Good Morning Campers,
Well, it’s that time of year again when we have to pay the bills. The charges for the website are coming up and we’d like to kindly draw your attention to the donate button to the right of your screen. Any little bit will help and any little bit will allow you to become a patron and enjoy the perks that come along with that.
What kind of perks, you ask?
Well, there is the special seating down front. Look around you. These people in the front of the room, with the good seats, table service from our wonderful wait-staff.
And speaking of which, let’s give a round of applause to the wonderful men and women of FABLE. Fairy Alcohol, Banquet and Lunch Ensemble. Aren’t they great? Yes.
Back to the perks… as well as being served, at your much more comfortable seat, much closer to the stage, you also get much better quality drink and food…again, thanks to FABLE.
You get personal invitations to all the parties, bar-b-ques, orgies, camping trips, etc. And as Lethal has so excellently shown you over the last several months, you get unlimited use of the special patron’s facilities, including and most especially the new entertainment mountain.
And if you do use those facilities, you are likely to see any number of our staff and patrons in their swim gear. You can even see these two (pointing to Ginny and Diaman who are, as usual, sitting beside each other, right up front) in their bikinis! Now, I have to tell you this, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise, but I’ve seen more cloth on half a handkerchief than is what these two call swim wear. Now, don’t be embarrassed girls, you’re both beautiful and should be proud and show off your … um … attributes.
Yes, I know. I’ll pay for this later.
I can’t hardly wait!
Anyway, please, do us a favor and donate a little bit so that we can keep up this madness that so many of us have come to rely on over the years for sanity. Hit the donate link to the right if you’d like to use PayPal, credit card or electronic bank transfer. If you don’t like those choices and would rather send cash or check, please write to me at ImpishDragon@gmail.com and I’ll happily supply you with Mr. Gray’s address. For obvious ComSec reasons I can’t divulge that address in this venue.
Okay, so lots of things to get to today, so sit back, relax, grab your coffee and …
“Have you ever seen Twenty Dollars all crumpled up?”
She gave him a sexy little smile, unbuttoned the top three buttons of her blouse and slowly reached down in her cleavage, created by a soft,silky, pushup bra, and, pulled out a crumpled Twenty Dollar bill.
He took the crumpled Twenty Dollar bill from her and smiled approvingly.
She then asked, “Have you ever seen Fifty Dollars all crumpled up?”
“No, I haven’t,” he said with an anxious tone in his voice.
She gave him another sexy little smile, unzipped her skirt, letting It drop to the floor and seductively reached into her panties and pulled out a crumpled Fifty Dollar bill.
He took the crumpled Fifty Dollar bill and started breathing a little quicker with anticipation.
“Now,” she said, “Have you ever seen 50,000 Dollars all crumpled up?”
“No way !” he said, becoming even more aroused and excited to which she replied:
“Well then, go look in the garage.”
She may have just gotten away with that….nah.
Sounds like the government. After 4 years of receiving NO annual cost of living increase, we got a 1.5% raise in January. And they were PROUD of that! After the cost of living went up over 4% each year, that was almost a slap in the face.

Jean has sent us the perfect idea for any of you who own and love your pets. What happens to your pets if you get in an accident and no one is left at home to care for them? Just like putting your emergency information in your wallet where you know the authorities will check, how about adding one of these:
It is an excellent idea. Thanks, Jean!
Dragons are wonderful and beautiful people. And I’m not just saying that because I am one. The majesty of this green can be easily seen in the grace of his stance, the spread and regality of his wings and the treasure he has. Ah Dragons!
President Barack Obama was in the Oval Office when his telephone rang.
“Hello, President Obama” a heavily accented southern voice said. “This is
Archie, down here at Joe’s Catfish Shack, in Mobile , and I am callin’ to
tell ya’ll that we are officially declaring war on y’all!”
“Well Archie,” Barack replied, “This is indeed important news! How big is
“Right now,” said Archie, after a moments calculation “there is myself, my
cousin Harold, my next-door-neighbor Randy, and the whole dart team from
Hooters. That makes eight!”
