NO TO ASHCROFT
BartCop - Consumer Crusader
Chase Manhattan Bank - founded by Alexander Hamilton, Secretary
of the Treasury
has become a cheap-ass rip-off outfit, and here's the proof:
I get home tonight, after a hard day at work (cough) and what do I find in the mail?
A check from Chase for $1.06.
Someone more stupid than myself (they do exist, you know) might look at that and figure
it was some kind of interest rebate deal, but it's not. It's a trap for the stupid:
On the back, the endorsement read:
So if you cash this check, you "keep" the $1.06, (why that amount?)
but they charge
$24 to your credit card, which isn't even the worst part of it.
In credit, they have a thing called "the Rule of 78ths."
Seventy eight is what you get when you add 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12.
When these rip-off handjobs figure your monthly interest, they first bill you 12/78ths
of a year's interest, which is almost 1/6.
For one month, you pay TWO months worth of interest, but it gets
Say your balance is $2,000. They bill you 1/6 of a year's interest for the first month,
then 11/78ths for the second month, 10/78ths, 9/78ths, 8/78ths and so on.
Butt, ...and this is what they're counting on...
If you buy a tank of gas or a bottle of tequila, they take you
from 8/78ths and shoot you
back to the top in the interest mountain.
So you're back to paying 12/78ths (1/6 of a year's) interest for using your card
Ten dollars worth of gas could easily cost you $40.
This is the dirty secret they don't want you to know.
I'm in credit, and they made me sign an oath not to tell, but "F" them.
They want to take me to court?
I'm ready to dance.
The point is, if I was stupid enough to cash this $1.06 check,
not only would they
charge me $24 extra dollars for their little scheme, they also re-write my interest.
So if you have a credit card with a high balance, cut the card
up, and use another card
with little or no balance for gas, tequila, and pay it off every month.
Alexander Hamilton would be spinning in his grave,
if there was such a thing as spinning after death.
Also, tonight I heard Clark Howard - radio consumer advocate,
tell a big lie.
On one hand, he's a cheap, cheap SOB so you'd figure he's a Republican.
But he wants to see the consumer be protected - he's hardly pro-business,
so why did he tell this big fat lie?
He said when Jimmy Carter was president, he asked
every house to turn the thermostat down to 55 degrees.
I don't remember that, do you?
I remember he asked us to turn them down, but 55 degrees?
He had a girl on the phone who said she kept her thermostat at 70 degrees
and he said, "Whoa! You would've HATED 55 degrees under Jimmy Carter," which means
he was certain of his 55 claim, because you wouldn't say "Whoa!" for a 5 degree difference.
Why would Clark Howard lie?
Is he a mistaken Democrat?
Or a lying ditto-monkey?
Have you been to StopAshcroft.com?
I heard it was THE place to go, so I went there.
It says, "Under construction - Check back at a later time."
Gee, how about we check back in six months?

Subject: Linda Chavez's compassion for the poor
So now we learn that Labor Secretary-designate
Linda Chavez housed — and may
have employed — an illegal immigrant. We don't have enough information yet to discern
whether this was a commendable act of charity or a criminal violation of the labor laws.
And until more facts are in I'm not interested in passing judgment on Chavez.
I finally "get it".
The Confederacy wasn't about slavery.
It was about helping all those poor black souls get settled in America.
It was about compassion.
I'm watching Nightline-ABC's attempted gang-rape of the Clinton
I missed last night's "The Gennifer Flowers Era."
Tonight is Episode two: "The Pre-Monica Era."
ABC News, whorey-owned by Disney, has Judas Maximus Stephanopolous
and Judessa Miximus Dee Dee Myers telling "the truth" about how scared Clinton was
and how they, in their divine wisdom and greatness, were able to save this great nation.
Koresh, where would we be without Judas's hindsight?
Doesn't it figure?
