The LuLac Edition #1779, Sepember 30th, 2011



MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that the Scranton Wilkes Barre Yankees might have a hard time finding a summer home. The Stadium will be under renovation and the boys of Moosic won’t return until 2013. The Mets turned them down and that might not be a bad thing. I mean who wants to spend a summer in Newark.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that the baseball season had such a wonderful end. I have been following the game since I was 6, playing it since was 7. I never, ever saw a more incredible last day than this year’s down to the wire pennant races. As one Old Forge bar owner used to say, “Very nice!”
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that the Luzerne County GOP endorsed Rick Perry for President. Aren’t we jumping the gun on this one? Perry might very well implode. Besides the County GOP might be better off concentrating on trying to win a few County Council races this fall.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that this rain has not stopped in our region. For those doubters who think there is no climate change, take a look out your window.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that last Friday the Yankees honored Roger Maris on the 50th anniversary year of his breaking Babe Ruth’s record. The ceremony last Friday night was called because of rain and rescheduled for Saturday. There was no live telecast of it. Even 50 years later it was typical Maris luck. He was underrated for many years but no one can take away the fact that he hit 60s on Camels and Ballantine Beer. No other substances for him.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….Bank of America (BAC) plans to start charging customers a $5 monthly fee for using their debit card to make purchases. The fee will be rolled out starting early next year. A number of banks have already either rolled out or are testing such fees. But Bank of America's announcement carries added weight because it is the largest U.S. bank by deposits.
Here’s what you do. Cancel your Bank of America account. Go to a credit union. Bank of America is one of the biggest blood sucking organizations in this country. They make mafia loan sharks of yesteryear look like choir boys. To use your own money, these pigs want $110.00 a year.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…………that there are people who want Chris Christie, the Governor of New Jersey to enter the Presidential race. He said no. Please take him at his word. We don’t need a loudmouth in the White House.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……………that I actually survived driving past the Hotel Sterling the other day without getting my skull crashed in by falling debris of the Hotel Sterling. If people want it torn down, raise the money from private funds. Or get that 6 million back from CityVest. How can you justify using money to tear that building down when you have bridges and roads still destroyed, when you have people from the flood not back in their houses yet and this region far from recovery. This is insane.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……..that the House Leadership in Washington still has their Republican defenders. House Republicans on Thursday unveiled plans to cut federal money for job training, heating subsidies and grants to better-performing schools. Let’s see they backed a war in Iraq that was all smoke and mirrors spending billions, they gave subsidies to the oil companies who only charged us more money for our gas and gave tax breaks to the rich. Oh I’m sorry, job creators! But now all of a sudden they want to correct those mistakes on those disenfranchised from their jobs, the cold in winter and those students and schools that actually performed better than the average standard. What is wrong with this picture?
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that Southern (and that’s the key here folks) Beverly Perdue says that there should be no elections in 2012 so that everyone could work together without political entanglements. How stupid. So we keep the same obstructionist jerks in for another 2 years? Get rid of them. And by the way Governor, you made it almost impossible for anyone to vote for another woman Governor in your state.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that Lindsay Lohan is now reported to be fooling around with older married men. Jeez what took her so long?
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that in death, Leonard Dillion, head of the pioneering Reggae band the Ethiopians is finally getting his due. He died the other day at 68.
Dillon's Rastafarian-influenced and politicized lyrics helped pave the way for the more socially conscious reggae music that took hold in Jamaica in the late '60s. A young Bob Marley played with his group.

Chris Christie, a fat ignorant jerk who thinks he can take arrgant to a new level and still be elected to a high office.

Bank of America needs to have people begin to close their accounts. They ar stil struggling to regain their stok prices so a run on the bastards could do some good. I thoung it was a $5 per month charge so I'm thinking even $60 a year is too much

The banking system of our nation is the foundation that preserves our way of life. It has given Americans the opportunity to take out a mortgage and own a home; the opportunity to take a loan to buy a new vehicle, appliances, and on and on. I feel it not only disrespectful but downright insulting to slag the bankers for charging a mere pittance of a user fee for a debit card.
We must understand that a debit card is a privelige and not a right. The banks provide this "convenience" in order to spare the consumer the time of writing a check at a grocery, or retail store counter. This, in effect, saves time and ups productivity of cashiers and saves the businesses money that can best be served to ensure further employment opportunities.
TO be honest, class, I cannot understand why the banks have not made this very rational move long ago.
I understand that there are those who protest, but the solution is quite simple:
Write a check, cut up your card, and all will be right with your world. Of course, this will not occur as most of the young are slackers who do not wish to take the extra time to provide a written check.
Indeed, many of you in this classroom have only the most rudimentary idea of how to write a check; let alone tell time from a dial clock or watch (which most of you do no longer use).
In short, instead of whining you should pay the money and be quiet or undertake a class in basic handwriting (your exams are very difficult to dicipher).
Remember, class, A B C D E F G....if you can at least get to the R's I'll it shall at least qualify you to sign your welfare applications.
Class Dismissed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your BiSexual Female Fan has left a new comment on your post "The LuLac Edition #1779, Sepember 30th, 2011":

Climate change is real. Well no ****ing shit! The debate isn't whether it is real, it is whether it is man-made or just a bunch of hype by some huckster who has made millions off of fear and paranoia.
The climate is NOT static; it is dynamic. It changes with or without man's influence.
Before man there were ice ages; of course after those ice ages the planet rewarmed.
Before there was men drilling into the earth there were earthquakes.
Before there were human beings there were hurricanes, floods, prolonged rainy seasons and droughts.
In 1816 there was perhaps the greatest climatic aberration in recorded history. Not sure, but I don't think Henry Ford was around producing cars the.
Weather has changed whether or not humans do anything and like the dinosaur we will one day be extinct and the earth will go on.
In the mean time I want to rub your sweaty body all up against mine.

The Luzerne County GOP did NOT endorse Rick Perry. It is an open primary and the County will not endorse any Republican until after the primary. You may be referring to a straw poll that was done at an event with 20-25 people back in August. It is not binding.

NO the key is Democrat Beverly Perdue Yonk. Its also key that you left that little tidbit out Dave. Funny how she would propose this when the Dems couldn't get cr@p done when they owned the House, Senate and Presidency. So lets see: if we don't have an election we can't lose the Senate. If the Prez elections are close do the dems have an upper hand in the electoral college?

Bev and Yonk both got caught with their pants down...shall we tell Ms Lohand? It could get interesting.

Do you think the recent "Migraine - Oxley" Bank regulations bill initiated this search for revenue? Some regulations cost those with the least money the most money.
