Quote of the Day

  "Mubarak stepped down, but..
   is he’s really leaving or
   is he just pulling a Leno?
        --  Letterman


In Today's Tequila Treehouse...

Arrow GM Pays $400M workers bonus
Arrow How crooked is Clarence Thomas?
SD: Legal to murder doctors?
Arrow Religion is a Crutch
Arrow Obama fights fire with gas
Arrow Herbert: Reagan vs Reality
Arrow Jennifer Morrison is 'Zoey'

"I had the chance to fabricate something to topple the regime.
  I and my sons are proud of that..."
-- Curveball, admitting he lied about Iraq
having WMDs,      Link

 "We're glad that you and your sons are proud."

"Thanks for those extra billions, Curveball!"

 It's Bart's Law Number Two - Any time a person or entity makes
 a "mistake" that puts extra money (or power) in their pocket, 
 expect them to make that "mistake" again and again and again.
 "Thanks for the extra billions, Curveball!"

"You know, it's fun to make these equivalences, and I'm sure that Jon Stewart
  will dutifully dredge up a couple of examples of Code Pink yelling something at
  Donald Rumsfeld to prove that liberals are 'just as bad.' And liberals will dutifully
  pull back and be more polite while conservatives will laugh and laugh and laugh.
  But it's bullshit."
-- Digby, reacting to an article by Liz Sidoti,,about hecklers at CPAC
           in which she employs the "both sides have hecklers" bu
llshit   Link   

  Digby is right.  Jon Stewart often points out that the Left
   is "just as bad" as the sons of bitches - but he's wrong.

How crooked is Clarence Thomas?

Subject: Bill Murray the golfer

Shit man, after all these years of chasing gophers, Bill finally was allowed in the main game.
This is just great news. We always knew Murray had it in him. When you watch all the
brightly colored fat men losing their shit over bad hits, Murray comes across as a
give-a-fuck character who simply makes his balls disappear (down holes, that is).

Hail Bill, the golfer in chief. He’s not fat, and he gets the job done.

SD: Legal to murder doctors?


"This lawsuit is not about politics or race....  It is about how quickly, in today's
  internet media environment, a person's good name can become 'collateral damage'
  in an overheated political debate. I strongly believe in a free press, but not in
  deliberate distortions of the truth. Mr. Breitbart has never apologized for what
  he did to me and continues -- to this day -- to make the same slurs about my character."
-- Shirley Sherrod, about her lawsuit for defamation against Andrew Breitbart )R-Liar)   Link

Subject: Poor don't need heat?

Shame on Obama Just this week, a mother in Kansas City with several children
burned their little home down trying to keep the children warm with a toaster oven. 

How can anyone bear the thought of the sick, the poor and elderly people of this
country going without even the basics. For crying out loud, heat and food are not luxury items;

Has Obama turned into a mean and hard-hearted Republican, or was he already one?
Bill Clinton would never have cut the legs out from under the people who happen to be unfortunate!!

After he cuts the social security out from under those of us who have contributed to it
for years on end; and cuts down funds for education and everything else he can think of, 
we'll be back to the good old republican 20's and 30's.

He might as well just have a firing squad or other means to kill people out right
so they don't have to suffer any longer.  The worst part of this scenario is that
it would be 100's of times worse under republican rule.

Saw this on Shirley's Facebook page

Subject: Palin and Neanderthals


I wish I could claim credit for this, but someone noted that Palin
seems to have abandoned her creationist shtick in favor of evolution.

It is generally accepted that Neanderthals were either an abandoned side shoot
of the human evolutionary path or a part of the direct lineage for modern man. 

Either way, I don't recall the Bible mentioning that "On the 8th day God
created the Neanderthal", and I read R. Crumb's Genesis  cover to cover.

I think Sarah is confused about what she believes.

If Democrats had any brains, or any will to win, they'd come up with a "science test."
You either believe in science or you don't.
Force the bastards to take a public stand and then f-ing pound them for it.

If they say they DON'T believe in science, then that should disqualify a caveman
like Jim Inhofe from chairing the Environment and Public Works Committee.

...but they have no will to win so they don't bother.

Subject: A call to reason

Hi Bart,

I love your site. I spend half my time "outraged" and the other "en-raged".
Your site fits perfectly. I do have a question for you.

