Perkel on Mike Malloy on AAR Wednesday
"To make these awards in the face of failure -- the
mounting American death toll, the awful
suffering of the Iraqis, the looming possibility
of civil war, the nose-thumbing of the still-at-large
Osama bin Laden and the madness of making war
for a nonexistent reason -- has the creepy feel
of the old communist states, where incompetents
wore medals and harsh facts were denied."

Since the Democrats and the media tell us Emporer Bush is wearing clothes,
why should he bother to put any on?
contractor withdraws from Iraq
When the first domino falls, the others fall right afterwards
Contrack International Inc. has reportedly become
the first major US contractor to pull out
of Iraq, adding that high security costs were to
"We reached a point where our costs were getting to
be prohibitive," company president
Karim Camel-Toueg told the Los Angeles Times.
Contrack, the leader of a partnership that won
one of 12 major contracts awarded in 2004,
was the largest company to pull out of Iraq to
date, the officials told the Times.
Translation: "We're not getting paid." Bush
is charging taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars
then asking contractors to work on the extra cheap - just so they can pocket
the balance of the cash.
If you could award hundreds of secret, no-bid contracts to the biggest
US companies and keep half the cash,
would you milk this mother to death the way the BFEE has done for years? It's
a never-ending gravy train.
The BFEE will continue to steal a billion dollars a day until there's
peace in the f-ing Middle East!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And it's a good thing they don't
have a conscience at the BFEE, because 1300 dead soldiers would deter some from
stealing so much.
War on the
by Bob Herbert
From the earliest planning stages until now,
the war in Iraq has been a tragic exercise in official incompetence.
The original rationale for the war was wrong. The
intelligence was wrong. The estimates of required troop
strength were wrong. The war hawks' guesses about
the response of the Iraqi people were wrong. The cost
estimates were wrong, and on and on. Nevertheless
the troops have fought valiantly, and the price paid by
many has been horrific. They all deserve better
than the bad faith and shoddy treatment they are receiving
from the highest officials of their government."
"Pants this guy,
and bring him to me ...with the Dobermans..."

loving Spc. Thomas Wilson, who asked Rumsfeld the armor question Attribution
Tom, so why love the greedy crooks who gave the
super-rich tax cuts and cheaped you on the armor?
I appreciate loyalty, but you voted to
send more time in Iraqi tours without that armor.
You didn't have the brains to vote to come home to your family.
Subject: I wonder why, too
You wonder why during the debates, Kerry did not
ask about the bulge under Bush's coat.
I am also wondering why did Kerry ended the election
campaign with 15 million dollars unspent from the Campaign moneys.
Was he trying to lose the election? I am afraid

"As for Bush, 49 percent of respondents said they
approved of the job the president is doing.
That number is down from his November approval
rating of 55 percent. Bush is the first incumbent
president to have an approval rating below
50 percent one month after winning re-election."
--Inside Politics, Attribution
Odds are Bush's approval rating we're in the mid-forties
on election day.
But since the Democrats don't mind Diebold helping
Bush, he won, anyway.
Remember when the president of Diebold guaranteed
to "deliver" Ohio for Bush?
Bush likes an employee who can deliver the goods.
If only there was an opposition party to the fascist BFEE.
Subject: Tarla from NZ
I agree with almost everything Tarla wrote except
the part about those of us who stay and don't (or can't) fight.
Tarla, babe, some of us are having trouble convincing
our spouses just how bad things have gotten.
I'd love to chuck it all and break for Canada right
now, but my Miami-born wife hates the cold.
Hmmm....any good ski areas in NZ?
I love to snowboard, but you know, Canada may
just be a little too close to the fire, especially when
these idiots snap to the fact that water will be
the oil of this new century, and Canada has some
extraordinary percentage of the world's fresh water
Do I still love this country? Like you said,
I love certain places within it.
I love the ideals it used to stand for, and wish
I could live in a country that still strives towards those ideals.
But about half of the people here have become intolerable
to live with.
Oh, Bart, just a random comment: you twice
referred to Chuch Hagel as (R-Diebold).
But wasn't he on the board of ES&S when that
firm counted the votes in his first Senate race
in Nebraska that produced the "stunning upset" that
put him in office?
Just asking. Thanks for all you do.

Rich, you are correct!

