New Bill: Let States Legalize Pot
Can they bitch if it's their option?

Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) and Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) want to end the prohibition of marijuana
and begin to regulate it as we do alcohol and cigarettes. Their new bill would remove marijuana from
Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, shifting its regulation to the renamed Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Marijuana and Firearms.

But there are big-money interests trying to stop it - can you guess who they are?

There is one big reason why Congress is not likely to take this issue up: They don’t want to "bother"
the corporations that they rely on for funding,” writes Open Congress‘ Donny Shaw.
While some industries — like tobacco and agriculture — support marijuana legalization,
the pharmaceutical industry opposes it.

Isn't that cold, hard proof that marijuana works?

The drug companies are afraid sales of their toxic chemical drugs will fall if
a cheaper,
non-addictive (and better tasting) drug can do the job better with fewer negative side-effects.

Know-Nothings Control the South
  by Gene Lyons

For as long as I’ve lived in Arkansas, people like the now-famous state senator Jason Rapert
have made most of the noise and lost most of the elections. Now they’ve come to power,
courtesy of Southern Republicans’ cult-like rejection of President Obama and large infusions
of corporate campaign cash. And with the state legislature in session, the tragi-comedy is under way.
It’s happening all across the South. Sample news story: “GOP approved a bill titled ‘The Church
Protection Act of 2013′…85-8, to permit concealed handguns in churches and other houses of worship.”
Because Jesus, of course, was all about smiting them dead before thou art smitten.
Anyway, “famous” may be an exaggeration with regard to Sen. Rapert. But a YouTube clip of
the man haranguing a 2011 Tea Party gathering about his anger at “minorities” running the country
has gotten Arkansas lots of unfavorable national attention. Meanwhile, his indignant, if not
particularly honest, denials have succeeded only in generating more ill will and bad feeling.

 Subject: drones

Duh......Remember " free fire " zones in Vietnam?
That worked really well for us there.
Drones are just the more modern version.

Still winning hearts and minds in Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia.

Albie, I'm not sure I get your point.

My point was - if they have bows and arrows and we have gunpowder,

we should probably use our advantage while we have it.

The decision to go to war and with whom should be the question,
not the decision whether or not to use available technology.

I hate America's Whore Media

Our idiotic whore media thinks the US Post Office suspending Saturday delivery
of letters is THE biggest, most important story in the history of mankind.

They ALL jumped on that stupid bandwagon as if it was as important as the possibility
that Lance Armstrong may have been doping 10 years ago for some silly-ass bicycle race.

And to make it worse, the unimaginative bastards ALL started their report with,
"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the
  swift completion of their appointed rounds - but Saturday delivery is another matter."

They ALL patted themselves on the back on how goddamn clever they were, too.
They thought that was THE most imaginative and skillful writing that anyone has read.
Didn't any of these writers have a writing class in grade school?

It's like the third-grade morons who usually write news stories all had the flu
so they brought in the second-grade news-writing morons to write their copy.

Like that idiotic David Sirota "news" story yesterday, American news writers
are NOT concerned in the least with delivering the news or educating the readers.

No, it's all about how fucking cute they can be and I fucking
hate  cute news stories
and I double hate it when they lead off the news with inconsequential shit like this.

Notice that the USPS will still deliver junk mail and useless shit on Saturdays.
And if they had any brains, (should I bother to finish this sentence?) they would
change to a Mon-Wed-Friday deliveries and solve their problems over night, but no,
that would save them too much money so they won't consider it.

Right now, the USPS is losing $16B a year and the braintrusts in charge
have come up with a great plan to just lose $13B next year. 

I realize this will never change.
America's whore media will continue their downward slide till the end of time.

My only consolation is that because of them, some low-IQ Okie can put together
a digital Tequila Treehouse that, by comparison, seems somewhat semi-intelligent.

Thank you, lying, American whore media sellouts, for the career.

This was front page news, just under the
super-important No Letters on Saturday "news."

I need a drink...

School Shootings Linked to Drugs?
Such as Prozac, Ritalin, Luvox, and Paxi

On May 17th, 2000 a House Sub-Committee looked into reported problems with Ritalin.
There are problems with over prescribing, giving samples without proper diagnosis, stealing,
and selling Ritalin in the school yard! Ritalin is an SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor)
in the same category as Prozac, Luvox, Zoloft, and Paxil. With just a little investigation there is
a definite relation between School Violence and kids taking these drugs!

