"Christmastime reminds each of us that we have a duty to our fellow citizens, that we are
  called to love our neighbor just as we would like to be loved ourselves. By volunteering
  our time and talents where they are needed most, we help heal the sick, comfort those
  who suffer, and bring hope to those who despair, one heart and one soul at a time."

 Exit poll says Yushchenko wins in Ukraine
   Exit polls are reliable everywhere except Diebold elections

  Click  Here

 Oppositon candidate Viktor Yushchenko led in all three exit polls tracking Sunday's re-run
 of the presidential election in Ukraine.  Exit polls released just after the close of polling indicate
 that current prime minister Viktor Yanukovich has lost to Mr Yushchenko by a margin of approximately 15%.

 Mr Yushchenko confidently predicted his victory shortly after voting this morning, telling reporters,
 "I will win. That's 100%. I'm absolutely certain".    "Today, we will at last have a new president,"
 opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko told reporters. "It will be a beginning of a new era in Ukraine."

 Note: In Russia when the government rigs the voting, people take to the streets and demand justice.
           In America, when the government rigs the voting, the loser tells the people who got screwed
           to get over it and rally around the crooked bastard who stole the election. We allow ourselves
           to be screwed because the pink panty Democrats have given up on doing their damn jobs.

  "Trust Dubya and your government - they'd never lie to us!"


 What's Really Happening in Iraq

  Click  Here

 If you want to know why public opinion in Western Europe has been so overwhelmingly against Bush's war,
 there's one obvious answer: the difference in television news between theirs and ours. You can easily determine
 this for yourself: Spend a week watching the news broadcasts and TV magazines of the BBC, France2 and
 Deutsche Welle, all available on many U.S. cable systems. The footage of dead Iraqi babies and children - victims
 of U.S. attacks on "terrorists" - that you will regularly see on European public television is rarely aired on U.S.
 networks. The regular interviews in Iraqi hospitals with doctors recounting the slaughter of the innocents that show up
 on European news broadcasts aren't often seen on the all-news cable networks here, let alone on the Big Three
 broadcast nets' newscasts. Iraqis, of course, know this daily reality all too well - which explains their
 overwhelming hostility to the U.S. occupation."

 We don't have free and legal elections and the networks have gone from trying to hound a legally elected president
 from office to helping a illegal usurper steal power, and cheering his bloody, illegal invasions and mass murders.

 What happened to the America we all grew up in?

 Why does nobody care that America has turned into a sour bully that steals what it wants
 and kills who it wants - all without sufficient explanation or justification?




"And I think all of us have a sense if we imagine the kind of world we would face if the people
  who bombed the mess hall in Mosul, or the people who did the bombing in Spain, or the people
  who attacked the United States in New York, shot down the plane over Pennsylvania and attacked
  the Pentagon, the people who cut off peoples' heads on television to intimidate, to frighten  -- indeed
  the word "terrorized" is just that. Its purpose is to terrorize, to alter behavior, to make people be
  something other than that which they want to be."
     -- Donald Rumsfeld, premiering his new language where noun and verb are ...just neighbors    Attribution

 ...and Unka Donny, who "shot down" the plane over Pennsylvania?

 Subject: Rummy's Christmas Eve visit to Iraq

 Hey Bart:

 Did you see the clip on CNN about Rummy's surprise visit to Iraq?

 Among other "photo ops", it showed him talking to a wounded soldier, lying in his hospital bed.
 That soldier did not look like a happy camper. He couldn't even look Rummy in the eye and I think
 if he did, he would have jumped out of bed and put his hands around Rummy's fat, lying-sack-of-shit throat.

 I'm surprised the media whores allowed that one to be on public TV!


 Rummy proved he's every bit as brave as David Letterman.



"It's a fine thing to volunteer to help the sick and poor, but I'd rather live in
  a country where everyone has access to health care and the poor can find jobs
  that pay a living wage.  And if Bush's destablizing policies are allowed to go forward,
  the day will come when we'll have more sick and poor than we have volunteers."

"Is This Heaven?"

   A Legacy of Giuliani Years:
  Damage Suits Against New York City

  Click  Here

 Late Tuesday, a federal magistrate released testimony by Bernard B. Kerik and a former girlfriend
 in an employment discrimination case, one of the legal tangles from his years as a senior aide to Giuliani
 that surfaced while his nomination as secretary of homeland security was collapsing.

