"No American citizen should wake up the morning after the election and worry their vote wasn't counted.
  No citizen should be denied at the polls if they are eligible to vote. ...our citizens should never be forced
  to vote on old, unaccountable and non transparent voting machines from companies controlled by partisan activists.

  Tomorrow, members of Congress will meet to certify the results of the 2004 presidential election.
  I will not be taking part in a formal protest of the Ohio Electors."

    -- John Kerry, breaking his promise to fight, breaking his word that he'd "leave no stone unturned"
    -- John Kerry, giving Karl Rove his best hardon in years
    -- John Kerry fooled us twice, shame on us

 When I got this e-mail from Kerry, he asked us to call the Republicans and beg them to play nice.
 Kerry asked us to notify him if we did that.

 Well, I'm not begging for a goddamn thing, so in Kerry's feedback form, I wrote:

 It's the Media, Stupid!
     by Robert Parry of

  Click  Here

 The reason that negative attacks could work so well for the Bush campaign was the preexistence of
 a vast conservative media infrastructure that serves as both an echo chamber for Republican messages
 and a way to protect George W. Bush and other Republicans from attack.

 Indeed, the conservative investment of tens of billions of dollars in media over the past quarter century
 may be the biggest - and least reported - money-in-politics story of modern American history.
 The conservatives' ability to saturate the airwaves with their version of reality has changed how
 millions of Americans understand the world.

 So, even when the Democrats can roughly match the Republicans in election fundraising - as occurred
 in 2004 with each side spending about $1 billion - the Republicans have a huge, built-in advantage
 because the conservative media reinforces their messages. This infrastructure also works between elections
 - day-in-day-out, year-in-year-out - to keep the Republican base engaged and the Democrats on the defensive.

 Note: is the most important site on the Internet.



 DeLay's Tactics Work On House Republicans
   by Joe Conason

  Click  Here

 What the latest rules reversal proves is that while Mr. DeLay may be crude, he certainly isn't stupid.
 Blistered by criticism from editorial boards and nonpartisan groups, the Republican boss realized that
 he and his members are now vulnerable to the same moral arguments they once used to oust the
 Democrats from power. That danger was emphasized by a coalition of eight citizen organizations,
 ranging from Judicial Watch on the right to Public Campaign on the left, which gave voice to public outrage.
 Suddenly, as angry e-mails poured into their offices, the people's elected representatives understood
 that voting to weaken ethics rules on the first day of the 109th Congress wouldn't look so good.



 Subject: Dear John letter

 Dear John,

 I and many people poured our hearts (and pocketbooks) out for you
 in the campaign and now you say you won't protest the Ohio electors?!?!
 This is why the Republicans prevail.

 You don't have the balls to confront them and shout "ENOUGH!" or "STOP!"
 to everything they represent from policy to stealing elections.

 I now feel foolish for supporting your campaign.
 You need not bother asking me again for support.
 If you won't help yourself why ask me?

 Media Contact: Kevin Spidel 602-373-6990 / Tim Carpenter 413-320-2015  Janurary, 5th 2005 -

 Rally Begins: 10:00 a.m. January 6th, 2005 Lafayette Park, across from the White House (16th & H St., NW)

 Washington D.C. - Congress meets in joint session on January 6th to certify the 2004 Presidential election.
 Grassroots activists and nationally recognized figures will join voices to inspire members of the House and
 Senate to object to the certification of the November 2nd 2004 vote, forcing Congress to address the
 problems in our current election system.

 The problem?
 The candidate who was victimized can't be bothered with this.


 Subject: Ramsey Clark and Saddam

 I think that I get where you're coming from on this "piss Christ" thing, but
 what's with dissing Ramsey Clark because he volunteered to defend Saddam?

 You seem to have swallowed all that Republican bullshit about Saddam lock, stock and barrel.
 Was Saddam a tyrannical bastard??
 .... of course, but no more so than a dozen others that we have been in bed with.


 Lou, I could be wrong about Clark, but that would be because I've never heard/read anything good about him
 I don't mind Saddam getting legal help, but why does it have to be a liberal Democrat from America?

