Good Morning Campers.
A day of rest and honey-dos.
Unless, of course, you’re working today (like me) then it’s just another day of the week. Oh well, someone has to keep the world safe for democracy…
I’m just saying, someone has to, cause it sure as hell ain’t us! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH OUR GOVERNMENT???? I’m so sick and damn tired of these partisan games that these rich bastards are playing with our lives. I read the headlines today that the budget talks are stalled out AGAIN. Folks, these aren’t budget talks. The year is 75% over! The NEW (fiscal) year starts October first. And they haven’t even finished fighting over THIS year!
This is just wrong!
It’s time we, the people, threw the bullshit flag!
It’s time to say, “Look. We elected you! We PAY you! Get your asses in their and fix this and don’t come out until it’s done! Or don’t bother coming back!” That’s exactly what I would do if one of my employees wouldn’t do their job. And make no mistake, THESE CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS, JUDGES, EVEN THE PRESIDENT, ALL ELECTED OFFICIALS ARE OUR EMPLOYEES! THEY work for US!
And it’s about time that we, the people, hired some people that are worth a damn, because the service in this campground SUCKS!
I promised myself that I was going to have a nice, enjoyable day at work. Not get upset. Keep a smile on my face…
Not even six a.m. and I already blew that one.
So, before my ranting burns my office up and the smoke alarm wakes up Lethal, this dragon is going to go to work to make my dollar and tell all you wonderful campers….
I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”
And I use that line all the time…. lol.
Nursery Rhymes, not the way I remember them…

And when the price of pork went up,
She shot the little bastard.

A mother complained to her doctor about her daughters strange eating habits. “All day long she lies in bed and eats yeast and car wax. What will happen to her?”
What a shame these cartoons are. The end of an era. As someone who’s grown up always wanting to be an astronaut, it is like pushing a knife through my heart to think that the United States of America is getting out of the space business. What an abysmal mistake that is. The space program has always paid more in dividends then it ever cost. So much of our modern technology has been a direct spin-off of studies made in trying to get further out in space. Just one for instance…miniaturization. Does anyone doubt that one of the driving forces of the amazing cell phones, computers, micro processing that we are enjoying now is the space program? Making more from less. Maybe we’ll smarten up in the future.

Her father shot it dead.
Now it goes to school with her,
Between two hunks of bread.
I ain’t sayin’ nuthin’!
Okay, yes I am. We notice the exact same thing here at Dragon and Leprechaun Laffs Enterprises. How about some comments on our content? Let’s get some good discussions going here. Yes, I know I misspell words….but is that really the most important part? Let’s talk!

Stupid Jill forgot the pill
And now they have a son.

Said Simple Simon to the pie man,
‘What have you got there?’

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the kings’ horses,
And all the kings’ men.

For breakfast again.
Hey diddle, diddle, the cat took a piddle,
All over the bedside clock.
The little dog laughed to see such fun.
Then died of electric shock.

Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good, she was very, very good.
But when she was bad……….

