Quote of the Day

"I didn't say that there was a direct 
  connection between 9-11 and Saddam." 
       -- Dubya,  Link

 Funny how a majority of soldiers in Iraq thought that.
 I wonder how many times Bush used "Saddam" and
 "9-11" in the same sentence in the last four years?

"The Iraq invasion may be the single most misguided, dishonest and counter-productive 
  expenditure of our nation's blood and treasure in its history.  And almost all of this was 
  evident from the start to anyone who cared to look."

Iraq -- U.S. News Media's Waterloo
 by Robert Parry as seen on  Consortiumnews.com


For three decades, the Washington press corps has been living off its Watergate reputation as spunky
defenders of the public's right to know and the U.S. Constitution. On this third anniversary of Bush's
invasion of Iraq, it's now clear that the bloody conflict -- started amid a war fever fueled by false press
reports on Iraq's WMD -- was the Waterloo, a crushing defeat, for the media's beloved Watergate myth.
The American people must now face the challenge of building a new more independent press

Note: Consortiumnews.com  is the most important site on the Internet


Bush Didn't Bungle Iraq
 He really did accomplish his mission


Don't kid yourself -- Bush and Cheney accomplished exactly what they set out to do.
In case you've forgotten what their real mission was, let me remind you of Ari Fleisher's
original announcement, three years ago, launching of what he called,

"Operation Iraqi Liberation."

How cute.
Then, Karl Rove made them change it to "OIF" -- Operation Iraqi Freedom.
But the 101st Airborne wasn't sent to Basra to get its hands on Iraq's OIF.


Bush "confident' about quagmire


America's Murder Monkey on Monday cited success in stabilizing an insurgent stronghold in Iraq,
saying he has "confidence in our strategy" and critics should look beyond the thousands dead to see progress.

Bush tried a new tactic to boost sagging support for the quagmire, telling a story about a campaign to rid
Tal Afar of terrorism against civilians. Success there "gives reason for hope for a free Iraq," he said.
Bush said some insurgents have been killed or captured by Iraqi and US soldiers.

Bush meant to underscore another point the White House is trying to make: evidence of progress
is more difficult than daily bombings and deaths to capture in media sound bites.

Let's hear it for George W. Bush!
After three long and bloody years, our trained Monkey and his Dick have managed to find
a city, or a town, or a neighborhood called Tal Afar that they've been able to overrun and secure.

...and they call that a success?

It's the same handjob we've gotten about "capturing the third-ranking al Qaeda," who nobody ever
heard of and, in fact, might be a nothing more than a made up name to make the whore press drool.

Hey Monkey, if you want to impress us, capture and secure a city we've heard of,
like Baghdad, Tikrit, Basra or Fallujah.



It's not a 'War'


Bush marked the anniversary of his bloody quagmire Sunday by touting the efforts to build democracy there
and avoiding any mention of the daily violence that rages three years after he ordered an invasion.
"We are implementing a strategy that will lead to victory in Iraq," the president lied.

The president didn't utter the word "war."


Subject: Bartcop signs in Toledo

Hey Bart:

The local news showed several "Worst President Ever" signs being toted by local protesters
in Toledo over the weekend. Think I even saw a Bartcop sticker on one of them.

You're everywhere dude!
Keep swinging the hammer.

"Yesterday marked three years of war in Iraq -- but not to Bush. To Bush, it was "the third 
 anniversary of the beginning of the liberation of Iraq. Bush's avoidance of the word "war" in the 
 context of Iraq is the rule, not the exception. In the carefully chosen lexicon of White House 
 speeches, that particular word is almost exclusively reserved for the "global war on terror." 
 So there is no war, except for the war that never ends, and we're winning."
     -- Dan Froomkin,   Link


Subject: Voting for Nader in 2000

Anybody voting for Nader in 2000 (myself included) did so because they did NOT want to vote for Gore or Bush.
They all knew Nader wasn't going to win but still voted for him.

Dude, Bush is really happy you refused to vote for Gore.
Votes like that put Bush in a position to ruin the world.

I didn't vote for Gore because he didn't separate himself from Clinton.

Are you sure you were paying attention?
Gore DID seperate himself from Clinton - and that's a huge reason he lost.
He even picked that fuck Lieberman to PROVE he was getting away from Clinton
because Liebermen was Clinton's strongest Democratic critic.

I know you always compare Clinton's "Monica incident" with Bush lying about starting a war,
but I was really disappointed with Clinton.  If he had screwed every intern in the white house
I would have thought, "WOW he can't keep his pants on."  That would have been the end of it.

But no - he comes on prime time TV and says, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman."
Then when it comes out that he did have relations with her - HE IS NOW A LIAR.
He threw it all out the window with that lie.  His integrity disappeared in a flash.

