Oil President Hits a Slick Spot
by Robert Reno
The Unites States now confronts the excruciating problem of having a president
who is virtually owned by the domestic oil industry and is, at the same time,
a virtual hostage to foreign oil producers.
As it is, Bush has an oil man for a vice
president, was an oil man himself and is
the son of an oil man. He has so much oil politics in his blood and Enron friendships
in his administration that if you poked him, you wouldn't be surprised if it gushed out.
Subject: Greg Palast is the best!!! RE: Venezula
In one of your previous issues you had link to Greg Palast's web site on
an interview he conducted about the IMF, WorldBank and globalization issues.
I read the whole thing and one of the topic's
he talked about has come true
-- which is the overthrow of the Venezula's president Hugo Chavez. Here is the quote:
'What they said was here you've got an elected
president of the government and the
IMF has announced, listen to this, that they would support a transition government
if the president were removed. They are not saying that they are going to get involved
in politics - they would just support a transition government.
What that effectively is is saying we will pay
for the coup d'etat, if the military overthrows
the current president, because the current president of Venezuela has said no to the IMF.
He told those guys to go packing. They brought their teams in and said you have to do this
and that. And he said, I don't have to do nothing. He said what I'm going to do is, I'm going
to double the taxes on oil corporations because we have a whole lot of oil in Venezuela.
And I'm going to double the taxes on oil corporations and then I will have all the money
I need for social programs and the government - and we will be a very rich nation.
Well, as soon as they did that, they started fomenting trouble with the military and I'm telling
you: ...the President of Venezuela will be out of office in three months or shot dead.
They are not going to allow him to raise taxes on the oil companies.'
Wow!! And here's today's story on the overthrow:

I’ve been thinking about the whole “collateral
Innocent civilians in Afghanistan are collateral damage from military strikes.
Innocent Palestinians are collateral damage of Israeli military attacks.
Because they are military attacks, they aren’t considered “terrorist “attacks.
At least this is how Bush defines it.
So, if whoever attacked the WTC and Pentagon (clearly
a military target)
were perpetrating military strikes, wouldn’t that make those civilians
COLLATERAL DAMAGE? Not TERRORIST attacks.
That is what logic states.
It is a real pisser to get hung by your own definitions.

Arafat Tells Powell
No Cease-Fire Until Withdrawal
I'm not saying the Middle East problem is "just like" a Billy
but does anyone remember the first Billy Jack Movie?
No, Billy Jack was the second Billy Jack movie, Born
Losers was the first.
In Born Losers, the motorcycle gang corners Billy and the bikini-clad temptress.
Billy (who has a gun) and Tempy are backed into a corner by 8-10 gang members.
Billy says, "Who's in charge?" and
the leader says "I am."
Billy says, "Let us go!" and the gang leader says "No."
So Billy Jack shoots him between the eyes.
Billy asks, "Now who's in charge?"
and the new leader steps up and says "I am."
Billy says, "Let us go!" and the guy says, "Yes, Sir."
Arafat is promising continuous suicide bombings until further
so my question is, why is Arafat still alive?

so let's put those stickers in less illegal places, OK?

I read about it on
Subject: the ted rall items on 13 & 14 april
You should publish a correction of your
item about Ted Rall and the Pentagon attack.
The statement you printed on your Webpage WAS NOT BY TED RALL AND DID NOT
REPRESENT HIS POSITION. He was quoting an Internet conspiracy-monger and saying
that such statements should be read critically and with careful comparison with known facts.
Yes, anyone who clicked on the link would
see that Rall was discussing,
not advocating --but BartCop quoted some reader who was misled and
blasts Rall on the basis of the highlighted statement.
Good point, you are correct. I blame the Catholics for my
poor reading retention skills.
I sometimes read things faster than the speed of light, ...so apologies go out to my
good friend Ted Rall, whose position was inadvertantly mischaracterized.
Woods Captures Third Masters Crown
Facing some of the world's best players, Tiger
Woods gave more
evidence that a chasm remains between him and everyone else.
Three strokes is a chasm if you're Pigboy trying to form a complete
but not for Mr. Perfect, the world's greatest golfer.
I caught a few minutes of the Masters and I was shocked to find out
and third-greatest golfers in the world couldn't sink three foot puts!
It's not that Tiger is so great, it's that everyone else sucks more.
bonus section today
The counter says only one-in-five readers bothered to click, so I'm guessing
that time could be better spend doing something else, perhaps staring into space.
Maybe I failed to provide adequate incentive, but I can't figure
four-out-of-five readers don't bother to read the middle section of the page.
It's not like I dumped the "B" stuff there, it was top-flight stuff, that is,
assuming there's anything of value on the front page.
One close advisor put it this way:
"It's the same goddamn reason we lost Florida. We're Democrats.
We can't read a f-ing ballot to cast a vote for the right candidate,
and we can't figure out how to click on a highlighted f-ing link."
Is that why we were beaten by the most inept politician in history?
Is this why a boy who didn't know that Social Security was a federal program
whipped half of the most successful presidential team in history?
I will not be discouraged by this.
I will not be discouraged.
I will not be.
I will not.

