Can we all agree the last thing the world needed was instability in the one country the borders the mideast and the West?

Can we all agree, even if Recep Tayyip Erdogan maintains his position, he will be fighting internal unrest, rather than ISIS?

Can we all agree, that for now, the West has no answers for individual attacks, but defeating ISIS in the mideast is the first step?

Can we all agree that while the world’s attention is focused on Turkey, Nice and Cleveland we seem to have forgotten about the tragedy that is now Syria?

Can we all agree that the candidate’s reaction to world events will go a long way in determining who gets elected in November?

Can we all agree, that after all the news this week, the big loser may be Donald Trump, whose VP announcement (via Twitter) almost got lost in all the other headlines? He’s trying again today.

Can we all agree the story of Wayne Simmons, former Fox news analyst who claimed to be an CIA agent, and will now spend 33 months in jail, reflects poorly on the network and everyone else who hired him?

Can we all agree, even though NFL Quarterback Tom Brady has decided to accept his 4-game suspension, we haven’t heard the last of ‘deflategate.’

Can we all agree Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg lost some admirers when she apologized for criticizing Donald Trump? At least she didn’t apologize for what she said?

Can we all agree the NRA’s loud silence after the shootings in Baton Rouge, St. Paul and Dallas, continues to be deafening?

Can we all agree that the Pokemon Go craze will end as soon as advertisers figure out how to ruin it?
