I am offended that the news media and government organizers are calling the Irish and their culture a legend and myth. The Irish and their culture are much of the backbone of what created this great country and its industrial super powers. Without the Irish culture and dreams this country would not have become the greatest nation in the world.

The Irish culture and values and dreams did what no other culture has been able to do before or since. Blacks and minorities did not build this country, it was the white majority who built this country and offered it to other races and cultures to become americans on the backs of Irish generosity and willingness to share their dreams.

We are not a myth, we are not a legend, we do exist and still have the same values and cultures of the Constitution of the United States of America we created and we should be celebrated and praised with gratitude and not contempt for our culture. The greenback is our dream without prejudice as continued success of a long lasting country. As long as the Irish are in command, this country will not die.
