Its not technical. Its not magic. Its just dedicatedhard work done by people who know what it takes to get asite moving towards the first page of the most popular search engines. SEO is not Search Engine Marketing (SEM), or themore common term Pay-Per-Click.

Your SEO journey to optimized page one search results, starts with afree evaluation of where you currently stand for the key wordsthat are important to your company.

It doesnt matter what city you are in, or what type of business you run, we CAN get your Kansas City, Overland Park, Olathe, Kansas business Web site moving to the first page of Google.

It all starts with a phone call (913) 489-7866where we explain what it actually takes, and what it costs to get on the first page of Google.

We do have the skills and experience to inexpensively move your Kansas City site way up the list in Google. But how high up the list is a factor of many things, all of which we can help you understand, implement on your site.Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is not Search Engine Marketing (SEM), there is a significant difference between the two.

Just to make sure were talking the same terms

Kansas City SEO is not the Kansas City Pay-Per-Click (PPC) ads at the top of a Google search result screen.

SEO are the organic results below the ads in Google.

We do provide (PPC) support to clients. The cost of PPC is determined almost 100 percent by how much the competition is currently paying Google to be at the top the ad section. To be at the top of the ads you have to be willing to pay more to Google than your competition is paying. PPC is simple, inexpensive (less than $500) to set up, but can be expensive to run monthly depending on what your competition is currently paying to Google. Theres no way to know this Google cost without doing a couple hours of analysis at our hourly rate of $80.

SEO is a long term marketing strategy where you try to get your site to show up well in the organic (below the ad section in Google). You cannot pay Google to be in the organic section, so you have to spend more time on SEO than your competition to get to the top of the organic section.

SEO is a marathon, not a sprint. You have to just spend the time and, depending on whos already on the first page of Google, it could take more than a year to get on the first page of Google in the organic section. Its just depends on how much time you want to spend. Time = money. Someone has to spend the time doing these sixthings.

1. Do the analysis and come up with the top key words you want to be found for in Google.

2. Modify your Web site content one time in support ofthe top key words you want to be found for in Google.

3. Continually, on your Web site provide the consumer with fresh new information forthe top key words you want to be found for in Google. (Blogging is a good way to do this on your site)

4. Be bigger on the Internet than your Web site forthe top key words you want to be found for in Google. (Social media)

5. Have a marketing strategy that gets lots of people visiting your Web site. Google loves a busy traffic Web site.

6. Make your Web Design Responsive or Mobile.

If you do thesesixthings above, and never stop, you will see upward movement for your Key Words in the Google search results. The closer you get to page one results in Google, the more you have to work. Remember, you have to bump off those already on the first page of Google by doing more than they are. They got to the first page by working at it.

So the cost of doing items 1 thru 6above vary based on the current competition and what you have to do more than they are currently doing. All the 6above are time activities. Whos going to spend the time doing them.

Transhuman Science-Fiction Roleplaying in the Far Future

It is the Second Age of Space. The light of human civilisation, which had flickered and threatened to die, burns bright again with contact with the thousand worlds of space. Humankind laughs, filled with the joys and power of a new-found youth, and strides forth to bring its message of hope and regeneration to the stars The Songs of Old Earth, Book I

The ENnie Award-winning transhuman science-fiction RPG setting returns, in a new edition updated and completely rewritten for the Fate Core rules. Containing all the rules needed to play, including:

Mindjammer The Roleplaying Game can be used to play in the New Commonality of Humankind, or as a complete and detailed transhuman space opera rules set for any science-fiction setting.

Never has there been a greater time of opportunity. Old certainties are dying; the universe is in flux, and for the first time in ten thousand years no one knows what the future will bring. So charge your blaster, thoughtcast your orders to the starship sentience, and fire up the planing engines come and defend the light of humanitys greatest civilisation as it spreads to the stars!

A complete standalone roleplaying game. This book is all you need to play.

Mindjammer The Roleplaying Game is the core rulebook in the Mindjammer line of transhuman science-fiction roleplaying adventure and novels. Join us as we travel through the New Commonality of Humankind, Old Earths greatest civilisation, and rediscover the lost colonies of the distant past.

Transhumanism is a major theme in Mindjammer. Everywhere hyperadvanced technology and synthetic intelligence are transforming humankind, changing individuals into something more than human something other. Play characters caught up in the turmoil of a transformative civilisation: humans, divergent hominids, uplifted animals, synthetic beings. You can even play a sentient starship character!

Characters who survive and thrive grow to be more capable and powerful. More than that, however, your Mindjammer characters can begin to push the very boundaries of what it means to be human. Mindjammer provides detailed rules for how your character can transcend human limitations: acquire multiple bodies, become the sentience embodied in an entire city or even world; step beyond the boundaries of time, language, and individuality. Choose the direction the evolution of the human species will take!

