RICO Cases Against Politicians

1 post / 0 new

Is Thom not aware of these two cases? I was familiar with Buddy, but not the other. Shagnasty had posted this on another site.

"There are two that I know about off the top of my head. Vincent "Buddy" Cianci (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_Cianci,_Jr) is the former mayor of Providence, RI and was convicted of racketeering a few years ago and is now doing time in federal prison.

Former Louisiana governor, Edwin Edwards (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edwin_Edwards) was also convicted of racketeering a few years ago and is also doing time in the federal prison system."

Earth's credit card has been maxed out!

If Earth's resources were a credit card, we have already maxed out our entire allocation for this year. The think thank Global Footprint Network announced that August 19th was “Earth Overshoot Day,” meaning that all the resources we use after that day exceed what our planet can produce in a single year.
