And that should JUST about cover my feelings on witty opening comments today.

After enduring a surprise annual apartment inspection by the property management company last week, having 48 hours to put the place back into white glove inspection order for a surprise weekend Mother In Law visit and accomplishing all the pre Thanksgiving required things plus it being the eve of a holiday travel trip for us I’m not really uber happy or witty.

To make it even worse I will be leaving at 05:30 and driving about four and a half hours so I will not even get to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Down here in Texas they have “deer camps” where you go and spend the weekend “supposedly” hunting deer (if you check the time spent hunting versus time spent doing everything else BUT hunting I think hunting comes in at maybe 5 to 10% of the time spent). Many of these ‘deer camps” and “deer blinds” or “deer stands” are nicer than some of the Bachelor Officers Quarters I have lived in. This next cartoon sort of reminded me of that.

Remember now this is someplace you go roughly 6 week a year to HUNT deer

image

Finally in the right spots in Texas and the right weather conditions it can get pretty darn chilly just sitting still waiting for a deer to wander by and get (usually accidentally in my experience down here) shot. These folks have come up with  a solution for staying warm while you wait for that deer to oblige you.

Blame this on Beamrider! Apparently he’s misplaced his tinfoil beanie again.

Driving home from her office one summer day, a woman noted that there were four places within two blocks of her home where she could stop and buy a five-cent glass of iced tea.
Each little stand had two or three youngsters behind it, all eager to serve any customer who came their way.
During the next two weeks, the woman managed to stop at each of the stands to encourage the entrepreneurs.
In each case the tea was very good.
Small talk revealed that all the youngsters were selling tea made by their mothers, who used tea leaves and real lemons in making the tea.
One day the woman discovered that only one stand was operating.
Behind it was the new kid on the block.
She stopped and ordered a glass of tea. It was served in a paper cup and it cost 10 cents.
Some conversation brought out the fact that the young man’s father was a lawyer who specialized in mergers, which had inspired the boy to buy out his competitors, bartering with baseball cards, marbles, and stuff he had laying around in his garage.
His first act, he explained, was to raise the price of the iced tea, and cut costs.
He was using a powdered tea mix from the supermarket, he said, which eliminated buying real lemons as well as the bother of squeezing them or putting them in the juicer. He didn’t have to brew real tea either, he pointed out. He had plans to cut costs further, he said, and with his competitors out of the market, he expected sales to grow.
Intrigued, the woman made a half dozen more stops at the stand and became aware that the tea was getting weaker and weaker.
One day the young man confessed that sales were dropping and he attributed this to the fact that he was using less and less of the powdered-tea mix.
Then one day he went out of business, as attempts to turn things around failed.
The moral of this story is: Honest tea is the best policy

 

 

When

It gets to be this time of year, the holiday season and that’s when I truly start missing being in New England. The foods during the holidays for my money were far superior there to Texas. A mean spirited friend in Montana who shares my opinion of this time of year in revenge for my calling him excitedly to share the news I had finally after 5 years of looking hard scored some broccoli rabe which he cannot obtain up there sent be the following (drool bibs should be deployed now):

An Italian Thanksgiving :

ITALIAN THANKSGIVING

When I was a kid growing up, Thanksgiving was a day to reflect on what we had to be thankful for and to see my family together.

After this peaceful moment, of no one screaming at each other, it was time to eat! ANDIAMO!

Now Italians do it all little bit different than the rest, but what else is new.

First we start with:

ANTIPASTO

image

then LASAGNA or

image

MANICOTTI (depending on what you had last year) with

image

MEAT IN THE GRAVY

image

then SOUP

image

Now we get to the Meal:

TURKEY

image

STUFFING

image

ROASTED POTATOES

image

BROCCOLI RABE

image

and/or ESCAROLE

image

ROASTED RED PEPPERS

image

SAUTEED MUSHROOMS

image

SAUTEED STRINGBEANS (picked from the vine in the backyard garden)

image

THE BREAD (that nonna made)

image

and GOD FORBID YOU FORGET THE SALAD!!

(picked from the backyard garden with homemade wine vinegar)

image

To wash it all down, we had:

HOMEMADE WINE

image

and 7 UP (IN THE GLASS BOTTLE)

image

Then after the men had a 2-hour nap and the woman cleaned all the dishes, we had:

CHESTNUTS

image

MIXED NUTS

image

FRESH FRUIT

image

DRIED FIGS

image

and FINOCCHIO

image

Then we started the dessert:

ITALIAN COOKIES

image

SFOGLIATELLE

image

CANNOLIS’

image

and ITALIAN PASTRY (just in case we missed something)

image

During this feast we enjoyed a nice EXPRESSO with

image

MARIE BRIZARD ANISETTE or

image

ROMANA SAMBUCA

image

Then after that we needed a little something for DIGESTIVO

We went straight for the BRIOSCHI!!!