Mindjammer takes place in the far future. Its default setting, the New Commonality of Humankind, is over ten thousand years old, until recently an ancient and stagnant slower-than-light civilisation centred in Manhome, the solar system of Old Earth, and a handful of surrounding star systems. 200 years ago, the Commonality discovered faster-than-light travel, and has been expanding out into the galaxy, discovering lost colonies it settled by slower-than-light generation and stasis ship many thousands of years before.

The Commonality is at once strange and familiar. A vast interstellar shared consciousness called the Mindscape links all Commonality citizens by neural implant, tying the overstretched civilisation together. The Core Worlds around Old Earth are complex and highly advanced, as far from our 21st century and as incomprehensible as we are from the Stone Age. On the ever-expanding Frontier there are civilisations more like our own and just as many far stranger. Everywhere there is turmoil and conflict.

Human Space the theoretical limit of human colonisation by the Diaspora slower-than-light generation and stasis ships extends to a possible 10,000 light years from Old Earth, a sizable proportion of the galactic disk. Commonality Space the limit of current Commonality contact and integration over the past two centuries is much smaller, perhaps 3000 light years in diameter. The schematic below shows the hearts of the 27 Commonality sectors, including the Core Worlds.

Mindjammer is a Fate Core game. Its also standalone, meaning it contains all the rules you need to play. That includes the essentials from the Fate Core SRD, customised and dials set for this action-packed science-fiction setting. It also provides new rules derived from the Fate Core, many of which are released as Open Content under the Open Gaming License.

Mindjammers new rules include rules for creating and playing constructs such as starships, space stations, cities, installations, and vehicles; rules for organisations such as corporacies, governments, and armies and space navies, and for running conflicts between them; and rules for describing and even playing whole cultures. Derived from the Mindjammer 1st edition culture conflict rules but fully consistent with the Fate Core system, the culture rules allow you to run teams of culture agents manipulating entire cultures in the turmoil of Rediscovery.

One of the major features of the Mindjammer game is its emphasis on generating and playing in a science-fiction setting which feels deep and realistic. The rules for planets, star systems, and alien life have been developed with that in mind drawing on the current state of play in cosmology, planetology, and xenoscience, they provide a programmatic way to generate and describe encounters and encounter locations in a way which supports rich science-fiction adventure.

And thats not all. Although these rules are couched in the Fate Core context, theyre also very modular, and can be used in any science-fiction game. Do you want your science-fiction environments to include black holes, molecular clouds, protoplanetary disks, exotic biospheres, and rich and consistent ecosystems? Look no further.

Mindjammer The Roleplaying Game is the first in an extensive line of Mindjammer RPG products. Although the core book contains all the rules you need to play, we have a product pipeline of adventures, campaign packs, atlases, and sourcebooks detailing the New Commonality of Humankind and the Mindjammer universe. Coming soon:

Future products include the Commonality Atlas 1: The Darradine Restoration, The Black Zone, Twilight, Commonality Atlas 2: The Successor States, Solenine, The Comsentience Sourcebook, and much more!

This website itself is a content resource for your Mindjammer games.

Mindjammer is also the name of the first novel in the Mindjammer series, available now from Mindjammer Press! By ENnie award-winning RPG author Sarah Newton, its an action-packed tale of mind-bending technologies in the unimaginably far future, as the human race struggles to fulfil its transhuman destiny.

In the seventeenth millennium, the New Commonality of Humankind is expanding, using newly-discovered faster-than-light travel to rediscover lost worlds colonised in the distant past. Its a time of turmoil, of clashing cultures, as civilizations shudder and collapse before the might of a benevolent empire ten millennia old.

In the Solenine Cluster, things are going from bad to worse, as hyper-advanced technologies destabilise a society in chaos. Thaddeus Clay and his special ops team from the Security and Cultural Integrity Instrumentality are on the trail of the Transmigration Heresy. But what they find is something beyond even their imagining and something which could tear the whole Commonality apart!

Available now from DriveThru, Amazon.com (trade paperback / ebook) and Amazon.co.uk (trade paperback / ebook), and hobby and game stores everywhere!

Complex, gripping, and the most original sci-fi youre likely to get G*M*S Magazine A very exciting and intelligently-written novel that should be on the reading list of every SF fan! Stargazers World William Gibson-like in the intensity of the ideas it introduce a heady mixture of action, crunchy science fiction elements and that perennial cyberpunk or transhuman question: what does human mean? Science-fiction may have a new star forming in its firmament. Shores of Night Thrilling adventure and mystery wrapped up with an inventive, mind-bending look at mankinds future. Howard Andrew Jones, author of The Desert of Souls

 SEO  Comments Off on Coronation Internet Marketing Ltd. – Phoenix SEO

Also, we can offer high quality website design, marketing consulting as well as a lot more. Just call our SEO officetoday at (480) 630-0104. (If its outside of regular business hours, please leave us a message.)

In case you happen to own a business or a company in Phoenix, Arizona, you need to know that SEO (search engine optimization) services are very important for the growth and prosperity of your venture. Today, and for the last couple of years, SEO has been an integral part of internet advertising. In fact, many businesses are continuing to incorporate search engine optimization into their marketing policy. Therefore, if you arent doing the same, it is the reason you are unable to compete with the big guys.

