The LuLac Edition #2173, August 27th, 2012

GOP Fun and frivolity.


The Republican Party opened up their convention n in Tampa today. It will nominate Mitt Romney as well as Paul Ryan. This is the second time in a row that the GOP put together a truncated convention due to the weather. In 2008, even though the event was held in Minnesota, there was a day of non politics in deference to Hurricane Gustav, this day was mostly a call for action to help victims. This year the first day will be sidelined because of the impending Issac storm. I’m sure if there is any damage you’ll be hearing pledges of support and help to any possible victims. I love the Republicans. They make me laugh. They call off their events and provide a call to action for victims. But when push comes to shove, when the rubber meets the road, they don’t give a crap about people in floods. Proof positive is the fact that funding for those river gauges(the ones that actually measure the water that might flood an area) were eliminated as “ear marks”. Pork if you will. But hey, maybe they’ll get the good Cardinal of New York to say a prayer. 


The GOP will also have a running debt clock. That is hysterical too. When Bill Clinton left office, there was a surplus. George W. blew through that rather quickly with two undeclared wars paid on credit and a whole lot of other spending that even Republicans found repugnant. But they’ll blame Obama for the debt. Like I said, they are a hysterical bunch. 


In an interview, Mitt Romney made an interesting comment. He said in defending his stance on women, “‘Look, I’m the guy that was able to get health care for all of the women and men in my state. ... I’m very proud of what we did.” If that’s the case, then why does he want to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act? If he is such a friend of women’s heath, they why in the name of God does he want to scrap something he is proud of? His plan in the Bay State is actually more liberal than the one President Obama came up with caving to the ridiculous demands of the GOP in hopes of getting a law passed. Why would Romney scrap something he was “very proud of”? Just wondering!!! 


Tom Smith is the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate running against Bob Casey. He made an incredible statement regarding Abortion. In a published report, this is what Smith said, The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania said Monday that his opposition to abortion under any circumstances was something his own family had to deal with when his daughter became pregnant out of wedlock. Tom Smith, the nominee running against Democratic Sen. Bob Casey, made the comment after being asked how he would argue to keep the baby if a daughter or granddaughter were to become pregnant as a result of rape. Smith said that his daughter went through “something similar” to the decision some rape victims have to make, although she was not raped, and that she chose to keep the child. His position on abortion is to ban it without exceptions for cases of rape or incest. “I lived something similar to that with my own family, and she chose the life, and I commend her for that,” Smith said. “She knew my views, but fortunately for me ... she chose the way I thought.” Asked how that was similar to rape, Smith said: “Having a baby out of wedlock.” Is he serious? Is he nuts? Having a baby out of wedlock is not the same thing as rape. Rape is an act of aggression. Rape is an act of control. It is an act of violent aggression. It is forcing someone against their will. It is not having a baby out of wedlock. I cannot understand how any man could go through the hideous exercise of carrying a baby to term from a violent attack? Hey Tom Smith, it’s admirable that your daughter chose to have the baby. Just like many other women who choose life over an abortion. But to say rape is the same thing as having a baby out of wedlock is just plain incredible to me. 
Go to any Victim’s Resource Center and they’ll explain the difference!

Once again, you correctly point out numerous facts that no human with an IQ over 90 would disagree with.
Having said that, here comes the GOP Idiot Brigade to disagree with your facts.
For the record, this is a hell of a blog- thanks for what you do.

Clearly a case of bad parenting in Smith's case. He failed to instill the same values in his daughter he would demand in others. First she had unprotected sex outside of wedlock. Something he probably imagined only minority women on welfare would usually do. She must be such a dissappointment to him. I hope she and the child are doing well. As to Grandad he must be a complete moron. Just one more reason to vote for Bob Casey. He aint perfect, but compared to some he damn sure stands mighty tall!

Okay Dave. People should realize that Obama inherited a mess from the GOP. It is true that he had three years to fix it, but he got no help from the GOP. More importantly, he got no help from his staff who did not recognize that when you have the power you use it. People on a national basis would do well to read what you write. At least twenty times you quoted the late Bob Casey Senior who said, "You will be judged by what you did when you had the power to do it". Obama kissed the asses of the blue dog Senators and those moderates who gave him zip. Lesson learned. Nice guys finish last.

Once again Yonki shows how sexist he is with his comments about women getting knocked up. It was wrong for Tom Smith to make that sorry ass comparison but Yonki should cool down the rhetoric. LuLac has become more strident and sarcastic. And let's not even mention judgemental. To call Yonki is just wrong. I dub him a Socialist Reactionary. If we ever need a dictator.......he'd fit the bill.

Great line Yonks and it makes the point, Knocked Up is Not Raped!
