Hillary caught Faking Blood Clot
Those Clintons will do anything to avoid responsibility


Doctors treating Hillary Clinton for a blood clot say the clot formed in her head
but they stress that they are confident she will make a full recovery.

Clinton's doctors say the blood clot did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage.
The clot is located in the vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear.

Clinton's doctors are treating her with blood thinners. They say she will be released once
the medication dose has been established. They said she is making excellent progress.

The illness has kept her out of the public view since Dec. 7, and has started to raise questions:

Did you see that undiplomatic piece-of-shit John Bolton on FOX News?
He gave his Nancy Grace Guarantee that Hillary was FAKING her illness.

Republicans are not only mean-spoirited assholes, they also don't have the brains to play their
cards in an intelligent matter. You can't go on TV and give your nasty little Nancy Grace Guarantee
about something you have no knowledge about - yet they do.

If America's whore press had any accountability, John Bolton would be f-ing toast right now
but the GOP is full of assholes and blowhards and insane bastards so Bolton doesn't look that bad.

...which is why Hillary should coast to an easy victory in 2016.

Teabaggers Surrender on Cliff

After four years, Obama wins a negotiation


Congress' excruciating, extraordinary New Year's Day approval of a compromise averting a
prolonged tumble off the fiscal cliff hands Obama most of the tax boosts on the rich that he
campaigned on. It also prevents GOP snarling dogs from facing blame for blocking tax cuts for
most American households, though most dogs parted ways with Boehner and opposed the measure.

Capping a holiday season political spectacle that featured a shitload of highs and lows, the GOP-run
House voted final approval for the measure late Tuesday. That came after the Democratic-led Senate
used a wee-hours 89-8 roll call to assent to the bill, belying the partisan brinkmanship that colored
much of the path to the final deal.

"A central promise of my campaign for president was to change the tax code that was too skewed
towards the wealthy at the expense of working middle-class Americans," Obama said before flying
to Hawaii to resume his holiday break. "Tonight we've done that."

So, a shot of Chinaco for Obama not caving like he always does.
Maybe now we have a president instead of a mouse in the White House

Ann Curry Begs NBC..."Release Me"
Cold-hearted NBC trying to kill her career


Ann Curry is begging NBC bosses to let her out of her contract
so she can accept a high-profile anchor job at CNN.
Curry is reportedly earmarked for Anderson Cooper's coveted 8pm slot
at the rival TV station by her former Today show boss, Jeff Zucker,
who will take over as president of CNN Worldwide in February.

Three points here:
If there's a TV network in the news for screwing up - you know it's NBC.
   They would kill to have the credibility and stability of

Matt Lauer says his life is shit now - when he walks the streets of New York,
   people come up to him and say, "Shame on you for firing Ann Curry - Asshole!!"

This Jeff Zucker guy? They say he's going to clean house at CNN.
   He's not going to tweak anything, he's coming in with a f-ing chainsaw so let's hope
   he fires Douche Blitzer (CNN's biggest problem) and Jeanie Mose, the unfunny
   woman with the needs-to-clear-her-throat voice who's been on my nerves since
   the day CNN began way back in 1865.

Subject: funds

Hey Bartster, just a loose, working, thought here:
Buying through the Amazon link doesn't cost anyone anything.
Maybe if you gave your "dozens of readers" (lol) some personal incentive to use it,
participation would increase? Maybe if you offered to post the name and hometown,
and/or (maybe not) picture  - of folks who made purchases thru your Amazon link,
more people would use it. Just to see their own name mentioned on your page/ + the internets. 

Something like, "If you use the Amazon link, send me your name, and what you bought"
and I'll make you famous.. you get what I'm saying. "Hey Bart, I bought" ( x-box 360 ;-) 
My name is, Joe Blow (me) from, NJ. ...Maybe more people would use the Amazon link? 

Idk, maybe, if people are as vain and shallow as I am, (and I think they are)
it might generate a few more pennies? Anyway, just a thought. Hope you and
your family have a healthy, and very happy 2013.
 All the best, Kip, in NJ.

I could certainly do that with larger purchases.
Since we stopped the fundraiser my PayPal and mailbox has been crickets.

Sure, let's give that a try.
If you buy something substantial, send me the details and I'll publish them.

Subject: Dallas Cowboys/America's Team

Right off the bat, I am a proud and long-time Dallas Cowboys fan. At the age of 8 years old
(turn 45 next month) I cried and cried after Jackie Smith dropped that TD pass in the end zone
and the Cowboys lost that SB to the stinking Steelers.