You're entitiled to your opinion, but I won't let you change the facts.
Clinton is a lawyer - he knew exactly what words he was using.
DC law defines "sexual relations" as intercourse, and they never did that.
Monica called Clinton "that big creep" because he refused to have sexual realtions with her.

You can scream "picky, picky" all you want, but if I drive my car from Tulsa to Tacoma,
and you ask me, "Have you ever been to Seattle?" the factual answer is "No."

I don't owe anyone a long-ass explanation about how close I got to Seattle without ever 
actually having set foot inside the city limits. The answer is just plain "No."

Now we have 2318 dead soldiers, 11 trillion missing dollars and a never-ending world war because
over 550 Floridia Democrats thought that Clinton lied about "sexual relations" with a woman.

Lastly, have YOU ever lied about sex?
If some crazy asshole with unlimited time and money visited every friend, co-worker, relative and
neighbor of yours and threatened them with dying in prison unless they gave up some dirt on you,
would you come out squeaky clean?   Or would someone say, "JAMES IS NOW A LIAR?"

Nothing personal, just showing you a mirror.


America's Blinders


Now that most Americans no longer believe in the war, now that they no longer trust Bush, 
now that the evidence of deception has become overwhelming, we might ask: 
How come so many people were so easily fooled?

The question might help us understand why Americans rushed to declare their support as 
the President was sending troops halfway around the world to Iraq.

One example is the way the press reacted to Powell's UN presentation, a speech which may have 
set a record for the number of falsehoods told in one talk. In it, Powell confidently rattled off his "evidence": 
satellite photographs, audio records, reports from informants, with precise statistics on how many gallons 
of this and that existed for chemical warfare. The New York Times was breathless with admiration. 
The Washington Post editorial was titled "Irrefutable" and declared that after Powell's talk "it is hard to 
imagine how anyone could doubt that Iraq possesses weapons of mass destruction."

Yep, that's the "ultra-liberal" New York Whore Times and the "ultra-liberal" 
Washington Whore Post, beating war drums for their main man George.


Some TV Can Hurt Your Brain


Could Oprah and General Hospital be bad for your brain?

New research suggests that elderly women who watch daytime soap operas and talk shows
are more likely to suffer from cognitive impairment than women who abstain from such fare.

Women who watched talk shows were 7.3 times more likely to have long-term memory problems.
Those who watched soap operas were 13.5 times more likely to have problems with attention.

The researchers didn't find any evidence that TV shows helped improve cognitive abilities in the women studied, either.

What's going on? The study can't and doesn't answer that question, Fogel said, leaving it unclear if a preference
for soaps and talk shows is a cause of cognitive difficulties or a symptom. "One possibility is that people are unable
to watch smarter shows because they're too cognitively stimulating for a weak mind," Fogel said. 

I guess this shows why stupid people tend to watch FOX News...


Subject: Bart - Bush confusion

Bart, you wrote,

<<Craig, I don't attack a position if it makes sense.
<<And those who see me as Bush's clone are on the extreme left.
<<How else could they confuse me with Bush?

Lets see Bart, you advocated torturing, "The Certainly Guilty"...So does Bush.
That makes you and Bush on the same side, Pro-Illegal Torture!

See Bart, The Geneva Conventions, PROHIBIT TORTURE. Even with
"The Certainly Guilty".

Like I mentioned before, The Church used to torture, "The Certainly Guilty Witches".
Who turned out not to be, "Certainly Guilty", after all...

Too bad you did not understand this analogy, too bad about your I.Q. problem.

Then there's Hillarys support of the war...She wants to do Syria & Iran too!
So, if you support Hillary, then you support her positions...PRO-WAR!!

Best Regards Tortureboy...
Rob Mahon

Rob, sometimes you can be such a monkey.

OK, let's argue on your terms for a minute.

Let's assume "breaking the law" is "breaking the law."
Let's say you have a five year old daughter who falls thru a glass door and she's bleeding out.
There's no time to wait for an ambulance and the hospital is at least ten miles away.

The speed limit to the hospital is 25 MPH, but you're certain your daughter will die if you 
stick to your guns and decide that it's important to obey all the laws all the time.

I believe that in the most extreme of circumstances, you do what you gotta do.
You, apparently, would let your daughter die before you'd break traffic laws,
however my daughter would survive because I'd do anything to save her.

However one feels about this subject, isn't that the primary reason Bush "won" in 2004?
Because people felt he'd "break the speed limit" while Kerry would let his daughter, or New York,
ot the nation die, because he'd nuance every issue to death instead of taking bold action?

Meanwhile, Bush tortures every darkie he can find, just for the fun of it, and you see us as twins.

Truth is, we'd BOTH break the law to save our daughter, but one of us is lying to himself.

Managed Demolition?

