Wow! I see SOME of you really made the most of your 3 day weekends! Those are some impressive sunburns and hangovers (both alcohol and waistline/belt) I can see lingering in a few of you.
Well time to set our sights on fall now, school is back in session (thank the gods for the peace during the day finally but damn them for the snail paced school busses that refuse to pull over and allow traffic to pass them).
I’m happy to report that Notre Dame soundly sank Navy 50 – 10. It was a heck of a game, made even more so by the extremely early time it was televised here in the States as it was played in Dublin Ireland at Aviva Stadium. It’s the second time the schools have met in Dublin. Notre Dame rolled to a 54-27 win in 1996, Lou Holtz’s final season as the Irish’s head coach. A long time ago.
The Navy–Notre Dame series has been played annually since 1914, making it the longest uninterrupted intersectional series in college football. Notre Dame holds a 71-12-1 series edge. Before Navy won a 46-44 triple-overtime thriller in 2007, Notre Dame had a 43-game winning streak that was the longest series win streak between two annual opponents in the history of Division I FBS football. Navy’s previous win came in 1963, 35-14 with future Heisman Trophy winner and NFL QB Roger Staubach at the helm.
And yes, just to be honest, I would have said I was happy if Navy had one as well. When your alma mater and your favorite college team play one another its all good regardless of what happens is my philosophy.
Well our “Fund the Blog For Another Year” Drive has come to a close with the arrival of September 1st. Our last big hurrah of a push was a success, no doubt due to my promise that if we hit the $300 mark I would refrain from bashing Obama, mentioning the political situation and even as an added incentive not throw Impish under the proverbial bus until after November 1st. That’s 2 straight months, 9 entire issues- will I go insane? Have a stroke in a fit of apoplexy? Stress induced heart attack? Be taken away to the land of padded cells & pharmaceutical mood enhancements? Guess we’re going to find out together.
I’d like to thank our last two contributors who helped up reach a grand total of $320 to keep our blog up, running and our coffee urn in the production offices full. George Soros and Barrack Obama each made $30 contributions to the cause of keeping my Leprechaun Laughs Parting Shot political indictments of the Democrats and their Liberal agenda in general silent for most to the rest of the election season. Thanks for proving just what a cheap couple of SOBs you are unless you’re paying for things with other people’s money!
NO that was NOT ‘Political’…that was PERSONAL.
And now without further ado…
Pleasing A Woman
A group of girlfriends went on vacation and they see a five-story hotel with a sign that reads “For Women Only.” Since they were without their boyfriends, they decide to go in.
The Doorman, a very attractive guy, explains to them how it works, “We have 5 floors. Go up floor by floor, and once you find what you are looking for, you can stay there. It’s easy to decide, since each floor has signs telling you what’s inside. The only rule is, once you leave a floor, you can’t return to it.”
The women talk it over and decide to go for it. They start going up, and on the first floor the sign reads “All the men here are horrible lovers, but they are sensitive and kind.” The friends laugh and without hesitation move on to the next floor.
The sign on the Second floor reads! “All the men here are wonderful lovers, but they generally treat women badly.” This wasn’t going to do so again they head for the stairs.
The friends move up to the Third floor where the sign read “All the men here are great lovers and sensitive to the needs of women.” This was good but there were still two more floors…
So on to the Fourth floor, the sign was perfect. “All the men here have perfect builds; are sensitive and attentive to women; are perfect lovers; they are also single, rich and straight”
The women seemed pleased but they decide that they would rather see what the fifth floor has to offer before they settle for the fourth.
When they reach the Fifth floor, there is only a sign that reads:
“There are no men here. This floor was built only to prove that there is simply no way to please a woman.”
will.i.am releases “Reach For The Stars” by beam from Mars
(CNN) — Rapper will.i.am can boast of an accomplishment that is out of this world: His latest single premiered from Mars, making it the first song to debut on another planet.
The Black Eyed Peas singer wrote the song, “Reaching for the Stars,” to mark the successful landing of NASA’s Curiosity rover on the Red Planet this month.
A far cry from his regular hip-hop tunes, it features a 40-piece orchestra set to a futuristic beat.
The song is set to transcend time and cultures, he said.

In Leprechaun Laughs # 155 for Wednesday Aug 22, 2012 we talked about how all the reasons proponents of gun control have been demonstrated to be untrue, circular in logic, unconstitutional and in fact lead to a greater risk not a less risk of being sot in public by a deranged gunman.
I showed you a clip of a lone senior citizen LAWFULLY carrying a concealed weapon thwarting a robbery where both robbers were armed with deadly weapons. I also touched on how little news exposure that story got due to our media no longer being unbiased, fair or accurate in their reporting of their heavily censored individual corporate versions of the news.