Nightline is less whore than some, but Koppel is bridled with Judas and Judessa, and Disney
is too damn cheap to pay for objective observers, so they get whoever's standing around,
and that just so happens to be two Clinton haters, Judas and Judessa.
Wednesday night, they're doing "The Monica Era," Thursday
is "The Post-Monica Era."
Of course, Friday we'll see "Looking Back - Monica's Legacy" and then next week,
PBS finishes the run with "Clinton's Cock - Why We Can't Get Enough."
I am so proud of the press - looking past all that peace
and prosperity horseshit to
get to the
true core of what life in the Nineties in America was like inside Bill Clinton's zipper .
From: Bardstown, KY
By the way, I live in Barrdstown, KY, the
Kentucky Bourbon Capitol of the world.
(Good Bourbon is much better than the tequila you drink.)
Jerry, it's like religion: If only it were true!
Are you talking about what's available in normal liquor stores?
Or some aged-22-years specialty corn-squeezin's that we can't get our hands on?
If you like fine bourbon, more power to you.
I think we're back to geography.
If you were raised in KY, I can see you being a bourbon fan, just like
growing up in Florida you might think your football teams know offense,
Funny, there's that parallel with religion again.
If you say bourbon rules, I won't fight you.
You like bourbon,
I like tequila,
this is America - we all win.
But if you tried to pass a law that evertyone had to drink
we'd have to tangle, but that's not the case.
That's why Ashcroft must be defeated.
He doesn't drink - he doesn't smoke - and he thinks dancing is "of the Devil,"
If Ashcroft wins, how long before prohibition comes back?
I don't want to give up my Chinaco.
What a perfect parallel!

as long as we keep it away from the schools and the courthouses."

Subject: Rush the Moron
In yet another example of not letting facts get in the way of your argument,
The Bloviated One's comments continue to prove his ignorance. Case in point? Global warming.
Anyone who bothers to pick up a book on meteorology could explain the
global warming/cold winter
connection. To make it simple, in deference to the Republicans in the audience (both of them), the Earth
is a giant heat transfer mechanism. Basically all weather is the result of shifting a heat around the planet.
Those nasty comma-shaped cold fronts that whistle down from Canada? They are pushing the heat around?
Thus if you have a LOT of heat, you need a LOT of cold to move it around. [I'm skipping a lot of the physics here]
To sum it up, global warming means COLDER winters.
Fossil evidence (which according to Ashcroft & Co. is all made up) seems to indicate
that the several Ice Ages were preceded by unusually warm periods.
So we know Rush is wrong, but at least now you know HOW wrong.
Keep the fires burning.

Congressman Bobby Rush, and Senator Dick Durbin were also there to pay homage to a great President.
The President spoke for about a half hour, and remarked that it was
in 1991 at the Palmer House Hilton
that he kicked off his presidential campaign in Illinois, and reminded us from where he took the nation from
the recession of 1992 across to the prosperity and increased opportunity for millions of Americans in the
early 21st century. He had the crowd in the palm of his hand. It's no wonder he's so popular, and why
so many of his supporters are saddened to see him leave the White House.

Bush rules out pre-emptive pardon for Clinton
AUSTIN, Texas (CNN) -- President-select
Smirk said Monday he thinks it's time to
"get all this business behind us" and let Clinton enjoy life outside the White House.
Supreme Cockhunter II Robert Ray has been
trying to pin something on Clinton ever since
Hardon Kenny was run out of Washington as the "most hated man" in America.
SC Ray has not ruled out an indictment of Clinton when he completes his term January 20.
At a news conference Monday, Bush was asked
if he would consider a pardon for Clinton
even before Ray acts.
"I wouldn't pardon somebody who hasn't been
indicted," Bush responded. "I think it's time to
get all of this business behind us. I think it's time ... to allow the president to finish his term,
and let him move on and enjoy life and become an active participant in the American system.
And I think we've had enough focus on the past. It's time to move forward."
