"Bush sat on the aisle in the second row, next to his wife, Pickles. When Bush's face
  appeared on giant screen TVs, many in the crowd outside St. Peter's booed and whistled." 
    --Victor Simpson, "Never bring a monkey to a Funeral",


 Goss launches another review of Bush's CIA 
  He's certain to be fair and balanced with his boss

  Click  Here
 CIA Director Porter Goss has ordered an internal review to determine why doubts about Curveball,
 a key source of prewar intelligence on Iraq, were not shared with policymakers, an official said Friday.
Information from Curveball, a drunken and delusional German agent who provided intelligence on WMDs,
 allowed the BFEE to fabricate reasons to steal Iraq's oil.

 A fake handjob of a presidential commission assigned to investigate U.S. intelligence on WMDs reported
 last week that Curveball's information was bogus and that internal CIA doubts about its veracity were
 never shared with White House policymakers, if you can believe they're so bold as to claim that lie..



"In contrast to the boooing that hit Bush at the Pope's funeral, Bill Clinton was mobbed
 and greeted with adoring chants of U.S.A.!, U.S.A.!, U.S.A.! As Mr. Clinton went for a walk,
 ...shoppers, tourists having lunch at outdoor cafes and Italian business people going to meetings
 all stopped to greet him. People starting yelling "Bill, Bill, Bill," and a few shouted "U.S.A.!"
     --Al Rodgers, "Clinton Mobbed U.S.A! U.S.A."

  Mexico loses stability - danger ahead
   Presidential Hopeful Resigned to Jail

  Click  Here

  Mexico's most popular politician plans to give himself up soon and go to jail, after political opponents
 ruled he must face trial for a minor crime that could screw the 2006 presidential elections for the Americas

 Mexico City Mayor Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, a combative leftist who is the clear favorite to win the polls,
 may be knocked out of the race because of an accusation he ignored a court order in a land dispute. 
 The case is likely to cause months of political turmoil in Mexico, a major oil exporter and big U.S. trade partner.

 While other Latin American countries like Argentina and Venezuela have suffered upheaval in recent years,
 Mexico has enjoyed years of stability since its mid-1990s financial meltdown, known as the "tequila crisis."

 That steadiness may now be at risk, Wall Street analysts fear. Mexican stocks are down sharply in recent weeks.


  Subject: being consistent

 One thing that most people believe about George Bush is that he's consistent. But I'm not sure being
 consistent is going to help persuade people to like his Social Security reforms. When you look at his
 legacy as president so far, it doesn't look real good. He turned the worlds biggest surplus into the world's
 biggest deficit. He ignored the warnings about bin Laden, who is - still free. We went to war in Iraq on
 bad intelligence. Medicare reform is a failure. Taxes are up, the dollar is down. The flat worlders want
 to control the schools. And the government wants to put tracking chips (RFIDs) in federally issued
 ID cards to spy on everything we do.

 So - do we want Bush to be consistent with his past when it comes to Social Security? I don't think so!
 I think we should put it off another four years and focus on paying off the national debt. I don't think we
 can afford to risk Social Security with someone who has a bad track record.

"It was a bitter-sweet reminder how, not long ago, the US was both respected and liked abroad.
 What a difference five years has made. Imagine if Bush tried strolling down those same streets in Rome,
 or any other European city, yesterday. Do you think he’d make to the end of the first block without
 someone spitting on him or worse?  Not since Hitler has a national leader been so hated by most Europeans."
      --Stephen Pizzo

 Bart, a Texas REPUBLICAN gave this speech in the house of representatives last week. 
Like you say - it will be the Repubs who have enough balls to go after Bush.
  Subject: Who's better off?
    by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas)

  Click  Here

 Whenever the administration is challenged regarding the success of the Iraq war, or regarding the false information
used to justify the war, the retort is:  “Aren’t the people of Iraq better off?”  The insinuation is that anyone who
expresses any reservations about supporting the war is an apologist for Saddam Hussein and every ruthless act
he ever committed.  The short answer to the question of whether the Iraqis are better off is that it’s too early to
declare, “Mission Accomplished.”  But more importantly, we should be asking if the mission was ever justified
or legitimate.  Is it legitimate to justify an action that some claim yielded good results, if the means used to achieve
them are illegitimate?  Do the ends justify the means?

