Quote of the Day

 "Right now Obamaís getting a pretty 
  good ride, donít you think, in the media?"
      -- Poppy Bush, Link

 Hey asshole, if that's true, maybe it's because
 he didn't lie 4295 soldiers into an early grave.

 Maybe it's because he didn't lose Detroit and New Orleans.
 Maybe it's because he didn't ruin the economy.
 Maybe it's because he didn't ruin the country.
 Maybe it's because he didn't break the world.

In THE THIN WHITE LINE, author Craig DiLouie presents a terrifying vision about how 
a pandemic might unfold, focusing on the Canadian experience but relevant to any country. 
Reading as if it were a non-fiction book describing a pandemic that has already happened, 
THE THIN WHITE LINE presents a realistic, meticulously researched scenario.

"Craig DiLouie provides us with a clairvoyant glimpse of life during the coming influenza pandemic. . . ."

"Thatís the working M.O. of this administration: no matter what we do, weíre going to eventually get hit again. 
Obama views the seven years after 9/11 as more a fluke than a successful strategy by George Bush to prevent 
domestic terror attacks. So if the working theory is that weíre going to get hit again, what is the best response? 
After all, the public does credit George Bush with keeping us safe at 9/11."
     --  Erick Erickson, liar and whore,    Link

 Erick, please explain how Bush's policies prevented an al Qaeda sympathizer from
 driving a gasoline truck into Radio City Music Hall during a live TV broadcast.

 Go ahead, I'd like to hear your theory.

 If you can explain that to my satisfaction
 I'll vote Republican in 2012.

"Heh heh - Think they bought it?"

What makes a lot more sense is Bush made Osama a deal:
"We won't try to capture you if you don't hit us again."

That would explain why an al Qaeda sympathizer didn't drive
a gasoline truck into Radio City Music Hall during a live TV broadcast.

What else could explain it?
Go ahead, I'd like to hear your theory.

If you're an insane handjob, sooooo eager to die for your non-existant God,
why take out a sheriff's office in Mosul when you could be as famous as Mohammed Atta 
and make the front-page of every newspaper in the whole f-ing world?

I mean - you only get to die once, so why die a nameless punk in Mosul?

We're All Torturers Now
 Will torture ever scandalize us again?


Conservative pundits casually likened water-boarding to prep school initiation and claimed that anyone who 
opposes prisoner abuse must simply hate America. The many ordinary Americans who want to see torture 
allegations investigated -- evidently a majority of them, in fact -- have been dismissed by these same pundits 
as members of a bloodthirsty 'hard left.' The president himself asks us all to move on. And if we're moving on,
it can't have been all that bad...

There's one other fact that accounts for the horror differential between the torture memos and Abu Ghraib, 
and that's the fact of Abu Ghraib. Because, as I have suggested before, after Abu Ghraib, America seems to 
have lost its capacity to be truly shocked by anything America might do. As chilling and brutal as the images were 
at the time, they have, in the years between, lost much of their power to repel us. They have become -- abetted by 
endless viewings of Jack Bauer on 24 and an interminable national debate about torture -- emblems of what America 
is at least willing to consider doing. They are no longer postcards from the unthinkable. They are what we have become.

They are what Bush made America into.
Bush and the Fascist dogs say torture is good for America.

 Subject: Is America serious about Torture?

Like Bush, Obama says we don't torture.
However not a single person who tortured is being prosecuted, nor has anyone so much as lost their job.
I think that for Obama to effectively pardon those who committed these crimes sends the wrong message.
It just says that we are probably not torturing anyone right now. Not that torture is wrong.
Crimes like torture are not something you can just sweep under the rug.

We need to show the world we are serious.

Gun owners attack Pigboy


Rush Limbaugh's new pet project -- fighting animal cruelty for the Humane Society of the United States -- is riling 
sportsmen from coast to coast, prompting fears that the talkster typically supportive of gun rights is aiding a group 
they say has a secret agenda to end all hunting in America.

Twenty-eight groups representing millions of hunters and sportsmen are demanding that the Fascist bastard end 
his collaboration with the HSUS and stop 'helping them to mainstream their image in the minds of reasonable people.

ha ha
It couldn't happen to a bigger prick.

The Banality of Bush White House Evil
 Even with torture, they couldn't make the link


We donít know if there was such unusual "chatter" then, but itís unlikely Zubaydah could have added information if there were. 
Perhaps some new facts may yet emerge if Dick Cheney succeeds in his unexpected and welcome crusade to declassify documents 
that he says will exonerate administration interrogation policies. Meanwhile, we do have evidence for an alternative explanation of 
what motivated Bybee to write his memo that August, thanks to the comprehensive Senate Armed Services Committee report on 
detainees released last week.