"But the suggestion that I would pardon somebody
who has never been indicted,
that doesn't make any sense to me, frankly," he added.
In one of his first acts upon assuming office
in 1974, Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon
for his role in Watergate, a decision that may have cost him election to the White House in his
own right, though historians have credited his act with helping the nation get past the scandal.
That underlined sentence isn't true.
Ford pardoned Nixon for "any crimes he committed or may have committed," while in office.
That's a pardon.

..and you know Rudy's cops had one hand in their pants
as they carried out their duty to "protect and serve."
Bush's Chavez blunder may spell trouble for his other nominees.
By Joan Walsh
Jan. 10, 2001 | Linda Chavez will likely wind
up a footnote in the history of the Bush administration, since she
didn't even make it to her confirmation hearing. But historians will no doubt remember her chutzpah, thanks to
the most brazenly mawkish political goodbye since Richard Nixon's "Checkers" speech.
Margarita Valladaras stood trembling at the lectern,
her mouth obscured by a Plexiglas "Bush-Cheney
Presidential Transition" sign, talking about Chavez, her benefactor. When they met, "I hardly spoke any English,"
Valladaras recalled, and even today her English is halting. The diminutive Latina looked terrified of the television
cameras; her voice cracked. But she closed her remarks with dignity: "I will always be grateful to Linda."
So will many of Chavez's enemies. By asking Bush
to withdraw her nomination as labor secretary, in the wake
of reports that she once housed an illegal Guatemalan immigrant who did household chores in exchange for
some spending money, Chavez eliminated a Bush nominee who would have been easy for Senate Democrats
to defeat. Given that the collegial Senate is considered unlikely to reject more than one or two of Bush's picks,
liberal advocacy groups will be able to concentrate their political power on attorney general nominee John Ashcroft
or would-be Interior Secretary Gale Norton, now that Chavez has been done in by her own hand.
Republicans may praise her "compassionate conservatism,"
but the cavalcade of hard-luck stories she used to
defend herself, all the little brown people she's helped over the years, was stunningly self-serving and patronizing.
"If I don't have Linda Chavez to help me, I don't have anything I have today," said Benson Bui, a Vietnamese
immigrant who lived with Chavez and now works at the Justice Department. One after another they poured
out their hearts, and it was poignant and affecting -- before Chavez dispatched them with a brusque
"Thank you very much," and tore into her enemies.
She blamed her troubles on "the politics of personal
destruction" (conveniently forgetting the GOP's role in
elevating that practice to an art form during the Clinton years) and said not a word about her own role in
sabotaging her nomination. By most accounts, Chavez failed to tell the Bush team about housing the
Guatemalan woman, Marta Mercado; was evasive about whether she knew the woman was in this country
illegally; and finally, according to the Wall Street Journal, tried to get a neighbor not to talk about Mercado
to the FBI when agents asked questions during her background check.
And for someone who's made a career out of blasting
the victim mentality of the civil rights movement,
she played a pretty mean victim herself when the situation demanded it, savaging the media for the way
it played her story, and insisting her withdrawal sent "a very, very bad signal" to all "good people"
who want to help others.
Chavez and her allies turn the old saw about liberals
-- they love mankind, it's people they can't stand -- on its head.
As practiced by Chavez, compassionate conservatism turns out to be about playing Lady Bountiful to the needy,
while deploring solutions designed to help groups of people you don't know, whether women, Latinos or workers.
Of course charity is rewarding, it's admirable, it's necessary, but there's no evidence in Chavez's record that she
understands the role government can and must play on behalf of those who need help.
President-elect Bush said he was "disappointed"
that Chavez would not be in his Cabinet, but privately some
Republicans were steaming that she'd allowed the situation to explode in their faces. But Chavez was a political
disaster waiting to happen, an intemperate provocateur who has used her own race to get ahead as baldly as
any member of the civil rights establishment she loathes.
