One of the basic comforts in life is having a solid roof over your head. Unfortunately, securing a safe place to live is more difficult for some due to financial struggles. To help those with individuals, certain programs have been put into place that not only provide easier access to safe living conditions, but also […]
Taking a vehicle out on the open road means different things for different people. For some, heading out for a drive is a form of recreation. For others, a vehicle is necessary to get to work or, in the case of professional drivers, work itself. Just like there are many types of driving, there are […]
One of the mains goals of the U.S. legal system is to treat everyone with fairness and equality. Unfortunately, several factors can impact this goal, resulting in a less-than-fair situation. One of these scenarios can involve a biased or unfair judge. While this may seem like a problem that is out of your hands, there […]
From blasting music late at night to something as simply frustrating as not cleaning out the lint trap in the laundry room, living with a bad neighbor or two while living in an apartment complex is certainly difficult. Dealing with a landlord or rental company that is actively violating your rights as a tenant, however, […]
During the rally immediately before the Capitol Hill riots, Giuliani said, “If we’re wrong, we will be made fools of, but if we’re right, a lot of them will go to jail. So let’s have trial by combat!” And who could have possibly thought those words just might get Giuliani disbarred? Any sane person, actually. […]
Let me recap this roller-coaster that’s been the last week for you real quick. Ready? Trump tries to get Pence to overturn certification, Pence nopes the F out so Trump incites a mob, mob storms capital, Giuliani is facing being disbarred for his comments at the speech, Trump debates pardoning himself, Trump gets impeached a […]
Another bill Trump refuses to pay. Who could have ever possibly predicted or seen this coming? (That’s sarcasm.) But, then again, I suppose former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani didn’t see it coming… somehow. Giuliani spent the past few months traveling across the country on behalf of Trump. He’s filed suits with the Supreme Court […]
The House voted last week (Wends Jan 13th) to impeach Trump. Making him the first president in history to have the, uh, antithesis-of-honor of being impeached a second time. If you’re not familiar with how impeachment works, the articles of impeachment now go to the Senate for the Senate to debate. However, Majority Leader Mitch […]
In a statement where Trump chastises the rioters he so whole-heartedly incited, called “special”, and said he loved the night before, Trump hints that he plans on running again in 2024. Wow… this just keeps going. Here’s the short version of what Trump said; “While this represents the end of the greatest first term in […]
If you think that Trump doesn’t deserved to be impeached, barred from holding office ever again, and charged with – bare minimum – inciting domestic terrorism, I have a number for you: 6,200. That’s roughly the number of nuclear missiles Trump has access to launch pretty much whenever he damn well decides he wants to. […]
We already covered why the lynch-mob style crowd marched on Capitol Hill, but what actually happened during the riot at the Capitol? Well, quite a bit, actually. So much that America – once again – is front-page news in other countries. Getting public criticism that, as an American, I don’t disagree with. Namely the US […]
If you’re like the majority of the US, you’re probably feeling pretty shell-shocked by the events on Capitol Hill yesterday. What happened? Why did it happen? And – most importantly – will it happen again? In an effort to break this down as thoroughly as possible, I’ve had to break this article into two sections. […]
So your landlord sucks. Now you want to know if you can sue them, how you’d go about doing that, and what you can expect to get, right? Before you consider suing your landlord, consider what you might have to sacrifice to win. Not every battle is worth dying for. And this one may or […]
On election night, Oregon became the first state in the US to decriminalize small quantities of hard drugs. Drugs like methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin, to name a few. The Oregon drug initiative will allow people arrested with small amounts of hard drugs to avoid going to trial, and possible jail time, by paying a $100 fine and […]
You probably heard that Biden won the election. You also probably heard that Trump plans to fight his loss in court by filing lawsuits. Against the country, he still runs for the time being. So far we have Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. Georgia is also undergoing a recount, which, according to Trump’s campaign, is on […]
By definition, impeachment is a formal charge of misconduct made against someone holding public office. The purpose is to bring charges against a government official. Being impeached does not – by default – remove any official from office. Of course, in most cases, it’s the hope that this government official will be eventually removed from office […]
The military draft may sound like a thing of the past, but as political tension grows in the United States, some citizens have a growing concern about an upcoming war – and the draft being reinstated as a result. The United States military draft started in 1940 with the Selective Training and Service Act. Over […]
