A boy asks his father what it means to die; a poet wonders whether we can truly know another’s thoughts; a man tries to understand how extreme violence and grace can occupy the same space. These are the questions Wayne Miller tackles in We the Jury: the hard ones, the impossible ones. From an academic dinner party disturbing in its crassness and disaffection to a family struggling to communicate gently the permanence of death, Miller situates these poems—taut and spare, yet rich in their images and full of unexpected turns—in dilemma. He faces moments of profound discomfort, grief, and even joy with a philosopher’s curiosity, a father’s compassion, and an overarching inquiry at the crossroads of ethics and art: what is the poet’s role in making sense of human behavior? A bomb crater–turned–lake “exploding with lilies,” a home lost during the late-aughts housing crash—these images and others, powerful and resonant, attempt to answer that question. Candid and vulnerable, Miller sits with us while we puzzle: we all wish we knew what to tell our children about death. But he also pushes past this and other uncertainties, vowing—and inviting us—to “expand our relationship / with Death,” and with every challenging, uncomfortable subject we meet. In the face of questions that seem impossible to answer, We the Jury offers not a shrug, but curiosity, transparency, an opening of the arms.

Each new attempt, however, results in an inevitable pattern of disappointment and failure. After viewing a program that shows how easily kids are traumatized by discrimination, he realizes what happens to kids manifests itself in adults. He then realizes the dark legacy of discrimination still exists within the American social conscience and reparations are inevitable. Kacee Gates' lawsuit however serves as a catalyst by Reb, the leader of a white supremacist militia group to facilitate his own personal agenda. Can Travis Clearwater, a renegade FBI agent and Moses Truth a civil rights activist stop Reb's plans before the country is forced into a second bloody and violent civil war drawn along racial lines.
Since writing We the Corrupt People over two years ago, many things of a corrupt nature have occurred in this country. To write of these important events would necessitate another book. The author randomly took three days of his local newspaper encompassing one week, and marked out all items dealing with corruption in all its forms. Day one had thirty items, day two contained forty-five items, and day three reported another thirty items. All items ranged from the least corrupt actions such as ticketing of all types of driving infractions, hit and run accidents, drug offenses of all types, murders–especially between teenagers, or family members killing other family members to rapes, child molesting, spies in this country, telephone and internet wire- tapping, bribing of officials, corporate bonuses of corrupt bank officials, and the Bernard Madoff case. There were hundreds of people fired for elder abuse, political officials cheating on their spouses, parents giving kids alcohol, the list goes on and on, ad nauseam every day, week, month—forever— these noted are only a few of the many corrupt actions. The country that once was the envy of the world is now the most corrupt of countries anywhere.

We the Students is a highly acclaimed resource that has introduced thousands of students to the field of legal studies by covering Supreme Court issues that directly affect them. It examines topics such as students’ access to judicial process; religion in schools; school discipline and punishment; and safety, discrimination and privacy at school.

Raskin provides students with the tools they need to gain a deeper appreciation of democratic freedoms and challenges, and underscores their responsibility in preserving constitutional principles. Completely revised and updated, the new, Fourth Edition of We the Students incorporates new Supreme Court cases, new examples, and new exercises to bring constitutional issues to life.
The implausible truth: Over one billion people in the world are hungry and over one billion are overweight. Far from complete opposites, hunger and obesity are in fact different manifestations of the same problem: It's increasingly difficult to find and eat nutritious food. By examining the global industrial food system using the deceptively simple template of a classic American dinner, We the Eaters not only outlines the root causes of this bizarre and troubling dichotomy but also provides a blueprint of actionable solutions—solutions that could start with changing out just a single item on your plate. From your burger to your soda, Gustafson unpacks how even the hyperlocal can cause worldwide ripples. For instance: American agricultural policy promoting corn and soybeans in beef farming means we feed more to cows than to hungry people. This is compounded by the environmental cost of factory livestock farming, rising obesity rates, and the false economics of unhealthfully high meat consumption. The answer? Eat a hamburger—just make it a smaller, sustainably raised, grass-fed one. Gustafson—a young entrepreneur, foreign policy expert, and food policy advocate—delivers a wake-up call that will inspire even the most passive reader to take action. We can love our food and our country while being better stewards of our system and our health. We the Eaters is nothing short of a manifesto: If we change dinner, we really can change the world.
Serenity could be captured for miles before the bay waters matched up with the oceanfront. The cost for a common man to view God's beauty and clear his mind was the sum total of nothing. Standing on the shore laying one's burdens down seemed to be habitual among the Davidson men. Forrester and Preston started walking, doing their morning ritual reporting to the slips where Paramour was docked. Before time clasped into faded memories, this was something they did often thinking about Papa. ----- Noelle Hess graduated from the Mortelle Division. One of the Federal Apparatus that no one really knows about. She learned her duties real-time fast. The art of babysitting depraved souls. She learned that born criminals can be categorized by two types. There are the extreme, organized thinkers with dark and brutal vengeance. Feeling slighted in anyway will cause them to implement tactics to terminate your existence. They can never be read by an ordinary mind. Only specific people will suffer from misdeeds crafted by the deadly ones. They move in and out undetected. The select few that routinely go missing are never seen again. Now the unlearned criminal story is usually short-lived. They kill or cripple based on being sloppy and unyielding. Seldom do they get away with much. They are usually the ones that talk entirely too much. ----- They stood watching and listening, waiting for the night to take its proper place. A partial moon casted just enough light to see the dock. Chase looked into her eyes. Her honest gaze never lied. Sounds that only a man could hear at dark went silent. Calmness took over, which relaxed her. She dropped her guard. This was favorable for him. ----- Over time, he grew to be very selective with his choices. Mitchell watched closely like animals do out on a hunt. Females could be very clever to a man's detriment if he's not careful. His gentle ways give him leverage needed to necessitate a cozy exchange. Mastery over the female's psyche awarded him men

