"Not everyone wants more, or at least not everyone
wants more in circumstances like that.
The idea of getting into a struggle to squeeze out another $5 million when you already have
a $100 million seemed to me absurd, a misallocation of energy and interest. It's not as if you
can buy a better steak if you're already that rich. It's not as if you can buy a better anything.
So why fight for another five?"
-- Peggy Noonan in the WSJ on Enron, but she could be talking about people like Rush and Laura,
people who have $100M in the bank but keep telling lies just to deposit that extra nickle
Is An Idiot!!!!!!
by Kelley M. Simich
I saw this myself, so don't bother writing to say it didn't happen.
Last night I was flipping thru channels, and I caught some of
the Burt Reynolds story on E!
(No, not Marty's fine BartCop Entertainment page, there's an E! television network, too.)
They interviewed friends of Burt and critics and then I saw that
pompous bastard Michael Medved.
Here comes the unbelievable part:
When Medved spoke, he didn't mention Clinton's penis or shagging interns.
Can you believe that?
Swear to Koresh, I saw it with my own eyes.
I even taped it!
They say if you live long enough, you eventually see everything.
I guess that's true.
the Net With Jesus!
by Judy O'Christian
Praise the LORD! Jesus got it right when He picked our Godly President Bush and
Attorney General John Ashcroft! Truly, if the liberals were in charge, the USA wouldn't
have paid off the debt owed to the evil UN and NATO satanic organizations and the liberals
wouldn't have even allowed NATO planes to fly along America's coasts! I don't know of any
better way to prevent their New World Order than that! Bush is following the Holy Bible,
while the liberals caused the problem in the first place!

