many of you religious types are "tempted" by homosexuality

Sitting in the Oval Office at 8.35am after a late
night of inauguration balls, he set about trying to
live up to the daunting expectations for his
presidency both at home and abroad.
He called together his generals to set new missions
for Iraq and Afghanistan and gathered his economics team
to review measures to confront the deepening
recession. He also telephoned world leaders to demonstrate that
there is a new president in charge, one with
a completely different agenda and different world outlook.
Smirk do his first day in illegitimate office?
He took the day off, proving he's even lazier than Red-Ink
Just wanted to weigh in on what went through my
mind seeing BO take the oath of office.
First it was goddamn relief that DimSun was finally
gone. Not sure if anyone else heard this but I was listening tuned
When Shrub and Mrs. Stepford took off in the
helicopter you could hear the people chanting, "NA NA NA NA, Hey Hey,
GOODBYE" for about 2 - 3 minutes. That was beautiful.
Neither Keith nor Rachel said anything but it was coming right through
their little tented area.
As the Chimp's chopper left for the last time, Wolf the Whore reported
that several thousand people were "waving goodbye" to the Chimp, but "not in a very friendly way." I'd
like to see a photo of thousands of people giving Bush the finger.
Almost 30 years ago I married a black woman.
I was told then that it wouldn't be so bad for her and I but that my children
Not that my family was thrilled that I was marrying
a woman of color but I was an adult and hell I was in love. We have
two beautiful children.
Most mixed children are beautiful. I don't
know why but I think it's just to piss off the racists. ha
My son had always thought that he would be the
first President of color because to tell you the truth Bart I also thought
we were at least
another 25 years from this day. To see
this day come so soon and to know that even though everybody said my children
I see now what I knew then. It is who you
are, not what color you are that matters. If your smart, if your
compassionate, if you really
seem to care about people, if you are taught
that everyone is equal and you treat people that way. Then others
will see you, not your
color or your accent, or your clothing.
We taught them not to see color, but a person.
It is the young who are going to have to clean
up the mess these a$$wipes put us in.
Thank go they for the most part don't see the
world as black and white.
They see shades of colors and that is great.
Bart I felt that I really did see things the right
way 30 years ago and other people just took a little time catching up.
So maybe my son will have to be the second President
Strange as it seems, Bush did more to advance Black people than maybe
any other man.
His Reign of Error was so horrible, even racist America said, "We
can't take four more years of that."
Of course, Oklahoma is so backwards, many Okies would rather see their
than allow a Black surgeon to save their lives, which is more insanity

Subject: The Inauguration
of Barack Obama
What a glorious day! Finally a President
with a soul.
And I flipped the bird at the tv as Bush
But the icing on the cake was thinking
about all those right wing nutcases who choked

his middle name at the swearing in ceremony.

Excerpt: Over much of the last century, the Bushes have
been serving the aims of a very narrow segment from within America's
wealthiest interests and families -- typically
through involvement in the most anti-New Deal investment banking circles,
in the creation of a civilian intelligence service
after World War II, and in some of that service's most secretive and
Through declassified documents and interviews,
I unearthed evidence that Poppy Bush had been working for the CIA
for two decades before he was named CIA director
in 1976. Time and again, Bush 41 and his allies have participated in
clandestine operations to force presidents to
do the bidding of oil and other resource-extraction interests, military
and financiers. Whenever a president showed
independence or sought reforms that threatened entrenched interests, this
helped to ensure that he was politically attacked
and neutralized, or even removed from office, through one means or another.

of people in the inauguration crown began to sing baseball's "lonesome loser's song" to the departing W

I think I can help you there, ol’ buddy.
Antiwar.com is a conservative libertarian stronghold
(think Ron Paul).
They agree w/ us on one issue and one issue only—getting/staying

After that, they’re just very vocal Republicans.

I'd say that's borderline false advertising.
Are they intentionally sending out "funny" signals?
If I ran gunsaregreat.com wouldn't everyone assume I was a right-wing handjob?
Now if we could figure out why those former I-love-Obama-to-death
sites are attacking him.
Maybe they never loved him - maybe they just
hated Hillary soooo much...
Excerpt: The Senate overwhelmingly approved Hillary as
secretary of State on Wednesday, after a one-day delay
forced by Republicunts who wanted to masturbate
for 24 hours to the thought of making Hillary wait.
The delay had the effect of denying Clinton a
confirmation vote on Inauguration Day, when six other
Cabinet members were approved. But Sen. John
Cornyn (R-MensRoomToeTapper), who sought the delay,
praised Clinton's abilities Wednesday (Fuck
you, Cornyn) and voted in favor. She was
confirmed 94 to 2.
The votes against her came from Sen. David Vitter
(R-Prostitutes), who favored further restrictions on
donations to the Clinton Global Initiative Foundation,
and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-Duncil), who cited concern
about her support for women's rights.
I get that Obama wants to change the tone of Washington, but how can
we unilaterally disarm?
The Republican sons of bitches have nothing but hate, so they can't
ever stop slinging it.
How long are Democrats going to stand there while Republicans pee on
Sorry - dumb question.
The gelding Democrats will watch the GOP pee on their shoes and then
"Thank you, may I have another?"
and then watch them pee on theior pants leg.

