The Supply Room


Jan 6, 2020

There were three major political parties in the scene. Constitutional – a government by or operating under an authoritative document (constitution) that sets forth the system of fundamental laws and principles that determines the nature, functions, and limits of that government. As a sophomore at Cornell during the waning days of the Cold War, I had the unusual privilege to study with him (and Thanet Apornsuwan of Thammasat University), who personally designed a class on Thai politics and society just for me. We met once a week, often at his house, to discuss the assigned readings, which alternated each week between Thai (with Thanet) and English (with Ben) texts (many of which are banned in Thailand). For each meeting, they expected me to write a short reflective essay on the assigned readings—in Thai for the week with Thanet and in English for the week with Ben. So yes, it is the fault of the American citizenry for putting those people in charge of the country. The hostile forces who conspire with reactionaries and political opportunists inside the country have no given up their plots against the Vietnamese revolution. They focus on destroying political, ideological foundation with a view to eliminating the leading role of the CPV and the socialist regime in Viet Nam, depoliticising” the VPA, sowing division in the entire nation’s great unity, and driving a wedge between the people and the CPV and the VPA. Trade Union History Project This organization was established in 1987 to foster and record New Zealand trade union and labour history. Besides an extensive introduction to the Projects activities, the website includes timelines of New Zealand labour history, recommended reading, newsletters, information on publications, seminars and conferences and links. The site will also include the material from David Verran’s New Zealand Labour History website. Racism is the Achilles heel of this budding democracy. The economy of the United states was founded on the labor of African slave. This led to the dehumanization of Africans from Africa. They were regarded as man, and had no right to anything-chattel slavery. The Dred Scot decision is part of the racism that has permeated the core of American society and its enslaving codes. Hollywood again finds its thriller movies an excellent vehicle for nudging Americans into paranoia when Sandra Bullock finds herself caught in The Net, showing how “life’s normal breaks” can be engineered to destroy a life – and even take over someone’s identity. The technology of the modern world is twisted for evil ends, all because Sandra Bullock’s character has information – in this case, computer data – that They don’t want her to have. The Net demonstrates how much of our modern security in society – our public identity, our finances, our medical treatment, and our criminal records – can be altered with just a few keystrokes by the wrong people.

Although Parliament can override common law by passing legislation, this does not mean that Parliament is dominant over judges and the courts. Parliament enacts legislation, but it is judges who interpret the legislation and say what effect it has. This is because if there is a dispute about the meaning of a particular piece of legislation, the people in dispute can bring a case to the courts where it is the role of the courts to resolve that dispute and to determine the meaning of the legislation. Common law therefore gradually develops around legislation, and the law governing the subject matter of the legislation becomes a combination of statute law and common law. Apart from the Viet Nam Fatherland Front and the Việt nam Labor Confederation, in Viet Nam, there are other political and social organizations, such as the Viet Nam Women’s Association, the Hồ Chí Minh Communist Youth’s Union, the Viet Nam Veterans’ Association, and professional associations. These organizations played an important role in the struggle for national salvation. In the cause of renovation, industrialization and modernization, they have continued to contribute to the implementation of the Party’s guidelines and the Government’s policies. Service Contract – First and foremost, find out how long the manufacturer warranty lasts because it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. After that warranty period expires, it is extremely important to consider what service contract terms & conditions are available and at what cost. Is the service contract long or short-term; is there an auto-renewal clause; what are the cancellation fees; is there a guaranteed response time; and are parts and travel included in the contract cost? Before entering into any contract with the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or Third-Party Vendor, it is vital to understand exactly what you are signing. Don’t make the mistake of assuming the contract has favorable terms & conditions. The consumer should always consult an expert before signing a contract, regardless of any resistance from the salesperson at the initial purchase of the office equipment. There are ways to negotiate favorable contract terms & conditions. Furthermore, the consumer’s negotiating leverage is completely lost after the service contract has been signed. Alternatives to the traditional service contracts are available – time & materials, preventative maintenance only, loaner or depot service, or utilizing an Equipment Maintenance Management Program (EMMP).

