"As the United States works to bring peace
around the world our diplomats
and/or soldiers can be drug into the court. That's very troubling."
-- President Monkeyboy, who thinks "drug" is the past tense form of "drag",
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, July 2, 2002
As angry as ever
"A lot has changed since Bush stole the election," says Bernhardt. "The underbelly of corruption
has been exposed and we're seeing the last vestiges of the white man holding on to politics and
big business. It's all coming out now. And I don't think it's a coincidence." Not surprisingly the
political animal in Bernhard has found prey in President Bush and his friends in power - whom she
likens to alien lizards. "Of course I'm concerned," she says. "The infrastructure of America and the
world is caving in, and George Bush is a figurehead of that. I don't think he's an informed person,
or intelligent, or interesting. I think he got waylaid into the job by his family, he's in over his head,
and he's kind of a dunce."
the President's Enrons
by Frank Rich
The fact remains that so far at least five members of that theoretically tiny club
have direct ties to the Bush administration: Enron, Halliburton, Andersen, KMPG
and Merrill Lynch — the last three all former clients of the president's choice as
Wall Street's top cop, the S.E.C. chairman Harvey Pitt. Five for 15: Mr. Bush
could have used a batting average that high when he ran the Texas Rangers.
Subject: Tim McVeigh an Atheist? What th--!
Hello again Bart,
I think I can help you out here, re Paul
Begala's ridiculous contention that the
"The terrorists who blew up the Oklahoma City building were atheists."
I can't speak for Michael Fortier, but in
Tim McVeigh's case, uh, gee, Mister Begala,
since when do atheists request that last rites be administered to them at the time of their death?
Prison officials offered them and Tim accepted;
they were delivered by Prison Chaplain
Frank Roof, they were the Roman Catholic sacrament of Last Rites.
ps: I agree, this Newdow fella was amazingly
cool under fire. Poised, witty, incisive,
logical, cheerful, thrifty, brave, knocked my socks off. I'm IMPRESSED!
Chris, you are correct!
I think Begala just made a mistake, and didn't deliberately lie in the name of religioun.
Religion can make a very good man say/do bad things.

Moratorium on Bush-bashing is over
Bush's approval rating has fallen steadily from 88% to a still-impressive 70%,
while polls show Americans are now worrying far more about the rattled economy
than the possibility of a terrorist attack. It remains to be seen how Bush's once-reassuring
tagline as America's "first MBA president" will sound after more and more of his CEO pals
are dragged off in shackles for the mammoth accounting cover-ups that have been battering
the stock market almost every day.
I quit watching the Sunday shows.

York, New York The greatest city in Las Vegas!
Like it's namesake, NY, NY has everything. They put a Central Park inside.
To get chips, you go to the Wall Street bankers. Surrounding the building, they have
NY-style water boats and tugs spraying water. They have their own Brooklyn Bridge!
You'll find another roller coaster here, the own Gil Grissom
rides to de-stress on C.S.I.
Their Soho Village is jammed with places to shop. The Times Square Bar is worth a look.
While you gals watch Michael Flatly's Riverdance show,
the guys can check out the hogs
at the Las Vegas Harley Davidson outlet, or catch the Rita Rudner show live.
When you're eating in The Village, you'll think you're
in New York because that
roller coaster Grisson rides flies over your head, reminding you of a subway swooshing by.
And just to make you feel at home, they have obscenities spray painted on the walls.
When the downtown properties saw The Strip stealing all the thunder, they banded together
and invested $75M into a blocks-long, street-wide overhead TV screen

Trek The Experience, Las Vegas Hilton
You have to be in decent health to ride. The cast are in Star Trek makeup and they
stay in character as they strap you in, then your "Enterprise" chases the Klingon ship
in a wild ride over Las Vegas at night. Grandma and preggers folk should pass.
Pre-ride Humboldt break recommended - for authenticity.

When Bill Clinton fudged his answers in the sex inquisition,
the GOP and their whore press called it Crime of the Century.
But when Never-Elected lied about "Ken
Lay was a Richards supporter,"
the man who stole billions from thousands, the press relaxed and said,
"George Bush is a good and honorable man, ...so nevermind."

Lie Father, Lie Son
With the Bushes, Lying is a Family Tradition
by Dwayne Eutsey
After all, presidents, even the elected ones, lie. It’s part of the job description:
“The incumbent will swear to uphold the US Constitution while simultaneously selling it out
to wealthy elites and corporate interests. Ability to lie through teeth a must so that no one
can tell the difference. Some travel, occasional weekend and evening work required.”

