Carl DeMaio – Entrepreneurial Politics

William Del PilarWilliam Del Pilar Leave a Comment

A Conservative Latino’s View on Politics… I understand how an industry can begin to accept certain standards or ways of doing business that go against successful norms – politics is one of them. Since getting involved in local politics, and how I’ve lived life from both a personal and business perspective, I read Carl DeMaio’s campaign team announcement, and I …

Guest Commentary by Hon. Kristine Alessio “The only infallible criterion of wisdom to vulgar minds – success.”   — Edmund Burke When after a lifetime of membership I left the Republican party, I was accused of doing it for political gain on this site and in other media.

“Spice” and “Bath Salts” are names for synthetic drugs that can cause severe psychosis, brain damage and death. This was the drug at the heart of the “Miami Cannibal” case, which left one man dead and the other with most of his face “eaten off”.
