As I was goin' over
The Cork and Kerry Mountains
I saw Captain Farrell
And his money, He was countin'
I first produced my pistol
And then produced my rapier
I said, "Stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya"
I took all of his money
And it was a pretty penny
I took all of his money,
Yeah, And I brought it home to Molly
She swore that she loved me,
No, Never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman,
Yeah, For you know she tricked me easy
Musha rain dum a doo, Dum a da
Whack for my daddy, Oh
Whack for my daddy, Oh
There's whiskey in the jar, Oh
Being drunk and weary
I went to Molly's chamber
Takin' Molly with me
But I never knew the danger
For about six or maybe seven,
Yeah, In walked Captain Farrell
I jumped up, Fired my pistols
And I shot him with both barrels
Yeah, Musha rain dum a doo, Dum a da, Ha, Yeah
Whack for my daddy, Oh
Whack for my daddy, Oh
There's whiskey in the jar, Oh
Yeah, Whiskey, Yo, Whiskey
Oh, Oh, Yeah
Oh, Oh, Yeah
Now some men like a fishin'
But some men like the fowlin'
Some men like to hear,
To hear the cannonball roarin'
Me, I like sleepin',
'Specially in my Molly's chamber
But here I am in prison,
Here I am with a ball and chain, Yeah
Musha rain dum a doo, Dum a da, Heh, Heh
Whack for my daddy, Oh
Whack for my daddy, Oh
There's whiskey in the jar, Oh, Yeah
Whiskey in the jar, Oh

You ignored my questions in the comments, Which means this must be a troll debate and you probably are going to forfeit the rest of the rounds on here, But prove me wrong. I'm not going to make an argument yet because I don't want to waste my time because you might forfeit the debate. I will make this my acceptance round and see if you respond. Make your first argument in R2, Please explain how "All Americans are Irish on St Patricks day" if you do that, We will debate. If you forfeit, Then this debate is canceled.

The United States is a melting pot, Or at least it used to be, We come from so many cultures and assimilate, Pizza is now american, As are egg rolls and sushi corn bread and collard greens. We are a nation of cultural appropriation, We borrow, And steal the best aspects from the many cultures, That have landed here. . Chritmas trees are german, Cinco de mayo mexican, The god father and nothing is more american than the story the legend of the ged father or scar face, Leave the gun take the canolis. . . On St pATRICKS day we get drunk and celebrate our Irish catholic brothers and sisters and show them gratitude for green beer and leprchauns. . On st patricks we all become irish because we are all american no matter where we came from we are here now.

I agree with some of the things you are saying but there are some inconsistencies. A holiday beyond anyone's control doesn't make that person something that they are not. What about the case for people who don't celebrate St. Patricks day? I surely don't.

According to Wikipedia: "St. Patricks Day" It is primarily celebrated as a recognition of Irish and Irish American culture; celebrations include prominent displays of the color green, Eating and drinking, Religious observances, And numerous parades. The holiday has been celebrated on the North American continent since the late 18th century.

Black History Month is in February, Does that make everyone black during that time? No.

Mexican Heritage Month is September 15th-October 15th, Does that make everyone Mexican during that time? No.

I'm most certainly sure Cinco De Mayo is celebrated primarily celebrated by Mexicans/Latinos/Hispanics only. No one else really celebrates it much, It isn't a big holiday like Halloween or Christmas.

Pumpkins are apart of Halloween and people usually carve them. Pumpkins also originated from Mexico, So does that mean on Halloween all Americans are Mexicans? No. | Source: hsgpurchasing(dot)com/Articles/pumpkin. Htm "Pumpkins are believed to have originated in North America. Seeds from related plants have been found in Mexico dating back to 7000 to 5500 B. C. "

While in the merry month of May, Now from me home I started
Left, The girls of Tuam were nearly broken-hearted
Saluted father dear, Kissed me darling mother
Drank a pint of beer, Me grief and tears to smother
Then off to reap the corn and leave where I was born
Cut a stout, Black thorn to banish ghosts and goblins
A brand-new pair of brogues to rattle over the bogs
And frighten all the dogs on the rocky road to Dublin
A-one, Two, Three, Four, Five
Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road
And all the ways to Dublin, Whack, Follol de-dah
In Mullingar that night I rested limbs so weary
Started by daylight next morning blithe and early
Took a drop of pure to keep me heart from shrinking
Thats the Paddy's cure when'er he's on for drinking
To hear the lassies smile, Laughing all the while
At me curious style, 'twould set your heart a-bubblin'
They asked me was I hired and wages I required to lay
Was almost tired of the rocky road to Dublin
One, Two, Three, Four, Five
Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road
And all the ways to Dublin, Whack, Follol de-dah
In Dublin next arrived, I thought it such a pity
To be so soon deprived a view of that fine city
So then I took a stroll, All among the quality
Bundle it was stolen, In a neat locality
Something crossed me mind, When I looked behind
No bundle could I find upon me stick a-wobblin'
'Quiring after the rogue, Said me Connaught brogue
It wasn't much in vogue on the rocky road to Dublin
One, Two, Three four, Five
Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road
And all the ways to Dublin, Whack, Follol de-dah
From there I got away, Me spirits never falling
Landed on the quay, Just as the ship was sailing
Captain at me roared, Said that no room had he
When I jumped aboard, A cabin found for Paddy
Down among the pigs, Did some hearty rigs
I played some hearty jigs, The water round me bubbling
When off Holyhead I wished meself was dead
Or better for instead on the rocky road to Dublin
One, Two, Three four, Five
Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road
And all the ways to Dublin, Whack, Follol de-dah
The boys of Liverpool, When we safely landed
Called meself a fool, I could no longer stand it
Blood began to boil, Temper I was losing
Poor old Erin's Isle they began abusing
"Hurrah me soul" says I, Me Shillelagh I let fly
Galway boys were by and saw I was a hobblin'
With a "lo! " and "hurray! " they joined in the affray
Quickly cleared the way for the rocky road to Dublin
One, Two, Three four, Five
Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road
And all the ways to Dublin, Whack, Follol de-dah

Challenge accepted. Two questions, Please answer the first one, It's important.

1. Are you trolling? What was that in your R1?

2. If you are serious, Can I make my R1 acceptance round so you can actually make an argument in your R2? Explain how all Americans are Irish on St. Patricks day.
