  I know what value the U.S. government assigns to a soldier's life: I've seen the check.

Bush's Islamist Bomb 
 by Ivan Eland

The Bush administration has failed to capture or kill Osama or to win the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. 
Now, the administration has also missed the chance to maintain a stable nuclear-armed Pakistan.

Like the U.S. policy toward the Shah's Iran in the 1960s and 1970s, the Bush administration, despite a 
rhetorical commitment to spread democracy around the world, has put all of its eggs in the basket of an 
autocrat unlikely to survive - in this case, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf.

Although Musharraf has used the U.S. war on terror to play the United States like a fiddle, Bush believes 
there is no better alternative. Unfortunately, backing Musharraf could create a nuclear-armed Pakistan 
controlled by radical Islamists.

Unfortunately, Pakistan probably has already been "lost"... 

I wish they didn't know what they were talking about at
But I'm afraid they do...

Thank God for George W. Bush

The bumper sticker reads: "Bush: Thank God!" It adorns the back end of an enormous SUV. 
Bush and God conflated in a single three-word sentiment. Though some might see that sticker 
as blasphemous, it echoes the words that Rudy spoke to Bernard Kerik amid the ash on 9-11.

Let us pray with them...

Thank you, God, for the rectitude you have bestowed upon our leader, George W. Bush, 
and for keeping him from hearing all the voices that might cause him doubt. Thank you for 
his lack of curiosity, and thank you for his disinclination to read newspapers, or to consult 
any sources that might trouble his God-given resolve.

Subject: Clinton Obama


I'm sure all the Obama supporters who visit your site are just thrilled that 
you've declared peace and offered Obama the VP spot under Hillary.  

...It's good that the young guy can learn from the master and his wife.

In as much as you've become completely unhinged, 

ha ha
You're saying they didn't act in concert?
Boy, I'd love to be against you in court, sometime.
(BTW, you don't do any work for Sears, do you?).

I've determined to grant you some slack before offering Hillary the VP spot under John Edwards 
(and don't bitch at me, or I'll offer it to Obama).  All of the right wing anti-Hillary books are hitting 
the shelves, so you're likely going to be fairly busy for awhile.

Have you heard those idiotic rumors?
That Bill promised she could be president after him?

Unless one of them told that to somebody, it's just a ridiculous guess.
Bill's not in a position to "give" Hillary the presidency. You'd have to be
   a former CIA director with $200 million in oil money to pull that off.
Bernstein (R-Whore) spent eight years on that book and his "big blockbuster" 
   is that Hillary is sooooo ambitious that she wants to be president?

I'd point out, however, that Edwards criticized the Democrat capitulation as soon as it happened, 
as did Al Gore (who still says he isn't running).  However, Obama and Hillary waited to be sure 
the capitulation was going to pass before they voted against it.

The Deadly John Wayne Myth


According to Gary Wills' book "John Wayne's America," the man who portrayed the archetypal, 
battle-hardened Marine, Sgt. Stryker, in 1949's "The Sands of Iwo Jima," actually avoided the draft 
during WWII. Wills contends that the Duke did not reply to letters from the Selective Service system, 
and applied for deferments. Apparently, Wayne got his big break during the struggle against fascism 
when many Hollywood action heroes like Tyrone Power enlisted and shipped out overseas. 

With much of the competition away in the Pacific and European theaters, Wayne was able to storm 
movie theaters to solidify his stardom. While Jimmy Stewart and his fellow celebrity servicemen were
real action heroes, Wayne was a "Lights! Cameras! Action!" hero who merely played the part in the 
safety of Tinseltown's home front and back lot.

Why are we here? 
 A soldier asks a question


My name is Donald Hudson Jr. I have been serving our country's military actively for the last three years. 
I am currently deployed to Baghdad where I have been for the last four and a half months. I came here as 
part of the so called "troop surge", but so far it has effectively done nothing to quell insurgent violence. I have 
seen the rise in violence between the Sunni and Shiite. This country is in the middle of a civil war that has been 
going on since the seventh century. Why are we here when this country still to date does not want us here? 
Why does Bush's personal agenda consume him so much, that he can not pay attention to what is really going on here?

