"War with Iraq, $59 billion so far.
We're rebuilding Iraq, $900 million at least.
Privatizing Social Security - one trillion.
Tax cuts that have been passed - 1.3 trillion.
Tax cuts bush wants to pass - $700 billion.
Turning record surpluses into deficits and leaving
our children to clean up the mess - priceless."
--James Carville, Crossfire, (3/10/03)
Halliburton's publicity material boasts of its ability to establish temporary military bases under often hostile conditions -- an
invaluable preparation for the second phase of its project: laying the groundwork for oil exploration under often hostile conditions.
Cheney has been famously quoted in reference to the country of Iraq: "The good Lord didn't see fit to put oil and gas
only where there are democratic regimes friendly to the United States."
"The Bush press conference to me was like a mini-Alamo for American journalism, a final announcement that the press no longer
performs anything akin to a real function. Particularly revolting was the spectacle of the cream of the national press corps submitting
politely to the indignity of obviously pre-approved questions, with Bush not even bothering to conceal that the affair was scripted.
Abandoning the time-honored pretense of spontaneity, Bush chose the order of questioners not by scanning the room and picking
out raised hands, but by looking down and reading from a predetermined list. Reporters, nonetheless, raised their hands in between
questions–as though hoping to suddenly catch the president’s attention. In other words, not only were reporters going out of their way
to make sure their softballs were pre-approved, but they even went so far as to act on Bush’s behalf, raising their hands and jockeying
in their seats in order to better give the appearance of a spontaneous news conference."
You mean the press are nothing more than whores for this illegal
I'm surprised nobody has mentioned that before.
"I'm not a United Nations senator, I'm
a United States senator. I wonder what happened to sovereignty in
I think of our forefathers rolling over in their graves thinking before a president can defend America, he has to get
permission from some multinational organization. So I think the president will do what his constitutional oath tells
him to do, defend America with or without the United Nations or any other group."

Hey Pissquik, so you're saying if Pakistan feels threatened by
India, but can't show any proof why,
it's OK with you if they attack India even if the United Narions says they have no reason to?

Nuke Threat Little More Than Myth
by Joe Conason
Asked about the fake papers by Tim Russert on NBC's Meet the Press,
Colin Powell replied blandly: "If that information is inaccurate, fine."
With all due respect to the Secretary, the
appropriate word isn’t "inaccurate"
—and it isn’t "fine," either. It is horrific to contemplate that someone would
fabricate a document to foment a war likely to kill thousands. It is humiliating
to think that American intelligence services cannot distinguish a fake of that
kind—or, worse still, would consciously pass along such a fake to an international
authority. It is troubling to realize that the quality of information used by the
President as he prepares for war may be no better than that.

When real true-life starships descend, says Voron, "ionic-microwave streams interact with the environment. Here we can see
plants to stoop because of such interaction." Thus, a real starcraft!

Guts, No Glory
by Gene Lyons
If Bush were a real leader, he could acknowledge that absent Iraqi nukes, there's no
need for haste. He could yield to world opinion and give the French, Russians,
Chinese and Germans what they say they want: time for U.N. inspectors to finish
disarming Saddam. The world would praise his statesmanship. Pressure would shift
to the Security Council to prove itself.

Remembering the First Fight Against Fascism
March 12, 1943
Heavy fighting is still reported in Kharkov as the Germans clear the Russians from the city.
The Germans break mobile forces from the city fight and drive south in an attempt to cut off
Soviet forces southwest of the city. Further to the north, the Germans abandon and the Red Army
occupies Vyazma as Army Group Center continues its limited withdrawals to shorten their front.
In an attempt to outflank the Marenth Line,
Montgomery moves the 2nd New Zealand Division
and the 8th Armored Brigade south from Medenine opposite Wilder’s gap.

Bart, I've heard people CLAIM that Neil
Young was some sort of a hawk, but I've never seen a single quote.
("Rockin in the Free World" rips Bush Sr another asshole, in my opinion.) Now, maybe there is one, and I just missed it,
but do you actually have one? I thought it was more likely that right-wing assholes couldn't IMAGINE someone praising T
odd Beamer UNLESS he was a right-wing asshole. So they ASSUMED Neil must be one of them.
Is there any actual quote from Neil showing support for the Bush Baby? Or is that a rumor?
Carl, I saw it myself.
I don't remember exactly what he said, but I remember being really pissed off about it.
There are some people we just can't imagine turning Bush blower, so when Neil did I got steamed.
I imagine the quote is in a back issue, but my search engine broke months ago, dammit.
Anybody have a Neil Young quote praising America's worst serial killer?

