Liberty and Victory bonds were also sold. By buying these, Americans were loaning the government money. The US also came up with the Committee on Public Information. Their main goal was to get everyone to support the war by buying bonds to reporting people that dodged the draft. The way that the war was being fought changed drastically over the years.
The FWP progressed from a set of tour books, educational pamphlets, to essays of the state guides, ethnic studies, and folklore studies. The FWP's Life in America series had 150 volumes on a range of topics. Interviews with former slaves, farm and cotton-mill owners, and workers published in These Are Our Lives (1939) this gave more knowledge on American history. Larger defense budget in the years leading up to World War II took money away from the FWP. By 1939, budget cuts had forced the project to scale down to 3,500 workers, although it was so popular that every state provided money to keep it alive when Congress reduced funding in 1939.
Another example is the Vietnam War. The Vietnam War is known as the longest war in American history. The Vietnam war is also considered to be the most controversial. World War II helped our economy by mobilizing the unemployed and increasing manufacturing. The move industry also benefited from the war by producing and selling over 2,500 motion pictures during and after the war.
The 1909 budget was the Liberal’s key weapon in instagating social reform, with it’s radical plans to redistribute the burden of tax and the introduction of financial support such as the non-contributory pension. The Budget was quickly rejected by the landed majority in the House of Lords, beginning the first constitutional crisis of the twentieth century. Lloyd George, Chancellor of the Exchequer needed to find £15 million of extra revenue to provide for the new social services and for the construction of naval warships. He set out to tax the rich and especially those living on unearned income. His budget proposed; increased incomes tax on incomes over £3,000 a year, a new super tax on incomes over £5,000 a year, increased death duties on estates of over £5,000 a year,and new land taxes, indirect taxes on luxury goods such as petrol, beer and cars.
The invisible primary has often been tagged as the ‘money primary’ as it vital for candidates to accumulate ‘war chests’ by securing money from sponsors in order to set up the large campaigns. This was the case before the 2000 election in which President George Bush raised 30 million dollars just for the Invisible Primaries in the first quarter. Similarly, this was the case with Obama and Clinton who fought to secure funding for the invisible primaries. Under Obama’s supports was Penny Pritzker, part of the Hyatt family who gave huge financial support to Obama during the invisible primaries, essential to gain money in order to cover costs for the media coverage and campaigning. Elizabeth Dole campaigning for the Presidential nominee in 2000 actually dropped out of the race due to financial instability which is indicative that money is a huge factor in the invisible primaries.
Braulio Sanchez 5118986 Singer’s Unrealistic Solution In the New York Times article, “The Singer Solution to World Poverty,” Peter Singer tries to persuade his audience to donate a huge chunk of their annual earnings to charities that assist those children that are impoverished overseas. Singer does this by proposing almost insane, unrealistic ideas, such as donating more than half of their income and only living off of necessities. This, of course, is preposterous because as humans we want to have luxury items such as expensive TVs and fancy cars so we can enjoy our leisure time. When looking at this article its ineffectiveness becomes clear; this article in its entirety is a giant appeal to the readers’ emotions with not enough logical or reasonable arguments to support his argument. Although Singer has strong ethos because of his status as a philosopher, his essay is ineffective due to his misuse of two certain scenarios in order to persuade people to donate by making them feel guilty & relies far too much on pathos to persuade his audience rather than focusing on logos and ethos.
The Second Wave of American Slavery In 1938, Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed into law a minimum wage of $0.25 an hour. This was part of his initiative to lift the United States out of the Great Depression, and provide every American with a livable paycheck. Since then, the minimum wage has increased to account for inflation. However, many Americans are still working full time in poverty. This discouraging figure, along with the prohibitively high cost of a higher education has led to a second wave of slaves in the twenty-first century.

Incarceration costs are much higher, normally running around $18,100 per year per inmate, with another $43,756 needed just to build a new cell block. With the information provided I believe the theory of the non-traditional approach of the electronic monitoring is a good way to go to help save money and help local cities on their debts as well. These are in my personal opinion a great approach to the system. The second NON traditional approach with the prison system I’d like to address is the MRT which is a focus on changing how inmates think and make decisions. Counselors hold group sessions twice weekly with 8 to 15 clients per group so that it’s more of a personal feel for the inmates they can better focus on the topics and not feel as pressured.
The Highlanders were officially renamed to the Yankees in 1913 and in 1915 were purchased for $1.25 million by Col. Jacob Ruppert and Col. Tillinghast L’Hommedieu Huston (“Yankees Timeline” 1910s). In the era of the 1920s, a player by the name of Babe Ruth was traded from the Boston Red Sox and purchased by the Yankees for $125,000 and went on to be one of the most famous baseball players in the league. Just after the obtaining Babe Ruth, the Yankees decided they wanted more and made a huge purchase and bought a 10 acre property directly across the Harlem River in Manhattan for $675,000, which would then be the property for their team named stadium (“Yankee Stadium History” par. 2). They made the choice to design and create their own place to call home.
