Memory Lane Monday: Candidates and Coups

A humanitarian crisis in Turkey? Uh, yeah.Change can happen in an instant.Another week after the “coup” in Turkey, and President Erdogan, while demanding that US President Barack Obama prove their butt-buddy status by extraditing Fethullah Gulen to Istanbul, has closed 1,000 private schools, 35 hospitals, 1,200 charities and 19 trade unions.

As the mainstream media moves from Cleveland to Philadelphia, if anything the last two weeks in Turkey have proven is how quickly the top can come down and why it is so important to be leery of those seeking government power.Oh wait, that first bit was from Trump’s RNC speech last Friday, and that last one was from Hillary Clinton back in 2005. Oops.

Good thing none of the American 2016 candidates have never shown any tyrannical tendencies and have never said anything along the lines of, "I am not going to let companies move to other countries, firing their employees along the way, without consequences," or, “I think it's time to send a clear message to what has become the most profitable sector in (the) entire economy that they are being watched.”

Right?

  • Yes, you are right but you know what government is the king of his country and in his region. They can do whatever they want to, even they can also change the decisions taken by themselves already and also announce the new decisions as well. So everything is possible in this situation.
