Happy start of a brand-new week, everybody! Our podcaster extraordinaire, Burr Deming, returns with another doubleheader of exquisitely crafted efforts. The first deals with the recent letter 47 Republican Senators signed to be sent to Iran’s Supreme Leader, while our own President was in direct negotiation with him to keep Iran from producing a nuclear weapon! These senators have been dubbed “traitors” by many and have been victins of heaps of well-deserved blowback for their rash and blatantly political, anti-Obama action, In this podcast, Burr reminds us that this cirrent taudry Republican attempt at sabotage was not the only time a Republican actively tried to short-curcuit a Democratic President’s peace efforts.
Burr tells us, “A few years ago, documents and recordings were declassified that confirmed the worst rumors. A private citizen of the United States had secretly contacted foreign governments and sabotaged peace talks in Vietnam. That private citizen was Richard Nixon.
It was hard to imagine anything worse, until a group of conservative Senators tried to sabotage negotiations that might stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

In this second podcast, called “Ferguson – Police as Tax Farmers in Ancient Rome”, Burr gives us insight as to why police are so distrusted amd hated by the local population in Ferguson, MO. He likens the police there to corrupt tax collectors in Ancient Rome.
Burr tells us, “The official tax system in the Roman empire was strikingly similar to the unofficial tax system of Ferguson, Missouri. The Emperor Diocletian put an end to it. It is way past time Missouri did the same. “
