This court is in favor of Texas because, is it not right to burn a flag, with military people died to protect our flag, it is a symbol of freedom, and it will cause more problems in the world.

The plaintiff could argue that Widget Corporation does have a presence in Texas under so-called “long arm statutes”. Widget Corporation could counter argue that it does not meet the long arm statues, but this is likely to fail, as set in precedent cases such as in Burger King Corp vs. Rudzewicz (1985). This is making the assumption that Widget Corporation does not have any retail or distribution outlets in Texas. Because the client selected Widget Corporation for the widgets, even though there are known retail locations in Texas, it can be assumed that Widget Corporation is advertising in Texas. In the aforementioned case (Burger King Corp vs. Rudzewicz, 1985), the act of advertising met the long arm statutes.
I am a social work student at Frostburg State University and I have completed a policy analysis on the defunding of Planned Parenthood. I oppose defunding of Planned Parent because I believe it serves a good purpose in communities. Defunding of Planned Parenthood would remove all federal funding and allow states to take away state funding from them. Without the 500 million dollar yearly funding that Planned Parenthood receives they will have to shut down a numerous amount of their clinics and many of the nine million clients will not have anywhere to go to for preventive and family planning services. In 2012, Texas stopped funding Planned Parenthood with state aid.
“It has the nation’s second-largest economy” (Texas 6) according to the Texas Civic Health Index. Despite all the Texas greatness and large land there is one thing that is still not so big on, which is voting. Surprisingly only twenty-two percent of Texans vote. This leaves Texas being second to last with the lowest voting rate. There are plenty of reasons Texas has such a low voter turnout rate.

States like Kentucky and Arkansas have successfulness decreased their uninsured health care recipients. But Georgia has not
As you know immigration is a huge problem in the United States, data shows that over the past year’s Texas has increases its size dramatically. In the website Texas State Historical Association states data that since the year 1850 Texas started out with the population of 212,592 and on 2010 the population growth increased to 25,145,561. However, we do not know the exact number of these people that are not American Citizens. In the Washington Post it states that “there are more than 11 million immigrants living, working and establishing families in the United States illegally”. Texas has approximately 1,650,000 almost close to 1.7 million of people who are illegal immigrants that are residents here.

Passing bills to outlaw abortion in Oklahoma. Meanwhile the citizens of Oklahoma are suffering from a reduction in state services. The safety net of medical care for the elderly and disabled is eroding. State agencies are letting people go left and right.

Dr. Martin Luther King stated that "Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane” (Kennedy, 2013). Before the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010, many Americans had no option for healthcare unless they were employed by a company that offered healthcare benefits. During the recession, many people lost their jobs at no fault of their own, and were left without coverage. I found myself in this situation. When I got sick, I tried everything over the counter first.
Desalination challenges The expenditure for desalination equipment and systems is around $14 billion over the next five years and little R&D is done to improve this technology. The other problem is small profit margins, single digit in most cases, with a lot of competition. Most of the big companies have gone out of the business; DuPont for
