America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now?
We can't fight alone against this monster
In the next 20 minutes, Tommy and I will tape Radio Show 24.
It's going to be good, and why do I say that?
Because I'm in a pissed off mood.
I have two kinds of pissed off moods:
One where I'm too angry to type,
and the mood I'm in right now which is perfect for radio.
The next issue might be up as early as tonight,

Tonight's World Poker Tour on The Travel Channel is the very best ever!
This is the very best of the Pro-Bowl, all
star, big money poker players.
You're going to see a guy bet $200K with absolutely nothing.
In my poker education, I'm just now getting
to the point where
I'm starting to understand what they've been saying all along:
It doesn't matter what cards you have in your hand.
The only thing that matters is the timing and size of your bet.
If you've ever had even the slightest interest
in real poker,
watch tonight and see the game played as good as it gets.
This isn't celebrity poker where it's all
about the yuks.
This is real poker, for the $3,000,000 grand prize.
It's a fantastic look at human nature and
expecially the art of the bluff.
If you've got a totally screwed hand from hell, ignore it and start bluffing.
You can use these lessons in everyday life again and again.
Of course, I'm insane to mention this 11
days before the big Vegas Pokerfest,
but when we meet on the 24th, it'll be more about the sipping some ultra-smooth
Chinaco Anejo than slitting the financial throats of our good friends.

Quote of the Day
"No President has ever done more
I guess Condi told him that was true...
"It's one thing to believe Bush's policies
are leading his country toward a bleak future
of massive debt, increased terrorism, and environmental catastrophy but does Dean
have to be so mad about it? He just comes off as petty. I mean, if America liked angry
presidents JFK would have beaten all those secretaries instead of nailing them."
--Stephen Colbert, of the Daily Show, on why he believes Dean is too angry to appeal to the general electorate,
Precautions in the name of air security are about to taken to a level unimaginable in the United States only a few years ago.
The Washington Post reports Bush is expected
to order as soon as next month the first step in setting up databases
on all air passengers, to be used to color-code each air traveler according to his or her potential threat level.
Passengers coded red would be stopped from
boarding; yellow would mean additional screening at security checkpoints;
and green would mean an only standard level of scrutiny.
Airlines and airline reservation companies
would reportedly be forced to turn over all passenger records to U.S. government
officials, who struck out in a trial program was based on voluntary surrender of airline industry data.
...and anyone on the BFEE's enemies list with either be
barred from flying or super-frisked at every airport.
My SW frequent flyer miles won't do me any good if Bush's goons won't let me on the plane.
They could also use this to shut down Michael Moore, Al Franken, Sean Penn and all war critics.
Can't we get a real president before we forget what America used to be like under elected Bill Clinton?
How to Lose Your Job in Talk Radio
"Criticism of Bush and his ever-shifting pretext for a first-strike war (what exactly was it we were pre-empting anyway?)
has proved so serious a violation of Clear Channel's cultural taboo that only a good contract has kept me from being fired
outright. Roxanne Cordonier, a radio personality at Clear Channel's WMYI 102.5 in Greenville, S.C., didn't have it as good.
Cordonier was the South Carolina Broadcasters Association's 2002 Radio Personality of the Year. That apparently wasn't
enough for Clear Channel. Her lawsuit against the company alleges that she was belittled on the air and reprimanded by her
station for opposing the invasion of Iraq. Then she was fired."
This is one of the calling cards of the today's fascist goons.
Since they can't win in a fair exchange of ideas, they play dirty.
Money (even a lone dollar) is more important than integrity or trust.
Anyone who doesn't play along had to be fired, injured or killed.

seeks probe of Paul O'Neill
Frame-up likely for the man who wanted fewer tax cuts
The Inspector General's Office at Treasury confirmed that it had begun an investigation

Blind, deaf outraged by Bush quote
The former U.S. Treasury Secretary says the President's cabinet meetings, during which plans
for regime change in Iraq were put in motion a mere ten days after Bush's inauguration, resembled
"a blind man in a roomful of deaf people."
The National Association of Blind and Deaf

"The NABDA resents any comparison between our membership and the incompetent moron President."

I called the owner of Click and Learn software.
Just making conversation, I asked what he was doing.
He said, "Memorizing the names of counties of Oregon."
With his software, in less time than it would take to fly there,
a candidate could memorize each county in the state and appear
very smart and caring to the voters he was trying to impress.
I'll bet Mr. Click and Learn has a presentation to give in Oregon
and he's going to wow! them by naming every county in their state.
Consider: Iowa has 99 counties.
The candidate who knew them all would surely get more votes
than the candidate who couldn't remember where he was.
Unless you're a simpleton who can't think, and only got this far
because your rich daddy bought your governorship, anyone can
use this software to memorize pretty much anything that counts.

