01_thumb_thumb_thumb_thumb_thumbWarning_thumb1_thumb_thumb_thumb_thuWarning_thumb2_thumb_thumb_thumb_thu[1]Good Morning Campers!  Welcome to Political Tuesday. I honestly didn’t plan on it working out this way, but it seems you guys have an awful lot of politics on your mind, so we are going to show a good portion of what you campers have sent in to our in-box.

We also have a chance today to feature the comic work of Chad Carpenter and his Tundra cartoons.  I’m SURE when you see them that you will recognize them.  His art has graced our pages in the past and I’m sure they will again in the future.  On Chad’s website, http://www.tundracomics.com/default.asp you will find humor from one end to the other.  Just click on his “About Chad Carpenter” link on the left panel and here’s just a tiny sample of some of the hilarity on his site:
Chad was born at an early age. Abandoned by his parents on his 20th birthday, he was forced to wander aimlessly in his neighbors backyard. It was there that he was adopted by a pack of friendly ground squirrels and taught the ways of small rodents. Subsisting mainly on grass, seeds and insects, Chad grew and grew, Until one day, the neighbor finally got sick of the huge holes Chad was digging in his rose garden and had him leave the state. Thus in 1988, Chad moved from his home in Alaska to Sarasota, Florida where he had the nice opportunity to learn some of the cartooning tricks of the trade from “Hagar the Horrible” creator Dik Browne.  
You just gotta love this stuff!

There ought to be enough funny stuff sprinkled amongst the political stuff to keep you humor purists happy, and there ought to be enough political stuff to get you ranters up and growling.  So, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and prepare to laugh or scream…purely your choice.  (Kinda sounds like my sex life….they either laugh or scream…okay, so that was pretty bad, but I had to….it was just too fitting.  Okay, go on, get moving.  Nothing to see here…)

From our dear friend and fellow camper K²… this may be an oldie, but it sure is a goodie…

Cletus is passing by Billy Bob’s hay barn one day when, through a gap
in the door, he sees Billy Bob doing a slow and sensual striptease in front
of an old green John Deere.

Buttocks clenched, he performs a slow pirouette, and gently slides
off first the right strap of his overalls, followed by the left. He then
hunches his shoulders forward and in a classic striptease move, lets his
overalls fall down to his hips, revealing a torn and frayed plaid shirt.
Then, grabbing both sides of his shirt, he rips it apart to reveal his
stained T-shirt underneath. With a final flourish, he tears the T-shirt from
his body, and hurls his baseball cap onto a pile of hay.

Having seen enough, Cletus rushes in and says, “What the heck’re ya
doing, Billy Bob?”

“Good Lord, Cletus, ya scared the bejeezers out of me,” says an

obviously embarrassed Billy Bob. “But me ‘n the Ol’ Lady been havin’
trouble lately in the bedroom d’partment, and the therapist suggested
I do something sexy to a tractor.”


[Don’t make me come ‘splain this to you! Read the last line again, slowly.]

Oliver North: Obama’s Mideast Tack ‘Deadly Mistake’

Friday, 20 May 2011 11:55 AM

By Henry J. Reske and Kathleen Walter

President Barack Obama’s prescription for peace in the Middle East could be a deadly mistake for the United States, retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North tells Newsmax.TV.

The former National Security Council member was commenting on Obama’s speech at the State Department where he laid out his vision for the Mideast after the killing of Osama bin Laden and the struggles for reform in the region that have rocked long-established regimes in countries such as Egypt and Libya.

“I think we ought to look very carefully at a very naïve, utopian idea for how the world works,” North said. “And the idea of stepping back, as Mr. Obama has done, from a leadership position when we are the world’s superpower is a deadly mistake for the United States. It offers opportunities for our adversaries and makes our allies very insecure.”

Obama devoted a major portion of his speech to Israel and pushed for the country to negotiate a peace agreement with the Palestinians. The president endorsed a key and controversial Palestinian demand that borders for a Palestinian state be based on the national boundaries that existed before the 1967 Six Day War when Israel occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is to meet with Obama at the White House Friday, quickly rejected the idea, calling the 1967 lines “indefensible.” North characterized the idea as something “Jimmy Carter could be proud of.”

“What he obviously intends to do is to try to build on whatever momentum he has in the Arab world, the Muslim world, by attacking America’s only ally in that part of the world, the only real democracy in that part of the world and that’s Israel by pressuring them on the 1967 border issue,” North said. “It’s been around since Jimmy Carter and obviously he’s returned to that same political philosophy.”

North also questioned the wisdom of putting forth such a proposal the day before Netanyahu’s visit to the United States.