It was a surprise to a lot of people when Bush
failed to do mass pardons in the final days of his presidency.
This leaves the decision to President Obama.
Is Obama going to follow the law or is he going
to pardon the Bush administration by declining to enforce the law?
I think it would be a mistake for Obama to allow
Bush to break the law and get away with it. It would send a
message to future criminals that if you do something
really bad you might be too big to prosecute. That would be
the wrong message to send. I believe that much
of the lawlessness today started when Ford pardoned Nixon.
We are a nation of laws and if we don't prosecute
serious crime when done by political leaders
then it says that politicians are above the law.
San Bruno, CA.
With all respect, I think my good friend Marc is wrong on this.
I believe there's no law that says a president must make his pardons
Bush could've pardoned every crook in his administration (That's some

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said: "We're wondering
here whether or not Barack Obama in fact
is the president of the United States. They had
a kind of garbled oath. It's just conceivable that this will
end up going to the courts."
Yeah right dipshit, back at the supreme court
with justice roberts.
That's the kind of line I'd expect to hear
Get another line of work, Wallace, cuz the day
job doesn't look good on you.
> "I hope Obama Fails. Somebody's gotta
say it." -- Der vulgar
I say: What a douche bag.
Words fail when one tries to aptly and accurately
describe this waste of a human being.
Just shows what a true American patriot he is........wishing
failure to our country, our people,
our military, etc. because if Obama fails, America
fails. If there was a just and righteous God,
he would have already smitten this piece of trash
you call Pigboy.
If Obama is successful at getting the two parties
to begin hating each other less, the Pigboy
(and Hannity, O'Reilly, Beck etc) are out of
their jobs because hate is all they've got.

Now auto-customizing legend George Barris is
giving the Toyota Prius his distinctive, flamboyant touch.
Why hybrids? "I love the challenges of doing something
different," says Barris, who has redone about
six Priuses so far and is working on his latest
and greatest. Hybrids could use a sexier image, he figured.
The current Prius is so bulbous, Barris told
Toyota executives that it looked tubby and turtle-like.
There's no logical reason for the hybrids to look weird.
The auto makers just want them to stand out - but a Corvette-like body
would stand out too, right?
Almost every day, I have to get into my Control
Panel and turn my sound back on.
Why the fuck do I need to stop and take the time
do that every day?
Bill Gates (I-Asshat) has apparently told all
Windows computers to turn the sound off
every night so I have to spend time every day
of my life turning the goddamn sound back on.
Why can't they build a computer that works?
Let me guess: This doesn't happen to you, right?
Why does shit like this follow me around when it doesn't follow others
Sure, maybe the cats are turning the sound off every night by steeping
the F12 button and the Back button at the same time, but what are the
I had this problem with my Bartcop radio computer sound card, too.
I can't do a radio show without sound and the damn think kept shutting
off so my tech guy
(this is like 2-3 years ago) built a shortcut and put the link on my
desktop so I could turn
the damn sound on every day - but why should I have to fuck with that?
Can't they make a computer where the goddamn sound stays on?
Excerpt: Caroline Kennedy on Thursday withdrew her bid
to fill the Senate seat for New York.
Kennedy cited personal reasons in a brief statement.
First, that "personal reasons" is bullshit - who
does she think she's fooling?
Maybe that kind of tin-ear thinking is why her
bid failed in the first place.
Second, even *I* would've handled that better.
The way I remember it, Caroline let it be
known that she was interested in the post
That came off as "The
you can do for me is make me a senator."
I would've called some Steno Judy whore at the
NYW Times and fed her the "scoop"
that a "coalition of concerned Democrats"
had come to me and "begged me to run." Then I would've "needed some time to consider
it" before eventually saying "Yes, I'll serve."
How could a political family as experienced as
the Kennedys screw that up?
Bart, thanks for the last 8 years and many more
BTW I'm dying for the story on what's going on
John, I'm dying to tell it - I just need a break.
I'm swamped with doctors appointments, vet appointments, computer repairs,
cable TV repairs and I think I've broken my thumb so that adds a constant
level of pain that's
turning my moods a little sour, plus I lost my iPhone so that's another
$500 gone plus I'll have
to spend half a day at Best Buy getting a new one.
I can't just walk in, hand them a credit card and get a new phone.

and the bank bastards
are likely to cut me off and raise my interest rate to 30% and the

I was hoping 2009 would start out better than 2008, but the punches
just keep coming.
