The LuLac Edition #2264, November 15th, 2012

Mitt Romney. 


Most men who have lost an election mourn in many ways. Hubert Humphrey retreated to academia for a few years, Al Gore grew a beard and Richard Nixon started to plot a comeback trail. Mitt Romney’s remarks are historic in nature because he took a tantrum to his donor base. It revealed at least to me that Romney was not qualified in spirit to be President of the United States. Romney revealed himself as a data guy, as a sales guy. His comments that President Obama bought the election through interest groups of students, minorities and people who want health care. Somehow in his jumbled state, Romney looks at these things as entitlements. Students must pay interest in getting their loans paid back. It is not free. It is racist if not downright unpatriotic to think that minorities who have jobs and are taxpayers want a hand out. In Romney’s world every minority must be drug addicted, unemployed and want something for nothing. When Romney talked about the 47% in the General Election, there are some that said he was just talking strategy. Others less kind said that it was his true colors coming out. I always thought that if Romney was elected, I could live with him because deep down I thought he was a moderate. He more than proved me wrong today. And then there is the matter of “gifts”. Government policies are not “gifts”. Political alliances are not built on “gifts”, they are built on interests of a coalition. Romney had to be listening to too much Limbaugh and Hannity. Romney’s loss did not happen this fall. It started in the primary slog of late 2011 when Romney put on the cloak of a conservative. And like one does when the weather gets more threatening, he added more layers so that by the time of the November voting, he was unrecognizable to many Americans. The American people can forgive anything, except one candidate that will not stand for something. 

TAXES ON THE $250,000 

A lot of my friends, wait, who the hell am I kidding, a minute number of my friends a and associates who make more than $250,000 a year are worried that the recently re-elected President Obama will soak them with taxes taking their hard earned money. It won’t happen. Look for that $250,000 number to be raised a bit as part of a budget deal.
Plymouth Councilman Bill Dixon. 


Bill Dixon was a duly elected member of Plymouth City Council. Bill Dixon volunteered in the community mentoring sports teams for the young people of the borough. By all accounts Bill Dixon was a model citizen. But in the late 70s Dixon was arrested and jailed. Prior to that he served in Vietnam. After his imprisonment, Dixon did what we want all prisoners to do. Get better and build a life. He built that life in Plymouth. When he went before the voters of the town, he was rewarded and honored by their votes. Now the other members of city council have voted to get rid of Dixon as a City Councilman. Predictably the Council members didn’t have money in the budget for the fight ahead. And they could not articulate why they made their decision skulking out like skunks who’s actions stunk to high heaven. Joe Holden tried to ask questions but they just mumbled incoherently. But here’s a question I have. With all of the violence shootings in Plymouth the last few years perpetrated by young black men, don’t you think the Council is running the wrong guy out of town on a rail? I guess Dixon should be grateful there’s no tar or feathers in Plymouth.
State Representative Eddie Day Pashinski. 


Corbett delaying action on health insurance shopping 
State Representative Eddie Day Pashinski reports that Time is running out for the Corbett administration to set up an online health insurance exchange so Pennsylvania residents and businesses can shop, compare and buy health insurance plans. Creating an easy-to-use clearinghouse for consumers to search for insurance and find the best deal is intended to create more competition among insurance companies, lower prices and increase access to health care for thousands of Pennsylvanians. Please take a moment to contact Governor Corbett and urge him to put politics aside by taking this step toward making it easier for people to get the best deal on health insurance. The Corbett administration requested and received $34 million from the federal government to establish the online insurance exchange but the governor is sitting on the sidelines and failing to take action. Pennsylvania risks not only losing the funding, but could be forced to use a health insurance exchange created by the federal government. I believe running our own exchange that is customized to the needs of our state is the best option for the people of Pennsylvania. I am asking the governor to immediately request an emergency extension to Friday’s deadline from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The additional time would allow his administration to finally work with all relevant parties to complete and submit the required proposal to the federal government. The time has come for Democrats and Republicans to work together to implement federal health care reform, including an affordable insurance exchange, in a way that benefits all Pennsylvanians. 


