The problem is that Russian gov didn't in fact try to influence elections in US, it's obvious given that it has nothing to gain by doing so. Especially not against Clintons who have long history of cooperation with Russian oligarchs. DNC just got pwn'd by script kiddies, and they shared recovered info with wikileaks in order to achieve maximum lulz.
If wikipedia becomes a money sink it may compromise its mission. Overfunding is as bad as underfunding since it leads to inefficiency and waste. If they get more donations than their current organizational structure can make use of they should consider re-donating excess to other charities.
There isn't much difference between Bush and Obama in that respect. Nobody ever was ever pressuring US military and intelligence to go after Russia or Iraq. Instead they did it on their own to justify their existence and get more money from budget. POTUS has no choice but to go along.
The thing is tickets aren't really scarce. Only room at actual concert could be scarce. Another solution here would be sell unlimited number of tickets but only assign seats to them when people actually come, on first come first served basis. If there there's no seat for you, you get refund.
Well, of course, if it's a superbug then it's probably clinic-originated so reporting it would make them look bad. Only way to fight resistant bacteria is to restrict use of antibiotics to cases when they're really needed, and medics worldwide for various reasons failed to do it, and so they're instead pretending that nothing is happening.
Even if you forbid people to speak up they still can act on their beliefs. The only thing that forced political correctness accomplishes is burying problems under the rug. With it you don't know what people really think. So you can't address their concerns. Hate doesn't appear from nothing. It has its own social or economic roots, and with enforced doublespeak rules in action the government and other concerned parties can't get to the root of issues. It allows them to pretend that nothing is happening. But issues remain and people act in any way they can. Thus you get those protest votes for brexit and "joke" candidate Trump.
They already did it in the past, they removed greeks and armenians. They didn't do it to kurds only because they were fellow muslims and they needed their support for greek/armenian massacre. All people who are called turks in Turkey are of armenian/greek ancestry, and the only reason they didn't change state culture to greek or armenian and went with genocide instead is to allow old ottoman elites to remain in power.
Given that US military struggled even with Vietnam, winning a war with Russia as defender is an impossibility for them, even if nuclear weapons are excluded. They could only muster enough forces for such a war if Russia invaded New York or something.
The war isn't an actual possibility, MAD principle is still in effect. Nobody will risk a nuclear exchange for such silly reasons as "enforcing no fly zone over Syria". US simply has nothing to lose there, and nothing to fight for.
