 Latin America The World Has Dismal View of Bush 

  Click  Here

 Latin Americans have a dismal opinion of Bush after he ignored world opinion to wage war in Iraq,
 and against a backdrop of mistrust over U.S. aims in pushing for regional free trade, a poll shows.

 In Brazil, Latin America's largest country, 98 percent gave the U.S. leader a negative mark.

 In Mexico, just 5 percent gave Bush positive grades.

 "I think there are questions as to whether the United States is a good trade partner or not, but I think
 there's also a broader context," said John Zogby (R-ForSale), president of pollsters Zogby International.

"This is part of the fallout over the war in Iraq. Not only are we not a good trade partner but we are also
 a country that's willing to go it alone on a major venture and not try to win trust with our traditional allies."

 Who do other countries hate us so much?
 Because they have a FREE PRESS and they've been told the truth about the Illegal Oil Hardon.


"You can see why they wanted Henry Kissinger ..."

 What I wouldn't give to turn on the nightly news and see a clip of Bush saying how
 the press only focuses on the negatives and not the positives, such as schools and
 hospitals being opened, and electricity being  turned on.

 And then to have Tom Brokaw or Dan Rather or whoever say, flatly and truthfully,
"Unfortunately, opening schools and hospitals and turning on the electricity were never
 cited as justifications for going to war in Iraq. Nuclear weapons were.  Those, of course,
 have not been found."

 I swear to Christ, twenty years from now I'll still be hearing some dipshit talk about
 how we went to Iraq and opened up the schools.

 Ricky, today I heard Dipshit Hannity blame California's fires on Bill Clinton.
 Twenty years from now, Clinton will be the cause of those problems, too.

 Attack on U.S. Tank Kills 2 GIs in Iraq

  Click  Here

 Two American soldiers were killed when their Abrams battle tank was damaged by resistance fighters,
  as the number of U.S. soldiers killed in combat since major fighting ended topped the wartime total.

 The latest deaths bring to 115 the number of American soldiers killed in combat in Iraq since Swaggerboy
 declared an end to major fighting May 1. Defense Department figures - updated on its Web site Tuesday
  - show 114 U.S. soldiers died in the active combat phase, which began March 20.

 "Bring 'em on!!
  We're not scared!
  We're staying!"

 Courtney wacky on the junk - just like Rush

  Click  Here

 Los Angeles prosecutors today charged Courtney Love with illegally possessing Hydrocodone and Oxycodone.
 A two-count felony complaint, a copy of which you'll find below, was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court (the drug
 charges stem from Love's apparent October 2 overdose at her Beverly Hills home). It is unclear if officers found the
 painkillers in the 39-year-old singer's home or actually on Love, who surrendered to cops this morning and was later
 released on $20,000 bail. Love is already facing a misdemeanor count of being under the influence of "opiates and cocaine,"
 a charge stemming from an incident that occurred hours before her OD. She was arrested after police were summoned
 to an L.A. home where Love had allegedly broken several windows. (2 pages)

 So, the rocker gets arrested and the Republican gets a free pass?
 Why isn't the vulgar junkie charged with possessing Hydrocodone and Oxycodone?
 The fact that he's addicted to those drugs means his body possesses massive quantities of both.

 Where is the justice?



 I called my good friend Larry-by-the-Sea, (D-PokerKing) who lives southern California.

 He wasn't in - he's on vacation.
 I knew that - but who can keep up?
 I asked the receptionist if they had any close calls. She said no, but the air was hard to breathe
 and the stench of burning everything was all over everywhere all of the time.

 Man, that's f-ed up.
 It wouldn't have happened if Bill had been honest about Monica from the start..
 Just ask any talk radio show host or some squeeling piglet on FOX News.

 Subject: Peak Oil

 I think what "Mark Berns" means by 'peak oil' is this:

 There is a finite amount of oil in the world.
 Much, if not all, the easy oil to get has been gotten.
 As more oil is taken, oil becomes more scarce, and the cost of finding new oil increases.
 Thus, the cost of oil increases

 Guy F

 When we run out of oil, the world will be forced to use other, cheaper, cleaner energy.
 If the winner of the 2000 election had been allowed to take office, we'd be headed there now.
 But BIG oil spent hundreds of millions to force the Unelected Clown into office, and he make sure
 America stays addicted to dirty, blood-spilling oil to pad their coffers to make the rich richer.

