"Haven't we already given money to rich people....

GOP Criticism goes Unanswered


There’s a meme circulating among some Democrats that Republican attacks on Obama’s terrorism policy 
in the wake of the thwarted Detroit bombing will just go away if they are ignored...

Rep. Jane Harman, one of the few Democratic members of Congress willing to back Obama, was able to 
stand up for a low-key approach without sounding defensive.

Most Dems, however, have been silent, and it seems like a deliberate strategy. As Karen Finney wrote, 
“Democrats are right not to engage the GOP in playing politics with the security of our country and our people."

But, by not engaging on the substance or backing up Obama, Congressional Democrats are ceding the initiative 
on the national security debate to right-wing critics like King and Hoekstra. Successfully accusing the other side 
of playing politics rarely works on its own—you also need to explain why one way is right and the other way is wrong.

Why fight back, when you can surrender, instead?

"President Obama used the terms "terrorism" and "terrorist" six times in his weekly address 
  to the nation. I don’t know how long it has actually been since he’s uttered those words.
     --  Jim DeMint, one of the leading assholes in the senate,   Link

 So - that means we're safe now, right?
 The GOP says Obama not using the "T" word was putting us in great danger.

True, it wasn't a scientific sampling but I know many or most

Ready For The Shit To Fly? 


Hate radio and Fox News hate show hosts may be on vacation from their microphones, but have no doubt, 
they and their Republican managers are in full war room mode, preparing to go shock and awe all over Obama 
and the Democrats on what they'll say is the utter failure to protect your family from terrorism Monday morning.

From Limbaugh to Hannity to Beck to every single one of the wannabes, they will be blaring "I told you so." 
Their guests will be nodding in full agreement while they sell their hitjob wares. Dick Morris has probably already 
written another "blame it on the Dems" hit job book this week. Newt Gingrich will reminisce about the old days of 
blessed contracts with America. Cheney and daughter will poke their spinning heads from the Dick Cave to castigate 
the administration for being weak and porous.

It will be loud and it will be damning. 
The tea baggers will be hunch over their radios ready for tearful marching orders from General Beck. 
Rush will call for Obama's impeachment. O'Reilly's Folks will nearly get out of their rockers. Nearly.

And the Democrats will cower in fear and wet themselves.

"Obama has suffered very greatly in the last few months because of the fight over health care, and he has very
  little political capital right now. So Republicans feel it is in vogue to criticize this president. And remember, he's on
  vacation in Hawaii, it’s much different than being in Texas. Hawaii to many Americans seems like a foreign place.
     -- Romney spokesman Kevin Madden,   Link

"He's from Hawaii.  The man's entitled to go to his home state for vacation. This entire thing is political."
     -- Carville,  Link

""It's much different than being in Texas."
  Yeah, uh, that state whose leaders want it to actually become a foreign place via secession."
     -- BobbyG,  Link

"That’s odd. When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor Americans didn’t think of Hawaii as a “foreign place”,
  and that was before it was a state."
     -- okie dokie,  Link

"At the rate he’s going, Obama’s going to have to be in office for 20 years to equal Bush’s vacation days."
     -- toonguy,  Link

"I’d gladly vacation in Hawaii. But you’d have to pay me lots
  to go to Texas, Utah or Oklahoma for any reason."

Subject: A Note from a Friend

Hey Bart,
One of my best memories relating to the Internet was back in 2,000 when I was searching for something about PigBoy. 
Your website came up and I was enthralled that I had found someone with intelligence, guts, humor and humility. 
For about 48 hours straight, even though I had friends coming in from Bartlesville and my apartment looked 
like a Rush Sty, I was glued to your website... reading the page and then clicking the "previous issue" button.
And then I was fortunate to meet you at one of the most memorable gatherings in my life... during the 
Bartfest for Julie Hyatt Steele in DC. You are one of the people I admire most in life... for many reasons.
New Year's Eve is always a sort of "triple witching day" for me.  I look back at the previous year... 
I wonder about the coming year... and I will be 63 when I wake up tomorrow. So today is the day 
that I reflect on my life each year. And, as I reflect, I know that you were a big part of the decade.
Your website has been a blessing for thousands of "dozens" of viewers, readers, contributors and patriots. 
I don't know how you do it... or where you find the energy, but I truly thank you for being the voice of sanity 
for the last 10 years. So... I don't wish you a Happy New Year, but a Happy New Decade. 
Thanks for all you have done for your readers and for what you have done for your country.
 Bob in Oklahoma-Arizona. 
ps: Give my best wishes to Mrs. Bart also.

 Bob, that was nice, thanks.

The Squandered Decade


I’m afraid that the past 10 years will be seen as a time when the United States badly lost its way by using our 
military power carelessly, misunderstanding the real challenges to our long-term security, and pursuing domestic 
policies that constrained our options for the future while needlessly threatening our prosperity.

I am aware that the previous paragraph is thoroughly controversial, and that befits any description of a politically 
consequential decade. Much of the contention surrounding Barack Obama’s presidency is simply a continuation 
of our argument over the effects of George W. Bush’s time in office.

