Today's Tequila Treehouse...
Quote of the Day
"I just want the questions to be asked.
"The ball has landed in the centre of the White
House. Let's hope that this victory
permits the government of the US to respect the government and people of Venezuela."
--President Hugo Chávez, saying his recall victory ion Venezuela would be like a baseball
being hit all the way to Washington, Attribution
Hugo, don't hold your breath waiting for America's illegal thugs
to respect Democracy.
America has lost our Constitution, remember?
Intelligence matters more than character
"Three-plus years later we know better, or at least we should. Intelligence matters. The job of the president
is not to love his wife; it's to manage a wide range of complicated issues. That requires character, yes, but not
the kind of character measured by private virtues like fidelity to spouse and frequency of quotations from Scripture.
Yet it also requires intelligence. It requires intellectual curiosity, an ability to familiarize oneself with a broad range
of views, the capacity -- yes -- to grasp nuances, to foresee the potential ramifications of one's decisions, and, simply,
to think things through. Four years ago, these were not considered necessary pieces of presidential equipment.
Today, they have to be."
We remember the summer of 2000, when Rush led the entire media
"There's no need for the president to be the smartest man in the room."
Tell that to the 944 families who lost loved ones in Iraq.
Everybody knew Gore was 20 times smarter than the Monkey Governor,
but Gore sighed at the debates and that was rude ...so ...let's go with the Monkey!
Almost half of America did that.
"We are past the stages of terrorism. What
you see now is the elimination of the
last pockets and the chasing of the last remainders. We directly went to the heads
of the snakes to cut them off, and we know the tails are a group of our sons who went astray.
We know how to deal with them and how to bring them back to the right path."
--Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah, (Bush's Unka) who must be getting his intel from our CIA, Attribution
Ann Slanders: The blonde assassin
"Reactions to her name (which is almost universally recognised in the States) are, unsurprisingly,
sharply partisan, and she is cordially detested by the liberals she targets. Al Franken devoted two
chapters of his book Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them to her - "Ann Coulter: Nutcase"
and "You Know Who I Don't Like? Ann Coulter".
Not that she would care. Her next book,
due out in October, is called How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must).
And even this relatively emollient title is a concession. 'They pushed this title on me," Coulter says
when we meet. "All my titles were much more vicious. What I didn't like about How to Talk to a Liberal
is that I really think the best way to talk to one is to hit them in the head with a baseball bat.
So I threw in the parenthetical If You Must.'"
You can tell Slanders is a Nazi because she'd use violence to get people to agree with her.
"The Oval Office is a powerful place. It's
the kind of place where my mother
walks in and feels so overwhelmed, she won't tell me what to do."
--Dubya, August 10th, Niceville, Florida, Attribution
"The Oval Office is a powerful place. It's
-- you know, people walk in and just get
overwhelmed by the majesty of this shrine to democracy. The only person I know
that didn't was my mother, who walked in and continued to tell me what to do."
--Dubya, two days later in Las Vegas, calling himself a liar Attribution
"Shrine to democracy," my ass.
Is that the room where you and Ashcroft burned the Bill of Rights?
"It's hard remembering what the truth is all the time..."
Daniel Pearl family asks Cheney to knock it off
"The family of Daniel Pearl, a US journalist who was beheaded in Pakistan two years ago,
urged US politicians not to use the reporter's name for political reasons after Dick Cheney
invoked Pearl's name during a campaign event.
"The family of Daniel Pearl respectfully requests
that his legacy remains non-partisan,"
The Wall Street Journal reporter's relatives said in a statement responding to Cheney's comments.
"We would like him to be remembered for what he was in his life, a passionate American and
humanist who rose above political, religious and cultural divisions," the family said."
Subject: Kerry's war support
You're absolutely right about Kerry trying to lose the election.
Bush gave him a clear opportunity to stand
up and say, "Hell no I wouldn't have
supported the war given what I know now; what sane person would?"
That alone would have earned my vote, despite
his generally pro-corporation
economics, unwillingness to really address the deficit, unwillingness to take on Bush
on his total destruction of the planet, health-care plan that mostly subsidizes the
insurance industry instead of reforming it, etc. But now he's totally blown it.
Rob, yes, there are a hundred better answers Kerry could've given
If nothing else, he could've remembered what he told Rolling Stone and said
"Had I known you were going to fuck up everything, I would've voted no."
If you were haunted by "Fahrenheit 9/11",
will give you nightmares.
Meet Karl Rove,
the most powerful political figure America has never heard of.
"Today, because the world acted with courage
and moral clarity...
Iraqi athletes are competing in the Olympic Games."
--Dubya, 8/14/04 Attribution
"Iraq sent a four-athlete team...to the 2000
Olympics in Sydney."
--U.S. State Department, Attribution
Four Iraqi athletes in Athens- a thousand dead American soldiers?
Did Bush strike a good deal for America?
National Service Act of 2003
Have you always wanted a free trip to Iraq?
The language of this bill mandates a national service obligation for every U.S. citizen and
permanent resident, aged 18-26. It authorizes the President to establish both the number of
people to be selected for military service, and the means of selection. Additionally, the measure
requires those not selected specifically for military service to perform their national service
obligation in a civilian capacity for at least two years.
"You can't think life isn't a free ride..."
Subject: Loving the Amsterdam reports
You must recruit a European correspondent.
I would enoy that immensely, and I bet others would too.
Perhaps someone would contribute a weekly
"what do foreigners think of our shit" type article,
sprinkled with cultural anecdotes, and some stuff about their domestic politics etc.
Food for thought.
JAG, I like that idea.

