"While Bush was assiduously taking notes at Waco, Cheney didn't try very hard to suppress a yawn.
  He just doesn't enjoy vaudeville in the middle of the day. Who could take seriously a forum that
  produced an idea of having the robber barons band together and "self-police" their ranks?
  Bush was enthusiastic about it."

 Firefighters Vote to Boycott Backstabbing Bush

  Click  Here

 The International Association of Fire Fighters voted unanimously on Wednesday to boycott
 a national tribute to firefighters who died on Sept. 11, in an angry response to George Bush's
 rejection of a bill that included $340 million to fund fire departments.

"The president has merely been using firefighters and their families for one big photo opportunity.
  Don't lionize our fallen brothers in one breath, and then stab us in the back by eliminating funding.
  President Bush, you are either with us or against us. You can't have it both ways."

 Pardon me, but that son of a bitch...
 He's never worked a day in his rich life, and he blocks funding for these brave men?

 He can't help the firefighters because his oil buddies need another tax cut.

 FBI Admits No Evidence Ties 'Dirty Bomb' Suspect to al-Qaida

  Click  Here

 An American touted by Ashcroft as a significant terrorism figure with plans to detonate a radioactive bomb
 is probably a "small fish" with no ties to al-Qaida cell members in the United States, says the FBI.

 Their investigation has produced no evidence that Jose Padilla had begun preparations for an attack
 and little reason to believe he had any support from al-Qaida to direct such a plot, said one FBI official.

 Another lie from the war-without-end power-grabbers.

 Wait, didn't Ashcroft give Padilla some really evil-sounding Muslim name?
 Is it OK for us to call this guy "Padilla?"
 Or can we be arrested, tortured and snuffed out for doing that?

I've had about enough from you, Funnyboy.
You're about to find out what the new Amerika is all about.
One nation, one supreme leader, under God, with no dissent.

 I have a question:

 If Bush was surprised by 9-11,
 why did Jeb call out the Florida National Guard on 9-6?

 Restoring “Investor Confidence”
 They don’t call them Confidence Men for nothing
         by Bryan Zepp Jamieson

  Click  Here

 George W. Putsch, as part of his hilarious crackdown on corporate accounting crime
 (what used to be called “swindles” back before they became legitimate business tactics)
 ordered the CEOs to certify their quarterly reports.

 Normally, of course, the President wouldn’t dream of subjecting the CEOs to such a thing.
 After all, he is, in large measure, their creation. They wanted their own boy in the White House,
 and oddly enough, George was the best they could come up with.

 Dirty Dealings? Bush Is Shocked ... Shocked!
  His friends helped create corporate America's mess
           by Robert Scheer

  Click  Here

 Last week, speaking in Mississippi near the corporate headquarters of WorldCom,
 Bush consoled fired workers with his shopworn canard that the loss of their jobs was
 the result of "shady corporate practices" that deeply shocked him.

 This naivete, if not feigned, reflects an embarrassing stupidity about how he
 and his corporate buddies played the capitalism game during the last decade.

Go to Hell.
We'll decide what rights you've earned...

 I have a question:

  If Bush was surprised by 9-11,
  why did he & Cheney eat Cipro when
  there was no mention of anthrax that day?

 Subject: Heston & Gore

 Mr. Fake Name is right on this one.  Here's the quote:

"So as we set out this year to defeat the divisive forces that would take freedom away,
  I want to say those words again for everyone within the sound of my voice to hear and
  to heed, and especially for you, Mr. Gore:  From my cold dead hands!"

 Jerry K

 Jerry, here's how that went:

> Fake: Heston didn't say Clinton, he said Gore.

> Bart: One of us is crazy.

 He said Heston never used Clinton's name, just Gore's.
 This is a mistake on his part.
 It's tough to bet that Person X  *never*  said something,
 especially if the guy you're betting with saw it happen live.

 It's my best guess Heston also said that about Gore, and it's a better guess
 that Acts-like-Cruise said it at every NRA rally and the cameras caught it every year.

 That's why I said one of us was crazy.
 He's telling me that what I saw didn't happen.

 I have a question:

  If Bush was surprised by 9-11,
  why were our fighter jets told to "stand down?"

  And if they weren't told that,
  why didn't they scramble after those four hijacked jets?

 Subject: our faux pay raises

 I've been laughing (in a very sad way) at the numbers showing increases in wages.
 These numbers are proudly presented  when folks want to point to strength in the economy,
 but they are also used to help gage potential inflation.  But those numbers are frighteningly inaccurate.
 Despite pay raises, many workers (my husband & I included) are making less money than 3 years ago.

 Why?  Because the numbers don't include health insurance premiums.

 This year, our health insurance premiums went up 31%!!!!!  We also have a family member
 who just turned 50 which greatly escalated his premium (and that was before the 31% hike).
 Our take home pay is now lower than it was 3 years ago.  (In our business, employees pay
 25% of our health insurance premiums.) I need a poster, "Health over Hussein."


 Anne, I'm with you
 My health insurance was $106, then $160, then $240,
 now it's $300 a month and they haven't paid a claim in years
 Remember when HC costs went down when Clinton threatened them?
 When they saw Moneybags Bush coming, they knew they could Enron us to death
 and the Unelected Fraud would sit back and smile - he's got his.

