Greetings Fellow Coffee Imbibers!
Wow! What a weekend! It rained but Saturday & Sunday! It started out mostly shower during the day Saturday but they got heavier and longer in duration as the day progressed to the point where we had steady gentle rains most of Saturday night and steady to seriously soaking rains Sunday. In total we achieved between two and a half to just over three inches of much needed rain in two days. The rain will not bust the region’s drought – Houston remains more than 22 inches below normal for the year – but coming as temperatures are beginning to cool down it should provide some significant short-term relief for yards, trees and wildlife.
A fighting force may travel on its stomach but those travels are kept in motion by coffee!
Wow 2 gratuitous coffee representations already is this a great issue or what!
Sue: I just don’t share the enthusiasm some new parents have for babies.
Barb: Yeah, I know what you mean.
Sue: Last week, I spent a whole afternoon with Janie and her two brats, and my Fallopian tubes tied themselves!
It features likenesses of both Impish and I along with our two most famous quotes and is named in honor of its requester.
Also please note that today is the VERY ABSOLUTE LAST DAY to purchase our Sept 11th Memorial Mug and help us make a donation to a worth cause helping the survivors and their families
Well at least English is his native language…I think
Bad news for us-
To save the economy, on September 29, 2011, the government will order the immigration department to start deporting old people (instead of undocumented) in order to lower Social Security and Medicare costs.
Old people are easier to catch and will not remember how to get back home!
I started crying when I thought of you…..Impish will see you on the bus. (right after it runs him over)
Starbucks CEO plans town hall on politics
Wrangling hurts economy, he says
Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz will host a “Conversation with America” telephone town hall on Tuesday. He is running ads in the New York Times and USA TODAY ahead of the event urging U.S. citizens to insist politicians end their hyper-partisan behavior
PORTLAND, Ore. — Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz changed how America drinks coffee. Now, he wants to change the political system.
The leader of the world’s largest coffee company said U.S. political leaders have created a “crisis of confidence” with their political wrangling that is wreaking havoc on the economy.
He said he wants to give a voice to all citizens by hosting a national telephone forum on Tuesday.
He’s also running ads in the New York Times and USA TODAY ahead of the event, featuring an open letter that urges Americans to participate in the forum and insist politicians end their hyper-partisan behavior. (See Letter below ~L.L.)
“We must send the message to today’s elected officials … that the time to put citizenship ahead of partisanship is now,” Schultz said in the letter.
The forum comes weeks after Schultz called on other CEOs to halt contributions to U.S. political campaigns until the nation’s leaders become financially disciplined and stop their political wrangling.
Dear Starbucks Friend and Fellow Citizen:
I love our country. And I am a beneficiary of the promise of America. But today, I am very concerned that at times I do not recognize the America that I love.
Like so many of you, I am deeply disappointed by the pervasive failure of leadership in Washington. And also like you, I am frustrated by our political leaders’ steadfast refusal to recognize that, for every day they perpetuate partisan conflict and put ideology over country, America and Americans suffer from the combined effects of paralysis and uncertainty. Americans can’t find jobs. Small businesses can’t get credit. And the fracturing of consumer confidence continues.
We are better than this.
Three weeks ago, I asked fellow business leaders to join me in urging the President and the Congress to put an end to partisan gridlock and, in its place, to set in motion an upward spiral of confidence. More than 100 business leaders representing American companies – large and small – joined me in signing a two-part pledge:
First, to withhold political campaign contributions until a transparent, comprehensive, bipartisan debt-and-deficit package is reached that honestly, and fairly, sets America on a path to long-term financial health and security. Second, to do all we can to break the cycle of economic uncertainty that grips our country by committing to accelerate investment in jobs and hiring.
In the weeks since then, I have been overwhelmed by the heartfelt stories of Americans from across the country, sharing their anguish over losing hope in the strongest and most galvanizing force of all – the American Dream. Some feel they have no voice. Others feel they no longer matter. And many feel they have been left behind.
We cannot let this stand.
Please join other concerned Americans and me on a national call-in conversation on Tuesday September 6th hosted by “No Labels,” a nonpartisan organization dedicated to fostering cooperative and more effective government. To learn more about the forum and the pledges, visit www.upwardspiral2011.org
America is at a fragile and critical moment in its history. We must restore hope in the American Dream. We must celebrate all that America stands for around the world. And while our Founding Fathers recognized the constructive value of political debate, we must send the message to today’s elected officials in a civil, respectful voice they hear and understand, that the time to put citizenship ahead of partisanship is now.
