"300 bigots and lunatics protesting around
a carved rock, worthy of nonstop coverage.
100,000 people protesting a war, worthy of brief snide commentary."
The size and scope of the government contracts awarded to Halliburton in connection with the war
in Iraq are significantly greater than was previously disclosed and demonstrate the U.S. military's
increasing reliance on for-profit corporations to run its logistical operations. Independent experts
estimate that as much as one-third of the monthly $3.9 billion cost of keeping U.S. troops in Iraq
is going to independent contractors.
Trust me, the figure is ten times that.
If they're admitting to a billion, it's going to be ten billion before it's over.
...and that's fine by the Democrats.
"I'm loosening up and getting ready for the

Voting machine controversy
The head of a company vying to sell voting machines in Ohio told Republicans in a recent fund-raising
letter that he is "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year."
The Aug. 14 letter from Walden O'Dell, chief
executive of Diebold Inc. - who has become active in
the re-election effort of President Bush - prompted Democrats this week to question the propriety of
allowing O'Dell's company to calculate votes in the 2004 presidential election.
Are we really living in a world where the
Democrats are so f-ing limp, that they won't insist on free elections?
This Monkey Bush can't lose an election sponsored by GOP-owned Diebold.
Why have Democrats abandoned the one-man,
one vote principle?
Why do Democrats bow to the illegal dictaor when he pees on the Constitution?

"Bush is using Minnesota as a political ATM
machine. Bush has deposited quite a bit
of money giving 40 percent of his tax breaks to the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans
and is withdrawing some of that today."
--Sen. Mark Dayton, at a State Capitol news conference, Attribution
The Durham Hilton recently issued written rules barring students at N.C. Central University,
a historically black school, from using the hotel's front door, an act NCCU's chancellor called "unconscionable."
"It [is] really unconscionable that in 2003
our students are being asked to use a side and rear entrance," he said.
"That's not what I expected from the people we're doing business with in the city of Durham." "
We can't let this stand, can we?
I called the Durham Hilton, (919-383-8033) asked for a spokesman
and I got "Terry," who sounded black.
He said that was not the case, but he would have no further comment. I asked him to verify that the
"Herald Sun" was his local newspaper, and, after a few more "I can't say" replies, he admitted it was.
I tried the paper and the reporter, but nobody answers the phone anymore.
this story is true, I don't think Hilton would want this kind of publicity.
"What's wrong with darkies using the back door?"
Bush's sheer incompetence is impossible to overstate. The bad news and the lies just keep on coming. Yesterday,
we learned that the U.S. budget deficit will reach a record $480 billion for this fiscal year. 2001 Nobel Prize-winning
economist George Akerloff told the German magazine Der Spiegel "this is the worst government the US has ever had
in its more than 200 years of history." He described Bush's save-the-rich tax cuts as "is a form of looting" that will
bankrupt the treasury. It was also recently revealed that the White House pressured the Environmental Protection
Agency to suppress findings of deadly toxins in the atmosphere in lower Manhattan after 9/11 for fear public warnings
would damage the economy. Between dollars and lives, Bush chose the bottom line.
In Iraq, there have now been more American
soldiers killed since Bush's theatrical aircraft carrier landing off San
than before he announced the end of combat. More than two dozen have died since the president left Washington to
spend time roping and branding golf carts on his Texas ranch earlier this month.
On his daily show, The O'Reilly Factor, he uses it as a place-holder for an idea still formulating in his brain.
As a way to begin a sentence, end it, or punctuate it. Sometimes he says "shut up" with fury, eyes bulging.
When he's being dismissive, he delivers it offhandedly and without real malice. Other times he says it gently,
with a minxlike twinkle in his eye, signaling to all the world that he's just being frisky.
God Bart even for an Okie you are dense.
I told you before and I'll say it again,
Put that PC shit down and buy a powerMac. Do that and all your computer problems will cease.
For example there has never been a successful Mac virus.
Now I'm going to repeat that again for those

Put that cactus juice down boy, twist up a big fat doobie and get thee hence to the Mac store!

