What will be made known as former congressman Robert “Beto” O’Rourke moves across the country campaigning for the highest office in the land? O’Rourke seems to show the same ideas as Bernie Sanders, Corey Booker, and Kamala Harris, among others Democratic presidential candidates. He is for universal health care which lends to the idea of how misinformed and out of touch with reality he appears.
Words like “radical” and “extremist” should only be reserved for actual individuals who champion far out ideas like the elimination of science, economics, education, and ideas from government. Like capitalists. The suspects involved in the Christchurch, New Zealand massacre should be labeled as cowards and puny practitioners in the initiation of physical force.
As another Mafia don falls by way of gun violence, it is clear that the days of criminalized drug trade remain numbered. Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali headed the Gambino crime family before being riddled with rounds outside of his Staten Island, New York home. This Sicilian mobster committed extortion, yes, but it was the sale of illicit drugs like heroin and Oxycontin that fueled and continues to sustain underworld organizations like La Cosa Nostra. Just like when alcohol was criminalized and the likes of Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and Alphonse “Al” Capone arose and perpetrated crimes against the State, so do mobsters of today perpetuate the mystique of the gangster realm.
With the scandal of the fake college admissions story regarding ringleader William Rick Singer, it is ironic that college dropouts become insta-billionaires in Silicon Valley. Did the parents of the children involved in this whole blow up expect them to develop a killer app and ditch a fancy school all in the process? By eliminating city, state, and federal controls over the minds of those yearning to learn, these kind of scams would never appear.
Snow and soot combined to make ashen clumps which collected outside of the hall. The flash grenades only caused a fire which the fire robots sought to extinguish. Pandemonium ensued upon the first detonation of the explosives. It appeared as if all of the occupants had exited the premises safely. But there was still no word on Pappy, Preston, and Symphony. Trevor and Saffron Lesane huddled behind a cart which was prepared to issue food items for the banquet after the presentation. Now, it served as an impromptu clinical apparatus to address the scrapes and bruises that some of the laureates and audience members sustained. Though not a physician, or a doctor of any kind, Lesane could identify and administer aid to those with injuries. Lesane dealt with his wife’s ankle, ensuring that it was not sprained or broken. “I think it’s sprained,” he said.
