American Law

Okay, I've just been discussing things with people, and I want to know what everybody thinks about these things.
When I bring this stuff up everybody thinks I'm stupid and wrong, when I try to say that the laws aren't what they think they are like.....

The Age of Consent is not 18. It varies by each state.
STATE
AGE
Alabama 16
Alaska 16
Arizona 18
Arkansas 16
California 18
Colorado 15
Connecticut 15
D.C. 16
Delaware 16
Florida 16/18 (bill pending)
Georgia 16
Hawaii 14
Idaho 14
Illinois 16/17
Indiana 16
Iowa 18
Kansas 16
Kentucky 16
Louisiana 17
Maine 16
Maryland 16
Massachusetts 16/18
Michigan 16
Minnesota 16
Mississippi 16
Missouri 17
Montana 16
Nebraska 16
Nevada 16
New Hampshire 16/18
New Jersey 16/18
New Mexico 17
New York 17
North Carolina 16
North Dakota 18
Ohio 16
Oklahoma 16
Oregon 18
Pennsylvania 16
Rhode Island 16
South Carolina 14/16
South Dakota 16
Tennessee 18
Texas 17
Utah 16/18
Vermont 16
Virginia 15
Washington 16
West Virginia 16
Wisconsin 18
Wyoming 16
Puerto Rico 18

And for many states such as West Virginia, it's 16 and four years apart. So a 15 year old can mate with and 18 year old and it's not illegal.

Also, the constitution says there is no official language, but language is regulated by the states in the US.


Dark Blue=English is the Official Language
Light Blue=No Official Language
Purple=Multiple Official Languages
Pink=No Official Language, multiple De Facto Languages

Lastly, it is my understanding that you do not have to be born in the United States to become president.

The constitution does not mention it. It states you have to be born a natrual born citizen not a native born citizen.

I was born in the nation of Algeria, and from the moment I was born I was a full American Citizen because my mother was American.

Here is the rule: If you are born abroad to 2 parents with US citizenship, then you have to live in the US for 14 consecutive years before you could run for president (and meet all other criteria).

If you are born abroad to one parent with US citizenship, you have to live in the US for 14 consecutive years and your parent has to have lived in the US for 9 consecutive years. Barack Obama meets this. So even if he was born in Kenya, he would still be eligible to be president. Also, John McCain was not born in the US. He claims to have been born on a military base, but according to his birth certificate he was born in Colon Hospital, in Colon Panama. However, he is still eligible to run for office.

Soruce: The Internet

QATFYG: Is any of this correct? The reason I ask is because the media and television never acknowledges any of this. I've read it a thousand times online, but not even anyone I know thinks these laws to be true. They think states have no official languages, the national age of consent is 18, and you have to born on American soil to be president. PS I will delete this after a while because it's too big to keep around. That's what she said.

  1. First, you spelled source wrong when citing the internet. Second I am glad that you mentioned the bit about citizenship and the president. I find it bizarre that there are even specifics about having only 1 American parent. It should not matter whether both parents are American or if only one is. It only matters that you were born a citizen. That is the definition of natural born. This is very important, because for many reasons a person might be born aboard, and said person deserves his or her rights. Thirdly, I feel the general sentiment towards age of consent is thought to be 16. I get the sense from the media that they accept 16 as the primary age of consent, which it is in many states. However, I can understand why people would say 18. Many rights are achieved at 18, and the age of consent across the nation is not above 18.

  2. anon,

    I spelled Source wrong on purpose. prove that i didn't.

    PS: I am surprised to hear u think the media refers to age of consent as 16. Everything I've seen states it as 18. and all the people i know state it as 18, even though it varies by states. The only media I saw that acknowledged the state laws was on LAW and ORDER SVU, where they referred to it as 17.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

RIP Andy Warpigs

If you're even vaguely familiar with the Phoenix music scene to any extent, you probably knew Andy Warpigs. I saw them a few times at Yucca/Time Out Lounge when I was frequenting both spots a few years ago. Andy Warpigs was one of the most ubiquitous names you could come across, and with good reason - they were an incredibly prolific and talented artist, basically a Phoenix legend.  Unfortunately, over the weekend Andy Warpigs passed away - an extremely tragic loss. If you can possibly donate to the GoFundMe to help Andy's mom with funeral expenses , please do so.  Take care, Britt
