The extremes of rule by people (democracy) vs rule by the educated (or elite, if you prefer). Ongoing since Periclean Athens and arguments continue. I see it especially in discussion on Brexit vote.

It will be hard to spin this here in US
But many will try. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2016/06/28/at-least-28-dead-60-injured-in-terror-attack-at-istanbul-airport.html

Suprising win for Brexit. Check that – I did not pay attention before the vote. I am enjoying the liberal moaning, though. One theme: all fueled by xenophobia and racism. I think this hurts the liberals in the long run. Labeling your opponents like that will get you nowhere.
My alma mater
has a Bias Response Team. I am glad that I stopped giving $$$ years ago.
Given that cultural diversity is a national value, is the Orlando massacre a celebration (for letting Omar Mateen act out his cultural norms) or is it a hate crime (for killing LBQT people)? Or maybe tolerating hate crimes is a strength for diversity? /s/ Confuse.
Anti-racism not working
FBI bent over backwards to clear Omar Mateen. Fifty members of LBQT community dead, more injured. So anti-racism worked very poorly.
But it is American football that is violent

Indictment decision September 15
Not to say that there will necessarily be an indictment. But by Sept 15 the President will be able to decide if Sec. Clinton will lose the election. If ‘yes’, then indict her and get a replacement nominee. Regrettably, the truth/falsity of her email server violations will play little part.
Left’s war on women
A woman with a Trump’s hat was attacked during the San Jose riots.
