"Liberty is not America's gift to the world, it is God's gift to each and every person."
  --Dubya's "press conference," White House, Mar. 6, 2003


 But Governor, is freedom is God's gift, why did God take back that gift from the citizens of Cuba,
 North Korea, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and most of the women on this giant blue ball?

 Besides, that piece of horseshit is one of Rush's "35 Undeniable Truths."
 Can't the Governor write his own speeches instead of copying the vulgar Pigboy?

 Bush: Praise me, worship me or no speech

  Click  Here

 George Bush pulled out of a speech to the European Parliament when
 MEPs wouldn't guarantee a standing ovation.

 Senior White House officials said the President would only go to Strasbourg
 to talk about Iraq if he had a stage-managed welcome.

 A source close to negotiations said last night: "President Bush agreed to a speech
 but insisted he get a standing ovation like at the State of the Union address.
"His people also insisted there were no protests, or heckling.

 His entire life, Smirk has never done anything that wasn't fixed before the start.
 If you can't show him a certified script declaring him the winner,
 he refuses to play and takes Daddy's oil derrick and goes home.

 He's a fake and a fraud and by now the whole world knows it.


"...please try to realize that when you see news coverage [of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba] much of the time
  you're not getting the whole story, but an account filtered through a liberal mindset with an agenda...
  It's a shame that we can't have an unbiased media who would just report the truth and let us make up our own minds..."
    -- Charlie Daniels, An Open Letter To The Media,

 Charlie, you are a stupid and racist bastard,
 The only "news" we get from Gitmo is what Bush and Cheney want us to know.
 It's not like liberal reporters are crawling all over Cuba interviewing Al Qaeda, then lying about it.

 Like everything Bush has done in his life, Gitmo information is fixed and impossible to verify,
 but you say the liberal press is lying about the scant info the B.F.E.E. hands them?

 Charlie, do you still sing "It's 'Be kind to niggers week," on your tour bus?

 Now I know why Bush vs Saddam sounds familiar.
 It's Rodney King all over again.

 Remember what the crazy LA cops were doing? While beating Rodney
 (was it 87 blows to the head?) the cops were screaming at him to,
 "Put your arms down and stop resisting arrest."

 Now how the hell is Rodney going to put his arms at his sides while these blood-thirsty cops
 were beating him senseless with their night sticks?  Those night sticks, last I heard, are made
 from the same stuff as billiard balls.  Have you ever seen a billiard ball break?

 No, you haven't, because they are made from what's called a phenolic resin,
 and that substance is harder than Jimmy Swaggert in a Louisiana whorehouse.

 Similarly, Bush is telling Saddam, "We're coming to kill you any day now,
 so stop defending yourself and drop your weapons because here we come."
 It's clearly a strategy to provoke war, not to get Saddam to disarm.

 Where you're in a blood-crazed state of lust, like Bush is, you never think to try the obvious.
 Has anyone said, "Saddam, if we guarantee not to invade, will you disarm?"

 Isn't that what we did with Cuba 41 years ago?  (It is)
 But nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
 Little Lord George wants to play with his new toys and he wants that oil.

 Bush keeps saying "War is my last option," but in truth, war is his only option because
 the polls say he'll lose to any Democrat, so he's got to fabricate a war and be a big man.

 And nobody on the planet can stop him.


"I think the most frightening thing is that W is the leader of this nation and he clearly has a brain
  that can hold four paragraphs and very little else. Some have already argued the press conference
  was scripted -- W's part of it clearly was. That was a thoroughly unimpressive performance.  W wasn't
  even capable of effectively answering the softball questions last night. Of course, we all have our bad days
  but he's had two years to get better at this -- and he clearly hasn't.  I'm not sure I want any more of these
  press conferences. They remind me of just how inarticulate and uninspiring W is as president. He's better
  in delivering prepared remarks -- let's just let him stick to the script, shall we?"

 But even as intelligence agencies investigate the extent of Bin Laden's links with terrorist outfits around the world,
 the West is digesting quite a different image of the young boy through a family photograph, taken in the Swedish
 town of Falun in the summer of 1971.

 The photograph, which appeared in several British tabloids on Monday, accompanies media revelations that not only
 was the young Bin Laden fairly Westernised before he embraced Islamist radicalism, he also had a close family link
 with American President George W. Bush.

 How in the hell did this make the news?
 It's from The Times of India, a press outlet not under the control of the B.F.E.E..

Belief in a cruel God makes a cruel man

 The Progressive quotes reporter Bob Woodward as saying that Bush characterizes
 his "mission" and that of the U. S. "in the grand vision of God's master plan."
 According to Woodward's book, BUSH AT WAR, Bush often states he operates
 mainly by gut instinct.  He told Woodward, "I'm not a textbook player.  I'm a gut player."

 Comment: I think that means he can't read.

