Can I Get Fooled Again?

Did I get my position wrong again? I supported, dare I say, right after 911, the Iraq War because I THOUGHT the Republican administration nincompoops knew what they were doing and possessed information I did not and could not possess. I thought on matters of war they would not lie. I have paid for my own personal humiliation and the naïveté of what I thought then ever since. Subsequently, after much observation of the explosively wretched conditions in Iraq after the US invasion and after much examination of what was being done in our name, I learned what the mendacious Republican Bush administration was really doing.

Now, again, I support President Obama's nuclear agreement with Iran but the immovable and all powerful Ayatollah Khamenei of Iran delivers a Bushian speech that spews the same old belligerent rhetoric that all religious and political extremists spew sometimes backing up their words with hostile actions ultimately killing thousands of innocents. They say it is about their belief system and culture which is, of course, the only right belief one can hold. We, in reality, know it is about leaderships' own power sold to a gullible, non-thinking, religiously uncritical and frightened public.

You can get fooled once as one so called US "president" said, but you can't get fooled again. Can I get fooled again? Say it ain't so and our negotiators know what they are doing because the stakes of this nuclear agreement are high. They are the stakes of war and peace. Innocent lives are held in the balance -- yours, mine, our nation's and the world's. Read the link here or below of the Ayatollah Khamenei’s speech and say I am not getting fooled again!

WHATEVER THE OUTCOME OF THE DEAL REPUBLICANS MUST BE KICKED OUT OF OFFICE AND NEVER LET THROUGH THE HALLS OF POWER AGAIN. MOBILIZE MILLIONS OF DEMOCRATS, PROGRESSIVES, AND OTHERS THROUGHOUT THE LAND TO MAKE SURE THE RANCID RACISTS NEVER COMMIT CRIMES IN OUR NAME YET ANOTHER TIME. VOTE DEMOCRAT AND ENSURE THE REST OF THE NATION DOES AS WELL!
