+Muzaffer Çağda - If I wasn't an American, I would hate Americans based on American media.  It's arrogant, purposely inciting conflict and otherwise telling people what to think, often from standpoints of total ignorance.

Just remember, less than 25% of Americans watch or listen to much American media, which is built on ratings for massive advertising dollars, so they are always reporting conflict and strife.  To keep those that watch hours upon hours glued.

Anyone who has been to the US, the real US (not just DC, or a tourist mainstay), will often speak very differently about Americans.  The supermajority of us are nothing like the polarizing non-sense in the media.

At the same time, being different and having different views, is inherently American.  Most of us just don't do all the non-sense that is on the TV, those are the worst of us. Most Americans aren't so polarizing, and work together. 

Although I have to be honest, and admit the US has been, and always will be, a very violent nation crime-wise, statistically. That hasn't changed in the 400 years we've been around, always inflated over everyone else. But even those are an extremely small number of the overall population, just like in any nation. Even if higher overall and usually per-capita (not always in some categories, but nearly all), it's still a very small portion of overall population.

Hear me now? 'Strong signal' from sun-like star sparks alien speculation

Wild speculation by news media. But still, interesting.

#SETI
Astronomers engaged in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) across the world are training their instruments on a star around 94 light years from Earth after a very strong signal was detected by a Russian telescope.

Stephen Bannon, Trump’s campaign chief is registered to vote in Florida at unoccupied home

Donald Trump’s new presidential campaign chief is registered to vote in a key swing state at an empty house where he does not live, in an apparent breach of election laws.

How does breach of election law surprise anyone anymore?

Hillary herself rented a place in NY she didn't live at in order to run for senator for NY.