  The information Congress was given prior to the war was false.  There were no weapons of mass destruction;
 the Iraqis did not participate in the 9/11 attacks; Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein were enemies and did not
 conspire against the United States; our security was not threatened; we were not welcomed by cheering Iraqi crowds
 as we were told; and Iraqi oil has not paid any of the bills.  Congress failed to declare war, but instead passed a
 wishy-washy resolution citing UN resolutions as justification for our invasion.  After the fact we’re now told the
 real reason for the Iraq invasion was to spread democracy, and that the Iraqis are better off.  Anyone who questions
 the war risks being accused of supporting Saddam Hussein, disapproving of democracy, or “supporting terrorists.” 
 It’s implied that lack of enthusiasm for the war means one is not patriotic and doesn’t support the troops.  In other
 words, one must march lock-step with the consensus or be ostracized.

 Oil was approximately $27 a barrel before the war, now it’s more than twice that.  I wonder who benefits from this?

 All Republicans are insane, but some are willing to fight.
 The Democrats will get back the White House and Congress if someone hands it to them.


 Rape Cardinal to vote for new Pope 
   Law's role in Rome sparks outrage in U.S.

 As a cardinal under 80, the Rape Cardinal will enter the conclave to elect a new pope.

 Isn't that like letting the inmates voting with the Parole Board?
 Like Nixon picking Ford, won't Law vote for a "wink, wink" Pope? 

 Subject: Your radio show

 Just finished show 70, which would be my first.  It was even better than I could have believed. 
 I appreciate your self-depreciation thing, but it had me believing you had some freaky high pitched
 weirdass voice, and since you are from OK, I imagined you would have a huge hick accent (my hick
 accent is small), as I associate all red states with the southern hick Georgia accent, which is about 2
 or 3 notches better than the KORESH forsaken New England accent (from about Boston up to Maine
 -their speech is the most annoying sound in the entire world, GA-FL-TX drawl is a distant second).

 Dude, your voice is perfect for radio, I was so pleasantly surprised--the few posts on the websites
 had me prepared to listen to a straight freak.  And the lead in with the personal touch was a nice way
 to get into my first show.  I don't know about the rest of the subscribers, but getting a feel for your
 life is very important to me, it makes the show great in my book.

 You are doing an incredible thing.  I tried to remember how I came across your site 1-2 years ago, 
 but could not do it.  I also have wondered how I could have eagerly anticipated a new posting every day
 for all that time, but it never occurred to me to listen to your show (not even the free snips you  throw out),
 or why I never thought to throw some loot your way.  After all, you have
provided a daily dose of sanity
 nearly every day of my corporate slavery for the last 1-2 years, I throw
you a meager donation and am
 rewarded with 6 mos free??? 

 Thanks for what you do, I will hit the tip jar when I can.
 It is a good idea to have it up every day, it will get idiots like me thinking.

 Don't ever stop swinging that hammer!!

  GOP consultant marries his boyfriend
   Yet he works to elect fascists who call him "faggot"

  Click  Here

Artie Finkelstein, a prominent Republican consultant who has directed a series of hard-edged political
 campaigns to elect conservatives Nazi bastards over the last 25 years, said Friday that he had married his male partner
 in a civil ceremony at his home in Massachusetts.

 Mr. Finkelstein, 59, who has made a practice of defeating Democrats by trying to demonize them as liberal,
 said in a brief interview that he had married his partner of 40 years to ensure that the couple had the same
 benefits available to married heterosexual couples.

 One longtime conservatives Nazi bastards associate, who cited Mr. Finkelstein's cowardice in declining to
 name his boyfriend said, "T
his is the same man who was the architect of Jesse Helms's political rise."



"I think a walk in faith constantly confronts doubt, as faith becomes more mature.
 And you constantly confront, you know, questions. My faith is strong. There is
 no doubt
in my mind there is a living God. And no doubt in my mind that the Lord,
 Christ, was sent
  by the Almighty. No doubt in my mind about that." 
       --Dubya, who also had "no doubt" that Saddam had WMDs    Attribution

 1) Jeb Bush, George W. Bush, and Tom Delay are all world renowned neurologists.

 5) Pulling life support is bad in Florida when authorized by the legal (white) next-of-kin, but pulling life support
    is good in Texas when you run out of money and the (black) mother pleads not to pull the plug on her baby.

11) Jesus was wrong when he said that a man and woman should leave their parents and cleave only to each other.

13) Interfering in a family's private tragedy is a great reason to cut short a vacation, but getting a memo
      that warns a known terrorist is determine to strike inside the US is cause to relax and finish up some R&R.

 Subject: Bart attacking veterans

Your question about veterens returning home with lost limbs reveals your ignorance about military culture. 
 If you ask them, most of these guys will tell you that what they really want to do is get rehabilitated and
 go back to their units.  No matter how bad it is over there, they are, for the most part, pretty gung-ho
 about "doing their jobs."  So you  can't really blame them for not "warning" the people behind them. 
 As far as they are concerned, fighting in Iraq is a noble effort, and if you lose your arm or leg doing it,
 it is all the more noble.