caught with $8B in "documents"
Gee, could you muddy up the story for us?
Click Here Dateline Berlin
German investigators are examining documents found in the car of Don Johnson
that list transactions totaling US$8 billion, a customs official said Wednesday.
"Documents totalling $8B"
What does that mean?
Johnson's car was stopped for a routine
check as he entered Germany from Switzerland
in November with two other men, said Wolfgang Schmitz, a spokesman for German customs.
This happened in November? Why wait 4 months to reveal it?
And he was leaving Switzerland,
a country that probably allows you to possess as much "documents" as you want.
Officials photocopied the documents, but
they did not seize them and allowed the actor
to continue his journey without formally questioning him, Schmitz said.
Well then, if nothing was seized, and nobody was arrested, there's
really no need for this story
to even be a news item except for the amount, 8 billion in "documents."
Do you think this story was written by a moron or a German - or both?
What the hell does "documents" mean? He has a receipt from an ATM for an $8B withdrawal?
And besides the B.F.E.E., who carries $8B with them, anyway?
It's too bad news organizations can't write a news story that makes f-ing sense.

-- A Philly funeral home
Latest poll brings good news and bad
"...many Americans remain perplexed about what Mr. Bush is doing and why he is doing it. While Bush says his
main goal is disarming Iraq, Americans are more likely to say he is motivated by a desire to oust Saddam from power.
A majority says Bush has failed to tell them what they need to know about the justification for a pre-emptive attack.
Respondents were nearly evenly divided when asked
if Mr. Bush was being guided by the memory of his father's
dealings with Mr. Hussein in prosecuting what would be the nation's second war against Iraq in 12 years. Nearly
half said Mr. Bush was driven by the personal desire to accomplish what his father did not when he cut off his
invasion of Iraq in 1991 without ousting Mr. Hussein. Younger men in the poll were more apt to see a familial
motivation for the president.
There is clear concern among Americans that the
United States is paying a price internationally for Mr. Bush's
aggressive posture. The number of Americans who believe that their president enjoys the respect of world
leaders has dropped to 45 percent from 67 percent in the space of a year.
An Open Letter to a Certain Ex-President
"We're losing a battle, as to who the good
guy against Saddam Hussein. In Canada, 51 percent say
Americans are behaving like bastards. In Ireland, 60 percent say they fear Bush over Saddam.
In Britain, Bush and Saddam are equal threats to world peace. If our diplomacy has been so inept
and our ability to move world opinion has been so inept and you say we didn't need this U.N. in first place,
why in the hell are we doing that and getting the living crap kicked out of us?"

Word's out: Protest at Hillary's tonight
Freepers will heckle Hillary Clinton and her Senator guests at a fundraiser in her Washington home Tuesday night.
"It ought to be fun," says protest organizer Kathy Wood, who'll be holding a sign, "Corrupt Democrats Turn Here!"
Wood, of the Washington chapter of Freeperville,
says the focus of the protest is to encourage Senate Democrats
attending the fundraiser to approve the judicial nomination of Hispanic Republican Miguel Estrada.
This seems like a non-story, doesn't it? I mean, Hillary
has Secret Service protection, and you can't get a permit
to screw up somebody's neighborhood, so the cops will arrest anybody blocking traffic, harassing motorists etc.
And while we're on the subject of Miguel Estrada, I have a weird
story to tell you about him.
As you know, we don'yt do these kinds of stories on bartcop.com but this story came from someone
I know is well-connected, and she says it's the top subject in DC after Smirky's illegal oil war.
She says the rumor going around DC is that Estrada is gay, but
that's not the weird part.
The weird part is he's gay and extremely psychotic about his feelings about being gay.
The way I heard the rumor, Estrada picked up a man in Dupont Circle,
got a hotel and did the deed.
Seconds after doing whatever they did, Estrada jumped out of bed, pointed to the guy and screamed, "You're gay!"
So the pros (that's what they call them on NYPD Blue) looks at
Estrada and said, "Duh! You are, too!"
To which Estrada replied, "No, I'm not - I'm married."
...and that's what makes him too weird to be an appeals court judge.
Not that he's gay, but that he's so unable to grip that reality
(if the story's true) that he would be
way, way, way blackmail-friendly if somebody threatened to expose his late-night hobbies.
In closing, you know I don't do these kinds of stories.
My mailbox gets 20 weird sex stories every day, some of them involving politics :)
But they say this rumor is allllll over Washington DC, but nobody will put it in print.
I guess it's because Mr Rove wants Estrada confirmed and the newspapers are too afraid to cross him.
