"The President and I will be proud next year
to bring our message to voters in Ohio and all across America.
The President came to Washington three years ago determined that he wanted to solve problems, rather than
simply pass them on to future generations. We were determined to seize new opportunities for reform, rather
than get bogged down in some of the old debates that had stood in the way of progress."
--Dick Cheney, Attribution
Hey Dick, if any of that is true, explain
why you turned the Clinton Surplus into a Valdez-sized debt.
Our grandchildren will be paying for your precious tax cuts decades from now.
The Senate gave a $401.3 billion giveaway to the Bush Family Evil Empire.
The bill authorizing the
gift put it directly in President Pinhead's pockets.
Democrats joined Republicans in the 95-3 vote, despite their objections
to the BFEE.
They stressed that Bush might give some to military contractors his father owns.
But the bill was opposed by Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., who said
it "transfers vast,
unchecked powers to the Defense Department while avoiding any break with the
business-as-usual approach to increasing defense spending."
"Is $400 billion enough, Dubya? Could you use $600B, instead?"
Since there is no accounting for any of this money, why
did the Democrats
pretend to fight the $87B for Iraq if they were going to give Bush an extra
$400B just a few days later? Can we get new Democrats in Washington?

Subject: The Death Penalty
I'm against the death penalty for these
snipers, but purely for economic reasons.
I can't bear the thought of spending millions of dollars to put these scum through long,
drawn out sentencing and appeals (which are absolutely necessary, by the way).
We should just lock them up and throw away
Killing them won't bring anyone back or undo what they did;
even though they should be killed, those assholes are simply not worth the trouble.
They'll probably get killed in prison anyway.

How many times have they changed the reason we "had" to invade
First it was to save America from Saddam's nukes.
Then it was to "free" the Iraq people - from what, electricity and running water?
Then it was to "promote" democracy in the region.
Now it's to bring all the terrorists to one central location so we can kill them all.
What will it be next week?
Dishonors Fallen Soldiers
The Bush Administration says it respects the killed soldiers and their families.
What the Administration respects is winning the next election.
from Veterans Against Iraq War www.vaiw.org
The Bush administration says its ban on ceremonies honoring the dead is intended to prevent
invasion of the privacy of families during a time of grief. Excluding military honors is one less thing
for families to worry about, it says. The administration claims that it's trying to save family members
the burden of feeling obligated to attend base homecoming ceremonies.
The truth is that the White House is obsessed
with not associating President George W. Bush with
slain American troops so close to the 2004 presidential elections. Bush worries that it will harm the
already poor image of his occupation of Iraq as a supposedly bloodless "piece of cake" for the United States.
Thanks for what you do!!!
The President's declarations that the challenges in Afghanistan are over is not only misleading
to the American public, but a direct affront to the 10,000 U.S. soldiers at risk there. Just this
weekend, five U.S. soldiers were killed in a helicopter crash north of Kabul. A day earlier,
two U.S. soldiers were injured in a Taliban rocket attack, and a soldier lost his leg in a land mine
explosion, and just last month two CIA officers were killed. The Taliban problem has gotten so bad
that the U.N. is pulling staff out of parts of the country10, and Germany's ambassador recently
said it threatens the country's efforts to form a democratic government11.

Fumes Over Secret Taping
Attorney and client taped discussing case
Geragos called the news conference following revelations that he and Jackson were secretly
videotaped while flying on a private jet to Santa Barbara last week for Jackson's surrender.
Geragos claimed in a lawsuit filed against XtraJet that the charter company covertly installed
two cameras in the plane's cabin. Jackson's attorneys won a temporary restraining order
against XtraJet, barring any release of the tapes.
The cameras "were recording attorney-client
conversations and then somebody had the unmitigated
gall to shop those tapes around to media outlets in order to sell them to the highest bidder," he said.
Separately, FBI spokesman Matthew McLaughlin
said agents went to the headquarters of XtraJet.
"We're currently assessing if a federal violation has occurred," McLaughlin said.
The tapes' existence came to light when
representatives of XtraJet showed it to several news organizations,
saying they had found two videotapes and wanted to know whether it was legal to distribute or sell them.
Is attorney/client privilege still on the books?
I know they took that away from Clinton in their hardon to impeach.
Did the Crooked Whore Court take that from everybody or just Clinton?
By the way, I called XtraJet at 877-987-2538 and had this conversation.
Anyone flying XtraJet
should understand that their conversations might be taped
and released to the highest bidder, so watch what you say on XtraJet.

