A complete quote from Mr. Martin Bashir, late of MSNBC, but worked there at the time of this quote. "1) Criticizing the IRS: "Republicans are using [the IRS scandal] as their latest weapon in the war against the black man. ‘IRS’ is the new 'N****r. '" -- Martin Bashir Or maybe. "6) Saying that Barack Obama lies: "Surrounded by middle-aged white guys — a sepia snapshot of the days when such pols ran Washington like their own men’s club — Joe Wilson yelled “You lie!” at a president who didn’t. But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!"
Throughout the movie, President Shepperd is continuously struggling to keep high approval ratings, during primary season. When he and Sydney begin falling in love, the opposing party, Senator Bob Runsom, denounces the president and Sydney during interviews and press conferences, causing the media to go crazy. Public announcements are made, saying that Sydney once participated in a protest, in which an American Flag was burned. This along with the fact that she is a lobbyist for a special interest group, causes the American citizens to change their opinion of the president, based on the company he keeps in his personal life. The effect is the president’s popularity decreasing, affecting his political influence; taking a major hit in the polls.
Wag the Dog, a movie based on the book “American Hero” by Larry Beinhart, gets its name from the quote: “Why does the dog wag its tail? Because it is smarter than its tail. If it wasn’t smarter the tail would wag the dog.” Before an election the president becomes entangled in a scandal of having an affair with an underage firefly girl, something similar to a girl scout. His advisor, played by Robert De Niro hires a Hollywood producer, played by Dustin Hoffman, to divert the media attention by creating a fake war. Although they keep having troubles with the fake war, including choosing a war hero, played by Woody Harrelson, who they find out is a war prisoner because he is criminally insane and after meeting up with Harrelson, he was
He has attempted to present gambling as the panacea to cure all Alabama’s economic problems. John Robertson, a former Alabama governor, said “gambling brings the bad people to town and brings out the bad in good people.” Alabamians should have good reasons to oppose legalizing gambling. In the 1940s and early 1950s, Phenix City became the “wickedest city in America” and the home of a powerful crime syndicate. Albert Patterson was murdered in 1954 because he waged a race for attorney general on the promise to rid Phenix City of gambling. Phenix City became such a “Sin City” that Governor Gordon Persons had to declare martial law and to call the National Guard to clean the city.
The beginning of the speech went fairly well as he was honoring Washington, however, he ended up ridiculing Congress. President Johnson usually spoke harshly about Congress and his mouth had the tendency to get him in trouble. In his speech, Johnson said, “I find men I care not by what name you call them…who still stand opposed to the restoration of the Union of these States.” He later would call out Thaddeus Stevens, Charles Sumner, and Wendell Phillips for plotting his assassination. In his speech, Johnson said, “I say that I have no doubt the intention was to incite assassination, and so get out of the way the obstacle from place and power.” Thaddeus Stevens and the radical Republicans viewed Johnson’s speech as a declaration of war. Andrew Johnson was a man who was not afraid to speak out against Congress.
I do not think that we should increase border patrol because people that need to get out of another country because of say war, or poverty. For them to be safe, they can come to the United States and start a brand new life and not have to worry about their home being destroyed from bombings. I believe that we are too harsh about security in the first place. There is no need to build a wall or a fence because there are less expensive and intrusive ways to restrict access such methods as virtual walls using sophisticated monitoring or employment restrictions. There are many good things that come from not increasing border security.
He warns the council that although a proposition may seem appealing they must not be fooled by it for a man will do anything to be believed and even though they may not notice the deception the state will not be fooled. However, Diodotus understand that the Mytilenians should not be left unchecked, he agrees with Cleon in concern of the future but not the death sentence of the Mytilenians. For if they do impose the death penalty it would only cost the country instead, he suggest something else, “we should be looking for a method by which, empowering moderation in our punishments, we can in the future secure ourselves the full use of those cities which bring us important contributions” (p.221). He brings up the error in which led them to the revolt for by forcefully subduing a free country it lead its populace to assert its dominance, so the country at this point must care for them to avoid having the same thing happen. And if they choose to continue with the death
As we may know, breaking the law is not always justified. It may lead to dysfunction and chaos in our society. Laws are created and exist to keep the citizens secure, safe, and from behaving in a negative manner that will greatly affect the quality of our lives. Everyone knows that the law should not be broken due to them being an essential piece of humanity, however "the only reason the law should ever be broken by someone was if it was necessary to stay alive or to defeat injustice. The law should protect everyone and if it 's not doing that whether it be due to oppression or survival, it is OK to break it" (Debate.org).
In fact, it is more of a burden to not vaccinate within the state because of the immunization requirements and the process of doing paperwork to be exempted. Regardless, there is no retributive justice, or punishment for those who choose not to vaccinate. The government understands that the goals of the community may not resonate with every family, and they are willing to make exemptions. The incredible accessibility of the vaccination program and the numerous resources demonstrates a clear will to enable everyone to vaccinate their
The ideas behind this moral distinction is that in passive euthanasia the doctors are not actively killing anyone but they are just not saving the patients. Most people think that euthanasia can be justifiable, when the patients are facing incurable disease, undergoing suffer, terminally ill and requests for euthanasia as their last wishes. For instance, Somerville (2010) argued that it is important to respect the people’s right of self-determination and autonomy. In other words, people should have the right to choose their time of dying but the state have prevented and stop them from doing it.
