The Attack on the Middle Class
  by Al Franken, THE anti-rape senator


The American middle class is in trouble. Median family income is down. Jobs are scarce. Opportunities people
thought they'd earned through hard work are disappearing before their eyes. Working families are falling further
and further behind.
And that means it's hard for progressives not to feel like we're losing, too. Our movement is about putting the
concerns of those working Americans at the forefront of our national agenda.
Now, you can argue that Democrats in Congress should be doing more to win legislative battles - although,
as someone who is in the room every day, I can tell you that I don't doubt for a second my colleagues'   (proper use)
commitment to moving our country in the right direction.  (They're just too afraid to fight for it.)
And you can argue that the Democratic Party should be using different tactics to win elections.
But the fact remains: We as a progressive movement are losing the argument.
On issue after issue, we're playing defense.

"I oppose efforts to restrict the ability of responsible adults to gamble online, and I have voted
  against such efforts many times.  I am also a cosponsor of H.R. 1174, which would legalize and
  regulate online interstate gambling, including games of skill such as poker.  This bill provides a
  reasonable solution that permits responsible adults to make their own decisions while ensuring
  that there are adequate safeguards to restrict access to children and those with gambling addictions."

Subject: Cut Afghanistan not Medicare

In the battle over the budget Republicans are calling for cutting Medicare and Social Security
which in the long run is going to end up with our old people dying in poverty on the streets like
they used to before we had those programs.

What they should cut instead is Iraq and Afghanistan. Those wars are wasting 2 billion dollars a week
and accomplishing nothing. Bin Laden is dead. Mission Accomplished. Bring all the troops home now
and add the 2 billion a week to shore up Medicare and Social Security.

Wars aren't free. Someone has to pay from them. We need that money here. Time to put Americans first.
Throwing the elderly under the bus to pay for wars we never should have fought is just plain wrong.
 Marc Perkel

When I was growing up, the talk was always about Guns vs Butter.

Seems like we always have plenty of money for guns, never enough for butter.

Snippet from BCR 174

Seven minutes of profanity

Thanks to Horace Zachary

NOT safe for work.

Subject: your recent Yahoo rant...


Horacy Zachary just turned me on to a couple of yahoo clips of you ranting about yahoo,
and the overall whoring out of things..

do not think for 1 second that there are not a billion others out there thinking "fuckin A-ray" at those comments.

as usual, you are spot-on. the only fix for this that I see is for a substantial number
of us to push away and just unplug, but...don't hold your breath.

rock on, bart!

oh, and my complements to you for your excellence in cussing...
nobody can throw a cuss fit like you. well-applied, and not gratuitous...
it's an art.

Skip, thanks for that.
And shame on Yahoo for being in the prostitute business.

Subject: Bart, you're right
The apostrophe goes outside the s only if the noun is plural. 

Gates, as a person is singular so it is Gates's, but if you were
 talking about the family Gates it would be Gates'. 

"Robert Gates's pony is brown", as opposed to "The Gates' house is brown."

 I admit I wasn't sure, but I looked it up.

  Bill is correct!


Subject: Strunk and White's Elements of Style
You're right about the singular possessive. 
Tell the others to read Strunk and White's The Elements of Style. 

Evidently they need it. 
I hate to see someone who's right having to fight a battle all alone. 
Keep up the good work.

Subject: rules for the possessive case

Hey Bart,

Although I definitely read the site for the scathing political commentary
I also found all this bullshit about possessive cases and names quite interesting.

I always thought in the case of names that BOTH forms were correct;
because, as you pointed out, colloquialisms can sometimes change convention. 
But in the email Yvette sent you this jumped out at me:

"The possessive of a singular noun is formed by adding ’s {driver’s seat} {engineer’s opinion}."

"The possessive of a plural noun that ends in s or es is formed by
adding an apostrophe { parents’ house} { foxes’ den}."

So, that would mean you were most definitely correct.


Subject: Gates' nonsense
Bart, what's it like being right all the time?

It's brutal.

Smokers Jersey causes problem
Why can't everybody just chill?


In case you can't spot it, the Rays have removed the cigar from under "Smokers,"
causing some consternation from the old-timers in Florida

It's like people have nothing better to do than walk around, fucking things up.
I say you wear the old jerseys, as is.

If you do, some kid will ask, "Why do our uniforms have cigars on them?"
And coach can say, "Because fifty years ago, we were ignorant about smoking.
Today we know smoking kills, but that's part of the history of this team."

See how easy that was?
You tell the truth - you state the facts.

Same for Tom Sawyer and the N word.
You sit the class down, you tell them,
"We're about to read a great book that was written back when Moses was
  still in short pants. It was a different time then - and attitudes have changed."

Explain to those kids,
"There was a time when we were so ignorant, we sold Black people
  like we sold cattle and horses - THAT'S how stupid America once was."

Why not teach the kids the truth - age appropriate, of course.

Rethugs want to go back to the "golden days of yesteryear."
Let's teach today's kids why that's a bad idea.

Subject: Clinton worship

Sometimes your love and loyalty to the Clintons really makes me sad.
That unquestioning worship is the reason I took a break from your site
and canceled my radio subscription a few years ago.

