Bishops to Obama: No Compromise!
The Child Molesters are Teabaggers in Drag


When it comes to mandatory contraception coverage under the Affordable Care Act,
the nation's Catholic bishops won't budge an inch.
  It's no sale unless the mandate is lifted
from any person of faith who objects to facilitating contraception coverage for employees.

The bishops' position is essentially unchanged from when they blasted the requirement that
private insurance plans cover contraception, calling the mandate "unprecedented in federal law
and more radical than any state contraceptive mandate."

If Catholics can't handle being in America's health care system they should get out of it.

BTW, are we TAXING these business run by the crooked churches?

Why do honest, non-rapists not get the same tax breaks that organized child rapists' get?

Subject: what's Russ smoking?

I read your side bar on the cost of college.
I was wondering if Russ had some of that good medical marijuana there in CA! 
Because he is surely smoking something? 

In his letter not a peep was mentioned about Sports revenues at State/ or private Universities. 
Typically Coaching staffs are paid many many millions, plus all the revenue from licensed team
products and TV broadcast revenue?  It is crazy how we all bend over to accept the cost of
mediocre college educations in this country.   This carpenter in Mississippi has twins going to
college this fall.

One secured an academic scholarship , the other also graduated with honors but I will out of
pocket 85% of cost- if we get some scholarships. I smell some loans on the horizon- ugg! 

Tuition, books and fees should be free in this country as long as the kids make a 3.0 or better. 
But no that would make too much sense in our over militarized - all "volunteer" military insanity!!

Break up the Big Banks - Now


Two images come to mind when considering too-big-to-fail banks like JPMorgan Chase:
The first is of the gigantic spaceships hovering over all of the world's cities in Independence Day,
leaving the citizenry in shadows and the world in fear and uncertainty.
The second image is of an old New Yorker cartoon which shows a husband and wife chatting
with guests over drinks and h'ors d'oeuvres while an enormous monster scowls in the corner.
The caption reads: "We deal with it by not talking about it."
Most politicians are either talking about tighter regulations for too-big-to-fail banks, or about the
virtues of self-regulation and the so-called "free markets." But the real problem isn't how to manage
too-big-to-fail banks, which are inherently unmanageable. The real problem is that they exist,
an everpresent menace that hovers over our economy while we go about our daily lives.
They deal with that problem by not talking about it.

Why didn't Obama do this when they came begging?

When they said, "We need trillions of dollars or we're all going under," why didn't Obama say,
"Fine, split into twenty pieces with no bank owning more than 8 percent and you get the loan."

F-ing Wall Street will ALWAYS steal trillions from us - that's what they do.
That's why they exist - to steal whatever's not nailed down - they steal until they are stopped.

Subject: clicking on sub-pages


I know clicking the links puts food on your family, but it is a hassle. 

When I return to your page, it starts at the top and has to reload. 
Then I have to scroll down after it loads and find where I left off. 

Can you make it like other sights, where you can get right back to where you left off?
Not complaining.  Love your site. 

Just want to keep on it rather than getting sidetracked and going back to something else.
( like working or being productive.) :-)

Thanks bart,

Mark, I always appreciate the feedback.
On my system, (generally IE) it always brings me back to the point when I left.

But we have big changes coming - changes that I suspect will include that <h-ref> business
that opens a separate window for sub pages that I've been avoiding for the last 16 years.

Hang on, it should be here soon.

I feel like Rodney Dangerfield Back to School.

Second-Grader in Blackface
Says he wanted to honor MLK



A Colorado Springs second-grader found himself in hot water Wednesday when he was pulled
out of class for dressing like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. while also wearing black face paint.

Sean King dressed up as MLK, Jr. for a school project. The boy's mother said it was "wax museum day"
for the second grade class and that each child was assigned a historical figure to dress up as.

King showed up for school doing a Martin Luther King impersonation, wearing a black suit, tie,
mustache and black face paint -- his parents were with him, as were all the students' parents,
to watch the day's presentation. But before things could get started, the school's principal told
the second-grader that he needed to wash his face, leaving Sean confused.

"They thought it was inappropriate and it will be disrespectful to black people and I say it's not,"
young Sean said to KRDO. "I like black people. It's just a costume and I don't want to insult anybody."

I'm white, but if I had a vote, I'd say the kid was innocent.

If this was some son of a Teabagger who smeared black on his gace to mock the Doctor,
that would be actionable but this kid wore a suit,a tie and a mustache - obviously it was a costume.

Romney - You're so Bain


Obama's re-election campaign is keeping up its effort to paint Dog-on-Roof as a job-destroying corporate raider at Bain Capital.

In a video released Monday, Obama's campaign zeroes in on a Marion, Ind., company, American Pad & Paper, also known
as Ampad. The ad charges that Ampad bought and closed the SCM office products plant, immediately costing 250 workers their jobs.

The aim is to challenge Romney's arguments that he's more qualified than Obama to handle the country's shaky economy.

The ad says Romney and his partners multiplied their investment in the office products plant by 20 times while
the company went on to lose some 1,500 jobs and went bankrupt by 2000.

Former Ampad worker Randy Johnson calls Romney's performance "just the opposite of Robin Hood."

I like the strategery here.

Like a boxer, Obama is perppering Willard with jabs, keeping him off-balance.

If Obama can educate the voters, it should be easy.

