SOCIALIST PARADISE The Greatest Boxers

NO SUCH THING AS A SOCIALIST PARADISE

W

hatever you think about Sweden and what we did, you have to realize that we had a great society first,” Johan Norberg, a Swedish historian, filmmaker, and Cato Institute senior fellow, said in a recent lecture titled “No, Bernie! Scandinavia Is Not Socialist! Liberals like Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., frequently hold up Scandinavian countries as successful experiments in “democratic socialism.” A historian and native Swede, however, is speaking out against their failure to observe the clear capitalistic traits of Scandinavian markets. ”“We were incredibly wealthy, we trusted each other socially, there was a decent life for everybody. That’s what made it possible to experiment with socialism; then it began to undermine many of those preconditions,” Norberg said during the June 20 event hosted by The Fund for American Studies and the office of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. 

It appears both Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez have missed the point, according to the historian. I think that countries like Denmark and Sweden do very well. I think it depends on what we mean by socialism. If we mean socialism is what the old Soviet Union was, that’s not my thing. If you think of socialism as what China is, that’s not my view. My view is that you have an economy in which you have wealth being created by the private sector, but you have a fair distribution of that wealth, and you make sure the most vulnerable people in this country are doing well. Earlier this year, Ocasio-Cortez said in a “60 Minutes” interview that her policies “most closely resemble what we see in the U.K., in Norway, in Fin-

land, in Sweden.” However, the Constitutional Rights Foundation  explains how the Swedish government places its heaviest taxes on the middle and lower classes, and all of the benefits they have such as universal health care and

government-sponsored college education comes from steep taxes. Norberg pointed to the same data in his speech. According to a Tax Foundation report, “Scandinavian income taxes raise a lot of revenue because they are actually rather flat. In other words, they tax most people at these high rates, not just high-income taxpayers.“The bottom line: Copy the Nordic model if you like, but understand that it entails a lot of capitalism and pro-business policies, a lot of taxation on middle-class spending and wages, minimal reliance on corporate taxation, and plenty of copays and deductibles in its health care system,” the J.P. Morgan report adds.”

SOVIET ESPIONAGE IN THE UNITED STATES

S

ince the late 1920s, the Soviet Union, through its intelligence services, used Russian and foreign-born nationals as well as Communist, and people of American origin to perform espionage activities in the United States.] These various espionage networks had contact with various U.S. government agencies, transmitting to Moscow information that would have been deemed confidential. One chief aim was the infiltration, placement, and subversion of American political life at all levels of society in what KGB defectors from the Soviet

Union described as their active measures and psychological warfare assignment; accounting for 85% of all KGB activities. The processes is identified by Yuri Bezmenhof, a defector from the Soviet KGB, who put the process into the four stages “destabilize, demoralize, crisis, normalization” where an enemy country would be transitioned to communism over several decades. During the Second World War, Soviet espionage agents obtained classified reports on electronic advances in radio-beacon artillery fuses by Emerson Radio, including a complete proximity fuse (reportedly the same fuse design that was later installed on Soviet anti-aircraft

The U.S. said it kicked out 60, so even after they’re gone, at least 40 will ostensibly remain, free to roam Washington and other major U.S. cities under the official imprimatur of their nation’s foreign ministry.

spies overseas disguised as diplomats — including the U.S. When spies are discovered, it’s often more fruitful to follow them discreetly than to expel them. The cat-and-mouse game of counterespionage is about understanding who that officer is in touch with.

So if they’re truly spies and the United States knows it, why not expel them all? The answer, experts say, is that espionage, while murky, potentially distasteful and often illegal, is an accepted international practice. All countries spy and most, if not all, send

MUHAMMAD ALI is Number One Who Are The Other Greatest Boxers Of All-Time?

Here’s another fighter from back in the day who had an absolutely amazing win-to-loss ratio. Many consider Archie Moore the most celebrated light heavyweight of all-time. Moore was a defensive mastermind who had a chin made of steel. His nickname was “The Old Mongoose,” and he recorded the most knockouts in boxing history, 131. After 219 professional fights, Moore decided Boxing is not a subjective sport by any to hang it up in 1963. He was placed in the Hall of Fame in 1990. means.

