Too Late for a War Crimes Tribunal
He turns 91 this week, so itís possible Ronald Reagan
canít remember. But Jim Washburn canít forget
Speaking of Bubba, the conservative-bias media went apeshit when he pardoned
fugitive financier Marc Rich. Imagine the howls if Rich had gone on to kill his ex-wife,
dismember her body and burn it. Oregon authorities in December 2000 arrested Robert
Walker Jr. for doing just that to his former bride. Reagan had pardoned the convicted bank
robber in 1981. Law-enforcement authorities could not recall another instance in which such
a violent criminal had received a presidential pardon. Walker had no political ties and no one
knows to this day why Reagan cut him loose.
Great, great article.
Read it and save it for when your ditto-monkey friends say "Reagan was a good president."
Subject: are you a socialist??
It is most unfortunate that I stumbled upon your

would be interested to have a moron like you in their govn't.
Actually, I should have a job in the Gore administration.
The only problem with America is that idiots like
you are afforded the freedom of speech.
I bet you are not even a U.S. National!!!
I'll have you know I'm Catholic first, then American!
God help you, for you do not deserve the protections afforded by our constitution.

Cheney Made Millions Off Oil Deals with Saddam
U.S. firms aren't generally supposed to do business with Saddam Hussein. But thanks to legal
loopholes large enough to steer an oil tanker through, Halliburton profited big-time from deals with the Iraqi
dictatorship. Conducted discreetly through several Halliburton subsidiaries in Europe, these greasy transactions
helped Saddam Hussein retain his grip on power while lining the pockets of Cheney and company
Subject: Groundhog Day
Let me get this straight.
If the Monkey Boy creeps out of his Nebraska bunny
and doesn't pee in his bunnypants, that means Cheney will avoid indictment for another six weeks.
If he does trickle down his bunnypants, Kenny Boy will purchase him the best bunny suit a taxbreak can buy.

Muslim Woman Sues to Wear Veil in License Photo
A Muslim woman in Florida sued the state for revoking her driver's license
because she refused to have her photo taken without the face-covering veil
she wears for religious reasons, her lawyer said on Wednesday.
"I don't show my face to strangers or unrelated
males," she told the Orlando Sentinel.
Guess what, lady - you don't get to drive.
This woman is demanding to have a license without her photo on it.
Hey, Lady, you don't have that right.
What kind of idiot lawyer is helping her sue Florida?
The best part was the U2 show at halftime.
I didn't see many good commercials, but I remember Britney Spears in the Pepsi Time Tunnel
What a game.
I'll tell you who knew - this lady right here.
Geneva Clark, the bartcop.com astrologer!
Last week, I asked her to explain the effect the stars would
have on the Super Bowl.
Here's an excerpt of what she's had on her website since Thursday:
"Virgo is on the cusp of the 1st
house, with the Moon in the 1st. This is the sector that represents the
Rams. Their ruling planets
are Mercury, as Virgo's ruler, and the Moon. Since Mercury was one of the ancient rulers, there are no co-rulers. Mercury's
strength is increased by being retrograde and it's in the 5th house, the area ruling sporting games of skill and chance. Mercury's
only applying aspect is a very tight trine to the MC, which adds to its power. The Moon is in the 1st house with the only major
applying aspect made is a negative square to Pluto, in the 4th. Pluto is given strength by being angular, in the 4th, so aspects
there have added power, with this being an adverse aspect the negativity is stronger. With this criteria, the rulers of the 1st,
representing the Rams, have 3 'yes' factors and 1 negative factor; being the square between the Moon and Pluto.
Both teams appear to be evenly
matched by the positions of their ruling planets and aspects.
But it looks like a slight edge will go to the New England Patriots in a, probably, close game."
Like me, you heard a thousand predictions this week, all
for St Louis.
Besides New England partisans (not that there's anything wrong with that) nobody picked the Patriots.
...a round of applause for Geneva Clark and her on-target prediction.
E-mail Geneva for a private astrological read.
Subject: Commandant Crisco & Calico Cats
perhaps i missed this somewhere in your learned and voluminous tomes on Freedo Bush and the gang
but i just learned today that Commandant Crisco himself may be afraid of kittens. Specifically Ashcroft's
advance team has been rumored to have calico cats removed from places that he will be giving speeches.
Apparently he thinks they are in league with the devil. i asked the two cats -- Thundercat and Spooky
-- who live with my son and i if this whole thing about Calicos was true or not (raise your right paw,
are you now or have you ever been a denizen of Satan?) but they were as quiet as Big Time Dick Cheney
at an ethics seminar. Of course there is the off chance that Ashcroft's nervousness is well founded and
that he is in fact afraid that they will recognize him from Hell's Board Meetings.
Of course Ashcroft's people are denying this like
they've denied he had any hand in covering up the statues
at the department formerly known as Justice. i honestly don't understand the denial; you would think a guy
who admits that he pours Crisco on his head because he thinks he was chosen for public life by God would
have no shame whatsoever.
Anyway, i thought i would pass this little tidbit
along so that maybe you could resurrect the kitten gif
that was once used for another Republithug.
John, MoDo recently beat up Ashcroft for being the scared-y cat

Special treatment for the royal Bush family
Florida police are defending their decision not to test Noelle Bush for impairment
after she admitted having taken a prescription drug before a September 2000 car crash.
Noelle seemed confused and tired after the
early-morning fender-bender in Tallahassee.
But there was no reason to subject her to a blood test because she didn't have red eyes
or slurred speech, police said. Instead, they gave her a traffic ticket and called an aide to
the governor to drive her home.
The Bush Family Evil Empire doesn't have to obey laws.
The cops know better than to arrest a doped-up Bush driving a car.
Nobody challenged my assertion that C.S.I. is now

Re: your ongoing attempts at psychiatry with your "friends."
I'm a mental health professional in Texas (LPC)
and have seen a pretty decent cross-section of humanity.
Take it from me, there are some people who cannot be "saved" (ie, made reasonable), because they don't
WANT to be or because they can't be. Please keep in mind that there are some people out there who are
just NUTS (one of my favorite professional terms that I don't get to use very often).
See the DSM definitions, especially, for psychopath and sociopath.
I'm trying to remember which one of the psychological
greats said the following: "Some people just need to be shot."
I can't recall who said this, but, generally, this was a guy who seemed to believe the best of everybody--at least,
that seemed the case, until I ran across this quote when I was doing some research a number of years ago.
If you like the challenge of such people and don't
mind taking the abuse they send, fine. If you get sick of them,
just block them from reaching your e-mailbox or delete the letters without reading them. I'd like to see an option
that allows us to "return" nasty e-mails--that way, when I get something upsetting from my rabid right-wing
converted-to- Catholicism dad, I could send it back.
Just remember that you can't help everyone.
Some are WAY beyond any kind of help. Period.
