“Nobody cares how tough your upbringing was. Nobody cares if you suffered some discrimination. And moreover, you have to remember that whatever you 've gone through, it pales in comparison to the hardships previous generations endured - and they overcame them.” (Obama 6) In the speech Obama had presented at the graduation class of 2013 at Morehouse College, he wants them to remember their struggles and be able to overcome them to do what is right. Obama uses a lot of rhetorical appeal such as pathos, such as the fact that he did not have a father figure in his life, yet he reached the top position in the country after years of hard work and support from his single mother, and grandparents. The second most effective rhetorical appeal is ethos,

It is a fiction novel about a thirty year old man who has been battling to overcome an intellectual deficit all of his life and has an opportunity to become more intelligent than he ever had imagined through an experimental operation. He takes the opportunity and in a few weeks he becomes a genius for a short time before his itelligence receded as fast as it increased.

After a particularly exhausting string of 12-hour days at a plastics factory, I remember being shocked at how small my check seemed" Braaksma (2005).

The theme the past can affect the present is represented through Vladek not hiring anyone to do work for him, Vladek always making Art finish his food, and Vladek's glass eye. An example of how the past affects the present is when Mala called Art in the middle of the night to help Vladek fix something on the roof. Vladek was on the roof by himself because he didn't want to hire someone to fix the problem and he thought he could do it himself. Mala was getting worried that he would fall or get hurt. “I’m telling you I don't know what to do with your father, he just climbed onto the roof!” (CITATION) Vladek does not trust anyone else to do his work.
Gatsby always wanted to be rich and does become rich, but we learn that he did not become rich from his own hard work. To try to earn his wealth Gatsby went to “the small Lutheran college of St. Olaf’s in southern Minnesota. He stayed there two weeks, dismayed at its ferocious indifference to the drums of his destiny, to destiny itself, and despising the janitor’s work with which he was to pay his way” (99). Gatsby, as we learn, had every chance to earn a degree at St. Olaf’s college but choose to leave because he had to be a janitor. Gatsby felt the school did not recognize the dream he had of himself because they were indifferent to his destiny.
“A diametrically opposed objection is that Franklin was no ideal, because he cut such a non-heroic figure—a printer, not a planter, no glorious military exploits to his credit, even his famous bifocals bespeaking more a shopkeeper-craftsman than a national helmsman. Yet perhaps for that very reason, he has been taken as a model by a society of commoners, aspiring to make their way, as Franklin had done.” Franklin, for obvious reasons, has therefore been a model in the way of how to live life for several years. His efficient way of living life leaves little room for error; so naturally, it is a tremendously difficult life to live. Franklin manages, even making unintended influential progress. “Franklin achieved fame and further financial success with ‘Poor Richard’s Almanack,’ which he published every year from 1733 to 1758.
When you get to America some people already think of you as less so it is difficult to obtain a good job or even just natural adaption. It can be hard to flee your country and have to learn a whole new culture as seen by how upset Baba gets in the convenience store. “Almost two years we've bought his damn fruit and put money in his pocket and the son of a dog wants to see my license!” (127). Babe and Amir are used to walking into a store with a stick and the owner carves indentation into the stick to indicate how much Baba owed him. “ He’d carve notches on our stick with his knife.
The journey to moving west they form self-government because they did not have any government. They had created their laws and the new government able to successfully united these families. They understand that they need to show the empathy for other people and the families learn to share food with each and they learn to help each other. The rules these people create is “the families learned what rights must be observed—the right of privacy in the tent; the right to keep the past black hidden in the heart; the right to talk and to listen; the right to refuse help or to accept...”(p.194). Steinbeck demonstrates that when people were receiving these rights, they are enjoying it because they realize they have some sorts of rights also each family member possessed the rights to privacy, rights to talk, and the rights to accept or refuse things.
It was quickly turned down due to financial issues. There was no way to pay for his plan then so why bring it back? Since 2012, every year America has added 2.39 billion dollars to the dept. The question over if this is feasible or not is fairly obvious. Do not get me wrong, the idea of having a free college to help those in need is illuminating.
This just shows what kind of a business McDonald’s is. They even asked for the publics view on the events as if that would save them. McDonald’s also said that they can't commit as much as the other McDonald businesses in America and Canada has. McDonald’s South Africa eventually agreed to become a free range business but only in ten years time. In my opinion as well as Yolanda Guse, a local reporter, think that McDonald’s is only delaying their move to stop using battery cages, and this is just to make more money as they don't have to care for the chickens as much as they would need to if they were free range chickens.
