thatirishbastard said"When you want to say that you refuse to enter some location, the traditional expression is not “step foot,” but “set foot”: “I refuse to set foot in my brother-in-law’s house while he lets his vicious pit bull run around inside.”"

That's general English usage, not US standard usage, which can be dated back to 1813, as I quoted above. Last I checked ARISTOshark & I are living the US, not the UK.
That's funny, last time you went off on a tirade, you seemed convinced you were Irish, which of course uses the same English as the UK. Now you want to be an American again. Dreadfully convenient, isn't it?
Part Irish and raised in the US, which you told me doesn't count. Only 100% Irish like you does, as you told us all here, as you mocked the US Irish who hold things like St. Patrick's Day parades. Kinda reminds me of that guy in Australia who's the only bonafide homosexual on this site, or possibly the known universe.
The fact that you can't even quote my own position back at me correctly shows how much you fail at reading comprehension.
Here's a hint. I have a friend who immigrated to Ireland from the Sudan when she was two. She's an Irish citizen. And far more Irish than you could ever hope to be. Because she is a daughter of Ireland, and acknowledged as such. There is no 100% Irish. There is no US Irish. There are only Americans and the Irish. You are or you are not.
No, I don't recognise your vague relative who came off a boat as proof of your Irish nationality. You know who else doesn't? The nation of Ireland. Which trumps what your American grandmum told you at a goddamn piano.
Even if you are 'part Irish,' you should be able to get basic English grammar at least partially correct.