"Is This Heaven?"
... the view from Iowa
by Molly Ivins
So far, we have not brought democracy to Iraq.
We have brought blood, killing and death.
Our so-called liberal media do a pathetically inadequate
job of telling us about the war because,
first, it is too dangerous to cover most of the
country, and second, reporters who are critical of
the endeavor are blacklisted by our military."
You can't trust the networks.
You can't trust the newspapers or the weekly
You can't trust talk radio or the
The internet and foreign news sources are your only chance
at the truth.
8-vote Win in Wash. Gov's Race
Is it true? Did we actually win one? Did the Diebold
Democrats have claimed victory in the race for
Washington governor by a razor-thin
margin of eight votes, citing preliminary results
of a hand recount they say puts Christine
Gregoire in front for the first time. Republicans
maintained the race was still too close to call.

Judas Maximus: How
can you say the war has been won? The 'insurgents' seem to be able to attack
Andrew Card: They're
attacking but they're not attacking all of the people all of the time."
--Andrew Card, proving Bush is so into torture,
they torture the truth Attribution
So does that means it's just some of the people
all of the time doing the fighting?
Or is it some of the people some of the time?
Or could it be all of the people some of the time?
I guess it doesn't really matter as long as it's
not all of the people all of the time.
Isn't it sad that not even one Democrat will call them on their
Subject: What is the point?
Bart, this is the backdrop against which the accusations
of horrific war crimes on civilians in Faluja are reported.
These have been universally ignored by our western
media, although they are crimes committed in your name and mine.
Women and children, murdered in your name and in
mine. These crimes have been reported much more fully in the world
outside of this country. We haven't even
contemplated the blowback because we are blissfully unaware of the carnage.
We've got the best books by the best authors.
Why No Recent
Ladies and Gentlemen of America your apple is
rotten at the core.
Your fish is stinking at the head.
Your blundering naivety is breathtaking.
Your lack of outrage speaks volumes.
Consider Key West!
Subject: Dean and the Democrats
Dean is the only one who was trying to say what
is really wrong with this country.
The only reason the media portrays him as a liberal
is because he was opposed to the war
in Iraq from the beginning - as did the American
Conservative and other conservative publications!
I believe there could be big changes in the next
congressional election because Iraq is unfortunately
evolving into another Viet Nam. I am afraid
the attacks yesterday were a good indication of that the
worst is yet to come. But someone has got
to stand up and hold the persons responsible for getting us
into this mess accountable. It will have
to be done from the grassroots level because the major media
and the current leadership of the Democratic party
sta, possible flaw in the theory:
Iraq was a Vietnam-style quagmire for this election,
but voters said,
"We don't care, we love W's values," so
the majority voted for more quagmire.
...at least, that's what Bush, Kerry and the networks
"Boy, it's a big battle this year just saying, 'Merry
Christmas,' celebrating Christmas.
There seems to be an all-out assault by the
secularists out there to deny what is Christmas."

heroin ass off again, Attribution
What do the facist-right bastards have to gain from this clumsy and
Why gets upset when they hear "Merry Christmas?"
I don't - do you?
No, FOX and the vulgar Pigboy got their orders from Karl Rove.
It's not enough that they stole the election - they have to fabricate the

Bush Hides About Scalia and Slappy
SCALIA OPPOSES EFFORTS TO DESEGREGATE SCHOOLS:
In his concurrence on Freeman v. Pitts,
Scalia indicated he would favor stripping the authority
of Federal courts to regulate school desegregation,
"even for those schools that remain significantly
segregated." [Freeman v Pitts 1992]
THOMAS FAVORS STATE-SPONSORED RELIGION: Thomas
has "advanced the position" that
constitutionally mandated church/state separation
applies "to the federal government, but not to individual states
- a position that would allow Virginia, for example,
to declare a state religion." He would allow individual states
to "adopt particular religions and use tax money
to proselytize for them." [Elk Grove v. Newdow, 2004]
"It was reported that while at the White House Christmas
party young Barbara Bush
smashed her head on the dance floor when a
friend she was dancing with dipped her to low.
That friend -- Captain Morgan."
--Amy Poehler, "Weekend
Jack and Jill went up the hill,

Injured in Blast Flown to Germany
A C-141 transport plane carrying some 50 patients
- most of them wounded in
Tuesday's attack in Mosul - touched down at Ramstein
Air Base after a flight
from Baghdad. The first of the injured were taken
off the plane on stretchers.
Tuesday's attack killed 22 and injured 72. Fifty-one
of the injured are U.S. military personnel.
The hospital was expecting at least eight critical
care patients from the group. They were gearing up
to treat the victims, most of whom were suffering
from broken bones and shrapnel wounds.
A year from today - or five years from today -
will we see this same headline?

