"I was depressed. I am obviously a supporter
of the war, so I don't need to be convinced.
But among people who were doubtful or worried, I don't think he made arguments that

King shaken, begs UN for help
Never-elected Fraud in trouble even Daddy can't fix
With a truce crumbling and Bush calling for a key U.N. role to keep Iraq's political
transition moving amid the violence, a top U.N. envoy proposed an Iraqi caretaker
government in a formula that abandons a U.S.-favored plan.
The killing of an Italian security guard
is the first known execution of a foreign hostage
in Iraq and could further dissuade international aid workers, contractors and journalists,
some of whom are already restricting their activities in the country. Wednesday, Russia
announced it will evacuate its citizens.
With 22 foreigners currently held captive
and at least 87 U.S. troops killed by mid-April,
the unprecedented violence has largely eclipsed the political process. .
Besides a sudden and not-gonna-happen Iraqi surrender, what can save Bush's Folly?
"I will remake Earth in Iraq's image, and,
so help me Diebold, nothing can stop me..."
What matters more is the phrase Bush used five times in one way or another: "We're changing the world."
He used it always in reference to the war in Iraq and he used it in ways that would make even Woodrow Wilson,
that presidential personification of naive morality, shake his head in bemusement. In Bush's rhetoric, a war to rid
Hussein of his weapons of mass destruction, a war to ensure that Condoleezza Rice's "mushroom cloud" did not
appear over an American city, has mutated into an effort to reorder the world.
"I also know that there's an historic opportunity
here to change the world,' Bush said of the effort in Iraq.
But the next sentence was even more disquieting. "And it's very important for the loved ones of our troops
to understand that the mission is an important, vital mission for the security of America and for the ability to
change the world for the better." It is one thing to die to defend your country. It is quite another to do that
for a single man's impossible dream. What Bush wants is admirable. It is not, however, attainable.
The nut-freak is getting his orders directly
from God, like The Son of sam, or that Texas mother who killed her
by beating their heads in with rocks. Plus, he keeps changing the reason why we had to rape Iraq. First is was
to protect America's East Coast from "imminent danger." Then it was "to save the world from the most dangerous
man in the world's most dangerous region. Then it was "to introduce democracy to the Middle East.". Then it was
"to free the Iraqi people," and now his personal Invisible Cloud Being is telling him that he needs to do to the people
of the whole world what the crazy bastard has done to the people of Iraq.
Oh Lord, what did we do to make you so terribly angry at us?
Please God, bring back Nixon and Reagan
- they were crooks, but they were relatively harmless.
Couldn't we have Moses's seven plagues instead of this Disaster Monkey?

"After about 45 minutes, [Bush] seemed to fade
a bit. His dodge of the Mike Allen question about
why he was testifying jointly with Dick Cheney before the 9/11 Commission was so transparent it
was hard to watch. His fumble of the Sammy Sosa/mistakes question was also cringe-inducing..."

America Radio Yanked in L.A, Chicago
Air America attorney David Goodfriend said it had stopped payment on the checks
because Multicultural was selling time on the California station it had already leased to
the new network. "We are not going to be bullied," Goodfriend said Wednesday, after
the network filed suit in State Supreme Court in New York demanding that it be restored
to the airwaves. Broadcasts in New York and the network's more than a dozen other
affiliates were not affected.
The whores at CNN are reporting this story with such breathless
"After only two weeks, Air America is already off the air," as if to suggest they
figured they'd have a four-week run, and they did even worse than CNN expected.
They want to be FOX Whore News sooooooooooooo badly.

"In accordance with the blustering attitude always favored by the Bush White House, Mr. Ashcroft
kept calling himself "tough" during his appearance before the 9/11 commission. Then he tried to shift
blame to his predecessors and to former President Bill Clinton.
Like Mr. Ashcroft, the administration has
taken an unapologetic stance: to change the subject, to filibuster
the hard questions, to feign toughness and to portray all critics as unreasonable partisans. The administration's
principal argument seems to be that the attacks of Sept. 11 could not have been prevented because there was
no specific warning about when, where and by what means Al Qaeda's assassins planned to strike.
Yet the President will still have to explain
why he and his cabinet performed so feebly back then. That old
"blame Clinton" theme accompanied Mr. Bush's entry into the Oval Office - and if he doesn't come up with
anything more convincing, it may serve as his exit music, too."

Subject: Gotta go
Gotta go, Ol Bart.
First I read Stan Goff's article at Counterpunch.org.
Then last night I heard Mike Ruppert (fromthewilderness.com)
and have decided that they are right.
Ruppert said that deciding between Bush and Kerry is like deciding if you want to be ruled by the
Gambinio Crime Family or the Gotti Crime Family.
So, you're working to elect the Bush Monster?
Because two web sites (allegedly) claimed that Kerry = Bush?
I'll bet neither web site owner would defend that in our live chat room.
Are they saying Kerry would get 700 soldiers killed for no reason?.
I read or heard someone say 30 years ago
"If voting really made any difference it would be banned."
I never forgot the comment so it must have made an impression on me.
So goodbye, Ol Bart. I have enjoyed your humor for a couple of years.
For me...I have decided to make a living by SHORTING evil stocks.
I think I will start off with the MOST evil...Walmart. Then there is GE. And EXXON.
Oh me. There is NO shortage of stocks to short.
In your confusion, you apparently have decided that I am Wal-Mart,
GE and Exxon/Mobile.
That makes me think I'm not losing a lot by your self-imposed exile from common sense.
Join me Bart.
Let someone else into the "Let's Change Things" game.
Let's me and you short Walmart.
Wait, first you say, "Goodbye" and
then you say, "Join me?"
Is that an empty bottle of Cuervo Gold in your hand?
You didn't say if you were dropping out or voting Nader,
but either action makes the BFEE stronger - you can't see that?
Reading bartcop.com does not

and fromthewilderness.com the best of luck and long lives.

