anti-bush stuff that E-Bay censors,

"The bear market that we're suffering right
now is probably one of the worst
I have ever gone through, and it's not a comfortable place to be..."

Why would a millionaire spend a million dollars to elect a pinhead?
Buying opportunities, that's why.
They had none under Clinton, because stocks always went up.
There is a SCATHING
rebuke of the Unelected Fraud on the front page

Full Sad Story - Must Read
"Why," she blurted out, "does everybody hate us?"
It's not just religious radicals and terrorists who resent the United States anymore. "Now, it's everyone,"
What happened to that wave of sympathy and
stockpile of global goodwill after Sept. 11?
"It was squandered. America dissipated the goodwill out of its arrogance and incompetence. "
Europeans have "come to view the United
States simply as a rogue colossus,
in many respects a bigger threat to their pacific ideals than Iraq or Iran."
"Why do people attack Americans? Because they have a big, big mouth and they mind everybody's business."
"Around the world, many see the United States
as arrogant, hypocritical, self-absorbed,
self-indulgent and contemptuous of others,"
The United States preaches democracy, human rights
and free enterprise — but doesn't practice them.
I would like to remind our European allies
that this insane criminal was NOT elected by the voters.
We didn't ask for him any more than the Cubans, the North Koreans or Iraqis asked for their illegal dictators.
He stole his way to power with the help of a crooked court and no resistance at all from the Democrats.
Bush's "fuck you" style of diplomacy is despised all around the world, and now, so are we.
Go to hell! My family needs to earn!
Oil is what's important, understand that?
We're gonna do what we 're gonna do.
If you don't like it, attack my military!
tack on budget is off
by Hillary Rodham Clinton
"After his being in office for just 18 months, more than $5 trillion of the projected surplus has vanished.
Despite a bipartisan commitment to protect the Social Security surplus, the administration's budget
proposes to spend much of the Trust Fund's surplus every year during the next decade. And despite
a bipartisan commitment to reduce our national debt, it is on track to be higher at the end of 2007 than
at the end of 2001. The country's economic condition demands more serious rethinking of our fiscal policy."
"Consumers' confidence is weakening. We see
it in their buying behavior.
We see it in them buying private-label products instead of branded products.
We see them buying things like hamburger instead of steak."
-- Larry Johnston, Bush toady and millionaire owner of Albertson's grocery stores

Summary Executions Of Some Designated As Terrorists
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In a surprise move
sure to raise outcries from foreign governments, civil liberties
groups and others, The White House today announced with little fanfare that effective immediately, certain
individuals whom President Bush or other high-level Administration members have designated as terrorists
are subject to summary execution by either Homeland Security operatives, U.S. intelligence operatives,
and in some cases by U.S. military personnel.
The presidential directive applies to both
U.S. and foreign citizens,
both within and outside the United States territory.
The White House gave notice of the new policy
in as quiet a way as possible, making the announcement
late Sunday evening from Crawford, Texas. The unprecedented move is thought certain to generate a
firestorm of protest from numerous quarters.
I took a lot of flack from readers when I told you this was going
Bush is insane - can this really be happening in today's America?
Anyone Bush wants dead is dead?
..and the Democrats are still asleep, or too afraid to speak.
Is there not anything that would get them to do their jobs?
But Bart, Bush is a great president!!
He's great with war, great with the economy,
great with installing confidence on Wall Street,
and he's the most honest oil man that ever lived.
your president, Bart!

They envy Gore, an ex-reporter, after all, because his accomplishments in life make them feel inferior.
Hence the astonishingly mendacious press attack on the Democratic candidate's character throughout
the 2000 campaign-Love Story, Inventing the Internet, Earth Tone Clothing, etc .--many of which
rolled straight off RNC press releases to the front page.
Subject: Attorney General Ashcroft
I got this from Buzzflash. What did the pink tutus
say when Asskiss was nominated?
"Incoming administrations deserve a smooth transition. We can't get the Bushies off to a bad start
by asking all those tough questions and challenging their nominees for cabinet posts. After all,
Clinton got all kinds of heat for his nominees and remember the trouble that caused?
We can't do the same thing to the other party. THAT WOULDN'T BE FAIR."
Wouldn't it be great to belong to an opposition
Instead, we get people like Russ Fiengold, considered 'progressive', voting to confirm Ashcroft.
Hey Russ, how you sleeping nights? Not well? I wonder why?
for Citizens: Ashcroft's Hellish Vision
Attorney general shows himself as a menace to liberty.
by Jonathan Turley, professor of constitutional law at George Washington University.
Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft's announced desire for camps for U.S. citizens
he deems to be "enemy combatants" has moved him from merely being a
political embarrassment to being a constitutional menace.
Ashcroft's plan, disclosed last week but
little publicized, would allow him
to order the indefinite incarceration of U.S. citizens and summarily strip them
of their constitutional rights and access to the courts by declaring them enemy combatants.
...and we're all going to sit here like sheep on Prozac?
If only we had an opposition party in the country, instead of a party of pink-tutu's doves.
Be nice, Bart, show some respect.
Bush and Ashcroft are our friends.
By the way, the "special guests" we're hoping to get at BartFest?
They are NOT wimps with pink tutus.
They are fighters!
"Looking back on it now, I think that it was
a mistake in our approach, yes."
--Cardinal Bernard Law, Boston, in newly released tapes of his June deposition
I don't enjoy saying this, but I believe Cardinal Law is lying.
"I didn't know."
"I forgot to check the records."
"I relied on the opinions of others."
"They were all innocent mistakes."
What crime is worse than child rape?
Why can't they stop their self-destruction?
These are men of God, they claim, and they don't want a "zero tolerance" rule against child rape?
How can you Catholics sit back and watch this?
Worse, are you still giving them money, so they can secretly pay off
the families of the raped so they can rape a different child tomorrow?
How can you live with this situation?
"One of the most beautiful prayers in the Catholic
church is the act of contrition,
when in confession we say, "bless me father for I have sinned." Cardinal Law today
said it's somebody else's fault. He's a disgrace. He should go."

