Political Levitas

Tea is nought but this: first you heat the water, then you make the tea. Then you drink it properly.

A distrust and belief in the ineptitude of government is part of American culture.

A frustrating visit to and encounter with the person behind the desk at the DMV is the sterotype.

Yet, at the top levels of government, individuals move effortlessly and seamlessly between the private and public sectors.

Says a man who spent much of his career in the public sector.

What are you talking about?

He spent the majority of his adult life in the private sector where he worked as an announcer, actor, union leader, and real estate developer.

He also had more private sector experience than a whole host of national politicians post the Truman era.

...I'm saying it's not a silly comment, it's just plain ignorant.

Perhaps.

Still puzzled as to why people who think so little of government are so attracted to it.

"I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque
being built in Toronto. I think it should be the goal of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs. Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance."

"That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque; thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque. We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, "The Turban Cowboy," and the other, a
topless bar, would be called "You Mecca Me Hot."

"Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called Iraq of Ribs."

Across the street there could be a lingerie store called "Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret," with sexy mannequins in the window modeling the goods", and on the other side a liquor store called "Morehammered."

"All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance theydemand of us.

reminds me of the third world cult of personality much of the MSM showed towards Obama and Michelle.

remember the media fawning over Michelle's beauty...... and her arms...... the new Jackie O......

and the crease in Obama's pants..... the water dripping from his physique as emerged from the ocean........ the new Camelot......

What about Trump's hair?

Ezra makes a great point, media myrmidons were in the room and watched the setup, and did not support the reporter asking a real question.

Sounds like a college frat. Want access to the club? Here the rules.

always interesting to see an industry eat itself.

Senator Graham's remarks about Iranians:

"Everything I learned about Iranians I learned working in the pool room," Graham said.
"I met a lot of liars, and I know Iranians are liars."

------------------------------ ------------------------------ ---


Open Letter to Senator Graham


I am a Patriotic Iranian-American, a wife, a mother, a constitutional defender, a community leader and a tax-payer.

And you Sir, are misinformed.

Your comment about Iranians being liars is vitriolic and offensive and bespeaks mountains about how little you know Iranians and/or the Iranian history and culture.

You Sir, are ill-informed.

We the Iranians, through Cyrus the Great brought religious freedom and tolerance to the world 2500 years ago. We illuminated the hallways of superstition with Avecinna's science and medicine while the rest of Europe was drowning in the dark ages. We introduced spirituality and love of mankind through Rumi when the rest of the world was preoccupied with conquest and war.

And you Sir, are un-enlightened.

It is Iranian-American Anousheh Ansari, First Female Private Space Explorer who opened the frontiers of space to Private citizens. It is Iranian-American Pierre Omidvar, CEO of Ebay who recalibrated the boundaries of Internet trade. It is Iranian-American Dara Khosrowshahi, President and CEO, Expedia, Inc who has redefined travel for the world. It is Iranian-American Atossa Soltani, founder and President of Amazon Watch who has brought protection to the Amazon against Corporate plunder. It is Iranian-American Parisa Khosravi Senior Vice President for CNN Worldwide, who has brought balanced and fair reporting to the world..

And you Sir, are un-educated.

It is the likes of Iranian Shirin Ebadi, Human Rights activist and Nobel Laureate; Iranian-American Goli Ameri, Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs; Iranian-American Jimmy Delshad, former Mayor of Beverly Hills; Honorable Judge Shahla Sabet, that have brought diversity and tolerance to the fields of Law, Human rights and politics.

And you Sir, are bigoted and divisive.

Your poor attempt at climbing the political ladder by demonizing a rich, vast and convoluted nation of People is deceptive, dishonest and disingenuous.

And you Sir, are the liar.

We demand a retraction AND an apology.


Alaleh Kamran

Attorney At Law

Iranian-American, wife, mother,

constitutional defender, community leader

Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds
