Gaetz Says He Allowed Adult ‘Son’ To Spring Break In Florida

Rep. Matt Gaetz talks about 'allowing' his 'son' to spring break in Florida

Spring break madness is currently trending in the news cycle as thousands of students make a pilgrimage to Florida beach towns where there are little-to-no COVID restrictions.

During an appearance on Fox News last night, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Sean Hannity he’d “allowed” his “son” Nestor to head to Panama Beach, Florida.

“My son is a college freshman,” said Gaetz. “He had no real graduation, no prom, and I struggled with whether or not to allow him to enjoy spring break at Panama City beach. I allowed him to have an abbreviated one.”

He added that he “did not have a good night’s rest the entire time he was there until I knew he was safe, okay, and back at school.”

Now, the remark drew attention primarily because Nestor Galban is not Gaetz’s son.

Galban is the younger brother of an ex-girlfriend of Gaetz. The 19-year-old has apparently been living with the congressman on-and-off since he was 12.

While Gaetz refers to Galban as his “son,” he’s never adopted him.

The relationship came to light last year when after a clash during a hearing in Congress, Gaetz announced Nestor to the world as his son.

Gaetz had never mentioned to the public he has a “son,” and had only referred to Galban in the public as a “local student,” “helper,” and “House page.” Never as a “family” member.

Look, if the 38-year-old Gaetz wants to have a younger boo, that’s fine as long as he’s of legal age. What isn’t cool, though, is voting against legislation like the Equality Act.

Gaetz also told Hannity’s viewers that people should feel free to “come to Florida and enjoy freedom.” He added that folks could go out to eat, get in some beach time and “get a little weird, not too weird.”

Asked to define “weird,” Gaetz explained, “Maybe a little body-paint here and there, maybe throw some beads, but don’t hurt anybody.”

Body-paint and beads. Good times…

At nearly 20-years-old, it seemed a bit odd to some that Galban would need permission from Gaetz to be “allowed” to spring break somewhere.

Many in the Twitterverse thought it a bit odd as well.

Advice: Boyfriend Won’t Wash Properly Because Touching Himself Is ‘Gay?’

A recent post on Reddit asked for advice about a boyfriend who refused to rub-a-dub-dub ‘down there’  because ‘no homo.’

The thread got so much attention the moderators actually removed the original message and locked down the comments.

A woman asked what she could do to encourage her 24-year-old boyfriend to have better personal hygiene. Apparently, when she addressed the issue (which came up after they became intimate), “He explained that he doesn’t touch himself there, ever, because it’s gay.”

“He thinks washing his penis would be gay,” she continued. “What the hell. In fact, he thinks any touching of anything between his legs is gay.”

It seems the most attention his nether regions get is water running down his body during a shower.

“This was completely ridiculous and I started asking him what about masturbating?” added the poster. “What about wiping after he poops?”

Apparently, the boyfriend explained he gave up on self-love long ago as it began to make him feel ‘weird.’

And he uses a bidet instead of wiping after taking a number two.

The poster shared that the boyfriend feels “any contact a guy has with the male ass or pubic areas is in a gay realm.”

Even when she tried to tell him that touching his own body wasn’t ‘gay’ (“gay involves other people!”), he was unmoved.

Many of the responders felt the man must have experienced some kind of sexual trauma or molestation at some point in his life.

“It sounds like he may have had a trauma at some point in his life,” wrote one Redditor. “And/or he has been seriously shamed into the closet. To the point of having a phobia.”

“Honestly, he’s probably gay or was possibly molested,” another chimed in. “It’s extremely abnormal behavior.”

The closet scenario was brought up by several: “This dude is clearly just in deep denial that he is gay. It’s one thing to be a little homophobic and be worried out by gay people kissing or whatever, I get it, people were raised to think that wrong. It’s another thing entirely to have convinced yourself that touching your dick is gay.”

“Your boyfriend legitimately needs therapy for his obvious suppressed sexuality issues. His behavior heavily implies some kind of physical, or at the very least emotional, abuse was endured growing up.”

Others expressed concern for the woman’s personal health. One responder penned, “Do your vag a favor and don’t sleep with him til he washes cause that is a bacterial infection waiting to happen.”

