How Betsy Devos Conducts Education Reforms Courtesy Of Vast Contributions from the Devos Family Foundation Betsy DeVos and the DeVos family are generally known for many things. Apart from serving as the 11th United States Secretary of Education, Betsy and her husband, Dick, have become synonymous with funding Republican candidates countrywide in the buildup to the General Elections. By funding, Betsy and the family at large have spent millions of dollars from their staggering fortune for campaign financing. However, Betsy DeVos has uniquely carved her reputation by spending a sizable amount from her fortune for philanthropic contributions. In essence, the billionaire couple’s charitable contributions paint a stark image of their Christian
Meaning that no one has the right to own a job because they’ll only get four years into working. He made this as a law because an officer duty was simple that everyone could qualify for it. Andrew Jackson’s law relates to Hillary Clinton because she would’ve given immigrants job opportunities if she were to win presidency.The article Clinton May Rely on Executive Actions More
While the NAACP participates in lobbying, their main political tactics have traditionally been grassroots organizing and litigation. Since 1913, when the NAACP began establishing branch offices (there are now over 2,000 units), the organization has based much of its success on local organizing efforts (“Oldest and Boldest”). In April 2016, they mobilized in Washington, D.C. in order to “protect voting rights, get big money out of politics, and demand an up or down vote on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee” (“Democracy Awakening 2016”). They also organized locally to get voters registered in the November 2016 presidential election. When political organization has failed, the NAACP has found great success with litigation, particularly
The National Rifle Association (NRA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1871, which advocates gun rights. With more than five million members the NRA, is seen as one of the top three most influential lobbying groups in Washington, DC. While watching the NRA Ad, I expected and noticed that the lady in the NRA Ad, spoke on the right/conservative side of the spectrum. Because the NRA is conservative, it was expected that the Ad addressed a problem with there not being enough access to guns. The lady in the ad uses the word “they” several times to address the left or liberal side of the politic spectrum.
Although Giffords used advanced and well-developed diction, she was able to communicate clearly and unambiguously. Logos are also developed by citing facts and statistics. Giffords explains, “These senators made their decision based on political fear and on cold calculations about the money of special interests like the National Rifle Association, which in the last election cycle spent around $25 million on contributions, lobbying and outside spending.” Senators gave into fear and failed to protect the citizens of American. Giffords stamped those who voted against the bill as cowards. She states the amount as a bold print to prove that she knows exactly how much was spent in the last election cycle.
It is an un-American and evil worldview, which makes Rand’s influence on the Republican party all the more terrifying. House Speaker Paul Ryan has his interns read her work; GOP leaders from Ted Cruz to Ron Paul and Rush Limbaugh sing her praises; the Tea Party Movement, the dominant force among conservatives today, cites Rand as one of its most important philosophers. And her vision is deeply embedded in the policy proposals the GOP puts forward, which if enacted, would eviscerate the American safety net. Since Trump took office, Republicans have proposed laws that would rob 32 million people of health insurance, fund a border wall by drastically reducing poverty programs, and cut $1.8 trillion from Medicare, Medicaid and Obamacare in order to pay for tax cuts for the
For many who had HIV or AIDs, they were rejected from society. Fisher appeals to the audience using the President Bush Sr. and his family to persuade the audience. By naming the president and his family and stating what they have done for Fisher, “In the place of judgement, they have shown affection,” Fisher shows that President and his family are not treating her any different. She shows that instead of stunning and treating a person that is HIV positive cruelly, “they have embraced me...” By using him first family in her speech, Fisher uses reasoning to drive one of her main points to the American society for the change of treatment for those with AIDS. That they should not be treated any differently than they were before it was known that they had
Donald Trump is a conservative billionaire running for president in the United States. According to CNN, most of the people who voted for Donald trump are the first time voters throughout 31 cities in the country. There were more than 150 people who showed up in droves to see Donald Trump, men and women overwhelmingly white because they are frustrated with the countries first black president, “Barack Obama”, fearful that they are being displaced by minority and immigrants and nostalgic for the way America used to be. Throughout the essay, I will mention why Donald trump shouldn’t become the president because of how he is stereotyping religions. In the incendiary statement, that comes within the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., Trump says, “Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension.
These accusations surfaced before his election and after he bragged about “grabbing p***y”. Despite the allegations made against Trump, over fifty-nine thousand people voted for Trump, showing the lack of importance sexual assault has in our society. The dismissive nature of our country to sexual assault dehumanizes women the same way we see in
Bernie Bishop Mazda is a large automotive client in Medford who wanted to cancel all advertising in their local market and focus on print advertising in outer markets.

Kohn uses rarely in her article “Don’t Click on Celebrity Nude Photos, ISIS Videos.” She uses it by saying “According to a recent Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, in 2013, 78% of Americans had heard about the Supreme Court’s Obamacare decision, 77% of Americans were aware of the debt ceiling fight in Congress, and 79% of Americans had heard about the alleged use of chemical weapons by Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria. But fully 94% of Americans were aware that ISIS killed James Foley.” (Kohn 180) This made me actually realize how powerful social media is. Social media always put out the bad and not the good but also they put out what people care about. People mainly care about the bad things happening in the world but don’t really focus on the good. This actually shows what Americans really care about and it’s really sad.
(Prezi Inc) “One million physicians and patients contact Congress through the AMA Physician Grassroots Network to speak out about the cuts and the threat they posed to patient care.” (Prezi Inc) The AMA office of alcohol abuse promotes lobbies for less alcohol ads and more tax of alcohol to reduce alcohol abuse. In the past, was fighting again Truman and his lobbying group because he wanted to pass a bill which The AMA disagreed with. (UMHM) Now, The AMA
One of the most significant points in Armentano’s argument is his presentation of a Pew Research Center poll that reports, “60 percent of Americans believe the government ‘should not enforce federal marijuana laws in states that allow use’” (Wanlund 2015, 881). His presentation of a public opinion poll in which the numerical majority concur with his argument makes his argument seem well supported. When addressing why this method of problem definition can be so effective, Stone notes, “People react to being counted or measured… The process of counting something makes people notice it more” (Stone 2012, 203). Measuring evidence in numerical terms, according to the author of Policy Paradox, is an extremely effective way of persuading the public to see problems with policy proposals. Although quantitative measurements are easily manipulated and polls like the one Armentano uses as evidence can be perceived in different perspectives, Stone notes the effectiveness of numbers in defining policy
Dear Immigration officer (Diversity Section) I am writing your attention today after reading an essay about “What A Big Deal About Immigration”. I did research on your immigration website to find out why illegal immigrants try to enter the U.S. illegally in spite there are diversity visa available. To my surprise I found out the main reason for people from India, China, Pakistan and other parts of Asia even Central America trying to enter the U.S. illegally each year because they are not eligible for diversity visa, which leave them no option to enter the U.S. illegally. Every year 14 million people registered and only 50,000 visa available, 5,000 visas are reserve for emergency. Where 20,000 people either not meeting the requirement, miss
