    The 16th Amendment gave the Federal Government the authority and power to tax every citizen. Here’s the wording of the Amendment: “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.” Please note that there is no provision in this amendment that Congress is given the right to unequally apply this power. In looking over all the Constitution’s amendments, I don’t see an unequal distribution of either a freedom or limitation. Equality under the law requires that as each of...

    TALLAHASSEE - Elections supervisors in eight counties can post signs at polling places that say a vote for the disgraced former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley is really a vote for his Republican replacement, as long as they name the Democrat, too, the 1st District Court of Appeal said Friday. Despite Foley's resignation nearly a month ago amid accusations that he sent lurid e-mails to congressional pages, his name is stuck on the ballot. While more than 11,000 voters in the 16th Congressional District have already cast votes without signs during early voting, the signs will go up and stay up,...

Therrell† *Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, Ciudad Universitaria, Mexico and †University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA The native population collapse in 16th century Mexico was a demographic catastrophe with one of the highest death rates in history. Recently developed tree-ring evidence has allowed the levels of precipitation to be reconstructed for north central Mexico, adding to the growing body of epidemiologic evidence and indicating that the 1545 and 1576 epidemics of cocoliztli (Nahuatl for "pest”) were indigenous hemorrhagic fevers transmitted by...

    "I won’t go to jail." Bob Schulz announces this in late January to a rapt crowd of 200 gathered in an auditorium in Crystal City, Virginia. It’s the first national conference of the We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education, a nonprofit advocacy group Schulz founded and runs. He delivers his declaration not with reckless bravado but with a dignified, quiet, middle-management-lifer assurance, in keeping with his general mien. Schulz is a serious white male in a nice conservative dark suit, a former environmental engineer for both General Electric and the Environmental Protection Agency. He’s been married for 38 years...

    Prehistoric Long Man is '16th century new boy' By David Derbyshire, Science Correspondent (Filed: 02/10/2003) The origins of England's tallest chalk hill figure, the Long Man of Wilmington, have puzzled historians and archaeologists for generations. Carved into a steep slope on the South Downs in Sussex, the imposing figure has been claimed as an Anglo Saxon warrior, a Roman folly and an Iron Age fertility symbol. The Long Man of Wilmington But according to a team of researchers, the Long Man may be a relatively recent addition to the landscape. Tests carried out this summer have produced compelling evidence that...

    Members of the 16th Knesset were sworn in today in an hourlong ceremony held at Israel's parliament building. President Moshe Katsav and former premier Shimon Peres, the longest serving lawmaker, presided, and swore in all 120 members, the veteran legislators along with the new. The names of each MK was called out alphabetically and each stood up to utter the requisite "I pledge" to affirm the Knesset vow. About a third of the lawmakers, 38, are new. The Knesset is scheduled to conclude in November 2007, although most recent legislatures have been dissolved in three years or less. Thirteen parties...
