Because freedom can't protect itself
Hey at least our new president is fixing the problem what can we do, they need to charge G. W. Bush with a crime.
Because he got away with anything he wanted to.. and did not give proof of his actions.
The ACLU needs to start protecting the second amendment as much as it claims to protect the rest of the Constitution. The Bill Of Rights is NOT multiple choice. Either defend all 10 amendments or be one of the largest groups of hypocrites in the world. The choice is not hard!
What most of you should realize is that bending the law to suit whatever situation you may encounter is equally wrong. Bush, in my opinion was without a backbone, soft on any situation that happened during his administration. Having him in the White House beats anyone that lies to get into the same position(Clinton, Gore).
You should read up on why the US can legally detain ANYONE that is suspected of threats against the US as long as it is not on our soil. If the enemy combatants or detainees are on US soil, they do have rights just as we do but they are NOT on US soil, therefore they have no rights under US law...
In Texas education at college level, Title IX has done 2 things. One situation in which it has benefitted is getting women sports scholarships to assist in a higher education. I applaud this if it means the women will then be a part of the working class, contributing to the betterment of society. The drawback to this, the male gender no longer has those same scholarships to get a higher education. In Texas, division one men's soccer has been all but eliminated. SMU is the ONLY Div. 1 college with men's soccer. My son grew up dreaming of one day playing soccer for UT or TCU, wanting to stay close to home. He had to settle for Div 3 school that does NOT offer athletic scholarships which has put a tremendous burden on us.
The male gender is taught from day one to honor, respect and to take care of his wife and family. At least thats what every male from my parents generation was taught and I have taught my 2 sons. How can anyone honestly think that taking away a male scholarship will help any male be a better member of society? There are times when the female gender needs help, but not at the expense of the other gender. Repeal Title IX before the entire male gender has been eliminated from society. I believe both men and women built this country. Don't take away all male rights to appease a few women.
