سرگرمی :: آخوندهای حکومتی نجس‌اند يا سگ‌ها؟
روحانيون حکومتی اما بايد به فکر نجاست خودشان باشند. اين قشر دقیقاً در کتگوری «نجس»ها می‌گنجد٬ چراکه جز آسيب زدن به روان و جسم انسان‌ها٬ کار ديگری نمی‌کند. آسيبی که روحانيون حکومتی طی سی‌وشش سال حکومت کابوس گونه‌ی خود٬ به انسان ايرانی وارد کرده‌اند٬ قابل‌احصا نيست. اگر روزی تمام سگ‌های دنيا را جمع می‌کردند٬ و به داخل کشور ما می‌آوردند٬ هيچ آسيبی به مردم وارد نمی‌شد٬ اما يک گروه چند صدنفره از روحانيون حکومتی٬ چند نسل از ايرانيان را بيمار کردند٬ و آن‌ها را ازنظر اخلاق و فرهنگ به حضيض کشاندند٬ و از اين آشکارتر٬ باعث کشته شدن و معلول شدن چند صد هزار انسان شدند! از زندان‌ها و شکنجه‌ها چيزی نمی‌گویم٬ چون تابه‌حال شنيده نشده است که سگی اقدام به چنين کاری کرده باشد! با اين معيار است که می‌گویم٬ روحانيون حکومتی٬ دقیقاً شایسته‌ی صفت «نجس» هستند٬ و گمان نمی‌کنم کسی٬ حتی خود روحانيون با اين استدلال منطقی مخالف باشد.

:: تولد جمهوری علمی غرب
شنیدن این حقیقت که بشر می خواهد و می‌تواتد زندگی امن و راحتی داشته باشد شاید برای ما تازگی چندانی نداشته باشد ولی همین درخواست بدیهی حدود 400 سال پیش، فقط در تخیل تعداد کمی از انسان‌های روی زمین می‌توانست نقش ببندد. زندگی بیشتر از 90 درصد مردم با کار طاقت فرسای طولانی در مزارع توام بود و شب های زندگی به سکونت در خانه های همیشه سرد، تاریک و مملو از کنه، موش و بیماری‌های واگیردار خلاصه می گشت. اما با ایجاد یک جمهوری سراسری علمی در اروپا، دانشمندان غرب امکان یافتند از تجربیات علمی همدیگر برخوردار گردند، در باره فرضیه های همدیگر نظر دهند، ایراد بگیرند، ترجمه کنند، تقلید کنند و در نهایت آنها را توسعه دهند.

:: اقلیت‌های دینی و عقیدتی، زیر تیغ جمهوری اسلامی
در پی وعده‌های حسن روحانی در انتخابات ریاست جمهوری دور یازدهم مبنی بر بهبود وضعیت اقلیت‌های ساکن در استان‌های مختلف ایران، این گروه‌ها بعضا با اشتیاق به پای صندوق‌های رأی رفتند و به روحانی رأی دادند به طوری که بیشترین درصد آرای روحانی به استان‌های سیستان و بلوچستان با ۷۳ درصد و کردستان با ۷۰ درصد اختصاص داشت.آن روز‌ها اقلیت‌های قومی با رأی دادن به حسن روحانی امیدوار بودند تا دست‌کم اندکی از مشکلات اقتصادی و منطقه‌ای‌شان کاهش یابد. روحانی در کارزار انتخاباتی، بیانیه شماره سه خود را که در ۱۰ بند جداگانه تنظیم شده بود، به مسأله اقلیت‌ها در ایران اختصاص داد. او با اشاره به اینکه پیش‌نویس اولیه منشور حقوق شهروندی تدوین شده و آن را به صورت سند و لایحه تقدیم مجلس خواهد کرد، گفته بود که در این منشور، حقوق برابر برای تمامی شهروندان و هر تبعه‌ ایرانی در نظر گرفته شده و بین مرد و زن و اقوام و اقلیت‌های مختلف هیچ تفاوتی وجود ندارد. او همچنین وعده داده بود تا در پست‌های مدیریتی از نیروهای شایسته محلی استفاده کند و دست‌کم یکی از معاونان رییس‌جمهوری را از بین اقلیت‌ها انتخاب کند. افزون بر این، وعده تدریس زبان مادری و اجرای آداب و فرایض دینی اقلیت‌های مذهبی نیز به آن‌ها داده شده بود. روحانی حتی در میان مردم تبریز وعده داده بود که «فرهنگستان زبان و ادب آذری» تأسیس کند، اما تاکنون خبری درباره کم و کیف و چگونگی تأسیس احتمالی این فرهنگستان منتشز نشده است.

:: نافرمانی مدنی اثر دیوید ثورو را از توانا رایگان دانلود کنید
این نوشته، ترجمه کامل مقاله «نافرمانی مدنی» (Civil Disobedience) اثر مشهور هنری دیوید ثورو است، اثری که به باور مهاتما گاندی و مارتین لو‌تر کینگ تاثیر مستقیم بر اندیشه‌های آنان درباره مبارزه بی‌خشونت داشته است. ثورو (۱۸۶۲- ۱۸۱۷) نویسنده و فیلسوف آمریکایی، طرفدار لغو برده داری و عضو برجسته مکتب تعالی گرایی است که معتقد است اتکا به خویشتن مانعی است در مقابل تاثیرات مخرب سیاست و دین سازمان یافته. در «نافرمانی مدنی» ثورو به طور صریح نهاد برده داری و عملکرد ایالات متحده در جنگ مکزیک و آمریکا را به نقد می‌کشد با این استدلال که این اعمال، بی‌عدالتی بنیادین دولت‌ها و حکومت اکثریت را منعکس می‌کند. به عقیده ثورو افراد در مقابل قوانین ناعادلانه باید سرباز زده و آن چه را که درست می‌پندارند دنبال کنند تا خود را از فساد نهادینه شده حکومت‌‌ رها کرده و مانع دوام آن در کشور شوند.

