I have yet to find someone to top the sob story of Irishmen
I'm 100% Irish (from the North - bonus points) can I get free gas? Seriously, it's like $4 a gallon and my car uses premium!

Much as I love to bitch about the British, I tend to think the Jews and Native Americans have got ****tier deals.

We are AWESOME complainers though!

The difference is that the average Canadian of Irish descendent or Jewish history is pretty well off. The average Native American...not so much.

On the other hand, a lot of them have nobody to blame but themselves. There are no reservations in the Yukon, yet the people on the lower end of the socioeconomic spectrum here are overwhelmingly Native, despite all the economic benefits they DO get. In certain corners, there's still an overwhelming sense of entitlement that you don't see with a lot of minority communities.

One could argue that they had their land, natural resources, and way of life taken from them and if not, they would be well off.



This always makes me laugh.
No offense intended LOL

still, it's a sense of entitlement to land that they used to own, i think that's still less irritating than the manifest destiny sense of entitlement to land that you didn't own.

There's definitely cause for resentment there, but at the same time the entitlement attitude is holding back huge segments of the population's quality of life, and creating a negative stereotype for an entire ethnic segment (Using this umbrella very broadly).

Seriously, how does this help your point? Using semi illiterate "txt" speak to make an official statement.

Shows how much I know about twitter. That sounds stupid and seems like it encourages people to post nearly illiterate things.

Isn't that a good thing? If more and more people believe they get free gas, then one day they can demand the free gas and get it.
