NJ Irish Pub Is in the 'Bag' on Bag Day

There are 20 comments on the The Associated Press story from Mar 18, 2008, titled NJ Irish Pub Is in the 'Bag' on Bag Day . In it, The Associated Press reports that:

“It's an excuse to have some hair of the dog.”

Paul Murphy came all the way from Glasgow, Scotland, to stand against the back wall of The Irish Pub with a pint in his hand and a paper bag on his head.

He did not stand out in the least at the bar, which was packed Tuesday afternoon with people wearing brightly decorated paper bags atop their heads, for this was Bag Day, the second-greatest day of the year at The Irish Pub.

Each March 18, the day after St. Patrick's Day, people come from far and near to jam the joint, most wearing some sort of bag fashioned into a hat atop their head. The tradition dates back 24 years to a group of exhausted waitresses and casino workers who realized they had worked through the entire night and missed St. Paddy's Day. Read more

Got that right! Ever since Obama got in the White House,God help your ass if you look at a person of color crosseyed!And yet, i work in a social service office where I here them call each other the "N" word, all the time! You as a person not of color, would be hund out to dry, if you did! These race baiters are a dime a dozen and offer NOTHING constructive to this country, except their sorry-assed crap of "We was in chains and still are"! Bull! Get over it! Every and I mean EVERY racial group in our world has suffered at the hands of some maltreatment, or another! Take the Jews, for example. What was more horrible than what happened to them! Stuffed alive in ovens, operated on without anesthia, thrown into concentration camps, you name the atrorcity, these people suffered it! And all the Blacks can do is cry over slavery over 150 years ago? Give me a break! Guess what? Do your research on this one. It was tribel chiefs in Africa who sold their own people to the Dutch slave traders for gold and ivory. Even today, do you know you can go to Africa and pick up somebodys kid for a paultry $15.00, no questions asked? And what other country does this practice sound like this pracitice is carried on to you? Three guesses and the first two don't count! Human trafficing in is a global problem. Everything I just said, you can go on the United Nations website. It's all there!

To the poor, uninformed souls, who felt that putting little idiotic symbols on my post would somehow detract from the truth I stated , they don't! Jerry Spence, a prominent Colorado attorney-at-law said it best: "The facts are a stubborn thing!" Enough said!
