[quote]This article is just as likely to be as accurate as your link from the WP.[/quote] That article does nothing of the sort, it's just an Obama hit piece by Elliot Abrams, a notorious neocon and Israel-firster. David Ignatious is a serious foreign policy journalist who actually explains the dif...

KCT and Cajun, do yourselves a favor and read about the details of the deal rather than buy into right-wing propaganda that Obama is giving his blessing Iranian nukes.

This deal isn't about how much we're going to give Iran, we aren't giving them money, land or weapons. This deal is about much Iran is willing to give us to lift the sanctions. Iran is willing to let us monitor their nuclear facilities in a manner that no western power would ever allow? The problem ...

I agree with the point system, but I think it should be based on socio-economic status, not race or ethnicity. For example, if you were raised without a father and your mother is a high school dropout earning less than $20,000 per year, you get extra points. This system would benefit the poor White ...
