Good Morning Campers!
Well, it’s happened. We got our 30 day notice last week, furlough days are coming in July. 40% of my usual paycheck…poof! Gone. Blown away! Taken by the Government, because of some stupid power play by the politicians.
They have no integrity.
If they did, the VERY least they would do is take pay away from the rest of the government, not just the peons in the trenches. They would take it from themselves. But no. Just like everything else they force upon we the people, they exempt themselves.
That’s bullshit politics.
That’s chicken shit.
That’s a lack of integrity, honesty and leadership.
I have no intention of re-electing any official who refuses to uphold his oath.
Oath breakers – as Lethal’s video on Wednesday showed. Well, I have two more videos, in today’s Last Word, from the same session in New Jersey. I believe you will find it VERY enlightening. But, until we get there….let’s get our laugh on!
Okay, I want to start out with this one, right off the bat. It’s funny, but in a really sadistic sort of way. I think every man should see this. Because everyone has a mother who has gone through this and many men feel that women are wimps and can’t take the pain…so, before we go anywhere else, lets watch this video. And remember, if you want to see it, you have to go to our website. You can’t watch it in the email. So, right now, go to http://dragonlaffs.com and you’ll already be there for the rest of the videos that I’m sure will be in the issue. This is the first item that I’m adding to today’s issue, so I’m guessing there will be more videos, but I’m not really sure. But, just in case, go to the website anyway and you’ll be all set.
Okay…so they also say (who the hell “they” are is beyond me, but I digress) that the closest thing that a man can come to a woman’s pain in childbirth is having a kidney stone. Well, since I’ve delivered 6 stones so far in my life, I would consider myself somewhat of an expert on the subject of the pain involved. Let me paint you a picture of my very first kidney stone.
It started out as sort of strange pain. Kind of made me feel like I had to use the toilet. But, as the night wore on, it got worse and worse. Kind of a wavery slippery pain that seemed to move up and down in the same short area in the lower right side of my back. Finally about midnight, I told Mrs. Dragon, that we had to go to the Emergency Room. We dropped the littlest dragon off at the neighbor’s house (God bless them for taking our kid at midnight) and started to drive.
Mrs. Dragon was behind the wheel and I was hanging from the sissy bar above the window, (also known as an assist handle for the elderly and the “Oh Shit” Bar for the near accident and tight turn crowd) and I was actually holding myself parallel to the seat, which was laid back. I was pleading with God not to kill me and telling my dear wife, who bless her heart, was caught between being scared to death and laughing her ass off at me, that I didn’t want to die. Please don’t let me die.
Needless to say, I have taken a lot of crap over the ensuing years over that infantile display. But, I’m telling you … it hurt!
Anyway, we pull up to St. Joseph Hospital at about 1 am and thankfully it was early on a Thursday morning, so the ER wasn’t that crowded. I puked several times from the pain before we even got to the door and by the time I got to the check in desk, there wasn’t a person in Kokomo who didn’t know that I was hurting.
But, the climax to the whole affair came about 30 minutes later when the doctor needed a urine sample and I couldn’t pee, so they used a catheter on me. I never even felt it.
Now, remember, this is SAINT Joseph Hospital, this is important for the next part. It was about this time that another really strong pain hit me and I screamed at the top of my lungs, “Oh My Fu*king God it hurts!” I’m pretty sure that one nun fainted outright, while another turned the prettiest shade of crimson. The doctor, in a calm voice said, “Yup, take him upstairs, see that he’s sedated.”
Well, long story short, I stayed that way for two days while they tried to allow the stone to pass on it’s own. When the finally decided it wouldn’t, they sent me to surgery and removed it by sending a tiny basked on a pole down the end of my junior dragon, capturing the stone and pulling it back out. All I can say about that is that I’m glad they knocked me out for that part.