“To do this on the eve of Netanyahu’s visit to the United States clearly shows this man’s ego, and I’m talking about Mr. Obama’s, and his willingness to savage, as I call it, the only ally we’ve got in that part of the world,” North said.

On other topics, North said:

  • Obama considers the death of Osama bin Laden to be “the game changer” in the region but it is “anything but clear that the outcome of what’s transpired in Egypt or what’s going on today in Syria or anything’s that’s happened in Bahrain or Yemen is going to end up in with positive change for the people.”
  • The president sees the war on terror coming to an end and that view will be reflected as the budget process moves forward. “I think you’re going to see dramatic cuts to America’s defense posture . . . If you abandon everything out there, pull out of Iraq in its entirety and cut down to nothing in Afghanistan over the course of the next three years, you could end up with Iranian hegemony over that entire part of the world. That’s not good for anybody and it’s certainly a threat for those allies we do have in the Persian Gulf.” Seems to me that’s probably the whole idea!
  • That the situation is Iran is not yet a second U.S. missile crisis but Iran will exploit every opportunity they have, making deals with China for missile hardware and North Koreans to get nuclear weapons equipment, technology and know-how. “There no doubt we have adversaries in that region.”
  • That Syria will not transform itself overnight. The regime’s goal is to maintain itself and they are doing everything they can to repress the people who want self-determination.

Strange Jobs

Strange fetishes

The lady was a Southern Baptist who attended services and taught Sunday School every week.
On one Sunday, an out of town acquaintance, a gentleman, was in the pew right behind her. He noted what a fine looking woman she was..

While they were taking up the collection, the man leaned forward and said, “Hey, how about you and I having dinner on Tuesday?”

“Why yes, that would be nice,” the lady responded.

Well, the gentleman couldn’t believe his luck. On Tuesday he picked the lady up and took her to the finest restaurant in that part of South Carolina . When they sat down, the gentleman looked over at her and suggested, “Would you like a cocktail before dinner?”

“Oh, no,” said our circumspect fine example of southern womanhood, “What ever would I tell my Sunday School class?”

Well, our gentleman was set back a bit, so he didn’t say much until after dinner, when he pulled out a pack of cigarettes and asked, “Would you like a smoke?”

“Oh my goodness no,” said the woman. “I couldn’t face my Sunday School class if I did?”

Well, our boy felt pretty low after that, so they left, got in his car and as he was driving the lady home, they passed the local Holiday Inn. He’d been morally rebuffed twice already, so he figured he had nothing to lose so he ventured forth with, “Ahhh .. Mmmm…. how would you like to stop at this motel?”

“Sure, that would be nice,” she said .

The gentleman couldn’t believe his ears, and did a fast u-turn right then and there, and drove back to the motel and checked in.

The next morning, after a wild and passionate night of the most incredible sex and perversions imaginable, the gentleman awoke first. He looked at the lovely Dixie darling lying there in the bed and with remorse thought, “What the hell have I done? He shook her awake and pleaded, “I’ve got to ask you one thing, whatever are you going to tell your Sunday School class?”

The lady said, “The same thing I always tell them. You don’t have to smoke and drink to have a good time.”

Okay, well, Political Tuesday, I guess….lots of politics in today’s issue, and here’s a bit more.  I’m not sure I see the same things that Mychal sees, but I appreciate his opinion, just the same.

When will Obama crack in public?
Posted: April 19, 2011
By Mychal Massie

At a time when many Americans can barely afford Burger King and a movie, Obama boasts of spending a billion dollars on his re-election campaign. Questioned at a recent appearance about the spiraling fuel costs, Obama said, “Get used to it” – and with an insouciant grin and chortle, he told another person at the event, who complained about the effect high fuel prices were having on his family, to “get a more fuel-efficient car.”

The Obamas behave as if they were sharecroppers living in a trailer and hit the Powerball, but instead of getting new tires for their trailer and a new pickup truck, they moved to Washington . And instead of making possum pie, with goats and chickens in the front yard, they’re spending and living large at taxpayer expense – opulent vacations, gala balls, resplendent dinners and exclusive command performances at the White House, grand date nights, golf, basketball, more golf, exclusive resorts and still more golf.

Expensive, ill-fitting and ill-chosen wigs and fashions hardly befit the first lady of the United States . The Obamas have behaved in every way but presidential – which is why it’s so offensive when we hear Obama say, in order “to restore fiscal responsibility, we all need to share in the sacrifice – but we don’t have to sacrifice the America we believe in.”

The American people have been sacrificing; it is he and his family who are behaving as if they’ve never had two nickels to rub together – and now, having hit the mother lode, they’re going to spend away their feelings of inadequacy at the taxpayers’ expense.