And for all his supposed sensitivity to Hispanics,
Bush's selection of Chavez showed a tin ear on matters of race
and ethnicity, since Chavez is a polarizing figure widely disliked by Latino leaders. She was also an in-your-face
conservative selection in a post that often goes to moderates, even in Republican administrations. For a
president-select without a mandate, who failed to win the popular vote, this was a huge mistake.
Her withdrawal gives Bush a Cabinet mulligan,
a do-over, a chance to nominate someone who understands
the challenges facing the Labor Department in the increasingly bumpy economy. If he picks another right-wing
provocateur, the Chavez blunder might turn out to be the political blood in the water that tempts Senate
Democrats to savage his other nominees.
Tabloids Set to Disclose Jeb
Bush-Katherine Harris Affair
With Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff
Proving that the ripple effect of the election
recount story is far from over, sources at America's most
notable supermarket tabloids tell NewsMax.com that the papers are set to reveal a bombshell story
about an affair between Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris.
News of the tabloid story - said to be backed
up by three witnesses, all of whom took polygraphs
- has the Bush transition team and Florida governor's office bracing.
A source at the Bush transition team says that
Jeb Bush was soon going to name Harris his chief of staff.
The position of secretary of state has been eliminated under changes made before the recount crisis hit.
The story of Bush and Harris has been floating
around almost from the day the election nightmare hit
on Nov. 8. Various press outlets tried to insinuate a relationship between Harris and Bush to undermine
her independence and impartiality.
But the story won't die. Bush sources say the
continuing reports are nothing more than a smear campaign
as part of an overall effort to undermine President-elect Bush's legitimate election
If this turns out to be true, if Jeb's illicit shack-up honey
certified the quick-count,
and installed his brother against the voter's will, can Smirk even stay in office?

St. Linda's Passion
By Timothy Noah
I wonder if a t-shirt with that graphic on it would "move?"
I should convene a focus group and a poll.
Must...generate...revenue to stay alive.
I am a former liberal Democrat, and recently switched
to the Republican party.
I don't really like either, but I had to choose the one that lined up with me the best.
Why in the world did you change?
Who talked you into it?
How strongly coud you have felt about being a liberal democrat
if you were willing to shuck it and go to the other side?
I am constantly researching and studying the issues
and how each side views them,
and I am unable to find a fair and balanced review anywhere.
FoxNews is about the best, but they are slanted depending on who is reporting.
Rush Limbaugh is obviously VERY slanted, but at
least he gives the other side's story,
gives his side, and then explains why he thinks he's right.
I have never heard Rush give the other side.
He'll say, "Here's what the liberals think," then he makes shit up.
He is very compelling to me because I realize he's intelligent, and "on top" of things.
Rush is not intelligent. Well, he is sorta,
when he comes back from a break,
but that's because his staff is writing him notes. He always goes to a commercial
whenever a caller asks him to explain something. He'll say, "It'll take some time,
so let me get this commercial out of thew way first," then his staff scrambles for answers.
He also provides links to articles and facts that he points out.
Sure, but he only reads articles that back him
Take global warming.
The US Government, NASA, the National Atmospheric/Oceanic whatever, and all the other
sane, scientific organizations say it's real, but Rush found a professor at Boise State
that says it's not, so he'll say, "They have their experts - I have mine."
That's what I call horseshit.
I would like to see that same format from a website like yours.
Perhaps you're new, but I've said again and again
that I've been looking for almost
a decade for somebody who will speak for the opposition - are you that man?
Instead, I get media "whores" and Rush is a piggy. (even though he lost like 140lbs 2 years ago).
What you "get" is plain-speaking in the language
most Americans use.
Any time you see me use the word "whore," I'm explaining a Republican or media crime.
And Rush's porcinity is not dependent on his weight. If he died of starvation, he'd die a pig.
Granted, there are hundreds of sites more intelligent than this one, but unlike Rush, I've never claimed
to be anybody's savior or that I possessed "Talent on loan from God," and therefore I'm right.