Turkey Primavera

image_thumb14

From: Campbell’s Kitchen

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

Serves: 4

Here’s a quick and inventive way to use leftover turkey, that gives you meat, pasta and vegetables all together in one easy-to-make dish.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 3/4 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Chicken Stock

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 clove garlic, minced

2 cups broccoli florets

2 medium carrots, sliced (about 1 cup)

1/2 cup green or red pepper cut into 2-inch long strips

1 small onion, chopped (about 1/4 cup)

2 cups cubed cooked turkey or chicken

1/2 of a 1-pound package spaghetti, cooked without salt and drained

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

Stir the cornstarch and 1/4 cup broth in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth.

Heat the remaining broth, garlic powder, broccoli, carrots, pepper and onion in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender-crisp.

Stir in the cornstarch mixture. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens. Stir in the turkey and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Add the spaghetti and cheese and toss to coat.

Recipe Tips:

Time-Saving: You can use 3 cans (4.5 ounces each) Swanson® Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained, for the turkey in this recipe.

Works well with julienned ham slices too. Save time and use a bag of Frozen California Blend Veggies (Broccoli Carrots Cauliflower) when making this .

Give it an Asian twist by substituting sliced on a bias scallions for the onion, adding fresh grated Ginger when adding the garlic & skipping the grated Parmesan cheese adding Soy Sauce to taste to the corn starch mixture instead before it hits the pan. If you are using Ham for the Asian style go easy with the Soy Sauce or you’ll wind up overly salty

And now from our ‘Some people just have no respect of the act or the police” file…

Couple accused of getting sexy in back of police car

A constable’s deputy in Porter arrested two people for dealing prescription drugs at a Whataburger along Highway 59 Monday, the Montgomery County Police Reporter wrote, and then had to order them to stop fooling around in the back of his car on the way to booking.

The deputy responded to a 911 call at the fast food restaurant after a friend of the couple’s passed out drunk at 2 in the afternoon.

According to the report, Tina Marie Arie, 44,had prescription bottles containing Hydrocodone and Soma. Howard Keith Windham, 30, and the passed-out friend — who was taken to the hospital — also had pills in their pockets.

Arie and Windham were arrested for possession of a controlled substance and allegedly misbehaved in the back of the police car on their way to booking, according to site:

The deputy noticed the pair moving around in the back of the patrol car. He looked in his rearview mirror and could no longer see Tina Arie. She told the deputy she had her head on Howard Windham’s lap because she was tired.

However, when the deputy pulled over to the side of the road, he could see that despite both parties being handcuffed behind their backs, Windham’s pants were unfastened and Arie was servicing his exposed genitalia.

The deputy ordered them to cease the sexual contact and then continued driving to the jail. There were no additional charges.

My guess is they realized they might not get any for a while and took it as their last opportunity, they were heavily into the BDSM scene and got excessively turned on by the zip ties and the cage in the cruiser…. or they saw it as a chance to cross a line off their bucket lists.

“Wild Bill’s Renounce Your Citizenship Program”

Finally a Liberal program I can get behind whole heartedly and 150%!

America love it, support it, help work to make it better or get the bloody hell out of it you sodden towel head lovin’ whiny Communist arsed Liberal whanker!

 

Pissed OFf BlogToday’s Last Bloody Word comes from regular contributor Paul Bader. It’s been a goodly while since I ahve ascended my soapbox and ranted because as was pointed out to me by several of you I was largely preaching to the choir when I regularly did. Today however I just can’t help myself, Paul’s send just basically pushed all my buttons.

This is sure to piss you off as well and is going to be a little lengthy so you might want to refill your coffee, take a couple preemptive pain relievers for the stress headache this is sure to cause and grab a couple TUMS, Rol-Aids or what ever other antacid you use for what its going to do to your stomach.

They subject line of the e-mail Paul sent was entitled” “Your rights are suspended.”

 

NAGRbanner

Dear PAUL,
In June, 2009, the National Association for Gun Rights first broke this incredible tale out of Shreveport, Louisiana.
At the time, no other gun rights organization had touched the story. But when we tracked down the victim for an interview, we couldn’t believe what we heard, and we immediately sent out a nationwide alert.
The story went viral overnight.
If this tale of government abuse moves you, send it to a friend or family member to get the word out.