 For the Bloomberg administration, the case was just one more in an unusual collection of city lawsuits
 that grind along, regardless of national politics: dealing with the civil rights damages people claim to have
 suffered at the hands of Mr. Giuliani or his senior aides.

 In the three years since Michael R. Bloomberg succeeded Mr. Giuliani, the city has spent close to
 $2 million to settle lawsuits brought by residents and city workers who accused the Giuliani administration
 of retaliating against them for exercising free speech or other constitutional rights.

 Among them is a limousine driver, James Schillaci, who had complained in a newspaper article about a
 red-light sting set up by the police in the Bronx. The same day, police came to his home to arrest him for
 a 13-year-old unpaid ticket. The next day, the mayor obtained - illegally, Mr. Schillaci said - the record
 of his arrests from decades earlier and discussed it, inaccurately, at a news conference. The city settled
 with him for $290,000 in 2002.


 Subject: Iraq elections I'd like to see


 I'd like to see Saddam Hussein on the ballot for the Iraqi presidential election.
 If monkey boy wants real democracy there a truly free election is required - open to all comers.

 I bet Saddam would not only get a significant percentage he might even win.
 People would vote for him just to end the fascist occupation!
 Besides it would be so much fun to watch.

 Keep swinging the big hammer, dude!

"We face two gigantic national challenges today: One is the challenge to protect America in the wake
  of the new terrorist threats, which has involved us in three huge military commitments - Afghanistan,
  Iraq and missile defense. And the other is the challenge to strengthen American competitiveness in the
  wake of an expanding global economy, where more and more good jobs require higher levels of
  education, and those good jobs will increasingly migrate to those countries with the brainpower to
  do them. In the face of these two national challenges, we have an administration committed to
  radical tax cuts, which, one can already see, are starting to affect everything from the number of
  troops we can deploy in Iraq to the number of students we can properly educate at our universities.
 And if we stay on this course, the trade-offs are only going to get worse. Something has to give."

 Things certainly will get worse before they get better.
 The biggest problem is Bush, Kerry and the networks keep saying the elections are fair.

 Why do all the exit polls say Kerry won?
 And why was Kerry so eager to give the victory to Bush?


 Subject: BCR Show 62 feedback and "ghost popping"

 I was thinking about the bricks you said were making loud popping noises.
 I live in a 150ish year old house and have heard the same type of popping.

 Normally associate it with temperature changes.  I can hear it in the morning
 when the sun breaks and at night when the sun goes down.

 Tonight, it is very cold, and I noticed the wall behind my stove doing it
 when I started cooking my dinner.

 L, thanks for that.
 Ordinarily, I can either explain some oddity - or - I just don't care.

 But this was 2-3 feet away from my face and there was nothing to explain it.
 I'll go with the temperature theory because the ghost story has no science.

 Social Security outperforms the Dow

  Click  Here

 For 45 years, Stanley Logue paid into the system until his retirement in 1994. But with all the recent
 hoopla over reform, Mr. Logue, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate, decided to go back
 and check his own records. Would he have done better investing his money than the bureaucrats at the
 Social Security Administration?

 He recorded all the payroll taxes he paid into the system (including the matching amount from his employer),
 tracked down the return the Social Security Trust Fund earned for each of the 45 years, and then compared
 the result with what he would have gotten had he been able to invest the same amount of payroll tax money
 over the same period in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (including dividends).

 To his surprise, the Social Security investment won out: $261,372 versus $255,499, a difference of $5,873.

 For sure, Bush wants to monkey with Social Security because someone figured out a way
 for the BFEE to get their hands on everyone's retirement money - that they intend to steal.

 Lokk at everything Bush has ever done - it's always been to enrich his family and contributors.

 Michael Moore on the hunt for Big Pharm?

  Click  Here

 The Los Angeles Times says that at least six drug companies have released
 internal communications telling employees to be wary of Michael Moore.

"We ran a story in our online newspaper saying Moore is embarking on a
 documentary and if you see a scruffy guy in a baseball cap, you'll know who it is,"
 said Stephen Lederer, a spokesman for Pfizer Global Research and Development.

