Subject: Arizona does it again

Arizona has shown itself to be inhabited by right wing nuts once again! 
This is what happens when conservative hate radio is allowed to spew
their violent lies without being taken to task for it. 

It only takes one mental midget to take heed, pick up a gun, and do the unthinkable. 
Killing a federal judge and shooting a congressman!  He probably used the new
Arizona law that allowed him to carry his gun concealed, too.......
 Ron in Arizona

Ron, I believe Giffords voted FOR that "more guns is better" law.

The Best Defense Is...
  by Jonathan Cohn


Send e-mail to Bart

Subject: Just stopped shaking....

This assassination attempt on Congresswoman Giffords was just devastating -  horribly shocking
and absolutely appalling.

Like you, I was around for the assassinations of JFK, MLK, RFK.  The times now are certainly
different but the feelings that arise, when  once more an elected representative is a victim of an
attempted assassination,  take me back to those horrible days in the 60’s.

I was sickened by the needless death and destruction this madman caused.
I am trying to remain hopeful that Congresswoman Giffords  continues her fight for survival.
Most of us know very well where the threads of this tragedy began and how all the dots can be connected.
That needs to be addressed and addressed now.

We cannot continue on this path. But there are those who will deny any responsibility,
will try to turn this around to blame others, will even try to create a new reality for themselves,
rather than deal with truth of this horrible action.

If the country does not wake up NOW – then when will it???
 Mary Lou

I believe that will happen when Democrats demand it - which probably means never.

The GOP won't do anything to stop this - it works in their favor.
Hate and fear - that's their stock in trade.

And the whore press LOVES a good shooting.
I'll bet ratings for CNN and FOX were up over 100% this weekend.

So it's up to our shy mice in Washington.

Plain takes down her map targeting Giffords  no longer available.

Her camp is now saying, "Those aren't gun sights."


"...if he shot Gabby out of hatred, then it wasn't Gabby he was shooting, but rather some
  cartoon version of her, drawn by her political opposition. Because there is no way - NO WAY
   - that anyone who really knows Gabby could hate her or hurt her. She is a kind, gentle soul.

Subject: Ford Fusion VS. Toyota Camry

Bart, you published:

> "Ford Fusion is projected to hold it's value after two years better than Camry."

I agree with your skepticism, Bart.
Two monkeys and my 87 y/o grandma can build a car that'll last 2 years.

I want a car that'll last two DECADES.
Which is why my whole family drives Toyotas
(except for my sis, she has a Honda, also good).

AZ Death Panel Kills Two
Gov Brewer says, "Die, suckers"


Send e-mail to Bart

"Yeah. The whole tea party."

    -- Gabrielle's father, when asked "Does she have any enemies?"  

Send e-mail to Bart

Subject: Violence often starts with hate speech

It is no surprise to me that someone started shooting at Democrats like Congresswoman
Gabrielle Giffords when the Republicans openly advocated the use of "Second Amendment
Remedies" in their campaigns and referred to member of Congress as "domestic enemies".

This is a thinly veiled message that should Republicans lose the election at the ballot box
they should start killing members of Congress.

Hate speech might have had a short term political gain for Republicans in 2010 but there
is a long term price to pay. In my view those who would inflame people to violence bear
some of the responsibility for the results. The Republicans have to realize that when you
call out for domestic terrorism you get domestic terrorism.

"Gene Sperling, Clinton's NEC director, will be returned to that position later today.
  William Daley, Clinton's Commerce Secretary, was named chief of staff.  Head over to OMB,
  and Jack Lew, who did the job for Clinton, is doing the job for Obama. At least when it comes
  to management and economic policy, the president's recent personnel decisions have, consciously
  or not, called back much of the team Clinton had in place once he found his rhythm in dealing
  with the Republican Congress."

    -- Exra Klein

Well, sure.
 What says, "Obama is serious about creating jobs"
more than bringing Clinton's economic team back?

Subject: Scalia says what?

We live in a country where we have a Supreme Court Justice - Antonin Scalia - who says that
the Constitution doesn't protect women and gays from discrimination. And we're not impeaching this guy?

What has this country come to that we allow justices on the highest court in the nation who don't
have enough of a grasp on reality that they don't understand that women and gays are people.

