    Deep down I find this satisfying, I use to live in Portland and this is deserving for all the crap that goes on there. When Kristallnacht happens, it will probably be in Portland.

Užupis declared itself independent from Lithuania on April 1st, 1997; however, this is no April Fool’s joke. The tiny republic, which covers less than one square kilometer, has a president, foreign affairs minister, passport stamps, currency, and of course a constitution. To truly understand the quirky nature of Užupis, here is the constitution in full:

    Right, Mexico came as the middle player in claiming the Southwest. First were the Native Americans, Then came Spain claiming land from what today is Mexico all the way to California in what was called "New Spain". Mexico gained independence from Spain and even wanted to cede it away (along with Texas) to settle debts. Then came the U.S. and the rest is history as they say. During the Spanish colonial era, the Californias (i.e., the Baja California peninsula and Alta California) were sparsely settled. After Mexico became independent, it shut down the missions and reduced its military presence. In 1842, the US minister in Mexico, Waddy Thompson Jr., suggested Mexico might be willing to cede Alta California to settle debts, saying: "As to Texas, I regard it as of very little value compared with California, the richest, the most beautiful, and the healthiest country in the world ... with the acquisition of Upper California we should have the same ascendency on the Pacific ... France and England both have had their eyes upon it." US President John Tyler's administration suggested a tripartite pact that would settle the Oregon boundary dispute and provide for the cession of the port of San Francisco from Mexico. Lord Aberdeen declined to participate but said Britain had no objection to U.S. territorial acquisition there. The British minister in Mexico, Richard Pakenham, wrote in 1841 to Lord Palmerston urging "to establish an English population in the magnificent Territory of Upper California", saying that "no part of the World offering greater natural advantages for the establishment of an English colony ... by all means desirable ... that California, once ceasing to belong to Mexico, should not fall into the hands of any power but England ... daring and adventurous speculators in the United States have already turned their thoughts in this direction." But by the time the letter reached London, Sir Robert Peel's Tory government, with its Little England policy, had come to power and rejected the proposal as expensive and a potential source of conflict. A significant number of influential Californios were in favor of annexation, either by the United States or by the United Kingdom. Pío de Jesús Pico IV, the last governor of Alta California, was in favor of British annexation. https://www.nps.gov/parkhistory/online_books/5views/5views5.htm

    https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/465591-new-california-law-bans-school-lunch-debt-shaming California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has signed into law a measure that guarantees students will receive state-funded lunches regardless of whether their parents or guardians have unpaid meal fees. The bill, which was spearheaded by state Sen. Robert Hertzberg (D), prohibits so-called lunch shaming, a practice in which institutions deny students with unpaid fees a meal of their choice. It also seeks to ensure that a student "is not shamed or treated differently from other pupils" for having unpaid lunch debts. "Creating a 'California for All' means ensuring schools are inclusive, accepting, and welcoming of all kids," Newsom said in a statement before crediting Napa County elementary school student Ryan Kyote for bringing national attention to the issue. The law amends the Child Hunger Prevention and Fair Treatment Act of 2017 by requiring school districts, charter schools and education agencies to invalidate policies that ask officials to give alternative meals to students with unpaid fees. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) in June introduced the No Shame at School Act, which would bar any kind of identification of students who cannot pay for lunch at school. “Across this country, students whose families are struggling to afford school meals are being singled out and humiliated at lunchtime,” Omar said at the time. “These students are subjected to various shaming practices at schools. Some students have been literally branded with stamps.”

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/caravan-2-000-head-toward-190038904.html TAPACHULA, Mexico (AP) — Mexican officials broke up a caravan of around 2,000 migrants that had set out from southern Mexico Saturday in the hopes of reaching the United States, amid increasing difficulty obtaining permission to pass through Mexico. Many of the migrants who departed from Tapachula, Chiapas early in the morning had been held up in this city just north of Guatemala for weeks or months, awaiting residency or transit papers from Mexican authorities. The migrants are originally from Central America, Africa and the Caribbean. They left their home countries sometimes because of violence, or simply in search of a better life. "I want to pass through Mexico, I don't want to live here," said Amado Ramirez, a migrant from Honduras who said he had been living on the streets of Tapachula with his young children and wife, hoping for a transit visa from Mexican officials. "We're at a standstill." Hundreds of African migrants, in particular, have been stuck for months in Tapachula, where they say immigration authorities have stalled on giving them residency or transit papers. Almost all of them want to seek asylum in the United States, rather than stay in Mexico. The migrants have engaged in scuffles with police at the Tapachula immigration offices in recent weeks. Mexico says they can stay in southern Mexico, or leave by the southern border, but the migrants want documents that will allow them to reach the northern border. Mexico frequently repatriates, by plane, migrants from countries such as Cuba and Honduras.

    https://elpais.com/elpais/2019/10/11/inenglish/1570777802_689645.html All 12 individuals were tried at the Supreme Court in Madrid earlier this year at a high-profile trial involving four months of hearings and testimony from around 400 witnesses. The ruling will be made public early next week, and it is expected that the seven justices who heard the case have sought a unanimous decision. The defendants It is believed that at least nine convictions will be handed down because nine defendants remain in custody after being arrested in late October 2017, but penalties will vary depending on each defendant’s participation in the secession attempt. The crime of rebellion requires an element of violence, and in this particular case, it had to be proven that the defendants instigated violence as a tool to achieve independence from Spain. According to legal sources briefed on the matter, the court has found that the defendants did not commit these actions.

    For a small bank, OneUnited has had remarkable pull in Washington: In 2008, Barney Frank, then the most powerful Democrat in the House on banking issues, said that he wrote a provision into the bailout bill to ensure the bank was rescued. (The bank is based in Massachusetts, Frank’s home state.) Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., later faced ethics charges alleging that she had interceded on the bank’s behalf with Treasury Department officials — a potential violation because her husband held stock in the bank and had formerly been a board member. Waters was subsequently cleared of those charges.

    No, I think it boils down to a lack of responsibility. The less responsible you are for your life and everything in it, the more your willing to let the government control it. Conversely, the less control government has the more responsible one needs to be. This applies to corporations as well.

The State's Attorney General's Office in Tuxtla Gutiérre said in a news release that the incident happened early Tuesday in the town of Las Margaritas, when a group of people stormed Mayor Jorge Luis Escandón Hernández's office and caused damage to real estate, in addition to assaulting him. The angry group of farmers was demanding the mayor build a road he promised to construct during his campaign, Mexican news outlet Excelsior reported.
