What if Texas Wants Out?
 I say we let them leave


Texas is irrevocably linked economically, socially and legally with the United States.

The online seceaion petition requests that President Obama "peacefully grant" Texas permission
to withdraw from the Union. Setting aside the fact that far more than 116,000 Texans might like
to have a say in the matter, what would a serious federal response be?

Let's say it's something like, "OK, y'all go ahead." Isn't that likely to be followed by a "But..."?

Isn't that "But..." likely to cost Texas a lot of money?

For example, isn't the Army likely to leave Fort Hood?  There go more than 50,000 active-duty
men and women, 9,000 civilian jobs and an economic impact that Comptroller Susan Combs
has estimated at $10.9 billion a year. Say goodbye to Killeen and some other Texas towns.

Multiply that impact by 14 other military installations in Texas,
none as big but all important to their local economies.

Won't the U.S., before peacefully granting this petition, want to be
repaid for some portion of the massive federal investment in Texas?

Jeb Bush in 2016?

Another Clinton-Bush Contest Possible


When Bill Clinton rolled through Florida while campaigning for Obama, he speculated about Jeb Bush's
intentions with Ana Navarro, a Republican strategist and friend of Mr. Bush. It was no idle topic for Clinton,
given the possibility that Hillary could seek the Democratic nomination.

When Teabagger-fave Marco Rubio held a strategy session here to discuss his own political future last week,
the Jeb question hung over the room; a decision by Jeb, 59, to seek the Republican nomination would almost
certainly halt any plans by Mister Teabagger, 41, to do so or abruptly set off a new intraparty feud.
Mr. Bush is said to be weighing financial and family considerations -- between so many years in office and
the recession his brother caused, Jeb's wealth took a dip, they said, and he has been working hard to restore it
-- as well as the complicated place within the Republican Party of the Bush brand.

The GOP is in a pickle.

Do they go with the sane former governor with the super-tarnished name?
Do they go with the inexperienced Mister Teabagger, who would energize the base,
but then bring that same insanity that turned off so many voters this year?

 Subject: Susan Rice would make a great Secretary of State

am now convinced that Susan Rice would make a great Secretary of State because
Republicans like John McCain want very much to stop her nomination. Anyone who the
Republicans are that much against must be highly qualified for the job.

McCain needs to focus on what's good for America
rather than his personal grudges over losing to Obama.

How Obama Won
  by James Carville


Two weeks after Obama kicked Thurston's ass, political analysts are just beginning to assess
the surprising scope of his victory. Rolling Stone turned to James Carville for answers. Carville traced
Romney's collapse to the reactionary posturing required by the GOP primaries,  and underscored the
strategic blunders like the Clint Eastwood debacle. "You can't control what happens in a debate,"
Carville says. "But you do get to control your convention - and they didn't control that."
Carville marvels that Romney entrusted his campaign to second-rate crony consultants who were so
divorced from reality that they had him convinced to the bitter end that victory was all but assured.
And looking to the future, Carville predicts that America could face a surprising role reversal in 2016:
Democratic voters are likely to behave like the GOP base and fall into line behind a pre-anointed candidate,
while Republicans will be forced to embrace a centrist agent of change.

Carville is right.
Once you announce, "I'm a severe conservative" in the primaries,
it's hard to then say, "I'm just a normal housewife like you" later in the general.


But the Pigboys of the world won't let the select a centrist.
Should be easy pickings for a united Democratic party.

 Subject: Obama's three dimensional chess

 Obama's plan worked to perfection.  After the first debate, all the GOP dark money went "all in" on Romney. 
 They spent over $100 million in the month of October.  They thought they were going to win until the very
 last few days.  Hell, some of them thought they were going to win right up to the election.  That was $100 million
 that DIDN'T go into the Senate races. 

 Do you really think that if the GOP had spent $100M on the Senate races we would have picked up Elizabeth Warren
 (who they hate more than Obama, and who spent a total of $26M in Massachusetts) and openly gay Tammy Baldwin
 (who spent a total of $11M in Wisconsin)?  No way.  $100 million swamps both of those races.  But now that they
 blew all that cash on Romney, we have the most liberal majority in the senate in the past three decades, and all of
 Obama's Supreme Court picks get confirmed.

 Obama is the smartest politician since FDR.

 The economic recovery is already baked into the economy, and the Democrats are going to get credit for it. 
 The next Democrat to run for President in 4 years is going to have full employment, rising income, falling debt
 (or dare I say it, surpluses) and BOTH Clinton and Obama stumping for him/her, while the Repubs will have, what,


 The decider?


