Iran's Nuclear Advances
...and how to interpret them
 by Tony Karon
Gee, I guess it depends on the guy writing the article.


The nuclear advances announced Wednesday by Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are a
prelude to an expected new round of talks between Tehran and Western powers -- and also a moment
of electioneering by a political faction struggling to retain its grip on the country's elected institutions.

Does he mean Ahmahandjob or Obama?

Expressing Tehran's defiance in the face of escalating Western sanctions, the announcements suggest
that while Iran's leaders might be giving themselves the option of making concessions, they're not about
to cry uncle and accept the terms being demanded of them.

Damn, he sees Iran currently jockeying for a position from which to make concessions?
I'd bet more than half the UN countries see severe saber-rattling where Tony Karon sees "concessions."
I think we can safely say which side Tony is on.

Ahmadinejad was shown on national TV attending the installation of a domestically-produced fuel plate
of uranium enriched to 20% into a Tehran research reactor that produces medical isotopes. He also
attended an elaborate ceremony announcing what Tehran said was a "new generation" of centrifuges
capable of more rapidly enriching uranium -- a claim questioned by some non-proliferation experts,
such as the International Institute for Strategic Studies' Mark Fitzpatrick who suggests that Iran has
long overstated the capacity and sophistication of its centrifuges.

ha ha

The expert suggests Iran is nuclear bluffing?  I never heard of Tony Karon before today,
but I guarantee you Tony thinks there's a Heaven and he's quite certain he's going to it.

Really, Tony?

Ahamahandjob "attended" this ceremony?
He "attended" that ceremony the way Hulk Hogan "attended" wrestiling matches.

And don't you love the eway Tony adssures us that Iran's rods are only at 20%,
when everybody knows it has to be 90% to go BOOM - so what's the worry?

Even if you, the reader, are STRONGLY pro-Iran in ths fight, you have to admit
that this writer is doing a really, really bad job of disguising his extreme bias.

He is assigning fact status to every wild claim that he types.
Maybe he's often a smart writer who's really on the ball,
but from what I'm reading here, this guys is another Glenn Beck.

Maybe he's right.
Maybe he's got a point.
But if he did, couldn't he have stayed closer to the truth?

Tony, I'm not a fan.

Sarah Palin - Always Butting In
Is she thinking about getting in the race?


Sarah Palin is making news lately, especially for someone who's not running for president.
While she has been unwilling to endorse any candidate, she has injected her voice into the debate
through her appearances on Fox News and other media outlets. Is she trying to help the GOP or
does she have some other agenda? Is it possible that she is just so in need of attention that she is
willing to risk sabotaging the Republican race for president? Or is she using the publicity as a way
to sell more books and DVDs?

No matter what her motivation, she is not helping her party. If she is a Republican, then she should
act like one and support the candidates instead of creating more drama. If she truly feels that none of
the candidates are conservative enough, and she truly wants to support the ideals of the tea party,
she should stop aligning herself with the GOP and run as an independent. Unfortunately, she is
using the election as a way to stay in the headlines and make money.


Subject: Married women use birth control too

Many right wing religious zealots like presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who believes
birth control is evil, might find it shocking to find out that married women use birth control too.

Even though he has 7 kids I'd bet there are times when his wife tried to avoid getting pregnant.
How can anyone be so out of touch with reality?

But what I find even more shocking than that is - Santorum for president?

Subject: Tell me about all those dead American soldiers

Hi Bart - totally puzzled about your statements:

> "But are you forgetting the thousands of dead US soldiers?
> Iran has killed more American soldiers than any country since Vietnam.
> Don't forget, there are tens of thousands of maimed soldiers, too.

> Just listing some facts  :)

I'll be darned if I can remember anything like that happening,
plus I can't find it in the history books. Please enlighten me
about this major massacre of American soldiers Iran committed.


Chooks, there's always a chance I'm wrong, but I never lie
because if I did, I'd get called on it right away by a hundred readers.