The report found that Maj. Paul Burney, a United States Army psychiatrist assigned to Gitmo interrogations that summer of 2002, 
told Army investigators of another White House imperative: "A large part of the time we were focused on trying to establish a link 
between Al Qaeda and Iraq and we were not being successful." As higher-ups got more "frustrated" at the inability to prove this 
connection, the major said, "there was more and more pressure to resort to measures" that might produce that intelligence.

In other words, the ticking time bomb was not another potential Qaeda attack on America 
but the Bush bastard's ticking timetable for selling a war in Iraq.

"Go fuck yourself..."

In GOP base, a 'rebellion brewing'


A quick tour through the week's headlines suggests the Republican Party is beginning to come to terms with 
the last election and that consensus is emerging among GOP elites that the party needs to move away from 
discordant social issues.

There was McCain's daughter and his campaign manager who last week demanded that their fellow Republicans 
embrace same-sex marriage. Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman -- the most devoted modernizer among the party's 2012 hopefuls 
-- won approving words from New York Times columnist Frank Rich for his call to downplay divisive values issues. 
The party's top elected leaders in Congress, meanwhile, spooked by being attacked as the "party of no," 
were recasting themselves as a constructive, respectful opposition to a popular president.

But outside Washington, the reality is very different. Rank-and-file Republicans remain staunchly conservative, 
and they appear to have no desire to moderate their views.... There is little appetite for compromise on what many see 
as core issues, and the road to the presidential nomination lies -- as always -- through a series of states where the 
conservative base holds sway, and where the anger appears to be, if anything, particularly intense."

Republicans want to lose in the worst way?
I suggest we sit back and allow that to happen.

Blacks hate them, Hispanics hate them, women hate them, gays hate them,
intellectuals hate them, the younger genaration hates them, etc.

Lastest survey says only 21% of Americans admit to pollsters that they're Republicans.
Of course, the jelly-spined Democrats are still to scared to breathe, but it's a no-brainer, kicking the asses of the 21%.

A Republican with Cajones
He's not scared of the vulgar Pigboy


Larry Murphy has strong feelings about Rush Limbaugh.

"Rush Limbaugh is a racist, heís a cancer to the Republican Party and he should be excised," Murphy said recently.

Those arenít unusual sentiments. But what is unusual is hearing them from a Republican candidate for office. 
Republicans far and wide have been prostrating themselves before Limbaugh in recent months, who has been 
effective at leveraging his massive conservative audience into allegiance from elected officials in the party. 
But Murphy, an underdog Republican candidate for Senate, says Limbaugh canít be the voice of the party.

"My opponents are afraid to say that," Murphy said.

It figures that he's the underdog - that's why he's willing to speak the truth.

"This is not fucking torture!!"
     -- Shepherd Smith (R-Tool) live on FOX News,   Video

 So, if you scream the f-word on live TV, it's not torture?

 Subject: wrong about Shepherd Smith


To be fair to Shepherd Smith at Fox News, he did not say:
> "This is not fucking torture!!"
     -- Shepherd Smith (R-Tool) live on FOX News,   Video
He said, in fact, the opposite:
"This is America. We do not fucking torture!"
See for yourself on the video. Anyway, what's worse: true believers like Hannity,
or a tortured media whore like Smith, who sold his soul to Murdoch and now can't sleep at night?
I don't know what your policy is on corrections, but this warrants one.

It was not on live TV, it was on an internet only show, and he said "We do not fucking torture.'
 Paul in NC

Yo Bart,
Slow down a minute, did you actually watch the video?
Watch and listen, he doesn't say waterboarding is not torture, he says,
"We are America, I don't give a rat's ass if it helps, we are America, we do not fuckin' torture!"
I'm the last person to stick up for Fox, but you shouldn't jump to conclusions, eh?
 Mike in Mooo Hampshmere

I think you need to watch/listen to that video again. Smith does not say "This is not fucking torture"
He says "I don't give a rats ass, this is America and we do not fucking torture"... radically different implication and meaning.
Lord knows I'm not a Faux news fan but Smith sure put his head on the block with that one, he'll probably be fired by the weekend.
 Tony D

Probably the 1000th to tell you,
Shep was pissed about torture...not denying it.
He said "we do not f*****g torture!"
He meant we shouldn't...
Wayne, Dayton

Bart I believed in the video Sheppard Smith is telling these other two nut balls that he is against torture and the
US Should not Torture and he doesn't want them to do it in is name . He is probably one of the only sane people
on Fox News .I watch the whole video and he was the only one against it and got quite angry at the other two .
 Mike  Mesa AZ

I think you are misunderstanding the context of what he was trying to say. He was angrily telling the grey haired hand job
that America should NOT be torturing under any conditions. He was not defending this country's right to torture or denying
that we do. He was furious that we are and that (paraphrasing) "since we are America we do not (should not) torture."
He meant should not torture. "We do not fucking torture." means that we are America and we are not supposed to be doing it.
After he realized he said "fucking" on TV he leaned back "It's wrong."      I am anti-torture, by the way, unless the Bush/Cheney families,
Bill O'Reilly, Hannity, Limbaugh, Fleischman, etc. are the subjects of the torture. Then I'm all for it.
Keep on hammerin'.