I was extraordinarily impressed with LL’s Last Word yesterday. What a collection of things that make you go…”WTF?!” I know we all probably had ones that hit you harder than others, but the one that got my goat more than any other was us paying $770 million to refurbish Mosques….not even Mosques in our country, which would be bad enough, but Mosques over seas! That’s insulting!
Here’s a man we NEED to have run for president….I love reading and listening to him speak.
Greetings to our constituents, fellow Floridians, and all Americans, here we are for another weekly update. There is only one word that describes the past week: appalling.
It was appalling to hear the President of the United States truly threaten our nation’s senior citizens and Military Veterans/Retirees. Furthermore, the blatant lie that 80% of Americans want their taxes raised is beyond unconscionable.
I believe we are headed towards the ultimate ideological clash in America. There is a widening chasm which has developed between those who believe in principled fiscal policies and those desiring the socialist bureaucratic nanny-state. An unfortunate aspect to this is the complicity of a mainstream media which does not report facts, but rather ideological bias. This clash will determine the future and legacy of our Constitutional Republic.
I know who wins in the end, but it is going to be one heck of a fight.
This week the House GOP shall vote on a plan that will enable us to protect the full faith and credit of the United States but also tackle the long-term fiscal viability of our nation. The plan is summarized by the concept of “Cut, Cap, and Balance.” Our Congressional office issued a statement on Friday which explains the legislation, of which I am an original cosponsor – you can click here to view.
Neither I nor any other reasonable person wants to see the United States default on its debt interest payments and threaten a potential rise in our interest rates. I do not want to see my country devolve into the European situation played out in Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, or Spain (PIIGS). However, now is the time to get our fiscal house in order by implementing spending control measures which will begin to turn around our economic ship of state.
We must have equitable and immediate spending cuts to our non-defense discretionary spending. We must cap federal government spending as per the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), currently near 25%, down between 18-20% putting it in line with revenues. And lastly, we must have a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution which will force us to prioritize and operate within our means, similar to American households and many state governments.
As for President Barack Obama, he has no such plan. He has never had a plan, just words, just speeches. His Budget for Fiscal Year 2012 failed 0-97 in the United States Senate. Speaking of the Senate, it has been over 800 days since the Senate, under Democrat control, has passed a budget.
President Obama has added some $4.5 trillion to our national debt in less than three years. President Obama has produced record deficits, the negative difference between revenues and spending, of $1.42 trillion, $1.29 trillion, and an estimated $1.65 trillion for each year since taking office.
The unemployment rate under President Obama is a problem of epic proportions, national (9.2%), black community (16.2%), and among veterans (approx 12%). This comes from someone who told us his almost trillion-dollar stimulus would keep unemployment in America under 8%. As well, the almost $2 trillion Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has been a disaster, and the worst is yet to come.
This has nothing to do with race (unfortunately my colleague from Texas, Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee believes so), and it has everything to do with an economic vision which is anathema to our free market/free enterprise system…an economic vision which has failed at every turn.
And all we hear from the President is talk about “shared sacrifice,” “tax the rich,” and “increase revenues by tax hikes.” It was just December 2010 that President Obama and the Democrats extended the Bush era tax rates for two years…now less than a year later they are FLIP-FLOPPING!
The problem is, there is no confidence and certainty in the fiscal vision emanating from Washington D.C. and hence revenues and receipts are down. We are not setting the conditions or creating an environment for economic and job growth. For all of you, that is what has to change, and that is where I am committed to seeing change and not the empty rhetorical doublespeak of 2008.
I suppose the President forgot that 47% of wage earning households in America do not pay federal income taxes.
In the area of foreign policy, the United States has officially recognized the Libyan rebels as the “legitimate” government of Libya. Now, I am just a simple fella from down South, but I recall a previous Democrat President recognizing a bunch of undefined ideological zealots called the Taliban…and we all see how that ended up!
The voices of the American people who want sound fiscal, taxation, and regulatory policy need to be heard this week. I am issuing a “call to action” – let the White House, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid hear how you feel. Are there REALLY 80% of Americans who want higher taxes?
I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool.
Look at this too…
It’s On!… Rep. Allen West Confronts Lying “Vile & Despicable” Leftist Wasserman Schultz
Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, July 19, 2011, 6:21 PM
After Rep. Allen West left the House floor today, lying leftist hack Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz attacked him and lied about the Republican plan. A disgruntled Allen West sent out this response to the vile DNC chair.
Via the Politico:
From: Z112 West, Allen
Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 04:48 PM
To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie
Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz
Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!
I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.
You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!
Steadfast and Loyal
Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)
Look for vile Wasserman Schultz to play the victim card in 3… 2… 1…
UPDATE: Rep. West stood by his comments.
Via FOX News:
West told Fox News that Wasserman Schultz’s comments were part of a “pattern” of “hate,” and he felt that she “disrespected” him in her House floor speech.
“You don’t need to call me out on your time to speak on the floor,” West said. “Focus on what is your plan for the debt ceiling.”
House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., whom West copied on his email, defended the tea party-backed freshman.