Subject: Rickett, the guy who owns the Cubs

In Little Leauge, many years ago, I was on the Cubs.
Since then for nearly 50 years I have been a Cubs fan.
After learning what this despicable weasel Cubs owner is trying to do,
I hearby renounce the Cubs and hope they never win a world series.
 Jon in  Ohio

Hi Bart
The way I hear it, the Chicago Cubs are losing support.
All of a sudden, their lousy WIN/LOSE record has become an issue.
 Bob in  Leicester, NC

Hey Bart,
 If the TEAGOP starts up about the Rev. Wright, then the gloves are off concerning
the Mormon church... to be more precise lets look at Mittens.
Mittens is a member of that Church, he also was/is in a leadership position as a Bishop. 
That being said lets look at the doctrine of that Church as it relates to Jews, especially the
baptizing of dead Jews... lets look at how many the Church has baptized after signing
agreements with various Jewish organization to stop this practice, lets look at how many
of these agreements the Church has broken over the years, then let us ask Mittens about
this doctrine, lets ask Mittens how many dead Jews he has personally baptized.
Secondly, lets ask the Church why they did not allow Blacks to become members of that
Church until the 1970's, under threat of law suit, the Church had a "revelation" that they
should allow Blacks to enter the Church.
Thirdly, Mittens father was born in Mexico, a "natural born citizen of Mexico" according
to Mexican law... Why?  Why did Mittens grandparents leave the US voluntarily and
proceed to Mexico?  How many wives did his grandfather have?
Lets stop mollycoddling Mittens and begin to ask real questions concerning his background.
Keep swinging for all of us,

It seems suicidal for the owner of a baseball team to go
"all in" against our evil Kenyan presidential imposter.

It's as pointless as Burger King saying, "We don't need Black patrons."

Pigboy's Secret, Closed 'Induction'
Missouri gave him "famous Missourian" award


The vulgar Piggy Pigboy was inducted as a famous Missourian with a statue of his swine-like bust.
The ceremony took place behind locked doors and was heavily guarded. Doesn't it seem like they're
fearing the wrath of even other Missourians?

Honestly, who cares if a bust of Rush Limbaugh was unveiled? It isn't like the state has much in lines
of famous people aside from Ken McElroy, who was a rapist and murderer. There are lots of "famous"
people from Missouri and El Rushbo is certainly not the most interesting of the list. As for the bust of
the rabidly conservative pundit? It looks like Jabba the Hutt.

Does Siri work?
I don't use Siri nearly as much as I thought I would. It's great for hands free dialing "Call Mom, home" and the speech
to text is pretty accurate. "Text Rosemary I'll be home at 7 p.m. and I was thinking spaghetti and clam sauce"

You can put stuff on your calendar and tell it to wake you up or send a reminder at a certain time.  But you can't launch
apps with Siri, which is too bad. And it gets confused if your contacts data is not scrubbed, GIGO stuff like Mike vs. Michael
and a cell phone number as a home number. Often you still end up touching the screen.  The business categories are pretty
limited when you ask it to find an x near here. It fails almost as often as it succeeds. (Although my kids found that if you ask
Siri for a good place to hide a body, she'll show you reserviors or abandoned mines.) I'm not comfortable talking to Siri in public, either.

The iPhone works pretty well otherwise, save for the subpar speaker phone  and some apps that mysteriously won't open
without a shut down.  But I'm not going to bitch to the FTC or Apple's board. I old enough to still be marveling at cell phones.
I don't hate the iPhone or Siri, but I wouldn't promote it to someone happy with their existing phone.
Keep hammerin'

Bart, I have an Iphone 4S with Siri.  The commercials are misleading, but not untrue enough to sue over. 
They show big stars in nice, quiet homes asking Siri to do relatively simple things.  It does that just fine.
My issues:
1) At least in my city, it doesn't work between 4:30 - 5:30 pm.  This is the time when I could get the most
    effective use as I'm driving home from work.  I guess it gets overloaded because everyone else is trying to use it, too.
2) It is pretty limited.  You can call or text people in your Contacts, but you can't make any changes to contacts
    or any app - such as changing volume.
3) It can find answers to questions, but they just pop up on the screen, doesn't give the answers verbally.
4) In the car, with traffic noise, the AC going, and background noise from my kids, there's only a 50%
    chance it will understand what I say. 
Works Great with my bluetooth headset.
It will find the song or playlist I want very efficiently.
I like it, but it is obviously in the infant stage.
 Carol B from Austin

I have had a 4S for a couple months.  Siri is basically a voice recognition program that can dial the phone
and do internet searches.  It requires not special programming like the original voice recognition programs. 
It is affected by background noise and such.  Basically it is still just another smart phone.
As for the Apple commercials, they are not lying near as much as the Republican party does every day.
Keep hammering
 Proud Liberial

I will offer this... A coworker showed me siri at work the other day..
He asked Siri to call several different people... Siri failed miserably and
failed to identify multiple names in my coworkers address book.

Obama's Mess: Medical pot in Montana

"I might get 20 years in prison because
  Obama flip-flopped on marijuana policy."


Tom Daubert, 59, faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison,
a $500,000 fine for following Montana's pot laws to the letter.

He did NOT count on Obama waging a jihad against his legal business
that was helping sick people.

So, what's the lesson here - don't follow the law?

Maybe second-term Obama will help overturn the craziness of first-term Obama.
