Sponsor AOL Seeks Refund
The most talked about halftime show ever - and the AOL weenies want a refund?
America Online has canceled plans to stream on-demand the halftime show that it reportedly
paid $7.5 million to sponsor. The Time Warner-owned firm is reportedly seeking a refund for
all or some of that money. Although AOL issued a statement distancing itself from what some
government officials are calling a crass halftime performance, a representative declined comment
on TW's desire for compensation from Viacom.
This is an attempt by AOL to get something for free since their
business is crumbling.
Every news/entertainment outlet in the world has shown the "offending" clip a hundred times,
but AOL acts like they can't use the footage? Poppycock!

The Bush administration recently made it known that a major offensive against al Qaeda would be launched in
Afghanistan and Pakistan during the spring. It was even hinted that Osama bin Laden might be caught this year.
It is curious, however, that the administration
is only now getting ambitious about rounding up terrorists, when it
has seemed lukewarm to the idea ever since the September 11 attacks. During the war in Afghanistan, the United
States concentrated less on neutralizing al Qaeda fighters than on removing the unfriendly Taliban regime from a
country perceived to be strategic and installing a more compliant, hand-picked government. On two important
occasions in the war, the administration refused to risk U.S. casualties by committing U.S. forces to fight al Qaeda
in the Afghan mountains - relying instead on Afghan allies that were ultimately paid off to let the terrorists escape.

"I really believe that there's going to be

It seems that the Homeland Security Bill
had a provision slipped into it at the very last minute that
would shield Eli Lilly, pharmaceutical juggernaut, from any lawsuit filed by the parents of autistic children.
Why? Well, because Thimerosal, a preservative
that Lilly puts into its vaccines, has been linked to autism
and the parents have one hell of a case. We're talking billions upon billions of dollars here, but once again
the big corporations who only give hundreds of thousands of dollars to political campaigns will get off scott-free.
The funny thing about this story is that
this little piece of legislative excrement isn't being claimed by anybody.
Nobody wants to say they put the provision
in. Nobody will own up to it.
But I'll give you one guess which party the mystery legislator belonged to.
In fact, I'm so sure that somebody in my
party (the progressive one) wouldn't pull something this fascist

Subject: What! No Attacks on the Democrats Today?
Hi, Bart! I can't believe it!
In your latest rant, Vol 1244,
you did something I thought I would never see -- you wrote an entire issue
without once typing a direct attack on the Democrats, with such as your
latest favorite term, the "gelding Democrats," which, as is one of your things,
you have already driven well into the ground.
Was that intentional or an accident?
Anyway, it sure did elevate your rants a notch higher, and I hope it's a trend instead of an oversight.
Carl, despite your words, your position remains unclear.
Are you saying the Democrats are a fighting team of bravery and steel resolve
and I have mischaracterized their bravery for some unknown purpose?
Have I unfairly maligned their willingness to do the job for which they were hired?
It would be great if I didn't have to run that pink tutu graphic
but it's a fact that democrats see fighting back as something "other people" do.
I wish you had stated your objection more clearly.
Bush took FBI agents off bin Laden family trail
"America was itself to blame for the events of September 11 because the US administration was using
"kid gloves" in tracking down Osama bin Laden and "other fanatics linked to Saudi Arabia", a special BBC
investigation has alleged in a damning indictment of the two presidents Bush and American foreign policy...
The investigation, which featured in the
BBC's leading current affairs programme, Newsnight , said the FBI
was told to "back off" investigating one of Osama bin Laden's brothers, Abdullah, who was linked to
"the Saudi-funded World Association of Muslim Youth (WAMY), a suspected terrorist organisation,"
whose accounts have still not frozen by the US treasury despite "being banned by Pakistan some weeks
ago and India claiming it was linked to an organisation involved in bombing in Kashmir".
Newsnight said there was a long history
of "shadowy" American connections with Saudi Arabia, not least
the two presidents Bush's "business dealings" with the bin Ladens and another more insidious link revealed
by the former head of the American visa section in Jeddah."
This continues to be the most under-reported story of the last
Nobody wants to believe what the evidence seems to be saying.
Surely the Bush family wouldn't put their own riches above America's safety - would they?
"Yesterday on MSNBC, televangelist Pat Robertson
said the reason Democrats are
still competitive in national elections, is that, and this is his quote, "African Americans
don't cotton to the idea of voting for Republicans". Maybe that's because Republicans
like Pat Robertson keep using "cotton" as a verb!"

