Blaming Montana for the events of one cataclysmic summer would just remove responsibility and imply that such events were acceptable in that environment. In the novel Montana 1948 there is much controversy on who or what can be blamed for such major events. The town of Montana cannot be blamed for events such as Frank Hayden’s rape of Indian girls, his murder of Marie Little Soldier or his suicide at the end of the novel with the constant decision of whether Frank should or shouldn’t be locked up for his actions. It can be argued that the characters of Montana are solely to blame but it can also be said that the town and the insane environment of Montana is at fault. The isolated and barren town of Montana cannot be blamed for such catastrophic events.
After the massacre the Commissioner of Indian affairs tried to prove they were not put in situations that forced them to rebel/ run away (refused food; starved, not provided with warm proper clothing they were promised in the treaty, driven off their lands and forced to stay confined on a reservation that wasn’t theirs). 5. Why did A Century of Dishonor strike so positive a chord among readers, including U.S
The “Border Insecurity” editorial claims that due to the mountainous landscape of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, “pouring billions into building a real fence-is viewed as simply insane” (1). However, an editorial from the Dallas Morning News entitled, “The Fence Must Go Up,” furthered my adamant belief that the border is, and will be an effective solution with continual help from Washington. If Texans, who are most affected by the fence, believe the reform to be, as the editorial clearly states, “a saner immigration system,” the New York Times is devoid of any valid concrete evidence to call the system “insane” (1). Both of the editorials discuss a primary flaw some may see with the whole idea of a fence. The “Border Insecurity” editorial displays uncertainty about the fence because, “In Texas, the fence is a dotted line, blocking some places but not others” (2).
This trigger is held highly among determinist historians as one of the reasons the republic was doomed to fail from the start. Article 48 was a major flaw in the constitution as it compeletely ignored the point of democracy, effectively turning the country into an autocratic rule. This left the country at the mercy of the President, and effectively bypassed the whole point of having a democracy entirely. This is one of the direct causes of the downfall of the democracy as it was this very article that granted President Hindenburg power to hire Adolf Hitler as chancellor against the concensus of the reichstag. It was this that was to be the final nail in the coffin of the Weimar Republic and therefore is one of the reasons for the downfall of the Republic.
He has written a book titled Freedom on Fire where in one chapter he discusses why the United States Failed to Act in Rwanda. One of his main reasons is that Somalia had soured the taste for intervening in African countries. After the Somalia debacle, people in Washington began to point fingers at everyone but themselves. Congress blamed the United Nations and the executive branch as well. Shattuck believes that since President Clinton handled the draft issue and the issue of gays in the military poorly the Pentagon was not holding Clinton in high respects.
These people challenged the federal bank’s constitutionality (2). He shows the farmers malcontent attitude in this statement, “They mistrusted the central bank, seeing in it both the subordination of the states prerogatives and a federal government that was exceeding its powers”(2). McDonough also feels that the farmers or agrarians could be held responsible for the destruction of the second bank. They were able to do this under the leadership of President Jackson. The failure to renew this second bank charter allowed for a generation of “bank anarchy and monetary disorder ”(2).
It is the home of the free and land of the brave. Yet it seems since these attacks, America has repeatedly failed many of our citizens by not protecting them or them being falsely accused. We must realize that there is a greater picture here. If we are so willing to stray from the rules and laws our country is built upon, doesn’t that make us closer to a bigger evil- the dissolution of our nation and government? Quite frankly, that terrifies me.
He also learns that his grandfather was a dominating, immoral and scheming. David and his parents went face to face with dealing with the consequences of Frank’s crime. Racial prejudice means any action practice or belief that reflects the racial world view the ideology that humans are divided into separate groups because of their skin colour. The American Indians are racially prejudiced by most of the people in Montana, they are going through a hard life and living in a desolate reservation; also their lands are probably the least valuable compare to other regions. David eventually learns of the racial discriminations such as not allowing “an athlete like Ronnie” to attend college.
The Justice Department had argued Alvarez's statements deserved no legal protection because they had little value, and that there was a larger societal need to "protect speech that matters," in this case the valor and integrity of military heroes who rightfully earned their medals. The high court earlier last year struck down another federal law, this one designed to stop the sale and marketing of videos showing dogfights and other acts of animal cruelty. The 8-1 majority said it was an unconstitutional violation of free speech. The federal Stolen Valor Act was designed to "protect the reputation" of military decorations, citing "fraudulent claims surrounding the receipt of the Medal of Honor (and other congressionally authorized military medals, decorations, and awards)." Similar laws have been in place since 1948.
In this Act treaties signed by American agents and representatives of Indian tribes guaranteed peace and the integrity of Indian Territory’s primarily to assure that the lucrative fur trade would continue without interruption. American settlers wanted the Indian land extremely bad, but that led to violent conflict in many cases and succeeding treaties generally compelled tribes to cede large areas to the Unites States government. (cite) But must this remind you that, this happened centuries ago and nobody who was involved with this act is alive , so our laws today shouldn’t compile to what happened many years
