Can’t decide

Hesam-Fetrati-9Hessam Fetrati

I can’t decide which one gets more on my nerves.
This kind of mainstream sensationalism or the progressive side of the blogosphere turning a blind eye on any misdeed by anyone “perceived” as a darling-imperialism-basher.
And that includes friends and favorite blogs.

    But Homeyra, Although I’m not so simple minded to some Gifts! as Pedestrian has mentioned in his/her weblo but prefer to think positive in this movement.

    P, Legofish is very famous in the blogosphere.
    You are wise Boogi and right to be positive. In my frustration I was trying to find someone to blame:)

    Sorry Homeyra. He’s a personal acquaintance, so I didn’t think he’d be so famous😛

    Well, while I’m glad they’re holding off the imperialists, I sure don’t think they’re darlings anymore, and yoiks that MSM coverage of what I’m coming to think of as The Twitter Murders just sent me through the roof! There’s another bit on the danger of this stuff I found today here. While I’m much relieved that everyone seems to be realizing the mechanism through which too much mischief has been, and can continue to be, made manifest, I’m still terrified for all humanity. If we can’t get the lid on this “social media” thing, all humanity is finished. The fascists will have become completely unstoppable, no way to put together a big enough revolt to even slow them up.

    This is SERIOUS stuff. I’m pretty sure Neda would agree, if only she were alive to tell us about it. 😦

    i’m not quite sure what you mean; but I like this cartoon you have posted. It is so complex; and so brilliant!

    99, you know my opinion. It won’t change! Do I qualify as a stubborn:)
    Naj, I am surprised by the left side of the blogosphere coverage of the Iranian elections. They like you know who whatever he does.

    While watching that history of the gig between Iran and the U.S. you emailed me, I was struck by two things: [1] the size of the angry mobs in the streets, stumping for the return of Khomeini; and [2] the narrator’s use of the term “Iranian intransigence”. It has been my experience with Iranians that “intransigence” is definitely part of your national personality… just as “American exceptionalism” seems to be a conditioned mental attitude even in the very most liberal and critical thinkers here, I’d say “Iranian intransigence” has a similar hold on the people of Iran.

    You just can’t help it! 😛

    lol 99:) Are you thinking of our conversations lately?
    Maz Jobrani, an Iranian American stand up comedian has a line: “We used to have an empire”!
    Maybe that’s where this comes from!🙂🙂

    Well, my big darling imperialism basher is fully under the microscope and I’m finding an extraordinary number of flaws and down-right faults previously hidden in the glow.
    Little or no “Real Change” as promised.

    I can guess who you are talking about. Some say imperialists created him to bash them while their are furthering their plans!