Welcome to Shreveport: Your rights are now suspended.

According to Cedric Glover, mayor of Shreveport, Louisiana, his cops “have a power that [. . .] the President of these Unites States does not have”: His cops can take away your rights.
And would you like to guess which rights he has in mind?
Just ask Shreveport resident Robert Baillio, who got pulled over for having two pro-gun bumper stickers on the back of his truck — and had his gun confiscated.
While the officer who pulled him over says Baillio failed to use his turn signal, the only questions he had for Baillio concerned guns: Whether he had a gun, where the gun was, and if he was a member of a pro-gun organization.
No requests for a driver’s license, proof of insurance, or vehicle registration — and no discussion of a turn signal.
Accordingly, Baillio told the officer the truth, which led the police officer to search his car without permission and confiscate his gun.
However, not only does Louisiana law allow residents to drive with loaded weapons in their vehicles, but Mr. Baillio possessed a concealed carry license!
What does such behavior demonstrate, other than transparent political profiling — going so far as to use the infamous Department of Homeland Security report on “Americans of a rightwing persuasion” as a how-to guidebook, no less?
Mr. Baillio made no secret of his political affiliations: An American flag centers a wide flourish of pro-freedom stickers and decals on his back windshield.
In fact, when Baillio asked the officer if everyone he pulls over gets the same treatment, the officer said no and pointed to the back of his truck.
Baillio phoned Mayor Glover to complain about this “suspension of rights” only to find that his city’s morbidly obese “commander in chief” was elated at the story: According to Glover, Baillio got “served well, protected well, and even got a consideration that maybe [he] should not have gotten.”
Thankfully, Mr. Baillio recorded a good bit of that phone call. You can watch a video with the transcriptions here. I’ve reproduced a chunk of the call below:

Baillio: (in the context of being asked about the presence of a gun) Well, I answered that question honestly, and he disarmed me.
Glover: Which would be an appropriate and proper action, sir. The fact that you gave the correct answer — it simply means that you did what it is you were supposed to have done, and that is to give that weapon to the police officer so he could appropriately place it in a place where it would not be a threat to you, to him, or to anyone in the general public.
[. . .]
Glover: My direction to you is that, had you chosen not to properly identify the fact that you had a weapon and directed that officer to where that weapon was located; had you been taken from the vehicle, and the officer, in the interest of his safety, chose to secure you in a safe position, and then looked, found, and determined that you did, in fact, have a weapon…then, sir, you would have faced additional, [inaudible], and more severe criminal sanctions.
Baillio: So what you’re saying is: I give up all my rights to keep and bear arms if I’m stopped by the police: Is that correct?
Glover: Sir, you have no right, when you have been pulled over by a police officer for a potential criminal offense [which would be what?! – DB] to stand there with your weapon at your side in your hand [Baillio’s weapon was nowhere near his side or his hand, and Glover knew that. – DB] because of your second amendment rights, sir. That does not mean at that point your second amendment right has been taken away; it means at that particular point in time, it has been suspended.

Will Grigg from ProLibertate, an excellent freedom blog, has this to say:

According to Glover, a police officer may properly disarm any civilian at any time, and the civilian’s duty is to surrender his gun — willingly, readily, cheerfully, without cavil or question.
From Glover’s perspective, it is only when firearms are in the hands of people other than the state’s uniformed enforcers/oppressors that they constitute a threat, not only to the public and those in charge of exercising official violence but also to the private gun owner himself.

NAGR spoke with Mr. Baillio, and he told us that he’s in the process of securing the official procedures and codes for firearm handling and private property confiscation for the Shreveport police department.
So far, the city has been half-heartedly cooperating with him.
“I felt sick,” Baillio told NAGR. “My uncles didn’t die for this country so I could surrender my rights like a wimp. I felt terrible. I was just thinking of all that my family has done for freedom in this nation — including dying — and here they are disarming me at a traffic stop.”
What to do?

  1. Read Luke’s commentary here, and participate in the discussion by leaving a comment.
  2. Send this around. This kind of behavior cannot go unchecked.
  3. Call Mayor Glover’s office to complain: (318) 673-5050.