 Somebody educate me - what's the good news about Ramsey Clark?

 CNN Fires Bow-Tie "dick"
  Boss: "I come down more firmly in the Jon Stewart camp,"

  Click  Here

 CNN said goodbye to Tucker Carlson (R-dick) and with him likely "Crossfire."
 CNN will probably fold "Crossfire" into its other programming, perhaps as an occasional
 segment on "Inside Politics," said Jonathan Klein, chief executive of CNN's U.S. network.

 The bow-tie bastard got into a public tussle last fall with Jon Stewart, who has been critical
 of cable political programs that devolve into shoutfests. Syewart told Crlson, "You're a dick."

"I guess I come down more firmly in the Jon Stewart camp," Klein told The Associated Press.

 I think they're killing Crossfire because they didn't want Carville and Begalla to win every debate.




"Dear Senator Kerry,  Screw you, you coward. You're such a putz it's beyond belief.
  I can't stand you. You concede before the votes were counted and now you want the
  citizenry of America to support you? You're a pink tutu wearing Democrat who brings
  nothing but shame to the party. You're dispicable."
    -- Victoria M, replying to Kerry's "Cave in" letter where he begged the GOP to play fair


 Subject: betting on the DOW


 The reason behind all of this wonderful talk about the Stock Market is Social Security.
 How could Bush sell his Social Security as private investment fiasco if the stock market were tanking?

These people stand to make BILLIONS from Bush's ridiculous scheme.
 Would people who stand to make BILLIONS lie?

 Suicide bombers killed 21 people in attacks on an Iraqi police academy and a checkpoint on Wednesday,
 part of a campaign to derail Jan. 30 elections which Bush's puppet vowed will go ahead.

 The first bomber rammed an explosives-packed car into the police academy south of Baghdad.
 Hours later, a suicide car bomber killed six people at a checkpoint in the northern city of Baquba.

"I voted for Bush because of the great way he's handling the war on terrorism."


 Subject: evolution

 Whenever some religious person says that they do not believe in evolution...
 I always point to Noah's Arc.

 Religious folks believe that all the animals on earth, all the humans, all races, all species...
 all of it evolved from one boat load of critters and 6 people.  Which by the way, only happened
 because their oh so loving and kind god murdered every other living thing on the planet with a giant flood.

 And before that... they believed that all animals and humans on earth evolved from one couple,
 Adam and Eve and the critters in the garden.

 So yeah, all religious folks believe in evolution... not only that, they worship it.


 Subject: marijuana and god

 The continued prohibition of Cannabis has nothing to do with the 'invisible cloud being'; 'God' is obviously pro-pot:

 Genesis 1:29   And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face
    of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
 Genesis 1:30   I have given every green herb
 Genesis 9:3     Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
 Psalms104:14 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man:

 It all comes down to the republicrats real god - money. The prison industry is one of the fastest growing sectors
 of our economy, and a significant portion of the prison population is in for botanical crimes. Decriminalization would
 mean that all those DEA agents and narcotics cops would have to get real jobs. And pharmaceutical companies
 would have competition from a superior drug that they can't charge a fortune for; tobacco and alcohol industries
 would have a competing product that's superior to theirs in every way - all of which result in less filthy lucre for
 congress-critters in the form of bribes - er, "campaign contributions". Even medical marijuana is a financial threat,
 and the BFEE would rather see any number of people suffer and die rather than have their shares of Eli-Lilly stock lose value.

 Even when cannabis was first outlawed, it had nothing to do with religion or vice, and everything to do with money.
 Jack Herer, probably the worlds foremost authority on cannabis, presents a well-researched account of the origins
 of marijuana prohibition in his book 'The Emperor Wears No Clothes". You can read that portion of his book at
 his website here -

 The majority of the country, even those with devout religious beliefs, favors medical marijuana. The problem isn't
 with those who worship an invisible despot in the sky, its those who worship power and money. And unfortunately,
 that includes democrats as well as republicans. Even our last elected President, Bill Clinton, supported the war on
 some drugs. Only after leaving office did he even hint at the idea that maybe marijuana laws are unjust. While in office
 he appointed a war criminal as Drug Fuhrer - er, "czar", a man who lied about medical marijuana and essentially
 bribed tv networks with our money to include anti-marijuana messages in tv shows. (for info on Gen. Mcaffreys
 war crimes, please refer to Seymour Hersch's excellent article on the subject, available online).

