"The President said two weeks ago on page one
of his budget report that we have a $455 billion deficit
at the end of next month; that's when the end of the fiscal year terminates. The truth of the matter is,
you turn to page 57 of the report and you'll see it's $698 billion. And he admits to a $700 billion deficit,
so you can see why the market goes down. Everyone sees who invests that there's no reason to invest
because the interest rates are going up and you can't carry your investments."
-- Fritz Hollings, telling the truth about America's worst serial killer
Even though Bush has refused to make parts of the 9-11 report public, one thing is startlingly clear:
The U.S. government had received repeated warnings of impending attacks—and attacks using planes
directed at New York and Washington—for several years. The government never told us about what
it knew was coming.
See for yourself. The report lists 36 different
summaries of warnings dating back to 1997. Among them:
Warning: This is The Village Voice, so you will be buried in moving, blinking spam pop-ups if you click.
You say the president has broken promises. Which ones?
"His environmental record is widely understood
to be probably the worst in most people’s lives.
His promise to create jobs—he lost jobs not created them. His promise of tax cuts in the middle class
—most people’s middle-class taxes went up because their property taxes increased. His promise that
he would make the next generation more financially secure. It certainly was the opposite of that.
He’s massed trillions of dollars’ worth of debt. The list goes on forever."
--Howard Dean, Newsweek
Texas Leg. Flap Explained
by Molly Ivins
Basically, the reason 11 Democratic senators from Texas are on the lam
in New Mexico is BECAUSE IT'S NOT FAIR.
You may think that's childish, but there
are some important principles at stake here.
Like, you're supposed to play by the rules. And you're not supposed to change the rules in the middle of the game.
And then, just a minor point, there is the small matter of democracy.
Subject: What the fuck is happening to you?
It's always nice to hear from a fan...
I'm a daily visitor who is an enormous fan
of your sharp wit, political foresight, and self-deprecation.
However, I'm becoming more and more concerned over a recent trend that has developed in your page's content.
You seem needlessly obsessed over the pop
culture media big tents in progress. Laci Peterson? Kobe Bryant?
Koresh, who really gives a fuck? I realize that these are everyday talking points of Joe Six-Pack, and they deserve
a mention for humor's sake, but you are off assigning reporters on these trivial distractions when there are much
more important tasks at hand.
Assign a reporter to look more deeply into
the Diebold voting machines, the TX re-districting stratagem,
the outer-space far right judicial nominees, or whether or not Ashcroft experimented with hebephilic
homosexuality in college (Ok, I made that up). But seriously Bart, you're a real inspiration for me,
and I'm having trouble dealing with a hero digressing into the utterly mundane.
Please, reverse course and re-examine your compass.
Derek, OK, why don't you keep an eye on
the Diebold story for us?
You seem to have a way with words...
The state of California announced their
intention to take a man's life without a murder weapon,
a crime scene, a motive, a witness and apparently hardly any forensic evidence.
I think that's an important story - we disagree on that.
The Kobe Bryant matter is so big, it seems
to be changing the way we look at rape and the "rules"
of covering a rape trial. Colorado has a history of weird justice, and it's a blond lady accusing
a black superstar with a clean reputation and an all-white jury. That looks like real news to me,
but apparently we disagree there, too.
I look forward to seeing your work.

I think he was ripping the Hard Rock, not

When he said, "there are people in this world stupid enough..."
he's calling people who are willing to pay extra to avoid Jose Cuervo "stupid."
I'll bet he's a Cuervo drinker.

I've noticed many seemingly-unrelated attempts
to "revive" the legend of Ronald Reagan,
including the christening of the new aircraft carrier named after him. PBS is showing a feature
about "Reagan in Hollywood," and there have been others.
Has anyone else noticed this, and how do
we bring the real truth to the public about him,
his policies and the forces that used him (and are now using GWB)? Any ideas?
Mark, I disagree.
Reagan is forgotten and he's been abandoned by the right.
In today's GOP, Bush is God, Reagan is a forgotten nobody.
That carrier was named years and years ago, it's just now coming online.
The PBS piece is filler they have to burn off.
Bush is the greatest president in history, and Reagan was a punk-ass,
The media is trying so damned hard to make the Drunk Deserter into another Lincoln.
Reagan doesn't even deserve a footnote, compared to the great
Hell, Reagan was such a piker, he never even tried to take over the world.

"I write this at my own peril. My Naderite
friends will tear me to pieces for saying what I'm about to say
but I have to say it. The single most important goal for all moderates, liberals, progressives, radicals and
libertarians in the next 16 months must be the defeat of Bush in the 2004 elections...Greens need to think
about what they are doing. We are in a different situation now than in 2000. We are not faced with an
unknown entity. We know exactly how the Bush administration runs things, and we need to stop them.
In key states like Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, the Green vote could play a key role.
Do you want to feel good because you voted for Ralph Nader or do you want to see somebody other
than Bush in the White House? Sure, if a Democrat wins, he or she won't be what you want and his
or her policies will make you mad -- but at least they won't make you afraid."
--Richard Coduri, Greens, grow up and vote Democratic
Will this plea do any good?
The Nader worshippers who write to me are so very proud that they put Bush in office, and they are f-ing giddy
at the thought that they can do it a second time. Ralph has convinced them that Al Gore was an evil oil man,
bent on taking over the world, ...and they fell for that lie.
I used to run this toon a lot.
How naive we were, thinking all Bush would do is ruin the environment.
Little did we know he'd create perpetual war and recesssion and
get hundreds of
brave men killed in a illegal and fake war that did nothing but make his friends rich.
Thanks, Nader voters...
Fortunately, "Treason" eschews the scandalous violent reveries for which Coulter's become known.
For example: "In this recurring nightmare of a presidency, we have a national debate about whether
Clinton 'did it,' even though all sentient people know he did. Otherwise there would be debate only
about whether to impeach or assassinate."
Sweet Home Becomes Lord of the Flies