I’ll leave you with one last consideration. As a licensed firearms instructor in charge of a hundred different students every month, I’m often asked if citizens should voluntarily inform police officers of the presence of a firearm during a routine traffic stop.
While different states have different laws, my answer for Colorado citizens is an emphatic “No”: Colorado law doesn’t require you to volunteer that kind of information, and this case in Louisiana proves why, if at all possible, you should never invite trouble by doing so.
For Liberty,

Dudley Brown

First if you are not already enraged just by reading this article I urge you to read the materials provided in the first link (  Will Grigg from ProLibertate, an excellent freedom blog, has this to say: ) after reading about how the confiscation of guns without just cause is only the TIP of the turd pile of flagrant abuses in Shreveport you will be.  While I’m not a member of the NAGR ( I am a lifetime member of the NRA) I have to admit after this I am strongly considering joining now.

I have two question brought to mind by this but first I’ll answer the one I suspect is running around inside of your head…namely, “How the hell can this be happening in the United States of America?”

The answer is incredibly simple and in 2 parts:

A. Cedric Glover, mayor of Shreveport, Louisiana is a member of  Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Mayors Against Illegal Guns was founded by activist anti-gun billionaire and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. Both Democrats are  noted lickspittles and laps dogs for  President Obamanation. Bloomberg is the largest funder of the group, having contributed $3 million.

Despite its very misleading name, this national group of anti-gun mayors has lobbied Congress against national reciprocity of state Right-to-Carry permits, against much-needed reform of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), for regulating gun shows out of existence, and for repealing the Tiahrt Amendment that protects the privacy rights of law-abiding gun owners and limits disclosure of sensitive firearm trace data to protect law enforcement personnel and protect lawful gun manufacturers from bogus lawsuits.  http://www.nraila.org/Issues/FactSheets/Read.aspx?id=254&issue=011

B.  Cedric Bradford Glover (born August 9, 1965) is the Democratic mayor of Shreveport, Louisiana — the first African American to hold the position. The Shreveport Police Department under his administration would seem to be flagrant in its disregard of the rights and laws it is sworn to uphold and protect the people with and by. I base this statement on the additional issues bought to light

Are you sensing a theme here yet? No? Well maybe this little tidbit will help, MAIG boasts a membership of some 600 Mayors. I did a random check of 30 Mayors on the list or 5% of the overall listed membership. Guess what? ALL of those Mayors ALL of those mayors I picked at random are Democrats!

Seeing the light now? I thought so!

Now for the two questions that came to my mind when I read this, again the answers if you think about the questions are startlingly easy to come up with.

1.) If this occurred in 2009 why the hell are most of us just finding out about this NOW? Where was the damned media with their “the public has a right to know!” mantra? Where was the  news coverage? Why were they not whipping up a self-righteous frenzy over this possible usurpation of a man’s civil rights by the government? Isn’t this a news producer’s wet dream?

Oh! THAT’S RIGHT! We live in a world of a liberal agenda media who fawn all over the Obamanation! Liberal Agenda = Democrat = Gun Control. The public only has a right to know what they want us to and only in the manner they chose to spin it! It is no longer a case of “All the news that is fit to print”  instead we have “All the news that fits our agenda gets into print.” Gone are the days of Walter Cronkite looking us in the eye from the television screen and saying with conviction “And THAT’S the way it is…” Now instead the unspoken message from the eyes is “Drink deeply of our Kool-Aid. Believe only what we tell you. There is no bias in our reporting because the truth is subjective and is only what we say it is,   there cannot be another side or point of view there is only our agenda and our truth.”

DUH! THAT’S WAY we have to rely on bloggers to spread the word of these travesties of justice and trampling of civil rights!

Speaking of the trampling of a man’s civil rights, to say NOTHING about what was CLEARLY a case of profiling that brings me to my second question…

2.) Where the hell is the ACLU and why are they so deathly silent on this when it is so CLEARLY the EXACT sort of thing they were founded to defend against and be a watchdog for?

Oh! Wait again! THAT’S right! The ACLU is no longer concerned with being the watch dog its was envisioned to be over ALL civil rights, just the ones that grab major headlines, press coverage and promote the Liberal/Democratic touchy feely politically correct ones! Even at the cost of common sense social unrest, moral decay or  that might be detrimental to our National Security or National solvency. DUH again!

Now the answers to my two questions might have raised a second one in your minds, “Lethal if the media is deliberately concealing news like this by not reporting it and the ACLU is not protecting us from Governmental abuses of our civil rights WHO IS protecting us when it comes to our rights?”

Well readers I’ll tell you. When it comes to your Second Amendment rights you have organizations like the NRA- the National Rifle Association and its legislative arm the Institute For Legislative Action. You have the NAGR- the National Association for Gun Rights and I am sure a host of others.