 How guilty is Robert Blake?

 Maybe I just missed it, but I haven't seen any e-mail that says,
 "Yes Bart, I'd love to be point man for the Blake circus."

 Give Bush credit, he got through an entire softball tournament (aka/press conference)
 without a single trip to the beer keg.

 Bush looked as if the NRA had just ambushed him with an automatic tranquilizer gun.

 A shot clock would have added about 15 questions to last night's tedious stall by Bush.

 That event last night deserved to be called a "press conference" about as much
 as Bush deserves to be called "president."


"How do you measure the benefit of freedom in Iraq? I guess, if you're an Iraqi citizen you can measure it
  by being able to express your mind and vote. How do you measure the consequence of taking a dictator
  out of -- out of power who has tried to invade Kuwait?"
     --Dubya's "press conference," White House, Mar. 6, 2003


 Governor Stupid,
 How do you measure freedom in America when our votes didn't get counted because one
 candidate's daddy ran the CIA and has friends on the whore court who owe him favor?

 How free are we to express our minds if Ari tell us to "Watch what we say,"
 and you and Ashcroft can legally execute anybody you want?

 Lastly, Saddam didn't TRY to invade Kuwait - he DID invade Kuwait,
 after your Daddy send him written permission in 1990.

 George, you're an incompetent liar and a fraud. You were NOT elected and you shouldn't be dragging
 the Democratic majority into a war after the nation rejected your candidacy by voting for Gore.

 I placed my order from South's Finest Chocolate last week.
 Three days later the UPS man rang the doorbell at BartCop Manor.

 I am enjoying the finest-tasting chocolate ever - and I can't stand how good it is.

 If you think "Chocolate is chocolate," then by all means, buy Hershey or Nestles,
 but that's like saying "Tequila is tequila."

 Do something nice for yourself.
 Dial  865-522-2049  and order the best chocolate ever.

 I like the plain milk chocolate, but most people prefer the "box of chocolates," Gump talked about.

 Subject: Bush chose the right date for his deadline to Saddam: St. Patrick's Day

 March 17 is the perfect day for Bush to announce that we're going to war, since many Americans
 will be drunk anyway in celebration of St. Patrick's Day. It will be a good idea to have had a few
 stiff drinks before being told, in effect, "Dear Sir: We are going to war with Iraq. Your son will be
 sent to Baghdad, and don't be surprised if he comes home in a bag, Dad." Maybe New York's
 St. Patrick's Day parade should include wheeling missiles down the street. "Are you scared yet,
 Saddam Hussein? In a crime family, the son often finishes a job left unfinished by the father."


This Eckhard fella?
I don't like his tone.
Bring him in for some secret torture.

 Led Zeppelin Live at Last on DVD and CD
 Legendary Performances Due May 27th

  Click  Here

 Atlantic Records has announced the forthcoming release of the mother lode of Led Zeppelin live recordings.

 Slated for a simultaneous May 27th release are "LED ZEPPELIN DVD," a two-disc set, and "HOW THE
 WEST WAS WON," a three-CD set. Long sought-after by Zeppelin devotees and collectors, this marks the
 first-ever official release of these rare and legendary performances, which span the group's entire career.

 There is good news and bad news.
 The bad news is since I have one of the best live Zeppelin collections anywhere, this probably is material
 that we true collectors already possess. The good news is the quality of the recordings should be better than
 what's currently being traded.

 Years ago, there was a "burglary" at Jimmy Page's house and several dozen live concert tapes were "stolen."
 I'm using quotes because the shows that were "stolen" and then traded between collectors all seemed to be
 sub-standard nights.  I mean, what are the odds the band only recorded the poor or mediorce concerts?

 There are almost 200 concerts available to collectors, and the dozens of magic nights the band had were
 captured by these audiuence recordings, so why were none of them amongst the "stolen" tapes?"
 But maybe we'll be fabulously surprised and a couple of magic nights will be included.

 In the last forty years, there have been many bands that, when they were hot and in their prime, were the
 "best live rock band in the world," but I believe nobody was ever better than Zeppelin at their peak.

 I guess we'll find out on May 27th.

 Subject: SNL/Bush

 On Saturday Night Live, there was a Robert Smigel cartoon with the Heroic "Ex-Presidents." I didn't see
 all of it -- I think it had something to do with SpongePants Bob not getting on board with the Iraq War push.

 At the end of the piece with the ex-prez's gathered with Dumbya, Gerry Ford made a comment.
 One of the other ex-president's said, "Don't listen to him, he wasn't elected." George W. said,
 "That's okay, I wasn't either." The audience burst out laughing and clapped furiously!

