Abortion clinic 'bubble zones' trump 1st Amendment?

Via James Stone
Abigail Beinborn's insight:

This goes against the first amendment. People have a freedom of speech and to petition.  Making a boundary around the abortion clinics would be limiting their freedom to petition in the U.S. Constitution.

In response to naknuts37:

The article talked about how the US Supreme Court heard complaints in Massschusetts. The complaints were about limiting the First Amendment rights for pro-life to provide protection to abortion facilities. I was surprised the people wanted to limit their rights after reading this article. What kind of protection does abortion facilities want? 

Austin Robertson's comment, April 27, 2014 6:12 PM
The freedom of protesting should be protected. If someone is doing something that is going to help their life because they can't take care if a baby or because they were raped, they can do what they want. But protesting should be allowed.
Lauren Heim's comment, May 25, 2014 7:47 PM
This is definitely violating the first amendment. They have the right to petition even if it is a nuisance. If they took it to court they would definitely lose. This is ridiculous.

Abigail Beinborn's insight:

Immigration is another public policy issue the government has had for years. The 14th amendment, all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States, protects their children as U.S. citizens. There are a lot of mixed emotions about this topic. It is sad that their dad is going through all these charges that could lead to death, but what he did many times is illegal. Immigration is a very controversial topic in government and with citizens.

This article outline some voting issues around the country.  I think that an id should not be require since it is supposed to be anonymous. I think that people should have to get their picture taken. If their picture matches the picture of someone who had already voted(the person at an earlier time) then they are not allowed to vote again.  This should be adopted by all states to make it fair for everyone.

This article discusses and talks about voting rights in different states and how that applies to the government.

I think this is a great thing the government provides. There are many that can't afford a nicer car that functions properly. When you go to a car lot, they have to make money by selling it for more than they received it. This gives people the chance to afford a nicer vehicle for transportation.

Joe Smith's curator insight, April 16, 2014 6:59 PM

This is about the government auctioning off theit unwanted cars. They don't want them because they cause extra maintence and storage cost. So the gover meant sells them at low prices.

Lauren Heim's comment, May 4, 2014 8:32 PM
I personally believe that this is also a good idea because going into the laws people are breaking chances are they already knew they were doing something wrong and knew that selling of their vehicle or getting it taken away was a consequence. So selling these vehicles to anyone that shows up to buy them would be the criminals loss. It sucks but it's also reality.

A powerful point is made in saying "we just need to get back to the constitution". It's the right thing to do, but it's also like saying we need to get back to colonial times in general. Technology and knowledge have a great effect on how our government is run and who gets a say in what. Citizens of the United States are definitely blinded by some of the governments choices. We're always told that they're doing what's best for us, but in reality, it's probably what's easier for them. The country as a whole needs to take a few steps back and rework our vision for our future.

I definitely think that we need to go back to the Constitution like it's saying, but it is almost impossible. I feel like there are so many new things that come about that the government has to make certain exceptions and it's hard not to give someone else a little push towards success. there are so many things that are government does that helps one group positively, but another group negatively.

This article is about whether honking your car is a form of freedom of speech or a noise ordinance. when some one honks it can mean they are trying to get their attention or because they are ,mad. if you are driving by protestors honking can be used in a mean to disrespect them. So they are wondering if free speech can be illegal at times.

Mitchell Forrest Enerson's curator insight, April 23, 2014 9:37 PM

If you really believe that honking your horn is that annoying maybe you should learn to drive so people don't feel the need to honk at you. Honking also is not a freedom of speech that should be protected. Obviously honking is a key part of driving and for the safety of drivers but if being used in excess there could be consequences. A easy way to take car of the issue is to take the people excessively honking right off the road.

 

Austin Robertson's comment, April 27, 2014 6:09 PM
This is just another person trying to make up in their own mind what the first amendment really means. Honking your horn is not a form of free speech, it's form of being an idiot. Granted people need to learn how to drive, they only need to be honked at once not excessively.

Freedom of the press applies to everyone -- yes, even bloggers (1st amendment)

Freedom of the press applies to everyone -- yes, even bloggers (1st amendment) | Gov & Law- Abigail Beinborn | Scoop.it

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.

It is great to see that even the Chief of Police understands that he is not above any citizens. All of the police work should be shown to the people just as any citizen's is. People are often shown and portrayed poorly but when it comes to police officers they seem to be always taken as great people. They are not above the law and need to be treated just as any other citizen of the United States.

Remaking Federalism to Remake the American Economy

Remaking Federalism to Remake the American Economy | Gov & Law- Abigail Beinborn | Scoop.it

Federalism is not a gift that Washington bestows on state houses and city halls. Rather, it is a special, often dormant, vehicle for galvanizing and unleashing the talents and energies of an entrepreneurial nation. The president has an historic opportunity to usher in a new era of pragmatic, collaborative federalism that capitalizes on the economic power of metros and the policy creativity of state and local leaders. Remaking federalism is the path toward an economy that is productive, sustainable and inclusive. More broadly, it can be a vehicle for economic prosperity, fiscal solvency and political comity—if the next president is willing to take it.

Making the debt cap bigger is only going to hurt us. I do not like this idea and I do not like the direction that Obama is leading us in.

Abigail Beinborn's insight:

The article relates to Government and Law because this guy is getting in trouble because of a law he broke. The government shut down is medical marihuana after years of him showing it to people in the government. He got charged 80years in prison for breaking many laws. Do you think the accused him correctly?

I feel really bad for this man because he thought he was fine with the law, but he went through state law and not government law. The supremacy clause states that the federal law is the law of the land, everything else is in the state's hands. However many americans don't know quite how this works. Also if medical marijuana is legal, but growing marijuana isn't, then where will the people who really need it get their medical marijuana? Something needs to change here.

This is ridiculous. How can our government prosecute someone for doing nothing wrong? I really hope this guy doesn't have to go to jail.

I believe this is wrong on many levels. The government only did that because in the end all they care about is heir image and they would not like it if people were to find out that government officials were using medical marijuana. Not only do I disagree on the fact that he was wrongly punished because the government is worried about their image... I also believe that they could be worrying about real dangers out in the world like murderers and rapists. Murderers and rapists get less time than that even. This is ridiculous.
