Start at the back and pry it off with a flat head.

Okay got the A pillared off fine, just is the head liner sopose to be glued to the roof?

What if I just cut the freaken thing with a articulating saw? From the top there, not right up against the car but just up the plastic far enough to keep it from scratching the car and from there if I cut low enough it will expose the screw to the point where I can dremel it out of the way and bondo the holes?

You could try it, but I would try and leave it so it can be put back on.

The headliner isn't glued to the roof, remove the oh shit handle.

Okay so good afternoon everyone, back to this, So just take off the handle and it should just pull back a little.

EDIT: Okay now I'm stumped I peeled back the headliner enough to see and there is a nut there, but what a pain in the ash, it feels like it is partly glued and I would have to pull back a lot of it.

are those stock racks? i thought they all laid flat on the car? (which might explain the grey looking sillicone at the the base of the black part and the glued headliner)