Another: “Don’t have sex with him till he stops being a dumbass. It’s not worth the yeast infections and uti’s.”

Some wondered about the logistics of how a guy relieves himself without touching: “How does he pee without touching his dick? I’m imagining a huge mess.”

Another logistic question came up about the reality of having sex – apparently, he doesn’t touch his penis then either. The original poster, when asked, added, “I didn’t want to get too graphic but yes the times we’ve had sex he has asked me to position him and also to put on the condom.”

Several comments suggested he might need a date with a doctor for a ‘hygiene intervention.’

Many felt the clue phone was ringing, and she might want to answer: “I feel like the fact that he doesn’t wash or touch his own genital area (as genuinely disturbing as that is) is unfortunately only the tip of the iceberg with this whole thing.”

What do you think, readers? Is this just an OCD thing? Childhood trauma?

When it comes to hygiene, have you ever had to bring up the issue with a partner?

Upcoming DocuSeries Explores Secret Life Of NFL’s Aaron Hernandez

Netflix drops its official trailer for the upcoming docuseries Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez.

The three-part documentary series takes a deep dive into what led to the fall and shocking death of former NFL superstar Aaron Hernandez.

Through interviews with longtime friends, teammates, and insiders, the series chronicles the tight end’s rise from early high school football years to becoming a 4th round draft choice for the New England Patriots and ultimately making it all the way to the Super Bowl.

But it all came to an end in 2013 when he was arrested and charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro player who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancée.

In 2015, he was found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. During his trial, he was also indicted for a 2012 double homicide but was eventually acquitted of the charges in 2017.

Shortly after his acquittal, he was found dead in his prison cell and his death was ruled a suicide.

An autopsy revealed he suffered from severe chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a neurodegenerative disease caused by repeated head injuries.

Days after his passing, Newsweek published an article suggesting the athlete’s motive for killing Lloyd was to hide his sexual orientation. Since then, there’s been much speculation about his sexuality.

Hernandez’s lawyer, Jose Baez, later penned a book, Unnecessary Roughness, claiming the footballer confessed he’d had homosexual relationships.

Additionally, Hernandez reportedly left a suicide note for his alleged prison lover, Kyle Kennedy, who he had requested to be his cellmate before he died.

Hernandez has already been the subject of a two-part Oxygen Network series, Aaron Hernandez Uncovered, in 2018, which explored his rumored bisexuality.

Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez premieres January 15 on Netflix.

Totally-Not-Gay Former Congressman & The ‘Abs Over Principles’ Instagrammer

'Totally-not-gay' former Republican Congressman Aaron Schock was recently caught on video tipping a go-go dancer at Boy Bar, a gay club in Mexico City this past weekend.
‘Totally-not-tipping’ Aaron Schock (screen capture)

Totally-not-gay, former GOP congressman Aaron Schock reappeared on social media again, this time on the Instagram account of someone named Jeremy Cormier.

Other outlets are designating Cormier as an Instagram “influencer,” but I’ve honestly never heard of him. This post will probably be the most exposure he ever receives, considering after perusing his IG account, his life goals seem to be perfecting his abs and hanging with shirtless boys.

A trainer friend of mine pointed out he might want to balance some other body parts during workouts like his under-developed pecs or even consider a ‘leg day’ once in a while, but I’m not an expert so,…

Posting a photo of himself with Schock on his account, Cormier captioned the post, “Beach bros.”

Now, Cormier could have just shared the pic with “a guy with great abs,” but instead went to the trouble of tagging Schock in the photo. So, Cormier had to know the attention (and not the good kind) he was about to attract.

And, maybe that’s the point. As one commenter wrote, “When abs are more important than principles.”

As I’ve reported many times, during his time in the House of Representatives, the Republican congressman from Illinois took public positions against LGBTQ issues like voting against the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and for the anti-same-sex marriage Defense of Marriage bill. All while rumors abounded that he was a closeted gay.

In the past several months, Schock has been seen hanging with shirtless gays at Coachella, as well as making out and sliding his hands down the pants of a guy at the music festival as well.

In the photo above, Schock was captured tipping a gay go-go dancer in Mexico City.

You can find more on Mr. Schock’s escapades here.