 Subject:Liberal Media

 I've been waiting and waiting to listen and view to Al Gore's commentary.
 I heard a short sentence on TV that said in effect, Gore would be TV. as talk show host.
 Where are they, i.e., Donahue, Gore, Huffington, Ivins, MMoore..?

 None are heard. (Donahue was great, but alas, too liberal for the media advertisers?)
 Result propaganda from the right-wing, it works, money, government marriage to military,
 99% of "communication" are mirroring the Fascists in WW11.  . Still waiting for a liberal voice....

 Recently changed my voting registration from Independent to Democrat. Can't stomach what
 has happened in this country in the last few years. I'm 75 years old. Obviously, would like to see
 and hear at least ONE (Donahue was dropped) liberal voice before I leave the world to an apparent
 bunch of sheep, who, like the German people supported Adolf.

 Up to 15,000 people killed in Bush's fake war

  Click  Here

"As many as 15,000 Iraqis were killed in the first days of America's invasion and occupation of Iraq,
 Up to 4,300 of the dead were civilian noncombatants.  The report, by Project on Defence Alternatives,
 offers the most comprehensive account so far of how many Iraqis died...

 Many of the recent wars have been fought with the notion of a new type of warfare that produce very low
 civilian casualties. What we see here is that in fact we don't have that magic bullet," he said.

'In this war in particular we see that improved capabilities in precision attacks have been used to pursue
 more ambitious objectives rather than achieve lower numbers of civilian dead.'"

 Most 9-11 Workers Still Ailing 

  Click  Here

 Most ground zero workers still suffer from health problems two years after Sept. 11
 and many do not have health insurance or job security, doctors told a congressional panel Tuesday.

 Several of the workers testified at a Manhattan hospital before the committee, saying they had trouble
 breathing, suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and no longer had the strength to do their old jobs.

 "I can't tell you how hard it is living like this," said David Rapp, a construction worker who spent five
 months at the World Trade Center site and now always carries an oxygen tank and uses three inhalers.
 "The fear of  not being able to take my next breath is unbearable."

 It all goes back to Bush, but the media and the GOP are still blaming Clinton for this.
 Bush threatened the Taliban and put bin Laden in a "All in" position.  Bush allowed this to happen after
 another month-long vacation, then he lied and had the EPA announce that the air was perfectly fine to breathe.
 When Hillary and Schumer called Bush on his lies that keep on killing like a murderous Energizer Bunny,
 the GOP and Bush's good puppy press said it was "another example of Hillary's hatred."

 I have been wondering for a while:

 Does george go down to Andrews AFB to meet the incoming C-17 every night?
 The hospital flight from Ramstein with the critically wounded bound for Walter Reed?
 The ones missing arms and legs?

 It seems the body armor protects the torso, but not the arms, legs, hands, feet.
 Does george go down to Dover AFB to meet the hearse flight?
 The one bringing back the boys in body bags bound for home?

 Ken & Becky

 I know Bush has been to Walter Reed Hospital at least once,
 but you won't see him at any funerals of the brave soldiers he got killed.
 He's too busy emptying the Treasury and playing Game Boy.

 Don't you find the White House's new "I can't believe we have to revisit these issues about the war
 simply because we have been caught lying at every turn" campaign a bit difficult to swallow?

 This war is about as defensible as Bush's FDA's challenge of Illinois' plan to supply seniors with
 cheaper prescription drugs from Canada.

 The FDA implied that Canadian drugs might not be as safe as US prescriptions of the exact same products.
 Isn't this how the protection racket works? The thug shows up and says. "I would hate if something happened
 because of your unwise decision not to carry my product at my price."

"The assertion by the President that daily attacks on US troops and innocent Iraqi civilians is 'progress' is ridiculous
  and just as false and misleading as his prewar statements about the threat posed to the United States by Iraq.

"Mr. President, 353 dead American troops is not progress. Thousands of American soldiers injured is not progress.
  And, the daily attacks on U.S. troops and innocent Iraqi civilians is not progress.

