"Why do people hate you?"
   -- Nine year old to Obama  

"Well, first of all, I did get elected President, and not everybody hates me. If you're watching TV lately, 
  everyone seems mad all the time. Some of it's just what's called politics. One party wins, the other party 
  feels it needs to poke you to keep you on your toes. You shouldn't take it too seriously. People are worried 
  about their own lives, losing jobs, health care, homes, and feeling frustrated. When you're President of the 
  United States you've got to deal with all of that."
      -- Obama,      Link

 That's a good answer and a troubling answer.
 How can we win if Obama thinks the lying sons of bitches are just doing their job?

I'd hate to lose a senate seat just to get rid of Spineless Harry Reid
but in the end, that might be the best thing for our once-great country.

The Politics of the Public Option
 by Robert Parry


Early in the congressional battle, Republicans cited an industry-sponsored study by the Lewin Group, projecting that 
the public option could lead to the defection of 119 million Americans from private insurance to the government-run plan...

So, to protect the interests of the insurance industry, congressional Republicans – and some conservative Democrats
– went to work killing the public option. Behind the scenes, the industry even helped organize angry protests at "town hall" 
meetings to pressure members of Congress to back away from the government-run alternative.

If the Democrats bend to the demands of the industry and the Republicans, Obama and congressional Democrats could 
find themselves in several years explaining how they enacted "reforms" that bully moderate-income Americans into buying 
over-priced health insurance, fatten the industry’s profits and fail to achieve any meaningful cost controls.

Such an outcome could be catastrophic to the Democratic Party’s future and to the concept of progressive governance. 
Yet, some members of the Senate Democratic leadership appear to heading in that direction, wanting to portray pushing 
through some bill – even one without a public option – as a victory.

"When the Dow was plummeting earlier this year, Sean Hannity would talk almost every night about 
'the tanking Obama stock market.' And now that it's bounced back from 6547 to cross the 10,000 barrier? 
Well, if Hannity has credited the president for doing something right, I missed it. Apparently, the market 
is only news in a Democratic administration when it's headed south."

Sarah Palin, John Edwards slide in polls
 There's a time to get into politics, there's a time to get out


Sarah Palin and John Edwards have seen their favorability ratings slide in recent months.

Edwards has suffered by far the biggest slide. When Americans were polled about him in January 2008, 
48 percent had a favorable view. This month, Edwards’ favorability rating was only 21 percent, Gallup found.
The plunge followed Edwards’ admission that he had an extramarital affair during his 2008 presidential campaign.

Palin’s favorability rating has also slid. She had a 53 percent favorability rating after NaziCon 2008. 
By the campaign’s end, her favorability had dropped to 42 percent. Her current 40 percent rating 
“is the lowest for her since she became widely known after last year’s Republican convention.”

There's one big difference:
John Edwards is out of politics forever but
braindead Sarah Palin is the future of the Republican party.

Charges will be filed in balloon saga
 The parents are guilty and I can prove it


A sheriff said he was pursuing criminal charges in Colorado's "balloon boy" saga, which first sparked fear 
for the child, then relief that he was OK and now suspicions of a hoax.

Deputies searched their home Saturday night, carrying away several boxes and a computer.

The parents, Richard and Mayumi Heene, met with Larimer County investigators Saturday afternoon amid 
questions about whether he perpetrated a publicity stunt when his 6-year-old son vanished into the rafters 
of his garage while the world thought he was zooming through the sky in a flying saucer-like helium balloon.

This didn't happen suddenly - it took hours and hours - so why didn't the parents talk?
They remained silent so the world could come to the desired conclusion.

Unless the Dad is a total tool, he had to know a balloon that small couldn't fly with a kid inside.
You and I had no concept of the balloon's size or lifting power, but the dad certainly did.

With all that time, why didn't Dad look at the balloon on TV and say, "There's no gondola,
so there's no way possible for my kid to be inside that thing," but he failed to do that.

I don't care how "distraught" the family was, they HAD to see the image on TV and realize
that without the gondola, there's no place for the kid to be a passenger.

I think Dad should do some hard time for this hoax and his wages should be garnished forever
to pay the state of Colorado for their expenses in this phoney rescue.

"Dave, Gitmo is still open and I'm not aware of any plans to close it,
    -- Bartcop, in an e-mail to Northern California Dave

 Subject: Obama to close Gitmo

January 22, 2009 Obama signed executive order to close Gitmo.  
Not aware of any plans to close it? 
What I meant was, if Obama signs a law that it won't rain on Friday,
that's no guarantee that it won't rain on Friday.

That link, in part, says, "Human Rights First is now focusing on making sure 
 that Guantanamo is closed promptly and safely." 

