U.S. may use secret team to cinch Iran nuclear deal: WSJ, Tehran Times, May 24, 2014

U.S. and European officials said it was possible, if not likely, Messrs. Burns and Sullivan could re-engage in the diplomatic process with Iran in a final push to get the agreement over the line. They stressed that no final decision has been made.

Both men are held in high esteem by President Barack Obama, said these officials, and Iran might need to see the White House’s direct commitment to the final agreement. Negotiations through the P5+1 format can also be unwieldy due to the sometimes competing interests of the Western powers and Russia and China.

ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith refused to backdown on Friday after he came under fire for defending Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s comments about bigotry in a recent interview. Despite being labeled an “Uncle Tom” and a “sellout” by some in the black community, Smith made it clear that he stands by what he said “100-fold.”

Regardless, he said he doesn’t care who disagrees with him and they would be smart not to expect an apology.

As we head into Memorial Day Weekend I thought I’d dust of this old history lesson. Seems there’s always been some men who who will do what’s necessary to support and defend the tribe as well as another group that always whines about the way they do it.. but are happy to claim the benefits

This dates back at least 5000 years and has to do with one of man’s most important inventions..

A Lesson in History

Conservatives have earned this post, liberals, well I guess they have too, just in a different way.

Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of…

VA HEALTHCARE=OBAMACARE? (video at link)

this is not simply a management issue, and this is not simply the malfeasance of general shinseki. maybe he made some mistakes, but this is because the v.a. is the purest example of total government-run health care, okay? it’s a little pocket of socialized medicine. it looks just like britain and canada with rationing, price controls, long lines, bureaucratics inefficiencies, including the fact that bureaucracy has tried to cover up 40 deaths at least and long lines in about six or eight v.a. centers…