Tracks Potential GOP Protesters
If Karl Rove eyes your web site, you might get a visit
by Paul Krugman
"Everyone knows it, but not many politicians or mainstream journalists are willing
to talk about it, for fear of sounding conspiracy-minded: there is a substantial chance
that the result of the 2004 presidential election will be suspect.
When I say that the result will be suspect,
I don't mean that the election will, in fact,
have been stolen. (We may never know.) I mean that there will be sufficient uncertainty
about the honesty of the vote count that much of the world and many Americans will have serious doubts.
How might the election result be suspect?
Well, to take only one of several possibilities, suppose that Florida - where recent polls
give John Kerry the lead - once again swings the election to George Bush."
We covered this in BCR 50.
What happens when all the polls show Kerry clearly winning Florida,
but Diebold and Jeb claim the never-elected Governor actually won?
Will we let them steal it again, like last time?
Sure we will - we're Democrats - we don't want it bad enough to fight for it.
But if Kerry wins Florida, and Bush hints there might've been
a voting problem,
hundreds of thousands of armed Republicans could take to the streets to protest
the "illegal" Kerrry administration and then what do we do?
Can you say, "Tanks in the streets?
Or are all our tanks in Iraq?
Will the unarmed, polite, gentle left let them steal another presidency?
"God told Pat Robertson I won 2004 in a blow job - I mean blow out..."
Letter from Iraq
I'm actually not doing so well right now.
I have been working with one of the Army
Special Forces teams for the past few weeks
and have made some pretty good friends with a few of them. Last evening they went on
a raid, accompanied by some Iraqi National Guard guys, and none of them made it back.
It's weird, I just shook Mike's (team commander)
hand right before they left last evening
for the mission, told him to be safe, and I hear he took one in the face. I fucking hate this place.
The Iraqis we've have been training are
the biggest cowards I have ever seen. They are in it
for the money and nothing else. They don't care if they have a free and safe country to live in.
They join the Iraqi police force or the
National Guard, and they run if the shit starts to hit the fan.
I have no respect for any of these people over here. Anyway, I'm sorry about venting to you Susan,
I am just a little upset about the incident last evening.
It that letter had made some wild claim, I wouldn't have printed
But I wonder how many tens of thousands of our soldiers have had days like Jason had?
Subject: Your choice of cartoons
A couple of observations: Weakly World
News is funny.
Did you hear Jab/Jeb actually saying that God sent the hurricane on the course it took,
regardless of our best scientific machine's predictions? He did . I heard it twice.
(I worked evacuation Cutler Ridge, hurricane Andrew, awful day).
Bush One, Boob the First, flew in and flew
out of Homestead AFB and it took almost a week for any help to arrive.
First and only time I saw actual looting, low grade, a dairy drive-in. Stuff would have gone bad anyway.
Steve Bradenton's cartoon, love children,
Republican Press's stuff makes me laugh, too.
Finally, here in the crotch of the bible
belt, S.C., the big-ass Caddys, Buicks, Imperials, (do they still make
are beginning to discretely display really small tasteful political stickers. One is simply "W" and the other "Dubya".
They're not in too much of a hurry to show what ass's they are, I guess.
Picked up on a couple of issues I missed.
The convention may have been routine, but you still are bright.
Wish you were paid what you're worth!
Liz, please don't wish that on me.
I'd like to make enough to pay the bills :)
"In the name of Jesus, I can't stand it any
more. How many MORE people will our government
blow up and maim and kill? Thousands dead? Tens of thousands dead? Hundreds of thousands dead?
Millions dead? When will my country's armies stop the killing in Iraq? When will they finally say,
"We have won the war on Iraq." When every man, woman and child in that country is dead?"
Where is the moral justification for thousands and thousands and thousands of deaths?
Ask Hitler. Ask Stalin. Ask George W. Bush. There is none."

