Bye Bye Beto O’Rourke

Opinion Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Robert Francis O’Rourke’s first few days as a presidential candidate reminded me how much we miss the great talent of Tom Wolfe.

Female peacemakers are among those women who have made a substantial impact on the world, yet between 1990 and 2017 women represented only 2% of mediators and 8% of negotiators in major peace processes, d...