There's always a reason to cancel a sunscription or to withhold a donation.
I express maybe 140 opinions a day, and that gets me in trouble.

Do you get that I can't possibly agree with you 140 times in a row each issue?

And even if I did, I could say something the next day to anger you, meaning
we could agree 279 times out of 280 and still, you'd have a reason to unsubscribe.

As far as I am concerned Robert Scheer has contributed much to the political
discussion over the years and has tried to shine a light on injustice. As someone
who has had his boots on the ground in a variety of places in order to give us
firsthand accounts I believe he deserves much more respect than you have shown him.

I believe you are being illogical.
What we both read is this:

What I DID learn, in just two paragraphs is:

Clinton doesn't have the brains to grasp the real problem.
It's so obvious, because of his overt temerity.
Clinton was actually working for the Republicans even tho they hated him enough to impeach him, 
Clinton is alleged to have pushed policies that "created damage"
Clinton is just like Hoover, who was the very worst of the very worst,
Clinton has the effrontery to revive his '92 mantra
Clinton has no sense of irony
Clinton loves to wallow in the messes he made without taking blame

Did I miss anything in those  first two paragraphs?

...and you see MY bias, but not Sheer's?

That's kinda amazing...

I have noticed that you become the most upset when the Clintons are criticized and
I really wish you would be more open minded and realize that Bill and Hilary are
not the shining beacons of liberalism that you think they are.

Have you learned nothing from Mike Malloy?
This is just my opinion so go ahead and rip into me too.
 Maria S

Maria, no reason to rip into you - you're just wrong.

When I say, "Name a better, modern president - go ahead - NAME him,"
people see, "OH, Bart's unconditional love for the Clintons has clouded his mind."

The fact that YOU can't name a better modern president tells me I'm right.

BTW, what, besides everything, do I need to learn from Mike Malloy?

Subject: possessives
Bart, I don't really know who is right or wrong in this, I haven't followed that closely...
But, according to Strunk & White's "Elements of Style", the possessive of Gates is Gates's.

You are correct, Sir!

When I was taking High School English back in the 1960s,
Strunk & White (Page 3) was the definitive reference. As far as I am concerned, it still is.
 John S

 John, you and Strunk are correct!    Strunk...Strunk...  is that a Catholic name?

 ...I think we're done here.

Spiderman in Poker Trouble
I knew he played, who knew he was good?


The article says some rich guy lost a bundle in a Hollowood poker game,
then filed bankruptcy and told the trustee where he lost some of his money.

Now the court wants Spiderman to cough up $300K in winnings.
That's not right.

Subject: visiting hottie and mystery pages

BC, does it help when I click on the Mystery pages and the Hottie pages?

Yes, it helps a lot.
Mystery pages and Hotties put food on my family.

I just went through all the hotties for today and will continue to do so in the future. 
Not only do I get to look at pretty women, but the photography is also top notch. 
It took less than 5 minutes to go through 110 pages. 

Dude, thanks for that.

That's like having 110 friends visit  bartcop.com

While money may be tight, I do have an easy five minutes a day for something that is
also easy on the eyes.  I figure this should help you - checking out your daily hottie pictures. 

I wonder if your readers know that?
I believe you have many readers that would gladly go through this process
if they knew it would help you and cost them nothing but a few minutes per day. 

I think everyone likes looking at a pretty girl and/or solving mysteries.

You may have stated this in the past but I either missed those days
or did not pick up on your message.  Please let me and other know.

Tom, every look at a sub-page helps - thanks for spreading the word.

I can fix the economy - RIGHT NOW
 It's called The Bartcop Tax Plan...


Subject: Ignoring the past doesn't change history

I don't understand this political farce the Republicans are pulling where they are pretending
to care about the national debt. We are in the middle of the Bush recession. They are the ones
who caused this mess and now they are holding America hostage over a situation they created.

As much as Republicans want to pretend that history was different reality prevents history from
being changed. What happened happened and now we have to pay the price. I think it's time we
start talking about the Bush recession and figure out what we are going to do to get out of it.

Edeena and Taanya - they're both very friendly and good looking! :o)

Re O-Bomb-a's plan to have an extra 23K troops home by the end of summer, 2012

...hmmm, say that wouldn't have anything to do with...Election Day, 2012 would it?
That would be an amazing coincidence;
the president couldn't be that manipulative and cynical could he?
 Scott in Arizonastan


Of course not, and last week's discovery "Gays should have equal rights, too,"
which means he's catching up to Dick Cheney and Ted Olson on human rights,
just in time for those same 2012 elections - when Obama really needs his base.

Still, that Supreme Court thing makes an Obama vote mandatory.

...maybe enthusiastically mandatory.

White babies now Minority
Teabagger's heads explode all over America

Twelve states and the District of Columbia now have white populations below 50 percent
among children under age 5 – Hawaii, California, New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, Nevada,
Florida, Maryland, Georgia, New Jersey, New York and Mississippi. That’s up from six
states and the District of Columbia in 2000.

At current growth rates, seven more states could flip to “minority-majority” status among
small children in the next decade: Illinois, North Carolina, Virginia, Colorado, Connecticut,
South Carolina and Delaware.
