"There is no progress without struggle.
Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet deprecate agitation,
are men who want crops without plowing and planting.
They want rain without lightning.
They want the ocean without the roar of its many waters.
"The struggle may be a moral one, or it may
be a physical one, or it may be both,
but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a fight.
It never did, and it never will."

Condit's Unseemly Silence
Do they read bartcop.com at the editorial board of the LATimes?
Back in 1998, when Bill Clinton was trying to hide his involvement
with Monica, Condit declared that Clinton should end the
'drip-drip-drip .... You can't close this issue without getting all the information out there.'
The disappearance of a person is far more serious than adultery
--all the more reason Condit should have heeded his own words.

> She did not commit suicide.
> People who commit suicide never hide their body.

Ha ha! Lot's of people commit suicide in remote
Her body might never be found.
Sentence C, doesn't necessarilly follow from sentences A and B.
Of course, I was wrong to use the word "never."
It's like saying "Republicans never accepts blacks," when we know that
Slappy and Uncle OJ have both been accepted into the all-white party.
But one advatnage of getting old is this:
If you're 47 and never heard of it before, it's at least rare.
But who calls a friend in California and says,
"I have an exciting story to tell you,"
then packs her bags for a trip and commits suicide?
Who resigns from a fitness club the day before committing suicide?

There was nothing amusing about the Kansas City arrest of Wayne DuMond for the murder of a
39 year-old strangulation victim. Almost needless to say, the victim was a woman. Police say they found
DuMond's DNA under her fingernails. He's also suspected in another woman's murder.
Also not funny were Gov. Mike
Huckabee's efforts to rescue himself from the consequences of
his own folly by blaming somebody, anybody, else for DuMond's release from the Arkansas penitentiary.
"I think you guys are being
played like a cheap fiddle by the Democrats," he whined to reporters.
"They want to make a Willie Horton out of it. And if anybody needs to get a Willie Horton out of it,
it's Jim Guy Tucker and the Democrat Party and it ain't me."
You want to blame me?
Because I signed DuMond's release?
You should blame Clinton.
I hate Clinton, so you should blame him.
Blame Clinton for his release, not the guy who released him.
Subject: Faux News latest outrage
I watched Faux News' morning show
today, (7/6) you know it's called "Fox and Friends",
though a better name would be "Two Boobs and a Bimbo". This show is the one that features
the three imbeciles who sugarcoat the same fascist wingnut agenda that the so called 'Journalists'
spew the rest of the day, thereby making it more palatable for the uneducated masses.
This format reminds me of the Joe Camel ad campaign
used by a tobacco company to lure
children into taking on a deadly habit, by making it seem 'cool'. Well, their first topic was to
continue the 24/7 lynching of Rep. Gary Condit, which is Faux News' latest mission in life.
Reporting every rumor and innuendo as fact, and using as a source that bastion of Journalistic excellence,
(and incidentally, another news source occupied by that Australian wingnut henchman, Murdoch.)
The New York comPost. That was just the
start, the next topic was a story about Sen. Hillary Clinton
declining a ride from Resident Bush on Air Force One to some event in New York. This precipitated a
lighthearted re-hashing of the now discredited White House vandal non-scandal, and this was topped off
with the claim by the imbecillic woman of the trio (forgive me if I don't know her name, I don't want to)
that the former First Lady had stolen items from Air Force One! A direct and unashamed accusation
against the former First Lady and now Senator from New York!
Does the Faux network have no shame? (stupid
question) Is there no recourse for those of us who are
outraged by such breaches of the public trust? Are there standards of integrity that alleged 'news providers'
have to live up to? Help me out here, who can I file a complaint to? I have e-mailed Mrs. Clinton, but I would
like to go further because I feel that I have been violated as well!
Thanks for letting me vent..
Long Island, New York.
Pete, get used to it.
Fox has always been a wall-to-wall circus of half-truths and outright lies.
Fox News is less credible than BartCop's Comedy Treehouse.
Even when I'm lying, I'm more truthful than Fox.
Fox is anchored by Floyd R. Turbo.
Fox would make a good comedy channel.
It's like Archie Bunker - the wildest, most factless, nonsensical, anti-education horseshit that's so many
light years from any standard of accuracy, it would really be entertaining if people weren't buying it.
A Brief Moment in Time
December 30, 1992
Question: Mr. President, on the Christmas
does it give the appearance that Government officials are above the law?
Then-President Bush: No, it should not
give any such appearance. Nobody is above the law.
I believe when people break the law, that's a bad thing. I've read some stupid comment to the contrary.
And of course, I feel that way. But the Constitution is quite clear on the powers of the President.
And sometimes a President has to make a very difficult call, and that's what I've done.
But I'm glad you asked it, because I've read some
rather frivolous reporting that I don't care about the law.
I pride myself on 25 or more years of public service, of serving honorably, decently, and with my integrity intact.
And certainly I wouldn't feel that way if I had a lack of respect for the law. And I don't think there is one single
thing in my career that could lead anybody to look at my record and make a statement of that nature.
So thank you for giving me the opportunity to clear it up.
Thank you all.
Note: The President spoke at 9:45 a.m. in the Rose
Garden at the White House.
The proclamation of December 24 which granted Executive clemency to six
former Government officials for their conduct related to the Iran-contra affair
is listed in Appendix E at the end of this volume.
I was watching "Hardball" last night and
the guests were Sally Quinn and David Gergen.
Now I have always known that Sally was a low class prostitute and would say anything if she could
get in a dig at the Clintons, but the comments by Gergen were so far out there as to be laughable.
He said that "George W. Bush, like his father,
has so much honor and dignity and respect"
that the American people trust him in doing his job. Honor and dignity and respect?
He also said, when talking about Cheney not releasing
the names of those he met with to form his energy policy,
that it's not a big deal in Washington because Dick Cheney "has such a reputation for his honesty"
that we really don't need to worry about who he met with.
It's getting worse week by week and it's scary as hell.
Keep growing that hammer BC.
Thanks.....and a shot of Chinaco Anejo to Bartcop!
Geoff, Gergen is for sale.
I guess he's trying to get a job with Smirky.
If America thought Bush had honor, dignity or respect, he would've won the election.
Pigboy takes on The American Prospect
Limbaugh says he doesn't "coordinate strategy," but he does get together with John Fund and Rich Lowry
and perhaps others to "talk in generics, about how best to respond to these insane liberal attacks."
Is this not strategizing, or am I missing something?
Or -- to borrow a favorite conservative line -- does it depend on what the meaning of "coordinate" is?

I'm no fan of Madonna's but I'll agree she came from nothing and worked her way to the top.
This in contrast to your fat friend who
today declared Eli Calloway a "self made man three times over".
After that statement, he then said that Calloway came from a family with money.
Excuse me you bloated slob (Rush, not you)
but if you came from money then you aren't a self made man.
His pappy gave him whatever start he had in life, like your's did. If Mr. Calloway ran away from home
at age 13, changed his name and started a paper route that grew into the New York Times,
then I'll concede he is a self made man. If his father made him VP of whatever he owned the day he got
out of whatever fancy college Daddy got him in, then he's not a self made man.
To people like Pigboy, Dubya is a self made man.

Illegal Weapons Shipment Seized by FBI
HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA -- The interception
of an illicit weapons shipment
threatens to expose the Bush Regime's illegal covert policy of rearming China.
For the rest of the story,
It's just like old times for the Bush Family Evil Empire
Will the Democrats investigate these illegal arms shipments?
They will unless Karl Rove tells them to "Back off!"
Jenna Bush Gets Slap on the Wrist in Double Alcohol Case
Jenna Bush was fined $500 and had her driver's license suspended in
one alcohol-related case on Friday
and was sentenced to probation in another. She was put on probation for using a fake ID.
The most famous teenager in the world pleaded no contest to the
May 31 incident in which she tried
to use the fake ID to buy a cheap-ass house margarita at an Austin restaurant, Chuy's.
It was her second brush with the law in as many weeks.
In the other case, she was fined $500 and suspended her driver's
license for 30 days for a May 16 incident
in which she was caught drinking beer like a sailor coming off a four-month jag at sea..
Originally, the judge ordered the Texas Tramp to perform community service,
like her daddy when he was
caught with a half-ounce of Peruvian marching powder. Had "J" not been caught with "B" at Chuy's,
the first case would have been dismissed on June 17.
"As you know, any matter dealing with the family
is a family matter, not a government matter.
It is not an issue that the White House is going to get into, and neither is the press," Ari Fleischer warned.
In the May 31 incident, a cop ticketed "B" for underage drinking
after catching her
with a cheap-ass margarita and a shot of Captain Fredo's Tequila at Chuy's.
Restaurant workers recognized the most famous teenager in the world
- duh - and called police.
"B" pleaded no contest last month, and was given community service, just like her daddy on the coke charge.
If Jenna stays out of trouble until Oct. 6, her latest case will be dismissed.
What's the line in Vegas on Jenna staying out of trouble till October?
Rush spent his third hour yesterday playing audio clips of James
the economic policies of the man we've come to know as President Weak & Stupid.
Y'know, Rush is in the position where he could have Carville call
in and debate the issue,
but the cowardly Pigboy would rather hide behind his call screener and scream untrue obscenities
at the innocent instead of having a fair exchange of ideas to see who's right.
Since bartcop.com has been in existence, we've
taken pride in the fact that we don't hide from anybody.
How many times has some bully written with a big chip on his shoulder, wanking on and on about how
untruthful and biased "BartCop's lies" are, only to turn tail and run when I mention a chat room debate?
Rush has the power to make that happen, he can get anybody on
the phone, even President Weak & Stupid
if he wants, but he's a lying fraud, so he hides behind his screener's skirt, instead.
It's so much easier to attack Carville when he can't reply, isn't it, Pigboy?
Rush, you're not even a man.
You're still that same little fat kid who got teased every day at school.
All these years (and hundreds of pounds) later, you still try to get even by hiding and ambushing
anybody who doesn't share your need for a tax cut for the wealthiest of the wealthy.
If you had any balls at all, Rush, if you had any confidence
in your message, if you had any sense
of fair play or even a half ounce of courage, you'd have Carville on your show and debate him.
But no, you can't because you're a phoney and a fraud.
He pledges allegiance to his flag...
"Screw the poor - me & Dick need more money."
"I am disappointed but I've got a lot
of other work to do. If Governor Huckabee
wants to let a thief and scoundrel like David Hale off, that's his business,"

