“Well, I think your really stupid for not knowing your history, so if that's being an ass the wear the title proudly. I'd rather be an ass the considered stupid.....LOL, LMAO, Giggle!!!!! :) ;)”

“LMAO.....how much about the Irish do you know??? Ok, I have to correct you....I just have to. Black Irish isn't a black man/woman and a Irish person......giggle. Black Irish is the color of their hair. Black hair wasn't as common in the olden day for the Irish as say blond or red or brown. So when a male child was born with black hair they were called Black Irish, and had a attribute attributed to them like they were very good in battle....beware of the black Irish......and so on.”

“......so despite your attempts at being an ass I will still reply to your reply. First: we are apparently referring to two different things. When I said Black-Irish I was not referring to the history of Black Irish people. I was referring to the exact example I gave: the consummation of African-Americans with Irish people. Why you automatically assumed that I was using the term out of context when I gave a pretty valid explanation of what I was talking about is beyond me. Almost as if you read 5 words and thought "Oh I simply must be an ass about something tonight." And if you don't think you were being an ass, I assure you, as an ass myself, you were being an ass. Refer to the usage of "LMAO" and " ......giggle" for reference.

Second, your reply has NOTHING to do with my analysis on your previous post. You're arguing about an comparison? *Say that in Allen Iverson's voice*”

“Not often enough Jack, I get to do that about once or twice a year in the summer. I live way up north so summers are VERY short....you enjoy while you have it and try not to waste it. And yes, I do understand, the mythology behind the four leaf clover, it is fun, especially when all the family gets involved :)”

“Hi Maureen,
Just realised something: you would have to leave out a LOT of the "good stuff" from your story!
Move to the South and only visit the North.
Worked for me. I will now only live where I "used" to holiday. Now only visit the City when forced to.....

“LOL, I was just going to say I have in my possession about 5 four leaf clovers that I found on our farm last summer.....and the summer before that I found about 6. There is a patch of them about a acre wide on our farm that produces a lot of them every year. No where else on our farm can you find them, but that big patch. So for me and my family its not that hard, so I agree with you if your lucky enough to have a patch that produces them its not so hard to find them.”

Sherrihf on Mar 18, 2014 at 16:48:34

“Four leaf clovers were very common in my grandmother's lawn. As a result almost everyone in my family has one pressed in their wallet...”

narutoshocker on Mar 18, 2014 at 13:32:16

“Your comparing what? A few dozen patches to several thousands? That doesn't make it common at all. It just makes it common in that patch.

That's the same thing as saying that Black-Irish people are very common if you go to this SPECIFIC community where black people and Irish people live and congregate together”

Ann Frank Brooke on Mar 17, 2014 at 22:41:24

“My grandma could walk into the yard every day ad find a four leaf clover for her grandchildren. We loved that. Every summer when we'd stay with her we'd beg her to go out an get a four leaf clover. lol”

malz moser22 on Mar 17, 2014 at 12:00:33

“I've also noticed the patches of four leaves I do find, I've also found 6, 7,9 leave clovers in those patches.”

“exactly our farm has one too!”

“Maureen,Maureen, You have to leave out a little of "the good stuff" wherever you see a four leaf clover! They are a sign of "The Little People" and you can then make a wish and the Leprechauns will make it come true!

It must be a nice life for you and your family if you have time to just look around and smell the clover... :-)”

Breena J Ronan on Mar 17, 2014 at 05:47:03

“Good, I was going to mention that too. I've picked around 50 four-leaf clovers in the past 20 years. They tend to grow in patches, so it's probably some kind of aberrant genetic population in that area. But I started making pretty bookmarks of them and giving them to family and friends because I had so many.”

donaldaq63 on Mar 16, 2014 at 22:41:39

“Must be leprechauns buried there.”

Nan Whetstone on Mar 16, 2014 at 15:38:23

“Indeed--here in Kansas I've found whole patches of four-leaf clover, one which was in the back yard of a house we used to rent. It's a type of hybrid, not a mutation.”

“Wow, your a really nasty person, And on top of that you didn't even understand a word I said. How dare you think I said her life would be terrible. YOU SAID THAT....not me. I said her life would be hard....and its going to be. But its NOT going to be terrible. My life is wonderful, I wouldn't trade it for anything. But its hard. LOL, that last comment of yours tells me a lot about you. Just because things are hard doesn't mean they are terrible. Your messed up girl. And by the way Debbie Downer(which is actually you) your the one who came on my thread and attacked....not the other way around. So if any one is a downer its you. You don't understand that something hard can also be rewarding.....you think that's terrible. I feel sorry for you..... It takes courage and foresight to do what she and I are doing. And a heads up at times is very appreciated. Grow up, not everything in life is easy....but it can be rewarding. I hope life treats you the way you think it will. I really do. But sometimes the biggest mouths land the hardest.”

MeghanR on Feb 13, 2014 at 17:30:37

“Your telling someone her life is going to be hard and I am the nasty person? You want people to feel sorry for your decisions. As for my life. it's awesome, I am highly respected and successful in my field. I love how you feel you can tell someone how hard her life will be without taking into consideration that she is not you. Go ahead and try to insult me, you can not. You keep harping about how hard your life is, no one cares, you call me a downer, I'm sorry am I telling everyone how hard my life is and that everyone else's will? Go live your hard life and whine to someone who cares! BTW the girl in question commented as well about how your life is not hers.”

“I have a decent job, thank you so much. It doesn't get easier to be a single mom. The difficulties change over time as they grow and mature. If you don't spend a quality amount of time with your children, they become latch-key children....or you pay through the nose for child care. This never changes no matter how old they get. I am just as concerned for my kids at elementary, as I am for them in High school...maybe more so as they grow. So you need to be there for them. I have a very extensive educational background, which I have not since they were born been able to use. The jobs I qualify for are not your average jobs. But I work three average jobs just to make ends meet, so I can be there when they need me. These are part-time jobs, so no healthcare included with that. I'm sorry Meghan, I've been a single mother now for 10 years, and I really do understand the reality of it. Am I putting her down?? Not even close. I just wanted to bring some reality into it, the hard times don't stop until your dead. Because even after they leave home your paying for collages. And yes, I plan my kids to have secondary education....and guess who pays for that. So don't get your panties in a knot because you have no clue.....Just be happy you don't.”

MeghanR on Feb 12, 2014 at 11:45:50

“Again decisions you have made, you're a debbie downer. Your reality is that you made a decision to not take a decent job because you want to be there for your kids, great for you and now you all get to struggle. Once again you have no right to tell this woman how terrible her life is going to be because yours is because of your own decisions. I have no sympathy for you, none. I was raised by a single mom, one who went on to be extremely successful, who did not coddle us and we turned out great. My brother's and I have successful jobs and marriages. Because of hard work and sacrifice. This young girl has an opportunity to also be successful, tell her that, not your sorry self made problems!”

“This is fantastic, thank you for the article. I live her life and I understand. The problem is is that eventually when she gets out of collage....it really doesn't change....not if you want to be a good mother. I have all sorts of education and I am also highly intelligent. But the jobs I qualify for are the ones that would take me away from my kids....in other words someone else will raise them while I'm out working. So thats wasn't my choice....my choice was to be a single mother who raised her kids. Like the girl in this story I work two to three different jobs that don't pay a lot so I can be there for my kids when they need me. I hate to tell her...her problem don't end at the end of school...new ones will pop up. But good for her for getting her education....I just wish I could have used mine, and still be a quality mother.”

MeghanR on Feb 9, 2014 at 15:44:01

“Sounds to me like you are actually not willing to take a decent job. How dare you tell her that her life will never not be a struggle. You are unwilling to make a change because you would rather stay at home, I know many woman who work full time and raise their children. You said yourself that YOU made the decision to be a single mother at home, your decision to not make your life better. Let her make the decisions best for her family and not tell her how terrible your life is because of your decisions.”

“I am so glad I live in Canada...... Maybe its the cold weather we have here. To busy keeping warm, to have time to subjugate women. We don't treat single mother very well here, but at least we don't have the republicans making a tuff situation even tuffer with asinine comments like that. I will never understand why women think they are a viable party to either represent or vote for.”

“Although I would agree with you that there is Hate speech, what is sad is that a great percentage of the misinformed and mostly disinterested people around can't tell the difference between hate speech and free speech. You might want to find out the difference between the two before leveling accusations against Ezra. Although everyone is allowed their own opinion, you are not allowed your own facts. Research the two and find out for yourself.”

“Your the reason they shouldnt get licencing. I dont mean to be rude, but Ezra influences people and if he gets to come into our homes every night then he will influence more people like you to hate. I sorry, but there is enough hate in Canada without adding Ezra on TV to the mix. Its not just the Roma that he goes after. He goes after all minorities. He is a hate filled man and doesnt belong on air. I truly hope with all my heart that the sun never gets licensed as long as Ezra is part of the organization.”

Flaming Tory on Mar 27, 2013 at 17:49:41

“I beg to differ - but YOU are the reason that Sun News should get the mandatory carriage licence. Ezra Levant is probably one of the least racist people on the air. But to speak to your "problem" with him, I can understand that sometimes a true statement can make you uncomfortable, but it is none the less true. That is not hate - it is by definition freedom of speech.
Ezra is allowed his own opinions, as you are yours but neither of you are allowed your own facts - and beyond the fact that your post is an unfair description (you are allowed) it is more importantly untrue. And that is the problem with the press today - The truth is no longer a defence. Speaks volumes about just how stupid the general public is.”
