Here is a picture of protesters in Oregon
this weekend. Notice some of the older people
in the protest (like the old lady in the red hat and others in the picture).
For reference, I am also including
the link to the article where the picture came from.
They said that "over 5,000 people protested in Portland, Oregon" Saturday (October 5).

Poll: Bush Should Wait on Iraq
A solid majority of Americans believe Bush should give U.N. weapons inspectors
time to act and should wait for support from allies before invading Iraq, a new poll says.
The CBS-New York Times poll out Sunday also
found a growing number of people
want Bush to get congressional approval before going to war, with many saying Congress
has not asked enough questions about Bush's policy toward Iraq.
That Iraqi oil belongs to me!

Retreat, No Surrender
by William Rivers Pitt
George W. Bush is coming to Boston on October 4th to hobnob with Mitt Romney, and to stand
for pictures with devotees of the GOP who were willing to cough up $5,000 for the privilege of a
photo-op with The Great Man. The love-in would be happening at the Seaport Hotel, out on the
piers along the harbor. Bring signs, bring flyers, bring your best shouting shoes, and meet on the bridge.
We march on the hotel before noon. The purpose of the protest: To try and stop this coming war in Iraq.
Did you know...?
If you had $117,000 in your IRA the day Scalia
stole our votes,
you only have about $75,000 left, if your account is average
That missing $42,000?
Bush f-ing stole that from you and he stole it from me.
Bush stole roughly $40,000 from every family in the
nation, and he's just getting started.
Doesn't anybody else worry about that?
Press Shows Caste Superiority
by Gene Lyons
Now me, I had two reactions to Junior's remarks. First, anger. There are laws
against saying exactly what I actually thought, but suffice it to say I'd have loved
to see somebody smack his smirking face with a banana cream pie. Second, grim satisfaction.
Bush had finally let his arrogant condescension show in the plainest possible way.
If Democrats had any sense, they'd make him pay.
Mr. Lyons! That's wrong!
Mr Rove wouldn't like it if we fought back.
"This is a man who continues to murder his
own people, a man who has gassed -- used gas
on his own citizens, a man who has used chemical weapons on his neighbors, a man who has
invaded two countries, a man which hates -- who hates America, a man who loves to link up
with al Qaeda, a man who is a true threat to America, to Israel, to anybody in the neighborhood."
-- Too stupid to be president, Arizona, Sep. 28, 2002
What a quote!
Here is a man who put to death hundreds of his own people
He used a needle instead of gas, but that distinction means little to the families of his victims.
When he's done with Iraq, Bush will have invaded two countries.
He governs like he hates Americans, stealing $40,000 from every American family.
He and his father have both linked up with Al Qaeda, even arming them.
He is the biggest threat to America in our lifetime.
He's the biggest threat to every country on Earth.
No wonder Bush opposes a World Court.
The Rams lost again, that's bad.

Protest in Houston
I see where Bad Vlad Putin has pulled a
page from Dim Bastard's book.
Those pesky Chechnyan rebels have now become "miliant Islamic fundamentalists."
That way, Putin can secretly wipe them out without having to explain himself.

And you know Bush made Putin a deal - "I
won't bother you about Chechnya
if you back my takeover of the Iraqi oil fields."
Co. Accuses Rep. Dick Armey
Armey the foul-mouthed Dick does it again
The parent company of The Dallas Morning Whore accused Dick Armey of trying
to retaliate against the newspaper for its coverage of his son's failed congressional bid.
The newspaper said the foul-mouthed Dick
tried to have language inserted into military
appropriations bill to force Belo Corp. to divest itself of one of its three Dallas media properties.
Janice Soprano is the queen of weird sex.
The last time we saw her having sex, mob
boss Richie Aprile was taking her from behind
and he was "playfully" holding a gun to her head. Janice told Carmela about it, and when
Carmela gasped in shock, Janice said, "Don't worry, he usually takes the clip out."
Hey, Janice, guess what? Revolvers
don't have clips.
OK, so Janice later murdered Richie for teasing her.
Then last week, (not last night) we see
Janice and her new boyfriend, mob boss Ralphie Pants in bed,
and Janice is behind him this time - working a vibrator in and out of Ralphie while telling him what a disgusting
slut and whore he is."How much money did you bring home for me, you cheap ho?"
Ralphie was getting off on it, and then his phone rings - to the tune of "Rocky."
It may have been the funniest moment in Soprano history

threatens veto over pension benefit
AWOL bastard dumps on retired military heroes
Alarmed by the cost of expanding military
entitlement programs, Bush has threatened
to veto the entire $355 billion defense authorization bill for the new fiscal year if House
and Senate conferees do not eliminate new pension benefits for disabled military
retirees that could cost $18.5 billion to $58 billion over the next decade.
The Pentagon now spends more than $35 billion
a year on military pension and health-care
entitlements that are among the most generous in the country for public or private-sector employees.
The pension provision at issue would for
the first time allow military retirees to collect retirement
benefits from the Pentagon and disability benefits from the Veterans Administration at the same time.
Conferees could decide the issue this week.
Remember - at every campaign stop, Bush promised veterans, "Help
is on the way."
But then, he promised he'd get bin Laden, too.
He also took an oath, years ago, to serve his country - then went AWOL.
Yet the military loves this rich little snot-nosed, back-stabbing, gone-AWOL liar.
They would die for him, while he's busy emptying out the Treasury.

