1. A. “Court Rejects Federal Government’s “Ludicrous” Emergency Rule on Red Snapper Fishing”,, 6/4/2013
B. The federal government attempted to shorten the red snapper recreational fishing season by issuing an emergency rule. A federal district judge overturned the rule because he said that it was just their way to “punish Texas simply because federal bureaucrats disagreed with state rules about fishing in state waters”.
C. In this case I would have to agree with the decision the judge made.
D. “The emergency rule amounted to the federal government telling states if you do something we don’t like; we will punish your citizens.” This is another quote taken from the article, which I agree with. Too often we see how people, like the government, use their power to get away with things just because they can and it just isn’t right. I am glad that the judge seen that and made an excellent decision.

C. I agree with the author.
D. Why would any school board just sit back and watch the leadership of its schools diminish like these two? The fact that they actually stood up and made a decision that would benefit the education and future of the students attending should say a lot for them. I would hope that the school of where my children attend would do the same for them.

At the age of 30 he attained his first elected office and from there he was everything from a member of the Stamp Act Congress in 1765 to a military leader in the colonial militia to President of the State of Delaware for a three year term. In 1782 he was again elected to the national Congress, but was forced to decline the office due to failing health and died in June of 1784.
B. I randomly picked Caesar Rodney from the list of signers. I did however pick a few of the others and read over their accomplishments before I settled with Rodney. I found him fascinating with all the positions he had held at such an early age.
