Michael Weiss and the Iran-U.S. Hardline Nexus That Led Iranian-American to Evin Prison
How Daily Beast Editor, Michael Weiss Helped Send Iranian-American to Torture Chambers of Evin Prison

A disciple of Christopher Hitchens, Weiss shares the late British intellectual’s penchant for intellectual combat and a gift for the deft, savage phrase. Like him, Weiss fancies nostalgic ties to some radical left tradition. Also like Hitchens, he has the knack for popularizing neoconservative ideas in media-friendly sound bytes. Unlike Hitchens, Weiss has proven to be exceedingly opaque in terms of some of the political and financial alliances he’s made.

I’m voting for Trump.

There is a lot of tension right now. Unfortunately, there are a lot of politicians who depend on that animosity for their power. They need people to be poor so they can dangle that carrot in front of them.

Here’s what I’m thinking, Don’t piss on my neck and say that it’s raining. Hillary Clinton will piss on your neck and whisper in your ear that it’s raining. Donald Trump will stand behind you and piss on your neck, but he’ll tell you, “I’m pissing on you right now. How do you like that?”

I like to know, at least, what I’m getting.

  1. That is the thing, nobody is really sure. But one thing I know is that in the future people will only eat corn. I learned this from the movie “Interstellar.”

  2. isn’t there some funny story about how nasa spent all kinds of $ developing a no gravity pen, instead of using a pencil? when i need to shit, i do behind the nearest tree, and wipe my ass with a used dd coffee cup. something like that..

  3. NASA came up with something, perhaps it was the gel ballpoint pen? I know gels can write at any angle, even upside down, so that is a solution, i guess. it does seem funny when pencils and crayons would solve the problem simply.

    in the lab, we prohibit the use of pencils and crayons, because they smear, fade over time, and can easily be altered. so maybe that’s why billions of fed funds were spent perfecting gel technology….

  4. we put a concentrated standard into one of our prototypes today. should know in a couple of hours if we are in big-time monkey business, or not. the milestone here is we used a standard other than the ubiquitous air. maybe only hours away from the basis for a serious funding request. fingers crossed…

  5. I think NASA’s nuclear powered vacuum pencil sharpener was too expensive so they went with the pen.
    Can’t have all that conductive graphite floating into electrickery in space…

  6. some real groaners on this list:
