You would have got that anyway :-( It was not just our country that had it

You don't have politicians over there?

Not necessarily

It is nice to know that you are native American, but can you expand on that for an ignorant Brit please?

Seems to be some question as to what it is http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a930730.html Many years ago my grandmother told me that her grandfather's ethnicity was "Black Irish." Recently I've heard three different explanations concerning the origin of the term:
(1) It refers to a mixture of Irish and Spanish blood dating from the time of the Spanish Armada, when many shipwrecked Spanish sailors were washed up on the Irish coastline and wound up staying.
(2) It refers to a mixture of Irish and eastern European blood.
(3) It refers to a mixture of Irish and Italian blood from the time of the Roman Empire.

Do the Ojibwa have any casinos?
I know the Pechangas are tossing people out of the tribe left and right - even with impeccable lineage research that goes back a few hundred years - just because they didn't vote the right way on casino related tribal elections. Cutting off casino profit participation checks, throwing them out of schools and hospitals, out of houses on tribal land, canceling health insurance...

People, people. It was Bill Brysons book about language that asserted, I don't know with what justification, that the current US "drawl" is more like the accent used by Elizabethan English - i.e. when the Mayflower set sail - than the current English accent that comes from a load of Germans, Dutch and Greeks that we brought over 200 years ago to rule us. So you guys are actually closer to original English than we, the English, are.
