Whereof the testimony given by Cambrensis, Spenser, Stanihurst, Hanmer, Camden, Barckly, Moryson, Davies, Campion, and every other new foreigner who has written on Ireland from that time, may bear witness; inasmuch as it is almost according to the fashion of the beetle they act, when writing concerning the Irish. For it is the fashion of the beetle, when it lifts its head in the summertime, to go about fluttering, and not to stoop towards any delicate flower that may be in the field, or any blossom in the garden, though they be all roses or lilies, but it keeps bustling about until it meets with dung of horse or cow, and proceeds to roll itself therein. Thus it is with the set above-named; they have displayed no inclination to treat of the virtues or good qualities of the nobles among the old foreigners and the native Irish who then dwelt in Ireland; such as to write on their valour and on their piety, on the number of abbeys they had founded, and what land and endowments for worship they had bestowed on them; on the privileges they had granted to the learned professors of Ireland, and all the reverence they manifested towards churchmen and prelates: on every immunity they secured for their sages, and the maintenance they provided for the poor and for orphans; on each donation they were wont to bestow on the learned and on petitioners, and on the extent of their hospitality to guests, insomuch that it cannot truthfully be said that there ever existed in Europe folk who surpassed them, in their own time, in generosity or in hospitality according to their ability. Bear witness the literary assemblies which were proclaimed by them, a custom not heard of among any other people in Europe, so that the stress of generosity and hospitality among the old foreigners and the native Irish of Ireland was such that they did not deem it sufficient to give to any who should come seeking relief, but issued a general invitation summoning them, in order to bestow valuable gifts and treasure on them. However, nothing of all this is described in the works of the present-day foreigners, but they take notice of the ways of inferiors and wretched little hags, ignoring the worthy actions of the gentry: yet as far as regards the old Irish, who were inhabiting this island before the Norman invasion, let it appear whether there has been in Europe any people more valiant than they, contending with the Romans for the defence of Scotland. For they compelled the Britons to make a dyke between their portion of Britain and Scotland, to protect (Roman) Britain from the incursion of the Irish; and notwithstanding that there were usually fifty-two thousand of a Roman army defending the dyke, and two hundred (scouts) riding about, and twenty-three thousand foot and thirteen hundred horse with them (besides), defending the frontier and harbours of the country against the violent attacks of the Scots and of the Picts; yet, with all that, the Irish would burst over the dyke, and the country would be harried by them, despite these great hosts, according to Samuel Daniel in his chronicle. Cormac, son of Cuileannan, says also in his 'Saltair,' that, as a result of the violence of the Irish (or Scots) and of the Crutheni (who are called Picts) against Britain, the Britons three times conspired against the Roman governors set over them, as a means of purchasing peace with the Scots and Picts. Observe, moreover, the straits in which the Irish had placed the Britons whilst Vortigern was king over them, whence it arose that he subsidised Hengist, with his German host, as may be read in Geoffrey of Monmouth. It is stated by Samuel Daniel that the Romans had fourteen garrisons to oppose the Scots and Picts, and that the Scots and Picts kept disturbing Britain, despite the Romans, from the time of Julius Cæsar to that of the Emperor Valentinian the Third, during the space of five hundred years; and the year of the Lord was four hundred and forty-seven when the Romans abandoned the suzerainty of Britain: and it is before that epoch a dispute arose between Theodosius and Maximus, whence it resulted that Maximus led with him a great body of the people of Britain to [French] Armorica, which is called [little] Brittany, and having banished the people who were before them in the land, he gave the country to the company who went with him to inhabit, so that some of their posterity are still there.
Excellent question Olli. I have no reason to believe that people from the smallisland of Dominica are not the best in the world.
The cutthroats are from the big dump across from Haiti. I admire the people from Haiti also, I have never heard of them having a big criminal element. Perhaps it is the French influence on both rather than the Spanish.
It's dead on arrival, although I would wholeheartedly support it. The federal and CA governments would never allow it. Secessionist movements are a dime a dozen here, and there are only two, The League of the South and Second Vermont Republic, that I take semi-seriously.
One of California's problems is that like the whole of the U.S., it's just too damn big and polarized. The extreme northern and eastern parts of the state are much whiter, more conservative, gun-friendly and distrustful of federal and state authority than the denizens of the coastal and central parts, who (with the exception of all the farmers) are left-wing, open-borders and environmental and homosexualist crackpots. This latest secession movement represents right-wing Californians, by and large.
Seriously, I'm waiting for the entire country to implode in a hellacious cataclysm after which several mini-Americas are formed. It may happen soon or not, but it's inevitable and will be interesting nonetheless. There are places in rural Idaho (among others) which have been referred to as "last redoubts" and quite a few rednecks and like thinkers are starting to populate areas around cities like Coeur D'Alene. They are heavily armed, raise and grow their own food, they can and do live off the grid and off the land and they are serious as funerals. The United States in their present form outlived their usefulness moons ago and it's time to go back to the concept of "small is beautiful."
Interesting piece including links to I.C.E. director Thomas Homan, who has promised extensive workplace raids in Northern California, and a segment of the John and Ken Radio Show. They are local Los Angeles rabble rousers, whose presence on the airwaves is a bane to cucks all over America. They can be a bit abrasive, but they have many politicians looking over their shoulders for pitchforks and torches:
