English 12 September 10, 2013 Reagan in the 80’s – Did he help or hurt America? In 1980, troubled by an unstable economy, a hostage crisis overseas, and the end of prior administrations that were not trusted, America elected Ronald Reagan by a landslide margin of victory over Jimmy Carter. At sixty-nine years old, he was the oldest President to be elected. He was born in a small town in Illinois and served two terms as California governor starting in 1966. Reagan's track record proved to be very strong and included welfare cuts, decreasing the number of state employees, and halting radical student protesters.
Historical Context History Fair An analysis of data compiled from press accounts of dog hybrid attack deaths and maiming in the United States and Canada has been ongoing since 1982. There were many things happening at the time of this analysis including, but not limited to, a major cold snap, January continued through April, in North America; 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee, kicked off with an address by President Ronald Reagan. (Over 11 million people attend the fair during its 6-month run.) Also published in 1982, The Ethics of Liberty, by historian Murray N. Rothbard, is an exposition of the libertarian political position. It roots the case for freedom in the concept of natural rights and applies it to a host of practical problems.
HAS Admiral Mike Mullen, who retires next month after two terms as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, become a tad “demob happy”—or is America engaged in a serious, some would say overdue, attempt to redefine its relationship with Pakistan? Nobody has put more effort than Admiral Mullen (pictured above left) into nurturing the fractious but vital military-to-military relationship between the two countries. When I saw him in Washington, DC late last year, America's most senior military officer told me that he had travelled to Pakistan more than 20 times since 2008 for meetings with General Assfaq Kayani (pictured above right), Pakistan's top soldier. Despite the many frustrations he had encountered on the way, Admiral Mullen remained determined to see General Kayani not

Tonight’s program is a short excerpt from the many hours of argument that the Supreme Court heard before reaching its decision in Brown v. Board. The arguments for the consolidated cases began on Tuesday, December 9, 1952. Marshall and Davis began their arguments in Briggs v. Elliott late that day and concluded on the afternoon of Wednesday, December 10.

4.05C The tragic events of what took place a little over twelve years ago will be one of those events that will never been forgotten, like the Great Depression. Just a few weeks after the tragedy, George W. Bush, our President at the time, remembered that he was the leader of the nation and had to take a stand. Also, the previous Prime Minister of Great Britain, Tony Blair, felt like a speech was needed from him. Both of the men decided that the date September 11, 2001 would be unforgettable, and would have major effect on the country for many years to come. Even to this day, 9/11 is one of the most respected days in our lives.
I found two books from the Quincy Junior High Library along with a reference book. Also I have two internet sources; one is from ChicagoTribune.com which I found by myself and the other internet source was found by my mom’s co-worker, USAtoday.com. My database was a little bit harder to find but I did find one on Escohost. It is called, ”The World’s Most Dangerous Drug.” Dierker - 2 Methamphetamine Drug use, abuse, and addiction have been in our country for many decades. A new drug; Methamphetamine, has been on the rise for about twenty years; effecting tons of families and ruining millions of lives.
There are many statements and arguments that suggest that the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima was necessary to end World War II. Such as the Japanese were not surrendering, they still had fighting power as they had sunk U.S. Naval Ship Indianapolis only two days before the bombing Many of this argument can be counted as the only reason the Japanese weren’t surrendering is because they didn’t want to give up there emperor to the “unconditional surrender”, they practically had nothing left. They were sending their battleships and pilots out on suicide missions as they were desperate. Necessity of the bomb lies with the amount of people that would have been killed in a land invasion, although it was vastly exaggerated.
Transparency only affects those who care about being humiliated and embarrassed. He also states “the whole world maybe watching but no one seems to be paying much attention”. For example the Mafia, Taliban, Osama bin Laden could care less if the whole world was talking about them, they were still going to continue with the destruction they were causing, nothing was stopping them. Like Hugo Chavez said ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt
Professor Kagan stated that “People seem to think that only nuclear weapons can thoroughly destroy a civilization, but when the Athenians got through with Melos, they killed all the men and sold all the women and children into slavery. I regard that as sufficiently horrendous an outcome that to speak of worse is pointless.” The fact that he said to speak of worse is pointless boggles my mind. Thinking of worse possibilities is never pointless, I mean isn’t that the reason we all have insurance? To be prepared for those situations that just might happen but usually don’t. For example, my parents have been paying for flood insurance for god knows how many years but not once have had to use it, and who knows if they ever will, but if they decided to stop paying for flood insurance then suddenly one day their house floods it would take