"Squirrels eat with both hands," he says, holding his tight like cupped paws,

Izzard (Is-ard) is riding a comic wave of
his own invention. Without backup writers, scripts or
a plan worthy of the name, he has rocketed from counterculture kook in London to international
big deal on the strength of his motormouth, timing, nerve and intelligence. On top of that, he's funny.
Had he lived a century earlier, he'd have been serious competition for Buster Keaton.
Not since Richard Pryor was young has a
comic so enthralled the brainy. Pryor channeled his neighborhood;
Izzard channels the world, sliding up and down the evolutionary ladder and dipping into history to examine the odd bits.
Three things to say about Eddie Izzard:
I hate English humor more than I hate country music, (but not as much as I hate the Dallas Cowboys)
Eddie is a transvestite, meaning he may show up in a dress, pearl earrings and full make up.
Comparing anybody to the great Richard Pryor is like comparing your band to the Beatles.
Ther first time Tommy Mack was flown to Tulsa, he said,
"Have you ever heard of Eddie Izzard?
He's great, and I brought a DVD of his to play you, it's called, Dressed to Kill."
I explained to Tommy that I didn't do English humor, and so watching his DVD was out of the question.
So I agreed to watch five minutes, with the understanding
that we'd turn it off soon after.
But I'll be damned if Eddie Izzard isn't one of the funniest people on this whole planet.
We watched the whole thing and my sides hurt from laughing when it was over.
Reminder: This was English humor, which I do not do.
Tommy was woefully unable to explain the transvestite thing to my satisfaction.
If it's not a sexual thing, why wear a dress?
If you say, "People can wear what they
want," yeah - fine.
That means you might wear a dress twice a year to prove you can,
but would you wear a dress to work if it might cost you your job?
I have nothing against transvetities, I
just don't understand it. If a white man woke up and put on
black skin and then complained that he was discriminated against, I'd say, "Don't do that."
But Eddie Izzard is one funny m-effer.
One thing I really like is that he's much smarter than me - most comics aren't.
Eddie gives history lessons throughout every stand-up I've seen him do.
I learn more history laughing with Izzard than I did in school.
I hope Eddie makes a lot of money.

bars sale of nude Cameron Diaz photos
I think more judges need to read bartcop.com
A judge Tuesday barred a photographer from selling topless photographs of actress Cameron Diaz.
Superior Court Judge Alan B. Haber granted
a permanent injunction against sale of the photos and
also banned photographer John Rutter, of Venice, from either possessing or publicizing them.
Rutter, 41, faces a criminal trial on charges
that he tried to extort $3.3 million from Diaz by
threatening to sell the pictures. Rutter's apartment was raided and authorities seized the photos,
which are being kept in a safe deposit box.
Since I'm old and more wise than when I
was young, I'm going to bet this is just another example
or horribly incompetent writing from some uneducated mook over at the once-dependable AP.
Remember the Jennifer-changing-into-a-swimsuit episode of WKRP?
The weasel photographer put a hidden
camera in the model's dressing room and got
pictures of Jennifer nude, but very importantly, against her will. That's an invasion that
should cause a judge to put your scumbag ass in prison for a few years..
But if you gave your boyfriend permission
to tape you like Paris Hilton,
or if you took off your clothes on a beach in Europe like Jennifer Aniston,
or if you posed for pictures like Madonna or Vanessa Williams or hundreds others,
you have no reasonable expectation that those pictures to remain buried forever - especially
if you "make it." You're wasting the court's time and the taxpayer's money.
I'll bet you five-to-one Diaz wants those
pictures back not because she is naked,
but because they made her appear in a less-than-flattering light, so they go to court?
...besides, the judge ruled against "sale of the photos, either possessing or publicizing them."
Did you see a "Do not upload," in that judge's order?
Besides, doesn't every man in the world with a modem already have those pictures?
I'm not saying it's right, I'm saying the instant, worldwide distribution
of sounds, text and pictures
is now a fact of life and pretending that situation doesn't exist is little more than a self-assisted handjob.
it was a mistake"
Retired General now free to speak the truth
The retired American general who headed the first occupation government in Iraq
said they made major mistakes, including disbanding the Iraqi army, putting too few
troops on the ground and failing to explain the goals of the war.
Jay Garner, in his most critical comments
yet, said that the series of mistakes began
when they did not act quickly to maintain law and order and preserve the buildings
needed for the government ministries.
"If we did it over again, we probably would have
put more dismounted infantrymen
in Baghdad and maybe more troops there," Garner said in a BBC interview.
The economy in the third quarter galloped ahead faster than an initial estimate, which was
already the swiftest in nearly two decades. That burst, along with a surge in consumer
confidence, raised hopes for the recovery's staying power.
That's not true.
It didn't raise anyone's hopes, (except maybe for Russert,
the Pigboy and Coulter) especially not Wall Street's.
The Dow was up a C-H, while the Nasdaq actually lost ground.
The broadest measure of the economy's performance,
gross domestic product, increased at a (this poor,
uneducated AP writer means "an,") 8.2 percent annual rate in the July-to-September quarter, even better
than the 7.2 percent rate estimated a month ago, the Commerce Department said.
The new GDP reading Ôø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡ embraced by President
Cowboy as "proof" of the effectiveness of his disasterous
administration's economic policies Ôø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡ represents the strongest growth since the first quarter of 1984, when the
economy surged at a 9 percent pace. The new estimate is more than double the 3.3 rate in the second quarter.
Somebody better tie me to a chair because I'm about to go off!
Koresh - where to start?
When the economy is hemorrhaging a quart of blood per hour, when you reduce the quart
to a half quart, you don't get to jump up and scream, "The patient is cured!"
It only means you're getting better at stopping the bleeding.
If the economy is "surging back," why is Wall Street afraid to bet on it?
They had confidence when Clinton was in charge, and they went "all in" on America then.
The strongest since 1984? Gee, who was president then? Red-Ink Reagan was.
Yes, Reagan pulled the same handjob that Bush is pulling, and the press backed him up, too.
If you crash the economy, you don't get credit for the "miraculous comeback" half way thru.
If Bush triples the Dow like Clinton did, (which would be up to 33,000) I'll vote for the bastard.
Say your company buys 1000widgits
a day to convert to profitable
When the owner's idiot son took over, he crashed ultra-widgits production to 10 per day.
Three years later, the owner's idiot son raises production to 30widgits a day.
Do you scream what a genius the monkey is for "tripling"
production of widgits?
Or do you wonder why the board of directors is happy losing 970widgits per day?
Jesus Christ - stop screaming about what a paradise Bush has brought
We're down 970 widgets per day, and the American press is LOVING this Unelected Moron.
Would somebody please challenge me on my numbers or my most excellent analogy?
My teeth need sharpening.
Not to mention the 435
factory workers who were killed because the owner's idiot son
says all those OSHA laws were just "socialism run amock" and "shackles on production..."
America - wake the F up!
The owner's idiot son is going to ruin this whole town!

