Mueller indictments may require some time on your part. If you read the entire text of the indictment document, you will have accomplished three important things.
What makes the case of treason difficult under the definition stated in the Constitution of the United States in Article III is the phrase “levying War against them”, meaning the states of the United States. The framers of the Constitution 240 years ago would not have been able to envision the digital world we live in of computers, social media, trolls and bots, cyber-attacks, and the ability to spread misinformation with lighting speed to millions of viewers on the internet.

Creating jobs and making education beyond K-12 affordable go hand in hand. Public education has always been the great economic equalizer. Most of the changes listed above regarding affordability apply here as well. However, there are several realities that exist that should be considered. The unemployment and underemployment rates are higher among Millennials of color, especially those in the inner cities, and young white Millennials in rural areas.
