Jodi Arias: I prefer a death sentence

Jodi Arias: I prefer a death sentence | Gov and law | Scoop.it
Jodi Arias has been found guilty of first-degree murder. She could face the death penalty.

There is no doubt in my mind she should die it was disgraceful what she did. Prison shouldn't even be an option.

Tanner Schatzel's curator insight, May 8, 2013 10:11 PM

I think that she should get the death sentence. She was definitly guilty and she deserves to die for what she has done. If she was in jail for the rest of her life she would probably have to be in solitary confinment because she is famous now and that would suck not being able to see anyone.  That is no way to live. I don't think that people should be able to get the death sentence just because they want it but if they deserve it then they should get it.

This artical has led me to believe, along with many other articals that Congress needs to pass legislation and fit into the budget accomodations for cyber-attack defense.  I don't think that the government treats cyber space as as much of a battle ground as it has the potential to be.  It has the power to destroy our country's infrastructure.

Tanner Schatzel's curator insight, March 21, 2013 1:53 AM

I believe with Noah saying that the government needs to spend more money protecting against a cyber attack. It will be the thing of the future. Pretty much every thing that we do involves a computer so if it gets hacked there is no saying how much we can lose. If the government gets hacked it could be extremly bad. They could get all of our personal information along with the information about the governments secret doings.

George Washington's views on political parties in America

George Washington's views on political parties in America | Gov and law | Scoop.it

BY DENNIS JAMISON, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

 

When George Washington became President of the United States in 1789, there were no political parties.Political parties first emerged during Washington’s first term in office with the Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist Party in 1791 and in the following year, the formation of the Anti-Federalist Party or Democratic-Republicans under the leadership of Thomas Jefferson.

The two political parties formulated their views of how government ought to operate in the new republic.

 

At the end of Washington’s first term, as he was preparing to retire and go back to Mt. Vernon to just be a farmer again, the leaders of the opposing parties both wanted him to reconsider with Hamilton and Jefferson pleading with Washington to stay on for a second term.

Jefferson is credited as stating: “North and South will hang together if they have you to hang on.”

 

Washington finally consented to such sentiments and was again the obvious choice of the Electoral College as they re-elected him in February of 1793.

Political parties must trust voters

Whenever a political party finds itself in a self-created crisis, the common diagnosis is that its ills are a product of the public losing trust in that party. This is true of the Conservatives in the 1990s, of Blair’s Labour Party in the aftermath of the Iraq invasion and the Scottish Liberal Democrats following their electoral annihilation in 2011.

After the last 16 years, with Presidential approval (along with Congressional approval) in the tank, I'm not surprised. Politicians have simply not been able to get their act together, and society does not trust them anymore. I think the problem is that there are very few influential people in the middle of the aisle; both parties are becoming more extreme--or at least, the more talkative/influential people in both parties are. A real centrist party would be great, but I feel as though it'll never gain political power.
Chris Grimm's comment, March 23, 2013 2:34 PM
I agree with Joel that I am not surprised that politicians don't trust voters despite the fact of how sad I think it is. I think that part of the problem is that voters don't trust most of what politicians say because we don't have the capability of understanding what they say is true and what is bent and twisted truth. Amazing the kind of mess America has been able to find itself in
Tanner Schatzel's comment, March 24, 2013 8:31 AM
I think that political parties need to trust voters because that is who elects them in to the positions that they are in. I understand why they might be weary, but I still think that they need to be trusted.

The outcome of this trial will likely make a strong statement about the United States judicial system. While Giles is entitled to "confront" the victim under the United States Constitution, I find it kind of ridiculous that he is using this argument as his defense. Because Giles murdered her, the woman obviously is unable to testify and be confronted in a court of law, and it seems like he is just using this right to his advantage. While I am assuming there is a lot more to this case than is stated in the article, I still don't think Giles should be absolved of his crime. After reading this article, I think that this case will likely be discussed for awhile, as many arguments can be created for both sides, regardless of the outcome.

Kentucky Sheriff Denny Peyman upholds the 2nd Ammendment-Will Not Enforce Any Federal Gun Grabs

“You’ll understand me very well when you leave here today, and why we’re all still going to have our guns here in Jackson.” Peyman said in his opening address to his people.

