Half of Iran's population is under 35. If enough of that demo get involved things will change.

I think people are underestimating the depravity of a religious government. They are just waiting until they feel they've got adequate control over the media (cell phones and such) and then the genocide will occur.

We are not dealing with a government that has one iota of decency.

Reminds me of the Arab Spring. They'll make noise for a month or two but nothing will really change. But I am a pessimist...

Iranian citizens are fight with sticks and stones.

The police and military are fighting back with guns and rifles.

Military has been brought in from Syria to crush protests.

The internet has been severely restricted.

2000+ people have died. Thousands of protesters have been arrested.

Conservative governments are a blight on humanity.

Any chance the Iranians could achieve complete government overhaul without a revolution?

Iranian women are Veterans of the Psychic Wars.

... .

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating up our brains

Oh, please, don't let these shakes go on

You ask me why I'm weary
Why I can't speak to you
You blame me for my silence
Say it's time I changed and grew
But the war's still going on, dear
And there's no end that I know
And I can't say I'm forever

I can't say if we're ever gonna be free

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating up our brains

Oh, please, don't let these shakes go on

I worked with a couple of Persian chicks a few years ago when we were working in Trinidad. They're hot as ----, and sweet-natured, too.

A far cry from their hirsute, beastly cousins next door in Pakistan.

But hey, guns are outlawed there, just like liberals want here, right?

I'm a liberal and I've never called for guns to be outlawed.

I have asked for vision tests, mental examinations and registrations.

But never a ban.

Meanwhile. You support politicians who want to turn America into Iran.

Maybe the problem is the religious authoritarian theocracy TrumpAHumps wet dream about.

Some.

Many want to keep them because they don't like how people like you are trying to push your sky daddy beliefs into government and turn us into a version of Iran.

#14,

Not a problem at the state level. If a locality wants to have the muslim prayer blasted out over speakers, have at it. I wont live there. The people I live around dont like that. Problem comes in when a muslim family (or liberal) comes in and wants it blasted even though the locality doesnt want it. That's how liberals do. Come in and change an otherwise happy place.

You are correct. Pakistani women are horribly beastly.

Happy. Sure. That's why y'all are so miserable you're always creating boogeymen that are coming to get you.

In any case, you're full of ----. You only say this because it's not happening.

If it happened, you'd be against it and you'd loudly make it known. You're not fooling anyone.

Yeah, who would want to live in places of economic vibrancy, culture, arts, science...

You ---- on cities because you're a wannabe hick.

But the reality is you depend on them. Rural areas depend on them.

Blue urban areas are the economic engines of the country and each state.

So suck it you ignorant gas bag.

The city is where the most taxpayers live. After the drastic reduction in the tobacco market and sending all the textile and furniture jobs overseas, the state would go broke if it weren't for Charlotte (banking) and the Research Triangle. Not to mention the tax revenue from all the tech corporations (Apple, Google, IBM, Red Hat, Cisco, et. al.).

The people who fill those jobs (many from the Liberal parts of the country) don't want to live by your rules, BOAZ, and they are outnumbering you. Conservatism has no particular right to govern, you know, it has to compete, and whether the country is a "democracy", the outcome will ultimately be decided by whoever gets the most votes (hint: that's what "democracy" actually means in the US). The Research Triangle is one of the fastest growing metro area in the country now. You're going to have to learn to live with all those New Yorkers and Californians.

The big cities would starve to death without the agricultural output of the rural areas you ignorant gas bag.

Unless you think food just magically appears at Whole Foods.

Are you trying to say Bo and Luke wouldn't need a half million acre Monsanto-powered factory farm to keep their pantry full?

You are welcome.

As long as city-dwellers are willing to pay for "agricultural output" farmers will produce. It's called capitalism, and, in this country at least, it rises above "politics". Farmers don't want your gratitude, they want your money.
