I just read that Iran wants to supply its own soil samples as part of nuke deal. In defense of this crappy deal, Secretary of State John Kerry has been spouting that the deal with Iran is not about &ldquo;trust&rdquo; but about &ldquo;verification.&rdquo; Well it seems to me that soil samples from nuclear sites is part of the verification process and if Iran supplies its own samples, isn&rsquo;t that like the fox guarding the henhouse? &mdash; Call Me Crazy in KC<br />\n Dear Crazy: &nbsp;<br />\n Iran supplying its own soil samples instead of allowing an independent party to conduct the sampling is part of the secret side deals that have recently come to light from the International Atomic Energy Agency. These &ldquo;side deals&rdquo; were apparently not in the original deal signed by Kerry but nonetheless would be binding. &nbsp;<br />\n But have no fear; our genius secretary of state had a well thought out and logical response as to why it will be okay if Iran takes its own soil samples from Parchin, the military nuclear site. Actually, Kerry didn&rsquo;t have a good response except to say that the IAEA can monitor how Iran takes its own samples. Iran is not making this demand at its &ldquo;civilian&rdquo; nuclear sites, just the military sites. Gosh if Iran is forbidden from building nuclear weapons according to this deal, why in the world would the mullahs forbid the IAEA from taking samples at this site? Just a simple man asking simple questions.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n I&rsquo;m tired of the liberal bias of our mainstream media in its reporting.&nbsp; There are some truly important issues that seem to require more reporting and deeper investigating by news outlets. But instead of reporting on Planned Parenthood, the IRS, the Iran deal, slow GDP growth, and more Hillary lies about her emails, we get stories on Bruce Jenner, Tom Brady, Cecil the lion, and anything outrageous from Donald Trump. How can so many be so blind to what is going on with our media? &mdash; Speak No Evil<br />\n Dear Speak: &nbsp;<br />\n I couldn&rsquo;t have said it better myself, but as an opinion columnist it&rsquo;s my job to try, or if I&rsquo;m being honest with my readers, it&rsquo;s in my ego to try and say it better. To answer your question, the great and powerful Rush Limbaugh put it best when he said &ldquo;the media has stopped reporting the news and now wants to manage the news.&rdquo; That seems to be what journalism schools are cranking out these days, a bunch of leftist ideologues interested in changing the world into a liberal utopia.<br />\n The topics you&rsquo;ve mentioned should all be headlines and with a little bit of investigative reporting could possibly be Pulitzer material. But notice that all of the stories you&rsquo;ve listed are bad news for our current president as well as the media&rsquo;s choice as the next president &mdash; Hillary. Need I go further?</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:&nbsp; A school district in Mississippi was fined $7,500 for opening an assembly with a prayer. The government is now definitely out of control. &mdash; PO&rsquo;d in Fort Worth<br />\n Dear PO&rsquo;d: &nbsp;<br />\n Let me get this straight.&nbsp; The government fines a small school district for supposedly breaking the law with a prayer but allows sanctuary cities like San Francisco, New York City and Los Angeles to go scott free? Once again just asking a simple question.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n Here we go again; you conservatives just won&rsquo;t lay off the Clinton&rsquo;s and their personal life. Another book has come out accusing Hillary of being horrible to the Secret Service and Bill of continuing to fool around on our next president.&nbsp; This is such old news so why don&rsquo;t y&rsquo;all just focus on the issues? &mdash; Tired of the Gross Old Party<br />\n Dear Tired:<br />\n I&rsquo;m sorry but I must have missed where any of the Republican presidential candidates brought up Hillary&rsquo;s ill-temperament or Bill&rsquo;s infidelity with a &ldquo;buxom blonde&rdquo; as a campaign issue. All I will say about the Clinton&rsquo;s arrangement &mdash; uh I mean marriage &mdash; is that they appear to share equally in everything. Bill was president, Hillary wants to be president. Bill is a lawyer, Hillary is a lawyer. Hillary has a personal serve; Bill apparently has one too.</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
