Ahmeddinjad is an economic genius

The Iranian stock market has been in a downward spiral ever since A.J. took over the reins of the Iranian presidency because, well, he is crazy, and the fact that he called it gambeling , which Islam forbids. The effect of his words and actions created an unprecetended effect on the market. Nervous investors have been transferring their capital to other countries, and Dubai has benefited palpably from the flight of capital from Iran. The Tehran Stock Exchange has lost 20 percent of its value in the past four months.“At the moment there are no buyers in this market, only sellers”, the newspaper Ruznet wrote. “Economists believe the situation is becoming more difficult to handle day by day”. So what's our boy's soloution to all of this? A quite ingenius one actually: Hang people! Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the latest cabinet meeting in the Iranian capital that “if we were permitted to hang two or three persons, the problems with the stock exchange would be solved for ever”, according to a Tehran-based newspaper. Ahmadinejad was addressing a cabinet meeting held to discuss the rapidly deteriorating situation at the Tehran Stock Exchange, the daily Ruznet reported on Sunday. Ministers and experts disagreed with all the different views and proposals raised at the meeting, which came to an end without any concrete results. Tempers flew high and participants shouted at each other during the discussion, according to the daily. Frustrated with the inability of his economic advisers and experts to come up with any solution, Ahmadinejad told them that the only way out of the current stock exchange and financial market problems was to “frighten” speculators by hanging two or three of them. Fantastic.

Yeah, killing a few people would definitely get things rolling wouldn't it. At the rate this person (won't call him a man) is going, Iran will be a heavily armed slum. or is it one already?

Well, SM, it's like this... he said just today that he wants the Bush administration tried by the UN as war criminals. What can it be when the President of a country that claims to want peace says something like that about the President of the country he wants peace with? Except a joke?

Nothing like killing people to give the ones that are left confidence to take risks, NOT!!!

Other things he plans on fixing by killing people:

Education (bloody teachers just don't try hard enough)

Sanitation (a few good hangings will stop people littering)

Public Transport (start a good old slaughter and watch take up on public transport to soar; only problem is it will be focussed on lines heading to borders and only one way movement is to be expected. Short term solution only)

Even the Umans are nervious about A.J. (you really have to be crazy to make them think "hey, this islamists guys is nuts")

I wonder where the Republican Guard (bastards) will side with if the Umans decide to bolt on this guy. This could become a very serious civil strife (if not war)

AJ gives the jihadists wet dreams, but makes the 80% "sick of this crap" secular Iranian community (which held a candilite vigil after 911) searching for Canadian passports. (lucky enough my girlfriend found one)

There was a time when communities would seek counsel from the elders. More experience usually translated into lessons learned. Having picked up a pearl of wisdom here and there over the years, I am now able to share a thought or two. The main lesson is to never stop learning. Seeking other points of view and new ideas like visiting your blog are steps in the right direction. Finding what is ultimately important leads one to appreciate actuality, efficiency and mindfulness. Helping others to see some of the forest through the trees is its own reward. synergy
