Hillary Clinton Opened Door to Key U.S. Shift Toward Iran Nuclear Deal (Normal People Group)

WASHINGTON—Hillary Clinton, in her last months as secretary of state, helped open the door to a dramatic shift in U.S. policy toward Iran: an acceptance that Tehran would maintain at least some capacity to produce nuclear fuel, according to current and former U.S. officials.

In July 2012, Mrs. Clinton’s closest foreign-policy aide, Jake Sullivan, met in secret with Iranian diplomats in Oman, but made no progress in ending the dispute over Iran’s nuclear program. In a string of high-level meetings here over the next six months, the secretary of state and White House concluded that they might have to let Iran continue to enrich uranium at small levels, if the diplomacy had any hope of succeeding.

“She recognized the difficulty of reaching a solution with zero enrichment,” said Mr. Sullivan, who now serves as Mrs. Clinton’s top campaign adviser on both domestic issues and foreign policy.

This is what Hillary Clinton will be up against (Hillary Group)

This uber-secret pro-Republican group has already spent as much as Bernie Sanders had spent on his total campaign (through July 2015). They have been airing 'feel good' ads about the Republican Party where everyone farts rainbows and Xanax is free to everyone.

Any candidate who ignores the money and power behind these uber-secret groups will fail miserably. You can ignore discussing money in politics, but as I've said before; this is how the game is being played. The Hillary Campaign understands this and is building a 'war chest' (along with the DNC and other related PACs) to take on these shadow groups.

Just a FYI.

Variety of Polls: Hillary vs The Clowns (Hillary Group)

Although the 2016 presidential election is still a long way off, 2016 polls for possible match-ups are already being taken. For each poll, the blue slice represents the named Democrat; red the named Republican, with the remainder other and/or undecided. Below each pie is the source, release date, sample size and margin of error.

She is still doing well against almost every GOP clown in a variety of polls.

Try it. It really works.

I’m on “the wall” at HRC Campaign HQ



Yea, I’m back. I just couldn’t stay away. I decided that if the Hit Squad is successful in getting me, then so be it.

I’m willing to put my money where my interests are; electing a Democrat to the White House. I, like Hillary, am willing to “walk the walk”.

Some people are estimating that the 2016 Presidential Election cycle will see in excess of $3 billion being spent. I know that’s an obscene amount of money but it’s how the game is played. Hopefully in future elections we will see campaign finance reform, but until then……

I truly believe that the GOP doesn’t care much about which Clown will wear the Red Nose. They will just raise a ‘Nations Ransom’ to give them the ability to go after Hillary, which they are already doing. They are in the process of enlisting a bunch of Slugs to do their dirty work for them because they know they don’t have a “plan” for this country other than trying to bring down Hillary.

The HRC Campaign is building a solid network of Democrats in and out of office to help her in her quest for the White House. The Democratic Party understands the importance of this election.

So, break your Piggy Bank, sell a body organ, or anything you can to help out. The stakes are far too high this election cycle. We can’t erase the results of the last several years by giving the GOP the White House.

I’m looking forward to seeing all the exploding GOP heads when Hillary Clinton becomes our next President. Now is the time.

Has anyone did the ECT thing? Or know someone.....

I am apparently considered 'treatment resistant'. My drug pusher doc has me on a new heavy anti-psychotic to see if they work. It's a real 'zombie drug'. But he's really pushing the ECT.

Just curious if anyone has done ECT or know someone who has. What is your impression? Good? Bad? Nothing? It's a little (okay, a lot) scary but "they" tell me it's a fairly common treatment.

Thank you.


I'm dreaming of a Black (and White) Christmas

I spent a few nights driving around in my motorized vehicle taking pics of Holiday Lights. Listening to one of those Radio Stations that plays Christmas Music 24 hours a day and the motorized vehicle's heater keeping me nice and warm made for an easy photo outing.

Ideally I would have stopped at each location, got out and setup a tripod and taken the pics all proper like. But that's too much work for photos that I may never print.

I set the ISO to 4000 and adjusted aperture to keep my shutter speeds around 1/125. Kept it simple. Less Brain Damage.



















And for those of you that absolutely positively have to have COLOR in your holiday light picture:::



Thanks so much for looking.

How technology is changing our minds for the better

Blame it on the apps. When technology isn't distracting us from driving (causing accidents — or at least some unnerving swerving), it's pulling our attention away from work, making us less productive. Smartphone games steal time from our families, and apps suck our downtime into a black hole of "Wait, what time is it?"

We are getting dumber and less compassionate because we are using our phones more than our brains, right? So assert writers like Nick Carr, Jaron Lanier and others. In response, we are planning phone-free vacations and doing weekend tech detoxes. But what if all that thinking about the evils of tech is just wrong — or at least overblown?

In "Smarter Than You Think: How Technology is Changing our Minds for the Better," author Clive Thompson asserts that as technology gets smarter, so are we — it is a net gain. Not that our current tools are perfect: "The arguments about the dangers of tech are about consumption. Are we too distracted to be able to focus? I actually agree with some of [those arguments]. Our tools really have been pecking at us like ducks and we have to get away from that. But my book is looking at something different — what it means for the individual to express their thoughts and think socially with other people. To bounce ideas ideas off of other people more easily and to solve problems with other people. I found those trends to be very powerful and I was convinced that this was a net boon for most people's everyday thoughts," he says on the TechCrunch video below.

I have mixed feelings about this contention. Being a bit of a Tree Hugger I enjoy walks/hikes without any 'wired' connection. Clears the head. I Day Dream, which for me is a good thing.
