"This new format of presenting Oscars... They
had these five actors come out there, and each one addressed one of the nominees.
It was sick! There was so little humility."

Excerpt: Bush's first stop after leaving the White House
last month was Midland, where thousands of ignorant handjobs
cheered him in the town square as if he were
some kind of hero. But his return to Dallas was far more subdued.
Bush is one of the most unpopular presidents in
U.S. history. Critics say that's why he has yet to get a publishing deal
on the pack of self-serving lies he's said to
already have begun writing. And, after the shoe-throwing incident in Iraq,
he has not yet made plans to travel any farther
than Canada. Friends say Bush can't process rejection so he's
But Dallas has changed some from the solidly
Republican stronghold the Bushes may recall.
True, "Welcome Home, George and Pickles" yard
signs dotted Preston Hollow for weeks before the Bushes moved in.
And Texas remains a solidly red state.
But Dallas County voters, who gave Bush a narrow victory in '04, swung
Democrats last November. In Dallas
County, Obama got 57 percent to McCain's 42 percent.
"People in South Carolina are hurting. Unemployment rates are high and
We are running out of money in the unemployment bank - we need money for
the people that need help. And Iím one of them, but I canít get no help."
Gov Mark Sanford:
"My prayers are going to be with you because it sounds like you're in an
awfully tough spot." Link
Have you ever heard, "Go fuck yourself"
sound so pretty?
This reminds me of Bush and Katrina.
"We won't do anything to help, but we'll pray
Funny, when Lehman Brothers and WaMu and A.G.I. and Citi Bank
got in trouble,
the Republicans came to the rescue with trillions of dollars.
But if it's just people who need help, they offer to f-ing pray
Excerpt: I can hardly believe what I'm watching. Chris
Matthews is flat-out critical of Obama on the economic front.
He mentions an earlier conversation with Jim
Cramer knocking Obama for several economic decisions - that the
stimulus bill needed more real infrastructure
and less pork, that the housing bill isn't inspiring confidence and doesn't
look like it will work, and that no one has faith
in Tim Geithner's solution for the banks.
Howard Fineman says "Tim Geithner hasn't inspired
any confidence anywhere, as far as I can tell."
Matthews: "He seems like Barney Fife to me."
Eugene Robinson: "I actually referred to him as
Doogie Howser, Treasury Secretary, and I think it's a little unfair." Much
Matthews: "I thought 8,000 was the floor, and
it looks like 6,000 is the floor. People are angry, I'm getting angry."
Surely Obama is smart enough to know that the whores who lied to get
him elected ... were lying whores.
Their loyalties will turn each time the wind blows and that Matthews
whore is among the worst of them.
Bart, some friends of mine saw that Tulsa show
and just loved it.
Personally, most people I know -- including most
rock musicians -- have a deep
abiding love and respect for traditional American
music forms, including country.
Too bad your personal bias caused you to dislike
what was almost certainly an awesome show.

Maybe I was too sober...
Saw Crissie in early Feb in Ann Arbor.
The touch of country made the show even more
fun than when we used to rock with them in the 80's.
It was great to see Chrissee H still rockin and
adding some twang to her new shows.
A little change is good for longevity. As long
as one doesn't totally wimp out like that prancing fruitcake

THEY want, like the WHO have been doing since 1961.

Michael Steele: No, no no. What would we do

Excerpt: A California legislator today proposed making
the state the first to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.
The legislation would allow people 21 and older
to grow, buy, sell and possess pot. It would be sold, regulated
and taxed similar to alcohol. The state would
collect $50 an ounce from sellers, and growers, too, would be taxed.
Estimates are that the cash-strapped state could
reap more than $1 billion a year.
"We could in fact have the political will to do
something, and certainly in the meantime this is a public policy call,"
Rep. Ammiano said. "I think the outcome would
be very healthy for California and California's economy."
The bill (AB 390) would ban use near schools
and prohibit growing cannabis in public view.
Also illegal, as now: DWS ó driving while stoned.