Yours is the voice that can help ignite the contagious upward spiral of confidence that our country desperately needs.
With great respect,
chief executive officer, Starbucks Coffee Company
Now I am philosophically opposed to fru~fru coffees that taste like candy and cost more than $5 a cup, the majority of which are consumed by liberals anyhow but I may just have to start ordering an occasional coffee at Starbucks to support what Howard Schultz is attempting to do here. (Indeed one of the ‘platform planks’ of Dragon~Leprechaun 2012 is a full and affordable pot (of coffee) in every house)
I have examined the site for upwardspiral2011.org and I find their 2 prong philosophy for attacking the problem spot on.
Prong One: Hit the politicians where they live and are most susceptible, in their wallets. Withhold ALL donations from ALL politicians until they start listen to and heeding the word and will of the people they are elected and sworn to represent.
Prong Two: Show the government that business is indeed capable of regenerating the economy and with out raising our already crushing debit level by doing all it can to create new jobs and new job opportunities on their own sans governmental interference before the close of 2011.
I urge you to visit www.upwardspiral2011.org today and take the personal pledge to withhold all contributions if you a person and additionally to create new jobs if you are a business owner. The country and economy you help save will be your own, not some ungrateful third world Anti~American terrorist harbor, no maybe about it!
Fair warning given!

Rules For Dating Impish’s Daughter
If you pull into my driveway and honk you’d better be delivering a package, because you’re sure not picking anything up.
You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter’s body, I will remove them.
I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don’t take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose his compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.
I’m sure you’ve been told that in today’s world, sex without utilizing a “barrier method” of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate, when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.
It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is “early.”
I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry. I might depending on just how upset she gets over you be forced to eat you.
As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don’t you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?
The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka – zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.
Do not lie to me. On issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless dragon of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and my good friend Lethal has access to five thousand acres of farm land plus knows the secret of why they never found Jimmy Hoffa’s body. Do not trifle with me.
Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy near Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car – there is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine.
A practical example of how the human mind works.
In the picture below, we will analyze what it represents to some groups of people.Read the review after the photo…
– For young men, it’s a nice ass. Only the most observant will define this as an ass crossing the street. The really observant will see the thong.
– For older men, it is a respectable woman with a nice ass crossing the street.
– The perverts will imagine her as a naked woman.
– The wise men will ponder the presence of mind of the photographer in the face of such beauty and gratitude that it was shared with humanity.
– For half of the women, this is an ordinary woman who should not have left home dressed that way.
– Children, the curious, and monks will probably notice a dog driving the taxi..
Don’t be alarmed, I didn’t see the dog either.
Thanks to several of you readers we have all seen the devastation wrought on Vermont and other parts of New England by Hurricane Irene. However this photo of the devastation suffered at a single local in New York City for me personally is by far the scariest of all!
Now I’m not endorsing Rick Perry or saying because he served that makes him superior to Obama, but I AM saying that these two photos speak volumes on their own and are worth some serious consideration and perspective taking.

Watch your back.
I’m going to kill you when I find you. Don’t think I won’t, I know where you and your parents live and I’ll need is one phone-call to kil ya’ll.
Re: Watch your back.
You don’t need to “find” me. My address is 9175 Kornbrust Circle, Lone Tree, CO 80124.
Luckily for you, there are daily DIRECT FLIGHTS from Heathrow to Denver . Here’s what you will need to do. After arriving at Denver and passing through customs, you will need to catch the shuttle to the rental car facility. Once in your rental car, take Pena Boulevard to I-225 south. Proceed on I-225 south to I-25 south. Proceed south on I-25 to Lincoln Avenue which is exit 193. Turn right (west) onto Lincoln . Proceed west to the fourth light, and turn left (south) onto Ridgegate Boulevard . Proceed south, through the roundabout to Kornbrust Drive . Turn left onto Kornbrust Drive and then take an immediate right onto Kornbrust Circle . I’m at 9175.
Just do me one favor. PLEASE wear body armor. I have some new ammunition that I want to try out, and frankly, close-quarter body shots without armor would feel almost unsporting from my perspective. That and the fact that I’m probably carrying a good 50 I.Q. points on you makes it morally incumbent upon me to spot you a tactical advantage.
However, being that you are a miserable, trembling coward, I realize that you probably are incapable of actually following up on any of your threats without losing control of your bowels and crapping your pants while simultaneously sobbing yourself into hyperventilation. So, how about this: why don’t you contact the main mosque here in Denver and see if some of the local musloids here in town would be willing to carry out your attack for you?