There was a long series of appeals, and the trial became an international cause célèbre at the time, but eventually five were sentenced to death. One killed himself before the execution, and the other four were hanged. Some years later the verdict was quashed, the trial was recognised as utterly corrupt and unfair, but by this point the example of the Haymarket anarchists had become one the rallying cries for the early anarchist movement. Just at the time where anarchism was beginning to define itself against other forms of socialism, notably Marxist socialism, anarchists had a series of people they could identify with, statements that explained what anarchism was, and an annual celebration that brought people together. All of these things contributed to define the anarchist position. Socialism is a fundamental reconstruction of society as to make economics an affair of government, so as to organize society with the goal of social equality. Surely, the lofty goals of Social Justice and Equality sound great on the surface. Many Socialists fervently believe in these goals, without regard as to how they can be achieved, merely convinced that they must be achieved, regardless of the cost. I go out of my way and voluntarily promote healthy values and social awareness of problems, just like I’ve done in this Hub. While making sure not to compromise on enjoying life to the fullest, or encroaching on anyone else’s ability to do so, I alert other people to what’s going on. It used to be called giving “hue and cry”, and was one of the practices required of a responsible American citizen. I just do it because it’s right. A Latin phrase meaning on one side only. The phrase typically is used when one party communicates with the court without the other party being present. An ex parte communication is an exchange of information, orally or in writing, between the court and an attorney or party without the opposing attorney or party present. To maintain the court’s impartiality, judicial ethics prohibit a judge from considering ex parte communications concerning a pending proceeding. The best way to determine if renting or owning makes more sense is to educate yourself about both options. If you only need equipment for a short time, for example if you are hosting a seminar and need extra seating, it is usually much more economical to rent the equipment. If you do not have somewhere to store extra items and do not think you will use them again, there is really no sense in buying the equipment. However, other times it can cost much more to rent the equipment over a period of time than to buy it.

Leftward moving students agreed on what practical stands to take in all the battles with the right-leaning students in 1965-66 and 1966-67, but they also had somewhat different politics. Stan Gray and others who formed the Student Action Committee in February 1965 to defend Lenihan’s walkout and to uphold the right of students to engage in political demonstrations without administration or Council permission, were distinguished by already being either Marxists or socialists, although most also saw themselves as part of the emergent Canadian and American new left. Their voice was overshadowed by those of the second and third left groups from January 1966 through to mid Fall 1967 when they would begin to regain some prominence. From 1968 on, this first group would be made up of individuals who at least occasionally participated as individuals in off-campus francophone Quebec labour, student and even pro-independence (and left socialist) groups and brought those politics in modified form to the campus. Victor Rabinovitch is representative of the second group, a liberal-left group within the student council ‘civil service’ who drew upon the ideas developed by delegations at the annual congresses of both CUS and UGEQ and stressed the need to channel liberal-left politics through CUS and especially UGEQ and through the local elected student councils who constituted those national student organizations. Their influence was most marked behind the scenes in the Scholzberg Council in Fall 1965 and again in forming and leading the SDU to fight for the reinstatement of Daily editor Gage in Fall 1966. Mark Wilson, John Fekete and David Ticoll are representative of a third group, also operating within that civil service, influenced by Donald Kingsbury’s ideas, who put less stress on mass mobilization and being left or right, and more on doing research to come up with the scientifically most sound policy proposals to present to tripartite committees of students, administrators and faculty. Their influence was continuous from summer 1965 through to March 1968. In Fall 1968 and early 1969, the most left students from all three groups came together in a series of civil disobedience actions on the fundamental issues of student power and McGill’s role in the new Quebec. Those actions resulted in isolation from the large majority of students, especially after the Sir George Williams computer burning incident in February 1969. These three subgroups overlap and over time converged. They were not competing factions, certainly not in this period. It is more accurate to say these were three tendencies, which most individuals drew upon to varying degrees to constitute their personal political awareness.

Although political science borrows heavily from the other social sciences , it is distinguished from them by its focus on power —defined as the ability of one political actor to get another actor to do what it wants—at the international, national, and local levels. Political science is generally used in the singular, but in French and Spanish the plural (sciences politiques and ciencias políticas, respectively) is used, perhaps a reflection of the discipline’s eclectic nature. Although political science overlaps considerably with political philosophy , the two fields are distinct. Political philosophy is concerned primarily with political ideas and values, such as rights, justice , freedom, and political obligation (whether people should or should not obey political authority); it is normative in its approach (i.e., it is concerned with what ought to be rather than with what is) and rationalistic in its method. In contrast, political science studies institutions and behaviour, favours the descriptive over the normative, and develops theories or draws conclusions based on empirical observations, which are expressed in quantitative terms where possible. Commonwealth – a nation, state, or other political entity founded on law and united by a compact of the people for the common good. One of the best books I have read about the philosophical developments in constitutional and political thinking about the relationship between government and business. This should be a seminar coursebook, but it is also an engaging read for the general public. Essential reading on the hottest topic today. First, Chávez was famously charismatic — a once-in-a-generation kind of political charmer with an extraordinary ability to persuade people from all different backgrounds to join his cause. Having grown up as a poor child in the Venezuelan countryside, Chávez had an organic and intuitive connection with the poor and working-class citizens he came to champion. A savvy politician, he cobbled together a coalition of leftists, military officers, broad swaths of the middle class, and Venezuela’s long-neglected poor. Some states have preserved the status of common-law offenses for their criminal codes, while others have abolished common law and written most of the common-law principles into statutes. Some states are still using both common and statutory law. I further quoted, from the public record, that AOC says ALL Latinos on Earth have the RIGHT to come live in in America. AOC says immigration laws should not apply to the 550,000,000 Latinos who live south of our border. AOC is probably the most oft quoted Democrat in your party.
