Letter to Iran

Those senators who sent that letter to Iran - all forty-seven of them are the lowest form of reprobates in American politics. It shows how far we have devolved in American politics.

Say what you want about our foreign policy, but for a legislative branch to circumvent the executive branch's peaceful negotiation and undermine our foreign policy efforts is awful.

They should be sent to gitmo without due process. The deuce that authored the letter, Cotton form Arkansas, has said in the past that the only thing wrong with Gitmo is there are too many empty beds. There's 47 that could be filled immediately. Better yet, send them to the ISIS.

I meant douche instead of deuce. Just caught that.

The letter didn't work. This nuclear deal could be huge for Obomba and the rest of the world.

I'm actually genuinely glad the deal is happening. Lets put an end to this shit.

Hopefully the political follow through exists in the US. Douche bags.

It's a great deal. Iran bent over backwards. Now maybe we should demand the same transparency regarding Israel's nuclear program.

The vast majority of them are mid-level reprobates, there are a few good ones, tho. (think 'bell curve')

However, there is not really any 'dealing' with religious fanatics, christers included.

More people have died terrible deaths in the name of (a) god (<- not capitalized on purpose) than tobacco or alcohol, the 2nd & 3rd (not in order) forms of death on the planet.

(remember, to far too many, money is another god)

my opinion is that you litterally cannot be even a semi-decent human being and be in american politics.

The current game of politics here just makes it so the decent have no chance to suceed at all. You HAVE to be a scumbag in order to have any success.

Even if they started out good, and tried to be good, if they moved along in the political game at all, they simply had to have compromised and have been corrupted.
Therefor, regardless of what they say, they cannot be trusted in the slightest.... and for any true progress to be made in this country, everyone currently playing politics needs to be thrown out on their ass.

When you need to be sponsored to get to the show, it's very unlikely you will please the audience. Scum all.
