"A vote to increase the debt limit in this country is an existential question for a fiscal conservative.
  These votes aren't easy. ...What I don't think that the White House understands is how difficult it is
  for fiscal conservatives to say they're going to vote for a debt ceiling increase."

     --  Eric Cantor, the second-biggest dick in the House,                         Link

 Hey Eric, you had no problems raising the debt limit for Bush.
 Why is there a problem...

 Oh, yeah - Obama is Black, that's why.

Want to try an experiment?

I'm not going to ask you to do this every day, but let's try it once.

If you're inclined to click on what I call the "sub-pages," if you scroll down you'll see a link called "Share."

Don't click on it
, but if you mouse over it, some options will pop up.

Just this once, when you mouse over it, send the link to somebody.

You can send it via Facebook or Twitter or Digg or, apparently, hundreds of other options.

When sponsors see people sharing the link, I get some Brownie Points of some kind.

If you don't have anyone to send the link to, send it to  help@FocusontheFamily.com
or maybe the Vulgar Pigboy would like to start a war with  bartcop.com   ElRushbo@eibnet.com.

Thanks, I won't ask you to do this each time you click on a sub-page.

That would be asking too much...

Murdoch hacked Prime Minister
So throw the bastard in jail, already


Murdoch's journalists hacks from across News International repeatedly targeted former
prime minister Gordon Brown, attempting to access his voicemail and obtaining information
from his bank account, his legal file as well as his family's medical records. Separately, Brown's
tax paperwork was taken from his accountant's office apparently by hacking into the firm's
computer. This was passed to another newspaper.

CNN implied that Murdoch has been blackmailing Brit politicians for decades.
They had your secrets and they would destroy you if you crossed them.

Why does every politician have blackmail-able secrets?

*I* am blackmail proof - why can't every politician be as clean as Ol' Bart?

Our Democrats are so cowardly and so brain-dead,
they can't even think to say, "So, Reagan hated America
so much he wanted to increase the debt ceiling?"

Suddenly, the Trogs would have to choose.
Was Reagan a traitor?
Or is raising the debt ceiling not all bad?

For that matter, why don't Dems say,
"We want to bring tax rates back to Reagan's level?"

Why can't Democrats think?

Subject: rich pigs
You are absolutely right that the some of the wealthiest Americans are hogging
most of the money that this country needs to help its citizens to lead a decent life.

The most astounding thing is that some of the mddel class and poor don't see the
Repugs for what they are. Under what delusions do these people operate, or is
their hatred for a black pres. clouding their "minds"?

Poor people don't realize how much power they have.

To look at the election results, you'd think America was half millionaires and half poor people.

Poor people vote for tax breaks for the richest bastards all the time when they could
be voting themselves Free Health care for Life, but they choose not to.

They also regularly vote against their own self-interests.

If the Democrats would list the facts, they'd win elections 75/25 but our Democrats are so
goddamn stupid, they make un-educated Okie tequila drinkers look like f-ing Stephen Hawking.

Bachmann's boy has $10M Secret
Ed Rollins took illegal cash from Marcos
  by Robert Parry 


Ed Rollins brought a burst of positive media coverage to Michelle Bachmann when he signed on
as campaign manager of her sometimes loopy presidential bid, but Rollins continues to hide a
dark secret from one of his previous national campaigns.
For two decades, Rollins has withheld evidence about the identity of a top Filipino politician who
admitted delivering an illegal $10 million cash payment to Reagan’s 1984 campaign from Ferdinand Marcos.
Rollins, who ran Reagan’s reelection campaign in 1984, mentioned the admission in his 1996 book,
Bare Knuckles and Back Rooms, recounting how the Filipino casually asserted over drinks in 1991 that he
had carried the money in a suitcase to a Republican lobbyist who was representing the Reagan campaign.
“I was the guy who gave the ten million from Marcos to your campaign,” the Filipino told Rollins.
“I was the guy who made the arrangements and delivered the cash personally. … a gift from Marcos to Reagan.”
In his book, Rollins described this stunning news with a light touch.
The first thought that raced through his head, he wrote, was “Cash? Holy shit.”

The Bitch: Obama can't deliver
America-hater McConnell wants us to default


Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) on Tuesday said a comprehensive
deficit-reduction deal is not attainable as long as Barack Obama is president.
McConnell declared that deficit-reduction talks have come to an unsolvable deadlock.

"How are we suposed to negotiate with that nigger in the White House?" is what
McConnell would say if he could speak freely to his rope-and torch-carrying Teabaggers

Meanwhile, Obama is sitting in the White House smiling, saying to himself,
"Mitch doesn't mean that - it's just politics - he's my friend."

Alan Grayson for Congress
We need more fighters in Congress


Former U.S. Congressman Alan Grayson is running for office again.  Grayson says he
doesn't plan to do anything different. He said he's running again because of all the people
who have reached out and asked him to. Grayson already raised nearly $100,000 in donations
before filing his paperwork on Monday."We need somebody who's gonna stick up for what's right.
Somebody with guts," Grayson said.

...a shot of Chinaco to a great fighter with guts.

Bachmann: Slaves had it better...
than Black families under our Black president

Bachmann signed a pledge that reads:
Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born in to slavery
in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was
an African-American baby born after the election of the USA's first African-American President.

Meanwhile, Obama is sitting in the White House smiling, saying to himself,
"Michelle doesn't mean that - it's just politics - she's my friend."

Two and a half years in the White House, and five years after bursting on
the national scene and Obama STILL has no idea who he's dealing with.

Are American businesses waiting for a White president before

Subject: your comment about NASA

Sorry Bart, you are totally wrong here.

It's about time somebody put me in my place.

Manned space flight is a huge waste of resources. 
Everything a person can do can be done faster, cheaper, and better with robots. 

Seriously, there is no real science that came out of the shuttle program - even fixing
the Hubble would have been cheaper and easier to do - just launch another one. 

The Hubble had to be designed to fit on the shuttle, it would have been cheaper,
faster, and easier to have it designed for launch on a rocket.

Bruce, you and I are not arguing about the same subject.  Here's what I wrote:

> America is NOT broke.
> The super-rich are hogging all the money we used to pay to teachers, astronauts and cops.

If you want to debate the subject on the floor, let's have at it.

If you want to change the subject to how robots are more efficient than humans,
you'll need to argue that point with someone who understands robots.

Obama's 'al-Qaeda' light bulbs
"We can't let that socialist Kenyan ruin America..."


Having to buy a fluorescent light bulb is an affront to personal freedom.

House Republicans are pushing legislation that would overturn measures the
energy act requiring efficiency upgrades in the old-fashioned incandescent light bulb,
little changed since it was invented by Thomas Edison 132 years ago.

Republicans say the new standards are a symbol of an overreaching federal government
and people should have the right to buy the old, wasteful bulbs. Sane people say new bulbs
will save Americans billions of dollars in energy costs.

For some Republicans, the new standards are a glaring example of big brother government.
The legislation, Barton said, "is about more than just energy consumption. It is about personal freedom."

Why are light bulbs a "personal freedom" issue, but playing poker and smoking pot
are why we need the federal government looking over our shoulder every fucking minute?

Oh, by the way, Teabaggers, Bush signed the new light bulb law in 2007
but somehow, this has become the dreaded "socialist Kenyan bulb."

Subject: Social security should be off the table


Your scenario is exactly what happened. 
Obama proposed a 4 trillion dollar debt reduction plan with changes made
to Medicare and social security in exchange for a raise in the debt limit.

Boner blinked. 
We will get a clean debt cap raise, which is what obama's initial request was for.

Jas, I hope you're right.
Obama tends to surrender before he's asked to.

Subject: 10 years of Bush's tax cuts.....

With the exception of Canada and Israel, every country on 24-7 Wall St.'s list features a
much higher top income tax rate than ours -- currently 35% -- and a value-added, or VAT, tax.

What's more, despite the fact that the Tea Party regards high taxes as job killers, all these countries
also feature lower unemployment rates than that of the U.S. Below are graphs of seven of the nine
"happiest countries," along with their top tax rates and VAT taxes compared to the U.S.

Bart, I just realized I wasn’t even seeing your ads. I use “AdBlock Plus
and didn’t even notice the ads weren’t there since until I just looked for them.

Adblocker does a pretty seamless job of removing the ads without screwing up
the rest of the page and most people probably just install it and don’t think about it afterwards.

I just disable adblock for bartcop.com.
Maybe you can put a request that readers disable adblockers for your site;
I’m sure other people will disable them if they realize what’s happening.

Subject: Social Security scheme

Bart, the only problem Boner and Obama have is that the teabaggers don't understand
that the only thing on the table is Social security and Medicare. 

As Obama has stated any tax changes won't be for two years, giving them time
to rescind any tax changes and only destroy Social Security and Medicare.


Too bad we didn't know about Obama's negotiating "skills" when we voted in 2008.
