The Wearing of the Green

Irish Rebellion of 1798
The wearing of the green song
 goes way back.

O Paddy dear, and did you hear the news that going round?
The shamrock is forbid by law to grow on Irish ground;
St. Patrick's Day no more we'll keep, his colours can't be seen,
For there's a bloody law against the wearing of the green.
I met with Napper Tandy and he took me by the hand,
And he said, "How's poor old Ireland, and how does she stand?"
She's the most distressful counterie that ever yet was seen,
And they're hanging men and women 
for the wearing of the green.
Father Murphy of Wexford cry
"arm, arm for Ireland's freedom we fight or die"
Years ago if you wore ORANGE like the king of England
you were looking for a fight.
My last trip I saw walls with thousands of names
of people who died of hunger. It shook me to the core.
During the Great Famine there was a famine pot located on the roadside 
in the Townland of Cullionboy, in the Parish of Townawilly in County Donegal.
the famine pot became the property of local farmer, Patrick Colhoun. 
In later years the pot was used to heat water by the local farmers when 
they were dipping sheep.

Famine Pot, Cullionboy, Co Donegal
In July 2011, I went in search of the famine pot only to discover
it had been attacked and broken in a number of pieces. 
A quick check revealed only two small pieces of the pot were missing. 
One of the pieces was found a few days later in a nearby stream. 
Thanks to the expertise of Stephen Jarvis, who was given the onerous 
task of welding the pieces together, 
the famine pot was restored to its former more
John Cassidy, Mattie Lennon
I have seen the Famine pot and the graves and the Coffin
ship stories Most didn't make the landing alive,
they were sent by the English to Canada, Australia.
 I did get some fun, laughing my side's off in a Real Pub on the ocean.
The first time i went it truly had the feel of fairies and spirits.

1,400 security Badges MISSING???

1,400 Security Badges Lost,
Stolen at Atlanta Airport
Employees lose their badges
at every airport, not just in Atlanta,
though the TSA has refused
 to release statistics on missing
airport badges across the country,
citing security  concerns.
Atlanta airport officials added that
the situation needs to be put into
perspective: There are more
than 63,000 employees working
 at the airport and that doesn't
include  many more who work for the airlines.
so, they argue, 1,400 lost badges isn't so many over two years.

My opinion is todays workers are just careless
or don't give a damn. Anyone that lost a badge
should serve time in jail. That would stimulate the brain.

Political commentator Laura Ingraham
claims a TSA worker responsible for disappearance
of her Jewelry bag at Liberty airport. 
Transportation Security Administration, 
which handled and screened the bag,
respectively, say the incident is under review.
COME ON!! don't they test these people?
Image result for images of idiots
a security expert who consults with airports and airlines
around the world, airport attack in Pakistan last year
where terrorists dressed as security workers

took siege to Jinnah International Airport,
 killing more than a dozen people.
Heck, that is a heavy looking badge
you could feel it if the catch was broken
and it fell off. This is just irresponsible
it is as important as a billfold.
