Judicial Tyranny Adrienne L. Wesley 2013 CJUS 330-D05 LUO Dr. David Ojo, Professor May 6, 2013 Abstract “The greatest threat to American democracy is the supreme power of judges over political, social and economic policy” (Mellor, 2008). Judicial Tyranny exposes the courts fifty year infiltration of legislative influence, made conceivable by president, congressmen, and voters who relinquished without a contest. The Constitution’s system of checks and balances between the three branches of government has been a misconception for years. The book explores how Judges shape necessary social policy, inflict taxes, oversee schools and prisons, and direct elections. In short, Americans have exchanged the rule of law for the rule of judges.
Although he is a politician, Paul Ryan has lied much more than most--or at least he has been caught doing so. Some of the lies he has told have been about stimulus spending, President Obama’s health care law, and about President Obama ignoring recommendations from a presidential commission to reduce the deficit. Paul Ryan falsely claimed that “The stimulus failed to help taxpayers and it cut out the American people.” Actually, more than twenty-five percent of the stimulus dollars went to provide tax relief for middle class workers. Paul Ryan continued the Republican Party’s campaign of false attacks by stating that, “Obama had funneled money out of Medicare to pay for the federal health care law at the expense of the elderly.” Paul Ryan’s statement is contradicted by Medicare’s chief actuary
The distribution was worse off than it ever was. Too much of the wealth was in the hands of too few people and so Long introduced the ‘big fortune cut’. Mr. Long’s first of six proposals was his most significant proposing that every big fortune be cut. He states “every big fortune shall be cut down immediately by a capital levy tax to where no one will own more than a few million dollars…shall go into the United States ownership.” This proposal prevents one from owning excess fortunes of up to three to four million dollars and gives the surplus to the United States, the government. In order to get this excess, questionnaires of the ownership of properties such as lands and houses, stocks and bonds, and factories and patents are sent to everyone.
While Reagan-Bush did manage to enforce several Acts for the benefit of the people, with the Gulf War and other economic/environmental calamities, their presidencies seemed to leave a bitter taste in the mouths of Americans. I am not quite sure how to indicate my reaction to this chapter. It’s true that in reading I could not move off the thought of just how much opinion appears in this chapter. Zinn’s opinion permeates everything, without regard for more objective stances about the
Initially, billions were wasted on war, bonds were a problem, and propaganda started to rise. Us spend about 33 billion on the making of the war. How did they get all that money? By taxing tobacco, liquor and luxury goods. Movie stars gave speeches in schools factories and street corners to help stop bonds free of charge.
An arrest warrant has been issued against Janet Lim-Napoles and her brother. While Napoles and her ilk have to be held accountable for the scam, we should not lose our sight on the bigger, more fundamental problem: how to stop our political system from churning out more Napoleses. That the pork barrel is a source of corruption is an “open secret.” Many have come to refer to “cuts” or “kickbacks” from pork as “SOP” or standard operating procedure. It is public awareness of this open secret that is now fueling public disgust: people know that their hard-earned taxpayers’ money is repeatedly being squandered by elected officials. Everyone knows about the roads that lead to nowhere, the funds for fertilizer that were distributed to local governments of non-agricultural highly urbanized cities, the daycare centers without toilets, the substandard roads and bridges, and many others.
Irene Joseph Professor Johnson ENGL 1301-219 January 31, 2012 Why Doesn’t GM Sell Crack? A Rhetorical Analysis of Moore’s “Why Doesn’t GM Sell Crack?” This text is an essay by Michael Moore entitled “Why Doesn’t GM Sell Crack?” It is taken from his political book Downsize This! published in 1996. This essay bought up a lot of radical thinking but at the same time, it helped the author get his point across. Moore persuades his audiences by saying as a society; we tend to forget what the outcome is when big corporations decide to fire workers because the CEO wants more for their salary.
| Negative Effects of Illegal Immigration | | | | | English Composition I Thomas Buffington 04/21/2011 | Illegal immigration affects every citizen in the United States in a negative way by keeping our taxes high, stealing American jobs, and making our country unsafe. Although this country was founded by immigrants we are no longer trying to build a country. There are Americans here struggling to pay bills, find jobs and live free of danger. Government agencies have tried to crack down on these immigrants but have been unsuccessful in their efforts so far. The problem is continuing to get worse and will eventually cause a decline in the American way of life.
Military I feel like there is a lack of respect for the military and their families. They deserve more respect than society gives them. It has been said that military standers are higher than the country demands of its president. This is very true. President Clinton lied under oath, perhaps that is not perjury, but an army officer could do that.
This has been a detriment to him and a big reason why peoplemay not favor him. Where as, President Bill Clinton spoke very well and was very poplar withthe people because he was able to properly connect with the public. This ties in the reason for why studying English thoroughly is important in the business world. In order to obtain a goodcareer an advancement as well as respect from your peers you have to be literate and welleducated.An additional reason for studying English is for communication. You are much moreaccepted in the world if you portray yourself better.