Now to the subject at silly ass voter poll with heavy voting from "nothing-else-to-do-with-my-time"
Green Bay fans, on suck-ass ESPN can take away the moniker "America's Team" from the Dallas Cowboys.

No voter poll gave it to the team and no voter poll can take it away. If people are aware of the history of the
Cowboys and how the nickname came about, then there is no need to explain but just in case folks don't know,
the National Football League gave the name "America's Team" to the Dallas Cowboys via NFL Films.

Just the mere fact that the other NFL cities are so jealous that they have these asinine polls wishing that their
team had the Dallas Cowboys team nickname says it all. The Cowboys are "America's Team" no matter
how much the rest of the NFL hates it. There is a reason that the Cowboys consistently have high TV ratings
even when the team is not playing so good, and there is a reason that they made movies about and have reality
shows focused on the Dallas Cowboy's cheerleaders. The reason is that when it comes to football, the Cowboys
are "America's Team". If Jerry Jones, THE worst general manager in all of pro sports, can manage to get the
Cowboys winning again... Go Cowboys!!!

I haven't seen the evidence that other teams wish they had the Cowboys name.
And maybe their ratings are high because so many people enjoy watching them lose?

Plus, I'd think Jerry Jones would be loved in Dallas.
How many owners are willing to spend whatever it takes to build a winning team?
How many owners are willing to spend the money for a top-shelf stadium?

BTW, thanks for taking the ribbing calmly.

Subject: Zep

Dear Bart:
I agree with Dan L.  I’ve tried to like Led Zeppelin, and do like a few songs,
but mostly I can’t stand the high pitched vocals.

Why knock Mick Jagger?  More people will know more of his songs word for word
in 50 years than anyone else in history up to now.   I’d put the Stones, The Beatles,
The Who, The Dead, and many others why ahead of Zeppelin, but then I’m not trying
to get donations from people with different musical tastes.

Warm regards,
 Jim W

I was in a hurry when I answered Dan L so thanks for the second chance.
Led Zeppelin has sold 300 million albums - that's more than a lot of records.

When a kid starts singing in a band, he wants to be Plant, not Jagger.
When a kid gets his first guitar, he wants to be Page, not Jeff Beck.
When a kid gets his first set of drums, he wants to be Bonham, not Keith Moon.

Zeppelin also re-wrote the rules.
Before Zeppelin, the house got half the concert revenues.
Zeppelin got 90% and gave the house 10%.

They also owned themselves 100%, meaning no record company weasel
could tell them to change a song or rework the cover art on the album.

I've gotten decades of enjoyment from Zeppelin especially the live shows.
The longer songs were basically jams with pre-arranged signals on how to get back
to the song once the jams were over - so the show was different every night.

If you're a music fan, I hate to see you opt out of that excitement.

Cowboys Lose another Heartbreaker
Redskins hold off Cowboys rally for win
(I wrote that 3 days before the game)


Romo had four interceptions, if you count the one
he threw to Redskin coach Mike Shanahan.

Former Cowboys Rip Hapless Romo


Former Cowboys Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin, now analysts for the NFL Network,
had some strong words for Tony Romo, whose tenure as the Cowboys' quarterback has been disappointing.

In his career, Romo is now 1-6 for the Cowboys with the playoffs on the line.

"How many times are we going to sit here as fans and say, 'Here we go again?' " Sanders said.
 Tony brings me to the same situation at the conclusion of every year. Take a picture, this date,
 and see if we're playing the same picture next year. We always think it's going to get better,
 but it's the same-old same-old."

Cowboys Vow to Stick with Butterfingers Romo
He's got more job security that Bo Obama


The Dallas Cowboys have missed the playoffs in three of the past four seasons,
but head coach Jason Garrett believes the team does not need to make a change at quarterback.
Garrett says Tony Romo is the future of the team.

If you're a Cowboy hater (like most of America) this is great news.

Owner Jerry Jones and Coach Jason Garrett both LOVE their quarterback,
which for me is a gift from Baby Jesus.

 "Merrty Christmas, Bart!"

 Thank you, Baby Jesus.

