congress a while ago?
Caught the end of it. The man is a true leader who doesnt speak in circles.


if yea what was your
thought about the Iranian deal?
Ah yes....the deal to set parameters to reach a deal by June 30th.
Meanwhile, Russia agrees to sell missile defense systems to Iran.....

"" The Kremlin said President Vladimir
Putin signed a decree ending a self-
imposed ban on delivering the S-300
anti-missile rocket system to Iran,
removing a major irritant between the
two after Moscow canceled a
corresponding contract in 2010 under
pressure from the West.

The United States and Israel had
lobbied Russia to block the missile
sale before it did so in 2010, saying
the S-300 system could be used to
shield Iran's nuclear facilities from
possible future air strikes.""
Reuters article.

What a deal Barak! Why wld they need to protect their nuclear facilities now? Hmmm......

I wonder if the israelis are up for a trade? Netanyahu is a leader I could really get behind.

@Joshwatter: I have a question since youre Jewish. Why do the American Jewish always vote Democrat?
In 2012, they voted 69% for Obama
In 2008, it was 78% for Obama
Im preceeding presidential elections the percentages were 76, 79, 78, 80 and so forth and so on......all for Dems.
Any insight?

Heres a link, btw.

@Joshwatter: Ah yes.....I found this online and it supports what you say.....

"" Orthodox Jews, who represent no more
than 10% of the United States' Jewish
population, tend to make up the majority
of Republican Jews.""

And it goes into greater detail about how non-Orthodox Jews vote Dem. They are some REAL liberal voters lol