I am 16 years old and have been a long time reader
I find that you are the only person in this country who agrees with me at every turn.
You have a wonderful website. Anyway the new black backround was a little hard
to get used to and people where complaining about how much their eyes hurt.
They must really enjoy your writing to sit through
pain like that.
Me being 16 and having 20/20 vision didn't have this problem.
Thanks again for always speaking the truth.
discovered in van confirmed as suicide victim
Gunshot caused death of Denver consultant
An autopsy report has confirmed that a man whose
body was found in a van
parked in the Pike National Forest last week committed suicide.
Snowmobile riders discovered the body of James
Daniel Watkins, 59,
in a snow-packed parking area off Rampart Ridge Road on Dec. 1.
Watkins had been missing since the afternoon of
Nov. 13, when he left work
at the downtown Denver accounting firm of Arthur Andersen.
That makes two, both "suicides."
I need to get one of those Little League umpire ball & strike
for when these Enron/AA guys start dropping two at a time.
"I have my eye on you evil-doers. Did you think you could
read this subversive website without me finding out?
I'm reading your e-mail.
I'm reading your snail mail.
I have cameras outside your home, and a tap on your phone.
suspended that Freedom of Information commie crap,
and we've passed secret laws to protect your freedom.
This is what makes America great - that I can protect you so well.
is the only warning you're going to get.
Turn off this web page right now and don't come back!!
If you ever return, if I catch you at bartcop.com again, you'd better
have made your peace with God because you are an evil-doer.
Like the president said - you're either with him or with bin Laden.
Do what we say and you won't be tortured."
'Bias' isn't supported - because it's not true
Bias, by former CBS newsman Bernard Goldberg, is long on name-calling and vitriol,
but short on substance. "Delusional," "hypocrites," "Lilliputians" - these are just a few of
the words Goldberg uses to describe journalists in general, and his old CBS colleagues
in particular. He quips that if CBS News were a prison, many of its employees would
be Dan Rather's "bitches."
It's ironic that Goldberg's book has come
out during a time when right-wing media watchdogs
- who can find a socialist tilt in the weather report - are offering virtually nothing but praise for
mainstream journalists' coverage since Sept. 11.
I read TIME's review of the Goldberg book.
They said an example of the book's "liberal bias" was during Clinton's impeachment, Peter Jennings
would identify people on the TV screen as, "Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland," but
then say "Senator McConnell of Kentucky, ...a very determined conservative."
Well, hell, I hate to say something nice about that idiot Jennings,
but all he was doing was pointing out
the players, like when John Madden says, "Strayhan holds the record for most sacks."
That's not bias, it's doing play-by-play on a developing story. The maddog conservative Republicans
were pushing impeachment, not the sane middle or the left. Jennings was just trying to do his job.
I was reading some Michael Dare back issues yesterday. In
his 9/11 report, he said
"Even vicious anti-Bush sites like bartcop.com are saying today isn't the day to attack Bush."
The word "vicious" didn't show bias, he was just pointing out the players.
If I was a pink tutu Democrat, I might be upset with Dare...
Goldberg is, as predicted right here, a big, big hit with the
Fox News angry, old, white, rich boy's club.
I think Goldberg and his "everybody's against us" whining should go toss off.
For all your purported hatred of Bush & Co.,
you are obviously on their side.
You're on the side of Israel, and consequently on the side of Ariel Sharon,
the Bush junta's wunderkind. You also favor bombarding the downthroden.
Stich, ...can I call you Stich?
I don't think "bombarding the downthroden," is an exact quote,
because I don't even know how to spell downthroden.
You are still an idiot in my book and I'm ashamed someone like you is 'supposedly' on my side.
That's odd, because I'm really pleased to be on the team with you, Stich.
You're so pleasant and easy to work with.
I say 'supposedly' 'cause you're giving the liberals
and the left a bad name.
I do think this is deliberate on your part.
Hey, if I was anti-liberal I'd be rich.
Criticizing you means being your enemy, you're not frightful enough to be my enemy, chump,
Who told you I was trying to frightful you?
Are you getting secret messages from this website?
...that will be giving you too much importance,
much more than your sorry ass deserves.
I've received emails from many who dislike your guts and feel the way I do.
You mean from the others who say I favor bombarding
the downthroden? .
Wake up, you, whoever you are, you're so inflexible you're antagonizing your own side...
I should be more like you, Stich.
Right to Die-It's What Jesus Would Do
by Fr. Mushroom
I got some interesting mail today.
I had three requests for stickers..
But there was a bulky yellow envelope, too.
When I picked it up, I could tell there was liquid inside.
Some exotic tequila, ...I thought.
But turns out it was a bottle of Vermont Grade A Medium Amber
made by Maple Grove Farms of Vermont, Inc.
"The Pride of the Northeast Kingdom," which sounds like Kennybunkport* to me.
It was sent by Kevin Hickey...
I'll try some in just a minute, but he also sent a generous contribution and a CD of nature pictures.
No bikini babes, ...no, ...none of those at all, ...it was all sunsets and snow scenes and stuff,
so you'll be seeing his pictures now & then at the top of the page.
By the way, if you have anything that you think I should test,
something like, oh, I don't know...
maybe like, well, tequila or perhaps a bottle of your best home brew or, ...oh, I don't know,
some local treasure that I've probably had no chance to taste, please send it to the PO Box.
Now, I'm going to taste Kevin's Northern Comfort.
Damn, it's thick.
Are you sure this is whiskey?
It's very thick and very sweet.
I'm about eight shots into it and I can't feel a thing.
Wait a minute!
This isn't whiskey - this is maple syrup!
Damn, I'll bet it'd taste good on some waffles.
I didn't want to step on Fr. Mushroom's right-to-die rant,
but I want to remind people that the Bible says the first miracle Jesus performed
was the divine creation of some Chinaco Anejo for some drunks at the Wedding at Canaan.
If Jesus can create wine for the party people who drank themselves
why can't we use another of His gifts to alleviate pain for the dying?
Ashcroft and the GOP are against pot "because it's illegal."
Take religion out of government.
It's the only sane thing to do.
If you are a reporter with a story that your editor won't let
you run, contact me.
If you're "just a nobody" with some information and you have no way to get it out, contact me.
You heard it here first
Rumor is that as Enron and Halliburton implode, Cheney will step
down "for health reasons" in March,
...and you won't believe who they're looking at to take Cheney's place.
They say Condi could fill the much-needed intelligence void that Cheney's absence would create.
It also puts Weak & Stupid in the position of being the first to "APPOINT" a black and a woman as VP.
They figure Condi can bring blacks and women over to the dark side for November 2004.
The hard right is fuming that "a spear-catcher" would be a heartbeat away and let's not kid ourselves.
Between pretzels and impeachment, Bush may not last another three years.
The idea that "one of them" might be president is causing turmoil for Team Smirk
Well, he's out of a job, and since Bush knows Rudy will always be remembered as the man
who stood tall when America's president went AWOL on September 11th, he's a net plus.
Rudy's still working on that whole adultery angle.
Since they impeached Clinton for catching a little tongue, how do they justify VP Rudy
banging his adulteress while his wife and kids are back in New York?
Further down side for both:
If Bush is impeached or loses a battle with a Saltine, we'd have another unelected republican president.
Think now - Bush stole his throne after losing the 2000 election, his Daddy and Saint Reagan took power
my making an illegal deal with Islamic Jihad, and Gerald Ford was appointed by the third-biggest crook
to ever occupy the White House.
That means you have to go back to 1968 to find the last legally-elected
(And boy, what a winner he was, too)
Oh, God, why are you punishing us this way?

Ryan invites Castro to Illinois, tongue kissing alleged
HAVANA, Cuba--Gov. Ryan arrived here Thursday, met with Fidel Castro and invited him
to Illinois, where Ryan said he would host a state dinner in honor of the longtime Cuban leader.
The two had a warm meeting at the presidential palace, where they expressed admiration for each other.
Let's dump this stupid embargo and Castro will be gone in 6 months.
Once those people get a little taste of America they're not going back
I imagine half the teenage boys in Cuba would swim north if they saw
a Britney Spears performance and someone told them she's into Latino men.
A Krispy Kreme?
A table dance?
A White Castle hamburger?
The South's Finest Chocolate?
Throw in some sports, some rock n roll and Jerry Springer and we have a revolution.
"Mr. Bush, tear down this embargo."

Quentin Tarantino Left Jennifer Garner Black & Blue
Tarantino was great on last week's first-of-two parts Alias.
Maybe he just plays that same insane character real well, but he's the best!
Speed metal soundtrack, the snappy Tarantino dialog, the language mangling...
When you're tied to a chair, you do not want QT in charge of your comfort.
