The LuLac Edition #2271, November 22nd, 2012

Hillary Clinton. 


Diplomatic efforts sped up Tuesday to bring the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict to an end. Increasingly worried about the conflict, the United States has also intensified efforts to broker a truce between both the warring states. On Wednesday, a ceasefire was announced between Israel and Hamas with Hamas claiming the credit. But it was the involvement of Egypt that got the thing to a peaceful end. All of this activity has centred on US Secretary of State Hillary. This latest trip might give the Secretary an opportunity to do something her husband could not, get a true peace going in the Middle East. It is apparent that Clinton has been the go to person for Foreign Policy in this administration. Ironically it is Clinton who has made the Democratic party stronger in foreign policy than the Republicans. It is true that Clinton will have to answer to history about Benghazi. But it should be pointed out that that it was an attack on a consulate that was perpetrated by our enemies. How history will treat this vent and Clinton’s role in it will have much to do with whether she is a candidate for President in 2016. Or does Clinton want to take the path of least resistance and maybe try for the Supreme Court? My friend Gort 42 brought the specter up a few weeks ago on his site. And it isn’t as if the current occupant in the White House doesn’t owe the Clinton clan.


State Senator John Blake announces that Veteran’s license plates are going to be available. PennDOT has made available a new series of license plates designed to honor veterans and active duty members of the Armed Forces who have received medals. The new plates display the Distinguished Service Cross, Distinguished Flying Cross, Navy Cross, Air Force Cross, Silver Star, Bronze Star for Valor and Bronze Star. PennDOT also offers specialty plates honoring individuals who served in the military and in major conflicts, ranging from World War II to Operation Enduring Freedom.
The crowd stampede on Black Friday. 


I worked all of my life on holidays. Starting in broadcasting, as the single guy I worked on all of the holidays. The only day that I lobbied for was Christmas Eve because we always had the big Christmas Eve supper. So I was used to it. But broadcasting is a little different than retail and I remember many of my friends having Thanksgiving off before Black Friday. But things changed when Wal Mart and K Mart started opening on Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving, once a day of family, reflection and gratitude has now become a grab and go day. Grab and go some dark meat and stuffing at mom’s, load up the car and over the woods not to Grandma’s place but to a store where you waited in oline to grab your big sale item. A co worker of mine has a second job at Wal Mart and he has told stories of being pushed up against a wall by screaming, avaricious shoppers. Workers are pushing back by telling the stores they’d like some time with their families. The workers want quality time before Black Friday. The stores want to gain a financial advantage. It’s a stalemate. But the people who can break the tie are those people, those Americans, those LuLacers who must decide what is more important, spending time with their family or standing in line to get a deal. Until the latter becomes a lower priority than the former, there will be more of this nonsense.

So if Michael Savage says the election was stolen, then by Jesus it was stolen. Savage now heard on WILK from 9 to midnight was yammering on while Mrs. LuLac was cooking the yams in the oven tonight. On the way to the bathroom, I hard Dr. Savage saying that Obama was still an illegitimate President and the Democrats stole the election. By three million votes. I guess they didn’t take the advice of Joe Kennedy and decided not to pay for more than a few hundred thousand vote margin! Anyway, I said the other night that Savage should stop talking about his dog Teddy. But now after hearing this, I wish he’d keep on talking about his pet instead of spewing this hate.

Yonk, Savage is on the air spewing his hate for one simple reason, WILK wants it, simple as that. They have Rush Limbaugh and before him that have Sue Henry who is so caught up in Republican politics that she seems willing to give up every opportunity she and her family might have for happiness. Absolutely brain soaked in Conservatism and anti every Democrat program available but I never hear her speak about her education, who paid for it? Her children are in the process and who pays for it? I'm not talking about the sacrifices for a grad and high school Catholic education, I am talking about after grade 12. I've become so sick of WILK that I find myself tuning in to Serious radio more and more. I guess the firing of Shadoe/Rusty was the last straw. He was the last voice of reason on WILK and until he joins another station, I will remain a "Serious" person. Happy Thanksgiving and by the way, the only way I planned to be at WalMart today is if the employees pull a walk off, I will join their picket line. These stores have bastardized a day of true thanks and family gatherings. My attitude is shame on the people who shop on the Thanksgiving.

you hit the nail on the head; everyone wants to blame the retailer, when the blame is the consumer who shows up to shop

Look the reason why people get "tired" of the same thing on the radio is because there is a consistency there that makes t successful in the first place. Love Sue, love WILK.

You hit the nail on the head on both comments. Holidays have gone the way of greed on the part of customers and companies.
Sue Henry is no longer listenable. Her presentation and naturally her callers are totally one sided. Those with dissenting views have
caught on and just gone away. We do not have representative local talk radio and the national side with Rushbo and Savage are anti American.
At least Webster and Nancy have some back and forth although the TV thing just makes them look foolish. I still think there is a spot for Dave Yonki if only once or twice a week.
With Voice Tracking etc we barely have local radio at all. Too bad.

Note: Ego shot to Corbett. Not mentioned at all. Ouch!

I totally disagree. I think Sue is the conservative/GOP voice that is lacking in both Luzerne and Lackawanna county. Her listeners are like minded and support that belief. But she has been on the air for a long time but you still see voters in lockstep with Democrats. The TV gig with Webster and Nancy is obviously a chore. FOX TV is horrible in the way it presents programs technically. I shudder every time there is a close Giants game because we can count on them to screw it up. As far as Yonk going on any radio station, there needs to be more hours in a day for him to do that. And while I love Steve Corbett in the afternoon, and thought Rusty Fender/Shadoe Steele was great, I'm glad Steve won't be singing anymore. It made him look less credible.

Right. I loved Shadoe's program but that 9:15PM segment was deadly. Yonk, you might remember this but on WARM there was a guy in the early 60s with a great baritone who sang on his radio show. I can't remember his name but he had a good voice. That's always a good starting point.
