The LuLac Edition #4,122, August 8th, 2019


The guys whose rhetoric and insults inspired many hate crimes in the United States, Donald Trump says we’ll have background checks like we never had before. What crap. Old Diaper Don really was slinging it today. Trump endorsed an expansion of background checks for U.S. gun buyers following the massacres in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, but said there’s “no political appetite” to renew a ban on military-style rifles.
No political appetite???  It is ironic to me that this man and his impotent party say there is no appetite for it because they don’t want to take a stand against the problem. With all of them in the back pocket of the NRA, who could think they’d do otherwise.
While he said there’s not enough support in Congress to re-enact what was commonly known as the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004, he indicated he would discuss the idea with lawmakers. “I will certainly bring that up,” he said.
He’ll discuss it, offer a proposal and then change his mind the very next day.
Moscow Mitch, Trump’s reliable butt kisser has refused so far to allow a vote on House-passed legislation that would expand background checks and hasn’t indicated whether he’s reconsidering after the shootings, which killed at least 31 people.
“I think we can bring up background checks like we’ve never had before,” Trump said.
What horseshit!


So how about this. Big bully Trump meets with people in Dayton over the killings there but stays out of public view away from the news media and the public. This man is a first class loser coward.
Trump met with victims families and police but made no promises, and then got into a Twitter fight with the Mayor of Dayton and U/.S. Senator Sharrod Brown. Trump says they misrepresented his meeting.
Well I don’t think they did. Trump never told the truth to Brown, never giving him a straight answer about assault rifles and then like the little baby coward he is used his itty bitty fingers to tweet invective against the very people he lied to.No balls baby.


In deflecting what is really going on with his visit, old Diaper threw this at us blaming the shooter and saying he had nothing to do with Trump. He repeated his belief that the Dayton shooter was "a fan of Antifa, a fan of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Nothing to do with Trump, but nobody ever mentions that," he said.
His followers will lap it up and so the BIG LIE by the biggest liar of them all begins!

U.S. Representative Matt Cartwright  announced up to $16 million in available federal funding for local organizations to help veterans and socially-disadvantaged Pennsylvanians who are looking to own and operate ranches and farms.
“Farming is an important part of our regional economy that poses unique challenges, especially for minorities and veterans who operate these businesses,” said Rep. Cartwright, a member of the House Appropriations Committee. “This provision of the Farm Bill will encourage community-based organizations to work with historically-underserved farmers and ranchers, and to help them overcome barriers and find a pathway for success.”
The grant application period is now open and will close on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
Funding is made available through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)’s Outreach and Assistance for Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers and Veteran Farmers and Ranchers Program (also known as the 2501 Program). The program is administered by the USDA Office of Partnerships and Public Engagement (OPPE).

President Richard Nixon, a Republican, proposed a law providing a basic guaranteed minimum income to poor families, regardless of whether any member of the family was able to obtain employment. Work incentives were part of the proposal, including free day-care centers for children, a 25% bonus for people in job-training programs, and allowing people to earn additional money at work without jeopardizing their guaranteed income.[22] Nixon said that his program, which would replace the existing welfare payment system, "aims at ending the unfairness in a system that has become unfair to the welfare recipient, unfair to the working poor, and unfair to the taxpayer." Analysts noted that Nixon's proposal would more than double the number of people receiving government assistance to 22.4 million and would almost double the amount of money budgeted for welfare programs. The amount of guaranteed income— $1,600 per year or $133.33 per month — would be the equivalent of about $900 per month in 2018……. On orders of Charles Manson, members of the Manson Family invaded the Los Angeles home of film director Roman Polanski and his pregnant wife, actress Sharon Tate before midnight. The group then brutally murdered Tate and her unborn child, three of her guests, and a person who was had stopped by at an adjacent dwelling. Polanski was in Europe, but Tate, celebrity hair stylist Jay Sebring, heiress Abigail Folger and her boyfriend Wojciech "Voyteck" Frykowski were awake when the killers came in. The fifth victim, Steven Parent, had had the misfortune of driving away from 10050 Cielo Drive just as the group arrived with the mission of carrying out a random murder to shock the American public… The three Apollo 11 astronauts were allowed to leave the "mobile quarantine facility" where they and two scientists had lived for three weeks while being examined from possible contamination from the lunar soil that they had brought back from the Moon. In all, 23 people who had been the first to handle the "Moon rocks", had been isolated until NASA administrators verified that there was no biological threat from the material. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins then rejoined their families in Houston for the first time since June 25.

Los Angeles grocery store owner Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary, were murdered in their home less than 24 hours after the killing of five people at the home of Sharon Tate, on orders of Charles Manson, who had picked the LaBianca home at random.....Israel conducted its first air attack, ever, on Lebanon, as Israeli Air Force jets flew across the Israeli-Lebanese border of the Golan Heights at 1:30 in the afternoon and began a 30-minute raid on suspected guerrilla positions in the Jabal al-Shaykh mountain cluster. The area is referred to as Mount Hermon in the 1st Book of Chronicles in the Bible......The United States Senate voted unanimously, 91 to 0, to restrict further production, development and testing by the United States military of chemical weapons and biological weapons. The rules, passed as part of nine amendments to a $20 billion defense appropriations bill, required that in the future, the U.S. Department of Defense would report twice a year to Congress about projects, prohibited spending future money on delivery systems for stockpiles of lethal chemicals or germs, required advance notice by the Department of any plans for weapons use outside the U.S. (to both Congress and to the governments of the nations affected), halted outdoor testing of weapons, and required detoxification of lethal agents before they were to be transported for disposal….. in Pennsylvania Senators Schweiker and Scott, Republicans say the Nixon plan to replace welfare has merit I in the Lu and the Lac, sidewalk sales pop up readying shoppers for the back to school season and fifty years ago the number one song in LuLac land and America was “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond.
