"There has been a 40 percent decrease in oil sales and a 45 percent decrease in repatriating oil money," Qasemi told the Iranian parliament's budget commission, according to the ISNA news agency citing MPs. The minister said the final figures for the current Iranian calendar year, which ends in March 2013, would see "a significant decrease" in crude export revenues, but he did not provide any numbers. The admission by Qasemi was significant, given that he was one of the officials who up to now had been most adamant in claiming that Iran's crucial oil exports were entirely unaffected by draconian US and EU sanctions. Those assertions have crumbled in recent months, with other Iranian officials acknowledging that the sanctions were hurting the economy. Economy Minister Shamseddine Hosseini for instance last month admitted that oil revenues had plunged 50 percent because of the Western embargo, which took effect in July 2012. According to the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and the International Energy Agency (IEA), Iranian crude exports have fallen from around 2.4 million barrels per day (mbpd) in late 2011 to around 1.0 mbpd by the end of 2012. The overall amount Iran is pumping out of its oil fields is estimated to have fallen by some 25 percent to 3.0 mbpd -- its lowest level since the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s. Iran, once the second-biggest crude exporter in OPEC after Saudi Arabia, has now slipped to fourth place, as sales drop behind those of Iraq and Kuwait, according to the cartel's figures. The sharp decline is undermining Iran's finances. In 2011, the Islamic republic relied on the $100 billion brought in by oil exports to cover 60 percent of the budget. This year will see much less money to spend, several Iranian lawmakers and government officials have hinted. "It is expected that oil exports will be 1.5 mbpd" in the next Iranian calendar year starting in March, Qasemi said, according to remarks relayed to ISNA by budget commission spokesman Gholam Reza Kateb. The export plunge, and US sanctions restricting Iran's ability to use international banking transactions to repatriate oil revenues, is costing the country around $5 billion per month, according to experts. Despite the climbing evidence of hardship, Iran is sticking to what its supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has called a "resistance economy", aiming for greater self-reliance and belt-tightening. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said late December that "we should be able to administer the country without reliance on oil revenues." His policies, though, have been blasted by hardline lawmakers for mismanaging the economy and worsening the situation. The international sanctions targeting Iran aim to choke the country's revenues used for its disputed nuclear programme, and to force it to the negotiating table. Iran insists the programme is for purely peaceful purposes, and denies Western and Israeli allegations that it wants to manufacture nuclear weapons. It is defiantly forging on with uranium enrichment and says it will survive the Western pressure.

Senator Rand Paul was on The Daily Show where he and Jon Stewart talked about the argument for religious freedom and how people are trying to get around marriage equality by arguing that corporations are people and have religious liberties. Senator Paul's point is that he believes religious freedoms are being attacked by the government and he illustrated his point by telling a story of a Christian company in Kentucky. “They chose not to make shirts that support gay marriage. The thing is that does sound a little bit like a freedom issue. And you could go down the street and get somebody else to make it.” Stewart rebuttled that point by saying, “The only thing I would say is, don't they sell cakes to sinners all the time. Adulterers. When you com in and say ‘I'd like a cake,’ do they say 'Do you use the name of the lord in vain?'” This led the conversation back to whether or not these religious freedom arguments can be made by corporations claiming to be people, with Paul saying, “That's exactly the question of the Patriot Act… Whether or not a warrant that has a corporations name on it, Verizon, can collect all the records of all the people, whether a corporation is a person. So we're right back to the Patriot Act and I think we agree now.” After toasting their coffee mugs to this revelation, Stewart commented, “This is going to keep me awake tonight. I'm going to be sitting around going 'Wait a minute!'”
