The LuLac Edition #3843, July 26th, 2018

Next Thursday, August 2nd at Mohegan Sun Arena. Maybe we can send him a copy of his oath of office. We'll be watching the numbers and just how many of the local ingrates will show up. I bet you can make a ton of money by seeing how many of his supporters are still bitching about Hillary.


So the President screws the farmers on tariffs that will cause many of them to lose money and their farms. Realizing that these corn fed Americans who feed us and are the most important industry in this country might get hurt (because Trump knows who and how he is screwing people) he then turns to the government to give them aide. He is using a 1930s statute that was meant to help farmer’s in the Great Depression. Farm growth has increased over the last decade and a half but now that is on the decline because of Trump’s tariffs.
So Trump causes the problem and asks for a bailout for the crap he caused. It's like one of those (and these are only isolated cases here) volunteer firefighters setting a fire to his firehouse. Then he borrows equipment from the fire house the next town over, puts the original fire he started out and THEN takes credit for saving the day because if he hadn't started the fire in the first place, he wouldn't be able to save it from burning!
This is what happens when a know nothing loudmouth is given the reins of power.
But to be fair Trump does have agricultural experience.


Representative Lou Barletta has essentially endorsed the treasonous behavior of President Trump in Helsinki by his silence and lap dog defense of Trump. After that meeting Trump said that he believed Vladimir Putin didn’t interfere with American politics and by doing so, broke his oath of office. The Republican Constitutionalists who waved their pocket copies in our faces stand by as Trump sides with Putin and forgets that his oath says to “defend, protect and preserve" the Constitution of the United States.
Barletta’s comment went like this. “People have lost focus of the good that has come out of that meeting. The question is: ‘Is the world better off that they met or not?’” Barletta told The Philadelphia Inquirer while in Washington on Tuesday. “The Democrats want to try to find that one drop of blood in the water so that they can focus on Russia, their favorite subject.”
Blaming the Democrats? Lou baby, you have control over three branches of government.
What, tell me exactly what is the good that came out of that meeting? Trade? Any stances on human rights? Maybe stop poisoning people on the streets of London? Was there any agreement that helped “Make America Great Again?
One drop of blood in the water? This Russian investigation has been hemorrhaging because of proven indictments and rule of law where American citizens indicted people who were involved with Russia! IT IS CALLED A GRAND JURY!
Lou, did you not see Putin leap onto that stage while your boy stood there like a star struck teenager?
By the way, Barletta’s office hedged on whether the concerns against the President was a witch hunt.
Barletta said that he believed the intelligence officers and that he, Barletta would do everything to make sure that Russia will not do this again. How Lou, like your fellow Republican Jim Jordan who wants to do it through Voter ID?
Jeez and this guy wants to be a Senator! What will Lou say..or NOT say next week when his boy graces Luzerne County. (LuLac, Philadelphia Inquirer)


This past Sunday, Florida voters weighed in on Trump, Russian and the state of the country. I have no great love for the state of Florida. I truly believe that in my personal, eye to eye contact with them through the years, 85% of them are ignorant, entitled, racist and ungrateful people. Now this is my personal feeling and disagree or not, to me nothing has given me proof of anything otherwise.
This is the long version of Ed O’Keefe’s gathering with a few citizens of the Sunshine State.
 It’s long but keep an eye on this guy who when asked if he believed that Putin was innocent and if he believed the intelligence agencies were wrong and Trump was right, said unequivocally yes. Then he blamed Obama and the intelligence agencies. Priceless ignorance.

Candidate for Congress in the 8th, John Chrin. (Photo: LuLac archives)
The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Fed PAC has announced its endorsement of John Chrin (R-Skytop) to represent Pennsylvania’s 8th congressional district in the November election.
NFIB has identified John Chrin as a pro-small business candidate who is their preferred candidate on the the issues important to small business like affordable healthcare, reducing onerous regulations, and keeping taxes low on small businesses.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy in Northeast PA. I am proud to receive the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the voice of small business.” said Chrin.
“I understand the importance of keeping taxes low and cutting regulations so that small business owners across the country have the needed tools to continue positive growth and job creation. My opponent, Matthew Cartwright voted against the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and supports its repeal. Hardworking families all across Northeastern Pennsylvania are benefitting from these tax cuts and cannot afford Matthew Cartwright’s tax hikes. When I talk to local small businesses, they know the dire economic consequences of hiking taxes on employers. The bottom line is that Matthew Cartwright’s tax hikes are a first class ticket to recession. I am also for lowering the cost of healthcare while Cartwright supports unaffordable healthcare policies.” (Chrin campaign)


