 Download Fahrenheit 9/11 Here

 Marc Perkel is making F911 available for downloading at this link.

 I'll see how my bandwidth holds up. Here is the initial release of my posting of Fahrenheit 9/11.
 It's big. Its 650 megs. So - if you are on a slow connection - don't even bother. Go rent the DVD.
 But if you have DSL or better - here it is.

 Its in AVI format. Pass it around.
 Please find others to host this as my server isn't big enough for the whole planet.

 Michael moore has made several public statements that web sites should pirate his movie.
 He cares more about getting rid of Bush than making money. He says he has already made plenty of money on it
 and he wants people like me to spread it around. So I'm relying on his statements as a grant to spread it around.

 NEW! Download the audio of Fahrenheit 9-11. Its only 14 megs and you can follow the story very well
 just from the audio track. Download it and pass it around.

 Iran Endorses Bush
  They've done business before - remember Iran-Contra?

  Click  Here

 The head of Iran's security council said Tuesday that the re-election of Bush
  was in Tehran's best interests, despite the administration's axis of evil label,

 You bet it is - they can get weapons from the BFEE, just like before.
 Iran has oil, so Bush will give them a carpet of gold or a carpet of bombs.

 "It's not an endorsement we'll be accepting anytime soon," Bush Liar Scott Stanzel said.

 Bullshit - look at their record!
 The BFEE has done business with Hitler, Osama, Saddam, Noriega, Islamic Jihad, etc.
 Of course they'll do business with any murdering despot in the world - if it'll make them a dollar.



"Surely there are officials in the present administration who recognize that we have

  Producer Files New Lawsuit Against O'Reilly, Fox

 "I have a vibrator in my butt..."

 The amended lawsuit says Fox's "removal" of Mackris from her job "is in direct retaliation
 for her complaints of sexual harassment and a sexually hostile work environment at Fox."
 It is a violation of state law to fire an employee who complains of sexual harassment.

 Mackris says O'Reilly, 55, and married with two children, subjected her repeatedly
 to off-color sex remarks and telephone sex talk.



"We have the president's brother deciding whether people

 Subject: Which path?

 America has a choice the election to decided it's future.

 Four years ago America had a surplus. Now we have deficits.
 When Clinton was president he created 23 million new jobs. Now we are losing millions of jobs.
 When  Clinton was president America stood talk in the world. Now America stands small.
 We used to be a nation of peace and prosperity. Now we are a nation of war and poverty.

 The way I see it - we have a choice. Do we stay the course to failure?
 Or - do we go back to success? I'm voting to bring back success.
 I'm voting for the Democrats.

 Kerry Attacker Protected Rev. Moon
   by Robert Parry  at

  Click  Here

 Carlton Sherwood, who has produced an anti-John Kerry "Sinclair" video that will be aired
 before the elections, wrote a book in the 1980s denouncing federal investigators who tried to
 crack down on Rev. Sun Myung Moons illicit financial operations.

 In retrospect, Sherwoods book, Inquisition: The Prosecution and Persecution of the Reverend
 Sun Myung Moon, appears to have been part of a right-wing counter-offensive aimed at discouraging
 scrutiny of Moon and his mysterious money flows. The strategy largely succeeded, enabling Moon to
 continue funneling hundreds of millions of dollars into the U.S. political process, most notably to publish
 the ultra-conservative Washington Times but also to make payments to prominent politicians, including
 former President George H.W. Bush.

 New evidence also makes clear that Moon resumed his practice of laundering money into the United States
 after serving a 13-month prison sentence for a 1982 conviction for tax law violations. Former Moon associates,
 including his ex-daughter-in-law, have disclosed that Moons organization smuggled cash across U.S. borders,
 but those admissions have not led to renewed federal investigations.

 Subject: tricky bastards

 This morning I went to the post office here in Sacramento, CA to mail my absentee ballot.