:: مجید توکلی از زندان آزاد شد
به گزارش«سحام»، مجید توکلی که از شانزده آذر هشتاد و هشت تاکنون در زندان بسر می برد در طول ۲ سال گذشته از حق مرخصی محروم است. این دانشجوی سبز دربند که به دلیل بازداشت‌های متعدد و تحمل سلول انفرادی در ماه‌های متعدد به «شرف جنبش دانشجویی» ملقب شده است، در بهمن ۸۹ به شعبه ٢٨ دادگاه انقلاب اسلامی به ریاست قاضی مقیسه فراخوانده شد تا مورد محاکمه قرار بگیرد، این درحالی است که به وکیل و خانواده توکلی اطلاعی داده نشده بود. قاضی مقیسه رئیس شعبه ۲۸ دادگاه انقلاب از وی خواسته بود که با تکذیب بیانیه‌های منتشر شده و نوشته‌هایی که به بیرون از زندان فرستاده است، از سایت‌ها و عاملان انتشار این مطالب نیز اعلام شکایت کند که پس از مخالفت مجید توکلی، نهایتا در دادگاهی شش ماه زندان به دوران محکومیت وی اضافه شد. ممانعت از مرخصی آقای توکلی در حالی صورت می گرفت که این فعال دانشجویی پس از چهار سال حبس با وثیقه ۶۰۰ میلیون تومانی در مهرماه ۱۳۹۲ به مرخصی چهار روزه آمده بود. آزادی آقای توکلی در حالی صورت گرفته است که ۲۰ روز دیگر تا پایان حکم وی باقی مانده بود و این مرخصی به پایان دوره ۸/۵ زندان آقای توکلی مرتبط شده است. مجید توکلی، دانشجوی رشته مهندسی کشتی سازی دانشگاه صنعتی امیر کبیر(پلی تکنیک تهران) است که در ١۶ آذر سال ١٣٨٨برای سومین بار بازداشت شد. توکلی به ۸ سال زندان محکوم شده بود که حکم وی به قرار زیر بوده است: ۵ سال به دلیل اجتماع و تبانی، ۲ سال توهین به رهبری، ۱ سال تبلیغ علیه نظام، ۶ ماه توهین به رئیس جمهور، ۵ سال محرومیت از فعالیت سیاسی و ۵ سال ممنوع الخروج از کشور. بعداز ظهر روز ۲۷ بهمن ۱۳۹۱ نیز طی مراسمی با شکوه در شهر تروندهایم نروژ، جایزه صلح دانشجویی به مجید توکلی اهدا شده بود. مجید توکلی لحظاتی پیش از فرودگاه تهران به سمت شیراز و منزل خویش عزیمت کرد.

طى روزهاى ٢٧ و ٢٨ فروردین، شانزده محکوم به اعدام جرائم مواد مخدر در شهرهاى مشهد و بیرجند به دار آویخته شدند. به گزارش خبرگزارى هرانا، ارگان خبرى مجموعه فعالان حقوق بشر در ایران، روز ٢٧ فروردین حکم اعدام ١٢ زندانى در زندان وکیل آباد مشهد اجرا شد، روز ٢٨ فروردین نیز ۴ محکوم به اعدام در زندان بیرجند پاى چوبه دار رفتند که حکم جملگی مرتبط به جرائم مواد مخدر بود. در حالى که در هفته هاى گذشته روند اجراى احکام اعدام سیر صعودى به خود گرفته است، نهادهاى رسمى نه تنها در این باره هیچ گونه شفاف سازى نکرده اند بلکه با قطع تماس و ارتباطات زندانیان مانع اطلاع رسانى آنها به خانواده و بیرون از زندان شده اند. به گزارش هرانا، اجراى احکام اعدام و مخصوصا اعدام محکومین مواد مخدر در حالى شدت گرفته است که طبق گزارشات پیشین قرار است لایحه حذف مجازات اعدام براى جرائم مواد مخدر در اردیبهشت ماه به مجلس ارائه شود.

Clinton floats tax-code changes as she campaigns in New Hampshire

Hillary Clinton holds Molly Morse as Caron Morse takes a photograph inside Kristin's Bistro & Bakery while she campaigns for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination in KeeneBy Amanda Becker KEENE, New Hampshire (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Monday she would consider changes to the U.S. tax code to reward companies that produce goods and services as opposed to trading, which she likened to "playing games." Campaigning in the early-voting state of New Hampshire, Clinton underscored the anti-Wall Street rhetoric she used in the launch of her 2016 White House bid last week. "I think what we have to do is look at the whole tax system and try to figure out what is an economic investment as opposed to one without economic purpose," Clinton said in response to a question during a visit to Whitney Brothers Inc., a family-owned business in Keene, New Hampshire. "Because there are a lot of those, where people are just basically playing games." "I want to do everything I can to support goods and real services and take a good look at what is now being done in the trading world," she said.
