I, like so many comic book fans, had already known for over a month what my plans for last weekend were going to be. Since the unexpected success of Ironman from which the unprecedented and extremely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe was born, I knew that every opening weekend I would be spending my Friday night in a movie theater. Last weekend it was the premiere of Captain Marvel, and in the months leading up to it, I was quite excited. The trailers were fun, she’s an awesome superhero with an interesting backstory, and seeing Nick Fury with two eyes was reason enough to watch the movie to see if I could learn how he loses his eye. Yet, this was different, especially considering the statements of actress Brie Larson before the release of the movie.

Earlier today, Beto O’Rourke, a three-term congressman from El Paso, announced that he will join the presidential race. In a text message to a local El Paso news station, Beto O’Rourke confirmed that he will be running for President in 2020.
This week the Senate failed to pass Ben Sasse’s (R-NE) bill which prohibited infanticide and mandated that babies born after a botched abortion receive proper medical care. When this happened, I found myself in a weird position. Though I disagree with the reasoning the Democrats had to vote no, and I am extremely pro-life, I would have voted no too. This is because although I believe it is a great moral issue that must be solved, it is not a federal issue. It is a state issue, and we would be wise to remember that just because it is morally good, does not mean it should that all levels of government should do it.
