Wow one month down and 11 left to go in 2012 already! How time flies and the price of coffee shamelessly soars!
I have decided to fight flights of fancy (Impish having any legit claim to “The Year of the Dragon”)
with hard facts, the fact that Ireland has a National Museum dedicated to venerating meself and me brethren Leprechauns.
Since when it comes to this subject Impish is about as logical as a liberal I doubt I’ll have much success but at least it will help me poor BP stay a wee bit lower until be gets this lunacy out of his system.
For those of you who cannot read it the tag line at the bottom reads:
“Because a National Heritage Museum is so much more impressive than usurping a tired old worn out Chinese Lunar Calendar Year and lots less (legal) trouble too!”
Besides, how much profit can you make selling rubes a calendar once every 12 years as compared to a museum gift shop open daily?

Mitt’s Income vs. Your Income
How long would it take the GOP candidate to earn what you make in a year?

Mitt Romney released his 2010 tax return on Monday. His total income for the year was listed as $21.6 million, more than one-half of which came from capital gains. How does that stack up against your income? Enter your annual income below to find out how long it would have taken Mitt Romney to earn the same amount of money. (Don’t worry, we’re not collecting any data you type in.)

(thanks to my darlin’ Molly for depressing me even more by showing me this!)
Impish says he’ll need to find a place to live should he beat the charges against him as the wife threw him out followed by a hail of pots and pans.
Gee I can’t imagine why!
Ok so you’re going to wind up with a double dose of me preaching to the choir today but there is something I have to get off me chest before my BP spikes through the roof and I stroke out or go postal on the first Afghani rat bastard I see. Unfortunately I received this after having sent today’s issue to layout and having already spent an great deal of time on my Parting Shot, hence the double dosing. However once you read this I don’t think most of you are going to have a problem with the double dosing and I expect many of you are going to be as up in arms about the entire thing as I am.
I’ve been doing a Yeoman’s job according to several sources including Impish and Molly over keeping quiet about the Marines videoed urinating on dead (presumably) Taliban. Impish and I had discussed the “advisability” of me making a statement of my view point and decided it would be unwise at the time for me to say the sort of things that were running through my mind despite the likelihood that any reader who ever experienced combat would understand my point of view on the issue. As of today that point of view about the inadvisability of my remarks has changed in light of something K-Squared has sent me. I’ll come back after you see this. Be prepared to be incensed, and I DO NOT mean by your priest with Frankincense.
High Fashion in the Mosque
We’re constantly clubbed on the head with the claim that the Muslim world condemns 9/11, abhors 9/11, etc. – Yet every day Shirts like this are mass produced, marketed, and sold by street venders thru out the Middle East and it’s simply OK. The mass-murder of 9-11 is a celebrated event by millions of people. Now a few of our military guys, after months of sleeping on the cold ground, eating MREs, not having a good hot shower, and away from their love ones, get caught peeing on a couple of dead Taliban/Al Qada types, and they are condemned by the world. What they did wasn’t right, but the huge outpouring of condemnation doesn’t compare (in my mind) to someone who would wear a shirt like this that glorifies the murder of over 3,000 innocent Americans.
So some pissed off young Marines pissed on some dead Taliban/Al Qada types to show their distain for the enemy and they way they do things (to say nothing of the politically correct, touchy feely, politics driven rules of engagement they are made to suffer under which effectively ties one of their arms behind their back). What things? SO GLAD YOU ASKED! HOW about (for starters):
- Persecution of those of other religions up to and including torture and death.
- Defamation and destruction of materials and places of other religions while DEMANDING we treat their religious places and materials with the respect of an adherent of their terroristic religion “of peace”.
- Using those same religious sites to cache and store weapons and explosives (proven) while demanding we respect their religion and not “defile” these places by entering and searching them.
- Securing hostages who are under threat of torture mutilation and death in mosques so as to make them untouchable and unrescueable
- When in danger of being captured, killed or over run by U.S. forces, retreating into Mosques where US forces are forbidden to fire because we might “damage a holy site” but continuing to fire upon U,S, troops from those “holy sites of the religion of peace”
- Offering bounties for wounded U.S. troops to torture and then publically behead.
- Offering bounties for the bodies of fallen U.S. troops to mutilate desecrate and display publically while proudly claiming credit for the acts that they cannot do unless the U.S. soldier is dead because he’d kill him and 30 of his friends were he alive.
- Issuing a fatwa at the drop of a hat on anyone who mentions Mohammed critically or draws a picture of him while adherents of “the religion of peace” sell and wear shirts proudly celebrating the tragedy of September 11th and the deaths of over 3000.
I could continue to list their daily atrocities committed against our troops, but I think you get the idea. Strange how that Liberal Bastion of Oppression, Bullshit and Hatred of All Things That Make Up America Except Our Money and Resources the United Nations, can be so silent about all these daily occurrences, but let one single squad of young fed up Marines express their contempt for these Tali-turds and the success stifling overly restrictive Mother-May-I rules of engagement they just cannot roll out the Liberally Superior Condemnation Wagon fast enough! As if that was not bad enough every damned arrogant Democrat in Congress and the Closet Towelhead himself our Tali-turd Lover in Chief hops aboard before they even have the Condemnation Party Wagon totally out of the UN’s paid for by our government garage!
If you ask me the REAL question is NOT why they did this, but why it has not happened sooner or more often. I think they showed a great deal of restraint! Were it me I probably would have killed, bled and gutted a pig over them and buried them with it each with a mouthful of pig organic by product then had a Rabbi & a Priest pray over the grave!
As for that festering anal pustule in the photo above THIS is how I would express my displeasure with him:
The ONLY reason I would not fix the problem with a FLAME THROWER is because napalm DOES stick to kids and I’d want to avoid any collateral damage from dealing with this ass pustule.
I’M THE SODDING BLOODY LETHAL LEPRECHAUN AND I SAY its high time these Tali-turds reap what they have been sowing for so long….IN BUGGERING SPADES! Only then when we take the gloves off and start making them fear us coming for them because they KNOW we’ll take away any chance they have at Paradise will we get a permanent resolution to this.
PISS ON THEM an piss on the bloody morally superior but have never been in battle liberals who are so quick to jump to condemn them too!