Subject: Hillary opinions

Bart (and Jimmy),
Hillary Clinton, ever the pragmatic political tool that she is, cannot possibly deliver as a president. 

That's known as a gratuitious assertion..

Instead of using her term as an elected senator of New York to spearhead meaningful resistance NOW 
against the most fetid administration in US history, she's trading in political capital by not making waves 
and refusing to rock an already sinking boat. This has happened time and time again, on issue after issue, 
and it has been sickening to witness. 

I have a different opinion, probably because I'm "stupid."
Instead of morphing into Cindy Sheehan, Jane Fonda and Code Pink overnight, she's methodically 
and strategically taking steps that will put her in the Oval Office so she can rid America of the BFEE.

To give someone a pass as a senator in the hopes that he or she will make amends as a future president
is nothing less than to express contempt for democracy and utter disregard for people's lives that are 
being ruined as we speak. It also reeks of moral relativism of the lowest order.

I have a different opinion, probably because I'm a "closet Republican."
To attempt to force a candidate to become Dukakis, Mondale and Carter is political suicide.
It's the same mistake our party makes again and again and we wonder why we lose 49 states.

I also despair of the fact that you constantly denigrate alternative candidates and the minority 
of people who have made conscious and civic-minded decisions to support those candidates. 

I despair at the thought of losing again to the Murder Monkeys who are destroying our lives
I've promised to support the Democratic nominee - have you? 
Has Molly?  Has Arianna?  Has Nader?

The fractures developing within American society are far deeper than the nominal and quite insignificant 
fissures that exist between the Republican and Democratic parties - who actually accomplish more for ill 
by acting in concert than the majority of Americans are willing to admit.


You see two parties acting in concert.
I see vicious wolves eating the clueless sheep.

You say it's about "all that."
I say it's about winning instead of losing.
I'm tired of losing.

Once we take power from the monsters, I'll help with change,
but as long as America and the world are run by fascist bastards - we need to win.

Subject: water wars

Bart, Peak oil is the reason behind water wars. 
This will create the greater impact on water shortage than anything. 

Well, people who walk and ride bikes need fresh water, too.

If you're not aware of the oil consumption out of control and the looming crisis, its only because Perkel and I 
have continued to try to tell you this but you only find out the hard way, by reading some violent script in Mexico. 

I understand the concept of Peak Oil, but I don't think we're there just yet.
When we get close to Peak Oil, it will cost a lot more than $61 per barrel.

I, my friend, travel into the future, I have visions of permaculture, and the energy independent communities. 
Does America have to die to save the Planet? Will the new world design be in South America? 

Whatever, you don't travel into the future. 
I think you're not even close to seeing the stars, you live in denial about Peak oil Bart!!!!!!!!! 

Russ, tell us how fresh water is linked to Peak Oil.
If it makes sense I'll print it.

Write what YOU know about it, then include a link if you want.
But don't send links only.  
People who do that make me think they're just following someone else.

Too tired to think
 Why Bush is a loser, by Andrew Sullivan


There is no shortage of theories to explain the seemingly growing dysfunction in the Bush administration.
I don't mean by this the flawed structural decisions, I mean the daily decisions that can so easily derail any government.

Here are a few. Bush was given clear warning about Katrina, yet wasted days before he took any real action.
He nominated an unqualified servant for the Supreme Court and infuriated his base before picking someone else.
He so botched his prescription drug plan that the elderly are just itching to go to the polls to vote Democrat.

Andrew, Bush has never done any thinking in his life.
He's always had everything handed to him.


Subject: The Ubiquitous WPE Posters

Hey Bart, went to my front porch this morning (Monday the 20th) and picked up the local paper.
Poured my first cup of coffee and looked at the front page and got that warm, fuzzy, connected feeling.

Sunday there was a peace rally in my town; Mt. Pleasant Michigan.
The local paper, "The Morning Sun" wrote a front page story and had pics.

Right there on the front page was a photo of a young lady with a WPE poster!!!!
You could even read the BartCop.com on it.

Pretty hard to not have a good day after seeing that!!!
Thanks buddy,

Dave, thanks for the note,
and I knew what ubiquitous meant :)


 Iraq pumps 2,000,000 barrels a day,
(and that was before the 2002 Halliburton Upgrade)
 times today's oil price which is  $61.96 a barrel
makes $123,920,000 Bush stole just yesterday

2314  2318 have died for Halliburton




"On the third anniversary of the Iraq invasion, we should congratulate the generals and 
  war planners for one hell of an effective land battle when it comes to American casualties."  
      -- Rush the insane druggie,   Link 

Congratulate the war palnners for so few vasualties?
You mean 2318 dead and 25,000 wounded isn't enough?


Subject: Why not outsource Secret Service, too?

