  • Iran: Obama 'held captive' by Republicans, Ahmadinejad aide claims

    09/14/2009 7:44:28 AM PDT · by FourPeas · 20 replies · 1,142+ views
    Tehran, 14 Sept. (AKI) - United States president Barack Obama is being held "captive by extremist Republicans", said the media advisor and close aide to Iran's hardline president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday. Ali Akbar Javanfakr, quoted by Iran's student news agency ISNA, said Obama's stance and behaviour regarding Iran shows that "he is held captive by extremist Republicans and has been very unsuccessful with keeping George Bush’s ideas out of the White House." In addition, Javanfekr said Obama also needs to find radical solutions for problems if it wants sustainable relations with Iran. "If Americans favour sustainable and trustworthy ties...

    From Fox News: Hillary Clinton says she will not be influenced by contributors to her husband's foundation as secretary of state. RIGHT!!!! In Roman times, government officials became wealthy by taking bribes, selling citizenship, confiscating treasure, skimming tax revenue ... and that's only the beginning. The Clintons seem to be reviving and improving on the practice of getting very wealthy as members of the governing class. After all, what better way to get favorable treatment from the US government if you are the ruler of a third world country than to "contribute" to the husband of the Secretary of State....

    Me | Today | Dan Pride
    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    WASHINGTON - Sen. Hillary Clinton doesn't mention the "vast right-wing conspiracy" in her latest fund-raising letter, but warns "they" are still out to get her. "We know one thing for sure, the Republicans and their right-wing allies are going to be hitting us hard with false charges," Clinton said in the letter released in recent days. "Our first belief is that the best way to deal with this kind of stuff is to fight back hard and fast," said Clinton's political adviser Ann Lewis. Clinton's letter appeared as GOP operative Arthur Finkelstein launched his long-anticipated "Stop Her Now" Web site...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    So let me just ask you a question, folks: Are you feeling pretty good today? I'll bet most of you are. Well, what an afternoon and night and morning it has been.

Greetings and welcome. It's the Rush Limbaugh program. It's the EIB Network. Our telephone number, 800-282-2882, and the e-mail address is Before we go any further, I want...

    The last seven days brought this: Dick Cheney suggested that the election of John Kerry would result in "devastating" terrorist attack. (His nominal boss merely opined that Mr. Kerry is a fan of Saddam Hussein.) Two generals informed the Senate Armed Services Committee that the C.I.A., in contravention of international and military law, kept up to 100 Iraqi detainees off the Abu Ghraib prison rolls in order to hide them from the Red Cross. The "Coalition of the Willing" lost another member when Costa Rica, which doesn’t maintain an army and never joined it in the first place, asked to...

    Gore’s TV War: He Lobs Salvo At Fox News by Josh Benson Among the many problems facing the Democratic Party, according to former Vice President Al Gore, is the state of the American media. "The media is kind of weird these days on politics, and there are some major institutional voices that are, truthfully speaking, part and parcel of the Republican Party," said Mr. Gore in an interview with The Observer. "Fox News Network, The Washington Times, Rush Limbaugh—there’s a bunch of them, and some of them are financed by wealthy ultra-conservative billionaires who make political deals with Republican administrations...