Olympics a Big Bust?
Not sure why, but the Olympics doesn't interest me at all this
It's mostly NBC's fault - whenever I check the unreadable TV Guide,
all I see is archery, women's basketball, volleyball, men's losing basketball.
They say some events are only attended by a few hundred people.
I accidentally (trust me) saw some tennis last night, and it seemed like
only one seat in ten had a butt in it.
Is it Athen's fault for not appearing to be ready?
Is terrorism the big factor?
Is it the Americans-on-dope factor?
Maybe people turned off when they see Bob (motormouth) Costas.
We taped the opening ceremony, but I knew Costas would ruin every
surprise so I figured we'd watch the tape later - but who has the time?
Plus, the hype that that Phelps guy would win 60 medals was overblown.
Poor guy, has he won more than one gold?
Maybe if NBC loses hundred of millions of dollars they'll
learn not to do this,
but, like FOX and baseball, they seem to not mind losing megatons of dollars
as long as they have the "prestige" of broadcasting this "big event."
Have I mentioned lately what a whore Wolf Blizter is?
As I type this, (11:15 CST) Wolf is screaming, "Sex,
lies and audiotape" as he breathlessly
describes Scott Peterson's grade-schoolish, puppy-love talk with the stripper, Amber Frey.
Hey Wolf, that might've been half-cute 15
years ago when the movie came out.
Who's writing your copy, Dennis Miller?
At the risk of sounding pro-murder (that saved you, the reader,
the time to wrote) is there a chance Amber Frey
will come out of this looking like Linda Tripp? To me, she's coming off like some Nancy Drew-wannabe,
making over 300 phone calls to Scott Peterson trying to get him to admit he killed his wife
If Amber's phone calls, playing Lil' Detective, are the state's best chance at nailing him, - is that good?
If Peterson didn't realize those 300 phone calls, grilling him
about "Did you sleep with your wife
the might before she went missing?" was a trap, he should at least go to jail for felony stupidity.
Do you think Peterson, Kobe, Michael Jackson et al will be done with in our lifetimes?