Would you please tell me why you do not believe in God?
You could simply give a half-dozen reasons why you do not believe in God.

As I said, I love your site, but I stumble whenever you say it.
This is no sort of judgement.  I am also an air breather and water drinker
as you are, but I would perhaps understand site better.

Jackson, there is no evidence God exists.
Someone told you there was a God and you believed them.

Let's start from the beginning:
Odds are you have the same religion as your parents.
You believe in God because your parents told you he exists and your parents
were the ones who told you the stove was hot - so you believe them about God.

If you had been born in India, you'd worship a different God.
Same for Iran and Saudi Arabia, so why let the accident of geography
decide which "God" is real?   It makes no sense to me.

People pray to the non-existent God when they're afraid or need a favor.
Prayer doesn't work and I've got money to prove it.

Religion is a crutch for people who can't make it on their own.
If you're in a dark alley at night, you
illogically convince yourself that
God is with you and that he'll protect you, but if a gang of muggers
shows up, that belief in God won't help you in the slightest.

Religion also gives people an excuse to hurt and kill others - that's just crazy.
We have war in the Midele east because both sides are angry that Isaac kicked
David's ass 4,000 years ago (whatever - don't correct me) and that's pure crazy.

Archie Bunker famously said, "Faith is when you believe in something
that nobody in their right mind would believe in."   He's right.

When you die, you're not going to Heaven or Hell.
When your lungs stop working, your mind dies from lack of oxygen
and your body starts to decompose like 4-day old hamburger meat.

When someone tells you about God, odds are they'll want some money.
You know what the difference is between going to church and praying at home?
The collection plate.

What gall it takes for some preacher or priest to say you owe him 10%
of every dollar you earn your entire life - that's just extortion.

If you don't give the church money and follow their stupid rules
you're going to burn for eternity but don't forget - God loves you.

Some Commandments make sense - don't kill, don't steal.
When I was a wee lad, they told me it was a sin to covet that
brand new bike that my neighbor got for his birthday.

Since I didn't have a bike, fuck yeah, I coveted his bike.  That's being human.
Why does religion punish you for being human?

And if I see a pretty woman on TV or on the street, it's a sin if I wonder
what it would be like to have sex with her?  Who made these stupid rules?

Madonna said she stopped being Catholic when they told her tongue
kissing was a mortal sin, just like murder and rape - that's super-stupid.

The only way I can see God or religion making any sense at all is if
you consider Mother Nature a force, but even that is stretching things.

In America, you can't even get elected dog catcher unless you say,
"There's a bearded old man who lives in the clouds and listens
  to the thoughts and prayers of billions of people every day."

Santa visiting every child in the world on Christmas Eve makes more sense.

Religion is a racket, run by racketeers. Think of Oral Roberts, pre-TV,
going from town to town with his phoney-ass revival tents and his actors.

An actor would stand up and say, "I have a broken back."
Then Oral would touch him and wave his arms around and now the guy's
a linebacker for the Green Bay Packers - it's all about the Benjamins.

Now the jackals have satellites and they fleece tens of thousands of
victims each day - all with the power of the US government behind them.

Look at your TV dial.
They made it a law that the religious fleecing channels have to be near
the network channels, so it'll be easier for the wolves to eat their sheep.

If you get comfort by talking to God, hey, it's a free country.
But we need to keep than insanity far away from government.
Remember when Bush said "God told me to fuck Saddam?"

Plus, they drill this stuff into you when you're a defenseless little kid.
Even if you're just a year old, you hear the hushed tones of the people,
you hear the droning of the church organ and you smell that Frankincense
and it can't help but have an effect on you.

If they waited until you were old enough to drive to spring this on you,
most people would say, "That's crazy," and then where would religion be?

That's probably more than you wanted to hear, but it's been a while
since I did my anti-religion rant so I thought I'd get back into it.

BTW, why was your e-mail titled "A call to reason?"

Subject: last issue's mystery city

Last issue's mystery city was PittsburgH.

Although not the usual view of the fountain and town as seen from Mt. Washington.
I always thought if PittsburgH showed up it would be one of the easiest due to the
pics usually show the identifiable triangle, you came up with a curve.

It was my hometown this time!
