As Johnny has said before, this site is for the most part about THIS surrounding area. That's why most of our readers come here, for news and infotainment and a few laughs about our fair city. However, when something is going halfway across the world far bigger and more important than this blog, we cannot ignore it. We fully support, commend, sympathize, and offer our thanks for those inside Iran who will not be silenced, who will not be intimidated and will not kowtow to the big bad bully known as a corrupt government. They were lied to, they were dismissed as bit players in an election whose outcome was obviously decided beforehand. THEY have the bravery to stand up to this sham (and when was the last time Americans as a group were willing to go to the mat for something they believe in by facing down police and government overlords?) and actually put their lives in jeopardy for the RIGHT thing and the JUST thing.
We'd say this about any people in this world with a just cause who live under a repressive, arrogant, corrupt government. If you think you need to spill blood to take your own destiny back, if you need to spill blood to take your voice back, if you need to spill blood to end your tyranny, you'll have Johnny's support.
We hope against hope the Iranian people are successful in this grand, important endeavor, by any means necessary.
People should not be afraid of their governments, governments should be afraid of their people"