Here is another case in point which occurred all the way back in April but is just now getting National attention because of the Internet as opposed to news outlets:
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) – A citizen with a gun stopped a knife wielding man as he began stabbing people Thursday evening at the downtown Salt Lake City Smith’s store.
Police say the suspect purchased a knife inside the store and then turned it into a weapon. Smith’s employee Dorothy Espinoza says, “He pulled it out and stood outside the Smiths in the foyer. And just started stabbing people and yelling you killed my people. You killed my people.”
Espinoza says, the knife wielding man seriously injured two people. “There is blood all over. One got stabbed in the stomach and got stabbed in the head and held his hands and got stabbed all over the arms.”
Then, before the suspect could find another victim – a citizen with a gun stopped the madness. “A guy pulled gun on him and told him to drop his weapon or he would shoot him. So, he dropped his weapon and the people from Smith’s grabbed him.”
By the time officers arrived the suspect had been subdued by employees and shoppers. Police had high praise for gun carrying man who ended the hysteria. Lt. Brian Purvis said, “This was a volatile situation that could have gotten worse. We can only assume from what we saw it could have gotten worse. He was definitely in the right place at the right time.”
Dozens of other shoppers, who too could have become victims, are also thankful for the gun carrying man. And many, like Danylle Julian, are still in shock from the experience. “Scary actually. Really scary. Five minutes before I walk out to my car. It could have been me.”
Police say right now they have no idea what caused the suspect to go on the dangerous rampage. (We will update as soon as we learn new information.)
So far, police have not released the names of the suspect, the victims or the man who pulled the gun.

— Don’t Get Swept Away –*
A very small female janitor (4’10”, 90 pounds) worked at an amusement park and was told to go out and sweep up the grounds.
As she was getting ready to head out to clean up, her supervisor noticed her putting rocks in her pockets. When asked what she was doing, she pointed out that it was so windy out she was afraid of getting knocked over by the wind.
‘So,’ she said, ‘now I weigh me down to sweep.’

I had in fact planned a completely different Parting Shot today. In fact writing it so I could finish this issue and set it to auto post tomorrow because I procrastinated all Labor Day weekend was at the top of my list of things to do today- right after reading my e-mails. Then I saw the send below four different time from four different people whom I THOUGHT were responsible enough web surfers to check facts (or at least spot check them) to see if what they are passing along when of an inflammatory nature has ANY basis in reality.
Mistaken sadly was I. Necessary to address this it is humm? (DAMN IT! UNCLE YODA GET OUT OF MY HEAD!) Ahem, as I was saying…
This Parting Shot requires to additional labels and a disclaimer before we proceed I am informed by our legal and editorial departments so as not to run afoul of any promises, verbal agreements or implied contracts I may have made:
I’m sure many of you have seen the source material for these comments in your Inboxes of late, (in fact I KNOW you have because several of you have forwarded it to both Impish and I) I got this from SO many of you people that you can all claim responsibility for my feeling it necessary to come out in commentary defense of the truth.
Disclaimer: I would like to mention before going further that prior of authoring this piece I consulted with our legal council and asked out Editor in Chief (a.k.a. Keeper of the Red Crayon of Deletion) Impish if these comments broke my contract with you donators regarding my no politics or dragon bashing pledge. After due deliberation it was decided that since I was not promoting one side over the other nor bashing either side but simply addressing the total lack of factuality in this e-mail that I was in fact NOT breaking my contract but was in fact busting a virulent and currently popular myth, something which it could be reasonably argued was part of our “mission statement” here at DL/LL Enterprises and possibly even my patriotic duty!
What pisses me off is this kind of crap- BLAINTANT MISREPRESENTATIOON VIA OUTRIGHT LIES makes the majority of the American voting populace misinformed because 75% of the world thinks everything that is put on the internet has to be true. We welcome debate, we welcome opposing point of view but we INSIST on accuracy and truthfulness of FACT be the basis of any such exchange.
Now, I give your the offending steaming male bovine sourced pasture pie in question:
Subject: O’s Recent Executive Orders
Now, “free” citizen, how do you feel about your government? The items below are controlled by people who can’t come up with a budget, have made a series of bad decisions on the economy, on the environment, on world affairs, giving our tax money plus what we have to borrow – to countries who are on record as wanting us dead….given by people we voted into office.
Voting the present crowd out will get rid of the most heinous,…. but not all …..the problems. Pray…and vote.
A Comprehensive List Of Obama’s Recent Executive Orders
There have been over 900 Executive Orders put forth from President Obama, all taking place in only his first term. I have compiled a choice list of ‘Emergency Powers’, (a pathway to government seizure) executive orders:
—-Look these up and read these in full for yourselves:
* Executive Order 10990
allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.
* Executive Order 10995
allows the government to seize and control the communication media.
* Executive Order 10997
allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels, and minerals.