Although owners of small businesses may not entirely understand the advantages that online advertising brings, let alone SEO, it is important that they try their search engine optimization options so as to maximize visibility for their products and services. SEO is the great equalizer. It is the only place small business owners can match their more seasoned and well-established competitors.

Search engines help people find solutions to simple queries online. For instance, a person may want to know where a favorite restaurant is located in their neighborhood. Others want a lawyer or even a plumber. When users key in specific keywords into search engines, individuals will be presented with numerous results. The results are usually arranged according to relevance or importance to the entered keywords.

Without search engines, it would not be easy for people to locate information online. Simply put, search engine optimization enables people to find the information they need on the internet. This is by use of keywords or even the business brand. This is why it is important that you rank on the top of the search engine results page so that users can easily find your website.

Do you want to rank on the first page in Google? Just call the top search engine marketingservice in the Greater Phoenix, AZ area at (480) 630-0104. Calling us outside of business hours? Leave a message and well call you back ASAP.

In just a few short months weve been able tohave our business rank on the first page of Google for a number of keyword terms compared to other SEO companies in the Phoenix valley. Imagine what we can do for your company.

Our first page rankings as of August 2014.

Since most web users depend on search engines like Google or Bing to get products and services, making use of search engine optimizationservices as an integral part of any internet marketing strategy makes a whole lot of sense. For a small business in Phoenix, it means that you can make buyers find your products or services a lot more cheaply. This in turn translates to growth of the venture.

However, business owners are sometimes reluctant to trust Phoenix search engine optimizationcompanies to improve marketing. This is because of a few companies out there that are actually out to con unsuspecting business owners. This is because such businesses can be overwhelmed by the complexity of what SEO is and how it is achieved. But if a business owner gets a solid marketing firm that can offer good references (like we can), it can benefit their businesses in a great way.

The following are some of the ways that your businesses would benefit if they sought the services of a top consultant for SEO like Coronation Internet Marketing Ltd.

When people use search engines to look for something on the web, they are normally given some options which they have to individually look at in order to determine if it gives them what they want. Research shows that the majority of people will choose the first few sites that rank at the top of the search results page. You want your site to be clicked? You need to appear on the top of the search engine results page (SERP).

There are many things that come into play when improving the website ranking of your business and this includes the URL structure and the content. However, upon properly utilizing all the elements, your website will get more visibility. Since customers will have an easier time locating your business, they are likely to contact you for your products and services.

With SEO, the ranking of your page will stay ahead of the competition for a long time. This goes a long way to ensure that customers are able to access your website in future. In short, the impacts of an effective search engine optimization campaign lasts long to give you a continued presence on the web.

It is not possible for your products or even services to sell if people in greater Phoenix (or anywhere else, for that matter) do not know of them. This is precisely what SEO does. It ensures that people are aware of your business. Even if the initial response does not lead to significant sales, the publicity that you will get is very good for your business when you look at it in the long term. Brand recognition can almost certainly lead to better sales because more and more people will become familiar with your product or service. The more they know of it, the more they are likely to trust it. If your website generates high traffic, consistent sales are just a matter of time.

For every marketing campaign, expect that it will come with its own costs. In most cases, advertising campaigns are very costly. But with Phoenix SEO services, you can advertise your products and services and get an even higher turnover while not breaking the bank for it. This is especially important for a small business that is just starting out and therefore does not have the financial muscle to launch robust advertising campaigns.

As part of our SEO Phoenix marketing, your website will be restructured and rebuilt so that it is turned into the hub of your content online. Not only does this cater to your market but it also fills the website with fresh and highly relevant information. Molding your web into a traffic magnet makes your products and services sell more. To achieve this, you need to work with experienced Phoenix web designers and internet marketers who have the capability to not only improve visitors experience but also remove unwanted fluff from your site.

If you want your company website to rank on the first page on Googles search engine results page, do not hesitate to call the premier Phoenix SEO consultants at (480) 630-0104. Dont be afraid to call us outside of business hours and leave a message. Well call you back as soon as we can.

Every day thousands of people search for businesses online. 91% of them will click on websites they find on the first page. What does this means for you and your business? It means you have an opportunity to get more website traffic, get more leads and earn more money.

Most websites are filled with on-page errors that contribute to poor search rankings. Duplicate content or meta information, spammy links or a poor site link structure and navigation are often the culprits. In order for your site to rank well, it must be targeted towards your business, products and services. And more importantly, it has to be search-engine friendly. Thats where the Charleston SEO Firm comes in.

Most Internet marketing companies claim they can get you great search engine rankings. Unfortunately, many of those companies cant show any real results theyve attained with real clients. Charleston SEO has achieved numerous results with real SC clients.

An even worse problem in the Internet marketing business is companies that are able to achieve results but that do so with shady link building schemes that Google will ultimately punish them for. The Charleston SEO Firm will never participate in any black hat or gray area of optimization. We believe in writing superior, 100% unique content that gets the attention of the search engines and serves as the foundation of a multifaceted campaign incorporating web development, content marketing and social media.

