Do You Have What It Takes To Pass The US Citizenship Test? Huffington Post These questions were taken from the 100 civics questions about U.S. history and government given to applicants for naturalization by the U.S.
This article is about the fort hood shooting and how there should be more gun control because of it. I think that this is a bad idea because the only reason that the shooting even happened was because soldiers on the base were not allowed to be armed. If they would have been able to carry their firearms with them on base, the shooting would not have killed anyone.
This article is about obamacare and how states are deciding to reject it because they would have to pay much more money to the federal governement if they signed up, it is also about how obamacare makes taxpayers pay for other peoples healthcare who cannot afford it, which is stupid. People should pay for their own healthcare.
Campaigns have fallen prey to the increasing trends of the second screen and watching recorded TV among voters, both of which distract from the TV ads older political consultants are so accustomed to spending a large portion of campaign funds on.
This article relates to campaigns because it is about how tv is not as effective at reaching people as it once was. So many people now use other devices for entertainment, or they can record tv and skip through the commercials.
This article is about the first amendment. We are also doing this as a court case in class. This article is about the case between a pro life group who protests outside of abortion clinics and about if it counts as freedom of speech and expression.
This article is all about the second amendment and how the government seems to be trying to take it away. The government is putting in new regulations that basically make it illegal to buy or sell a gun. This is dumb, because a criminal is someone who commits crimes. So they are not going to care about laws.
This article. Is interesting because the president now wants to end something that he was using to help fight against terrorists. The government started recording phone calls so they could use them in investigations, and now Obama wants to end this. I think it is good, because the article said that they want to make it so that conversation are available for investigations, but they can't just use any of them.
"This strategy of dehumanizing demonization, a core propaganda meme of our time, seems to extend permission to exclude many Arab and Muslim peoples, but especially the Palestinians, from the community of citizens invested with universal human rights, including the right to be heard in one of the most important hunger strikes since Gandhi resorted to this most basic motif of protest. The Palestinians are rendered the new “merciless Indian savages” referred to on July 4, 1776 in the Declaration of Independence."
This article is about how people in the US are dehumanizing Arabs and people who practice Islam. They are doing this because of 9/11 and they blame the group of Muslims and Islamists collectively instead of the people who are actually responsible.
This article is about a new law that would make it mandatory for police to wear body cameras. wearing these would help to keep police officers from commiting any wrong acts like police brutality because they know that they would be being watched and recorded at any time. I think that this is a good idea because it would make sure that police are not abusing their power.
This article is about how fracking harms the environment. It affects everything that come from the environment by polluting things like food with toxic chemicals. people who buy food that was grown locally can be affected because of the fracking that takes place nearby and pollutes the food.
This article is about Obama and how he has lied about almost everything he has done. It also talks about how other presidents have lied, but because Obama made so many promised, he is worse because he has not kept any of them.
Man faces cruel punishment violating his 8th Amendment rights. The 8th Amendment protects citizens from cruel or unfair punishment. This right was violated when the man was sentenced to the death penalty.
This video relates to the second amendment because it is one argument against gun control. This is a good argument, because no one would want to see a law abiding citizen dead more than a criminal dead.
This article is about how the US won't solve it's debt problem. It talks about how Obama (when campaigning for office) said that it was irresponsible that the debt had gotten so high. He has increased it even more. Then what does the government do? They just say that they will increase how much debt they can be in. This is a bad idea because no normal person can go to the bank and say "I'm going to increase my debt limit". doing it like that does not work.
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.
This article relates to federalism because it is about the problem there is with some states legalizing marijuana use while it is still illegal under federal law. The whole point of federalism is to make it so that states can decide their own laws. Technically, marijuana use is outlawed in the entire country, so it is kind of a contradiction to have states that make it legal and not punish them for that.
