Iran To Push Population Growth Once Again?

Countries, when they are in conflict or war, they always think that a larger population makes them stronger.... Practically, Iran is in war with the U.S.

Condemn Child Marriage

"Every year hundreds of Iranian girls under the age of ten are forced to marry even though it’s illegal. There is a mounting online international campaign in opposition to legislation pending in the Iranian parliament. This legislation would make it legal for girls between the ages of 9 and 13 to be married off by their parents without the consent of a court. This petition urges UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, who is working to end the practice of child marriage, to publicly oppose the proposed Iranian law."

Comment: If this bit of legislation passes in Iran, it shows how backwards they really are.

"Fundamentalism means never having to open your mind".

Blocking Unwanted Calls

My prayers about an efficient and effective way to deal with phone solicitors and predictive dialers have been answered.

Through, order for $59:
T-lock Incoming PRO Call Blocker with LCD Display and Blacklist:
    Blocks up to 1,500 telephone & fax numbers (up to 16 digits each)
    Stores up to 100 telephone numbers as incoming calls
    Stores up to 50 telephone numbers as outgoing (dialed) calls
    LCD display has 4 levels of brightness
    Line-powered (no external power or batteries needed ** Please ignore battery compartment).

Since plugging it in (took 2 minutes), no more predictive calls have rang my phone & outfits that do call are easy to thwart by pressing the call block select button.

How Long The Economic Stagnation?

Q: Is the end of the yield famine still far away?

A: Yes. Very far away. We’re in a long-term slump due to massive over indebtedness. We’ve simply got too much debt for the economy to return to normal growth. Worse, none of the usual policy fixes — like debt-funded government spending — will work. Washington is likely to make our economic problems worse, not better, because the only “cure” is time — time for the burden of debt to decline.
