Separation of Powers and Checks and Balances: Crash Course Government and Politics #3

In which Craig Benzine teaches you about the US Governments Separation of powers and the system of checks and balances. In theory, the Legislative Branch, the Executive Branch, and the Judicial Brach are designed to keep each other in check, and to keep any branch from becoming too powerful. In reality, the system was designed to keep the president from becoming some kind of autocrat. For the most part, it has worked. Craig will call in the clones to explain which powers belong to which branches, and to reveal some secret perks that the Supreme Court justices enjoy.

What if I were to offer you a sure-fire investment that would, if implemented properly, guarantee to at least double or triple your money in 3-4 years. The investment is so simple and straightforward – you could be completely hands off. You would not have to do a thing. It would require no monitoring of a fund or stocks – not even a yearly review, such as a mutual fund or IRA.

It would require nothing but an initial investment. Then just sit back and let others do the work. In a few years, reap the reward.

Okay – you may be saying – where do I sign? And by the way – what’s the investment?
Well – the investment is a pipe dream. It’s not real. There is no real investment which is that easy and simultaneously sure fire. Or is there?

Trying to find affordable and reliable care for your children while you are working is one of the biggest challenges you will face as a single mother.  Unless your children are already of high school age and can be trusted to be left alone after school, one of the biggest out of pocket expenses you will face as a single mother is child care and after school care or daycare. 

What’s worse is that, even if you could afford to send your child to daycare, most of the best daycare centers and preschools have waiting lists that are years long!  Unless you are lucky enough to have family or friends who are available to and willing to baby sit for you for free, finding the money to pay for daycare is going to be a challenge.  Thankfully there is government daycare assistance for single moms.  Here is how to find single mothers government assistance for daycare.

The first place you should look for government day care assistance for single moms is your employer.  Larger companies will often provide child care to employees or be part of a building co-op that offers low cost child care to those who work in the building.  Even better, there are many government programs that offer grants to companies and businesses that offer affordable childcare to employees or that provide their employees with financial assistance to help make daycare more affordable.  Ask your manager or supervisor if the company can offer you any assistance in finding affordable childcare.

The churches in your neighborhood (or near where you work) might also be able to provide you with some assistance.  Churches are another type of organization that gets grants to help provide affordable health care to those who need it.  If you are seeking government daycare assistance for single moms, you should ask your pastor or call your local church for advice.  Even if that church does not have daycare facilities on site, they might be able to refer you to someone that you can afford!

Your town’s social services office is another place to go if you are in need of help finding affordable day care and you are single mothers.  Government assistance for daycare is available and social workers are experts on the subject!  A social worker will know which daycare facilities in your area are the most affordable and know which programs offer government daycare assistance for single moms. 

Finally, the government websites (.gov) of your town and state will have information on government daycare assistance for single moms.  The federal government is also very interested in helping single mothers.  Government assistance for daycare information can be found by doing a search for information on just about any .gov website.  The most relevant information for you, however, will most likely be found on your local .gov websites. 

There is help available if you are looking for government daycare assistance for single moms.  In our country, we revere single mothers. Government assistance for daycare is just one way that we show it.

Pieter West travels the world on a regular basis and have written about numerous subjects. He has an extensive knowledge about, finances, DIY, parenting advice and many more subjects.

So today, Craig is finally going to start talking about politics. Now up until this point we’ve specifically been looking at government – that is answering the questions of who, what, and how in relation to policies. But politics is different in that it looks at why certain policies are made. We’re going to start today by looking at public opinion – specifically how the public does (and does not) influence our elected officials.

10 Things to Know About Unit 8

S. Jagdish Singh Garcha was born to S. Kehar Singh and Sardarni Harnam Kaur in the year 1934 in a small village “Bhutta” located in Tehsil Ahmedgarh of Distt. Ludhiana & did Matriculation from Govt. Sen. Sec. School Ghawadh.S. Jagdish Singh Garcha and his family took on to agriculture in 1952 & later in 1958 he joined as a Supervisor at the then under-construction dam at Bhakhra Nangal where he worked for almost 3 years. Aushadialya. Subsequently, he decided to set-up his own business & began with a marginal share with a liquor vendor at villageMaloud.The earning and savings grew many folds which resulted in restructuring of the farming set up of the family & the use of modern and latest farming equipments helped agriculture flourish in the year to come increasing agricultural outcome to a great extent. Then in the year 1968 S. Jagdish Singh Garcha took up a business opportunity as a dealer in cattle and poultry feed at Dasua in Hoshiarpur Distt., the business grew and he also started his own feed mill at Sahnewal. Meanwhile, his younger brother S. Sukhdev Singh Garchawho was till then pursuing his education in SCDGovt.College, Ludhiana also joined him. The business grew leaps & bounds by hard work and honesty & turned into a big Enterprise which had farm houses with a capacity of 1 lac birds and a hatchery at Malerkotla. During that period, S. Jagdish Singh Garcha was also elected as the Sarpanch of his village in 1980.

 

S. Parkash Singh Badal insisted and persuaded S. Jagdish Singh Garcha to contest election. S. Jagdish Singh Garcha contested his first election to Legislative Assembly from Kila Raipur Assembly segment. As he successfully conducted his duties as an MLA, S. Jagdish Singh Garcha was promoted as a Cabinet Minister in the state government led by S. Parkash Singh Badal & was assigned the portfolio of Technical Education and S. Jagdish Singh Garcha worked as the Technical Education Ministertill 2002. When S. Jagdish Singh Garcha took charge as the Technical Education Minister, there were only five Colleges under PTU, which was established under the Congress regime headed by Smt. Rajinder Kaur Bhathal, Chief Minister of Punjab under legislative Act, and is an autonomous body as well as the only one of its kind in Punjab, recognized by UGC with all Engineering, Management & Pharmacy colleges of Punjab affiliated to it.

