The LuLac Edition #3528, June 8th, 2017

26 year old victim Victoria Brong (Photo: Clay Lepard, WNEP TV Facebook)

26-year-old Victoria Brong of Factoryville, 47-year-old Brian Hayes of Springville, and 63-year-old Terry Sterling of South Montrose lost their lives early this morning when an armed man shot them to death in a Supermarket in bucolic Wyoming County. Their only crime that day:
Just yesterday, our friend Dr. Joe Leonardi wrote about gun violence. Leonardi wrote,” It is not the arsenal that is in the hand, it is that which is contained within the being. The base cause of violence and destruction is the mind of man.”
Perhaps it is time to set up better ways to figure out what troubled human beings are going through.
Perhaps it is time we made certain that this world is not even safe for overnight employees trying to eek out a living in an overnight job.
I don’t blame Weis. I blame the pathetic shooter who chronicled his heinous act on video. (We were given three links to the video but REFUSE to promote this loser in any way. ) By the way, in the video, the demon apologized for the way the piece was edited, saying he wanted to go out in a blaze of glory.
He should have taken a lesson from Japanese Samurai that fell on their own swords and took nothing with them. But this degraded, selfish individual bullied his co workers with “his piece”.
The great irony (much to my joy) is that this 24 year old monster died thinking he was a big man.
Not by a longshot!
He’ll be remembered as the little coward who killed…………..just because.
He will gain the anonymity he richly deserves through the years!
To the families of the deceased, our condolences go out to you in this time of pain.

Comey and the gang. (Photo: LA Times)
A few things about the Comey hearings. It was all about what he didn't say. Comey was asked at least 10 questions where he could not discuss openly in public session. His words like "problematic" when asking queries about Attorney General Sessions involvement as well as others in Russia.
The President's lawyers have said that Trump was right, he wasn't under investigation but dismissed the rest of what Comey said. Comey also reserved some pique for Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Comey said he was stunned when Trump asked him to take care of the investigations. There wasn't a big bombshell in PUBLIC but God knows what went on in PRIVATE.
This will take years to unravel. Notably, Trump did not tweet but you can be sure there will be that coming this weekend.
In the meantime, A few Republicans, appeared publicly pained as the investigation continues, fearing a continued drip-drip of revelations that already are distracting from the GOP majority's agenda in Congress. "The whole thing is unsettling," said Sen. John McCain. "That’s why we're in a full-fledged scandal, as I told you weeks ago. That’s why we need a select committee," said McCain, whose calls with Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, for a 9/11-style panel have been rejected by GOP leaders.
The "Constitutional Conservative Republicans will say the President was vindicated. By the testimony, maybe. But this thing is far from over.  My take away from this is simply that no one on that committee, Republican or Democratic said that  Comey was calling the President a liar. 
Comey also dared the President to release those tapes Trump tweeted about.  Much more to come on this.  (LuLac, L.A. Times)


News has come that at least four blue chip Law Firms in both Washington, D.C. and New York have declined the opportunity to work on any of the Trump administration or Trump personal legal problems. Historically,  past and even Presidents who were in office  legal woes were usually no brainers for prestigious firms. Plus it usually gave those firms a type of legal beagle bragging rights. But two reasons cited why the firms are reluctant are: 
1. They collectively and individually feel Trump wouldn't listen to their advice. They are using as proof his overriding of advice from his own staff. 
2. They are afraid that in the end, they will be stiffed on the bill citing all of the shady payment arrangements of his business career brought to light during the past campaign. 
Well, I guess we all reap what we sow.


How about former Secretary of State and Senator John Kerry's reaction on TV this past Sunday when asked if he believed the President could work his own climate deal with the other 197 nations involved. Kerry, clearly exasperated, not by the question but by the President said this:

Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement on the bipartisan Senate support and passage of Senate Bill 1, the pension reform compromise bill, which now heads to the House:
“I applaud the 40 bipartisan Senators who voted for this bill and thank Senators Scarnati, Corman and Browne for their leadership on reforming our pension system. I look forward to working with House leaders to get this bill across the finish line.
“This pension compromise achieves my foremost goals: continuing to pay down our debt, reducing Wall Street fees, shifting risk away from taxpayers, all while providing workers with a fair retirement benefit.
“Achieving this compromise will provide employees with the fair retirement that they deserve, while also providing long-term relief to school districts, ensuring more future state dollars go directly into the classroom.”

Yep, weekends are light in comments. Plus even with the page views from the last two days, the comments sometimes dip. Since I've been doing this for the last 11 years, I noticed that at least for me, an edition that I kill myself on will generate little. Then when I just do something on a flyer, it gets crazy.
There are days when you just never know.
