… You have Got to Be Kidding ! [#iran Nuclear Deal][#Iranian Majlis]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 22nd,2015

.. yea , you have it ..

.. you have really got to be kidding ..

.. this Iran Nukes Deal [text — here] is enough of an obscene joke . It really wants to make me puke all over the place . Yea , and the Iranians are celebrating all over it …

.. [h/t — NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog article ..

.. the agreement explicitly provides for review by the Iranian Majlis [parliament] . At least what stands for one . But something important is missing . Something that is extremenly important ..

.. any mention of participation of review , implementation , or participation by our Congress …. Yep , the United States Congress …

.. A very big Whoops !! …

… Well , Scotland has Spoken [#independence vote]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,September 20th,2014

.. and , I have to admit , I am surprised …

.. Scotland rejected independence by a margin of 55.4% to 44.6% . That is a margin of 10.8% ….

.. [h/t — Wikipedia.org(Scotland Independence Referendum)]..
.. [link] to the article …

.. that is a very healthy margin …

.. I thought that it would be closer than that . The way that the vote was trending , I thought the independence campaign just might win …. just … but it did not ….

.. so , what do I think about it ? … I think that Scots have a strong nationalistic sense of self , and are very self – confident about it . Sometimes , it can tend to border on arrogance . Gee , who does that sound like ?? …

.. You got it . The U.S.A. … A great many of our country ‘ s ancestors are either Scottish , English , or Scotch – Irish , along with Irish … the arrogance tends to run in the British Isles , and we here in the ” Colonies ” inherited it…. in spades …

.. except Great Britain I do not think ever expected that their former 13 colonies to become the economic , military , and social colossus that we have become , and still are …

… Baseball should ban ARod …

Alex Rodriguez in a game on 5/26/08

… Alex Rodriguez … (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

.. and do so , now ! .

.. Having a player such as Alex Rodriguez on the field right now is an outrage . He has been suspended for a great many games by baseball . Albeit , it was done under the Joint Drug Program , and under the Collective Bargaining Agreement .

.. His case is unique . He hass , and has done so an an illegal manner . he has obstructed a legal invesigation , and has obstructed and intefered with MLB ‘ s own investigation into the Biogenesis scandal . He has grossly flouted the rules , and has done so on multiple occasions . His prescence on the playing field is a disgrace , and brings dishonour to the game . Yes , there should be due process . But , what kind of due process ?

.. Normally , a player can appeal a suspension , and continue to play . However , the commisioner ‘ s office has wide powers . They have been tirmmed , somewhat , given the strength and power of the players ‘ union . But , not much .

.. The commissioner was given those powers when the office of the commissioner was created for a reason . The commissioner was given enormous power in order to act “in the best interests of baseball . ” I believe that those interests would  be best served by sending Alex Rodriguez to the bench . For good . It should do so , now .
