EssayQuarryingAgainstHB2Legislation 94%

Essay Quarrying Against HB2 Legislation    Dear North Carolina General Assembly and North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory,    Attached to the following essay are the signatures of parents, students, teachers, and staff  members of Lake Norman Charter School in Huntersville, North Carolina.1  We, signed below, extend our belief in the principles of acceptance, inclusion, and  equality to all people, with the perception that regardless of religion, ethnicity, race, age, sex,  gender identity, sexual orientation or any future trait of marginalization, all people should be free  to lead full and happy lives. We assert that the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act or House  Bill 2, passed on March 23, 2016, is a direct threat to these principles and the well­being of all  North Carolina citizens, particularly transgender citizens, and has no place in our state and our  school.   We hold belief that:     The sections of the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act and the results of said  sections are contradictory to the justifications for the law listed within in the document itself.  House Bill 2 is designed to protect North Carolina citizens from discrimination.2 However, the  language of the bill discriminates against transgender people by defining gender purely on  biological grounds and by allowing businesses and schools to discriminate against their workers  and students, specifically in regards to public restrooms and facilities. In addition, the presidency  of this law over local governments denies the ability of towns and cities to protect their residents  from discrimination and undue hardship. House Bill 2 is intended to aid in the operation of  intrastate business and attract new venues to this state.3 However, the nullification of the freedom  to sue for unjust discrimination in the workplace harms businesses and the people that run them.  These rights revoked from all North Carolina citizens and discrimination towards transgender  people has resulted in business being lost in the state. We maintain that the sections of the Public  Facilities Privacy and Security Act and the results of those sections directly undermine the  justifications for House Bill 2 which are as follows: to protect North Carolinians from  discrimination and to improve the flow of business within our state. Our perception holds that  House Bill 2 targets vulnerable transgender citizens, denies discrimination protection for all  citizens, and damages state business at a hazardous level.    1  ​ The opinions stated in this address are personal and do not represent the school or district of those that hold them.   ​ Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act​ , Page Four, Part III, Section 3.1, lines 24­27; Page Five, Part III, Section 3.3, lines 6­9  3  ​ Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act​ , page one, lines 14­20  2 We believe that House Bill 2 is an unjust law that defies our strongly held personal  beliefs of acceptance, inclusion, and equality for all people. It denies North Carolina citizens the  right to lead full and happy lives with equal protection and without undue hardship. We believe  the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act discriminates against transgender people and is  detrimental to the well­being of all North Carolina citizens and its businesses. We hold these  sincere personal beliefs in our hearts and our minds, and therefore will not in good conscience  support House Bill 2 in ​ any form whatsoever ​ within the walls of our school and the borders of  our state.    