The LuLac Edition #3402, January 12th, 2017

I had a real busy day Wednesday but just got around to processing the silliness that was the Donald Trump press conference.
One thing that struck me though in between the screaming at CNN that they were fake and the bi polar stream of consciousness that came from this guy's "wherever".
But this caught my attention.
"The only people who care about releasing my taxes are you guys", referring to the press.
See taxes are the dues you pay to live in a free and protected society.
I care that this blowhard is hiding them.
What exactly is in there that he doesn't want us to see? Oh I know baby boy with the rattle is under an audit and I know he released a 250,000 page report on his big business empire.
BUT there are more people who are now preparing their taxes who just wonder why he think only the media cares?
We all should care to see what he is hiding.


During the election Tiffany’s daddy screamed about how the election was going to be “rigged”, how the media was “rigged”, how the Democratic system was “rigged” and how was he the victim was being “rigged”.
Do you think he was protesting too much?
Because as it turned out, the system was “rigged” but for the TBBB.

Draft Dodger Steve King
Iowa Representative Steve King was crowing today that he was glad to introduce a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act. King told NPR that people should not rely on any entity but private concerns to get their health care. He said that Americans should foot their own bills and that they should be self sufficient and independent.
This from a guy who gets his Cadillac health care from the American tax payer!
King is one of the GOP winners. This fake patriot had avoided the draft during Vietnam with "2S" deferments in 1967, 1968 and 1969. Nine days after receiving his third deferment, when he was clear in 1970 after hiding out in college, he quit.
This coward though King has continuously voted for Iraq War legislation, and has supported surge efforts and opposed a time table for troop withdrawals. During the 112th United States Congress King was one of 40 "staunch" members of the Republican Study Committee who frequently voted against Republican party leadership and vocally expressed displeasure with House bills.
He was the King of “No” and was voted the least effective member of Congress by InsideGov due to his persistent failures to get legislation out of committee. After Todd Akin made a controversial statement about "legitimate rape" on August 19, 2012, King came to his defense, characterizing the critical response as "petty personal attacks", and calling Akin a "strong Christian man".
Yep when they have to tell you they’re a Christian, they aren’t!
King gained prominence by being one of 11 in Congress to vote against the $52 billion Hurricane Katrina Aid package, claiming fiscal responsibility and the government needing a comprehensive plan for spending aid money.
So this is the quality of the man who wants Americans to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and get their own damn health care.This dangerous coward wants to get rid of it and not introduce anything new. With Coward King, you'll be on your own.

Attorney Staci Acri (Photo:Standard Speaker).
Local attorney Stacey Acri announced she will be seeking nomination to replace retiring Magisterial District Judge Ronald W. Swank for District 11-03-06 in the Mountain Top area.
Acri is a graduate of Crestwood High School, King’s College, and Penn State’s Dickinson Law School. She served in the United States Navy before returning to the Mountain Top community 10 years ago. Her husband is a high school physics teacher and navy reservist, and together they are raising three children who attend Crestwood Middle School and Rice Elementary School.
Acri hopes her military experience and legal background will help make a positive impact on the community, both from the bench and around the community. “This is a full-time job,” Acri said, “and when I am not hearing cases I intend to reach out to schools, businesses, and community groups to make sure the justice system is not a separate component of the community, but an integrated part of it.”
Acri is admitted to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania and the Middle District of Pennsylvania, and she is a member of the Wilkes-Barre Law and Library Association. Locally, Acri is an Auditor for Wright Township and volunteers as a religious education teacher at St. Jude’s Church.
Committed to her community, Acri currently serves as a professional mentor to the Domestic Violence Service Center, where she works closely with their attorneys to ensure victims receive proper representation in the court room. “It’s a humbling experience knowing what these victims have been through. No one should be abused in their own home, and everyone deserves to have their cases heard in court.”

Trump said, "I won, I won" in reaction to the taxes.
Jeez I guess he could kill us now if he wants.

Releasing tax forms is a courtey and not a necessity.

Politicians "arrange" their taxes to "appear" as they want them to look from the start of their career. It's a contrived life.

In other words, since it's not a law to release your taxes: I don't care since it tells us nothing. NOTHING.

I wonder what Bernie got for "ignoring" the rigged primaries.
Let's see how long it takes for the moral outrage of the Lizzy Warren Caucus to raise its head over the rigged primaries.
Pedestra's password was "password"? Inconceivably stupid!

So, are you saying those that don't live in free and protected societies don't pay taxes?
Income taxes are an abomination and have only been in existence for the 2nd half of the American Experiment.
Don't care about Trump's taxes, didn't care about Clinton's taxes.
Peoples' finances are their business and should be a private matter (I know they chose to run).
If he, or Clinton, or anyone else, could figure out a way to have the government steal less of his earnings, more power to him.

While the media, admittedly worked against Trump, rigged is as an inaccurate term as is saying the Russians "hacked" the election.

What was rigged, was the democratic primary. From what was done to Bernie Sanders, to keeping the Vice-President out of the race.

I just saw on the news VP Biden received presidential medal of freedom... how much he has to be kicking himself for going along with democratic primary charade.

To me, the VP will always be the biggest victim of the DNC's, with President Obamas help, collusion to get Sec. Clinton elected.

For his flaws, VP Biden is experienced, thoughtful, intellectual and most importantly, very much in touch with his humanity. If he had pursued his long political ambition and ran, he would be president today.