Hey how about these Generals? I respect the military, glad that people have served, I thank a vet, I buy the poppies every spring and fall but how about those Generals. I never thought they’d have groupies. When Ralph Kramden said to Alice that “She fell for his uniform”, he wasn’t kidding. Ladies love the medals and those Gold Stars. And kudos to David Patraeus for hitting the 2 decade mark. (That’s a philanderers’ point of honor when you can get a woman two decades younger than you to follow you anywhere. It almost, and I underline the word almost worth getting caught.) But what would irk me if I were a Commander in the Field or a soldier risking life and limb far away from home, what would really burn me was the amount of time and number of e mails wasted on this crap. Who e mails this much? Even in the first blush of lust, who e mails this much? The answer: people with way too much time on their hands. Maybe when the saltpeter is handed out, the Generals should get some too. 




ECTV Michael Taluto and James May of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will outline plans for special enforcement programs and safety for the upcoming winter driving session on ECTV Live during the week of November 19th. Host Judge Tom Munley will be on vacation during the week. But co-host David DeCosmo will welcome special guest host Rusty Fender to the program! "Rusty" is just one of the Stage names used by veteran broadcaster Dale Mikolaczyk who, until recently, provided daily traffic reports and an Oldies musical program on WILK radio. ECTV Live is presented each day at Noon,6pm, and Midnight on Comcast Ch19.

 NASA launches the first Saturn V rocket, successfully carrying the unmanned Apollo 4 test spacecraft from Cape Kennedy into Earth orbit......In a propaganda ceremony in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, 3 United States prisoners of war are released by the Viet Cong and turned over to "New Left" antiwar activist Tom Hayden. • – The Congress of Colombia in commemoration of the 150-year anniversary of the death of Policarpa Salavarrieta, declares this day as the "Day of the Colombian Woman"..........In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Governor Raymond Shafer declares that his first year was successful given the fact that he had a tough act to follow in the person of Bill Scranton. Shafer said that the government will be more efficient when the amendments to the Constitutional convention get approved…..and in Luzerne County, repercussions an reverberations are abundant as the political world is shook upside down with a near Democratic sweep in the Courthouse. Only Republicans Joseph Mock as Sheriff and Blythe Evans as District Attorney win offices….and 45 years ago the number one song in LuLac land and America was “Incense and Peppermint” by Strawberry Alarm Clock”.

Well when I watch David DeCosmo's show on ECTV next week, at least I'll know which Republican hacks replaced the Democratic hacks. May ran against Boback and gets a job. Taluto barely runs the Lackawanna County REpubs and gets a job. Enjoy your run might only be 4 years if Tommy Boy doesn't get a higher rating in the polls!

Once again Mr. Yonki sends chills up my spine by recalling that dreadful year of 1967. Will there ever be another year of which you are fond, young man????? Perhaps 1952?

The business of this classroom moves forward……


The youngster with whom I was going to share some of my personal time strains my credulity. HE states that he knew all along we would not get together. Well, that must mean he was not sincere in agreeing to the “wager”. As he is a liberal, I am not surprised. This young man is about as sincere as our leader when he states Obamacare will not raise taxes???? I rest my case.

The student also berates me for hurling insults whilst in his paper he insults your humble Professor time and time again. I suggest, sir, that you come to the front of the class, take the dictionary on the lectern (yes, that big book) and look up the word hypocrisy. The word is spelled H Y P O C R I S Y, just in case you have difficulty. As an educator, and a mature adult I try to take these insults from all of you couch potatoes with some jest. As you all hate your parents who give you everything, including the opportunity to waste yours and more importantly MY time in this classroom, the optimist inside of me believes that one day you will show some respect to the older crowd. Life is more than your “view”.

