My Argument In America we have so many different types of addictions while soda is in the top ten. Soda is hard to stop drinking because it is just as addicting as alcohol, Americans are slowly killing themselves with their bad habits. America as a nation is in a huge debate over the ban of soda in different states. I say that we should not be ban it from our nation and a lot of others will agree people such as Kelly McGonigal Ph.D. To begin I would like to make is that by banning something will only make us as American’s want it even more. You can never tell us no.
If the government would anonymously give welfare recipients a drug and alcohol test once a month, then the amount of people who abuse the welfare system would dramatically decrease. If the person who is anonymously tested monthly fails his/her drug or alcohol test, then he/she should immediately be cut from their benefits and should be charged with governmental fraud and with illegal drug charges as well. By doing this, the people wouldn’t have to pay as much money to the government, there would be less drug abuse in the system, and there would also be a very large drop in the amount of welfare abuse in the
After four days passed Melissa contacted Rachel after she had found out that Rachel was getting married to another women. It disgusted Melissa that a gay couple would get married; let alone ask her to bake a cake for their wedding. Devastated, Rachel and Laurel filed a complaint to the Department of Justice. Then between January 17th to mid February both couples go on countless amounts of talk shows and newspapers and by the end of February the Department of Justice drops the case. Next on August 8th, Rachel files a complaint with the Bureau of Labor and Industries, spurring an investigation, and this complaint will later be investigated.
Even though the fence along the U.S./Mexico border is already being built, it should not continue being built because it is expensive, hurts the environment, and immigration rates have significantly dropped. With the wall comes its high costs like the cost of materials to build it or the money paid to the workers that are building it. When President Trump was doing the presidential campaign, he predicted the border was going to cost about twelve billion dollars, but that turned out to be untrue. Vanda Felbab-Brown herself writes, "... A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) internal report in February put the cost at $21.6 billion, but that may be a major underestimate.” Most of this is due to the size of the wall and all the fees that come along with building the wall on other territories. You would think that Trump would pay for it all himself but, that is simply not the case.
For instance, from the article “The effects of minimum wage” by David Neumark states that employers will try to keep away from low-skilled workers if the wage were to increase because it would cause them to be wasting money to train them; especially for students and high school graduates who are in absence of any work experience. With minimum wage increasing for the past couple of years it makes it difficult on employers who run small businesses to hire more new workers because they too are also citizens that have to pay their taxes and extra just to keep their business up and running. Such as the author Gina Kim who wrote the article “Minimum wage: helpful or harmful for small businesses” states that 85% of small businesses pay workers a bit more than the minimum to keep their workers interested in the job and they have to make profits out of their business to keep it on track. These businesses cannot innovate if the wage increases because then the labor market will pick up the prices on materials as well creating more of a problem for small business owners to keeping their company open for as long as possible and their solution would be to not hire a lot of employees. This pretty much explains the reasoning about how it will be troublesome for new fresh workers trying to just gain experience and get hard earned
The Danish Ban on Fortified Breakfast Cereals Case 192/01 Commission of the European Communities versus Kingdom of Denmark Introduction In 2004, the Danish Authorities banned the sale of over 18 fortified breakfast cereals and cereal bars manufactured by Kellogg’s on the basis that higher levels of vitamins and minerals could cause Danish consumers to exceed upper tolerable levels of nutrients in their diet. This could potentially have a detrimental effect on kidneys and the lives of children and pregnant women. The Danish Diet It is proposed that about 28% of children and 26% of adults in Denmark consume a supplemental vitamin pill on a daily basis annually, while another 28% and 12% respectively take supplements in the winter season according to most recent dietary survey data 2000-2002. This indicates that a large
According to Harvard Health, millions of Americans are not taking their “medications due to their high cost” (LeWine). Cost should not be the reason that people go without their medicine, something they need. Lack of medicine can lead to hospital trips and death. It is in this way that prescription drugs are similar to water. Those who take medicine are dependant on it, and absence of the drug can be disastrous, as lack of water is terrible for the body.
Some people make the switch because to a plant-based “milk” for health reasons or otherwise. There exists just one major problem with that shift. Labeling those fakers “milk” is confusing to consumers. This confusion has caused a drop of over one billion dollars in the milk market in the last five years (Prescott). Plant-based “milks” should not be called milk because they differ from real milk in definition, composition, and nutritional value.

According to "Got Milk ? You Don 't Need It," Mark Bittman (2012) suggests that "propaganda" is being stimulate by the American government despite the fact many people have sensitivity toward milk, and there is other alternative to milk. The writer focuses on the reasons why people do not have to drink milk. First, he is explaining that milk allergy is one of the most common allergies in United of States, and that many people are suffering from stomach problems. Moreover, he provides his experience with cutting dairy output to cure his stomach issues
This action taken by the government into the investigation of the monopoly of EpiPens has uncovered that Mylan has been misclassifying the EpiPens for years. Mylan was supposed to classify EpiPen as a single source (meaning brand name drug) which would require them to provide Medicaid rebate of 23.1% of the cost and inflation rebate, but instead they classified it as a generic version of a drug which only requires 13% Medicaid rebate of the cost and no inflation rebate (Mole). This may cause the government to give Mylan penalties, and it may cause the government to make claims on sales. The government is penalizing and criticizing Mylan for using the system incorrectly, and the government is supporting generic versions of EpiPens and different brands to come to the United States to stop the monopoly and increase competition. Although some patent laws created by the government have created an epinephrine auto-injector monopoly in the United States, the government is working now to eliminate this monopoly and penalize Mylan for using it to its
It appears that the men are a little upset about the CEO of GE not paying taxes. Both guys said some angry words which is “It General Electric’s latest product… It bores loopholes in the tax code.” The other guy replied and said “And that why GE doesn’t pay taxes!” This may have happened around March 26, 2011 because it is stated. The cartoon expresses on how the CEO of GE doesn’t pays the taxes but he can manage to make new products that doesn’t seem to grab anyone’s attention but it costs him in taxes. As you can see, the drill and the book seems to be the symbol of everything, it shows you how the CEO of GE doesn’t pay his taxes, instead he tries making new products which he probably can’t afford. People who are against the GE would probably agree that he isn’t doing what he should do with the
Abidjan Bright Badih Elarba Texas Politics 1133.010 Fall 2015 Voter ID law in Texas It was in 2011 that the Legislature passed Bill 14 that allowed Texas to have a strict voter ID law for the November election. Many people were opposed to this because it limited many eligible citizens from voting causing a lower voter turnout than what Texas has already had. This is a major problem in Texas because majority of our population consists of immigrants from Mexico and many of them are still fighting for citizenship. Because of this law it is in question, how much power does our state actually have in the regulation of elections? Limits on voter qualifications are stated in the US constitution and within federal laws as well.
• Iowa Congressman Steve King filed an amendment to a Treasury Department funding bill to prohibit the department from redesigning currency to showcase Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. He added the effort to replace Andrew Jackson was “liberal activism on the part of the president that’s trying to identify people by categories.” (I recall Reason doing a fair amount of coverage when the Tubman news first broke, so this could be a good follow-up) http://www.politico.com/story/2016/06/house-could-vote-to-block-harriet-tubman-from-20-bill-224637 • In November, Californians will have the opportunity to repeal the state’s death penalty law.
