My five day break from the page has produced benefits.

Sometimes, in the lava-hot, trench warfare we find ourselves in,
it's possible that a fella could speak in the excitement of the moment
and accidentally create enemies out of long-time friends.

I'm back from my semi-self-imposed hiatus, with - perhaps - a broader view.  

I figure by now, my opinion of this Demo contest is kinda well-known.
I can't wait one more f-ing day to scream, 
"OK, now let's go get those Bush-McCain bastards!!!"

...but that can't happen - until we have a nominee.

Oh, by the way, I can't begin to tell the tale of our New York '08 Trip Report
until the evidence lands on our front porch.   If I told you this tale without proof, you might not believe me. 
Plus, it'll probably be the longest trip report ever, so the extra days will let me do some writing.

Plus I need to see if I can get releases from the players in this story.

McCain's 'health care plan'

Next week, Senator McCain will visit various health care facilities and unveil his plans 
and solutions to help Americans improve access and affordability to good health care.

Will someone in the media point out that, as of yet, McCain refuses to publish a health care plan? 
Rather, his website lists a series of bullet points with vaguely worded goals, " Facilitate the 
development of national standards for measuring and recording treatments and outcomes." 

I doubt McCain understands such initiatives, but all the media must do is compare his "plan" 
with either Clinton's or Obama's. Each of their health care plans can be found on their website, 
are 25-30 page documents with integrated graphs, latest statistics, links to sources, etc. 
Best of all, their plans actually promise universal health care.

America's whore press keeps telling us McCain is ahead in the polls.
I don't believe that any more than I believe Bush is a Christian.

The war, the economy, four more years of going the wronf firection...
Granted, Democrats can be counted on to screw up everything,
but even they can't screw this up - can they?

Top Bush aides pushed for torture
 But Bush keeps lying "We don't torture!"


In his new book, Torture Team, Philippe Sands, professor of law at University College London, reveals that:

Senior Bush administration figures pushed through previously outlawed measures with the aid 
  of inexperienced military officials at Guantánamo.

Myers believes he was a victim of "intrigue" by top lawyers at the department of justice, the office of 
  Dick Cheney, and at Donald Rumsfeld's defence department.

The Guantánamo lawyers charged with devising interrogation techniques were inspired by the exploits 
  of Jack Bauer in the American TV series 24.

Myers wrongly believed interrogation techniques had been taken from the army's field manual.

The Fascist bastards are getting torture ideas from Jack Bauer?

You know how this will end - just like Abu Graib.
They'll hang some sargeants and privates out to dry while the big fish
insist that they never gave any orders that were unlawful.

"The results in Pennsylvania suggest that problems exist. A poll found that Clinton 
drew 63 percent of the white vote while Obama drew 90 percent of the black vote, 
mirroring a pattern in many other states. More strikingly, the poll found that 18 percent 
of Democrats said that race mattered to them in this contest - and just 63 percent of 
those voters said they would support Mr. Obama in a general election."
    -- Adam Nagourney, NYWTimes,   Link

Are Democrats saying America isn't ready for a Black president?

That's a question, not a racial slur.

The JT Collective is starting a revolution in music. We're gathering a group of artists 
in a unique community and building a brand we hope fans will come to appreciate 
as a great source of Indie music. Advances in digital recording and the marketplace of 
the world wide web offer us the ability to bring music directly to the consumer-fan. 
We no longer need the gatekeepers of the music industry, who line their pockets by 
exploiting the artist's gift and push us toward a lowest common denominator culture.

    * Connect. Join a community with other fans of independent music.
    * Listen. Individual artists have a vote in who is admitted into the collective, 
so you'll find artists who have proven themselves to their peers.
    * Support. The majority of music sales go right to the artists
- skip the middleman and know that you're supporting your favorite artists.

Frank/Paul Push for Legal Pot


The first federal marijuana decriminalization bill in 25 years was just introduced in Congress. 
Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) and Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) introduced H.R. 5843, the "Personal Use 
of Marijuana by Responsible Adults Act of 2008." Please urge your representative to support this important legislation. 

A deluge of messages from constituents will help members of Congress feel more confident in declaring 
their support for the bill. We don't expect the bill to become law just yet, but it will help us find out which 
members of Congress support marijuana decriminalization and which do not.  The more representatives 
who co-sponsor it, the more support we can show for marijuana law reform.

The more I know about him, I'm getting to like Ron Paul
He's a conservative who actually wants less government.

Subject: Clinton wins despite being outspent 

Clinton beat Obama by double digits even though she was outspent by over 3 to 1. 
He's good at raising money. She's good at winning elections against the odds. 
Seems to me that if Obama were Hillary's fund raiser, the combination would be unstoppable.

The Luckiest Woman in the World

Hillary Clinton is the luckiest woman in the world. Just when it looks like she'll have no chance 
to become the party's nominee, extraordinary good news comes her way, just at the last minute. 

Take, for example, the Pennsylvania Primary. For weeks we heard endlessly how she would need 
a double-digit victory margin in the Keystone State to offer a legitimate reason for her to stay in the race. 
And she achieved the ability to trumpet that double-digit margin by a single tenth of a percent.

The stunning turn of good fortune comes on the heels of Clinton's last make or break moment 
back in New Hampshire, when conventional wisdom had all but counted her out after her loss to 
Obama in the Iowa Caucus. But, there again, Clinton came through, despite both pre-election 
and exit poll numbers which all, almost uniformly, predicted she'd face a thumpin'.

