  • NABS NABS Nomenclature for the analysis and comparison of scientific programmes and budgets
  • Anti-protest laws History of instances when anti-protest laws have been introduced around the world. Recent examples include Ukraine, Victoria in Australia. This page could help determine if there are historical precedents to suggest that this kind of legislation is dangerous to democracy i.e. states who have implemented these laws have moved towards fascism / dictatorship etc.
  • Sitting government, please (I want to know what it means for a government to be "sitting", I wasn't able to find a definition anywhere). Possibly under Incumbent government?

  • Evidence Recovery Team, division of the FBI, may warrant an article (its not even mentioned at the article on the fbi)
  • deputization Wikipedia doesn't have any articles on this process. What are the legal ramifications of someone being deputized as a (temporary?) law enforcement official? Who has the authority to deputize someone? Does someone so deputized have the full authority of a more traditionally appointed law enforcement official? How does modern deputization compare to the more common (?) practice in the American Old West? I think these are all intriguing questions that Wikipedia doesn't seem to touch on at all.
  • do-ocracy reference
  • Corruption of the Mexican police
  • ineptocracy Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing; and, where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. Also could be applied to any organization or company. The only difference is these will usually go out of business eventually.

  • Campaign for a Fair Settlement - an American coalition attempting to increase the accountability of banks following the economic and foreclosure crises in 2008

Political parties[edit]




  • Box 13 Scandal. Concerns Jim Wells County, Texas, and the 1948 election of Lyndon Baines Johnson to the U.S. Senate. Named after the Precinct 13 ballot box termed "infamous" in the current Jim Wells County article. Footnote from Robert Caro's 1991 book, "The Years of Lyndon Johnson: Means of Ascent". Johnson evidently won by less than 100 votes (over former Texas governor Coke Stevenson), although the wp footnote says 202 votes were later "demonstrated" to have been stuffed into Box 13 before polls closed.
  • Charles Munger Jr.
  • Moldovan referendum, 2012 April 1
