"For Bush -- the whole day was devoted to linking
his presidency to the aura of the U.S. military.
When the Viking S-3B carrying Bush made its tailhook landing on the aircraft carrier Thursday,
Bush emerged from the cockpit in full olive flight suit and combat boots, his helmet tucked jauntily
under his left arm. As he exchanged salutes with the sailors, his ejection harness, hugging him tightly
between the legs, gave him the bowlegged swagger of a top gun. The carrier landing capped a recent
period in which the president has tied himself to the military as never before. And that is no accident:
Bush aides are planning to make his war leadership the focus of his 2004 reelection campaign, and
yesterday's images are crucial in burning that impression into the national cornea."
--Dana Milbank,For Bush, the Military Is the Message for '04
Only in America would the press let an idiot
who deserted his post during wartime claim he's a war hero.
We don't have a free press that will tell the truth and we don't have an opposition party to the fascist dogs
who have stolen our government - What's it going to take to wake up the Democrats?
"I am a brave war hero who risked my life for others."
"You sure are - and we love you!"
That's strike one.
"The most important thing to know is that the Iraqi soldiers and commanders had left the hospital almost two
days earlier," Houssona said. "The night they left, a few of the senior medical staff tried to give Jessica back.
We carefully moved her out of intensive care and into an ambulance and began to drive to the Americans,
who were just one kilometre away. But when the ambulance got within 300 metres, they began to shoot.
There wasn't even a chance to tell them `We have Jessica. Take her.'"
"She was in pretty bad shape. There was blunt
trauma, resulting in compound fractures of the left femur
(upper leg) and the right humerus (upper arm). And also a deep laceration on her head," Houssona said.
"Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
The search for these weapons will be difficult and lengthy, but ultimately successful.
Iraq's the size of the state of California. It's got tunnels, caves, all kinds of complexes."
-- The self-proclaimed "president" of the United States
"We believe you ...and we trust you. You're
a great president, and we won't ask about
bin Laden or Saddam or anthrax or the missing surplus or the stolen 2000 election or
the no-longer-applicable Bill of Rights. We know you'd never mislead us just to stay in power."

You published an email in issue 1058 praising
the anagram generator from issue 144, and it reminded me
of a few classics discovered by author Robert Anton Wilson (from his book "Cosmic Trigger, volume II"):
"Ronald Wilson Reagan" can be rearranged to spell
"Insane Anglo Warlord," and "George Herbert Walker Bush"
becomes "Huge Berserk Rebel Warthog." Thought you'd dig that.
"This is a-just another demonstration, I think,
of President Bushís courage,
that if these young men and women are out there defending our country can
face this sort of risk, then President Bush should be able to face this similar risk.
-- --Congressman Jim Gibbons of Nevada, Countdown with Keith Olbermann
Wait, you mean a little boy playing pretend pilot off the San
Diego coast is "just like"

We finally rented it, and it could have been a good movie.
Holy Koresh! Give me Tom Hanks and Paul Newman and $60 million
and I'll bet I could deliver a movie that people would actually enjoy seeing.
What were they thinking?
Did they sign up before reading the script?
You'd think giants like Hanks and Newman could have their pick of scripts, and this is
the script they chose? On purpose? Or were they being blackmailed by someone?
Odds are you haven't seen this movie - nobody has - so I won't
give away the ending,
but I would've rather seen a boring, saw-it-coming traditional Hollywood ending than
the let's-strangle-Bambi ending we get from director Sam Mendes.
I'll tell you, I'm no movie expert, but if they're going to invest
$60 million in a movie, it would
be worth their money to send me a copy as they're doing post and get my don't-know-much,
man-on-the-street opinion because they took what was already a pretty dark film and then
they hit it over the head, dragged it into an alley and beat it up with that attrocious ending.

