The LuLac Edition #2003, March 30th, 2012

"Maybe I'm Amazed" logo.


MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that Mitt Romney has a 49% disapproval rating among likely voters. That is nearly half of the voting population who essentially say you stink! Arlen Specter had a 40% disapproval rating and that was very hard to fight and come back from. Unless Romney makes a bold choice for Vice President, he is going to be toast.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that the GOP mainstream seems to be lining up behind Romney despite the misgivings. The latest nod came from former President George H. W. Bush.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that the typewriter was invented 145 years ago in Milwaukee in 1867.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….. that it took a basketball legend, Magic Johnson to save the storied franchise of baseball, them bums, the Dodgers.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that Attorney Tony Lupas was using the old walker when he went to federal court yesterday. Hey, I use implements like a cane but he looked like he could out run me in a footrace.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….that WBRE TV is finally going to simulcast its news product with WYOU TV. It will be two years that local news was jettisoned from Channel 22 after they virtually wrote the book on local news since TV started around here.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED… the total ignorance and stupidity that I hear and see concerning the Health Care law. The other day I heard a guy on Sue Henry that claimed to be a doctor from Hazleton who boohooed and said Obama shut his practice down. He also said that the Affordable Health Care Act was going to have doctors that were friends of Obama’s prosper and others would be left in the cold. When he started to talk about Nazis, that’s when I put on Dan Patrick. And then there was this gem from the Citizen’s Voice comment line: “This is a attempt to insure 30 Million undocumented immigrants and have the average taxpayer pick up the tab. Government is forcing individuals to become a part of this scheme or be penalized. We are losing more freedoms everyday this guy is still in office. Sad day for America if this becomes law”. What an outrageous lie. Where the hell does this dope come up with 30 million undocumented immigrants? Hey guy, there are 65 million women wearing mini skirts on any given day in Southern California. I’m saying it so it must be act! And where are we losing our freedoms every day? What border are we stopped at when we go to another state? Has anyone knocked on your door to inspect your home? Has anyone asked to see your proof of citizenship? Losing our freedoms? I am so tired of the ignorance that brings out the morons who feel compelled to share it with the rest of us.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….that when I go on Facebook or write about the positive aspects of the health care law, I get no response from the right wingers out there who think this will be the decline of America. I just don’t get it, they write a blank check to wage two wars but all of a sudden get religion on dollars and cents when it comes to health care.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….that Bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs has outlived moist of his country and western contemporaries. Scruggs was a mainstay on the rand Old Opry and became famous with his rendition of the Beverley Hillbillies theme song.

This week's special commemorative issue of Newsweek on the Beatles.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that Newsweek has a special 11 dollar commemorative issue on the very first release in 1962 of the Beatles. It’s great. The very first release, “Love Me Do”. By the way, if you want to hear an excellent program on the Fab Four, tune in the Beatleed Hour on WRKC FM 88.5 every Friday night at 7pm.

MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..Pope Benedict XVI demanded more freedom for the Catholic Church in communist-run Cuba and preached against “fanaticism” in an unusually political sermon before hundreds of thousands at Revolution Plaza, with President Raul Castro in the front row. Later, the president’s brother, revolutionary leader Fidel, grilled the pontiff on changes in church liturgy and his role as spiritual leader of the world’s Catholics. Fidel drilling the pontiff on religion? They should have stuck to baseball.

Darryl Hannah and Payton Leigh. Gort, Valenti, Jenkins and I are trying to raise airfare for these two to come to Blogfest tonight.

A smiling Mike Stone and Megan Piper on his computer.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….that Mike Stone, a senior at Tartan High in Oakdale, a St. Paul suburb, used Twitter to invite Megan Piper, an adult film star, to accompany him to the big dance, ie his Senior Prom. She was down with that - provided the teen would pay her airfare. Then school district officials got wind of Stone's plan and told him to try another date option. You have to love school officials, their answer to the kid, officially, you cannot bring a "non-Tartan student" to the prom without school approval. Oh there you go! That makes perfect sense. Meanwhile Piper who never went to her own prom wanted to go and the erstwhile teen is trying to raise the money for the porn star to visit. Only in America.

Students, I must say that Mr. Yonki is beginning to slide in this classroom and I state this with disappointment. Although I hold great hope that he will rebound following spring break.

I well understand that Mr. Romney's approval rate is 49 percent. We must realize, however, that he is competing with several other outstanding candidates for the nomination. Once the nomination is secured (and it will be, make no mistake) his approval ratings will fly through the stratoshpere.
The VP choice rarely, if ever, impacts a race for the Presidency to the point of deciding a win or a loss.
The myth that LBJ helped Kennedy win Texas by securing his home state is just that. In 1960 Texas was predominantly a Democrat stronghold. Even Jimmy Carter took the state in the 1976 election.
Sarah Palin in 2008 only served to bring down the McCain campaign as his advisors allowed the media to spread lies without retort.
As for the Beatles, this group of four drugged out slacker hippies did more to drag down the previously responsible youth culture than anything ever seen beforehand.
Celebrating an anniversary of an accompishment (?) of these four degenerates is uncalled for. We may as well celebrate the day Adolph, Josef, Heinrich and Herman gathered to plan the holocaust.
In closing,
As for the blogfest being held this evening, I am still on the fence as to whether or not to attend.
Not only do I fear for my own life, but my family's. I do not need one of you delinquint slackers following me home and staking out some heinous crime. Perhaps I shall appear incognito as a scientific observer, much the way Diane Fosey did.
We shall see.
REgardless, I urge you all to take it easy on the alcohol and drugs. There are other lives to consider rather than your own Walter Mitty ones.
Something to think about this morning.
Class Dismissed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I grew up with and enjoyed the Beatles, let my hair grow long, learned how to play guitar, joined a band, went to college, etc. yet somehow I can see the Professor's point and must agree to it's validity.

I would like to point out that there are many of us who held our ground on the drug stuff but took advantage of the loosening of the reins that started with James Dean and enjoyed the 60's hippe chicks.

Personally I always figured it was just a stage that we'd soon grow out of.

As I look back and around it appears I was wrong.

We haven't won the war on poverty, drugs, racism, homophobia, intolerance, slavery, prostitution, waste, or poor spelling. We gave peace a chance and nothin' really improved now, has it?

Even worse - no one has the b@11s to admit it let alone address it. Any takers?