 Michael Moore: Just an example of what happened today. Here’s a quote from Bush
 down at the economic conference there. He said, “The government accounting system
 is pretty kind of hard to explain. I’ve been there 18 months trying to figure it out.”
 And then everybody laughed.
 You know, that’s the kind of clown we’ve got in the White House right now. And people see this.
 And they watch all of his Republican rich buddies there. All these people, like Schwab, who contributed
 $900,000 to his campaign and to the Republicans.

 They’re all sitting there laughing at this, while they’re out here wondering, is my pension going to be there?
 How am I going to pay the doctors bills?  Why do my kids have to work at McDonald’s so we have a
 three-income household to pay the bills? You know, and they’re sitting down there in Waco laughing at this?

 I’m telling you, there’s going to be hell to pay come November. And the people who are going to lose seats
 are the Republicans, as a result of Bush and their policies, and this charade down in Waco today.


 But Mike, you worked so hard to elect George W Bush - why are you turning on him now?
 Nader is planning to screw Democrats in November - he's not targeting the people you speak of.
 You and Donahue and Nader are not only proud of electing Bush - you're giving us your
 personal guarantee that you're going to do the same thing this election and in 2004.

 What the hell's wrong with you, Mike?
 A thousand times you told us that Bush & Gore were twins, but now you don't like Bush?
 How many seats will the Greens pick up in Novermber, two? Three?
 Way to make a change, Mike.
 The Democrats gave us 22 million jobs in the ninties,
 the greedy-ass Republicans have lost almost 2 million jobs,
 but you sit there with your phony photo-op in front of the Buick plant
 whining because people don't have jobs?

 Buy a mirror, Mike.
 You're the problem.

 We could've extended the Clinton miracle four more years, but your ego got real big
 and you found an anti-jobs, anti-Democrat niche and made a looooooooot of money.
 Those people in Flint should be kicking your ass.
 Transcript  (This show also featured Jean Charles Brisard, author of the French "Bush Knew" book.)

Subject: the argument against marijuana

"There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the U.S., and most are Negroes,
  Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result
  from marijuana use. This marijuana can cause white women to seek sexual relations
  with Negroes, entertainers and any others... The primary reason to outlaw marijuana
  is its effect on the degenerate races."
---Excerpt from the testimony of Harry J. Anslinger, director at the Federal Bureau
     of Narcotics, before the U.S. Senate in 1937.

 (I never said it was a good argument.. lol..
  Basically, the bastards outlawed it on a racist basis, at least partially!)


 ha ha
 I love that part about causing white women to seek sex with negroes and entertainers.

 "It's such an evil drug..."

  I have a question:

 What's that Bush boy going to do after we attack Iraq and he can't find Saddam?
 I'll tell you - his bought-and-paid-for good puppy press will bombard us with fake stories
 again and again and again about how we're "closing in" and "on the brink" of finding him.

 If the Democrats had this good puppy press, we'd all have affordable health insurance,
 we'd still have the WTC and the stock market would be at 14,000 by now.

 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.
 At this point, it would help to know if you're a "maybe."

 We heard from a whole bunch of people since yesterday.
 Some who can't make it sent a small gratuity to help defray expenses - thanks for that!
 I heard from Oklahoma Bob (from the Julie video) - he's coming. Forum manager Genslab is coming,
 We got two from Chicago and - what's this...? ...Sophia from Irvine, CA says all Californians are NOT
 party wimps, and she's coming with a friend and Tommy Mack from Los Angeles says he's coming,
 and he's bringing Krista and Dan!   Woo Hoo!   Californians!

 Then there's this:

 Subject: Bartfest Las Vegas
 I am totally interested in attending the festivities in Las Vegas on Sept. 28.  I do not want to stay
 at an expensive hotel.   Please send me info on other accomodations.  I will be sending $75 soon.
 Any info on this will be appreciated.  I will be coming in from Grand Junction, Colo.  Thank you

 Dan, I understand.
 The only reason we plan to stay at The Rio is because Mrs. BartCop must be made happy.
 She likes those hueueueuge properties where the minimum bets are $10 to $25.
 I'm not great at BJ (that's blackjack) but at $25 a pop, one can lose $100 a minute.
 There are tons of places that are inexpensive.
 Arizons Charlies, Motel 6 (right next to the MGM) Lady Luck, Binion's Horseshot, 4 Queens,
 the Stratosphere, The Aztec, Palace Station (5) The Sahara, The Riviera. The Stardust, the Frontier...

 The Tropicana and San Remo are right in the heart of The Strip - consider them. There are dozens more,
 but generally, downtown is the place. Lady Luck is $55 on Friday & Saturday and $29 during the week.
 See you there!

 Update:  Today is the day we should know something.

  This is the biggest gamble I've taken since I debated The Bird in the chat room (cough)
  ...and we're doing it in Las Vegas,  the most exciting city in the world!

  ha ha

  ...it's so exciting!!!

 Also, East Coast is still leading the West Coast greater than 3-2.
 Did Enron hit you guys that hard?

 ...we are out on a limb, ...but it's so exciting!!!
 (Oh, God, please don't let me lose my ass on this!)

 Reminder: This is a BartFest, Julie's not able to be there.
 Lately, two people have asked, so I wanted to make that clear.

 September 28th -  tickets on sale!
