Chelsie DeBus's insight:

This article talks about how the President of the United States, President Obama can raise the minimum wage with using his executive power that the Presidents are granted with. Barack Obama waisted the minimum wage for contractor services to $10.10.  This relates to government and law because it is our own United States President that raised the minimum wage and how he has the privilege to do that.

I am curious to see the effects of the new minimum wage but there are bad things that could happen as well
Katie Gilbertson's comment, May 24, 2014 9:23 PM
Yes I agree with aly and wonder what the effects of the minimum wage increase will have on society, especially since the raise is only going to certain public officials. I think that it could end badly and that it's not fair to raise it for only certain people.

It seems strange to me that the Supreme Court doesn't want citizenship proof, however the only state that seems to have attempted it was Arizona. Perhaps they didn't want other states following suite since it's our right to vote and the proof would make things more tedious for everyone.

This article relates to government and law because it is our own government that put these tests into play. 

Katie Gilbertson's comment, May 18, 2014 2:18 AM
To some extent, I think standardized tests are good for people, not just students, because it does set the common line where people are either ahead or falling behind. These type of tests can be used for schooling or even in the workplace. However, I think that sometimes people go overboard with the whole testing thing because everyone has different skills and talents that might not be able to be shown through a piece of a paper.

2014- Week 5

 

The President made his annual State of the Union address and with it came many promises. Obama promised to raise minimum wage for federal government employees, to create a new tax-free savings bond, to work to close Guantanamo Bay, and to push for immigration reform. The most shocking of his promises was his promise to bypass legislature whenever possible. After a very dysfunctional year for the US government this speech seems to be a sign that things will be getting better. After the government shutdown it is likely that there will be more cooperation between various parts of the government in order to keep that from happening again. 

 

I hope to see President follow through with his promises in 2014. The government shutdown seemed to be an eye opener and will hopefully lead to more government cooperation. It is crucial that the United States government work together to get the country back on track.

Katie Gilbertson's comment, March 29, 2014 4:17 PM
I believe he should follow through with his plans but I think people forget he's not the only one that runs this country. There are many roadblocks and obstacles to overcome. Don't make promises you can't keep but don't hold this country's problems on one person! There are so many people who are able to make a change and do you see them stepping up to the plate? The answer is no.

This article talks about Massachusetts calling the government to expain the search and serizures better to Watertown on April 19, 2013. It is actually the national lawyers of Maasachusetts that are trying to explain the constutional basis of searches and serizures. This article relates to government and law because it is our own constution that people are not understsnding to the fullest.

what do they search for?

Alyssa Serrano's comment, April 12, 2014 10:14 AM
I think the officers should be punished because it is not fair for them to search and/or sieze without a warrant.

It seems clear that the police officer violated the 4th amendment so he should be punished

This article talks about that illegal immigration is rising in the United States.  This articles says why they think this is happening is because our ecomnomy isn't stable so people are trying to become Americans with illegal visas before the economy goes to be stable again. This relates to government and law because it talks about our country having a high number in illegal immigrations.

Crazy that there are so many people in our country illegally. It's great that some people actually do help our country but some illegals also hurt it as well. Our government needs to step up and figure out our immigration problem.
Andrew Beighley's comment, May 18, 2014 8:08 PM
This article is about how illegal immigration affects the US. The number of illegal immigrants is rising every year, and something needs to be done to stop it. The reason many of these people come here illegally is because they want a better future, but they don't want to have to wait for years to get it.

There are too many people that are getting into our country illegally and it needs to be controlled. We need to lock down borders and allow easier legal immigration. We would love to and need to have immigrants in our country but they need to become immigrants legally. Our government should make this top priority.

U.S. Supreme Court puts gay marriage in Utah on hold

U.S. Supreme Court puts gay marriage in Utah on hold | Gov & Law -Chelsie DeBus | Scoop.it
The U.S. Supreme Court put a temporary stop to gay marriages in Utah on Monday while the state appeals a decision that had allowed more than 900 couples to tie the knot.

This article talks about Utah making same sex marriage legal. They had over 900 different couples get married and shortly after they are telling the couples if they will be able to stay being in a gay marriage. This article relates to government  and law because it is our own Supreme Court that has to make the 2nd  final answer to if Utah will keep same sex marriage legal in their state.

2014- Week 2

 

On December 20, 2013 the state of Utah finally legalized gay marriage. In the two weeks following this decision more than 900 same-sex couples were married. Shortly after, the US Supreme Court issued a stay blocking any same sex marriage until the case is heard later this winter. It is not clear what will happen to those 900 couples that were already married and for now they are in a state of limbo. Many couples were confident that the stay would not happen and are now being forced to reevaluate their plans for the future.

 

I find it hard to believe that same sex marriage still isn’t legal across the entire country. It seems extremely unfair and almost cruel to put these couples in such a tricky situation. They allowed over 900 couples to get married and then almost immediately after they were told that their marriages are no longer legitimate until the case is heard for a second time. I am interested to see what the state of Utah will do in the next few months with this case. If they decide to make gay marriage illegal again after allowing all of these couples to get married I feel like there is potential for an uprising.

Why do they put it on hold?

Katie Gilbertson's comment, March 29, 2014 4:14 PM
Okay you shouldn't just change your mind because it turns out there were more homosexual people living in your state and wanting to get married. Who wouldn't want to get married after it was legalized they've been waiting forever to tie the knot and now you're questioning yourselves? They should have thought about all options and therefore consequences before they made it legal.