Subject: Janet's breast
i was wondering if the language of the patriot
act is as broad to include what happened
during the super bowl halftime show, Janet's bare breast, as a terrorist act.
If so could you please enlighten. Scary if it is so.
Keiv, you bet it is.
They already raided strip clubs in Vegas under the Patriot Act because it was the only tool they could bend that far.
The Patriot Act can arrest anybody for anything.
The wording says "anyone the president or attorney general suspect," which could be all democrats.
...but Bush barked, "Sign this now," and the Democrats meekly obeyed.
Marty's Entertainment Page
The General vs the Deserter
"I think that there is no question that Bush
knew about it... was very complicit in the events of 9/11.
If you take a look at the facts of 9/11, if there was nothing to hide, why would Bush be hiding everything?
He didn't want the 9/11 Commission. He has been stonewalling the 9/11 Commission. They want to extend
the 9/11 Commission. The word is now that the president and the White House doesn't want to do it...
Think about it. For the events of 9/11 to have occurred, 116 governmental agencies and failsafe systems
would have had to fail on that day. The odds of that happening are one in four million."

Burke would refuse communion to Kerry
"If Sen. John Kerry were to stand in Archbishop Raymond L. Burke's communion line Sunday,
Burke would bless him without giving him communion. Kerry, a Catholic, has voted to support
abortion rights, contrary to Catholic Church long-held teaching opposing abortion.
"I would have to admonish him not to present himself
for communion," said Burke. "I might give him
a blessing or something," he said. 'If his archbishop has told him he should not present himself for
communion, he shouldn't. I agree with Archbishop Sean O'Malley of Boston.'"
But if he had blown up Baghdad for no reason, the Church would accept him with open arms.

Singer Dumped From Pro Bowl Show
Bush logic coming full circle
Singer J.C. Chasez was dumped from the program at Sunday's all-star game in Hawaii
after fellow N'Sync member Justin Timberlake's stunt with Jackson at the championship game.
The new Pro Bowl halftime plan includes hula dancers, drummers, conch shell blowers and local singers.
"The commissioner said Monday morning that we
will change our policies and procedures as it relates
to entertainment during our games," a league spokesman said. "This is immediate action that reflects that approach."
So, they punish JC because Justin may or
may not have pulled a stunt?
This seems to be more of that, "If Bush screws up, we blame Clinton," mindset.
I guess anything that takes out attention
away from the hundreds of dead soldiers in Iraq
is good for the Never-elected Failure and, by extrapolation, that means it's good for the country.
"I wonder what went through my husband's mind.
I wonder what they did to him.
I'm asking the president to have mercy on us and please investigate and stop blocking us,
which he has been doing since 9/11. We need the truth to heal and go forward."

