Can You Hear the Loons?

mayflowerIran is not a nuclear threat to America or anyone. It never has been and it never will be. The reasons for the current demonization of Iran is about oil, oil, and oil.  Just like Viet Nam, just like Iraq (Twice) and just like Afghanistan.

Russia is one of Israel's biggest military partners and if military action commences against Iran then Russia, along with India and Saudi Arabi, will reap HUGE profits from oil. That means you'll pay much more at the pump and even more in taxes as the U.S. military will inevitably play a part in this farce, and all for the benefit of the oil companies.


How stupid are we?


Note 1: If you're curious about the European economic crisis, look no further for clarification than Paul Krugman.

Note 2: A bill that will effectively shut down the right to assemble is heading for the Presidents desk. This is not good.

Note 3: People from wealthy, upper classes are more likely than poorer folks to break laws while driving, take candy from children and lie for financial gain, said a US study. Who'd a thunk?

Note 4: Do you like to fish? Check out the t-shirts at the Ray Troll Web Store. They're great! (I make nothing off this mention. I simply appreciate the artwork.)

Note 5: "It is OK that JFK's speech [about division of church and state] makes you throw up, because if he were alive today, you running for president would make him shit his pants." Jon Stewart on Rick Santorum.
