The LuLac Edition #3180, March 31st, 2016


You should see the emails I got from Democratic groups going after Donald Trump for his answer on abortion with Chris Matthews. Look at this:
Donald Trump said that abortion should be illegal -- and if a woman gets one, “there has to be some form of punishment.”
He also made sure to point out that the only way abortion will be outlawed in America is if we elect a president like him who’ll appoint anti-choice judges.
This will be a fundraising opportunity for interest groups. But the key thing here is that this is the first time in the campaign that Trump’s camp tried to clarify his stance. No apology. No shoving back. For the first time, Trump’s team needs to act like he is a politician.


Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. (HSN.COM)
So the other night, Holy Saturday as a matter of fact when I was sitting in church, I started to think about the Presidential race. We get there early so my mind started to wander. Currently there are people saying that only Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden coming out of the shadows (if Clinton stumbles) can only beat Donald Trump. But here’s the thing about Sanders. He is like the Energizer Bunny and just keeps going. If he were to be the Democratic nominee and face Trump, this Democratic Socialist might become President.
Trump’s stance on women, his erratic answers on Foreign policy, his cozy relationship with bankers will give Sanders all of his talking points on a silver platter. No wonder the GOP wants to derail him. If Sanders can gather a coalition of everyone Trump opposes, women, Hispanics, youth and people screwed by Wall Street, he may carry 34 states. 34 states you say?
That’s the rub. Sanders’ likeability factor is better than Trump’s and even Clinton’s. Americans will vote for someone they like. Look at Bush Vs. Gore. The last President elected who was not “liked” was Richard Nixon.
Trump’s negatives are good news for Bernie!

 George McGovern accepting the nomination at 3AM. (
Everybody is making a big fuss over Super delegates at the Democratic convention. Here’s why we have them:
1. The Democratic Party, like its counterpart makes the rules. Call it undemocratic, whatever, but they make the rules.
2. When the Democratic convention in 1968 went awry, the party went under a huge reform transformation. That begat George McGovern, an unorganized convention where McG gave his acceptance speech at 3AM. That begat a nominee for Vice President not properly vetted. That begat a 49 state loss.
3. That’s when the party pulled back some of the rules and started to assemble party elders that might keep the party from gong off the rails.
You might think that the established power brokers and their candidates get the brass ring all the time. But that’s not true. In 2008 Barack Obama got the Super Delegates like Bill Richardson and Illinois Senator Dick Durbin. Others followed suit and Hillary Clinton was not the nominee.
For better or worse, that’s how the Super delegates came to be.


You think this Presidential year is crazy, you should have been around for 1968. On a Sunday night, Lyndon Johnson under siege by Democratic opponents Gene McCarthy and Robert Kennedy as well as the Vietnam War addressed the nation on the war. Toward the end of the speech, Johnson pulled a surprise that would change the race and even the future of the Democratic Party, the course of the war and the nation. Johnson made this announcement:

There are many who feel that even though he was under attack, Johnson could have been re-elected. Johnson who pretty much stayed on the sidelines got screwed in the end by Richard Nixon’s team when his peace negotiations were pulled asunder when emissaries of Nixon convinced the Vietcong that they might get a better deal under Nixon.
Johnson is vilified for his role in Vietnam but he was trying to get out. Had he done so, history as well as the families of the many soldiers killed after Nixon took office would have been different.


Attorney General candidate Joe Peters came out against two Democratic candidates who got into a tiff about police.
"As a former cop and police chief I will not tolerate denigrating our men and women in blue to gain support of liberal communities, which some of my Democratic challengers seem intent on doing for political gain.
No one likes a bad cop - me first. But for political purposes painting a picture which implies that all cops are bad and need to be prosecuted rather than starting from the opposite premise is wrong. 
Peters campaign is on the move acroos the entire state.

The United Kingdom lifts all restrictions on gold ownership…..Ceylon, a group calling themselves the People’s Liberation Front begins a rebellion against the Bandaranaike government…….Chile and East Germany establish diplomatic relations…..Mount Etna erupts in Sicily……In Pennsylvania, an investigation into a break in of a two-man Media, Pennsylvania office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation was underway. More than 1000 classified documents were stolen and then mailed anonymously to several US newspapers. Some news outlets refused to publish the information, as it related to ongoing operations and they contended disclosure might have threatened the lives of agents or informants… Scranton City Councilman James Doherty spars with officials of the Peters administration over the administration’s track record of the first 14 months in office and forty five years ago the number one song in LuLac land and America was “Another Day” by Paul McCartney.

Nice little explanation about super delegates, but it can be summed up in on sentence.
Democrats think voters are too stupid to pick best candidate.
When people say "my vote doesn't matter," in the democratic primary that is the exact truth.

As far as Trump, he just found kryptonite. Thankfully.

So IF an action is against the law, Trump wants to have consequences. Ummm yeah? He didn't say there would be punishment if abortion remained legal.
But, it doesn't matter, our current president does not enforce federal drug laws, so once in office maybe Trump will change his mind and adopt the Obama way; only enforce laws I agree with.

Sanders or bust.
If Sanders is not the nominee, regardless of the republican, that is who I will be voting for. I won't be dictated to by the party bosses, super delegates, or Clinton sycophants.
I am willing to take another 4 more bad years, we have already had 15, to make people finally wake up and take control away from Wall Street and give it to Main Street.
We need a National Socialist who is in favor of the worker!

So you still think an abortion is a health care decision? Really? From the get go? 35 weeks? You have never considered the fetus at all? How much money have we wasted on the so-called Birth Control programs? My life has been enriched by people who found out they were "mistakes" and I cringe at the fact that they could have been aborted by weaker moms.
Politically could it be that your party have aborted their future voters and now must rely on fast tracked illegals to maintain their power? Perhaps white privilege starts at conception - avoiding the suction of convenience and cowardice on a sterile stainless steel table.
Trump had just welcomed his grandchild into this world and perhaps he was feeling the true joy of the moment and then empathy for those in danger of not making it to full term. I believe he was speaking off the cuff and from the heart. Finally someone who doesn't drape their feelings in poli-speak. I will vote for the candidate I UNDERSTAND: Trump 2016.

I bet you that's not the only thing Mount Etna, that erupted in Sicily that year. Those Italian women Yonk. They'd straighten Trump out.

The more I read the hopelessness and despair in your blog, the more I am leaning toward simply saying goodbye.
There is no reason to continue forward.
There seems to be nothing positive, nothing good going on.
Thank you for helping me in making the decision.

Wow, I didn't realize I can single handedly bring down a nation, state or a region.
I'm not in despair. If you want some positive things, may I suggest my 590 Forever blog or perhaps one of my books available online.
