Dick Armey's Attempted Coup
I'd say his coup was very successful


The day after Labor Day, just as campaign season was entering its final frenzy, FreedomWorks,
the Washington-based tea party organization, went into free fall.
Dick Armey, the group's chairman and a former House majority leader, walked into the group's
Capitol Hill offices with his wife, Susan, and an aide holstering a handgun at his waist. The aim was
to seize control of the group and expel Armey's enemies: The gun-wielding assistant escorted
FreedomWorks' top two employees off the premises, while Armey suspended several others
who broke down in sobs at the news.
The coup lasted all of six days. By Sept. 10, Armey was gone - with a promise of $8 million - and the
five ousted employees were back. The force behind their return was Richard J. Stephenson, a reclusive
Illinois millionaire who has exerted increasing control over one of Washington's most influential
conservative grass-roots organizations.
Stephenson, the founder of the for-profit Cancer Treatment Centers of America and a director
on the FreedomWorks board, agreed to commit $400,000 per year over 20 years in exchange
for Armey's agreement to leave the group.

Why didn't they call the cops?

"Hello, Police?  A madman with a gun says I have to leave my job.
 Can you hurry right over and cuff this bastard and put him behind bars?"

Celebrating Jesus and Guns

  by Michael Moore


After watching the deranged, delusional NRA press conference on Friday, it was clear that
the Mayan prophecy had come true. Except the only world that was ending was the NRA's.
Their bullying power to set gun policy in this country is over. The nation is repulsed by the
massacre in Connecticut, and the signs are everywhere: a basketball coach at a post-game
press conference; the Republican Joe Scarborough; a pawn shop owner in Florida; a gun
buy-back program in New Jersey; a singing contest show on TV, and the conservative
gun-owning judge who sentenced Jared Loughner.
So here's my little bit of holiday cheer for you:
These gun massacres aren't going to end any time soon.
I'm sorry to say this. But deep down we both know it's true. That doesn't mean we
shouldn't keep pushing forward – after all, the momentum is on our side. I know all
of us – including me – would love to see the president and Congress enact stronger
gun laws. We need a ban on automatic AND semiautomatic weapons and magazine
clips that hold more than 7 bullets. We need better background checks and more
mental health services. We need to regulate the ammo, too.

Is Mike forgetting we live in a nation of morons?  Check this, from today's paper.

So, idiot America wants tighter gun laws, BUT NOT ON ASSAULT WEAPONS?

What should we get tougher with - two-shot derringers?

Clinton Flunked Econ Badly
says some handjob named Dean Baker 


The truth is often painful but nonetheless it is important that we live in the real world.
Just as little kids have to come to grips with the fact that there is no Santa Claus, it is
necessary for millions of liberals, including many who think of themselves as highly
knowledgeable about economic matters, to realize that President Clinton's policies
sent the economy seriously off course.
In Washington it is common to tout the budget surpluses of the Clinton years as some
momentous achievement, as though the point of economic policy is to run budget surpluses.
Of course the point of economic policy is to produce an economy that improves the lives
of the people in a sustainable way. Clinton badly flunked this test.

He's right - things were much better under Bush the Torturer.

Clinton tripled the stock market, balanced the budget (with a surplus!) created 24 million
jobs and never sent a man into battle who didn't come home alive - so he was a bad president.

I assume this handjob is starting the anybody-but-Hillary-in-2016 parade?

Breaking News

President Barack Obama will send Congress a proposal for a scaled-back agreement to
avoid some of the fiscal cliff, according to Republican and Democratic sources.

The president cut short his Christmas vacation in Hawaii and the U.S. Senate reconvened,
with the deadline for going over the fiscal cliff just four days away.

The House remains on Christmas break, but members say they could be called back if needed.

So, the President cuts his vacation short while the do-nothing House barkers go home?

If the Teabaggers keep this up they might get a reputation
of not wanting to be seen working with the Black guy

Did Gregory Break the Law?
Rove's dancing partner showed illegal magazine on Meet the Whore


Washington police are investigating whether NBC's David Gregory broke the law by
holding up what appeared to be a 30-round gun magazine on Sunday's Meet the Whore
despite being denied permission by police to bring the weaponry on the show.

