Great Bible Quotes
"The Bible tells us the First Commandment
is 'Go forth and multiply.' "
-- Laura the Unloved, self-proclaimed Bible Scholar
I don't know that much about the Bible, but I remember as a kid,
the nuns taught us that the First Commandment was,
"I, alone, am God. You will worship me and no other gods.
Failure to comply will result in an eternity of torture."
She makes stuff up.
The Fringe of the Fringe
What if you're a gay, Nazi white-supremist?
Subject: Religion and the agenda
As stated by you, the agenda is to have fun, and perhaps help the Democratic party.
Invective directed against religions, especially
uninformed and in the crassest possible
terms annoys (at the least) your readers. This does not help the agenda and is not
necessary for pursuing the agenda.
Specifically, invective directed against, say,
the Southern Baptists, may piss off people
who aren't going to like your page anyway. But when directed towards minority religions,
you are pissing off people who like the agenda.
Common decency is not offended when you make fun
of some religion or religion in general.
Invenctive of the kind in your Jan 1, 2001 issue is below that standard. We must learn from
the Republicans, focus, focus, focus. Now why would you want to screw all that up for nothing?
They say "Never discuss politics or religion because somebody will get upset."
As bartcop.com grows, anything I say will piss off somebody.
Webster defines "opinion" as an appraisal formed in the mind about a
I have opinions about organized religion. I have appraised religion as having no value.
Are you saying I shouldn't have that opinion?
Or I should keep that a secret?
I'm not asking anybody to give up their beliefs.
If people choose to reject science and logic, I won't understand,
but I'll respect that person's right to believe in whatever he/she wants.
If Philip Hamer's friend had died, and I wrote a snotty letter to him
saying his friend
was NOT going to Heaven, but was "rotting in the ground," I'd be the asshole, not him.
One other thing, and this makes a difference:
I don't attack individuals about religion unless they're being a hypocrite.
I was responding to a poorly-timed attack by a small person.
You say my "invective" was "uninformed" and "crass."
Seems like I'm not the only one with an opinion.
The BartCop Doctrine has always been "You're free to believe in any
wacky system you like,
(easy on the rattlesnakes, tho) as long as you keep it away from schools and courthouses."
That is more religious freedom than you'd get from the other guys.
...and I'm not looking "to screw all that up for nothing," but I'm not going to stop having opinions
and I'll damn sure not let some piss-ant like Philip Hamer attack without a response.
Great Smirk Quotes
"I'm not afraid to surround myself with smart people."
What other choice does he have?
When was the last time Smirk was the smartest guy in a room?
Subject: Bartcop wanted by San
Jose police :)
San Jose Mercury News
An adviser to Smirk woke up Saturday to find his
wife's car scratched with obscenities,
the words ``Nazi'' and ``fascist,'' and expletives directed at gays and the president-elect.
It is an act Palo Alto police are calling a hate crime.
Four cars parked in the 300 block of Kingsley
Avenue were vandalized late Friday or
early Saturday in the posh neighborhood near downtown.
The property of Bill Evers, a conservative education
policy expert at Stanford University's
Hoover Institution who advised Bush throughout his campaign, is believed to have been the
intended target, police said. But three of his neighbors' cars also were damaged.
His wife's black 1995 Mercedes convertible is
covered now, but under that cover, the vehicle
is plastered with profanities. Expletives against Bush are scratched into the car seven times,
and its cloth roof is slashed and marked with ``Jesus Christ died in vain'' written in white ink.
All four tires are flattened and the side mirror is broken.
Nader people wake up too late
Nader now concedes that Bush will cause more damage than Gore.
Thanks a lot, Ralph.
Was there a check in Smirk's Christmas card?
Did you see the Tina Sinatra
interview with Larry King?
You religious defenders - get your seat belts on...
I don't know about the timing, but Tina said there were gasps
in New York
when they saw Frank taking Holy Communion during mass - because the whole
world knew Frank was divorced and screwing Ava Gardner, which is a continuous
and on-going mortal sin, thus being ineligible to receive Communion.
Turns out, it was all on the up-and-up because Frank slipped the
Cardinal a big check
and the Cardinal waved his hand and made the original marriage between Frank and
his kid's mother "annulled." It's an old trick the Kennedys use when they dump their wives.
This is such an abuse of power - can you impeach a Cardinal?
"In the eyes of God, there was no marriage," is what Frank put
on the check.
Funny, I've seen Nancy Sinatra - why can't God?
How do religious people sit by and watch church doctrine go up
"Excuse me, Cardinal, here's a list of sins I'd like to commit and still remain a good Catholic.
Can you shoot me a price on each, and can I get a discount for quantity?"
If you're going to live your life as a Catholic, you should at
least be able to explain why it's OK
for the rich to write the Church a check to pretend that a 20-year marriage never existed.
That's fraud, backed by the Catholic Church, because they like money.
Subject: Some Democrats aren't pussies!
My idea for the election protest is coming together. If you remember I'll be
a Supreme Court Clown Justice (judicial robe with clown makeup) carrying a
sign reading "Supreme Clowns Stole this Election" with a tagline advertising your site.
I think it would be great if we could get up to
eight other "justices" to join me.
Please let the people who read your site know that I would be welcome to have them
come and join in for a bit of fun at W's expense. The cost of the costume is $39
and I have the transportation and logistics in DC all worked out.
Take lots of pictures!!!
Subject: Fox News Facts
Fox News Sunday tried to make the Clinton economic
record look bad on
Sunday, December 31 by flashing Fox News Data at the bottom of the screen
while interviewing Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers. As the secretary
talked about the good things that happened during the Clinton
administrations, Fox facts showed that the Dow Jones Industrial average was
down 6.2% for the year and that the NASDQ composite index was down 39.6
percent for the year. Excuse me but weren't those numbers meant to detract
from the Secretaries comments? I dug out the following facts from an old
issue of the Kansas City Star. On January 1, 1991, the Dow Jones
Industrial average stood at 2633.66 compared to Friday's close of 10787.99.
On January 1, 1991, the NASDQ composite
index stood at 373.84 compared to
Friday's close of 2470.52. The Dow Jones index has increased 409 percent
higher and the NASDQ composite has increased by 660.8 percent. The NASDQ
is down for this year and for very good reason. Alan Greenspan say that
this year the NASDQ had a correction to the "irrational exuberance" of the
past few years. High flying tech stocks were being over priced by wild
eyed speculators who were out to make their fortunes in a matter of months
or years rather than investing in stocks with good fundamentals. So, is it
surprising that this overpriced index closed down 39.6 from last year? It
did not surprise me, I have and we all should have been expecting it. So,
if Fox News Sunday wants to brain wash the masses with, almost subliminal
messages, you should just remember that not all of us are so easily fooled
by these propaganda tactics.

Those Fox Facts have always been cheap-shot ambushes, anyway.
There's nopt a person on this planet that can't be made to look bad by flashing
selective and misleading "facts" while they're speaking.
On the other hand, when a ditto-monkey is speaking, they either go silent
or they flash all the "good" news, never the crap they run against Democrats.
