           to shore up Social Security,    Link

 Well hell, if Mccain's going to raise your taxes,
 might as well vote for the "more butter" rock star

"My opponent is an honorable man, I admire his service
  to our country, but his vision of the future is more of the same.
  He's running for George Bush's third term."
       -- Obama, using his head, playing that point exactly right.

"You want more of the same?   Your candidate is John McCain.
  If you want to move forward, you have the option to vote for me."

 How is McCain going to win this?
 Who wants more of the policies that brought Bush to a 22% approval rating?

 Losing this year would be more unbelievable than losing in 2004.

 Obama - please stay our of condom suits!
 Don't get in ANY costumes until you take the oath.

Federal Judge Slaps Bush
Your thugs are not immune from the law


Bush's top advisers are not immune from congressional subpoenas, a federal judge ruled
Thursday in an unprecedented dispute between the two political branches. House Democrats
wet themselves in disbelief, rather than from fear of Cheney and Bush.

In his ruling, U.S. District Judge John Bates said there's no legal basis for Bush's argument and that
his former nanny Harriet Miers must appear before Congress. If she wants to refuse to testify, he said,
she must do so in person. The committee also has sought to force testimony from "Hands" Bolten.

The ruling is a blow to the Bush bastard's efforts to steal more power. Had Bush prevailed,
it would have dramatically weakened congressional power to investigate a lawless president.

The administration can appeal the ruling.

WEll then, we've gained nothing.
Bush will appeal this all the way to his partisan slugs on the Whore Supreme Court.

When they look at a case, they don't measure the legality or constitutionality of it.
They just ask Bush how he wants them to rule - and that's a crime.

So one again, it's the patty cake Democrats playing the blood sport Republicans.

How often does the rabbit eat the fox?

"Three former POWs told me McCain was ordered to turn (his release) down
  by his U.S. POW commander and he just followed orders.  McCain certainly
  doesn't appear to be a war hero by conventional standards, but rather a
  tough survivor whose handlers are overplaying the war hero card."'

Andy McCain's own 'Keating Five' Scandal
 Chip off the really old block - apple didn't fall far


The internet began buzzing with rumors and stories, mostly either questioning Silver State's financial
condition or drawing the inevitable comparison to his father's involvement twenty years ago in the
infamous "Keating 5" savings and loan scandal, where federal regulators seized Lincoln S&L.
Grandpa McCain was rebuked by the Senate Ethics Commission, who said he and four other
senators had tried to hold off a government investigation into the S&L's risky real estate deals.

There's more - Andrew McCain served on the bank's Audit Committee - his responsibilities
included, according to the company's bylaws, an understanding of finance and accounting:

Like father, like son.
Looks like the rotten apple doesn't fall far from the rotten apple tree.

If Poppy Bush's kid can be a big-time criminal, why can't McCain's?

Exxon Profits up 40%
 Meanwhile, millions of Americans lose everything


The Exxon Mobil bastards reported second-quarter earnings of $11.68 billion Thursday,
the biggest profits ever by any U.S. corporation, but they expected every higher profits.
The Exxon bastards made $2.22 a share, up from $10.26 billion, or $1.83 a share, a year ago.

The record-setting results were largely expected, given that no democrats are willing to
stand up to these gouging sons of bitches and the speculator-driven crude prices were
nearly double what they were a year ago. Natural gas prices were significantly higher too.

Let's see - my good Catholic math - they made $11.86B in 90 days, I think that makes
$131 million dollars in profit every day.


"It's the American dream,
  to screw all the little people..."

    "Do I look guilty?"


Stevens says it ain't so. But prosecutors say it is.

They say he received gifts worth more than $250,000 from an oil crook whose business Stevens promoted.
The senator, who surrenders today, vows to continue his reelection campaign as he fights the charges.

The prick who calls himself a "mean, miserable SOB" has made news in unhelpful ways in recent years,
pushing for money for a "Bridge to Nowhere" in Alaska and dubbing the Internet "a series of tubes."
But now a sprawling bribery scandal could cause him to lose his seat;
he has already had to give up his committee leadership posts.

They should make the oil goat a deal - no charges if he resigns his seat.
He's 84, nobody's going to put him behind bars so why bother with the charade?
But if he stays and fights, then he's choosing to do hard time if he loses.

You a gambler, Ted?

Subject: I moved to Joplin, 90 miles from Tulsa

I came down here from blue state country (Wis-Ill) and wife got good job in Joplin.
So I'm 1/2 mile from Kansas border and 20 min to Oaklahoma (never been, might not ever)

I HATE this humidity.

It gets humid up north too but not this much this long and the temps are higher.
Joplin sure is a little behind times than were I'm from. No recycling program to speak of.
You have to bring it to a place and sort it out. Like these people are going to do that.
A few do, not many.

Plus, there's more trash down here! Joplin anyway. I hate that shit.
No state parks close to here. Hour + away. Got spoiled in "gods country"- (ya right)

Lots more smoking down here too I've noticed.
Well lots more "sinnin" down here in the bible belt too, baptists freaks.

No getting used to this. Everyone stays inside.
The thing about the snow and ice - you can move it. The bitter cold- you can dress for it.
This rain we had, tornados, heat- humitity your just at its mercy. And we have lots of critters
and the fleas are horrible. Can't get rid them. Spent $1000 this year already.

The frontline .. all of it. Don't work anymore.
Wife is done with her school in less than 2 years and I'm going back to rural Wis.
I'll pay the high taxes.   I like winter, I'm a yankee.....

