Obama’s American Petroleum Police State spurring deadly growth in GDP and lulling those who don’t participate in it into a false of prosperity.

The predator state says, if you can't take anymore out of their pockets, then take it out of their Commons.

And the Commons, that cost component of GDP that isn’t measured, has already suffered heavy losses and is now depleted way past the point that is reasonably prudent.

Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
