Wolf the Idiot Quotes
"Let's go now to the former Reagan Presidential Library."
--  Wolf the Idiot, before last night's debate

 No Wolf, that's still the Reagan Library - what are you, like stupid or something?

"When we come back, we'll talk with a former Vietnam Veteran."
--  Wolf the Idiot

No Wolf, he's a current Vietnam Veteran.

Were you born in America?
Do you not know what "former" means?

I can't wait for the day that you're a "former" CNN anchor.

I Don't Believe Obama Anymore
  by Matt Taibbi


I remember following Obama on the campaign trail and hearing all sorts of promises before
union-heavy crowds. He said he would raise the minimum wage every year; he said he would
fight free-trade agreements. He also talked about repealing the Bush tax cuts and ending tax
breaks for companies that move jobs overseas.

But the people he's surrounded himself with are not labor people, but stooges from Wall Street.
Obama has as his chief of staff a former top-ranking executive from one of the most grossly
corrupt mega-companies on earth, JP Morgan Chase.

Listening to Obama talk about jobs and shared prosperity reminded me that we are back in
campaign mode and Obama has started doing again what he does best – play the part of a progressive.
He's good at it. It sounds like he has a natural affinity for union workers and ordinary people when
he makes these speeches. But his policies are crafted by representatives of corporate/financial America,
who happen to entirely make up his inner circle.

I just don't believe this guy anymore, and it's become almost painful to listen to him.

Poor little Matt - he got fooled in 2008 and he's blaming Obama for that.
Did Matt just figure out that a politician might fudge the truth to get elected?
I hope his naive little heart isn't breaking.

Are you new to politics, Matt?

Why did Rolling Stone send a naive little boy to cover his hero for the magazine?
Did Jann Wenner see Matt's puppy-dog eyes and put you on Obama's campaign trail?

Did Jann tell you to make Obama look as great as possible?
And now you feel used, like a cheerleader who just put out and then got dumped?

Poor little Matt - he's learning on the job - but it's not that cute.

I'd rather hear the opinions of Candy Crowley (R-Butter Queen) on politics.
At least she knows what she's talking about - she's not learning on the job, Matt.

The Great Polar Oil Rush
It's time to soil the Arctic Ocean

In 2008, the US Geological Survey released an estimate of the oil locked in the earth north of the Arctic Circle.

It was 90 billion barrels, or 13 per cent of the world's undiscovered oil resources.

More recently, they said the Arctic might in fact hold as much as 160 billion barrels, which would amount to
more than 35 years of US oil imports and be worth more than 18 trillion dollars.

This is great news, and all it cost us was the Planet Earth.

BIG Oil sees this as an opportunity - to get rich, before your grandchildren burn up.

Subject: Polio heroes

Yeah, Bart, I recently saw a documentary about polio and was
amazed parents even had kids in the early 50’s, it was so terrifying. 

What heroes Youngner and Salk were … and I don’t’ believe
they accepted any money for the wonderful gift they gave us. 

It was a gift for humanity.

it cleared about 3am and I was glad I stayed up. This morning freezing temps, ice on tent and
fresh snow in the peaks.

it's a nightly ritual. At Eagle Plains tonight and will cross border into Northwest Territories tomorrow,

'Look forward' or Step Down
Obama's team feared a coup if he upheld the Constitution
so he did what he does best - he caved in and sold us out


Advisors for Obama feared the new administration would face a coup if it prosecuted Bush-era war crimes,
according to a new report out this morning.   Christopher Edley Jr., a high-ranking member of the Obama
transition team, made the revelation during a 9/11 forum.

Edley apparently tried to justify Obama's "look forward, not backwards" policy toward Bush-era lawbreaking.
Instead, Kreig writes, Edley revealed the Obama team's weakness in the face of Republican thuggery:

Edley responded that Obama’s team feared that leadership in the U.S. armed forces, the CIA and NSA
might “revolt” if the new Obama administration prosecuted war crimes by U.S. authorities and lower-ranking
personnel. Also, Edley told Harman that his fellow decision-makers on Obama's team feared that a prosecution
inquiry could lead to Republican efforts to thwart the Obama agenda in Congress.

So, Obama was their pawn even before taking office?
They said "Boo" and Obama surrendered?

He surrendered up-front because he was afraid the GOP might not support him?

So, any adminsitration can commit thousands of felonies - all they have to do is threaten the incoming
president and if he's a walking surrender machine, those crimes will never be investigated or prosecuted.

I guess "looking forward" is a nice name for that abortion of democracy.

"I know it’s unbelievable (that Republicans denied benefits to first responders).
 Really the only reason anything happened is because Jon Stewart did an episode about it.
 So a comedian who has a fake news show had to actually lambaste these guys on television
 before they moved forward on the bill which really sums up where we’re at. The mayor was
 going to cut 20 firehouses.  In the end he didn’t. That goes back to the oldest argument in
 the book about firefighters is that they never go on strike. Because they don’t, as public service
 people they’re always going to be the first people to get cut financially. That’s kind of astonishing."

Subject: Helpful tip to readers who don't want to block your ads
Hey Bartcop,
I've been clicking on your mystery pages regularly since you pointed out they support the page.
It wasn't until I started noticing the phrase "Marc Perkel says Adult Friendfinder works!",
without seeing a banner for it that I figured my AdBlock software was ruining my efforts.

So if anyone else is only seeing that phrase on the mystery pages, but no ads, here's how to *just* unblock your site:

Just type in http://bartcop.com and click OK.  Pretty simple.

Of course, now I have to go and look at *all* the Bartcop hotties again. But hey - it's for a good cause.


Rex, thanks for that.

Five 9/11 conspiracy theories

I'm not too eager to embrace these comspiracy theories
but reading this article makes the doubters seem pretty sane.

The writer embraces the wildest, craziest of the theories and then assures us
that Bush's crooked, crony government checked them all and found nothing.

Gee, is that why Bush & Cheney fought so hard against a 9-11 Commission?

Is that why Bush & Cheney stacked the Commission with hacks and toadies?

Is that why Bush & Cheney
refused to testify under oath?

Is that why Bush & Cheney refused to testify before TV cameras?
Is that why Bush & Cheney refused to testify before a stenographer?

Innocent people don't fear the truth - why did Bush & Cheney?

We know for a fact that Bush & Cheney are hiding something.
Thanks to Obama, we'll never know what their hidden truth is.

Subject: buying thru your Amazon link

You might want to check with someone who knows their ass from a silicon chip (I don't) on this.
I've gotten the impression that once I've found an item on Amazon it is cached and
you will not be credited for it even if I come to your site and access it through your link.

Things are tight right now, but hope to send some spare cash your way soon.

Lee, the easiet way to be sure is to look for bartcopcom in the link
when you do the actual buying.

They send me a check every month so it's working for some people for sure.

Thanks for thinking about me.

Subject: stock stuff

Hey Bart,
The dollar has an inverse relationship to gold. As the dollar decreases in value, the price of gold increases.

"The dollar is doomed (as is most other fiat currency), therefore it doesn’t matter if stocks go up or down."

The writer seems to agree that the dollar is doomed as currency yet is unaware of the relationship between gold and the dollar.

All the people who are buying gold now are going to lose 50-80% of their money.

That being said, gold is up 33% compared to global markets, is still “not in a bubble,” says renowned investor Marc Faber.
Gold is “an insurance against systematic failure and problems in the financial markets,”

People are not the main drivers in the uptrend. The world’s Central Banks are.

However, government bonds are not all that central banks are buying. Many are buying gold.
Colombia increased its gold holdings by 2.3 tons in July, along with Thailand, Russia, and South Korea.
Romania looks to do the same soon, too. Along those lines, Venezuela’s own central bank is scheduled
to take physical hold of its gold which will be released from its current holder: the Bank of England

Governments around the world are buying insurance (gold) against the very thing the writer mentions (The collapse of paper money.)

I would agree with the writer that FEAR is driving the price of gold and for the reasons mentioned in his statement.

"Monopoly money might be our next currency, since most every household already has a pile of the stuff 
shoved somewhere in the kids closet. But hang onto the dollar if you don’t mind paying a couple thousand 
of them for your next loaf of bread."

Taking the worlds monetary situation into consideration, we are simply seeing a flight from paper money
into another vehicle deemed safer which is gold.

Should the world’s situation change (US deficit reduction, EURO countries on a better footing)
market forces will improve to the point that paper money will not need insurance.

With the wide open printing of money to pay for debts, I don't see that happening any time soon.
You cannot print GOLD and therefore its value increases every time Bernanke changes the cartridge
on the printing machine. QE1 and QE2 didn’t work. QE3 is not going to work either.

We may have to “Bart”er for a loaf of bread!  LOL