 I was informed that the 37 cent stamp I had placed on the envelope was not enough postage
 to mail my vote, another 23 cents was needed. Nowhere on the ballot envelope or in the instructions
 was it indicated that extra postage was required. I've spoken to many people who already have sent
 their ballots off with only 37 cents postage who are now worried that their vote may not be counted .

 Since I was starting work, I called the one person who I knew would check into this problem, my Mom.
 She called to the Sacramento County Registrar's office and was told "the Post Office will deliver the ballots
 with the lower postage." However, when she called to the Post Office, she was told that full postage ($.60)
 was required to deliver our votes to be tabulated.

 We don't want another Florida election. Please let all of your friends and family know that 60 cent postage
 is required to mail their absentee ballots, so there will be no vote left behind.

 Edwards: Iraq War Created Terror Haven
  Terror needed a home office and Bush provided one for them

  Click  Here

 John Edwards accused Bush of failing the United States and the world,
 citing unsecured nuclear weapons abroad and unprotected ports at home
 as further evidence of the president's "incompetence."

"He's created something that didn't exist before the war in Iraq he's created a haven for terrorists,"
 Edwards said. "This is not leadership this is incompetence," Edwards said.
 Bush is scaring people about terrorism to get people to vote against Kerry, Edwards said.

"While they campaign on fear, we're going to talk about the facts," Edwards told supporters.
"John Kerry and I are going to unite this country so we can win the war against terrorism."


 Subject:  I couldn't let this moment pass

 Dear Bart,

 Make a donation today to our Countdown to Victory Matching Fund.

 With some people already casting their ballots, the election of 2004 is now underway,
 and nothing less than the future of our country is at stake. This is the moment for every
 Democrat to look in the mirror and ask: "What more can I do to help?"

 Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of a special group of Democratic donors,
 every dollar you donate today, in the kickoff of our Countdown to Victory Matching Fund,
 will be matched, doubling the impact of your Countdown to Victory donation.

 Let's go for it. America's future is on the ballot this year.
 Let's use these final days of the campaign to win the victory that is within our grasp,
 and secure the kind of future we want for our children. I'm counting on you.

 Losing America's Birthright
  Sucking Democracy Dry, the George Bush way

  Click  Here

 Thomas Mann says, "I see the damage to our system and our sense of ourselves as a democratic people
 as really quite substantial. . . . The consequences of both the policies and the processes have been more
 destructive of our national interest and our democratic institutions than any president I know."
 Spend three days talking to movers and shakers around this town and you're hard-pressed to find
 anyone who agrees. Even those who think the president is stealing our democratic birthright are
 eloquent in their excuses for why we shouldn't do anything much about it at all.

 Democratic insiders use politics to explain their inaction away. They've seen the focus groups:
 Accusations of a president draining the lifeblood from democracy just won't play in Peoria.
"It's what the folks in this business, we call an 'elite argument,' " says Jeff Shesol, who was a
 speechwriter for President Clinton and whose firm, West Wing Writers, develops messages
 for some of the most prominent Democratic campaigns. "It pitches too high to reach the mass electorate."

 Julian Epstein, another Democratic consultant and frequent talking head, puts it more simply.
 "People will think you're whining," he says.

 ...but if we're going to lose anyway, and that's what they're telling us,
 wouldn't you rather go down fighting than giving in to the never-elected Emporer?


 Bono One of Three TED Prize Recipients

  Click  Here

 U2 frontman and global activist Bono is one of three recipients of the inaugural
 TED Prize from the Technology, Entertainment, Design conference.

 The other recipients are Canadian photo-artist Edward Burtynsky and medical technologies
 pioneer Robert Fischell. Each will receive $100,000 and the chance to have three wishes
 fulfilled by a group of world-class companies and many members of the TED Community.

 The three wishes of each honoree will be revealed at the next TED conference, to be held
 Feb. 23-26 in Monterey, Calif.

