‘Most Antagonistic’ Toward Israel?
That Would Be Reagan’s Def Sec - Caspar Weinburger


When Senator Lindsey Graham (R-Fab) warned that Chuck Hagel “would be the most
antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of Israel in our nation’s history,” either
his memory served him very poorly — or he was simply lying to smear his former Senate
colleague. For whatever Hagel’s perspective on Mideast policy may be, it would be absurd
to compare him with the Secretary of Defense whose hardline hostility toward Israel became
notorious during the Reagan administration.
That would be the late Caspar W. Weinberger, of course.
Weinberger, a longtime Reagan confidant, ran the Pentagon from 1981 until 1987, when he
was forced to resign over his involvement in the cover-up of the Iran-Contra affair (a ruinous
scandal that involved the secret sale of missiles to the Iranian mullahs and the illegal transfer
of profits from those sales to the Nicaraguan contra rebels – and that almost sent Weinberger
to prison along with more than a dozen administration officials).
Weinberger developed a reputation not only for opposing Israel’s interests directly but for
seeking to prevent any action, including counter-terrorist operations, that might upset Arab
allies of the United States. 

In other words, Graham is lying.

Why don't we make him pay a price for lying?

Hotter, Drier, Disaster America
Are we already past the tipping point?


Future generations of Americans can expect to spend 25 days a year sweltering in temperatures
above 100F with climate change on course to turn the country into a hotter, drier, and more
disaster-prone place.
In Oklahoma, it was 115 degrees most of the last two summers.

The National Climate Assessment has provided the fullest picture to date of the real-time effects
of climate change on US life, and the most likely consequences for the future.
The 1,000-page report, the work of the more than 300 government scientists and outside experts,
was unequivocal on the human causes of climate change, and on the links between climate change
and extreme weather.
"Climate change is already affecting the American people," the draft report said. "Certain types of
weather events have become more frequent and/or intense including heat waves, heavy downpours
and in some regions floods and drought. Sea level is rising, oceans are becoming more acidic, and
glaciers and Arctic sea ice are melting."

I have a brother in law in Houston.
He said the last two summers were such a drought, most of the trees died.

Now when the wind blows, giant trees fall because their bases are dried and brittle.

Clearly, God is punishing Texas.

Obama's Immigration Plans
Taking time away from his war on pot...

Obama plans to push Congress to move quickly in the coming months on an ambitious
overhaul of the immigration system that would include a path to citizenship for most of
the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country, senior administration officials said last week.

Obama and Senate Democrats will propose the changes in one comprehensive bill, they said,
resisting efforts by some Republicans to break the overhaul into smaller pieces - separately
addressing young illegal immigrants, migrant farmworkers or highly skilled foreigners - which
might be easier for reluctant members of their party to accept.
The president and Democrats will also oppose measures that do not allow immigrants
who gain legal status to become American citizens one day, the officials said.

Subject: Cali Senators fight Filibuster Reform

The US Senate is going to take up the issue of reforming the Filibuster so that a
minority of Republicans can't dominate the majority that was elected by the people.

But standing in the way of this needed reform are the two senators from California,
Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein. Both of these senators have complained about
how the Republicans filibuster everything and they keep anything meaningful from
being passed. Now there is a chance to fix the problem and they are standing in the way.

I'm beginning to wonder if they are sincere or if this is just politics as usual as the
People suffer so these senators can play their ridiculous games. I'm asking people
call on Boxer and Feinstein to get out of the way and reform the Senate.

Subject: Al Franken

Hi Bart,

I'm not surprised Norm Coleman would say this:
“He’s been pretty much invisible. In that sense he hasn’t created a
 lot of enemies. I don’t know if that’s his strategy, but it’s a pretty good strategy if it is.”

The reason Al Franken hasn't made a lot of enemies is because he's smart and he has been doing
good work for all Americans including Veterans, Women, GLBT rights, protecting the Environment. 
He hasn't been working on bullshit like Coleman did getting us into wars and prosecuting the UN.

I think he is unbeatable.  I don't think the Republican party can find a fit candidate just as they
were unable to run against Sen Amy Klobuchar last November.

