The LuLac Edition #2092, June 15th, 2012

"Maybe I'm Amazed" logo. 


MAYBE I’M AMAZED………but shouldn’t be surprised that so much money is being spent in this Presidential Election year. There are so many political action committees raising so much money that this is going to break all records. Plus, if you are individual and you have a lot of loot, you can write one big check to attack a candidate or support it. Then there was Sarah Jessica Parker who hosted a dinner at $40,000 a pop to dine with the Obamas. With all due respect to Matthew Broderick, I’d maybe take a loan of $40,000 to not dine with Sarah Jessica Parker. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….that the folks at Cigna Health Care are telling people they are hiring more than 140 new people. The reason why they need to hire so many new people is because the place, I’m told is a meat grinder and goes through more people than Carter goes through liver pills. And when qualified people with experience apply, they go for the kids. What a joke. My opinion only but I’m sure there will be many who will agree. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…………that work is progressing very well at PNC Park. I drove by there the other day and the upper deck is now off and things look on track for 2013. I might have mentioned it before but once you had baseball here for over 20 years, there is a void in the gold old summer time. Looking forward to next year at the old ball park. For the past 5 years, LuLac has gathered together a bunch of cronies and picked one game at the end of the year. We’re going to miss that this summer. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED… the total grace shown by Indiana Senator Richard Luger who has been nothing but statesmanlike after getting beaten by a right wing zealot. Jeb Bush had it right the other day when he said there is no place for him (Jeb Bush) in this modern day GOP. If Romney is defeat6ed, look for Jeb Bush to lead a coalition to take the party back from the “I want my country back” crazies of the right. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…… at the way people meet and greet me in public in reaction to LuLac. It is most rewarding that people read and when there is disagreement, it is done very professionally and politely. Thanks. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……at the number of people who are dying to know the identity of Professor Milburn Cleaver, a frequent poster on this site. I too am curious as to the sex, location, and whereabouts of the good Professor. While many people do not like his posts, he states his opinion somewhat respectfully and always has a ton of insight. So whatever the identity, I’m glad he writes and gives his thoughts. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED… the speed in which the Jerry Sandusky trial is moving. The Judge is motoring along and seems to have been the anti Lance Ito. Ito, you recall was the Judge in the O.J. trial that enabled the whole thing to become a circus. You could tell that was not going to happen here. One of the by products of the o.J. trial was how not to conduct a high profile trial. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that it has been 17 years since the killing of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman. Plus it’s been four years ago this week for the anniversary of the shocking death of NBC Newsman Tim Russet. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..........that in this same week in the year 2003, Roger Clemens got his 4,000th strikeout and 300th win. Now 9 years later he is awaiting his fate from a jury who will decide whether he lied to Congress or not. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that the “remake” of Dallas this week featured a cast of backstabbers that would put the original cast to shame. Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Larry Hagman and his maniacal eyebrows return to TV for this do over. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that the guy who is accused of torching the Plains Little League field was caught because he dropped h9is cell phone during the course of the crime. He allegedly set the fire to cover up the crime of making off with a deep fryer. If you can afford a cell phone, I’m thinking you can afford a deep fryer. Unless he got one of those cell phones from the government. 
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…….at what you find when you are looking for something else. As you know governor Rendell was in town Friday night to sign copies of his new book at Barnes & Noble. Two nights before, Mrs. LuLac and I were trying to find the 2003 invitations from the Rendell inaugural. I figured it would be a nice thing for him to sign.We looked through everything and never found them. But we found Mrs. LuLac’s birth announcement, her father’s selective service identification, pictures of my late mother as a young girl as well as pictures of Mrs. LuLac as a little girl. So even though the original search failed, the fruits of our labor were more than we could have expected.

The O.J. trial was a road map on how not to handle a big case. I like this Judge. He reminds me of Edwin Kosik. Sanduskey is toast.

Mr. Yonki,
I too am amazed....not that students wish to know my resume, but that they are incapable of doing very simple RESEARCH.
I have been accused by some class members of holding the lowly position of mini mart clerk or janitor. These are the very so called "compassionate liberals" who have actually shown their disdain for such people by believing they are insulting me with the accusation.

Unlike they, I believe that every job has a purpose. That is why I have suggested that some of the slackers in this class stop using their parents money to waste in here, but to apply for a custodial position or at best one of a sanitation worker. Two very important jobs.
Again, class, I cannot stress enough the importance of research. Unfortunately, most of you think research to mean one thing: Google. means getting off of your lazy backsides and doing good old fashioned leg work, or library time. Most of you have never been in a library I am certain.
Nevertheless, if you do your proper homework, in due course you shall have your answer to my identity.
I will tell you one thing in closing today's session. How many mini mart clerks do you know who can predict the upcoming months job numbers with 95% accuracy????
Something to think about this morning.....
Class Dismissed!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is one to turn your head. I'm thinking that Jeb Bushis ripe to become a Democrat. Stop laughing, anything is possible and just think what a boost it would mean to have a guy of his quality going in our direction. This might be breakfast conversation.

Agree with you totally on S J Parker! That whole Sex in the City show was/is annoying. A bunch of whiney upper class women who are looking for the type of guy who never existed to begin with.
Total Hell would be spending time in a room with the best flat screen tv, and only Sex in the City playing on it.

I think the Judge in the Jerry Sandusky trial wants to get this sorry episode of Pennsylvania and Penn State criminal history over! If we had more people like him in the congress, maybe as a country we could get something accomplished in the country. Like the nightly news, it's the same garbage of arguments year after year.

If each of us could step outside any political biases we might have for just a moment and examine a new perspective, here's what we might see.

---The TSA grabs your business whether you voted Republican or Democrat.
---The drones fly over your backyard and won't fly around you just because you're a Republican or a Democrat.
---When the bank comes to foreclose people's homes, they don't care if you're a Republican or a Democrat, you still get put out in the street.
---Studies show Republicans and Democrats both continue to file for bankruptcy.
---You must purchase health care insurance, or pay a penalty, regardless of whether you're a Republican or a Democrat.

Did I miss anybody? Sure I did, lots of other individuals, who might be black, white, those who believe in God, non-believers, the list goes on and on.

So does anybody see racism here because I sure don't.

Mankind shares a single common bond--the desire to be free.

Without freedom, you can't be anything--not even a blogger.
Without freedom, you can't do anything--except what you're told to do.