Signed,                                                        Bibliography    ABC11. "CEOs, Governments Speak against North Carolina Law." ​ ABC11 Raleigh­Durham​ .     ABC 11 Eyewitness News, 2 Apr. 2016. Web. 12 Apr. 2016. <​​ >.      Bishop, Stam, Howard, and Steinburg. ​ GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF NORTH CAROLINA     SECOND EXTRA SESSION 2016 H 1 HOUSE BILL 2​  V1 (2016): 1­5. North Carolina     General Assembly, 23 Mar. 2016. Web. 12 Apr. 2016.<​​ >.      Boffetta, Elena. "Being Transgender in North Carolina: Reaction to HB2."​ Newsobserver​ . The     News & Observer, 10 Apr. 2016. Web. 12 Apr. 2016. <​​ >.      The Charlotte Observer. "North Carolina's Discriminatory House Bill 2 Will Hurt Transgender     Youth." ​ Charlotteobserver​ . The Charlotte Observer, 6 Apr. 2016. Web. 12 Apr. 2016.     <​​ >.      Triad Business Journal. "Report: LabCorp Joins Call to Repeal HB2." Triad Business Journal, 6     Apr. 2016. Web. 12 Apr. 2016. <​​ >.      WBTV Web Staff. "PayPal Nixes Planned Charlotte Expansion over HB2." WBTV, 5 Apr.  2016.     Web. 12 Apr. 2016. <​​ >

  Online​ ​Privacy  ​ ​ and​ ​the​ ​Dangers​​ ​of​ ​Surveillance              ​​​   What​ ​is​ ​Government​ ​Surveillance​ ​of​ ​Technology?  As​ ​the​ ​name​ ​suggests,​ ​Government​ ​Surveillance​ ​of​ ​Technology​ ​is​ ​when  the​ ​Government​ ​has​ ​the​ ​authority​ ​to​ ​monitor​ ​all​ ​types​ ​of​ ​technology.​ ​This  includes​ ​phone​ ​calls,​ ​emails​ ​and​ ​text​ ​messages,​ ​webcams​ ​or​ ​microphones,  keystrokes,​ ​web​ ​searches,​ ​gps​ ​and​ ​much​ ​more.​ ​Every​ ​type​ ​of​ ​privacy​ ​you  thought​ ​you​ ​had​ ​is​ ​all​ ​gone​ ​when​ ​you​ ​can​ ​be​ ​spied​ ​on​ ​you​ ​at​ ​any​ ​time.    This​ ​is​ ​Edward​ ​Snowden​,​ ​if​ ​that​ ​name​ ​sounds​ ​familiar​ ​that’s​ ​because​ ​a  movie​ ​was​ ​made​ ​about​ ​him​ ​in​ ​2016.​ ​He​ ​is​ ​relevant​ ​to​ ​this​ ​topic  because​ ​he​ ​worked​ ​with​ ​the​ ​CIA​​ ​during​ ​the​ ​Obama​ ​administration​ ​and  leaked​ ​data​ ​being​ ​assembled​ ​to​ ​track​ ​all​ ​forms​ ​of​ ​digital  communications​ ​by​ ​the​ ​NSA​.​ ​Not​ ​just​ ​foreign​ ​Governments​ ​and  terrorist​ ​groups​ ​were​ ​subject​ ​to​ ​this​ ​surveillance​ ​but​ ​also​ ​regular  American​ ​citizens.​ ​He​ ​fled​ ​to​ ​an​ ​undisclosed​ ​location​ ​ ​in​ ​Moscow  Russia​ ​after​ ​this​ ​leak​ ​due​ ​to​ ​multiple​ ​charges​ ​by​ ​the​ ​American  Government.​ ​To​ ​some​ ​he​ ​is​ ​seen​ ​as​ ​a​ ​hero​ ​but​ ​to​ ​others​ ​as​ ​a​ ​terrorist.    Does​ ​this​ ​occur​ ​in​ ​Canada?  Bill​ ​C-51​ ​is​ ​an​ ​anti​ ​terrorist​ ​legislation​ ​put​ ​in​ ​place​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Harper  administration​ ​which​ ​gives​ ​the​ ​CSIS​​ ​(​Canadian​ ​Security​ ​Intelligence  Service)​ ​expanded​ ​power​ ​to​ ​monitor​ ​technology.​ ​Under​ ​this​ ​bill  promoting​ ​terroristic​ ​acts​ ​becomes​ ​an​ ​offence​ ​under​ ​the​ ​criminal​ ​code.​ ​A  larger​ ​crackdown​ ​on​ ​terrorist​ ​propaganda​ ​in​ ​the​ ​form​ ​of​ ​online​ ​and  computer​ ​files​ ​will​ ​happen.​ ​Police​ ​can​ ​now​ ​arrest​ ​people​ ​for​ ​suspicion  without​ ​warrant.​ ​CSIS​​ ​can​ ​interfere​ ​with​ ​terror​ ​plots.​ ​And​ ​finally,​ ​your  personal​ ​information​ ​is​ ​shared​ ​with​ ​more​ ​departments.   