Some of Franken’s most recently sponsored bills include...

    S. 3586 (112th): Recruiting Individuals to Drive Our Elders Act of 2012
    S. 3557 (112th): Arbitration Fairness for Students Act
    S.Res. 552 (112th): A resolution recognizing the month of October 2012 as “National Principals Month”.
    S. 3494 (112th): A bill to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to qualify ...
    S. 3463 (112th): Medicare Diabetes Prevention Act of 2012
    S. 3447 (112th): Disability Pension Fairness Act
    S. 3436 (112th): Infant and Toddler Care Improvement Act

Voting Record From Jul 2009 to Jan 2013, Franken missed 2 of 965 roll call votes, which is 0.2%.
This is better than the median of 2.0% among the lifetime records of senators currently serving.
Thank you for your service Bart!

Lottery Winner Murdered
Killer was thisclose to getting away with it


On June 26, Khan held an oversized $1 million check and recalled his joy upon playing
the "$3 million Cash Jackpot!" game, where tickets sell for $30 apiece.
"I scratched the ticket, then I kept saying, 'I hit a million!' over and over again," Khan said.
The plan was to use the money for his mortgage, paying off bills, a donation to St. Jude's Hospital.
According to WGN, that check was issued July 19, but Khan never got to spend it.

I heard from Stephen the artist.

He suggested we drop the expectations for bidding down to $50.
Plus, he said he's not Native American and his art isn't, either.
It's just a style of art he likes.

Jodie Foster's Speech - WTF?
She wasn't drunk - what was she?


Although no one is totally sure what Jodie Foster actually meant
in her so-called coming out speech at Sunday's Golden Globes,
it was easily the most discussed moment of the night.
Jodie Foster came out. But wasn't she out already?
Jodie Foster hints at retirement. But then she promised
she would "never stop acting."
One thing she did make perfectly clear: Jodie Foster is single.
Mostly, the speech was an emotional, angry and eloquent window
into what it's like for one of those lucky--or unlucky--enough to
spend their lives in the public eye.

Her diction was too clear for her to have been drunk - but what was going on?
She wasn't making sense for what seemed like the longest time.
Seems like some friend should've stepped up and told her to cut it short.

BTW, Tina and Any were funny as hell.
I wouldn't mind seeing them emcee a bunch of awards shows.

Jodie Foster publicly comes out as gay
She did no such thing - why would you say that?

"While I'm feeling all confessional, I just have a sudden urge to say something
I haven't ever really been able to air in public that I'm a little nervous about,
but maybe not quite as nervous as my publicist ... .
"But I'm just going to put it out there. Loud and proud, right? And I'm going to need
your support. I am single," she said to laughter. "Yes, I am! I am single. I'm kidding,
but not really. Thank you for the enthusiasm. Can I get a wolf whistle or something?"

"I'm kidding but not really?"

What's a sane person supposed to do with that mish-mash of words?

It's hardly "coming out" if you can't force yourself to say the words.

 Subject: last issue's Mystery Car    Link

Bart, the car is a 1933 DeSoto Custom Convertible Sedan.

The Hint is more of a problem.  It's a 1933 DeSoto Standard 4-door Sedan
(but I don't think those horns are standard.) The Tommy Guns and bullet holes
say "gangster," but it seems to me gangsters and cops preferred the speed of a flathead Ford.

Oh, I get it -- it was in the Bonnie and Clyde movie!

Hey, Bart. It's The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens

The next word following "immortal" is the name of the dude whose name is part of
the name of this novel by Charles Dickens, a hardbound copy of which given to me
by my mum as a Christmas present in 1969 when I was just 14 years of age.

I have it open before me right now as reference, with said word and dude being Pickwick
and said novel being The Pickwick Papers.  This part of the opening sentence in Chapter One,
"The Pickwickians," is in the first three lines of the opening paragraph, itself being a ten-line
sentence in this 1960 edition, at the top of the page of which is an illustration above the chapter
heading of six gentlemen at a long boardroom table, one of whom whom I assume to be Samuel
Pickwick, Esq., himself, standing on a chair addressing the other five, pipe smoke drifting over their heads.
