The Hell that is Joplin

This map is NOT showing what's going on.
Right now it's raining hard in Joplin and
it's about to get a lot worse.  Tulsa radar
suggests in the next hour, Joplin will get
slammed with a new round of severe storms
with lightning and possibly more tornadoes.
The pounding should last three hours or so.

Stupid Apocalypse Tricks

Mrs. Bart told me she heard of a group of pranksters who were going to strike
at 5 PM Saturday - when Jesus was due to ride into Tulsa on a giant cloud.

First thing, they filled some blow-up sex dolls with helium. At 5 PM, they released
these dolls and watch people's reaction to being left out of the "Mass Ascension."

The second part of the trick was to dump small piles of clothes on the downtown sidewalks.

BTW, I heard one of those Rapture hustlers on CNN saying,
"There's still time to beg for God's mercy."


The all-loving God is going to slaughter billions of people for not begging hard enough?

How could any thinking person buy into such hooey?

Subject: Protect IP bullshit

We knew that members of Congress and their business allies were gearing up to pass a revised
Internet Blacklist Bill -- which more than 325,000 Demand Progress members helped block
last winter -- but we never expected it to be this atrocious.

Last year's bill has been renamed the "PROTECT IP" Act and it is far worse than its predecessor.

Senators Leahy and Hatch pretended to weigh free speech concerns as they revised the bill.
Instead, the new legislation would institute a China-like censorship regime in the United States,
whereby the Department of Justice could force search engines, browsers, and service providers
to block users' access to websites, and scrub the American Internet clean of any trace of their existence.

Will you urge Congress to oppose the PROTECT IP Act? Just click here:

Last Thursday, in his "Muslim speech" Obama chided countries that would block the Internet.

Meanwhile, that coward Leahy is trying to block the Internet?

Leahy is the biggest coward in the senate.

"You have to wonder why producer Nigel Lythgoe even bothered to launch "CMT's Next Superstar."
  He already has a country talent competition. It's called "American Idol." Because its final two are
  ...country singers.  Now it's country vs. country, apples vs. apples. Is it really going to be all that thrilling
  to find out who wins? Let's just call it a tie, give them record deals and watch "The Voice" instead."
      -- Idol viewers everywhere                                    Link

 Yeah, they really screwed that up.
 Why fix a contest and then have it end so badly?
 Country vs Country?
 Idol is saying there are more Country fans than Pop fans, Rock fans and Soul fans COMBINED?

 When you win Idol, they force you to sing a syrupy "Wing Beneath My Wings" song for a YEAR,
 but how's that going to sound with Scotty's hard-core Country twang?

 Who's going to hire these two country kids?
 FOX Network, that's all, in an attempt to prove they're somehow relevant.
 Sure, they'll get to sing the National Anthem at some FOX sports events,
 but they're destined for the Trivia Pile, just like the last 5 winners.
 Lee DeWise, Kris Allen, David Cook, Jordin Sparks and the worst Idol ever - Taylor Hicks.
 Go ahead - put those five on one stage and see if 500 people show up.

Subject: pets and the Rapture

That web site has almost 250 rubes who paid them $135
to pick up their pets right after the rapture on Saturday.

The owner was quoted saying they "don't expect to have anything to do on Saturday."
So, this guy has made over 33K off these nutcases, but it's not fraud when they defraud themselves!!!
 -Joanne from Wisconsin

Damn, why didn't *I* think of that?
I could really use $33K.

But it might prove a theory of mine:
Out of, say, 100M Christians, only 250 really believed what they claim they believe.

Subject: Religions that ignore Reality  (written May 19th)

The world is not going to end on Saturday. Most people whether they are religious or not look at this
"Family Radio" group as a bunch of nuts. However most Christians believe that the world is going to
end in some sort of rapture just as Family Radio does. So really the only difference between what
Family Raido believe and mainstream Christianity is the date.

If one group is nuts then it seems to me that both are nuts.

In the reality based world we know the universe will continue to exist for trillions of years.
We know this planet will still be here for a few billion more years. The only question is how long
the Earth will be habitable by humans.

As a Realist I understand that decisions have consequences and that this chunk of rock we live on
is our home and will be the home for our children and grandchildren. If we are going to survive
and thrive we have to take care of our home and make good choices based on reality, not God.

