If I was a betting man, I would put a twenty on some cheap booze or smack. My point is, we have an irrational instinct inside us all, to look after our own, ahead of outsiders.
Giving a guy money that you're fairly confident he'll spend on smack is not looking after anyone.
American black males are twice as likely than American white males to have MAOA-L which has been linked to crime
If American black males ate twice as much fried chicken than American whites, you could theories that it's genetic too but I do not see anything conclusive about the theory you like because it galvanizes your views.
played soccer, gaelic and boxing. Watched Italian, Spanish and Irish soccer every weekend. British comedies. Went to Gaelic football matches. Watched Japanese horror movies. Listened to American music. Went on holidays in Spain. Ate their cuisine and absorbed the real spanish culture(not Brit/Irish areas.Real Spain)Ate Italian, Irish, and Asian food. Was taught French, Spanish and Latin in school.

Strange that you think multicultural is anything BUT what you have not experienced, there's no overlap in the above two statements.
SeanBM: who are "our own".
That will vary per person.
That's the point I am making, you draw a line around Dublin and stop there. why do you expect anyone else to do the exact same?
You posted about how the Turkish King gave foreign aid to Ireland during a famine, it appears he didn't draw a line around Istanbul (or wherever he was from).
I don't really believe in altruism, selfish gene and all that but that's going way off topic.
What? Back this up. Is a hitman working for gangs in Brixton considered a serial killer?
You are as well able to walk to a library or to use google, as I am.
A hit-man is can be a serial killer but they are two different things. Approximately 9/10 serial killers are white males between the ages of 20 and 35.
[trutv.com/library/crime/serial_killers/notorious/tick/victims_1.html] - the average serial killer is a white male
Etc... but I remind you that I think many countries do not have criminal profilers like Europe do or just out and out lie about what happens in the country.
A minuscule number of politicians enter the game to better the nation or out of any sense of civil duty. Those that do, eventually become corrupted too. Same the world over.
There are levels of corruption, Ireland's politicians have destroyed Ireland's economy, when do you think Ireland will be in the plus again?
The point I want to make is that this was Irish people, feckin over what you call "their own". You sound like you've given up on politics and yet you continue your a futile crusade on something that won't change and has far less impact for an average Irishman.
Its a warning from someone who grew up in a homogeneous city. Now, foreigners make up between 17-25% of the overall Irish population and even higher again, in my city, Dublin. In a decade. It was 2% or 3% in 2001. Thats a staggering statistic.
I think I am a bit older than you because the homogeneous city I grew up in in the 80's people were leaving in their droves to find work in other countries.
The staggering number of people who left and have Irish citizenship, the people, like yourself that they met and were scorned for needing work. I am sure you are seeing it now again. If you take out the last 15 years of Irish history it is, business as usual.
I get the feeling that you think Irishness or Irish culture is something stagnant, something too weak and can't stand up with cultures. I really don't believe that at all. I find that the foreigners in Ireland have made Irish people realize what being Irish actually means, you can see it in the upsurge in people wanting their kids to be fluent in Irish. You scold at how St. Patrick's day is, it's not Irish anymore etc... It changes, evolves and trying to hold on to something that was way crapper before foreigners got a hold of it is folly. when I was a kid St. Paddy's day was crap, it was the Americans who really celebrated it.
All this has reference to Polish culture and immigration. At the end of the day, immigrants are sinners and saints, like the rest of us. I wouldn't think that which nation of immigrants is best but that a criminal record be checked.
I am not a Polish citizen, and neither are you I suspect. So our opinions matter not a jot. It should be up to the people.
I am an immigrant living in Poland, this topic is about me (not just me unfortunately:)
