Why More Americans Are Renouncing U.S. Citizenship

Why More Americans Are Renouncing U.S. Citizenship | Gov and law lucas | Scoop.it
A U.S. law aimed at tax cheats hiding money abroad has had unintended consequences and has complicated life for many Americans living overseas.
Lucas DeCook's insight:

I think this is crazy that the government isn't doing anything about this.  they should realize that they need to change regulation because people are giving up everything and leaving.  Taxes are outrageous in the US and people are obviously frustrated with that.

I fully agree, the idea of politicians not representing all Americans and just cut there loses really is a hard idea to get my head wrapped around. The government really needs to do something about the taxes at least for those Americans overseas.

Lucas DeCook's insight:

I am glad that this does not happen in our country as often as it does in others.  I think it is crazy that a person could take a life of another human being just to make a political statement.

Workers' lawsuit over government shutdown gains steam - Fortune Management

Workers' lawsuit over government shutdown gains steam - Fortune Management | Gov and law lucas | Scoop.it
Employees who worked during the shutdown say they should get at least minimum wage and overtime on their regularly scheduled paydays.
Lucas DeCook's insight:

I think that it is ridiculous that the workers that had to work during this shutdown did not get paid.right away.  I think that they should get extra money or benefits for their troubles.

Yea I think they definitely deserve their pay for those forced days of labor. It isn't their fault that the government shut down, so why should they have to suffer for it?
Sean Prouty's comment, February 11, 2014 11:42 AM
I agree with you Lucas. I feel that if you are working hard at your job no matter what you should get paid

Armstrong Williams - Just Ignore Our Constitution, Mr. President

Armstrong Williams - Just Ignore Our Constitution, Mr. President | Gov and law lucas | Scoop.it
One of our greatest achievements in the founding of our beloved America was the execution of our framers constructing two very essential aspects of the U.S. Constitution, that being both the concepts of federalism and the division of powers.
Lucas DeCook's insight:

I don't think that the president should be able to bypass congress like this. I think that the constitution is something that shouldn't be messed with without absolutely everyone agreeing on the subject at matter.

UPS Expands Alternative-Fuel Fleet 32% With 1,000 Propane Trucks

UPS Expands Alternative-Fuel Fleet 32% With 1,000 Propane Trucks | Gov and law lucas | Scoop.it
United Parcel Service Inc. said it will spend $70 million to buy 1,000 delivery trucks powered by propane and build 50 fueling stations as it expands one of the largest private alternative-energy fleets in the U.S.
Lucas DeCook's insight:

I think this is a very good idea for UPS to switch their vehicles to propane.  I think that if a big business like that changed their trucks over to propane that the gas stations could afford to start putting up refueling stations and then the public could start using this alternative fuel. if the public used this fuel then they could save tons of money and also extend the life of their engines.

I agree Lucas. ups trucks are always driving so by switching them to propane could help save gas and could in the future lower gas prices.

World's most wanted drug lord could be extradited to United States - Telegraph

World's most wanted drug lord could be extradited to United States - Telegraph | Gov and law lucas | Scoop.it
US politicians fear Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, the notorious drug kingpin, could escape from a Mexican jail and want to hold him in a "super-max" prison
Lucas DeCook's insight:

The idea of bringing a "drug lord" into the United States is a little scarey, especially when it is the biggest one in the world.  It might mean war, but it might also bring peace.  If he is held tight enough then he wont be able to traffic a bunch of drugs into the US.  But if he tries to escape then that will be a huge fight where many could die.  If he does escape he will probably not like the US because we tried to keep him, so he will probably cause troubles then too.

I agree Lucas. if we are going to bring this guy into the US we need to put a tight lock on him and make sure there is no way out.
Shemar Odell's comment, March 5, 2014 10:51 AM
Bringing him to the United States is probably a good idea especially considering he's previously escaped from Mexican prison before.
MsHaeussinger's comment, March 9, 2014 10:43 AM
Mexico has a strong history of corruption in its courts and prisons. To guarantee this man will never again be able to run a cartel, US prosecutors are seeking extradition.

Children murdered, homes foreclosed: How the government makes “mistakes” with impunity

Children murdered, homes foreclosed: How the government makes “mistakes” with impunity | Gov and law lucas | Scoop.it
If life-altering mistakes don’t warrant accountability, maybe that’s because nothing can
Lucas DeCook's insight:

This article shows the power that the us government has.  This person that is talked about in this article was stripped from all of her rights and thrown out of this country for no real reason.   She was denied a case and was not allowed back in.  I believe that she should have been able to fight for her rights before she got them taken away.

Airline passengers in dark about rights, advocate says

Airline passengers in dark about rights, advocate says | Gov and law lucas | Scoop.it
As stories of frustrated and weary airline passengers spread due to a combination of crowded flights and exceedingly bad weather, it appears many don't know much about what rights they can demand of the airline that left them stranded.
Lucas DeCook's insight:

Airline riders that have hit weather delays and layovers have been thrown around because they don't know their rights.  The airline companies are not telling the passengers about the rights because it saves them money and time.
