Disney World is looking into reports that some wealthy visitors are hiring disabled people to pretend to be family members so that they can skip lines.
This article is about wealthy citizens hiring disabled people in order to skip long lines at Disney World. I've been to Disney and know how long the lines can be, but is it really worth hiring a disabled person for the day? As crazy as this seems some people believe it is a good way for disabled people to make some money. These disabled guides run for about $130 an hour. Sounds like a pretty good job for the disabled person.
Minnesota becomes the 12th state to legalize same-sex marriage
This article is very interesting because there has been a lot of talk regarding same sex marriage over the last couple of years. Governor Mark Dayton signed the bill yesterday making Minnesota the 12th state to legalize gay marriage. Regardless of the verdict I think everyone is happy that this discussion is over as it has been a heated discussion for quite some time.
A Texas group run by a self-described anarchist has posted what appears to be the first video of the live firing of a handgun created with a 3-D printer.
This article is crazy. In the article they talk about a gun that was made by a 3-D printer except for the firing pin. Whether or not the gun is powerful and accurate has yet to be determined. Either way they made a gun from a printer and that has never been done. This will be interesting with all the talk about gun laws. What do you do if people start to make their own guns?
I found this article very interesting because it questions the decision making of our Nation's largest court. It seems that our current court has been very generous to businesses. In fact the article states that the current court is the most business friendly court since World War II. I would like to know the court’s reasoning behind the refusal to see these cases. It seems unfair to the citizens that the Supreme Court is providing so much protection to businesses.
I think this will be an excellent bill for our state. I feel our country is falling behind in education and this is a good step to getting back to the top. The all day kindergarten will be essential in developing students at younger ages. Education is very important and it is good to see our state is taking it very seriously.
The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday overwhelmingly approved a Senate plan to ease nationwide air traffic delays caused by automatic federal spending cuts, seeking to calm an irritated traveling public as lawmakers themselves flew out of...
I found this article very interesting because last week I read an article about the long flight delays caused by automatic federal spending cuts. It looks like the House approved the bill with 361 voting in favor of the bill compared to 41. The new plan gives the Department of Transportation flexibility to use unspent funds to cover costs of air traffic controllers and other employees. Now the bill has to be signed by Obama.
Flights coming into to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and La Guardia Airports were delayed up to 70 minutes on Sunday night, due to a labor crunch in air traffic controllers forced to take unpaid time off.
On Monday afternoon, all three New York City-area airports experienced delays. This has to do with the forced federal spending cuts. The cuts have resulted in fewer air traffic controllers because they were forced to take unpaid time off. This is unfortunate because not only does this affect the jobs of these people but it also affects everyday flights for thousands of passengers.
Awakening in a friend's bedroom after drinking too much at a sleepover, 15-year-old Audrie Pott looked down and realized she had been sexually assaulted and her attackers had written and drawn on intimate parts of her body, her family's attorney...
This article is absolutely disgusting. Three boys sexually assaulted a 15 year old girl after she passed out from drinking to much. After they assaulted her they made markings all over her body. In the following days she realized there was a very innapropriate picture of her that was circulating throughout the school. Eight days after the attack, the girl hung herself because she could no longer take the embarrassement and ridicule. The parents of the daughter want the boys to be tried as adults but that is very uncommon in California. It will be very interesting to see how the whole situation unravels in the court.
The Senate could vote as early as Tuesday on expanded background checks for gun buyers — a centerpiece of broad gun legislation — but leading lawmakers said Sunday that approval of the measure remained uncertain.
According to this article the senate is on the verge of voting on expanded background checks for gun buyers. This new bill involves the second amendment. The new law would prevent buyers from avoiding background checks by purchasing guns at gun shows and over the internet. I think this gun bill is a good idea because it is not taking guns away from everyone just the people with criminal records.
South Korea's government said North Korea may test a missile about April 10, citing Pyongyang's push for workers to leave the Kaesong Industrial Complex.
