"The press was lax early on when Bush led the
country into war, but It's been good since then." --
Carl Bernstein, out of touch like Dennis Miller, on why he's investigating
jay-walking while ignoring the global genocide Bush felonies, Link
Excerpt: On a global level, the world reads about trigger-happy
Blackwater "security contractors" mowing down civilians
in Baghdad, the U.S. military killing unarmed
people under loose "rules of engagement" in both Afghanistan and Iraq,
and the CIA "rendering" suspected Islamists to
secret prisons or to third-country dungeons where torture is practiced.
Inside the United States, too, a police-state
mentality is taking hold. After more than six years of having dissent against
Bush equated with disloyalty, police from Capitol
Hill to college campuses are treating vocal disagreement as grounds
for violently "taking down" citizens, while bouncers
at campaign rallies hustle away prospective hecklers and police
preemptively detain protesters or stick them
in faraway "free-speech zones." Andrew
Meyer got tasered.
In this version, Kerry can be heard talking while
Meyer is still in the room being tasered,
which makes Kerry a liar for saying all this
happened when he wasn't there.
Inside the Beltway, it seems there's little political
mileage in standing up for traditional American values,
such as the rule of law or even the Founders'
historic concept of inalienable rights for all mankind.

Excerpt: Bush again called Democrats "irresponsible" for
wanting to pass a children's health insurance program.
"Democrats in Congress have decided to pass a
bill they know will be vetoed because I hate kids," Bush said
of the measure that draws significant bipartisan
support. "Members of Congress are just trying to pass health
coverage for poor children purely to make a political
In the Democrat's response, Pennsylvania Gov.
Ed Rendell turned the tables on the president, saying that
if Bush doesn't sign the bill, 15 states will
have no funding left for the program by the end of the month.
Excerpts: Country music has thrived for years as the soundtrack
to redneck America, supplying the bloody Fascists with

In 2002, Keith had a huge hit with Courtesy

"You'll be sorry that you messed with the US

Worley's Have You Forgotten in 2003 justified
the Iraq invasion as a response to 9-11.
The military liked it so much he was presented
with a flag that had flown over the Pentagon.
Now Keith says he is a lifelong Democrat and has
claimed he never supported the war, while Worley

"Federal prosecutors have charged Norman Hsu

also got a political contribution from Hsu.
"You can have a meeting with a member of Congress

I'm still working on the idea of the Reality Revolution
as a secular version of the Church of Reality.
I've begun building a web site and looking for
ideas and/or people to take on the project and run with it.
I've installed Drupal on the site and I'm going
to rough out the basic ideas. Here's a link to my start.
Once I lay the foundation for this idea I'm looking
for the rest of you to take it over. So we need to have
some sort of an infrastructure for people to
collaborate and create the revolution. So looking for web talent
with design and Drupal experience and still looking
for more Reality Revolution artwork.
Hopefully people will be able to post their artwork
and the marketplace of ideas will produce some winners.
So - who has ideas? Let's talk about it here.
I received another letter from the DEA regarding
the religious use of Marijuana by the Church of Reality.
I had sent them a 60 day demand letter about
5 weeks ago and they responded assuring me that they are
working hard on our application. I replied with
a lot of questions that are basically setting them up for
a lawsuit in case they decide to stall. The 60
demand is a prelude to a lawsuit but I don't have to sue
at the end of 60 days. It just gets a step out
of the way. I'm trying to get DEA to reveal where they are
in the process and get them to either admit that
we qualify or to point out problems where we don't.
It is also possible that we qualify on a level
they never saw before and that they are trying to create policies
and procedures to deal with it. It is also possible
that political forces have intervened to delay our approval.
My letter is carefully written to try to figure
out where they are, or if they don't reply then will give us
an advantage in court due to their silence.

Excerpt: At the core of the rot destroying the American
Republic are the many false narratives that have
replaced the nation's real history. The Right
has proved adept at creating these alluring story lines
and selling them through a sophisticated media
apparatus, while the mainstream press goes silent
or plays along. In this guest essay, poet Phil
Rockstroh explores what false reality can do to a nation.
Bart, have you lost what little brains you were
Let me suggest that you take a lesson from Marc
Perkel, a frequent contributor to this site.
While I may disagree with some of his positions,
I find him to be logical, circumspect,
well-spoken (written) and civil in presenting
his points of view.
However, your comments when laced with numerous
F-bombs, undermines any attempts at serious discussion
and tends to add credence to the notion of low
double digit IQ, devoid of any semblence of humor.
Take a gauge of your reading audience and consider
making a few course corrections.
You can do better than this.

