    Weird Laws of California

    Weird Laws of California

    I am from California and I thought it would be fun to go over some weird laws they have. I love my home state but some of these laws I cannot wrap my brain around. Now I googled these laws and they were consistent across different websites but if I’m wrong, it’s googles fault. I will say this about California, it is definitely a woman. Expensive, finicky and firing off. Let’s move on and have some fun.

    Advertising and the First Amendment

    Advertising and the First Amendment

    Hypocrisies of a Nation Reading the origins of Defamation was an “eye-opener” for me. It touched on multiple issues of law, that were influenced by opinion, religion, or some other bias influencer. I don’t want to lose my thought process, but as this is a journal, I feel I should dictate my thoughts on it before I continue with my assignment. History shows the origins of most of our laws are influenced by some sort of religious background rather than the more objective approach of ethics. If our Constitution holds a clause that should uphold the Separation of Church and State, then why are so many courts and laws influenced by religion? “Some critics of the courts' interpretations of the principle of separation of church and state have argued for the protections of some aspects of religion in government practices. Believing the United States to be a Christian nation, founded on Judeo-Christian religious beliefs, these critics argue that the federal government is only prohibited from establishing a religion at the national level and from interfering with the establishment of religion in the states, but not required to stamp out any hint of religious reference in governmental actions,” (Bailey, 2018).

    Know and Protect Your 2nd Amendment

    Know and Protect Your 2nd Amendment

    What Is Your 2nd Amendment? In simple terms, the second amendment to the United States Constitution gives you the right to keep and bear arms. In other words; this is your right to own a gun and to use that gun- or other weapon- to defend yourself and your property. This is an official amendment added to the Constitution that is considered a “right” given to you as an American citizen. Obviously; there are laws that govern the purchase and use of a firearm or other weapon, but the right to own one is still yours as long as you operate within those laws. We Americans have to face a brutal truth as well; the world is losing its mind, and the need to defend yourself and your property is becoming more and more of a likelihood each day.

    Bryanwatch: September II

    Bryanwatch: September II

    A fairly slow week in the House, with only eleven votes, six of them party line. Biggest news of the week: Rep Steil was one of only 56 Republicans to vote against HR 8337, the Continuing Appropriations Act, which funds government operations through December 11. That’s right, Steil voted in favor of shutting down the federal government on October 1.

    Law as a political weapon

    Law as a political weapon

    Law as a political weapon Courts destroying democracy. The law has always been used by governing authorities, as a means of exerting their right to govern and enforcing their laws on opponents, but in the 21st Century this is being turned on its head and being taken to absolutely absurd levels, as a means of destroying democratic rule.

    Why do i have to tell you i was abused?

    Why do i have to tell you i was abused?

    "I find myself constantly having to replay, over and over and over again the abuse, the trauma which has placed me in an economical disparity and class of mental disability unlike any other" This is what i envision a woman that has suffered from domestic violence telling herself. Every-time i find myself overcoming any barrier, rather it big or small, i have to AT-LEAST mention the nature of my past abuse. Can you imagine having to relive that moment of terror over and over again in your head? all while interacting with a stranger? especially someone like a potential employer, or an organization offering services and goods. The moment when things get too difficult either on your end or theirs you have to tell them "i am a victim of domestic violence", and sometimes being that broad isn't enough. Often you find yourself providing an example of the horrific incident just to prove your point.

    Peoples

    Peoples in my opinion: Darcy Murdock The government has yet to pay adequate attention to systemic poverty, housing, water, sanitation, healthcare, and education problems in Indigenous communities, particularly those in remote and rural areas. The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in September urged the government to remedy what it found were persistent violations of the rights of Indigenous peoples.

    Costa Rica without plastic or carbon emissions in 2021

    "Costa Rica will soon be free of plastic and carbon emissions", several articles state very exaggeratedly, even if the Central American country has indeed put in place measures to fight against single-use plastics as well as to reduce its emissions of carbon.