The 2nd Anniversary of  Cheney's 'Last Throes' prediction 

Subject: Cindy Sheehan

Democrats have the anti-war movement and Cindy Sheehan to thank for taking congress back.
The Democrats stabbed us in the back when the voted to give Bush incorporated another blank check
to continue the ethnic cleansing and armed robbery in Iraq.

Cindy was right to "call bullshit" when the Democrats sold out... again
Cindy should run for congress as an independent.

Subject: religion


I believe in God but not organized religion and I don't think of God as an invisible cloud being. 
I understand why you say the things you do about religion and those who like having an intermediary 
feed it to them without honest critical thinking. Those folks really need to look at all of the horrible things 
that have been done in the name of God and religion by those who find money and power by twisting 
and selling it to those who don't care to think for themselves. 

They need to take responsibility and own up to the fact that they are hurting the country and the world 
as much as any evil dictator when they condone unnecessary pre-emptive war, torture, erosion of our 
God given rights and blindly trust those with way too much power who say God told them such & such 
and he wants you to know so & so. They are the dangerous people to our world - not you. 
I'd rather hear uncensored honest thought out arguments from you than calculated pabulum for the masses.

I come here and respect you because I like the honest no holds barred intelligent debate 
even when I disagree with you. That's what this country is tragically lacking.

Thank you for providing some of that.

GOP-style Justice 



In case after case, a U.S. attorney was fired after failing to pursue investigations that would have hurt 
Democrats and helped Republicans. Goodling said she considered politics even for jobs that are supposed 
to be exempt from such considerations. Where do you think she got the idea that was appropriate? 
From the back of a cereal box? When he testified on Capitol Hill, Ashcroft protege James Comey said 
this last revelation was the worst thing he had heard. "You just cannot do that," he said. "It deprives the 
department of its lifeblood, which is the ability to stand up and have juries of all stripes believe what you say, 
and have sheriffs and judges and jailers -- the people we deal with -- trust the Department of Justice." 
You should trust this Department of Justice. If you can't, lower your standards until you can.

Subject: WTC 9-11

As I recall, a tape of the first plane hitting the WTC, taken by a tourist, 
turned up a little later.  Doesn't mean Bush is not a liar, though.

A French film crew was following firemen around New York on 9-11.
One of their cameramen caught the first plane hitting the towers, 
but that footage wasn't broadcast until the next day.

5 Brits kidnapped; 10 GIs die in Iraq 


Gunmen in police uniforms and driving vehicles used by security forces kidnapped five Britons 
from an Iraqi Finance Ministry office Tuesday, and rumor says the Shiite Army was suspected. 

Compounding the fresh evidence of chaos in Iraq, the U.S. military announced that a total of 10 
American soldiers were killed in roadside bombings and a helicopter crash on Memorial Day, 
making May - at 113 fatalities - the third deadliest month of the war.

How can we win this war if we can't control our uniforms and vehicles?
Apparently our "allies" are working for the enemy.

Attributing the quotation dripping with stupidity to "every Christian in America" is beneath you, Bart.

Q.:Since no Justice Department official has been forthcoming, 
     who drew up the list of the attorneys -- the prosecutors to be fired?

Stanzel:Well, I think, Helen, that's a subject that's been covered 
              exhaustively on hearings on the Hill...

Q.: Tell me, I'm sorry, I have not read who...

Stanzel: I will allow the Justice Department to help you out with that question because...

Q.: But I'm telling you they're not saying.

Stanzel:They've testified hours and hours and hours about this very issue.

Q.: Did they say who drew up the list?