In the last week, I've had friends tell me Phoenix, Las Vegas and Houston
are all more comfortable places to live this summer than Tulsa.

...but since nobody wants to live here, the property values are fantastic!

In Tulsa, you can get a $2M California home for $200,000.

There are more slaves today
than ever before in human history

Barney Frank: Let's legalize pot!


Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) proposed to end federal penalties for less than 100 grams of marijuana.

Frank says that the current laws target marijuana users, place undue burdens on law enforcement,
punish ill Americans whose doctors have prescribed pot and unfairly affect African-Americans.

"The vast amount of human activity ought to be none of the government's business," Frank said.
"I don't think it is the government's business to tell you how to spend your leisure time."

House Resolution 5843 is co-sponsored by Ron Paul and six others.

They should have called me and asked for my opinion.
I would've told them to shoot for 25 grams, not 100.

100 grams is almost a quarter pound of marihuana.
Some handjob Republican will go find 100 grams of leafy dope and he'll roll 200 joints
out of that and he won't be able to stuff all 200 points in a gallon bag and they'll say,
"This is enough dope to get 20 Grateful Dead stadiums high."

100 grams of high quality pot would last most people a year.
(Please don't write and tell me you smoke an ounce per day.)

How do they manage to screw this up every time?

Tell me, do you but $1,000 worth of Coke or Pepsi at one time?
Do you ever buy a case of Jack Daniels for the weekend?
No, you don't need to because the store will always have more next time you go.

If pot was legal, you could buy a pack of 20 joints for $5 that should last for weeks.
20 joints would look like a pack of cigarettes, not enough dope to get 20 stadiums high.

How do they screw this up every time?

Subject: Obama can't win

Love your site Bart!   I visit it on a daily basis.

Obama will not win because:
(1) Of all the Hillary backers throughtout the country an awful lot of them
are going to sit on their hands and some out of spite will vote for McCain.

They might feel that way now, but once we get past the convention
I'm sure the majority of smart ones will vote Democrat like they're supposed to.
How can someone be a Democrat and vote for 4 more years of Bush?

(2) The very large majority of older, non-college educated whites are not
going to vote for a non-white candidate, especially women and union people.

Are you saying women and union people are traditionally bigots?
Seems to me that the only people who would vote against Obama
- or not vote at all - are people who say Bush hasn't done such a bad job
and that's what, 22% of the voting public?

(3) The younger voters are traditionally unreliable and the older ones
are always the largest voting bloc.

Old people need to realize the GOP bastards want to steal their Social Security
and they also want to kill Medicare and other benefits - so why reward them?

Has Tulsa become like the rest of the state?
I lived in Tulsa from 1977 to 1979 and it was very tolerable.
Be well, and continued success!

They call Tulsa, "The Paris of Oklahoma."
Tulsa is to Oklahoma what Austin is to Texas.

Hell, in Tulsa, gay bars only get torched every few years :)

Subject: My brush with 'greatness' by RDS

I was stoned and on my way via antique Harley to a Memorial Day weekend yard party near
Indiana University while on my way from my abode in the woods in Brown County when I came
around a curve and there, sitting at an abandoned gas station, was a bright red civilian version of
an Army Hummer pickup.

It was 1990 and civilian Hummers were about a dozen in number nationwide. Being a motorhead,
I turned off Hwy 46 into the old gas station and made a slow circle around the Hummer, back to front.
It had dark smoke tinted windows and I couldn't see anyone inside. There were lawn chairs and a
cooler in the short truck bed. As I rounded the front and started to circle it again on the driver's side,
the driver's door window came down and this guy with a big head, sqaure jaw and a cigar in his teeth
says "Zats a Nice Harley" with a German accent.

Before I realized who the dude was, I just said 'Nice Hummer'. Then I realized who the dude was
and he asks: "Do you know how vee get to Brown County State Park?" So I gave Arnold directions
and he said "Tank you" and Maria was leaning over his shoulder and says "Thank you". And I said
'You're welcome' and we went our seperate ways. This was about two hours after The 500 up in Indy
so they musta drove down after the race."

Note: RDS Has run into some interesting people in his life.
          I'll publish his "run ins" as long as he keeps sending them.

Subject: mocking purple hearts

Hey Bart - a question for all Republicans:
At your upcoming convention, will you once again be passing out "Purple Heart"
Band-Aids for John McCain as they did to mock John Kerry's legitimate war wounds?

Now we all know the answer to this one of course but I'd just like to remind them
what insensitive, hypocrites they all are. We Democrats - on the other hand - honor
ALL American soldiers no matter WHAT party they belong to.
Keep Hammerin',

Can we honor the troops and ridicule McCain? I think we should run
purple band aids down their f-ing throats and dare them to complain.

Once the dust settles and Obama is sworn in,
THEN we make a deal to play clean next time.

Facing questions, Edwards evades reporters


It was only three weeks ago that John Edwards was fielding media questions on his chances
of being Obama's VP a getting Cabinet position in an Obama administration.On Wednesday,
however, Edwards was eager to duck the press when the questions took a tabloid turn...

The story has prompted some buzzing in the blogosphere but little public response from Edwards.
At a July 23 speech, Edwards responded to a reporter's question by referring to it as 'tabloid trash.'"

John, you're not handling this very well.

If you're innocent, open your zipper and invite the press to blow you.
If you're guilty, hiding won't help because they're not going to let this go or forget.

You can't move forward until you deal with this.

Bush is stealing up to 6 million barrels of oil per day.
Since oil sells for $140 or more per barrel,
Bush is stealing $840,000,000 every day.

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,
It's the biggest theft in Earth's history.