Barack paused. “I must tell you Archie that I have one million men in my
army waiting to move on my command.”
“Wow,” said Archie. “I’ll have to call ya back!”
Sure enough, the next day, Archie called again. “Mr. Obama, the war is still
on! We have managed to acquire some infantry equipment!”
“And what equipment would that be Archie?” Barack asked.
“Well sir, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Harry’s farm tractor.”
President Obama sighed. “I must tell you Archie, that I have 16,000 tanks
and 14,000 armored personnel carriers. Also I’ve increased my army to one
and a half million since we last spoke.”
“Lord above”, said Archie, “I’ll be getting back to ya.”
Sure enough, Archie called again the next day. “President Obama! I am sorry
to have to tell you that we have had to call off this here war.”
“I’m sorry to hear that” said Barack. “Why the sudden change of heart?”
Well, sir,” said Archie, “we’ve all sat ourselves down and had a long chat
over sweet tea, and come to realize that there’s just no way we can feed
that many prisoners.”
You know, I’ve been accused of the same thing at my house.
Amen! In remembrance of a conversation we had at darts last night, the number of people on government support is almost equal to that of those that actually work for a living. That means that each of us is supporting one other person. So, since mine is the only paycheck coming into our home, I’m actually supporting six people on it. Shouldn’t I at least get some sort of tax break for this shit?
-The Democrat candidate in first place is under investigation by the FBI.
– The Democrat candidate in second place calls himself a socialist…which by the way means he is more honest than the candidate in first place.
– The Democrat candidate in third place claims that ISIS was caused by climate change, and he apologized for saying that “all lives matter.”
– The Democrat candidate in fourth place thinks that America should be using the Metric System.
And this list doesn’t even include Joe Biden. I hope Biden gets into the race, we need some of his bizarre comments; we don’t have enough of that already.
There is definite truth in this cartoon. People do take themselves too seriously, which, in all essence is what Dragon Laffs and Leprechaun Laffs try to deal with every issue. Sometimes the only way to get through the Bull Shit is to laugh about it. Sometimes the only way to draw attention to an important issue is to poke fun. Our goal is to make your life a little more pleasant, a little more aware and a little more easy to deal with. Laughter and bringing things to your attention will do that.
Won’t you help us to continue to be free? Every dollar counts in your donation. Hit the button in the right sidebar to help us out.

I love this one…it’s so apropos:
A bunch of lawyers were sitting around the office playing poker. “I win!” said Johnson.
Henderson threw down his cards. “That’s it! I’ve had it! Johnson is cheating!!!”
“How can you tell?” Phillips asked.
“Those aren’t the cards I dealt him!”
A very nice pencil drawing done by one of our students. It’s a picture of Me and Diaman. I think she captured my inner beauty.

I just had to share this true story from Tom, our Great Northwest Buddy. Here it is in his own words. And yes, Tom. I do believe Murphy was paying you guys a visit at the time. But thanks for a hilarious story:
But, wouldn’t hiding a key outside kind of defeat the whole burglar proof thing?
He rushes to the presbytery to fetch the priest. He tells the priest that he thinks a miracle has happened at his place. He won’t say what it is but wants Father Flannagan to see it with his own eyes.
He brings the priest into the kitchen and asks him what he sees on the floor.
“It’s pretty obvious what we have here. Someone dropped some buttered toast, and then for some reason flipped it over so that the butter was on top.”
“No, Father, I dropped it and it landed like that.”
“Well! It’s certainly a Law of the Universe that dropped toast never falls butter side up. But it’s not for me to say it’s a miracle. I’ll report the matter to the bishop, and have him send people to interview you and take photos.”
A rigorous investigation is conducted, not only by priests of the archdiocese but also by scientists sent from the Archbishop.
The final ruling is negative. It read: “It was certainly an extraordinary event that occurred in Lethal’s room, quite outside the normal run of phenomena. Yet we have to be very cautious before ruling any happening miraculous, ruling out all possible natural explanations.

