I'm proud of my home country. We stopped letting the US military jets stop over and refuel in Ireland too a few years ago after they were caught transporting kidnapped "terrorists" to Guantanamo via Ireland.

My family's fleeing country is Ireland. My mom is planning to get double citizenship in case of a Hillary/Jeb win.

in case of a Hillary/Jeb win.

Bush-Clinton set aside their imaginary differences and create a dream ticket for oligarchs everywhere!

I think it's pretty easy to get the citizenship too, if memory serves you just need one grandparent born in the country. The Irish economy is kinda crap since the bailout but it's been picking up for the last while.

Fleeing country. For political purposes mostly? Are you a spy family? :p

As someone who has not considered having such a thing and as an Outsider. Why Ireland? It has had its share of political problems.

Not like it matters. Worst case scenario the US still has England and Scotland.

Yeah that's true. They were using Shannon Airport which is a quiet rural airport so I'm sure they were inconvenienced at having to change their plans.

OK, enjoy dealing with America's filth. Just means my taxes won't go to house, feed and cloth this one.

He's not from America and he's already done his bid here, so nor will I.

Gee, I wonder why Ireland is so sympathetic towards terrorists...

Ohhh yeah, that's right. Because they supported a massive terrorist campaign against Britain in an attempt to take over British territory.

Fuck Ireland.
