Shame on Us All
  by Robert Parry

 Excerpt: (Bart's edits)
History should record October 17, 2006, as the reverse of July 4, 1776.

From the noble American ideal of each human being possessing "unalienable rights,"
Bush effectively rescinded that concept by signing the Military Commissions Act of 2006.

On the surface, the law sets standards for [dealing with] supposed terrorists and "unlawful combatants,"
But the new law creates a parallel "star chamber" system of criminal justice for anyone, including a US
citizen, who is suspected of [attacking] the U.S. government or its allies anywhere on earth.

These tribunals could use secret evidence to prosecute a wide range of "disloyal" American citizens.
The procedures are similar to "star chambers," which have been employed historically by absolute
monarchs and totalitarian states.

The evil men who grabbed this unlimited power are not going to willingly give it up.
You don't steal unlimited power - then give it back.
You just don't.  is the most important site on the internet

Bush will Live in Infamy

George W. Bush will live in infamy for what he has done in Iraq.
161 dead. 83 dead. 53 dead. 16 tortured. 17 decapitated.

Shiite doctors dumping the bodies of Sunni patients they have murdered.
Burn marks. Executions. Torture chambers. Revenge killings.
Family members shot in front of their wives and children.
These are all the headlines from Iraq in just the last couple of days.

If this isn't a civil war, what in the world is?

Anywhere from 50,000-650,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed in the last three and half years.
Let that sink in for a second. That's a gigantic number. The human toll in Iraq has been unspeakable.

And none of it had to happen. This was a war of choice.
And it has been one of the worst choices ever made by a world leader.mid

Triangulating On Torture
  or Why I Hate the Clintons


I wrote yesterday about Hillary Clinton's waffling on the subject of torture
during her interview with the Daily News Editorial Board.

It was the usual hit-job, hack-job, handjob you'd expect from a Clinton hater.
This writer has no interest in making a point, he just wants to try to be cute.
I f-ing hate that.

Today, a laudatory op-ed  in the LA Times by torture advocate Alan Dershowitz
points out that Bill's also equivocating on the subject.

No, that's not what happened and we both know it.

Dershowitz isn't God, he's just a legal scholar with an opinion.
If he thinks Clinton is equivocating, then that's his opinion.
If I say you're a terrible writer and a no-class whore - does that make it true?

That's a great example of taking an opinion and assigning facts status to it
hoping the reader will be dumb enough to miss the clumsy bait-and-switch.
People often do that when they're unable to win the argument with logic.

Apparently, the Clintons have decided that torture makes a great triangulation topic.

It's impossible to win with a Clinton hater.
If both Clintons agree, "they made a calculating political decision to agree."
If they have different opinions, "they're scheming, triangulating whores."
Can't with with Clinton haters - or Jew haters - or gay haters - the list is endless.

Sidebar of dynamite:
Maybe they're smart enough and brave enough to realize the subject of torture must be
addressed, and they think that the subject ought to be dealt with in a more honest way
than McCain blowing Bush for political gain.

IF, someday, an unpopular decision needs to be made, should we wait until then?
And make that ugly decision injured, in a mad panic, with no time to reflect on it?

Or should we talk about it calmly, in the open?
(Just kidding - we can't have that conversation.)

Both of them carve out an impossibly nuanced stand against the current bill, but in favor
of torture under certain circumstances - circumstances that don't occur in real life.

Well, then, if this writer, RJ Eskow from says
the unthinkable can't happen, then we're all safe.  Whew!

Once RJ Eskow gives us his Nancy Grace guarantee that we're all safe,
let's not spend any more money on Defense, or border security or policemen.
Why face an ugly reality when you can stick your head in the sand, instead?

Besides, if one says they might allow limited torture in circumstances that don't occur
- what's the problem?

Oh, that's right.

RJ Eskow didn't write that to make a valid political point.
He wrote that trying to be cute with the Clintons.
I f-ing hate that.

Subject: Pickles

Bart, yesterday you quoted Chris Shays (R-panic) saying,

> "Dennis Hastert didn't kill anybody."

I wish someone had responded "No, but Laura Bush did."

"The Democrats and the American media have
  agreed not to mention my depraved indifference."

Pickles ran a stop sign, killed a man and the cops failed to test her for alcohol.
She killed the most popular boy in school, her old botfriend,
and the cops never bothered to test her?

