life expectancy data, to start with, Ireland is pretty weak in comparison to the rest of the developed world. Sure, they're stronger than the US, but so is everyone.

    Fair enough. I thought you might be implying Obama is a socialist.
     
  9. They really love the black irish man. On TV, they were shouting welcome home, welcome home.
     
  10. Ahh, yes the gini coefficient; the measure of a nation's "equality" invented by the Italian Fascist regime under Mousolini.

    Funny how this "strength" in the gini is negatively correlated with actual economic strength.
