The LuLac Edition #3708, February 8th, 2018

State Representative Dush (Photo:
Pennsylvania Rep. Cris Dush has accused accused the five Democrats on the State Supreme Court of engaging in misbehavior for ordering the new maps and subverting the process, outlined in the constitution, by which a bill can become a law. Dush asked his fellow lawmakers to sponsor legislation to impeach the five Democratic justices and bar them from holding any office in Pennsylvania.
Dush, (I think it might be pronounced douche) is a  Republican calling for the impeachment of five Democrats on the state Supreme Court who ordered lawmakers to draw a new congressional map because the current one so severely benefits the GOP that it violates the Pennsylvania constitution.
A duly elected body that got their seats through a popular election is now one this winner wants to over turn. I think the main requirement for being a Republican State Legislator are these:
1. You must be a spoiled brat.
2. You must stamp your feet when things don’t go you way.
3. You must be desperate. (Source: LuLac, Yahoo News)


According to Democrats on the The U.S. agency responsible for disaster response hired a contractor that failed to deliver millions of emergency meals in hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico last year.
Democrats on the House Oversight Committee cited records that showed the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarded a nearly $156 million contract to a one-person company that delivered just 50,000 of the expected 30 million meals.
A one person company! How in the hell is a one person company going to handle a job like that?
The lawmakers said documents showed the company, Atlanta-based Tribute Contracting, had a history of problems handling smaller government contracts worth less than $100,000 and had been barred from government work until 2019.
So how did some company, barred working for the government get a contract? This is what happens when you put boobs in charge. Or sainted “successful” businessmen.
Representatives for Tribute and its owner, Tiffany Brown, did not respond to requests for comment.
Puerto Rico is struggling to recover from its worst natural disaster in 90 years and the largest government bankruptcy in U.S. history, with some $120 billion of combined bond and pension debt.
Hurricane Maria killed dozens and left Puerto Rico's 3.4 million U.S. citizens without power when it struck on Sept. 20, along with reducing access to clean water and other essentials. FEMA last month said it would continue to provide water, meals and other basic needs after earlier reports that it was going to halt aid. (Source: aolnews, LuLac)


I guess if you’re in the doghouse because your wife, or more precisely the carrier of your son has pretty much put a chasm between the two, you need to get your jollies off somewhere. The President now has decided he wants a big military parade showing off the might of the United States Armed Services. A few things on this.
!. Showcasing the military for tributes to Veterans is one thing. Showcasing all we have to the entire world is rich. Here’s how. This guy who attacked Barack Obama for showing our hands in Mideast wars started by Republicans by the way, now wants to do a full frontal to the world of everything we have in the military.
It is hysterical that he so wants to be known as the military President when his little itty bitty bone spurs kept him out of fighting.
The cost of transporting these 600 ton tanks, deploying resources for his ego trip and the damage it will cause to the parade route is another genuflection to this maniacal asshole’s fragile ego.
Another chapter in this sad Presidency.

John Kelly (Photo: CNN)
General Kelly, long touted as the moderating force for this administration now has shown where his head is located. And it ain’t above ground. Kelly is even starting to use the same language the President uses attributing a fact “to some people”. Who the hell these people are is anyone’s guess.
He stated that some DACA residents couldn’t get off their asses to enroll. Well, I think Kelly should realize that HIS government can’t be trusted. If you were a Dreamer, and you heard from this bloated fool, Trump, not Kelly, that you were a rapist, a gang member and a welfare cheat, why would you even trust THEM to do right by you? 
On the recent wife beating scandal involving Robert Porter at the White House, Kelly we are told, knew about the allegations. One has to wonder, given Kelly's non reaction, how he treated women in the military when he was in command. If he knew this, why did he acquiesce to this man's presence? 
General Kelly recently reminds me of Colonel Klink on “Hogan’s Heroes. “Anything you say sir” and hand me some of that Kool Aid.

