Hunting The White-Tail Deer
... roads. Ten thousand white-tail deer get hit by cars and die each year while they try to find new eating grounds.2 Not only is this wasting meat, but it causes severe damage to cars. Deer can even cause car accidents on the highway, killing humans as well. Also, deer are constantly getting pushed into the city because of little food due to the over-populated area of deer. Unfortunately, this causes a hassle in major cities when people try to catch the deer without harming it. Debra Fluitt, a citizen of Tulsa, Oklahoma, said, “Last year a big white-tail deer came into my very own house as I was unloading groceries ...
Hip-Hop Nation Report
... This quote condenses what the writer of the article is trying to promote to the reader in just a few words. For the last 25 years the conservative masses have been trying to stop, ignore and turn a blind eye to the Hip-Hop revolution, mainly because of its origins and political stances. Unfortunately for some this has failed miserably with Hip-Hop being the strongest it has ever been at the present. But people are now starting to accept it somewhat; for example record companies have been cashing in on its popularity for some time now. The writer of the Feature Article Hip Hop Nation Christopher John Farley is not ...
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
... is, and how they have affected our society.
The ACLU, American Civil Liberties Union, is an organization that began
the struggle to protect the civil liberties of the American people. The ACLU is
defined as being a US non-partisan organization offering legal aid and other
assistance in cases of violation of civil liberties.(Websters) Civil liberties
contain a substantial body of law including: freedom of speech and press,
separation of church and state, free exercise of religion, due process of law,
equal protection, and privacy.(Walker 3) The Encyclopedia of the Constitution
defines civil liberties as "those r ...
The Need For Congress In The U.S
... might even say it is the most important. This is due to the roles
Congress pays in our government. Congress is responsible for the lawmaking in
our country as well as implementing national policy. The power to make laws was
given to Congress by our forefathers when they constructed our constitution.
Passing laws is very important to our country because without them we would be
living in chaos. Of course, all our laws are not perfect but for the most part
our Congress does a good job at keeping this country under control. The
problems with lawmaking that most people see is the time involved in getting a
law passe ...
... that hold a "pro-life" view argue that a woman who has an is killing a child. The "pro-choice" perspective holds this is not the case. A fetus is not yet a baby. It does not posess the criteria derived from our understanding of living human beings. In a notable defense of this position, philosopher Mary Anne Warren has proposed the following criteria for "person-hood": 1) consciousness (of objects and events external and or internal to the being), and in particular the capacity to feel pain. 2) reasoning (the developed capacity to solve new and relatively complex problems) 3) self-motivated activity (activity which ...
Response To Wilson's "Just Take Away Their Guns"
... with reasonable-suspicion
would have too many negative effects to even consider enforcing in the
The first part of Wilson's plan is to train police to be able to
spot people that look like they are carrying guns. How does one pick
someone out of a crowd that looks like they are carrying a gun? I don't
think it is possible to look at someone and tell if they are carrying a gun
or not. That is ridiculous. Just because of the way someone looks doesn't
mean that they are carrying a gun. What criteria should be used to
determine if someone looks like when they are carrying a gun? Do they put
on baggy ...
Scottish Nationalism And Devolution
... This involvement appears to be ending in the near future. With an election held earlier in the year, the Scots won back the right to form their own parliament. According to an essay entitled “ Why Scotland needs Independence”, the Scottish National Party and New Labor are neck and neck as to whom will have the majority of seats in the new Scottish Parliament.
The parliament marks the first time in 290 years that Scotland has had their own rule. Right now the parliament will only be responsible for home affairs. However, there is a thought as to if devolution will be Scotland’s future. If devolution does oc ...
When Does Life Begin
... that human life begins when the soul is created. Others object that such answers cannot be used as a basis for law, because that would be a violation of separation of church and state. . There is a far bigger problem with such a definition of life. In the essay, “?,” Jay Johansen says, “…the soul definition, this one may be philosophically interesting but is of little practical use, as it is not at all clear how we could determine when someone first becomes conscious”. The author means that no one knows when the soul is created, and it is difficult to see how we could find out. If someday, someone invented some ...
The Higher Education Act Is Unfair To Students
... solve their problems instead of causing the student more trouble. The statement this law makes is unreal. If you go by this law, convicted murderers, rapist and even drunk drivers could receive aid for college. No other criminal offenses deny students the right to receive aid for their education. Congress is using this law directed at non-violent drug offenders to show that congress is tough on drugs. This must mean congress supports murderers, rapist and thieves right to receive financial aid.

In Richard Bernstein’s, “A War of Words” he says, “Advocates of believe that it represents the best chance for non-English speaking children -- who, not so coincidentally, often come from lower-income groups – to enjoy the richness and opportunities of American life”, but he also writes, “… is a failure, a tactic that in the end will harm the chances of the generally poor, non-English speaking children ever having a equal share in the promise of American life.” By simply having everyone learn a second langua ...
