The LuLac Edition #1605, May 20th, 2011



Maybe I’m Amazed…….that the ballot position especially in the County Council races in Luzerne County had almost no bearing at all in the final tallies. Apparently the voters are a little more savvy than we thought.
Maybe I’m Amazed…..that the Luzerne County GOP could only nominate one Judge in the spring primary. The vote disparity between Richard Hughes and Jim Haggerty was about 3,000 votes. Maybe a slate card might have helped.
Maybe I’m Amazed…..that in Lackawanna County the big winners were Jim Wansacz and Corey O’Brien. I thought there was a great chance this would happen but wasn’t 100% sure. It will be interesting to see how the fall campaign shakes out. The GOP winners,(Bill Jones and Patrick O’Malley) as of Thursday, have not even had a strategy meeting.
Maybe I’m Amazed……that the average dream only lasts three or four seconds. And the nightmares just get longer and longer.
Maybe I’m Amazed……that a criminal tried to rob the law office building occupied by the Mayor of Kingston Jim Haggerty. These cons certainly get an award for world’s dumbest criminals. Haggerty might have lost for Judge but by alerting the police, he gets the Bob Kadluboski Batman award.
Maybe I’m Amazed…… that this rain isn’t letting up. I mean this is getting very, very nasty. Will our summer be a wet one? What a place to live weather wise. I had an old boss who told me you had to be tough to live here, we have horrible winters, rainy springs and humid summers.
Maybe I’m Amazed…… that Arnold the Governor was such an idiot. His next movie should be “Dangerous Liaisons”. Cheating rule # 1, keep it out of the house. Cheating rule #2; if you’re going to risk it, risk it with a looker not someone who looks like your Aunt Sally.
Maybe I’m Amazed…… that President Obama actually said that he recommends that Israel go back to pre 1967 borders along with the entire middle east. Peace in that region is important but not at the expense and protection of one of our allies. One of the reasons why those borders were changed after the ’67 war was because Israel was attacked, fought back, claimed the land and won the war. Which is what I thought your were supposed to do in a war.
Maybe I’m Amazed........ that it was just 40 yeas ago that these two great vocalists sang these two songs that still stand the test of time.

A look at the map of Israel's pre-1967 borders will clearly show that in a future war Israel could be snapped in half like a twig in very short order. These borders are absolutely indefensible.

But, using the President's logic... perhaps we should give most of the American southwest back to Mexico.

In fact, give everything back to everyone. Let's take things back to the borders of 1760, before we had the audacity to rebel and establish a nation.

Let's give the whole heartland back to France. And the southwest...on second thought, give it back to Spain along with Florida. England gets the east coast. Everyone will be happy!

Except, of course, the Indians.

This morning, Bob Dylan's lyrics are going through my head:

Well he's surrounded by pacifists who all want peace
They pray for it nightly that the bloodshed must cease
Now they wouldn't hurt a fly. To hurt one they would weep
They lay and they wait for this bully to fall asleep

He's the neighborhood bully.

Every empire that's enslaved him is gone
Egypt and Rome even the great Babylon
He's made a garden of paradise in the desert sand
In bed with nobody under no one's command

He's the neighborhood bully.

What has he done to wear so many scars?
Does he change the course of rivers? Does he pollute the moon and stars?
Neighborhood bully standing on the hill
Running out the clock time standing still

Neighborhood bully.
