When the entire world tells you your rape is a bad move, it's probably a bad move.
The man suspected in two dozen sniper shootings that have terrorized motorists
along Ohio highways was arrested at The Stardust motel early Wednesday.
Charles A. McCoy Jr., 28, was taken into
custody two days after he was named
as a suspect in the shootings. Authorities had said McCoy had a history of mental illness
and was believed to be armed, with "suicidal or homicidal tendencies." His family disputed
that description, calling McCoy troubled but peaceful.
Conrad Malsom of Las Vegas said he told
authorities he met McCoy at the Stardust Tuesday.
He said he offered McCoy a slice of pizza but recognized the disheveled-looking man with a darkening beard.
McCoy was reading a copy of USA Today that
featured his photograph, Malsom said.
The USA Today newspaper has some value after all..
"This is an oil-driven war, and I don't think

you need that justification to be able to live with yourself."

A reporter was fired last week and a railroad worker was reprimanded in what several people say
was pay-back for rubbing Effingham County's governmental hierarchy the wrong way.
Effingham Herald reporter Christian
Livemore and Norfolk-Southern
technician Joe Maner - who have
questioned recent County Commission actions - say they're targets of political backlash. Maner still works for the
railroad, but Livemore has lost the reporter's job she held for the last year and a half.
In related developments, Herald reporter
Stephen Sacco was fired for objecting to Livemore's dismissal
and newspaper distributor George Saraf, also mayor of Rincon, resigned.
Karen Tanksley, publisher of the Effingham
Herald, would not discuss specifics of the firings and
resignation but denied that they stemmed from local politics. County Manager David Rutherford and
School Superintendent Michael Moore, also named by Livemore as involved in her firing, deny any
direct connection to the reporter's firing.
"I don't know anything about Christian's situation,''
Moore said Tuesday.
Yes, this is our Christian Livemore,
fired for shining the light on an illegal county deal.
She wouldn't go along with their crooked games because she has too much integrity,
so they fired her in a very BFEE-like move. How dare she tell the truth!!!
You don't fire a reporter for being honest - you give them a raise
and a plaque to hang on the wall.
Christian won a handful of awards in her 18 months at this tiny weekly paper and circulation was up
25 percent because she brought big-city professionalism to this backwater corn cob.
than the Effingham Herald, and they fired Christian for being honest, figuring
she was voiceless.
That's two mistakes they made.
Read the story, and if you think this firing was an unethical,
do Christian and me a favor and write
to a letter to the editor
supporting Christian, and if you feel like it, send an e-mail to the unethical Karen Tanksley and tell her that
reporters are supposed to be honest and they shouldn't be fired for having integrity..
Ms Tanksley might be getting some mail today.
"If the message was to terrorists that we are
willing to take you on,

Halliburton says employees got kickbacks on Iraq work
Halliburton Co., hired to redevelop much of Iraq's oil sector, said yesterday it would compensate
the federal government for $6.3 million in "improper payments" its former employees allegedly
received in exchange for a subcontract awarded to a Kuwaiti firm.
"We are cutting a check to the government just
in case the overbilling charge bears out," said Randy Harl,
president and chief executive of Kellogg, Brown and Root Services, the Halliburton subsidiary implicated
in the alleged kickbacks. "We will bear the cost of the potential overcharge, not the government."
After a few dozen instances of getting caught, it's no longer
I found this stoiry after a reader complained that Halliburton got another no-bid, secretly awarded $7 billion
contract to do soldiers' laundry. Just like the food service, Halliburton doesn't know jack about laundry,
so they took 40 percent off the top and sold the contract for $4 billion to somebody who knew the laundry
business (the 40% is a guess). They're stealing billions at a time and that's just doing the laundry.
Cue the broken record...
The press refuses to do their damn jobs and the Democrats are
still quaking in their boots.
That stolen $3 billion could've gone to Social Security or Medicare, but the Democrats refuse
to do their damn jobs so the BFEE is ready and willing to empty the Treasury right under their noses.

crooked bank deals, crooked oil deals -- All done for money, usually at the expense of US taxpayers.
Dirty money. An international Cabal of oil interests and financial dirty deals.

Just Read The Boston Globe's write up, especially Part 6
I read a story about the great fire that raged thru St Louis in 1849.
It said "a fireman" set two explosives that saved the Old Courthouse
and the Old Cathedral
where my niece was married, and I was struck by the fact they didn't even give his name.
See the Old Courthouse (think Dred Scott) thru the arch, and the Old Cathedral (oldest building
west of the Mississippi - I'm such a racist) between the arch and Busch Stadium.
The poor bastard died in the explosions he set to save those two
buildings and history won't even remember his name?
That ain't right - and I'd like to correct that if possible.

Spain Rejects Bush's War
by Joe Conason
Rather than using the events in Spain to retroactively justify the Bush administration's policy in Iraq,
honest analysis must acknowledge that last year's invasion of Iraq was a serious strategic error.
By rejecting multilateralism in pursuit of their "pre-emptive" doctrine, the President and his advisers
damaged American credibility, weakened the Western alliance and created the situation now being
exploited by Al Qaeda.
[Spain's] resounding rebuke of George W. Bush is the price of deception.

