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...
Show 27 is up - and not just in the members section.
I know what you're thinking...
You've been kinda, sorta, maybe wanting to subscribe, but
with our year of technical troubles,
there were lots better things to do than subscribe to the Tequila Treehouse Radio Show, right?
But what if...?
I got a letter (and a check - thanks!) saying, "Bart,
I'm not too interested in the radio shows.
The last one I heard was Show 19 and it wasn't all that hot. Give us more of the page!"
That means he hasn't heard any of the shows produced by professional
knobber Tommy Mack.
(I'll bet he loves that term.)
What if BartCop Radio was better than you thought it
What if the Okie rube eventually got better at doing this?
What if we did shows more often than we have been?
Tommy's new computer has certainly turbo-charged the time-consuming editing process.
What if all our technical troubles were behind us?
Three working studios on three different computers with a local tech genius on call.
So here's what's up:
Check out these two clips from Show
Show 27 has four parts, so what you'll hear is the lesser half of Show 27.
Part One is what would've happened if I was in the room
with Tim the Whore and The Chimp last Sunday.
Part Two is the part where Tommy joins me in a run thru the headlines of the day.
Alert Republicans sometimes piss me off.
Nothing too extreme, of course,
but if Grandma or the kids are nearby, maybe download the clips so you can hear them in private later.

Stupid me - I thought this might increase subscriptions
It's very humbling. I have learned a valuable lesson, but I'm not sure what it is.
If you would, drop us
a line and tell us your opinion.
Tell us what we're doing right - tell us what we're doing wrong.
If it's better than you thought, consider a subscription.
This is 2004, not 2003.
This year the equipment works and we're going to cover biggest fight we've ever all been in together.
The next nine months will give us the meanest, nastiest
campaign in history.
We intend to be right in the middle of that.

"I am angry that so many of the sons of the
powerful and well-placed managed to wangle
slots in the Army Reserve and National Guard units... Of the many tragedies of Vietnam,
this raw class discrimination strikes me as the most damaging to the ideal that all Americans
are created equal and owe equal allegiance to their country."

Democrats questioning whether Bush ever showed up for duty in Alabama have called on him
to publicize his entire file to put the matter to rest. Though the president promised to do so in an
interview last Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," the White House appeared reluctant until the
mass document release late Friday.
"Our understanding is that this is the
entire file," Bush press secretary Scott McClellan said
with more qualifiers than the Cuban Olympic Boxing squad.
"It's as easy to think the Clintons want to
get back in the White House
as it is to know that Al-Qaeda and Saddam are working together, as far as I'm concerned."

Guerrillas shouting "God is great" launched a bold daylight assault on an Iraqi police station

Airline Apologizes for Christian Remark
The chief executive of American Airlines apologized after the pilot of a recent cross-country
flight got on the intercom and asked all Christians aboard to raise their hands.
The pilot, Rodger K. Findiesen of Annapolis,
Md., has been grounded while the Feb. 7 incident
is investigated, Gerard Arpey said. The pilot of the Los Angeles-to-New York flight asked all
Christians aboard to discuss their faith with their fellow passengers.
"Let me assure you that we take this very seriously
and are conducting a thorough investigation,"
Arpey wrote to Abraham Foxman, director of the Anti-Defamation League, a group that monitors anti-Semitism.
This was stupid of the pilot, but nobody
was hurt - it's about a big a deal as Janet's breast.
Have the pilot promise not to do it again, maybe reread the pilot's manual and move on, OK?