 Hey Steve, there's a tiny cult TV, king-of-rating show called "The Tonight Show,"
 and about a month ago, Jay had the new, clean-shaven, suit-wearing Michael Moore.

"Stop all scruffy dudes in ball caps, give the
  clean-shaven suits whatever they want.

 "Death has a tendency to encourage a depressing view of war." 
     -- Rumsfeld, who must be eating Bush's stupid pills  Attribution

 Subject: you got beat in that debate, Bart

 BBH's point was that the military is now composed of people who no longer value
 our democratic institutions.  They fight from a dedication to America as a tribe, not a way of life.
 As such, they are not trustworthy guardians of freedom because they do not understand (or experience) it.


 A military that contains a higher percentage of conscripts, temporary citizen-soldiers,
 would be more likely to support democratic institutions.


 I think the "soldiers are evil" crowd has decided to see what they want to see.
 And before you throw the military away, could you suggest a replacement?

 Saying "I like the soldiers we had in 1945" isn't a solution to anything.



"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies a theft from
  those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms
  is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists,
  the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war,
  it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron."

 Iraq rejects Bush election plans
  Click  Here

 Iraq's election body has rejected a suggestion in Washington it adjust the results of next month's vote to
 benefit the Sunni minority if low turnout in Sunni areas means Shi'ites win an exaggerated majority in the
 new assembly. Speaking of ''unacceptable'' interference, Electoral Commission spokesman Farid Ayar
 said on Sunday: 'Who wins, wins. That is the way it is. That is the way it will be in the election.'"

 Bush doesn't do "Who wins, wins."
 All Bush knows is what he wants he gets - because nobody dares to stand up to him.
 Where are our modern day Washingtons and Jeffersons?
 Why should we have to settle for losers and whiners like Kerry and Daschle?

"I was obviously concerned that issues like Abu Ghraib could hurt our standing and
  our ability to support our values abroad. But I found that the American experience

 Subject: I subscribed as soon as I could

 Well, Bart -- I could honestly say that your latest edition was so powerful
 that i could no longer resist subscribing -- and it would be true.

 But -- even truer is that the only reason I have not done so up to now is
 because I haven't been able to pay for it, because money is so very tight.

 The minute I had cash that didn't have an immediate purpose, I sent it to you.
 Ka-ching ka-ching -- I am smiling broadly because I know it's gone to a place
 that matters, and that my small contribution is going to yield the most excellent
 dividends possible.  What a small price to pay for truth!....

 Again, dear Bart, from a longtime reader -- I waited ONLY until I had the cash.
 I hope with it I can buy a tiny bit of steel to help build the HAMMER!

 Sorry to go gooey on you, Bart, but, by golly, you're the guy who has always
 given stuff to me STRAIGHT up.  And when we disagree -- you make me THINK!
 I like that.

 Your pal always -- and hoping you will feel free to use my "Bush or Chimps"
 if you enjoy them --


 Chookie, thanks - and you do great work.
 I'm going to be running Bush-chimp pictures for a long time :)

 Bush wants to break promise of Social Security
   by Helen Thomas, the last honest reporter in Washington DC

  Click  Here

 Bush has been fixated on Social Security since he first took office and has been determined to chip away
 at the government role. His re-election and the Republican majority in Congress have galvanized him into action.
 Republicans have tried to scare young people by telling them that their Social Security checks won't be there
 when they become eligible to collect benefits. Now Bush is falsely proclaiming that there is a financial "crisis"
 in Social Security. If he repeats that often enough, he may convince people that the program is on the rocks
 -- just as he successfully led the nation into war under the fallacy that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction
 and ties to the al-Qaida terrorist network."



"God or Darwin? I definitely would prefer to believe that God created me than
  that I'm 50th cousin to a silverback ape. What's wrong with wanting our children

 Hundreds of children were buried in mass graves in India, and morgues and hospitals struggled

 the earthquake that sent tsunamis raging across the Indian Ocean.

 The International Red Cross reported 23,700 deaths and expressed concern about waterborne
 diseases like malaria and cholera. Jan Egeland, the U.N. Emergency Relief Coordinator, said millions
 of people were effected - by lost homes, polluted drinking water, destroyed sanitation - and that
 the cost of the damage would "probably be many billions of dollars."