A post shared by Jeremy Cormier (@jeremycormier) on Aug 9, 2019 at 9:32am PDT

James Duke Mason, who previously shared the photo of Schock at Coachella, wrote on the post:

“Jeremy, you know I love you, and you’re entitled of course to associate with whomever you choose to associate with- but this is disappointing. I don’t know who @aaronschock is in his heart, but this is a man who spent a decade actively fighting our rights and has STILL not apologized for it publicly. Think about the LGBT youth who have literally taken their lives because of anti-gay politicians like Aaron. This post really breaks my heart.”

Many of the comments noted the vast dearth of people of color in Cormier’s IG account.

I scrolled through his entire IG feed going back to 2013. There’s seriously not one black or brown face in any photo. In six years of posts.

Oh, wait – I did see one Asian man in a photo from 2016, but that was about it in terms of diversity.

Other than his abs, the only thing on display appears to be a sea of white gay men.

I think that tells us everything we need to know.

Maybe Cormier has more in common with Mr. Schock than we know.

Just to prove irony is dead, Mr. Cormier’s next IG post was attending a same-sex wedding, which Schock opposed while in office.

This post pretty much sums up his entire Instagram feed.

More the comments section:

“Nothing to see here, just a disgraced anti-gay politician who refuses to acknowledge his hypocrisy and the harm he has done to our community…”

“The dude’s Instagram feed is all the response y’all need. Look at it. What do you notice? Jeremy is more comfortable posting photos with antigay politicians than with anyone who isn’t nonwhite. White supremacy is a spectrum and takes on several forms from mild to serious, but the reality is Jeremy probably just shares Aaron’s worldview. ¯_(ツ)_/¯”

“What do y’all expect from an Instagram that’s a sea of white faces. These instagays who live in the world’s most diverse cities (New York, Los Angeles, etc.) and yet manage to never socialize with or build friendships with a single person who isn’t white have long ago told us who they are.”

“I thought trash was picked up on Mondays in Malibu.”

“This is so fucking corny and so typical of the instagay community. How do you not care he voted against our communities interest while in congress?”

“It’s the epitome of what white gay privilege looks like.”

Note – I did email Mr. Cormier to see if he had any statement he’d like to make about the post and Mr. Schock. I’ve not received a reply at this time. If he does respond, I’ll be sure to update this post.

‘Totally-Not-Gay’ But Caught With His Hand In The ‘Tip Jar’

'Totally-not-gay' former Republican Congressman Aaron Schock was recently caught on video tipping a go-go dancer at Boy Bar, a gay club in Mexico City this past weekend.
‘Totally-not-tipping’ Aaron Schock (screen capture)

‘Totally-not-gay’ former Republican Congressman Aaron Schock was recently caught on video tipping a go-go dancer at Boy Bar, a gay club in Mexico City this past weekend.

The Daily Mail was first to share the video footage which quickly went viral.

“The last person I would expect to see in Boy Bar is a former Republican congressman,” said the individual who recorded 37-year-old Schock at the nightclub. “I was taking a video of the go-go dancer on stage and all of a sudden I saw him.

“He looked like he was enjoying himself,” added the source.

To be honest, I’m terrible with faces, so I don’t know that I would have recognized the former lawmaker in a gay bar in another country.

But Schock did post on his Instagram that he was visiting Mexico City over the weekend, so…

A post shared by Aaron Schock (@aaronschock) on Jun 22, 2019 at 5:15pm PDT

Schock resigned from Congress in 2015 amid allegations he had misappropriated campaign funds for his own use.

This past March, federal prosecutors agreed to drop 24 charges of fraud, making false statements and theft of government funds if he repaid more than $100,000 in misappropriated funds.

Over the past several months, Schock, who has never publicly come out, has been spotted frolicking with shirtless gay men in a number of locales including the Coachella festival and a West Hollywood hotel pool.

Long suspected of being gay, Schock angered the LGBTQ community by voting against LGBTQ rights and interests during his time in the House.

As a congressman representing Illinois, he voted against the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” against adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the federal hate crime laws, and for the Defense of Marriage Act, which would have defined marriage as only between a man and a woman.

