The LuLac Edition #3304, September 22nd, 2016


Fox News Reports that Donald Trump is soliciting debate advice on line. This truly has become the American Idolization of the Republican party! I think he’ll run into trouble if he starts yelling “Lock her up, lock her up!!”
If this is his debate prep, man this is going to be something.


So the other night in one of the Carolinas, Donald Trump said that blacks in America are in the worst shape they’ve ever been. This Wharton School of Business grad never heard of slavery, Jim Crow laws, Voting tests, and the beatings many received in the South for wanting equal rights. If you don’t have a conception of American history, you have no idea how to lead except re actively.

This week news came that a good friend of ours, Veronica Steadlle Kisailus passed away. She was surrounded by her family. Veronica was our family Attorney and really represented us above and beyond.
She was greatly inspired by former President Abraham Lincoln as she obtained a juris doctorate degree from the former Bridgeport School of Law, Bridgeport, Conn.
Residing at Harveys Lake for many years, Veronica served as the solicitor for the zoning office. Veronica was a member of the Luzerne County Bar Association, Pennsylvania Bar Association, U.S. Supreme Court Bar and the Middle District Bar. She was a founding partner in the Kisailus & Kisailus Law Firm, Wilkes-Barre.
The last time I ran into her was when our mutual friend Tom Marsillio was going after one of the Judgeships in Luzerne County in 2009. She was bright, fun, engaging, reasonable and fair. All you’d ever want in a Lawyer, a person and a friend. She will be missed.


Here are some scenes from Congressman Matt Cartwright’s office opening in Scranton Monday night. The Congressman faces off against Matt Connolly in November.
Cartwright’s best asset, Attorney Marion Munley Cartwright introduced her husband at the event before a good and enthused crowd.

Congressman Lou Barletta has been named a “Guardian of Small Business” by theNational Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s largest association of small businesses, for the third consecutive Congress. Barletta was honored because of his voting record in support of policies that benefit small businesses and job creators. Barletta has won the award in each Congress of which he has been a member: the 112th, 113th, and 114th.
“Many elected officials claim that they are champions of small business, but our Guardian Award shows our members and other small business owners who is really fighting for them,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan. “Based on his voting record, Rep. Barletta is one of the most reliable advocates for small business in Washington.”
The Guardian of Small Business is NFIB’s most prestigious award. It is reserved for lawmakers who vote consistently with NFIB on the key issues identified by small business owners and is awarded by tracking and scoring the votes of every member of Congress. House members and Senators who vote with NFIB members at least 70 percent of the time are eligible for the Guardian Award. Barletta received a 100 percent voting record during the 114th Congress.
“As a former mayor of my hometown of Hazleton, and a former business owner myself, I know that small employers are the lifeblood of any community,” Barletta said. “Today, it is harder than ever for entrepreneurs to go into business for themselves, so we must do everything we can to clear obstacles so they can do what they do best: create jobs and stimulate the economy. I am proud to have been honored by NFIB for the third straight Congress.”

Our 1971 logo.

Princess Märtha Louise of Norway, only daughter of King Harald V of Norway, in Oslo; Chesney Hawkes, English singer and teen idol, in Slough….The main-belt asteroids 6214 Mikhailgrinev, 2217 Eltigen and 2280 Kunikov are discovered by scientists at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory……..Copenhagen Denmark. The Freetown "Christiania" was founded. In the morning 26 September 1971 activists occupy a number of buildings in the military area in Bådmandsgade, Christianshavn (Copenhagen). This is the first beginnings of Freetown Christiania. The barracks area has been abandoned by the Danish Navy for years and there have for a long time been disputes about what to do with the area. Residents in Christianshavn want access to the open green areas as playgrounds for their kids. Young activists from the alternative communities is lacking a place to exercise creativity and social experimentation. All they look at the closed military area, but both politicians and the military refuses that the area may be to the benefit of the population. In September 1971 the activists lose patience and begins occupation. From very start, they are meet by a violent police action to remove the activists. These actions failed completely because the area is too big and there are too many people……in Pennsylvania the Pittsburgh Pirates inch closer to getting into the Major League Baseball Playoffs….in Luzerne County Frank Jagodinski faces off in the General Election for Sheriff with incumbent Joseph Mock and 45 years ago the number one song in LuLacland and America was “Superstar” by The Carpenters.

In the grand scale of history, Trump is wrong, in the mirror of the last decade he may not be so far off.
I know you think the most disappointing aspect of Obama's presidency is healthcare, I think it is race relations in the country.

We have the first mixed race president of the United States, and he has totally ignored one half of his heritage, and he has let down the other.