 

PTU as it was supposed to generate its own resources through intellectual & resource sharing programs. The Director of Technical Education wished to launch Learning Centers ofPunjab Technical University Jalandhar, but Secretary of Technical Education was not willing to seek permission from the study centre of IIT Delhi. At that time, the Technical Minister gave the authority to Director of Technical Education to run such institutes which were established keeping in view all prescribed norms. Due to conflict between Secretary and Director there was a delay of 7-10 months in the commencement of courses in these institutes but in spite of all these hurdles, the learning centers attracted huge crowds of students & these centers contributed immensely towards gross income of PTU. The share of PTU in the income generated by learning centers is more than what most of the 13 universities running such DEP’s have. The PTU has revenue sharing model of 30-25-45 (that is PTU, Service provider & Study Centre) which earned Rs. 12.60 CR for the university in the very first year & improved its financial condition to a great extent. The university owes the benefit of profit to the decision of Board of Governors of University which was then headed by S. Jagdish Singh Garcha.

Jagdish Singh Garcha also developed CrownTownwhich is a 100 ACRE Residential Colony at Lalton Kalan, on the outskirts of Ludhiana City and gives an opportunity to the Ludhianvi’s to live in a pollution free & serene environment.

S. JS Garcha is the auther of this article. He is the  Formar Minister Punjab Government. The village of S. Jagdish Singh Garcha is “Bhutta” located in Tehsil Ahmedgarh of Distt. Ludhiana. He did Matriculation from Govt. Sen. Sec. School Ghawadhi. S. Jagdish Singh Ji and his family took on to agriculture in 1952 & later in 1958 he joined as a Supervisor at the then under-construction dam at Bhakhra Nangal where he worked for almost 3 years.

I’m tired of being told I have to “spread the wealth’ to people who don’t have my work ethic.

.

I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned by force if necessary & give it to people too lazy to earn it.

.

I’m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes.”

 

I;m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes, to keep business from failing because of their greed and bad business ethic.

.

I’m tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros & Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers.

.

I’m tired of being told Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives & daughters for their family “honor”, of Muslims rioting over some slight offense of Muslims murdering Christian & Jews because they aren’t “believers”; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Koran & Sharia law tells them to.

.

I’m tired of being told “race doesn’t matter” when it’s all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission & graduation standards for minorities, government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence & fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, & in the appointment of the U.S. Senator from Illinois.

.

I’m tired of a liberal news media that thinks Bush’s fund raising & inaugural expenses were obscene, but think Obama’s, at triple the cost, were wonderful.

.

I’m tired of a liberal news media that thinks Bush exercising daily was a waste of presidential time, but Obama exercising is a great example for the public to control weight & stress.

.

I’m tired of a liberal news media that picked over every line of Bush’s military records but never demanded that Kerry release his.

.

I’m tired of a liberal news media that picked over every line of Bush’s college records but never demanded Obama release his.

.

I’m tired of a liberal news media that slammed Palin, with 2 years as governor, for being too inexperienced for VP, but touted Obama with 3 years as senator as potentially the best president ever.

.

I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques & madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America, while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love & tolerance.

.

I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My family’s carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore’s.

.

I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support & treat them, & pay for the damage they do.

.

I’m tired of illegal aliens being called “undocumented workers or immigrants,” especially the ones who aren’t working but are living on welfare or crime.

.

I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement.

.

I’m tired of people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs & cell phones called poor. The majority of Americans didn’t have that in 1970, but we didn’t know we were “poor.” The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.

.

I’m real tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives & actions.

 

Powell’s Thoughts

http://powells-thoughts.com/

There is a time from 1781 to 1789 our government had also excised each year a new president ( for a total of 7 presidents prior to George Washington). This was also a growing time for our nation. This is very important time for all to understand our constitution. To understand what the constitution was to do. While also limit the size of government. You must understand these articles before you can understand the job the constitution was to do. You may disagree, but it is like one who does not understand division and trying to do algebra. The algebra strength is a strong understanding of all basic math functions. SO IS IT SO WITH OUR CONSTITUTION!!! TO UNDERSTAND OUR CONSTITUTION AND THE JOB IT MUST FOREFILL. YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THE ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION AND HOW IT HAD FAILED.

When it became apparent that government under the Articles of Confederation was, in the words of George Washington, little more than the shadow without the substance, agitation for a stronger federal government began. This agitation resulted in the Annapolis Convention of 1786 and the Federal Constitutional Convention of 1787, which drafted the Constitution of the United States from 1786 through 1789 is the time it took to make and have the Constitution of United States of America to become the supreme law of this nation. Actually if you consider the birth of the government of 1781 to 1789 is the actual time it took for you constitution to be developed.

The full episode of VICE on HBO’s ‘State of Surveillance’ is available to stream for free on VICE News.

When NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden leaked details of massive government surveillance programs in 2013, he ignited a raging debate over digital privacy and security. That debate came to a head this year, when Apple refused an FBI court order to access the iPhone of alleged San Bernardino Terrorist Syed Farook. Meanwhile, journalists and activists are under increasing attack from foreign agents. To find out the government’s real capabilities, and whether any of us can truly protect our sensitive information, VICE founder Shane Smith heads to Moscow to meet the man who started the conversation, Edward Snowden.

This week Craig looks at the expressed powers of the President of the United States – that is the ones you can find in the Constitution. From appointing judges and granting pardons, to vetoing laws and acting as the nation’s chief diplomat on foreign policy, the Commander in Chief is a pretty powerful person, but actually not as powerful as you might think. The Constitution also limits presidential powers to maintain balance among the three branches of government. Next week we’ll talk about the president’s powers NOT mentioned in the Constitution – implied powers.
