Sometimes I wish I signed up under a fake name.
It is when we all play safe that we create a world of utmost insecurity. It is when we all play safe that fatality will lead us to our doom. It is in the "dark shade of courage" alone that the spell can be broken.
-- Dag Hammarskjöld

The B.S. fed to U.S. citizens

Obama faces a delicate balancing act on Iran, leading up to November U.S. general election. On the one hand, he must show voters he is being tough on the Islamic state.[/size]But with oil and gasoline prices surging in response to geopolitical risks, he must also avoid steps that would unduly rattle oil markets. That could threaten the global economy and hurt voters already angered by the rising cost of fuel.Now I bet Obama will break out the reserves when gas reaches 6-8 bucks a gallon. Then he'll be a hero, just before the election. Nothing more than election ploy, it's disgusting. Couldn't care less how people will cope.

A good short article w/o the usual spin on attacking Iran. (The Backdoor to Iran War) There's a Petition


Remember when we pilloried John McCain for singing about bombing Iran?
Wouldn't it be a scandal if it turned out that California Senator Barbara Boxer and Oregon Senator Ron Wyden were pushing the same agenda?
I have bad news, I'm afraid. They are.
