1750 - Jesus Wept
"I knew something was happening when I had
John Murtha on several months ago and he
talked about his plan for a timetable. And
I got several calls from people at the Pentagon
and others and they said, "You know Murtha's
right." And I was stunned because you
don't usually get those kinds of calls. Then
General Zinni said that Rumsfeld should resign.
One former general said we have a civil war
going on at the Pentagon. The generals are
trying to reclaim control of the war because
they do believe serious mistakes were made."
--Tim Russert, slut-to-slut with Dom Imus,
Michael Wolff said, "McClellan himself, as though
having some terrible social disability, has, standing miserably
in the press briefing room every day, become
a kick-me archetype. He's Piggy in 'Lord of the Flies': a living
victim, whose reason for being is, apparently,
to shoulder public ridicule and pain (or, come to think of it,
he's Squealer from 'Animal Farm'). He's the person
nobody would ever choose to be."
America at large is starting to realize -- finally
-- that Bush is exactly as stupid as he looks, sounds and acts.
How extraordinary. Something is happening here
that has never happened in America's history. A consensus
is sweeping the nation. Not that the war in Iraq
is wrong, or that oil companies are screwing us blue, or that
the climate is going to hell, or that good-paying
jobs are being replaced by low-paying jobs, or that our
national health care system is a disgrace, or
that that the rich are getting a lot richer while the middle class
gets poorer. While all that's true, and more
and more folks are getting it, that's not the consensus of which
I speak. Nope. This one is bigger! Here it is:
The president of the United States is a moron.
Bush's faith-based FDA said Thursday that "no
sound scientific studies" supported the medical use of marijuana,
contradicting a 1999 review by a panel of highly
regarded scientists. Susan Bro, an agency spokeswoman, said
Thursday's statement resulted from a past combined
review by federal drug enforcement, regulatory and research
agencies that concluded "smoked marijuana has
no currently accepted or proven medical use in the United States
and is not an approved medical treatment."
Well, of course "no studies support MM" because no studies have been
done. Susan Bro didn't unviel a scientific
study that said pot didn't help medically. The government refuses
to study it, and they refuse to study it
because - Oh my God - what if the results confirmed what thousands
of sick people know? That it works!
Subject: song writing
It's the same reason Star Wars rocked and A Phantom
In high school, George Lucas was a geek.
He was (at the time) skinny, small, wore glasses,
and had a somewhat high squeaky voice, with an
obvious interest in science fiction and fantasy.
He channelled that into his film. And so
long as he wasn't wildly successful,
he was able to keep thinking, "God dammit, when
will I be able to make a living?!"
And then Star Wars hit.
And the high he got from that inspired him to
make Empire Strikes Back. That also kicked ass,
and so he made Return of the Jedi, the weakest
of the original trilogy (though still a good movie).
Sixteen years later, he makes a piece of crap
that doesn't even appeal to kids.
Trust me. I saw TPM with a nine-year-old.
He didn't like it.
So there you have it. It's not that great
songwriters lose their talent,
it's that artistic engines lose their fuel when
they become really successful.
I'm with you, but nobody's got more money and success than U2....

everybody's acting like they knew it all along.
From: The situation at Duke
Funny, the same right wing bastards that are attacking
the alleged victim
were the same ones ready to burn Kobe Bryant.
But that can't be because of race or anything.
Dude, good point. The most racist of the whites among us (Republicans)
get back to the behavior of "those people" so they can pretend they're
so "superior" to them.
Meanwhile, on that same page, we had:
Republican County Councilman Keola Childs pleaded guilty to molesting
a male child.
Republican activist John Butler was charged with criminal sexual
assault on a teenage girl.
Republican candidate Richard Gardner admitted to molesting his
Republican Councilman Jack W. Gardner was convicted of molesting
a 13-year old girl.
But the Gop/KKK insists the "darkies" need to be on a leash.
...and why did sexpot Jeff Gannon get a White House press pass with
a fake name?
"The biggest issues of the election are character
issues.... the Republicans' trustworthiness
and honesty and their competence. And
they are going to lose big on both those issues.
After that we get to Iraq, we get to
the economy, we get to healthcare."

Subject: 9-11 conspiracies
Here's the most cogent, non-tin foil hat sounding
arguments that I've seen:
1. Fire had never before caused steel-frame buildings
to collapse except for the three buildings on 9/11,
nor has fire collapsed any
steel high rise since 9/11.
2. The fires, especially in the South Tower and
WTC-7, were small.
3. WTC-7 was unharmed by an airplane and had
only minor fires on the seventh and twelfth floors
of this 47-story steel building
yet it collapsed in less than 10 seconds.