Don't believe me? Let's ask B.B.S.A. graduate Tom Delay:
Paul Begala read bartcop.com?
I know he reads MWO, but maybe he caught Friday's bartcop.com before his 7PM taping.
I saw an "all new" Paul Begala Friday.
I've never seen this happen before. Carville was there for the first 2/3 of the show,
but then he left, and Paul Begala came out to argue the "under God," thing again.
It was almost as tho Carville didn't want to get into it.
But this time, ...Begala seems to be ...AGAINST ruling that those
words were unconstitutional.
This time, he's talking like a Democrat, instead of agreeing with Satan's own Bob Novak.
Here for the Friday transcript, if you're interested.
(Search for "Begala," it'll start)
See how different his position seems to be compared to Wednesday.
Subject: The Pledge, BartBlocks, and Bigotry
> The primary building block of BartCop-ism has always been equal rights for blacks, gays etc.
> I'm going to have to make that secondary to the new primary building block,
> which is defending the Constitution against infectious religious insanity."
Well, wait a minute. There's no need to
build a new BartBlock or make the other BartBlock
secondary because, when you come right down to it, this Pledge issue is just another side of
the same old Block. And that block is the fight against Bigotry.
That's essentially what the fight for equal rights
and justice for all is: A fight against bigotry.
Let's review our progress. Which bigotries have we vanquished? Well, we've come a long way
on women, blacks, and other minorities. Most people won't openly express their bigotted feelings
towards these groups, and -- thanks to 50 years of liberals busting their asses -- the law does a lot
to protect them. We've managed, particularly in the last 10 years, to beat back a lot of the anti-gay
bigots as well, although thanks to the religious right we still have our work cut out.
Faith-on-Faith bigotry is WAY down.
Hell, these days it's like we've got an inter-faith love fest on our hands.
So what's the Last Truly Acceptable Bigotry in America?
Easy: It is the bigotry of the religious majority towards non-believers.
Atheists, Agnostics, Rationalists, Humanists --
whatever label we choose to go by -- are not even
on the political radar as a group deserving of respect or attention. Politicians can diss us with impugnity.
The Right makes no bones that we're second-class citizens, and the Center and even the Center-Left
thinks we're making a Big Deal out of nothing when we raise a fuss about issues like the pledge.
Non-believers, it appears, are just a pesky nuisance. So our government excludes us. So what?
I can almost hear Paul Begala saying "Come on! What's so bad about that seat at the back of the bus?"
Bigotry and prejudice take many forms. Their
names are legion. That the overwhelming majority of
Americans can not see anything wrong with "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance shows how
incredibly far non-believers have to go before we are allowed our rightful place at the table of democracy.
by Mary McGrory
"Those corporate rogues who cook their books, bleed their companies,
overreport their earnings and speak with forked tongues to investing clients
are paid astronomical salaries, which never seem to be enough. They are also
the kind of people Bush has hung out with all his life. They are the people who
feel that government agencies such as the Federal Election Commission should
subvert in any way they can legislation such as McCain-Feingold -- a bill Bush
signed into law in stealth lest anyone imagine he approved of it."

"We have a president who owes his election
more to a dynasty than to democracy.

We know he was in the oil business. We just didn't know it was snake oil."

Howard Kurtz the worst of the CNN whores?
If Candy Crowley is sick, it's not even a contest...
Is it fair for the press to resurrect that now?
...this has been going on for years, why blame the president?
Isn't the press trying to rope [Bush] into these corporate scandals?
But the problem is that ...a lot of this ...took place during the Clinton administration years
Do you think it was fair for reporters to pepper Ari Fleischer with questions?...
You're saying there's no parallel ...between Monica and WorldCom's $4 billion of misstated profit?
Yeah, that's right, Howie - play the whore for Rush Limbaugh.
Those WorldCom crooks would've never stolen those billions
if Clinton had never met Monica - that's right, you unstable pissant.

Subject: My father
My father, George Parrish, was a ball-turret gunner in WW2.
He turned me on to BC a few months ago and I must admit I'm hooked
(actually hypnotized by the moving Ashcroft eyes would be more appropriate)
and I check your site each day to see what's up.
Dad stopped breathing and was admitted to the
local hospital a few weeks ago
and the doctors were trying to determine if he was still functioning neurologically.
Unable to speak because of a ventilator tube and under sedation, the only way to
communicate with him was to ask simple yes or no questions. The ICU doctor was
performing a few basics tests when I hit upon an idea that would ensure that pop was ok.
"Dad?" I asked as I leaned in close to him, "Is George Bush a son-of-a-bitch?"
He nodded his head up and down in the affirmative
and the physician and I shared
a good laugh and we knew that he was functioning ok.
Sadly, I must report that he passed away on June
28th and will no longer be among your loyal fans.
He did enjoy your website and I'd like to say "thanks" for making him laugh.
Scott, thanks for sending that.