Perhaps one of us is using unfamiliar terms?

I thought everyone agreed that Iran supplied the IEDs that killed the soldiers.

Are you suggesting those IEDs came from some other source besides Iran?

Colbert abruptly shuts down
Gave no notice, no reason...

Comedy Central has abruptly and unexpectedly suspended production of The Colbert Report
for the rest of the week due to unexplained circumstances.

Colbert's network announced that they would be airing repeat episodes on Feb. 15 and 16 and
have yet to reveal why the show was shut down or when it will return. Officially, Comedy Central
blamed the halt on rather ambiguous "unforeseen circumstances."

Stephen Colbert has yet to comment on the situation. It appears Colbert was unaware the suspension
was coming down.  
The Colbert Report has never suspended production before,


Seems like they should say something.

Is he in the hospital?
Was he kidnapped?
Wife and kids OK?

Miranda Lambert vs Chris Brown
Did the music biz forgive him too soon?


Country singer Miranda Lambert doesn't get why woman-beater Chris Brown
was allowed to perform twice at the Grammys on Sunday.

She tweeted on Monday: "He beat on a girl...not cool that we act like that didn't happen."

Brown beat up then-girlfriend Rihanna the night before the Grammys in 2009.
He pled guilty to an assault charge and was sentenced to one slap on one wrist.

I agree with Miranda.

It's not like Brown slapped her or pushed her to the ground.
He beat her face with his fists for a considerable amount of time.

"People don't forget! #chrisbrownbeatswomen.  If Chris Brown had worn a
  wife beater, the irony would eclipse the whole show."   Link
     --  Ozzy Osbourne's son Jack

"Everyone who apparently forgot what Chris Brown did to Rihanna
  should read the police report on exactly what he did.”    Link
     --  Star Trek actor Will Wheaton

"HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That's the ultimate FUCK OFF,"    Link

Even Michigan's Economy Better
The GOP hates when America gets better


Nicky D's Coney Island in Warren, Mich., across the street from a Chrysler truck plant,
co-owner Diana Dedvuka has seen her bustling diner come back from a near-death experience.

"People are working.  They're spending more money. Customers seem to be happier," she said.

In 2009, the restaurant struggled to stay open as Chrysler and GM teetered on the brink of collapse.

"Our business went down 40percent," says Dedvuka, the daughter of a retired auto worker.
"Driving to work, you would see these big (auto) plants completely empty. It would give you chills."

Now customers who once feared losing their jobs are complaining about working too much overtime.

As Santorum and Gingrich scramble to overtake native son Willard in the Michigan primary, the state's
economy appears to be climbing out of a deep, dark hole. mostly due to Barack Obama.

The Republicans' ONLY chance to win in November is an economic collapse.
Good news for America is bad news for the party that said, "Let Detroit die."

Subject: Iranian mosquito boats

That picture is deceptive.
That small boat is far enough away from the Navy ship that it is not a threat.
It is in international waters so our Navy can't fire lawfully on a boat or ship that is not threating them.

Believe me when I say after the Cole incident that no small boat is going to get anywhere close enough to one
of our Navy ships to damage them with explosives. Even in United States waters, there is a perimeter set up
around Navy ships. The Coast Guard keeps small boats from crossing it, if one does then watch standards
aboard the Navy ship have orders to blow it out of the water before it gets close enough to do any damage.
Before I retired from the Navy, during Desert Storm, Iranian small boats tried harassing our ships.
A few well place 5 inch cannon shots across their bows turned them around fleeing back to their ports.
No, Obama doesn't need to micro-manage the Navy. All he has to do is give them the freedom to
protect their ships with whatever means is necessary.
 John in Issaquah, WA 

John, thanks for that.

You know me - not one to argue, but at the very least,
aren't those boats a threat in that they must be watched vigilantly 24/7?

Aren't they a little like the Soviet Migs that used to blaze towards our coasts,
causing our jets to scramble and warn them off?