Stanzel: Well, I think it's been testified to the fact that Kyle Sampson was working 
               on the process, and I think they testified to that fact.

Q.: Did he think of the names, himself?

Stanzel:  I think he's spoken at length about the review process that was underway.

Q.: Don't stall, just tell me. Who drew up...

Stanzel: I  will refer you to the Department of Justice, Helen.

Q.: Well, that's another dodge.

Subject: Bush's land snatch in Paraquay 

Bart, the Cuban news service reports that George Bush has purchased 98,840 acres in Paraguay 
near the Bolivian/Brazilian border.
Can you please bring this up on your site for discussion?  It would be great to see whether anyone else
could confirm this to be true, as well as get some Bartcop reader's response to why Bush would WANT 
to purchase such a large piece of land in Paraguay!
Could it be he's "leaving the scene of the crime" and will need to be far, far away 
when the American people wake up that we've been had and the Nazis are already here?!!!
 Kathleen W

I think it's because the Kuwaitis can't wire hundreds of billions of dollars to an American bank 
account with with Bush's name on it without causing a tsunami of IRS problems.

But Bush can give Paraguay's president a billion dollars to look the other way.

Corn replacing agave 


Mexican farmers are setting ablaze fields of blue agave, the cactus-like plant used to make the 
fiery spirit tequila, and resowing the land with corn as soaring U.S. ethanol demand pushes up prices.

The switch to corn will contribute to an expected scarcity of agave in coming years, with officials predicting 
that farmers will plant between 25 percent and 35 percent less agave this year to turn the land over to corn.

Coburn for president?

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Jesus Twin) is mulling an entry into the Republican presidential primary. 
Coburn, a totally insane senator from Oklahoma, is getting encouragement from a small group 
of wealthy businessmen and philanthropists in the Oklahoma-Kansas-Texas region of the country.

"He's all about faith, lower taxes, and staying the course in Iraq," says an adviser.

Subject: the truth about Obama 


What you wrote about Hillary and Obama in regards to the vote in the Senate was spot on
--maybe the best thing to appear on the site in a while.
Yeah, Obama is a politician who is ambitious--so what?  Don't you need that to get INTO politics 
and INTO higher office?  Politics isn't a kids' game; it's bare-knuckle brawling, and sadly, the nutjobs 
on the Right and in the Republican party understand it better than us liberals and those on the far Left.  
Only Bill Clinton and Howard Dean (and yes, Hillary) seem to understand this. 

So let them team up--what are the nay-sayers going to do, vote for Nader (and still lose, yet claim "victory")?  
It's still sad that despite voting against this horror of a bill Hillary and Obama are STILL getting it from liberals 
because their votes were "calculated".  Not to mention that over 140 Dems in the house voted against it too.  
Jesus.  You cannot please some people, I swear....

One more thing...the Left's fave Repug, Hagel, voted FOR this bill.  
Where are his supporters on the Left now?  What do they have to say?
Thanks for letting me rant, Bart.  Keep swinging that hammer.

Subject: everything


1) On the Dems caving. It has been put forward that the Dems have done this to keep the war going 
and to destroy the GOPigs by in '08 by showing that the war is not winable (sp). I sure hope not. 
That would mean that the Dems don't care about getting us out of Iraq.

I think they just wanted to go on vacation.
I'll bet the soldiers in July's 115 degree Baghdad heat would like a vacation, too

2) I don't want to see another Bush or Clinton as President. Hillary is fine, 
but I detest political dynasties of any kind. We need new blood.

'New blood' isn't on the ballot.

3) There is no "invisible cloud being" that created us. 
Do you really think a benevolent being would let his creations trash a planet?


4) On Bush lying. When has he ever told the public the truth?

He promised to change the direction America was going under Clinton.

5) Cindy has lost a kid to the murderous bastard. She's not a politician. Give her some slack.

I thought my comments were restrained and diplomatic.

6) Kill your TV. It's all shit anyway.