You got the quote wrong, Bart. Smith actually said
"We are America! I don't give a rat's ass if it helps! We are America, we do not fucking torture!"
I was surprised to hear that coming from a right-winger of all people.
There has been too much debate featuring "It helps keep us safe!" versus "It doesn't work."
I agree with Sheppard Smith: I don't care if it works, it's wrong. If you beat a 6 year old
with a tire iron for sneaking cookies from the cookie jar, he'll stop doing it, but that's beside the point.
It's morally abhorrent. THAT is the argument we should be making.
Fuck the ends justifying the means, that's what dictatorships do.

Either I'm misinterpreting your objection or you're misinterpreting Sheperd Smith (the guy in the middle, whoever he is).
He says, "I don't give a rat's ass if it helped.  (Bang on the table)  We are America!  We don't fucking torture!"
I take that to mean that that whatever the lawyers might have said at the behest of their masters, it, the torture,
was wrong, not that since we're America, whatever it was it wasn't torture.

A Biblical Obama


The overarching theme of the Bible, particularly of Genesis, is real estate. God is Trump-like, constantly making land deals 
(and then remaking them, on different terms). When Sarah dies, for example, there are two verses about her death, and a 
whole chapter about Abraham negotiating to buy a burial site for her in Hebron. Itís not just land that the Bible is obsessed with, 
but also portable property: gold, silver, livestock...

There are Bible heroes who seem very much like modern political figures. I am thinking of course of Bill Clinton, 
who is reminiscent of King David in his sexual misbehavior, emotional intelligence, and faith.

Is there ever a day when the GOP doesn't think of Clinton's cock?

And there are great Biblical passages about economics, notably when Joseph is vizier of Egypt, and gradually confiscates 
all the livestock and land of Egyptian farmers, turning them into indentured peasants, transforming a relatively free market 
into a centralized command economy. And one rich vein in the Bible is the tension between church and state, as God and 
His prophets are arrayed against a series of kings who aggrandize themselves and try to keep God out of the public sphere. 
The Bible, naturally, comes down on the side of church supremacy. My own sympathies are with the kings, who are always 
being undermined by meddling prophets. But I didnít find a Biblical Obama.

Get knocked out at the Political "Punch"


 Subject: Let the chips fall...

Bart,  you wrote::

> I say we let the chips fall where they may.
> If we end up losing Pelosi and Reid, ...well, ...that's a price I'm willing to pay.

And when I read that I literally LAUGHED OUT LOUD for 5 minutes!!  No shit!!
Keep it coming!!

Dude, I meant that shit.
If Reid & Pelosi broke the law, they show lose power at the least.

Detractors say, "Bart has a blind eye when it comes to the Clintons."
Clinton got semi-caught semi-doing a political groupie - and he's the villian?
While Poppy armed terrorists and Der Fuhrter faked a 4200-dead-soldier war?

"Let the chips fall" means "Let's look at the evidence."

The evidence says Clinton semi-had a girlfriend
and the Bush bastards armed terrorists and killed 4200 American soldiers.

America the religiously-insane is struggling for an answer.
To them, the blowjobs were worse than the 4200 dead soldiers.

 Subject: listing the facts

 Hi Bartoed one,

 During eight years of Bush a grand total of three people were waterboarded.

Who said that?  Rush or Hannity?
How could we possibly know if that's true?
One thing we know for sure is that Bush's CIA destroyed the proof  (video tapes) - they admitted that.

When Clinton was president he engaged in a policy called rendition. That was when
they would capture a guy and send him to a country such as Egypt or Israel and have
the guy tortured.  Some of them were never heard from again.

Who said that?  Rush or Hannity?
How could we possibly know if that's true?

So you see Bartcop, when you list ALL the facts the Democrats look like Republicans.
The only difference I see is that Bush did not ever send a guy to a foreign country
specifically to have them tortured. ( keep in mind that Gitmo is US property)

 Who said that?  Rush or Hannity?
 How could we possibly know if that's true?

So next time you want to list the facts can you do your readers a solid
and list all the facts instead of cherry picking the so called evidence?
 Carson ( I am not an animal I am a fiscal conservative* )
 * fiscal conservative means I understand economics ( slap )

Carson, are you sure you know the definition of "fact?"
You say only 3 people were waterboarded - what horseshit.
You say Clinton had people tortured - complete horseshit.
We know for a fact that Bush tortured because his legal advisors put it in writing.

Get your facts straight, boy.