Subject: Iran killed more American soldiers than any country since Vietnam???

When and where? Are you talking about in the Iraq war??


WE wrongfully invaded Iraq, and in doing so we posed a direct and very serious threat to Iran!

You just changed the subject - does that mean I won?
The subject was "Who made the IEDs?"

If China were to invade Canada would we have the need and
the right to help our neighbors fight these foreign invaders!!

Dude, we're not arguing about the fairness of invasions.
We're arguing about who supplied the IEDs that killed our soldiers.

I stopped donating last month because I think you pander to your Jewish readers far too much.

I assume I have Jewish readers, but I can't name one Jewish contributor.
If I'm pandering to them, I'm doing a really lousy job of it.

You talk like a biased right-wing Jew.

No, I talk like someone who knows who built the IEDs.
You have very strong opinions about this, yet you don't know who built the IEDs?

Tell me, did China supply North Vietnam with arms forty five years ago?

I'll begin to donate again when I see a change.
 Tim in Muldraugh

I'm not sure you're being logical.
How can I change the fact that the IEDs came from Iran?

You're suggesting those tens of thousands of IEDs did not come from Iran?

Do you at least get that most people accept that they came from Iran?

Last thing, try to understand that I can't have an opinion without pissing someone off.
I have to be really good for a long time just to get that first donation.

But as soon as I have an opinion about Catholics or Eldrick or guns or guitar players,
I start pissing people off and sooner or later everybody has a reason to not contribute.

And with whom will you argue if  ceases to exist
because my opinions didn't match everyone else's all the time?

"Taste Worth Dying For!"
Man has heart attack at Heart Attack Grill


In a story almost too bizarre to be true, a man suffered a heart attack after eating
a "triple bypass burger" at the Heart Attack Grill in downtown Las Vegas.

The restaurant's website proudly proclaims the menu offers, "Taste Worth Dying For!"
(The man survived his attack.)

Still, it was the first actual known cardiac incident at the Heart Attack Grill.
"He was having the sweats and shaking," said "Nurse" Bridgett, who was working
at the time of the incident, told Fox5. (Employees are given fake medical titles.)

"I actually felt horrible for him because tourists were taking photos of him as if it
were some type of stunt. We would never pull a stunt like that," said "Doctor Bosso."

Subject: Re: Who is a threat to world peace...

Hey Bart,

In response to Michael Rivero's listing of some facts you state:

> 'Iran has killed more American soldiers than any country since Vietnam.'

Could you please offer some substantiation for this claim? 

Since I'm only hearing from one side on this, I'm forced to consider I may be wrong.

But if I were to pull back on my assertion that the American-killing IEDs came from Iran,
from where did the IEDs actually come?   I assume C-4 isn't found naturally in Iraq.

And if it turns out I'm right, will that change anything?

Also, as for Vietnam killing American soldiers, exactly where did this take place? 


It certainly wasn't in Cincinnati. 
Could it be that they were killed as part of an invading army in the Vietnamese 'Homeland'? 

And killed for no good reason, to boot.
 Don, pillar, Shingle Springs

I think I see what's happening here.
You and I are arguing about different things.

You're saying invasions are bad,
and I'm saying Iran produced the soldier-maiming IEDs.

Maybe we're both right?

There was some chipotle sauce on the chicken, too.

Subject: a riddle

What's the difference between the Catholic church and NAMBLA?

One is an organization run by creepy old perverts who like to diddle little boys.

The other one has no position regarding birth control.

Jokes aside, the real deal here is the big-money Corporathugs once again using
the useful idiot soldiers of the "Culture War"  as a smokescreen to divert attention,
anger, and energy away from their non-stop economic raping and looting.

The immediate takeaway here is that if we grant "religious" exemptions to companies
that want to save money by denying healthcare to employees, then look next for the
entire Fortune 500 to find Jeebus.

Follow The Money. Always.
