We're doing something new - Tally is my co-host today.  (you all know Tally)

What does a co-host do?
Well, she picked today's Mystery Car, Mystery Celebrity, Mystery City and
History Mystery, she chose a story or two, a toon or two, and link here and there.
Her choices added a little perspective and lightened my load a little.

Let's hear it for Tally, apparently enjoying an LA Galaxy soccer cupcake...?

GOP Needs to Change, Won't
  by Jeremiah Goulka via TomDispatch


Since the election, I’ve spent my time listening to GOP pundits, operators, and voters.
While the Party busily analyzes the results, its leaders and factions are already out front,
pushing their own long-held opinions and calling for calm in the face of onrushing problems.
Do any of their proposals exhibit a willingness to make the kind of changes the GOP will need
to attract members of the growing groups that the GOP has spent years antagonizing like Hispanics,
Asian Americans, unmarried women, secular whites, and others?

In a word: no.

ha ha
Instead, from my informal survey, it looks to this observer (and former Republican) as if the party
is betting all its money on cosmetic change. Think of it as the Botox Solution. It wants to tweak its
talking points slightly and put more minority and female Republicans on stage as spokespeople.
Many in the GOP seem to believe that this will do the trick in 2014 and beyond. Are they deluded?
You’ve heard the expression “putting lipstick on a pig,” haven’t you?

We sure have.

This has become my favorite topic - how does the GOP come back?

The answer is - they don't.
Everyone knows the first thing you do with a problem is admit it exists.
For the Republicans, that's not going to happen.

They're going to have to lose AT LEAST one more, maybe two more, presidential elections
because changing would be admitting they were wrong and they are not going to admit that.

The Pigboys and the Teabaggers are running things now and they're not admitting shit!
The GOP will do their best to muzzle themselves but in the 2016 primaries, the snarling dog
with the wildest rhetoric is going to get the nomination and Hillary is going to make him moo.

After they lose in 2016 they're going to ask themselves, "What can we do to come back?"
but they'll still have Pigboys and Teabaggers so Hillary wins 66 states and is re-elected.

It's as clear as Lake Concha.

Russia: Assad Losing Control

Finally, someone is addressing the problem


Syrian rebels are gaining ground and might win, Russia's Middle East envoy said on Thursday,
in the starkest such admission from a major ally of President al-Assad in 20 months of conflict.

"One must look the facts in the face," Russia's state-run RIA quoted Mikhail Bogdanov as saying.
"Unfortunately, the victory of the Syrian opposition cannot be ruled out."

Bogdanov, a deputy foreign minister and the Kremlin's special envoy for Middle East affairs,
said the Syrian government was "losing control of more and more territory" and Moscow was
preparing to evacuate Russian citizens if necessary.

I've never been a crazy dictator so I can't understand why they all think this way.
"I'd rather die like a dog in the street (or like Gadaffy with a stick up his ass)
 than leave
with my family and $50 billion dollars and buy a tropical island
 and live like a king until I die of old age."

 Assad wants to kill thousands of his countrymen in a
 battle he can't win and then die like a dog in the street.

If women ruled the world, that would happen less..

Subject: Pot Smokers Get Nod to Light Up

The strange thing about Obama's war on pot is that he doesn't (or didn't) appear to be doing it
for any kind of political gain. I never heard him mention it in any of his campaign speeches.

My guess is they already call him "The Food Stamp President."
Maybe he doesn't want to be called "The Doper President"
but all he needs to do is what Bush did - just do nothing.

When they ask, "Are you going to conduct raids on Colorado and Washington?"
he should reply, "I'm busy trying to create jobs and shrink the size of government."

The GOP won't be running that quote in their ads and it tells Colorado and Washington
that's he's NOT about to go crazy and arrest a bunch of state-sanctioned shopkeepers.

Subject: Debt Ceiling False Threat

The debt ceiling threat is a false threat that for some reason both Democrats and Republicans
are buying into. They say that only Congress has the authority to raise the debt limit and Republicans
are using that to take America hostage to try to destroy Medicare and Social Security. And for some
strange reason the Democrats are buying into it. But it's a false threat.

There are two reasons why this debt ceiling vote isn't necessary. one reason is the 14th amendment
which says, "The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts
incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion,
shall not be questioned." But that's not the only reason. When past members of Congress passed budgets
that were out of balance they knew that it would increase the debt. Thus by voting to spend the money
Congress already voted to increase the debt ceiling. They do not need to vote on it a second time.