There’s a lot of talk lately about building a wall on the southern border and who’s going to pay for it and all kinds of different opinions. Well, let me present to you an excellent essay on the history of walls and how they’ve played an important part in our world’s history.
History of Border Walls in the U.S. and Around the World
Much of the 3,000-mile (4,828kilometer) Great Wall of China was constructed during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) [see timeline of Chinese history] to prevent attacks from rival forces, although officials as early as the fifth century BCE also built sections of this and other walls.
The Roman Empire was protected by natural barriers, including rivers in Europe and the Sahara Desert in North Africa. However, when the Roman Emperor Hadrian (76-138CE) visited Britain in 122 CE, he ordered a stone wall built to protect this more vulnerable northern boundary. Hadrian’s Wall stretched across England for over 73 miles (117 kilometers) and was as thick as 10 feet (3 meters). [See list of Roman emperors]
During World War II, the Nazis forced hundreds of thousands of Polish Jews into a small area of Warsaw and contained them with a wall. Within the walled territory, which was known as the Warsaw Ghetto, disease, starvation, and other pitiful conditions spread. The Warsaw Ghetto became a symbol of severe repression throughout the world during the mid-twentieth century.
The 96-mile (154-kilometer), nearly 12-foot (3.6-meter) high Berlin Wall built in 1961 by the communist German Democratic Republic (GDR) divided East Berlin from West Berlin. The wall effectively prevented most citizens in the East from defecting to the West until 1989, when the Cold War ended and the wall was demolished.
In 1986, Congress passed, and President Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), granting lawful permanent residence to 2.7 million people. Instead of ending the flow of illegal immigration, it actually caused a brief spike, as family members of the newly legal residents entered the country illegally. Within a decade, the number of illegal immigrants was back to more than five million.
In 1990, the United States constructed a 66-mile (106-kilometer) fence along the California coast from San Diego to the Pacific Ocean to deter illegal immigration. Arrests of illegal immigrants in the San Diego region declined sharply as a result of the fence, but increased nearly 600 percent in Arizona, where the number of accidental deaths also climbed as Mexicans attempted to traverse the harsh desert environment.
In 1996, President Bill Clinton signed the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act. The act increased fines for illegal aliens, provided additional funding for border patrol and surveillance, and also approved the installation of an additional 14-mile (22-kilometer) fence near San Diego. Some landowners in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas erected their own fences, often with the help of militia, but no permanent barrier had been constructed by the government in these areas until recently.
The Secure Fence Act, signed by President George W. Bush in 2006, promised 700 miles (1,126 kilometers) of fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border; however, lawsuits and protests from citizen groups halted construction. The Sierra Club and Defenders of Wildlife filed a lawsuit challenging the ability of the Bush administration to waive important environmental regulations in order to build the wall on the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area in Arizona. These regulations include the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. In October 2007, a U.S. district court sided with the organizations and stopped construction.
Many members of the Tohono O’odham Nation in Arizona also protest a section of the barrier being built on their reservation, especially since they claim they were not first consulted by the Bush administration. The Tohono O’odham have members who live on each side of the border and consider both countries their home. They value the ability to cross the border unimpeded, but also express frustration at the problems that illegal immigrants bring to their reservation. Bodies are found almost daily, as people die from exposure to the harsh desert climate or are killed by smugglers.
A virtual wall may offer a compromise for some residents who live along the border; such a wall was among the requests put forth by Representative Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), who introduced the Borderlands Conservation and Security Act (HR 2593) in 2007. The bill would mitigate some of problems cited by critics of the Secure Fence Act.
Virtual walls are not without controversy. Some Americans who live in areas in which high-tech surveillance is used complain of the invasion of privacy caused by cameras and other equipment, and safety issues related to using laser, radar, and biometric technology.
and there you have it. How about hitting that donation button and dropping a couple of bucks our way. You know you want to keep us on the air, so just do it.
Until we meet again next week.
