flag in The United States and abroad. However; the major limitation in Government prevention of desecration of the flag because of the Supreme Court Case Texas v. Johnson (1989) which ruled that the Government could not create laws against the defilement of the flag because the Supreme Court ruled that it violated the first amendment. To me protecting and ensuring that the flag is properly protected is of extreme importance and I feel as though there should be a government protection of the Flag. It is upsetting that people can freely disrespect the flag as they please because there is nothing that can be done to prevent desecration
Kamehameha was an effective leader because he strictly enforced the kapu system. If a Hawaiian broke a rule such as “splintered paddle”, they would be severely injured or put to death. Kamehameha did this to strengthen his control and make sure others wouldn’t break a rule. This is an example that remained the same after unification. This was good because this kept Hawaii safe and peaceful.
He refers to this as “our taxonomy of nature”, this is false as we aren’t in control of nature for instance Antarctica, there is a treaty in place that no country can claim any part of Antarctica as their own or extract any resources in the area. Another example is Denmark they have 406 islands but over 320 of them are uninhabited this further proves that we don’t own nature as Denmark could easily take them and “plunder” them but they don’t because they know they don’t own nature. But the sheer irony in all of this is that we don’t own nature, nature actually owns
However, Texas State capital displays large replicas of the ten commandments. By law, the US prohibits the establishment of religion. In the 1950s and 1960s, the Fraternal Order of Eagles placed over ten thousand images of The Ten Commandments in schools and courthouses although they omitted the numbers as this made it appear sectarian. Consequently, during the early days of the 21st Century, political and religious organizations filed lawsuits questioning display of the Ten Commandments in Public Buildings. The opposers argued that this violated the establishment clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States while the proposers argued that the Commandments represented moral and legal foundations of the society.
In our society, polygamy is rigorously forbidden, it is illegal in all the fifty states of our country. It is extremely important to keep it this way. People should not have more than one partner, let alone legal children from different people. Even back in the day, this was illegal and I highly doubt that someday it is going to change. There is no way that The U.S culture accepts polygamy as a normal thing.
I have heard that Isaac Newton is going into prison because of his theory about gravity, the reason why we drop stuff and it doesn 't float or raises up is all because of gravity. So you people think that he is wrong and his theory is incorrect? Well I am sure there is no proof, matter of fact if you have proof please tell me, or even show me the proof in person! Otherwise there is no reason to take this further. Isaac Newton has no reason to be accused going to prison I refuse it My client does not deserve to be going to prison.
Apparently rarely used, the 26-year-old law threatens one year in jail and a $4,000 fine for those who intentionally damage, deface, mutilate or burn the U.S. or Texas flags.”(Lindell). If flags can be burn legally under free speech then the Pledge of Allegiance should be optional rather than required. And also the first Amendment say “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances” (U.S. Const. Amend.
Turner hesitates to mention anyone in his essay who is not male or Germanic or at least European, leaving out huge demographics of people who heavily influenced the West. The lack of recognition for the people who actually built the country, with or without choice, is detrimental to history and representation later on in America. The Europeans that came to America had very oppressive laws of property which they carried over with them. The Natives who had been living there for years had a very different concept of property; many believed that the land was gifted to everyone and no one person could own any part of that land. However, the Europeans refused this idea and saw this as an opportunity to take whatever they wanted.
It has no place in modern leadership dictionary. We need to be updated as to what is happening in our country if we are still practising democracy. As they say: democracy, is government of the people, by the people and for the people. It is scandalous that the Presidency has not said a word over this matter since it came to the limelight, while the UK and other international movers and shakers have blasted military incursion. Exactly what should be the meaning of Aso Rock silence?
On January 27th, 2017 President Trump placed a travel ban on the following countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, and Syria. This did not allow immigrants or refugees from those countries, not even green card holders, to come into the United States. Passing the travel ban was inappropriate because in the Immigration and Nationality act, it stated “no person could be discriminated against in the issuance of an immigrant visa because of the person's race, sex, nationality, place of birth or place of residence.” This is an example of religious injustice because it is targeting a certain religion resulting in
Although the state disregarded the Full Faith and Credit clause, the court upheld the argument because the couple had not established bona fide residence in Nevada. To become a legal, bona fide resident of a State, one must reside there for the state’s required amount of time and have the intentions of residing there permanently or at the least, indefinitely. Williams and Hendrix clearly did not intend to do so. As a result, the two were convicted of bigamous cohabitation. The defendants, Williams and Hendrix, were prosecuted for bigamous cohabitation by the state of North Carolina.
American citizen Fred Korematsu refused to comply with interment orders and was convicted of violating military orders and taken to an internment camp. Korematsu appealed his case to the Supreme Court. He claimed that he was given no due process, and that the Fifth Amendment guaranteed him a fair trial. He also noted that no judge or jury had convicted Korematsu of a crime, and no evidence suggested that Korematsu posed a threat to the security of the nation. Korematsu also pressed that this was an act of racial discrimination in that military leaders were displaying racist motivations against Japanese Americans, and the Fourteenth Amendment guaranteed him equal protection as an American-born citizen despite his cultural background.
In the Declaration of Rights and Grievances issued by the Stamp Act Congress, they claimed that Parliament lacked the power to tax the colonies because they had no representation. While the Stamp Act was repealed, the colonists were never given representation in Parliament. In the “Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms”, issued by the Second Continental Congress, this same issue was cited as a justification for fighting. “[The British declare] that parliament can ‘of right make laws to bind us in all cases whatsoever.’ What is to defend us against so enormous, so unlimited power?” (Document 5). After ten years of disagreement over Parliamentary representation, the British were still unwilling to grant the colonists this right.