Monkey Mail once removed
Well, let's see. Before I send Clinton to
the showers for being the BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT
as a President in my lifetime, let's see what he did well, or tolerably well. Let's see where he had promise...:
Putting a nutty charge in caps doesn't make it any less nutty.
Clinton was far better than Bush pere, or
Reagan, or Nixon, by default, as all of them moved us down paths
of ruin and destruction. He was less good than Carter and couldn't hold a candle to JFK or LBJ, for that matter,
who had a tremendous legislative record and whose only and fatal disaster was the Vietnam war escalation.
Wait, besides the tens of thousands who needlessly died on his watch, LBJ was better than Clinton?
The best things Clinton did: began a fight for single-payer health coverage for all Americans... but then folded when things got tough.
Well, his party abandoned him, and when that happens it's kinda
tough to get a bill passed.
If you want to say Clinton was stupid enough to trust that Democrats would stand behind him, I could agree.
He was of some use in trying to break down
racial divides and include blacks and browns into the system
and positions of power and influence. And he established sizable public lands areas as monuments and
instituted the Roadless Rule, though far too late for it to become established with permanence.
I think we're dealing with someone who won't admit the sky is
Hard to win a debate with someone like that.
That about gets the good. (If you have other "good facts" about Clinton, please send them.)
Uh, ...the eight years of peace and prosperity should count for
something. The fact that he didn't
lie us into a needless war that killed hundreds of young Americas should mean something, too.
Y'know, every president makes mistakes and has flaws, so all you can do is compare them to each other.
What makes Clinton seem so good to some
(you) in retrospect is the unmitigated villainy and stupidity
and sheer evil of the current sociopath at the helm.
Bush turned peace into war, prosperity into recession and made the world hate us after he bullied
all the other countries and emptied the Treasury - but Clinton is "sheer evil?"
This guy is so bad with the "facts," he qualifies for a show on FOX.
Now on to the tragic disappointment he was, not only to me and his country, but to his mother and
other "slick willy's" who could have glowed sympathetically if BillyJeff Clunkton had had some integrity:
Clinton's first failure was to renege on
supporting gays in the military.
Total wimp-out when the military brasspuffs threatened to...to...what?
I assume this guy is too young (or in denial) to remember the
Sam Nunn, senior Democrat on the Armed Services Committee, told Clinton that gays would be recognized over his dead body.
When your own party announces publicly that they'll fight you to the death, and Koresh knows the GOP joined Nunn in his
condemnation of gays, it's damn hard to get a bill passed. Since Democrats are unwilling to fight ( unless it's another Democrat)
what choice did Clinton have? This Monkey wanted Clinton to declare a civil war on his own party?
He ducked out on universal health care.
We lost the House in 1994 because the Democrats agreed with the GOP that health care was a disaster. Each night,
Democrats lined up to go on TV to condemn Clinton for trying to fix our biggest problem, which, back then, was health care.
If the Democrats are famous for anything, it's backing down and stabbing their own in the back for reasons I can't explain.
He fast tracked NAFTA and GATT. We're still suffering this, and will for some time ahead.
To this day, I can't explain NAFTA and GATT, but Clinton created
22 million jobs and that pisses this monkey off.
Again, all one can do is compare the presidents, and Bush can't even shine Clinton's shoes on job creation.
He cut support for some of the most needy
in the name of "welfare reform" while allowing monstrous welfare for industries
and the military.
Whoa, suddenly he's Patrick Moynihan, another Democrat who hated Clinton's guts and said so, in public, repeatedly.
He hastened the kind of globalization policies that have led to the disastrous exportation of our workforce.
Yeah, blame Clinton for everything - that's the media and
the GOP 24/7.
He failed to defend our forests from corporate banditry.
I'm sorry I got into this.
Blaming Clinton for what Bush is doing to the environment?
Is this crazy bastard kidding?
He failed to fight hard for people he wanted, and who might have been good, in high office.
No, he worked 80-hour weeks, harder than any president of our lifetime, but his party refused to back him up.
And he failed to curb monstrous military spending.
Compared to Bush?
Compared to Bush?
Compared to Reagan?
Compared to LBJ?
Bush raped the Treasury and got 560 soldiers killed, and Clinton's the bad guy
for never sending a soldier into battle who didn't come home alive?
All in all, compared to the rest of the mainly sorry lot, he was about an average President of this ignorant country.
Well, at least he's partially admitting he's an ignorant SOB.
If Clinton was "average" with his American Paradise, how does he rank Bush's Hell on Earth?
I detested his politics and his corporate
co-opted pragmatism expressed in a sell-out of the best of progressive
democratic philosophy. He was a sad failure in office who blew the chance to strive for greatness. And wasn't he
responsible for empowering the DLC, arguably the moderate wing of the Republican party?
He was responsible for winning two elections - the only Democrat
in 60 years to do so.
Is that why this guy hates Clinton so much? Because he wasn't Dukakis, Mondale or Gore?
Now, it's back in your court. If you can
nullify the horrendous nasties I've pointed out with clarity above, please
Otherwise, I'd say your limb is about to fall. Be honest now. No mincing around. Just the facts, sir.
After miles of wild manure, he wants "just the facts?"
This guy's in his own world, and he's not going to let the facts interfere with his opinions.