I saw a story in Friday's USA Today saying Lieberman will not
run against Al Gore in the 2004 primaries for president, out of loyalty.
Hey, Joe, I have a thunderbolt for you:
The only way you'll ever be president is if the president dies in office.
You were chosen by Gore as a way for him to distance himself
which was the biggest Democratic blunder since Dukakis climbed in that tank.

A quick look at the record of President Clinton's TV interviews alone -- not accounting
for many times that amount for print outlets, including several with the Washington Post,
and, of course, a lengthy interview with Mr. "Woody" Amnesia himself -- shows that
Bob Woodward's claim that Clinton never gave lengthy interviews is absurd.

Today in History
In 1912, the Titanic sank in the North Atlantic less than
three hours after striking an iceberg.
The captain, Wilson H. Bush III, blamed the previous captain for everything and the whore
press agreed and vilified former captain Robert G Clinton for causing the ship to hit the iceberg.
In 1945, during World War II, British and Canadian troops
liberated the Nazi concentration
camp Bergen-Belsen. Some forty years later, an extremely stupid president named Reagan
would lay a wreath in Bitburg, Germany to "honor" the murdering bastards.
When asked why he would honor mass-murdering scum like the Nazi's,
the most powerful man
on the planet said, "It was a cloudy day and we must've misread the cemetary sign,"
and the whore press said that was a damn good answer and excused the whole thing.
The press has always covered for the crimes and idiocies of the right wing.
...and when a real president came along and saved us from Reagan's
and gave us eight years of peace and prosperity, the who, the whore press was paid to crucified him.
We rented Mulholland
Don't worry about spoilers, you'll need all the spoilers you can get.
I have no idea what happened in this movie.
One thing that drove me crazy was early in the film, there's a lot of dead air.
A guy will say "Good morning," to someone, ...and then 60 seconds will go by,
and then the other guys answers, "Good morning," back to him.
Then another 60 seconds goes by, and the first guy says, "Nice weather,"
and then 60 seconds later, the second guy says, "Sure is."
For a fast-moving ADD victim, this drove me crazy - but there was redemption.
My best guess, which ain't much, is that most of the movie is
because 2/3 of the way thru, everybody changes. The good guys turn evil and
the bad guys turn nice - or something like that. So if you can figure out who woke up,
you might be able to figure out what the dreams meant.
I've read the reviews, and they all said "Huh?"
Lots of cameos, but the credits were written in a 2 font, so I
missed most of them.
Robert Forester was good for about ten words, fewer for Dan Hedaya I saw Mena
Suvari deep undercover makeup and wig as a fifties singer, and Missy Crider had 15
seconds as a waitress, and of course, Lynch's backwards-talking midget played ...a midget.
Towards the end, there's a totally hot lesbian scene between
Naomi Watts and nasty-dancing Laura Herring. This was even better than
Wild Things with Neve Campbell and Denise Richards.
For me, this redeemed the movie. Lynch is a true pervert, like all men.
I don't know what it is with men and lesbians, but show me a man who doesn't
enjoy two attactive women making out and I'll show you a Catholic priest.
So if anyone has a clue what this movie's about, please write.
I'm a big Lynch fan, but I remain clueless, as always.
