The LuLac Edition #1685, July 20th, 2011




With the current budget negotiations going on, and President Obama saying "everything" should be on the table, one letter writer to the local paper questioned the funding for 2 wars. Here's his letter from the Citizen's Voice:
President Obama and some Democrats say "everything has to be on the table" in the deficit reduction talks. But not everything is on the table.
The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq need to be on the table. We accomplished nothing there and aren't going to accomplish anything and it's costing us $2 billion a week. If we're looking at a balanced budget why not start with money were just flushing down the toilet? I think staying in Afghanistan but getting rid of Medicare and Social Security is a bad decision. It's time to focus on rebuilding America.

It was 42 years ago tonight that America landed on the moon. Consider this: only 12 people walked on the moon. All of them were Americans. Having lived through that period, the technology innovations, the excitement, the monumental challenge of going that far........having seen that first hand, I shake my head in wonder as I see politicians in Washington unable to articulate a vision for a plan here on earth. If Presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon had to contend with the current group of clowns in the House and Senate, we wouldn't be celebrating a lunar anniversary. I'm sure of that.

Could not agree with the letter writer more. Well said, Sir.

Still believe the Moon Landing did not happen. I watched it in the Day Room of an Army outfit at Fort Knox. Said it then and I'll say it again, "Dont believe it!" It was all too neat, too on schedule. Honor the words of the slain President. Can Do! Get it done. Unlike what was going on in Southeast Asia!

These days, before allowing a moon landing Republicans would require that first the President agree that the sun orbits the earth. There probably would need to be a constitutional amendment.