Obama continues to exhibit behavior that, at best, can be described as mobocratic and, at worst, reveals a deeply damaged individual. In a February 2010 column, I asked, “Is Obama unraveling?” I wrote that it was beginning to appear the growing mistrust of him and contempt for his policies was beginning to have a destabilizing effect on him.

At that time, I wrote that not having things go one’s way can be a bitter pill, but reasonable people don’t behave as he was behaving. He had insulted Republicans at their luncheon, where he had been an invited guest. I had speculated that was, in part, what had led him to falsely accuse Supreme Court justices before Congress, the nation and the world, during the 2010 State of the Union address.

It appeared, at that time, as if he were “fraying around the emotional edges.” That behavior has not abated – it has become more pronounced. While addressing the nation, after being forced to explain the validity of his unilateral aggression with Libya, America witnessed a petulant individual scowling and scolding the public for daring to insist he explain his actions.

But during an afternoon speech to address the budget/debt, he took his scornful, unstable despotic behavior to depths that should give the nation cause for concern. Displaying a dark psychopathy more representative of an episode of “The Tudors” television series, he invited Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to sit in the front row during his speech and then proceeded to berate both Ryan and Ryan’s budget-cutting plan. Even liberal Democrats were put off by the act. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough questioned the sanity of Obama’s actions.

Today, criticism is coming from all sides. A senior Democrat lawmaker said, “I have been very disappointed in [Obama], to the point where I’m embarrassed that I endorsed him. It’s so bad that some of us are thinking, is there some way we can replace him? How do you get rid of this guy?” (“Democrats’ Disgust with Obama,” The Daily Beast, April 15, 2011)

Steve McCann wrote: Obama’s speech “was chock full of lies, deceit and crass fear-mongering. It must be said that [he] is the most dishonest, deceitful and mendacious person in a position of power I have ever witnessed” (“The Mendacity of Barack Obama,” AmericanThinker.com, April 15, 2011).


McCann continued: “[His] performance was the culmination of four years of outright lies and narcissism that have been largely ignored by the media, including some in the conservative press and political class who are loath to call [him] what he is in the bluntest of terms: a liar and a fraud. That he relies on his skin color to intimidate, either outright or by insinuation [against] those who oppose his radical agenda only add to his audacity. It is apparent that he has gotten away with his character flaws his entire life, aided and abetted by sycophants around him.

With these being among the kinder rebukes being directed at Obama, and with people becoming less intimidated by his willingness to use race as a bludgeon, with falling poll numbers in every meaningful category and an increasingly aggressive tea-party opposition – how much longer before he cracks completely?

The coming months of political life are not going to be pleasant for Obama. Possessed by a self-perceived palatine mindset, that in his mind places him above criticism, how long before he cracks in public? Can America risk a man with a documented track record of lying and misrepresenting truth as a basic way of life, who is becoming increasingly more contumelious?

Another oldie, but goodie….you kinda see it coming, but it’s well written and eternally funny

THE DIFFERENCE IF YOU MARRY AN AUSTRALIAN GIRL

Three friends married women from different parts of the world…..

The first man married a Greek girl. He told her that she was to do the dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.

The second man married a Thai. He gave his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. The first day he didn’t see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done, and there was a huge dinner on the table.

The third man married a girl from Australia . He ordered her to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn’t see anything, the second day he didn’t see anything either but by the third day, some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye and his arm was healed enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher. He still has some difficulty when he pees.

Yeah, I know, more politics….sigh….but it’s what you guys are sending me.

Walter E. Williams, (born 1936 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a conservative American economist, commentator, and academic. He is the John M Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, as well as a syndicated columnist and author.

Can President Obama be defeated in 2012? No. He can’t.

I am going on record as saying that President Barak Obama will win a second term. The media won’t tell you this because a good election campaign means hundreds of millions (or in Obama’s case billions) of dollars to them in advertising. But the truth is, there simply are no conditions under which Barak Obama can be defeated in 2012.

The quality of the Republican candidate doesn’t matter. Obama gets reelected.

Nine percent unemployment? No problem. Obama will win.

Gas prices moving toward five dollars a gallon? He still wins.

The economy soars or goes into the gutter. Obama wins.

War in the Middle East? He wins a second term.

Americas role as the leading Superpower disappears? Hurrah for Barak Obama!

The U.S. government rushes toward bankruptcy, the dollar continues to sink on world markets and the price of daily goods and services soars due to inflation fueled by Obama’s extraordinary deficit spending? Obama wins handily.

