2 Iranian Poets Escape From Iran

Two poets in Iran facing long terms in jail and 99 lashes each
Have managed to escape from Iran and place themselves beyond the theocrats’ feudal reach
Freedom of expression in Iran is ruthlessly suppressed
I doubt if there is any semblance of a free press
It may take time but history shows us the pen is mightier than the sword
With the social media sharper still waiting for the young to a movement for freedom to come on board
150 billion dollars for five Americans just released
A sure bet Iranian sponsoring of terrorist will not cease
Another example of why the nuclear deal really stinks
As the price of oil continues to sink
Iran will add to the glut of oil 700,000 barrels of oil a day
With fracking becoming too costly means dreams of energy independence fading away
Now would be the time when oil prices are at decade historic lows
Time to start adding to the petroleum reserve like the Chinese propose
No the politicians in D.C. want not to add but rather to sell more pressure on prices to drop
Further evidence of disconnect from reality of market forces will not stop
