"He's talking about him, that Ted himself will either be dead or in jail.
  Now, how does that relate to the president? I have a real hard time putting that together."
--  Lying Jim Imhofe (R-Pissquik)        Link

  I've never seen someone so stupid that acted even more stupid.

  Years ago, I used to say it a lot: "If I had been born Black, I'd either be in jail or dead by now."
  What does that mean?

  Being white, I have no idea what it's like to sit down in a restaurant and start to look at a menu
  only to have some Republican waitress come over and say, "We don't serve niggers here, BOY!"
  Had I been born Black, I assume I would have been raised to "take that"
  and live to fight another day, which is the smart move.

  But in my head, I'm thinking, "Bitch, you won't have a job tomorrow because
  tonight I'm burning this mother-fucker down..."

 That's what Ted Nugent means - that someday he's going to take drastic action which will
  either put him in prison or the grave - we can only assume he means he intends to shoot
 "that nigger in the White House."

 Wait, I can hear it now:
 "Bart, how DARE you assume Ted would use that kind of language."

  After saying in concert, "Obama, he's a piece of shit - he can suck on my machine gun,"  Link
  you think that animal treats America's president with respect behind closed doors?

Reporter: Democrats are wrong
Forced wand rape isn't rape at all


"It was vigorously uncomfortable," Carpentier wrote, partly "because the technician has to press the wand
directly against the areas she wants to get an image of—your uterus, Fallopian tubes and ovaries—so there's
more movement and more direct contact with pressure-sensitive areas of your body."

Carpentier continued:

You're also not lying flat on your back to facilitate access to the upper reaches of your vagina; and you're being
penetrated with a longer, rigid object than is used in a regular pelvic exam. My uterus is "high," so she had to tilt
the wand accordingly—and because it was so uncomfortable, she halted the exam before (completion.)

It was not, however, like being raped, despite all the furor-generating
headlines and "Doonesbury" cartoons that were printed.

It was uncomfortable to the point of being painful, emotionally triggering (and undoubtedly is moreso for victims
of rape or incest) and something that no government should force its citizens to undergo to make a political point.

But it wasn't like being raped—and using language like that not only minimizes rape for its survivors but makes
them and other women more frightened of the procedure, which has significant and important medical uses.

I don't like the language she's using.

First, she covered a LOT of ground, then basically called "Foul" on anybody who
would call the insertion of an object into your vagina AGAINST YOUR WILL, rape.

Seems to me "inserted against your will" is rape, but I'm no expert.

For childless women, that Republican Religion Probe is likely the largest thing they'll ever
have in their vagina - so I guess this is more  "Get government off my back" from the GOP?

And if she's right, doesn't this open a giant can of worms?

I was a woman, I'd consider what Republicans force on women more of a rape
than my date plowing me with alcohol and then trying to get "romantic" with me.

At least with my date, I have the option not to get involved. With the state,
you're forced to obey the law and forced to allow your object-rapist total access.

I'm suspicious of a female writer who says she was "painfully penetrated," but it wasn't rape.
It makes a "painlessly pentrated" rape look downright trivial.

Roofies, anyone?

The other thing:

This reads to me like a "I was waterboarded and it wasn't bad at all" kind of column.

I suspect that this writer had her column written before the procedure was done.

Do We Need Sales Tax Online?
I assume it's the Democrats pushing for this?
They won't be happy until they kill the Innertubes

"Should customers on pay the same sales tax as those at Wal-Mart?
Surprisingly, both companies agree that the answer should be yes. Almost two decades after
it started, the online retailer has joined forces with bricks-and-mortar chains to push for state
sales taxes to be uniformly applied to online purchases, reports CQ’s Ambreen Ali. has joined Wal-Mart, Target and Best Buy to support bills that would simplify
sales tax collection online. Opponents include eBay and an industry group whose members
include AOL, Expedia and Facebook.

States say they have paid dearly for their inability to collect tax on online purchases. On average,
states rely on sales and use taxes for almost a third of their revenue. Their inability to collect from
online sales has cost more than $52 billion over the past six years, according to a study. This year,
states are expected to forego $11.4 billion in sales taxes on online purchases.

I know - instead of killing the Internet, why don't we make the super-rich corporations
(that our Supreme Court insists ARE people) pay some goddamn taxes?

I coulda sworn this sticker would've been a hot-seller, but no, I probably had 50 left
when clumsy-ass Rusty knocked my diet Cherry Dr. Pepper into the swag box.

Subject: Re: Obama can legally kill

Hi Bart,
The better alternative might be to have checks and balances, like the Constitution says.

I like the Consitution, but it doesn't help much when you're under fire.

Remember when the whole warrantless wiretapping thing happened under Bush (which of course
he got away with and I believe Obama still continues, which is what happens when there are no
consequences for breaking the law)? They are supposed to go through the FISA court for approval first,
but of course the whole argument was "What if there's no time!?".


There has to be a way to set up some kind of 24-hour congressional committee or court that could
approve such assasinations at any hour of the day or night if absolutely necessary. And if not, at least
make the POTUS have to answer to one of the other branches the next morning.
That's how America was set up, to keep the POTUS from becoming a king:
for big decisions the other branches have to have a say.
Keep swinging that hammer!
 Jake in L.A.

Jake, I'm not anti-Constitution, but anything taken to the extreme can be bad.

IF my choices are staying alive or strictly obeying the Consitution,
I'm going to vote to stay alive.

I'll fight (but not die) for a terrorist's right to a trial.

Subject: Re: Nam days

I faced the draft back in 1971.

I had no drivers license, no affiliations, no nothing except an alternative High School enrollement.
I never registered for the draft. They only had punch card computers and I figured they'd never find me.

It worked really, my draft lottrey number was like 200 and they only took 230 and up, my year.
It made me a Federal Draft Doger, but who cares if you are not in Jail OR being shot by VC.
I had a lovely young lady at the time, pregnant with my first born Son as well.

So I lived, quietly and then President Carter proposed Amnesty for vietnam Draft resistance.
I was astonished. They actually made a law about ME!
I went forward, they were "grumpy" but the law saved my butt, seriously.

First time ever that a law actually made a positive difference in my life.
Thank YOU "Jimmy Carter"

I, too, faced the draft in 1971 - my number was 56 or so.

My Draft Induction Physical is a funny story that I'd like to put in the Bartcop Autobiography
but where/when will I get the free time to write that?

GOP to Bring Back Poker?
Obama's on the wrong side of this issue


One year after Obama cut off U.S. access to the three biggest online poker sites,
players are sending a message to Congress: We will not fold.
The nonprofit Poker Players Alliance last week launched a grass-roots advocacy campaign
timed to coincide with the first anniversary of “Black Friday,” when Obama on April 15, 2011,
seized the Internet addresses of PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker and charged
the owners with bank fraud and money laundering.
On its website, the alliance declares “The players will never fold” and urges support for a bill
introduced by Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) that creates a federal framework for regulating online gaming.
“It is more important than ever to have a national standard for everyone in every state that wishes
 to allow their players to play for money on the Internet,” Barton said in an introductory video.
But creating that framework could prove difficult with a Poker-hating busy-body in the White House
who thinks it's his f-ing business how I spend a dollar on a Friday night inside my home.

Thanks for the protection, Barack.

Wall Street may have stolen our homes, our jobs and our life savings
but don't worry, Obama is busy protecting us from the "evils of poker."

And the GOP is going to ride in and fix Obama's mistake?

Gore lost The White House over a few hundred votes, and Obama is doing his best
to piss off about 30,000,000 poker players just before his chance at re-election?

Democrats... they never change.

Google fined $25,000 for crimes
They 'willfully' stonewalled the FCC


Google intentionally hindered a federal regulator's probe into its Street View cars' "accidental grabs"
of personal information off of Wi-Fi routers, according to the investigating agency.

Google's penalty: A $25,000 fine.

The FCC said in a report filed late Friday that Google repeatedly gave the agency the cold shoulder
when it was trying to determine whether Google had engaged in any wrongdoing.  Google "deliberately
impeded and delayed" the investigation by failing to respond to information requests, the agency said.

It added: "Google apparently willfully and repeatedly violated Commission orders to produce certain
information and documents that the Commission required for its investigation."

But fining them $25,000?
That will sure teach them a lesson.

Good thing they weren't committing a serious crime, like pot or poker.

Hell, if they downloaded a song, the fine could've been fined $200,000 per song,
but our been-bribed congress-for-sale accepts cash to give the super-rich another loophole.

Scientists: Gulf fish sick
BP greed continues to haunt us


Two years after the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill, scientists say they're finding trouble with sick fish
that dwell along offshore reefs and in the deep waters — especially in places where the oil spill hit the hardest.

A small percentage of the fish they're catching have large open sores and strange black streaks.
The fish illnesses don't pose an increased health threat to humans, scientists say, but they could be
devastating to prized species and the people who make their living catching them.

Obama will know what to do.
By God, he'll hit BP with a $25,000 fine for destroying the Gulf.

That'll teach them.

You should be watching Veronica Mars
Reruns now running on SOAPNet Channel
 by some dude at HuffPo TV


"Veronica Mars" is back on TV thanks to SOAPnet and you really should watch it. The cult-hit series
is airing in syndication for the first time ever -- ever! -- and it's just as magical the second time around.

You should watch for ... Kristen Bell. Yes, she is a reason to watch the show.  Bell brought effortless
charm to the character and you can't help but root for the scrappy, snarky heroine. Her best friend
was murdered, her mom ran out on her and she was raped ... And that's just the first episode.

You should watch because ... There's been nothing like it since.  I had never become so invested in a show,
and a particular character, before "Veronica Mars" came along. And l haven't since. There's something very
special about "Veronica Mars" Season 1; it was lightning in a bottle. Everything clicked: the actors, the mysteries,
the pacing.  Season 1 of "VM" is a roller coaster ride and I will always put it at the top of my "favorites" list.

We started watching again - it's been 4 years or so since we've seen an episode and I was re-struck at how good
this show was and still is.  Besides Kristen Bell, the writing is better than most feature films in today's theaters.

Today's writers are so f-ing lazy - they always leave holes in the plot that are bigger than Pigboy's ego.
Watching Veronica Mars, you never scream, "Well duh, stupid, why don't you just do this?"

I doubt there's anything currently on broadcast TV that's this good.

If you have NetFlix or Amazon-Plus - whatever, watch the pilot and see if you don't get hooked.


"In short: overall greatness.  The last 6 or 8 episodes of VM Season 1 are beyond phenominal.
  The season finale wraps the threads of season 1 up so well and so cleanly that I imagine the
  writers of every other show on television would look upon it and bow their heads in shame."
-- Joss Whedon, creator of the Buffy vs The Vampires TV series       Link

I agree - this is how good TV can get.