Our kitchen used to be relatively clean. Now every surface is covered with some unidentifiable sticky substance.
We don't know what it is, but we notice that the children leave a trail of it wherever they go, like snails.
Our floors used to be uncluttered. Now there
are approximately 752,000 crayons spread across them at any given time.
We leap our way across them from room to room like loggers on logs floating downriver. And we hardly ever fall. Ha ha!

Mike Tyson's Bankruptcy
At 37, Tyson's boxing skills are diminishing, and so is his earning power; he could once command $30 million
for a night's work. His future earnings and the future proceeds from the sale of a Connecticut mansion will go
to pay a $9 million divorce settlement to his ex-wife, Monica Turner. She also has a lien on Tyson's Las Vegas
estate, which is beside Wayne Newton's. And now, much as he ardently hammered at his opponents' jaws,
Tyson's creditors will pursue his asset

I know Mike Tyson is an incorrigible animal, but don't you think
if he'd had some guidance,
some father figure to show him the ropes, he could've turned out a whole lot different?
I saw him on Carson Daly last night, and deep down, I can tell
he's a human being.
It's sad to see a man self-implode before the cameras...

- Sex and the City, Episode #80 "Hop, Skip And A Week"
by Midnight Warner
You can never get enough sex and if you're
like me you can never get
enough city either, so you know where my weaknesses lie.
In this episode of Sex and the City something
happens to Carrie that happens to us all
at one point or another – she gets called to jury duty. And, oh yeah, she gets dumped.
She gets dumped in a very bad way too.
It's just not working out between Carrie
and her frustrated novelist boyfriend. He can't stand
her success and thinks that every little thing she says to him is an insult. Really, she should have
dumped him but, alas, he ditches her and that is often the way of the world. However, in a not-so-subtle
move by the writers, Carrie "unexpectedly" gets a call from the love/pain-of-her life, Big.
Could the producers be setting us up for
A little too blatantly for my taste but we'll just have to watch and find out.
Waspy Charlotte is still a Jew and
that apparently means, at least for this episode, she has to be
set up with loser men by Jewish mothers. However, her one-and-only Jew takes her back big time,
as Dick Cheney would say, and asked Charlotte if she'll marry him. She and her Jew are making
arrangements with the a Chinese restaurant right now. (Note, that was just an obscure Jackie Mason reference.)
Miranda has to cut back at work, down to as little as 50 to 55 hours a week, so she can be with her baby more often.
Samantha has a lot of sex. (So what's
new?) And her management of her hunky actor's/sex buddies career
is doing quite well. Samantha, with protest from Smith, has him pose for an Absolute ad with nothing but a
bottle strategically placed over a certain body part. Now he's playing a junkie model in a movie.
Will Miranda and Steve and Carrie and Big
finally get together? Will Charlotte continue to make a convincing Jew?
Will Samantha ever get tired? Tune in next week and find out.

"Mr. Bush's carefully recited comments about the ‘true' cause of America's economic grief are pretty amazing,
even for Mr. Bush, after he, Mr. Cheney, Mr. Rumsfeld, all the President's men, and Condi Rice spent the
entire year before the Iraq war carefully and progressively ramping up public panic over the mountain of hard
evidence they assured us they had about the deadly Iraqi ‘weapons of mass destruction.' Even Tony Blair was
convinced, and it may cost him his job. One could have deduced that Saddam Hussein was about to nuke us all.
America HAD to act, even if the wimps at the UN wouldn't. The danger was that great. One could almost feel
the fallout from those damned Iraqi nukes sapping our precious bodily fluids."
Letter to the Editor
For years, the worst nightmare of the conservatives
was that when the baby boomers
began to take power, the country would end up with a president who was a draft-dodging,
drug-addled deserter who would wreck the economy and bankrupt the government with deficit spending.
When I think of the money and effort the
conservatives put into getting Bush into the presidency,
I am appalled at the lengths some people will go, just to be right.

He voted against Chimpy's Vanity war,
has stated publicly that Bush's State of the Union lie-fest meets current standards
of impeachable offense, and loves to refer to "Osama bin Forgotten".
What's a poor boy gotta do to please ol' Bartcop?
I agree, and I've said Dean and Graham are the two who've spoken
but Dean bought TV time in Texas to call Bush a fraud. So far, Dean is the man.

Kathleen here from Ruskin FL. I try to pull
up bartcop at different public libraries and find that
the installed filters often block the site.(I think it is those old pix of Dr. Laura...they made you unfit).
Laura the Unloved should be blocked, not Ol' Bart
We librarians went all the way to the Supreme
Court to get rid of the things (American Library Association)
but we lost....but maybe not...one aspect of the decision said that while all the computers in public libraries
now have to be filtered ANY ADULT CAN ASK FOR A NON-FILTERED COMPUTER.
So, bartcoppers go out and try to pull up
bartcop...if it's blocked they ask for unfiltered.
There are lots of different filters used. We could have a bartcop day, fan out to different libraries,
then protest. Marc Perkel can probably explain the filtering thing. I mean it might be interesting.