 This is hardly surprising; anyone who has seen boot camp up close understands the socialization process
 of joining the military is pretty much a brainwashing operation.  Additionally, the realities of combat only
 serve to reinforce military indoctrination, and cause them to justify both their efforts and the war. 
 After all, once you have killed a few dozen people and had your arm has been blown off, what is going to
 cause more cognitive dissonance; believing that you were fighting and injured in a fight for freedom, or
 believing that you tossed your life away to help Bush's dad get rich?

 Given the psycological incentives, what is surprising is that any injured vets escape both their indoctrination
 and overcome the awful reality of how badly they have been used, and speak out at all.

 Five years from now, they will have had much more time to reflect.  At that point, they will have grown much
 more accustomed to life with their injury.  I will be amazed if many of these, who are now very gung-ho,
 have not grown disillusioned and bitter.  But I sure as hell won't blame them for not having everything
 figured out in the immediate aftermath of their injury.  Despite your rant, I suspect you won't either.

 The NW Bru

Hey, unlike Bush's fancy-pants hooker,

..i lied

 *I* never made any claims about being a military insider.
 I'm jusy saying by remaining silent while the carnage continues, disabled vets seem to be
 giving up their chance to prevent that which they'll surely claim later is a world of horrors.


  Centrist Democrats warn liberals
   Do we want to win or lose 50 states next time?

  Click  Here

 The Democrats' postelection war about what they should stand for is heating up again,
 with centrists challenging liberals to "real fights" within the party about staking out a tougher
 position against terrorism.

"To win back the White House in 2008, our party must change.  We must be willing to discard
 political strategies that may make us feel good but that
keep falling short. We must finally reject
 the false choice between exciting our base
and expanding our appeal, because unless we both
 motivate and persuade, we'll lose
every time," said DLC's Al From and Bruce Reed, who clearly
 have no idea why we lost so bad in 2004.


 There might be some validity to what they're saying, but we lost because we refused to fight.
 When our 2008 candidate says, "We must fight - like proper ladies," all we can do in plan for 2012.
When our 2008 candidate says, "You cannot mention GOP crimes or abuses at our convention,"
 that means we've
chosen to forfeit instead of fighting back for the third cycle in a row.

 If Hillary ruins, Bill will coach her to an easy and certain victory - if they don't murder them.

 Halliburton frantically working to end public relations nightmare

  Click  Here

 Halliburton initiated a new advertising campaign this week to counter the never-ending saga of bad news
 that plagues the company,
AdWeek reported. The ads, in both video and print format, will attempt to
 "educate those who didn't know what to think about all the charges," a Halliburton spokesperson said,
 referring to the numerous ongoing government investigations and charges of wrongdoing.

 During the 2004 presidential campaign, Halliburton complained that widespread criticism of its behavior
 was "political" and designed only to embarrass Dick Cheney. But, ironically, most of the criticism came
 from officials inside Bush's Justice and Defense departments. Most of the government
investigations from
 2004 continue today even though the presidential campaign has ended.

 So, it seems logical that Halliburton would embark on a new ad campaign to praise itself.

   The Salk Youngner vaccine:
  Fifty years free from fear of polio

   You have to be old to get how big that is

..my good friend Juli

  Click  Here

 In the late 1940s, however, medical science produced the tools needed to conquer the polio virus
 and Youngner, then beginning his career as a microbiologist, was in position to exploit them.

 Working for years in a basement laboratory in Oakland, he and a group of dogged researchers
 assembled by Dr. Jonas Salk at Pitt mastered those tools to produce a polio vaccine.

 Fifty years ago, on April 12, 1955, they made the much-awaited pronouncement:
 The polio vaccine was "safe, effective and potent."

 Before Dr. Youngner kicked polio's ass, the worst victims ended up like this:

 Unable to breathe without being locked in this forever coffin.
 Thank you for being a genius that stayed on polio's ass, Dr. Younger!


 Subject: your page and radio show

 Hi Bart,

 I just got through listening to show 72. Not bad.   My comments on your radio show,
 try to tone down your anti-religious rhetoric. I am religious, though not a big fan of organised religion.
 I know it's hard and must seem awful redundant, but you need to keep hammering on Bush and his ilk.
 I really don't care about Shaivo, Jackson, any of them. We have a thief and murderer in the White House
 and anything pales in comparison.

 Keep Hammering and good luck