Gun Control Activists quote that there are 30,000 gun deaths a year (1998).
Sixty percent of those, or 18,000 were suicides!

The legislature needs to look at all these Anti-Depressants like Prozac, Ritalin, Luvox, Zoloft,
and Paxil, and take a close look at the side effects and the follow up care that is taking place.a

That Pastor/Waitress Story...
Pastor may have pulled a Hoaxl


In an interview Bell had with Fox 2 St Louis she spoke about the "I give God 10%. Why do you get 18”
comment she left on the receipt. While watching the interview I was shocked by a few of the comments
she made. In the interview she was speaking about what she wrote when she made this statement
“I saw a post by a prominent pastor a couple of weeks ago, he says it was really innocent , and I said
'Wow, how could the gospel go viral like this?"

I believe the story she is speaking of happened last year some time. I remembered this story, so I spent
hours searching for it online, unfortunately due to this story over flooding the internet I was unable to
pinpoint the story. From what I remember it was priest who wrote on his receipt, I am a priest so I don’t
have to tip but I do give you my blessing. Don’t beat me up too bad as I am pulling this from memory,
but I am confident I am close.  As I remember it the receipt was never posted online but the story was
easy to find (nothing I would consider viral) for about a week.

The good news is the cheap, vindictive, lying Pastor Bell might be a liar
but at least she didn't rape any kids, that we know of.

Hi Bart,

That’s a German Messerschmidt Kabinenroller,
I remember seeing some as a kid back in the early sixties.
And the one in the background, right corner, is an Isetta,
probably a BMW Isetta. Remember seeing a few of those as well.

Sometimes you see the effects of states rights when you travel.
One minute you're at a super-clean rest stop on smooth paved roads

Tell your legislators to reform federal marijuana laws.

A recent Gallup poll found that marijuana legalization is supported by a
majority of independent voters,
a majority of people in Western states,
a majority of people in Eastern states, a majority of people
in the Midwest,
and almost a majority of Americans in Southern states

The enemy is ignorance.

Going to Alaska

Mrs Bart has always wanted to go to Alaska and Hawaii.
Thanks to Scott H (Don HO) we got to Hawaii in 2005 and we thought we'd
better go to Alaska before I have to drag an oxygen tank behind my wheelchair.

We bought tickets last year but we kept running into reasons why we couldn't go so
we're trying once again to go - and we're Alaska newbies. Astrocat says March is the

best month for aurora viewing and the weather isn't always freezing - hopefully.

I heard Alaska had something called Matanuska Valley Thuderfuck
but I'm a journalist so I can't say it exists because I've never seen any.

Any Bartcop readers in Seward, Whittier, Homer, Wasilla or Anchorage?

And something new we're trying:
Would you like to sponsor a portion of the trip?
Maybe a tank of gas or a few dollars towards a hotel or a ferry ride or something?
That would get your name in the sure-to-be-fun Alaska Trip Report.

"And the fourth night we stayed at Chena Hot Springs in Fairbanks
  thanks to Greg and Fran and Ducks," type of thing.

So, I'm doing the page today and PayPal calls.
They asked why I wasn't using their  "Buy now, Pay in 6 months" feature.

I told them I wasn't really in the business of selling things, but that people donated
a few sheckles now and then and he assured me that lots of people would donate now
if they knew they had 6 months interest-free to actually come up with the cash.

I have my doubts, but back in 2000 I had doubts about online donations in general
so what the hell - we'll give it a try for a week or so and see if anything comes in.

What is today's History Mystery?   


Subject: last issue's History Mystery    Link 

Bart, that picture was taken in late 60s Great Britain and shows
a group of Skin Heads walking past a group of long haired Hippies.

Swan and Edgar is in Picadilly Circus, London. The skinheads were a
phenomena of the early 1970's, at least the ones who dressed in Levi's
with bracers (suspenders as they are called in the colonies), collarless shirts,
and Doc Martens 1460's, a classic boot named for the date it was introduced:
April 1 1960. So.... are they some specific skinhead group? The fashions and
the design of London bus are too early for this to be the Clash.
Hmmmmm. Interesting picture,

Dude, great to hear from you - it's been ages.
