The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. It is the foundation and source of the legal authority underlying the existence of the United States of America and the Federal Government of the United States. It provides the framework for the organization of the United States Government. The document defines the three main branches of the government: The legislative branch with a bicameral Congress, an executive branch led by the President, and a judicial branch headed by the Supreme Court. Besides providing for the organization of these branches, the Constitution outlines obligations of each office, as well as provides what powers each branch may exercise. It also reserves numerous rights for the individual states, thereby establishing the United States' federal system of government. It is the shortest and oldest written constitution of any major sovereign state.

Most people think of history as a subject they were forced to attend in school or some old guy with wooden teeth and a bad wig. There’s stories about governments passing laws and people making grand speeches, but people don’t really have a connection with that nowadays.<br /><br />When you think back to the American Revolution you’re probably not making connections to an episode of Dr. Who that you saw, or how America was like the little brother that got stuck with all the strict rules just because we moved away.<br /><br />History is more than a series of important dates or dry facts that you were forced to memorize for school. With funny anecdotes, witty comparisons, and creative metaphors, Sugar, Stamps & Tea puts the 50 most important events that led to the American Revolution in a unique modern light.

This is a rare book of Southwestern Native Americans Folklore, the Pima, who residents of the deserts of southern Arizona., transcribed by a sympathetic amateur ethnographer at the beginning of the twentieth century. The Pima live in the arid deserts of southern Arizona, and originally survived by horticulture and hunting/gathering. Lloyd was not a linguist, and collected the stories through an interpreter. All of the Pima words and phrases are written using a crude 'phonetic' system, which no doubt is fairly inaccurate. However, this does not invalidate the folklore, which is well-told and consistent with other southwestern Native American mythology, particularly in its repetition of the number four.<br />

一直到19世纪末,伦理学与规范伦理学几乎还是同一概念。l903年摩尔发表《伦理学原理》,宣告了另一种伦理学——元伦理学——的诞生。尔后半个多世纪,元伦理学在西方伦理学领域一直居于主导地位。20世纪60年代以来,脱离规范伦理学而企图独撑伦理学大厦的元伦理学开始走下坡路。代之而起的,一方面是规范伦理学的复兴,另一方面则是否定规范伦理学的美德伦理学的崛起。本教材试图在马克思主义基础上,融会贯通古今中外伦理学成果,从而使相互排斥的元伦理学、规范伦理学和美德伦理学结合起来而成为伦理学体系结构的三部分:元伦理学是关于优良道德制定方法的科学;规范伦理学是关于优良道德制定过程的科学;美德伦理学是关于优良道德实现途径的科学。总之,伦理学是关于优良道德的科学。

The election for the most powerful person on the planet was determined, in part, by memes.<br /><br />The 2016 presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton was the first time both candidates embraced the new media of the internet. The dinosaurs that were the mainstream media found themselves powerless to control the narratives against relentless social media pressures.<br /><br />Yes, those poor quality images that get shared on social media were essential in shaping the future of the world. Don’t believe me? Hillary Clinton herself tried to discredit Pepe, a simple meme.<br /><br />This is Pepe. He’s the star of the book. Hillary Clinton directly called Pepe a hate symbol. Does he look hateful to you?<br />Long, boring statements on policy positions don’t get Liked or shared by millions of people. Memes do. And these memes can spread an idea faster than traditional media. By the time an idea appears on television that evening, the story is already old news in the social space. Newspapers reporting on an event a day or two later look as quaint as a horse and buggy next to a Tesla.<br /><br />Memes are fun, but they can also be propaganda. Seeing a patriotic Donald with the words Make America Great Again can influence decisions just through sheer repetition. Memes can amplify or introduce ideas to millions of people in a short time.<br /><br />Memes can also spread the latest scandals much faster than traditional media. The power of memes is that they can be consumed, felt, and shared within a few seconds. Note that Liking a tweet or post will also share it! In comparison, a traditional TV newscast needs several hours of lead-in time. In 2016, we saw the mainstream media react to news cycles started by social media rather than the reverse. The majority of people now get their news from Facebook or Twitter. And that means anyone can be a journalist. Memes are the new Breaking News update.<br /><br />The trick of spreading memes is that they contain emotion. They can be funny, sad, infuriating, or whatever, but memes that catch on with population are almost always emotional. And Donald Trump is a meme machine. It doesn’t matter if you love or hate him: you will spread his message because he makes you feel. This is why the election was one of the most contentious elections in recent memory. Emotions ran high on all sides.<br /><br />Finally, this book details the bizarre events that you probably didn’t hear about. Hillary Clinton declared war on a cartoon frog. Google, Facebook, and Twitter all modified their platforms to push votes for a candidate. Ted Cruz became the Zodiac Killer. The FBI made a Trump meme. And, of course, Donald Trump was Donald Trump.

