The LuLac Edition #3021, September 3rd, 2015

Will Trump's behavior force Romney into race? (Photo: CNN)
The establishment of the Republican party continues its worries about Donald Trump. As a matter of fact Mitt Romney has been saying disdainful things about The Donald. The GOP feel that their race has been hijacked by the businessman and are frustrated that not one of their mainstream candidates have touched Trump up a bit.
Jeb Bush has been issuing salvos and has his back up but leaders are worried that the nomination won’t be worth anything to Bush and the party because of the damage inflicted. There is also great disappointment that the vaunted GOP bench has not performed. People like Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Rick Perry and Chris Christie who have been big in their own states have failed to capture the imagination of the GOP faithful. Walker and Christie’s performances have been particular disappointing because both GOPers have been elected and re-elected in blue states.
Recognizing that it is early, Republican leaders have not yet gone into full panic mode. But a few have reached out to Mitt Romney to get his take on things. Romney according to AOL News is appalled at the Trump campaign and his incivility toward the party candidates. Romney has not been invisible appearing on a promo for CBS’s new Late Night effort with Stephen Colbert. Despite his protestations earlier this year when he said he would never run for President again, Romney has never lost the bug. Plus there is a possibility that Bush might be too damaged to run as the establishment choice. Remember the 2004 Democratic race when Howard Dean stormed the party and was on the cover of national magazines in the summer of 2003. He was attacked by former House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt viciously rendering he and Dean powerless to overcome the two late surges in Iowa by Senators John Kerry and John Edwards.
Romney is ready. The GOP establishment is getting increasingly nervous. This is something to watch very closely.


The "Christian" clerk in Kentucky who is refusing to sign marriage licenses for gay couples needs to just go away. The elected clerk has imposed her own own personal preferences and beliefs in not supporting and enforcing the law. So there are some who say she needs to be fired and stripped of all of her benefits. As Lee Corso from ESPN would say, “Not so fast my friends”. 
This woman is an elected official and as our friend Wil Toole points out elected officials can do anything they want in terms of running their office. So there has be some other way to get this person out. She has lost two judicial rulings and now has said because she won't give licenses to anyone she is not discriminating. So in effect she is not doing her job. If she were in private business her ass would be gone. But Kim Davis says Jesus spoke to her. If that is true Jesus was having a bad day if he chose to communicate with this lunatic.
This is why I decline to call myself a Christian. I do not want to be associated with garbage like this collecting a public salary and not upholding the laws of this land. If the words of Jesus are so important to her then let her live the words of the bible. When Christ asked James and John to follow him  they left Zebedee in the boat with the servants and followed him. When Matthew was asked to follow Christ in the tax office he left everything and he rose and followed him".
Now not being a Christian but a Roman Catholic I can be a judgmental son of a gun here. This woman who will deny gay couples the right to marry spread her legs (Jesus must have been speaking to her then!!) for more than one baby daddy and has gotten divorced a few times. SHIT! No wonder she is against marriage but hey don’t blame it on the gays if they’d like to try to fail as miserably as she did.
Hey sister Christian, put your money where your mouth is!
Listen to the voices in your head and go follow what you think is Jesus. Out of all the Christians in the world why, Jesus would pick you to say anything to is just inexplicable.
In the meantime, the only guy I will ever believe who spoke to Jesus was John Prine! 


Steve Corbett got slammed by text Wednesday when he was told that God was involved in all of this. Uh no. See when God sent his only son to be the savior, Jesus as man complied with most of the laws. His parents were ordered by the Roman Empire to travel to the cities of their birth. Jesus himself said that one must render what is Caesar’s. So it isn’t about God, it is about the law of the land and the law that this person pledged to uphold. If she refuses to do it, throw her out and let her work at Wal Mart.


Keeeem Davis say Jesus spokes to haire so tis musts be rheihite. Dhat's alls I knows pertneer az I kuhn tells.
Iz agrees dhat she shudunt give licencez to gays or anyeebuddy!
EDITOR’S NOTE: In case you are not aware of this case, I’ve taken the liberty of translating the story for you in Kentucky.


