Volume 1533 - Lay my burden down

"DeLay's problem isn't with the Democrats, Delay's problem is with the country.
And so Delay has a challenge to lay out a case that the country comes to believe."

Congress close to passing the Bankrupt = Jail Act
Bankruptcy legislation that could make it impossible for thousands of people
to wipe away their debts is nearing passage by Congress.
After eight years of failed efforts, the banks and credit card companies finally have
purchased congress, so we're facing the biggest overhaul of bankruptcy laws in a
quarter-century and that's bad news for non-rich people who get sick or have an accident.
The monstrosity has been catapulted toward enactment by a Republican majority
buttressed by the rigged fall elections that the Democrats didn't care to challenge.
The legislation, which garnered some Democratic votes, cleared the Senate last month 74-25.
This truly is one of the worst
things Bush has done to America's non-rich.
"Exactly three years ago today, James Traficant (I-JAIL) was found guilty."

Subject: The DLC
"DLC CEO Al From: "You've Got To Reject Michael Moore And The MoveOn Crowd."
(NBC's "First Read," March 1, 2005)
"Rank-And-File Democrats `Are More Like Us Than MoveOn,' which Al From called a group of `elites,
people who sit in their basements all the time and play on their computers.'"
So that's my problem! I've always thought that the "elite" were folks who ran huge corporations,
had several vacation homes, and had chauffeurs drive them wherever they go. Sort of like Al From.
I just didn't understand that "elites" were people "who sit in their basements all the time and play on their computers."
I thought we were supposed to be fragmented and fight when we were winning...
Should we have a debate about this?
The DLC has produced the only two-termer since FDR.
Should we reject theie ideas and go with the lose-49-states crowd?
...and you're afraid to own a gun?
Disabled girl victim of sexual attack
A 16-year-old disabled girl was punched and forced to engage in videotaped sexual acts
with several boys in a high school auditorium as dozens of students watched, according to witnesses.
Authorities are investigating and no charges have been filed in the alleged attack last month at Mifflin High School.
Four boys suspected of involvement were sent home and have not returned to class. The principal was suspended
and will be fired for not calling police, school officials said. And three assistant principals were suspended and will
be reassigned to other schools.
An assistant principal cautioned the girl's father against calling 911 to avoidComments?

"You have to be very careful before you start tinkering with the rules. I mean the rules have been changed before.
You have to think down the road. The senate's not always going to be Republican. History shows that."

The problem is - Republicans can't f-ing think.
They impeached Clinton for having a girlfriend while they were screwing their secretaries.
Trying to reason with a Republican is like reasoning with a crack whore who needs a fix..

DeLay’s ‘Moral’ Defenders
by Joe Conason
As the rhetoric of the radical right turns shrill and even violent, the stunning moral
emptiness of its leadership can no longer be ignored. Pious politicians and political
preachers may hope to divert attention from their disgrace by threatening judges or
denouncing the media. But what has emerged from the scandals surrounding Tom
DeLay is a dark portrait of Washington’s conservative elite, whose behavior should
repel every American honestly concerned about "moral values."

Subject: Polio comment
Bart, I was a little boy in the first grade when I saw the headline in the Detroit Free Press.
It was in the super large font like we've only seen in old papers announcing the end of WWII.
"POLIO CONQUERED" it said.
My mom cried with joy. I knew it was big.
My bottle of Chinaco is empty but when I find another I'll join you in that shot to honor Dr. Julius.
Now if we spent money on research like the Republicans spend money on killingjust think what might be done.
Bob in Cadillac Michigan
Bob, thanks for that.
Also, I'm proud of the bartcop.com readers.
I didn't see one e-mail saying "Knock off the polio crap!"
Congress rejects proposal to investigate war profiteers
This way crooked companies like Halliburton can continue to steal
A U.S. Senate committee approved a proposal last night from Bush for an additional $80.5 billion
to fund the war in Iraq. At the same time, it voted against a proposal from Sen. Dorgan (D-ND) to
investigate the numerous allegations of fraud and profiteering by military contactors in Iraq.
At least ten military audits have criticized Halliburton's Iraq spending. Pentagon auditors reported
that 43 percent of the company's expenditures could not be verified by normal accounting procedures.
The Pentagon ignored the auditors' complaints and agreed to pay all the costs to Halliburton anyway..
Since Halliburton has official permission to loot the Treasury until the end of Bush's war (which is forever)
we can't really blame them. After all, stealing from Social Security is what Halliburton does - it's who they are.
