The Origins of the Necessary and Proper Clause
 
by
Gary Lawson

The Necessary and Proper Clause is one of the most important parts of the U.S. Constitution. Today this short thirty-nine word paragraph is cited as the legal foundation for much of the modern federal government. Yet constitutional scholars have pronounced its origins and original meaning a mystery. Through three independent lines of research, the authors trace the lineage of the Necessary and Proper Clause to the everyday law of the Founding Era the same law that American founders such as Madison, Hamilton, and Washington applied in their daily lives. Origins of the Necessary and Proper Clause are found in law governing agencies, public administration, and corporations. Moreover, all of those areas were undergirded by common principles of fiduciary responsibility reflecting the Founders view that a public office is truly a public trust. This explains the choice of language in the clause and provides clues about its meaning. This book thus serves as a reference source for scholars seeking to understand the intellectual foundations of one of the Constitution s most important clauses.

„Musteste in Sandip mult adevar, multa senzualitate, multa falsitate; carnea il infasa in cruste groase! Si totusi, trebuie sa marturisesc ca exista in interiorul lui o multime de lucruri pe care n-am sti sa le intelegem - inlauntrul lui si inlauntrul nostru al tuturor. Ce minunantie e omul! Numai Teribilul stie ce planuri misterioase a implinit; si totusi, nu putem decat sa ne tanguim. Shiva este zeul haosului. El este numai bucurie. El va distruge legaturile servitutii noastre.Am simtit totdeauna ca exista doua fiinte in mine. Una se retrage din fata laturii teribile si haotice a lui Sandip, cealalta se complace, ca in fata unei privelisti incantatoare. Un vapor care se scufunda ii soarbe cu el pe toti cei care inoata in jur. Aceasta este forta distructiva a lui Sandip.”

Family, Faith, Land and Mysticism: The Spiritual Traveler Myth

  10/02/2012       sp4wnrk2      0 Comments

This historical narrative is a story about the inherent and sustaining personal power found in American culture. World War II survivors were able to navigate and balance spiritual awareness and political reality. In the small town of Toms River located in the New Jersey Pinelands Reserve a small clique of believers lived from 1940s, with different religious background, held clear and concise spiritual teaching that mystical events were not confined to religious practice alone. Once understood, mysticism could be used to rearrange physical events, the environment, fate, even politics. To discover it and unlock its complicated code a person needs to understand the context in which these events occur. This book offers a fascinating picture of the spiritual journey through the real life experiences of a rural family. It begins with a genealogy description of the family, their friends, and activities. On the farm a boy begins his initiation as he is mentored by community members in family life, the conflicts and subtlety of faith, his relationship to nature and the sustaining even protecting nuances of ancient Biblical intervention. Soon after leaving home he realizes he is in a real life test that could take his life. Does he carry yet another mutation of the spiritual traveler? In the background of the story are religious, typical, right wing believers such as fundamentalists who wish to take land and wealth. Over a period of years he goes to war himself like his tutors observing and receiving divine protection, fatalism and contradiction. While in combat his path crosses with those of the Cao Dai, Catholicism, and Buddhist monks. These events serve as the basis for the biggest challenge yet to come as he enters maturity and is tested. It is uncertain whether he will be able to invoke the teachings of his initial mentors and alter his fate as it becomes intertwined in a conflict against political and spiritual foe. Does he solve his problems by force? What does he do to survive? The bigg

First, this book is unique in subject. Dr. Wayne Baker is reporting a surprising truth about Americans: We are united by 10 Core Values. This truth is empowering because it enables us to rise above and see beyond political polarization, Washington gridlock, the imagery of Red/Blue states, and the rhetoric of culture wars and class warfare. In these pages, Dr. Baker shows how Americans agree on a surprising number of principles, based on years of nonpartisan, scientifically balanced polling and research. Second, this book is exceptional in its format, designed for individual reading and flexible use in classes, small groups and other settings where men and women enjoy civil discussion about the urgent issues of our day. Educators and business leaders will find this book very useful, partly because it is so easy to adapt for your setting. You may choose to read it cover to cover or tailor it to your particular interests and preferences. You can select the chapters and values you are most eager to read about and read them in any order. Within each chapter you will find topics to contemplate and discuss, along with questions that will stimulate reflection and respectful discussion about a value, what it means, and the challenges of applying it. Dr. Baker defines a Core American Value as a value that is strongly held by a large majority of Americans, stable over time, and shared across diverse demographic, religious, and political lines. A core value is not a prescription of what Americans ought to believe, but what Americans actually do believe. The meaning of core values can be seized, manipulated, and wielded by either side of the political aisle. This book is an attempt to reclaim the concept of core values from those who would usurp it, and make it a more neutral term. The idea that we share certain basic values is valuable and empowering-its an insight that can bridge political chasms rather than deepen them.

Er ist ein Mann in den besten Jahren, der sein berufliches und privates Leben voll unter Kontrolle hat – bis zu dem Moment, in dem ihm seine freudige Ehefrau eröffnet, dass er Großvater wird: Seine Tochter erwartet ein Kind. War sie nicht vor Kurzem selber noch ein kleines Mädchen? Die Nachricht vom erwarteten Enkelkind stellt das Leben des Erzählers auf den Kopf. Die hoffnungsvolle Ehefrau kauft Kinderkleider und Matruschka-Puppen; der Umzug von Tochter und Schwiegertochter ins elterliche Haus muss organisiert werden; und seit die hämische Ehefrau ihn immer wieder als „Opa“ betitelt, entdeckt er im Spiegel plötzlich Fältchen und graue Haare. Und dann kommt der lange erwartete Tag, an dem die besonnene Ehefrau anruft, er solle doch den Koffer B ins Krankenhaus bringen, die Tochter habe beim Einkaufen Wehen bekommen ... Für alle, die ein Enkelkind erwarten, ist diese heitere und treffende Satire die ideale Einstimmung. Und Sprachfüchse können auf Jagd nach all den Eigenschaften der Ehefrau gehen, die mit immer wieder anderen Adjektiven beschrieben sind – oder sind doch zwei gleiche dabei?
