A note to remember, that Many Forget

After the September 11th, 2001 WTC Attacks, Arabs were dancing, Palestinians in East Jerusalem were celebrating, here, Lebanese children were firing off weapons in Celebrate, Here, and in the New Jersey streets in sight of the WTC towers, 5 Israeli Mossad were also seen dancing by many of the locals right as the first tower went up in flames and smoke, they were later arrested and found to be involved in the attacks, however were later deported back to Israel. As well as other theories abound, the Iranians were lighting candles and saying prayers for the Americans and foreigners who lost their lives in the horrendous attacks.

Even "sixty thousand spectators observed a minute of silence during a soccer match in Iran’s Azadi stadium, and hundreds of young Iranians held a candlelit vigil in Tehran for the victims of September 11 attacks. Even the routine chants of ‘death to America’ that have become a staple part of Friday prayers in Iran ceased. To exhibit such a degree of unanimity over a foreign policy issue was simply unprecedented in the recent history of the Islamic Republic."

So as the Iranian citizenry en mass in Tehran and across the country of Iran right now , in Pro-Democratic pro-tests. For whatever reasons they have afforded themselves to these actions against their current Theocracy. House wives, business men, Cab drivers, Restaurant owners, College students, pretty much all those that make their Countries gears run; are seemingly running headlong into a revolution.

Remember that it was never the general citizens of Iran that we had a problem with or vice versa. It was and is as the case many times throughout history, is that the Government causes the problems and not the Countries Citizens themselves.

So let us rally behind these Iranian Citizens who are risking their very lives to change their stars and make the future their own.

I personally was willing to let the Supreme leader of Iran and his Puppet goverment off the hook, if they had taken action to listen to their people, the ones that put them and keep them in power.
And yet he continued to berate America, and insult his own people.

So I also show my support For those brave Iranians trying to prove that they are not the lowest common denominator and their backs will no longer be walked upon by the elite who think they are God.

From North Korea to 'The Letter'; We have our work cut out for us

If the worst Economic Depression since the 1930's, the Iraq war, 1st and 2nd Amendment rights battles and violations, the debate on Universal Healthcare, Illegal immigration, Mexican Drug Czars, Presidential and Congressional disregard for the Unites States Constitution wasn't enough to cause you an aneurysm or at least a panic attack; now we may also have to worry again about North Korea.

It seems North Korea may launch a long-range ballistic missile towards Hawaii on American Independence Day, this is according to Japanese intelligence officials.

It is assumed to be a Taepodong-2 missle with a 4,000 miles +/- range, possibly to be launched in early July from Dongchang-ni on the North Korean coast.

Yomiuri Shimbun a Japanese Newspaper detailed information about the possibility of this launch. U.S. and Japanese intelligence satellites have collected and matched data relating to this issue.

{So as per the 1950's, be prepared to practice hiding under your wooden desks, since the Govt. agrees that it is effective in saving your life from a Nuclear blast.}

In action News... A 53 year old Woman from Arizona named Contreras, wrote a letter initially intended for Patrick Beck of whom is organizing a Tea Party march on Washington D.C. on July 4th, 2009. But posted it to Glen Beck who then put it up on his website here.

In Glen Becks interview with Contreras she details why she wrote it and her and Glen talk about how our Founding Fathers warned and warned us about complacency and how it would turn on us.

In the end when the Government doesn't fear the people, then the Citizenry are in deep trouble.

Which brings to light a 'New' book by Glen Beck, which has it roots in 'Common Sense'; and of course although it is in greatly diminished fashion today, we are taking about Thomas Paine's 'Common Sense': [Text Version - Actual Pages].

Whether you are a Democrat, a Republican, a Libertarian, a Constitutionalists, Green Party, some other from of Independent party or Just classified as an American Citizen.

I urge you all, no matter your opinions to take a look at 'The Letter' and if you agree Sign the Petition.

And as well, spend $7 bucks; it really isn't that much even in our tough economic times and read Glenn Becks 'Common Sense', because you can only form an educated opinion, (no matter your stance on the subject), if you actually educate yourself on the subject!

Thank you again all my readers, be safe, be smart and most of all... always use Common Sense.

If it looks like deception and smells like deception it is an Iranian Election Result

Granted it looks like some of the more recent U.S. Presidential elections, but it isn't; it is half a World away and happening in Iran.

Recently the Iranians held presidential elections as everyone knows, well most and as far as I can tell there were 4 Presidential nominees.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad : Abadgaran Party
Mir-Hossein Mousavi : Independent Reformist Party
Mohsen Rezaee : Independent Conservative Party
Mehdi Karroubi : Etemad-e-Melli Party

U.S. and European News outlets have expressed concern and doubts over the authenticity of the Election results.

With two-thirds of the votes counted, incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had won the election with 66% of the votes, and that Mir-Hossein Mousavi had received 33%. This was all according to the Islamic Republic News Agency.

However, The concern arose especially after Mousavi failed to win even his home town were he had unprecedented support.

30 different polling agencies had 30 different polling results for the election, 15 of them had poll results in Mousavi's favor while 15 had results for Ahmadinejad.

The reigning leader, or the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran; Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei approved the re-election of the incumbent President Ahmadinejad.

Although after nearly a week or more of huge country-wide protests by mainly the supporters of Presidential nominee Mousavi, plus the division of the nations ruling class over the election poll results, has caused the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to make 2 concessions in light of the protests and allow a partial recount to be reviewed and to have an investigation into the possible fraudulent election poll results.

A joint letter recently written by nominee Mousavi and former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami; Asked the Leaders of Iran to stop the violence and arrests of the non-violent protesters.

Which was in response to current numbers as of Monday this week that showed 7 dead and 15 others injured because of the Iranian riot police, who also seem to have motor bikers [*sorry couldn't find the video I saw*] randomly striking people in the street, like something out of a Mad Max movie or Akira.

Also Mousavi stated that "members of his election headquarters had been beaten "with batons, wooden sticks and electrical rods."" That and now Iran is trying to place blame on U.S. and Canadian News Sources saying that they had financed "deviant news sites" and are using their Revolutionary Guard to put a stop to actions by these sites they consider inflammatory.

However we shall see how this all unfolds as the week ends, since Thursday is when the Investigation into the Election poll fraud allegations is conducted.

I hope that peaceful steps are sought by the Iranian Government as well as the Iranian people and that This controversy takes a turn for the better.
