Sometimes we have to contest against wrongdoings by government employees, including the police. In some cases, we can get lucky - and a keen eye can point out a tiny mistake of the law. A woman in Ohio avoided a parking ticket when she pointed out a missing comma that she claims made the law too confusing to follow. It happened in the small town of Middletown, Ohio, where an ordinance lists certain vehicles that can't be parked on the street for extended periods of time.
The law in question lists vehicles that cannot be parked more than 24 hours, including "motor vehicle camper," according to Business Insider. Andrea Cammelleri took this law to mean that mobile homes could not be parked for 24 hours on city streets, but figured her pickup truck would be just fine. When she found a ticket on her truck the next day, she decided to fight it. She argued she couldn't abide by the law not just because the law was worded wrongly, but because she was unable to understand the law as it was written. The city argued that it obviously meant to say "motor vehicle, camper," but didn't have a copy editor on hand to make sure the comma was in the right spot. Unfortunately for Middletown, a judge with the 12th Ohio District Court of Appeals agreed with Cammelleri. He forgave the ticket and directed the city to clarify the law if it wanted to keep enforcing the ordinance.
Bill Cosby thought everything would be fine when he was young. He had money, fame and power. He could have gotten women to his heart's content. Cosby was accused of trying the same trick many times. Eventually he got caught, and confessed in a settlement case. Now the majority of the world does not believe his stories about not drugging other women. Even though he might not be criminally charged, due to the time that has passed, he will have to face many civil lawsuits.
Iran has uranium and is very close to making a nuclear bomb. Iran is a threat for supporting terrorism and producing nuclear weapons. By an agreement between the US, Iran, and five main other countries, Iran would not make a large quantity of material to produce nuclear weapons. In my opinion, President Obama made the right decision. His deal will butter up Iran, which is against the US and its allies. A country has some weight/influence with the terrorist world. A friend of mine named Richard stated the same opinion. The US and its allies have decided on a path to deal with world business and policies. The Cold War is over. We must make decisions according to today's needs.
Obama has made historic changes, Affordable Health Care Act, open relations with Cuba, the Iran Agreement. Obama has changed the economy and at least left us with a better future. The bad thing hanging over us will be the huge debt the US and its residents will face in the future. The Republicans in Congress and Israel are protesting the deal. However, due to the changing needs, we have to change our policy. We have kept close relations with our friends, but have made some enemies as well. We have ruled over the world, but now we have to sustain that leadership, and make this world a better place to live for everyone.
Have a wonderful week. I'll talk to you next week.
