1st Amendment Rigths - 1,006 words
Albert Einstein was a famous scientist, writer and professor. He was born in Ulm, Germany, on March 24,1879. As a child, Einstein wasn't like the other boys: he hated school but loved math. He was shy, and talked very slowly. He didn't participate in sports but instead played with mechanical toys, put together jigsaw puzzles, built towers and studied nature. At school and home he would ask many questions and because of that everybody thought he was dumb. Once when he was sick in bed, his father Herman, bought him a compass; and Albert asked "Why does the needle point to the north?" His father didn't know the answer. Herman was calm, friendly and had a black mustache. Einstein also had a brot ...

The 1st Amendment And Our Rights - 732 words
Freedom of Speech, freedom of expression, both oral and written, from governmental prior restraint, except as such expression constitutes libel, slander, obscenity, sedition, or criminal conduct such as bribery, perjury, or incitement to riot. In the U.S., this freedom is protected by the 1st Amendment of the Constitution. At the core of 1st Amendment concerns is the protection of expression that is critical of government policies. Also, if the people of the government think censoring American sites from having "vulgar" material on them, what happens when this child goes to a site that either has a nice sounding name that they don't think to block because it does not sound incriminating. If ...

Benefits Of Having The First (1st) Amendment - 486 words
The First Amendment protects the five basic freedoms that are essential to the American way of life. These freedoms are: speech, press, assembly, petition, and religion. Freedom of speech allows you to say what is on your mind, in public or private places, with out fear of getting punished. But you cannot commit slander or treason. Slander is when some one lies about another person in order to hurt their reputation. Treason is when somebody gives military secrets to enemies of the U.S. (any thing to endanger our government). Freedom of press allows people to express them selves in print such as books, newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and computer net works. Freedom of assembly prote ...

Gray Race - 734 words
A lot of people today are prejudice. Most think of this as being racist. In addition, it's making decisions on the basis of age, gender, or other features not facts. People who are prejudice can lower others self-esteem, cause discrimination, and it can lead to violence. Prejudice lowers self esteem and hurts people mentally. Can you imagine being handicapped or having a disability? Now try to imagine applying for a job or being treated the same as someone with a disability. We have come a long way with accepting handicaps in the world, but there is still a set back. Sure, they have special parking places, and can go shopping and spend money, but what about when they apply for a job. They ge ...

Bill Of Bs And Some Amendments Too - 407 words
Home of the brave, and land of the free is it quite that simple? I think not. First of all, who ever came up with that phrase was obviously a Republican and obviously insane (same thing right?). My point is, even though we have all these freedoms and privileges, if we cant defend them on an every day bases they might as well not exist at all. People have fought and died just so that we can walk down the street and not worry about being harassed by an overly powerful government. One of my favorite rights (which has caused me quite a bit of trouble lately) is the fourth Amendment. It was no longer ago than this past Friday that I took a stand and secured my rights. True there are consequences ...

Roe Vs Wade - 1,703 words
Roe v Wade is undoubtedly one of the Supreme Court's most controversial decisions. Handed down in January of 1973, the Court declared, by a vote of 7 to 2, that abortion was a right guaranteed by the Constitution under an implied Justice Harry Blackmun, the author of the majority opinion, stated that the Constitution does not explicitly mention a right to privacy but, "in varying contexts the Court or individual justices have, indeed, found at least the roots of that right." The right to an abortion was then considered an extension of this privacy right. As Blackmun stated,"This right of privacy, whether it be founded in the Fourteenth Amendment's concept of personal liberty and restrictions ...

Desecration Of Stars And Stripes - 1,387 words
... merican public stand? Various polls indicate that 70%-80% are in favor of the proposed amendment (Citizen's Flag Alliance). However, when informed as to the first Amendment implications of such an amendment, poll show that American opinions are more swayed and split their opinions at nearly 50% (Fullwood). The main argument for the Flag Desecration Amendment is that the American flag is not just another piece of cloth (Citizen's Flag Alliance). The flag is proclaimed by supporters to be a venerated object worthy of legal protection. Los Angeles Dodgers general manager Tommy Lasorda is one of the foremost activists in favor of the proposed Flag Desecration Amendment. Lasorda testified tha ...

Mueller V Allen - 343 words
Did the government violate the Establishment Clause because they provided monetary support to the parents of all school-goers? The 1st Amendment states that the Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. In 1983, case of Mueller v. Allen, made a few changes in the way the federal government helped out the children in schools. The question in the Mueller case was a Minnesota statute that allowed all parents to deduct tuition, textbook and transportation expenses from their gross income on state tax returns for their children attending elementary and secondary schools. The Minnesota law allowed a tax deduction of up to $500 for ...

Physician Assisted Suicide - 1,987 words
The issue of physician-assisted suicide has come to be one of the most controversial legal issues in recent history. In my opinion I think that the law is designed to lay out guidelines for the social conduct of individuals in society. Yet, within this definition there are extremes on both ends of the spectrum in which the law encompasses. The question of whether or not physicians can legally prescribe and administer lethal doses of medication to mentally competent patients who suffer from the issue of physician-assisted suicide has become a heated topic. Whether or not physicians can legally prescribe and administer lethal doses of medication to mentally competent patients who suffer from u ...

Censorship Of Music - 1,486 words
In today's society, all types of music artists are expressing their views, opinions and feelings in their songs about what they see and what they know. This is on of the great things about this country, the freedom to express yourself. It is not fair, nor is it constitutional that music should be censored in anyway. It is not only rap music trying to be censored it is in all types of music. They are taking away their rights and it isn't fair. As reported in the New York Times. "Wall-Mart CD standards are Changing Pop Music", Wal-Mart and other large department stores sell CD's by your favorite artists which are not what your favorite artists originally created. Some retailers refuse to carry ...

The Constitutional Abuse Of Free Speech - 883 words
Free speech and the abuses that surround it are like wild horses that need to be broken and tamed. The laws that were created to protect free speech were made long ago and in a much different spirit. The days of the American Revolution were filled with political oppression, enforced by British rule. Speaking out against such obvious tyranny meant being crushed under the boot of colonial governors. Free speech was designed to combat these infractions against proper civil liberties. The first amendment provided for free speech to be constructive. In todays society, free speech is a shield for protecting hatred and conspiracies. The common reply of many of todays hate mongers is Its a free coun ...

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

They decided to wear black armbands and fast on December 16 and 31 to express there point. When the principals of the Des Moines School System found out their plans, they decided to suspend anyone who took part in this type of protest.

The Bill Of Rights - 1,157 words
... chooses, and can refuse to approve of Executive appointees to the Supreme Court. At the root of all this structure dictating how the power triangle works, is the fact that no branches of government have power without the approval of the people. If the people are unhappy with the performance of any branch of the government, they are (usually! What a bad voting decade for the Left!) quick to rectify the situation at the next opportunity they have to vote. While they cannot effect the Supreme Court directly, they elect members of Congress who hold the rights impeach justices of the Court, and they elect the President who appoints new members of the Court. Power is not only shared by the 3 ...