proposed attacking Americans to promote war
by Carla Binion - Online Journal Contributing Editor
“An aircraft at Elgin AFB would be painted and numbered as an exact duplicate for a civil registered aircraft
belonging to a CIA proprietary organization in the Miami area. At a designated time the duplicate would be
substituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be loaded with the selected passengers, all boarded under
carefully prepared aliases. The actual registered aircraft would be converted to a drone [a remotely controlled
unmanned aircraft.] Take off times of the drone aircraft and the actual aircraft will be scheduled to allow
a rendezvous south of Florida.
Hmmmm, sounds like that Pentagon plane, doesn't it?
TV Show Lacking in Reality
by Joe Conason
The Waco forum was about as authentically significant for economic policy
as the President’s "ranch" in nearby Crawford is for his credentials as a cowhand.
George W. Bush has learned from experience
that if he emphasizes his Texas drawl,
slaps on his cowboy hat and talks as if he’d never set foot in Andover, Yale and Harvard
(let alone Kennebunkport and Greenwich), most people will buy the down-home shtick.

Subject: Talking the economy higher
I was watching Butch try to talk the economy higher
yesterday. He said the "fundamentals are strong".
How stupid do you have to be to say things like this when US Airlines declared bankruptcy the day before,
United is rumored to be on the verge of filing chapter 11, American Airlines cut 7,000 jobs, and IBM is
cutting more than 16,000 jobs? Who gets screwed when things like this? The people who actually work
for a living and can't understanding an asshole taking a month off from his joke of a job.
P.S. i am switching jobs and as soon as
i get my first paycheck next week
i am sending $25 to keep the lights on at the treehouse.
Consider it an installment. i wish i could afford more
but i am a teacher and a single dad.
I know you've been reading since forever.
"Among the adoring Cabinet officers and supportive
business executives invited to the president's
economic forum in Waco, Tex., there was a range of opinion: Some people thought Mr. Bush is
doing a magnificent job, while others insisted that he is doing an extremely magnificent job."

Enron got $500 Million from Bush, and they didn't pay any taxes, so they love him.
All the crooked oil companies love the man who's rolling back pollution standards.

"President Bush inherited the strongest economy
and he reversed all of Clinton's policies, and now the economy stinks.
You give him a Lamborghini, he throws it in reverse, and he's surprised it goes backwards."

Paul is so good, I wish he was on our team all the time...
One thing that you forgot to mention about Vegas attractions
is the fact that it is a short drive over the hills to Pahrump,

...which poses an interesting ethical question.
Since it's legal, is there anything wrong with a single man
enjoying himself with a young lady for a little while?
I'm sure the religio-fundies are clutching their hearts and scouring
for a reason, some reason, any reason to try and stop someone else from having fun.

BartFest2002 - Party of the Year
Make your own hotel reservations.
The dice have been rolled!
There is a misconception about the August 15 deadline.
That is NOT the last day you can buy tickets.
Tickets will be available until the night of the party.
The 15th, Thursday, is the day The
Rio wants to know if we're going high or low.
If we rent a room for 60, and 160 show up, we'll be all kinds of cramped.
If we rent the 160 room, and 60 show up, we lose a few thousand dollars.
At this point, it would help to know if you're a "maybe."
We could have a hundred "maybes" but I'd hate to find out 6 weeks
when it's too late to change the size of the venue.
Update: I did something last night.
I raised the stakes.
I doubled down.
I threw my best pitch.
I was contacted and told to expect an answer by tomorrow.
I doubt we'll know before we publish Thursday, (might run a "special
but we'll be in the MIRC chat room right after I call Christian, Larry and Pat RT.
If this works we're going to have the most exciting non-Clinton,
guests, I might add, chosen by you, the readers in the BartFest poll,
we will have not spent a lot of money, so we're going
to have a great time no matter what!
This is the biggest one-day gamble I've ever taken, and we're doing it in Las Vegas,
the most exciting city in the world!
...it's so exciting!!!
Also, East Coast is still leading the West Coast greater
than 3-2, we've gotten newcomers from Austin,
St. Louis and swear to Koresh RHODE ISLAND, but we DID have David L from Los Angeles sign up,
proving that not everybody in the state of California needs a lesson on how to party!
is all we have.
In Two days, all we be revealed.
...we are out on a limb, ...it's so exciting!!!

Subject: re: Wrong on House Dems and Clinton
You are absolutely right with regards to your
assessment that House Dems missed a historic
opportunity by ditching national health care and that it cost the Dems the upcoming election.
Of course, the problem was that they were worried
so much about that next election and the
pressure they were under from NFIB and other business lobbies, that they forgot about the
two-year window they had to fix a central wrong in our civil society. What a disappointment!
Then, you are rewarded for your observation by
a reader who uses the Democrats' unanimous
defense of Clinton after '94 as support of his argument. Well, minorities have no choice but to
hang tough - it is the actions of the party when in control that demonstrated their true colors.
Well, we read it in Ann Arbor - where the freshman
tryouts look like a Big 12 game.