That's bureaucratic mumbo-jumbo for, "We'd like to see it closed."
That's a link to MSNBC from January saying Obama ordered the Pentagon to close down 
the Guantanamo prison within a year. I assume you do not want to gamble that Gitmo prison
will be closed down in 100 days or so. 

Bid to close Gitmo hits snags in congress


Obama's order to close the Guantanamo Bay prison by January faces snags in Congress that 
some of the president's supporters say result from a lack of White House muscle.

If there's one constant we've seen the last ten months it's Obama's lack of muscle.

Obama says, "I want to close down Gitmo" and Jim Inhofe will say "I don't like that,"
and Obama replies, "You have some good points, my friend."
Yes there are plans to Close Gitmo,  
The time line is for Jan 22, 2010 and Congress is fucking it up.  
Is this really Bart?  Not aware?     
 Confused Northern California Dave

That was a poor choice of words on my part. 
I should've said, there's a difference between talk and action.

They can talk about Gitmo until they're Smurfs but it's not closing down anytime soon.
All the Republicans have to do is scream "Willie Horton, but worse," and that plan is dead.

As long as Obama's goal is to be Mr. Nice Guy, nothing will change.

Subject: Rush Limbaugh suing

You may be receiving a letter since Rush has decided to sue "anyone of consequence" who has libeled him.

 A letter?  Oh my!
 That's a clumsy bluff from a man with no hand to play.

 I heard O'Reilly the other day barking out the same bluff.
 Someone called his show and said something off-topic and O'Reilly said 
"The FOX News investigative team would pay that guy a visit," which is pure horseshit.

 The bluffing blowhards want the stupid people to think they have their own Secret Service.
 It's a stupid bluff that's laughable on its face.

 By the way, Rush rapes little boys - he's done it for years.
 But he does it in the Dominican Republic so, if need be, he can buy his way out of trouble.

 And if he doesn't like seeing the truth in print he can sue me.

 BTW, did you know Rush is gay?
 That's why he has to pay women to "marry" him.

How many of those NFL owners that dumped Fatass Limbaugh are Republican?  
I would bet that the majority of them are. 

Sure they are - they're super-rich.
But they didn't want the Pigboy skunk at their picnic.

If he got in, the first week he'd say something like,
"If only the ni... Black players weren't so lazy," and then they'd have to 
vote on a punishment for his rascist ass and who needs more trouble?

Mike Malloy Live

Glenn Beck with a Vagina


Ann Coulter has made a career out of saying the unthinkable. Last week the bestselling American author 
caused outrage when she described the widows of 9/11 as 'witches' who revelled in their husbands' deaths. 
Mixing soundbites with short skirts, this former lawyer has become the most extreme - and popular - 
polemicist in America. How did that happen?

It happened the way it always happens. A right-wing loon spews the most hateful and vicious lies imaginable,
and the media fawns over them and gives them millions of dollars of  free publicity while the Democrats cringe in fear.

Then the right-wing purses open up and they buy 10,000 books at a time so it shoots to Number One on the
New York Whore Times best seller list and the vicious, lying loon gets super-rich, inspiring others behind them.

I'm so old I remember when there was just one vulgar Pigboy.
Now there are thousands of them and they all make serious money.

Meanwhile, Phil Donahue, who was the top-rated show on MSGOP at the time, 
was fired because he questioned the wisdom of Bush's Iraq quagmire.

The Left represents the majority in the country but we can't get access to the airwaves or the media.
And if a Democrat stumbles onto a TV or radio show, he praises the rat bastards and wishes them well.

The Democrats' biggest problem is they have no desire to fight or win.

We'd rather surrender than fight.

"How can I trick the media into dumping on Obama? Well, as you well know,

 Butt Rush, how can you "play" the media if they're not listening to you?     

 Besides, if you've heard the flaming Nazi gasbag once, you've heard all of his shows.

Jobless?  Join the Military
 Economy fueled recruiting gains in FY09


The military met or exceeded both their numeric and quality recruiting goals during fiscal 2009 for the first time 
in the 36-year history of the all-volunteer force, the Pentagon’s top military personnel policy official said Tuesday.
In addition, retention was deemed “successful” in all the services, the Pentagon said in a press release. 

A weak economy and increased spending on recruiting were the primary reasons for the recruiting successes.
“The investment per accession we were able to deliver this year — because we hadn’t built in the unemployment [rate], 
as it turned out ... left us with more dollars per recruit than proved to be minimally necessary, given the level of unemployment,” 
said Bill Carr.

The seasonally adjusted U.S. unemployment rate for September stood at 9.8 percent; 
another 214,000 Americans lost their jobs that month,

Under Clinton, we had the opposite problem.
The poor schlubs that were making $18K in the military found out they could make $100K as civilians.

