Babcock used Grant’s power to help people evade taxes in the Whiskey Ring Scandal. After the Prohibition, alcohol manufacturers were heavily taxed.
I do not agree with the statement because the congress has went down because of many presidencys failures and mistakes. Our government does not have much power and is not as strong because of many wrongdoings of legislatures and people in the white house. Some people say that our government is good, but in reality it isn’t. Many others countries have been offending us and doing stuff to out computers and technology and the U.S. does nothing about it. Many cops are killing people for no reason and the governmet doesn’t stop them because they keep on doing it.
May states “His outrage at the ludicrousness of sociopolitical fads and the stupidity of the people who support them are both at play in this story.” (May).

People today can vote on who they believe seem beneficial for their needs. Their need to be a change to where there's more flexibility for people to rotate their schedule around.

Americans litter everyday and think nothing of it. Author Frank Trippett in his passage “A Red Light for Scofflaws” claims that Americans are becoming scofflaws when it comes to minor laws. He uses littering and speeding as examples of minor laws people tend to break. He continues by describing what americans think minor crimes. He sets a tone of disapproval to the people that do not care if they are acting out a crime because it is so minor.People do not realize their small crimes affect the community they live in because everyone is doing it and they are just going with the flow of society.
Many people cannot talk to the senator, but you can corner the mayor and have him explain his reasoning to you. On the local level, people are very free to express themselves. Mr. Williams’ current firm does not handle the corrupted system in DeKalb country, but they are aware of the corruption. Mr. Williams feels like the mentality and civil culture that sustains a democracy has dissipated.

It is stated in Broken Windows Theory that if you deal with the small crimes then it will help deter the larger ones. Stop and frisk is supposed to help deter the smaller crimes, however, many believed that there was too much emphasis on Broken Windows and that 's what lead to the stop and frisk procedures getting out of hand. While the city has all but stopped doing stop and frisk, broken windows still remains. It is unclear if Bratton and de Brasio will budge on broken windows.

In chapter twelve a salesman tries to sell a bad tire to and Okie family and tries to take advantage of their vulnerable state. However the Okie family will not take it and instead risk going out on the road with the bad tire, eventually it stops leading to some assistance from by-passers. This actions that the Okie engaged in with the broken tire shows that even if in need for a tire that they will not get swindled by the wealthy because they are in need, then when the car stops they don’t panic but instead make a trailer and make things work by asking for a ride. Another example of the theme is in chapter 13 when Al asks Ma if she is scared of going to California, she answers him that she doesn’t think about it because she can’t do anything about what it will be like. This same thing happens in Chapter 16 when Al asks Tom what he thinks about moving forward.
They know they can do what they want, and then gain back their respect for simply nothing. They can beat up the greasers because society cares nothing for them, and would side with the socs instead. The cops also see good in the socs more than the greasers, they are threatened by the the money of the socs. They aren't threatened by what they see to be poor teens, that steel and smoke. In general everyone in society is threatened by their money, they feel helpless against their money.
What Nixon plan was first to have “His aids to avoid all contact with critical journals” (Lukas 32), and for certain reporters who didn’t bring up questions about Watergate “Rewarded a few friendly reporters with exclusive interviews or tips” (Lukas 32). This would’ve kept the reporters away from discussing Watergate. Still many believe the truth is being hold back from the public, so the press keeps pushing it down Nixon and anyone possibly took role in the event. A hatred was born between the messengers and the writer. Shown in Patrick J. Buchanan The Media Hated Nixon and Drove Him from Office from Alex Cruden “Watergate” states “The media and political establishments hated Nixon” (Buchanan 78).
