    Coup in Turkey

    in Politics Discussion on 15 July 2016

    Turkish said: Coups in Turkey are generally good and dispose of corrupt politicians. The military always gave control back to civilian govt after a while, unlike say South America or Arab World where the generals become dictators for life. Meh, unlikely. Not quite the situation around for wishful thinking. Plus Kurdish factor. For the region to go down completely out of control...

    11 officers shot, 1 bystander shot during protests over recent shootings

    in Politics Discussion on 14 July 2016

    Looking at the issue from statistical standpoint, I don't see any base for calling it a racial thing really. At least there's no more racial bias in police actions that in life itself. Though looking at impressive death toll of those who were shot by the police, there're certainly some issues within the law enforcement. But that's not the point. The point is can you make it a racial thing with...
