...yes, it seems that kurupetos would choose to keep things just the way they are, so that "his" part has as its goal, "Greekness"; such a torrid love affair, between him and Lordo, don't you know?

Because you would be skint! :roll:

Nevermind ....

Just send the following letter to Mr. Tony Abbott.

Dear Mr Abbott,

Greeks are too stupid to be in charge of Cyprus, therefore I kindly request that Australia declare Cyprus as part of the Commonwealth of Australia.

Kind Regards

heres a couple of hints

federal law
Federal law is the body of law created by the federal government of a country. A federal government is formed when a group of political units, such as states or provinces join together in a federation, surrendering their individual sovereignty and many powers to the central government while retaining or reserving other limited powers. As a result, two or more levels of government exist within an established geographic territory. The body of law of the common central government is the federal law.


constituent state law
The fifty American states are separate sovereigns,[1] with their own state constitutions, state governments, and state courts. All states have a legislative branch which enacts state statutes, an executive branch that promulgates state regulations pursuant to statutory authorization, and a judicial branch that applies, interprets, and occasionally overturns both state statutes and regulations, as well as local ordinances. They retain plenary power to make laws covering anything not preempted by the federal Constitution, federal statutes, or international treaties ratified by the federal Senate.

Review question number 2

Is Federal law interpreted differently by different constituent states?

a) yes
b)no
c) yes, but the intent of the law has to remain as close as possible to the federal statute

Review question number 3

Can a federal law branch/clone itself into various different state laws?

a) yes
b)no

...in Canada, Provinces do not make Criminal Law, some of them do not even have that capacity, leaving the RCMP to represent Canadians, as the Crown. In Provinces with their own Police force, and in Cities there may exist many levels of law enforcement, there may be Courts which hold Criminal trials, prosecuted in Provincial Courts, the Prosecutor may be even paid by the Province, but they are the Crown's representative.

...Canadians chose as Canadians to end the death penalty, for example. The death penalty in the USA is alive and well, regardless what their President wants or works for, each state, its electors choose.

...while (almost) every Province collects Income Tax, only Quebec collects its own. By choice the other Provinces "pay" the Federal Government to collect for them their share.

...Canada and Canadians have Trade Agreements based on Law where among them there is no discrimination or distinction as Canadians, to trade. Internally there is a control and regulation on Trade and Employment, sometimes hard to explain like a law in one Province that prohibits the sale of margarine if it is coloured to look like butter.

Is Canada a federal republic RW?....and how does margarine colored like butter have to do with the proposed BBF in Cyprus? As for the death penalty in the USA, the federal American constitution gives the state's the right to their criminal justice system and punishment...52 different laws would have to be amended or a federal amendment to the constitution, which would require the approval of 75 % of the state's and that's unlikely...the same is true for universal healthcare, all the bylaws created in the past 200 years would be amended or a constitutional amendment to be ratified and that's also highly unlikely...

Can you take a crack at the review questions?

The no distinction clause could be added and no BBF required to the Cyprus solution...