If there was ever a president who could have really brought us together, it would have been him.

Now, with each tragedy the default blame is race, even when race may not be a factor, and the default reaction to perceived racial issues is riot, not conversation and definitely not action.

Obama is trying to muster the black vote for Hillary, not for Hillary, not for the future, not for the betterment of individuals or society - but to protect his legacy on healthcare.

It demonstrates a man who has become so fixated on him, he has forgotten about us; all of us.

Yonki! You did it again! Just because the rest of our ignorant country all of the sudden start every friggin sentence with SO, doesn't mean you have to take up the stupid torch and carry it also. Didn't those nuns ever teach English in those sainted schools you tout?

I won't be voting for Trump, but I am still not convinced to vote for Clinton.
I will not vote for Clinton to simply vote against Trump.
I have a strong distaste for Clinton, but I am hoping these debates provide a reason, or sadly, I will abstain in this presidential election

I never much used it but I do it as an homage to one of our posters, Pete or the Old Sarge who used to do it.
Hey at least I wasn't saying "back in the da".

Reasons to vote for Clinton. Supreme Court. Supreme Court. Supreme Court.

The supreme court argument doesn't do it for me. I am more concerned about leadership and the economy and not a bunch of bs social issues.
I think we have seen over the years, once a supreme court justice, the individuals think for themselves.

Yeah well when the Court takes us back to the 19th century then you'll care.

"Yeah well when the Court takes us back to the 19th century then you'll care. "

Come on David, really? No matter the makeup of the court, it has usually been more a reflection of the times than ideology.

1st social security bullshit scare & now this one? Is your choice so lacking that you really feel the need to wade into the Trump gutter?

I guess considering who we ended up with as nominees, it isn't surprising that you are starting to sound, more like Trump. It is a shame that both are so weak that fear is the tactic to which both sides are sinking.

Regarding the court, in general, most cases that make it that far have little impact on day-to-day living.

Roe v Wade was a huge plus, however, I only know one person who had need. For her, at the time, it was a relief to have this right, although today, because of it, she lives a life mired in deep depression. Regardless, it has very little impact on the majority of people's everyday life. Let's face stark reality over hyped-up angst; in the era of a republican president, republican house, republican senate, & a conservative court - Roe was never even close to being overturned. So, keep dread concerning the court in check.

A friend's daughter married her girlfriend, thank you SCOTUS, while it is a great right, for most it still has very little impact on day-to-day living. Even without the court, sociological evolution was leading in this direction. It may have taken a bit longer, but as old homophobes die off, & because thankfully, religion in America is dying, the majority of young people aren't that concerned as today’s bible banging nut-jobs.

Let us not forget, if not for SCOTUS & Larry Flynt, we would not be able to read about “A New Savior,” or, via the internet, masturbate to people fucking & sucking in the most intriguing fashions. While to some, it is perhaps enjoyable to watch Bella Donna take two cocks in her ass at the same time, Houston get gang-banged by 500 men, or Tiger Woods's mistress go A-T-M, it isn’t really a major impact on day-to-day living.

What is important is surviving each day. The president can directly influence the economy; not by policy but by projecting confidence. This can in turn effect how much money we earn, so we can put food on the table & heat our homes... that is what has influence to most everyday Americans.
Sadly, we have two candidates who are both perceived negatively by most citizens. That is why neither Clinton or Trump supporters do a great job in articulating what their candidates will do to make every day living a little better, because both are so pathetic, they inspire little trust or confidence.

How did we end up one who equals Nixon's intellect yet dwarf's his paranoia, & the other who belongs on the Fake Househusbands of New York?

How did we end up with one who looks like she has one foot in the grave & the other on a banana peel, & the other who's skin color rivals that of an orange peel?

We went from A Shinning City On a Hill, to A Bridge to the Next Century, to two candidates who aren't fit enough to climb a hill or walk across a bridge.

WTF happened??

How did we end up with such poor representation? I know the dems did as much as possible to fix their side, but why???? Yet, an even bigger conundrum, it almost seemed with the dunce brigade on the republican side, they were also trying to get Hillary elected.

We have two candidates so elderly & decrepit that perhaps we should resurrect Lawrence Welk to moderate the Geritol debates.

The VP picks are equally repulsive, one of which very well may end up as president within the next four years, we have a whacked out preacher on the right, & one so creepy he looks like "Jared, the agent" from Deadpool.

Where have all the real candidates gone?

Both sides, keep both your esoteric big picture & frightened small minded arguments in their proper place; because, if I am living in the streets, I really don't give a fuck about where Bill Clinton was, or is, parking his pecker, nor I am all that concerned about washing the White House in a rainbow colored light show.
