Introduction

In my Scoop.it i used 4 amendments that i though were most important and most used in the world. Those 4 are , the first amendment " Protects the freedom of religion, speech, and the press, as well as the right to assemble and petition the goverment." My next amendment was the Fourth amendment " Prohibits unreasnable seaches and seizures and sets out requirments for search warrants based on probable causes. Also the Eight amendment " Prohibits exesssive fines and excessive bail as well as cruel and unusual pushishments." and the 16th amendment " allows the federal goverment to collect income taxes".

CNN.com - Is capital punishment too harsh for rapists? - Sep. 12, 2003

Analysis: The Eight Amendment prohibits cruel and unusual punishments. well in the Louisana they think differently. Patrick O. Kennedy was sentenced to death for the rape of an 8-year-old child. Now they are arguing between are they bring to harsh by sentencing him to death? they gave him a choice of death on the one hand and life imprisonment on the other. In my opinion i think that he shouldnt be sentenced to death because that is to harsh of a punishment, yes he did a horrible thing by raping a young girl, but he didnt kill her or murder her. He should get inprisioned for like 25 years but no life.

CNN.com - Justices question use of police roadblocks - Nov. 5, 2003

Analysis: In this article they state information in the use of the Fourth Amendment. it is stating that police take advantage of this amendment because we have the right that " Prohibits unreasonable seaches and seizures" then why are police allowed to stop someone and arrest or ask about unrelative crimes. An example used is a man named Robert Lidster, Police claim his car nearly struck officers and that his breath
smelled of alcohol. He was ordered to pull over, and after undergoing sobriety
tests, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. I agree with the people, police take advantage of your rights and arrest you with no suspition.

CNN.com - The really unfair tax - Jan. 27, 2003

Analysis: In Amendment Nine , they state that the federal goverment is allowed to collect income taxes , but this is just way to much. Taxes are doubled, even tripled. Think of it this way an income of $60,000, out of that, $3,720 is deducted from its paychecks for Social Security taxes, and an additional $870 is taken out for the Medicare tax. That's $4,590 that the family never sees. I disagress with this, taxes shouldnt be that much and if we need something like social security and medicare then why do we pay half of our bill for it. its unfair to us to pay all this taxes for something we cant even argue on.

Are whites racially oppressed?

Are whites racially oppressed? | Our History , Our Future! | Scoop.it

Analysis: If the First Amendment states that we have the right to Freedom of Speech , sometimes that speech might be taken overbored.  In this article, Whites arent in control anymore , but some whites think they are , just like in this article a bunch of whites are created groups and excuding black and other racial groups. They say that schools are offering more scolerships to white people then colored. In the fox talk show the host Glenn Bleck marched on washington calling the president a "deep-seated hatred for white people and white culture." he later did regreted this comment. Most people think the reason of most of this cause if when we got the first African American president. The Autor of a book called Tim Wise said Many white Americans have lived under the assumption that if they worked hard, they would be rewarded. Now more white Americans are sharing unemployment lines with "those people" (black and brown). Whites are getting mad that they are on the same level as other people so they are excuding cultures out of there lives and community. I disagree with this because we are all equal, doesnt matter our skin color or ethnicity.

Why kids need recess and exercise | Our History , Our Future! | Scoop.it

Analysis: When your little you love school because of recess , but now they dont have recess anymore, teachers think it is better for kids to just learn and no recess. well mothers think differently, they use the either amendment to prove it. kids only get 22 minutes of quiet lunch and the rest of the just work. kids go home exausted and parents arent liking it. I agreee with the mothers because kids need recess to take a break and a breather for learning all day.

The Volokh Conspiracy » Court Rules That Police Cannot Use Warrants to Obtain Cell Phone Location of Person Who is Subject of Arrest Warrant | Our History , Our Future! | Scoop.it

Analysis: The Fourth Amendment, the amendment that protects the rights of our privicy. well police dont think that, they will knock on your door check your house without a warrant. In this article they are checking with the court against weither they need a warrent to obtain cellphone location on a person who is subjected of a arrest warrant. The court ruled that there should be a warrant for the use of the phone because it is a persons personal information, meanwhile lots of people think the court is wrong. I agree with the court because it is our right and we cant take advantage of it and track down a person threw looking and getting infor of there phones.

CNN.com - U.S. finds religious freedom threatened worldwide - May 3, 2006

Analysis: In this article , we are talking about the rights of the people in iraq. In the first amendment they state that people have freedom of religo. Meanwhile in Iraq it is different. Two Afghan man faced possible execution as punishment for abandoning Islam to convert to Christianity. This is unfair because they have the right to convert and be what ever religon they want to because it is the right of the people. Now there is riots and violence in Iraq toward the two religons. I disagree with this , if they want to be Christian or Muslum they can be that. it is there opinion, life and right.

Time to raise taxes on the rich - CNN.com

Time to raise taxes on the rich - CNN.com | Our History , Our Future! | Scoop.it

Analysis: Since Amendment Nine states that they can collect income taxes, how come they collect the same amount on someone who gets more then someone else. If the person has more money they should get taxed more. Over the last year 46.2% of Americans live in poverty. Also out of $528 billion was the income. $7 billion went to wages and salaries. But 88% of the brief recovery went to corporate profits and just 1% went to the workers. This artical is stating that "Enough is Enough" giving more money to the riches is not getting us no where and is not giving more jobs. I agress with this statement because they get more money and have the better income so why should they pay the same amount as someone getting less then them. The president stated that we should higher the taxes on the riches and lower on the poor. like it was stated on the article " Why we should continue to let working Americans suffer while helping the super-rich get richer?".