Congress now has an additional 45 days with which to thoroughly investigate
and evaluate the port security deal arranged with the United Arab Emirates.

Despite many questions about how secure our ports will be under this deal,  Bush continues to pledge
that it is a good program for the U.S. and that our ports will be in very secure hands with a Dubai company
owned by the United Arab Emirates. He is so confident in the plan that he knew nothing about until very
recently and that he has pledged to veto any attempts to alter or nullify the original deal.

I think the American people would have much greater confidence in the president's assurances if he
would fire the Secret Service and hire this same company to personally protect him and his family.

I am certain there are unemployed Muslim jihadists who would jump at the opportunity to come to
this country and provide security for our president. Outsourcing this job category to a foreign country
would be in line with his administration's policies to do so with other fields of employment.

How To Steal an Election


It's easier to rig an electronic voting machine than a Las Vegas slot machine, says UPenn professor Steve Freeman. 
That's because Vegas slots are better monitored and regulated than America's voting machines
President Bush may owe his 2004 win to an unfair vote count.

We talked about this a while back.
Those progressive slot machines that are connected to other casinoes* - they are monitored,
they are checked, they are regulated and you can bet your hosue they have a paper trail.

But the Democrats are happy with losing elections.
They don't insist on an accurate count, so 5-point leads turn to 2-point losses on election day.
If they want to commit suicide, should we be asked to pay for it?

Reminder: Not a dime for the Democrats until AFTER they start fighting back. (Wes Clark excluded)


Subject: the war

How is coming out against the Iraq war hugging that extreme left wall?  

I'm all for people coming out against the war.
I'm just saying Hillary can't lead that parade, or she'll become "Hanoi Hillary,"
and the BFEE will get the undecideds if Hillary is painted as a left-wing extremist.
Look what they did to Kerry, Cleland and Murtha...

How is you calling Iraq war opponents extreme leftists different from Bill O'Reilly 
calling Iraq war opponents extreme leftists?  

Bill O'Reilly, like every Republican, wants to destroy any opposition to Bush.
I want the bastard driven from office and put in a jail.
Can you see the difference between O'Reilly and Bart?

Nobody is saying that you are a clone of Bush, ...neither do we say that Bush is a clone of Hitler.  

Ten seconds ago, you asked how I was different from O'Reilly,
now you say nobody is making that comparison?

Bush merely uses a lot of the same tactics that Hitler did.  
Similarly, you use a lot of the same tactics as people like Bush and O'Reilly, among them, 
knocking down strawmen like, "Some people say I'm a clone of Bush."  

Funny, when saying "Nobody calls you a Bush clone," you accuse me of O'Reilly behavior.
I guess I need to punish my lying eyes, cause you said no such thing, right?.
By the way, do you enjoy high-stakes gambling?

When will people learn you can't bet on what the other guy does not have?
If you do that when money is involved, you'll go broke immediately.
As long as there's no penalty for being wrong, you can say ANYTHING.

People who have the facts on their side do not need such irrational rhetorical tricks.
Scott in San Jose

Scott, it's comforting to know that nobody accuses me of acting like a Republican.
I guess I'll punish my lying eyes again...


U.S. media wallows in amnesia


As Bush's quagmire enters Year Four, an alarming number of Americans continue 
to believe that Saddam personally caused 9-11.

A Gallup poll "found that 39 per cent still believe Saddam was personally involved in the 9/11 attacks. 
Shortly before the war began, 51 per cent held that view, but that was before the many official, and media,
reports to the contrary. Yet a high number still cling to the view."

The poll also revealed that "today 57 per cent of Americans express some degree of certainty that WMDs
were in Iraq just before the fighting began 29% are sure and another 28% think the weapons were there, 
though they have some doubt."

Some doubt?


Subject: Peggy Noonan

Hi Bart,
It seems that Noonan is beginning the newest republican campain talking point--that W is a LIBERAL,
not a real conservative.  This is what the repugs will use to distance themselves from a very unpopular president.  
And it is what they will use to tar all the dems--they are spend-crazy liberals just like bush.
I have heard this liberal labelling of bush pop up on hannity already also.  They say Bush is a liberal just like 
the dems, so we'll need to elect a true conservative to fix this "liberal's" mess.   Expect to hear a lot more of it.
Will it fly with the public?  Will it matter with Diebold running the election? 
These power-crazed right wing nut cases will stoop to anything to keep power.  
Even calling their beloved leader liberal.

The season finale of The Shield is tonight.
If Kavanaugh raped Vic's wife as last week's episode was closing,
it's a safe bet that Vic will answer Bernard Shaw's 1988 Dukakis question the right way.

He'll strangle Kavanaugh with his bare hands so he can watch him die up-close.

Warning: Tonight's episode is 90 minutes, if you're setiing a VCR or a TIVO.
