Why is it that race is always brought up when discussing the present presidents qualifications. There is more to being a president than what color his skin is. Does anyone realize that Obama has never run a business or actually held a job that was not publically funded? If anyone has actually dealt with the real world requirements of working for a check that is dependent on the results of their work then you might know what I am referring to. If you do not meet deadlines and schedules your job will surely disappear unless you are related to a member of the company or the government. This is what is causing problems in our country and economy today. Either be a responsible employee and or parent and actually perform your duties or be a worthless member of our society. The worthless members of our society have outnumbered those of us who actually work for a living and are responsible for what we do.
The authorities and lawmakers may be turning a blind eye to the biggest graft scandal in Turkish history, but anti-corruption watchdogs warn that the situation is deteriorating. According to Transparency International’s annual Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI), corruption in Turkey is rapidly getting worse. TI ranks 175 countries on a scale of 0 to 100, with zero meaning “very corrupt” and 100 “very clean.” In last year’s survey Turkey experienced the sharpest drop of any of the 175 countries survived, falling five points to a CPI score of 45. Anne Koch, the organization’s director for Europe and Central Asia, said that Turkey’s slide from 53rd to 74th in the overall rankings had everything to do with the events of Dec. 17. “Millions of dollars in shoeboxes, the firing or resignation of ministers, many detentions, led the news on corruption,” said Koch. As a result, she noted, some countries in Africa and Middle East were faring better in the rankings than Turkey.
