I argue that it is necessary for families to be able to stay in their rentals. Landlords and developers can handle it and the focus should be on streamlining the red tape in permitting construction and re-construction.
Fox News at Night with guest host Mike Emanuel invited me back on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 along with former Bush Assistant Attorney General and Cal Law Professor John Yoo.
President Trump has ordered White House officials to launch a sweeping effort to address homelessness in California, citing the state’s growing crisis, according to four government officials aware of the effort.
I suggested conservatives stop giving cover to white supremacists. I also suggested Pastor Jeffress and I read from the same bible and should focus on grace, love, and acceptance. Because that’s what Jesus said.
The discussion went into morals, which I countered by citing Western Europes lower religiosity but far lower mass shootings, and then video games where I cited South Korea far outspending us on violent video games, but again orders of magnitude lower mass shootings.
The king is not saved by a great army, nor a warrior rescued by great might.
The horse is a false guarantee for victory; with all its great strength it offers no escape.
And Christians, Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
None of this was possible without the love, the support, the guidance of my out-of-this-world wife, my partner, my soulmate, my greatest supporter & inspiration, my love, Amy. Without her I would’ve never thought I could go to law school. I wouldn’t have taken the LSAT. We wouldn’t have moved to Los Angeles. I wouldn’t have started this difficult climb of going to evening law school. I wouldn’t have been able to study and take my exams. Thank you, My Love.
Further, my children were part of all of this. They knew why their papa was gone so many nights and Sundays. Why I needed to miss certain events for class or exams. They were always supportive and even cheered me on. I hope when they are older they’ll notice the example I set with hard work and dedication to improve my life and our lives.
Also, the professors and fellow students in the evening program deserve great credit. Professors had to put up with my enjoyment of the Socratic method, dedicate evenings to share their astounding wealth of knowledge, and commit themselves to our success. My fellow evening students, I’m in awe. They came from diverse backgrounds, worked their butts off, and unlike many law school traditions we all worked together, helped each other, and supported one another through this grueling and rewarding process.
Additionally, I’d also like to thank all of my other friends, family, and everyone else who were incredibly supportive through this process.
Finally, I’d like to thank God (the Universe, or whomever or whatever you might call a higher power) for blessing me with all of the above and the strength to make it through.
Worse, we continue to alter the chemistry of our atmosphere and waters in ways that will have real consequences.
We are now at > 405 parts per million carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the highest in over 800,000 years. Over the past 150+ years, the pH of surface ocean waters has fallen by ~0.1. Since the pH scale, like the Richter scale, is logarithmic, that 0.1 drop represents a 30% increase in acidity. As we continue to pump CO² increasing the concentration, the ocean will continue to acidify, dramatically changing life.
It’s time to aggressively move to renewable energy sources like geothermal, hydropower, wind, solar, and yes advanced nuclear.
Fox News @ Night invited me back to join Shannon Bream on Friday, August 17, 2018. My fellow panelist was Nicki Neily, President of a group called Free Speech.
Our topic was the need for free speech and debate on college campuses today. There is a new movement to get people with opposing views together and work to open communication.
I argue, again, for insensitivity training so feelings aren’t hurt so easily. Plus the fact this really isn’t that different from 20 years ago.
I also pointed out that it’s fun for the right to pick on college students regarding the First Amendment, yet ~40% of Republicans (it’s actually 43%) want the President to have the power to shut down media they don’t like.
And, I very intentionally brought up the need for another James Baldwin vs. William F. Buckley, Jr. debate at Cambridge in 1965 where an eloquent man of color decimated WFB in front of a white crowd, on the topic of racism.
My reference to administrative law is based on a number of factors related to the state creating a property right of a license (for example liquor) and requiring complete administrative due process before revocation.
None of this excuses a closer look at why over 4 million people have security clearances, some of which may have no reason to still have one.
