Morons or Both
by Ted Rall
"Under normal circumstances, even the suggestion that a president would deliberately
stand idly by as his citizens were slaughtered en masse would be appalling. George W. Bush,
however, tells Congress to go to hell whenever it requests documents or summons his staff
to testify. Such a man is capable of anything. There's no smoking gun-evidence that Bush was
told about the exact specifics of 9-11-so far. But it's hard to escape an inevitable, disturbing
conclusion that itself bears consideration: We are in the hands of liars, morons or both."
I know this Ted Rall fella.
He's Al Qaeda - I can smell it!
I'll bet he's bin Laden's top lieutenant.
This is Field Marshall Ashcroft!
I need a torture chopper at bartcop.com right now!
These punks need to know what patriotism feels like.
It feels like 10,000 volts to the gonads, that's what!
Subject: Bush Failed Presidency Enhances Clinton Legacy
Every day George Bush is frustrated by another
Contrast his failures with the enormous success enjoyed by Bill Clinton.
Quite possibly we have gone from the most successful presidency to the
least successful in just 18 months. Let's look at the report cards for each.
1. Cultivate and maintain consumer
Clinton A Bush F
2. Cultivate and maintain investors'
Clinton A Bush F
3. Attain and Maintain a budget
Clinton A Bush F
4. Create jobs.
Clinton A Bush F
5. Anticipate national security threats
and protect America.
Clinton A Bush F
6. Protect our environment.
Clinton A Bush F
Gee, this looks like the same report card that
these guys earned in college.
Clinton was first in his class, and George didn't do as well.
losses, real-world impact
As stocks losses mount - now $8 trillion since peak
- tough choices face retirees, colleges, and nonprofits.
Squeeze on schools
There will be some serious cuts in ... operating expenses this coming year.
Some will need Draconian plans.
Business climate soured
When the market is going down, they become reluctant to invest in their
own business, including new hires.
(Sidebar: I just heard Rush imitator Glenn Beck say "this was only paper money...")
Retired? Maybe not
"I made arrangements to be comfortable in my golden years
and markets have betrayed me."
The markets betrayed you?
No, Sir, you were betrayed by
the Bush Family Evil Empire,
the media who lied to elect him,
insatiable Republican greed and
the pink tutu Democrats who kiss Bush's ass.
Bart, please, those are such harsh words!
Dubya's a good and honest man.
Smart, too. You just wait and see...
Be a patriot, Bart. Lie back and take it!
past business practices have stripped Bush
of his pretensions to moral leadership
"Bush still has high job approval ratings in the 62 percent to 72 percent range because we
have no choice --he's the only president we've got. But he's getting tiresome. Even his boyish
crinkly-eyed winks at "press conferences" are becoming annoying. His demands for cleaning up
business are undercut by his own self-serving behavior 12 years ago. And when asked for details
to clear up doubts about whether he had insider trading knowledge at Harken Energy Corp. when
he made $850,000 on stock sales, he rebuffs the request."
Everybody likes prayer in school, right?
Are there any queers in the theater tonight?
Get them up against the wall!
There's one in the spotlight,
he don't look right to me,
Get him up against the wall!
That one looks Jewish! And that one's
Who let all of this riff-raff into the room?