 Warning! Some images deeply disturbing
   Powell is deeply shocked at the tsunami devastation

  Click  Here

 It hasn't leaked out yet (don't worry it will) but somewhere deep inside the bowels of the neo-conservative wing
 among the radical born-again Christian faction of the Bush administration there's much mounting and strong belief
 that last week's devastating South Asia earthquake and tsunami is God's way of allowing CNN, FOX News and
 MSNBC to show hours and hours of uncut and uncensored footage of benevolent uniformed U.S. personnel
 providing aid and succour to masses of non-white peoples searching for lost loved ones and grovelling for meagre
 scraps of food among scenes of indescribable death, mutilation, torment, anguish and suffering.

 Not caused by uniformed U.S. personnel.


 Subject: the stock market

 Hi Bart,
 You've got the right idea.

 I hate to admit it, but I'm a working economist and financial analyst nearing retirement.
 Never made much and never had much, but the best investment I made in 2004 was investing
 in Eastern European stocks, and selling off all the rest of my US stock on November 4th.

 I'm getting ready to buy some oil and energy stock, counting on Bush to continue to fuck up
 the entire world, our country's economy, and our security.

 That's my liberal-ass prediction and I'm putting my money where my mouth is.  No shit.
 It's going to be a good year financially, which is my consolation for that nitwit going back in the White House.

"Believe it or not, the new William Shatner record
  is supposed to be really good, in a goofy way..."
   -- former professional music critic ThaneOfFascistan in the bartcop chat room


 Subject: marijuana

 Hey Bart
 DKS's comments about Marijuana being a gateway drug isn't too far off base and let me explain why.

 As a teen in the 70s I was bombarded with information telling me of the horrors that would befall me if I smoked pot.
 I smoked it anyway and found out that it didn't do any of the horrible things we were told and because of the lie that
 was pushed on us I just assumed that the propaganda about Cocaine, Heroin and any other number of drugs was false also.

 Once kids find out that all the hype about Pot is wrong it opens up the gateway to finding out if everything told to us about drugs is a lie.

 Maria, great point.
 Lying to your kids tells them you're either a liar or an idiot.

 Pau Gasol, and Mike Miller - $1,000 US for every point they score in a game later this week

 The bastard who lied us into war, killing 1340 soldiers and 100,000 civilians,
 who has been stealing $100 million a day for 544 days?

 He gave a whopping $10,000 and the networks ate it with a fucking spoon..

 Truth and justice had been the America way, although I can tell you that for HALF of us,
 our faith in that way is greatly weakened.  We see that reasonable mechanisms for inquiry
 and validation are being ignored, scoffed at and avoided.

 Take a stand and the people will respect and stand with you. Do nothing and our forefathers
 worked for nothing, we gain nothing for ourselves and we pass on an ethically and
 Constitutionally deficit country to our children.


 Subject: the crucific thing

 Robert Frost once wrote, "Education is the ability to listen
 to almost anything without losing your temper."

 I agree with you about Piss-Christ.  Next thing, they will want us to approve of man-boy sex.
 One can have courage and then one can be just plain stupid.
 Being stupid may feel good but it usually loses elections in a democracy.  And it should.

 Remember the discussion we had about Nader.
 I wrote you to explain my vote in 2000 for Nader.
 I said I had lost patience with the Democrats. You didn't agree.
 Now, you and Mike Malloy are where I was in 2000.

 Maybe it is because I am 75 years old and had run out of patience a few years before you
 young squirts who still had to give the Democrats another chance or two.
 I voted for Kerry this time and look what I got.

 Another quitter like Dukakis and Gore.


 Don, thanks for that.

 NBC's 'Fear Factor' Sued for Rat-Eating Episode

  Click  Here

 Watching contestants eat dead rats on NBC's gross-out stunt show "Fear Factor" so disgusted
 a Cleveland man that he has sued NBC for $2.5 million, saying he could not stomach what he saw.