However their primary focus is on serving their special interests ( read “special” as limited scope) When it comes to protecting the vast majority of your civil rights you have people like Robert Baillio of Shreveport with his pistol, (presumably) DragonLaffs reader Paul Bader with his pistol, Impish standing watch in Indiana with his, me here in Houston with my small arsenal and of course there is you with yours.

YOU DON’T HAVE A GUN??!! Given the way things are going the the likelihood of Obama bowing before the UN, kissing their ass and signing away you gun rights don’t you think it’s high time you got one?

Gun Control Armed we can require explanations and justifications from those whom we elect over us and as well as make them mindful they serve only at our discretion and pleasure. The first act of any government in subjugating a populous is to take away all their weapons and their ability to resist. The choice is yours, exercise your Second Amendment right to bear arms, be the protector of your own family and both your and their rights, or be one of the sheeple at the mercy of the liberal government’s politically correct socialist, rights stripping wolves.

Ponder that while you’re ruminating on the things you are thankful for this Thanksgiving!

P.S.: As I sit here placing the finishing touches on this issue prior to uploading it the fact does not escape me that it seem you managed to get a Thanksgiving Special out of me anyway!

About lethalleprechaun

I believe in being the kind of man who, when my feet touch the floor in the morn', causes the Devil to say "BUGGER ME! HIMSELF IS UP!" ======== I'm a White Married Heterosexual who fervently believes in the war(s) we are fighting, the Second Amendment which I plan on defending with my last breath and my last round of ammunition as well as Arizona's stringent law on Immigration and the need for the border wall. I'm a right of center Con-centrist with Tea Party & Republican sympathies who drives an SUV. I am a Life Time Member of the NRA, a Charter Member of the Patriots' Border Alliance and North American Hunters Association. If there is a season for it and I can shoot one I'll eat it and proudly wear its fur. I believe PETA exists solely to be a forum for Gays, Vegetarians, Hollywood snobbery to stupid to get into politics and Soybean Growers. The ACLU stopped protecting our civil liberties sometime after the 1960s and now serves its own bigoted headline grabbing agenda much in the same way as the Southern Poverty Law Center. I am ecstatic that WE the PEOPLE finally got mad enough to rise up and take back the Government from WE the ENTITLED and reverently wish the Liberals would just get over the loss and quit whining/protesting all the time. After all they're just reaping what they've sown. I am Pro-choice both when it comes to the issue of abortion AND school prayer. I believe in a government for the people, by the people which represents and does the people's will. Therefore I an Pro States rights and mandatory term limits but against special interest group campaign contributions and soft money. I think that sports teams who allow their players to sit or take a knee during the National Anthem should be boycotted until the message is received that this is not acceptable behavior for role models for children. I believe Congressional salaries should be voted on bi-annually by the people they represent and not by themselves. I think Congress should be subject to every law they pass on the populace including any regarding Social Security or Healthcare. Speaking of the Healthcare bill (or con job as I see it) I hope Trump will overturn it and set things back to normal. I oppose the building of an Mosque or ANY Islamic center at or within a 10 mile radius of Ground Zero in New York. I will fight those in favor of this until hell freezes over and then I will continue to fight it hand to hand on the ice. Further I think the ban on immigrants from certain nations known to harbor and promote terrorism is a justified measure, at least until we can come up with better methods of vetting and tracking those non citizens we allow in the country. We did not inflict this measure on them those who refuse to point out, denounce or fight radical religious terrorism brought this upon themselves.

    Impish,

    A.) On the advice of council, I have NO COMMENT on this news report and NO IDEA what you are blathering on about.

    B.) AS YOUR COUNCIL OF RECORD let me offer you some serious advice on how to avoid wearing an orange jumpsuit for Christmas and in general…KEEP YOUR MASSIVE PIE HOLE SHUT ON PUBLIC FORUMS REGARDING ANY AND ALL OF YOUR BUSINESS VENTURES!!

    C.) As a side note while I’m thinking of it, though I cannot imagine what caused me to think about it, you need to increase your budget for subterranean lighting so as to allow for the use of LED bulbs. They are not only more power efficient but do not explode when hit showering hot filaments and metallic pieces all over which could hypothetically cause small fires to break out in any dry and/or flammable material(s) you might be storing subterranean.

  2. Great, great, great issue,
    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, mine was near my birthday (Oct.11)

  3. I briefly considered marriage proposal to the guy who owns the Texas deer stand. But, I discarded it for two reasons.

    As cool as the place is, I didn’t see a bathroom, and his beard …. that’s a no-go. 😉

    Great issue Lethal, and exceptional content in the last word.

    Happy Thanksgiving to the Dragon Laffs team. 🙂
