The LuLac Edition #2446, June 14th, 2013


Today when I went to WYLN TV 35 to do “Topic A” after a long absence, the TV station’s fine reporter Anne Gownley did a story about an autistic 18 year old boy that awaited eagerly every day to wave to the school bus that passed by his mother's business. He looked forward to it. Well, apparently yesterday a group of students riding the bus started to shout the F bomb at him and threw objects too. They called him every obscenity in the book and were totally out of hand. 
But the rub to this story is that the students on the bus were FIRST GRADERS! 
This is a disturbing story because it tells you all you need to know about how kids are being raised. The Hazleton School authorities said they will investigate the matter and will bring the full extent of the law to the little punks. 
The ironic thing about all of this is that their disgusting display was caught on video for the TV station to air as well as hopefully all of America. It is unkind at best to diminish one because they might not be as mentally developed as you are in your first grade big boy pants. 
But the video was shot by the victim they were calling names and making fun of. So my big question now is, which party is the dumb one? Not the victim that’s for sure! 
Two things need to happen: 
1. All those kids need to be banned from riding the bus for one year. Let the moms and dads and the grand pops and nanas cart their little asses to school every school day in 2013-2014. 
2. Empower school bus drivers to do this: when an incident happens, take the bus either to the police station or back to the school. Then have mom leave her job as she climbs the corporate ladder while her kid becomes a monster and get dad off the golf course or construction site and have them deal with their precious loin magic. 
You’ll see how fast this stuff stops. 


Politico has reported that 12 members of Congress say they will quit before the Affordable Health Care kicks in because “they can’t afford the co-pays of the government health care plan." That tells you enough about why they went you Washington, doesn’t it? 
These people are making in excess of $185,000 a year. They can’t afford an insurance employee copay like the rest of us? 
I pay $220.00 a month for my health care coverage on a salary that is considerably less than a member of Congress. These guys and their staff just need to go and join the real world. 


 ………… not ours. What happens to you when you are a Congressman getting the ax in a primary? You land a job with the Liquor Control Board in the state for $71,000 a year. Tim Holden got his job from Governor Corbett. Look for Corbett to carry Schuylkill County next year. 


The U.S. Military can save 80 million bucks if they just had uniform camouflage for all branches of the service. The 4 branches have separate designs and that is costing that wasteful 80 million. I know people having their salaries cut because of the sequester and they are in the military. 
This makes a bad case the next time the military wrings its hands over cuts. Start with common sense because unless I’m wrong, terrorists don’t give a shit about the design of your camouflage uniforms. The taxpayers who support the military without question are getting hosed in this case.

The season for preliminary sparring has begun for State wide offices i n 2014. Brad Koplinski got the nods of key Democrats in both Luzerne and Lackawanna County as he crosses the state for the office of Lieutenant Governor. 
In the Lu, Dan Hartman – Democratic State Committeeman, Keith Moss – Mayor, Dureya Borough and Rebecca Sammon – President, Pennsylvania Young Democrats and  Democratic State Committeewoman. 
In the Lac, Ed Karpovich – County Treasurer and Justin Taylor – Mayor, City of Carbondale gave their support. 
Yesterday, over 115 elected officials, Democratic County Chairs and State Committee people and Party leaders throughout Pennsylvania endorsed Harrisburg City Councilman Brad Koplinski’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor. Races for Ltn. Governor can be crap shoots but if a candidate gets his name out there and is persistent, you never know when he or she will be paired with a winning candidate. Catherine Baker Knoll was inflicted on Ed Rendell and the current Ltn. Governor, Jim Cawley won his primary race against Chet Beiler by 50,000 and a field of others. So if you are fast out of the never know.

U.S. Representative Lou Barletta, PA-11, announced that his campaign will host a national tele-town hall to discuss the problem of illegal immigration in the United States, its impact on American workers, and current proposals in the House and the Senate. “A proposal of amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants will not make our country safer, will not make Washington spend less, and will not help anyone find a job. In fact, it will make each of these issues worse,” said Barletta. He continued, “It is important that the American people have all the facts about granting amnesty to millions of people in this country illegally. They deserve to know what this will do to their employment prospects, national security, and government spending. I hope to add to this discussion by inviting everyone across the nation to this free tele-town hall.” Tele-Town Hall Date: Thursday, 20 June 2013 Time: 8:00 PM Eastern To Participate: 1-877-228-2184 and enter event ID 110601

The Soweto uprising in South Africa begins.......The National Basketball Association and the American Basketball Association agree on the ABA–NBA merger..........Hundreds of Western tourists are moved from Beirut and taken to safety in Syria by the U.S. military, following the murder of the U.S. ambassador. o General elections are held in Italy…….in Presidential politics, the scramble begins on each side to get enough votes to secure the Presidential nominations after the primary season. Democrat Jimmy Carter needed over 2200 votes while President Ford the GOP front runner needed about 1150. Carter’s lead was much larger than Ford and negotiations began fast and furiously……in Pennsylvania, both GOP United States Senators, Hugh Scott and Richard Schweiker say they will be at the GOP convention in Detroit front and center…….and Luzerne County, Democrats who had supported Henry Jackson start to become enthused about Jimmy Carter and 37 years ago the number 1 song in LuLac land and America was More, More, More, Part 1 by adult film star Andrea True and her Connection.

Dave, I agree 100% on this school bus incident. To make this an open and shut case the school districts should all require that all buses have a video camera on board. From this there would be no doubts on who these little culprits are who did this terrible act. Maybe it is time for what we all do not want. BIG BROTHER to step in.
I guess if parents cannot control there children than something else has too.

