“ Since WWII, the United States has been the leader in disbursements of foreign aid around the world almost every year. In 2012, the U.S. sent a staggering $37.7 billion overseas as part of foreign aid.”

Elections officials across the state said that voter ID was hardly an issue during the 11-day early voting period that led up to Tuesday’s primary. But opponents say the law has already disenfranchised voters.
I think it is good that they are requiring photo ID in order to vote.
“House Holds 'Stop Government Abuse Week' Washington Free Beacon House Republicans will push a series of bills this week in an effort to curb abuse and increase transparency in the federal government.”
“ The Department of Justice had a historic opportunity to say that since the people of these states had spoken, as long as what happens in Colorado stays in Colorado, they wouldn't make a federal case out of it.”
I think this is interesting because even tho marijuana is legal in certain states, the federal government can come in and say it is still illegal.
“ABC News Could US government claim $10 million in gold coins discovered in California ... The Post-Standard Some of 1,427 Gold-Rush era U.S. gold coins are displayed at Professional Coin Grading Service in Santa Ana, Calif., Tuesday, Feb.”
I don't think the government should be allowed to take the coins that were in someone's back yard. They were on the peoples property, so the government shouldn't be able to step in.
“ SAN FRANCISCO -- A federal appeals court decided Thursday that a San Diego restriction on carrying concealed guns in public for self defense infringes on citizens' 2nd Amendment rights.”
Analysis: Recent stories have shown bloggers and reporters are posting pictures up and doing things such as videotaping police. Emily Good of Rochester, NY was recently caught by a cop when videotaping him off of her camera. He went over to her and told her to stop and stated it was illegal. When taken to court, she was later charged with obstruction of justice for arguing with a police officer. As it turned out, the police officer was wrong. Videotaping the police and anyone else in a public place is perfectly legal in New York state. The chief of police apologized later on and found out that the 1st amendment does protect these citizens who are deciding to do this. I don't agree with the 1st amendment toward this situation. I feel that everybody should have their own privacy, especially a cop. Why should somebody be able to videotape somebody else or take pictures of somebody else if it isn't okay with the person being captured on camera? I know that if somebody was videotaping me or taking pictures of me, i would feel that its against my personal property and i would definitely say something. I do agree with the 1st amendment, but when it comes to invading personal property, i feel its not right. this article relates to the 1st amendment and freedom of speech. this article is asking if freedom of speech applies to internet bloggers