Hold 'Em With A Stacked Deck
by Harley Sorensen
I'd like to play poker with George W. Bush.
I'd get rich.
Any poker player worth his salt knows you always
call when the other guy is bluffing.
If he's bluffing, and you're holding any cards at all, you've got him beat. You can't lose.
So how does George W. Bush respond to a
bluff? He throws in his cards!
Pretty dumb, eh? .
The Rio wasn't my friend last weekend.
Everyone I knew at The Rio was already in their rooms relaxing,
but they couldn't get
my room-with-a-view-of-the-Rio-garage ready until 4 PM, and it was 4:30 before we
got our luggage delivered and we had a mass tequila tasting to host before 6 PM.
Larry the Tooth offered to drive us to the Hard Rock, but we were
so late he had to go
without us to meet his friend, so we met up with Isaac Peterson, (MN) Rude^Boyee (MN)
and The Colemeister (AR) and the five of us got a ride from a crusty cabbie.
By the time we got to the Hard Rock, the Pink Taco was already
full and there were
Bartcoppers (we still need a better name for that group) scattered everywhere.
One of the best things that happened all week was meeting the
At the last second, Christian couldn't come, and Pat-LV stepped up and ran with the ball.
She brought name tags and pens and stuff so we could find and identify each other.
(Before I forget, she was also a Koresh-send the next night, putting up signs and getting
more name tags together and helping to check people and dollar amounts at the door.
She really saved the weekend - thank you Pat!!)
So we tanked up pretty good at the Pink Taco. Larry and I had
the good sense to split
a $30 shot of Herradura Selecion Suprema, which we both agreed wasn't as tasty as
The Miracle at Canaan, and at the Pink Taco, Canaan only costs $6 a shot.
You gotta love a place that sells luxury tequila that cheap.
So after 90 minutes of appetizers and drinks, we boarded the bus.
I knew something was wrong right away because we couldn't find Isaac.
This must be an old picture of him, because he looked very different in Vegas.
I'm sure he'll be embarrassed as hell when he reads this, but Isaac has this smooth,
James Bond thing going. He was dressed to kill, and his voice was laid back and soothing.
If I was gay, I would've been following him around all weekend. You ladies who missed
meeting him should be kicking yourselves. He's one smooth dude.
So - we can't find Isaac, and we couldn't
leave without him, so I left the packed bus
and headed back into the casino. I looked and looked and couldn't find him, so I headed
back towards the bus and they told me Isaac had been found.
Now, you want to know how smooth he is?
He was the last guy to leave the long, slender
table that held the most Bartcoppers, and the Pink Taco put the big bag on him.
As he was leaving, they said, "Sir, you owe us $250 on your table's bill."
Isaac quietly paid them.
If that'd been me, I would've screamed and
complained and set my hair on fire,
but Isaac just quietly paid them and we had to drag the story out of him, later.
If you were at the long, slender table and think you might've not paid your fair share,
consider sending something to Isaac or to me and I'll forward it to him. Also, it's possible the
waitress had the best night of her young career. She double-billed us an extra $70 at our small table.
I pointed out to her that we'd already paid cash for that $30 Herradura shot and she billed us for it again,
so I only lost $45 on her bill-padding, but Isaac got the full screwing from the Pink Taco.
Someone suggested their might have been
a misunderstanding - that people might've ordered
fajitas and tequila, thinking they were part of the $58 weekend package of food and drink.
I thought Isaac was a smooth dude before
he took the $250 hit.
Hats off to Isaac.
The bus ride was fun, (especially with chat's "Palmer" handing
me his flask of Gran Centenario Anejo.
That's some tasty stuff. I'll have to A-B it with some Canaan to give it a real test.
How can I do that, you ask? That wacky Palmer gifted me with a bottle to take home!
But the flaw in the plan was after everyone got loopy, nobody
looked out the windows.
There was such a multi-gaggle of conversation going on, we could've just stayed at
the Pink Taco and applied that bus expense towards the bill.
After the bus ride, we split up and prepared ourselves for the big party tomorrow.
...and nobody asked to see my shoes!

Crazy Vic strikes again
To welcome me back, he brought in another hueueueueeuge feast.
Mexican Chicken Casserole,

4 US Officials Describe Iraqi Involvement in OKC Bombing
A Pentagon civilian official has provided a formal affidavit stating that the Pentagon official
viewed a surveillance tape video showing a Ryder truck and its occupants moments before
it was used to bomb the Murrah Federal Building in OKC on April 19, 1995. The official
further states that the Pentagon official saw in the video a Middle Eastern man closely
resembling the Iraqi and McVeigh accomplice, Al Hussaini, exiting the Ryder truck when
it was parked in front of the Murrah Building.