This article is very interesting and very important. According to the article, the tensions between North Korea and South Korea are rapidly rising. South Korea believes a missile test by North Korea is in the near future. The threats are not a huge deal to the United States, but if they were to attack South Korea our government would definitely be affected. We are allies with South Korea and there are many U.S citizens that live in South Korea. If an attack did occur, our government would definitely get involved. An attack on South Korea would have a major effect on the stock market which would affect our government as well as our country as a whole.
"Save me!" a man's voice cries out in the darkness. "Please save me!"
This article is crazy! A girl named Reshma was trapped under all of the rubble from the building that collapsed in Bangladesh. She was buried underneath all of the rubble for 17 long, dark days. She did not know if she was alive or dead and did nothing for 17 days besides crawl and sleep. I can't even imagine what it would be like being buried for 17 days!
Missing Cleveland teenagers Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus have been found, police say.
This article is very interesting and is also one of the few articles that is about good news. Two girls Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were found alive today in a west side house. The neighbor heard the girls screaming and trying to get outside, and that's when he called the cops. Berry was last seen in 2003 and DeJesus in 2004. The police have one suspect in custody. This is such a wonderful story because after all of those years their families assumed their were gone for good.
There may not be a single cemetery in Massachusetts or in the U.S. that is willing to be Tamerlan Tsarnaev's final resting place, a funeral director said Monday
This article is very interesting because it involves one of the Boston Bombers. The funeral director in the article claims they cannot find anyone who is willing to take the body. He says cemeteries don't want to take him because they don't want to offend people who have relatives buried there as well as future customers. It will be very interesting to see if he is buried in the U.S. or if he will be sent over seas.
It is amazing the dumb stuff political figures will put on social media sites. It seems they don't realize that other people will see it. Even if he did think this why not just keep it to himself? Torture may be the only way to get him to talk but that doesn't mean that you have to tweet about it.
This article is very interesting because it involves constitutional rights. I do not think this so called "Truth Serum" works but if it did I do think it violates constitutional rights. However, in situations like this I believe his constitutional rights are not as important because of his actions.
Nearly 26 million Americans may be eligible for subsidies to buy health insurance under Obamacare. But few know they could qualify for help.
This story focuses on Obamacare. The article states that nearly 26 million Americans could be eligible for health insurance subsidies next year, but most do not know it. The families that will be able to claim the subsidies are the working families with annual earnings between $47,100 and $94,200.
Buried within the 844 pages of the bipartisan immigration bill -- amid historic shifts in policies such as a path to citizenship for 11 million unauthorized immigrants -- are pet provisions of the senators who crafted it.
I found this article extremely interesting because Democrats and Republicans both added little segments to the new immigration bill. This article shows that new laws can be hidden in massive bills without the American people knowing about it. The Democrats and Republicans each added segments that will directly benefit their own states. It is very frustrating knowing they try to sneak these laws in for their own benefit.
Washington (CNN) -- The bomb attacks at the finish line of Monday's Boston Marathon were a "heinous and cowardly act" that the FBI is investigating as an act of terrorism, President Barack Obama said Tuesday.
This article is about the bombings at the Boston Marathon and how Obama called the attack an "act of terror". I was surprised that he didn't originally refer to it as an act of terror. In the article they said they did not have any hard evidence yet but they will stop at nothing until they do. It will be very interesting to see who caused these explosions and what their motive was.
This is a very interesting article because it relates to everyone. The bill they are trying to pass would require the government to obtain a search warrant before accessing emails. This seems like a much needed bill because nowadays people store a lot of private information electronically. However, I do believe at times it is necessary for the government to access certain emails. By passing this bill the government will still be able to access important emails but first they will need to obtain a search warrant.
Republican North Carolina state legislators have proposed allowing an official state religion in a measure that would declare the state exempt from the Constitution and court rulings.
This article is about how Republican state legislators in North Carolina want an official state religion to be allowed. The article relates directly to Government and law because the legislators want the proposed state religion to be exempt from the Constitution and court rulings. The Republicans claim that courts cannot block a state “’from making laws respecting an establishment of religion.’” This article is very interesting because it involves religion. It shows laws are constantly being challenged and changed. It will be interesting to see if the bill is passed and if the actions taken by North Carolina will be mimicked by other states.