It's bad enough that the Republicans hold us hostage but it's even worse that the Democrats are also
buying into this illusion and using it to create artificial fiscal cliffs where the "compromise" is to start
the process of ending Social Security and Medicare. I'm beginning to think that Dems are just pretending
to be for the middle class while caving into the demands of the rich. We will see by what they do if they
are really with The People or if it's just so much bull spit.
  Marc Perkel

Polls show IF we go off the fiscal cliff, the GOP will get the blame.

If the Democrats had half a brain-cell between them (what are the odds?) they could use
this advantage to force the GOP into doing something Left-handed, but nooooooo.

I'm sure our side will settle for a tie since we're in the lead.

Banksters Will NOT be Prosecuted
They laundered money for the Mexican mob


According The Guardian:  HSBC bank processed cash for Mexico's Sinaloa cartel, regarded as the most
powerful and deadly drug gang in the world, among others. At least $881m in drug trafficking money was
laundered throughout HSBC accounts. In order to handle the "staggering amounts of cash", the bank even
widened the windows at some branches to allow tellers to accept larger boxes of money.

First of all,
"Banksters not Prosectuted" isn't news  because they never are.
"Bankster Presecuted" is a headline you'll never see under the Obama administration.

Under Obama, when you get caught, you pay a fine
and you continue laundering for the Mexican mob.

Obama's too busy chasing pot smokers and poker players to worry about the millionsare bankers
teaming up with the AK47-toting narco-terrorists who behead people in the fucking street.

How did Obama's priorities get so screwed up?

 Subject: fund-raising idea

Bart, there are prob a lot of artists that visit your site….
How about if we each donate one pc of work for you to auction off?

A photo print……or a sketch…. could be a good way to raise some $$$$$$$$ for the site.
I wish I could send cash but biz is slow and I have 3 kids to put food on.   ha ha
  Mario the Photographer

Mario, that's a good idea.
The artists would get some exposure, too.

 Click  Here  to see  additional donated art.

BTW, I'm lost about how to handle this - anyone got any ideas?

 Subject: No Art Auction on EBay

Good god man, don’t do that!  Lolz   They’ll republican your profit.

It’d be so much easier and better for your bottom line to do a silent auction via your website. 
Just setup a page with the pictures of things available for auction. 

Link to the artist’s site so the bidder knows we aren’t liars and TeaBaggers. 
Post an end date to bidding.  Post a link to your email that fills the subject line
with the name of the artist (so you know what they are wanting).

Have people email directly with a bid.

At the end date, the biggest number wins. 
They pay you, you email us, we ship.  The end.

Ebay can suck it.  I hate Ebay.

I like that idea.
Please re-send your art pictures unless I already have them posted 

If you sent a link and said, "Pick something," I will.
Maybe next issue we'll get started on this.
Thanks to Kathy!

Subject: Obama has a Pot Problem

Hi Bart,

Here is a Young Turks Video of Michele Leonhart testifying to Congress. 
I think Obama kept here (at DEA) because her name is Michele! 
She does not know what she is talking about.

I think the writing is on the wall.  Prohibition is ending.
Mary in Seattle   (Come visit anytime)

Remember when then-LA Police Chief Daryl Gates said, "A man selling pot does
more damage than a man with a machine gun at high noon in Times Square?"

There are still some dinosaurs who believe that crazy talk
and they damn sure don't belong in positions of power.

Surely Obama is smarter than that...

Bart, that’s the first line of “From Here to Eternity” by James Jones.

From Doug, from Wikipedia:

"Jones packs a hell of a lot into that first line. He tells you it's summer, he tells you it's morning,
he tells you you're on an Army post with a soldier who's obviously leaving for someplace,
and he gives you a thumbnail description of his hero.  That's a good opening line."

Subject: how to end your fund-raiser 

Bart, I will match the donations you get in the next week up to $1,000.
If you raise $400, that's what I'll send - I'll trust you - but either way
the fund-raiser would end in a week - do we have deal?
(pillar, withheld)

I agree - maybe that way we can go out with a bang.
Last day of the 2012 fund-raiser will be Dec 21st.

Fundraiser to Keep Going is worth saving, right?

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.
We might end up doing a "Last 90 days of Bartcop" -  that'd be sad.
