Bradley Manning Gets 35 Years


A military judge sentenced Bradley Manning to 35 years in prison, bringing to a close the government’s
determined pursuit of the Army intelligence analyst who leaked the largest cache of classified documents in U.S. history.

The long prison term is likely to hearten national security officials who have been rattled by the subsequent
leaks from Edward Snowden. Manning’s conviction might also encourage the government to bring charges
against Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks.

That sounds like a really long sentence, but they say he'll likely only serve 10 years
and he's already served three of that so he could be free in the year 2020.

The Bobby Riggs Story
Rule: Don't gamble with mobsters


On Thursday night, Sept. 20, 1973, 50 million Americans, fatigued by Vietnam and Watergate, tuned in
to see whether a woman could defeat a man on a tennis court. Dubbed "The Battle of the Sexes," the match
pitted Billie Jean King, the 29-year-old champion of that summer's Wimbledon and a crusader for the women's
liberation movement, against Bobby Riggs, the 55-year-old gambler, hustler and long-ago tennis champ who had
willingly become America's bespectacled caricature of male chauvinism.

Before 30,472 at the Houston Astrodome, still the largest crowd to watch tennis in the United States,
the spectacle felt like a cross between a heavyweight championship bout and an old-time tent revival.

All of the vaudevillian hoopla made it easy to forget the enormous stakes and the far-reaching social consequences.
King was playing not just for public acceptance of the women's game but also an opportunity to prove her gender's
equality at a time when women could still not obtain a credit card without a man's signature. If she were to
defeat Bobby Riggs, the triumph would be shared by every woman who knew she deserved equal pay, opportunities
and respect. Equally sweet, King would cram shut the mouth of a male chauvinist clown who had chortled that a
woman belonged in the bedroom and the kitchen but certainly not in the same arena competing against a man.

Forty years ago a women couldn't get credit card without a man's signature?

Building Support for Pot
If only Obama wasn't such a Herbert


It no longer seems like a matter of if, but a matter of when the federal U.S. government will recognize
legitimate medical uses for marijuana. Cannabidiol (‘CBD’), a less psychoactive chemical found in the
marijuana plant, helps with epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, anxiety, schizophrenia, nausea, and seizures,
and has even been used to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Tetrahydrocannabinol (‘THC’), CBD’s
psychoactive big brother, has also been used to address medical conditions such as neuropathic and chronic pain.

Don't forget the miracles it can work with PSTD patients, of which we have thousands.
Don't forget the miracles it can work with heroin addicts, of which we have thousands. — an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization – estimates that there are at least
2.4 million medical marijuana patients in the United States. This estimate, extrapolated based off of
the number of patients currently in the system, likely understates the true number of people who could
use cannabis for a legitimate medical reason. Under the Controlled Substances Act), cannabis and cannabis
resin are Schedule I drugs, putting them in league with LSD, MDMA (aka ecstasy), heroin, and psilocybin.

That's just too stupid to be true - but it is.

This fact has hamstringed the medical marijuana movement. Patients, doctors, and researchers have been
dissuaded from pursuing cannabis as a viable prescription for the myriad maladies and sicknesses that it can
help treat because of federal laws and social stigma inspired by misinformation.

Yes, that's how we do things in America - we take something relatively harmless

and make it illegal and then make testing and studying of that drug illegal, too.

Why should Americans be allowed to grow something that will actually make their lives better
when Wall Street can sell us something that's not only harmful, but addictive, instead?

 Subject: We always have money for war

What I find amazing is that whenever the Government wants to get involved in a war
no one asks the question, "How are we going to pay for it?"

There's always an unlimited budget when it comes to going to war. We don't even bother to try to
figure out if we are on the right side. For example in Egypt we helped overthrow the government
just to elect the Muslim Brotherhood which turned out to be worse than their former dictator.
We invaded Iraq for no reason at all. And we're in the middle of Afghanistan where both sides
are the bad guys and bin Laden was in Pakistan.

Now Obama wants to get involved in Syria because nerve gas is being used. And we're going to go in
and overthrow the government and give it to who? Do we really need yet another war just for the sake
of looking like we're involved? Maybe we need to take the time to think things through this time
rather than do something just for the sake of looking tough.
 Marc Perkel

Opinion: I don't think Obama will send troops to Syria.

BTW, when we were in California we stopped by Perkel's place.
I tried to straighten him out on Snowden but Marc still thinks he's a hero.

Miley Outshocks Gaga at VMAs
and she borrowed Shirley's hair to do it


With Lady Gaga set to open the MTV Video Music Awards, the audience braced themselves for a dose
of patented Gaga shock treatment. For half a decade plus now, Gaga has served as the reliable producer
of those jaw-dropping moments that dominate water cooler talk the next day. 