I just listened to part 1 of #27 (while

Keep it up.
For my money, only one reporter in Washington DC has integrity.
Helen Thomas asks the questions the others are too afraid to ask.
Q: Did the President ever have to take time off from Guard duty to do community service?
Scott McClellan: To do community service? I haven't looked into everything he did 30 years ago, Helen.
Q: Can you find out if he actually had --
Scott McClellan: Helen, I don't think we remember every single activity he was involved in 30 years ago.
Q: No, this isn't an activity. Was he forced to do community service at any time while he was on --
Scott McClellan: What's your interest in that question? I'm sorry, I just blah, blah, blah...
Q: Lots of rumors. I'm just trying to clear up something.
Scott McClellan: Rumors about what?
Q: About the President having to do community service while he was in the National Guard, take time out for that.
Scott McClellan: I'm not aware of those rumors. But if you want to blah, blah, blah...
Q: Could you look it up? Would you mind asking him?
Scott McClellan: That's why I'm asking what's your interest in that? I just blah, blah, blah...
Q: It's what everybody is interested in, whether we're getting the true story on his Guard duty.
Scott McClellan: Well, you have the documents that show the facts, blah, blah, blah....
Q: I'm asking you to try to find out from the President of the United States.
Scott McClellan: Like I said, it's well known the different jobs he had and what he was doing previously, blah, blah, blah...
Q: I didn't say "previously." I said, while he was on Guard duty.
Scott McClellan: But you're asking me about 30 years ago. I don't think there's a recollection of blah, blah, blah...
Q: Well, he would know if he had to take time out.
Scott McClellan: Again, I mean, the issue that was raised was whether or not the President was blah, blah, blah...
Q: Well, this is another issue.
Scott McClellan: -- hold on -- that he was serving in Alabama. That was the issue that was raised. We went through blah, blah, blah...
Q: So you won't answer the question or you won't try to find out?
Scott McClellan: Well, I'm asking you, what's your interest in that question? I'm just curious, because blah, blah, blah...
Q: Did he have to do any community service while he was in the National Guard?
Scott McClellan: Look, Helen, I think the issue here was whether or not the President served in blah, blah, blah...
Q: I'm asking you a different question. That's permissible.
Scott McClellan: Can I answer your question? Sure it is. Can I ask you why you're asking it? I'm just blah, blah, blah...
Q: Well, I'm interested, of course, in what everybody is interested in. And we have a very --
Scott McClellan: Let me just point out that we've released all the information we have related to this issue, the issue of blah, blah, blah...
Q: I asked you whether he had to do any community service while he was in the National Guard.
Scott McClellan: Can I walk through this? blah, blah, blah...
Q: It's a very legitimate question.
Check her out!
McClellan is doing everything he can to redefine her question.
She wants to know why Bush had to do community
service - and for what crime and that crooked bastard
McClellan is afraid of the truth. He's not able to answer the question asked, so he changes her question.
Instead of being docile, instead of being another tool through which Karl Rove can spew his fascist propaganda,
instead of trading her integrity for a bullshit, screw-my-profession nickname, she's doing her goddamn job,
which is more than we can day about any other reporter in Washington Whore DC.
Helen, a shot of Chinaco Anejo for you, Babe!

Subject: anti-gun idiots
Just a note to first express my appreciation
for your website and confess my embarrassment at having not
become a subscriber. I am a Business Representative for The Carpenters Union St Louis District Council.
I've always been politically active and can offer no excuse for not helping your cause which I believe is most admirable.
The main reason I write is that because
I see from time to time you take flack from the anti-gun crowd. While you
handle yourself well it's some times like pissing up a rope isn't it? Starting in February of 03 my wife and I became victims
of a delusional stalker (mainly my wife). The Local Sheriffs Department could never seem to find the time or resources to put
this freak in lock down where he belonged till the court system could do what would be necessary. He had numerous felony
charges pending, his first lawyer filed the paperwork necessary to have himself removed from the case and yet no one in the
Sheriffs department saw fit to lock him down to keep my wife and myself safe.
I had pleaded with other law enforcement
for help but jurisdictional lines can not be crossed and so it goes. On
February 6th of
this year it came to an end that I knew was going to happen regardless of what the Sheriffs Department believed. At 11:00pm
after I had been asleep for over an hour and just minutes after my wife had come to bed. This freak kicked in our back door,
and, leaning over the footboard of our bed, he began to shoot me as I slept. My wife jump out of bed ran around the footboard
grabbing the barrel of the rifle and took two rounds in the arm. Her quick reaction allowed me time to grab my pistol from the
night stand and put an end to our nightmare. If not for the unbelievable bravery of my wife and a Model 21 Glock neither one
of us would be alive today. Those who do not think handguns should be allowed in this country can Kiss My Very Lucky Ass.
Not to brag except for the bravery of my wife, but thought our story might help to argue your point with the anti-gun idiots.
The story may be verified on the websites
of the St Louis Post Dispatch, The
Rolla Daily News, and
The Springfield Leader or through a Google search. Phelps County Man shoots home invader.
Thanks again so much for your good work and continued success.

