Furthermore, Howard Zinn talks about the humanizing of oppressors. Initially, he brings up Christopher Columbus, a historical figure that is glossed over as someone that discovered America rather than a colonist that killed people for gold. He then talks about how Andrew Jackson’s expel of the Native Americans forced them into deadly and poor land, while many died in the movement from place to place. The FBI is often heroes in movie when in reality, they were watching people get beaten and murdered at their most desperate time of need. Zinn highlights the lies told by Hollywood’s films.
“Father of Black Psychology”, what is the first thing that come to mind to the sound of this title?

The 2010 Kansas gubernatorial election was held on November 2, 2010. Incumbent Governor Mark Parkinson, a former Republican who switched to the Democratic Party, had assumed office when the previous Governor Kathleen Sebelius was sworn in as the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services under President Barack Obama. Governor Parkinson declined to seek election, even though he had labored to get a stimulus package from the federal government for Kansas. United States Senator Sam Brownback, who unsuccessfully ran for president in 2008, emerged as the Republican nominee, facing off against Democratic State Senator Tom Holland, who was unopposed for his party's nomination. Owing to the large amount of popularity that he had accumulated during his tenure in the United States Senate, Brownback defeated Holland in a landslide election to become the 46th Governor of Kansas. This election resulted in the election of Sam Brownback who is a conservative and was a big break in Kansas political history because Kansas gubernatorial elections since 1930 have always resulted in a moderate candidate winning the election.

Kelly followed up asking Cruz why “doesn’t make sense" to draft women in combat. “It risks putting women in an unsafe situation,” Cruz said. “If you are dealing with a 200 pound jihadist, the idea that we would be forcibly take our daughters and put them in the position of close combat doesn’t make sense. The job of our war fighters is to defeat the enemy not to be a cauldron for social experiments or political correctness.”
The candidate that choose to talk about is Rand Paul. While I do not agree with some of his policies. I do agree with his stance on criminal justice reform. He would try to create a judicial process for adults to seal their non-violent records. This currently prevents many people from finding employment. Which leaves them with the only option to commit crimes again. He would give judges the power to depart from mandatory minimums laws if they are on the best interest of the law. This is would be very beneficial for us since people make stupid mistakes sometimes and life in prison is way too severe. Also having a person sent to prison cost money, especially if they have serve a life sentence. He would restore voting rights of every non-violent
Ken Coleman’s main approach to persuading his audience is through sound logic and reasoning. This occurs several times, beginning with his statement about different agency heads lacking qualifications. He states that Donald Trump has appointed agency heads such as “Rich Perry, U.S. Department of the Energy chief, campaigned for president by pledging to eliminate the very agency he heads” (Coleman para. 6). Coleman then continues, citing several more agency heads which clearly lack the necessary credentials to hold high positions in the government. By showing this lack of credibility in the government, he is able to make the readers ask themselves questions and doubt the government, therefore doubting today’s America. He also continues, showing that the poverty rate has more than doubled in the city of detroit since 1967, rather than decline (Coleman para. 9). Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech aimed at fixing the “other America”, but Coleman shows that America has gone the wrong way since then. Through logical reasoning and facts, Ken Coleman helps the reader to logically understand his argument and realize that the problem does still exist

One of the things that I looked for when looking for two speeches to compare and contrast was one speech given by a Republican governor, and another by a Democratic governor. I believe if you were to compare two speeches from the same party they would have been too similar and very little to contrast. The two speeches that I choose were Governor Gary Herbert of Utah and Governor Peter Shumlin of Vermont. One of the biggest things that stood out right away was the focuses of the speech. Gary Herbert the Republican immediately focused on economic issues such as educational funding, He asked his legislators to focus on economic improvement in rural areas, air quality improvement and increasing access to health care. Governor Peter Shumlin the Democrat focuses most of his speech on his legacy and social issues. This is his final term as Governor due to him not seeking reelection so a lot of his speech was discussing his legacy, and what he hopes the next Governor would accomplish. Some of the issues discussed were expand opiate addiction treatment services, paid sick and maternity leave, he also
“Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.” Stephen King has had his fair share of inner demons throughout his life and is not afraid to express his experiences with them through his writing. Stephens genre of choice is horror, which makes sense when you consider the nature of his inner demons. He has expressed what they consist of through various forms of writing and in many of his interviews. What he expressed mainly involves three aspects of his life. American novelist, Stephen King, uses his life experience to convey his drug addictions, inspirations, and fear within his writing.
