The way these Republicans are sooo concerned over Iran's stolen elections
is just comical. Does anyone remember how they acted when our 2000 and 2004 elections were stolen? You'd think they'd shut up. At some point, elections will be stolen by someone again in this country. If its Pugs, then they are telling Americans to riot and revolt. Fucking useless pieces of shit.

And when did the Republicans ever support any Muslim nation? Aren't they in constant "fear" mode of "other" with anyone who prays to Allah? Hypocrisy is just something that Republicans don't understand all that well.

3. I agree with you glowing
Americans love to look for a "smoking gun". They see cover ups and stolen elections around every corner. Don't get swept away by the hype until all the facts are in.

5. As someone devoted to election reform, yes they were stolen.
First, by the Supreme Court and purposely bad paper in Palm Beach by Sequoia (we have proof) to usher in the need for electronics (GW et al saying, non-stop on TV, we need computers), then in 2004, by electronics.

4. The only U.S. Senator with any right to comment on Iran is Senator Boxer.
Edited on Sun Jun-21-09 10:20 AM by Ian David
The rest can all STFU.

And that goes doubly for John F. Kerry.

6. As expert, par excellence, and exposing/investigating for Iran-Contra, Kerry has legit. opinion.
Edited on Sun Jun-21-09 10:36 AM by MarjorieG
Boxer, because?

Just relaized the poster meant elections, not as world renowned foreign policy expert.

7. Well, perhaps the newbies maybe? No? But Kerry didn't fight.
Ohio and the country lost big time. I think all of D.C. should shut the f up and watch what it could look like if we ever got off our collective asses. Perhaps if we did, we'd get healthcare and bailouts for the most of us and not for the few that already had it well off.

9. Kerry couldn't complain on his own, w.o. proof or ability to get it, plus a media and Dem party
wanting to shut it down. After Bush v Gore, states had to allow investigation, Blackwell wouldn't, and we still can't get certain kinds of proof.

GOP wanted to get popular vote to discourage any discussion, and stole country-wide, more votes than voters in red states (like in Iran's rural vote). You have to think back to 2004, when most people didn't want a replay of 2000, with Bush still popular (supported by media to be/seem popular, before Katrina, etc).

Kerry is the easy scapegoat on this. Are you fighting electronics in your state? Op-scans are problematic, and we don't have alternative technology. Except in NY, my state and the last with levers, mechanical and totallly transparent and citizen run. We're fighting to keep them.

8. They only do and say
whatever is politically expedient at any given moment. And of course, whatever might possibly contradict Obama.

10. Nazi-level insanity/hypocrisy has been the hallmark of their success for quite some time now.
It works as well as it did in the 20s and 30s for the RW.

They tell such utter lies and fabrications, stay "on message" and keep repeating them even after they have been clearly debunked (just as Goebbels advised), that it often reduces decent human beings with conscience to gasping amazement.

Of course, none of it would be effective without their domination and much outright control of our Corporate M$M and National Dialogue to reinforce and launder their lies.

But really, discussing with a Savage Weiner or a Hannidiot or any of them is like discussing with an infant.

"Hitler was a Liberal!"

"The religious theocracy of Iran is Leftist and Marxist!" (which is the latest Big Lie the Bushies are disseminating)

Utter madness. They might as well say things like "George Washington was the First President of Spaghetti!" and have it make as much sense.

But our Bushies have learned from the finest the Nazi Propagandists had to offer, that as Goebbels said, they just need to keep repeating their Big Lies over the protestations of the intellectuals.

Amazingly, it works pretty much as well as it did when the Nazis did it. Witness the transformation of our nation into an Inverted Totalitarianism who's long-term goals simply cannot be stopped.

I had once hoped the election of Obama plus Democratic majorities would stop them, but that hope fades daily. Obama is merely placeholding, whether he knows it or not, and when the Bushies steal their next Presiential "election" (probably 2012, since allowing the 2008 Obama victory has released the pressure valve and they can get back to their old tricks no without fear of an "Iran") they will resume as if they'd never been gone, just like in 2001.

But the vast success of Goebbels tenets as lived by the Bushies is indisputable.

12. The goal of the corporatists
is to crack open Iranian markets so that we can sell our products there (probably a lot of it is second hand junk made in China, lol). That's why corporate journalists Thomas Friedman and Roger Cohen are pimping these demonstrations to the max. I can only assume the Republicans are in on it too. Though Friedman is practically a Republican anyway!

14. Well, Iran is one of the only countries left that controls its own money.
I think Venezuela is another, Iraq was one.. there's not too many left. However, I'm not sure what will come from chaos at this time.. There are sharks in everyone's waters.

13. Embarrassed is the underlying emotion.. Its why so many are interested in watching
these people who have been our "boogey men" rise up. Its amazing how many American's are proclaiming they are "Iranians" at this time...