Jim, that's scary stuff.
A while back, I told about being in a cheap Dallas motel when some nut started banging on the door very hard.
I pointed my old Glock at the door. Had it flown open, I was going to check for a uniform and if he wasn't wearing one,
I was plenty willing to take my chances with a jury instead of this invading, drunken handjob.
Besides, it was f-ing Texas where guns are worshiped almost as much as football
I'm glad you and your wife are alive to tell the story.

Fair use of the goatfucker axiom? Why, of course: the goatfucker-in-chief, George Bush. He's reached that point where
anything he says is immediately suspect because he's been caught, very publicly, in a lie that turns him into a murderer.
So, while strategists wonder what has gone wrong, why Bush's approval rating has plummeted like so many barrels over
the falls, the answer is simple: he's fucked the goat. No one can look at him without thinking, "How do I know he's not lying?
He stated something as a fact that wasn't a fact. He's lying just like his father did when he said 'Read my lip' and then raised taxes.
Why should I trust a liar?"
Fidel Castro resorted to humor on Saturday to defend himself from U.S. hostility, ridiculing Bush for his many gaffes.
"Bush could not debate a Cuban ninth grader, who
knows more than he does," Castro said in a speech closing an
international conference of economists hosted by his communist government.
Castro had his audience of 1,400 economists
in stitches when he read out some of Bush's more unfortunate statements.
Among other gaffes, Castro quoted Bush as saying: "I will have a foreign-handed foreign policy;" "I know how hard it is
for you to put food on your family;" "More and more of our imports come from overseas;" and "The most important job
is not to be governor, or first lady in my case."
He is such a horrible ambassador for this once great country.
He's stupid and doesn't care to learn and he swaggers and smirks when he realizes how ignorant he is.
I'll bet our "friends and allies" talk about that simpleton behind closed doors the way Bush talks about blacks.

"The White House released documents it claims
validates the president's (National Guard) service.
When deciphered the documents showed that in a one-year period, 1972 and 1973, Bush received
credit for nine days of active National Guard service. The traditional term of service then and now
for the National Guard is one weekend a month and two full weeks a year, meaning that Bush's
nine-day stint qualifies him only for the National Guard's National Guard.
That's the National Guard's National Guard, an Army of None."

Vanishing oil and gas could prompt birth rate nosedive
Dwindling oil and natural gas reserves could cause birth rates to plummet over the coming decades, it has been claimed.
Despite continuing high consumption, experts
had calculated that production of petroleum and liquid natural gas will
a plateau and then decline within five to 10 years. Professor Abernethy said: "The improving standard of living to which
many societies have become accustomed will be difficult to maintain in the face of rapidly rising prices for energy.

Just pick him up there and you wouldn't endanger the rest of the people.
Don, if you're asking if someone screwed

and then lighting it is the wrong way to address a government screw-up. Religious insanity killed those kids,
but yes, grabbing him in town would've been better. I have a feeling "Bush's ATF" wanted a cute headline.
I say "Bush's ATF" the same way we say "Clinton's military took Baghdad in three weeks."
The GOP was so determined to hang the Waco disaster on Clinton,
personally, did they ever
bother to investigate why the ATF didn't grab Koresh peacefully in town as you suggest?

Swarm on Alabama in Pursuit of 'AWOL' Story
Four years late, the lazy press start doing their jobs?
Newspaper and wire service reporters from around the country are swarming around Montgomery, Ala.
in search of anyone who can remember Bush serving time at the local air base in 1972. For the most part,
they have come up empty so far.
The New York Whore Times, for example, has
tracked down 16 retired personnel who served at the based in 1972
and none could recall seeing Bush. Closer to home, Alabama papers have apparently done relatively little digging at and
around Dannelly Air Base, a compound located next to Montgomery's airport, judging from the scant reports on their online archives.