 Earlier this week, Bono, a native of Ireland, was honored with the international Freedom Award
 from the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tenn., for promoting greater Western
 involvement in improving medical care and reducing poverty in Africa.

 Some people with $300M use their time to attack little girls and hook themselves on heroin.
 Others with $300M use their time and influence to help others.
 It's one of the differences between us and them.

"Imagine if they delay the election. This could mean that Bush
  would be the longest serving president never to get elected."

 Did you know you can vote early in 30 states?

 Randi Rhodes says Florida started voting Monday and Jeb's up to his same old tricks.
 People are being turned away - "You're not on the list," so if you attempt to vote early,
 you might discover you have some leg work to do before Election Day.

 Randi also said she's gotten calls from early voters who report that John Kerry's name
 was not listed on the ballot - and that the GOP thought that was kinda funny.

 So if you can, vote early to be sure your vote gets counted.
 Let's not let the bastards steal another one.

 The right finds a lesbian
 After decades of opposing gays, GOP feigns shock for Mary Cheney

  Click  Here

 The Republicans are now accusing the Democrats of being insensitive to gay Americans?
 Or to one gay American at least?

 After John Kerry mentioned Mary Cheney in the third debate, talk radio hosts finally found
 a lesbian they wanted to protect. Even the homophobic wing of cable TV rallied to the
 support of a family with a gay offspring.

 Meanwhile Dick Cheney described himself as "a pretty angry father."
 And Lynne Cheney said of the senator: "This is not a good man."

 What's wrong with this picture?

 Bush must be tried as a war criminal
  Thousands killed, billions stolen - all for the sake of pure greed

  Click  Here

 To commit a crime against peace, one must engage in planning, preparation, initiation or waging of war
 of aggression, or a war in violation of international treaties . . . or participation in a common plan or conspiracy
 . . . to wage an aggressive war. Bush is guilty on all these counts. The most damning evidence coming not from
 the liberal left, but in a series of well-documented books providing revelations by people in his own administration
 or party. Now, with Woodwards work, the President is condemned with his own words.

 Author Ron Susskinds book about former Bush Treasury Secretary Paul ONeill, The Price of Loyalty, reveals
 that from the very beginning of the Bush administration, the President was plotting and conspiring to wage aggressive
 war against Iraq. In Against All Enemies, Bushs counter-terrorism expert, Richard Clarke, not only confirmed
 ONeills account of the Bush administrations obsession with attacking Iraq, yet also shows us an insiders view
 on the illegal planning, preparation and initiation of the war through the deliberate manipulation of intelligence.
 President Nixons strategist, Kevin Phillips, documents four generations of war profiteering and deception by
 the Bush/Walker clan in American Dynasty.

 After the election I see Malloy moving to a early time either around Randi Rhodes.

 Malloy is really the true superstar on Air America Radio (Rhodes is definably in the same ballpark)
 but NO ONE can hold an audience like Malloy, not even Limbaugh  at his best (or worst, I hate the Pigman).
 And Malloy offers great quotes nightly, on every show, without even trying. He's that good.

 I love when Malloy uses terms like "knuckle-DRAGGERS" referring to the brain dead republican zombies,
 and "I'd rather open a vein than...", etc. etc.

 Trip Report West

 We landed at 8 AM, it was 65 and raining (what?) and the room wouldn't be ready until 1 PM.
 Mrs. Bart said, "I want to see sharks."
 Last time we were here, the line to see the sharks was, literally, a mile long.
 They claim they have the only hammerhead shark on display in America.
 True or not, we saw a hammerhead shark yesterday.

 Coming out of The Shark Reef, we met up with our host and he said "Today is fun day."
 That meant shots of tequilas at 11:30 AM
 That led to some poker where I broke even but Scary won $500 with his wild and wreckless style of play.

 After poker, Morton's Steakhouse was suggested.