While the Nazi totalitarianism strove to give the masses a sense of collective power and strength,
Kraft durch Freude ("Strength through joy"), inverted totalitarianism promotes a sense of weakness,
of collective futility. While the Nazis wanted a continuously mobilized society that would not only
support the regime without complaint and enthusiastically vote "yes" at the periodic plebiscites,
inverted totalitarianism wants a politically demobilized society that hardly votes at all.
"I have to say, in the current President Bushís
defense, he was a pilot.
I mean, it wasnít like the typical avoiding the military service by serving in the National Guard.
-- Ann Coulter, pretending rich, connected boys went to Vietnam.
Oh, wait, that's right.
Al Gore went to Vietnam while Smirk protected Midland from the Viet Cong
"He was a pilot in the National Guard. He was
training to be a pilot. Itís a dangerous National Guard duty.
If the Vietnam war had continued, he would have gone to the Vietnam war as a pilot, so - I mean, he is a pilot,
though he was not - he did not serve in wartime."
--Ann Coulter on Hardballs with The Screamer
Ann, ...Ann, ... ...Ann!!
Could you stop doing that long enough to
listen to the truth?
(By the way, why don't you get married or something and stop with the clowns?)
Your hero trained on a "P-type" airplane.
Let's see, "F" is for fighters, "B" is for bombers, what's a "P" for, ...puta?
Since he was rich, connected and stupid, they agreed to train him to fly a plane that was so old,
...everybody, "...How ...old ...was it?"
His plane was so old, they no longer made spare parts for it, ensuring he'd never see Vietnam, no matter what.
I can't understand why the men missing an
eye, an arm or a leg cheer the rich little snot who's daddy BOUGHT him
a spot in an already-full Air National Guard Unit.
...just to be sure I have it right - Clinton
is bad because he tried to stop the war, and Bush is a war hero because
his rich daddy bought a safe and cushy assignment from which he deserted to get drunk and get laid in Mexico.
Do I have it right?
Facts from Baghdad
as of Saturday, May 3
In Baghdad, the city is without law or government, and is overrun by armed gangs,
bombs and landmines, including cluster bombs, have killed or maimed
more people in northern Iraq since the end of the war than during the fighting.
Maybe I'm stupid, (good chance even,) but how does an unexploded bomb hurt people?
The humanitarian situation is now 'critical' in some parts of Iraq
"Nobody looks right in the role Bush has set
for the presidency-commander-in-chief, medium height,
medium build, looks good in a jet pilotís costume (ha ha) -or uniform, rather-has a certain swagger,
not too literary, certainly not too verbal, but a guy who speaks plainly and wins wars."
--Chris Matthews, Countdown with Keith Olbermann
Chris, so much bullshit, so little time - where to start?
First, we should NOT pick our leaders by height and weight
and bullshit photo ops.
We should pick them on brains, integrity and their non-willingness to take over the world.
Second, yes, they gave the Bush boy a pilot's costume to wear to the party on the big boat.
Third, yes, that silly snot has a swagger that most people
call "an ugly smirk."
That's why the Manchester Leader, a right-wing New Hampshire paper, dubbed him, "Governor Smirk."
Fourth, you're right, it takes brains to form a coherent sentence - this chimp has none.
Fifth, if we had trained Bush's dog Barney (You have to look real close)
...to bark once for "Let's roll,"
and twice for "Let's give the sanctions a chance,"
we were still going to win that war, no matter what, probably with fewer casualties.
The reason Clinton wasn't a "war hero," is because we were at peace,
because unlike President Monthlong Vacations, Clinton defended the Homeland.
Chris, in closing, three questions:
1. Why are you such an unmitigated whore for this appointed fraud?
2. How big is your monthly check from the B.F.E.E.?
3. Why do you tell people you're still a liberal?

Hires Christian Extremists to Produce Arabic News
Would we expect anything else?
The U.S. government this week launched its Arabic language satellite TV news station for mostly
Muslim Iraq. It is being produced in a studio Ė Grace Digital Media Ė controlled by fundamentalist
Christians who are rabidly pro-Israel. That's grace as in "by the grace of God."
Grace Digital Media is controlled by a fundamentalist
Christian millionaire, Cheryl Reagan, who last year
wrested control of Federal News Service, a transcription news service, from its former owner,
Cortes Randell. Randell says he met Reagan at a prayer meeting, brought her in as an investor in Federal
News Service, and then she forced him out of his own company.
I wish writers would quit trying to "be fancy" and just tell us
what the hell happened.
This says she "wrested control" from the owner and forced him out - what the hell does that mean?
She stole it?
She wrote a check?
She bought the stock?
She had the real owner shot and stuffed in a trunk?