Even with all the great drugs they gave me, my first taste of morphine, great stuff that, still one of my favorite pain killers, although nowadays I have to take a lot more of it to have any real effect on my arthritic pain, it was indeed, THE WORST pain I have ever had. Even my knee, at it’s very worst, before they replaced it, was not even a candle compared to the fiery inferno that was that first kidney stone. So ladies, if that’s the kind of pain that you feel when having a baby, I can only gaze amazedly at you and wonder how in the world you could ever have more than one child…on purpose. It boggles the mind!
Here’s a great little science quiz. Not to brag, but I got 100%. Compare how you do…
how smart are you?
If Congress got stuff done like roommates….
Life in thirteen words…no truer words have been spoken…
”Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what the fuck happened.”
An older guy goes to his doctor for his physical and gets sent to the Urologist as a precaution.
When he gets there, he discovers the Urologist is a very pretty female doctor.
The female doctor says, “I’m going to check your prostate today, but this new procedure is a little different from what you are probably used to. I want you to lie on your right side, bend your knees, then while I check your prostate, take a deep breath and say, ’99’.
The old guy obeys and says, “99”.
The doctor says, “Great”, now turn over on your left side and again, while I repeat the check, take a deep breath and say, ’99”.
Again, the old guy says, ’99’.”
The doctor said, Very good . Now then, I want you to lie on your back with your knees raised slightly. I’m going to check your prostate with this hand, and with the other hand I’m going to hold on to your penis to keep it out of the way. Now take a deep breath and say, ’99’.
The old guy begins, “One… Two… Three “

- O.J. Simpson is waiting to see if a judge will grant him a retrial. Have you seen how fat O.J. has gotten? He’s so fat, he’s changed his name from O.J. to “Au Jus.”
- O.J. is so fat, he wants the judge to throw the cookbook at him.
- White House officials continue to insist that President Obama knew nothing about the IRS scandal until we all heard about it in the news last week. They said because there was an investigation under way, it would have been inappropriate to tell him. And besides, Obama was too busy not knowing anything about Benghazi.
- Anthony Weiner has formally announced he is running for mayor of New York City. He posted a video announcing it just after midnight — and traditionally, being online in the middle of the night has always worked so well for Mr. Weiner.
- Last night at midnight, former Congressman Anthony Weiner officially announced in an online video that he is running for mayor of New York. Nothing says “I put my sleazy past behind me” like showing a video on the Internet at midnight.
- During a Senate hearing yesterday, Senator John McCain said it was too hard to always have to update apps on his iPhone. No one has the heart to tell him the device he was holding was a garage door opener.
- Brad Pitt said in an interview that he has very few friends. In other words, it’s just one more thing that Brad Pitt and I have in common.

The two Texans are scrambling from jack to jack to try to get the barn raised when this Cajun walks up. “Wot chall doin?” Boudreaux asks.
“We’s raisin thuh barn, yuh stoopid Cajun,” Billy Bob says.
“Why you do dat?”
“Cause thuh mule’s ears keep touchin’ thuh doorway when we try to put him in iss-here barn and he goes haf-crazy wild,” Billy Bob says. “He kicked Ernest Wayne plumb in thuh haid twicet already.”
“Why come you don’ just dig de hole in de doorway? Dat way him got to go down when he get to de do’ an him ear don’t touch nutin.”
“Ya stoopid Cajun,” Ernest Wayne chimes in. “It’s his ears at’s too long, not his laigs!”
You have two choices in life: You can stay single and be miserable, or get married and wish you were dead.
At a cocktail party, one woman said to another, Aren’t you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?” Yes, I am. I married the wrong man.”
A lady inserted an ‘ad’ in the classifieds: “Husband Wanted”.
Next day she received a hundred letters.
They all said the same thing: “You can have mine.”
When a woman steals your husband, there is no better revenge than to let her keep him.
A woman is incomplete until she is married. Then she is finished.
A little boy asked his father, “Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?”
Father replied, “I don’t know son, I’m still paying.”
Young son: “Is it true Dad, that in some parts of Africa a man doesn’t know his wife until he marries her?”
