    Here is the salient phrase in the article.
    "a deal not yet done whose details are not yet known"

    No wonder members of the Senate (whom ratify treaties) are near mutiny. What is the hell is this President doing dealing with a nation, in complete secrecy, that considers us the great Satan?

    Why the hell has he not informed the American People of what he is up to, especially the Senate which has the responsibility to ratify treaties.

    Well the answer is quite obvious. This President is going around the constitution again, he has no intention of involving the Senate. He intents to take the deal to the UN and sing about it.
    That ought to piss off the other 53 Senators and the American people.

    I don't have to agree with everything in a post to like it. It was well thought out and well written. It continues and promotes further conversation vs insulting someone or calling what they've written drivel.

    Again Marazul, these forums and threads would be boring if everyone agreed on everything. If you have a different opinion on a thread's topic you should express it instead of trying to shut down the views of those you disagree with.

    It makes for a more entertaining debate and you just might change someone's opinion.

    Not trying to shutdown anything. That is what you guys (moderators) do when you ban interesting people. I am simple trying to point out that the issue at hand is probably survival,
    With or without the high ground, we should take action that insures survival, not some silly agreement that is more fair than we have been in the past.

    But I will continue when the motivation strikes me, even if you are not entertained. Funny now that you mention it, the motive to entertain you has never occurred to me.

    PapaG was interesting in the same way that your physician might find a peculiar mole on your back interesting.

    Well then you must be pleased that they shutdown his input, hey! To me it was just one less now of few interesting voices. The way Sly is heading, I think he soon will make it one less not so entertaining voice.

    I do see his point though about entertaining, now that he point it out, I recognize he strives to do just that. Not so sure entertaining is in order though when discussing Iran and Nucs.

    You entertain me all the time and you're one of my favorite posters.

    Really! Gosh! I was sure you just accused me of shutting down opinions. That wouldn't be very nice, nothing to differ with then. But then some folk like it where the group speaks as one.

    I spent a few hours a couple of different days here recently at a Rotory Club that invited me to be a guess speaker. I couldn't help but notice how like minded the people were.
    The never disagreed with each other. They took two votes while I was there, both resulted in unanimous approval. Not sure how well I entertained them though, they devote much effort to funding scholarships and raising funds for many things. And here I am, speaking about how the more public money that is raised to help young people with education, is just helping raising the tuition costs. And raising the cost without an improvement in the product unless more Progressives is the mission.

    But then, contention makes things better, I have no fear of doing my part, just like the one eyed man in the remote village of all blind people. They hung him for not seeing their way.

    I guess it only takes the applause of one, to be rated, entertaining.

    you dont need applause to be entertaining. I find you to be great fun. Although sly is right, you are a little rough around the edges and somethings that sound funny in person dont come across as favorably in print..... but i have no issue with it or you.

    Sly may sound right, but I think he is leaking left. Perhaps he can't help it, being an inclusive maximizer facilitator.

    Big Sly and little Marzul seem to be making up there quite well. Back when every thread got hijacked by PapaG or Crandc, it was easier to Fight the Hijack.

    Yeah, because the Soviets and the Shiite mullahs have exactly the same motivations. Usually you're just whiny, but now you've ventured into being moronic.
