Thurston Didn't Want to be President
Says one of his sons - can you tell them apart?


He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life," says Tagg Romney.
"He had no desire to ... run. If he could have found someone else to take his place
...he would have been ecstatic to step aside.

When Santorum got ahead of him, your daddy spend millions to destroy him.
When Newt won SC,
your daddy spend millions to trash him in Florida.

...and you now claim he'd be estatic to step aside?

Why did your dad spend all year blowing Shelly Adelson and the Koch brothers?
Because he really didn't want to be president?
Or maybe he just likes the taste of meth?

"He is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them,"
Tagg continued. "He has deep faith in God and he loves his country, but he doesn’t love the attention.”

Nobody in the Romney family can lie worth a damn.

Nobody in that family is believable.

Wal-Mart Guns Sales Hot

Making money before the funerals


Prices for handgun magazines are surging on EBay and semi-automatic rifles are sold out
at many money-grubbing Wal-Mart stores.

Wal-Mart, the world's biggest whore, said yesterday that it would continue to sell guns, including
rifles like the one used to kill 20 children in Newtown. By contrast, decent companies like
Dick's Sporting Goods suspended sales of similar guns at its more than 500 stores.

Searches of five kinds of semi-automatic rifles on Wal- Mart's website showed them to be out of stock
at stores in five states, including Pennsylvania, Kansas and Alabama. Wal-Mart doesn't sell guns online,
instead asking customers to input a zip code to see if their local store carries a specific child-killing weapon.

"We remain dedicated to the safe and responsible sale of firearms because we love profit,"
David Tovar, a spokesman for Wal-Mart, seemed to say.

Midnight - 3 AM

Boner - a Wounded Speaker
His own troops refused to follow him


John Boehner is a bloodied House speaker following the startling setback that his own fractious
Republican troops dealt him in their ‘‘fiscal cliff’’ struggle against that awful negro president.
There’s plenty of internal grumbling about Da Boner, especially among conservatives, and lots of
buzzing about whether his leadership post is in jeopardy. But it’s uncertain whether any other House
Republican has the broad appeal to seize the job from Boehner or whether his embarrassing inability
to pass his own bill preventing tax increases on everyone but millionaires is enough to topple him.

"No one will be challenging John Boehner as speaker,’’ predicted John Feehery, who nobody ever heard of.
"No one else can right now do the job of bringing everyone together’’ and unifying House Republicans.

The morning after he yanked the tax-cutting bill from the House floor to prevent certain defeat,
Boehner told reporters he wasn’t worried about losing his job when the new Congress convenes Jan. 3.

‘‘They weren’t taking that out on me,’’ he lied Friday of rank-and-file GOP lawmakers, who despite
begging from Boehner and his lieutenants were shy of providing the 217 votes needed for passage.
"They were dealing with the perception that somebody might accuse them of raising taxes.’’
That "somebody" was Grover Norquist, one of their owners.

Boner could do his country a lot of good by stepping down and giving a goodbye speech saying,
 "These rabid GOP dogs want red meat all the time and they're not interested in making laws."

But why would Boner do something to help his country whem he can remain silent and hang around
and game the system for a few more years and steal even more millions of dollars?

Subject: If everyone had a gun...


There are two things to remember about Israel and guns:

1) Every Israeli citizen has to serve a stint in the military, so they *all* have military training for weapons usage.
2) Israels are *actually* surrounded by enemies. Why on earth would I try to shoot my neighbor
    when there's an actual enemy to worry about?

Some have postulated that the best way to achieve world peace is to fake an alien invasion so that
the world will unite against them (check out this book for an interesting look into such a future:

Just read a stat today that there is one gun for every 50 Israelis. 
In the US, it is almost 1 to 1. 
Also, Israel is cracking down on gun ownership even more recently.

Israeli gun laws 'opposite of US'
There is no full-auto Friday or Ladies night at Israeli gun stores


According to Yaakov Amit, the head of the Security Ministry’s Firearms Licensing Department,
the difference between the gun laws in the US and Israel are as clear as night and day.

“There is an essential difference. In America the right to bear arms is written in the law, here it’s
the opposite... only those who have a license can bear arms and not everyone can get a license.”

Amit said gun licenses are only given out to those who have a reason because they work in security
or law enforcement, or those who live in settlements “where the state has an interest in them being armed.”

Anyone who fits the requirements, is over age 21 and an Israeli resident for more than three years,
must go through a mental and physical health exam, Amit said, then pass shooting exams and courses
at a licensed gun range, as well as background checks by the Public Security Ministry.

Once they order their firearm from a gun store, they are allowed a one-time supply of 50 bullets,
which Amit said they cannot renew.

Portrait of Crazy

Newt Accepts Gay Marriage
The Right would rather die than change


Newt Gingrich is OK with Gay Marriage.
Yes, the same Newt Gingrich who said the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was the
result of godlessness in America
, said today that marriage equality was inevitable and that he
was OK with it. Yes, the same politician who signed a pledge earlier this year vowing to uphold
the institution of marriage, believes that gay marriage will soon be legal across the country.
“It is in every family … It is in every community. The momentum is clearly now in the direction in
finding some way to … accommodate and deal with reality. And the reality is going to be that in a
number of American states — and it will be more after 2014 — gay relationships will be legal, period.”
Gingrich, whose sister has been and will always be gay, said that he didn’t personal believe in
gay marriage but said that gay couples should be able to have the same rights as straight couples.