We care about our clients sites and online reputations, and understand that taking risky shortcuts to achieve higher rankings can harm a business more than it can help in the long run. Our campaigns enable your website to climb the rankings naturally and not as the result of some spammy strategy of which Google and Bing disapprove.

At the Charleston SEO Firm, we dont just guess what keywords your prospective clients are typing into the search engines. We research exactly what is being typed and target those search terms in order to send you more qualified traffic. Targeted web traffic results in higher conversion rate and more business.

Adoption History: Eugenics – University of Oregon

 Eugenics  Comments Off on Adoption History: Eugenics – University of Oregon
Jan 112016
 

Worries about the bad blood of children available for adoption were a prominent feature of the adoption landscape during the first four decades of the twentieth century. They help to explain why most child welfare professionals favored family preservation over adoption. At the time, a vigorous eugenics movement sought to control the reproduction of genetically inferior people through sterilization (called negative eugenics) and encourage the reproduction of genetically superior people (called positive eugenics). The movement drew support from Americans of all political persuasions. Henry Chapin, a famous pediatrician whose wife, Alice, founded one of the first specialized adoption agencies, claimed that the divergent fertility rates of rich and poor were fueling the demand for adoptable babies because citizens with better genetic endowment were more likely to suffer from infertility. For Chapin, eugenic factors always mattered in adoption. Not babies merely, but better babies, are wanted.

Fears about childrens quality or stock were shared by ordinary people as well as professionals and policy-makers. In 1928, one couple wrote to the U.S. Childrens Bureau, We are very anxious to adopt a baby but would like to get one that we know about its parentage. Are there any homes or orphanages where a person can find out whether there is insanity, fits, or other hereditary diseases in its ancestors? We would like to have one from Christian parentage. In addition to religious preferences, specifications for gender, racial, ethnic, and national qualities in children illustrated popular ideas about heredity. Physical health, mental health, criminality, educability, sexual morality, intelligence, and temperament were all associated with blood.

Before 1940, eugenic concerns were expressed frequently and bluntly. Henry Herbert Goddard, a national authority on feeble-minded children, insisted that compassion for needy children was shortsighted because adoption was a crime against those yet unborn. The eugenic threat adoption posed, according to Goddard, was directly tied to illegitimacy. Unmarried mothers were likely to be feeble-minded themselves and have feeble-minded children whose adoptions would contaminate the gene pool by reproducing future generations of defectives. Goddard advocated segregating these children and adults in benevolent institutions, where their dangerous sexuality could be contained.

Even professionals who believed in making adoption work believed that it was a social crime to place inferior children with parents who expectedand deservednormal children. Agencies sometimes required parents to return children if and when abnormal characteristics appeared and laws, such as the Minnesota Adoption Law of 1917, treated feeble-mindedness as cause for annulment. Medical writers in the popular press warned parents to be careful whom you adopt. Adopters faced frightening risks because children unlucky enough to need new parents were also unlucky enough to be genetic lemons.

Tragic stories of unregulated adoptions which ignored or overlooked the hard facts of bad heredity were publicized by reformers determined to institute minimum standards and protect couples from their own foolish desires to adopt newborns and infants. Professionals used mental tests and other assessment techniques to reveal hard-to-detect problems. Elaborate genealogies, extending well beyond parents to grandparents and other natal relatives, were considered evidence of thoroughness in child placement. Case records showed that many social workers expected anti-social behavior of all kinds to be passed intergenerationally from birth parents to children. Nature-nurture studies often reflected eugenic convictions about the heritability of intelligence and tried to establish scientifically the maximum tolerable gap between hereditary background and adoptive home.

Many people believe that eugenics disappeared in America after the specter of Nazism made eugenics synonymous with racism and genocide. While public discussion of taint and degeneration certainly decreased after World War II, blood and biology remained central themes in adoption history. Anxieties about miscegenation in transracial adoptions and international adoptions, as well as strenuous efforts to make racial predictions and offer genetic counseling in cases of mixed-race infants illustrate that eugenics did not disappear so much as change into a less aggressive, more polite form.

University of Illinois Repeals the First Amendment for Its …

 Misc  Comments Off on University of Illinois Repeals the First Amendment for Its …
Dec 182015
 

Late Friday afternoon (August 22), the University of Illinois broke its three-week long silence on the controversy regarding the Chancellor’s revocation of a tenured offer to Steven Salaita, who had accepted a faculty position in the American Indian Studies Program at the flagship campus at Urbana-Champaign. Chancellor Phyllis Wise and Board of Trustees Chairman Christopher Kennedy both issued statements explaining the revocation, but in terms far more alarming than the original decision itself. It is not an exaggeration to say that the Chancellor and the Board of Trustees have now declared that the First Amendment does not apply to any tenured faculty at the University of Illinois.