So they left and the GOP said "Clinton is hurting our military."
The military thrives after a Rethug crashes the economy.

Subject: prostitution legal in California

Bart, is it that the porn industry pays taxes?
 Mary Jo

That's a good point.

California is drowning in red ink.
They should legaize "getting together" and let them pay sales tax, at least.

A $200 transaction would bring in maybe $16.50 to the state.
A hundred transactions would bring in $1650.

Have the girls get licensed and checked regularly by doctors.
Establish accepted Rules of Conduct for both parties.
If a girl robs her client or whatever, she loses her license.

Prostitution exists and will continue to exist.
The question is, like with drugs, do we want it run 
by the state or do we want it run by violent, two-bit thugs?

If they legalized all the harmless things people want,

They could balance the state budget in no time.

The non-existent Invisible Cloud Being would be angry.

Obama: Chill the Pot Busts


The Obama administration delivered new guidance on medical marijuana to federal prosecutors Monday, 
signaling a broad policy shift that will mean fewer crackdowns against dispensaries and the people who use them.

AG Eric Holder instructed government lawyers that in 14 states where pot is legal, federal prosecutors 
should focus only on cases involving higher level drug traffickers or people who use the state laws as a cover story.

Subject: Oklahoma Abortion Tattletale Law


For the person who said it never happened it is (house bill) HB1595 and was signed by the Governor in May 2009.  

That would be Oklahoma's Democratic I-love-a-good-cockfight governor, Brad Henry who beat
Steve Largent because Largent was against cock-fighting.  Henry is a "Toby Keith" Democrat..

It takes effect Nov. 1, 2009.
But one part does say that information posted to the department of health website will not be available to the public:

The Department shall post the required Individual Abortion Form on its stable Internet website.  
Nothing in the Individual Abortion Form shall contain the name, address, or information specifically identifying any patient.

Explain to me why all the information is needed, please.

The cave people who run Oklahoma hate women.
If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.

Loons: Obama's Success = Destruction of USA
 Rethugs have jumped the political rails to inhabit a world of their own


Republicans who make up the base of the Republican Party stand a world apart from the rest of America, according to 
focus groups conducted by DemocracyCorps. These base Republican voters dislike Barack Obama to be sure – which is 
not very surprising as base Democrats had few positive things to say about George Bush – but these voters identify themselves 
as part of a 'mocked' minority with a set of shared beliefs and knowledge, and commitment to oppose Obama that sets them 
apart from the majority in the country. They believe Obama is ruthlessly advancing a ‘secret agenda’ to bankrupt the 
United States and dramatically expand government control to an extent nothing short of socialism. While these voters
are disdainful of a Republican Party they view to have failed in its mission, they overwhelmingly view a successful Obama 
presidency as the destruction of this country’s founding principles and are committed to seeing the president fail.

Obama continues to signal that he sees this as "no big deal."
I wish my president was more politically savvy.

Is his staff warning him and is Obama then brushing them off?
Or does his staff agree that this isn't a major problem?

Secret Service - We're overloaded
 Death threats against Obama up 400 percent



Tasked with not only protecting America's key leaders including the most important of them all, the President, 
but also with the responsibility of investigating financial crimes such as counterfeiting, the US Secret Service is 
feeling rather tasked to the maximum these days.

With the spike in death threats against the current resident of the White House (up an alarming 400 percent 
compared with when Der Fuhrer Bush was in office) and the rise in hate groups across the United States since 
this Black president took office, the 144 year old agency faces an uphill battle to keep up with its responsibilities 
in these most daunting and demanding of times.

The new demands are leading some officials, both inside and outside the agency, to raise the possibility of the 
service curtailing or dropping its role in fighting financial crime to focus more on protecting our Black president
from the racist Christian handjobs who want him dead.

So why does Obama continue to shrug this off like it's nothing?

Subject: Two Recent Hoaxes

Hey Bart,
One hoax involving a helium balloon lasts 2 hours on TV and it shows that human beings really do care 
about the life of a kid in a balloon that may crash to earth. Another hoax involving Weapons of Mass Destruction 
lasts 7 years and gets [unknown thousands of] people killed while the world watches, criticizes, and admonishes the USA. 

The first hoax was put on by someone seeking a bit of publicity. The second was put on 
by someone who blew up frogs with fireworks as a child.  Which person will go to jail?
 Bob in Oklahoma/Arizona

It's the same sad justice we've seen for a long time.

Steal a ham so your kids can have a decent meal at Christmas and you go to jail.
Steal a hundred billion dollars from the Federal Reserve and you get bailed out.
