Quote of the Day

 "The hostage-takers are back: blackmail
  worked well last December, so why not
  try it again? This time House Republicans
  say they will refuse to raise the debt ceiling
  unless Obama agrees to large spending cuts,
  even as they rule out any tax increase
  whatsoever. And the question becomes what,
  if anything, will get the president to say no?"
     -- Paul Krugman    Link

Subject: What a difference 10 years made in the Debt Ceiling

As America hits the debt ceiling I can't help but to remember where we were 10 years ago.

When President Clinton left office our national debt was 1/3 of what it is now.
We were paying off the national debt and looking forward to a debt free America.
Our biggest debate was what we were going to do with the surplus.

Then the Republicans took over and solved that problem.

They took a prosperous nation and turned America into a third world banana republic.
Now they are trying to pose as if Republicans actually care about the debt ceiling.

We could do something about the national debt but Congress is going to have to give up
political games. We need to get out of Iraq and Angahnastan, tax the rich, get off of
Middle East oil, and we need serious reforms in litigation and liability. But most importantly
we need to decide we are one nation and give up the stupid petty bickering and put reality
first when it comes to deciding what to do.
 Marc Perkel

I don't think that's going to happen because of Bart's Law Number One.

Don't EVER tell the truth in a political campaign. 
People want to be lied to. 

They don't care if you're the best, most qualified candidate in history, they're going to vote for 
a candidate who stars in a fuzzy video of him playing with the family dog while his pearl-necklaced 
wife and your 2.3 small children watch in awe while the voice-over dude explains that this guy 
has whatever-state-you-live-in family values. 

If you doubt me, ask President Mondale about telling the truth. 

...but I like Marc's optimism.

"Few subjects elicit more rage and condescension than the simple, lovely idea that
  America is uniquely . . . American, and lovably so. Indeed, whenever conservatives
  talk about American exceptionalism, liberals react as if we were speaking German in the 1930s.
  When Barack Obama says that America is no more exceptional than any other country,
  how is that different from me saying my wife is no more special than any other woman?
      -- pure bullshit from Jonah Goldberg,     Link

Hey, Horse's Ass, you are making shit up and mislabeling the other guy's position.

That Love-it-or-leave-it bullshit was a clumsy lie four decades ago.
Why do you think the stupider half of America loves their country more than Democrats do?

The difference in our positions is this:
Your side likes to say "America is Number One" even when it's not.
Your side thinks America is so perfect, it can't get any better.

It's easy for the white, straight millionaires - sure it's all perfect for you.
But the non-white poor this country could be a lot better.

Wow - check it out.
That toon is  over 11 years old - and it still makes me laugh every time.

Subject: Sabbatical

Bart, old friend, I am afraid I'm going to have to take an indefinite sabbatical from your website.
I have a problem with your blind blood lust and redneck attitude towards taking life.

It would be nice if you quoted me on something I wrote.
Are you saying I should've shown OBL more respect?  Fuck him.

Some people tell you my main man Moammar is BAD, that he does BAD things, etc.
Who are the people telling you this? The same people who told you that Saddam was going to
nuke and anthrax and nerve gas us all, the same people who told you unsupportable, inexcusable
lies about 9/11 (not a petty thing to lie about!), the same people who think being "Number One,"
whatever that means, is somehow more important than helping every soul in our land to the extent
they need it to have a fulfilling life, in short, the people who put the $ in U$A to the exclusion of
decency and humanity.

You're not making sense.
You're asking for proof that Gadaffy is actually shelling civilians?
Don't they have TVs in Prague?
Or are you saying those videos are staged and not real?

How is a mass murderer your "main man?"
Which of us has a blind blood lust and redneck attitude towards taking life?

And how is Obama "the same people" as Cheney and Der Monkey?

OK, believe these "people" if you must, but you should try to at least act respectfully
and with restraint in the face of brutal, state-sponsored murder and blatant lies and
Grand Theft: The World's Resources.

Again, you're making no sense at all.
You seem to be saying Osama is in Afghanistan to steal what resources - their rocks?

Maybe you've been telling the truth all these years - maybe you're just a
way-below-average-intelligence Okie who means well.

So, if we disagree, it's because I'm too stupid to keep up with you?

Whatever, I'm going to take some time off,
and it's your own murderating fuckheaded fault!
 Bob in Prague

So, that's how they treat old friends in Prague?
You make incoherent, non-specific monkey charges and then throw your poop at me?