We spent 58,000 lives and then forgot the fucking
The military families seem content to donate arms,
legs and lives for Bush's oil snatch,
but shouldn't saner heads overrule them and insist
they stay alive, instead?
And why isn't Bush held responsible for this unnecessary
war for oil?
Subject: Star Trek Titles!
I wanted to tell you, I'm loving the Star Trek
show titles on your site of late!
Every time I read a new page, I get to run through
the episode in my head real quick first,
which makes the horror I'm about to read a little
more palatable, I guess...
What worries me is the number of titles that don't
need to be altered to make them relevant...
"Taste of Armageddon", "Balance of Terror", "Spectre
of the Gun"...
It's funny you're doing that, because I used the
Trek universe in a conversation a while ago.
A friend and I were discussing the state of the
world, and our general pessimism about the near future,
but I think that having cut my teeth on Star Trek
gave me a frantic optimism about what we could
become as a race, I mean the human one.
Anyway, love your site, and will be sending you
the pics I took in Egypt w/Bartcop sticker!
Incidentally, as Americans traveling in Egypt,
we were questioned on our opinion of things,
and when my boyfriend and I had the right answer,
you should have seen the faces light up!
Live long and prosper, and all that..
Sue, thanks for that.
My favorite was "Bush's Brain."
Funny, a while back, I did Carole King titles, It's Too late, I
Feel the Earth Move,
and on the third title people wrote and asked, "What's
the deal with the Carole King titles?"
After seventeen Star Trek titles, I saw your e-mail.
Rough deduction says about six times more readers are Carole King fans
than Star Trek fans.

Identities for Jail Break
I hope Matt Drudge doesn't dehydrate
A pair of 18-year-old identical twins swapped
their clothing and traded places so that one
could escape jail. The inmate walked out
undetected on Monday after a visit by his twin brother.
During a visit, the two siblings, neither of whom
were named, managed to switch their outfits without
anyone noticing. After visiting hours ended,
the inmate walked out, pretending to be his brother.
The visiting brother was questioned and released,
but could face charges of aiding in a prison escape.
His brother? Police said he was still on the run.

One paragraph and I'm already lost.
Anyway, I personally feel there is always a grain
of truth behind any conspriacy theory
regardless of who spouts it.mainly because you
cant have one with out at least 2 people.
So, the rumors of you and the duck are true?
So others looking in can label any groups plan
as a conspiracy because thats what it is....
Since we are the premier example of a capitalist
society, pimples, failures, sucesses, <snip> et al,
the idea of all this shadowy stuff going on regardless
of political affiliation should come as no surprise.
I'm still lost - who is surprised - about what,
and about who?
I voted for Clinton twice. I find the concept
of Monica Lewinsky on her knees a prime example
of how corrupting power is and all this blather
about how Clinton didnt get any of our boys and
girls killed is not quite on the money...

Apparently, my "blather" is "not on the money."

A mistake in judgment, sure, but Clinton was a
great president and his sex life isn't my concern.
Why should it be a concern of yours?
If you want to fault his presidency, then please
attack it with some substance.

to the utmost to give the plebiscite their share
of the bread and circus that was scaled back during
the Reagan era.

A shrinking middle class could mean they got richer or poorer.

History of Consortiumnews.com
We founded the Consortiumnews.com Web site in
1995, back in the "early days" of the modern Internet.
The site was meant to be a home for important,
well-reported stories that weren't welcome in the
O.J. Simpson-obsessed, conventional-wisdom-driven
national news media of that time.
As one of the reporters who helped expose the
Iran-Contra scandal for the Associated Press in the mid-1980s,
I was distressed by the silliness and downright
creepiness that had pervaded American journalism by the mid-1990s.
I feared, too, that the decline of the U.S. press
corps foreshadowed disasters that would come when journalists
failed to alert the public about impending dangers.
with assaulting parents
Bush's legacy begins to unfold
A Marine pleaded not guilty to assault after
prosecutors said he beat his parents over the weekend.
When police arrived, they saw through a window
that Blount was assaulting his bloodied mother,
according to court papers. Police kicked in the
door and subdued Blount after a brief struggle..
The inside of the house was strewn with broken
furniture and blood was spattered on the walls.
Blount's father was found bloodied and nearly unconscious
on a couch.
Blount has been a Marine for 13 years. He had
been stationed at Gitmo.
We have up to 150,000 of these troubled men coming
home from Bush's bloody war.
If only America had a free press or a two-party
systemn that could expose this problem.