Subject: A reply to your response
You replied to my "who I'am voting for" So I have
a request to you, please just hear me out.
I asked you to convince me why I should have the faith in Clark that you do and to me your answer was somewhat flippant.
The reason I asked you is because I have
four sons. Three of which are on active duty in the United States Military.
Serving now overseas godzilla knows where. We don't get many calls or e-mails from them, one we haven't heard from in weeks.
Our oldest is Denny, 30 single and a Marine. He says he stays in because he loves his country and flying but can't afford to fly here
at home because of the cost, and there he gets to for free. Our second child is Bunny 6'4" Not a man alive who would tease him
about the name I tagged him with at birth because he had and to this day still has the softest skin on any human, is in the Navy.
He's been in almost six years and loves
it. Both are career men. Our third son Tony,who only decided to join
after his uncle who
was a NYC firefighter was killed when tower two came down, both his older brothers told him to go to college and then join if that
was what he really wanted to do. He thought he would do a little of both and joined the Army reserves in 2003. He got though
boot camp in Aug and was overseas by Sept. Who knew? But it is really for our youngest son Sammy that I wanted you to convince me.
You see bartcop he's only 12 and home with
us here in Ohio, and everytime he crosses my path I grab him and
hug him. He knows
that I love him and that the extra hugs he is getting are really for his brothers because they are not here,But he puts up with me leaving
the front of his shirt wet with my tears and I'am sure he rolls his eyes while I do it. But because he loves his mom, he figures it's his duty
to do it. ( When his brothers get home they so owe him big-time, I heard him tell his dad.) So bartcop that is why in a word or maybe two,
that yes Clark does worry me. Not more than Bush like you questioned me, but in other ways. Because odds are I won't get one of my
son's back and if this war goes on I may have to send them my last. So bartcop tell me why I should vote and convince my family
(did I mention we have four daughters too) to vote and put what little we have in the way of money behind Clark.
We, all of us, have a lot to lose if Bush gets another four years, but I think my husband and I may have a little bit more than most.
Thank you for hearing me out.
Mim, I tried to locate your letter but failed. We've printed a
lot lately. No telling if I was trying to be funny or if I was cutting
or whatever, but obviously had I known you had three sons overseas I would've treated you with a lot more respect.
Bush has shown a monstrouly-huge disregard for the safety of the
Sending them to die for no reason is proof of that.
Sending them to Iraq without the proper weapons or armor is more proof of that.
Trying to cut their pay while they're on the battlefield just proves what a heartless shit he is.
Clark has led men on the ground in battle and has been shot in
battle. I don't think he's going to take the order
to send men to their deaths lightly. Bush, who never worked a day in his life and figures America's assets are his assets,
sees those military deaths as the cost of doing business, like paying a bribe or paying a hooker to close an oil deal.
Bush has no idea what reality is about since he's been Richie Rich all his life.
Let me also point out that Clark is my gut decision. I don't
know a lot about him, I haven't read his book and I
only know some of his story. But I met him, shook his hand, listened to him speak and I was damn impressed.
Plus, he seems to be Clinton's choice and that holds a lot of weight with me, but lastly, I'm convinced he can
beat that Bush bastard and that could be the deciding factor in bringing your sons home safely.
When all your boys get home, would you take a picture of them
in uniform so we can print it?
Next time you write to them, tell them they have my respect and that we dedicated three shots of Chinaco to them.
Thanks and hang in there - I know it must be tough for you.
Assume they're all coming back safely and give Sammy an extra hug...

Bush team defends his military service
See? There he is right there.
The White House mounted a rare, election-year counterattack at opposition
Democrats accusing Bush of skirting National Guard duty during the Vietnam War.
Bush, avoided combat in Vietnam by serving
as a fighter pilot in the Air National Guard,
but some Democrats seeking his ouster have revived questions about his attendance record.
The issue drew media scrutiny in 2000, when
a Boston Globe investigation found no evidence
Bush performed Guard duties between May 1972 and October 1973, when he received an
honorable discharge from service.
On Tuesday, his Republican counterpart,
Ed Gillespie, angrily accused McAuliffe of "presidential
character assassination" and said "there is no ambiguity" about Bush's time in the Guard.
"The president was honorably discharged from the
National Guard. He served his time," Gillespie
told CNN television. "And he fought -- he served in a very dangerous area, which is fighter jets."
But instead of telling us he showed up for all his assigned
not release the records?
Could it be because you can't?
If Poppy could buy Junior a seat in a sold-out champagne unit
of the National Guard, I don't
think he'd have any trouble purchasing a Honorable Discharge for Junior, as well.
The White House has begun to buckle on this.
Now they're saying "Bush made up for the time he missed," meaning HE WAS AWOL,
but somehow, probably with the help of his daddy's bottomless wallet, Dubya "made up the time."
Too bad the Democrats can't figure a way to call a deserter, "a
If Gore or any Democrat had pushed this issue four years ago, Bush might be in Crawford right now talking to cows,.
but no, they didn't want to fight because fighting isn't nice and we're "above" fighting for what we believe in.