I'm right because nobody can show me where I'm wrong.
I'm here to have a good time and cause the bad guys to have a bad time.
It is extremely rare that I see a conservative
Republican website, article, etc.
that calls liberals "stupid" or other demeaning names besides liberal, left-wing etc.
That was well-phrased, they don't do exactly that.
What they do is spend hundreds of hours a week explaining, for instance, how Bill Clinton
sold the sacred ground at Arlington because he enjoys peeing on the graves of our war dead.
I have never said anything that ugly in 377 issues.
However, almost every liberal site I see calls
Republicans racists, hate-mongers,
stupid, dumb, rednecks, trailer-trash, etc.
That's because republicans are, by definition,
racists, hate-mongers and rednecks.
Why do you think Bush carried Mississippi, Oklahoma, Alabama and the Carolinas?
Did I do the right thing and switch parties?
It is looking more and more like I did.
Do you feel at-home withracists, hate-mongers and rednecks?
It looks as though your website is fairly popular.
It would be great to see a tit-for-tat on it,
like the Paul Begala-Ollie North show. I would be willing to research and write an "opposing" view,
and let you write a retort. I think it would spark interest, and since the majority of your readers
are obviously liberal, it would spark feedback and perhaps spread the word-of-mouth.
I love a good debate.
What might work easiest would be for you to pick something I wrote and refute it.
Try to put me in the box. Catch me being a hypocrite. Unmask my shaky arguments.
If you send me something that's good, (and not too long) I'll print it with my rebuttal.
Please let me know if you're interested, and I'll
submit an article on whatever topic you choose.
I think I have a unique viewpoint seeing as I just in the past 6 months switched.
Maybe Article One should be, "Why I switched."
I see more and more problems with the liberal
side as I look back on it,
and am discovering the problems with the conservative side as I delve more into it.
Need any help listing the flaws of the GOP?
Also, I would be willing to help with website
your site has some cool graphics, but it's a bit dated.
I have some spare time in the evenings; I could devote a bit of time to it.
Now you're talking!
I need a new look in the next seven days.
Send me something...
Let me know what you think!
I'm ready - rant away.
One other thing - you had some possibly-valid complaints with bartcop.com
but do you know any other site that lets the opposition speak?
I don't just mean a reader's forum, but is there, for instance,
a GOP site where the host takes challenge mail from all comers?
If I put the BartCop Quiz on somebody, they'll either agree with
they will refuse to answer the question, which is a victory.
So if someone runs into a Republica-led website where the owner takes questions
unlike that little coward over at rushlimbaughonline.com let me know, OK?
Wish I'd found this sooner...
Can you keep a secret?
It looks like I might begetting back in the club
Joe, my old Craig Livingstone (bouncer) hung around clubs long enough that
he found someone to sell him a nightclub and they did their own financing.
He's talking about needing a partner, and who better
than Ol' BartCop?
Whatever you do - don't tell Mrs BartCop.
Boy, she'd throw a Hillary-sized fit if she found out.
You see, the first club I owned I lost about $40,000.
The second club I owned only lost about $4,000.
So if the pattern continues, I'll make $32,000 this time.
Can't miss, huh?
It's a live music, full liquor club.
It looks like a dump on the outside, all rock clubs do, right?
but inside it's pretty nice on the inside.
But don't tell Mrs. BartCop - whatever you do.

Mark your calendar - January 10th - Rush told the truth.
Bush Boys - Murder and Cocaine II
BC, you know that I live in Arkansas. In the early 80s I worked
for the IRS.
This is no shit BC, I was part of a team that looked into Seals operations in Mena until
the investigation was killed. I was young and out of the overall loop. My name never was
placed on any documents. I was a Tax Fraud Investigative Aide out of Little Rock
(that right there is enough for them to find me if they want to).
