Domestic Surveillance is a withering matter which not many people care about because they think that it does not affect them. However, it is common in the daily lives of American citizens. But the question remains, how much does the U.S. government know about your personal privacy? Face it, it is a fact the United States peers on our personal life more than what you may think, and it does, in fact, appertain every single citizen of our nation. It is hidden, bathed in laws but linked to another. Cell phones have changed the ways of communication so much that the world can now have internet, face to face chatting, and some 3D technology has already successfully made holograms. However, it also can pertain to invasion of privacy in some sorts. The NSA has passed several addendums to laws that explain how wiretapping and listening in on your calls is permissible without a warrant. President Bush stated “The law is only acceptable in the times in which our nation is threatened by acts of war or terrorism, including the war on terror, and homeland security interference." (George W. Bush) The Bush administration set out these laws even before 9/11 to capture these so called “domestic terrorists” and now, with Osama Bin Laden slain; the law was put in place yet again. What this means is that the government can track where citizens are at all times, record your email, phone calls, text messages, internet activity anything that you do on your phone. It is scary to think that, but, they inform the public that it is probable cause only, which is a whopping lie in times of war. It clearly states that in times of war everyone is under scrutiny and anyone can be considered a terrorist and jailed for it. However, they show their citizens they keep them safe by introducing new bills and laws. This is similar to the thought police in 1984 how they listened and read all of your thoughts and feelings.

...Understanding Domestic Abuse and the Restorative Process Diploma
Name: Amanda Dixey
Student ID: S112909
Assignment No.: FINAL
1. A Female victim confides in you about the extent of the abuse. She feels that she can trust you and admits that they are thinking about getting back together because he ‘has changed’. He has referred himself to counselling, and she believes that he won’t do it again. It is clear that she still has low self-esteem and has not fully completed the restorative process.
How would you support her and what is your role? She needs to be made aware of what a healthy relationship is. Someone who has suffered domestic violence does not fully understand what being in a healthy relationship is and unless she understands this, she may slip back into an abusive relationship again. For victims of domestic abuse it is often difficult to put themselves first. It is my role to help her to understand that it is not her fault and that she did not deserve the abuse or cause it in anyway. She should be encouraged to explore why and where the guilt has come from, and why she feels responsible for the abuse. I need to support her to build her self esteem in order for her not to accept a dysfunctional relationship in future. The impact of low self-esteem can be devastating and unless she is supported she may slip into a darker place and turn to substance misuse, get into bad situations or they end up punishing themselves....
Does Domestic Violence Continuing to Escalate?
Domestic Abuse is a serious problem in the United States. Most domestic relationships begin with attraction and formed into love. Over time, some women develop an emotional dependency for the man which she has fallen in love with. Majority of women think that she is in love with her partner and may even not imagine her life without him. Another dependency that some women have with their partner is financial means. A woman will feel at times that she will not be able to survive financially without her partner. These dependencies are viewed by men as a weakness. This is how men will gain total control over the woman. Many women who are in abusive relationships often develop a low self-esteem and possibly depression. There is a great deal of women who live in fear on a daily. They fear of what her partner may say or do if she upsets him. The sooner a woman seeks help with this problem, the less likely it will be that the abuse will escalate into a horrible or violent relationship.
There are numerous social issues that exist in our country today. One of the major problems that affect a billion of US women is domestic abuse. The Oklahoma County Prosecutors Office states that “One woman is beaten by her partner every 15 seconds in the United States” (“Fast Facts, 2013). So does this mean domestic violence continues to escalate? The answer is yes....

...Domestic Violence: A Serious Issue
Domestic violence is an occurrence of violence that is usually, but not limited to, when a loved one tries to physically or psychologically dominate another. Domestic violence leaves an everlasting scar of pain and fear for the victim. Someone’s life could be forever changed by an outbreak of domestic violence. Every nine seconds in the United States, a woman is assaulted or beaten (“Domestic Violence Statistics”, 2012). Although this is an unnerving statistic, people still choose to ignore the problem. On the same token, the legal system dealing with the issue fails to improve its attitudes towards domestic violence also. Society today fails to understand the severity of the situation. There needs to be more awareness about how big the issue of domestic violence actually is.
Many people have biases about domestic violence. For example someone might think that if the abuse is that horrific, they should just leave. Others think that if the victims come back to the abuser repeatedly by the own free will of the abused, the government should not involve itself at all. People who remain in abusive relationships are willing to sacrifice for the sake of another and to love without regard for reciprocity. What might make them think that this is okay? (Contreras-Byrd par. 43) Another bias is that the man is always the abuser and...
...THE BENEFITS OF DOMESTIC PARTNERSHIP BENEFITS
The Benefits of Domestic Partnership Benefits
University of Phoenix
The Benefits of Domestic Partner Benefits
In the process of recruiting and retaining new employees, one of the key considerations is the benefits package offered by an employer. The majority of prospective employees consider very carefully a perspective employer’s set of benefits prior to acceptance of employment. The availability of domestic partnerships has become a major topic of concern in most states resulting in a large number of political debates, constitutional amendments, and legal proceedings. The advantages gained by providing benefits to domestic partners can outweigh the costs. This report will define domestic partnerships, outline the various benefits available for dependants, provide analysis related to the cost of providing benefits to dependants of domestic partnerships, discuss various benefit package options and related costs, and provide details related to the value the company stands to gain by offering such benefits.
Domestic partnerships are generally thought of as a relationship between two members of the same sex. While same sex...
...com describes spousal abuse. But to me, spousal abuse is when one person in a marriage sanctified relationship verbally, mentally, emotionally, or physically abuses the other person in the relationship. Many people view domestic violence as only happening to specific races, ethnicities, class, education level or age of the abuser but, surprising to many, it occurs in all social economic, religious, and cultural groups. And it can be the most damaging thing a man or woman could ever go through.
In the US, a woman is beaten or assaulted every 9 seconds. At least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime all around the world. Most often, the abuser is a member of her own family. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women - more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic abuse annually. Nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm if presented with a breakup. Every day in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends. 92% of women surveyed listed reducing domestic violence and sexual assaults as their top concern. Domestic violence victims lose nearly 8 million days of paid work per year in the US alone - the equivalent of 32,000 full-time jobs. Based on reports...
