Top sentiment analyzed: 70% : “That is to say, the fathers in Congress assembled in Philadelphia on the 4th of July, 1776, proclaimed over the whole earth that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and that taxation without representation is tyranny, and for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, they mutually pledged to each other their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor; and yet we are told today that the women of these states have no right to vote until the men, who alone have been in the habit of voting, shall make some new and special laws to meet their case; in other words, till men shall grant women a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
Although the First Amendment’s Free Speech Clause limits government regulation of private speech, it does not restrict the government when the government speaks for itself. For example, if the government allows private groups to hold rallies in a public park, it may not exclude a white supremacist rally solely because it disagrees with the rally’s message. See Forums. The city is not, however, required to include the white supremacists’ message when it holds diversity programs at its schools. This doctrine does not allow the government to ignore other parts of the Constitution. For example, even though government speech is not regulated by the Free Speech Clause, it is still subject to the Establishment Clause.
It is not always clear when the government is speaking for itself instead of unconstitutionally restricting others’ speech. For example, the Supreme Court said that when the government funds family-planning programs, it may forbid healthcare providers

In the United States, courts exist on both the federal and state levels.
The United States Supreme Court is the highest court in the United States. Lower courts on the federal level include the US Courts of Appeals, US District Courts, the US Court of Claims, and the US Court of International Trade and US Bankruptcy Courts. Federal courts hear cases involving matters related to the United States Constitution, other federal laws and regulations, and certain matters that involve parties from different states or countries and large sums of money in dispute.
Each state has its own judicial system that includes trial and appellate courts. The highest court in each state is often referred to as the “supreme” court, although there are some exceptions to this rule, for example, the New York Court of Appeals or the Maryland Court of Appeals. State courts generally hear cases involving state constitutional matters,

While Mr. Zhou is Mr. Xi’s biggest and most recent target, just a month earlier, on June 30, Gen. Xu Caihou, formerly the most powerful figure in the People’s Liberation Army, was handed over to prosecutors to face charges of corruption. Only now, with both men officially destroyed, can Mr. Xi safely say that he is in control of a system where power still flows from the barrel of a gun.
General Xu will probably be courtmartialed for bribes allegedly received in exchange for promotions, and Mr. Zhou will be tried in connection with the massive empire that his relatives built on the back of inside oil deals. But behind closed doors, they may also be accused of political transgressions like conspiring to protect the first Politburo “tiger” who was in Mr. Xi’s sites: the former Chongqing party boss Bo Xilai, whose rising political power was seen as a threat

War is a game mechanic in which two nations’ militaries are pitted against each other. As nation leader, you have control over your nation’s military, and must decide what units to build, what battles to execute, and what your overall war strategy is. This manual covers the details of how war mechanics work, and provides insights into the different units, battles, and facets of war.
Resistance and Military Action PointsEdit
Wars are based on a system called Resistance. Each side starts the war with 100 resistance and resistance is reduced through every attack or increased through a specific action. The nation that reduces the opponent’s resistance to zero wins the war and the nation that loses gets “beiged”.To
Government in the United States consists of three separate levels: the federal government, the state governments, and local governments. The Constitution, the fundamental legal authority for government in the United States, gives the federal government the power to undertake certain tasks – and assigns all other powers to the state governments. State governments each establish the local governments within their territory and delegate certain powers to them.
Each level of government is divided into three branches: the legislative branch (which makes the laws), the executive branch (which carries out the laws), and the judicial branch (which applies the laws to specific court cases, determines whether someone has broken the law, and evaluates laws to make certain that they are legitimate).
The following web pages provide additional information about the three levels of government in the United States:
National Government – the “United States Government” or the “Federal Government”
Compared to the private sector, the public sector faces unique usability challenges. At our usability conferences, for example, participants often ask why government agencies should even care about usability. After all, private companies are typically compelled by the realities of profit making; they embrace usability to increase their customer-conversion rates and improve their marketing. Government entities, however, don’t have such profit-oriented motivations.
So why should government agencies care about usability? The answer is that usability’s return on investment (ROI) can be realized outside the realms of sales and profit. If taxpayers are already funding an agency’s mission, diverting a tiny fraction of that funding to improve usability will improve overall agency performance — a desirable outcome. Thus, any time a government organization’s mission includes interacting with the public or disseminating information, website usability can easily be justified.
For government intranets, the answer is even easier: projects that increase civil servants’