Perhaps from this day forward you will begin to at least attempt to behave like grown and mature adults. When I first began my career the classrooms were filled with well groomed (shirt, tie, blazer) young men who were inquisitive, insightful and respectful. Many of them worked after classes to pay for their education and they were grateful for the opportunity to learn beyond high school. IN other words, college was taken seriously. Of course, now the Liberal idiom of allowing anyone to have what they want (a.k.a. gifts) has poisoned our educational system. Any slacker who wishes can walk through these hallowed halls of Academia simply because my tax dollars subsidize it. I noticed the change in the mid-sixties during the infancy of the Great Society. It was as if the dregs of the Earth descended upon the nation’s colleges and universities. Men with long hair, women with short hair, shirts not tucked in, skirts too short, not to mention the poorest hygiene I had ever witnessed. The ideals of God, a flag and a country along with heart and home were suddenly viewed as old fashioned. I recall a young well groomed ROTC student being harassed by these filthy clowns as a future destroyer of innocent lives. In other words, our priorities ended up as a tomato in a blender.

So, from this day forward I command your respect. I come here to teach you. For if you cannot heed my lessons you will eventually learn from your mistakes. You loafers had a good week and a half. A good and decent kindly man will NOT be our next President. But now we shall see, we shall see what happens to the road our country is heading down. I fear it shall be a fearful one. As for me, I am “chilling” as you would call it this weekend. I will be sitting by my fire reading some Aristotle and Homer whilst you smoke your weed and ingest various other substances into your bodies as you read the latest smut novel. Again, I urge you all to please not get behind the wheel of any vehicle. I am not fearful for your lives, but the lives of some poor innocents.
Something to think about this morning…..
Class Dismissed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fellow Lulacers,
I think I have the only possible solution to stop the whinning of the GOP otherwise it will go on for four years. As they have indicated the R and R ticket wasnt a good one, but they really didnt lose! Obama cheated. President Obama needs to concede that fact. He also must admit to being a socialist/communist who was not born in the US and a Muslim. Worst of all he must admit to being black and a lover of fried chicken and watermelon who craves white blonde haired women. He then must abdicate the Presidency and resign taking Smilin' Joe Biden with him. The GOP then should be permitted to appoint the candidates of their choice to fill the vacancy subject to the approval of Republicans only. Other concessions may be necessary to stop the trail of tears, but I honestly believe this is the only true solution to the problems that are tearing our nation apart. As to the future, the 47% must be immediately stripped of voting priviledges and any and all entitlements such as Social Security, Medicare, college loans etc so that such a grevious situation cannot occur again. Finally a Constitutional amendment must be passed limiting the Presidency to rich white guys. I think that should cover everything, but I'm sure I left something out. Oh yes, all citizens must accept one of a few approved religious affiliations, attend services weekly and contribute 10% of their income.
That should do it.
and God Bless White America.

Nice picture of Mitt. He sure is a handsome man. Can we say goodbye to him forever now? The electorate rejected him and the GOP says he was the wrong candidate
plus his own remarks are low class and embarassing. He clearly was the wrong man at the wrong time and would have been a disaster for all but a few wealthy Americans.

$Eddie Day should pay attention -- there was a 1 month extension and there are still 16 states waiting for an answer from washington on who is going to pay for Obamacare.

"Dixon should be grateful there’s no tar or feathers in Plymouth."

No but there was plenty coming from WILK's Corbett...

Hey 9:59
That wouldnt satisfy them. Just look at the asshole who posted before you and you'll get my point.
Reality is not a concern for these arrogant, racist bastards. Call Mitt Romney what he was, the last of the draft dodgers and an SOB of the highest order! You just cant reason with fanaticism! They can look forward to one success. Mitch McConnell will be successful in denying the President another term which also wont be enough. Watch for impeachment proceedings within two years. I guarantee it!

Hands down '67 was a great year
sadly it was followed by all the tragedy that was '68. The amazing thing is that of all the great music so much crap rose to the top
of the charts! As I remember as a young man 1965-70 from Motown to Rock n Roll were represented by some of the best music ever. I for one will hate to see '67 go again.
Guess I wont be 20 again either.

Yonk - As I've stated in the past - I paid more in federal income taxes during the Bush years than I did over the course of my entire lifetime.
