”Good Morning Campers! How about that great issue by Lethal Leprechaun on Wednesday? Let’s give him a round of applause.” Applause starts slowly and begins to build.
”Yes!” Applause gets louder and still builds.
”That’s right!” Applause is getting thunderous and Impish has a frustrated look on his face.
”Okay, that’s enough…” It continues
”that’s…” and continues
”KNOCK IT OFF!!” The roar from the dragon is punctuated by a huge gout of flame that sears the air and crackles in the humidity. “Okay, let’s start this again…Good Morning Campers!”
”Good Morning, Sir!” A large portion of the campers emphasize the last word and there are several giggles and outright laughter scattered through out the campgrounds.
Impish pauses and considers the situation. “Okay, let’s try this…everyone who has been paid by Lethal Leprechaun to harass me this morning move over to your left.” With much shuffling of feet, the entire campgrounds moves to the side.
”I see. Okay, then, I suppose it’s time to complain about the unfairness of me having to work on an International Holiday. That’s right. I’m working this weekend and Sunday is a darn holiday! Where’s my union? Where’s my congressman or senator? Where’s my…”
”What holiday is it? Seriously?”
It’s International Star Wars Day!
McDonald’s has given their clown mascot Ronald McDonald a makeover, trading
in his jumpsuit for cropped pants and a blazer. While McDonald’s customers are
trading in their sweatpants for bigger sweatpants.
I heard about this, but haven’t seen a picture of the new Ronald McDonald. So here, for the first time, is the unveiling of the new clown…
You gotta love this one as one of the greatest all-time sports quotes:
Yankees radio announcer John Sterling’s call Friday concluded with, “A triple
play. That ends the inning!” to which ESPN newscaster, Jay Reynolds, added,
“As the vast majority of triple plays tend to do.”
Okay, thanks for that one, Mr. Obvious.
Now that, my friends, takes a special kind of talent. That is one cool looking dragon.
On the Russian / Crimean situation…
Joe Biden in Kiev Tuesday vowed that the U.S. will never recognize the Russian
annexation of Crimea and will always stand for a united and undivided Ukraine.
Biden was there giving advice on how to avoid going to war with Russia. In
other words we’re going to war with Russia.
Joe Biden made every effort to raise his profile during his visit to Ukraine. There
has been a lot of speculation, but now it’s becoming clear that he will run for
president. In an effort to appear more presidential today, Joe Biden launched
a website that doesn’t work.
Russian troops in Ukraine were confronted by Ukrainian nationalists Tuesday.
They’ve hated each other five hundred years. It just shows that in a land where
there are no Jews, no Arabs, no black people, no red people, no brown people
and no Asians, people can improvise.
The State Department said satellite photos show Vladimir Putin has sent Russian
troops into eastern Ukraine today. What’s stopping him? Putin has been given a
promise by Obama that the US will not use military force against Russia and
England can’t even get that.
Joe Biden said the U.S. will help Ukraine with financial aid as long as the leaders
tackle corruption. Because if anything stops corruption, it’s bribing someone
to stop corruption.
He is Edward “Ed” Mezvinsky, born January 17, 1937.
Then you’ll probably say, “Who is Ed Mezvinsky?”
Well, he is a former Democrat congressman who represented Iowa ‘s 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977.
He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon.
He was outspoken saying that Nixon was a crook and a disgrace to politics and the nation and should be impeached.
He and the Clintons were friends and very politically intertwined for many years.
Ed Mezvinsky had an affair with NBC News reporter Marjorie Sue Margolies and later married her after his wife divorced him.
In 1993, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, then a freshman Democrat in Congress, cast the deciding vote that got President Bill Clinton’s controversial tax package through the House of Representatives.
In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.
Ed Mezvinsky embezzled more than $10 million dollars from people via both a Ponzi scheme and the notorious Nigerian e-mail scams.
He was found guilty and sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.
After serving less than five years in federal prison, he was released in April 2008 and remains on federal probation.
To this day, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.
About now you are saying, “So what!”
Well, this is Marc and Chelsea Mezvinsky.
That’s right; Ed Mezvinsky is Chelsea Clinton’s father-in law.
Now Marc and Chelsea are in their early thirties and purchased a 10.5 million dollar NYC apartment.
Has anyone heard mention of any of this in any of the media?
If this guy was Jenna or Barbara Bush’s, or better yet, Sarah Palin’s daughter’s father-in- law, the news would be an everyday headline and every detail would be reported over and over.
And yet liberals say there are no double standards in political reporting.
And people are already talking about Hillary as our next President!
Lying and corruption seem to make Democrat candidates more popular.