Well Jeepers, Newt - do you believe in gravity?

How about water freezing at 32 degrees - you believe in that?

Subject: Reality always wins!

Politics these days are very interesting.
The world of reality is in a battle to the death with the world of crazy, and it seems the reality
is winning because crazy is collapsing in on itself. What crazy doesn't realize is that reality always wins.
There is no power in the universe that can go up against reality.

I feel that we as a nation choose reality over crazy in the last election and that members of both parties
need to make a commitment to the American to put reality first. Let us all agree, no matter what party
we identify with, to insist on a reality first process for determining what is the right thing weas a country
should do. That we choose reality and say no to crazy!

Bart --  Interestingly, the past couple of days I'd been thinking exactly what
Mario the Photographer suggested so I thought I'd jump right on board and
attach a couple of photos for you: 

A black and white and a colored drawing -- pick one or use both if you wish.

People tend to be more attracted to color but I prefer my black and whites. 
 I sell my drawings for $200
to give you an idea of the value I place on them.

Hope this idea brings in some cash for you...

Merry Christmas to you, Mrs Bart and the cats...

I hope you don't have any ugly surprises in the New Year. 
Me, I'm waiting for Obamacare to kick in so I can try to get health insurance again. 
For now, I'm on the Republican plan:  don't get sick and, if you do, die quickly
(you've got to love Alan Grayson).

Meanwhile, don't give up hope on Obama. 
Sure, he disappoints more often than we'd like, but I'm hoping he'll do better this time around. 
Not that I think any banker scumbag has to worry about jail time, or anything...

Charlie Rose with Led Zeppelin

11 Minute Video

In 2007, Plant, Page, and Jones took the stage again -- with John Bonham's son Jason on the drums
 -- to perform one last time. The band gave a performance that did not disappoint fans ... or themselves.

"By song number three, I think we knew that ... we were on it," Plant said.

And while the band has no plans to tour, they're confident in their place in rock history.

"It's such a textbook for young musicians," Page said, before adding,
"I would say ... without being conceited here ... but yeah, it was the best band."

If you went by best guitar player, they'd win for best band.
If you went by best drummer, they'd win for best band.
If you went by best singer, they'd win for best band.
If you went by best utility player, they'd win for best band..

Put them all in the same band and you can't even name who's number two.

Hi Bart,

That's either
the first line from "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens,
or else it's a quotation by a TV announcer on November 7, 2000, when it was
first declared that AL Gore had won Florida and the election, followed a bit later
by the Monkey's cousin announcing that no, really, W. had won Florida and the election.

Olivia Fired from Pawn Stars

Olivia Black was stunned when she was abruptly fired from Pawn Stars after raunchy photos of her
were released and now she has broken her silence about the axing saying she wants her job back!

The saucy brunette was shockingly fired on Wednesday from the History Channel reality show after
her photos from the soft-core site were published by The National Enquirer and she
says she is not giving up on her television career.

“I do not know why I was fired from the show,” Olivia saod.  “I got a call and the production company
told me that my services were no longer needed on the show.”

What's going on here?

Dear Father Bart.

Forgive me for I have sinned.
It's been over 2 years since my last donation.

I was unemployed for a year but am getting things back in order with a new job(at less pay of course).
I couldn't imagine having my morning coffee without my Bartcop.

It's nice to start the day smiling. One of my favorite comments of yours is when
someone buys something from Amazon and you comment: "I think everyone should...."
Someone once bought a bunch of baby food and you wrote
"I think everyone should feed their kids"
Still makes me laugh.

Don't need any Bart goodies and I'm glad you got someone to match donations.
Wishing you, your better half, and the kitties a nice holiday.

 Nobody got former top TV show NYPD Blue cop Charlotte Ross

And her distinction?
On a Feb. 25, 2003 episode of NYPD Blue, Charlotte Ross was nude for 16 seconds.
Not sure what ABC was up to at the time, but it's the only intentional nude scene I can
remember from a mainstream network during prime time - and it cost them.

January 29 2007 - The FCC fined ABC $1.43 million for broadcasting indecent programming
on "NYPD Blue." It was the
second-largest indecency fine against a television broadcaster ever.
The agency proposed a
$27,500 fine against 52 ABC-owned and affiliate stations in the Central
and Mountain time
zones, which broadcast the episode before 10 p.m. - the cutoff for the FCC's
authority to
police the airwaves. The episode, shown Feb. 25, 2003, included a scene featuring
a woman
and a young boy. In the scene, the woman disrobes in a bathroom and the boy walks in
without knocking. She sees him and covers up but it took her 10-12 seconds to put things away.   Link

What was ABC thinking?

End of the fund-raiser

Today is issue 2990.  There was a time a while back
where I thought I might go to 3000 issues and call it a day.

But, the fund-raiser did better than I thought it would.
My PO Box even saw some action.

BTW, why did we need a fund-raiser?  People are hurting.

I considered each donation as a vote for me to continue swinging the hammer.
I felt a little like Sally Field  :)

Thanks to everyone who sent a donation and to everyone
would've sent a donation if they had anything to spare.
Thanks also to those who sent matching funds.
