"Thanks to the most crudely partisan decision
in the history of the Supreme Court, the nation
has been given a President of painfully limited wisdom and compassion and lacking any sense
of the nation's true greatness. Appearing to enjoy his role as Commander in Chief of the armed
forces above all other functions of his office, and unchecked by a seemingly timid Congress,
a compliant Supreme Court, a largely subservient press and a corrupt corporate plutocracy,
George W. Bush has set the nation on a course for one-man rule."

Critics of the war across the world have been accusing the US and the British of aiming for regime change in Baghdad
under the guise of “unearthing and dismantling weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.” There have been constant
accusations that the US and the British are eyeing Iraq’s huge oil wealth, promoting Israeli interests, and that its
campaign against WMD is only a convenient cover-up.
Even countries like Germany, Russia and
France had been less than impressed with the US-led war against Iraq
saying all along that the task of unearthing weapons of mass destruction, if any, is better left to UN weapons' inspectors.
In making the confession in an interview with BBC radio, the British Home Secretary however admitted that the
non-discovery of any WMD would “lead to a very interesting debate” about the war.
Not in America, it work.
Russert and FOX News and the rest of Bush's press will say, "This was always abour freeing the Iraqi people,"
even tho Cubans are imprisoned 90 miles from US shores - but Cuba has no oil, so screw those prisoners.

Subject: This time you've gone too far
All the crap you wrote about Jessica Lynch is damaging.
Hey, take a Pamprin and try to make some sense, would you?
You sound like a frigging Freeper there waxing orgasmic over a white blond chick.
Maybe you should take two Pamprin.
"She kicked Iraqi ass!" Really, how much more disgusting are you willing to get!
Make it three Pamprin, and try to grasp the idea that we
can't have a conversation
until you take a breath and make some sense. (This e-mail came screaming in all caps.).
That's what the Repukes said many joined the Army 'cause they wanted to kick "Iraqi ass."
What the Repukes say and what's real is usually different.
Who have you, personally, talked to that has joined the Army specifically to "kick Iraqi ass?"
They would've had to have joined in the last six months - you know a lot of these guys?
I don't believe you, and funny you'll believe the Freepers online before you'd believe me,
but then, we've always been the stab-in-the-back party, haven't we?
Another thing, when you're in the Army, on the battlefield, you
don't do politics. You don't
debate which orders you're willing to follow. There's no time. I wrote about the information
that was known at the time, so you can cram your Wabac machine up your ass.
This country is a murderous rouge gone amok
and there you are sweating with pride over
some white blond young person, someone much, much too young for you to even consider.
So, what angers you more - the "murderous rouge" (by the way,
that's French for 'red.') or the fact that
I'm 49 and found the pretty teenager attractive? Christ, it's not like she's 6-year old Jon Benet. I observe
things and I wrote them down. If you don't think Pvt Lynch is attractive - fine. But I saw her beauty as a
danger in this case and I said so. Why do you think the Iraqi's killed everyone but the pretty blonde?
You got a problem with the facts in this case? Blow it out
your ass. I don't really think a
19-year old soldier would want to date an 49-year old, unemployed Okie with a rat-like voice.
How very disgusting!!
You managed to sound exactly like Rush!
Since you have failed to state something coherent to which I can
reply, I must assume you're
one of those "the military is bad" types, so let me ask you a simple question:
Have you ever seen a tank from another country rolling up your street?
No, you haven't, and our military is the reason why. You're free
to hate me and the military all you want.
You can call me "Rush" 1000 times but I'm still not going to march in your "the military is bad" parade.
I'm against this war, and everyone but the extra-stupid readers
know that, but I'm not going to be like
Rush and love/hate them in four year election cycles. I've been pro-military since the day I flunked
my induction physical, and that was a joke in case you can't figure it out.
If you can't appreciate the beauty of a woman, and you can't respect
incredible courage under fire,
then I don't think you're living much of a life.
I saw one of those FOX Weenies talking about the war.
He said, "They're rioting in the streets of Basra, because they think America is there
just to steal the oil and they're going to allow Saddam to stay in power and that's causing panic."
They know Bush is there just to steal their oil, but that's
not their biggest problem.
After six months of saying, "I'm gonna kill Saddam," Bush lately has been saying that
catching or killing Saddam isn't important, just like he did with his old partner Osama.
These people have already been screwed by a wimpy Bush, and many
paid for it with their lives.
Knowing that Bush's foreign policy always means "Do things half way, declare victory, then leave,"
doesn't help these people one damn bit - and I certainly can't blame them for being scared.
Our corporate controlled TV networks might as well be state controlled, because they promote
the war and Bush policies fairly consistently and have virtually eliminated all dissenting voices.
NBC fired Phil Donahue despite his good ratings, saying in an internal network memo they didn't
want to air Donahue's anti-war views. Peter Arnett was fired for giving an interview to Iraqi TV
and merely stating the obvious on a number of issues. For example, Arnett said media reports of
civilian casualties had helped the "growing challenge to President Bush about the conduct of the war."
According to William Shirer (THE RISE AND
FALL OF THE THIRD REICH, Ballantine Books, 1950),
the Reich Press Law of October 4, 1933, ordered editors not to publish (among other things) anything
which "tends to weaken the strength of the German Reich or offends the honor and dignity of Germany."
The Nazis forced dissenting journalists out of business and consolidated the press under party control.
U.S. television news networks have been consolidated under the control of a handful of corporations.
America doesn't need a "press law" prohibiting the airing of anything which might weaken the strength
of Bush's war policies, because the corporate owners of today's television networks are in total
agreement with the state.
“Michael Moore simultaneously represents everything
I detest in a human being
and everything I feel obligated to defend in an American. Quite simply, it is that
stupid moron's right to be that utterly, completely wrong.”
-- former comedian-turned Bush cabanaboy Dennis Miller
Pentagon Defends Our Using Civilian Clothes
"The Pentagon on Friday defended the use of some civilian clothes by U.S. special operations forces,
a tactic used to help them blend in with the local population. Alleging war crimes, Bush administration
officials complained bitterly last week that Iraqi paramilitary forces dressed as civilians, faked surrenders
and used other battlefield ruses to kill American soldiers. Asked at a Pentagon press conference why it
is OK for American commando troops to take off their uniforms, but a crime when the Iraqis did it,
Defense Department spokeswoman Victoria Clarke said she thought American forces wear something
that distinguishes them from civilians, but deferred the question for a later answer."
Subject: National debt
According to http://www.publicdebt.treas.gov/opd/opdpenny.htm
the national debt is about
6.5 trillion dollars. In the last fiscal year, the federal government spent 1/3 trillion dollars on interest.
The average interest on their borrowing
is roughly like that on a 15-year fixed home mortgage.
And the federal government spends about 1/5 of its money on interest payments. If an individual
spent 1/5 of his/her income on mortgage interest, I guess it would be OK.
Yet, somehow it seems dangerous and wrong
for the government to owe 6 1/2 trillion dollars.
Maybe it's just unfamiliarity with such large numbers.
In any case, I still hate rich people and
feel that most of them are thieves. Smirk's tax breaks
for the rich make me nauseous. Why don''t most people in the US want class warfare?
Maybe I'm just envious or immature. If I knew how to get rich, maybe I'd hate everybody who isn't.
Still, I can't shake the feeling that there's something fundamentally corrupt in this system of things
and that only saps like me play by the rules.
Speaking to the "future leaders of Belarus"
(Academy of Sciences, Minsk, Belarus, 15/January/1994).
Bill Clinton said "inflation hurts the people economies should reward the most, those who simply get up
and go to work every day obeying the law." And that "there is no substitute for putting the people of the
nation in the driver's seat. ... there is no way that one group of people, sitting atop a society, can make
decisions which suffice to guarantee the best possible life for all of the people who live in that society."

