"It's not just the minimum wage that the GOP wants to get rid of. They want to nuke every law that
  protects workers. And that includes another provision of the Fair Labor Standards Act: overtime pay. 
  Workers could be required to work more than 40 hours without getting paid anything extra at all.
  If they have their way, the GOP will fundamentally change America, but in the wrong direction."

Subject: No one mentions Bush anymore

The Bush presidency was one of America's darkest times.
It was so dark that no one wants to mention Bush anymore.

Republicans never speak his name. Democrats don't mention him either.
And the news media seems to consider Bush a 4 letter word.

But maybe we should talk about Bush because if his presidency was so dark
that no one mentions him, maybe we should cast our votes this election to
make sure that those who support Bush's policies are not elected to office.

"Had the Chilean miners truly subscribed to the tea party view of the world, they would have
  first rejected any rescue attempt as a big government bailout, perpetuating the moral hazard
  problem of miners who went underground knowing full well the risks of their actions! Then,
  having refused rescue, they would also have ruled out collective action to survive, since that
  sounds like socialism. Only then would they have killed each other."

    --  Eric Liu, former Clinton advisor,

Subject: those Rethug ads

BC, I know you'd never be rude to your faithful readers,
but I'd be tempted to tell them to chill about those rethug ads.
1) If there's an ad for a Tea Bagger on your site, congratulations,
because you just took their money and their ad was totally wasted. 
It would be great if every ad the Tea Baggers paid for ended up being displayed on your site.
2) If someone comes to your site and decides to blow off logic and common sense
and become a rightwingnut because they saw a Republican ad pop up on your site,
no big deal.  They obviously never had good sense in the first place.
3) I know you need the money, I know you work hard, and I totally appreciate your
incredible publication coming out almost like clockwork, day after day. 

I would not complain about an ad on your site unless I was
sending you enough money to cover cancelling the offending ads.

Thanks for that.

Subject:  Obama

President Obama was saddled with that ass wipe Rham Emauel for two years.
Hopefully that was his achilles heel. Yet I do not understand his persistence in believing
he can somehow pendacticly persuade these corporatist republicans to legislate responsibly.

Hell, he can not get all the democrat senators to agree, even as he all but begs each to
commit, pubicly. I believe Obama will set back minority politicians from the office of the
presidency to the days of FDR if he does not pony up to the promises he made to America.

It's not that they will succeed, it's that he must at least attempt to enact. 

As he did with healthcare, as crippled and compromised for corporate interest as it is.
I sometime get the impression he has a pathological desire to be a negotiator or some
sort of dispute resolution endeavor instead of recognizing his role as a president.

Subject: Election depression


Marc Perkel's posting on Say NO to Stupid (voting) was spot on.  

It made me sit down and write a letter to the editor of our daily paper regarding that issue. Why?
Because voting stupid, not smart, is exactly what I think is going to happen here in Ohio. 
I'm afraid that after election day we will have returned to the day of almost complete GOP control.
Only Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown - who is not up for re-election -  will remain.

Lord knows the Democrats have made a lot of mistakes. 
But more and better LEADERSHIP from Obama might have made a difference. 
I am mad, really mad, that he was so 'hands off' for so long. He needed to get - and stay - involved
with what Congress was doing. He needed to come to the realization a lot sooner that his 'dream' of
bi-partisanship was not going to work! He needed to LEAD.

Now, we are all going to pay the price.  If things go bad in the election Obama will find himself in
an untenable position. Rethugs have made it clear what they hope to do to him and his policies if
they gain control.  There will be constant political fighting, and nothing meaningful or positive will
be accomplished.  This will hurt him if he has hopes of a second term. it may even doom his chances.

I've given a lot of thought to why things turned out this way, why a presidency that started with
such hope and promise collapsed so completely.  It goes back to Obama ultimately, and regarding him,
I remain totally mystified.

“Mike Palecek reminds me of Socrates the gadfly who asked unwelcome questions,
Diogenes with his lantern looking in vain for an honest man,
Chekhov the man with the hammer challenging the complacent family to share their meal,
Kerouac the ever on the move, somewhat hysterical searcher, and he reminds me of many
Americans who as children were so blasted with propaganda that they’re devoting the rest
of their lives to challenging the lies and all who tell them. In this land where babies are
brought by storks and buildings collapse due to unpatriotic bricks, we need the gadfly
because no leader, preacher, guru, or saint will wake us up, though the Doomsday clock
is ticking close to twelve.”
— David Ray, American poet, author of “The Endless Search”
and “The Death of Sardanapalus and Other Poems of the Iraq Wars”

Subject: two week truce?

Dear Bart --

May I suggest that you please call a two week truce on ANYTHING negative about 1) President Obama and 2) the Democratic Party.
On Wednesday, 03 November you can unload every clip from your Glock on the Whitehouse and the Democrats.
But, until the voting polls close on 02 November, please focus on the abominations that the Republicans have inflicted upon us.

You are one of the voices of division right now, one of the very people that you rant against constantly
when you scream about how the Dems can't play together as a team.  You are telling the world with every post
that Ralph Nadar is correct:  there is no difference between the repugs and the rats.  There is no reason to vote
because it will make no difference, they are all the same.

I don't think honesty is divisive.
Do you want me to write "Obama hits home run" when he hits a dribbler back to the pitcher?
It sounds like you're asking me to take the next 15 days off.

Encourage your readers every day to vote a straight Democratic ticket. 
They can do it immediately ... there is no need to wait for 02 November. 

On November 3rd, use your nukes on anyone you please.
Thank you,

Geoff, I doubt my readers are "on the fence" when it comes to this election.
This election has already been decided - it would take something drastic to change the outcome.

"Evolution should be decided on the local community."

 I think she has a point - we should also allow local communities to decide how much 2 + 2 is,
 and each community can also decide at which temperature water boils and freezes.

 WOW! She just called Reagan and Bush the Smarter (who both raised taxes) Marxists.

 A Teabagger can call Reagan a Marxist and still get GOP votes?

Bart,  If we click on these ads, will google pay you?

Bill, yes - thanks for doing that.

Subject: Rethug banners on your site

Dear Readers of Bartcom,
Perhaps you are not aware that Google determines what ads are displayed on Bartcom.
Welcome to the internet.

How does Google determine ad placement?
It is very simple:  a program runs which tracks things like names, events, politics, etc.
That program then puts ads into the subscribing web pages based on "names, events, politics, etc. "
This program has absolutely no understanding of context or partisan bias. Get used to it. Do not blame Bart.

Frankly, I find it hilarious to see ads for things that Bart chops, dices and burns into small lumps of carbon.

Subject: last issue's mystery city

Bart, last issue's mystery city  is Amsterdam, Holland. 
And more specifically, the street is Oudekerksplien, Centrum.

That's the famous coffee shop The Old Church in the background behind the gentleman,
I believe, a purveyor of the connoisseurs' finest choice in ganja in all its forms.

About last issue's History Mystery 

Only four people have commented:

One said he thought it was Keef Richards.
One said he thought it was Charlie Watts (also a Rolling Stone)
and one person said the car looked Australian.

Australia makes cars?

Oh, and one person asked how I knew the people are famous.

It was packed with those hundreds of other historic pictures,
so we have to assume they're famous or historic people, right?