I think Scalia has more in common with the Taliban than he does with Americans.

Subject: Your 'Land of Screaming Eagles" analogy is incorrect


 ha ha

You're saying I can be wrong?

This is one of more lively debates we've had in a long time.

Send e-mail to Bart - Connecting Global Buyers with China suppliers.

I was hoping a toonist would hit this.
It's NOT both parties,
it's just f-ing THEM.


"I've gone so far somewhere else that I almost can't relate to it...
  It's a bit of a pain in the pisser to be honest. Who cares?
  I know people care, but think about it from my angle —
  soon, I'm going to need help crossing the street."
    -- Robert Plant, not being honest about a Zeppelin reunion    Link

 He still wants to sing those great songs, but not with the people who wrote them.
 He still wants to sing those classics, but only with a bullshit country twang.
 Robert is/was a great writer - he can put his feelings into words if he wants to,
 but in this case he refuses to spell out what the problem is.
 More bullshit:
 Have you seen him on any talk shows the last few years?
 Jimmy Fallon asked him about the old, wild days - his answer?
 "It's all a blur, I really can't remember any of it..."

 I'm in the bullshit detection business and this is bullshit.
 Reality: "I don't want to talk about it so stop f-ing asking."

 Which is fine - he has a right to his freedom, but when he tours, the ads say,
"The legendary voice of Led Zeppelin - coming to our town,"

 which is a great tactic to put asses in seats, but when his band takes the stage
 it's a f-ing bullshit country show - like the dirty trick The Pretenders pulled on us.

 What's he hiding? Is it all about Robert's ego?
 If he's onstage with Jimmy Page he's the second biggest rock star in the house?

Subject: TeaBagger Confirmed?

Please post how you confirmed this.
I saw a post of a school mate of his saying he was a Liberal.
I certainly hope not but I could find no confirmation that he was a
member of the douche bag Tea Party.
 Mark G
Since the word "teabagger" is, to my knowledge, impossible to define,
maybe I should have said he was "of the teabaggers."

If you heard he was a liberal,
you heard it from someone who watches FOX NEWS.

Liberals don't shoot people.
Republicans shoot people.

The question isn't "How can Bart tie the shooter to the Teabaggers?"
The question is, "How do Teabaggers distance themselves from the shooter?"

Insane Limbaugh Quotes

"We're better then the Democrats.  You don't see any Republicans running
  to a microphone to blame a Democrat for the shooting in Arizona, do you?"
     -- The Oxy-d out Pigboy, just now, live on the radio in Tulsa

 Hey Pigboy, he SHOT a DEMOCRAT!

 You're right - nobody is blaming the Democrats for this shooting.

Medical Update

I heard a doctor on NBC say the bullet entered Gifford from behind
the left ear and exited from her forehead, above the eye brow...

I'm just giving you that heads-up because, since they weren't saying,
I assumed it was a left-right, temple-to-temple trajectory.

Since she's responding to questions, it would appear the bullet
missed her "processor" but some "data storage" might've been lost.

I hope her recovery is rapid and complete.

Subject: Arizona Tragedy

Republicans will continue framing their platform in an emotional way since passions and emotions
rule the roost.  Logic and reason, the tools of sane minded folks, liberals and sometimes democrats
are going to fall by the way side.  You say "facts don't matter (to the right) "  and you're right! 
It's feelings that matter,  and boy oh boy, feelings in the US with so much stress on people lately
with all these issues run high. There's no escaping.  

Why do nutzoids like Palin, Rush and others continue to attact fans?  Because they FAN passions.
Day in and day out.   You and I know there's nothing but crap coming out the wrong end,
but for many people, the point at which they listened to the voice of reason has long passed.  
People will put themselves at risk believing opinions that pass as facts.

    The downside of this is, even in light of this heart rending tragedy is that people leading the
political discourse won't change their tune.  I can imagine there's some Schadenfreude in all these
camps, and come Monday,   someone is going to say, some kid in AZ was off his rocker and its
their own fault,  they're lawmakers and what not, what are they doing mingling with people?!? 

It will all be explained away in one way or another, and in a sick way justifying to themselves
and listeners that the nonsense is the truth and their lives hinge on their version of the "truth." 
They won't accept any responsibility for their "leadership" and the effect they have.
