The constitution’s Emoluments Clause: You don’t have to be a constitutional law professor to have a “gut” about this one. The Constitution’s Emoluments Clause. President Trump has defended his foreign income by saying that President Obama sold books to universities abroad and made millions, so why can’t he make an income too from his foreign entities? Besides, Trump’s lawyers argue the money would go into the US Treasury . A Federal judge might dismiss this case in favor of Trump, given Obama made $15 million dollars from three books. So, what do you think? If Trump gives the money to the US Treasury, does that remove him from under the mantle of the Emoluments Clause?

Revenge Porn: The practice of shaming a ex-spouse or ex-lover by posting illicit pictures of them on the internet without their consent is known as revenge porn. Victims are fighting back after saying they feel it’s like having an incurable disease. Some of them have hired lawyers and others have sued their ex-s. They ‘re speaking up too, more and more about it, and are more careful not to get their bedroom habits recorded on camera. What do you think of revenge porn perpetrators and the victims of it? What should be done about it?

Should anyone be eligible for student loans? With the growing debt placed upon students and their families, is it time to rethink who should get a student loan? Many a student cannot afford to pay back the enormous debt incurred with student loans. Nor can their parents. Yet, with the push for a higher education, students and parents alike feel the pressure to get in and get out of college with a degree. Still, the debt piles up, especially since federal loans are essentially available to anyone with a high-school diploma or GED certificate. Are you in the camp of “Yes” that lenders shouldn’t pick which students get an education, OR are you in the camp of “NO” that we end up hurting the students we are trying to help because the payback is too burdensome?