Dave, a few things, there were other than first graders on the bus, I think it was first through 6th. But from people I have spoken to, the video caught many smaller kids at the bus windows throwing stuff. Still first, second, third grader or higher, they should know better.
Second, public school transportation is so tied up in legal stuff, you dare not make a move to disturb the little princes and princesses riding the bus. That’s the reason why there are so many snowless snow days as well as frequent stops every block to pick people up.
Third, I saw you on TV last night talking about this issue. You look great, your were extremely forceful on this issue and gave a lot of us food for thought. (I’m not sure you better go to a Hazleton PTA meeting anytime soon though). It was great to see you Tarone back on the air again.
Aa always, great job.

Dave, in regards to your article on the military camo uniforms.
As we all know in many of the cases with the military it is all about generals and political figure heads taking care of their buddies who are big name contractors. They are also in some cases just looking ahead for their own benefit for a plush job when they retire from the military or the government for a nice job. As always at the taxpayers expense.
Why can't Congress control this as they try to do with many other areas of public monies.
It is down right criminal in some cases.

With regard to the Hazleton bussing incident, I must give Mr. Yonki an A+ and announce that he is class Valedictorian. Congratulations, young man!!! You ingrates could certainly learn a thing or two from him if you would stop shouting and start listening…….
The work of this classroom moves forward……..

With regard to these youngsters of the 1st Grade who perpetrated this atrocity upon the autistic boy…….they should all experience the lash of a good belt courtesy mom and or dad. You see, class, the reason for such outlandish behavior is the inept parenting of these future low lives. Remember, if you have a puppy and do not properly house train it, your floors will be full of doggie excrement for years to come. Children are no different……have I made my point????? Give me your answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, the parents of each of these losers should be slapped with a 500 dollar fine…the proceeds of which be given to a foundation on Autism. Remember, the more private donations to ANY cause of good merit, the less government tax money needed. I have often said that if each American would donate a small portion of his/her salary to the so called “needy”, we would not be having debates on taxes or the welfare state itself. This is a lesson we need to learn if we are to survive as a Republic.

Once again, congratulations Mr. Yonki!!!! If all of the students in this classroom were like you, my job would be a joy and not a burden. On the personal side, I am off once again to NYC this week for another meeting with my publisher regarding my upcoming book. All we need do now is settle on a title and a solid financial deal. I hope you all behave yourselves this weekend and stay clear of the bookies and the drug dealers. Again, if you must indulge, do NOT get behind the wheel…..the life you save may be my own……..

Classes will resume sometime next week………….

Just remember to dress properly……
Something to think about this morning……….
Class Dismissed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think the school bus incident is a terrific metaphor for life these days.

So many "bus loads" of "like minded" "moronic behavior" merely "driving by" society and shouting out "inane criticism" at whatever they see, hoping it passes for "opinion" or "intelligence".

Unfortunately we lack an Off/On (or even Mute) button.

These "morons in training" need to be seen and not heard.

The goofy professor makes a great point of this were 40 years ago. Take a belt to one of these little jerks today and off to jail you go.

After the Obama election, I thought or I should say hoped that the Professor was not a liar and would actually go away. It is a shame that he continues to pollute LuLac with his pure bullshit.

The jerko professor thinks that everyone should donate a portion of their paychecks to help the needy. Mr Professor apparently don't know that the working poor cannot afford to feed themselves much less others.

Does this phony actually think that we believe he has a book ready for print and it is taking months to come up with a title? Give us a break Mr. Nut Case and stay in NY...... the Bronx as a great zoo.

I love the Professor. He makes an effort to give his comments in a manner that humorous and intelligent. I loo forward to his tome.

I find it hysterical that Barletta who criticized Kanjorski for phone town meetings now has them all the time. Funny how that works out.

At 8:47 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I agree on the professor and I too loo forward to his tome. Whatever the hell that is.
Wake Up Lulacers, the guy/gal is a phoney and his book will come out just like he reneged on buying the guy who bet him dinner and he left when the President was reelected over his candidate. Prof, please get your dipstick checked.You are runnin on empty!

Hey, Professor, Kids are much different than puppies! I can see where you wouldn't know that, but its true. I think that about sums up your world view.

Smart move by Corbett. Tim Holden was enormously popular in Schuylkill County. He had a reputation for being a regular guy who worked hard for his constituents. Schuylkill folks were devastated when he lost.

He was a fellow who showed he could be flexible and not a lockstep party-line voter (he voted with his party 76% of the time). He voted with his Party to pass the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, the Jobs Act, and the repeal of "Don't ask, don't tell."

But he voted with Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, to audit the Federal Reserve, and to hold the Attorney General in contempt for withholding documents.

The record shows he does what he believes is right, whether one agrees with him or not.

Right Professor, unheard of first time authors command large advances everyday. Give it a break will ya. There is no professor and there is no book and we all know it! Take your meds and go to bed.
Pleasant dreams Hemingway.

You make 3:26's point.

Some of us may not always see eye to eye with the Professor but his ideas are well presented and his philosophy is consistent.

It always disturbs me that we wish ill or failure on those we disagree with and then criticize those who may do the same (Rush).

I believe the Professor lives according to his beliefs and, even if I disagree with some, that's good enough for me.

That said, I wish him luck in his future endeavors. So should you.

The Professor lives according to his beliefs! How do you know he lives at all. I think he is a fictional character of his own creation and you admire the way he lives. Geez!

At 4:54 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I think he is a fictional character of his own creation

So what do you KNOW? No matter what you "think" don't you even consider his ideas? Or are you only willing to consider your own reality as guidance or knowledge?

"man in a jar" comes to mind. Sad.
