The LuLac Edition #2718, August 25th, 2014


The Luzerne County Republicans had an end of summer get together at Urbanski’s Farms near Nuangola this past Sunday. Chairman Bill Urbanski and his family hosted the event. It was attended by key GOP committee people and a few candidates.
Revenue Secretary Dan Meuser represented Governor Corbett. The Secretary proclaimed that Tom Corbett was a good Governor who actually reduced taxes. Meuser pointed out that Corbett is doing exactly what he said he would do in 2010.
Interestingly enough, Meuser laid the blame for all the tax increases in the Rendell administration not at the Governor himself but at then Revenue Secretary Tom Wolf. Personally I’m not sure that argument will get traction with Wolf supporters. But as current Revenue Secretary, Meuser speaks from his position of authority in the Corbett administration. At the very best, he might persuade some people still on the fence. At the worst, and it may be a best for him, Meuser is an attractive, articulate well spoken representative of the GOP and can be a future star of the future for the GOP on a statewide basis.
Senator Lisa Baker offered some remarks urging the committee people to get an early start on organization.
120th District Representative Aaron Kaufer sent his regrets and 17th District Congressional candidate Dr. David Moylan stopped by the event and greeted the attendees. Moylan arrived late but the hearty GOP contingent sat around until he arrived.
Bill Urbanski in his low key but effective style shepherded the event flawlessly. I got a ride up from my buddy Jimmy O’Meara and on the drive up we compared medications and on the drive back politics in  LuLac land. Jim by the way manned the grill and everything was delicious. O'Meara is currently coordinating  a Third District event for  October 24th at the Dupont VFW on Main Street. More on that in future editions of LuLac. 
These events are very important for a party to organize itself for a tough general election. If I were certain members of the GOP not attending, I’d start to make tracks to the farm whenever there is event. I learned from the late Joe Tirpak, the wily Democratic party warhorse who once told me, “You make a lot of friends over an ear of corn and a hot dog at a summertime picnic table”.
Thanks to Chairman Urbanski for the invite.

Third District Executive Committee member Par Marranca sits and speaks with Dr. Carl Urbanski. It was great to see and chat with both. Pat and I relived old Pittston days and Dr. Urbanski and I recounted his old days at the Wilkes Barre Chamber.
I had a chance to speak with Arena Authority Board member Alex Milanes. Alex is a regular attendee at these events.

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

Here is a our separation agreement:

--Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

--We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.
--You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.
--Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.

--We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and the coal mines, and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.
--You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.
--We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.
--You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.
--We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks.
--We'll keep Bill O ' Reilly, and Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .
--You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
--You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.
--We'll keep our Judeo- Chris tian values.
--You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.
--We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.
--You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.
--We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The National Anthem."
--I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine", "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing", "Kum Ba Ya" or "We Are the World".
--We'll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.
--Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.

Would you agree to this?

In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you might think about which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

P.S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin & Charlie Sheen, Barbara Streisand, ( Hanoi ) Jane Fonda with you.

P.S.S. And you won't have to press 1 for English when you call our country.

Well ya ****ing moron, perhaps you better press some number because proper English is PPS. POST, POSTSCRIPT, NOT POSTSCRIPT SCRIPT.
It is always so amazing how you English only ****wads don't even know English. Learn the language yourself before you start demanding it of others. You're just like that ***hole from Pittston who would have started this closing sentence with your.

What's a "Ya" anyway? Whatever it is, the Rolling Stones said we're supposed to get them out. I think that's going to get someone an open lewdness arrest...

You must agree wholeheartedly with 7:49's ideas since the only criticism you can muster is over an abbreviation.

While his error jumped up at me I felt everything before it established his literacy and that it was most likely a typo.