"I don't think we're particularly well served
in our society to further accommodate or even encourage something
that's going to be unproductive and damaging
to the individual, especially not for the reason of generating revenue,"
said Assemblyman Roger Niello of Fair Oaks.
But you're OK with hard liquor - which kills thousands
of people every year?
Roger Niello is a liar and a whore. He
can't stand the thought of someone being high.
I don't know what the number should be, but there
should be no tax on growing your own.
If you set up a farm and sell to your neighbors,
then I'm OK with a $50 tax.
Trust me, the poor and the purists will grow their
own and won't need any government assistance.
But some of us wouldn't mind paying $10 for a
pack of 20 perfectly rolled, consistently tasty joints.
But remember, the religiously insane talk to God
and God wants us to suffer - so no deal.

we need to get rid of pelosi and reed, and replace
them with kucinich and webb who won't try and play the "lets-keep-the-discussion

sorry but pelosi, especially, capitulated to all of bush's disastrous policies.
she knew about the torture and the rendition and
all of that but did nothing to stop it which is why "impeachment was off
because she is culpable. and having a "big city

than idiot pelosi...get rid of her.
Bart, I moved from southern California to Minneapolis
precisely because of the cost of living. We went from a
lousy one-bedroom in a shitty, crime-ridden apartment
complex to our own house, and the rent is actually less.
I don't know what percentage of the population
here is composed of "intelligent happy liberals,"
but I've got my three friends and anyone can
find those in just about any town.
Only problem is, I still have a lot of roots in
a very expensive place, and definitely wouldn't mind going back. It's filled
too many bros and hos now though, all those 20-somethings
who are happy to overwork at low-paying jobs and over-pay
for crappy housing just to live in an "it" place.
Drives the costs up for everyone. Huntington Beach used to be a cool, sleepy
surf town, but it got invaded by permanent tourists
and will never be the same, either in character or cost.
I'm with you: living somewhere expensive just
because it seems cool is ridiculous for a person of moderate means.
Republicans can't wait to shoot wolf pups from a hovering chopper.
Cheney wouldn't - he only shoots caged animals,
but Sarah Palin types are super-eager to prove their manhood
by killing wolf pups and that makes me sick.

He's against "fun" killing - isn't he?

Reminder: Shelby, Reagan, Lott, Helms and Strom all left the Democratic party
because they didn't like the idea of "them niggers" getting civil rights.
You'd think that's be a shameful piece of their past but no,
they're proud that they hate Blacks and they want their constituents

Again, a firearm in the house is 21 times more
likely to hurt you or someone you know than some evil intruder.
I doubt that's true - people repeat things they
hear, but where is the evidence?
Besides, if that IS true, it means I'm 21 times smarter than the average
because I'm not even going to touch my guns unless
some scumbag needs dying.
...ask the 11 yr old boys family that shot his
fathers pregnant girlfriend as she slept,
Who`s to blame, Bart ?......The loving father
or availability of firearms ?
Just curious in Pennsylvania,
That's not going to happen to me bacause I don't have any 11
year olds at Casa de Bart.
Complaining about the availability of firearms in America is like complaining
You can complain until you're blue-in-the-face, but what changes when
you're done? Nothing.
Liberals have a tendency to stare at the clouds and wonder how life
might be different.
I prefer to study the cold hard facts and then decide which is the
best way to deal with them.
As long as you and I are alive, there's going to be 200 million guns
in America. Is your mind capable of comprehending that last sentence?
If it is, then why bitch about the facts as they stare us in the face?
To answer your question, the idiot father made that gun available to
the 11 year old.
If he can't outwit an 11 year old, he has no business owning a gun.
And trying to pin this on me was really a weak and poorly-thought-out

Excerpt: "At the closing session of the "fiscal responsibility
summit" at the White House yesterday,
Obama introduced McCain and invited him to go
first in raising a point or asking a question.
McCain apparently thought he'd get in a little
dig, and began talking about the bloated Pentagon budget.
"We all know how large the defense budget is,"
the asshat said. "We all know that the cost overruns,
your helicopter is now going to cost as much
as Air Force One. I don't think that there's any more
graphic demonstration of how good ideas have

Subject: beating women
Bart, some men still view ďcorrecting their wives
behaviorĒ as part of their duty, or privilege, as husbands.
Legally it was allowed for centuries. Laws
in France and Great Britain allowed men to physically punish their wives.
Those laws came to North America during the colonial
years. In the American colonies in the 1600s a man could
beat his wife with a rod no bigger around than
his thumb, hence the Rule of Thumb.
As to why women today still stay with these assholes,
mostly finances, at least that was the case for my mom
and aunt in the 1960s. Women have more
financial opportunities today and yet they will still stay with some asshole.