After all, this is what your “perfect man” mohamed did (pig excrement be upon him). You see, mohamed, being a miserable coward and a con artist, would send other men into battle to fight on his behalf. Mohamed would stay at the BACK of the pack and let the stupid, ignorant suckers like you that he had conned into his political cult do the actual fighting and dying. Mohamed would then fornicate with the dead men’s wives and children. You should follow mohamed’s example! Here is the contact info for the main mosque here in Denver :
Masjid Abu Bakr
Imam Karim Abu Zaid
2071 South Parker Road
Denver, CO 80231
I’m sure they would be delighted to hear from you. Frankly, I’m terribly disappointed that not a SINGLE musloid here in the United States has made ANY attempt to rape and behead me. But maybe I haven’t made myself clear enough, so let me do that right now.
I will NEVER, EVER, EVER submit to islam. I will fight islam with every fiber of my being for as long as I live because islam is pure satanic evil. If you are really serious about islam dominating the United States and the world, you are going to have to come through me. You are going to have to kill me. Good luck with that. And understand that if you or some of your musloid boyfriends do actually manage to kill me, The Final Crusade will officially commence five minutes later, and then, despite your genetic mental retardation, you will be made to understand with crystal clarity what the word “defeat” means. Either way, I win, so come and get it.
This taken from her website.
For some reason I am suddenly getting scads of emails asking to confirm my response to a musloid death threat. Yes, that is 100% real and accurate, and yes, that picture of a rosary-wrapped hand grasping a pink AR-15 is me. It is my very real Colt M4 that has been custom DuraCoated. Yes, yes, yes. Here is the original exchange from July 22 via YouTube. (shown above at the beginning) This guy is a musloid over in the U.K., hence the driving directions citing the daily direct flights from Heathrow to Denver,
From first contact to total capitulation: five hours forty-six minutes.
Why am I posting this stuff? Because I desperately want you people to see and understand that Western Civilization is collectively getting its ass kicked by the biggest bunch of gutless invertebrates on earth – who have the intellectual capacity to match.
Why are you cowering? Why are you afraid? My God, MAN UP!! STAND AND FIGHT!!!!

Re: Watch your back.
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL. B**ch are you real? Go get laid man. Go “turn the other cheek” and get some d**k to reduce your sexual frustration LMAO
1. I don’t know. Why don’t you follow up on your threat, show up here like a man, and after I have turned your head into a canoe, you can tell me whether or not I’m “real”.
2. Alas, we Christians have this thing called “sexual morality” and “the sacrament of marriage”. Fornicating with everything that moves including persons of the same gender, children, animals, corpses, small appliances and certain types of gardening implements is the domain of Islam.
3. While I understand that seeking out sodomy is what you have personally used over the years in order to “take the edge off” and temporarily forget that your father never loved you by sexually submitting to another man, and that your adult life has been a hopeless void of satanic hate-fueled despair, I prefer to pass my spare moments reading. I especially love reading about how Charles Martel utterly defeated the musloids at Tours. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
4. Oh, and by the way, don’t worry. No one is laughing at you.

MORAL OUTRAGE OF THE MONTH:
Alleged rape cover-up implicates multiple pastors, multiple churches
A woman alleges she was raped twice 13 years ago by a deacon of her church, Trinity Baptist in Concord, New Hampshire. Tina Anderson says the rapes resulted in her becoming pregnant when she was only 15. (That’s Anderson in the photo, in around 1997, before the assaults.)
The former deacon, Ernest Willis, has now been arrested on sexual assault charges.
When she told of the alleged rape and pregnancy, church officials “blamed her…forced her to stand in front of her congregation and apologize for getting pregnant, and write a letter asking Willis’ wife for forgiveness.”
As a pregnant 15-year-old, Anderson was whisked off to Colorado where, she says, she was forced to give up the baby for adoption.
Pastor Chuck Phelps had previously worked with the pastor of Tri-City Baptist Church in Westminster, Colorado, and that’s where the young Tina Anderson was sent.
At that time, the pastor of Tri-City Baptist Church was Matt Olson, who is now the president of Northland International University, a Baptist Bible college in Wisconsin whose motto is “preparing the next generation of servant-leaders for Great Commission living.” (That’s Olson in the photo on the right.)
Anderson says Olson made her write a letter to the wife of deacon Willis. “He made me sit down and write a letter of apology to the rapist’s wife for betraying her trust by seducing her husband.”