I see the belief systems of Christians to be dangerous because if you believe that the world is
going to end then you are less likely to take responsibility to make good decisions. So we Realists
don't see a lot of difference between the Christians who think the world is going to be destroyed by
God on Saturday and the Christians who believe God is going to destroy the world on some other date.
 Marc Perkel


I have a possibly-related question:
Which church figure decided that we had to lie to kids about the Grand Canyon?
Who made the decision to divorce reality and go with the dinosaurs/people fairytale?

Who made the scientific facts unaccptable to believers?
Someone made that stupid decision - do we know who that is?

Wouldn't more people believe if they didn't add all that extra horseshit?
Wouldn't churchs have more parishoners (and thus more money) if they stuck to the facts?

It's like having a perfectly good chocolate cake, then some believer runs over
and blows their nose all over the cake - who did that and why did they do it?

Paralyzed man stands, walks


In 2009, doctors implanted an electrical stimulator onto the lining of his spinal cord to try
waking up his damaged nervous system. Within days, Rob Summers, 25, stood without help.
Months later, he wiggled his toes, moved his knees, ankles and hips, and was able to take a
few steps on a treadmill.

"It was the most incredible feeling," said Summers, of Portland, Oregon.
"After not being able to move for four years..."

I don't get how the GOP intends to sell this voucher idea.

"Instead of paying for most of your old age medical costs,
we'll give you a coupon for 25% off your medical bills."

So when you have that heart attack or surgery,
you'll owe $50,000 and you can't file bankruptcy.

Of course, we could always tax the super-rich
but the GOP says that's a "non-starter."

New Feature: Who's that Celebrity?

Subject: 1/4 readers think OBL is alive

The fact that many of us are inclined to believe damn near anything any foreigner says
is that we are now completely convinced that we cannot believe anything told to us by
our own government or it's puppet media.

In any international debate the safest bet is nearly always against the word of our own leaders.
Time and again it has been shown that blind patriotic support of our own nations' rationale and
explanations costs us dearly, in dollars, lives and especially national esteem. We know with
absolute certainty that our leaders will tell any lie and commit any act in order to gain control
over a market or a resource.

Today's militarist Sparta-like America is addicted to the spoils of war and has become a
psychopathic nation; a country with no effective conscience, and only a weak and muffled
sub-conscience that is being bludgeoned to death by those who have made themselves the
majority by replacing the one man-one vote ethic with a one dollar-one vote farce of a Democracy..
Tim in Ky

Tim, what I heard there was "Obama and Cheney are the same."

I disagree with that.

I think Obama will certainly lie to us when he has to, but the Bush bastards lied for sport.
They felt like they owned the country and the little people shouldn't ask any questions.
Sure, you have to be suspicious of your government,
but that doesn't mean everyone is lying all the time.

Subject: some believe OBL died long ago

Bart, the ACTUAL Taliban and many foreign newspapers announced he died in December of 2001.
Which is why you never actually saw a VIDEO of the guy since then.

"(Osama bin Laden) suffered serious complications and died a natural, quiet death. He was buried
  in Tora Bora, a funeral attended by 30 Al Qaeda fighters, close members of his family and friends
  from the Taliban. By the Wahhabi tradition, no mark was left on the grave."
    -  Egyptian newspaper AlWafd - Daily Dec 26, 2001
Meanwhile back at your webpage....

> Obama has bet his presidency on the fact that OBL is dead.

How could history prove he's lying, he's already been dead.
It's actually brilliant propaganda on Obama's part. 
 Sonja Red

What if the captain of the The USS Carl Vinson denies they buried him at sea?
What if a member of SEAL Team Six denies they flew into Pakistan?
There's lots of ways for a political lie to be exposed.

C'mon Bart...

That's just way too easy.

I don't even participate in these contests with any regularity...
All it took was a google search of the phrase "stadium with flower petal moving roof"
and the first result was this mystery city.

Given that this little contest is a big ol' rip off of the despised Andrew Sullivan's contest
"View from your window" you might as well mimic well, and pick harder views.

PS. Your site still looks like something that was put together in 1997 (oh wait.. it was...).

Justin, I don't get it.
You brag about what a great speller you are - with a dictionary in your hand.

And screw you for saying I ripped off Andrew Sullivan.
I had no idea he has a "View from your window" feature, whatever that is.

Each Bartcop issue takes 10-12 hours to produce.