To be clear, I’m never one to out a gay person UNLESS they used their position to harm the LGBTQ community while enjoying the privileges that we’ve fought for.

The Twitterverse has had a field day with the new-found video clip:

FEC Filing – Is ‘Totally-Not-Gay’ Aaron Schock Running For Congress Again?

Is former Congressman/current West Hollywood gadabout Aaron Schock planning on running for Congress again soon?

Is former Congressman/current West Hollywood gadabout Aaron Schock planning on running for Congress again soon?

Just days ago a Statement of Organization was filed or updated with the Federal Election Commission by Schock for Congress.

The date shown is June 7, 2019 and the form indicates it was signed by Schock himself.

The office sought is listed as Illinois’ 18th Congressional District and the party? Yep, still Republican.

The 38-year-old is also named as the Treasurer, although there’s not much to tend to since the Financial Summary shows 0.00 funds.

In 2015, Schock resigned from office in disgrace for alleged financial misconduct regarding his campaign funds.

Back in March, the Justice Department agreed to drop the corruption case involving false expense claims and inappropriate use of campaign funds. In exchange for paying $110,000 in restitution and taxes, the 24 felony counts against him were dropped.

The agreement did not require him to admit any wrongdoing, and left him without a criminal conviction.

At the time, the Republican told CBS News that he hadn’t shut the door on a possible return to politics at some point in the future.

“At 37-years-old, I don’t think I’ll ever say never,” said Schock. He added that he had “enjoyed being out of politics the last four years.”

Of course, we know he’s enjoyed a lot over the last few years than just “being out of politics.”

The ‘totally-not-gay’ former Congressman has been spotted and photographed hanging, kissing and getting handsy with gay men at Coachella, flirting at WeHo pools and apparently getting busy on dating apps.

Now, nothing wrong with that – unless you spent your time in office opposing LGBTQ rights like voting against the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ or supporting a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

(images via Facebook/Queerty)

For the record, Schock denies being gay. So, there.

It is difficult to imagine how a run for political office would play out.

The recent stories and photos would definitely come up at some point, and he would have to address those, as well his insistent denials about being gay.

Would a conservative-leaning, Republican district vote for him? Or, in a wider context, who would vote for him? A guy who lied over and over on the issue, and voted against a community that he’s a part of?

Does Schock have a second chapter in politics in mind?

Or, maybe he just re-upped the FEC filing for “old times sake.”

We’ll just have to see.

Coachella Gays Who Posed With ‘Totally Not Gay’ Aaron Schock Apologize: “We Didn’t Know Who He Is”

Two of the gays who posed for photos with 'totally not gay' former Congressman Aaron Schockat the Coachella Music Festival last week have posted an apology to the LGBTQ community for not knowing who he is and his impact on the LGBTQ community.

best gay life at Coachella

Two of the gays who posed for photos with ‘totally not gay’ former Congressman Aaron Schock at the Coachella Music Festival last week have posted an apology to the LGBTQ community for not knowing who he is and his impact on the LGBTQ community.

In a post on each of their Instagram accounts, William Rossi and Rob Masi say they had just met Schock on the day of the photo, and had no idea who he is or how horrible he’s been to the LGBTQ community.

“In regards to the picture we took at Coachella, Rob and I have been out since we were 14 and 15, respectively; and living as proud gay men in a loving relationship, who hope to get married one day,” they begin. “We are entirely against Aaron Schock’s values, views, and actions.”

“We had just met Aaron on the day of the photo at Coachella, and before posting it, we were embarrassingly unaware of: who he was, his political views, and the extent of his negative impact on the LGBTQ community which we are proudly a part of,” the couple continued.

The duo say the inclusion of Schock came about out of a desire to be ‘polite’ to a stranger, nothing more.

A post shared by William Rossi (@willrossi3) on Apr 18, 2019 at 3:31pm PDT

“Rob and I wanted to take a photo with our friends at Coachella, to celebrate our last day there,” say the men. “Being polite, we allowed Aaron – who was basically a stranger to us and someone we just met – to include himself in our photo.”

The couple made it clear that “if we had more knowledge of his beliefs and past actions,” they would have never hung with him nor included him in their photo.

