Quote of the Day
"I'm sure you'll be having a nice little tea
"Limbaugh cannot have it both ways. Either
he will now advocate for rehab and treatments for all
individuals convicted of drug expenses or he should feel the full weight of the law. If he doesn't
go to jail - and he shouldn't - then he has a responsibility to use his power and influence, his
millions of listeners, to campaign to change our drugs laws."
--Jesse Jackson, sounding remarkable naive,
Jesse, he's also got a responsibility not
to lie. What makes you think Rush will be responsible?
His easily-led sheep won't let anything as small as him being a lying hypocrite and drug abuser
keep them from worshipping him. Ethics whores like Bill Bennett and Laura the Unloved will
excuse his behavior the same way they excused Newt's while he was busy impeaching Clinton
while he was screwing his secretary.
George Bush was last night branded chicken for scrapping his speech to Parliament because
he feared being heckled by anti-war MPs. The US president planned to give a joint address
to the Commons and Lords during his state visit to Britain - but chickened out at the last minute.
The only speech Mr Bush is now due to give will be to an "invited audience" in Whitehall.
Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn said: "This is
yet another slight on this country by the president of the USA.
"The least he could do is subject himself to questions from MPs."
But the monkey
doesn't know that trick
Like Arnold, all he can do is read a script given to him ahead of time..
And colleague John McDonnell said: "Bush
might be able to run from the protesters, he might be able not to see
the banners, but he must not be able to hide from the anger felt across the country at this unjustified war.".
Mr. McDonnell, he's been hiding behind his
daddy's skirt all his life.
He has never been held responsible for anything he's ever done.
"I'm fearless! Nobody can stop me!"
Five weeks after leaving his radio program to check into a rehabilitation clinic, Limbaugh, 52,
at times sounded more like Dr. Laura than the most popular conservative commentator on the air.
"I can no longer turn over the power of my feelings to anyone else, which is what I have done a lot
of my life, in order to be liked, appreciated or understood," he said. "And in the process I denied
myself who I was. I can't be responsible for anybody's happiness but my own."
I liked Rush better when he was on the heroin.
From what I've heard of him the last two days, he's just repeating ther same stuff over and over.
He seems to have lost his sense of when he's made his point, cause he just keeps on and on and on.

"Marriage is a sacred institution between a

Supreme Judicial Court violates this important principle. I will work with congressional leaders and others
to do what is legally necessary to defend the sanctity of marriage."

Hey George, explain how marriage gets hurt, would you?
I think divorce hurts marriage more than gay people.
Your heroes Reagan, Newt and the vulgar junkie have had eight wives between them.

