Breaking down the new Iran deal by WBEZ's Worldview on #SoundCloud
The United States, China, Russia, France, United Kingdom, Germany and Iran have reached a comprehensive deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for the easing of international sanctions.

Story
Tagline
Liberal
Introduction
Aside from being a cat chair I am into Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, gangster movies, A Song of Ice and Fire, classic rock, blues, jazz, drinking pool side, looking at pictures of our beautiful planet, random hangouts. Political posts early and often, this world isn't all bits and bytes. Proud Democrat. Fan of the Cubs, Bears, Bulls, English Premier League.

I need food, water, shelter, great ideas, and political snark. If you cannot tell when I am being serious, please ask me. There are many serious issues that need to be discussed, but at the same time many of them need to be poked fun at in a major way.

I am best described as a non-partisan liberal. I endorse most posts, but some I throw out there because they are interesting.