Dad: “That happens in every country, son.”
Then there was a woman who said, “I never knew what real happiness was until I got married, and by then, it was too late.”
If you want your spouse to listen and pay strict attention to every word you
say, talk in your sleep .
Just think, if it weren’t for marriage, men would go through life thinking they had no faults at all.
First guy: “My wife’s an angel!”
Second guy: “You’re lucky, mine’s still alive.”
Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a big gut, and still think they are attractive to the opposite sex.
The Doctor’s Office by Mrs. Hughes
President Obama’s job approval ratings held steady Monday in CNN’s latest poll. The numbers split exactly along party lines. Fifty-three percent of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing as president while the other forty-seven percent are being audited.
The Vatican is denying that Pope Francis performed an exorcism on a man in St. Peter’s Square. Official say if the Pope really wanted to perform an exorcism he would arrange an audience with Donald Trump.
A study says that health literature is too complex for most patients to grasp. Mostly because these are the same people who can’t figure out how to even open their pill bottles in the first place.
I feel bad for Barack Obama. He’s got the Benghazi scandal, the IRS scandal, and the FBI wiretapping phones. The president is in so much trouble politically, he’s thinking about killing bin Laden again.
President Obama commented on the Oklahoma City tornado damage on Tuesday. He obviously has a lot on his mind now. The president said he’s looking into it, he vowed that folks will be held accountable and he declared that the American people expect better.
IRS official Lois Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment rights and refused to testify to Congress about targeting conservatives. How embarrassing. Lerner is so mortified over having to cite the U.S. Constitution she ordered herself audited for being a right-wing group.
These scandals at the White House are just getting worse. It turns out that President Obama’s chief of staff knew about the scandal at the IRS three weeks before the president found out. Obama was like, “Anything else you guys aren’t telling me?”
And Joe Biden was like, “Uh . . . I broke the copier.”
Oklahoma Senator Coburn is on record now saying that any tornado relief funds for OKLA must be matched with cuts elsewhere. How much money could we save by cutting Oklahoma down to one senator?
As a former citizen of the great state of New Jersey, a place I still tend to call “home”, I find I am intolerably embarrassed by the spectacle you are about to view below. You may remember the video link that Lethal presented in his issue on Wednesday, and those of you who follow the comments section may remember the Whelpling’s comments (who also happens to be my son). If you haven’t seen them, I hope this next section still makes sense to you, since it’s a two video continuation on that video. From the same session in New Jersey that the first video came from, please follow along with the next part. The embarrassing part.
Welcome to NJ, Pro Gun Citizen Forcefully Removed From Hearing in the Middle of His Testimony
So, this is NJ huh?
Second Amendment activist, James Kaleda, was forcefully removed from a hearing on a new gun control bill in NJ during his testimony.
Yes, James’ testimony got a little heated, but he was still making an intelligent argument. A little heated? I didn’t find his testimony heated at all until he was interrupted. Pure Bullshit!
Notice in the video the legislators laugh as they have their security (armed with guns of course) remove Kaleda before he finished his testimony.
Kaleda receives a standing ovation from the gallery during his ejection.
There is some atonement by the populace as can be seen in this next video which comes almost immediately after the first one.
Amazing Video – Entire Audience at NJ Gun Hearing Disobeys Senators Orders, Recites Pledge
If you’ve seen the video we posted earlier today, then you definitely want to check this one out. There was some question that when Second Amendment activist, James Kaleda, was removed from the hearing if the audience was clapping for him or for his removal. I think this video, which took place immediately following that, should clear things up.
After a Second Amendment activist was forcefully removed from a hearing on upcoming gun legislation in NJ, the audience wasn’t too happy.
Several members of the audience yelled at the state senator in charge from the audience, several called him out of order, and at least one more was escorted from the room.
Then in one of the best displays of civil disobedience I’ve ever seen, the entire audience recited the pledge of allegiance, while most of the lawmakers remained seated.
This is one to share.
