Why is the subject of Law so complicated and confusing

When you say miles do you mean ‘miles’ miles or nautical miles?

Everyone is born under maritime law in the us technically because you are born through a “water canal” so they can write you off as an agricultural asset. This way they are able to tax your corporate name that is in all caps so that you are able to be indebted to them. Yet people don’t know about this and is very hard to write off debt because going alone against the government is not plausible with all the bullshit hoops you’d have to jump through.

You didn't talk about the great grand banks pseudo war. Were Canada decided to protect the grand banks outside the 200 mile zone. They confiscated a New Bedford fishing boat and almost went to war with Spain.

Just a heads up, marijuana is NOT LEGAL in the Netherlands, check for yourselves. It's just not enforced. So you could not have shitloads of weed on a ship from the Netherlands...

I still don’t know the right words to express my gratitude to the Great Dr. EMUA. After been diagnosed of HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2014, i was given so many health prescription and advice with no improvement, I totally lost hope, until i found testimonies of Great Dr. EMUA in an online research and on Facebook, Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about contacting him, but i later did and he opened up to me and told me what was involved and he started the remedies for my health. Thank God, i was cured from herpes by the herbal medication I received from him. I never thought that herpes can be cured, from the bottom of my heart I'm truly grateful,i pray you have long life so you can help many more people on earth with your herbal medical support, You can Email him via his email dremuahelphome@outlook.com or dremuahelphome@gmail.com for easy and fast communication you can also call or add him on whats-app with this number +15185546034, one thing i love most about DR EMUA is honestly

I don't think having a US passport is a good idea, you can never escape the stupid tax system where ever you live in the world.

There is NO SUCH THING AS INTERNATIONAL LAW or MARITIME LAW; not in the sense that we understand laws anyway. There are only treaties and agreements between countries. There is no international law because there is no authority which can make them and compel their adherence by all countries. If a powerful country like the USA decides that it its territorial waters is 500 km not 12km and it is willing to use deadly force including 12 Super Carriers, 75 AEGIS destroyers and 50 Nuclear Attack Submarines to defend and enforce this insistence, other entities can either accept it or they can declare war and lose. Even when there are treaties and conventions, countries can and routinely do withdraw from or unilaterally break treaties and renounce conventions. When that happens all the legal wrangling is bullshit and it all comes down to who has the military and economic might to get their way. In a world made up of countries, laws do not really extend beyond borders or the realm of sovereign control. The world stage is all about countries bullying one another, where the biggest and baddest bullies get the goods and the weak and stupid get shafted.

I think the drinking age in international waters is actually more laid back than you described. When I flew Lufthansa from Frankfurt to DC, I was offered wine and beer as a 16 y/o minor with no questions asked. Legal in Germany where the plane is registered, but not in the States. I'd imagine citizenship matters are taken more seriously, however hahaha.

3:38 is wrong they get a DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) actually!! Which Trump is trying to rid of now. Pregnant women try to have their kids in the states so they can stay and when they get on Amercian land/water they try to induce labor.

Fun fact: the modern UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (which is different from Maritime Law, dealing more with territorial waters, this video seems to confuse the two) is primarily enforced by the most powerful navy in the world, the United States Navy, which is more powerful than all other navies in the world combined... Despite the fact that the United States Congress never ratified our signing of the treaty...

I learned about maritime law from my captain when commercial fishing. We got in a argument and he bound and gagged me and put me in the fish hold for 3 days. Funny thing is he didn't violate any law doing so.

All cruise ships want cheap labor with no EPA hassles - only third World slaves - the customers though are those white people you see, and maybe the Captain is Dutch. Unions - dream on - you died during Pearl Harbor plus 5 years.

a baby born is hostile act if borne on a cruise ship! Maritime lawyer

Where did you get the idea that Panama has less people than Minneapolis??? Panama's population is over 4 Million, whereas Minneapolis only has 415 thousand. I think you meant "Minnesotta", which has a total population of 5 million....

Our mothers break water, we come out of her "birth canal" and they want us to get a "birth cirtificate" Max (somebody) does an interesting video on how even on land we are under maritime law.

The principle used is largely one of these two •Jus soli: right by birthplace (like most countries of American continent) •Jus sanguini: right by blood (like Indonesia, India, Iran, Iceland)