What​ ​type​ ​of​ ​message​ ​can​ ​lead​ ​to​ ​an​ ​arrest?    The​ ​vagueness​ ​of​ ​this​ ​bill​ ​doesn’t​ ​specifically​ ​state​ ​what​ ​is​ ​against​ ​the  criminal​ ​code.​ ​What​ ​is​ ​considered​ ​promotion​ ​of​ ​terrorism​ ​can​ ​be  considered​ ​differently​ ​between​ ​what​ ​you​ ​think​ ​and​ ​the​ ​Government  thinks.​ ​Therefore​ ​if​ ​you​ ​make​ ​a​ ​sarcastic​ ​threat​ ​online​ ​you​ ​could​ ​be  arrested​ ​without​ ​a​ ​warrant​ ​under​ ​suspicion​ ​of​ ​terrorism.​ ​The​ ​Government  doesn’t​ ​know​ ​the​ ​true​ ​intent​ ​behind​ ​a​ ​message.​ ​Because​ ​of​ ​this,​ ​society  has​ ​to​ ​conform​ ​to​ ​a​ ​restriction​ ​on​ ​free​ ​speech​ ​to​ ​avoid​ ​being​ ​imprisoned.              ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​Is​ ​the​ ​Government​ ​morally  justified​ ​when​ ​monitoring​ ​online  ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​activity​ ​and​ ​messages?                            ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​I​ ​feel​ ​as​ ​if​ ​the​ ​results​ ​of​ ​my​ ​research​ ​questions​ ​will   prove​ ​ ​that​ ​government​ ​surveillance​ ​of​ ​technology​ ​is​ ​on   average​ ​immoral​ ​and​ ​harmful.​ ​People​ ​don’t​ ​act​ ​the​ ​same   ​ ​ ​way​ ​they​ ​do​ ​online​ ​as​ ​in​ ​person.​ ​There​ ​for​ ​legal​ ​action   ​ ​ ​should​ ​not​ ​be​ ​put​ ​in​ ​place​ ​when​ ​people​ ​exercise​ ​their   ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​right​ ​to​ ​free​ ​speech​ ​online.​ ​For​ ​that​ ​reason​ ​it​ ​is   ​ ​ ​ ​ineffective​ ​in​ ​finding​ ​the​ ​actual​ ​criminals​ ​but​ ​instead   puts​ ​regular​ ​citizens​ ​at​ ​risk​ ​which​ ​is​ ​immoral​ ​and​ ​harmful.            Puts​ ​regular​ ​citizens​ ​at​ ​risk  With​ ​more​ ​power​ ​being​ ​put​ ​in​ ​the​ ​hands​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Government​ ​in​ ​terms​ ​of  online​ ​activity,​ ​the​ ​margin​ ​of​ ​error​ ​goes​ ​up​ ​as​ ​well.​ ​Whatever​ ​the  authorities​ ​deem​ ​“suspicious”​ ​online​ ​gives​ ​them​ ​the​ ​authority​ ​to​ ​now  arrest​ ​you​ ​immediately.​ ​These​ ​lack​ ​of​ ​precautions​ ​will​ ​cause​ ​a​ ​influx​ ​in  innocent​ ​citizens​ ​getting​ ​in​ ​trouble​ ​with​ ​the​ ​law​ ​even​ ​if​ ​not​ ​guilty​ ​in  intent.    The​ ​majority​ ​of​ ​citizens​ ​don’t​ ​want​ ​to​ ​be​ ​monitored   If​ ​most​ ​citizens​ ​don’t​ ​want​ ​laws​ ​inhibiting​ ​their​ ​privacy​ ​uselessly,​ ​it​ ​is  immoral​ ​to​ ​force​ ​legislation​ ​upon​ ​them.​ ​There​ ​hasn’t​ ​been​ ​shown​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a  need​ ​for​ ​Bill-C51​ ​in​ ​Canada​ ​and​ ​yet​ ​the​ ​Harper​ ​government​ ​in​ ​2015​ ​put​ ​it  in​ ​place.​ ​Because​ ​it​ ​isn’t​ ​needed​ ​and​ ​citizens​ ​disagree​ ​with​ ​it,​ ​it​ ​is  immoral.​ ​However​ ​if​ ​there​ ​was​ ​a​ ​clear​ ​problem​ ​with​ ​terrorism​ ​and​ ​there  was​ ​a​ ​strong​ ​correlation​ ​between​ ​terrorists​ ​and​ ​online​ ​activity​ ​then​ ​it  would​ ​be​ ​moral.   A​ ​random​ ​sample​ ​of​ ​1500​ ​Canadian​ ​adults​ ​of​ ​different​ ​races​ ​and​ ​provinces​ ​that  were​ ​phoned​

