It is common knowledge that some things get better with time as they age. The most popular commodities that come to mind when thinking of this adage are cheese, wine, classic music compositions and existential truths. And then, there are the less thought about champions of truth and justice. George Soros is definitely one of these champions. Putting his story of conquest and personal success aside, the more recent actions he has undertaken are possibly the most noteworthy of all. The numbers, which are at just about the usual staggering levels, speak for themselves, where Soros’ direct contributions come into play. These do not take into account the waves of influence that have washed over political and socioeconomic shores for years.
However, when insiders stop to think about some of the more recent and much needed support of the Democratic Party in United States, many of them have one resounding thought in mind. That thought is a major rising and comeback of a man who remains ever influential but just a bit quiet of late. But as they say “money talks”, George Soros is making his voice heard loud and clear with a fog horn worth 25 billion dollars, give or a couple hundred million bucks. That is a lot of power and voice to share, and in the tug-a-war that seems to never end over in D.C., one man is doing all he can to call out the Republican party. Read his profile at Forbes.
The details of George Soros’ contributions can make the mind swim, if you stop to fully think about them. It starts with 25 million dollars donated to back the democratic presidential forerunner in the 2016 elections, Hillary Clinton. This amount nearly matches the amount he gave in supporting the opponents to President Bush back 2004. That is not chump change, and the best part remains that this amount comes from a man with decades of experience and whose eyes have seen the world. The motivation for these actions are not so much to push against a particular party but to keep a pattern of fear mongering and political manipulation at bay.
Just a few of the core movements that always and forever have Soros’ support are the reform of policies within the US immigration and criminal justice systems. And, that is not to mention religious tolerance, which not only does he believe in but lives by every day. Perhaps, another blessed effect from this overabundant gift to the political left is the domino effect it has when it comes to other donors and activists. The donation under George’s name, in this optical cycle, stirs other backers such as Tom Steyer, Don Sussman, Haim Saban and Fred Eychancer to lend a bit of their substantial financial support toward the Democratic Party as well.

They were roommates. Lloyd explained that he was an Italian-American extrovert on FuelFix.com and was the life of a party. He was a math whiz and his professors knew it. Lloyd reached out to him and Anthony’s comment on his success was “luck.” A Very modest answer for somebody that has seen so much success over the years.
Anthony and his wife Cynthia have a daughter Carena who is now eight years old. She was born at 24 weeks and only 20 ounces and diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). This is a common neurological disease in babies that were born early. This is due to a lack of oxygen or blood flow to the brain. As result, Carena has many developmental issues such as cerebral palsy, impaired motor skills among others. This impacts Anthony and Cynthia’s life every day as they work with her to gain simple skills. In the least few months, she has learned to chew after eight years. This took millions of tries to make it happen and a determination that knows no end. It is an incredbile milestone on nri.texaschildrens.org. Carena works hard to learn other skills as well such as talking and walking. They are committed to finding answers and give generously. They have given $5 million to the Texas Children’s Hospital through the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institue. They have committed a total of $7 million to this effort so near and dear to their hearts.
