“When I read the judgement of my parent’s divorce, I was fascinated by the power of the judge to save lives and grant freedom to people using something called “the law”. I knew that this was the super-power that I would like to possess when I grew up. Therefore, before moving to Hungary I completed my Bachelors degree in Legal Studies at the Faculty of Law “Iustinian Primus” – Skopje. Many people would think that, based on my looks and intelligence, I was never discriminated against or bullied because of my Roma ethnicity. The reality is that, no matter how smart, educated, and talented we are, each of us still faces stereotypes and discrimination on a daily basis. In my personal case, I even experienced multiple levels of discrimination for being a Romani Muslim woman.”

A morality based on slavish obedience, to laws or to gods, makes pliant dogs of able men. True morality springs forth from dark wells deep within, comes flashing down from atop the high mountain - it cannot be passed from hand to hand or mouth to ear; it must be lived, breathed, dwelled within, until its essence suffuses the being entire. True morality is the living truth, expressed in word and deed. The moral man does not obey, he acts; for he himself is that living truth.

I find most “acab” sentiments to be disingenuous or completely unintelligible from anyone that’s like still subscribing to a carceral justice model, because like… who’s gonna be running that? Who’s putting people there? What’s that process, and who is in charge of it? Demanding the abolition of the judiciary while keeping prisons in place seems like a *less* transparent and publicly accountable system to me.

“Occultism is the ancient science which deals with the hidden forces of nature, the laws governing them, and the means by which such forces can be brought under the control of the enlightened human mind.

An occultist is one who believes in the reality of esoteric sciences, has studied them in a scholarly manner, has resolved to perfect his own consciousness according to their rules, and may, or may not, be able to practice the rituals and formulas of Transcendental Magic. “

Das Schloss Bellevue in Berlin’s Tiergarten district has been the official residence of the President of Germany since 1994. It’s situated on the banks of the river Spree, near the Victory Column, along the edge of the Tiergarten. Its name (French for ‘beautiful view’) derives from its scenic views over the river.

The President of Germany (der Bundespräsident) has more of a representative and ceremonial role similar to that of the English Queen, since Germany has a parliamentary system of government in which the Chancellor (currently Angela Merkel) is the nation’s leading political figure and de facto chief executive. The President gives direction to general political and societal debates and has some important “reserve powers” in case of political instability. Under Article 59 of the Basic Law (German Constitution), the President represents the Federal Republic of Germany in matters of international law, concludes treaties with foreign states, and accredits diplomats. All federal laws must be signed by the President before they come into effect, but usually he or she only vetoes a law that he/she believes to violate the constitution. The current Bundespräsident since 2012 is Joachim Gauck.

anonymous asked:

Can I get a HC with Ace, Law, Smoker, Luffy, and Zoro reacting to being teased by their s/o with the following phrase; "And here we see the wild (character) in their natural habitat-- Shit. I've been spotted." Please? (Love your blog, by the way. .o.)

Awwwww, thank you, that’s so sweet~  <3 <3 <3
I love requests like these. They always manage to make me laugh/smile.

LOL
These are going to be a little short.

Being teased by their S/O headcanons:

Phrase: “And here we see the wild (their name) in their natural habitat– SHIT, I’ve been spotted!”

Ace:

  • Confused at first with what his s/o is doing, then a huge smile breaks out on his face.
  • Starts laughing, ESPECIALLY once they’ve been spotted.
  • Gives chase.
  • But ends up falling asleep and falling on either his face, or his s/o.
  • Once he wakes up though, going to catch his s/o.
  • Probably starts a tickle war. Or cuddles.

Smoker, Law, and Zoro:

  • “What the hell are you doing?”
  • Do not recommend, they won’t understand.
  • Gives you a “WTF” face.
  • MIGHT wonder/ask if you’re feeling unwell.
  • If Zoro’s napping, he’ll just give a look and just go right back to sleep.
  • Smoker may say/think, “I don’t have time for this.” And probably compares them to his unit/others in G5 (Or was it G6? Basically his subordinates)
  • If Law was feeling playful, he’d have an automatic win. Because he’ll use his DF’s “ROOM”. And yes, smirking like the little shit that he is.

Luffy:

  • Omg, this poor baby. SO CONFUSED.
  • Tilts his head to the side, and all ?????????????????
  • Does not understand.
  • If his s/o tries to hide/run after being spotted, he’d think that they’re either being weird, or wanting to play tag/hide and seek.

Okay, so…Trump won. And I’m never gonna not be worried about everybody, really.

But I need you all to know that threatening harm to the President of the United States is a class E felony under United States law and can get you investigated by the Secret Service, arrested, put on trial, and even put in jail. Even comments that you make online can carry this punishment. I know everyone’s angry, but please don’t do anything that could get you put in jail.

Donald Trump has been president for two weeks, and he is already facing dozens of lawsuits over White House policies and his personal business dealings. That’s far more than his predecessors faced in their first days on the job. The lawsuits started on Inauguration Day, and they haven’t let up.

Most of the 50-plus lawsuits filed so far relate to the travel ban on refugees and nationals from seven mostly-Muslim countries that Trump ordered on Jan. 27. They were filed in 17 different states by doctors, professors, students, people fleeing violence and Iraqis who have worked for the U.S. military. Some were detained in American airports for hours over the weekend; others were barred overseas from boarding planes bound for the U.S. Two Syrian brothers with visas to enter the country say they were turned around at Philadelphia International Airport and sent back to Damascus.

Robert Doggart won’t face terrorism charges for plotting to burn down a NY mosque

  • Robert Doggart, 65, was arrested for plotting to attack and burn down a mosque, school and cafeteria in a predominant Muslim community in upstate New York in April 2015.
  • On Tuesday, less than one year since his arrest, the New York Daily News reported that Doggart won’t face terrorism charges for his plot. 
  • Doggart faces “one count of solicitation to commit arson, one count of solicitation to commit a civil rights violation and two counts of threat in interstate commerce.”
  • Why won’t he face terrorism charges? The United States does not have a federal statute on domestic terrorism. 
  • According to Rafia Zakaria, a human rights attorney, federal statutes on terrorism are — ironically — designed in language to deliberately criminalize foreign suspects.
  • The U.S. federal law statute on terrorism almost entirely targets individuals with foreign ties or alliances. Read more (2/14/17 3:27 PM)