L'affaire Daschle/Gingrich is just exhibit A of how our politics are now being driven by a toxic combination
of jingoism, self-righteousness and nearly divine faith in the rectitude of a President who has cast off the
traditional strictures of consensus politics in favor of a no-holds-barred assault on those who stand in
the way of his extremist agenda. To question the path of the President is to invite immediate accusations
of naïveté at best, disloyalty at worst--and most often both.
What is to be done? Well, plenty, in the
But in the short run, how about at least fighting back?
All the Democrats have going for them these days are the issues
--if only they would stand up for a few of them.
Eric, they are Democrats.
They're too scared and awestruck by Bush's "greatness" to fight back.
They'd rather lose in 2004 than fight this monster and his jack-booted goon squad.
"Goon squad? Hmmm, it mught be time
for some regime change at bartcop.com "
"Bush joined the Air Guard back when he was
out of college. This guy flew these kinds of planes."
--Chris the Screamer
No Chris, he didn't fly "these" kinds of planes.
He didn't fly anything that's used in 2003, and I'm sure, because he didn't fly the planes
that were used when he flew the out-of-date planes back in 1971.
We don't know that he actually flew any damn plane at all - do we?
You can't be a moron with zero communications skills and get a
license to fly a plane.
If you tell the tower you're coming in on the runway "that makes the pie higher,"
you're probably going to die, and since that didn't happen - I doubt he ever actually flew.
"This guy is used to wearing this uniform because he did it for a living for a while."
Yeah, nearly 3/4 of the time he was in the service, he wore the uniform
"And the fact is, he is who he is. He didnít make himself."
Correct, that's why Mr. Rove is in charge.
"He didnít design himself as a softspoken, simple-vocabulary kind of guy. Thatís who he is."
Hold it, hold it.
The guy who screamed, "motherfucker" in a drunken rage at Al Hunt in a Dallas restaurant is "soft-spoken?
is that what you meant to say, Chris? Or did you mean that Bush screams less loudly than you?
And how about that "Fuck Saddam, we're
taking him out," comment?
Is that what a soft-spoken man of God says in front of reporters?
"George W. Bush doesnít speak in a complicated fashion. Heís a very basic, clear-thinking guy..."
Oh Christ, show me the evidence that he's a 'clear thinker.'
Did he remember your nickname, Chris? Is that what makes him a clear-thinker?"
"...who goes to bed at 9:30 with his wife. Heís not complicated. Heís not a problem."
Correct. The problem is the dying economy, the loss
of democracy, the destruction of the Bill of Rights,
the suspension of the Constitution, the secrecy, the appointment of CONVICTED FELONS to control
Homeland Security, the loss of trees, clear air and clean water, the Treasury being down TEN TRILLION
since the Commander in Thief stole his way to power, the Corrupt Supreme Court, crooked Diebold voting machines,
Cheney and Rummy's plans to control the oil in the Middle East and the fresh water in southern California.
So you're right, Chris - Bush isn't complicated, Bush isn't the
The crime cartel crooks he fronts for, the rich bastards who raped the Constitution, are the problem
"He is George W. Bush. And I think the beauty
of the guyís presidency is itís so custom-made for him.
Heís designed a presidency to be him, and I think thatís clear."
--Chris the Screamer, Countdown with Keith Olbermann
Wrong again, Chris.
Bush couldn't design a plan to get a condom over his penis when he raped that 15-year old Houston girl.
Screamer, you're nothing but a GOP tool. I think you should
have "GOP Tool,"
tattooed on your forehead, so you can remember which side you're on.

taken hold of our government.
One of the worst is they'll take everything and then try to take even more.
They're not happy controlling the White House, the Senate, the
House, the military,
the Treasury, the Supreme Court and the appointment of future judges - that's not enough.
They want a lot more than that.
They want your children's futures, too, they want all radio and
TV programming to go thru Mr Rove
and worst of all, they expect us to say, "Thank you. May I have another?" after each attack.

A great story from Marty at
Drove to just over the AZ border to meet
up with dear old Dad & the Babe.
All went well, and a long told family tale was proved true, to boot.
There's a privately run museum along the
way, east of Palm Springs (which Sonny Bono
accurately referred to as 'Death's waiting room'), that honors George Patton.
Dad (his name is Sam Guaglianone) was one
of 20 guys that were part of the 12th Corp - the frontline
accountants, for lack of a better phrase, and he was the kid (& the hick) of the group.
Initially the 12th Corp was Omar Bradley's, but ended up with Patton on the march to the Rhine.
When pressed, Dad had a story about Patton
wanting to piss in the Rhine.
And how Dad was busted for taking a picture of the occasion.
Back in the 80's, I came across a story
in 'Spy' magazine about Bob Hope's house
& how one of his most prized possessions was a picture of Patton pissing in the Rhine.
Turns out there's also a copy of it at the Patton museum.
So, the weekend turned out much cooler than ever anticipated.
General George Patton urinates in the Rhine
River before his 3rd Army crosses.

to reach the Lincoln by chopper which was waaaaay out to sea.
It was 39 miles out.

Spying Puts Twist on Jefferson Saga
Racists sabotage blacks, preserve a "calm and civilized" gathering
The wife of a Thomas Jefferson family association official said Friday that she
masqueraded as a 67-year-old black woman on an Internet chat room in a bid to
keep descendants of a reputed Jefferson mistress out of last weekend's family reunion.
"It might have been somewhat unethical," said
Paulie Abeles of Washington, D.C.,
who participated for eight months in the Yahoo! message board created for
relatives of Jefferson slave Sally Hemings.
"It might have been childish, but I really
think I was working in the best interest of the
majority of the family members to make the reunion a calm and civilized gathering," she said.
Comment: Those blacks can get so excited and be so uncivilized,
especially after being raped by their owners.
For the sake of calmness and civility for the majority, they should be excluded from their heritage.
In May 2002 the Monticello Association (descendants of Thomas Jefferson) voted to
not admit descendants of Sally Hemings into their organization. The decision came after
their careful review of all available information resulting in the conclusion that there was
not sufficient evidence to prove Jefferson fathered Hemings' children.

Subject: IRS refunding Lying Corporations
There seem to be a growing numbers of instances
where corporate fraudsters are actually

Paying taxes on false income was neccesary

million back from the IRS,
Qwest is expected to ask for money back as well, others are likely lining up...

You corporations LIED about earnings to inflate
the value of your stock, many top execs reaped huge bonuses in conjunction with those inflated
stock values, and in order to validate your earnings claims, you paid taxes to the IRS (must not have
been Andersen clients).. then when the shit hit the fan and the ruse was discovered, you asked for
the tax money back...and the IRS said...OK...?!!"
This is such a lovely precedent to set.
"Hey !!!...you gave Worldcom their money back, we want ours!"
