"You know why the Enron investigation is dragging?
of what might come out of it. The Democrats are totally afraid because
Ken Lay spent nights in the Lincoln Bedroom when Clinton was president.
He's never been there when Bush was president."
--Rush Limbaugh, lying his ass off for the one millionth time this year.
White House records prove Lay stayed in the Lincoln Bedroom under Bush, not Clinton.
The truth molester knows that, but he knows how gullible his sheep are.
Hey, Rush, tell us again how Clinton had Randy Weaver murdered.

Additional doubts about US corporate behavior cause FTSE to fall
a further 2.5%,
while markets elsewhere continue to plummet. Markets tumbled elsewhere,
with Frankfurt down 3.2% and Paris off 2.4%. In Asia, the Nikkei 225 in Tokyo
had lost more than 2.5% to close below 10,000 for the first time since February.
We're going to buy what's left for a song,

Hillary says 2000 election example of Supreme Court gone awry
The 2000 presidential election case between
George W. Bush and Al Gore is an example
of a hypocritical Supreme Court majority that broadens the rights of states only when it
serves conservative ends, Hillary said.
Clinton criticized the court's recent trend
of 5-4 cases that have favored state power over
federal control. The case that ended Florida ballot recounts in the 2000 election was also
a 5-4 vote, but it stripped a state of power to administer its own laws, the former first lady said.
"Perhaps even more disturbing than the court's
impulse to defend state and local prerogatives
is the selectivity of that impulse," Clinton charged.
You've got my vote.

Temporarily incapable of adding and subtracting whole numbers, pundits affected
not to recognize Bush's bogus statistics. Few noticed that his Social Security privatization
scheme counted almost a third of the system's revenues twice--once to "invest" it in
private accounts, twice to pay seniors' benefits. Instead, they focused upon Gore's
clothing, and made a big deal of his exasperated sighs at Bush's absurd pronouncements.

Joe Conason's Journal
Pinocchio in a miniskirt
"Ann Coulter fans, and I use the term loosely, must proceed immediately to the Daily Howler.
In this installment of his ongoing series about her and her best-selling compilation of fabrications,
Bob Somerby provides further details of the flagrant disregard for facts that has always made
Ann so special. As described in today’s Howler, what appears on her book’s final page is either
a mistake that only a moron could make, or a lie that only a madwoman would tell in public.
(I know because I re-checked Somerby’s facts, which took me all of 30 seconds.)
To read this Howler item is like watching Pinocchio hooked up to a polygraph."
Harvey Pitt Wants a Raise?
CEC Chief Seeks Promotion and More Money
Harvey L. Pitt, chairman of the SEC, recently asked Congress for a raise
and a promotion, the New York Whore Times reported on Wednesday.
Hell yes he deserves a raise.
As smoothly as the economy has been running, with honesty and dignity,
we should reward this greedy bastard with a raise - and how about a bonus?
How about some off-the-books stock options for Captain Greed?

A little something to stoke that Vegas Fever
Vegas Trip Report
(saw it on the alt.vacations.las-vegas newsgroup)
In the Bellagio, sat down for a friendly round of BJ before dinner. (He means Blackjack)
Excellent dealer, great cocktail service, and very good drinks.
Real Ketel One screwdrivers, strong, in nice, heavy glasses.
At one point, I hit a couple of stiff hands,
decide to pull back a bit, when I suddenly see 2 hot chicks.
On a whim, I put on 2 betting units. Win. Very next hand, have 2 sixes versus dealer 6. Split em up,
and draw a five on the first hand. Double, draw another five to 16, stand. On the other six, draw an Ace
- soft 17. Double, draw another six to 13, stand. So now I have $100 on the table with two stiffs versus
the dealer's 6 (I'm betting $25 a hand.) !
Moral of this story: hot chicks are good luck.
It's either the Nasdaq under The Unelected Fraud or it's a

as bad as Hoover
George W. Bush is shattering records for the worst first 18 months in office
for a U.S. president as measured by the benchmark Standard & Poor’s 500.
In his first year-and-a-half in the White House, Bush presided over a 36.9
percent decline, almost twice the percentage drop of Herbert Hoover,
the president who led the nation into the Depression.
Clinton Says Republicans Blocked His Audit Reforms
"Asked about President Bush's handling of the economy and his attempts to rally investor confidence,
Mr. Clinton, who was touring the construction site of his presidential library here, avoided criticizing his
successor directly. Instead, he chided Republicans, who he said had blocked his administration's efforts to,
among other things, bar accounting firms from working as auditors and consultants for the same companies.
"I'm sure that some of the people in Congress
that stopped a lot of the reforms I tried to put through
are probably rethinking that now," Mr. Clinton told reporters."

Traditionally, the Army Rangers who guard Area 51 drive white Cherokees.
This SUV looks like a big-ass silver Bronco, but you can bet if you meet an Army Ranger,
he'll be very gentle and polite as he puts pressure on your neck with his boot. You see, when
you get to the spot on the dirt road where it's time to stop, you'll see a sign that says,
"We may shoot you without warning if you cross this line."
Sometimes people get froggy and cross that line and when that
happens, far as I know,
they don't really shoot you, but these Rangers take you into custody and they cuff you and
hog-tie you and "F" with you until you wet your pants. If you give them any trouble, they kick
you around and put their boot on your head/neck until you become compliant. So when you go
to BartFest, if you choose to go to Area 51, do NOT get froggy and step over the line
because if you do, these men will send you home with an arrest record and a story of how badly
you were abused so the next guy doesn't try anything. By the way, there's nothing at Area 51,
that's why it's the most heavily guarded chunk of desert in the world.
You've read what people said about our first gathering.
We intend to top that in Sin City come September.

Cheney, Halliburton and Your Tax Dollars At Work
"The London Sunday Observer reported over the weekend that during Cheney's tenure
as CEO at Halliburton, the company reaped massive rewards in government contracts
and bank loans for foreign deals, including one with a Russian firm currently under
investigation for Russian Mafia connections...The Clinton White House and State Department
tried to veto the Russian deal. The Clinton administration was concerned over intelligence
reports that Tyumen was controlled by a holding conglomerate, the Alfa Group, which had
been investigated by Russian authorities for alleged Mafia connections.
But, after intense lobbying by Halliburton,
the objections were ignored by House Republicans.
One of Halliburton's top lobbyists at the time was David Gribben, who had been Cheney's
chief of staff during Cheney's days at the Pentagon."
They are stealing billions of dollars, but since it's not Clinton,
there will be no serious investigations, no price to pay - nothing.
Burn, baby, burn
"The U.S. military did, in fact, train bin
Laden in all the basic skills he might have
needed to pull off this attack. It's common knowledge that our men in khaki also
trained Saddam Hussein, Manuel Noriega and a host of other vile thugs behind
"blowback" attacks on us. And that the real seat of oil-based terror is Saudi Arabia,
to which the Bushies pander and plead on an hourly basis."

While this is true, it should be pointed out that they did it under orders from Bush.

Subject: GOLD you say??
Don't the Bushes own the gold industry too?
I remember reading something icky about gold mines..
That's another way the B.F.E.E is making a profit on Bush's depression.
The B.F.E.E is in bed with Barrick Mining, the company alleged to have
buring a bunch of miners alive to teach the others that they don't tolerate
work stoppages when thr B.F.E.E has money to be made.
They sued my good friend Greg Palast for telling the
truth about that.
They sued him in England where the truth is NOT a defense in a libel trial.
better not get near the B.F.E.E with the truth - they'll make you pay.
Mining controls 51 percent of the world's gold
A world-wide depression is just what the B.F.E.E needs.
