The far right's use of the Gadsden flag predates the tea party

I bought a new used medium-format camera right after New Year's. I send the film to Kansas for processing because it's less expensive to do that and Dwayne's Photo is the best C-41 lab in America. I also had a roll of film I shot at the 2003 antiwar protest in Fayettenam, NC, so I added it to the order. (I have no idea why I kept this film unprocessed for that long.)

This picture was on the roll from 2003. :

Declared teabaggers didn't exist in 2003, but right wingers were using the symbols associated with modern-day teabaggers then.

14-year-old boy kills father, brother

Don't read this unless you have a very strong stomach. This shit is fucked up to extremes.


Please tell me this is the name of a famous Air Force general


Fairchild Air Force Base just opened its new $13.5-million headquarters building for the two aerial refueling units tenant at the Eastern Washington Base. There's a sign out front. The street address of the building is on the sign.

"1 East Bong Street."

Is Obama Derangement Syndrome really delayed Bush Derangement Syndrome?

With the exception of Obamacare, most of the crap the Republicans are ripping on Obama over are actually Bush's sins...all the vacationing, the golfing, being a dictator...is it possible that they were as pissed at Shrub as we were, but saved their abuse for the next Democrat to come along?

The current rain delay is sponsored by the new movie Noah.

Just announced on the Bristol race broadcast.

Watch the government's WWII pro-hemp propaganda film

During World War II, the US government made a movie to convince farmers to grow hemp for the war effort. This is it:

Do you remember Payne Stewart?

Payne Stewart was a professional golfer who died aboard his personal airplane, a Learjet. The plane lost cabin pressure and just kept on flying until it ran out of fuel...at which point it just fell out of the sky.

Now that we have reports the plane transmitted engine-health data to Rolls Royce four hours after its last known transmission, could this plane have suffered the same fate as Payne Stewart's?

Is a bow a "firearm"?

A magistrate judge in Idaho is deciding this right now. The cops in Oldtown, Idaho, hauled someone in for "unlawful possession of a firearm due to felony conviction." The subject was convicted of felony drug possession and of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter in 2006, not sure if it was at the same time. (He was charged with felony vehicular manslaughter for killing a man in a car crash, but convicted of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.)

Under Idaho Code, it's illegal for anyone with a felony conviction to possess a firearm. The code also defines a firearm:

"A firearm is any weapon from which a shot, projectile or other object may be discharged by force of combustion, explosive, gas and/or mechanical means, whether operable or inoperable."

So...is a bow a firearm?

Putting numbers to the minimum wage debate

I am Joe Storeowner. I have a retail establishment that sells $100,000 worth of good merchandise per day, and employs 100 people. I only have to pay them $7.25 per hour.

If the evil Federal Government raises the minimum wage to $10 per hour, I must increase the pay of my minimum-wage workers by $2.75 per hour. After I do that, the ungrateful slackers I pay more than minimum wage come to my office and demand I also give them a $2.75 per hour raise, which adds $2200 per day to my payroll expense.

Someone has to pay for this insanity, and it's going to be all those worthless liberals who forced this on me. I sit down and do some numbers, and quickly realize I can recoup my losses by raising my prices 2.2 percent. Decimal percents are a pain to deal with in pricing, so I raise my prices three percent.

Strange thing: I raised the prices of my $25 pants to $25.75, and now I'm selling more of them than ever before.

Bartcop's Obit

Celebrating the life of Terry Coppage

Terry was born September 12, 1953 in St. Louis, Missouri to Joe and Anne Coppage and was the youngest of three children. He began his schooling at Holy Family in St. Louis and graduated from St. Mary's in Little Rock, Arkansas before attending the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Terry married the love of his life Debby in Tulsa on November 20, 1976. Terry was quite the entrepreneur over the years. He worked in the small loan, vending/gaming and restaurant industries. Terry also owned several businesses, including Rock Island and The Train Station, before focusing his time on his current career, Bartcop.com, as a political humorist. Terry was a drummer as a young man and always enjoyed music. He and Debby often traveled to attend the concerts of some of their favorite groups. Travel, mostly to Western states, was one of Terry's favorite things to do with Debby by his side. Northern California weather was an enjoyable destination spot as well as the mountains of Colorado and New Mexico. He also enjoyed writing, discussing politics and hanging out at home with Debby and their cats, Rusty and Dax. Terry's motto was "have a good time every day" and he did that most of the time. He was a kind, caring and protective husband who frequently told his wife how much he loved his life, living with her and their kitties and writing the Bartcop.com web page. He was a confident, tenacious man who maybe had a little impatience in him but used those qualities to voice his views on truth and equality and provide a platform for like-minded people.

Terry is survived by his loving wife Debby, his brother Mike and wife Gayle of St. Louis, Missouri, his sister Patty and husband Wally Sieges of St. Louis; his brothers-in-law, Jeff Stephens and wife Angie of Tulsa, and Todd Stephens and wife Breanna of Houston, Texas; several nieces and nephews, several great nieces and nephews, and many friends. Memorial service will be Sunday, March 9, 2014, at 12:30 pm, in the Floral Haven Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Terry’s memory at F&M Bank, acct: #9281096; 1330 South Harvard Avenue, Tulsa, OK 74112.