 UN launches inquiry into American spying

  Click  Here

 Last week The Observer published details of a memo sent by Frank Koza, Defence Chief of Staff (Regional
 Targets) at the US National Security Agency, which monitors international communications. The memo ordered an
 intelligence 'surge' directed against Angola, Cameroon, Chile, Bulgaria and Guinea with 'extra focus on
 Pakistan UN matters'. The 'dirty tricks' operation was designed to win votes in favour of intervention in Iraq.

 This is a pointless exercise.
 What if they find proof Bush is blackmailing countries to support his illegal oil war?
 What will they do then - issue a "Declaration of Disappointment?"
 Are they going to assemble a coalition to invade America and bring Bush to justice?

 Bush is untouchable by anybody except perhaps senior Republicans banding together.

 'Sopranos' Boss Sues HBO to Whack Pact
  What failed-writer moron wrote that headline?

  Click  Here

 James Gandolfini is trying to put a hit out on his employment contract with HBO.

 Gandolfini, who plays Tony Soprano on HBO's "The Sopranos" filed suit Thursday
 seeking declaratory relief that would free him from being obliged to return for the
 next season of HBO's mob drama, its fifth.

 This is sad.
 Gandolf gets $400,000 per show and he wants more - a lot more.
 99 percent of actors would kill to have his job (pun intended) and when
 James gets to the top of the mountain he's angry and wants more?

 He's making $10M for two seasons, producer David Chase is being paid (they say)
 $20M for a fifth season, so how much of that pie does Gandolf have to have?

 If I ever make $400K a week and then whine about it,
 can I depend on you to slap the jumping bejezes out of me?

 Dueling Headlines

Saddam 'is not disarming'  (USA TODAY)

Blix: Iraq Actively Cooperating to Disarm   (AP)

 Both headlines appeared simultaneously on Yahoo 11:17 CST Friday morning
 So, which one is telling the truth?
 Either one is the truth and one is not or they're both lying.

 I vote the latter - they're both lying to make an extra nickle by whoring.

 Subject: Savage Dealings

 Mr. Sorenson:

 I am shocked that a supposedly professional organization like MSNBC would hire hate-monger Michael Savage as on-air "talent".
 As you are probably aware of the thrust and content of his "message" I will not go into it at length here. As an example, he is widely
 known for his views on blacks, calling black children "ghetto slime" and generally carrying on as if he were a white supremist. If you
 think that your audience finds that sort of rot even mildly amusing, then you are either mistaken or your audience has a screw loose.

 Genuine conservatives eshew rabble-rousing trash like Savage, and I for one, will avoid MSNBC like the political whore that it has
 become, feeding a violent, extreme neo-right wing populace that is starved for empowerment.  You have successfully lowered
 MSNBC into the gutters of journalism.

“Michael Savage is brash, passionate and smart,” said Sorenson. “His conservative point of view adds
 to the kaleidoscope of perspectives already heard on MSNBC — a place where a range of voices
 have their say, without any one dominating the channel itself. ‘The Savage Nation’ will anchor our
 Saturday afternoon program schedule and become destination television..."

 Yeah, NBC's 'kaleidoscope' has as many colors as elected Republicans.

 What a joke - they sack Donahue, their top money-maker, because they know
 Savage can bring in that all-important ditto-monkey dollar. If you're not familiar
 with Savage, he makes Rush the vulgar Pigboy seem sane and normal by comparison.

 Subject: Media Bias

 I guess you don't consider the 3 major networks-CBS, NBC, ABC, "Liberal".

 Your damn right I don't.
 They haven't done ONE investigative story on Bush in 3 and a half years.

 When you look at the numbers, the media has written over 10,000 stories on Bill and Hillary
 for "crimes" that Ken Starr had to admit never happened, but Bush has hidden his files and Reagan's
 files to hide serious crimes of a global nature and the networks look away to protect him.

 When you look at their nightly news programs, they are blatantly anti-2nd amendment rights,
 pro-abortion, pro big Government, pro-palestinian, anti-tax cuts, etc. etc.

 That's not true.
 You can't show me one instance where a major network pulls a "Rush" or a "Savage"
 on any right-of-center issue or personality. I'm calling on you to prove that wild assertion.

 Their share of the viewers is constantly shrinking because they are SO liberal!

 I hear you talking, but saying it doesn't make it so.
 Sure, to the people to the right of FOX News see the networks as "way too liberal,"
 but the facts don't support your radical theory. Prove it - show me.

 Besides, ten years ago there was only a handful of networks, so yeah, the big three
 now have to share TV bandwidth with 500 other channeks, doesn't that make sense?

 Plus, just this week, they fired Donahue to make room for Savage.
 You see that as more proof that they're all leftists?

