Although the article's author would never would never be comfortable admitting it, by default he is advocating for term limitations in our own government.

Everything said about politics in Turkey applies equally to American politics. Believing somehow that American politicians act any different than humans anywhere else on the planet is foolhardy and plays into the hand of every manipulative politician.

If you doubt my premise, read the first several paragraphs of the article and open your eyes just enough to at least squint at the reality of politics. You owe your mind that much.

Turkey’s president has arrested thousands of people to hang onto power. Can it work?

If you want to bring a superhero to the screen you need people with actual super skills to help make it happen. After watching this Supergirl stuntwoman kick some major ass at the American Ninja Warrior course we can safely say that the DC Comics series found the right woman for the job. We first came across this incredible run at Comicbook Resources, and it shows stuntwoman Jessie Graff competing in the season eight premiere of American Ninja Wa...

Say what you will about natural marijuana, it's deregulation would help curb the use of these dangerous designer replacements.  While current policies only encourage chemists to come up with new formulations which can remain legal until it's chemical composition is discovered and added to the list of synthetics already outlawed. 

A large number of states have already moved on various forms of deregulation, it's time for the federal government to take time out from fund raising and catering only to 'campaign contributors' and properly address the nation's drug situation with actual science research and an unbiased rewriting of federal code.

I used to think America was a Democracy where the People elected the politicians and our votes counted. But that doesn't seem to be the case in this year's election. This year the Democrats and Republicans have rigged their primaries. And that's neither Democratic, nor the American Way.

Thanks to weekly four-day weekends and a general inclination to do anything other than legislate, The Politico reports this year’s Senate will likely spend the least amount of time in the Senate in more than 60 years.

Instead of pretending they are all Judge Dredd, cops need to be retrained to learn how to detain suspects without constantly defaulting to the use of deadly force. 

Although, in this situation, the suspect declined to follow the officers orders, thus triggering 'suicide by cop', the police still had other non-lethal responses they could have used.  Using deadly force, without proof of a weapon, amounts to the officers assigning themselves the power of judge, jury and executioner.

The police are supposed to be a part of a 'justice system' where suspects are 'assumed innocent' until a jury of their peers finds them guilty 'beyond the shadow of a doubt'. Only then does a judge decide whether the crime merits a death sentence.  The decision to apply the death penalty should at least be decided by 'due process' and not by some cop getting itchy and acting more like a licensed vigilante
than the public servant they were hired to be. #ControlYourCops #OnlyTheJusticeYouCanAfford

Dollar stores are a minefield of cheap junk and questionable food, but there are also some great deals on stuff you use every day. If you know what to look for and what to avoid, you can make the dollar store the first stop in your grocery shopping quest and get the most bang for your pennies.
