"President Bush recently signed a bill making
Yucca Mountain the national dumping site
for radioactive waste. It's about 70 miles north of Las Vegas. Tons of nuclear waste will
be buried there. Yucca Mountain is close to the Mustang Ranch brothel. How does that
sound, radioactive hookers! You'll definitely catch something!

President doesn't have absolute military authority over Americans
"No citizen shall be imprisoned or otherwise detained by the United States except pursuant
to an Act of Congress. Congress passed this law in 1971 in response to concerns the executive
branch could overstep its authority during a national emergency and hold, without charge,
Americans deemed dangerous or disloyal.
So why are two Americans in that very predicament today?"
The whole state is shocked.
I don't have all the details, but three Oklahoma football players
for "alcohol-related" crimes Wednesday night, probably in Norman. From what I
know so far, the three were in a car, and the driver was clocked going 30 in a 25 MPH zone!
Swear to Koresh!
This is not a BartCop gag!
But hold on, it gets worse.
The driver was tested and was found to have a blood alcohol content
Do you know how serious that is?
Had he been four times drunker, he would've been charged with driving while intoxicated.
Oklahoma hasn't seen a scandal of this magnatude since the Switzer glory days.
Will Coach Bob Stoops keep his job?
Are there other, undiscovered felons on the team, too?
"From the first Nike commercial, they sold
us on the idea that
Tiger Woods was Jackie Robinson with golf clubs. Now it turns out
that he doesn't have an opinion unless he's getting paid for it."

Subject: Poll numbers on the slide - START A WAR...
You know what is coming next. When the poll numbers
slide, start a war.
Look out Iraq. It won't be long now before Bush starts beating the WAR DRUMS.
He may be Dumb as Hell, but he knows America loves a good war.
You know his Daddy is advising him. Also Daddy left the job unfinished.
And is advising Monkey Boy to go forward and kick ass. You know he is telling him.
"Your poll numbers will go up and what's a few 100 thousand lives on both sides."
Am I in trouble?
I'm not a one-termer
like my loser daddy...
9/11 Happen" Says Gulf War Veteran
saw it on bushoccupation.com
A brave Air Force veteran is making his stand as an American, but the Bush administration is
trying to silence him. As Congress begins its clandestine investigation into the catastrophe of 9/11,
few voices dare to speak truth to power. This is no “conspiracy theory” or obscure source.
The AP, CNN, the New York Times and others
“An Air Force colonel has been suspended for writing a letter in which he called
President Bush 'a joke' and accused him of allowing the Sept. 11 attacks.”
Livemore, the brains behind bartcop.com
and the architect
of the wildly successful Juliefest2002-DC was no fan of flying before 9-11.
She currently lives on the East Coast, which means she has quite a drive to Vegas.
I told her a fifth of cheap vodka would work as a courage enhancer,
but she's not having
any of that, so she's going to get her kicks on Route 66, America's Mother Road.
Why do I bring this up?
I've heard mummurs, maybe you have, too, that is just for the elite.
This may surprise you, but I have an answer to that.
If you say is only for the elite, because we all can't afford to go,
couldn't one logically extrapolate from that, that bartcop.com is an "elitist web site,"
because not everyone can afford a personal computer in their home?
So if there shouldn't be a
maybe there shouldn't be a bartcop.com
See how crazy that sounds?
Sure, if you have kids or can't get time off work, that's understandable.
(Suggestion: Throw the kids in the car, but leave them at Kingman Day Care
Vegas is no place for small children - they might be forever corrupted.)
but if one really wanted to go to Vegas, one could probably find a way.
Example: (all calculations are rough)
Four people get into a car in St Louis - that's 1600 miles one way.
Getting 20 MPG, that's 160 gallons round trip, with each gallon costing $1.50,
it comes out to $40 per person for the most memorable trip/week you ever had.
The fresh air - the majestic mountains!
When you get to Vegas, Lady Luck weekend rooms are $55,
or $85 for 4 people.
So - a ticket is $75, gas is $40 and hotel is $25 per person per night.
You sleep at Tucumcari, NM (stay at the Blue Swallow) each way for $35 divided by 4.
The way I figure it, a five-hotel, three night stay in Vegas
comes to about
Check my math, because I'm Catholic, but are you sure you can't afford to go?
Chicago, Cleveland and Nantucket would cost a little more,
but Denver, Dallas and Portland would cost a little less.
You will never forget this weekend in Fabulous Las Vegas!
For those considering going to
there is a posting board to share information,
car pooling, room sharing etc at The BartCop Forum.