New Battle Between Retailers and Credit Cards Could Catch Consumers In The Middle
January 24, 2012 By George Gombossy
Another major dispute on interchange fees could take place, and this one may have new, painful consequences on consumers. This time, the battle centers around the swipe fee that retailers pay on credit card transactions.
According to CNBC, there is an antitrust suit between five million retailers and Visa, MasterCard and 13 large banks, including Citi, Bank of America, Chase, Capital One, U.S. Bancorp and Wells Fargo. Retailers claim that banks and the payment systems have unfairly worked together to increase the amount of the interchange fee retailers pay on credit card transactions.
The amount that each retailer pays as a swipe fee varies widely but the industry average is approximately 2 percent. This antitrust suit could cut that figure by three-quarters down to 0.5 percent. That would be one more devastating revenue blow to the banks as well as Visa and MasterCard, leading to billions of dollars in lost income.
Last year, the Durbin amendment went into effect on October 1, cutting the interchange fee on debit card transactions from an average of 44 cents to no more than 21 cents (plus 0.05 percent of the transaction, with the possibility of an additional cent if banks comply with fraud prevention procedures). Banks tried to make up for this lost revenue by implementing a monthly debit card fee which led to consumer outrage. Banks eventually rescinded this monthly fee.
If the retailers win this antitrust suit, it could have have a significant impact on consumers:
* Banks will lose billions of dollars at a time when they have already suffered significant cutbacks in revenue. Whenever banks lose revenue in one area, they try to make up for it in another area and that always comes at the expense of the consumer. An increase in existing fees, the introduction of new fees, and an increase in the credit card interest rates are changes that could be pushed by banks.
* A significant decrease in credit card reward programs. The lucrative cash back and airline mile rewards will likely decline. Most banks eliminated debit card rewards when the Durbin amendment passed. The same could happen with credit card programs if retailers win this suit.
* A likely decrease in attractive balance transfer offers. Currently, credit card issuers are offering 0 percent interest rates for extended periods of time in order to lure customers from their competitors. The Citi Platinum Select card offers 0 percent for 21 months; the Discover More card offers 0 percent for 18 months; and the Slate from Chase card offers 0 percent for 12 months with no balance transfer fee. If retailers win this antitrust suit, look for credit card issuers to scale back these balance transfer offers.
* On the positive side, a possible decrease in prices at store level. Retailers claimed the passage of the Durbin amendment could lead to a decrease in prices since they would no longer have to pay the high swipe fees on debit card transactions. It is difficult to see if this actually took place. However, retailers may face more pressure from consumer groups to cut prices if the interchange fee is also slashed on credit card purchases.
A koala was sitting in a gum tree smoking a joint…
when a little lizard walked past, looked up and said, ‘Hey Koala! What are you doing?’
The koala said, ‘Smoking a joint, come up and have some.’
So the little lizard climbed up and sat next to the koala where they enjoyed a few joints. After a while the little lizard said that his mouth was ‘dry’ and that he was going to get a drink from the river.
The little lizard was so stoned that he leaned over too far and fell into the river.
A crocodile saw this and swam over to the little lizard and helped him to the side. Then he asked the little lizard, ‘What’s the matter with you?’
The little lizard explained to the crocodile that he had been sitting with the koala in the tree, smoking a joint, but got too stoned and fell into the river while taking a drink..
The crocodile said that he had to check this out and walked into the rain forest, found the tree where the koala was sitting finishing a joint. The crocodile looked up and said,
I’ll bet the name of the Dragon this refers to escapes you right? Now I don’t want to say he’s a glutton or anything and ok I’ll admit he lost a whole 3 pounds while in captivity but after 52 kinds of pie on his flight, plus a week of binging on pies and hot wings, when my personal plane took his broad backside to his house arrest location it had to use the call sign “Shamrock One HEAVY”
Speaking of food, this seems like an ideal segue to…