That is why Obama, despite his fervent wishes, has been unable to usher in a new period of consensus. 
Bush’s defenders know that Obama’s election was a reaction against the consequences of Bush's time in office. 
Because Obama is both the anti-Bush and the leader of the post-Bush cleanup squad, his success would complete 
the rebuke. So the Bush camp - Karl Rove’s regular contributions to The Wall Street Journal’s opinion pages are
emblematic - must stay on the attack.

And it was all caused by the Democrat's refusal to stand up to the cowardly bully or list the damn facts.
Now that we have a decent president, the Democrats have found their voice and are fighting him tooth-and-nail.

Subject: Who do we screen for?

Every time someone tries to blow up an airplane we start asking the question, 
"How do we spot terrorists? Who is safe to let through?" 

One thing that is common to all these terrorists is a strong belief in God. 
No Atheists are out there blowing up innocent people. That's because Atheists 
don't have an invisible friend promising us sex with virgins in the next life if we 
blow up a bunch of innocent people. 

So when you get on a plane you might want to ask yourself who you would rather flay with, 
Atheists or Muslims, because an Atheist is much more interested in keeping everyone safe in this world.

Subject: Healthcare American style


How is it that none of America's vast right wing media have yet to
acknowledge that the worlds' best healthcare can be found in France?

Yes, it's France. We are ranked 37th. 

WTF, over?

The link below shares the

World’s Best Medical Care?



The whores at the NYWTimes have killed that link.

They don't want you to know we're ranked 37th,
but they want to be able to say, "Sure, we ran that important story."

The whore Times continues to help the Rethugs harm America.
That's why they've earned that "whore" label.

Meanwhile, the point is the Democrats still refuse to list the facts.

When Rush and Cheney and the others say, "America's health care is the best in the world,"
the Democrats kick the dirt and remain silent because they have little hamster sacs.

We're #37 when it comes to results but we're #1 - by far - when it comes to paying for it.

It's set up that way so the super-rich can continue to make more millions per year and the 
Democrats can't figure out a way to sell common sense to the super-stupid American voter.

Someone said the bomber didn't even have a passport.

In a place like Nigeria, do we have American Delta employees
deciding who boards the plane or local, unnamed "Nigerian staffers?"

And Regis said he was patted down for ten full minutes when he flew.
Why target the 80-year olds and let the 22 year old extremist on board?

And on CNN, they showed airport employees squarely grabbing some guy's junk.
If somebody's going to handle my junk I want to get paid - a lot - for it.

Pigboy declared dead by Wikipedia
 Suffered chest pains in Hawaii


The vulgar Pigboy was hospitalized on Wednesday for "chest pains" in Hawaii, but the hate radio host
(who also had a hate TV show ) is not dead contrary to a post made by Wikipedia Thursday morning.
The commentator's page was edited briefly to say that December 30, 2009 was the day of his death,
but it has since been changed back to say that he is alive and recovering.

Subject: California's unemployment check fiasco

Dear Bart,
I think you should know how the Employment Development Dept. in California is operating.  The short answer is 'barely'.

My husband has not received his unemployment check in 8 wks.  We understand that there has been difficulty
with the state's computer system, and that the federal gov't. has given our state billions of dollars to fix the problems.
Unfortunately, despite having spent the money, the problems are not fixed.  We can't get any information.  
We are afraid that something may have happened with my husband's claim, but we are unable to reach anyone 
who is able to find out what the problem is.

The EDD website is a joke. Going to the Appeals web page takes you to a page in Latin, I kid you not!
The 800 # phone lines have been busy for weeks, but if you should get through to someone at a local office,
they immediately tell you that they have no ability to get that information and transfer you to another extension
that rings and rings until abruptly cutting off.  At this point, I'm reduced to e-mailing anyone I can think of in an
official capacity, including you, to beg for help.  I am in the process of contacting President Obama, our governor
and our secretary of state, our state representatives, our Congressional representatives, Ms. Pelosi, and as many
media outlets as possible.

Our own situation is quite dire, but I wonder how many thousands of Californians had an even worse holiday.
I think this an unwatched pot that is boiling now.  Thank you for your time.
 Gwyn W

P.S.  To give credit where it is due - Assemblymember Noreen Evans' office was staffed this morning by a
wonderful guy named Ed Sheffield who was able to give me the name of the director of EDD - Patrick Henning,
and his address.  Interestingly enough, it is IMPOSSIBLE to find this information on-line.
Hmmm...  Also, Ms. Evans' office has a case worker who will contact us on Mon. 1/04/10.
Please wish us luck!

 Gwyn, I wish the Cali voters didn't think it'd be "neato" to have a Terminator governor.

 I'm sorry you're having to live with his ignorant and self-serving decisions.

Eldrick scandal costs $12B - so far

 Yahoo Sports

The sex scandal that engulfed Tiger Woods (Objection! They act like Eldrick was walking down the street
and this sex scandal suddenly "engulfed" him.).may have cost shareholders of companies endorsed by the world’s
most worshipped golfer up to $12 billion in losses, according to a study by the University of California, Davis

“We estimate that shareholders of Tiger Woods’ sponsors lost $5-12 billion after his car accident,”
the researchers wrote, adding that millions of shareholders were affected.

“Our analysis makes clear that while having a celebrity of Tiger Woods’ stature as an endorser has
undeniable upside, the downside risk is substantial, too,” Stango, a professor at the UC Davis.

Is Eldrick in a sex addiction facility in Arizona?.