Subject: Enjoy this quote from Salon
I know you hate Salon, but this quote from
was just a little to choice not to pass onto you:
> It is true that the stock market is not the economy. It is also obvious
> of the corporate malfeasance that is currently being laid bare before a disgusted
> public began occurring long before Bush became president. But such caveats are
> becoming less and less helpful to the current administration, as each new revelation
> of accounting fraud and each new slump in the Dow slam into their predecessors
> like so many freight cars piling up against a suddenly stalled locomotive.
> At some point, one has to stop blaming the train wreck on the previous conductor.
Actually, I don't hate Salon.
They employ one of the web's best writers, smoking Joe Conason, and some other good writers,
and I'll admit it's possible they were hook-winked by the devious and clumsy liar Jennifer Liberto.
Hi, I'm Jennifer Liberto and
I'll do anything for a story...
True, I was disappointed in David Talbot's reply to my too-blistering-to-print-here
If I was Talbot and received the letter I sent, I think my first reaction would be,
"About what can this crazy man be so upset? We plugged his struggling,
underdog web page, and he repays us with an e-mail like this?"
I think a real journalist would've wondered what the story behind
the outrage was
but Talbot chose to call me a "mysogynist" and suggested I "clean up my act."
(Good work, Dave.) so The BartCop Hex had to be thrown at them.
I wonder what Dave will do when they fold?
Maybe Wendy's is hiring?
US intends to block a UN vote on a plan
to enforce an international convention on torture
US qualms about the convention are said to focus on language which could be
interpreted as allowing independent observers to visit US prisons and terrorism
suspects being held by the US at its naval base at Guantanamo Bay.
What is America so afraid of?
Why can't the B.F.E.E. allow neutral observers?
Iraq did, when they held our pilots in the Gulf War.
North Vietnam did when they were holding John McCain.
Why kinds of torture are those religious crazies going thru?
George Bush doesn't have as much honor as Iraq or North Vietnam?
What's up with that? America is being raped - hook, line and sphincter.
I can arrange a personal tour
of Gitmo for you, Funnyboy.
Just keep it up - you'll get a
good look at those conditions...
Time to 'Earn This'
by Robert Parry August 9, 2001
While individuals have shown spunk in creating aggressive new outlets, such as
smirkingchimp.com and mediawhoresonline.com, the Web sites remain a proverbial
drop in the bucket when compared to the size and sophistication of the conservative effort.
Wealthy liberals mostly have stayed on the
sidelines. After the election, Barbra Streisand
issued a manifesto calling for a Democratic-oriented TV outlet to counter the conservative media.
That sounds like BartCop TV.
Anyone know Streisand's phone number or e-mail?
If she'd agree to fund BartCop TV, I'd let her sing at BartFest
Subject: Book right away - fares are down
I'm flying R/T St. Louis to Las Vegas Friday for a mere $109.00!
Using Worry Free Vacations Air Only package
and booked the Tropicana
for $79 Fri-Sat and $45 Sun-Mon. These air only vacation packages are great!
Kinda cramped confines for the 3 hour flight,
but at $109...who cares!
I forgot to mention worryfreevacations.com
They fly selected cities to Las Vegas and Cancun. If you
like to gamble on airfares,
you might get this $109 round trip fare, but you won't get it until the Thursday before the gig.
I just went there and saw this:
"Each week we feature $49 airfare with a hotel purchase from at least one of our origin cities."
This week, they're doing $49 from Detroit and St Louis.
Check their website, then check it again for last-minute deals
as the date gets closer.
If they have room on the plane, they let you fly extra-cheap.

It's good stuff.
My Tithe Will Go Elsewhere
As a lifelong Catholic, I was shocked, then
hurt and finally disgusted
to learn that we parishioners who dutifully drop coins and bills into the
collection basket every Sunday were basically enabling pedophiles to
continue to shatter young lives (Sacrament of Lies, April 17).
If the Pope wishes to get a part-time job
to fund damage suits and counseling
for victims and priests, then fine, but until that happens, I shall hand over my
hard-earned 10 percent to worthy causes instead of potentially criminal activities.
Subject: How do we know when you are serious?
You ripped on fruitbat for not understanding your
joke with the Pink Floyd lyrics.
How is anyone supposed to know when you are joking?
Is it only when you make threats of violence and assasination?
So fruitbat didn't get the joke. You must understand,
anyone who is a burnout loser
from the 70's or hangs out within the BartCop circle would know that it so,
but not the rest of us who have jobs.
I've been waiting years for somebody to ask that question.
If you can't tell the jokes from the real stuff, you're not paying attention.
If you read, "Ashcroft called for the lynching
of black men in Alabama,"
you have to decide if he really did that or if it's a BartCop gag.
(In that case, he really did.)
If you read something on MWO or Buzzflash, you know
but on this site, you have to do the work yourself - you have to think about it.
Do you have trouble thinking about things?
Besides, Pink Floyd's The Wall is hardly some obscure album.
Maybe next time I should quote John Denver lyrics so you'd recognize it?

Vegas Trip Report
(saw it on the alt.vacations.las-vegas newsgroup)
I personally love staying at the Rio since I have such good access to I-15.
I can get to other strip properties or downtown faster than most people staying on the strip.
Rooms continue to be in the top 3 in Vegas, behind only the Venetian and some Bellagio rooms.
Very large, with in room safes and refrigerators.

The reports we see in the american papers
are, in a word, pathetic.
Relying upon them, one might think that Operation Anaconda was
a resounding success and that lasting peace in Afghanistan is just a
few weeks away; The british press tells us that Anaconda was a
complete and utter goat-fuck; discounting their grumpiness over
having squandered the empire, we may reasonably conclude that
pacification works as well in south-west Asia as well as it did in
south-east Asia forty years ago.
Which is to ignore all the other idiocies
of the Smirking Chimp,
but there are only so many hours in one day.
We may be forced to endure 6 more years of never-elected,
so I think it's important to remember to have a good time.
Me? I have a good time every day, but I always have a great time in Vegas.
