IRA supporter to be deported from the USA

#3
sounds like the whole family is just trying to acclumate to the Philly life style. Why deport them they are a perfect fit. :D

Sounds like a great family!

Althought the article seems to imply he would be deported to the RoI I would guess that since he is from the UK he would actually be going back to the UK.

Read it in the Irish Echo here in NYC.
Unsurprisingly, they have a completely different spin, making it out as if this family of Losers is somehow being persecuted because:

1-They're Irish.
2- They're Catholic.

Frankly, that family is a train wreck in action.
Sons Killed a Friend with a handgun at an Underage drinking party while his parents were out of state. He may now face prison as whilst in Probation got into a fight (where he broke the other males cheek bone) and said "I've Killed a Better man than you for less"

Daughter is a drug addict drunk driver who killed 1 woman and injured others driving the wrong way on the highway up in Mass.
IRS is toothcombing the fathers businesses as he paid employees off the books and other Financial Shenanigans.

Throw in a rape or 3 and they could be Kennedy's

Sen. Teddy Kennedy is going to drive the family to the airport.

I think you should keep him, it sounds like he's got the family he deserves and with firearms charges and the IRS in his hair he won't be putting any bombs under cars for a while.

True, mate. And the IRS can be much more ruthless than the IRA.

Spot on LPJ. :wink:

Poetic justice on the whole family of scum. I hope things just keep getting worse and worse for them... 8)

With his IRS returns he sounds like a shoe-in to be an MP.
No need for him to leave the US to enter politics. He could follow Tom Daschle's example - "he paid the three years of owed taxes and interest -- an amount totaling $140,167 -- in January 2009, but still reportedly owed "Medicare taxes equal to 2.9 percent" of the value of the car service he received, amounting to "thousands of dollars in additional unpaid taxes"." However, if he were an ordinary Sean, he would have had all his possessions taken from him and be in prison.

As I said, the IRS are ruthless if you are not wealthy.

Correct me if I'm wrong

We (The USA)are not part of the Commonwealth, correct?

Therefore why were we supposed to jump into a war of interrelated 1st cousin Royals unless we were threatened?

We owed no fealty to your King, nor the Tsar, nor the Kaiser. We had no treaty obligation, ala NATO to join in any military action that the UK did.

We had then substantial amounts of our population who were of German & Irish extraction who would hardly be sympathetic to siding with your country at the time.

When convinced by the "Zimmerman" telegram of a threat, we sided with the Allies. Frankly I think it was the excuse Wilson was looking for as Mexico was no true threat.

It was a war which should never have happened, a slaughter to little purpose for any of those involved. The Men who fought it suffered immeasureably though its horrors. And in the end settled little, and sowed much.


As for WW2, there I do Believe we should have gotten in sooner, but again, considering the population held isolationist views and wanted nothing to do with the slaughter of WW1 redux. Was it was hardly surprising that they didnt immediately cry for blood?

Roosevelt desperately wanted in but Congress, again, and again, declared neutrality. IIRC there was something like 6 neutrality acts before 1939 voted in. Our Military, gutted after 1919 was considered as less strong than even Finland, & Bulgaria.

We had 8 divisions in 1939, 1 in the Phillipines, 1 in Hawaii, 6 in the Continental USA, none ready for war. It wasnt until 1940 that true buildup of our forces began, and the draft put into effect.

Very well put Goldbricker and your points about WW1 are spot on. Senseless slaughter on an astronomical scale to satisfy grand egos. As for WW2 it wasn't really until Morocco that US troops began to assimilate themselves into some semblance of a force to liberate Europe certainly Ike blooded his senior commanders and everyone attempted to work together on the allied side although it wasn't an easy path.
However, I am a true Anglo-Irish male so, where were you? ;)

So you have made your excuses. What about the two apologies. The first about being late for the last two world wars 'cause you are selfish cnuts. The other being first for the next one for the same reason... Tedious Cockjockey