Congressman Matt Cartwright (Photo: LuLac archives)
U.S. Representative Matt Cartwright announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) awarded a Community Facilities Direct Grant and Loan to the Greater Pittston Ambulance Rescue Service Association. The award includes a loan of $66,000 and a grant of $50,000.
The funds will be used to purchase a 2018 Ford E 550 4x4 Horton 457 Ambulance. This will replace their old ambulance that was totaled during an accident. The Greater Pittston Ambulance Rescue Service Association is one of the only regional emergency medical providers in the area; in addition to Pittston City, services are provided to neighboring communities. This association also operates the only community-based paramedic service in northern Luzerne County, designated as Luzerne County Medic 29.
“Targeted federal funding programs like those managed through USDA Rural Development, go a long way toward helping our first responders in small communities,” said Rep. Cartwright a member of the House Appropriations Committee. “I support maintaining these programs so our small towns in Northeastern Pennsylvania do not get left out or left behind.”
USDA Rural Development offers a broad portfolio of programs to improve the lives of rural Americans. They provide loans, grants and loan guarantees for housing, health care, first responder services and equipment, and water, electric and communications infrastructure. They promote economic development through loans to businesses through banks, credit unions and community-managed lending pools. They provide technical assistance to help communities undertake community empowerment programs, and they help rural residents buy or rent safe, affordable housing as well as make health and safety repairs to their homes. (Cartwright office)

One of the biggest issues in the battle for the 8th Congressional District seat is going to be Health Care. Matt Cartwright has his challenger John Chrin coming after the Congressman for his vote against repealing the Obamacare medical device tax. Chrin said in a news release, This tax passes higher costs onto medical services which in turn are passed onto patients. Chrin cites the Tax Foundation saying that because of that tax there was a loss of 21,500 jobs between 2013 and 2015. The Tax Foundation is conservative business friendly”. “My opponent, Matthew Cartwright, is supportive of a single-payer, government-run healthcare system. He supports legislation that would establish a public option or ‘Medicare for All’, hurting the quality of care for seniors who are currently enrolled and have paid into the program all their lives.
If implemented, this healthcare model would bankrupt our country r=to the tune of 32 million dollars over the next ten years.”
Maybe Chrin should talk to actual patients and Doctors who think Medicare is the easiest and efficient system of health care. Maybe Chrin should see the health care costs inflicted by insurance companies on patients. Maybe Chrin should talk to the working poor who have had drug prices go from a zero co pay to $600 bucks a month in some cases.
Chrin is worrying about elderly people on Medicare when a single payer system is not even in place. What does he think about Paul Ryan’s and other Republicans plan to gut Medicare to pay for the tax cuts?
I met Mr. Chrin and like him. But this is typical Republican mantra, give tax breaks for the very rich and the debt be damned BUT when it comes to the cost of taking care of American’s health, then they worry about the cost and become deficit hawks. .
I can’t wait for the debates on this one.

Our 1960 logo

The Soviet Union launched a space capsule with two dogs, Pchelka and Mushka, in advance of manned space flight. Korabl 3 burned up upon re-entry into the atmosphere….

The lunch counter at the Woolworth's store in Greensboro, North Carolina, where the "Greensboro Four" had started the first sit-in in January, began service to African-American customers (actually, three store employees) at 2:30 p.m.. Integration of Greensboro's other restaurants did not happen until 1963….

Fifteen months after U.S. President Eisenhower had proposed that the Soviet Union and the United States be allowed to inspect their opponents' missile sites, the Soviets made a counteroffer "to allow international inspection teams to carry out three on-site inspections annually on its territory." The U.S. and its allies considered the number to be inadequate, but saw it as the basis for negotiations. Actual inspections would not take place until more than 25 years later........

The opening title sequence of The Andy Griffith Show, showing Andy Griffith and Ron Howard preparing to go fishing, was filmed in advance of the show's October 3 premiere. The Franklin Canyon Reservoir in Los Angeles served as Myers Lake (named for the show's production manager, Frank E. Myers) on the outskirts of Mayberry, North Carolina, for purposes of the show..

In Chicago, delegates to the Republican National Convention nominated U.S. Vice President Richard M. Nixon for President, with 1,321 votes. Ten delegates voted for Barry Goldwater. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. was nominated for Vice President…..Republican Senator Hugh Scott says he is thrilled with the Nixon-Lodge ticket for the fall of 1960 and is sure it will prevail…..Luzerne County Republicans say they believe the selection of Vice President Nixon will be a sure winner for the 1960 election and fifty eight years ago the number one song in LuLac land and America was “Only The Lonely” by Roy Orbison.

You've got a lot of damn nerve Yonki. You're just as bad as Hillary and her gang of thugs calling everyone who even considered a vote for Trump Deplorable. So now anyone who supported him or voted for him, we're all ingrates now. People still bitching about Hillary? How about all the Hillary supporters bitching on the opposite side of the fence. Not my president, and all of the other famous sayings from the sore loser Dems. Yeah, you hate him we get it. You are so engrossed in your hatred for him and the Republican party, you're blind to the fact that you are acting the exact same way as his followers you bitch about.
Maybe it's about time you grow up and stick to writing about political subjects, and try to keep yourself from spewing all of your hatred in your columns. Try being a little more professional. You don't have to stoop to the levels of Trump and his Trumpettes. I don't like him either for all of his antics, but come on you should be better than that. You're just acting like the ass that you are.

This is the political subject of our time!!! Not hatred just a clear reflection of what the brilliant voters have inflicted on us.
The Trumpettes? Wait until we get nailed by the Russian on the power grid!

Good post Yonki.
While I'm a Dem, I think your calling out ALL sides is just fine.
The issue with Trump supporters is they are running out of excuses.
Then as you state correctly, when they are called on it, they do the poor me thing!
