Good Morning Campers! You know, when I was young, there was always something that was funny, always something to laugh at. We had SO MUCH fun! Summer lasted forever! And even school was a blast.
So, what happened?
We grew up, that’s what happened. We try…oh how very hard we try…especially here at DL&LL Electronic Media Enterprises. We try to stay child like, try to enjoy the silly, funny things in life, but there are so many times that the world intrudes and we have to pull out our inner adult and be grown up.
And it SUCKS!
This weekend is the perfect example. We can talk about Syria and the chemical weapons that were used there and the fact that they were among the WMDs that Bush said Iraq had. Yes, Bush was vindicated. I have an article by a high ranking Iraqi who is personal friends with the pilots who flew thousands and thousands of pounds of chemical and other special weapons out of Iraq and into Syria.
We can talk about another government shutdown and more damn furloughs for Impish Dragon. If the government doesn’t straighten their asses out, I will be going in to work Tuesday morning, signing in, and being sent home…with no damn pay, When I JUST got my first paycheck that was back to normal. They need to realize that they are screwing around with REAL people. If the government shut down goes on for more than two weeks, you will not only not have any Dragon Laffs on Saturdays, but I will probably be homeless. I haven’t had a chance to get everything caught up yet from the last round of bullshit and they are trying to give me more.
We can talk about how the UN is going to have to do something to destroy the stockpile of weapons they have found and are still finding in Syria. How the people of Syria don’t want them to transport those weapons through their towns (and rightfully so) and some of the way cool new technology that is available in the world could render all of them safe, right where they are.
We could talk about how Obama, like Emperor Nero fiddled, is still on his vacation schedule for him and his family, while the country collapses in on itself.
We could talk about a lot of those things.
But, we here at Dragon Laffs and Leprechaun Laffs pride ourselves in finding the funny, the humorous, the irreverent, in as much as we can and in as varied a way as we can. So, instead of talking about all those things above, let’s talk about the fact that tomorrow is:
And in celebration of National Coffee Day, you’ll find a link a little bit further down the page that shows you where you can go to get some free coffee and some other special deals. Any of you campers who come by our corporate headquarters this weekend, Lethal Leprechaun will have free mugs of his world famous Brown Gold recipe. Since I’ll be working all weekend, I’ll be partaking of as much of that wonderful brew as I can get.
Why not celebrate National Coffee Day by stopping by the website at http://dragonlaffs.com going to the right hand column, click on the link for donations and buy US a cup of coffee or two? That would be a truly marvelous way to celebrate with us, help keep our website free and free of ads, and maybe, with enough donations, Impish won’t be homeless.
Anyway, it’s time to lighten the mood so ….
Here is the newest member of the DL & LL Electronic Media family… A brand new magazine!
As promised, here’s the link for the freebies for this great holiday. Even more important than the famous Bacon Day celebrations. Although, I won’t dedicate an entire issue to the subject, you will find some coffee stuff interspersed in the rest of the issue.
Java freebies for National Coffee Day
You know, one of my personal pet peeves is the almost constant use of mobile phones by people while driving, shopping, dining, in line at the supermarket, everywhere!
Doesn’t anyone know how to say, “I’ll call you back”?
With them being used even at relaxing places like the beach, it’s enough to drive a dragon crazy!
Take this example from my own life: Last weekend, I was relaxing on the beach, enjoying the sun, reading a book, working on deepening the blue of my tan, while this lady was just beyond rude! I had to just sit there and listen to this woman for at least an hour while she talked on her cell phone and pranced back and forth in front of me.
How annoying! I couldn’t even concentrate on my book!
How thoughtless and inconsiderate can anyone be? I ALMOST got up and moved!!!
You think you’re worried and scared now about the state of American politics? You think there is no possible way for things to get any worse than they are now? You are SO mistaken!!!
It’s ok to let a fool kiss you,
but don’t let a kiss fool you.
A kiss is just shopping upstairs
for downstairs merchandise.
It is better to lose a lover
than love a loser.
are a sober man’s thoughts.
It is much better to want the mate you do not have
than to have the mate you do not want.
Okay, so this is one of the coolest ideas I’ve ever heard of. It makes perfect sense, it’s like building your own computer, which people have been doing for years, getting just what they want, but with a phone. How perfect is that? Of course if you want to watch, you have to be on the website, and if you aren’t already ON the website, then the toll is to buy us a cup of coffee. Go to the right side of the website, hit donate and spend a buck or two.
And if you’re really lost, here’s the website: http://dragonlaffs.com
Manny was almost 29 years old. Most of his friends had already gotten married, and Manny just bounced from one relationship to the next. Finally a friend asked him, “What’s the matter, are you looking for the perfect woman? Are you THAT particular? Can’t you find anyone who suits you?” “No,” Manny replied. “I meet a lot of nice girls, but as soon as I bring them home to meet my parents, my mother doesn’t like them. So I keep on looking!” “Listen,” his friend suggested, “Why don’t you find a girl who’s just like your dear ole Mother?” Many weeks past before Manny and his friend got together again. “So Manny. Did you find the perfect girl yet. One that’s just like your Mother?” Manny shrugged his shoulders, “Yes I found one just like Mom. My mother loved her, they became great friends.” “Excellent!!! So,…. Are you and this girl engaged, yet?” “I’m afraid not. My Father can’t stand her!”
A lady lost her handbag in the bustle of shopping at the mall. It was found by Lethal Leprechaun and returned to her. Looking in her purse, she commented, “Hmmm…. That’s funny. When I lost my bag there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills.”
Lethal quickly replied, “That’s right, lady. The last time I found a lady’s purse, she didn’t have any change for a reward.”
We here at Dragon Laffs and Leprechaun Laffs can attest to the truth of this statement!
Well, in the interest of getting to bed, so I can go to work, here is today’s Last Word. Written in it’s entirety by my good friend Wheats… This email was called, “I’m Mad As Hell”
I guess what angers and saddens me the most at this point is the utter contempt that is being displayed by both parties for the people of this nation.
They are clearly acting as if they are our betters and have turned a deaf ear to our grievances. This was most clearly displayed by the words and actions by elected members of both parties in the past few days. I cannot put words here about how I believe such actions should be dealt with for it will most assuredly get me a visit by the authorities.
To completely ignore 75% of the nation’s population is reminiscent of the actions by the government regarding prohibition, where a select few in the nation caused legislation to occur that lasted eleven years. It is well-documented that members of the government in Washington, DC ignored the law and got their liquor delivered right to the capitol building.
Can anyone see the parallel between that and the ACA where congress has opted out of it? If the law is so great, as McCain and Reid are telling us, why are they avoiding it so?
Clearly, as has been said for several years now, this is not about healthcare nor about helping anyone. It is the (latest) statist way to take money from those who earn it and give it away to those who don’t in order to get votes. But for republicans to adopt this practice is beyond the pale since no republican will ever get a single vote for allowing a socialist monstrosity like this to go into effect.
So, therefore, if they know that, it must be about the control of money as in, since they feel they have lost the argument they never made against ACA, they will now be able to manipulate the money to suit their needs.
This is pure selfishness on the part of people who were voted into office to do the bidding of the people who got them elected. It is cowardice. It is foolhardiness. It is arrogance.
People like McCain, seeing the bright, new future of all the money that will come the way of GovCo., would like to just get his hands on some of it. Not all. Just some so he can control his little part of the universe with it by using it to his advantage.
But these small-minded prigs have no idea what they’re cruising for. If they think they will stay in office much longer they will be very surprised.
But to be so willingly cooperative with evil is to be evil itself. To simply throw your hands up and say, “It’s the law…nothing we can do” like John the crybaby Boehner, is escapism in its purest form.
It also speaks volumes for the lack of courage and desire to avoid conflict at all costs. I have noticed over the years that people back away from confrontation, even if they are 100% right and are entitled to either an explanation or some sort of satisfaction. Given that, there is and equal number of people who are more than happy to “win” on that basis alone. In fact, it’s what “customer service” is now based on.
If you’ve ever called your insurance company and gone from cubicle monkey to cubicle monkey trying to get an answer, you can quickly learn that each said monkey is given a fraction of a percent of responsibility but cannot get you what you need/want. Only by going up successive levels of “supervisors” can you get the right answers.
This is intentional, because industries know that the customer is unwilling to confront people for FEAR OF LOOKING BAD. Yes, fear of looking bad has invaded our collective psyche and hogtied people into inaction.
In other words, Boehner is afraid of the derision he will receive by standing up for what’s right. By noting what they said about Ted Cruz, they (McCain, McConnell, Boehner) all said, “No way would I subject myself to that….it’s too demeaning…it’s too embarrassing…I can’t deal with that.”
To say nothing of the shame the first two put on my own Scots/Irish heritage about the “fighting Irish” or the well-known orneriness of the Scots. Those first two should turn in their family name and adopt a more suitable one such as “Quisling” or “Arnold”. For those two to claim Scots/Irish heritage annoys and angers me.
No one seems able to stand up for what’s right except Ted Cruz and a few others. The “establishment” DC pukes seem to have no stomach for a fight, out of fear. Fear of losing, fear of argument but mostly, FEAR OF BEING MADE FUN OF.
And that’s just pathetic.
As Aaron Tippin sang, “You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything”. And they don’t and they have. They’ll let this horrid law go into effect in order to save their cushy seats in DC so they can go to all the dinner parties, the fundraisers, the social events and APPEAR to be the important one when their turn comes around.
There are no great men anymore. None. Save for the likes of Cruz who understands what it means to “do the will of the people” and not the other way around.
I have said it and said it. Rome, 63AD. A cut-out of power for themselves, and once elected, insulated from any criticism by the very machine they belong to. DC is now inaccessible to the people and the elected types know this and dutifully separate themselves from us. It’s intentional. It’s what they desire. They don’t see the world as you or I do. They see it in a statist, “cool kids’ table” sort of way and it’s disgusting.
They have shown their true allegiance in the past two weeks and it causes me to vote against them just as soon as I can. They know though that if they are “less socialist” than their opponent in the gerrymandered election process, they will most likely still keep their seats.
Politics though, as has been said, is a game for fools and suckers. But they do love it so. More than they love the American People.
Man, I love getting his emails! Thanks Todd!
Okay, so I just had to throw some in at the end! Till next week my friends.