I got a doozie for ya~~
excerpt from the Patriot Act:
"people engaged in or reasonably suspected, based on credible evidence,
of engaging in terrorist acts or money laundering activities." <----this is how
they justified going after that bribing strip club owner in Vegas>
But, they won't use it on Rush, cuz he's an "R- Rampant Dopehead"
Rush Laundered Money to Pay for Drugs?
Rush Limbaugh may have violated state money-laundering laws in the way he handled the money
he used to buy the drugs to which he was addicted, law enforcement officials told ABCNEWS.
A conviction on such charges in Florida would be punishable by up to 30 years in prison.
His lawyer, Roy Black, the Kennedy rape
lawyer, denied today there was any foundation
for a money-laundering prosecution
If the vulgar junkie goes to prison, I'm buying new Cadillacs for everyone.
Best TV Show of the Season
CBS Chairman Les Moonves wasn't sure when he read the script. He says his head of drama development,
Nina Tassler, urged him to do the family show because it would attract WB viewers and "Touched by an Angel" fans.
Then Tony-winner Joe Mantegna and Oscar-winner Mary Steenburgen agreed to play Joan's parents.
"I respect both of them," Moonves says. "I saw
the pilot, and said, 'This has so many levels to it.' You know something
is good when the 50-year-old ... advertising guys in New York call and say, 'This is great. I want to sell this.'"
Moonves says Tamblyn's casting is essential
to the series' success. "If you don't fall in love with that little girl,
She was so appealing, and by the way, so ordinary. I mean that as a compliment. Every girl in America will relate to her."
Freedom of speech means that you can say
pretty much what you want to.
It doesn't mean that I have to listen to what you have to say.
I happen to be on Judge Moore's side in
this matter. That doesn't mean that I'm overly religious;
it just means that I do believe in freedom of speech. I also believe in the US Constitution, that says,
in words to the effect, that the government will make no laws that interfere with others who want to
practice their religion whether in public or in private.
The beauty of all this is that they can
have their way, and so can you. It's not the "speaking" that is the problem.
(Speaking includes posters, bumper stickers, t-shirt messages, junk mailings, burning flags, street corner oratory,
letters to the editor, advertisements in newspapers, radio and on tv, and any other number of ways people
"show off" their beliefs, including a monument to the ten commandments.
None of these interfere with your free speech.
You can turn them off, igonore them, or anything else
to ensure their drivel doesn't insult your intelligence.
Bottom line. They don't interfere with your ramblings; don't interfere with theirs.
And don't forget. The good old USA is about
the only country in the world where you can get away with
voicing your view of the government, the ten commandments or anything else you don't happen to like. Ain't that great?
Chris or Granddad, not sure which.
So, if I came to your home and put a 5500 pound monument to Shirley
Manson on your front lawn, you would allow that?
I have a feeling you'd tell me to remove that and remind me I didn't own that property - you do.
Nobody has stopped that crazy judge from doing anything on his
property - he's been lying constantly about that.
He wants the state to endorse his momument - that's why he put it on state property.

"The medical examiner said there's no
sign of a normal vaginal delivery.
The cervix was intact.
So Laci didn't give birth naturally under water, a vaginal delivery.

Subject: Eat that, Santorum!
Woo hoo, what a bad day for Rick Santorum!
The Massachusetts Supreme Court
ruled that under state constitution, marriage rights cannot be denied to gay couples.
Since it's based on state law, homophobes can't appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court,
nor can it be overturned in the legislature without a state constitutional amendment.
The decision has "conservatives" everywhere
jumping up and down yelling
"between a man and a woman! between a man and a woman!!"
The State's argument against gay marriage tried to say that marriage was mostly
about procreation and gay couples couldn't procreate. I guess that explains the
groundswell of right wingers fighting to deny marriage rights to senior citizens
and victims of testicular and ovarian cancer.
Republicans like to pretend they're for "less government," so
why are they always wanting bedroom legislation?
They want an armed federal agent in every bedroom to be sure everybody does it the way Jesse Helms and Jim Inhofe approve.
Why can't they just butt the hell out of everybody else's sex life?
"Your state visit to the UK is risky, unpopular
and awkward enough. Many Americans will be nervously

with already in the Labour party without receiving any more public kisses of political death from you.
Don't interrupt when someone is asking you a question. Try not to puke on the Queen."

Officers conducting a criminal investigation searched Jackson's Alwaysland Ranch yesterday.
The purpose of the raid was not disclosed. Court TV said the search warrant was tied to
sexual-abuse allegations brought by a 12- or 13-year-old boy. Sixty to 70 investigators served
a warrant as part of an "ongoing criminal investigation."

I'm not an attorney (even though I have over 300 wins in court
with no losses) but how can a man
sexually assault a child and then write a check to the parents and pretend it never happened?
Could Kobe write that Colorado woman a check for a million and have his rape charges dropped?
I can understand a property case - if I break a man's windshield
with a baseball bat and they drop
the charges if I agree to pay for a new windshield, but how do you do that after raping a child?
Maybe he can be Rush's cellmate.