“I think there was an expectation this would
be a lightning fast war and this is a political war, and if we win,
which we will inevitably win because we’re the most powerful military in the world, but at what cost?
The danger is that we can win the military victory and lose the peace. The measure of resistance that
we’ve seen and the kind of fighting bodes ill for the occupation and I know we want to call it a liberation,
but I think this looks more like a war of conquest than a war of liberation.”

what they've done to my rights
I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all threats - foreign or domestic.
The gravest threat to our civil liberties comes from those claiming to defend our civil liberties and the so called
American way of life. Supporting a dubiously elected president and irrational policies weakens this country.
Not supporting him may be only way to save it and the rest of the world from coming darkness.

View from Canada

Now with working
Bush has cowed the mainstream media completely. Anyone who criticizes his
administration gets frozen out, so no one dares cross him. Your cable news
stations are battling to see who can be the most right wing and the most mindlessly
pro-Bush. Your government has changed so that much more power is now
concentrated in the executive, and you have set up the framework for a very
effective police state with the Patriot Act. He has destroyed your public finances,
yet all I hear from pundits is the horrible damage the Clinton years did to America.
Are you guys living in Bizarro world, or what?
The Democrats are scared of the Witless Weenie.
When Bush barks, they tremble like bunnies.
The Democrats weren't even smart enough to figure out that by
unlimited, unilateral powers, they were giving away the presidency - possibly forever.
Not that "the president" has this much power, they will never
allow that power
to get into the hands of am legally-elected Democrat. Power this great could
only belong to a near saint, hand-picked by God to reverse the Clinton miracle.
They will fix the 2004 elections, and I wouldn't be surprised
to see another major
"terrorist" attack a month before the "election," to remind people that only Bush is
fit to be president until "all evil" is eradicated from every country.
While the Democrats are cowering,
the Supreme Court is celebrating,
and the GOP can't stop laughing
because it was all so easy.
Soon, each American will, by law, have to conform to "God's wishes."
The B.F.E.E. has carried out bin Laden's plans perfectly.

