While WFME is completely unpolitical, we couldn’t turn down five minutes with Iran’s man of the moment.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, both complicated on his own and in the spelling of his name, has gained great press since the United States went to war in the Middle East, and is known for his hard-lined and opinionated thoughts on a variety of subjects including Israel, the United States, nuclear weapons and much much more.
Well today, thanks to WFME being granted this imaginary interview, we peel back the layers and find out even more about the man.
WFME: “Good day, Mr. Ahmadinejad.”
Ahmadinejad: “Yes, thank you.”
Time to get those voting shoes on.
For if you live in the United States, today represents the biggest, most important, most crucial event all year next to straw-delivery day (the day you get delivered your massive palate of restaurant-grade drinking straws). Yet despite the importance and significance of voting, some Americans may forget to vote, disregard the process or end up eating potato skins at T.G.I.Friday’s instead. And in my opinion, it’s because voting doesn’t seem that exciting or engaging.
That’s why I’d like to offer up five new ingenious ways to make voting the most exciting experience ever.
filÂ·iÂ·busÂ·ter n. The use of obstructionist tactics, especially prolonged speechmaking, for the purpose of delaying legislative action. An instance of the use of this delaying tactic.
Usage: The Congressman from New York, hoping to delay the passing of an abhorrent piece of legistature, filibustered for over 12 hours, discussing the issue at hand, along with other subjects unrelated to the current proposed law.
It seems, Congress is using my words as their filibuster.
In just the last five days, WFME has received over 150 unique visits from Congress (house.gov) and there is only one obvious reason why. Currently, there must be some kind of legislature that our representatives do not want to see get passed. But there’s a problem, because they just don’t have the votes necessary to strike it down. What can they do? What is their way out?
