Bill Cosby’s sentencing in the wake of Kavanaugh

ast Wednesday, a comedian and actor who had once been the embodiment of family values, trust, and laughter for millions of Americans across the country was sentenced to a prison sentence of three to ten years. 14 years ago, Bill Cosby, now 81, drugged and assaulted Andrea Constand in his home. For Mrs. Constand, and all other survivors of sexual assault, this conviction was a long time coming. While Constand’s case was the only one to withstand the statute of limitations in court, it is suspected by many that Cosby was a serial predator, drugging and assaulting multiple women all across his long running career.

Gov. Cuomo signs Medical Marijuana Bill

In an effort to minimize the growing death toll of opioid overdose, the state of New York has instituted legislation (S8987A/A 11011-B). The new bill, signed by Governor Cuomo, adds acute pain management to the list of conditions medicinal marijuana may be legally used to treat. Using cannabis to ease pain is a method aimed at reducing opioid prescriptions that too often lead to crippling addictions, and sometimes death.

Donald Trump continues to normalize the absurd

On 26th September 2018 President Donald Trump held the fourth solo press conference of his presidency. President Trump most likely held this conference in order to fight back against his administration’s numerous scandals, as well as the incredibly controversial nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The presser also took place only one day after Trump was laughed at while speaking at the United Nations General Assembly. This should have been a fairly straightforward speech by Trump. However, as with all things the President seems to be involved in, the conference quickly derailed and devolved into utter absurdity.