Stupid me - I thought it was hard work and 18-hour days that gave her that win.
But maybe all it takes is some luck...

Bart, former President Bill Clinton made an appearance on talker Rush Limbaugh's show the day

to vote for Hillary Clinton as a means of sabotaging the Democratic nominating process.

OS, that never happened - your source is lying to you.
If Hillary is as bad as they say, why can't they just tell the truth?

Subject: You Have Frigging Lost It

I am so disappointed in you.
Oh, I'll still read, but I have lost so much respect for you.

Keith the Obama fan wrote in and asked you a few questions about Hillary.
You didn't really answer, which is fine.  I expect that from you these days.

How can Obama-ites be "sick to death" of Hillary
and still need someone to explain her to them?

You avoid the issues about her (lack of) experience.
Its part of the new you.

What could I possibly say that will make Obana fans say, "That's a good point?"

I watched a NCIS last night with Mrs Bart.
"Ducky" was doing an autopsy and his assistant helped.

If his assistant watched Ducky do, say, 1,000 autopsies over 8 years, do you think he'd 
be more qualified to take over for Ducky when he left or would a new fella, two years in town, 
who had never been in the building, probably do a better job?

But what is really sad is you put someone who is an Obama fan,
someone who isn't a Republican, in MONKEY MAIL.

Keith called me a "disgusting hypocritical fuck" and you want me to be nice to him?

Have we met?  Hi, my name's Bart.

I don't think people read this page to see me back down like a senate Democrat
when some junior grade ass screams at me.

No wonder you want Hillary to win.
Just like her, you are willing to throw shit at people who are on the same side.

Oh, and screaming"disgusting hypocritical fuck" is just a little conversation?
I think you're looking at this thru Obama-colored lenses.

Republicans are the monkeys.  Don't you remember?
What he hell happened to you?

Thanks for explaining to me what makes a monkey a monkey.

What you did is akin to Hillary claiming she and McCain have the experience
while Obama had a speech.  Disgusting.

Your credibility is waning, big time.

GKR, I take it you're an Obama fan.

You didn't get the Monkey Mail graphic because you didn't scream "fuck" at me.

See? I can be nice...

Trading arms for oil


Democrats in the U.S. Senate stepped up their attacks on OPEC oil producers on Thursday, 
threatening to block multibillion-dollar arms sales to suppliers such as Saudi Arabia if they fail 
to take action to tame record oil prices.

Schumer of New York, Dorgan of North Dakota and others have called on the White House to 
use its leverage to convince OPEC members to boost output or "risk Congress holding up arms deals 
with Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other OPEC members," according to the lawmakers.

"The Bush administration has refused to be tough with so-called OPEC allies and in fact continues 
to provide huge arms deals, despite the economic pains taxpayers are feeling," the senators stated.

Oil went to $120 in the last few days.
The crooked sons of bitches are raking in billions while Bush just fiddles.

This economy has to be strangling McCain, and it may also hurt Obama because people
remember what happened when Clinton "focused like a laser" on the economy in 1993.

He tripled the stock market and didn't lose a single soldier that he sent into battle,
yet millions of Democrats say they want no part of a repeat of peace and prosperity

And yes, I'm keeping a lower profile during this bloody civil war because each time

It's a reverse Bart's Law #2 - the harder I work, the less money I have,
so working less is the logical solution - wouldn't you agree?

McCain's Shadow


While Hillary and Obama have spent the week moving their battle from Pennsylvania to Indiana 
and Carolina, McCain has been fighting the dark overhang that Bush casts on his campaign.

The question of how a presidential nominee deals with a sitting president of his own party is one 
of the trickiest dilemmas in a campaign - a challenge that is underappreciated by most observers. 
It is no accident that in the elections since World War II when a candidate has tried to succeed the 
sitting president of his own party (1952, 1960, 1968, 1988 and 2000), that candidate has failed to 
capture the White House four out of five times. Elements of Nixon's inability to escape Eisenhower's 
leadership within his party, Humphrey's link to Johnson's unpopular war and Gore's refusal to use 
Bill Clinton all are present in the complex dance that McCain is undertaking vis-à-vis Bush in 2008. 

In other words, McCain can't swim with the 200 pound Bush anchor around his neck,
but the press wants a contest so they can sell more ads, so they pretend McCain is winning 
or breaking even with the only two people who could rescue us from the Bush Error.

You like 'toons?

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

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

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

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

Exxon made $10B
$11.66 billion in profit in 90 days

Gouging us to the tune ofHOT
$129 million profit per day


Gouging us to the tune of
$1,300 profit per second
because Bush started a fake war

...and what did it cost America,
besides $3 trillion of debt for your kids?


Some people celebrate Bush's bloody oil war...

Some don't.
x 4,037....4,050

We lost another 13 soldiers since last issue.

We have 4,050 dead soldiers.

Hey guys, we'd like to bring you home,
but Bush is busy counting his war profits


Exxon makes $108M$128M every day

That's why Bush
raped Iraq and
killed Saddam

How do we know for sure?
Iraq's oil wells have NO METERS!

 $200M-400M a day missing

Where's that money going?

Bush has killed more Americans than Osama.
