Hillary's Long Shadow
2016 primaries could be suspense-free
while GOP civil war goes to Def-Con 4


The next White House race is already underway.

Jockeying by would-be Democratic candidates actually began well before Election Day.
And now that Thurston has gone down to defeat, a similar process is playing out on the GOP side.
These early days of a presidential election cycle are generally known as the “invisible primary,”
although in today’s media landscape, it’s easier than ever to see who’s up to what.

Is Hillary up for another round of bashing by the old, white bastards in the GOP?
Besides Biden, who else is even a maybe for our side in 2016?
Maybe if Hillary had grandchildren, she'd decide to retire with her very high approval rating?

It would be an odd thing if Chelsea's husband had
the power to personally decide who our next president will be.

How I Spent Thanksgiving

  by Alan Grayson


I did not spend Thanksgiving evening with my wife and my five children. I spent it, instead,
handing out turkey sandwiches to workers in Walmart. And showing my support for one brave
soul who walked off the job in protest against exploitation.

Knowing that Walmart employees were missing dinner with their families, we walked into the
local Walmart and handed out dinner to them. We gave them a paper bag that had three things:
(a) a turkey sandwich, (b) a bag of chips, and (c) a letter explaining their right to organize.
Walmart "associates" average about $10 an hour. If they manage to get a full 40 hours a week
-- and many don't -- they get paid $1,700 a month, before taxes. Somehow, that is supposed to
pay for their food, shelter, clothing and medical care, and that of their children. Quite a trick.
In state after state, the largest group of Medicaid recipients is Walmart employees. I'm sure that
the same thing is true of food stamp recipients. Each Walmart "associate" costs the taxpayers
an average of more than $1,000 in public assistance.
How underpaid are Walmart employees? If every one of them got a 30 percent raise,
Walmart would still be profitable.
Walmart employees in the United States are not unionized. Walmart has used every trick in the
book to prevent its employees from organizing. In 2005, in Canada, Walmart closed a store that
had voted to go union. Recently, in Orlando, Walmart fired an employee who had just talked about
unionizing. When he came back into the store, many days afterward, to say hello to his former
colleagues, they handcuffed him.
It's time to do something about this.

It's great to have Alan Grayson back in politics.

 Subject: Negotiating a tax deal before fiscal cliff

Since we are facing the "fiscal cliff" that Congress artificially created, the debate is about
what is and what isn't on the table. There are some things that can be done to make a deal
happen and give both sides some political cover.

For example, it's time for Obama to cave in on the Keystone Pipeline. This pipeline isn't
something that he's really against and it's just moving oil around so it's really not a bad thing
for the environment. But the Republicans have artificially elevated its importance and if
Obama gives in it will give them an artificial ego boost as well as creating a lot of jobs.

During the elections Romney suggested the idea of caps on deductions limiting how much
billionaires can write off. This is an idea that sounds good to me that Obama and the Democrats
should agree to. Both sides should agree not to give the military more money than they are asking for.
This will allow both sides to look good. I also think the payroll tax holiday should end because it's
really robbing Social Security and should be replaced with some other policy like an exemption for
the first $10,000 of income.

If Obama and the Democrats agree on these issues then that could create the political cover
Republicans need to allow the Bust tax cuts to expire for the rich. This is the kind of deal that
should work for both sides and make economic sense. If they get that far they can then focus
on the spending cuts in a second round of deficit reduction.

 Subject: great legal pot news

Bart, looks like some members of Congress have grown some ovaries and
are publicly calling for Obama to cease and desist in their pot prosecutions.

Nothing like a successful legal pot initiative to help a politician find his or her courage...
Have a great one, Bart!

Congress to Obama: "Back Off"

In light of the measures passed in Washington and Colorado, 18 members of Congress are asking
 the Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Administration Obama not to take enforcement
action against any individual complying with state law, while two others introduced a bipartisan bill
Friday to formally exempt states with marijuana laws from the federal counterpart.
Reps. Bobby Scott (D-VA), John Conyers Jr. (D-MI) and Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and others implored
federal officials Obama to permit states to serve as the “laboratories of democracy” and implement a
drug policy that may finally eliminate the insanity of our drug laws.

The voters of Colorado and Washington have chosen to move from a drug policy that spends millions
of dollars turning ordinary Americans into criminals toward one that will tightly regulate the use of
marijuana while raising tax revenue to support cash-strapped state and local governments. We believe
this approach embraces the goals of existing federal marijuana law: to stop international trafficking,
deter domestic organized criminal organizations and stop violence associated with the drug trade.

Funny how the writer mentions "federal officials" as tho nobody knows who won the last election.

Like with our insane poker laws, the power to re-prioritize drug enforcement is in Obama's hands.

“Mom & Pop blogs” like Bartcop renew my faith as well.

I cruise the web and visit some of the bigger political sites but I have also found some very
small blogs that I like and that make me feel at home when I visit. Yours in one of those.
When I visit Bartcop I feel like I am visiting your home and you speak to me with one, clear voice.
Thanks for that.

I know asking for money sucks and I do not envy you the task. I can only do my small part and
hope that for you, the joy of doing a good job outweighs the pain of asking for cash. I will try to
throw some more cash at you on a more regular basis to hopefully make that task a bit easier.

I hope you and Mrs. Bart had a good T-day and have a safe and pleasant holiday season,

Hillary's Choices Hint at Future


On a recent Monday, Hillary walked with her husband onto a stage in New York to cheers
and whoops and a standing ovation that only got louder as she tried to quiet things down.

