"You have a situation where you have a mother who's abusing a juvenile victim,
  seemingly unknowingly to the daughter, or vice versa, and the daughter is also
  abusing the same victim.   I just can't imagine a mother and daughter having
  this conversation, and the investigators say they don't have anything indicating
  the two of them knew about it."

Subject: Happy Twenty-Eleven

Yo Bartcop,

THANKS for another (exhausting/frustrating/hair-pulling/keyboard-pounding/anejo-sobering) year
of helping to expose the crooked GO(Tea)P crime syndicate and untangle bale after bale of Democrat
doubleknitted fluff.   The TequilaTreehouse is still THE place to go for a shot (make mine a double please;-)
of REAL Americana...great atmosphere, splendid view, impeccable spirits, mouth-watering cuisine, complete
with smoker's / tv / poker lounge.

Wish you (& Mrs.Bart & them KoolKatz) better success, health and happiness in the New Year!
Keep on swingin' that Hammer!!!
 Joe12Pack (& Co. in Doodledorf)     

Joe, thanks for that.
Maybe 2012 is the year Obama punches the bully in the nose.

Weekend TV and Radio

Kathy Griffin was funny as hell on CNN New Years, as I knew she would be.
She made it thru the evening weithoput cursing so I guess she'll be back next year.

Thursday Sirius-XM started The Richard Pryor Channel.
I listened to hours and hours of that and  I laughed until my ribs hurt.
I didn't realize how political Richard was.

He did one bit as God coming back to Earth.

"I want to speak to Emmit Till.   What do you mean, "He's dead,"
How did he die?  You lynched him?  Why?

OK then, I want to talk to Bobby - Bobby Kennedy - where is he?
You what?  You shot him in the head?  Why?
Where's my son, Jesus?  You crucified him?  You crucified my son!
You motherfuckers don't deserve the planet you live on.
You pollute the air, you foul the fucking water, you're killing yourselves."

It was powerful stuff.

Then he did Mudbone with the crabs and I thought I was going to f-ing die laughing.
You and me, ...we're lucky.  We got to live in the age of Richard Pryor,

Then there was Howard Stern's 9-11 broadcast - that was spooky.
Hearing shrieks of horror from the farting lesbian-spankers was very odd.
Howard and Robin wanted to "glass" everybody.

So it was a great weekend - until the Cowboys won.
They were behind the entire game - until the last 55 seconds.

I wish they were in the playofffs so I could watch them lose again
but I guess I'll have to wait until September for that.

Subject: arguing with idiots

Bart, I figured something out:

If one has or is getting an education, they are therefore a liberal.
Thus the opposite must be true...if you are uneducated or under-educated you are therefore a conservative.

They can't be expected to learn for that would make them a liberal themselves.
It's not that they can't learn, they simply don't want to, by choice as they say.

It's a political decision for them to remain uninformed for if they became aware of the facts
or bothered to read and learn an issue, they would then be tagged as a "liberal."

Good point.
If you stay in school and get an education or, Koresh forbid, get a Masters,
handjobs like the vulgar Pigboy will label you "a pointy-headed liberal elitist."

Better to be a drugged-out dropout like Rush Limbaugh, I suppose.

Subject: the DU situation

Hey Bart,

I'm a DU'er and I don't see any problems over there.
I visit and post on DU every day. I also visit Bartcop daily as well.
It helps me to stay sane while surrounded by republinazis at work all day.
 Big Al in Lawton, OK   (Bible Land)

Subject: the DU situation

Dear Bartcop,

DU is banning jerks, not progressives. Same as it's always had to do, only
there's more of them and they've got places to whine about it these days.

We've got a big tent, but if you want to poop, you've still got to do it outside.

The Hit on Helen Thomas
How dare she have an opinion!
 by Danny Schechter


Send e-mail to Bart

Subject: Feeding America

Dear Bart, the CEO of Feeding America makes more than $412,000 a year. 

This comment is from someone else, but it makes sense to me:

"That is correct, the head of an organization with a mission to feed the hungry
that Skinner trots out every year makes more than the President of the United States. "

Now we can argue over corporate executive salaries and why or why not they are excessive. 
However that is between the shareholders and the executives.

When you pay a CEO of a non-profit that much money,
it comes at the expense of the mission of the organization.

$412,000 a year?  Seriously.  That makes the person who is trying
to feed the hungry in the top 2% of wage earners in the country.    .  .  .   "

That CEO needs to watch Schindler's List where Schindler cries,
"This gold pin, that could have been 40 people"

Prepare to Die for a Lack of Money

  by Gene Lyons


Send e-mail to Bart

Thanks to Doug, the Engineer with a Conscience

Subject: What GOP dilemma?

Hello Bart,

I have a slightly different take on 2012 …
From what I’ve seen over my decades of voting … it’s all going just as scripted; perfectly, in fact.
Bipartisanship really means that both Rethugs and Dims are on the same team.
Both deceive their bases in order to achieve the goals of the oligarchs.

Bush bankrupt-eth
Obama negotiat-eth away

Of course Sarah Palin will be one of GOP candidates. This is all think-tank planned theater
and fun to watch, but Obama will win handily. Who better to champion the programs of
corporate oligarchy than another beleaguered, triangulating, ‘centrist’ Democrat under
constant attack from the right?

Watch President Obama continue to get done for the owners
what the GOP leadership couldn’t complete under Bush.

Clinton/Feingold 2016

Cheers, and Happy 2011 to all

“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.”

Subject: Marilyn Monroe


Those Marilyn Monroe photos were mind blowing!  Thank you.
Today's "Hotties" don't do much for me. [I'm your age] but I never
saw so many amazing pics of MM that I had never seen before. Amazing!

And I love the perspective you give to the insane world of politics.
I promise: when I am not deep, deep in debt and barely scraping by,
I will send you a "love check".

OK, you're right - I will send something before that remote day.

My mind is still spinning thanks to you.

I know words of praise don't keep the lights on but - please keep doing what you do.
No one cuts through the bs better than you and Mike Malloy.
And thanks to Mike for turning me onto Bartcop many years ago.

Wishing you all the best in the new year.

XY, thanks for that.
I agree about Marilyn and I agree about nobody-does-it-better Mike Malloy
but I disagree about today's hotties - some of them deserve that title  :)

Guess the City


Subject: last issue's mystery city

Bart, last issue's mystery city is Reno, Nevada

I used to go with my parents to the Circus back in the 80’s. Good times

Circus Curcus (Vegas) is the first casino/hotel we ever stayed in - 1983.
It cost $28 and the room was so huge we had to roll the TV closer to the bed
so we could see what was on it.