This account of six families whose children were wrongly seized by child protection services vividly illustrates the constitutional balancing act where medicine, family interests, and child safety can clash. • Illustrates how the mantra "best interests of the child" masks errors, assumptions, and stereotypes that hide the real harm child protection policies are doing to children and families • Reveals how families are wrongly separated when overworked and underskilled caseworkers jump to conclusions of guilt, ignoring evidence of innocence • Focuses on the child protection system from the moment of intervention—starting with the child abuse hotline call that targets a specific child as a victim and his or her parents as suspects • Highlights the many decision points, attitudes, policies, and practices that operate to make even innocent parents vulnerable to having their children taken from them • Explains why basic due process principles ordered by federal and state courts would go a long way to help families, but cautions that just results depend on effective family defense counsel
What would the Founding Fathers think about America today? Over 200 years ago the Founders broke away from the tyranny of the British Empire to build a nation based on the principles of freedom, equal rights, and opportunity for all men. But life in the United States today is vastly different from anything the original Founders could have imagined in the late 1700s. The notion of an African-American president of the United States, or a woman such as Condoleezza Rice or Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, would have been unimaginable to the men who wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, or who ratified the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. In a fascinating work of history told through a series of in depth profiles, prize-winning journalist, bestselling author, and Fox political analyst Juan Williams takes readers into the life and work of a new generation of American Founders, who honor the original Founders’ vision, even as they have quietly led revolutions in American politics, immigration, economics, sexual behavior, and reshaped the landscape of the nation. Among the modern-day pioneers Williams writes about in this compelling new book are the passionate conservative President Reagan; the determined fighters for equal rights, Thurgood Marshall and Martin Luther King, Jr.; the profound imprint of Rev. Billy Graham’s evangelism on national politics; the focus on global human rights advocated by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt; the leaders of the gay community who refused to back down during the Stonewall Riots and brought gay life into America’s public square; the re-imagined role of women in contemporary life as shaped by Betty Friedan. Williams reveals how each of these modern-day founders has extended the Founding Fathers original vision and changed fundamental aspects of our country, from immigration, to the role of American labor in the economy, from modern police strategies, to the importance of religion in our political discourse
Young Citizens of the World takes a clear stance: Social studies is about citizenship education that is informed, deliberative, and activist—citizenship not only as a noun, something one studies, but as a verb, something one DOES. Its holistic, multicultural approach is based on this clear curricular and pedagogical purpose. Straightforward, engaging, and highly interactive, the book encourages students (and their teachers) to become informed, think it through, and take action. Each chapter is written as a civic engagement which is teacher-ready for use in elementary classrooms. A set of six teaching strategies that are constructive, inquiry-driven, dramatic, and deliberative bring the curricular framework to life through intensive, integrated meaningful studies of special places, important people, and significant times. Readers are invited to rehearse the projects in their social studies education courses and then to reinterpret them for their classrooms. The projects are supported by important resources for teaching, including supportive children’s literature, links to internet sites, and visual sources and by a Companion Website that enhances and extends the text.

On the day before his twenty-first wedding anniversary, David Sullinger buried an ax in his wife's skull. Now, eight jurors must retire to the deliberation room and decide whether David committed premeditated murder-or whether he was a battered spouse who killed his wife in self-defense. Told from the perspective of over a dozen participants in a murder trial, We, the Jury examines how public perception can mask the ghastliest nightmares. As the jurors stagger toward a verdict, they must sift through contradictory testimony from the Sullingers' children, who disagree on which parent was Satan; sort out conflicting allegations of severe physical abuse, adultery, and incest; and overcome personal animosities and biases that threaten a fair and just verdict. Ultimately, the central figures in We, the Jury must navigate the blurred boundaries between bias and objectivity, fiction and truth.
Political correctness appears innocuous enough until one truly looks at the ripple effect created by todays manipulative players looking for an advantage. Political correctness is a lie because saying it isnt so, doesnt change the factsthe facts are that pigs dont fly and life aint fair! This charade has become so ingrained in our culture today that no one is willing to call it what it is; a faade for a culture of entitlement based on denial and rejection of responsibility. While political correctness has been solidifying its place in our lives for some time now, it has recently been joined by its natural adjunct partnersocialism. Our current administration has decided it knows whats best for us in spite of a majority of voters expressing an opposing opinion. But my real fear is that his agenda and ambitions are going to destroy America Obama is not the first president with a large streak of narcissism. But the others had equally expansive feelings about their country. He epitomizes todays me culture with their its not my fault mentality supported by their entitlement attitude. He is the embodiment of everything that is wrong with America todayhe is the maestro of the blame-game (mistakes will be made, but others can be blamed). We have misplaced our traditional values while buying into the liberal's progressive mindset. Our losses have been mounting for decades and the accumulative consequences are coming to bear. The list is endless: common sense, common courtesies, responsibility, accountability,integrity,family values, love of countryand God. Im not suggesting he caused this decline in America's moral values; but I would suggest his radical vision for Americaand beyond, is to take what we see today to the next level. From his distorted perspective he is myopically focused on shepherding us to whats right for America.
