"If I had the chance to go back and do it again, I don't think I would've taken
  the audience up on their choice. I had presented an entire performance and I
  framed it as truth and then I came back out for an encore and they requested
  reality, and what has consequently taken place ever since then is my manifestation
  of how little I think of reality."

O'Reilly Battles Laura Ingraham
Fight!  Fight!  Fight!  Fight!  Fight!  Fight!

                          "You stupid cow!"                                       "Stuff it, you old goat!"

O’Reilly ripped into fellow Nazi Laura Ingraham on his hate show last night, and Ms. Ingraham
responded in kind. The subject was gay marriage – specifically, whether it’s offensive for O’Reilly
to say that those on the right who simply “thump the Bible” in opposing same will lose.

It begins with O’Reilly saying that gay marriage proponents have successfully defined it as a civil rights
issue, which he called a “compelling” argument that social conservatives have yet to counter.

"The other side hasn’t been able to do anything but thump the Bible,” he said.

The vulgar Pigboy took umbrage at this. On his own hate radio show, he took out after O’Reilly,
calling him “Ted Baxter," after the pompous anchor from the Mary Tyler Moore show.

ha ha

This GOP civil war needs more blood spilled.

Fight!  Fight!  Fight!  Fight!  Fight!  Fight!

Hi Bart!

This very big poster was put up on the side of a building in Berkeley at Ashby and Telegraph.
 Bob P
reporting live from the Claremont Branch of the Berkeley Public Library.

  Reagan was so For Sale, he sold weapons to Hezzbollah and the Ayatollah.
  When he got caught, he said, "I did what?  Not in my heart, I didn't."

 Lucky for Reagan, America bought his "I had no idea what I was doing" defense.

North Korea's Nuclear Gamble


North Korea has moved a missile with "considerable range" to its east coast,
South Korea's defense minister said Thursday, but he added that there are no signs
that Pyongyang is preparing for a full-scale conflict.

The report came hours after North Korea's military warned that it has been authorized
to attack the U.S. using "smaller, lighter and diversified" nuclear weapons. It was the
North's latest war cry against America in recent weeks. The reference to smaller weapons
could be a claim that Pyongyang has improved its nuclear technology. Or a bluff.

Why do small-time handjobs threaten the United States?

If there's ONE thing the US is good at, it's kicking in some nation's doors
and turning their country into a steaming pile of depleted uranium debris.

Does Obama need to explain to the crazy midget that IF ONE nuke goes off
North Korea and it's citizens would immediately cease to exist?

 Subject: you're losing me, Bart

I would trade these half-assed pages for Bartcop Radio in an instant.

I would trade today's income for what I was making in 2004.

I asked why Digby and Somerby treat you as a leper -- crickets.

I didn't realize they were treating me poorly.
Do they even know who I am?

Tell your story before it's too late. I still love you, man, but I am really wondering where
was the beef with the other OGs who have IMO dropped off much more than you have.

That sounded like a compliment - thanks.

What story do you want me to tell?  My autobiography?
I think that would be funny as hell - I have fifty years of stories which,
properly edited, might be a hoot - but I can't stop working to write it.

(And without BCR, you really have.)

BCR was largely ignored and each show took many, many hours to produce.
That's a lot of work for something that's hardly being noticed.

Don't end with a whimper as Somerby is doing; the Howler is absolute garbage now.

Maybe the economy will come back and things will get better.

Exxon NOT Required to Pay for Spill
Carter-era law lets them walk away


ExxonMobil will be required to fix the Pegasus pipeline, which has spilled an estimated 5,000
barrels of  toxit shit into central Arkansas. However, ExxonMobil wasn’t required to pay into
the fund that will pay most of the costs to clean up the spill.
Pegasus carries crude oil that often contains a large amount of bitumen. And according to a 1980 law,
companies transporting this type of crude from the oil shales of Canada are not required to pay into
the trust fund. Only companies transporting conventional crude are required to pay the eight cents
per gallon that was used to clean up the 364 pipeline spills last year.
And, yes, the proposed Keystone XL pipeline would be shipping the same sort of crude
that allows oil giants to skip out on insuring against spills.