 Subject: Savage Shameful

 To whom it may concern at MSNBC:
 I  have just watched the show The Savage Nation for the first and last time.  The man on this show,
 for an entire hour spoke right wing code talk for 'there's too many foreigners in the country', 'liberals
 are against America' and 'dissent is harmful to the country and should be put down'.  Hanging up on
 a caller because they mentioned his history of calling third world countries "turd world countries"
 was pathetically craven.  It also seems a bit fishy that so many longtime listeners got through,
 I dialed the phone number at least 40 times for the first half hour and never got through.

 In truth, it is Michael Savage's statements that approach treason, his vile words are traitorous to the
 spirit of American freedom.  Any credibility that MSNBC retained in my mind is gone now and it joins
 FoxNews as a racist, right-wing media arm of an administration that ignores the concerns of it's populace
 and considers dissent criminal.

 Texas Republicans Decide that Handicapped Children are Expendable

 Now normally when the state of Texas kills people, it is done at the Walls in Huntsville -- and we like
 to think the perps deserve it, despite the fact that our state's appellate system is essentially non-functioning.
 We do not, as a rule, kill poor handicapped children because of some bureaucratic misjudgment.

 Last Resort?

 It's amazing that Bush still calls war with Iraq a "last resort" while at the same time he's in a mad rush
 to get this war started. Iraq poses no immediate threat. The weapons inspectors have found nothing.
 Bush isn't being honest and considering the sacrifices we are being asked to make - America deserves honesty.

 While the Bush administration confronts North Korea over development of nuclear weapons,

 This moron may end up being the death of us all.


“With as much concern as the leftists profess to have for liberty, civil and human rights, I can't believe
  they're willing to sit idly by and let the people of Iraq be summarily murdered, tortured, gassed and
  live under total totalitarianism. I don't understand where their so-called 'compassion' is.”

 But Rush, who sold Saddam the poison gas in the first place?

 And why didn't he say anything when Saddam gassed his people in the eighties?

 Halliburton 'Wins' Contract to Rebuild Iraq's Oil Fields 

  Click  Here

 The contract was disclosed in the last paragraph of a Defense Department statement on preparations
 for Saddam's possible destruction of Iraq's oil fields in the event of a U.S.-led invasion. The statement
 calls for proposals on how to handle oil well fires and for assessing other damage to oil facilities.
 The contract went to Kellogg Brown & Root Services, which is owned by Halliburton Co.

 First, this couldn't possibly be news to anyone who reads

 Second, I put 'wins' in quotes because there wasn't any kind of bidding, was there?
 Cheney's company was 'awarded' this contract because they are kicking back
 hundreds of millions to our ungodly new overloards, the B.F.E.E..

 Third, they'll keep the size of the contract a secret, but whatever the contract calls for,
 expect Halliburton to exceed those costs by 300 percent - more billions for the B.F.E.E..

 Dear Sir/Madam~

 I am appalled that you would even consider firing Mr Sheen from the West Wing due to his political views!
 America is in dire need of more people who are willing to speak their viewpoints regarding this ridiculous war.
 When the mainstream wants celebrities to be "role models" they're screaming for it, but now they want Mr Sheen
 to shut up because his viewpoints don't agree with theirs?  What ever happened to free speech?

 Please don't give in to the conservative puppets that are controlling our air-waves.
 Stand up for Mr Sheen!!!  At least he has the balls to say what he feels is right!
 If he is fired, I will no longer be watching any programs on NBC and will encourage my friends to do like-wise.

 I have some bad news for you younger kids.
 Have you ever heard of the Smothers Brothers?

 Sure you have, but do you know what single event put them in the political history booksl?
 I forget the year, 1968, 1969, maybe, they had the Number One show in all of television.
 Number One, just like C.S.I. is now, and CBS cancelled them at Nixon's request.

 That's right - the Smothers were protesting the Vietnam war each week, and CBS cancelled the Number
 One show as a sign of solidarity because, I guess, CBS wanted more names on the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
 Since then, the outrageous incest between a Republican White House and the media has intensified.

 If they'd cancel Number One to please the White House, do you think the company that just hired Michael Savage
 won't bend over backwards to impress the idiot who stole Gore's rightfully-elected home?

 Goodbye, West Wing.    You and The Sopranos have ruled quality TV for 3-4 years, but America
 no longer tolerates Free Speech, so maybe next time you'll take Ari's advice and "Watch what you say."

 'Proof' That Iraq Sought Uranium Is Fake

  Click  Here

 The head of the U.N. nuclear agency said on Friday that the documents backing U.S. and British
 allegations that Iraq had attempted to import uranium from Niger were "not authentic."

"Based on thorough analysis, the IAEA has concluded ... that these documents, which formed the
 basis for the reports of recent uranium transactions between Iraq and Niger, are in fact not authentic,"
 International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei said in a report to the U.N. Security Council.

"We have therefore concluded that these specific allegations are unfounded," he said.

 In other words, the B.F.E.E. has been caught fabricating evidence for this phoney oil war again.
 No wonder we're hated and despised around the world now.