You are crazy Williams. Don’t you understand how volatile politics can be when overall economic, government, and world conditions are declining? Sure I do. And that’s why I know Obama will win.

The American people are notoriously ignorant of economics. And economics is the key to why Obama should be defeated. Even when Obama’s policies lead the nation to final ruin, the majority of the American people are going to believe the bait-and-switch tactics Obama and his supporters in the media will use to explain why it isn’t his fault. After all, things were much worse than understood when he took office.

Obama’s reelection is really a very, very simple math problem. Consider the following:

1) Blacks will vote for Obama blindly. Period. Doesn’t matter what he does. It’s a race thing.

2) College educated women will vote for Obama. Though they will be offended by this, they swoon at his oratory. It’s really not more complex than that,

3) Liberals will vote for Obama. He is their great hope,

4) Democrats will vote for Obama. He is the leader of their party and his coattails will carry them to victory nationwide,

5) Hispanics will vote for Obama. He is the path to citizenship for those who are illegal and Hispanic leaders recognize the political clout they carry in the Democratic Party,

6) Union members will vote overwhelmingly for Obama. He is their key to money and power in business, state and local politics,

7) Big Business will support Obama. They already have. He has almost $1 Billion dollars in his reelection purse gained largely from his connections with Big Business and is gaining more everyday. Big Business loves Obama because he gives them access to taxpayer money so long as they support his social and political agenda,

8) The media love him. They may attack the people who work for him, but they love him. After all… to not love him would be racist,

9) Most other minorities and special interest groups will vote for him. Oddly, the overwhelming majority of Jews and Muslims will support him because they won’t vote Republican. American Indians will support him. Obviously homosexuals tend to vote Democratic. And lastly,

10) Approximately half of independents will vote for Obama. And he doesn’t need anywhere near that number because he has all of the groups previously mentioned. The President will win an overwhelming victory in 2012.

Arnold got his prescription for Viagra, and goes home to get ready for when his wife gets home. He calls her on the phone, and says, “I’ll be home in an hour. ” “Perfect, ” she replies. Arnold thinks about her statement and because the Doctor told him to take his Viagra an hour before, he takes the Viagra and waits. Well, and hour goes by, Arnold is ready to go, but no wife? She calls him on the phone and she says, “Traffic is terrible. I won’t be there for about an hour and a half. ” Arnold, frustrated, calls his Doctor for advice. “What should I do? ” he asks. The Doctor replied, “It would be a shame to waste it. Do you have a housekeeper around? ” “Yes” Arnold replied. “Well, maybe you can occupy yourself with her instead? ” said the Doctor. Arnold then replied with dismay, “But I don’t need Viagra with the housekeeper! “

Farmer Brown’s son George went to the big city to make his fortune. He became a stockbroker, and following the recent market crash, he found himself reduced to shining shoes for a living. At the same time, a run of unusually good weather resulted in an abundance of late hay on the farm. So, in this story, the farmer makes hay, while the son shines.

I recently received this email from one of my favorite, most adorable friend, fan, and funny girl.  She is not one to pull a punch and she jumped right in at me. 
When you say-
-WHY IS VIRTUALLY THE ENTIRE FRIGGIN’ COUNTRY STANDING AROUND WITH STUPID LOOKS ON THEIR FACES LIKE SHEEP IN LINE FOR THE SLAUGHTER???
As a single individual…we think…”who listens”…then we came up with the tea party & that’s not quite the answer either. There’s no dynamic leader wanting to run…you & I aren’t volunteering either so what is the answer? What do you suggest I do with the stupid look on my face? Voting wasn’t the answer either so is there a way that you’re keeping secret & the rest of us haven’t caught on?
I don’t really have a good answer for you my friend.  Trust me when I tell you that if I had a secret answer, I would be more than happy to make it un-secret as soon as I could.  The manner in which I chose to try is what you are reading right here.  We have 416 active subscribers (which is odd because it seems that no matter how many people subscribe, that number never changes) (anyway) we have another 150 (more or less) who read the site on line without subscribing.  So, here’s an audience of about 600 people who are, at least, exposed to the things that we think are important. It took a long time.  I’ve been doing Dragon Laffs in one form or another for over 10 years.  We had over 1000 subscribers, but lost a lot of them when we went to this format.  But, I’m rambling…. here’s what I decided to do (in answer to your question) intersperse my opinion with my humor and the humor of the campers who read Dragon Laffs.  We also include the comments and opinions of the campers, even when those opinions are nothing more than name calling.
It’s not a lot.
But it’s something.
Now, think if ALL of us found a pulpit, soapbox or park fountain to stand on and rant.  And then all those people who we are addressing went and got their own podium … electronic or otherwise…think of the noise we could make. 
Think of the attention we could draw.
Bigger things have started with smaller groups.
What else can you do?
I don’t know dear friend.  I do know that you have a wonderful imagination, strong integrity, honest and deep intelligence, and a loving and caring heart.  What can you do?
You can give a damn.
You can get your friends, family, and neighbors to give a damn.
You can get your friends, family, and neighbor’s friends, family, and neighbors to give a damn.
You can do your best to wipe the stupid sheep look off as many faces as possible. 
Let’s ALL try to give the sheep the heart of a dragon!!!