It's a good thing she wasn't black, and driving with a cracked taillight.

Corrupt John Doolittle (R-Crook)

On Saturday, the WaHoPo confirmed that John Doolittle (R-Crook) is under investigation
for sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g  with Jack Abramoff - something he denied for months.

"John Doolittle is good people.
 He always endorsed my checks with a Thank You'."

Doolittle admitted that he has paid two different Washington criminal defense lawyers
more than $50,000 since July.  John Doolittle has been lying about the investigation.

This Doonothing slug is being slapped around by Lt. Col. Charlie Brown, (US Air Force, Ret)
one of a number of veterans who are fighting back against 21st Century Bush Family Facsism.

Worse yet, Doolittle is "tight" with the GOP child-molester crowd.

      "I swear to help Hastert cover up sex scandals!"

If you vote in California's 4th District, say no to the crooked Republican
and elect an honest Democrat who fought for his country - Charlie Brown.

"John Doolittle has made a mockery of the public trust - using his office
  to launch a relentless pursuit of personal riches and extra perks, and

Judge Vacates Conviction of Ken Lay
 His family gets to keep all those stolen millions

           "Can I come out of hiding now?"

A federal judge Tuesday vacated the conviction of Kennyboy Lay, wiping out
a jury's verdict that he committed fraud and conspiracy in one of the biggest
corporate scandals of Bush allies and contributors in U.S. history.

Lay was convicted of 10 counts of fraud, conspiracy and lying to banks in two separate
cases on May 25. Enron's collapse in 2001 wiped out thousands of jobs, more than
$60 billion in market value and more than $2 billion in pension plans.

Lay went missing in July while vacationing with his wife in Aspen, Colo.

Subject: The Day America Died

Tuesday marked the end of what we once called America. 
Bush signed into law a bill that gives Bush the powers of Adolf Hitler. 

Bush can now torture people in secret torture prisons that are similar 
to the beginnings of Germany's concentration camps. We are our own enemy. 

History will mark October 17th as the day that America died. 
This will cause the people of the world to hate America 
because it is causing Americans to hate America.

Subject: The Quaint Little Experiment

It really was a radical departure from the cultural norm.
This ideal of a government of the people, from the people and by the people.
Where rule of law was a sacred right that superseded all other things.
Not with the stroke of a sword, but a pen, a morally bereft, intellectually deficient
lesser son of greater men, and it all went away.

Not with an explosion. Not with a bang.
Not even with a collective whimper.
Fifteen dissenters with little picket signs was the sum total of the collective protest.

Along with my fellow apathetic Americans I toast the President's signing of
the Military Commissions Act of 2006, and offer a moment of silence for the
brief and shining example that was briefly America.

We have reaped what we sowed.
God bless George W. Bush in whose hands our lives now rest.

Why We Still Fight
  by William S. Lind


At least 32 American troops have been killed in Iraq this month. About 300 have been wounded.
The "Battle for Baghdad" is going nowhere. A Marine friend just back from Ramadi said to me,
"It didn't get any better while I was there, and it's not going to get better."  Virtually everyone in
Washington, except the people in the White House, knows that is true for all of Iraq.

Actually, I think the White House knows it too. Why then does it insist on "staying the course"
at a casualty rate of more than one thousand Americans per month? 

The answer is breathtaking in its cynicism: 
so the retreat from Iraq happens on the next President's watch. 
That is why we still fight.

Yep, it's now all about George.
Anyone who thinks that is too low, too mean, too despicable even for this bunch
does not understand the meaning of the adjective "Rovian."

Would they let thousands more young Americans get killed or wounded
just so George W. does not have to face the consequences of his own folly?

In a heartbeat.

I agree 100%.
Bush will stay the course for two more years, we'll have 6000 dead,
but Der Monkey will always "get" to say, "I stayed the course."

He doesn't care how many thousands of soldiers die.
He doesn't care how many hundreds of billions of dollars we throw away.

He's stealing hundreds of millions of dollars per day,
and he has been doing that for over 1,000 days, so what does he care?

