The LuLac Edition #3212, May 16th, 2016


A poster sent this to LuLac on Sunday. Here is the opinion:
In an unrelated subject . In the CV n Sat. May 14 there was an article about the County Council "LOOKING INTO" putting a registration fee on ALL county vehicles. WOW what a cash cow that they could milk forever and ever. Also the initial fee of $5.00 would be paid but who says that would be locked in at that rate.
So very sad or elected officials. They cannot budget the monies they have now and they want more to mismanage.
This cannot happen.
Well okay I’m going to be in the minority on this one my friend but I think it’s a good idea. But it has to be implemented the right way. Here’s why I think it’s a good idea.
1. The cost is small and will affect everyone who has a vehicle. That includes people with multiple vehicles and people not paying property taxes. There has to be skin in the game for everyone. Or if you prefer,  pain for everyone.
2. The monies collected should never go in the general fund. They should go into a specific account that pays down the debt.
3. If a business has multiple vehicles they can pay a combined fee. But it has to be fair. The vehicle of the business should not be the vehicle of the owner.
The County has done a good job in reducing the debt so far. But more needs to be done.
And if you could afford more than two cars, you can afford to pay per vehicle.
Plus it will help rid the county of front yard junkyards that aren’t good for anyone.

Trump and The Hooters girls. Hey what guy hasn't done that or wanted to do that. (Photo: Huffington Post)
Here is the New York Times story you all heard about Donald Trump and women. Bottom line he is a boorish character when it comes to women because he could. If he were a Junior Veep, he’d be canned.
There are Trump people who say that Bill Clinton was a predator. And that Hillary Clinton enabled Bill. How did she enable them? Pick out Monica’s blue dress? Trump like Clinton made their own decisions. Wrong ones.
Here's that story:


Now Donald Trump keeps saying he wants to build a wall across the Mexican border to stop the flow of illegal immigration. Never mind that the current President has thrown out nearly a million illegally. Now I realize I’m just a guy who grew up in the Junction section of Pittston who might not understand how this wall thing works. But I must ask the following about the wall.
Who will build the wall?
Will they be union members?
How long will it take to build this wall?
Specifically will it take as long as the remodeling of the Panama Canal did? (Over 13 years).
What will be the cost?
Where do we get the money?
Will Congress appropriate that money?
If private industry builds it, do you mean to say that there will be no government funding?
If private industry fails like the banks, will your administration bail them out?
Or will this be a self funded wall?
How much of a share of my paycheck and Mrs. FB’s check will pay for the wall?
Oh wait, Mexico is paying for the wall.
Another set of questions.
How will we make them pay?
By making them pay, how will this affect the building of engines for Ford 150s in Mexico? (All those truckers need engines, right? No way to get to a rally without a pick up!)
Do we invoice them?
Will they pay with their currency or ours?
Money order?
Will they pay in installments?
Do they take AMEX?
If they refuse to pay how do we enforce collection?
Do we hire the same joker from Scranton who was supposed to take care of the garbage fees?
Will there be uniform building and construction codes or will each state the wall is constructed in enforce their own set of regulations? Bulyah, States rights, henna?
If we go to war because Mexico won’t pay, will we self fund the war?
Or will Mexico pay for the war?
Finally you do know that illegal immigrants come in through Canada, and International Airports. Do we build a wall around them?
NOTE: See previous set of questions.
Just asking.

The more I see and think about what is going on politically I conclude that the American people today (most at least) are some of the most nasty and selfish SOB's that ever walked the Earth.
The talking heads all ask, "This is where we are with this political environment, Donald Trump as the designate nominee." And they pontificate how we got here. I'll fill them in....the VOTERS did it. Plain, and simple.
I am going to go out on a very thin limb and predict here and now that Donald J. Trump will be the next President of the US (apologies for stealing Prof. Cleaver's delivery prose).
Why would we choose him?
Because he speaks in generalities. He offers simple solutions ("You're going to be so successful you are going to be bored with success" etc. etc.) without details. He appeals to the worst in folks. Folks blinded so much by hatred that they forgot where this country was 8 years ago economically.
The folks would like a loudmouth, loose cannon in charge as opposed to the current President who expresses both tact and eloquence and a strategic patience for the ultimate results of his efforts.
AMerica, You want Mr. Trump, you got him.
And when the wall doesn't go up, or when the economy tumbles or more troops are deployed I am sure, I am so sure these very folks who put Mr. T In the White House will find a way to blame it on Obama or Hillary or Bill.
Good Luck America.

"2. The monies collected should never go in the general fund. They should go into a specific account that pays down the debt. "

Did you take even 5 seconds to do any research? The money can only be used for bridge/road expenses. With that said, I am okay with paying it.

I am more concerned that Hilary enabled George W. Bush with her votes in the Senate and her actions as Sec of State later.
She gave approval and helped continue the misguided actions in Iraq and for that, the loss of life associated with it, I can not bring myself to vote for her.
I voted for Bernie and if he does not win, I will vote for Trump.
People may fear Trump for his bluster, but I fear Hilary for the lives her votes and actions have actually caused to end.

You love to bring up Clinton's affairs, but you seem to omit the sexual assaults that Hilary tried to stop from seeing the light of day.
Hilary attempted, and often succeeded, in destroying the victims of Bill Clinton's sexual assaults. She was ruthless in he mission to victimize the victims. If you can't see that, then there is no point in a conversation. Like a spin doctor you evade with what was consensual, and simply ignore the many that were not.
Imagine if your daughter had been Kathleen Wiley, or Paula Jones, or Juanita Broaddrick, thinking she was meeting an important man only to have him assault her. And then, when she seeks help, a woman tries to destroy her.
I know, it doesn't matter, sexual assault is okay if a democrat is the perpetrator.

“Today I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault. Don't let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed, and we’re with you.”

Who said the above?

"...forgot where this country was 8 years ago economically." Everyone I know was in much better shape and they remember EVERY SINGLE DAY. They don't hate but they are determined and are lining up behind Trump.
It's becoming more apparent that a majority of Americans are dissatisfied with current conditions and policies.

- and why would that be any different from Obama or Hillary or Bill?

I think both those posters figure your comments are so self-centered and narrow because their experience is so polar opposite of yours. I know, I do. ( by the way I think they were pointing out the hypocracy of both statements. That things have gotten worse in the past 8 years and that both sides equally blame the previous admin. No blessing required)
It must be hell living through the lens of negativity absent the desire or creativity to posit a solution or see another viewpoint. Of course this blog attracts a percentage of those which is why I occasionally visit. Finding some rational view points.
