Out of curiosity, what are your feeling on the Goidelic Tribe, often
referred to as Micks? Or how they were ravaged by imported diseases like
bubonic plague or cholera? (Those Indians have a lot to answer for:
obviously they're totallly to blame for the loss of Irish independence.)
Their situation is very different, of course, they were merely invaded by
Angles and Saxons, and later AngloSaxons, their religion suppressed,
robbed of their hunting (and farming) grounds, murderred, nearly in
slavery, etc.

While much of the Goidelic Tribe has only been on this continent for a
century, many of their members were born here. So how many generations
does it take to become a native?