 Are you looking forward to that?  We are going to hold the White House and the Senate for the next 8-12 years. 
 We will have a liberal Supreme Court, hand picked by Obama and his successor, probably for the rest of both of our lives. 
 This was a HUGE win.

Gay-bashing Thumper Arrested
SHE is into producing kiddie porn


A New Hampshire lawyer associated with an anti-gay Christian defense group was arrested
on federal child pornography charges after allegedly taking a teenager to Canada where she
reportedly convinced the girl to engage in sexual activity and let it be filmed.

Lisa Biron, a Manchester, N.H., lawyer associated with the Christian litigation group,
Alliance Defending Freedom, was arrested by FBI agents on Friday morning on charges
of transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, possession of child pornography
and five counts of sexual exploitation of children, according to the Concord Monitor.

Feds said Biron transported a teen girl from Manchester to Ontario, Canada, on May 25
and coerced her into engaging in sexual acts with another person that were then recorded.
Police said the videos and photos on Biron's computer depicted a teen girl.
Feds were alerted when police determined the porn was manufactured out of state.

The Alliance Defending Freedom, the anti-gay group Biron is associated with, is
a group of reactionary Christian attorneys lawyers pressing litigation to curb
reproductive rights and block the freedom to marry.

So - that's how they spend their time?

Screaming at gays and producing kiddie porn?

Subject: thank you

Hello Bart,

I just wanted to say thank you for all the time you put in to helping make this country better. 
Although I don't always agree with everything you say, I believe that I understand where the passion lies. 

I've been able to donate once before and I have every intention of doing so again as soon as the holidays
are over and I can assess the pocketbook damage.  I believe it's been about 6 years since I started visiting
your site and I couldn't imagine it all of a sudden being gone.  Thanks again for your hard work. 

Tell Mrs. Bart thank you as well cause we all know there is a great women behind every good man.

AW, that was nice - thanks.

Global Warming's Terrifying New Math
Three simple numbers add up to global catastrophe
by Bill McKibben


If the pictures of those towering wildfires in Colorado haven't convinced you, or the
size of your AC bill this summer, here are some hard numbers about climate change:
June broke or tied 3,215 high-temperature records across the United States.
That followed the warmest May on record for the Northern Hemisphere – the 327th
consecutive month in which the temperature of the entire globe exceeded the 20th-century
average, the odds of which occurring by simple chance were 3.7 x 10-99, a number
considerably larger than the number of stars in the universe.

To grasp the seriousness of our predicament, you just need to do a little math. For the
past year, an easy and powerful bit of arithmetical analysis first published by financial
analysts in the U.K. has been making the rounds of environmental conferences and
journals, but it hasn't yet broken through to the larger public. This analysis upends
most of the conventional political thinking about climate change. And it allows us to
understand our precarious – our almost-but-not-quite-finally hopeless – position with
three simple numbers.

I also read that the Colorado law applies to everyone currently in the state.

Fundraiser to Keep Going

It's been a while since we had a fund-raiser.
Subscribers are way off, donations are way down, but we still have a lot of readers. is worth saving, right?

Times are tough, and I realize people can't contribute like they used to
but I'd already be gone if it wasn't for Mrs. Bart kicking in her paycheck.

Even the purchases on are down - waaaay down.
Hopefiully that'll pick up some as Christmas gets closer so I think Amazon
is my best chance of staying on the web - at least that's a temporary fix.

Bart, that is the cathedral in Milan, Italy. 
When I was visiting in 1988 I walked by this cathedral every day for a week.
It is one of the largest churches in the world, even larger than Notre Dame in Paris. 
It took close to 5 centuries to build.  Like Spain, I guess the Italians love their siestas.

Basking in the Afterglow
Scenes from the 2012 Campaign
by Dan Benbow


Phone bank volunteers were handed a script and given instructions in groups.

Once trained, we were walked out to the call center - several rows of long tables
with folding chairs - given a list, and left to do our thing.

"Can I talk to (name of voter)?"

If they didn't hang up, I followed with "Hi, this is Dan from Barack Obama's
grassroots campaign. I'm calling to see if we can count on you to support the president?"

If they said "Yes" (as opposed to "None of your business" or "No, I'm voting
for Romney"), I continued with "Great. When do you plan to vote?"

A shot of Chinaco for the people who did the non-glamorous work.
The phone calls, the knocking on doors etc.