Today’s response to my Parting Shot video last issue regarding the controlling of information you can access on the Internet comes from our very own Richard Kimbel-esque fugitive on the run who is currently lolling in semi comfort under house arrest with a neutral party, Impish Dragon who wrote:
Comment on Leprechaun Laughs # 125 for Wednesday 1/25/12 by impishdragon Wednesday, January 25, 2012 5:29 AM
Wow. I never looked at the internet and google, etc, in quite that way before (Your TED video in your parting shot). That is an extremely important point to make. So, the question becomes, where do we go for a truly honest search?
Thanks my friend. You’ve given me something to really think about.
Rather than a Rebuttal (note to self for the third time, figure out an alternate title and make a new graphic), my response to Impish’s comment is
The concepts of “And That’s The Way It Is” & “Just the Facts Ma’am” died with Walter Cronkite and Jack Webb. Honest, unvarnished, undiluted and accurate reporting with a fundamental belief in the people’s right to know has gone the way of the Dodo and the passenger pigeon.
There is no long “the truth the WHOLE truth and nothing but the truth”, no accurate factual reporting with which people can draw their own conclusions and create their own (well informed opinions). Now there is only “The Spin” & “The Sound Bite” (popular for the incredible ease with which they can be used out of context) and a preponderance of muckraking yellow journalism.
I am constantly reminded accessing the news of a scene in Star Wars – Return of the Jedi.
Luke: Obi-Wan? Why didn’t you tell me? You told me Vader betrayed and murdered my father.
Obi-Wan: Your father was seduced by the dark side of the Force. He ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and became Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed. So what I told you was true, from a certain point of view.
Luke: “A certain point of view”?
Obi-Wan: Luke, you will find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.
— Return of the Jedi
While Obi-Wan may have been speaking in a quasi-religious &/or personal beliefs and values sense, from where I sit this has become the guiding philosophy of all news outlets, however the point of view that matters, the one the truth is judged by is each media/news services own political agenda.
Now this “cancer of the truth” is rapidly spreading to the internet in the form of overly restrictive search algorithms seeking to personalize your search results for you. I see this as much a result of a desire by Big Brother to have total control over information so as to make us believe and perceive what is in their best interest coupled with the continuing trend to “dumb down” the use of the internet until it becomes unrecognizable from AOL and therefore totally unusable as the meaningful, informative or educational unbiased information and idea exchange medium it was envisioned to be.
Abbott and Costello’s Classic Who’s On First Updated for the Obama Era
COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.
ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It’s 9%.
COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?
ABBOTT: No, that’s 16%.
COSTELLO: You just said 9%.
ABBOTT: 9% Unemployed.
COSTELLO: Right 9% out of work.
ABBOTT: No, that’s 16%.
COSTELLO: Okay, so it’s 16% unemployed.
ABBOTT: No, that’s 9%…
COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 9% or 16%?
ABBOTT: 9% are unemployed. 16% are out of work.
COSTELLO: IF you are out of work you are unemployed.
ABBOTT: No, you can’t count the “Out of Work” as the unemployed.
You have to look for work to be unemployed.
COSTELLO: BUT THEY ARE OUT OF WORK!!!
ABBOTT: No, you miss my point.
COSTELLO: What point?
ABBOTT: Someone who doesn’t look for work, can’t be counted with those who look for work.
It wouldn’t be fair.
COSTELLO: To who?
ABBOTT: The unemployed.
COSTELLO: But they are ALL out of work.
ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work stopped looking.
They gave up. And, if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.
COSTELLO: So if you’re off the unemployment rolls, that would count as less unemployment?
ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!
COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don’t look for work?
ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That’s how you get to 9%. Otherwise it would be 16%.
You don’t want to read about 16% unemployment do ya?
COSTELLO: That would be frightening.
COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means they’re two ways to bring down the unemployment number?
ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.
COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?
COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?
COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to just stop looking for work.
ABBOTT: Now you’re thinking like an economist.
COSTELLO: I don’t even know what the hell I just said!
And now you know why Obama’s unemployment figures are improving!
Now to get the nasty taste of those twisted liberal idea of “facts” out of your mouth and brain. Here are Abbott & Costello doing the real version of the Classic Who’s On First. Forget and enjoy!
Hunting in Canada
A Canadian and an American were hunting in Canadian woods when a Mexican runs across the field and the Canadian shoots him in the back and kills him. “You can’t do that!” cried the American.
“Yes I can,” replies the Canadian,”it’s legal here in Canada .”
Later that night the American goes out and buys beer and puts it on the roof of his truck to open the door. Just then a Mexican runs by, grabs the beer, and runs away. The American thinks, “No problem,” and he shoots him in the back and kills him. As he is getting his beer the police come and arrest him.
“But I thought it was legal to shoot Mexicans here in Canada !” protests the American.
“Well, yeah,” says the cop, “but you can’t use bait.”
It never hurts to smile at a stranger….. or, you might want to save a life, with a simple kiss….
A tough looking group of bikers were riding when they saw a girl about to jump off a bridge so they stopped.
“I’m going to commit suicide,” she says.
While he did not want to appear insensitive, he didn’t want to miss an opportunity so he asked… “Well, before you jump, why don’t you give me a kiss?”
So she does… And it was a long, deep lingering kiss.
After she’s finished, the biker says, “Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had. That’s a real talent you are wasting. You could be famous. Why are you committing suicide?”
“My parents don’t like me dressing up like a girl…..”
This Parting Shot brought to you (with editorial comments by me) in part by Reader Paul (Pt. 1) and in part by Reader K-Squared (Pt. 2) I thought both sets of comments dovetailed so well that I decided they belonged together despite how long it made this Parting Shot.
Please don’t consider this is just a bunch of political hog-wash and trash it. Read it carefully, think about it, research it, item by item. A lot has happened in the last 3 years, WOW! It’s not what I had expected to happen within our country. How about you?