A bit of background to Friday’s bombshell statements. Last October, Professor Salaita, then teaching at Virginia Tech, accepted a tenured offer from the Urbana-Champaign campus. He went through the regular appointments process at the University of Illinois, and received approval by the relevant departments and deans after a review of his scholarship and teaching. The offer, which he accepted, was conditional on approval by the Board of Trustees. Such approval clauses are typical in all teaching contracts and had, previously, been pro forma at Illinois, as they are at all serious universities: it is not the job of the Board of Trustees of a research institution to second-guess the judgment of academics and scholars. Well before the Board took the matter up, even University officials were describing Salaita as a faculty member, and he moved to Illinois and was scheduled to teach two classes this fall.

Salaita also has a Twitter account. “Tweets” are limited to 140 characters, so the medium is conducive primarily to spontaneous and superficial commentary. As a Palestinian-American and scholar of colonialism, Salaita tweeted extensively about the Israeli attack on Gaza. Contrary to the initial misrepresentations put into circulation by far right websites, none of the tweets were either anti-semitic or incitements to violence. Some were vulgar, some juvenile, some insulting, some banal. The First Amendment unequivocally protects Salaita’s right to express every one of those opinions on a matter of public concern, and to do so, if he wants, with vulgarity and insults. As a matter of American constitutional law, this is not a close case.

Part of the First Amendment’s protection of such speech is that government, including a state university, is prohibited from punishing the speaker for his expression or viewpoint. Revoking a job offer because of such speech would, again, be clearly unconstitutional. Salaita’s constitutional and contractual claims will no doubt be adjudicated in court, and the University should lose.

That now brings us to Friday’s shocking statements. Chancellor Wise declared that “we cannot… tolerate… personal and disrespectful words or actions that demean and abuse either viewpoints themselves or those who express them.” Yet as a matter of well-settled American constitutional law, the University of Illinois must tolerate “words… that demean and abuse either viewpoints themselves or those who express them.” The University has no choice, both as a matter of constitutional law and as a matter of its contractual commitment with its faculty to academic freedom. Scathing critiques of both viewpoints and authors abound in almost all scholarly fields; it would be the end of serious scholarly inquiry and debate were administrators to become the arbiters of “good manners.” More simply, it would be illegal for the University to start punishing its faculty for failure to live up to the Chancellor’s expectations for “civil” speech and disagreement.

The university, of course, need not and should not tolerate the mistreatment of students in the classroom, but there is no evidence of any such pedagogical misconduct in this case; indeed, the public evidence is that Salaita is a successful and popular teacher. No serious university evaluates pedagogical fitness based on speculative inferences from twitter accounts, yet the Chancellor’s statement implies that this is what Illinois has done in this instance. Faculty have pedagogical and professional obligations to their students, but that does not include the obligation to refrain from expressing views, whether about matters of public concern or matters within the purview of a faculty member’s scholarship, that some student somewhere might find upsetting, leading that student to conclude that that faculty member might not “value[] that student as a human being.” A student’s entitlement is to be treated seriously and professionally in the classroom; students have no entitlement to never find the views of their professors offensive or upsetting.

Chairman Kennedy’s statement is even worse than the Chancellor’s. While endorsing the Chancellor’s abrogation of the constitutional and contractual rights of the faculty, he goes even further, declaring that “there can be no place” for “disrespectful and demeaning speech” “in our democracy, and therefore, there will be no place for it in our university.” We may certainly hope for more civility in public life, but “disrespectful and demeaning speech” not only has an extensive presence in our democracy (as everyone knows), it has a constitutionally protected place as well, as the United States Supreme Court has repeatedly affirmed. Yet Chairman Kennedy says he believes only in “free speech tempered in respect for human rights.” But there is no doctrine of “free speech tempered in respect for human rights” in American constitutional law. It is a national embarrassment that a public official, the Chairman of the University of Illinois’s Board of Trustees, apparently does not know even the basic facts about the American constitutional system.

At moments like this, one wonders: Where are the lawyers? Chancellor Wise and Chairman Kennedy have made statements that commit the University of Illinois to illegal because unconstitutional courses of action. They should resign, or be removed from office, before doing further damage to one of the nation’s great research universities. Their public statements make clear they are unfit to lead academic institutions in which both freedom of speech and freedom of research and inquiry are upheld.

Agency fees, the First Amendment and Rauners executive …

 Misc  Comments Off on Agency fees, the First Amendment and Rauners executive …
Dec 182015
 

Gov. Bruce Rauner issued an executive order on Feb. 9 directing state agencies to stop taking fair share union fees, also known as agency fees, from state employees who have chosen not to join the union.

The executive order builds on the logic of the U.S. Supreme Court case Harris v. Quinn, which held that the First Amendment prohibits the state from forcing people who receive a government subsidy, but who are not actual government employees, to pay union fees. The reasoning of this case should apply to nonunion government employees as well. All speech by public-sector unions, including collective bargaining, is political because it affects public policy. Forcing nonunion employees to support a union means forcing them to pay for such political speech, and therefore violates the First Amendment.