"We cannot fathom the cost of these poor societies and the nameless fishermen and fishing villages
 and so on that have just been wiped out. Hundreds of thousands of livelihoods have gone," he told reporters.

 ...and we can't help much because Bush has bankrupted America by giving everything to the super-rich.

 Subject: Further proof the US cares squat about the Darkies (WaHoPo)

 Dear Bart,
 Could this story be any more disgusting?  My fave lines: "U.S. officials said that they wanted to warn
 the countries but that there was no mechanism to do so." "If authorities had had the opportunity to move
 people even a few hundred yards inland, many people would have been saved, Bernard said."
S o, at 8 PM Saturday night, the US knew that moving people a couple hundred yards inland would have
 saved many lives, but had no way to tell anyone. Sri Lanka, Indonesia, India, etc. all have ambassadors
 in the US. What, they couldn't find the phone number? Was Google broken? *sigh* I hate this place.
 Please keep swinging the hammer, Bart.

 Dean Everman

 Christmas Eve, I made a list of 25-30 friends and pillars to call and wish a Merry Christmas.
 I only made it 1/3 way thru, because sometimes conversations can go on...

 I talked to Cathy in Ely, MN.  I asked about the weather - she said it was 35 below zero the night before.
 We talked for a bit, then I called Dean in West Palm Beach. He seemed really glad to hear from me.
 I asked him about the weather and he said it was a cool 70 degrees and raining. I told him I just talked
 to a lady where it was 105 degrees colder, so he shouldn't complain :)

 We talked about meeting last April when we did BartCop Pokerfest Palm Beach.
 Dean offered to be our guide to the mansions on Palm Beach, which included Rush's home,
 and I was looking forward to that, but by the time I figured out the West Palm Beach map
 while they were under highway construction in the rain, it was too late for the tour, so Dean
 met me at the motel pool where we had a Pepsi and a Dr. Pepper and talked politics.

 Dean knew the history of West Palm Beach and it was fascinating to hear his stories.
 Then, the clouds thickened and it began to rain.
 I said goodbye to Dean and it was off to the Pokerfest on the Palm Beach Princess.

 We talked a time or two since, and then I called him Christmas Eve,
 We talked for 20 minutes about Randi Rhodes and Kerry and a dozen other topics.

 He said he couldn't talk longer, because he was getting dressed for an evening event at his church.
 I wished him a Merry Christmas and continued with my calls

 Well, Dean never made it to church, and his friends and family became concerned and
 they went to his place and found him. The doctors guessed he died between 6 and 9 PM.
 It's possible that ours was the last conversation he had.

 His family sent me an e-mail, and my heart just sank.
 The first thing I wanted to do was get on a plane and fly to Las Vegas and have a good time,
 because none of us knows when our last day will arrive.  I fought off that temptation.
 And while we're on this subject, have you told anyone in your family to contact others if
 something were to happen to you?  Most of us only know each other thru e-mails or the chat room.
 You wouldn't want to just disappear one day and leave us all wondering, would you?
 I'm very grateful to Dean's family contacting me with the sad news.
 From his family:
 Dean's service will be on Saturday, we think at about 1:00pm.
 The funeral home is Quattlebaum in West Palm Beach and there will be a wake for him on Friday.

 Dean was not married, and never had been.  He is survived by his father, mother, his younger sister Amy
 and her new fiance Erik.  Amy got engaged on December 18 and Dean helped throw a big Christmas party
 so that her fiance could propose in front of all their family and friends.  Dean was SO HAPPY that night.
 He was planning on giving her away.

 He was 36 years old. He suffered from gout, severe back problems, and he had a heart condition.
 In his early 20's he had countless seizures with no etiology, and then they just stopped.
 Amy, his sister, believes his health troubles were because he was conceived during a short leave his father had
 during the Vietnam war and his father was heavily exposed to agent orange, and suffers from it to this day.

 So remember, it's important to have a good time every day, and if there's something important that you
 need to do, or something important that you need to say to somebody, do it right now - while you have the chance.
 Dean, here's a shot of Chinaco to you, Dude.