 Bush's Medicare Plan Seeks to Move Seniors into Private Plans, 
 He's taking care of BIG Drugs, and to hell with the people who need the medicine

  Click  Here

 Bush has consistently expressed support for Medicare, saying, "Medicare is the binding commitment of a caring society."
 But the President's own administrator of the program called it "an unbelievable disaster," and told Congress earlier this year
 that his Medicare plan would, in fact, move up to 50% of seniors into private plans.

 Bush's plan requires the purchase of prescription drugs through private insurers. A new study shows that drug prices
 could be negotiated at 40% savings below retail if Medicare were able to offer a prescription drug benefit directly.

 Subject: Correction to your site

 At this link, http://www.bartcop.com/convictions.htm  you list convictions of Raegan and Bush I people,
 but lists that no one was convicted in connection with the Whitewater investigation.

 In reality, there was 12 convictions related to Whitewater and there are still three outstanding convictions.
 It is fine to show the bad things about the President you don't like and just forget to mention the things
 about the one you do like, but to say there was no convictions in relation to Whitewater is just plain wrong.

 By the way, also during the Clinton administration, there was six convictions on another independent counsil
 dealing with Agriculture Secretary Mike Espey.

 So much for the thoery that all the "bad guys" worked for Raegan or Bush.

 I really suggest you check this site out.  It lists the convictions of all administration people since
 the Independent Counsil was created in 1978, whether Democrat or Republican.


 Bo, there is a difference between what I published and what you read.
 You said I published: "That no one was convicted in connection with the Whitewater investigation."

 That's not what was said:
 Here is what was said:

 Clinton administration officials indicted and/or convicted in connection with Whitewater:

 Starr convicted some Arkansans of various non-Clinton crimes.
 Whitewater came up empty for Ken Starr.

 Clinton administration officials indicted and/or convicted in connection with Travel Office allegations:

 The Tracel Office "scandal" came up empty for Starr.

 Clinton administration officials indicted and/or convicted in connection with alleged abuse of FBI files:

 Starr had to admit that was just an accident.

 Clinton administration officials indicted and/of convicted in connection with Lewinsky matter:

 Sorry, Kennyboy struck out there, too.

 Wiuth Reagan and Bush, it was different.
 Bush had to pardon Reagan's cabinet to keep their global B.F.E.E. crimes from being discovered.

 Subject: Justified Wars

 T.A. Spina (Oct. 22 letter, "Democrats' wars") goes through the list of Democrats
 who have started wars, taking umbrage with the term "Republican warmongers."

 Getting involved in wars meant to stop madmen (World War II) and genocide (Kosovo)
 cannot be compared to starting a war for oil, sending young kids off to die while you
 sit back home playing golf, and telling terrorists to "bring it on."

 Republicans are, indeed, warmongers.
 They love war, just so long as they're not the ones doing the fighting.

 What's the reference to peach trucks? Is that from the legend about the Eat a Peach album
 and Duane Allman's motorcycle wreck?  The story that Duane hit a peach truck and the album title
 alludes to that isn't true, but those who have heard the account will understand what you mean.
 It's still a good cautionary statement. Those who haven't or don't know about the band,

"One thing I acknowledge about the right is that they're much better haters than liberals are. Your basic
 liberal--milk of human kindness flowing through every vein, and heart bleeding over everyone from the
 milk-shy Hottentot to the glandular obese--is pretty much a strikeout on the hatred front. Maybe further
 out on the left you can hit some good righteous anger, but liberals, and I am one, are generally real wusses.
 Guys like Rush Limbaugh figured that out a long time ago--attack a liberal and the first thing he says is,

 I got this response from Red Lobster when I ripped them on their customer comment form.

 Please be advised Red Lobster no longer advertises on any Rush Limbaugh program.

 I will let our Advertising Department know about your comments.

 We certainly value your patronage, and look forward to serving you in the future.

That is how a customer service rep is supposed to act.
     That condescending snot at Avacor could learn how to do his job from Ami, here.
It's just a wild guess, but I think Ami is asking what the meaning of the word, "is," is.
     I've heard plenty of RL commercials on Rush's hate show, but maybe *at the current time*
     they have no promotions running with the vulgar junkie.
     Next time they run a "Shrimp Special," I'll be listening for them.
Obviously they knew he was a devisive, right-wing Nazi when they originally signed up,
