A little Irish wisdom on St. Patrick’s Day

So St. Patrick’s Day means a lot of things to a lot of people.  To a lot of folks it’s an excuse to get drunk, or dress up in green and annoy people who don’t.  I’m sure someone somewhere actually even celebrates St. Patrick in some way, although I’ve never met that person.  For me, it’s a day to think about my grandfather who was such a staunch Irish Catholic that once, after our neighbors repainted his favorite lawn chairs orange, he never sat in them again.  A bit silly, but that’s just who he was.  The fellow in the clip below reminds me of my grandpa, talking about the economic crisis and telling it like it is, if you’re offended by profanity, don’t click on the link.  Happy St. Patty’s Day and thanks to Audrey for the clip.