LA CHARGERS REPORT

Joe Frazier – 32 Wins, 4 Losses

You know he’s a great boxer when only Muhammad Ali and George Foreman are the ones to hand you defeat. Joe Frazier had two losses from Foreman and Ali but would terrorize his other opponents, handing out 27 knockouts. Frazier was also a gold medalist at the 1964 Olympics. Pugilists were very cautious of Frazier’s left hook because it could have very well left you unconscious. He earned the nickname “Smokin’ Joe” and landed in the World Boxing Hall of Fame and the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

Bernard Hopkins – 55 Wins, 8 Losses

Bernard Hopkins didn’t learn to box traditionally. He was taught at Graterford Prison while serving an 18-year sentence. Upon his release in 1988, Hopkins debuted and soon became one of history’s best pound-for-pound boxers. Hopkins earned the nickname “The Alien” as he used great fundamentals to topple some of the best fighters in the world like Oscar De La Hoya and Winky Wright. Hopkins also had another remarkable accomplishment of defending his middleweight belt for a record 20 consecutive times.

Manny Pacquiao – 60 Wins, 7 Losses

The Filipino boxer, Manny Pacquiao seemingly does it all. Not only is he one of the best fighters to step in the ring, but he also has a seat in Congress for his country. Many consider him the greatest Asian boxer ever. Pacquiao is an 11-time world champion and the only one to hold eight-division world championships in history. He is a southpaw boxer with quick hand speed, punching power and amazing stamina combined with footwork. ESPN had Pacquiao ranked at number two for their 2016 list of best pound-for-pound fighters in the last 25 years.

What would the Chargers do without star running back Melvin Gordon? The results were mostly positive, with the team rushing for 88 yards before most of the offensive starters were pulled midway through the second quarter. Tranquill was one of the bright spots during Thursday’s preseason opener against the Cardinals. The former Notre Dame product’s hard work was recognized by the coaching staff and because of it, he earned reps with the first-team at middle linebacker last night. He blew up a run on one play, which is a familiar sight to all. Look for the rookie to get a good amount of playing time this Sunday against the Saints, as he continues to make an effort to creep up the depth chart. The Chargers showed that they don’t need Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram on the field at all times to get after the quarterback last Thursday. Led by Uchenna Nwosu, Isaac Rochell and Chris Peace, there was a ton of pressure generated. Last night at practice was defensive end Anthony Lanier who stole the show. Lanier had back-to-back sacks off the left edge on second and third down in the team’s 7-on-7 drill. Free safety Nasir Adderley, linebacker Kyzir White, defensive end Patrick Afriyie and cornerback Trevor Williams did not practice on Monday. The standout from Thursday undrafted free agent Chris Peace left practice with his left thigh wrapped. Coach Anthony Lynn said that he has a groin injury.

SCANDALS

The Manhattan Madam Kristan Davis

with hourly prices that went over $1,000. She collected client details in a massive black book that would make most other madams jealous. On the side, she built in enough leisure time to date baseball star Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez. After spending four months on Rikers Island for promoting prostitution, she came out and decided to focus on running for governor instead of doing the governor. She now represents the Anti-Prohibition Party. Though chances of her being elected are remote, she wouldn’t be the first madam to make it in politics.

Making money off the world’s oldest profession might just be the world’s oldest business. With profits ranging from 40% to nearly 100%, pimping’s money lures in all kinds of characters. Women, in fact, have become just as notorious as men in the business — just ask Heidi Fleiss. Whether they’ve run with criminals, serviced politicians, or owned a famous Robert Muller and brothel, the pimps and madams below The Manhattan Madam have earned themselves a spot in US history. Davis, a savvy businesswoman, earned ‘Manhattan Madam’: I don’t have anymillions through her high-end business, thing on Russian collusion.

Before ‘Manhattan Madam,’ Kristin Davis testifies before special counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury, she told NBC News’ Anna Schecter that she was not in contact with Roger Stone in the time leading up to the 2016 election.

Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel Audiences remember Stan Laurel as the mild-mannered, bumbling foil from the double act Laurel & Hardy. The real Laurel, however, was a hard-drinking womanizer who often displayed a violent temper. This became quite clear during his divorce from his third wife, Vera Shuvalova. Laurel was loud and angry when he drank, and Shu-

valova was the same. This often resulted in shouting matches that occasionally turned violent. Both Stan and Vera found themselves in court for drunk driving on separate occasions. When Shuvalova was charged, she claimed that she had to flee for her life when Laurel came after her with a gun. Papers reported that Shuvalova once was saved by friends after Laurel dug a grave in the backyard, claiming that he intended to bury her alive. Their divorce agreement contained a clause forbidding Shuvalova from publishing anything related to their marriage.