There are three parts to Show 19. Enjoy a free sample.
Professionally produced by Tommy Mack.
I like his music, I like his edits, I like his direction and his production.
Tally is very good, too. Everything is very professional but the host.
We need subscribers.
I asked Tommy why it took so long to get this first show together and he explained
that he could only work on BartCop Radio when his studio at work wasn't being used.
So I got out the credit card and purchased a second studio for his home.
Plus, as the economy worsens, attrition
has eroded our subscriber rolls.
Being unemployed, it's always scary to read, "John Smith has cancelled his subscription."
But we're too far into this to turn back, so I went "all in" on this studio for Tommy.
We are certain we can do a show per week, then move to two shows per week.
So if you like Part One of the three part Show 19 please subscribe today.
We will work hard to make you glad you did.

"New American Century" Ends Prematurely
by Gene Lyons
Last week's new "Iraqification" plan--the U.S. would retain military control--made
many suspect that real idea is to prop up a make-believe government in Iraq, call it a
democracy, proclaim victory during the Republican National Convention, then pray that
sheer chaos and open civil war among the country's three main ethnic groups--Sunni,
Shiites and Kurds--don't break out before election day 2004.
Even as the U.S. command's Hollywood-sounding
"Operation Iron Hammer" began
bombing empty warehouses and shooting up villages deemed loyal to Saddam Hussein,
Bush felt compelled to deny that the U.S. planned to "cut and run." Doubters came from
almost every point on the political compass: "My greatest fear is that this administration,
having made all the wrong choices, is going to conclude they have to bring Johnny and
Jane home by the next election in order to survive," Joe Biden told the New York Times.

Subject: Military endorsements for Dean
Retired Gen. Merrill "Tony" McPeak, the
former Air Force chief of staff who endorsed
Bush in 2000, has left the Republican fold and is backing Howard Dean in 2004.
McPeak, who headed the Air Force during
the Persian Gulf War in 1991, criticized
Bush's policy toward Iraq before the invasion in March. He also said he has become
disenchanted with the president's economic policies.
"I don't think the younger Bush has put
a foot right since he entered the White House,"
said McPeak, who changed his registration from Republican to independent in April.
In addition to McPeak, Dean has been endorsed
by retired Marine Gen. Joseph Hoar,
who once headed Central Command, which is in charge of all military operations in
the Mideast. Klass said that retired Adm. Stansfield Turner, who headed the CIA under
President Carter, also supports Dean and that several other retired military officers are
informal advisers and might endorse him.

"The good news is that both of your daughters
can drink here legally. You see, here in England they believe
that if you are 18 and old enough to fight and die for your country you should at least be able to have a drink
or two legally. Now the bad news. I don't know if you know this but the majority of people outside the US
don't hold you in high regard. As a matter of fact, you're kind of scaring a few folks and angering a few more.

rest of the world they don't take it too kindly."

We don't like it either.
Our problem is the elected Democrats are too afraid to fight.
defense of conservatives
OR: in search of a real conservative
I respect conservatives because they defend families and children - groups often left behind in politics.
No Jeff, you're wrong. They CLAIM they defend
families, then they gut programs to help them.
If not for Democrats, the right would cut education, safety nets and health care. Bush is letting polluters write
environmental legislation. He's letting Monsanto write his "clear skies" horseshit. He let Enron write energy policy.
Who told you the GOP protects children, Rush or Hannity? You are dangerously close to the dreaded MM logo.
Bush Boy Negotiates Weak Settlement with Mutual Fund
Despite President Bush's strong support for corporate accountability, the President's hand-picked
Securities and Exchange Commission chairman, William Donaldson, is coming under fire for negotiating
a weak first settlement in the burgeoning mutual funds scandal with the nation's fifth-largest fund.
President Bush's corporate responsibility
bill, signed into law in July 2002, was designed to address the wave
of corporate scandals that had impacted markets, beginning with Enron's collapse in December 2001.
"The fundamentals of a free market...require clear rules and confidence in basic fairness."1