Unions and their supporters, however, argue that agency fees are justified because they prevent nonunion employees from free riding, a term unions use to imply that agency-fee payers are unfairly benefiting from union services. They claim these fees provide for nonunion employees share of the cost of collective bargaining, contract administration, and the pursuance of matters affecting wages, hours and conditions of employment.

There are two big problems with this argument: First, attempts to prevent free riding cannot justify forcing a person to pay for union lobbying or political speech, even if it might benefit that person, because doing so violates that persons rights to free speech and free association under the First Amendment. Second, many nonunion employees might not want the services the union provides or find them beneficial.

Individuals have different circumstances, needs and wants not every state worker necessarily favors greater spending and bigger government. Some workers may object to the unions services because they believe it leads to unnecessary government spending, which is unsustainable in the states current financial situation. Others may prefer 401(k)-style retirement plans because they dont want their retirement plans being mismanaged by the government.

Employees also might not like the way the union manages its money. For example, AFSCME spent only 51 cents of every dollar in union dues on representation of workers in 2013, while most of the rest of the money went to administration, overhead, and political and lobbying activities. Also in 2013, the Service Employees International Union Healthcare Illinois-Indiana spent $1.5 million out of its $46.2 million budget on hotels, air travel, rental cars, restaurants and catering. And the Illinois Education Association, the states biggest teachers union, devoted just 26 percent of its budget to representation in 2014, with nearly 70 percent going to administration and overhead and 3 percent to political activities.

State law allows, but does not require, unions to deduct agency fees. The 196-page collective-bargaining agreement for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees contains provisions that require the deduction of agency fees from nonunion employees. Its not hard to imagine why a nonunion employee might object to unions obtaining the power to collect agency fees via the collective-bargaining process, while justifying such fees from nonunion employees as the cost of collective bargaining.

Further, there is no reason to believe agency fees are being used for purely nonpolitical activities. Unions get to decide for themselves which expenses are chargeable to nonmembers, and often categorize purely political activities as representational. In some cases, unions have categorized contributions to groups whose activities consist of running issue campaigns as representational activities. Nonmember employees generally cant afford to spend the time and money required to challenge these determinations, so they are in effect forced to pay for union politics even if they choose to opt out.

Agency fees are wrong because they force people to pay for services they may not want or find beneficial, and compel people to pay for union political speech, in violation of their First Amendment rights. While some government employees may find union representation beneficial, nonunion employees dont have a choice. The unions could avoid these First Amendment issues by simply allowing these employees to opt out of the unions representation, and not receive union services, under one or none policies.

If they dont, the U.S. Supreme Court should take up a case involving agency fees, and issue an opinion protecting nonunion employees First Amendment rights. When it comes to collecting fair share fees, abolishing the practice would be the only outcome thats truly fair to workers across the country.

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution is contained in the Bill of Rights. The First Amendment has proven to be one of the most fundamental and important in respects to the rights attributed to the populace of the United States. Originally, the First Amendment was implemented and applied solely to Congress. However, by the beginning of the twentieth century, it was upheld that the First Amendment is to apply to all forms of government, including state and local levels. The Supreme Court decided that the Fourteenth Amendment Due Process Clause would apply to the 1st Amendment, and thus rendering such a decision.

As stated in the United States Constitution, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, of of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Though a relatively short and concise assertion, the text provides for quite an encompassing set of rights that protect the citizens of the United States, and some of the most important and basic human rights. The First Amendment has many clauses that relate to each of the concepts that it sets out to protect. Religion is discussed in two clauses, one regarding the establishment of religion, and the other the free exercise of religion.

This proves to be one of the most important rights to secure by the Fathers of the Constitution, for so many people of European descent immigrated to the American Colonies to avoid religious persecution, and to find a safe haven to practice their religion of choice without any dire consequences. The First Amendment prohibits the government to establish a formal or national religion for the nation. It also addresses that there will be no preference of any particular religion, including the practice of no religion, or non religion.

The 1st Amendment guarantees the people of the United States the free exercise of religion, without interference from governmental factions. This right would also extend to any organization or individual infringing on such right, and would be deemed as unconstitutional.

One of the most commonly referred to clauses under the 1st Amendment is the freedom of speech. This clause has proven to be of great importance, particularly in the twentieth century and continues on with such regard in our lifetime. Under the text of the First Amendment, many issues are addressed regarding Freedom of Speech, and restrictions to exist in which such a practice may prove to be harmful to the general population or public. An example is the concept of sedition, and how this conduct can lead to insurrection against the government.

Other concepts also addressed include commercial speech, political speech, obscenity, libel, slander, and symbolic speech, such as the desecration of the American Flag. Under the First Amendment, there have been important and key court cases that have established a form precedence in how to apply the Amendment to these kinds of circumstances. The Freedom of the press is also included, and subject to similar restrictions as the freedom of speech.