Blame 3rd Parties? Blame FBI Director Comey? Blame Russia? <br />How about the liberals look in the mirror and blame themselves for playing “identity politics”. They focus on the individual so-called “rights” of a few and project them on the real rights of the many. And Middle America pays for it. The Coastal Elites label Middle America as “Flyover Country” and too often blame the Hillary Clinton defeat on the “white working class” voter. That term, according to Wikipedia, means: <br />1.You’re white and did not graduate from college.<br />2.You’re considered to be an “uneducated voter” in the polls.<br />Hence, are white billionaires (i.e. Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, Mark Zuckerberg, etc.) considered to be “white working class” because they dropped out of college and became billionaires? Why not? Okay, I get it. Some are Jewish, right? So are they considered to be “Jewish working class” voters?<br />I am 50% Mexican. What do you consider a Mexican doctor or lawyer to be? An educated Latino? (FYI: I hate that term: Latino). Why does the media and pollsters lump me into some sort of homogenous group with an Argentinian or Brazilian who don’t even speak Spanish? We have nothing in common! <br />Tell me who is a: "black working class” voter? I‘ve yet to hear that term. And, on that note, what does a Nigerian cab driver in New York have with a black Chicagoan on the city’s Southside?<br />Macomb County, my county, is considered to be the Home of “The Reagan Democrats”. We are one of “CNN’s 11 critical counties” that the media references on how the presidential election will go in Middle America. <br />We had previously voted for Obama twice. However, in 2016, we went for Trump….like the 200-plus Middle American counties that flipped from Obama-to-Trump. <br />This very detailed and highly researched paperback – filled with mainstream media quotes and political pundits biased reporting and off-target polls – is the only source of information to demonstrate why Trump won and Clinton lost. As a writer, I concur that you should never judge a book by its cover. However, this cover says it all. So…If you DO NOT WANT to know how: <br />•Hillary Clinton never connected to Middle America and her book tour lost millions.<br />•The real issues of the Clinton campaign’s Russian involvement<br />•The Obama Administration’s Goldman Sachs and Press connections<br />•The actual effect FBI Director Comey’s letter on the voters.<br />•The facts how the Clinton’s profited from Keystone Pipeline, Russia, and Wall Street<br />•The total anti-Trump campaign waged by the mainstream media<br />Then, I guess, this book is not for you. This book purposely does not quote conservatives. Therefore, the quotes – in this quick two-hour read – come from Clinton, Obama, Biden, Schumer, Pelosi, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, etc. to directly put the 2016 Election back onto the liberals who spout out allegations like a broken sink faucet; yet, are never taken to task. <br />Well, this book takes them to task and publically calls them out. I will address every “blame game” from the Clinton camp and those that are perpetuated by “finger-pointing” Democrats to spread “fake news”.<br />I hope you enjoy.<br />Daniel David Elles: INDEPENDENT<br /><br />

Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion is a philosophical work by the Scottish philosopher David Hume. Through dialogue, three philosophers named Demea, Philo, and Cleanthes debate the nature of God's existence. Whether or not these names reference specific philosophers, ancient or otherwise, remains a topic of scholarly dispute. While all three agree that a god exists, they differ sharply in opinion on God's nature or attributes and how, or if, humankind can come to knowledge of a deity.

The United States Declaration of Independence is a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, announcing that the thirteen American colonies then at war with Great Britain were no longer a part of the British Empire. Written primarily by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration is a formal explanation of why Congress had voted on July 2 to declare independence from Great Britain, more than a year after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. The birthday of the United States of America—Independence Day—is celebrated on July 4, the day the wording of the Declaration was approved by Congress.
