News does not give the research that goes into debates and arguments about things being voted on like newspapers do. There is a chart on page eleven showing the percentages of people that read a newspaper every day of the week between the years 1957 and 2004. In 1957, 76 percent of people read a newspaper every day of the week. The number decreases to 41 percent in 2004. In between these years, the numbers increase and decrease and increase, but overall it is a great decrease.

President Roosevelt helped reduce the worst effect of the Depression, but the economy was not fully functional until after 1939. It lasted near 10 years, starting after the stock market crash in 1929 until a decade later in 1939. Leaders such as President Herbert Hoover assured the United States that everything would run its course but by the end of 1930, 4 million Americans were looking for work and by 1931 that number had increased to 6 million. Hoover believed that the government shouldn’t mess with the economy and that it was not responsible for creating jobs or providing relief to United States citizens. Roosevelt won the election of 1932, with around 20% of the population unemployed.
With the highest crime states out of the picture it left knowingly less violent states for Brady supporters to use as proof of decreasing crime. From 1993 to present year there has been a steady five to ten percent decrease in U.S. violent crimes. The FBI reported an estimate of 1.3 million violent crimes in 2009, of which 67.1% were aggregated assaults, but of that percent, firearms were used in only 20.9% of those assaults. So, let us for example ban guns and pretend no citizens have access to them, which leaves 46.2% violent assaults where a gun was not used (U.S. Department of, 2010). High numbers of violent crimes still exist even after firearms are subtracted from the

History Coursework 2013 To what extent does the failure of the BUF to gain mass support in the 1930s reflect the lack of enthusiasm in Britain in the years 1845-1945 for any kind of extreme politics? Historians have never been able to accurately calculate the membership for the BUF. According to G.C Webber (1984) patterns of membership and support for the BUF scholars agree 40,000 members in 1934 this shows solidarity within historical documentation of the BUF . However he later states on the basis of the information contained in the home office files released out the public records office is that all the answers are misleading. For example the source refers to a picture painted by Collin Cross and accepted by Robert Benewick to support
British political leaders only agreed to televised debates for the first time in the General Election of 2010. * The first televised debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney in 2012 attracted almost 70 million viewers. Even allowing for the difference in population, the televised debates between the British party leaders do not attract the same level of interest. * In an American presidential election, turnout is typically around 50% (although in the 2008 election it was over 60%) and, in the case of mid-term Congressional elections, turnout typically falls to around 40%. In the UK, turnout in General Elections used to be around 75% but more recently has fallen to around
There is a sense of fear when it comes to certain tasks completed by technology: A fear of being left behind or being considered a social outcast. There is also an instinctive trait in us humans to fear what we do not know. There are those of the previous generations who try their best to keep abreast with current technological advances and then there are those whose fear is so great that they completely shut down the whole concept of trying to learn about technology. Throughout America’s society there have always been technological advances to better the country and the world as a whole, but as time progressed, the ability to adopt and adjust to these changes decreased as people ages increased. It seemed as if the only people who were able to keep up with the rapid change were the youth.
The ‘Normal’ American Family is a Myth by Stephanie Pappas This article, written by Stephanie Pappas, reviews how much the typical American family has changed and evolved over the most recent 50 years, as well as how there “is no single normal in the modern American family”, according to a report prepared for the Council on Contemporary Families. The article gives statistics to support that the American family has changed from a two-parent style household to a wide diversity of living. In today’s time, children most commonly live with married, dualcareered parents; however, there is no family style that wins the majority poll. I enjoyed a statement made by Philip Cohen, a sociologist at the University of Maryland. Cohen stated, “We have not