“Chuck Phelps and Matt Olson did a lot to systematically brainwash me,” says Anderson, “and make me believe this was my fault, to cover things and make people believe that it wasn’t Ernie’s baby, to make — even Chuck Phelps’ wife…asked me if I enjoyed it when it happened. And it’s not OK…. It’s not OK to make victims believe it’s their fault.”
[“Not OK” indeed. Amen, Tina. You go, girl!]
But Tina was actually “brainwashed” even before the alleged rapes committed by the church deacon. She says she was also silenced in an earlier case.
Anderson alleges that “Trinity Baptist Church members had told her not to report an earlier case in which she had been molested by a convicted sex offender who was also a member of the congregation.”
“They told me that to be a good Christian, I need to forgive, forget and move on in my life,” she said. “And they told me that a good Christian doesn’t press charges on another good Christian.”
[How many times have we heard that “forgive and forget” line from Baptist officials and pastors? How many more times will we hear it before Baptist officials change their ways and implement systems of accountability?]
“Growing up, Anderson said, a family member molested her and beat her and her brother with a belt to ‘show us who was boss.’ When the man was imprisoned for an unrelated sex crime, Anderson, then 13, said she felt comfortable enough to tell church members that she, too, had been a victim. But she said church members told her to keep quiet.”
“Anderson said Phelps directed her to visit the man in state prison to offer her forgiveness.”
“He said if I didn’t forgive him and give him forgiveness, then I would get bitter,” she said. “It’s just kind of how things at the church go. The woman is blamed for everything.”
“At the state prison in Concord, Anderson said she was forced to confront the man with her mother. ‘It was horrible,’ she said. ‘It was awful.’”
Over the next two years, Anderson says she confided in Willis, who was then a deacon at Trinity. He offered emotional support and Anderson began babysitting for two of his children.
“I had gotten very close to the (Willis) family,” Anderson said. “At Trinity, your whole world revolves around the church and the people who are in the church, so those are really the only people you have contact with.”
“But according to Anderson, Willis raped her twice when she was 15 – once at her home and once in the parking lot of a Concord business during a driving lesson. Those allegations are the basis of the criminal charges the police have filed against Willis. Several months later, Anderson realized she was pregnant.”
Anderson’s mother called pastor Chuck Phelps for help, and according to Anderson, Phelps removed her from Trinity’s Bible school. “I was told that I was a bad influence,” she said. “I was told I was going to have to go up before the church.”
Anderson went to stay at pastor Phelps’ house, where she reports that she wasn’t allowed to see any of her friends or talk to anybody. “I had to stay there until they shipped me away,” she says.
Once in Colorado, Anderson was home-schooled.
But before she left for Colorado, Anderson was made to stand before some 400 members of the Trinity Baptist congregation to ask forgiveness for getting pregnant….”I was completely humiliated,” she said. “I felt like my life was over.”
“At Phelps’s urging, Anderson said, she gave her baby girl up for adoption”
Anderson “continued to be home-schooled until what would have been her senior year, when she returned to Concord for about six months. She lived with her mother again, and attended Trinity, sitting in the same pews as Willis. Anderson’s mother remains a member of Trinity today.”
Phelps, who is now the senior pastor of Colonial Hills Baptist Church in Indianapolis, claims there was “no cover-up.” But according to his recent statement in the Concord Monitor, Phelps admits that he told the 15-year-old Anderson to “be responsible.”
“She knew this person was dangerous after the first time, but she continued to be around him… She needed to be responsible,” says Phelps.
[“Continued to be around him”? Anderson says that the second alleged rape occurred when Willis came to her house. And if Phelps was so convinced that Willis was “dangerous,” why did Phelps allow Willis to remain in the congregation with nothing more than a statement that he was unfaithful to his wife?]
Meanwhile, even as police are seeking to conduct an investigation, the current pastor of Phelps’ prior church, where this story began, sent an email to members of the congregation. As reported by the Associated Press, the email from Trinity Baptist’s current pastor, Brian Fuller, “contains two statements advising parishioners to remain silent.”
[Does that sound like “no cover-up” to you? To me it sounds more like “ongoing cover-up.”]
To me it sounds like interfering in a police investigation and conspiracy after the fact, both criminal offenses!

Why isn’t Phelps being sentenced too for aiding and abetting a rapist, as well as interfering in a Police investigation & harming a minor? Why has he not been denounced by what ever passes for a governing council of Baptist Ministers and defrocked?
Why do I feel like I need a Silkwood shower and to convert to Buddhism or Druidism after reading this?