The rights to petition and assembly often seem to be overlooked, for freedom of religion and speech are most commonly associated with the 1st Amendment. The right to petition is important because it gives citizens the opportunity to address their government in issues that have relevance and importance to the commonwealth. The formulation of an assembly, under the First Amendment, can be interpreted as citizens gathering and unifying for the purpose of communicating views or opinions on national issues, and for the relaying of pertinent information. The right to assembly is often related to that of petition, in such a way where citizens may assemble in the process of petitioning the government.

In a Nutshell

The courts have been largely responsible for protecting and extending this right of speech. Over the past two centuries they have explored the protection owed all sorts of expression, including sedition, “fighting words,” “dangerous” speech, and obscenity, and all sorts of persons, including political radicals, Ku Klux Klansmen, and even students. But in doing so, the courts have also operated under the premise that a portion of the British legacy was correct: the right to speech is not absolute. As a result, the legal history of the First Amendment could be summarized as a balancing actan attempt to protect and extend free speech guarantees but also define the limits of this right in a manner consistent with the equally compelling rights of the community.

Freedom of speech would be easy if words did not have power. Guaranteeing people the right to say and print whatever they wanted would be easy if we believed that words had no real effect.

But Americans tend to believe that words do have powerthat they can anger and inspire, cause people to rise up and act out. Americans celebrate speakers like James Otis, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King, Jr., whose words inspired people to fight for independence, advance the American experiment in republican government, and dream of a more just society.

Freedom of speech would be easy if all people could be trusted to be rational discerners of truthif everyone could be trusted to sort out good ideas from bad ideas and recognize the ideologies and policies that were truly aimed at the best interests of the community.

But history has proven that people do not always recognize and reject bad ideas. The past is filled with examples of peoples and nations swayed by destructive ideas.

Freedom of speech would be easy if we just said that the right was absolute, that there were no limitations on what a person could say or print and no legal consequences for any expression no matter how false, slanderous, libelous, or obscene.

But as a nation, we have always held that there are limits to the right of speech, that certain forms of expression are not protected by the First Amendment.

The bottom line: freedom of speech is not easy. Words are powerful, which means that they can be dangerous. Humans are fallible, which means that they can make bad choices. And the right of speech is not absolute, which means that the boundaries of protected speech have to be constantly assessed.

All of these facts complicate America’s commitment to free speech, but they also make this commitment courageous. In addition, they leave the legal system with a difficult challenge. On the one hand, the courts are entrusted with protecting this right to free expression, which is so central to our national experience. On the other hand, they are charged with identifying the often blurry edges of this freedom.

Read on, and see if the courts have appropriately met both of these responsibilities.

First Amendment – Text, Origins, and Meaning

Text of Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Jeff Hunter/The Image Bank/Getty Images Origins of the First Amendment

The founding father most concerned–some might say obsessed–with free speech and free religious exercise was Thomas Jefferson, who had already implemented several similar protections in the constitution of his home state of Virginia. It was Jefferson who ultimately persuaded James Madison to propose the Bill of Rights, and the First Amendment was Jefferson’s top priority.

The first clause in the First Amendment–“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”–is generally referred to as the establishment clause. It is the establishment clause that grants “separation of church and state,” preventing–for example–a government-funded Church of the United States from coming into being. More

The second clause in the First Amendment–“or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”–protects freedom of religion. Religious persecution was for all practical purposes universal during the 18th century, and in the already religiously diverse United States there was immense pressure to guarantee that the U.S. government would not require uniformity of belief.

Congress is also prohibited from passing laws “abridging the freedom of speech.” What free speech means, exactly, has varied from era to era. It is noteworthy that within ten years of the Bill of Rights’ ratification, President John Adams successfully passed an act specifically written to restrict the free speech of supporters of Adams’ political opponent, Thomas Jefferson. More

During the 18th century, pamphleteers such as Thomas Paine were subject to persecution for publishing unpopular opinions. The freedom of press clause makes it clear that the First Amendment is meant to protect not only freedom to speak, but also freedom to publish and distribute speech. More

The “right of the people to peaceably assemble” was frequently violated by the British in the years leading up to the American Revolution, as efforts were made to ensure that radical colonists would not be able to foment a revolutionary movement. The Bill of Rights, written as it was by revolutionaries, was intended to prevent the government from restricting future social movements.

A powerful indictment of contemporary attacks on free speech, this book argues for a vigorous First Amendment jurisprudence protecting even offensive types of speech. In recent years, political activists, academics, and legal specialists have attacked traditional notions of free speech protection as they concern hate speech, obscenity, and pornography. They have called for changes in Supreme Court doctrine in defining the First Amendment and have argued that the traditional view of free speech actually creates and perpetuates a society in which the weakwomen, minorities, the poorhave no voice. While recognizing their fears, Nicholas Wolfson argues that it is impossible to separate bad speech from good speech without fatally compromising the uniquely American concept of free speech, and that efforts to modify our concept of free speech for a greater egalitarian good can only result in undue state influence over private speech. In a keenly argued analysis, he finds that, in the end, the preservation of free and vigorous speech requires a strong First Amendment protection for even the most hateful of speech.