You recently invited me and Mrs Bart to come stay with you,
but then I turned into a "murderating fuckheaded" whatever that means.

Have a good life, Bob, and the next time you backstab an old friend,
you should at least be clear about what pissed you off.

One more thing: CNN is reporting that Gadaffy has issued
his soldiers Viagra so they can rape more women in a day. 
If Gadaffy the mass murderer-rapist is your "main man,"
I no longer want to be friends with you.

Each issue, there are 70-80 components on the page that could piss people off.

That's 300 possible piss-offs in a week and over 1,200 in a month.

It's a wonder I have any readers left.

If you see something you don't like, instead of flinging your feces at me,
why not act like an adult and ask me to clarify or explain my position?

Subject: bin Laden's death

Bart, bin Laden himself declared war on the US, and everyone else he doesn't like.
He was the brains behind Al-Qaeda, I agree with Rachel Maddow, he won't be replaced.

The US did this before, most notably in WW2.

Admiral Isokuru Yamamoto, the guy behind Pearl Harbor.
Several P-38 fighters were purposely assigned to shoot down the bombers being used as transports.
It was a "hit" on Yamamoto.

IMF chief on rape charges:
France talking about him in the past tense


I have no idea if this guy is guilty or not, but on Monday's CBS Early Show (whatever)
they said,
"It was widely known he was a sexual predator. His nickname was 'The Seducer'."


America's whore press KNEW he was a rapist and kept it a secret?

What other sexual predators are you not telling us about?
And there's a world of difference between seduction and rape.

America's whore press - they earn their name every f-ing day.

Bart, you wrote:

> As David Spade used to say, "Buh bye!"
Did YOU actually see what the USA did to Bin Laden?
NO. You took it on FAITH, they killed him.
No body, no DNA, no photo, no video.
You might as well believe in Jesus with that much evidence.
Bin Laden most likely died in December 2001, its what the ACTUAL Taliban said back then.
Not the made up Pentagon Contractor group in 2011.
 Super Joe

You are free to find a conspiracy under every rock in the universe.

As I said before, if Obama gets caught lying about this, history will call him
a bigger liar than Nixon and Der Monkey Fuhrer and I think he's smarter than that.

If OBL died in 2001, who's been making all those videos?
You say, "No photo, no video" but since we've all seen OBL's recent videos,
you're arguing for and against video evidence at the same time.

Subject: OBL

Bart, you wrote:

> His sneak attack on civilians was almost unheard of in modern history.

What would you call dropping atomic bombs on the civilian populations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

I call that retaliation for Pearl Harbor.
Japan was 4 years into a war they started - that's hardly a sneak attack.

What was Truman supposed to do? Call Japan and say, "We have a really, really
big bomb that
you've never heard of so you'd better surrender right away?"

Plus, Truman could've taken out Tokyo, but he pulled his punches, instead.

Subject: OBL's DNA


If the Navy had on hand DNA tests from Osama's relatives, they could do a simple PCR match
(which recognizes a person to about 1 in a billion...only maybe five people outside his immediate
family would match his DNA).  Most companies that offer this service can fit you in after only
a few days...but the process itself takes about two hours.  The majority of the two-hour time is
caused by the small amount of DNA they assume you start with.  If, on the other hand, you have
the entire body available, a reliable test can be done in under an hour, and a preliminary test in real time.

Subject: last issue's mystery city

Last issue's mystery city is Fort Worth, TX

The tall building in the center (that looks as if it has a stripe running down the side)
used to be the Bank One Tower.  There was a great restaurant - the Reata (?) on one of
the top floors. Bank One is no more, & the building was pretty much demolished by a
tornado that tore thru FTW back in 2000. It was rebuilt, and I think it is now retail on
the first floor or two, then residential above that.
The tall building to the left that is behind a shorter building is actually 2 buildings that
look almost exactly alike. They used to be called the Bass Buildings, but I think the
name has changed. Pier 1 used to have its headquarters in one of these buildings.
The tall, dark building behind and slightly to the left of the former Bank One Tower
is Carter Burgess Plaza - used to be the Continental Plaza. The former Burlington
Northern Railroad (now BNSF) had its headquarters there until they moved to their
own campus on the north side of FTW.
This is probably more info that anyone would ever want, but I love Fort Worth.