Roger Stone, the longtime Republican dirty-tricks operative who led the mob that shut down
the Miami-Dade County recount and helped make George W. Bush president in 2000,
is financing, staffing, and orchestrating the presidential campaign of Reverend Al Sharpton.
Though Stone and Sharpton have tried to
reduce their alliance to a curiosity, suggesting that all they do
is talk occasionally, a Voice investigation has documented an extraordinary array of connections. Stone
played a pivotal role in putting together Sharpton's pending application for federal matching funds, getting
dollars in critical states from family members and political allies at odds with everything Sharpton represents.
He's also helped stack the campaign with a half-dozen incongruous top aides who've worked for him in prior
campaigns. He's even boasted about engineering six-figure loans to Sharpton's National Action Network
(NAN) and allowing Sharpton to use his credit card to cover thousands in NAN costs - neither of which
he could legally do for the campaign. In a wide-ranging Voice interview Sunday, Stone confirmed his
matching-fund and staffing roles, but refused to comment on the NAN subsidies.

A current spin, and an "incoming" spin. Here we go:
(a) THE FACT:
No WMDs have been found in Iraq.
(a) THE SPIN, part 1:
"But Clinton thought there were WMDs."
(a) THE ANSWER, part 1:
Clinton didn't send 200,000 men and women into Baghdad.
(a) THE SPIN, part 2:
"But most other country thought there were WMDS."
(a) THE ANSWER, part 2:
It's not like Sweden, Ethiopia, and Mexico have independent
intelligence on these things. *Most* nations that agreed there were WMDs in Iraq
GOT THEIR INTELLIGENCE FROM US. This is a major "duh" fact, and I
haven't heard anyone get this point across on FOX or Clear Channel. The
fact is, EVERY country interested in Iraq's WMD programs gets their
intelligence data from one of FIVE nations: the USA, the UK, France,
Germany, and Russia. Think about that list, and which 60% tried to stop us
from going into Iraq!
Here's the INCOMING spin, Bart:
(b) THE FACT:
George Bush went into the National Guard to avoid going to Vietnam, and
numerous documents reveal his poor attendance while in the guard -
including a whole year (May through April) of "unobserved" status & a
missed medical appointment.
(b) THE SPIN:
"The Democrats are attacking George Bush because they say the National
Guard is an escape from real service... they're claiming that because
George Bush served in the Guard his service was somehow not as brave as
someone like John Kerry's. But look at how many National Guardsmen
(sic) there are in Iraq today!"

Just looked at voting totals for the Oklahoma Primary, Bush got 59,633
votes to win his primary. Clark got 90,469, heck, Kerry finished third and had 81,012.
So, roughly 300,000 Democrats came out to
vote and 66,000 Republicans voted.
Well, I wondered, how did 1996 go down, this being the last time a sitting President ran, Bill Clinton.
The Republicans had 267,000 voters, Dole getting 157,000 votes. Bill Clinton got 279,000 votes or

Distracted by Janet Jackson's nipple, the media have bought into the claim that the statements made by
Administration officials were based on a "massive intelligence failure." Buying into this framework makes it seem
as if the media suffer from some sort of institutional amnesia. We do not have to wait for the investigation into
whether or not Bush stuffed his crotch before he landed on the Lincoln to know who is responsible for the shaping
of intelligence. When the transcript of Hussein Kamal's interview with UNSCOM/IAEA was published in Newsweek.
On August 26, 2002 "Big Time" Dick told a VFW gathering in Nashville that in 1995 Hussein Kamal had provided
evidence that WMD and WMD programs were continuing in secret even as the UN was about to declare Iraq in
compliance. Hussein Kamal's statements were unequivocal. He said, "All chemical weapons were destroyed."
Concerning the activities of UNSCOM, he said, "You should not underestimate yourself. You are very effective
in Iraq." Further he claimed, "I ordered destruction of all chemical weapons. All weapons - biological, chemical,
missile, nuclear were destroyed." He also said that the factories devoted to weapons programs were changed
to produce pesticides and medicine.