I went to Mena. I started doing some investigating. I called in
a IRS Agent - we went to part
of his property - Picture this: you go down a dirt road for a mile or so. The road curves around
a piece of property near the end of the Mena Airport. This property is completely surrounded by trees.
Inside these trees is a very large, overgrown field. In the middle of this field, hidden by brush and tall
grass is a building. One wall is collapsed inward but 3 sides stand. On one side is a wooden box attached
to the wall, inside the box is a working phone and you know you are 1-2 miles from anything here.
We use the phone collect to get the phone number and head out,
suddenly one of those old hunting hounds
starts up its deep bark.... The IRS guy pulls his gun out and I head for the tall grass damn fast. We get the
hell out. A few days later the IRS agent tells me to start pulling bank records. I find a lot of money, the small
town folks tell me that there is more than one account.. More money, more purchases... Not too long after
that I am told that the case is being dropped. The IRS guy kind of keeps up on this.. He pokes around
some more. 6 months or so later ( not sure of time, could be longer because I didn't put things together ).
He's 'retired' from IRS... Later still, he try's to bring up some
stuff that he found and
strange accusations come up about him and his grandchild. Later still, he dies...
BC, I think that I may have mentioned some of this before to you
but You are the first person I have told all this to.
And to tell the truth, I'd be scared to tell it again. You can see why. I was just a green ass kid back then and didn't
know or understand anything. Now, the little I know, might be too much for some people. ( maybe I just think too
much of myself but I don't think I'd get a second chance if I was wrong, so forgive my pessimism). I even plan on
deleting this from my sent box. I don't even know why I sent it to you. While I reread it, I almost killed it twice.
That is what I think and like I said, I don't know much. It sounds like so much bull but it was true.
Subject: SPACE ALIEN BACKS BUSH FOR PRESIDENT
WASHINGTON -- In a surprise move that has astonished political
pundits, the space alien that
endorsed Bill Clinton in 1992 has switched party allegiance and is backing the idiot Smirk.
The political stunner came after a two-hour, hush-hush
meeting in a Washington hotel suite, during which
the extraterrestrial quizzed Smirk on his knowledge of international affairs, basic astronomy and plans for
the future before agreeing to back the candidate, according to respected UFO investigator Dennis Baleri.
Said Baleri, "At the end of the meeting, the alien shook hands
with Smirk and told him,
'You have my support. I am behind you 100 percent.'"
"Governor Bush is ecstatic," said his aide. "He's now convinced that he'll be a shoo-in this November."
Did you see NYPD Blue last night?
They promise us nudity, so we watch,
and then they give us Silver Spoon boy's ass.
Next week they'll show Sipowicz's ass and we don't want to see it!
They have Kim Delaney, who's getting up there in years,
and they have a cute, young cop - Sheri Rappaport,
who looks extra-awful in this photo,
but she's a goddess next to some man's hairy butt.
Either put the babes on the expose list or get out of the nudity business.
Mr. Blackwell's list of fashion horror is out.
Dr. Laura Schlessinger:
"When it comes down to fashion horror,
no one does it better than Dr. Laura.
A turtlenecked terror."
Jeb Bush adultress Katherine Harris:
"The pretty, brassy lassie from Tallahassee needs cosmetic direction."
Pretty? Katherine Harris?
I knew you were gay, Mr Blackwell,
but I didn't know you were blind.
Subject: Hell is Freezing, Pigs are Flying, and Rush Told the Truth
Toward the end of the first hour today, Rush said
that Linda Chavez deliberately lied,
and that's why she shouldn't be confirmed.
I only caught a minute of it, but I was in shock.
Rush was telling the truth. I mean an
I've only heard him purposely tell an unpleasant
truth once before.
What do you think his motive was?
I don't know.
I've heard Rush spin like a top with the most ridiculous excuses in history
but today he just gave us the facts and told the truth (for a minute or two)
I'm glad somebody else heard it besides me.
