Trump has Proclaimed the Month of March 2017 to be "Irish-American Heritage Month" !!

Neat-O

A "Green" thing.




IRISH-AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH, 2017

- - - - - - -

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

Irish Americans have made an indelible mark on the United States. From Dublin, California, to Limerick, Maine, from Emerald Isle, North Carolina, to Shamrock, Texas, we are reminded of the more than 35 million Americans of Irish descent who contribute every day to all facets of life in the United States. Over generations, millions of Irish have crossed the ocean in search of the American Dream, and their contributions continue to enrich our country today.

From our four Irish-born Founding Fathers to Thomas Francis Meagher, the Irish revolutionary who became an American hero after leading the Irish Brigade during the Civil War, Irish immigrants have shaped our history in enduring ways. Throughout the centuries, hard-working Irish Americans have contributed to America's innovation and prosperity -- tilling the farms of Appalachia, working the looms of New England textile mills, and building transcontinental railroads -- often overcoming poverty and discrimination and inspiring Americans from all walks of life with their indomitable and entrepreneurial spirit in the process. From these early beginnings rose generations of Irish Americans who continue to lead our cities, drive our economy, and protect and defend the land they embrace as their own.

American culture carries an unmistakably Irish-American imprint. Our literature, cinema, music, dance, sports, and visual arts are filled with the names and influence of great Irish Americans.

Rumor has it O'Reilly said he wouldn't endorse Trump, but this tied together the negotiation. I kid.

So does this mean we are supposed to get sh*tty drunk every day this month instead of just on St. Paddy's???

Alright!!! First good policy by Trump so far. Not sure most of us will even be awake again until June though.

Three cheers for Donald 'Patrick O'Malley' Trump.

Has he recently bought a boatload of Guinness and Jameson stock?

You have not idea, xuenchen, is better than you think, specially when I am publicly talking about politics and bring down the minority card to say whatever I want.
