  • I feel sad for the people of Iran who were hopeful that they would have new President and something would change for better. People there want the same every day rights what we in U.S take for granted.


    Young people want more freedoms and they want Iran to be more open country.

  • Does anyone read the Wasginton Post? There were actual Iranians quoted as saying that they did not think that any change would come even with a new presidant.

  • I did not read that ibelongtojesus but I can beleive it. I am sure many Americas said there will be no changes even with a new president. The riots are a shocker to me because you do not see a lot of uprising against the government in that country.

  • Revolution and outrage are good for democracy.


     Unless of course it's coming from American Conservatives.  I recall a bunch of liberals on this site telling Tea Party participants that they are tools of media and Attorneys.  Telling people who discussed seceding that they were stupid.  So yeah, I guess revolution and outrage are good for democracy, unless you already live in a democracy.  Then it's 'get over it' and 'let it go'.

  • Anon I would have to disagree...we are seriously lacking some civil dissent. The fact that there are two parties in power and that is all, shows it. I think we all need to divorce both sides.
