If we don't fight back - who will?

"In the end, I think we are just tired of being
lied to. Tired of being talked down to,
of being bombarded with Second World War jingoism and scare stories and false
information and student essays dressed up as "intelligence". We are sick of being
insulted by little men, by Tony Blair and Jack Straw and the likes of George Bush
and his cabal of neo-conservative henchmen who have plotted for years to change
the map of the Middle East to their advantage."
--Robert Fisk, independent.co.uk
More than four million protesters took to the streets around the globe on Saturday to send
a message to President Bush (R-Warmonger) not to attack Iraq and to give peace a chance.
In a huge wave of demonstrations not seen
since the Vietnam War, anti-war marchers in more
than 600 towns and cities from Canberra to Cape Town and Chicago called on Bush to back off
his hawkish stance toward Iraq.
"This war is solely about oil. George Bush
has never given a damn about human rights,"
Mayor Ken Livingstone told reporters in London, where at least half a million people
marched in the biggest peace demonstration in British history.
"The 'collateral damage' of Bush's war drive
is mounting daily - the cohesion of NATO,
the chimera of a common EU foreign policy (and Blair's fantasy of being at the heart of
Europe) and the post-1945 structure of international law included. All of this seems
merely to be whipping the US political class into a still greater frenzy of bellicosity.
How long before France is officially designated a "rogue state" and Gerhard Schröder
becomes a card-carrying member of the 'axis of evil'?"

anyone remember Afghanistan?
by Joe Vecchio
The bush administration, budget laden with goodies for people who already
have more than any human needs, deserves, or can morally earn, has either
forgotten or deliberately left out millions of dollars in needed aid to help build
Afghanistan into a functioning society. In short, they have screwed the people
of Afghanistan just as they are screwing the people of the US, and as they're
planning on screwing the people of Iraq, and probably Iran shortly thereafter.
Keep up the great site!
Thanks for the lifeline for us expats!
Protest in London's Hyde Park
"Judging the Bush regime purely by the data,
only one conclusion is possible:
It's an abject failure. And, in all ways that the president has sworn under his
oath of office to perform, Bush himself is a disaster. F grades are nothing
new for him, of course, but they are new for the American people.
Shouldn't Bush be held back a grade,
perhaps downsized to Texas governor,
or sent back to the Air National Guard to complete the commitment he made
but never honored there?"

Subject: My daughter's best wishes
Just wanted to let you know that my daughter is a big fan (she can't wait to read the next issues).
We are all hoping BartCop Radio will come
soon, and eagerly awaiting the bashing some of these
nazis are going to get with the truth. Keep hammering on them Bart, it may be a long fight but it's
for the best cause I can think of. The BFEE is pure evil. Bush's own church won't support him!
Also, remember that over fifty percent of the Iraqi people are under fifteen years old.
What does that make the BFEE?
Hmmm... I'd say child molesters and baby killers.
Over a half-million in London

You almost had my money... :)
I was gonna give you some money so I did.
Then I saw Jeff's email and decided I'd give you some more.
Here ya go - some more donated in the name of Jeff the Green.
BCRadio - let's make it April instead of July.
James, good attitude!
I like April better than July, too :)
"Journalists are much tougher on Democratic
candidates then they are on GOP
candidates. If you don't admit that the media were much tougher on Al Gore than
they were on George Bush then you're just not an honest person. There was no contest,
if you look at the numbers of stories that were done and the lies that were told about
Gore's positions and the idiotic nature of the coverage ...these stories were blown up
and repeated thousands of times. And in the meantime, George Bush deserted his
National Guard post, he may or may not have been guilty of insider trading, he was
cleared by a friend of his daddy's, and none of these stories showed up."
--Eric Alterman, interview with Jesse Oxfeld, mediabistro.com
My good friend Eric was being polite, leaving out Bush's
abortion, his cocaine troubles,
his mystery number of arrests, his failure to work a day in his life, his drunken rages
at Al Hunt from the Whore Street Journal and don't forget his incredible stupidity,
his secret child and what about that perjury he committed in Funeralgate?
Thanks to Christine
Subject: Report on New
York anti-war march
Yes, you read that subject line right. We had a march. A helluva march.
I went to the anti-Bush rally at St. Patrick's. 300-500 people.
I went to the first U.N. anti-war rally (to see Mark Crispin Miller)
Today's rally BLEW that one away.
The police are admitting there were 500,000
The real estimates range from a million to 1,250,000.
To put that in perspective, Martin Luther King's famous March On Washington drew 250,000.
It was one of the most thrilling days of my life.
You DO NOT tell a New Yorker what he/she can or cannot do.
We "can't have a march"?
Yo, we marched up the middle of 3rd Ave. blocking traffic from 49th to about 59th
and then we marched down 2nd Ave. 1st Ave. was full from about 42nd to 72nd and
there was spillover on Lex.
It was one of the most exciting days of my life.
WBAI (99.5FM) broadcast the speeches/performances
for the million or so of us who couldn't
get near the stage. Probably the greatest contribution-drive move in history.
They had Daniel Ellsburg on and say they are making a documentary.
It would be worth it for Sharpton's speech alone. He was on fire.
They came out in Austin
Thanks to Jackie
"I respect the right of Democrats to filibuster
a nominee, but I differ on this particular nominee.
I think that at a time in this country when we're under orange alert and we have advice on
stockpiling water and buying duct tape and who in the heck knows what's going to happen in
North Korea and Iraq, that this is not a time that we should be filibustering a nominee who
has been called well qualified, and has received only outstanding job evaluations in every
category of his work in the solicitor general office's. I think if we don't like him, you have
the right to vote against him but I think we ought to go ahead and vote."