   ​Graphics Designer: u/GrandTheftDox Contributors:  u/Crater_Cake,   u/ZAWGURN & BlastingAwsome   u/The-Potato-Lord:  Editor-in-Chief  ELECTION RESULT, CONSTITUTION AND MORE  POPULATION DECLINE CONTINUES IN THE YAM REPUBLIC AS  POLITICAL FLOURISHING OCCURS.       Technocrats Triumph   “A party of order or stability, and a party of progress or reform, are both necessary elements of a  healthy state of political life.” ​ - John Stuart Mill  After  a  short  but  gruelling  election  campaign  (for  details  see  Issue  six)  the  polls  finally  closed  and  the  arduous  process  of  vote  counting  began.  On  the morning of the 7th of May  2017,  u/Bluy9888  released  the  official  election  results.  The  election  was a great success for  the  Technocrats  who  won  the  presidency  by  a  margin  of  ~1%  with  31.1%  of  the  vote  with  the  socialists  coming  a  close  second.  In  the  House,  the  results  were  similar  with  the          Technocrats  winning  17  seats  while  the  other  parties  made up the remaining 33 seats. The  Senate  race  saw  the  Technocrats  coming  away  with  6  seats  while  the  socialists came away  with  4.  The  others  split  the  5  other  seats,  (see  the  makeup  of  the  Yamliament  below).  The  next election will take place over the first weekend of June from the 2nd to the 3rd.      The  Executive  branch  is  led  by  president  u/xxtheproonexx  and  vice  president  u/sultanskyman.  The  roles  of  Yametary  of state, war and treasury are taken by u/Ansaberk,  u/Diztortion_  and  u/awesomeboy101  respectively  while  u/nomaxx117  takes  up  the role of  Yametary of education.   Many  citizens  were  alarmed  by  the  power  the  Technocrats  now  exercised  over  the  Yamliament  with  u/UserNumber33  asking  “Does  this  mean  the  technocrats  can  overrule  the  current  system  and  change  our  democracy  to  a  dictatorship  if  they  wanted  to?”  However,  u/Bluy98888  was  able  to  allay  the  citizen's  fears  by  explaining  that  the  Technocrats  don’t  hold  a  majority  and  would  need  to  pass  an  amendment  to  gain  more  power.  He  also  indicated  that  the  military  would  become  involved  to  restore  peace  and  democracy  in  an  emergency.  u/Sir_Oakijak  leader  of  the  r/CarrotEmpire  while  feeling  less  threatened  by  the  Technocrat  majority  released  a  statement  in  which  he  said  “Well  I  can't  complain  about  the  results.  I'm  really  surprised at the results though. I was not expecting a  Technocrat majority everything.”  2        Analysis  Our  resident  statistician  u/grandthefdox  performed  some  analysis  to  break  down  the  voting  patterns  of  the  citizens  of  the  Yam  Republic,  (see  below).  The  result  of  the  analysis  showed  that  while  most  people  vote  for  the  same  party in each of the elections (President,  Congress  and  Senate)  a  significant  proportion  also  spread  out  their  vote  and  vote  for  different  parties  in  different  races.  This  uncovers  that  though  there  is  some  level  of  homogeneity  in  the  voting  patterns  of  citizens  many  are  not  fixed  on  one party alone. This  insight  may  be  of  use  during  the  next  election  campaign  -  if  voters  could  be  influenced  to  vote  for  one  party  only  by  campaign  material  then  the makeup of the Yamiament could be  very different.    The Constitution of the Yam Republic   By u/Crater_Cake      After  days  of  intense  debate,  compromise and a leak to the r/YamPress the Yam Republic  completed  drafting  its  constitution.  “We  the  People  of  the Yam Republic, in order to form a  more  perfect  union,  establish  justice, ensure domestic tranquillity, provide for the common  3        defense,  promote  the  general  welfare,  and  secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and  our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Yam Republic.”   