Subject: Possible Minefields: Pitt's client list
"Below is a list of SEC Chairman Harvey Pitt's
law clients at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson.
The list was filed by Pitt with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics on May 24, 2001.
It contains only clients from whom he received $5,000 or more since Jan. 1, 1999."
Comment: You will NOT believe how long this list
It goes on longer than the Rodney King beating
...and this is the guy Bush hired to protect investors from the Wall Street jackals?
Excerpts - each phrase is from a different FREEPER poster:
This is probably the most dangerous period in American history.
This is frightening on an Orwellian scale.
We are being sold down the river by republicans,
That was an asinine thing to say "giving soldiers arrest powers".
America is dead .... the police state curtains are descending.
...did I mention these are Freepers saying these things?
single file, "citizen" and be prepared to 'show your papers' as required...
Bush hasn't a clue. I doubt he has even read the US Constitution
Dubya can be trusted with these powers, he's our king!
Beware, that is what Hitler promised his people as he guided their neck into the noose.
I'd say many Americans are making the French look bold as of late. It's embarrassing.
This is what the hard right Freepers are saying about theUnelected Fraud!
But Bart, why can't we just blindly follow?
Why can't you and the Freepers just bend over like we did?
The only way this could get worse is if Bush had tanks in the street.
Alabama Activates Tank Unit
A day after President Bush's release of a homeland defense strategy calling for
the possible domestic use of U.S. military forces, Alabama activated a 300-soldier
Army National Guard tank battalion as part of a homeland defense force.
In a statement released Wednesday, Alabama
Gov. Don Siegelman said the Ozark,
Ala.-based 1st Battalion, 131st Armor "is equipped with modern battle tanks, the
M1A1 Abrams" and "will serve in the homeland defense role within the United States."
...and you still don't own a gun?
Do you realize if Bush goes completely crazy,
it'll be up to me and the Freepers to save you?
Fried Stakes at WorldCom
Before aggrieved Republicans complain again that linking them to the corporate malefactors is unfair,
they (and everyone else) should read Neil Weinberg's fascinating Forbes scoop on the WorldCom
implosion. Weinberg reveals that the fraudulent accounting maneuvers now considered so shocking
by everyone from WorldCom directors to SEC chairman Harvey Pitt were exposed more than a
year ago in a shareholder lawsuit that included copious evidence...the judge dismissed the shareholder
lawsuit last March with prejudice, indicating in his opinion that the plaintiffs had fabricated their
amazing allegations about the company's chicken-fried books."
Hey, a crooked judge is something every Republican needs
Reminder: Joe Conason is daily now at Salon.com
"The Bush administration's post-Sept. 11 anti-terrorism
tactics — secret detentions
of suspects, denial of the right to trial and now citizen spying — have in common a
lack of faith in democratic institutions and a free society. If TIPS is ever put into effect,
the first people who should be turned in as a threat to our way of life are the Justice
Department officials who thought up this most un-American of programs."
-- The New York Whore Times
Why are you turning on your boy, after working (and lying) so hard to get him elected?
Yet Another Pay Raise
Congress again for the fourth year in a
row voted themselves yet another pay raise
just before leaving on a month long vacation. The rest of the country is in a recession
and the stock market is crashing. Corporate thieves stealing billions as people's retirements
are being wiped out. Yet Congress feels they deserve a raise while the nation suffers.
I still believe that the salaries of congress
should be tied to the minimum wage so that those
at the bottom, who also deserve a raise, can make a living. It seems to me that Congress
voting themselves another big raise ($5000/year) is fundamentally unfair.
Bush Cabal Drives US to the Brink of Collapse
by Al Martin
Another week has passed, as we inch ever closer to the economic collapse
of the United States. During this week we have reached several new important
milestones. Another $750 billion of market capitalization has been lost, thus
bringing the total loss in market capitalization (during the eighteen months of
the George Bush II Regime) to $4.75 trillion.
This may be our last chance to party as a free people.

The Bourne Identity
I used to say Matt Damon couldn't act, but then I was impressed
with his work in
The Talented Mr Ripley. Now, he's getting better every film.
Damon must've spent weeks working on the fighting scenes, they
are the best!
Plus, it has one of the great chase scenes ever put on film.
This film does not insult your intelligence - how rare
Go see it - be impressed.
the Dots for a Disturbing Picture
by Todd Gotlin
There's been a lot of talk recently about connecting dots--at least when the enemy is terrorism.
Connecting the dots: That's what the FBI, CIA, NSA and the rest of the so-called intelligence
agencies failed to do before Sept. 11. Important facts got to somebody's files, but the crucial
work of interpreting them, of connecting them to other important facts, never happened, and so
the full picture remained hidden. Thanks to whistle-blowers and belatedly mobilized members
of Congress, the difference between dots and pictures is now well understood.

Maybe that bit's getting old.
Someone suggested if I calmly and respectfully plant the seed
in the reader's mind
that a few quid each month towards making the hammer higher might eventually pay off.
Damned if I know how or why, but bartcop.com
has become more than a tequila treehouse.
People are meeting here and a convergence of ideas has happened.
If you enter the MIRC

If you post an idea on The BartCop Forum, thousands of like-minded people might see it.
If your letter or your cartoon gets posted on this page, dozens might see it.
If you post a death threat to Bush & Cheney, Slate.com

So, ...it was suggested instead of the hard sell, I might mention
that a few pence

I'm so old, I remember when Salon & Slate weren't trying to suppress the left.
How much do give, you ask?
The $17 figure was suggested as a reasonable monthly amount.
That's 54 cents a day.
Is bartcop.com worth 54 cents a day?
I think so, but that's because it takes about 8 hours to produce

Bush & Ridge, in the name of "stopping terra," have suggested
using the military on us.
Would it hurt to fund those who vigorously oppose ideas like that?
They read it in Palea Epidavros, where they smoke their hookas.
They read it in Montreux, where Blackmore wrote Smoke on the Water.
They read it in Odessa, Texas just before buss open from the heat.