“We would not have allowed Aaron to join the photo, nor would we have associated with him if we had more knowledge of his beliefs and past actions,” say the men from San Francisco. “For our own political ignorance, we are deeply sorry.”

They also include a ‘call to action,’ if you will, encouraging Schock to come out.

“We hope Aaron does decide to come out publicly and live the gay life he so freely enjoyed at Coachella, the kind of life so many out and proud LGBTQ individuals have fought for and have made possible for younger gays like to live today,” encouraged the men.

They also say, now that they are aware of his past anti-LGBTQ votes in Congress, that Schock should apologize to the tribe he now seems to want to be a part of.

“And we hope if or when Aaron does decide to come out and own his actions, he apologizes and makes amends with the LGBTQ community, because he certainly owes us one,” they conclude.

Here’s a photo of the two men, sans Schock, at Coachella.

Quisling Aaron Schock Seen Hanging With The Coachella Gays

Eagle-eyed folks at Coachella this past weekend spotted ‘totally-not-gay’ former GOP Congressman Aaron Schock hanging out shirtless with a gaggle of gays.

Photos were shared in a Facebook post, Schock appeared to be having quite the time at the music festival posing shirtless with a group of men as well as looking a bit parched (or something) standing in a crowded tent (again, shirtless).

And Queerty is reporting that Schock was seen later making out with a guy as his hands were getting busy:

As the pics were shared across social media, several LGBTQ activists expressed their disgust that gay men would be hanging out with the former Republican congressman from Illinois who voted against LGBTQ interests during his time in office.

He had a voting record that was very anti-LGBTQ from voting against the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ to supporting an amendment to the Constitution that would ban marriage for gays. All that and more led to a zero rating from the Human Rights Campaign.

Before a financial scandal that promptly led to his resignation in 2015 – you may recall the Downton Abbey-inspired decor of his Washington D.C. office – Schock was making quite the name for himself posing shirtless on the cover of fitness magazines as well as traveling with his own personal photographer.

But that all went awry when he was charged with 24 counts that including wire fraud, mail fraud, making false statements, filing false tax returns and more in November of 2016. Just a few weeks ago, prosecutors agreed to drop the charges if he paid $42,000 in back taxes as well as returning $68,000 to his congressional campaign funds.

While he never came out during his time in Congress, rumors have followed the 37-year-old for years, including one from out journalist Itay Hod.

And former Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts (who came out in 1987) told Business Insider in 2015, “I don’t know if he’s gay or not, but if he is, he’s forfeited any right to privacy because he votes anti-gay. My view is that people who are gay who vote to support the right of other people to do it have a right to privacy, but the right to privacy does not include hypocrisy.”

Matthew Rettenmund of Boy Culture wrote about the Coachella photos saying, “It is appalling to see disgraced former Republican Rep. Aaron Schock cavorting at Coachella with members of the smug, white abs club considering his unapologetically anti-gay voting history.”

“From the closet, he voted against gay marriage, against rescinding Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and more, and then he left office due to financial irregularities that he seems to have gotten away with,” added Rettenmund.

James Duke Mason, who posted the photos to Facebook, penned this caption:

“Normally I wouldn’t comment on something like this, but I am just infuriated by these images of former Republican (and anti-gay) Congressman Aaron Schock partying with a group of gay men at Coachella. The fact that he would think he could show his face in public, particularly when he has NEVER renounced or apologized for his votes against gay marriage, gays in the military and against anti-discrimination laws is astounding. My intention isn’t to out him or target him personally, but simply to point out the hypocrisy. I saw him at a recent gay social event in West Hollywood and shook his hand before I realized who he was; he should really be ashamed of himself. And the gays who associate with him without calling him out should know better. It really is a disgrace.”

Others on Twitter had some opinions as well.

 

Aaron Hernandez’ Gay Lover Comes Forward: “We Didn’t Want People To Know”

In April of 2017, former NFL player Aaron Hernandez committed suicide while incarcerated at Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Massachusetts.

The 27-year-old was serving time after having been found guilty of the murder of Odin Lloyd in 2013.

In the aftermath of his death, scores of news stories explored possible reasons why the former New England Patriots player would take his own life.

In march of this year, a documentary titled Aaron Hernandez Uncovered on Oxygen featured his former lawyer saying, “This man was clearly gay.”