The  constitution  is  made  up  of  nine  articles  separated  into  several  sections  and  sets  the  rules  for  the State, the Legislative branch, the Executive branch and more. Largely based on  the  Constitution  of  the  United  States  of  America,  the  Constitution  of  the  Yam  Republic  ensures  equality  for  all  citizens,  promotes  itself  as  one  union  and  places  the  power  of  the  government  in  the  hands  of  the  people.  ‘Created  by  the  people,  for  the  people’,  is  a  message  commonly  construed  about  the  Constitution  of  the  United States of America, and  first  said  by  the  great  American  president  Abraham  Lincoln.  However,  at  first,  this  was  not  the case with the Constitution of the Yam Republic.   Initially,  the  Constitution  was  drafted  by  the  Technocratic  Party  and  a  few  select  Eternal  Leaders  of  the  r/YamRepublic.  However,  u/spladlesrus  realized  that  this  was  unfair,  and  backed  by  u/Crater_Cake  and  u/stickittotheman666,  u/spladlesrus  got  two  representatives  from  each  political  party  to  be  allowed  to  be  a  part  of  the  drafting  of the constitution. This  was  a  true  representation  of  the  people’s  involvement  in  government  and  equality  for  all  yams.  The  yams  have  proved  so  far  to  be  the most developed of all the nations in the Great Food  Alliance  (GFA).  According  to  some  data  collected  by  u/The-Potato-Lord,  the  Yam  Republic  currently  has  14,885  citizens,  over  85  times  as many citizens as the next largest member of  the  GFA,  r/CabbageCountry.  The  yams  have  a  lot  more  manpower  (or  should  I  say  foodpower?),  to  create  a  prominent  nation  rapidly  and efficiently. May the yams contribute  to, promote, and work towards a strong GFA.    Military Recruitment  The  r/YamMilitary  had  much  cause  for  celebration  this  week  as  it’s  new  destroyer  was  unveiled  (below  left)  by  u/spladlesrus  who  announced: “With the official deployment of our  newest  vessel,  We  will  proudly  patrol the seas maintaining dominance of the water and the  air.”  Meanwhile,  with  recruit  numbers  slowing  the r/YamMilitary created some propaganda  4        material  to  drive  up  recruitment.  u/TheAverageDafoe  produced  a  poster  showing  some  proud and brave Yammy Seals entitled “Join The Yammy Seals Today.”      Cocoabean Welcome and Religion   By u/BlastingAwsome  Courtesy  of  ​Bill  018  (see  Bill  section),  r/CocoaBeanCountries  were  recently  inducted  in  the  Great  Food  Alliance  (GFA).  Their  new  leader,  u/BlastingAwsome  had  proposed  the  bill  last  Thursday  and  had  this  to  say  about  it:  “Thanks  for  accepting  us!  We're  glad  to  be  here.”  u/The-Potato-Lord,  emperor  of  the  r/PotatoEmpire  welcomed  the  Cocoa  Beans  to  the  alliance,  in  a  statement  he  said,  “I  have  always  admired  the  Cocoa Beans and I’m delighted  for them to join us.” The GFA updated flag and logo can be seen below.    In  other  Cocoa  news,  the leaders of r/CocoaBeanCountries have decided to establish a new  religion  and  all  vegetables  have  been  invited  to  assist  in  developing  the  religion  and  its  sacred  texts.  We  have  been  reliably  informed  that  everyone  who  participates  will receive a  limited flair.     5