“I am responsible for the people inside this county… I couldn’t justify, if Obama passes this, it doesn’t matter what he passes, the sheriff has more power than the federal people.” Peyman urged.

“They need to go back and study that. We are a commonwealth. I can ask federal people to leave, they have to leave. I can ask state people to leave, they have to leave.”

“I am the highest elected official in this county, and this is the only opportunity the people have to speak for themselves and say ‘this is what we want.’” Peyman told the audience.

Referring to interviews he has recently conducted with local journalists, Peyman said “They asked ‘how are you going to pull these guns?’, and I said ‘you are never going to pull a gun from Jackson County.”

In an interview with the Lexington Herald-Leader this past weekend, Peyman also stated “I consider this a moral obligation… My office will not comply with any federal actions which violate the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore to uphold.”

In a separate interview with WKYT news, Peyman spoke about what would happen if the federal government attempted to disarm people in Jackson County:

“We’ll see when push comes to shove. It’s going to have to go into the courtrooms. It’s not going to be, I mean we don’t want a bloodbath in our community when they come in to take guns,” he said. “It’s going to have to be taken care of in a court room before it gets to that point.”

“The only thing I’ve ever told people if someone is kicking or coming in their front door, is I only have to listen to one side of the story.” the Sheriff stated at the town hall meeting.

“I can’t get there quick enough to help those people. My best help to them is to let them keep their firearms… There is nobody who doesn’t really need to have one.”

Peyman then referred to the sanctity of the US Constitution, noting “The Second Amendment makes that pretty clear. Our forefathers made that clear, otherwise it would not have been so high [on the Constitution]. It would have been down the list somewhere.”

“This is the part that is emotional to me,” The sheriff said, his voice cracking.

“I would be ashamed if one of them was in this room right now, and having to listen to what we’re having to talk about. I would be ashamed to have them sit here and listen to them talk about all the people that given their rights for this right for us, and we just give it up so flippantly just because somebody says so. If we did everything that somebody says so, we would not be a country today.”

“I talk about what I can do for my county. I can’t stand up for other counties, I can’t do it for them, but I can stand up for my people.” Peyman vowed.

“I was one of the first people to say, I think they need to arm school teachers. Not all of them, but there is somebody that needs to have a weapon.”

The sheriff then spoke about how the media glamorizes mass shootings and makes them appealing to copycat wannabe’s.

“What would happen if the first two or three that tried it got shot coming in the front door?” Peyman said. “They wouldn’t do that anymore, it would be taken from them, there’s no glory in that for them.”

“In Jackson county, as long as I am Sheriff here, I got children, I got family, I got friends, I got everybody here, and I feel a whole lot better coming into a room if I know everybody is packing, than if I’m the only one, because if they take me out first, then they take everybody else out too.” the Sheriff concluded.

Sheriff Denny Peyman should be commended for his fine job in upholding constitutional rights. He is a shining example to other law enforcement officers who should take note of his concerns regarding the ongoing attack on the Second Amendment. Rest assured, Peyman is also not the only Sheriff ready to stand up and defend the rights of his people.

I agree with him that it is his county and even if Obama passes anything he still sees the results in the county he works not our federal goverment or anyone else.

Good for him...we need more sheriff's and state and federal officials who think like him and are willing to uphold the rule of law and our Constitution. Anyone who doesn't keep their oath to defend and protect our rights in the Constitution should be removed from office immediately.

 

I wish we had a sheriff like him...I'm sure Dipstick will go along with whatever his master Obama wants...we need more leaders like our founders!! I propose we start the 'Founders Party'....men and women who will protect&defend our Constitution and not just say it under oath, but mean it!! Patriots who will stand up to tyranny, big government spending and against the slaughter of innocent human beings by abortion. We have an inalieanble right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and that includes a right to defend our rights...including our lives!! Without the right to life and the right to protect and defend ourselves all other rights become null.

This is a tragic thing that happend to a man just doing his job. He did die a hero and the person who killed him should get the worst punishment that can be brought down on him.

I think that it is amazing the things that people will do. This man was supposed to protect this building and he was killed right outside of it. He died a hero and that is how he should be remembered.

Must Read:What Women Should Know About Our Old Boss, Mitt Romney.