Remember the BartCop Quiz?
It had many versions, but the premise was always the same:
If you're brave enough to answer the question, I'll force you to agree with me.
Some attorneys apparently don't read bartcop.com and haven't learned that lesson.
On Wednesday's Crossfire, James Carville was back from
vacation and ready to attack.
Talking about the Alabama fiasco, Carville asked an attorney for two church groups if he
would object to having the Koran or Buddha or The Scientologists erecting a monument.
This crazy lawyer screwed up and answered the question:
From the transcript:
Carville: We are joined by Brian Chavez-Ochoa, the lawyer who brought the case against
those who wanted to remove the tablet. Counselor, I would assume that if somebody wanted
to put a statue of Buddha or translations from the Quran or the Church of Scientology or anything
else, that you would represent them with the same vigor as you do (your current clients?)
Chavez-Ochoa: Well, as to those religions,
they have a right under the First Amendment
to have those displays brought forth. So the answer to that question is yes.
Swear to Koresh - did he really say that? He wouldn't
mind of the Scientologists planting
a 5,000 pound monument to whatever slice of insanity the Scientologists are into inside
the courthouse of some Alabama county?
If you're going to take a really extreme point of view, you damn
well better not answer
a question like Carville posed, because what's next? What if John Linde Walker wants
to erect a statue of Osama, because he claims Osama is "The Prophet?"
What power does the government have to tell you which Gods are
"real" and which aren't?
If I was that lawyer, defending an undefendable position, I would answered some kind of
gobbledegook like, "But there's only one true God, Our Lord Jesus Christ."
When your position can't hold water, you have to fudge on questions
But the second you say "Bring 'em on" to every crazy religion, you will then have monuments
to snake-handlers, Shirley Manson, The Number 6, Osama, Tiger Woods - the list is endless.
As bartcop.com readers knew years ago, the
way out of this quagmire is to say,
"No religious quackery on city, state or federal property - period."
Once again, the crazies can't see we're protecting them!
If somebody puts up a statue to Osama, some veteran is going to
blow it up.
Then the Osama guy will find out about it, so he'll be obliged to blow up a Christian church,
than all of a sudden America becomes one giant pile of Ich bin ein Baghdadders.

Madonna and Britney get busy on the MTV Awards.
I about came out of my chair when I saw this. (cough)
A second later, Madonna turned and gave Christine Aguilera some, too, but nobody saw it
because the stupid director thought it would be best to cut to Justin Timberlake for a reaction.
Years ago, I smuggled a video camera into a Robert Plant concert,
and people said it was
the best video they'd ever seen of him. My secret? You keep the camera on the star.
Too bad MTV doesn't have a director as qualified as Bart. Hell, they even knew it was coming,
but like every Blue Angels flyover at a football game, they missed the action when it happened.
Chris Rock was crude and damn funny. "Why

Justin said others deserve his award more than he did, just like last year.
Eminem made news with a puppet, just like last year.

Reasons Of National Security
by W. O. Coach
After promising us "open and honest" government
during campaign 2000, the Bush administration
has descended into the most deceitful and dishonest government in living memory.
From Cheney's stonewalling the details and
names of his energy policy, the sealing of Presidential papers,
the 9/11 Commission report, to just about every other embarrassing revelation they don't want you to
know about, the White House offers that less than believable justification, that it's for reasons of national security.
But even more remarkable just this week,
was claiming it was for reasons of national security that the
White House ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to lie to New Yorkers by assuring them
their air quality was safe after 9/11 when clearly they knew it wasn't. This deceitful bunch even lies to us
about our air for gawd's sake.
Now, if the White House had claimed they
sent Bush home on vacation for 35 days even though
he's got two active wars going for reasons of national security, well, one could certainly buy into that.
After all, the less time he's on the job, the less harm he can do.
Weekly Standard vs. BuzzFlash & Sid Blumenthal: Part I
"It's like having a blind, brain-damaged parakeet as president. All the Chickenhawk Neo-Con "endless war"
advisors sit around the parakeet and recommend war, deregulation, rollback of environmental protections,
government contracts for campaign contributors, making America into an official Christian state, and so forth.
Because the parakeet is mentally deficient, he keeps nodding his head all the time. The advisers interpret his
nodding head as approval for their destructive plans. The Bush corporate media shills prop up the parakeet
by insisting that his head nods are proof of his decisiveness and wisdom. This is what passes for good
government with the Republicans and their media enablers!"
Having lost his battle with Al Franken, Rupert Murdioch is now
going after Buzzflash and Sid?
When does bartcop.com get gone after?
Thanks for taking a few days off.
I feel a lot better now.

