A: 1. The claim that the 81st Congress in 1950 investigated and found that the lawyer guild was the legal bulwark of the Communist Party is a reference to the activities of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). However, this characterization is a matter of historical interpretation and political opinion. The HUAC did conduct investigations into various organizations and individuals for alleged communist ties, but the broad assertion as stated is oversimplified and controversial.

2. Social security cards, birth certificates, and driver's licenses are forms of identification and legal documentation issued by government entities. They are not contracts in the traditional legal sense. These documents do not grant jurisdiction; rather, they are used to verify identity, legal status, or qualifications, and are required for certain legal and administrative purposes.

3. The legality of an activity without a required license depends on the specific activity and the laws governing it. In general, many activities are lawful in their nature but require a license for regulatory, safety, or professional standards reasons. Operating without a required license can be illegal and subject to penalties.

4. The assertion that all lawyers have denounced their American citizenship is unfounded and incorrect. Lawyers in the United States, like other citizens, retain their citizenship unless they voluntarily renounce it through a legal process. Being a lawyer does not inherently affect one's citizenship status.

Understanding the complexities of law and how it applies to specific situations requires careful consideration of the facts and the applicable legal principles.