Note: The governor commuted Hale's sentence against the
of the state Post Prison Transfer Board. But there's no outrage, because
it has nothing to do with Clinton's zipper.
Mike Huckabee is a whore.
BartCop is right. I'm a whore.
I'm also a coward, and a hypocrite.
If I wasn't, I could sue him.
But I am, so I can't.
He poses as a God-fearing Christian, but he's nothing
but a partisan whore.
He's giving the convicted felon a pardon because they both hate Clinton.
Oh well, at least David Hale isn't likely to murder a young woman
the way the last guy that Huckabee let out early did.

Is it just me, or does this part seem a little
Kind of like the rumors of trashing the White House and AF-1.
IF you really had an affair with someone, why
would you want them
to sign a document stating that it never happened?
Especially before anyone has even questioned anyone or brought it up.
It smells of Paula Jones.
Maybe it's just me, but it also smells of the
I am not taking conspiracy, but perhaps someone should be.
Tally, funny, I've never had to ask a woman to sign a paper saying she
did not have sex with me.
However, Deborah Shelton's attorney asked me to put in print that I never had sex with her.
Why did President Weak & Stupid beg China for forgiveness in the spy plane affair?
First, remember that his daddy was Ambassador to China, then Click

You spell better than a ditto-monkey, so that's a distinct possibility.

I'd get off Gary Condit's back and I'd never mention Chinaco, Bixby Corn, Las Vegas, Area 51, etc etc etc.
You said, "Unlike you, the democrats are doing something..." but you failed to say what it was.
"I'm not the one who's aching to see my name up in print, that's you."
You've been around long enough to know I print

you've lowered yourself to indulging in goofy talk to see your name in print.
Sure, it takes some ego to put up this page, but

Next time you write some snotty mail, why don't you be specific?

Never will I criticize your site. It's far too

I love it and have even contributed a few bucks from my paper route.
Have to admit, that made me feel good.
I even contribute the odd rant, most of which you reject, but that's okay because I wouldn't publish my shit either.
In fact, I know how busy you've become because
you've e-mailed back saying you're going to publish an article,
and it never appeared. That's the sign of a busy man with too few staff and unfettered access to Chinaco Anejo.
But....I have to write anyway. You did this. You
made me this way. I write because I care, as I know you do.
We all want to participate, but often don't know what to say or write because most of it has been said before
we even think of it. But, we try and carry on by sending in articles, because we're liberals and outraged at this
latest farce of an election and what Bush Inc. is trying to pass off as 'compassionate conservatism.'
I think we're all even more pissed off because

He said this guy Ely Calloway would do business with ANYONE, politics not withstanding.
Gee, isn't that what the Bush Family Evil Empire is famous
Trading with Adolph Hitler because "it was good business?"
Besides, Rush, some of us call that "putting

Ronald Reagan and George Bush committed REAL crimes, but the whore

He died a horrible, tortorous death for his country, at the hands of some ruthless bastards.
He died making America safer for you and me.