If any other of our presidents had doubled the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read, would you think that he is just an ignorant hot head?
If any other of our presidents joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder who’s side he was on?
If any other of our presidents had pronounced the Marine Corps like Marine Corpse, would you think him an idiot?
If any other of our presidents had put 87,000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one foreign company had an accident, would you have agreed?
If any other of our presidents had used a forged document as the basis of the moratorium that would render 87000 American workers unemployed would you support him?
If any other of our presidents had been the first President to need a Teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?
If any other of our presidents had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take his First Lady to a play in NYC, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had reduced your retirement plan holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought it a proud moment for America ?
If any other of our presidents had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent “Austrian language,” would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?
If any other of our presidents had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had stated that there were 57 states in the United States , wouldn’t you have had second thoughts about his capabilities?
If any other of our presidents would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in his home town, would you not have thought he was a self-important, conceited, egotistical jerk.
If any other of our presidents had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to “Cinco de Cuatro” in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, wouldn’t you have winced in embarrassment?
If any other of our presidents had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he’s a hypocrite?
If any other of our presidents’ administrations had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11? *
If any other of our presidents had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?
If any other of our presidents had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America , would you have ever approved.
If any other of our presidents had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?
So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?
Can’t think of anything? (can’t say that’s shocking to me)
He’s done all this in 34 months – so you don’t have that much time to come up with an answer. (ok, found something impressive, the fact he has screwed up this badly in such a short period of time and has not suffered a single use of the word “impeachment” in relation to him IS impressive)
Every statement and action in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama.
Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.
HE ACTUALLY WANTS US TO RE-ELECT HIM.
WAKE UP AMERICA 2012 IS UPON US.
I WONDER HOW MANY OF YOU WILL FORWARD THIS ?
I AM BECAUSE I CANNOT AFFORD TO TAKE A CHANCE ON THIS GUY FOR ANOTHER FOUR YEARS . . .

Add these up one by one and you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that Barrack Hussein Obama is determined to turn America into a Marxist-Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily.
Before you disavow this, do an Internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that
paragraph. Will it read as above or will it be a more happy ending for most of America?
Don’t just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. We all need to pull together or watch the demise of a free society.
Pray for Americans to seek the truth and take action for it will keep us FREE.
Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia, North Korea or Iran.
Our biggest enemy is a contingent of politicians in Washington, DC .
The government will not help, so we need to do it ourselves.

know about Obama’s actions and plans for the USA, so that they may
know how to vote in November, 2012 and the ensuing years?
It’s your decision. I believe it does matter. How about you?
WHEN – November 2012 comes, it will matter who you vote for!
