The LuLac Edition #3169, March 17th, 2016


I want you all to read this and tell me who you think this is. This person displays the following characteristics.
Feeling overly good, hyper, or "high".
Feeling extremely irritable.
Feeling very self-confident, an unrealistic, sense of entitlement, inflated self-esteem.
Getting little sleep and not feeling tired — feeling rested after only 3 hours of sleep.
Talking a lot, feeling pressured to keep talking.
Having racing thoughts, flight of ideas.
High energy and taking on lots of tasks.
Easily distracted, especially towards unimportant things.
Well, if you had said Donald Trump, there is so much evidence to support your conclusions. Talking a lot, bragging about high energy, still sending letters to a magazine editor that made fun of his hands twenty years ago, inflated self esteem, and very, very self confident.
These are also the symptoms of bi polar disease too. There are many who suffer from this disease and they have our support and sympathy. 
But is America ready for somebody like this, with these attributes, let alone symptoms to be President?


So if the Democrats want to get the Senate back, all they need to do is point to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel’s abject refusal to even bring President Obama’s nominee to a vote. The President is doing his job. The Senate, like they have done since getting a majority has done nothing. The fact that Obama picked a jurist already confirmed by the same GOP Senate at a lower level cannot be lost on thinking Americans. The guy is a centrist and is being blocked by Republican partisan politics. The nerve of Senate Republicans to shirk their duties is enough fodder for people to vote against every incumbent GOP Senator up for re-election. Our own Pat Toomey should be turned out. Pennsylvanians should vote him out so that gutless Mitch McConnell will be relegated to a minority status he so richly deserves.
The Senate Democratic committee should run this interview with another GOP reactionary Senator Jim Inhofe.


Mitch McConnell has been telling people about the “Biden rule”. He quotes then Senator Joe Biden who said decades ago that the Senate should not have any hearings on a Supreme Court nominee in a Presidential election year. It is very true, Biden was being political. But what the lying bastard McConnell fails to reveal is that after Biden, the Minority Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee spoke, he was chastised by the Chairman, Republican Strom Thurmond who said it was the President’s obligation and prerogative to put a nominee forth. McConnell who used the term “The Biden rule” 6 times neglected to reveal that little tidbit.


Pennsylvania Senate candidate Joe Sestak has an ad up across the state of Pennsylvania. If you want to know what “I got your 6 means”, check out the ad.


U.S. Representative Matt Cartwright called on Michigan Governor Rick Snyder to resign during the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform’s hearing concerning the water crisis in Flint, MI. The Full Committee hearing titled, “Examining Federal Administration of the Safe Drinking Water Act in Flint, Michigan – Part III”, included Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, and EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy.

Eddie Kendricks was the soloist and Paul Williams had a stand out part. This was one of the best songs from the Temps and marked their new partnership with Norman Whitfield.

It is so good to see you Lib/Dems so scared of Trump.

About time YOU feel the fear regular folks feel when you come into our lives for no reason other than control.

About time the world takes a huge defecation when they see/hear Trump. Cry "death to America" into our TV while you burn our flag? It's good to see your @$$ tighten when Trump gets wound up. About time you feel the fear.

Try to make him out as a mental defective? It doesn't matter because it's such a stretch. Besides, coming from the side that MAKES UP diseases like "affluenza" to excuse bad behavior we figure you're making this stuff up too.

Yonki, STOP now before you are diagnosed with cerebral pretzelitis - no code, not covered by ObamaCare.

Jeez Yonk, what was supporting your tie so manly-like?
You're our hero!

My gut tells me much of the contempt for Trump reflects contempt for his working-class white support. It is one prejudice gentry liberals and gentry conservatives share.

It is also perhaps the last acceptable bigotry, and you can see it expressed on any primetime TV program. The insults don’t all seem good-natured to me. I grew up surrounded by the kind of people supporting Trump, you did too Yonk, and I sympathize with their worsening plight.

For generations, they went all in for the American dream. Their families fought the wars, worked in the factories, taught school, coached Little League and built a middle-class culture. Now they are abandoned and know it.

Nobody speaks for them. The left speaks for the unions, the poor and the nonwhite, even shedding tears for illegal immigrants and rioters and looters. The GOP speaks for the Chamber of Commerce, big business and Wall Street.

Instead of working to fix a broken status quo, many on the left and right echo each other’s venomous attacks against him. One day he is Mussolini, the next he’s Hitler, and he’s routinely accused of hate speech and racism.

What is his great sin? Breaking the taboo about what ails the middle class? Daring to challenge a power system that only pretends to have the consent of the governed?

The shame is that others didn’t beat him to it.

I would be delighted to support a more conventional candidate who has Trump’s courage and appeal, but we don’t always get to pick our revolutionaries. And make no mistake, Donald Trump is leading a political revolution that is long overdue.

That tie, p[pardon the pun is a ballbuster to tie. I must have tried to get that length right 8 times and couldn't. Then I didn't have the presence of mind to tuck it. I looked Like Tom Harkin in 1992.

Tie length or not, your insight is to the point and fair. Dave and Valerie are also really good in their roles.

I'm re-reading your post and just don't understand the last part.
Mitt Romney is against Trump, he achieved nothing?
Jeb Bush is against Trump, he achieved nothing?
Maybe you might have been aiming at our blogger but it took me a week to figure it out. Maybe not.
See there a thousands of people who have achieved little and are supporting Trump. He is their hero.
But just because he is not my hero does not make me a failure.
