Despite this, the U.S. Mint keeps churning out a billion pennies a month.” The complete waste of time and money spent producing these pennies just to be forgotten in the couch cushions is astounding. If every penny is 1.8 cents to produce than the government is giving away 800 million USD every single year. The same article says, “...10 million new useless items punched out by government workers who could be more usefully employed tracking counterfeiters.” In other words, the government isn’t only wasting money on penny production but, also a working staff. U.S. currency could be more protected if it wasn’t for the pesky penny. To sum up, if people took the time to research how the penny was affecting us as a nation we could be closer to the
Explanation: This quote to me seems like Villasenor is trying to imply that getting into the U.S.A is as easy as breaking through a wall of electric fences. He also shows how he views Americans as rich and wasteful since he believes that the amount of food thrown away in one day can feed a whole town. Method #3: In The Color of Crime, Katheryn K. Russell illustrates, "Racial targeting and abuse by police is costly. U.S. taxpayers have paid tens of millions of dollars in police brutality lawsuits. Between 1992 and 1993, Los Angeles county alone paid more than $30 million to citizens victimized by police brutality” (45).
Everyone makes mistakes in life, some are excusable and some are not. Thomas Hobbes felt that if there were no contract then people would just act on instinct- rape, pillage etc- human beings in their natural state are inclined to war and distrust. There is a reason why we have the prison system, so that criminals pay for their actions and to protect the people. He states he has a wife that is expecting and two kids on the way. If he is a good and harmless guy as he states he is then it would never cross his mind to being involved in an
For every dollar China spends on its military, the U.S. spends $2.77 (www.nationalpriorities.org). My point is that if countries who have bad budget priorities are turned around then every child in every country could easily afford an education. Governments are not going to reallocate their funds to finance global education to make a positive change in the world because it is not in their best
In total, 18 million people die each year from poverty-related causes. These are preventable deaths that the crisis is aggravating. Playing commercial casino doesn 't come free. The World Bank estimated that 22 more children would die per hour in 2009 (one every three seconds) for preventable
Scott Stringer issued a report calling for total removal of the commercial Bail Bonds in the city, hoping it would eventually lead to the states and the nation. In Stringer’s report is said that the city spends $100 million a year to lock up people who are too poor to make bail. This was news to one of the biggest bail bond business owner in New York. She claimed that Bail Bond businesses are small functional and integral part of the criminal justice system for New York. $10,000 bond costs $860 in New York, the lowest premium in the nation.
In a society where corruption is prevalent, anyone can take everything away from someone. Corrupt officials may rob off one’s money and human rights, an unfaithful partner may take away one’s self-respect, and the abusive powerful people may take away one’s dignity. However, no matter how horrendous these conditions are, no one can ever take away that spiritual freedom within oneself for he is the only one in control of this. He is the main controller in his own game of life. He is the master of his
But honestly, all in all, it 's not really worth the cost. Americans spend hundreds of dollars on equipment for no reason. Research from the article high cost of youth sports shows that parents spend at least $671 on average to cover the cost of uniforms and registration fees. Private lessons are a pain in the but, research shows that parents spend $20 million on out-of-school sports. But that’s not all Organized in school sports cost $45 million annually, according to the high cost of youth sports.There is a $5 billion industry just on organized teams, that is unfortunate because anybody could start a neighborhood team/league for free.
This should be a clear reason why sports should be gone because schools pay 2x as much on a small percent of the student body whereas, all students take math classes. Schools can save so much money by closing down sports. For example, a Texas school district, that is $400,000 in debt and on the verge of closing , can save $150,000 by
These justifications, according to the article include the denial of injury. This mean that they accept the responsibility of the act but argue that it is acceptable because no one is injured. This has been proven false by countless amounts of data and studies regarding the same topic. Some people involved in this act have directly come out and stated that it may in fact cause harm to the child because there is simply no way around the truth. Another justification is the condemnation of the condemners or rejecting those who reject them.
