Can we all agree, the European plan to deport 40,000 refugees in Greece back to Turkey for re-processing is simply cruel?

Can we all agree SeaWorld didn’t have much choice about ending their killer whale program, given the public outcry and government opposition?

Can we all agree that we all owe Donald Trump a big ‘thank you’ for refusing to show up at next week’s GOP debate – possibly ending the the useless exercises for this primary season?

Can we all agree that the Senate finally did something right in allowing states to pass regulations on GMO labeling?

Can we all agree Hulk Hogan saved us all from endless postings of sex tapes that we never wanted to see anyway?

Can we all agree that watching Senate Republicans tie themselves into verbal knots explaining why they won’t vote on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee until after they see who wins the November election is truly entertaining? Sen.Orrin Hatch deserves an Oscar for his outstanding performance.

Can we all agree that The President’s decision not to allow oil drilling off the southeast coast may have been a flip-flop of the best kind?

Can we all agree that when the President leaves Cuba after his weekend visit, he needs to have something concrete in hand regarding human rights, or his trip will be wasted?

Can we all agree that Russia’s announcement of a troop withdrawal from Syria is really meaningless since they maintain  major sea and air bases in the country?

Can we all agree that the last thing the newspaper world needed was a journalistic monopoly running from greater Los Angeles to the Mexican border?

Can we all agree that Brazil’s leaders have figured out a way to take a bad corruption scandal and make it worse?