Canada may fuel boom in pot exports to US
The U.S. seized more than 48,000 lbs. of marijuana along the Canadian border last year,
nearly double the 26,000 lbs. it retrieved in 2002, according to a U.S. State Department report.
There have been seizures all along the border, in Montana, North Dakota, Michigan, Ohio and
other states. Canadian pot has cachet in the U.S. because of its reputation for being especially
potent. The featured brand is BC Bud - which is grown in British Columbia and has become
synonymous with the high-grade marijuana grown throughout Canada. Once in the U.S., the pot
is exchanged for cash, and sometimes cocaine or guns, which are then smuggled back to Canada.
48,000 pounds of pot, at $3,000 a pound is $144 million dollars worth - wholsale.
Retail (just quessing) that number goes to $6000 per pound minimum.
Then figure they probably catch ten percent or less of the shipments, that makes $288 million.
Now, tax $288 million dollars at, say, ten percent, and some government just made $28 million dollars.
Just think if they made table salt illegal.
People would start smuggling table salt, and it might sell for $100 an ounce.
Some people who traffic in salt would be caught and sent to prison for a long time, thereby
ruining their marriages and families and costing the taxpayers millions to house and feed them.
So, we can ruin lives and spend billions providing cages for them,
We could stop lying to ourselves about a boogyman that doesn't exist.

Kerry can still win this - but he's got to stop handing the Nazis ammo every day.
Is the hurricane body count accurate?
rumormillnews.com has eye witnesses reports
".in Punta Gorda ...we were stopped by FEMA, National Guard, and STATE POLICE who asked me to prove
I had a reason to be there. I told them the exact name and address of my relative down the street, showed them
our gas cans, showed them my military (retired) ID, and they eventually let me through after checking the name
and address I had given them. There were MANY MANY body bags lined up on both sides of the road, far more
than we could count as I drove slowly through that one block. There were search dogs and many teams going
through the rubble not far from the main road. They hadn't even passed through 50 feet of rubble yet. But even
worse was what I was unable to see on Friday night... body PARTS that were being collected. Our estimate is
that there were at least 20-30 body bags already on BOTH sides, waiting to be put into trucks.

wonders what son died for in Iraq
Lance Cpl. Jonathan Collins should not be dead. he was 19.
"There are people at the door," Lauren told her mother. "Two Marines."
Jack and Angel knew what that meant.
But as much as Jack and Angel stood by their
son and every other American
soldier in Iraq, they have never believed in this war.
"We believe we can separate the politics from
what's going on there, from what our
soldiers are being asked to do," Jack said. "I agreed with why we went to Afghanistan.
I think we needed to. But we misread what was going to happen in Iraq.".

Are you privvy to something no one else knows? I know you are trying to defend the
Constitution, but this is not the issue to do it with. Your continued defense of Scott is
puzzling to me, and makes me uneasy. I respect your opinion and would have no
objection to you just saying that a man is innocent until proven guilty, but your continued
championing of him and your devoting so much space to this troubles me.

Rumsfeld and Bush Failed Us on Sept. 11
"Two planes hitting the twin towers did not rise to the level of Rumsfeld's leaving his office
and going to the War Room? How can that be?" asked Mindy Kleinberg, one of the widows
known as the Jersey Girls, whose efforts helped create and guide the 9/11 commission.
The fact that the final report failed to offer an explanation is one of the infuriating holes
in an otherwise praiseworthy accounting.
Rumsfeld was missing in action that morning,
"out of the loop" by his own admission. The lead
military officer that day, Brig. Gen. Montague Winfield, told the commission that the Pentagon's
command center had been essentially leaderless: "For 30 minutes we couldn't find" Rumsfeld.
"Rumsfeld is in charge of NORAD, which has the
specific mission of protecting the United States
and Canada by responding to any form of air attack. The official chain of command in the event of
a hijacking calls for the president to empower the secretary of Defense to send up a military escort
and, if necessary, give shoot-down orders."
It seems like they were all asleep that day.
Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, the interceptor jets.
We couldn't get one of them to come to work?

I dunno if this gives you any more info,
but RZA is a producer for the rap group wu-tang clan.
The fact that the producers were listed as the RZA and the chinganos would mean that the song
in the move was a song produced by RZA using samples of a chinganos song.
In simple english, the song used in the
movie was produced by the RZA, using elements from the
original song by the chingons. RZA used portions (that you recoginized) in his song that was included
in the movie, just like you might use some audio samples of Bush or Rush the pigboy in your radio show.
Hope that makes sense Bartdude.