It was a friendly crowd — tthe Clinton Global Initiative meeting — and people may have
been eager to hear her speech But really, they were there to see her.

“She’s just looked so sad and so tired,” said Ritu Sharma, referring to Clinton’s appearances
in the days after the attack in Benghazi.  They wanted to defend her, to rave about her,
to say how sick they were of people talking about her hair.

Mostly, though, people wondered what the woman walking across the stage — now smiling as
a soaring, presidential-sounding score began playing — would choose to do next. Maybe now,
in her final months in office, she would provide a clue.

Hillary says she will step down as Sec of State, unleashing fresh waves of speculation about her plans.

There is hypothesizing that she is merely entering a hibernation period before a 2016 presidential bid.
There is talk that she will start her own women’s rights initiative. There is the prospect, too, that this
might really be it for one of the most iconic figures in American political history.

I liked seeing those tired-Hillary pictures.
That tells me she's been working her ass off

I also really like the idea of Hillary heading up her own women’s rights initiative.
Women around the world are still treated as second-class citizens, if that.

She's going in the hostory books either way (already has) but would she rather history say
she was our first female president or that she empowered hundreds of millions of women?

Walmart's Sweatshop Blaze
How do you think prices got so low?


The 100-plus workers who died in a fire late Saturday at a high-rise garment factory in Bangladesh
were working overtime making clothes for major American retailers, including Wal-Mart, according
to workers' rights groups.
Officials in Bangladesh said the flames at the Tazreen Fashions factory outside Dhaka spread rapidly
on the ground floor, trapping those on the higher floors of the nine-story building. There were no
exterior fire escapes and many died after jumping from upper floors to escape the flames.
Officials said at least 112 people had died but that could go higher.
The Tazreen fire is the latest in a series of deadly blazes at garment factories in Bangladesh, where more
than 700 workers, many making clothes for U.S. consumers, have died in factory fires in the past five years.
Bangladesh has some of the cheapest labor in the world and some of the most deplorable working conditions.

Bart, Florida, and I, being a resident of FL, suffered under this soulless, evil, scheming snake for eight years.

He threw a Presidential election to his brain-damaged brother, and whose economic changes are still undermining

Lindsay Graham: "Sorry, Grover"
Closeted senator straddles 'sacred' pledge


Several Republicans said Sunday that they would be open to increasing taxes, with Sen. Lindsey Graham
(R-Fabulous)  going so far as to say he is willing to break his earlier promise to not support tax hikes in any form.

Graham said he opposes raising rates, but that he is open to increasing tax revenue by reducing deductions
for things like charitable giving and mortgage interest. Sen. John McCain (R-Woman hater) also said Sunday
that he would support limiting deductions.

"When you're $16 trillion in debt, the only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid becoming
Greece, and Republicans should put revenue on the table," Graham said on "This Whore with Judas Maximus."
"We're this far in debt. We don't generate enough revenue. Capping deductions will help generate revenue.
Raising tax rates will hurt job creation."

"So Grover is wrong when it comes to saying we can't cap deductions and buy down debt," Graham continued.
"I want to buy down debt and cut rates to create jobs, but I will violate the pledge for the good of the country,
only if Democrats will do entitlement reform."

Plenty of problems with this liar's position.

First, he's "willing" to close loopholes if what - we kill Social Security and Medicare?
The problem with that is voters LIKE
Social Security and Medicare but the bigger problem is
the super-rich don't have a mortgage. Why pay interest when you have millions in the bank?

And Republicans laugh when you mention giving to charity.
If they refuse to support their country, why would they support some charity?

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.

Back in the old days, when people had jobs, we raised $6,000 once.
(It kills me to see other Lefty sites appeal for money:
 "We need $30,000 by Friday - can you help?") 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.

PLEASE remember to use the Amazon link when you shop online.

I can make it till the end of the year, and since Amazon pays two months late,
I can see me staying alive until late February, but I can't make it thru next year
on what's been coming in lately.

If you think  is worth saving, please try to kick in a few dollars.

I will make you this promise: I won't disappear suddenly.

Report: Obamacare Good Deal
But GOP Govs reject it, punish the poor


States will receive more than $9 in federal money for every $1 they spend to cover
the poor under Obamacare, according to a nonpartisan analysis released Monday.

Expanding Medicaid to cover about 20 million more low-income people will cost over $1 trillion
nationally from 2013 to 2022, said the joint report from the Kaiser Family Foundation and the
Urban Institute. But the analysis found that states will pay just $76 billion of that, a combined
share of roughly 7 percent. The feds will pay the other $952 billion.

Racist Republican governors have resisted the Medicaid expansion, saying it adds an unacceptable
burden to already strained budgets. And the Supreme Court handed the governors a victory this
summer, ruling that states are free to reject the Medicaid deal.

The new analysis was unlikely to change the minds of racist state leaders who have already
rejected the Medicaid expansion, but it may help shape the debate in a majority of states still on the fence.

Among the governors refusing are Rick Perry, Nikki Haley and Bhabi Jindal.
For most others, the choice will come into sharp focus early next year as state legislatures meet.

So, Obamacare would pay 93 percent of the health costs for the poor
but the
GOP responds to this life-saving offer with a quick, "Up yours, nigger." 

They still haven't learned their lesson.

They need to be re-punished in 2014.
