Actually, if I had my druthers, I'd go to Ireland. I'm too pale for that much sun.
Congrats, GottaLaff, for bringing this story back and getting everyone to pay attention again.
Want another huge post?Here's the scoop:Bush's Grandfather Prescott tried to overthrow Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933 becasue he wanted the country to follow Mussolini and Hitler.Not my words either...the BBC's.==================================Document uncovers details of a planned coup in the USA in 1933 by a group of right-wing American businessmen. The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans. The plotters, who were alleged to involve some of the most famous families in America, (owners of Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea, Maxwell Hse & George Bush’s Grandfather, Prescott) believed that their country should adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression.http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/history/document/document.shtml
I knew it!I had actually read some of this in some ridiculous book tracing the family trees of some famous families The Bushes were one. The Hitlers were another. ( As were the Mitfords. Speak of loving the Nazis.)Keep spreding the truth, Oxycon.
Why do I have to go to work today?! I'd so much rather stay home and read this post and the comments over and over.Thanks, Paddy, for the acknowledgment. Like you just sit around all day and twiddle your thumbs, right? I got lucky.And how about that Cliffdog? Eh, folks? He's here all week! Don't forget to tip your server on the way out.Okay, everyone, meet me in the country of your choice in 10 hours! If you can get a passport, that is.Hey! That picture moves! Woohoo! I love it!
Way to go, Gottalaff... a blogging star is born!
Who's this Gottalaff person?
Apparently, Gimme, the name "Laffy" was scrawled in crayon on a Mobil station bathroom wall, along with a phone number, on the corner of Yucca and Las Palmas in Hollywood. In a moment of weakness, and out of pity, Cliff called it.The rest is history.