Subject: Man of the Year movie - I'm glad they made it


I took the wife and daughter to see this film and I have to say, I'm glad that they made it.
Yes, I could have done without the stale Monica references, but the two that stood out
the most seemed to be pointing out how the issue should have been handled at the time.
Do you recall Darrel Hammond's SNL opener right after the impeachment, when he
(as Clinton) told Congress to suck it?  Along those lines.

Is U.S. Worsening Iraq Civil War?
  by Ivan Eland

One of the internal contradictions in George W. Bush's Iraq War policy has been the risk that
arming and training a Shiite-dominated military would encourage it to violently subjugate the
rival Sunni minority, a development that could end up looking a lot like genocide. In this essay,
Ivan Eland argues that it may be time for the U.S. to back away from Shiite-run security forces

I have an idea - why don't they take the Iraqis they're training and their families to Kuwait or Qatar
and train them in a place that's safe?  Then, once they're trained, they'll be better able to take care of
themselves and their families AND they have a guarantee they won't die during training.

It's so easy - why don't they train them in the simple and safe way?  is the most important site on the internet

 Iraq pumped 3.5M barrels daily before Bush invaded
 and then they got their 2003 Halliburton upgrade

Bush's oil gouge, which is going to $100 a barrel
makes $350,000,000 Bush will steal every day.

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

stealing  $350,000,000 every day.

It's the biggest theft in Earth's history.

Bush's "Bring 'em on" death taunt is up to...

2771....2782 American victims

Bush killed  11  more soldiers yesterday.

 "Bush's war costs $2 billion a week."
   -- so by all means, stay the course?

Bush has killed more
Americans than Osama.

Paris Hilton grabs wrong car keys
 Swear to Koresh, that made the damn news

Paris screamed for someone to bring out her the key to her SLR. 
Ms. Hilton went to grab the keys herself. 
Unfortunately the keys she returned with were for her Bentley.

Let me ask you:
If you grabbed the wrong car keys, and some media handjob thought that was news,
would that make you a bad person, worthy of ridicule, hatred and scorn?

Ben Affleck was on Jon Stewart lately, saying during that "Benifer" horseshit, he would
get up in the middle of the night in his undewrwear and pop a burrito in the microwave and 
some media handjob camped out on his front lawn with a satellite truck would peep in and 
see him and call that "scoop" in to the big boys back at the office.

Why is that news?

Subject: Feingold/Clark


My man Russ Feingold is THE ONLY candidate that can combat  these republic-ant's.  

That's an assertion, not a fact.

He can not/will not be swift boated by the right.  

Another assertion.

His votes will stand up to any smear campaign they throw at him.  

That's three in  row.

As much as I would like to see another Clinton in office, Hillary has to explain some votes.  

You mean her too-far-to-the-left voting record?

She is too moderate, which today means right of center.  

To a Feingold backer, it probably seems that way.
How will the voters see it?

Wesley Clark will be the much needed military mind on the ticket. 

True, but She didn't get on the Armed Services Committee by accident.
Plus she has eight years experience in the White House.

Jump on the bandwagon Bart-Man or provide good reasons why 
Hillary would be a better choice than Feingold/Clark in 2008

The bad news - Casa de Bart has flooded.

The good news - the damage is limited to the hall.

The bad news - they say we can have the hall back after "5-6 days of hell."

More bad news - the hall is the only access to the studio/computer room
                             which means I'll have to go semi-dark for 5-6 days.

The good news - they only work 8 hours a day, so I'll have access to the 
                            studio/computer room for a few hours a day.  I can answer
                            some e-mail and handle t-shirt orders if any come in.
More bad news - with the election coming, I'd hate to shut down before Nov 7.

More bad news - the mold factor makes waiting difficult, but not impossible.

The good news - I'm getting 3-4 estimates, maybe the others will have better news.

More bad news - crying won't help me, praying won't do me no good.
The good news - It's not Katrina, and Bush isn't my only chance to survive.

 Is Katie Hubbard a prisoner?

Have you noticed that whenever you see a picture of Katie Hubbard, 
there is a Scientologist "little person" physically restraining her?

Are they afraid she might break free and speak with a reporter?

Run, Katie, run!


Find a recent picture of Katie where she is not being physically restrained.

"Recent" is anything after Ron Hubbard's invitro was born.

She must be outside, where she has a chance to break free.
    In other words, pics in a car or elevator don't count.

It must be a "candid" picture, not a photoshoot or magazine cover.