> When you watch Jon Stewart (Comedy Channel 11

> Is he doing Louie Nye?
> Is he doing Myron Cohen?
> Is he doing some uncle of his that we don't know?
> I think Johnny Carson used to do the same character.
We'll probably disagree on this - dozens wrote to suggest Rodney
Dangerfield or Woody Allen,
but I think Jon's doing Carson doing Art Fern and his Tea-Time Movies.
I have some Art Fern in the audio archives.
Maybe I can dig some out.

Subject: Church closings
The church closing thing is a little more complicated than you set forth.
You've got to remember, the poorer people are, the more generous they tend to be.
Charitable giving (as a percentage of income)
goes does down as income goes up.
The big time church fund raisers don't do it $1,000 at a time: they take it $10 at a time
from the people who can least afford it and use the money to air condition their dog houses.
Jim, I confess (I'm Catholic) that when I wrote that, I had a
certain Tulsa church in mind.
The Asbury United Methodist Church, which I understand is not Catholic, is building
the biggest church I've ever seen and I'm old enough to have seen them all.
The church building currently under construction is 250,000
Plus, it's being built at 67th and Mingo, which is the prime of prime real extate in Tulsa.
They claim 2500 families worship (at the current church) each week. They are expanding
as fast as they can build. They are raking in millions of tax-free dollars, maybe per week.
How can they do that?
Simnple - they allow their clergy to marry, so they have no child sex scandals (that I know of.)
If the Catholics wanted to make more money, and build multi-million
dollar new churches,
they could pass the "zero tolerance" sex-with-kids policy - but noooooooooooooooooo.
They refuse to do that.
Apparently they prefer sex with kids to millions of dollars.
Why aren't the Catholics outraged?
Why is the guy without faith one of the few voices to raise the question?

Daschle: It's Time to Step Down as Minority Leader
saw it on Buzzflash.com
"...when Daschle leads Democrats, it is most often in the wrong direction.
He is, perhaps, the worst Democratic Minority
"Leader" in modern history. He hands Bush and the
Republicans more victories on a platter than they could ever have hoped for. Daschle is the perennial
lout who continually grabs defeat from the jaws of victory. He blew an opportunity to cripple Bush and
Cheney with investigations into their dirty business...
Daschle's continued tenure is the most serious
danger to any chance of success the Democrats might
have in 2004 in all the congressional and senate elections and the presidency. Because he has allowed
the Bush administration to define the terms of the debate in Congress, without a strong Democratic
counterattack or proactive vision.
I agree totally.
Daschle is afraid to oppose Bush, yet he wants to lead the opposition?
Please resign your post, Senator, the sooner the better.
The stakes are too high to have a scared-ass pink tutu running the party of honest patriotism.