* Executive Order 11000
allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.
* Executive Order 11001
allows the government to take over all health education and welfare functions.
* Executive Order 11002
designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.
* Executive Order 11003
allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
* Executive Order 11004
allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate and establish new locations for populations. (Research “Agenda 21”)
* Executive Order 11005
allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways, and public storage facilities.
* Executive Order 11049
assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issues over a fifteen-year period.
* Executive Order 11051
specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
* Executive Order 11310
grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute Industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.
* Executive Order 11921
allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit, and the flow of money in U.S. financial institutions in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when the president declares a state of emergency,
Congress cannot review the action for six months.
This is in no way the vision that our Founders had for this country; in fact, it is quite the opposite:
The Constitution was designed to KEEP the government from taking control. It is more than clear from these executive orders that the current administration is helping to shape a government control and takeover of the key institutions in America, food,energy, transportation, work, banking, and health.These executive orders force us to submit to international regulations instead of our own Constitution (without your representative in Congress being able to have any say). It is time to demand our elected leaders start protecting America, our sovereignty, and our Constitution–––not Government control.
This is not a partisan issue!!!
Tell me, if you hadn’t read this, would you even know about it or any of these Executive Orders?
So, now you know. What are you going to do about it?
Answer: What the Founders provided you the freedom to do:
Oh boy! Where to start? I guess I’d better hitch up the Dragon Honey Wagon because there is so much BS here It well might over flow a normal one!
Most of the cited Executive Orders have been on record for nearly 30 years and many were actually the Orders of President Kennedy NOT Barack Obama. MOST of these orders were all signed during the creation of and relate to the powers and authority of FEMA. Hell the majority of them are not even valid any longer having been replaced by later Executive Orders!
Executive Order 11004 has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with “Agenda 21” and was signed LONG before 1997 when “Agenda 21” came into being.
- Executive Order 11004. Assigning certain emergency preparedness functions to the Housing and Home Finance Administrator. Signed: February 16, 1962 www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=58928
- Agenda 21 is a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations with regards to sustainable development. It is a product of the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. It is an action agenda for the UN, other multilateral organizations, and individual governments around the world that can be executed at local, national, and global levels. The “21” in Agenda 21 refers to the 21st century. It has been affirmed and modified at subsequent UN conferences. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agenda_21
Additionally 10990 (the first one listed) was signed by JFK and is in fact given over to “RE-ESTABLISHING THE FEDERAL SAFETY COUNCIL” [www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=58928] This is a FAR CRY from:
FEMA Executive Order 10990: EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/fema_executive_orders.htm
BEGORRAH! Someone needs to bloody well pry off their tinfoil hat, its either depriving their brain of blood and oxygen or baking the bloody wee thing apparently!
First, none of those Executive Orders allows the government to suspend the Constitution.
Second, all the orders do is allow for emergency powers in the case of an emergency. 11049, for example, was utilized in the run-up to hurricane Rita to enable the government to set all lanes of I-10 to run out of Houston instead of two lanes into the city and two out. Trust me on this- I WAS HERE FOR IT!
Third, note that well over half of the EO’s that our conspiracy cultist quotes are no longer even valid, having been superseded by other EO’s further down the list. [i.e. Presidential Executive Order 10990 has been superseded by EO 11612]
Fourth, partly as an aside and partly on point, I’d like to personally point out that this Orwellian Authoritarian Doomsday Nightmare Scenario is precisely what makes the protection of our Second Amendment and State’s Rights so vitally important! With an armed populace this scenario becomes pretty damned near to impossible to enact, more so if the states refuse to go along with it and deny the government use of their respective National Guard troops!
While I agree there is some possible potential for misuse, given today’s citizen mindset and the level of over all anti government sentiment (to say nothing of the intense dislike and completely lack of confidence which the public holds FEMA in) I seriously doubt that ANYONE would succeed in implementing these orders in the Orwellian Authoritarian Doomsday Nightmare Scenario this sensationalizer of misquotes & citation of erroneous sources is attempting to portray.
Further you should know that ANY Executive Order from a previous administration can be nullified with the inclusion of one simple line in a current Executive Order:
- Sec. 6. Revocation.
Executive Order ##### of <pertinent date here>, is revoked.
The VERY FIRST Obama Administration Executive Order was Executive Order 13489 signed on January 21st 2009. The latest one is Executive Order 13618 signed July 6th 2012. That makes a grand total of 130 by my count, a FAR cry from the alleged 900 our anonymous author of absurdities claims. [For proof of this and a list click here]
If you see ANY Executive Orders prior to that numerical range attributed to President Obama be a patriot, demand that all debates discussions and exchanges be founded & grounded in truth and fact and cry;
Lethal Leprechaun showed me the truth and busted that myth!”