 Our waiter "showed us the meat" - plastic wrapped double cut filet mignon, porterhouse,
 lamb chops, KC strip, lobster ( not plastic wrapped, but rubberbanded)

 Our salad was Maytag bleu cheese dressing on lettuce with eggs & anchovies.
 Mrs. Bart and I said, "Hold the anchovies," so Scary said, "Put their anchovies on my salad."
 All three of us had the double cut filet mignon with bernaise sauce - she and I "medium", he was "medium rare."

 Then he ordered a 2001 Robert Sinsky Pinot Noir Carneros red wine.
 The bread was onion bread shepherd's loaf with very good butter.
 We had Lyonaise potatos* - sauteed / pan fried cubed potatos* with red onions and bacon
 and hash brown potatoes. The mushrooms were garlic marinated and very wild

 I was full, but Scary insisted on dessert in the desert, so that meant cheescake - w/strawberry on top, the most
 fabulous key lime pie you ever tasted and chocolate mousse - w/cherry cordial & brandy that melts in your mouth
 Even the water was fancy - Italian Pelligrino - bottled water - 1 flat and 1 sparkling

 I don't think I've ever had a $300 meal before.
 Our host is very generous.

 Today's forecast calls for more rain, more tequila and more poker.

 Subject: retaliation

 Bart, I practice federal employment discrimination law.
 My first reaction  to hearing that Fox News fired Bill O'Reilly's accuser was:
 WOW! What a an absolutely huge retaliation case she has against Fox!

 Even if we were to view Fox only as a third party, the laws prohibiting retaliation
 in a sexual harassment case still preclude acts of retaliation taken by a third party to
 protect a harasser. Granted, these laws are not being enforced very vigorously  any
 longer by Bush's reactionary federal judges, but they are still on the  books.

 I sincerely hope this young woman and her lawyer avail themselves of  these laws.

 Fear and Loathing, Campaign 2004
   by Hunter S. Thompson

  Click  Here

 Armageddon came early for George Bush this year, and he was not ready for it. His long-awaited showdowns
 with my man John Kerry turned into a series of horrible embarrassments that cracked his nerve and demoralized
 his closest campaign advisers. They knew he would never recover, no matter how many votes they could steal
 for him in Florida, where the presidential debates were closely watched and widely celebrated by millions of
 Kerry supporters who suddenly had reason to feel like winners.

 Kerry came into October as a five-point underdog with almost no chance of winning three out of three rigged
 confrontations with a treacherous little freak like George Bush. But the debates are over now, and the victor
 was clearly John Kerry every time. He steamrollered Bush and left him for roadkill.

 Did you see Bush on TV, trying to debate? Jesus, he talked like a donkey with no brains at all. The tide turned early,
 in Coral Gables, when Bush went belly up less than halfway through his first bout with Kerry, who hammered poor
 George into jelly. It was pitiful. . . . I almost felt sorry for him, until I heard someone call him "Mister President,"
 and then I felt ashamed.

 Bush relatives's website show support for Kerry

  Click  Here

"Six blood relatives of President Bush who support John F. Kerry's bid for the presidency
 have launched a website to publicize their sharp disagreements with Bush's policies. The site,, consists of personal statements from a group of decidedly
 liberal second cousins of the president, none of whom knows him personally.

 All are grandchildren of Mary Bush House, the sister of Prescott Bush, a former US senator
 from Connecticut (and partner with Hitler) and the father and grandfather of the two Bush presidents.
 The introduction to the site opens with the slogan, ''Because blood is thicker than oil!" and states:
'As the election approaches, we feel it is our responsibility to speak out about why we are voting
 for Kerry, and to do our small part to help America heal from the sickness it has suffered since
 Bush was appointed. We invite you to read our stories, and please, don't vote for our cousin!'"


 Subject: Believers are incapable of reason

 That is what belief is: the rejection of rational thought.

 People who believe in gods should not be allowed to vote or hold public office or other
 positions of public responsibility such as running polls or reporting the news or serving in government.

 That is the only way the people of this nation can be protected from the bloody consequences of their willful irrationality.
