"So then, you mean to say you wont.....be submitting a sample of your DNA? What about Gothic? Arent you afraid the public backlash will hurt your company's bottom-line, or at least your own carefully manicured image?" The interviewer, a stunning auburn haired delight, crossed her stocking covered legs and waited for the always dapper CEO to respond. Her eyes briefly sparkling behind the black designer frames of her glasses as her finger re-positioned them further up her nose.
"On the record, no. While I completely understand the intent, the truth is there are simply no security measures in place to insure that my, or anyone's for that matter, biological material wont be used for nefarious, criminal, or morally malnourished ventures. The reality is cloning has, is, and continues to be an unregulated black-market that no government seems willingly to acknowledge or do anything about. Just think for a minute. Just in our short and enlightened lives, how many genetic monstrosities have you seen? Read about? Were taught about in school? Charlemagne's Ultra-Men. The nGod abominations. Alexander Apex, the very creation responsible for North America's extreme overreaction, was, is-in fact-a biological copy of a fabled hero. The Konite King is only here today because the wrong man had a sample of someone elses DNA." he finished with a half-smirk. Refraining from an all out laugh of mocking sarcasm. "The very fact that the United States has the capability to track DNA, even in the absence of said DNA being on file with any criminal data-base in which to match it against, foreign or domestic, is not only frightening, I dare say its scientifically negligible. One genetically augmented clone uses a company to front an illegal extraterrestrial drug empire and the response.....years later, is to clamp down on Corporation heads? Not the drug, not the means in which it was able to be transported from one end of the country (Neveda) to Gothic and only effect that ONE city, not illegal cloning, not the fact that in the vastness of space, illicit drugs are a thing, no. Target the CEO's of every company cause they're, for some unexplained reason, ground zero for the problem in Gothic?"
Yoshi could tell, though did not care he had the reporter re-thinking many of her preconceived notions. Though she would remain professional. Mutely nodding as opposed to openly expressing her shared concerns.
"It sounds as if though you do not 'trust' the North American President. Would that be accurate? If so, would you be willing to state that here; now?" The reporter's intuition and training automatically gleamed the Cyber-Sin Superman's political disposition and attempted to delve deeper. Free-styling her interview, all but abandoning her rehearsed and practiced train of thought in favor of an impromptu Q&A. "I trust he believes what he is doing is what is best for his country. I believe, he believes he is helping. But to answer your questioning plainly, no, no I do not trust the President of the United States. His skills seem more suited for television then actual diplomacy. As of yet I have failed to see a single confrontation resolved without.....with-OUT an all out war. Absolutely no temperament for diplomacy and on the global stage that is dangerously arrogant. It seems that after every major announcement in which he claims to have unquestionable proof, a day later the real story emerges and said proof is shown to be fraudulent. He told the world that Iceland had murdered several diplomats. An act that help launch a war. But then it was laid at the feet of a known hero despite overwhelming evidence pointing to the assassin being none-other then the Winter-Knightfall. Himself, subsequently murdered while standing trial"
No longer willing to withhold his amusement, Yoshi laughed. Nearly spitting up a freshly swallowed gulp of Fiji-water, "You cant make this stuff up. Its straight Hollywood. How many Presidential candidates were arrested, crippled, or authors of their own mutated biological anomalies leading and even during the election? Was their current President actually elected? Or was he simply the last one standing in the aftermath of a political carnival of carnage?"
Checking his watch as the reporter digested his stoic dialog, Yoshi gently re-positioned in his seat with fashionable flexibility and decorum. "As far as Gothic is concerned, my heart goes out to the survivors. The displaced refugees. I've seen speeches about the New York Times. I've seen speeches about the Strigidae and what he'll do to Ivana.....but I have yet to see a single Presidential speech in regards to the millions of displaced Gothinites currently injected into the country. Luckily even Presidential powers do not supersede the foundations of basic humanitarian efforts. I was assured I need not head such unlawful submissions of personal genetic material in order to create a charitable foundation for the displaced citizens of Gothic. Not even the POTUS has the power to dictate Capitalism. Furthermore" a defiant arch of his brow angling upwards while he spoke, "if I so willed it, I could contribute to the restoration of Gothic and nobody would ever know. In fact, maybe I already have....."