the Next Bosnia
by Michael Hammerschlag - saw it on hammernews.com
The huge bombings of the Shiites at the Najaf mosque and the vicious bombings of the UN and Red Cross are
probably the opening shots in this coming War. They are convinced America can be dealt with- first they've ensured
no other governments will send sizable quantities of troops, and guaranteed their countrymen endless hardship without
the solace of international relief agencies. The rebels attacking US, Shiite, and relief forces are from 6 groups: Baathist
and Saddamites re-seeking their position at the top of the food chain; Sunni Army people who also want to reassert
their dominance over the Shiites; people out to revenge killed, injured, or humiliated relatives in the invasion, occupation,
or 12 year sanctions (which killed maybe 2/3 million); criminals released under Saddamnesty, foreign jihadists lured to
Iraq by our reckless invasion; and radical Shiites who want to control their sect, think they could persevere in a Civil War,
and still think of America as the Great Satan. There are way too few troops to do the job in Iraq, but against a guerrilla war,
more troops are just more targets, and it's probably already too late.

A message for the troops
I am a retired veteran of the army, and my own son is among you, a paratrooper like I was.
In 1970, I was assigned to the 173rd Airborne Brigade, in what was then the Republic of Vietnam.
Before I got there in 1970, the American
armed forces had been burning villages, killing livestock,
poisoning farmlands and forests, killing civilians for sport, bombing whole villages, and committing rapes
and massacres, and the people who were grieving and raging over that weren't in a position to figure out
the difference between me - just in country - and the people who had done those things to them.
Wait - this can't be right.
I've got written guarantees from dozens of men that soldiers never commit rape.
Jessica Lynch (who never made the claim) has to be lying
about her sexual abuse,
because there's no way any soldier would rape a woman in the fog of war, not even
a helpless, pretty blonde girl from a country we hate that invaded us for no reason.
Fumbles into Touchdowns
by David Hackworth
Jessica Lynch says she simply wasn't the GI Jane superstar that desperate White House and Pentagon flacks
morphed her into last March when the battle to take Baghdad was briefly bogged down in the desert.
True, Lynch wasn't the fighting action figure
extolled by a gullible press corps that gobbled up the Rove boys'
Pentagon-processed baloney. But the way this little wisp of a girl has stood up to the world's biggest propaganda
machine makes her a hero in my book. Telling the truth had to take at least a bellyful of that tried-and-true
West Virginia moral courage.
Lynch's rescue was right out of the movie
"Wag the Dog" - a complex night helicopter raid executed by our best
and brightest, who were saddled with and filmed by Pentagon PR camera teams to make absolutely sure that the
upbeat, breaking story played on all network and cable news within hours after the dramatic Special Forces coup.
This has to be the low point in the Pentagon's
quest to sell war: Good men's lives placed at risk for high prime-time
ratings and poll-tweaking rather than military necessity.
Ex wants Neil Bush to undergo paternity test
Sharon Bush has asked a state district court judge to order her ex-husband -- Bush's brother Neil Bush
-- to submit to a blood test to settle a paternity question at the heart of a defamation lawsuit against her.
The request, filed Monday, asks that the
judge order Neil Bush and Robert Andrews to submit blood tests
to determine the paternity of Andrews' 2-year-old son.
Sharon Bush contends she needs the tests
to defend herself against a $850,000 defamation lawsuit filed
against her by Andrews. Andrews' suit contends Bush defamed him when she suggested in conversations
with reporters, friends and restaurant employees that his son may have been fathered by Neil Bush.
Andrews and his wife, Maria Andrews, divorced
in October 2002 after 14 years of marriage. The Bushes
divorced in April after a 23-year marriage. Neil Bush and Maria Andrews met several years ago when she
was working as a volunteer for former first lady Barbara Bush.

Fight Back; Pundits Are Shocked
by Joe Conason
As a journalist, columnist and author of two books about contemporary conservatism, I have hurled
a few opinions myself. In fact, writers who decry the progressive offensive occasionally cite my work
as an unhealthy example (although not often enough). Hearing such complaints about our degraded
political debate, what strikes me is their extreme tardiness, after decades of increasingly shrill assault
from the right on liberals and Democrats.
During those years, and in particular during
the Clinton era, accusations of immorality, criminality and
even treason became so commonplace in Republican discourse that hardly anyone bothered to protest.
None of these worthies piped up. Where were the righteous critics when their pleas for civility might have mattered?
Have a good time today.
