According to numbers that were just released this week, 49.7 million Americans are living in poverty. That is a brand new all-time record high.
Relative comparisons are less important than absolute values. About seven of those stars on the American flag live in poverty. We should do better than that.
“Since we did not control or have access to this site, we were not aware that these documents were still on the web, much less, were publicly facing,” TigerSwan said. “The resume files in question have now been properly secured and no additional risk of exposure exists.”
Hi, Mr. Swan? I have some bad news for you about how digital copies work…
AP journalists used a boat to document the condition of one flooded Houston-area Superfund site, but accessed others with a vehicle or on foot. The EPA did not respond to questions about why its personnel had not yet been able to do so.
Let that sink in for a moment: A huge collection of botted accounts — the vast majority of which should be easily detectable as such — may be able to abuse Twitter’s anti-abuse tools to temporarily shutter the accounts of real people suspected of being bots!
Don’t worry, I’m sure the hidden mechanics of the device will be completely secure and validated.
The only effective means courts have to prevent or stop governmental violations of constitutional rights is through injunctions. But injunctions have teeth only when they have the potential of a contempt conviction behind them. In other words, in issuing an injunction, a court is saying, “stop doing that or else.” The “or else” is a criminal conviction for contempt, leading to a fine, imprisonment or both. Absent the “or else,” the injunction is all but meaningless.
But if the president signals to government agents that there exists the likelihood of a pardon when they violate a judicial injunction that blocks his policies, he can all too easily circumvent the only effective means of enforcing constitutional restrictions on his behavior. Indeed, the president could even secretly promise a pardon to agents if they undertake illegal activity he desires.
Before you wish that you could collect $1 million by getting framed for Arpaio’s murder, consider that Saville spent four years in county jail, awaiting trial as a result of the made-up crime.
In 1999, Arpaio’s staff rigged the entire fake assassination plot – just so he could get his mug on TV.