Binions closure sends dark message
Downtown took a big hit when Binion's Horseshoe was forced to close its doors Friday.
A dark casino amid the neon on Fremont Street
sends a negative message about the vitality
of the downtown casino district, and Binion's closure is even worse since the 52-year-old
casino is one of the city's leading icons, experts said Sunday.
"Dark neon on Fremont Street is definitely a setback
to the new synergy,"
Councilman Lawrence Weekly said.
In the early nineties, the downtown merchants and casino owners
got together and built the
$70M "Fremont Street Experience." You'd think it would be a good idea to not have one
of the corners dark. Considering the money involved, why can't hey come up with a mere $5M?
They just sold the Golden Nugget for $215M, so what's holding up this tiny $5M?
This is the second "Fest" site that closed its doors soon after hosting a party for us.
The Rio won't close, because their owners, Harrah's, are talking to Mrs Binion about buying her out.

suffer 41 months of layoffs
But America loves the way Bush is handling the economy?
Despite recent sharp jumps in orders and shipments, factories shed 26,000 workers in December,
the Labor Department said Friday. The December figures mark the 41st consecutive month of layoffs,
and bring overall manufacturing job losses to 2.8 million since mid-2000.
The pace of layoffs has slowed since summer,
but more than 500,000 factory jobs evaporated in 2003 alone.
The figures are a disappointment for workers and many analysts, who had predicted the beleaguered
manufacturing sector was turning the corner.
No, they lied to make Bush look better.
If Clinton had had this fawning, good puppy press, Gore's Dow would be at 18,000
we'd still have the Twin Towers and every American would have health care.
And isn't it disgusting that Americans are so stupid,
Everybody: How, ...stupid, ..are they?
They're so stupid, after losing 3 million jobs all the illegal
chimp has to do is stand in front of a
backdrop that says, "Creating jobs," and people tell themselves that he's doing a good job.
...but wait - it gets worse.
• AT&T froze 2004 management pay raises. Its 2003 job cuts rose from 10% to 12% of its workers.
• Sprint's local phone unit expects a 17% drop in 2004 capital spending to $1 billion.
• SBC Communications expects fourth-quarter job cuts will total 3,000 to 4,000.
• BellSouth will cut 1,074 jobs.
• Qwest Communications last month cut $3 billion in debt, to save $250 million a year in interest.
• Verizon said that more than 21,000 workers are
taking its buyout offer Attribution

Oil prices hit fresh post-Iraq war highs on Monday as speculators bet on a market underpinned
by low U.S. crude inventories and the threat of another bout of Arctic weather in the United States.
Speculative funds have driven the price
strength, expecting another spell of very cold weather in the
U.S. Northeast, a center for heating oil demand.
"It's still a pretty firm market," said Marshall
Steeves, analyst at Refco.
"Crude supplies remain quite tight."
Crude supplies remain tight because Bush
is letting his friends price-gouge the public - again.
They knew in September that the Northeast would be cold in January - so why are supplies tight?
I should get a seven-figure job as an oil industry advisor.
I could tell them that it gets cold in the winter and less so in the summer.
I could predict with uncanny accuracy which weekends next year will have a
disproportionate amount of drivers filling up for a vacatioon to visit the grandparents.

Diana Ross to Accept Plea in DUI Charge
There will be no trial for Diana Ross on drunken driving charges.
During a pretrial hearing in Tucson City
Court, Ross' lawyers said she's ready
to accept a plea agreement and will change her earlier "not guilty" plea.
Details of the agreement, including what
type of plea Ross may enter
or whether any type of sentence might be involved, were not released.
Why do we have "secret justice?"
For all we know, she blew the judge and he dropped the charges
I thought the public had a right to know - at least we did under rightfully elected Bill Clinton.
This wasn't a lawsuit that both sides settled in a non-disclosure

If your boy Clark doesn't get the nomination, will you support whomever the nominee is in the general election?
Also, whomever the president is next year,
don't you think that they should represent the American people
rather than some shady corporate interest? Isn't that the problem we have now? I don't know who Bush
represents, but it sure as shit isn't the American people.
I am anti-Bush.
I kinda expect people who read this page to know that.
Who *I* think the president ought to support is hardly the issue facing this country.
We need to get rid of Bush and I think Clark would be more effective at that.
One more thing, Fuck You.
Sorry, but you had that coming for insinuating that i'm some kind of Naderite or Repub brownshirt

"They made me lie.
I didn't want to do it."
Colin Powell conceded Thursday that despite his assertions to the UN last year,
he had no "smoking gun" proof of a link between the Saddam and Al Qaeda.
"I have not seen smoking-gun, concrete evidence
about the connection, but I think the
possibility of such connections did exist, and it was prudent to consider them at the time that we did." .
You Sir, are a liar.
"Prudence" didn't get 500 soldiers killed.
Your boss's unquenchable hardon for oil and your bald-faced lies got those men killed.

Clark's clothes switch is see-through
Denver slut re-writes Dowd's column to try to be just like her
I don't know what's come over me. Suddenly I just can't take my eyes off Gen. Wesley Clark.
I mean, since he started wearing argyle sweaters and corduroy pants, yum!
I'm telling you, when it comes to the other
Democrats in the race for the presidential nomination,
all buttoned-down tight in their conservative dark suits and ties, it's just soooo over.
Or ... maybe not.
Apparently it worked for Madonna.
She announced her endorsement of Clark "not only as a celebrity, but as an American citizen and a mother."
But we're not all material girls.
Gag me with a swastika.
This talentless, streetwalking hack could win a Pulitzer, just
like Dowd, for attacking Democrats.
This is what reporting has become under the giant whore tent that was once the Fifth Estate.
Take something as trivial as wearing a sweater, then pile on every possible negative connotation
and get a big raise from your Bush-loving boss (after sleeping with him, of course).
It stands as proof that Clark is such a threat to the B.F.E.E.'s
domination of global affairs that they order
Clark to be hit with these silly-ass charges that he's a fake if he puts on a sweater in January in New Hampshire.
Every candidate in the last forty years has made an appearance without wearing a suit, but Clark is guilty.
Little Miss Ass-for-Sale wants to tie Madonna to Clark?
Why not remind everyone that every four years, the GOP nominee is endorsed the the KKK?