I live in Brooklyn, NY and I just got home
from dinner and on the way home, not a block
from my apartment was a busload, and I shit you not, a BUSLOAD of national guardsmen
armed with assault rifles. They didn’t look under siege or anything, but it was truly disturbing.
Are we a third world country now?
What has happened to the United States?
I’m going to the rally tomorrow and I’m glad
I’m taking my large, bald, physically capable boyfriend with me. Damn them.
As I walked by, I asked one of them, What’s
up? What’s going on?
And he said “We’re here to assist.”
And I said “Oh really? Posse Comitatus?
Anyone?” and I looked at the lot of them
1000 issues of BartCop! Congrats!

They just don't wanna work.
They didn't vote for me, anyway

A thousand thanks
Now I finally understand "a thousand points of light."
Keep swinging the mighty hammer.

Subject: Tony Blair's Pity Party
"I ask the marchers to understand this:
I do not seek unpopularity as a badge of honour,
But sometimes it is the price of leadership and the cost of conviction."
-- Tony Blair, Glasgow, February 15, 2003
Your unpopularity is the price you are paying to support a corrupt and illegal American
administration and its warmongering policies. As we like to say here in the States, wake up
and smell the coffee, brother. Drop the self-pity and self-righteousness, and find the courage
to just say no to Bush and this war nobody wants, or needs.

Thanks Dan, is there a story that goes with this?
Offers Turkey $6 Billion To Support Iraq War
That's small change to what the BFEE will make from this war
The United States is offering Turkey an economic aid package that includes about $6 billion
in grants and up to $20 billion in loan guarantees in a bid to secure Ankara's support for an
invasion of Iraq, sources familiar with the offer said on Saturday.
I felt so bad for Jennifer Garner last night.
It was the unfunniest SNL I've seen in a looong time.
It got so bad, I started watching the clock.
The first laugh came about 25 minutes into the show when Jimmy Fallon
and the always hysterical Horatio Sans did an Osama/Saddam skit.
...and the only thing that made it funny was Fallon kept going off-script
so they started f-ing around, trying to make each other laugh.
The Weekend Update, generally the high point of the show, was met with
awkward silence followed by outright groans. A good WU is when they
ridicule somebody or something, so when it sucks they deserve the ridiculing.
One skit that went nowhere had Jennifer and Rachel Dratch as joined
and Rachel had a baby arm growing out of her head. It had promise, but it
just didn't have any jokes so it fell flat like the rest of the show. Then they did
a Michael Jackson loves to climb trees thing that had all the potential in the world
but they just didn't write any jokes for it.
Do you think they sat around all week and said, "This
show's gonna suck?"
Or did they think they had a winner on their hands?
The cast is fine - they just need writers.
Keep pounding the unelected thief.
You're one of the very few with the stones to bash him like he deserves.
Believe me, you speak for many, many people in this country. I just got back
from the NYC rally, and saw a few BartCop signs there. Great rally!
I heard there were 500,000 - 1,000,000 in
London, over 500,000 in Madrid
and over 2 MILLION in Rome. Bush's buddies Poodle Blair, and butt-suckers
Aznar and Berlusconi must be shivering in their boots (or at least feel something
warm running down their legs).
Keep the hammer going, Bart; we're going

'In state after state, Republican governors are being forced to raise taxes to balance budgets
that are deep - caused by the Bush recession and stupid tax cuts. Well, now I have a better idea.
Why don't they follow their own philosophy in the central tenet of modern conservatism?
If they want to raise revenue, cut taxes.
That's supply side economic gospel being preached by Bush
and the whole right wing freak show. Hallelujah. I'm a convert."
--James Carville, Crossfire, 02/14/03
I read a lot about polls. But there are
polls that I don't see in the press anymore
that used to be common questions. So - I would ask everyone these two questions:
Are you better off that you were 2 years
Do you think the country is heading in the right direction?
If the answer to these two questions is
No - then lets change the direction of this country.
Regime change begins at home.
America is too important to be in the hands of an incompetent government.

You HAVE to watch this video, "Surfing the Apocalypse"
It is an absolute must-see!!
Don't let the music at the beginning disuade
you, it changes throughout the video
and about halfway thru it is so hysterical you will be laughing out loud.

“I don't think anybody doubts that the United
States could vanquish the
depleted armies of Saddam Hussein. But the reality is - here we are 58 years
after World War II. The United States still has troops in Japan and Germany.
Fifty years after the end of Korea, the United States still has troops there.”
-- Mark Shields, Capital Gang 2/15/03
We'll have men dying in Iraq long after the voters fire the never-elected Bush crook.
"Bush and Blair are now playing Osama bin Laden's
game. He, more than anyone, seems
to be looking forward to the war as a chance to replenish his ranks. He knows that every
shot of Iraqi children being pulled lifeless from the rubble will send hundreds of recruits
flocking to al-Qaida's banner."
--Andrew Murray , No mandate to go to war, guardian.co.uk
The majority of the population of Iraq is under
fifteen years of age.
Bush's own church is now running antiwar ads. The BFEE has lost every shred of perceived credibility
they ever had all over the world. It may turn into a long fight, but I can't think of a better cause.
Our lives, our quality of life, our freedoms. This is a hostile takeover by enemy forces from within.
We have nazis in the white house. At least much of Europe is sane, and the majority of us.
The legislative branch and the judicial branch are silent.
Only the people in this country are going to be able to save it.
Sometimes I think the BFEE wants WWIII; but then who will they sell their stolen oil to?
Need a job? Need to hire?
