“President Obama’s inaugural parade will feature eight floats, including a Hawaii float to honor his birthplace, an Illinois float to honor the first lady’s home state, and a Kenyan float just to mess with Republicans.”

Ever notice that it's wonderful for Irish-Americans--and everyone else--to celebrate St Paddy's Day, even Chinese New Year, but just try to celebrate Kenyan culture, or Syrian, Serbian, even Indian (either)...now that's subversive and must be suppressed :-/

On a related subject....

I've read that there are more kilts hanging in American closets... than exist in all of Scotland and Ireland.

Could have to do with where we all trace our roots.

When the population of Serbian descendants grows to equal the population of Scotch-Irish, we will celebrate Christmas in January.

Oy! It's Scots-Irish. Scotch is an alcoholic beverage.

It is Scotland.

And folks from Scotland are Scots.

But for some strange reason, when that is run through Ulster, it comes out "Scotch Irish"

It can be either

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotch-Irish_American

One thing they aren't really is Irish or Scottish (except as temporary colonists). They were all Protestants. They called themselves Irish when they first came over, but hyphenated Scotch (Scot)-Irish to distinguish themselves from the Catholics who came much later.


The term Scotch-Irish is first known to have been used to refer to people living in north-eastern Ireland. In a letter of April 14, 1573 in reference to Ulster, Elizabeth I of England stated, "We are given to understand that a nobleman named 'Sorley Boy' [MacDonnel] and others, who be of the Scotch-Irish race”.[6] This term continued in usage for over a century[7] before the earliest known American reference appeared in a Maryland affidavit in 1689/90.[8]

Today, Scotch-Irish is an Americanism almost unknown in England, Ireland or Scotland.[5] The term is somewhat unclear because some of the Scotch-Irish have little or no Scottish ancestry at all, as a large number of dissenter families had also been transplanted to Ulster from northern England. Smaller numbers of migrants also came from Wales and the southeast of England, and others still from Flanders, the German Palatinate, and France (such as the French Huguenot ancestors of Davy Crockett).[9] What united these different national groups was their common Calvinist beliefs,[10] and their separation from the established church (Church of England and Church of Ireland in this case). Nevertheless, a large Scottish element in the Plantation of Ulster gave the settlements a Scottish character...

The History Channel is now running a show that claims they got over here way before Columbus. (one of many)
