Iran says 'idiotic' new US sanctions shut doors of diplomacyPresident Hassan Rouhani went on to call the sanctions against Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei "outrageous and idiotic," especially since the 80-year-old Shiite cleric has no plans to travel to the United States.

UK foreign minister Hunt says cannot envisage joining U.S.-led war with IranBritain does not expect the United States to request that the United Kingdom joins a war with Iran and London would be unlikely to agree to join such a conflict, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said on Tuesday. "The U.S. is our closest ally, we talk to them the whole time, we consider any requests that they say carefully, but I cannot envisage any situation where they request or we agree to any moves to go to war," Hunt told parliament.

Toy Car for a Grown Up: 2013 Camaro SS Hot Wheels Edition Sources: NBA talks fewer games, in-season event

Toy Car for a Grown Up: 2013 Camaro SS Hot Wheels EditionThis special edition of the Camaro has just 824 miles on its odometer.There’s a somewhat common sentiment in the automotive world stating that when people get older, their toys only get bigger. A good example of this is the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro SS Hot Wheels Edition, which adds stylistic influence from the renowned toy maker to a muscle car with a V8 engine and a manual transmission. Mutual Enterprises in Springfield, Massachusetts offers this limited-production Camaro for sale, noting that the vehicle’s single owner was a collector. What makes the Hot Wheels Edition special? First, there’s the striking Kinetic Blue exterior paint color, which definitely isn’t going to divert any attention away from this muscle car. Additionally, there are exclusive 21-inch alloy wheels and various bits of Hot Wheels badging.Inside the cabin, you’ll find a black leather interior with red stitching, and of course, there are Hot Wheels logos embroidered into the seats. Because Chevrolet based this example on the SS trim, it also features a heads up information display.Incredibly, this Camaro only has 824 miles on the odometer.The Hot Wheels Edition was available as either a 2LT V6 or a 2SS V8 model. Luckily for potential buyers, this example is the latter, with its 6.2-liter V8 engine pairing to a manual transmission to drive the rear wheels. Also, the vehicle features a dual mode exhaust, which was a factory option.Mutual Enterprises is asking $34,995 for this special edition Camaro, which seems like a pretty stellar deal, considering the car cost over $37,000 new and the Hot Wheels option package was $6,995 itself. Would you add some miles to this full-size fun toy, or would you continue to treat it as a collectible?  Read More...

    The Importance of Free Press in a Democracy

    Before we can understand the importance of a free press in a democracy, we need to grasp what it means to have a free press. The Cambridge Dictionary tells us that a free press allows all media outlets to express whatever opinions they desire. That means, it says, that they are enabled to “criticize the government and other organizations.” So why would that be relevant in a democracy?

    Unfair Questions or Democracy At Work ?

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” -- The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

    Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

    Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

    Capitalism and The Wealth Gap

    When it comes to the efficient delivery of goods and services, capitalism is the proven economic model that puts people to work and products on the shelves. Whether those jobs end up paying enough money to purchase the items on those shelves is another matter, however.

    Living Wages Are A Global Problem

    The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

    Ukraine: Not What It Seems

    After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

    Religious Freedom Bill - Protecting The Faithful or Legalized Discrimination?

    After a much heated national debate, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial bill that would have allowed people and businesses in the state to refuse services to LBGT people based on their religious belief.

    Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

    The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
