“It’s A Bad Deal!”

I have been observing the debate surrounding the deal made with Iran over their nuclear capability for about 2 months……there are many that do not like the deal that was agreed upon…..politicians, voters and especially bloggers.  In those months there has been an plethora of lip service in opposition to the deal.  In all that time I have heard not one word on why they oppose the deal……….most are opposed based on hyperbole and outright lies wrapped in cute slogans.

You know I might take these people, especially my fellow bloggers, if they would offer up an explanation on why they oppose the deal…..I mean there is a wealth of things I do not like but at least I offer up a reason for my opposition………but so far NO specifics and for that reason I do not reply on the blogs when they write about their hatred of the deal.

I understand all the distrust of Iran….I mean we are still living with the 1979 embassy attack and the hostages…….I understand that they, Iran, is blamed for the deaths caused by IEDs in Iraq……..or their ever expanding footprint in the Middle East…..but none of this is a good reason to oppose the control of nukes in the region.

I ask now…..if you are in opposition to the deal agreed upon with Iran to please let me know exactly what it is about the deal that has you in opposition…….I mean we have the total crap being passed around by people like that idiot broad, Bachmann……..

In an interview on the evangelical radio program “Understanding the Times” this weekend, former Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann opined that we should all feel very “privileged to live in” the End Times, which are currently upon us now that Obama’s negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran

Bachmann claimed that the Obama administration’s historic accord is evidence of the fulfillment of the prophecy from Zechariah 12:3 — “On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves” — and that only through the heroic efforts of Congressional Republicans and their lone Democratic ally, New York Senator Chuck Schumer, to undermine the deal will America be spared God’s wrath.

Just one example of the silly, absurd even perverted crap being passed around for people to use to fuel their opposition to the deal.

Have you read the wording of the deal?  NO?  For Christ sake, how can you be opposed to something you have no idea what it is about?

Maybe a quick read of what is in the deal would be in order……….

The Iran nuclear deal, translated into plain English – Vox.

Now with the reading of this plain English translation of diplo-speak you can point to the part or parts that you are opposed to…..or you could just continue on sounding like a buffoon in your opposition……your choice.

Trump/Kelly Saga Or They’re So Lame

I guess today I need to bow to social convention and post on some of the mundane worthless stories that Americans find so damn interesting (no accounting for intelligence).

I am amazed that the cock up between “Mr. Hair” and Megyn Kelly, FOX News anchor….this whole thing is mind numbingly mundane and worthless……but conserv after conserv has come to the forefront and demand that Trump act like an adult (not gonna happen) these people have whacked the Donald’s pee-pee over his comment and some have even gone so far as to call it disgusting…..and some have just mumbled because they are afraid to get on his bad side…….

First, all this lip service is just so much BS……it is what everyone tuned in for….the ratings were phenomenal…….people wanted to see what the Donald would say……the viewers got what they tuned in for…..THEATRICS!  That whole thing was designed to be a win-win scenario…..all sides came out of it all the better….it delivered!

Second, Trump did not actually answer a single question but instead delivered his usual platitudes and brashness……nothing about actual policies or stands other than his usual find a scapegoat…..he was telling people what they wanted to hear and he got what he was there for….APPLAUSE!

Last, Trump’s lame ass comment about Kelly…..if he had made the statement about a liberal then every conserv on the planet would have jumped to his defense…….saying the he was just “telling it like it is”…..again all this was just for show and the mindless bought it hook line and sinker.

This country has more problems than can be repaired in a lifetime and yet we want some egotistical dickhead to go off and play his little game……..there is NOTHING to Trump…..but HAIR!

It is just silly that this is still a story in the media……..I guess the Clinton e-mails will be the next to be dragged on…..and on…..and………

Afghanistan: The Forever War by Rachelle Marshall — Antiwar.com

Here’s an idea….let’s talk about America’s longest war…….Afghanistan.

You remember Afghanistan…..that place that the news media has all but forgotten.  There seems to be NO end to this conflict……no matter how hard we try to find a way out……there is NONE!

Maybe if we spent a little more time trying to understand the country we invaded…..maybe then we could find a way to remove our troops and let them spend some time with their families……..

A one- or two-state solution?

World has been debating the question of Palestine and Israel for damn near 70 years……there have been so many plans to solve the conflict that the world has lost count……and yet they keep trying the same type of negotiations time and time again that always ends in failure.

Maybe a new perspective might be a good idea…….this article is a look at the whole question in depth and from a good perspective……..I recommend it highly.
