Let’s all thank God today that our government isn’t beating and killing us with clubs and axes. Now that Gov. Sanford has sinned, Farrah and Michael have died, Obama has cap and trade and health care issues to pass NOW, there probably won’t be much news on what is happening in Iran, besides the fact that journalists are either kicked out or locked up in that country. The twitterers and bloggers are all that is left and that’s IF anyone can get internet. I hear satellite dishes are illegal and being confiscated by militia.
Lest we forget….
Tweets from a twitterer whom I shall not name who hasn’t been heard from since June 24th and no longer has a presence on Twitter with that name:

Well…you get the picture….
There are reports of arrests of entire Iranian newspaper staffs, reports of families being charged $5000-$14,000 to receive the bodies of their loved ones, 40 journalists arrested in the past 2 days. “No mosques are allowed to hold funerals.” ” Doctors are being forced to write “death in operating room” as cause of death for recent martyrs.”(unconfirmed reports that some are refusing) “GC speaker (guardian council) says it was a healthy election; there was no fraud.” ” People are so sad and angry about what is happening.”
These are just some of the tweets I have been following. Well, I’m certainly glad we’re not going to share our hot dogs now with Iranian ambassadors. Not after this nightmare.
Mr. President, now do you think you can openly and firmly condemn this regime?