When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.
In God We Trust!
“I love this country, it’s the government I’m afraid of”
It sure is a mystery. I’m sure there’s a liberal conspiracy involved somewhere!!!
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced plans for the city to build the Barack Obama College Preparatory High School that opens in three years. The school is already plagued with problems. People are trying to enroll their kids in the school, but the website’s not working.
Hillary Clinton said Saturday older women can still make a difference in politics. She said she doesn’t know if she’ll run for president. With three hundred million Americans, what are the odds she’s the only one in the country who doesn’t know she’s running for president in 2016.
It scares the crap out of me. Gee, I’m sorry, I was thinking out loud. But it does. Can you imagine if the Wicked Witch of the West was given the keys to Oz? Is it any different? Putting this incompetent bitch in the Whitehouse would amount to a much worse fate than Dorothy could ever conceive of!
Iran’s Ayatollah Khameni began promoting a baby-making campaign, offering a
gold coin to every couple that has a baby. He wants to double Iran’s population.
If he’s serious about more pregnancies, he may have to join the sixteenth century
and legalize cleavage and alcohol.
Okay, I know that this is normally Lethal Leprechaun’s bailiwick, but I heard this on the news last night and it just pissed me off to no end.
You want to know why the anti-gun nuts keep getting traction on their claims, because of people like these…
A four-year old boy in the US has accidently shot and killed his 19-month old brother (with) a handgun, the fifth such tragic incident in the country within a month involving children.
A 9mm handgun had been stored in a nightstand in their parents room and the boy pulled the trigger while the gun was still in the drawer, striking his younger brother in the chest. Their father was in the living room and the bedroom door was open.
Additionally, the article from the Indian Express (although you can do a google search and find it in many other sites) goes on to site:
- On April 18, a three-year-old girl in Cache County, Utah, accidentally shot and killed her two-year-old brother.
- The day before that, a 6-year-old boy accidentally killed a woman in South Carolina when he shot a loaded gun he found in a car.
- Also in April, a five-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed a seven-year-old girl while playing at a birthday party in Gaston, South Carolina.
- Finally, a two-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his 11-year-old sister while playing with a handgun in Philadelphia.
Why were these guns where these kids could get them? Why were they not under lock and key? And can you understand how the millions of gun-owners who DO take proper care and protection of their firearms are made to look bad in the areas where these types of things occur?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge advocate of the right for people to be armed. In our day and age it is even more important than ever. But, people, you have to be aware of your personal weapons at ALL TIMES! I am a big believer in the proper training in the use of firearms. I think in most instances, if you can’t prove you’ve been trained by the military or some other organization (the 4H comes to mind) then you should have to take some safety training before being allowed to purchase a weapon. Most gun dealers either offer the training themselves, or have resources to provide such training and it’s usually at a very reasonable price.
But, you can tell, that in an area where lawful gun ownership is apparent, crime goes down. No where else has it been more exactly proven than in a situation that happened right close to home. Well, home for me, anyway. Here’s a copy of an article from Fox 59 News in Indianapolis, near to where I live:
Correlation between NRA convention and dip in teen violence?
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 2, 2014) – Indianapolis Metropolitan police experienced fewer problems with teen violence last weekend.
That’s when the NRA convention was downtown.
About 75,000 people attended the convention, and many of them were legally armed.
IMPD says it was the most peaceful Saturday in the month of April downtown.
Here’s a look at the stats for Saturday Night Problems in the month of April:
- April 5: 300 teens at Circle Centre (the center of downtown is a circle with a monument in the middle and a HUGE shopping mall called Circle Centre Mall right on the circle. The entire circle is huge hangout and the police actually block off portions of the circle so you cannot cruise around the circle on the weekend nights in cars, you can only go half way round and then get back off again.)
- April 12: 200 teens in large groups
- April 19: 400 teens and shots fired
- April 26 (NRA Convention): 100 teens, dispersed quickly
Now, I think it’s pretty easy to draw conclusions based on the above information, although I’m sure I hear the anti-gun crowd mumbling about “that ain’t provin’ nuttin’!” But it does show, that when bad people with guns know that there are good people with guns around, they are more apt to mind their manners. It’s been said, that in the “Wild West” when everyone (just about) carried a sidearm openly, it was one of the politest societies in history.
What do you think?
One more thing. I have been told, off the record, by more than one member of local law enforcement, that they wished EVERYONE in the county had and kept a firearm. They are 100% sure that it would be a much safer and less crime county.
Hit me back in the comments and tell me what YOU think.
Until next week, I remain cheerfully yours!