It is illegal in the district to possess a "large capacity ammunition feeding device."

Gwendolyn Crump of the DC cops, told ABC News, "NBC contacted us inquiring if they
could utilize a high capacity magazine for their segment. NBC was told "That's illegal"
and their request was denied. This matter is currently being investigated."

Since the interview, conservative media and gun rights activists said that Gregory appeared
to have violated the district's gun law. Police subsquently confirmed they were investigating.

ha ha

Talk radio and the guns nuts want Gregory busted on a weapons charge.

Isn't that precious?

Why did they ask for the cops permission?
This way the cops know for a fact that NBC knew they were breaking the law.

That's not too bright.
When I'm about to break some law, I don't call the cops first.

Cowboys Lose another Heartbreaker
Saints hold off Cowboys rally for 34-31 OT win


The Dallas Cowboys lost control of their playoff fate Sunday - for about three hours.

Drew Brees threw for 446 yards and three touchdowns and led a drive ending in a winning
20-yard field goal in overtime, and the Saints beat the Cowboys 34-31 in a game that turned out
to be meaningless to the postseason hopes of both teams.

The Saints knew they couldn't make the playoffs. Minnesota's win over Houston took care of that.

The Cowboys lamented the loss in a third straight game decided on the final play, but the Giants
falling 33-14 at Baltimore later Sunday left Dallas in essentially the same position. With a win at
Washington in next weekend's finale - the Cowboys go to the postseason as NFC East champions.

For the third time this season, the loveable losers got their hearts broken.

After trailing 31-17, the Cowboys scored twice in the last 4 minutes to force the game into overtime. 
Cowboys fans were hopping around like they were from Kansas City.

Dallas No Longer America's Team


The Dallas Cowboys are no longer America’s Team.
That moniker now belongs to the discount double-checking Green Bay Packers,
according to voters surveyed by Public Policy Polling, per
The Packers received 22 percent of the votes, twice as many as the loser Cowboys.
The next most popular franchises were the Chicago Bears, New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Each club received 8 percent of the votes.
According to the survey, the Cowboys are America’s least favorite team,
garnering 22 percent of the vote, twice as many as the Bears.

Hi Bart,

Had to ask:

Are you a "gun nut?" 

No, I'm a gun owner - there's a difference.

Why does your website have gun banner ads? 

Because Google can't figure out what "left-leaning" means.

I saw that "Concealed Carry" ad there on your site today.

I hope you clicked on it.
If you did, it helped me and cost the gun nuts money.

It really bothers me. 
Please post your reply at your site for everyone to see.

Bart --  Interestingly, the past couple of days I'd been thinking exactly what
Mario the Photographer suggested so I attached 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...

Led Zeppelin Kennedy Honors


Wednesday night's Kennedy Center Honors concluded with a tribute performance of
"Stairway to Heaven" that brought the audience to its feet and tears to the eyes of Led Zeppelin.
The 1971 song, written by Robert Plant and Jimmy Page for the group's fourth album,
was performed by Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, backed by two bowler-wearing choirs,
and an instrumental accompaniment that included brass and strings. Jason Bonham was on drums.
Clearly misty-eyed (he was seen wiping more than one tear from his eyes) Plant watched
the stirring tribute with Led Zeppelin smiling and nodding with bandmates Page and John Paul Jones.
The performance ended a musical tribute to the British-born band that included Led Zeppelin
classics performed by Lenny Kravitz, Kid Rock, and the Foo Fighters.

Subject: Zeppelin?

We all have our favorites in music. Our choices are pretty subjective.
You and millions of others pick Led Zeppelin as best band. That's fair enough.
Best drummer? I'll agree with that.
Best guitar player? I wouldn't say so, but I won't argue with you there.
But best singer? Are you kidding? He might be adequate on some songs,
but a lot of the time, Plant's caterwauling is just unlistenable.

It's ruined many serious attempts I've made to appreciate the band.
To each his own.
Happy New Year!
 Dan L

At least Plant was singing.

Some "singers" like Mick Jagger are doing more talking than singing.