History of Gun Rights – a Timeline of the 2nd Amendment

 Second Amendment  Comments Off on History of Gun Rights – a Timeline of the 2nd Amendment
Sep 262015
 

After going virtually unchallenged for more than one hundred years, Americans right to own guns was one of the hottest political topics of the second half of the 20th Century. The issue has calmed somewhat in the early days of the 21st Century, but if history is our guide, the debate is going nowhere until an inevitable and definitive ruling is handed down by the nations courts: does the Second Amendment apply to individual citizens?

1791: The Second Amendment is Ratified

The ink had hardly dried on the ratification papers of the Constitution before a political movement was undertaken to amend the framing document to declare gun ownership as a right.

A select committee assembled to review amendments proposed by James Madison authored the language that would become the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights: A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

1871: NRA Founded

The National Rifle Association was founded by a pair of Union soldiers in 1871, not as a political lobby but as an effort to promote the shooting of rifles. However, the organization would grow to become the face of America’s pro-gun lobby in the 20th Century.

1822: Bliss v. Commonwealth Brings Individual Right Into Question

The Second Amendments intent for individual Americans first came into question in 1822, in Bliss v. Commonwealth. The court case arose in Kentucky after a man was indicted for carrying a sword concealed in a cane.

He was convicted and fined $100.

Bliss appealed the conviction, citing a provision in the Commonwealths constitution that states: The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the state, shall not be questioned.

In a majority vote with just one judge dissenting, the court overturned the conviction against Bliss and ruled the law unconstitutional and void.

1856: Dred Scott v. Sandford Upholds Individual Right

The Second Amendment as an individual right was affirmed by the Supreme Court of the United States in its decision in Dred Scott v. Sandford in 1856. With the rights of slaves in question, the nations highest court opined on the intent of the Second Amendment for the first time, writing that affording slaves full rights of American citizenship would include the right to keep and carry arms wherever they went.

1934: National Firearms Act Brings About First Major Gun Control

The first major effort to eliminate private ownership of firearms came with the National Firearms Act of 1934. A direct response of the rise of gangster violence in general, and the Saint Valentines Day massacre in particular, the National Firearms Act sought to circumvent the Second Amendment by controlling firearms through a tax excise ($200 for each gun sale).

The National Firearms Act targeted fully-automatic weapons, short-barreled shotguns and rifles, pen and cane guns, and other firearms defined as gangster weapons.

1938: Federal Firearms Act Requires License for Dealers

The Federal Firearms Act of 1938 required anyone selling or shipping firearms to be licensed through the U.S. Department of Commerce. The Federal Firearms License (FFL) stipulated that guns could not be sold to persons convicted of certain crimes and required sellers to log the names and addresses of anyone they sold guns to.

1968: Gun Control Act Ushers In New Regulations

Thirty years after Americas first sweeping reform of gun laws, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy helped to usher in new federal legislation with wide-ranging implications. The Gun Control Act of 1968 prohibited mail order sales of rifles and shotguns, increased license requirements for sellers and broadened the list of persons prohibited from owning a firearm to include convicted felons, drug users and the mentally incompetent.

1994: Brady Act and Assault Weapons Ban

Two new federal laws passed by a Democrat-controlled Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton in 1994 became the hallmark of gun control efforts of the latter 20th Century.

The first, the Brady Handgun Violence Protection Act, required a five-day waiting period and background check for the sale of handguns, while also requiring a National Instant Criminal Background Check System to be created. The second, the Assault Weapons Ban (officially entitled the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act) banned a number of rifles defined as assault weapons, including many semi-automatic, military-style rifles such as the AK-47 and SKS.

2004: Assault Weapons Ban Sunsets

A Republican-controlled Congress refused to pass a reauthorization of the Assault Weapons Ban in 2004, allowing the ban to expire. President George W. Bush was criticized by gun control supporters for not actively pressuring Congress to renew the ban, while gun rights supporters criticized him for indicating that he would sign a reauthorization if Congress passed it.

2008: D.C. v. Heller is a Major Setback for Gun Control

Gun rights proponents were thrilled in 2008 when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment extends gun ownership rights to individuals. The decision affirmed an earlier decision by a lower appeals court and struck down handgun bans in Washington D.C. as unconstitutional.

The case was lauded as the first Supreme Court case to affirm the right of an individual to keep and bear arms in accordance with the Second Amendment. However, the ruling applied only to federal enclaves, such as the District of Columbia. Justices did not opine on the Second Amendments application to the states.

2010: Gun Owners Score Another Victory in McDonald v. Chicago

Gun rights supporters scored their second major Supreme Court victory in 2010, when the high court affirmed the individual right to own guns in McDonald v. Chicago.

The ruling, which was an inevitable follow-up to D.C. v. Heller, marked the first time that the Supreme Court ruled the provisions of the Second Amendment extend to the states. The ruling overturned an earlier decision by a lower court in a legal challenge to Chicagos ordinance banning the possession of handguns by its citizens.