Subject: FOX News and the AWOL President
I don't watch FOX but, just now while passing
through, i heard them announce
"white house releases hundreds of documents proving president served honorably and even
a commendation as a review as a great leader"... So I watched.
They kept saying, "...in Texas" and "in
1970 and 1971". Then they interviewed someone
who served with him in 1971 in Texas who said, "He was there. He's getting a raw deal
on this from the Democrats." The tone of voice of the female announcer was like a proud
glowing mother who had just discovered her son had heroically saved several small children
from a sex maniac. There was no mention of Alabama OR 1972.
...and this is considered journalism in GWB's America?
Robert - it sure is.
These days, "journalism" is acheived by having more viewers than the other guy,

Letter to Commondreams.org
Feb. 13, 2004
To the Editor:
I appreciate your Web site and think you do a good job overall of informing the progressive community about important stories and issues.
But your link to the Editor & Publisher
piece about an alleged affair involving John Kerry was questionable, to
say the least. Have you linked
to or done anything on the death of a Texas woman named Margie Schoedinger, who filed a sexual assault lawsuit against George W. Bush
in December 2002? She wound up dead last September. I didn't find anything on her when searching your site.
Have you linked to other rumors of infidelity
against Bush, such as one that was publicized somewhat during the 2000
campaign in which
another Texas woman named Tammy Phillips said she and Bush had an affair in the late 1990s when he was Texas governor? Again, I did
not find her name on your site.
If the mainstream and alternative media
covers and pursues these rumors against Kerry, I should hope the press
will play fair and give equal
time to those against Bush.
That should particularly be the case when
you publish something that doesn't even feature the woman's name in the
Kerry case, whereas in
the Bush instances, we have the names and even links to public documents

"We want to disassociate ourselves from the comments which were broadcast last night because
we do not support them in any way," junior government minister Mauril Belanger told Parliament.
At one point in the show, Triumph the Insult
Comic Dog -- a hand puppet that is a regular on the show

"I can smell your crotch from here."
What did they expect from an Insult Dog?
"It's great to be in your wonderful city?"
O'Brien's team were also shown replacing street signs in the province with those that read "Quebecqueer Street" and "Rue des Pussies."
Alexa McDonough, a legislator for the left-leaning
New Democrats, described the program as "racist filth" and "utterly vile"
and demanded the government seek the return of the C$1 million subsidy.

If you need a scandal - that sounds like a good one to me.
"There may be those who would say, 'Isn't this
interfering with freedom of expression?' It's not interfering to say we
publicly fund this kind of vile, vicious hatemongering," McDonough told reporters.

the economy has lost its pulse and Greenspan's trying to shock a heartbeat out of it.
And that horseshit
about 2 million new jobs this year - are you a gambler?
Bush has never had a month where he didn't lose jobs.
Why (besides you being a whore) would cause you to say Bush is going to unsink the Titanic?
If I can find a Democrat to qualify the bet (I'd need the right
wording) I'll bet $100
Bush can't create 2 million jobs this year like this liar Kudlow suggests - any takers?

American soldier body count in Iraq
Bush lied, and caused 540 to die - and counting.
Justin Raimondo is an antiwar member of the paleoconservative movement - the small government,
libertarian republican, isolationist types. he brings up in this article, among other things i agree and
disagree with, an interesting point about W and Vietnam:
If we on the left believe 'Nam was immoral
and never should have been fought, why do we blame W for skipping out?
While I am not wholly convinced of his argument, i do think it deserves some consideration in the discourse.
Dann, people like Clinton tried to stop
that war, but people like Bush claimed they loved that war
but he was rich enough to love it without getting near it - that's the hypocrisy.
Another way to look at it - Clinton wanted
names on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in DC
but, just like with Iraq, Republicans think more soldiers should die to make the rich richer.
Something on your mind?

Ed Gillespie - whore
On Meet the Press Sunday, Ed Gillespie (RNC

saying that John Kerry is a bad man. Gov Dean, at some point, will you shut up?
Lately, I can't tell Dean's Kerry attacks from White House Kerry attacks.
Gillespie spent the other half blaming 9-11
for the fact that the Deserter-in-Thief
has lost 2 million jobs with his disasterous tax cuts for the already super-rich.
You've seen this before and you're going to see it a lot this year.
Bush has $170 million to drill home the lie that 9-11 caused all
of America's problems.

Yes, Democrats are race baiters. They use blacks and other minorities to gain political power.
So, you're saying blacks are too stupid
to vote for the people who love them - the all-white GOP?
It is obvious to me that they are insincere. No, blacks aren't stupid. You said it, I didn't.
No, I asked a question. You have failed
to explain yourself, so I'm on a fishing expedition
trying to decifer what incoherent thoughts are bouncing around in your rattled Republican brain.
Blacks have been deceived and duped into believing Democrats actually care about them.
Looks to me like you just called all African