We'll then feed the fun calls into the computer for BartCop Radio.
Well, I accidentally erased all of Friday's calls.
One was a report from Denver on the Pearl Jam "treason."
One was from Dallas talking about the A&M-SMU fight for the Moron's Lie-brary.
One was from a lady who found a shot of Chicaco from weeks ago - she said the resin
smelled like honey and flowers, but she'd never do that again - she'll drink it next time.
One was from an anti-war marine who appreciated my yes-to-troops, no-to-war stance.
There were others, but they're gone.
It was my first file transfer with the newly-wired system and the signal was so strong
that it sent every needle into the red big-time, which should be good news for future calls.

That Iraq Minister of Information is almost
as good a liar as our own Ari Fleischer.
There was that dude holding a press conference with fighting about 1/2 mile away
and he's saying the US troops have been routed. Reminds me of Ari telling us how

is releasing figures on another 350,000 jobs being lost.

"They say we're softening them up.
We're not softening them up - we're killing them."
-- quote of an unidentified Marine that FOX is playing every five minutes.
Years ago, I think it was '92 or '93, I heard my first G. Gordon
The first words I ever heard him speak were about WWII.
I remember him saying something like, "When
WWII started, Germany's tanks
were far superior to anything we had, and Japans pilots were not only superior,
their planes were better and they outnumbered us by ten-to-one."
And I thought, "Wow, he sure is taking
a risk - saying that in some ways the enemy
was 'better' than us," but then I realized he was probably telling the truth (about that)
and in these modern times, honesty would trump cheap-ass jingoism.
But all that changed when we lost our right to vote in 2000.
I wonder if Bill Maher, the Dixie Chicks and Peter Arnett would agree?

Subject: Bill Maher
What the hell is up with Bill Maher.
I'm watching his show, and he is acting more and mre like a Bush supporter.
If he's just playing "devils advocate", he's doing a good job. I think we're way past that however. He either doesn't
see the attack on our civil liberties, or he is just acting blind to it. Either way, who wants to see that? Either show
support against the greatest threat this country has ever seen, or join the rest of the media whores, Bill.
He's starting to act more like Geraldo every show. He is now FOR the oil war? Please.
Maher is often on the right side of things, but he seems to be
one of those people who think,
"Now that troops are in the field, we all join hands with the president," which will only
encourage the Unelected Idiot to put more troops in more fields.

The man, the legend, the hair!
Tulsa legend David Dover has agreed to be the house band for BartCop
Like The Today Show, maybe he'll come in on Fridays a do a few tunes.
Dover, a Tulsa fixture of dozens of years, has played with
everyone from The Beach Boys
to Humble Pie, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Robin Trower, Cheap Trick, Tesla, 38 Special and more.
At one time he had the only authorized Creedence tribute band in America.
I asked him if he knew Eric Clapton's 80s band that was from Tulsa,
and he said,
"The first time I played with Peter Frampton, Jamie Oldaker (sp?) was my drummer.
The next time I played with Frampton, Oldaker was his drummer."
Dave's a little like Paul Schaffer, in that he knows thousands
of songs and can play
anything from rock to country to old people's music. Once, back at the old Rock Island,
I had a visit from the BMI-ASCAP people. They started playing hardball, saying that
I had to write them a big check or they'd bust me for stealing songs, so Dover says,
"If the guys shows up tonight, I can play a three hour set without playing one
song registered with BMI or ASCAP." How many people could pull that off?
So we're looking forward to having Dave coming in once a week.
Wish us luck, and consider joining the team!
...and send BC Powder so my headache goes away.

The person basically asked how you can praise a show that glorifies violence. You replied that it's only a TV show and
a damn good one at that. ("Get a life," in essence ;) ). I can agree with the last part -- The Sopranos is a well-written
and-acted series. However, since I hate violence and I especially hate bullies, I hate the Mafia.
If I knew a real life Tony Soprano and knew
that I could get away with it, I'd blow his goddamn brains out.