At an outdoor ceremony, Bush told Chinese President
Hu: "China has become successful because the Chinese
people are experience the freedom to buy, and
to sell, and to produce -- and China can grow even more successful
by allowing the Chinese people the freedom to
assemble, to speak freely, and to worship."
Seconds later, one of the people on the White
House south lawn tried to speak
and she was promptly hauled off and arrested...

The Bush-worshipping idiots at CNN then said the
incident was "a blemish" on Hu's visit..
Iran No Threat
He doesn't go by "Negro" anymore...
Even though the threat does not appear imminent,
Iran's resumption of uranium enrichment activities,
its operation of 164 centrifuges and the continuing
stream of extreme statements issued by regime leaders
continue to cause concern, Director of National
Intelligence John Negroponte said April 20.
Negroponte, a Bush felon from the Iran-Contra
years, sought to put Iran's technical capabilities into perspective,
pointing out that Iran will have to enrich
uranium for several more years before it has enough material to
make a bomb. Although intelligence says
Iran is determined to acquire a nuclear weapons capability,
Negroponte said, they believe it might not achieve
that goal until "perhaps into the next decade."

I love your site and witty humor, but the assumption
that men have a higher sex drive is a problem.
Whoa, I don't think I said that.
I linked the writing (or maybe the aggression)
to testosterone and then noted that the songs
get more tired and sappy as the testosterone
wanes - at least that's what I meant to say :)
I would bet on some good tequila that the lack
of females in rock music has litttle or nothing to do
with biology, but everything to do with patriarchy.
Why some of the classics aren't writing good
music these days, maybe the music cooporations
aren't putting forward or encouraging older musicians???
How many musicians on MTV are older than 30???
Keep up the site, its great!
I hear you, but that's no reason why McCartney would write a song as
bad as "Freedom."
I swear, give me an hour of piano lessons and I could do better.

And Detention Camps
by RB Ham
According to many researchers of the power elite,
contained within the dogma of their secret societies
is a fascination with dates, numerology and the
symbolism it represents. An example many cite is April 19.
Hitler's Birthday and also the anniversaries
of the Waco massacre and the OK City bombing.
Or, for instance, George Bush Sr. publicly proclaiming
the birth of a New World Order on 9-11-1991.
We all know what happened exactly 10 years later.
If this is true, and, as some of these researchers
(Alex Jones for example) believe,
these New World Order types truly do view themselves
as a Luceferian, Satanic cult....
And if it's true, as has been discussed openly
by even mainstream sources,
that just one more major terrorist "event"
might usher in Martial Law...
Do you think they would pass up 6-6-6?

Kerry thinking about another White House bid
in 2008 and will decide before the year is out.
"I will make that decision toward the end of
the year, but I'm thinking about it hard," Kerry said.
"If you can get help me find 60,000 votes in Ohio
...," he joked, referring to the close race in that state
he tried to concede early but Der Monkey was already
in his jam-jams for the night.
I've been doing some thinking... no, seriously, ...
We're going to need a military man on the ticket.
My dream ticket is Clinton-Clark or Clark-Clinton, I don't care.
I might be able to live with a Clinton-Kerry ticket, but Kerry-Clinton
is a sure loser.
Kerry lost his balls years ago, plus, he can't speak as well as Bush.
repeat: Kerry can't speak as well as Bush, so he can't win.
We need a fighter this time, not another premature surrenderfest.

Hmmm, not sure what to say about that,
but I don't see a Stones or a U2 or Zeppelin
or Floyd on that list.
Could the lack of testosterone be a factor?

Subject: election year 2006
I agree with your past statements about not having
much of an alternative this year, in terms of forming
a new party to address the corporate takeover
of the government. I think the #1 issue has to be to get
the Bushistas out of Congress and then we will
be able to investigate the issues that need to be investiated.
This is very important to do this year. No doubt,
the supporting documents have been destroyed, but there
might be much to learn in the memories of people
still alive. We need Democrats in that won't stop the investigations.
I have written to my congreeman about these issues,
David Wu of Oregon, and I believe he still support such
investigations. I urge everyone to write their
congresspeople, and get thier response to that question and
make that an issue in this election.
Please keep hammering and encourage others to
pick up the hammer with you and get these evil bastards.
Subject: Can you name a woman

Akron, Ohio's own Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders.
Interesting... of all the women mentioned so far, she would fit the
Of all the women mentioned, wouldn't Chrissie be considered ...kinda,
maybe the most masculine?
That's not an attack, I'm just saying... check out this
line from Tattooed Love Boys:
"I shot my mouth off ...and he showed me what
that hole was for."
Those aren't estrogen lyrics, those are testosterone-on-steroids lyrics.
I think medical science says all humans have both
testosterone and estrogen.
Maybe Chrissie has a little more testosterone
than some ladies, which helps her songwriting.
and maybe Elton John or that guy from Coldplay
are a little heavier on the estrogen,
thus producing more poetry and ballads than headbanging,
Remember, these are not attacks.
Can't the same thing be applied to one's pick of instrument?
Drummers, singers and guitar players are more aggressive.

