This article is about the man helping Obama with his decisions on foreign policy. That man is Tom Donilon, he has helped Obama make decisions on whether or not to intervene in Syria, dealing with Chinese cyberhacking,  and how to deal with issues dealing with Iran and North Korea. Do you think that the President should be giving this man so much power?

cander05's comment, March 23, 2014 12:02 AM
I think that the president should make his own decisions, as he was the one elected not this other guy non one has heard of.

In response to naknuts37:

This article talks about when voters would cast their votes for one candidate the opposing candidate's name would come up. An example would be a lady chose Romney but Obama came up instead. This created a vote that voters didn't want. Many voters were upset and thought it was some type of conspiracy. It was just a machine error. Were there a lot of machines that were malfunctioning? How long did it take to fix the machines? How many people had a machine that was malfunctioning while casting their votes? Were voters with a machine that wasn't working properly able to recast their vote? 

Lakin's comment, May 9, 2014 12:33 PM
I believe voting should be done by paper cause with technology there always comes glitches. Voting on paper is more efficient because you won't run in with a problem even though it may take longer to do so.

Remaking Federalism to Remake the American Economy

Remaking Federalism to Remake the American Economy | Gov & Law - Michael Hanson | 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.

Whether or not the U.S. should have gotten involved with this Libyan oil crisis or other foreign affairs across the globe is a matter of foreign  policy. In this case, I feel like the US did not have to become involved. I think the US should weigh which foreign affair is really our business and which we should help in.

Breanne Hemann's comment, May 23, 2014 10:29 AM
I think that it was good that we were able to help out Libya without any acts of violence. Not only did this help our country, because oil prices with be reduced but it also helped Libya. I think that in dealing with foreign affairs we should be more careful not to involve ourselves in battles that aren't necessary, but in things like this we should help out more.
Reed Klunder 's comment, May 23, 2014 1:46 PM
I think that we should do things like this more often, we need to help those who need it but not fight their battles. It not only help benefit them but it also benefitted us. This is what the government needs to lean towards. Why try and fight when you can make peace?

Soy-Based Meals Are 'Cruel And Unusual Punishment,' Says Lawsuit From Florida Prisoner Eric Harris | Gov & Law - Michael Hanson | Scoop.it

Florida prisoner Eric Harris, 34, currently serving a life sentence for sexual battery on a child, has filed a lawsuit that claims serving soy-laden meals to inmates is a form of cruel and unusual punishment.

 

The 8th Amendment was violated in a Florida prison by forcing inmates to eat soy-based products. Eric Harris claims that the soy is a danger to his health and is cruel and unusual punishment. Florida has been using soy products since 2009 in an effort to cut costs. While it is an economically savy plan, it is devasting to the health of the thousands of prisoners. It is also in violation of the 8th amendment.

Obamacare on Trial - Patriot Post

Obamacare on Trial - Patriot Post | Gov & Law - Michael Hanson | Scoop.it

Nine Justices will decide the fate of ObamaCare

 

Fundamental to our system of governance is the concept of federalism -- the division of power between the federal government and the states. Cemented in the Constitution, this concept provides the federal government with only certain, specific ("enumerated") powers, while the states hold all other powers of governance over the individual. This division, along with separation of the federal powers into executive, legislative and judicial branches of government, is the bedrock that secures individual liberty in the U.S.

 

Although federalism has eroded significantly in the last century, it faces its most serious threat via the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare. This week the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) heard six hours of oral arguments over three days -- the longest amount of time allotted in almost half a century -- and a record-setting 130 amicus briefs in cases consolidated under the title, Department of Health and Human Services, et al., vs. State of Florida, et al., which challenge the constitutionality of the law.

This article is about Obamacare and the strong opposition it faced for it to get through the Supreme Court. This relates to government and law, because it had to get through the supreme court and it tested the sometimes blurred line that federalism creates between the state and national government, which was displayed by the six hours of oral argument over Obabmacare.

Abigail Beinborn's curator insight, April 28, 2014 8:30 PM

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. 

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.