I heard Keith Olbermann attack Bush the other day and he used a bunch
of words that
I didn't recognize and couldn't spell so I can't look them up to find
out what he said.
(He said something like "Bush's meticulous malfeasence was manifest." I'd have to to go back to college to find out that that f-ing
Olbermann has his $500 words and I have my 50-cent words.
I can't use $500 words - I don't know what they mean.
So, here we've got the toughest son of a bitch

quart of non fat milk and a new fur coat for me on your way home?"
Well back in the day, we had a word for men like

Excerpt: On Wednesday, The New York Whore Times published
a photo album from the Auschwitz death camp,
showing carefree men and women of the SS singing
and sunbathing during time off from superintending mass murder.
The next day, the cable channels ran wall-to-wall
coverage of thousands of people who had descended on
a small Louisiana town, in the biggest civil
rights protest march seen in the US since the 1960s.
Remarkable events both, but with one glaring difference.
The crimes of the Nazis are a thing of the past,
those photos a ghastly reminder of the banality
of an evil that once was. But what drew the marchers to Jena
was proof that a century and a half after the
Civil War, and 40 years after the climax of the civil rights struggle,
race discrimination lives on in the US.

Bart, I think that it comes down to this; the
country is in a profound state of self inflicted denial.
Everybody knows how f*ed up things are, but they
fervently hope that this is going to pass
after the next election, and things will go right
back to normal.
The only thing that outrages them is when somebody
tries to make them look past their delusions.
Excerpt: The FBI, working with a crooked Alaska oil contractor,
secretly taped telephone calls with
Sen. Ted Stevens as part of a public corruption
sting, according to people close to the investigation.
The secret recordings suggest the Justice Department
was eyeing Stevens long before June, when the
Republican senator first publicly acknowledged
he was under scrutiny. At that time, it appeared Stevens
was a new focus in a case that had already ensnared
several state lawmakers.
Corrupt and wealthy, businessman Bill Allen agreed
to the taping last year after authorities confronted him
with evidence he had bribed Alaska lawmakers.
He pleaded guilty to bribery and is a key witness against
Alaska legislators. He also has told prosecutors
he paid his employees to renovate the senator's house.

Recently, a dude wrote to say he moved to Peru - I asked him why
Subject: My move to Lima
The most important reason was because I had been
working in an office full of delusional right wing nut
social retards for eight years, and I was sick
of it. I had to listen to their bullshit lies every day, but I was
forbidden from voicing my opinions. If
I said anything to counter their lies. an argument would always follow.
Naturally, I was the bad guy when that happened
because the arguments were always viewed as my fault.
I am now working for an American company doing
consulting for the mining industry, which is booming
these days. There are only a handful of
Americans working in the office, zero of which are right wing nuts.
It is an absolute pleasure to be able to have
an intelligent discussion about important issues, including politics,
without having to listen to a regurgitated neocon
Here in Peru, people understand the truth about
the Bush administration, and they cannot understand how
they have been allowed to stay in power.
For example, when I go to a bar, people want to talk to me
because I am an American. When I tell them
I hate Bush, I have a room full of friends!
This is not a time when Democrats can afford Harry
Reid He is pathetic beyond belief.
It is as if the Democrats are trying to out-stupid
Bush. If that is their goal they are succeeding!
I am calling on people to pressure the Democrats
to replace Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reed with real leaders.
We need people like John Murtha to lead the House
and Jim Webb or Russ Feingold to lead the Senate.
Until the Democrats select real leadership I'm
giving my money to MoveOn.org and bartcop.com.
I'm asking everyone who is against the war to
do the same.
Write MoveOn.org and ask them to run ads calling
for Democrats to change leadership.
If we can't make Democrats see the light then
we will make them feel the heat!

Heavy Metal goes AARP
We do not approve of the notion that rock-and-roll
bands can just go on into their golden years.
Heavy Metal bands should not be performing long
enough so that the "heavy" part relates more
to their body weights than their sound.

can update its songs for the upcoming reunion concert.

New song title: Elevator to Heaven
