Hey look at me, my great-grandmother's roommate's nephew immigrated here from Ireland so I love Dropkick Murphy's and Flogging Molly!! I'm so ****ing Irish!! If you're born in America, you're an American. If you're born in Ireland, you're Irish. That's how it works. Maybe if you're a first generation immigrant you can claim something, but if not, STFU.

Thank you!

So friggin' true.

Lived in a town where approximately 64-75% possessed the sangre of de Ireland or of the boot. Ireland is literally a joke in respect to the rest of the world, and few people carry on Italy's glorious Roman days or the ways of the Sicilian. Lay off.. let the Slavic folks, the Arabians, the Africans, Haitans (gangsta revolt), the Asians hit you up with a little bit of braggery.

I'd take Italy over these cultures (Africa really is a huge generalization) most any day. Italy has contributed much more to the world's culture via its artists, and their food is better. Arabic culture, if we include the Muslim Empires of old have a lot ot be proud about, and so do Asians (both types, South and East).

I dig your overall historical perspective, but the basis of my reference I'm referring to are the d!ckwads known as Guidos who tear apart their Italian "culture." I live around CT and visit Long Island, NJ real often, so you can say my frustration is a skewer like a Kabob.

Yea, I know what you're talking about. This can be said about most ___-americans. Asian-americans who don't know anything about their culture but who talk about it a lot also annoy me.

Ireland is actually one of the richer EU countries, probably in the top 5. Get you facts straight homie!

I don't know if you're talking about some type of battle with Ireland or losing the Revolutionary War.
