Turkish President Recep Erdogan and his Justice and Development Party arrived on the scene a dozen years ago and instituted several important changes in society. The Army was finally prevented from interfering in the political process and the economy began to take off. But, somehow, along the way, Erdogan increasingly has become a man obsessed with the belief there are powerful forces throughout the world who spend their days and nights seeking to destroy both him and his party. The other day he informed the world about his “enemies.” According to him the American “Armenian lobby, homosexuals, and those who believe in Alevism, all those represent the representatives of sedition. (The Alevi are those who believe in a version of the Muslim religion which preaches tolerance for all).
He is very angry at the Turkish Democratic People’s Party which he claims receives support from “foreign media outlets seeking to make Turkey their colony.” Oh, among those “foreign media sources are The New York Times, the BBC and CNN.
Give it a break, Recep, I do not believe the New York Times has sessions devoted to infiltrating Turkey!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT
I wonder if there is a stage large enough to hold all those seeking the Republican nomination?
Rick and Rick are now in the race, just guess their last names.
I wonder if Republicans could just give a test on American history to see if anyone of these clowns could pass it.
So, whatever happened to Sarah? How come she is not running? Think of book sales!
I have a hunch that Republicans would be better to wander down to Skid Row and select one of the drunks.
I so long for John McCain, at least he could complete a sentence without insulting someone.
What would happen to this country i f a clown was president?
