Even thou war is necessary sometimes to establish order and the cases of taken action has to be careful evaluated to avoid mistakes like the Iraqi war. For a centuries money westerns have cherished the tradition of victory. The blood shading, destruction of country, high cost of the war, the lost of innocent life’s and pollution of the environment are not worth especially when is based on false pretense.
Perry Wheeler Dr. Livengood WRIT 101 10/13/2010 Is It Worth Telling Over the past sixteen years society’s views on homosexuals has greatly changed. This has had an impact on the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy due to the argument of freedom of speech. The policy states that gay persons in the military could be discharged for admitting homosexuality but not for actually being gay. Kathleen Parker discusses “The military maybe a microcosm of society in some ways but it most definitely is not a democracy” (12). Although homosexual people believe that banning gays from the military violates their civilian rights; the military says that people give up the rights and freedoms when enrolling.
| Gays in the Military | Argument Essay | | | | English 101 20212 | The discriminatory "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" ban on gay and lesbian service members is officially a part of history. For 17 years, the law prohibited qualified gay and lesbian Americans from serving in the armed forces and sent a message that discrimination was acceptable. I believe there are many misconceptions that gays undermine military readiness, retention or compromise the quality of life of other military members. The beginning of a new chapter for the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell now has the opportunity to re-enlist Gay and lesbian Americans eager to serve their country, but
America used to have a good reputation in these nations but, as stated by Dr. James Zogby, founder of the Arab American Institute on July 12th of this year, “the lingering wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have changed that perception”. In fact, from a study of over 4,000 citizens from each Arab nation, conducted by the AAI, approval of President Obama’s policies were on average 10 percent or less. As anti-American sentiments grow stronger, there is not only less chances for diplomatic relations with these countries in the future but there is also an increased risk of terrorism attacks against the United States. Additionally, our interventions have not even resulted in viable democracies in either of these nations yet, which strongly indicates that democratic interventions by the United States in other nations don’t work. In the Arab nations studied by the AAI, “U.S.
American’s can’t “pinpoint any lasting way in which the stunning attacks brought Americans together, strengthened our national character, made us more willing to sacrifice or even changed the daily routine for most citizens of the United States”. The shaky economy is still present today, the United States’ GDP accounted for about 23 present of the world’s outputs. Today that has gone to about 19 present. The nation is in debt, 5.8 billion in 2001 and now over 15 trillion in 2011 which is about 100 present GDP. People wanted a memorial for 9/11 but this will cost the country more money and that fact that it will put them even more under isn’t helping either.
Illegal Aliens are harming our economy and are taking American jobs contrary to what you are led to believe. "Over the past 10 years, more than 2 million low-skilled American workers have been displaced from their jobs and each 10 percent increase in the immigrant workforce decreases U.S. wages by 3.5 percent" writes CNN financial analyst Lou Dobbs (Grigg 1). Current president George W. Bush and his political allies assure the public that illegal immigrants are doing jobs that nobody else wants. However, Steve Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies, points out "what they really mean is that they are doing the jobs that they as middle- and upper-class people don't want" (Grigg 1). Agriculture has many other instances of employers switching to immigrant workers whether they are legal or not to increase their profits.
Immigration is considered a serious issue in the United States today. Opinions of U.S citizens on immigration are divided. Although there is a division in personal opinion, the Washington Post/ ABC poll mentioned above suggested that a majority of Americans do not think that sending illegal immigrants home or punishing them will solve the problem of illegal immigration, and a more comprehensive solution requiring further understanding of the situation is needed. The Census Bureau estimates the US population will grow from 281 million in 2000 to 397 million in 2050 with the expected rate of immigration, but only to 328 million with zero immigration. "If we have zero immigration with today's low birthrates the American population would eventually
For example according to the paper in the 1950s 53 percent of Americans in their 20s read newspaper coverage of national politics, while today only about 30 percent watch any kind of news coverage and 24 percent don’t even care to watch at all. This shows that the argument of a decaying news audience is well supported by studies and statistics. Another big source of information for this essay is Nielsen/ NetRatings. Nielsen is a company that mainly focuses on providing companies such as NBC, CBS, and ABC numbers on many things including the number of viewers at a determined hour, peak times, primetime information and results on new shows. Although there are problems with Nielsen methods, for example they only survey people by phone calls and do not
Since when did it become a morally acceptable policy to solve social problems by killing millions of people? We can’t murder people just because some liberal population control groups assert that our planet is overcrowded, just as we couldn’t kill toddlers because there are too many kids in the house. Planned Parenthood wouldn’t agree with my logic. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood wrote, "The most merciful thing a large family can do for one of its infant members is to kill it.” Suppose there is a severe overpopulation problem. Suppose it could be demonstrated that the standard of living is higher in
In the first article, the author states, “The right-wing Parents Television Council, for example, announces that the per-hour rate in the United States of sexual and violent material and coarse language combined almost tripled from 1989 to 1999” (Cutler, 2004). Using “the right-wing” in reference to the Parents Television Council, rather than directly with the issue, show disdain for the group, and therefore, affects the truth of the author’s argument. Irrational statements such as, “Abused young women don't kill their battering husbands because they grew up watching Charlie's Angels, and teens who hear no criticism of the Gulf War tend to want another.”(Cutler, 2004), are also errors in truth because it has nothing substantial to back it up. The statement from the second article, “There is absolutely no doubt that those who are heavy viewers of this violence demonstrate increased acceptance of aggressive attitudes and increased aggressive behavior”(Donnerstein, 2004), leads to an illegitimate conclusion, because there is nothing absolute about the topic of media