 GOP candidate for Governor Scott Wagner (Photo: Wagner campaign)
The Scott Wagner campaign released some pretty tough comments on the new budget of Tom Wolf. But the words are not Wagner's but from some of the premier journalists in the state. Take a look at these quotes and thoughts. 
Yesterday, Governor Wolf gave one of the shortest budget addresses in modern history containing barely any details on his proposed initiatives and members of the media were quick to point out his politically motivated rhetoric. Below is some of what they are saying:
“The Philadelphia Inquirer’s John Baer: “So, as Wolf offered arguably the dullest and possibly shortest (19-minute) budget address in modern state history, I’m thinking the Guv was thinking differently than he was speaking…
“Then he rapid-read through a speech, absent any hint of measured oratory, lift, or inspiration. It essentially said, ‘I’m up for reelection, so are you, let’s not do what we usually do.’...
“Oh, what a difference an election year makes. For example, unlike in past budget addresses, gone were calls for broad-based (income or sales) tax hikes. And, miracle of miracles, past dire warnings of economic collapse without new taxes, and a past admonition (2016 speech) that lawmakers get their act together or ‘find another job’ also left the building…
“And substance? Very little. Mostly broad strokes. Wants more for education. A new program called PA Smart (because every new state program must be called PA-something) to ‘consolidate our workforce development efforts.’” (Inquirer, 2/7/18)
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Editorial Board: “Contained within his nearly $33 billion 2018 budget (about $990 million more than the current budget) are no sweeping initiatives, no income-tax boost to raise a political dust-up in an election year for Wolf, who's seeking his second term. What we have, instead, is ‘Tom Wolf's Greatest Hits.’” (TribLive, 2/6/18)
The Harrisburg Patriot’s John Micek: “In a workmanlike speech that was short on sweeping goals, peppered with boasts about his achievements, and shot through with jabs at the General Assembly, Wolf rolled out an election year budget that he no doubt hopes will help win him another four years in the top spot come November.” (PennLive, 2/6/18)
KYW’s Tony Romeo: “In a re-election year, Wolf’s budget address was largely devoted to his list of first term accomplishments. Otherwise, the governor spoke mostly in generalities about what he wants in his next budget.” (KYW, 2/6/18)
The Philadelphia Inquirer: “His speech — nearly 20 minutes long — was one of the shortest in recent memory and included nods to bipartisanship, a recognition that Wolf faces reelection and wants to avoid the broad tax-hike proposals that led to his prolonged battles with the Republican-controlled legislature in the last three years.” (Inquirer, 2/6/18)

A quiz for LuLac readers.
Besides the Trump stories, does anyone see anything "missing" from these editions this year.
Hint: think even numbered election year that doesn't involve Washington.

You decry the lack of civility and dignity in American politics, and you make fun of Dush's name. He can't change that. He was born with it. Grow up.

To quote our President, "many, many people have said" and "I've been told that some may or may not pronounce it that way". If there is a clarification to be had, I'll gladly take another look at it.

You're accusing me of being Trump-like? A total of 13 words is your opinion?
Jesus, even he does better articulating his message than you two.
Maybe you aspire to be him.
Thanks for the non specific fact less drive by though.
Keep reading and posting! It is quite amusing.

And yet, that handful of words provoked a very Trumpian response.
Being long winded does not demonstrate insight or nuance. Often times, belaboring a point with too many words demonstrates a lack of genuine understanding.
All that is required to make yourself understood is the ability to write one true sentence.
Besides, what is most telling is your thin skinned response(s). With those responses, you have made my point.

Nuanced? I'm waiting for you to yell "shut the blog down!" You have just dropped a short word bomb that is smug and quite frankly lacking in any facts.
My response is not thin skinned. But if you believe it to be, so be it.
The funny thing is when one writes about the shape this country is in, because of people who put this jerk attack the messenger.
Have had it for all I care but your demonstration of one pithy sentence does not make you right or for that matter knowledgeable.
Let me say this about "my tone" which offends you. Bullies need to be confronted. Sometimes on their own terms because they don't understand anything else/.
The previous President wanted to be inclusive, bi partisan and he got shit on. If Obama had done what he was supposed to do with the power he was given, by a majority, we'd have single payer health care, immigration reform, no DACA and no horrible excuse for a person as President. He was "nice", he was reasonable.
You can beat a thug or a party that supports that behavior by being nice.
The funny thing here is that just like Trump, YOU turn it all around on the people telling the truth.
If I hurt your feelings with sooooooooooo many words, how's this for brevity:
"You're wrong."

He told us that but acted differently behind the scenes and I think we got shit on.
Lois Learner for a start?
I see Trump and what I see is what I get. Not everything is what I want, but after the last guy I'm OK with that.

I hope you have the Ben Gay out for your arms because you stretched hard and long for that one!
Lois Lerner's actions regarding targeting of conservative groups who claimed they were non profit, well just so you know, no one found evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt, or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution.
If you enjoy a President lying to your face, go for it. By the way 91& in a weekend end poll said Trump wouldn't release that Dem memo because he knew it would hurt him.

Quoting a poll is a last resort of a desperate argument.
Trump smashed every poll to win the election.

You're DEFENDING using the IRS to subdue opposing points of view???

Not at all. I was using that incident as an illustration of how Trump defenders have to go back 5 years to one instance in the Obama administration where no charges were brought. One sin they cherry pick to cover up the multitude of wrong doing taking place since he raised his hand (Trump) on the Bible.
When I nuance, they get pissed.
When I don't nuance, I'm too wordy.

Well there's 3 million people who voted against him. The poll, which I was quoting was a snapshot of how horrible the American people look at one issue.
My arguments are nowhere near as desperate as the ones the Trump ass smoochers are spouting every day.
Ever hear Kelly Anne Conway and Sarah Sanders?

Hey guys: 1:02 AM here again.....

Everyone is burying the lead on a BIG THING. If you have been reader of this blog you'll see a great addition and a big omission.
Am I the only one seeing this?