"I have a vision — maybe just a hope — of a great
revulsion: a moment in which the American people
look at what is happening, realize how their
good will and patriotism have been abused, and put a stop
to this drive to destroy much of what is best
in our country."
I wrote those words three years ago in the introduction
to my column collection, "The Great Unraveling."
It seemed a remote prospect at the time: Baghdad
had just fallen and Bush had a 70 percent approval rating.
Now the great revulsion has arrived. The latest
Fox News poll puts Bush's approval at only 33 percent.
Red America now has a smaller population than
New York City.
The proximate causes of Mr. Bush's plunge in the
polls are familiar: the heck of a job he did on Katrina,
the prescription drug debacle and, above all,
the quagmire in Iraq.
If you see a star in an anti-Bush or pro-peace shirt,
please send that in.
2378 dead soldiers accurate?
Bart, I heard a creepy rumor that there were several
thousand more soldiers who had died
in Germany after they were evacuated from Iraq
who were not in the total body count.
Think it is possible?
Dude, without a free press, there's no way to know.
We printed stories years ago about the wounded being put on trucks in
a hurry, because if they
died pre-truck, they were "war casualties," but if they made it to
the truck or to the plane or the
hospital - whatever - they were counted differently.
I think that 2378 figure is "war casualties."
Maybe the real number is 6,000 dead, but Bush cooks the books.
Changing the rules is a BFEE trademark.
They changed the air quality rules to make Los Angeles, not Houston,
smoggiest city because President Handjob didn't want Houston's reputation
If the American press weren't such worthless bastards, we might know
The reaction to the generals' revolt is getting
ridiculous. Bush and Rumsfeld and Rumsfeld's loyal officers
have gone to such lengths to defend the Pentagon
chief from attacks by a handful of retired generals that he's
starting to look like the secretary of defensiveness.
Officers have always resisted quietly (as Colin Powell did
when proposals were floated to intervene in Bosnia
in the early 1990s), and perhaps the real question is why
this has taken so long to go public.
It figures that Powell (R-Traitor) resisted Bosnia, where no American
lives were lost,
but he kept his mouth shut as Bush pushed 2379 soldiers into the open,

Subject: rape and TV leading
One of the most deftly handled examples of this
is the BBC series "Cracker"
with Robbie Coltrane as Fitz and Geraldine Sommerville
as DS Jane Penhaligon.
Panhandle, Fitz's pet name for her, was raped
by DS Jimmy Beck (Lorcan Cranitch)
and the resulting fallout was fascinating to
One of the best detective shows EVER to air on
No, the best, hands down.
Steve, didn't see it.
I only watch "today's crappy, un-original"
American TV, however...
Someone mentioned Dr. Melfi (not the lead actress) on The Sopranos.
She was raped by a guy she could identify,
Little known fact:
Actress Lorraine Bracco was badly hurt in that simulated rape.
I think her shoulder was
seperated and she needed surgery to fix it.
and she knew if she told Tony...
Which brings up a morbid, but fascinating possibility:
If Carmella, Tony's wife, or Meadow, Tony's daughter, was raped, the
hunt for the bastard and
the eventual "application of justice" would be unlike anything that's
ever been on TV before.
I just wanted to get this in print before I forgot about it.
Don't you think a fitting way to close The Sopranos would be
for AJ to whack some dude?
Wouldn't that demonstrate the cycle of violence, the passing down of
the "traditions," good and bad?
I can still see the pain on Vito Corleone's face when Tom Hagen said,
"It was Michael who shot Sollozzo."
Like Vito, Tony never wanted "our thing"
for AJ, because he's a scared-bunny Democrat.
Those hardball Republican monsters would chew him up - but if AJ changes,
and hardens up,
The Sopranos could have one damn memorable goodbye next year.
David, if you want you can use that AJ idea :)
Iraq pumps 2,000,000 barrels a day,

Once the sick bastard invades, that's 5M barrels
times today's oil price which is

Subject: song writers
Bart, Give me a break. You said:
> "U2 is still rocking the world with new,
vibrant songs that really pump the adrenaline."
How many times have you heard someone humming,
let alone singing, a U2 song?
How many times have you heard a bar full of people
join in when a U2 song plays on a jukebox?
In 25 years, I could count the number of times
on the fingers of one hand and still have fingers left.
I don't deny the group is popular but their music
is anything but new or vibrant.
It's the same old stuff with the same old nasal
Ray in Gillespie
Ray, you don't like U2 because you're a stupid idiot
who's not smart enough to understand good music when you hear it!!!
If you don't like US, that's OK with me.