"So, ...work harder!"
Some Nevada senior citizens say they fear losing their homes to the state after the Nevada
Supreme Court upheld state liens on the estates of people who received Medicaid health care costs.
"They should warn people when they receive Medicaid
that they are given a loan," said Henry
Ringel, 79, of Las Vegas. "I love this country, but when we pass away we won't be able to leave
our son anything. I worked for our home and now they can steal it away." .

First-time claims for state unemployment benefits climbed to 360,000

The increase in initial claims was the largest weekly rise since December 2002.

"Bush was on TV Tuesday holding a press conference.
The Fox Network
postponed "American Idol" due to the conference. Even though it wasn't on,
many confused fans still called in trying to vote for the old white rapper."
President George Bush was yesterday struggling to prevent the escalating violence in Iraq
from engulfing his re-election campaign, after his worst political week this year triggered
bipartisan calls for a rethink of US strategy there.
Fighting spread across the country as the
US-led coalition fought a two-front war against Sunni
rebels concentrated in the western town of Falluja and a radical Shia uprising in south and central Iraq.
Thirty American soldiers and 130 Iraqis
have been killed since the weekend in Falluja, where heavy
combat continued last night. Unconfirmed reports said US planes fired rockets yesterday, destroying
four houses and killing 26 Iraqis.
"Bush clearly did not stretch himself on the
Aug. 6 memo. No evidence has yet been offered
that he interrupted his summer vacation or called any meetings to consider its implications.
The same Bush stretched Saddam's false threat to the point where seven out of 10 Americans
believed Saddam played a role in 9/11. Bush pleads ignorance on Al Qaeda. He pleads ignorance
on Iraq's nonexistent weapons of mass destruction. It will always be unclear whether a less ignorant
Bush could have prevented 9/11. It is crystal clear that Bush's ignorant rush into Iraq has resulted
in the deaths of thousands of people. Bush is gambling that ignorance over intelligence is bliss."

The only way for Democrats to defeat the White House's fanatical culture of fear,
greed and disunity is by asking the best, not the worst, of Americans.
To be honest, Arianna's Treehouse privileges were suspended last
year because of her apparent
(I don't have a staff) disregard for the wishes of the 2002 California voters by endorsing the historical
and ill-fated recall that put Culli-fornia under the thumb of an uneducated, privileged and wealthy moron.
Some might call her California's Nader, but that's probably too harsh.
I didn't used to like her,
but then she came over to the good side,
and I really enjoyed her writings for several years,
but then she suffered an anti-democratic relapse last year,
and now she's back to help us make America less Nazi-dependent.
I say we let Arianna back in the Treehouse.
Subject: Taking responsibility for 9-11
Bushie is unable to understand why people
think he should take any sort of personal responsibility for 9/11.
Should he? After all, it was the terrorists who did it! Let's examine some analogies...
Let's say that I'm your bodyguard.
You and I are walking through New York City, in a good area, when we are
suddenly attacked by a larger group of muggers. I fight back but am overwhelmed, and you are injured and robbed.
Since you hired me to prevent such an attack, I must take personal responsibility -- even though the muggers carried
out the attack and I had done everything I could to prevent it.
Now let's look at a much closer analogy.
I'm still your bodyguard and we still walk through New York. I tell
to take a short cut through a bad part of town, even though it's obvious that two people dressed like we are,
looking like we do, will be targets. When a group of muggers attacks, I jump out of the way, hide in a doorway,
and try to look up what to do in my bodyguard handbook. In the meantime, the muggers injure and rob you.
In this case I'm not just responsible, I'm criminally negligent.
And yet, the Bush administration's actions
regarding 9/11 fit the second analogy well. They knew--as did the
entire thinking world--that we were in a bad area, having received a lot of "chatter" about al Qaeda threats.
They increased pressure on the Taliban, threatening them, even though they knew al Qaeda controlled the Taliban.
When al Qaeda attacked, they did nothing at all to help New York -- no jet fighters to defend the city (or Washington,
for that matter) -- while Bush read his manual (called Cheney), and ran and hid.
Personal responsibility for 9/11?
Bush was criminally negligent, and should be prosecuted.
Hell, even Reagan was more willing to take responsibility.
Remember when the Marines were attacked
and at least Reagan admitted that it happened on his watch?

the going gets tough, Bush goes fishing
by Gene Lyons
Rice was talking about the Bush administration's pre-9/11 failure to
comprehend the terrorist threat and not something truly important like sex.
Otherwise, people might have noticed that her testimony made Bill Clinton's
accounts of his Oval Office exploits look comparatively straightforward.
After all, when Clinton told the nation that he "did not have sexual relations
with that woman, Miss Lewinsky," it was technically true. Sexual intercourse
But when Rice, smiling inappropriately like
a poorly rehearsed Miss Alabama
contestant, repeatedly testified under oath that an Aug. 6 presidential daily briefing,
or PDB, "was historical information based on old reporting, there was no new
threat information, and it did not, in fact, warn of any coming attacks inside the
United States," well, that wasn't even technically true.
Note from Bart: Old timers might remember during the first Bush-caused Gulf War,
while men were dying in the 120 degree sand, Bush the Smarter was pictured riding
around in his cigarette boat off Kennebunkport saying, "What recession?"
Why can't the Bush family learn from past mistakes?
Because they refuse to admit they've ever made any.

Somehow, the BFEE will find a way to profit from that, too.

minor temblors and historical patterns in seismic hotspots that could indicate more violent shaking is on the way.
And he has made a chilling prediction that a 6.4 quake southern California by September 5.