Must Read:What Women Should Know About Our Old Boss, Mitt Romney. | Gov and law | Scoop.it

LBN:
Women and past co-workers of Mitt Romney speak up and speak out about their experiences working with Mitt Romney and his commitment to restoring America.

 

It is great to see this post on the popular blogging site for women, Blogher. I hope that these posts will influence women voters to think wisely before they vote in November. So far the Obama administration and campaign has focused on a faux war on women created by the GOP. However, the real war on women is coming from Obama's policies. More women are unemployed or in poverty than they have been in 17 years! Too many are single women, or single moms who do not have a husband to support them and tend to seek welfare to get by. Sadly, they often become govt dependents rather than achieve self-reliance and independence once they become part of the welfare system. 

 

Romney is determined and capable of turning things around, giving women, men and all people in America the chance to become self sufficient and pursue happiness, if they are willing to work hard. Nobody achieves success by depending on the govt to support your needs, whether it is contraception, health care or otherwise....most often the more dependent you become, the less free you become and less capable you become of achieving success. Poverty than becomes a vicious cycle. People living on Indian reservations can attest to this...the govt subsidizes them and gives them land to live on, yet they are unable to come out of poverty. 

 

These women will share their experiences and knowledge of Mitt Romney from a personal, professional and political view. They are women from all political parties including Republican, Democrat and Independents. They believe in America and believe Romney is capable of leading this country out of this economic recession/depression because they have experienced how he leads, makes decisions and how he treats women and cares for others.

 

It is my hope more women will become involved politically and become more aware of what is really going on in our political system. I used to think politics and the news were boring, until I became more involved and learned more and more about Obama when he was running in 2008. Since then, I have become actively involved and engaged in what is going on in the world, especially nationally and how it will affect my future and that of my children's and their children's future. As women, we must stand up for our children's future, because they can't speak for themselves and can't vote. We have to make wise choices and vote for those who will help Americans prosper by giving them a hand up, not a handout!

 

Here is an excerpt of the BlogHer post:

Frankly, we were completely, totally, absolutely fed up.  That’s what we told a reporter from the Milwaukee Sentinel today who asked us why a group of female executives are traveling the country telling women about our former boss Mitt Romney....   

 

....Amazingly, most women don’t know that Mitt had women at his side helping him turn around the Olympics in Salt Lake and fix the economy in Massachusetts. It doesn’t surprise me because I know how Mitt puts together his team. He hires the strongest talent he can find, so naturally he ends up with a lot of women. Mitt says he hires people who will “go through walls” to get the job done; the women who have worked with him over the years definitely fit that description. I worked with him for nine years and can tell you that my colleagues in Salt Lake and Massachusetts are as talented and incredible as any group of women in America.

 

Mitt was recognized every year he was Governor for having more women in Cabinet and senior positions than any other Governor in the country. Women made up half Mitt’s cabinet. Women were at the heart of the economic team he put together to create jobs, cut red-tape and streamline regulations and permitting. He personally chose and campaigned for his Lt. Governor – Kerry Healey – a hard-working, gracious, accomplished woman. His Chief of Staff, Beth Myers, was at the table with him giving advice and counsel throughout his administration – and she has continued to do that in the years since, as campaign manager for his 2008 campaign and as senior strategist in the campaign this time.

I think this article really showed a side of Mitt Romney that people didn't know and that he hires more women than men because he says they are the ones who will go through walls to get things done.

Exhibit A in 4th Amendment privacy cases: technology | Gov and law | Scoop.it

Analysis- Sunset Strip bookie Charlie Katz suspected the feds had bugged his apartment. The Fourth Amendment states Prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and sets out requirements for search warrants based on probable cause. His court case then ended his conviction because of the Fourth Amendment. This is constituional because FBI agents planted a recording device without a warrant.

Eric Olson's insight:

I agree with the bookie case he had his rights violated but for the police sargent if you are using a device paid for by the state or company you are working for they should have the right to browse through your messages.

The FBI shouldn't be allowed to so easily bug people without warrents, or given consent. This type of thing, I'm sure, happens all the time and goes unnoticed therefore our rights cannot be upheld. \
Tanner Schatzel's comment, March 16, 2013 11:44 PM
I don't think the government should be able to GPS track people. That is like searching where you are. You can't search any thing else so why could they search that. The government thinks that they can do anything that they want untill it makes national news and they get sued to stop it.