    Lynn I am not surprised at your “revelation”. I am saddened for your young veterans however and have always wondered at what price Israel maintains her freedom.

    Eventually all soldiers and all civilians tire of war, only the politicians seem to have an unquenchable thirst for it, probably because most of them never experience it.

    To them we are just facts, figures, dollar signs to be complained over. The ground grunts equipment is made by the lowest bidder, often a result of political backroom wrangling and palm greasing, generally 10 years behind the tech curve when its deployed, slow to get where its really needed and oft as not ill suited to the mission as those same politicians only want to spend money on one size fits all solutions. We are to be trotted out when politically expedient (and woe unto us if we cannot preform miracles on the political hacks time tables with ill suited equipment and under staffing), praised when it makes brownie points with the unwashed masses and to be short sheeted and bitched about the rest of the time. I have to assume this is probably the case in Israel as well. However in Israel you do not get the luxury we do of coming home from the war as the war there is right outside your front door everyday.

    Israel has existed in a virtual state of war ever since its inception ringed by its traditional enemies of countless millennia and unfortunately until a Moses parting the Red Sea sized miracle occurs in the area of Jewish & Arab relations I do not foresee it changing.

    It is important of people AND OUR GOVERNMENTS to recognize that the horrors of modern war and the injuries it inflicts are NOT just limited to physical injuries, there are also mental and emotional injuries as well. The sort that manifest themselves and drug and alcohol addiction as the vets seek to escape their own private internal piece of the war they will forever carry with them. How much worse must this be when you cannot even escape the external war for a moment!

    • lethalleprechaun says:

      yup you are right Hank he should, especially since I used this several weeks ago and pointed out that the sentiment was probably (fearfully) correct despite the wrong attribution.

      However I would ALSO point out that Impish posted it under the heading…
      “Yeah, I know, more politics….sigh….but it’s what you guys are sending me.”. That makes it pretty clear to me that he is saying its not his words or his post but a readers. We have asked repeatedly that readers check the accuracy and validity of the things you send us BEFORE sending them.
      Of course the majority of you are too lazy and/or trusting to do more than hit the forward button mumbling the “IDK I’m just forwarding what I got because I thought you’d want it” defense and then are aghast and insulted when we react the same way we would were it a flaming sack of dog poo on our front porch you left us.
      Occasionally of the 30 to 50 of these we get DAILY, one makes it into an issue be it because we forgot to check, didn’t check well enough or correctly (sometimes finding the correct search phrasing to get the hit you suspect is out there is like aiming with open sights at a nickel at 50 yards) we occasionally get fooled by one too, then finally last but not least sometimes life get in the way of DragonLaffs publishing and we cut a corner or 2 to get an issue out on time. Of course our resident against our will unwanted copy editor Mr. Murphy ensures that that is the day we post something like this and get caught.

      I hope you can continue to maintain perfection in everything you do Hank all the time….how about sending us the link to you shining beacon of blogging excellence so we may be in awe of your God like perfection? Oh! btw,’ Snopes’ is capitalized…oops there goes your glasshouse!

    ON A HAPPIER NOTE,HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. DYLAN!!!!!!!!

  4. lynn fux says:

    Hi Guys,This may not be popular but I must disagree with Mr. North about Israel. As you know I live in Israel ,raised 6 kids here and married a native who is a wounded soldier. My husband is of an age old enough to remember what life was like before the 1967 borders and very much wants the country to go back to them. You would probably be very shocked to know how many people want this. We can not afford to maintain the status quo,cost of living is too high and there is a terrible brain drain and the tole it takes on our youth is horrible. There are so many drug addicted soldiers(age 21+) living in places like India,Goa ,Nepal etc they send army shrinks there to live to try and help them.Living life with this kind of tension and stress is more than the human body can endure on a daily basis,The third highest tech country in the world can not keep maintaining a split personality any longer. As for “The Arab Spring”,well,Egypt may have a chance ,and then only if the fighting factions don’t turn on each other,all the other countries will get worse than what or who they set out to topple,too tribalistic and no real democratic infrastructures to begin with.