THE F-35 JOINT STRIKE FIGHTER The F-35 could make some neighborhoods in the U.S. unlivable America’s newest jet fighter is a technological marvel, but is it too noisy to live near? The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter is designed to fight and win against the most technologically advanced adversaries in the world. One opponent it wasn’t ready for, however, was suburban sprawl. Across America, communities living near Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps bases up in arms over the single seat fighter flying over and near their neighborhoods, disrupting the tranquility of their homes and subjecting them to “vacuum cleaner” levels of noise. The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter is equipped with one of the most powerful military aircraft engines in the world. Making the F-35 a single engine fighter ensured the need for a particularly powerful engine. The Pratt & Whitney F135 engine delivers 43,000 pounds of thrust, single-handedly propelling a 70,000-pound aircraft, laden with weapons and fuel through the air with the power and agility to defeat threats. Stars and Stripes reports on communities

near Boise, Idaho and their effort to identify the noise impact of F-35 basing at Boise Airport. The Pentagon is considering basing an Air National Guard F-35 unit at Boise Airport, and a 1,099-page environmental impact statement for the base has some grim news. “The statement

said 272 households with about 665 people would regularly be subjected to noise as loud as a vacuum cleaner 3 feet away. ”Those houses would likely become unlivable. Nearby schools would experience “speech interference,” meaning it would become difficult to hold conversations at a normal volume. One of the F-35’s lesser known problems, at least on a national level, is how noisy it is. This has become an issue in communities surrounding military air bases around the country. As the F-35 is set to replace older jets such as the F-16 Fighting Falcon, AV-8B Harrier,

and F/A-18 Hornet, communities are organizing against a jet many see as a threat to their quality of life. The problem started after World War II, as cities declined as popular areas for settlement and a demand for single family homes in suburban areas grew. Suburban sprawl tilted towards cheap land and inexorably closed in on military bases. Many military bases across America, often built miles from population centers, are now practically ringed with

civilian communities. The situation in Boise mirrors that in other communities across America. In Vermont, the “Green Mountain Boys” of the Vermont Air National Guard are trading in their F-16s for eighteen F-35s, and neighbors around Burlington International Airport are unhappy with reports that 962 units of housing will be affected by noise issues. Residents living near Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort in South Carolina expressed similar concerns although those have seemingly died down. Some residents in and around Madison, Wisconsin — a competitor for the same F-35 jets as Boise — also expressed the same concerns (though that being said, public commentary ran 4:1 in support of the jets.)

He leans over and asks his neighbor if someone is sitting there. He responds, “No, the seat’s empty.” “The first man exclaims, “What?!? Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the NBA finals and not use it?” The neighbor responds, “Well the seat is mine, but my wife passed away and this is the first NBA finals we haven’t been together.” The first man responds,” I’m sorry to hear that. Wasn’t there anyone else, a friend or relative, that could’ve taken that seat?” The neighbor responds, “No, they’re all at the funeral.”

GOVERNMENT WORK

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House. One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee, and the third is from Minnesota. All three go with a White House official to examine the fence. The Minnesota contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. “Well,” he says, “I figure the job will run about $900. $400 for materials, $400 for my crew, and $100 profit for me.” The Tennessee contractor also

does some measuring and figuring, then says, “I can do this job for $700. $300 for materials, $300 for my crew, and $100 profit for me.” The Chicago contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, “$2,700.” The official, incredulous, says, “You didn’t even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?” The Chicago contractor whispers back, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence.” “Done!” replies the government official. And that, my friends, is how the new stimulus plan will work.

PUZZLES I grieve for all my yesterdays How quickly they have passed For time becomes my enemy Today could be my last Doth no one understand me I need my yesterdays My memories are all I have Must they all slip away How shall I stop life’s time machine Each tick is wrought with pain My youth now lost replaced by age With nothing left to gain Today must last forever Tomorrow never comes Will I be just a memory Before the day’s begun
