 VCR Alert - Wild Off,  where Brooke Burke (live from Vegas!) hands her crown to a lesser on E!


"Lots of dead people. Lots of chaos. Being shot at from
  lots of different directions at the same time."
   -- General Peter Pace, Vietnam veteran, describing war

 Cheney’s brief for war:
 a mass of lies and historical falsifications

 Click  Here

 Cheney resorts to a rhetorical trick, repeating the phrase “there is no doubt,”
 to obscure the fact that he is making bald assertions without any factual substantiation.
 What is beyond doubt is that there is no proof of these charges—at least, none that
 has been presented by the US government.

 Question: Why can't we get any allies to agree with Cheney's "proof?"

 What to Do About the Media Mess
    an editorial from consortiumnews.com

  Click  Here

 The American people get a steady diet of the Bush administration's political message.
 So why is there so little TV time for Al Gore -- who got the most votes in Election 2000
 -- and other Democratic presidential contenders to make their case to the public?

 Yet, the man who got more votes in Election 2000, Al Gore, rarely gets to make his case directly
 to the American people. Indeed, most of what the public hears about Gore’s speeches is filtered
 through the hostility and ridicule of cable-news TV commentators and other pundits.

 The answer is simple - the TV whores are being paid to lie.
 They tell whatever lies will make their corporate masters more money.

The moronic chimp isn't qualified
to be a greeter at Wal-Mart.

 Bush by the Numbers, as Told by a Diligent Scorekeeper

  Click  Here

 The statistics Knoller assembles produce many revealing portraits of the Bush presidency:

 Bush has spent a whopping total of 250 days of his presidency at Camp David (123 days),
 Kennebunkport (12) and his Texas ranch (115). That means Bush has spent 42 percent
 of his term so far at one of his three leisure destinations.

 The lazy bastard stole a job he's not even willing to show up for.
 Oh, God, what did we do to anger you so much?


"America thinks it must control the world.
  America thinks if it controls the oil of the
  Middle East then it will control the world."
    -- Saddam

 No, Saddam, that's just the Bush Family Evil Empire.

 Library Workers Say, "No Spying in Libraries!"

  Click  Here

 The Progressive Librarians Guild (PLG) has released a statement registering its opposition
 to Terrorism and Information Prevention Systems (TIPS), a proposed  federal program
 that would encourage Americans to spy on their neighbors, clients, and co-workers.

"Cross me, will you?
 When Halliburton's done with my
 new secret torture complex we'll have
 a special section for smart-ass Al Qaeda librarians.
 When my boys stick that cattle prod where the sun
 don't shine, we're going to "shush" you librarians.
 I'll teach you to question Homeland Security!"

 Father insists Mohammed Atta is still alive 

  Click  Here

 The father of Mohammed Atta, the alleged ringleader of the September 11 attacks,
 said in an interview published yesterday that his son was still alive.

 "He is hiding in a secret place so as not to be murdered by the US!
  My son called me the day after the attacks on September 12 at around midday.
  We spoke for two minutes about this and that."

 You won't see this story in any American newspapers because it doesn't fit the plans
 King George the Lyin' Hearted has made for building his Afghan pipeline and stealing Iraq's oil.
 We're being led into a senseless war by an oil-greedy thief.
 Would you sacrifice your son or daughter to make the B.F.E.E. even richer?

 Subject: September 11 - the passenger lists

   Click  Here

 ...the BBC is reporting that the transcript of a phone call made by Flight Attendant Madeline
 Amy Sweeney to Boston air traffic controls shows that the flight attendant gave the seat numbers
 occupied by the hijackers, seat numbers which were NOT the seats of the men the FBI claimed
 were responsible for the hijacking!

 Yes, not a single name on the US hijacker list was on the official plane lists.
 I believe that whatreallyhappened.com keeps a link to the passenger lists.

 Not only that but SEVEN of the NINETEEN turned up somewhere else.
 The US ambassador to Morocco had to apologize publicly to one.

 Again a thorough search of whatreallyhappened.com will turn up this information.


 Meanwhile, the media and the Democrats sit back and watch the fraud.
 Oh, sure, if it was Clinton's zipper, it would be front page news.
 But it's only 3,000 dead in New York, so the media closes their eyes
 and the Democrats cower in fear, begging "Please, Mr. Rove, don't hurt us!".

 Chickenhawks Crow for War
  Of course, this is NOT from an American newspaper

  Click  Here

"We are being dragged toward war with Iraq by such chickenhawks. The loudest voices
 demanding war are those of men who once upon a time quietly skipped out on the fun in Vietnam...

 The poster boy for draft-dodging, to hear the media tell it, has long been Bill Clinton. But Clinton
 also organized anti-war protests in the late 1960s, and years later, while running for office,
 was thoroughly grilled by the media and the public for his Vietnam-era conduct.

 By contrast, the chickenhawks weaseled out of Vietnam while loudly proclaiming their support for it;
 they've never once been called to account for doing so; and now, they want to send a new generation
 of Americans into a Middle Eastern ground war."

 The double-standard is loud and clear.
 If Clinton smoked pot, he's a bad man.
 If Bush was caught with a lot of cocaine, it's all in the past.
 Clinton tried to stop a war, because he wanted fewer names on the Vietnam Memorial.
 Bush loved that war, but was "unable" to get over there and help fight.

 Clinton had contributors spend the night - Crime of the Century.
 Bush does it, reporters never ask any questions about it.

 The good puppy press loves their unelected president.

"Should Republicans maintain or expand their 12-seat majority in the House and reverse
 the Democrats' one-seat advantage in the Senate, Bush can tap into fresh support for the
 unrealized parts of his agenda, including new tax cuts, partial privatization of Social Security,
 school vouchers and federal support for religious groups' social programs."
      --Ken Fireman, 2002 Election Is Key for Bush, newsday.com

 Let's Be Open About Our Detainees
    by Helen Thomas

"The appellate court said, "It is the president who wields delicate, plenary and exclusive power . . .
  as the sole organ of the federal government in the field of international relations -- a power which
  does not require as a basis for its exercise an act of Congress."

 That's a powerful conclusion giving the administration free rein in such cases. It's one more example
 of how some courts as well as Congress and many U.S. allies have bent over backward to accommodate
 Bush in his war on terrorism. But democracy would be better served if America shows that even the
 enemy can get a fair shake in its legal system."

 Ever since we've known Bush, he'd rather take a life than not.  Dim Son holds the western hemisphere
 record for most state-sanctioned killings. Even during the debates, he giggled when talking about executing
 black men who didn't have adequate legal representation at their trials. And when the debate was over,
 the pundits fell all over themse;ves to say how "presidential" the iggling fool was.

 Plus, he never bothered to read the Parole Board reports, always opting for a staffer to "just tell me the highlights." 
 Of course, to keep his job, the staffer would always say, "He looks guilty, Sir."
 Bush would always rather kill than whatever the alternative.

 He's such a good Christian.

 Was Hitler Dubya's grandpappy?

 I saw a report on the web that Adolph Hitler once "dated" Prescott Bush's wife.
 Unconfirmed reports say George Herbert Herbert Bush might actually be Hitler's son.

 Of course, since we don't print unfounded rumors on  bartcop.com,
 this report will not be published until we can nail down the definitive truth.

"Wrapping myself in the flag and blindly following the lead of a man who has never served
  into the morass of an endless war is not my way of loving and serving my country."
    -- Korean War veteran Wilson Powell, National Administrator of  Veterans For Peace,
        at their convention in Duluth, August 15-18, 2002

 That crazy Vic I work with?

 He might be an illogical, senile Republican racist, but damn, he can cook.
 He brought lunch today - three-cheese chicken on top of sausage mostachioli (sp?)
 (served in a 8 x 12 x 4 corningware cooking container, it was so big)
 topped with Canadian bacon, chased with real Eli's Chicago Cheesecake.

 Eating where I work is like eating at a Vegas casino buffet.

 I asked him how he does it and he answered,
 "An Italian who can't cook is like a nigger who can't dance."

 He's such a racist pig, but he cooks better than Mom.

 Bush runs out of credit

   Click  Here

 The Democrats, of course, are terrified that their patriotism will be impugned; that some nasty
 old rightwinger like Bill O'Reilly of Fox News will say horrid things about them. Someone needs
 to tell the American people the truth: that whether or not the Iraq policy is right, the government's
 methods of making its case have been staggeringly inept. Bush says he will "consult". But he is so
 deeply committed rhetorically that he can only pull back from here with extreme loss of face.
 If Bush is faced with a choice between starting an unnecessary war and looking an indecisive prat,
 we can guess which way Bush will jump."

  Sure, Bush will always choose the option with more death.
  It's been his modus operandi for a decade.

 Clearing up the election that won't die

  Click  Here

 "Q: Did Florida officials faithfully execute the state's election laws?
  A: No. The New York Times and The Washington Post discovered evidence that Florida's governor,
 secretary of state, and speaker of the House, all Republicans with close ties to George W. Bush, used
 their offices to manipulate the election controversy and secure Bush's victory. During the controversy,
 they collaborated either directly or through intermediaries with the legal and political advisers of George
 W. Bush to: (1) put pressure on the state's top law firms not to work for Gore; (2) bend the rules on
 absentee ballots to allow improperly marked absentee ballots to be counted; (3) block, stall or discredit
 manual recounts; and (4) create fears of a constitutional crisis so that the U.S. Supreme Court would intervene."

 You mean that lazy bastard stole his way into power?
 I'm shocked!


 "Any veteran has more moral authority than the vice president of this country.
   I'm not dying for oil and neither is my kid."
    --Barry Hanson, a veteran of Vietnam, president of Veterans for Peace

 It's up to you not to heed the call-up
'N' you must not act the way you were brought up
Who knows the reasons why you have grown up?
Who knows the plans or why they were drawn up?

All the young people down the ages
They gladly marched off to die
Proud city fathers used to watch them
Tears in their eyes

There is a rose that I want to live for
Although, God knows, I may not have met her
There is a dance an' I should be with her
There is a town - unlike any other

It's up to you not to hear the call-up
'N' you must not act the way you were brought up

Hi BC,

I love your website.  You hit the republinazis hard, which is just what's needed.

I wish you could be on radio.  When people call up the radio stations which play Limbaugh,
all the idiot station managers claim "we like him to be controversial, it gets ratings".
So?  Why not have *you* on?  You're guaranteed to piss off ditto-monkeys
& other non-thinkers and generate high ratings.

I think BartCop Radio would rock!
It would be just like this page - mostly goofy crap with the occasional perfect bulls eye!

You said you knew about the "pornolize.com" website".
Are you also familiar with the (G-rated) website "Mr. T'inator"?
You might enjoy it.   Here's a link to what bartcop.com looks like through the "Mr. T'inator".

 I pity the fool that don't go to:


You had asked readers for what they'd like to see more of/less of.
Since I'm a female, I'd like to request equal time for pix of cute guys.  ;)

But, I have no pictures of 'cute guys.'

I really enjoy reading your opinions on news stories.
Don't ever stop swinging the hammer.

Thanks, I will continue.

Woo Hoo!



 One Saudi royal told the AP that the September 11 attacks were arranged by the Israelis
 and the American government. Quote, "Do you know how many Jews in the World Trade
 Center didn't go to work in that day?" he asked.  No, but I know of at least one Saudi idiot
 who hasn't gone to work a day in his life and ought to know better than to blame America
 or Israel for terrorist acts by Saudi citizens."
     --Paul Begala, Crossfire, 09/02/02

 I had to read that one twice.  Whenever I see the phrase
 "that idiot never worked a day in his life,"  I think about the stupid Bush boy.

Subject: Vegas Shennanigans
Dear B/C:

Did you hear the Vegas shennanigans on the Wisconsin/UNLV game?
Badgers were giving four and HEAVY action by Badger fans on the Badgers.
Lights go out in the fourth quarter with the Badgers leading 27-7 and 52 mins into the game.
First Explanation was car hit light pole, then found to be bogus.
Only the stadium lights went out.

Sports book rules are that games have to go 55 mins to be "official."
Lot of pissed of Badger fans/bettors.  Vegas strikes again.
Please investigate this when you are out there for the Badger State.



I'm not sure "Vegas strikes again," is accurate,
but if I hear anything I'll be sure and post the update.


 "Ralph Nader! I can never see you without feeling the same way,
  and which is grateful that you helped elect our president and defeat Al Gore.
  So thanks very much for that."