 Subject: solving gay marriage

I had an idea the first time I heard of the idea of gay marriage, and people wanting to deny it. 

The first thing that popped into my mind was separation of church and state.  The idea is marriage
should be a purely religious act, separate from legal unions.  And if they (G.O.P.) want to deny
marriage for gay people, the proper thing to do is to deny marriage to everyone.  Make it so that
in all legal documents of all levels of government, state, local, federal...  replace 'marriage' with
'civil union' - for everyone. 

If you want to form a legal union with a spouse, go to town hall. 
If you want to get married, go to your church. 
If your church refuses your marriage, change churches. 

That way we maintain separation of church and state, and your religion
can define your marriage, as the G.O.P. as been claiming it should all along.

Justice Rapes Lewis Taylor - Again
After 41 years of prison, one more indignation


Louis Taylor broke down in tears Wednesday as he described how he spent his first hours
of freedom after more than 40 years in prison for a hotel fire that killed 29 people.

Taylor was released Tuesday after doubts about his conviction surfaced and he agreed to
a deal that set him free. He pleaded no contest to each of the 29 counts of murder
against him in an agreement that allowed the judge to sentence him to time served.

So, "Justice" was asking, "Do you want to be innocent or go free?" and he chose to go free.

While he has consistently maintained his innocence, Taylor said he took the deal because
he wanted out now instead of remaining in prison for years more to seek vindication at a new trial.

Taylor also had to agree NOT to sue the lying bastards who framed him.
I ask again: WHY is it legal to frame someone for murder?

The lazy/crooked/incompetent cops stole 41 years of this man's life.

People say, "To hear them tell it, everyone in prison is innocent."
No, not all of them, just the poor Blacks who weren't given decent legal counsel.

Hell, even if you had decent legal consel, what if he/she tells you,
"You can plead guilty to a crime you didn't commit and get four years.'
  OR you can gamble with the racist, all-white jury that might give you life?"

Perfect!  Your choices are four years or life - and you did nothing wrong.

To this day, being Black is America is no picnic.
Think what life was like BEFORE 1964, when Blacks received the "gift" of civil rights.

Leaked Files Expose Super-Rich
So this is where they hid all their billions...


A cache of 2.5 million files has cracked open the secrets of more than 120,000 offshore
companies and trusts, exposing hidden dealings of politicians, con men and the mega-rich.

The secret records obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists lay bare
the names behind covert companies and private trusts in the British Virgin Islands, the Cook Islands
and other offshore hideaways.

They include American doctors and middle-class Greek villagers as well as families of long-time despots,
Wall Street swindlers, Eastern European and Indonesian billionaires, Russian corporate executives,
international arms dealers and a sham-director-fronted company that the European Union has labeled
as a cog in Iran’s nuclear-development program.

The leaked files provide facts and figures — cash transfers, incorporation dates, links between companies
and individuals — that illustrate how offshore financial secrecy has spread aggressively around the globe,
allowing the wealthy and the well-connected to dodge taxes and fueling corruption and economic woes
in rich and poor nations alike. The records detail the offshore holdings of people and companies in more
than 170 countries and territories.

I'll bet the scam here is that their scamming is legal. They must have moved that money legally.
No way Romney is traveling with $5B in hundred dollar bills stuffed into suitcases.

They pay congress to write laws that say whatever they're doing is legal.
That's the real scam here.

Subject: Social Sec, Medicare

Bart, thank you for a place that regular Americans can voice their concerns on social security,
and I would like to add medicare to the mix also. The simple fix for S.S.I. is to raise the cap.
The last time this happened was 1985 - problem solved.

Medicare would require a bigger solution than I have,but a partial fix would be to have the
government negotiate drug prices. To stardurst and Badtothebonebob, do your states have a
recall  process?

Oregon has one, I think our senators and congressmen will vote the right way,
but maybe a grassroots effort should be started so it would be ready just in case they don’t.
Best of luck to us all.