Gaga, looking for a bit of a comeback after some time out of the spotlight, needed to hit the stage hard.
On the red carpet before the show, Gaga was asked how she planned to stun the crowd. The expectations
were high. But after coming out standing in a milk carton, a few retrospective wig changes, smearing
some paint on her face, the big moment? A quick spin to flash the singer's teeny tiny thong.

Just when people began to relax after Gaga's not-so-weird performance, the real sucker punch of the night came:
when Miley Cyrus hit the stage.   "Miley better get a pregnancy test after all that twerkin', " joked Kevin Hart.

It did seem a little much for a "family" show.
Maybe Miley needs to leak a sex tape and then just stick to the music when she's on stage?

But why does MTV even have a video awards show?
MTV doesn't play videos anymore - do they even make videos these days?

Subject: health troubles

Dear Bart,

I’m so very sorry to hear your health problems have risen up again. 
You are doing the right thing – having as much fun as you can. 
I, for one, would not mind if you want to share with us what you’re
going through but that’s a difficult choice for you, I know. 

My thoughts and prayers (in spite of what Mark Perkel says) are with you and Mrs. Bart. 
You are too wonderful to have this happen to you.
  Debbie from Milwaukee
Debbie, thanks for that.
I might have not mentioned it, but they say I'll be too weak to type some days
and I didn't want people to think I was getting lazy in my old age :)

David Gregory - Tool of Tools
No wonder he's fallen to last in the ratings OR
who wants to hear what McCain thinks every week?


David Gregory is the same guy who blithely told everyone it wasn't his job to fact check his guests.

David Gregory is the same guy who thinks that being a back-up dancer for Karl Rove was a good idea.

David Gregory is the same "journalist" who lets unconvicted criminal Ralph Reed trash the president
without disclosing that he was an official proxy for the Romney campaign.

David Gregory is the same "journalist" who rejected the idea of challenging the lies to the run up to the Iraq War,
but thinks it's completely appropriate to ask Senate Majority Leader if he feels bad about being mean to President Bush.

David Gregory is the same guy who thinks that President Obama needs to get tough with seniors about accepting cuts
to the social safety nets so that Gregory's paycheck doesn't see a dint.

Subject: meeting at Tommy's in San Fran

Hi Bart!

I was there.  I met a guy named Chet.  We talked for over an hour.  Then we started to drift out. 
We went up the block to a coffee house and got access for his phone to go online.  We needed
coaching to check Tweet, but when we did we say that you must have had to push us out of the
way to take a photo that you posted on Tweet.

I would have liked to chat with you but alas it was not to be. The famous Australian outlaw
Ned Kelly's last words (before the hangman opened the trap door) were:  "Such is life."

Maybe I should just send you a long e-mail?
Cheers, mate!

Subject: meeting at Tommy's

Hey Bart, it looks like we got our signals crossed.  I was at Tommy's from 5:00 to 6:30, but you didn't show up. 
Too bad, because I would have liked to have met you, since I'm a big fan of your site.  Your twitters says you
were at Tommy's, but I don't think I missed you.  I met another Bartcop fan (His name was Bob), and we asked
just about everyone who walked into the place if their name was Bart.  Anyway, Bob was a nice guy, and I enjoyed
hanging out with him, but I am sorry that I wasn't able to connect with you.

Regardless, I hope you're enjoying your vacation. 

Sorry we missed you guys.
It's odd that we could miss each other is such a small place.
We were at Table #3 where I could watch the front door.

Nobody said, "I'll be there for sure" so I didn't alert the staff to direct people to our table.
I didn't want to tell them "I'm expecting friends" and then have nobody show up :)

I tweeted this at 4:30

and I tweeted this at 5:30

but I now realize that everyone isn't on Twitter.

If I had half a brain I would've used Facebook.

Subject: Obama lying about NSA?

Hi Bart.

You and I are in fundamental disagreement about the Snowden affair. 
But you asked a pertinent question: is anybody accusing Obama of lying?

The answer to that question is now a qualified yes. 
David Sirota, writing for Salon, states that Obama is [my synopsis]
either lying or incompetent (and that lying is the least worrying option). 
 Paul A

I say David Sirota doesn't count.
He's Obama's jilted lover and he's about as impartial at the vulgar Pigboy.

In 2008, Sirota was ready to drink Obama's dirty bathwater.
Now he wants him boiled in oil and one must wonder about Sirota's stability
but gee, he sure looks good on MSNBC when he's trashing his president.