The TV is a communication device, like your computer or the mail.
Just curious - are books and movies shit, too?

7) Screw Lindsay Lohan. She's a punk actor.

Actually, she breaks the rule.
Beautiful women famously can't act, but Lindsay is and can.

8) Is Bixby Corn genetically modified?

I'm sure it is.
They keep coming up with new kinds of corn.

Tequilafest San Francisco?

We're finalizing the details this week.
We're shooting for the weekend of July 14th, still looking for that venue.

Can we rent a boat for this party?

The haunted San Fran hotels are very proud of their "No Party!" policies
and they promise me they're strictly enforced.

I mean, why would anybody want to party in San Francisco?

Marc Perkel and Jerry at TheBeatMuseum are keeping their eyes open for a place, too.

How about you, millionaire reader with the big, fancy mansion with a view of the bay?
Can we trash I mean, could we party at your place if we clean up good?

Republican Adultery Wars 
Gingrich's sins were worse than mine
 by Tom DeLay (R-Squirrel)

"I'm nuts about cheating on my wife..."

"I don't think that Newt could set a high moral standard, a high moral tone, during that moment," DeLay said.

"You can't do that if you're keeping secrets about your own adulterous affairs." He added that the impeachment 
trial was another of his "proudest moments." The difference between his own adultery and Gingrich's, he said, 
"is that I was no longer committing adultery by that time, the impeachment trial. There's a big difference." 
He added, "Also, I had returned to Christ and repented my sins by that time."

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

Bush is stealing $220,000,000every day.

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

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

Exxon made $10B profit in 90 days
 $100M a day - all profit - because Bush started a fake war


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

3,422....3471   American victims

That's fucked up.
49 more families destroyed by Bush greed in one week.

51 if you count the families of the kidnapped & tortured.

...and how much did BIG OIL make yesterday?
Exxon makes $108M - every day

Bush can live with that,
because Iraq's oil wells have no meters
and his front company is moving to Dubai.

 $100M a day,
$200M a day,
$300M a day - where's that money going?

Bush has killed more Americans than Osama.

Who's Lying Now? 


It became clear shortly after 9/11 - Bush was going to launch a preemptive-preventive-absolutely-witless war 
against Iraq, without provocation, and nothing -- no diplomacy, no international condemnation, no domestic 
'wise men' -- was going to stop it. The administration was dead set on war, and the intelligence community
-- which Bush and others now blame for having dropped the ball -- was merely a source of cherry-picked 
goodies amid what we now know were reams of alarms.

"Months before the invasion of Iraq," the WaHoPo reported Saturday, "U.S. intelligence agencies predicted that 
it would be likely to spark violent sectarian divides and provide al-Qaeda with new opportunities in Iraq and 
Afghanistan.... Analysts warned that war in Iraq also could provoke Iran to assert its regional influence and 
'probably would result in a surge of political Islam and increased funding for terrorist groups' in the Muslim world."

I STILL Stand with Cindy 



She lay down, prone, by the headstone. The young barefoot woman, with a pretty black-and-white 
sundress and brown hair pulled back neatly, had her face down to what looked like an inch or so 
from the ground - ground over which the grass had not yet grown to cover. Mary McHugh probably 
didn't notice that her picture was being taken. She was likely too busy thinking about, praying for, 
and crying over, the soldier laid to rest six feet below her. He was her fiancé, Sgt. James J. Regan, 
buried in Arlington National Cemetery - where the dead from Iraq and Afghanistan are interred. 
You can't see her face in the photo, but you can feel her agony. 

The mere glimpse of it still makes my eyes well up with tears. 

And that's all these past several Memorial Days have been about: tears - tears for nothing. 
A harsh realization that I'm sure Cindy Sheehan just got tired of confronting.

She closes by saying, "We will never really understand or figure out life completely.

Hmmm, that sounds like a potential suicide threat.
I hope somebody is watching her.