 In a lawsuit filed in Cleveland, paralegal Austin Aitken said, "To have the individuals on the show eat
 (yes) and drink dead rats was crazy and from a viewer's point of view made me throw-up as well as
 another in the house at the same time.  NBC is sending the wrong message to its TV watchers that cash
 can make or have people do just about anything beyond reasoning (sic) and in most cases against their will."

 I like this.
 NBC's president should have to resign over this show.
 America should change its name to "Whore nation," because some people would do anything to be on TV.

 Look at Tim Russert, who sold his dignity years ago to be the top Nazi whore on the "Fear Factor" network.


 Gonzales Disavows Torture Tactics
   To trick the Dems into confirming him...

  Click  Here

 Attorney general nominee Alberto Gonzales drew scorching criticism from Senate Democrats
 on Thursday for his role in Bush administration policies on the treatment of terror suspects.
 He repudiated torture tactics and vowed at a contentious confirmation hearing to abide by
 international treaties on prisoner rights - and the Democrats are expected to buy this horseshit?
"I will no longer represent only the White House. I will represent the United States of America
 and its people. I understand the difference between the two roles," he lied.

"America's troops and citizens are at greater risk" because of administration policies that are
 "tantamount to torture," said Sen. Patrick Leahy, Bush's toy rubber stamp.

 This is one of the uglist handjobs in the history of

 We all know the gelding Democrats are going to confirm Mr Torture.

 I would bet $1000 on it, and I don't have $1000 to lose.

 The Democrats are handjobbing you and me and the entire nation with this horseshit charade.
 They're going to confirm Gonzales and nothing will stop them, but for the idiots like you and me
 who are halfway paying attention, they're pretending to "grill" Gonzales but it's just a ruse
 to make us think they're doing their jobs.

 The Democrats are lying to protect Bush and it makes me f-ing sick.

 The democrats are lying to us like they were Bush's prison bitches.
 For a pack of Camel no-filters, they're going to confirm Mr. Torture.

 If the senate Democrats would reject Gonzales, I would gain a shred of respect for them.
 But that won't happen.

 They don't care that Bush lied us into a bloody war just to enrich his selfish ass.
 They don't care that Bush has killed 1342 soldiers.
 They don't care that Bush has killed 100,000 cilvilians
 They don't care that Bush has plans to invade Iran and Syria and who the fuck knows who else.

 I'm so tired of being handjobbed by the senate Democrats.
 I'm so tired of hearing the senate Democrats swear they're fighting for you and me while they blow Bush.

 Madness in Iraq continues unabated
  by Gene Lyons

  Click  Here

 Sometimes, [soldiers] say, they fire on vehicles encroaching with [in] 30 metres,
 sometimes they fire at 20 metres. "The Economist account quotes a" bullish lieutenant"
 as saying, "If anyone gets too close to us, we [bleeping] waste them. It's kind of a
 shame, because it means we've killed a lot of innocent people.... It gets to the point
 where you can't wait to see guys with guns, so you start shooting everybody."
 Before his impending retirement, maybe Colin Powell should try this simple argument
 on Bush: Regardless of good intentions, to the besieged Iraqis we Americans are
 becoming the tsunami.


 Subject: marijuana

 Marijuana was made illegal in the 1930's through the corporate efforts of Dupont.

 Dupont had just invented nylon and wanted the US Navy rope contract. But rope at the time was made
 with the much cheaper hemp. So Dupont went after hemp by attacking marijuana. Not only did they engage
 in intensive government lobbying, but they also launched a massive publicity attack against marijuana.

 Dupont produced and distributed the film "Reefer Madness" in order to scare public opinion against pot.
 It all worked. Marijauna was made illegal and Dupont got its rope contract. What's more interesting is the US is
 the only country in the world to not make use of industrial hemp, whose uses range from paper pulp to medicine.

 When a mistake is not admitted it becomes a failure.
 Obviously this country's drug laws are full of mistakes especially the ones regulating marijuana.
 Keep swingin' the hammer.
