Remembering EFA

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been two years to the day since we lost our brother-in-arms, LC EFA. We’ll be sending up a toast to him, as he’s swapping tales and getting our ancestors drunk on his homemade rum.

Here he is a few years ago, happily cradling his twins. He was such a good and proud daddy.

Faine

Rest in peace, brother.

F.E.T.E.

    I did not have the honor of knowing the gentleman. However, perhaps he’s still watching over things.

    Damn I miss him.

    When I worked during every God forsaken hours imaginable, I could always buzz him and he’d be up and about in our various chatrooms. He was always up for a fun, irreverent time at the expense in numeral inferiour groups and individuals. :sad:

    Like RR I got to know EFA over the late night hours when I was running a support center for the company. We wasted tons of useless time talking about everything under the Sun.

    Damn I miss him!

    I will do this in honor of EFA!!!

    One of my favorite days of the year. I (heart) going into the ethnic Irish bars and order a black and tan infuriating the Micks.

    Then I’ll start in with the Kennedy jokes.. :em01:

    Rad, here’s one for you to try out on ‘em:

    Q: “Why don’t they put showers on any of the Kennedy boats or airplanes?”

    A:“Because they always wash up onshore!”

    Sláinte, EFA!

    And the good times continue. Benjamin Netanyau, in spite of Obama, won reelection and apparently did so in a landslide. News reports are saying he won’t have to form some sort of coalition government.

    Il Douche was so angered over the news that he missed an easy putt.

    And a true Kennedy Story.
    My father once dated one of the daughters….Once. Said she was dumb as a sack of broken hammers.
    Another true Kennedy story.
    My grandfather was Joe Senior’s lawyer. When my father asked my Grandfather why, Gramps, (Who I never knew), said “The money’s good even if he isn’t.”

    OK, 3 more.
    Q: How do you clear a room of Kennedys?
    A: Demand a paternity test.

    Q: What’s the perfect gift for a girl dating a Kennedy?
    A: Swimming lessons.

    A guy walks into a bar and says “Gimme a ‘Joe Kennedy’.” Bartender asks “What’s a ‘Joe Kennedy’?”
    “You give me some bootlegged rum and my family nurses it for 100 years.”

    Telling jokes, of any type, is the perfect tribute to EFA. Can’t believe it’s been two years. I still remember how he was the absolute center of the party at the Floriduh Rottfest he attended, and that’s quite a feet considering the attendees. Bangie had a real soft spot for him, it was hard not to.

    Rest In Peace Eric, we miss you.

    EFA, gone, but not forgotten. Damn, but chatting with him on the IM in the wee hours was fun.

    We shared so much in common. Two rednecks separated by two hemispheres, but still so much alike.

    Fair ye well, my friend. You are missed.

    It’s been 2 years already?

    Damn, EFA. Why do the good ones always have to go first?

    Oh, and a Kennedy Joke:

    If you’re ever in Dallas, order a JFK Special.

    It’s really only a pint of draught, but you have to blow the head off before you drink.

    Management is too busy digging fallout shelters and stockpiling potassium iodide tablets to blog, which is smart since Queen Barry is doing everything he can to make sure Iran gets the bomb.

    Exactly. It is now 3/28 and much has happened. Netanyahu won and Obama threw a hissy fit. He called the presidents of Iran, N. Korea, and Venezuela to congratulate on their victories in “elections.” But not Netanyahu.

    Then, his administration is considering removing their veto on the paleoswinians call for a country in the UN. And THEN he releases a top-secret file about the Israeli nuclear program. Basically telling the world where their reactors are so it will be easy for Iran to bomb them, or one of the terrorist agencies they sponsor to send someone to destroy it. Or cause a meltdown. Whatever.

    If that wasn’t enough, he accused Israel of spying on America’s talks with Iran and revealing secrets they’d prefer the American people not know.

    He’s handing over the Middle East to Iran. But Caroline Glick says it so much better.

    The administration is assisting Iranian Shi’ite proxies in their battle to defeat Islamic State forces in the Iraqi city of Tikrit. It has said nothing about the Shi’ite massacres of Sunnis that come under their control.

    Parallel to its endless patience for Tehran, the Obama administration has been treating Israel with bristling and ever-escalating hostility. This hostility has been manifested among other things through strategic leaks of highly classified information, implementing an arms embargo on weapons exports to Israel in time of war, ending a 40-year agreement to provide Israel with fuel in times of emergency, blaming Israel for the absence of peace, expressing tolerance and understanding for Palestinian terrorism, providing indirect support for Europe’s economic war against Israel, and providing indirect support for the BDS movement by constantly accusing Israel of ill intentions and dishonesty.

    Indeed, until 2009, the very notion that a day would come when an American president would prefer an alliance with Khamenei’s Iran to its traditional alliances with Israel and the Sunni Arab states was never even considered. But here we are.