CNN viewers stunned as Kathy Griffin tries to perform oral sex
on Anderson Cooper live on New Year's Eve broadcast

 Link with Video

For six years she has been shocking audiences across America as they prepare to ring in the new year.
But this year, Kathy Griffin really surpassed herself during CNN's live New Year's Eve broadcast
when she simulated oral sex on co-host Anderson Cooper as well as making jokes about his 'sack'.
Even when Cooper had to take a minute from the upbeat, lighthearted show for some serious news
on the fiscal cliff negotiations in Washington, Griffin told him it should be called 'the fisting cliff'.
Viewers continued to be shocked and appalled at the comic's continuous racy jokes and outlandish
behavior - which CNN have come to expect from Griffin.

Gary Tuchman reported live from Eastport, Maine, where the custom on new year's is to
kiss a statue of an eight-foot sardine that they drop from the town's museum.
As the people of Eastport kissed the sardine, Griffin dropped to her knees
and kissed Cooper's crotch over and over again.   

Well, that's not true.  Does anyone think Anderson Cooper would allow
Kathy Griffin (or any person) to kiss his crotch over and over on live TV?

It didn't happen but she tried again and again and again.


It was so damn funny I thought I was going to spew my New Years Eve Chinaco.

For the next half-hour or so, she kept dropping to a baseball catcher position
so Cooper
had no choice but to drop with her to deny her his crotch.

She said, "I'm going down now - you know you want it,"
to which Cooper (Who is gay) replied,  "No, I really don't."

Of course, the people with no sense of humor exploded:

Darcy tweeted: 'I see tasteless, classless fame-whore @kathygriffin was once again
a guttersnipe in search of 15 minutes more on @cnn last night. Gak.'

Dan Strnad wrote: 'A child mimics a gun with his fingers and he's kicked out of school.
Kathy Griffin kisses Coopers crotch on live TV and it's funny.'

Michael Hairston said: 'Kathy Griffin kisses Anderson Cooper's crotch on live TV
.......millions of school children were FORCED to watch this FILTH! IDIOT!'

Nobody was forced to watch anything because if was below the camera line of sight.

Wiselatin commented: 'Just blocked cnn with the parental controls. Griffin is absolutely disgusting.'
Shes been doing this for six years - who tunes in expecting G-rated humor?
It's New Years Eve and everybody's drunk and in a good mood - except Republicans.

Livedwell said: 'CNN is tanking and will do anything for ratings including lewd behavior like this.
Just one of many reasons I don't watch CNN.'

Yeah, that's right. You were offended when you weren't even watching?
To hear you tell it, CNN has turned into non-stop, crystal-clear, close-up HD oral sex.

Maybe the Focus on the Handjob Council could get involved and save us?

BTW, why do they call it Dick Clark's Rocking New Years Eve?
He's dead - why not call it "New Years Eve with Ryan Seafoam?"

Subject: Senate passes bill to continue government spying

With the fiscal cliff looming and senators filibustering everything you would think from
listening to the news that noting is being passed through Congress. But that isn't the case.

As it turns out on Friday the Senate passed an extension of the FISA act to continue to
allow the government to spy in US citizens without a warrant or any form of constitutional
oversight. Even the Congress can't find out what's going on. This was something they
started after 9/11 and even though Bin Laden is dead they still seem to need to have
secret laws and a secret police force that is above the law to illegally spy on us.

Sure shows you where their priorities are.
Obama is as bad as Bush when it comes to following the Constitution.
Only Rand Paul, Ron Wyden and a handful of other Democrats opposed it.

Amazing how some things just sail through while everything else is impossible.

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...

Pot Club Opens in Colorado


With music pumping and flashing lights, members of the recreational pot club lit up in
celebration of the new year — and a new place to smoke legally among friends.

Club 64 in Denver opened at 4:20 p.m. on Monday, with some 200 people signed up.
The opening came less than 24 hours after organizers announced they would charge
a $29.99 admission price for the bring-your-own pot club.

"Look at this!" Chloe Villano exclaimed as the club she created over the weekend opened.
"We were so scared because we didn't want it to be crazy. But this is crazy! People want this."

The private pot dens popped up less than a month after Colorado voted to allow recreational
pot use. Club 64 gets its name from the number of the amendment.

Two Colorado clubs were believed to be the first legal pot dens in the nation. The Denver Post
reported that a similar pot club opened Monday in the small Colorado town of Del Norte.

Colorado's marijuana amendment prohibits public consumption, and smoke-free laws also
appear to ban indoor smokeouts. But Club 64 attorney Robert Corry said private pot dens
are permissible because marijuana isn't sold, nor is it food or drink.

This is progress, but what fun is "bring your own?"

And if it's legal, why can't the club sell it?
I assume they'll eventually get it right - and then tourism will go crazy