Subject: you Jew hater
I read that article Monday about your anti-Semitism
and the writer was absolutely right about you.
You hate Jews and are a bigot. I believe I know why now.
You hate Jews because they have the support
of Christians who consider them part of their family
in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Christians protect Jews in today's world and you hate them for it.
You are full of hate for all religious people
except the Muslims. That is so interesting to me.
That is, your love and admiration for Muslims and Arabs just like your heroes Jimmy Carter and Billy Clinton.
Deny it if you can. Nobody now will
I hate Christians because they protect Jews?
Are you saying that because I'm known for being extra religious?
This is like saying I prefer one Nascar driver over another.
I don't do Nascar any more than I do religion, soccer or basketball.
I just don't care.
...and you say I love and admire Muslims and Arabs?
Why would you say that? ...and Carter and Clinton hate the Jews, too?
Your brain needs a religio-ectomy.

Subject: Who I'm voting for and why...
I'm voting for Harvard physicist John Hagelin
for president, because I've been
convinced of the rationality of his unified field theories as they apply to society.
I know what you're thinking--"if you vote
for a third party candidate, you're just
helping George Bush get re-elected."
I only think that because it's true.
But you know as well as I do that John Kerrey ain't nothing but a souped-up version of the same old stuff.
That wild illogic is what gave us The Monster for four years.
If you want to help Bush, at least be honest with yourself.
There will be more illegal American usurpations
of foreign governments no matter which
of these two men are elected, and I'm the one who has to live with my vote.
No, we will all have to live with your mistake, as will the world.
Subject: KSHE Radio in St Louis
I grew up in Florissant, MO - a suburb north

I recognized the lyrics to Golden Country right away - REO was the best back then!
And KSHE radio was THE music force in St. Louis in those days.
Thanks for the time travel back to my high school days with back-to-back mentions of REO and KSHE!
Now if you want to take me back even further
to my elementary days at Sacred Heart
just say something about KXOK and Johnny Rabbit!
Living in Dallas for a long time now. Is
Sweat Meat (the KSHE pig) still around?
I remember KXOK and Johnny Rabbit, but that's yeeeeeears ago,

I look forward every day to a possible new

You have completely turned me off with your belligerent, hate-filled Nader-bashing.
You fill every issue with blasts at the
wimpy, balls-less Democrats, yet fail to make the link
to why people would consider voting for Nader.
Voting for Nader is voting for Bush.
How much simpler could it be?
Trying to argue with you and your choir about this has been hopeless.
Yes, because I refuse to vote for Bush.
Nader has said "Al Gore slipped on 15 banana
peals. I was one of them."
But the facts don't even support this interpretation.
So, you're calling Nader a liar?
I agree Nader wasn't the reason Gore lost, but he was one of them
Ignored further is the fact that Gore ran one of the stupidest campaigns in any of our lifetimes.
I agree with that and have said so many times.
I do not plan on voting for Nader this time
around. But it's for a far more complicated
and fact-based reason than the ridiculous "a vote for Nader is a vote for Bush".
The facts are the facts, and Nader's trying his best to give Bush another four years.
There is nothing a Democrat should be proud of in 2004.
They can be proud that they aren't Bush.
Stop the scapegoating, Bart, et.al. If you
believe in your party, work to fix it.
There are millions upon millions of non-voters out there waiting for you.
All your constant Nader-bashing is doing is pissing off a lot of folks who are not your enemies nor the problem.
Nader can't possibly win, he just wants to help Bush.
What else could explain his ego grab for the spotlight?
If you're smart enough to not vote for Nader this
time, why are you angry with me?
Because I rejected Nader four years before you did?
Do you have an opinion?
Do any GOP impressions?
Then listen for your call on...
You have two minutes to spit your bit.

Bart, to call the Cathedral in St. Louis the "oldest building west of the Mississippi" was grotesquely racist.
No, ...at it's worst, it was my ignorance.
Remember - I have no staff.
I'm just one monkey in Oklahoma who often remembers what he was told.
Why would you assign racism to my reading the plaque on the Old Cathedral wall?
I'm BartCop - I have no intentional racism in me.
Don't propagate the lie that the country
was empty when white people came.
The oldest building in the US is probably the Anasazi Pueblo in Southeastern Colorado:
However, even using white man's history
books, your reckoning isn't even accurate.
The Christo Rey church in Santa Fe, New Mexico was built in 1540.
Across the street is the Pink Adobe restaurant, a Democratic legislative hangout.
The words I published put no money in my pocket.
I misspoke but thought I was speaking the truth.
Yes, it could be racist to say it was the West's "oldest building,"
but I wasn't trying to mislead like the whores you see on the networks and cable shows.
