Opponents say that the Americans only purpose for entering the gulf war was to protect its access to gulf oil. They accuse the country of not standing by the democratic ideals that it says it adheres to. Critics bring up the fact that the United States government supports dictators in smaller countries to further its objectives. D’Souza argues that American domination is much different than previous empires in that we do not sustain this with force. He asserts that Americas influence is the source of its power.
The rich are penalized for their contribution to the economy through high tax. Our benefit system has spawned a class of intelligent people who exploit the system! In my view this general state has risen from economic and educational divides. I find that the way that different classes of people react to each other, and how they have different mind-sets a bit weird. I mean “who really cares if you dad is worth £1.5 billion or you live in downtown London?” Unfortunately there are people who will judge you based just on your money which saddens me as many of the happiest and nicest people I know are not vastly rich but balanced all rounded individuals.

People of color need more assistance than whites because they are automatically a step down from white people. If I walked into a store and applied for a job, even if I was very poor and had no experience, there is a good chance I would be more likely to get it than a black or latina girl of the same situation. This is unfair but true, and speaks of an inequality that our country is still struggling with and that we need these government programs to help balance out. Also, I find issue with his statement that “Those who came to this country in recent decades from Asia, Latin
Throughout history, mainstream media has focused on the advertising of the female’s body. The outbreak in men’s fashion has been on the up-rise and this contradicts the point that Bordo is trying to make. She thinks that men are not supposed to have any idea on fashion or even care about what people where to think if they saw them. This is proved to be not true for some men but where is it safe for us to draw the line on male’s masculinity. Reading Bordo’s essay helps us to construct the boundaries in which we would consider male advertising as feminine or masculine.
Immigration, damaging or helpful? Immigration has been a problem in the United States since before the country was established. Many citizens and politicians claim that illegal immigration is a hindrance to the country’s economy because immigrants take American jobs and that they don’t pay taxes. They also agree that our government spends too much money in keeping them out. People on the other side of this argument claim that immigrants help by taking unwanted jobs with very little pay, and in doing that they are helping keep the prices of domestic goods down across the country.

In the eyes of millions of people homosexuals are just “those people who like just men or who like just women”. A homosexual is a person, no matter how you look at it. Just because a person likes the same sex shouldn’t matter as long as they are happy just as a heterosexual is. In federal law it defines marriage as one man and one woman. Between different religions they argue that it homosexual actions are sinful, however within many other religions there are also people who view the two sexual orientations positively.
Human nature, in combination with the “American Dream,” convinces us to constantly chase individuality and to keep striving to be the best. In turn, American consumers tend to buy luxury items based on how they desire to be perceived. This, in fact, leaves people vulnerable to the master manipulation practices of the advertising industry. Advertisers manipulate shoppers by tapping into a persons emotions; they purposefully use fanciful illusions of “the good life” to