Our friend Doctor Joe Leonardi has some big news about the latest project he is working on.
Doc Joe's latest e-book for the kindle and kindle app will be released on September 22, 2015.
It is available for pre-order now on
A thirty day snapshot of one person's life long struggle with carbohydrate addiction.
For some of us, the reason undoing addiction is so difficult, is because no matter how long we have lived, or how far we have traveled --- the broken twelve year old child remains ever present.

Saturday September 12 The Irregulars will host Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis as their guest speaker. Here’s the information.
The Presenter is one of the most important aspects of our breakfast. We take great pride in telling everyone that our Presenter will be Stephanie J. Salavantis who was elected Luzerne County District Attorney on November 4, 2011 and took office in January 2012 being the youngest elected District Attorney in the Commonwealth since 1872.
Born and raised in Luzerne County, Stefanie’s working class upbringing contributes heavily to her strong work ethic. A graduate of the Luzerne County public school system, Stefanie continued her education at Temple University and Thomas M. Cooley/Western Michigan University Law School.
Stefanie’s legal career began with opening her own private practice as a general practitioner and working in conjunction with a law firm in the Wilkes-Barre area as a litigator for one of the largest insurance companies. Simultaneously, she was appointed by the Luzerne County Judiciary to act as legal counsel and/or guardian ad litem in Children & Youth dependency and termination cases.
Upon taking office in January 2012, Stefanie quickly became involved in all aspects of the office, from the crime scene and criminal investigation to the courtroom. She expanded her efforts to protect the elderly and children against predators in the community as well as public corruption and white collar cases. She is also heavily involved with community organizations and works side-by-side with volunteers and various other professional organizations to help build a stronger community and remain in constant contact with the public.
We’ve been trying to keep the cost for breakfast the same and although we don't want to put a bad taste in Irregulars mouths we’ve had to raise breakfast price by $1.00 effective Saturday. Cost for the family-style breakfast is $13.00 payable at the door and that includes server tip.
The best way to make your reservation is to email and we’ll count you in. Since breakfast is open-seating the earlier you book your seat the better it is for us in determining the advance count. If you make a reservation please do your best to honor it. If your plans change please call our illustrious facilitator, Cholly, at 570-760-1213.

Righteous Brothers: Went to see the Righteous
brothers many times. When Bobby Hatfield finished
singing unchained melody the audience would give him a standing ovation. That's the song people wanted to hear. Unchained Melody had over 500 versions and was one of the most recorded songs of the 20th. century. In 1955 Al Hibbler recorded the
first verson. Phil Spectors wall of sound verson
with the Righteous Brothers set the standerd for this song. Of all the great singers singing this song, Bobby Hatfield does it the best!

Of course Trump worries Romney. Trump worries every establishment Republican that has betrayed their promises and supporters. Romney looks even more milquetoast next to Trump. Trump will kick rump. (saw it here first).

For a Roman Catholic, you know a little bit about the Bible. Too bad Trump didn't have a verse or two handy when he was asked that question. Where was Mike Huckabee when that happened?

What is truly depressing is the support this woman is getting from our community. Just listen to the people calling talk radio. A person on Tarone's show compared Davis to Rosa Parks! She also said that Christians like her, this is the caller now, said that she thinks the gays should get help.
Yonk, I'm Greek Orthodox and I'm with you. I used to say I was a Christian but I'm joining your way of describing religion.
So as a Greek Orthodox Catholic, I have a message for Angela from Wilkes Barre. Gays, the ones who choose to stay quiet, those who proclaim it and those who want to get married are God's children. They came that way.
Is it not against God's will to treat them as unchristian? You can't say you are a Christian if you are not tolerant.
Unless of course the next caller or newspaper commentator say they came from the devil.
Great job as always Yonk.
Tarone too. He has an unenviable time slot, he gets them all at the end of the day after they've either been beaten down by life or are just revving up to raise holy hell throughout the evening.

The Irregulars are a group of people that meet once a month. The group was spearheaded by WBRE TV's Cholly Hayes and Polka Broadcaster and former Educator Bobby Z. Every month the group has a featured speaker at The Lakeside Skillet. I have been invited to join, speak and attend. Due to my crazy life I have not been there yet. But it is a very good group.