Bart's right arm
"You have to understand that since September 11, the United States cannot allow the most terrible
weapons in the world to be in the hands of the worst regimes in the world," Perle told Le Figaro.
To date, no such weapons have been found.
"Today, the answer is to hand over power to the
Iraqis as soon as possible," he added..
Hey Perley, does that mean Iraq gets to do their own oil accounting?
Or do you have "people" ...that can handle that for them?
Perhaps the only hope lies in the story going around town that President Bush
has told the Pentagon he wants "no more American dead" after next March.
That's just breathtakingly outrageous, isn't
The Bloodthirsty bastard doesn't want any dead soldiers - during his campaign.
He doesn't give a damn about the dead soldiers until they harm his run for the White House.
I'll tell you - I don't like the son of a bitch at all.
Thanks to Norma.

Bart, I've read your page for four years,
since the days of RLLNW, but
after this e-mail goes out, I'm removing you from my bookmarks.
I'm sure a lost fan now and then isn't a
big deal, and I know lots of people
have vowed never to read your site again over this or that remark you've made.
This isn't about that.
I tried -- really tried -- to bring a voice
of reason to your mini-debate
over the atomic bombings of Japan. That voice was evidently unwelcome,
otherwise it would have been heard and printed. It seems that conspiracy
theories trump the less sensational truth in BartCopLand, and for a guy
who spends his time professing to seek the truth, this strikes me as the
epitome of waving the double-standard. That really pisses me off.
So long, Bart. It's been a good run, and
I've enjoyed it, but it's time
for me to look elsewhere for my daily dose of liberal fist-pounding.
I'm getting more and more and more mail

Dude, I get 300-500 e-mails a day in just
the email@example.com mailbox.
Do you know anyone that can read that much mail AND spent 10-12 hours on their day job?
People assume a letter sent is a letter read.
It's got nothing to do with my preference
for "conspiracy theories."
Hell, I don't even know which side of that issue you're on.
I'm sure people make the same mistake with
the Middle East. I said, "Israel doesn't
target children," and got a hundred angry replies, most of which called me a liar and a Zionist tool.
Hopefully, the problem will get worse as we grow.
I guess I'll just continue to piss people off.

Subject: Frank Zappa on Church and State
From "The Real Frank Zappa Book"
Making a Mockery of the Founding Fathers
Let me close out this chapter with a note about one of Pat Robertson's more reprehensible activities:
rewriting American history with a 'Christian' bias. His 700 Club broadcasts have systematically disinformed
viewers as to the real attitudes of the Founding Fathers on religion and its relationship to government.
This seems to have been done in order to merchandise his peculiar vision of an America under the thumb
of religious regulators. (One broadcast suggested the deployment of a "Spirit-Filled Police Force" that
would just know-with the help of the Lord, of course-who the real criminals were.)
The revolutionaries who got this country started were not, as Robertson would have us believe,
a bunch of wig-headed Jeezo-Grovelers, whimpering for guidance from The Unseen Hand.
They had a First Amendment premonition about pimp-weasels like him. Speak up, boys...
"The United States
is in no sense founded upon the Christian doctrine."
"It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no god.
It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg."
"I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church,
by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church."
"I do not find in orthodox Christianity one redeeming feature."
"The Bible is not my book, and Christianity is not my religion.
I could never give assent to the long, complicated statements of Christian dogma."
(Quotes as listed in "Salvation for Sale", by Gerard Thomas Straub.)
"The view inside Fox News is that the suit
-- which called Franken "shrill" and "unstable,"
among other choice adjectives -- was a public relations train wreck that embarrassed the
network and boosted Franken's book, which is being rushed into stores to capitalize on the
publicity. These sources say that top executives, including Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes,
argued against the suit, but that O'Reilly was so loudly adamant that the network went along
to placate its prime-time star."

Pinhead: "Lookie me - I hit the trifecta,

Notice Clinton's lies didn't kill anybody, didn't keep hostages
bound and blindfolded,
didn't but a bonehead on the high court, didn't wreck the economy, didn't cause a bloody war,
yet ask the press who the bad president was and they'll screw Clinton and praise the bastards

Pepsi said they did not want to offend anyone. If this is true then we do not want to offend anyone at the