Now, Hernandez’s boyhood friend, Dennis SanSoucie, has come forward claiming to be Hernandez’s on-again/off-again gay lover.

Speaking to the Boston Globe, SanSoucie says the relationship began in middle school and continued through high school.

During their time in high school, the two became a power duo on the football field with SanSoucie as quarterback and Hernandez as receiver.

In their junior year of high school, SanSoucie connected with Hernandez for 67 passes for a total of 1,807 yards, a Connecticut high school record.

But SanSoucie tells the Globe that there was a completely different, secret life the two led outside of football.

SanSoucie shares that they would get high on marijuana often – before school, before football practice and before games.

It was during this time the two began a physical relationship as well, keeping the secret between themselves.

“Me and him were very much into trying to hide what we were doing,” SanSoucie shares with the Globe. “We didn’t want people to know.”

SanSoucie says that growing up in the traditional, conservative community of Bristol, the idea of being openly gay would not have played well. SanSoucie was heading into the military after graduation and Hernandez was bound for football glory.

The Globe report also indicates that anything ‘gay’ would have been extremely difficult at home. Hernandez’s brother Jonathan shares that their dad had been “deeply homophobic.”

He recalls Aaron coming home one day and announcing he wanted to be a cheerleader. The dad shut that idea down quick, according to Jonathan.

‘Faggot’ was used all the time in our house,” says Jonathan. “All the time. Standing. Talking. Acting. Looking. It was the furthest thing my father wanted you to even look like in our household. This was not acceptable to him.”

The Globe also reports that both Jonathan Hernandez and George Leontire (Aaron Hernandez’s former lawyer) say that Aaron had hinted at having been the victim of sexual abuse as a child. But neither identify who that person would have been.

Now out and living in Las Vegas, SanSoucie says he believes Aaron would be proud of him for coming forward now.

“I really truly feel in my heart I got the thumbs-up from him,” he said.

Over 30 Come Forward Regarding Anti-LGBT Family Values Lawmaker Wes Goodman’s Sexual Advances

Wes Goodman (via Twitter)

Wow. This story just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Caleb Hull, writing for the Independent Journal Review, has interviewed dozens of men who say disgraced Ohio state Rep. Wes Goodman had approached them with inappropriate sexual overtures and/or sent sexually suggestive photos via Snapchat.

Goodman resigned from office last week after he was caught having consensual sex in his Ohio state office. But it seems that was just the tip of the iceberg.

Hull points out that the approach for the vast majority of men Goodman engaged was similar across the board.

Goodman has a reputation of reaching out to those involved in politics via Facebook messenger — but things tend to quickly turn south as he has been known to flirt with men, solicit sex, and even send pictures of his genitals, according to dozens of sources. The majority of the people he targets are between the ages of 18 and 24 and have had very little interaction with him personally.

In many instances of his alleged sexual misconduct, Goodman apparently offered to be a “mentor” for those looking to get into politics. Because of the power he had, his victims say they were afraid to report instances of abuse for fear of damaging their own political careers.

[snip]

The sources informed IJR that many more photos of extremely explicit behavior — including Goodman in his underwear drinking beer, him showing his legs, and pictures of his penis — exist. Goodman always sent these on Snapchat to avoid the photos being saved, which is likely part of the reason why it has taken so long for his behavior to be exposed.

The source who received pictures of his legs and him drinking beer in his underwear told IJR that he thought about tweeting about the incident to call him out “for being a perverted weirdo,” but decided not to. He ultimately described Goodman as “a major creep.”

From one source: “Goodman asked me personal questions such as if I have a girlfriend or I was single and ‘how big I was down there.’ He also asked if I was the big or small spoon and the catcher or the pitcher. He would snap me late at night around 2 and 3 a.m. saying his wife was sleeping and he was bored and lonely.”

Goodman told one of the men he needed help “alpha to alpha” and that “it wouldn’t be gay if it’s just two alphas.”

Remember, this was all happening as Goodman maintained a public image that portrayed him as seriously homophobic.

Many of the men Goodman approached took pics of their phone screens to capture the interactions.

Here’s just some of the screen captures. There’s much more at the Independent Review Journal. I highly recommend reading the full article.
