If you do some simple math the only states that needed to approve it were the ones who didn’t offer resistance to the Articles and wanted a new government. Another silly thing all the founding fathers missed in the Articles is that the continental congress couldn’t enforce any laws. Which in so many words meant that congress could make all the laws they wanted but none of the states had to follow it due to the state government having much more power than the federal government. All the flaws in the Articles in confederation had made many things happen such as Shay’s rebellion and of course the adaptation of our new government which took ten months for the first nine states to ratify the rest of course came one by
Are people this clueless about the first people in America?” I am not one of these other brown-skinned peoples living in New Mexico. I am not a part of the majority-minority of this state. Rather, my culture, my relatives, my people are the minority of the country. I am Navajo. Since I was old enough to comprehend words and sentences, I have known that I am Navajo.
Ancient Celtic druidism is believed to begin around 2200 B.C. This is a rough estimate since the druids were forbidden to write anything down and did not have a divine text such as the bible. Instead the druids used oral tradition to pass down their traditions, beliefs and methods to future generations. Since the druids themselves were forbidden to have a written text the religion is secondhand knowledge from the Roman, Greeks and Christians. This is also not the most accurate information since it may not all be factual.
Turner hesitates to mention anyone in his essay who is not male or Germanic or at least European, leaving out huge demographics of people who heavily influenced the West. The lack of recognition for the people who actually built the country, with or without choice, is detrimental to history and representation later on in America. The Europeans that came to America had very oppressive laws of property which they carried over with them. The Natives who had been living there for years had a very different concept of property; many believed that the land was gifted to everyone and no one person could own any part of that land. However, the Europeans refused this idea and saw this as an opportunity to take whatever they wanted.
Even though, we had such a crazy election this year, he would probably hold no premise in today’s society simply because the government has changed so much, and his rules and much other stuff that he would probably like to see would be completely different. As far what would be deemed unacceptable, I don’t really know what would be considered acceptable and unacceptable from that time periods standpoint, the way taxes worked would probably be unacceptable, but that’s about it. Though, I believe I would save the documents he’s ever penned and the records of his achievements because this would be about the pinnacle of the United States considering they are just starting to become a nation. What he was able to do was amazing and back then I don’t think anybody else could have done it during the time. He was an exemplary commander and even better general.
The Great Depression was a devastating period in United States History, the economy collapsed, and a staggering 25% of the population was unemployed. During this time, there were large wage disparity gaps that were very prevalent, there was no middle class, you were either wealthy or you were poor. It was hard for family life to continue, parents had to take up two and three jobs to make sure their kids were staying safe, and well. Most of these jobs were odd-jobs, and were temporary with no sense of security. It was a struggle to find work, and no job was too demeaning for you to do, because you may not find work again.
In the essay “Idiot Nation”, Moore conveys the idea of how in today’s generation education diminishes the drive for learning because of budget cuts, creating a lack of student passion towards the subjects. His example of America’s lack of desire for improving their educational backround can be seen in this statistics, “99 hours a year an average American adult spends reading a book – compared with 1,460 hours watching television” (Moore 123). According to Moore, all Americans create themselves in being “ignorant” and “stupid” when it comes to basic knowledge. However, throughout Moore’s essay the reader may question the validity of what he says because of his sarcastic and domineering tone towards the “stupidity” of all Americans. The U.S does not prioritize education, and Moore provides legitimate facts that support the underfunded school systems.
However, just as many are saying no because it goes against the teaching of their God/religion, and that the lgbtqa+ community already has enough rights. Recently, laws have been passed such as marriage equality, and lgbtqa+ being able to adopt in all 50 states. Nonetheless, lgbtqa+ still don 't have protection against employment discrimination, lgbtqa+ can 't donate blood, lgbtqa+ conversion therapy is still practiced, and the result of all of this discrimination is that some lgbtqa+ have committed suicide; therefore, the lgbtqa+ community still doesn 't have all of the rights they deserve. Many Lgbtqa+ face employment discrimination. There’s still no federal law
In the 1950’s there was a huge impediment for blacks to get jobs. The small amount of jobs blacks were able to get were low-wages jobs, like garbage men, which Troy is. For this type of job people did not need any skills, nonetheless education, which blacks were deprived from. There were limited amounts of schools for blacks, nonetheless colleges. In addition, blacks were not able to get loans or even mortgages for houses in black neighborhoods because the bank prohibited it.
The Blacks are being taxed, yet they have no representation in government. The same chart also shows that only one of the sixteen northern states allowed Blacks the right to serve on juries (Doc A). This is a simple right given to all Americans that Blacks do not get to have. Juries are supposed to be a fair representation of the population, yet a whole fourteen percent of the population cannot serve on them. Blacks in the North had very little political freedom because they were not guaranteed the right to vote and could not serve on
With the price for oil continuously growing the price for food, fuel and transportation went up drastically. (Doc C) This limited the spending of the average American family and made the people turn to it’s government for help. Nixon now had to come up with plans to help with this crisis. He had it where gas stations “close down their pumps between 9 P.M. Saturday night and midnight Sunday every weekend, beginning December 1.”(Doc H) This was one of three plans made to help with the energy crisis, limiting how much the American family could use the car. The final step needed to help end this shortage was to “establish of a maximum speed limit for automobiles of 50 miles per hour nationwide as soon as our emergency energy legislation passes the Congress.” Nixon wanted to limit the overuse of gas by putting limits on how fast someone could drive.
Another reason for Jamestown 's struggle was their choice in the people they believed would help the colony. The colony of Jamestown was home to about one hundred people known as gentlemen. These were wealthy men that did not work or help the colony in any sort of way. These people made up around half of the population causing not much to be done considering the amount of people brought to the colony originialy. Also women were not brought for the first twelve years of the colony.
In Need of Help Americans are often not aware of what is going on outside of the United States; however, just as third-world countries suffer from a lack of necessities, so does our own nation. What has recently been brought to the author 's attention that she is now putting on the table – what is occurring in the Navajo Nation? The beautiful and vast Navajo Nation “extends into the states of Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico, covering over 27,000 square miles” (Navajo Nation 's DIT). F1. Figure 1 With such a large area, it is almost tough to believe that it has “only thirteen grocery stores and three hospitals – all which are miles apart” (@lilnativeboy).
Furthermore, an average American Indian household living in Pine Ridge will take home about half the U.S. median, and this income is likely welfare allowing them to survive. Paths out of poverty are simply not present on Pine Ridge: job opportunities are scarce, and the unemployment rate is estimated to stand at 80%. Despite the extreme poverty of Pine Ridge, the federal government has been loath to support it for decades, and even that minimal help has been threatened by the current political climate of budget
Raising the minimum wage has been one of the biggest debates during the 21st century. One side of the spectrum argues that raising it will make it so they have a living wage, while the other argues that raising it will hurt the economy. Whichever the case is, people are clearly divided on this issue. Before Oregon passed the 15 dollar minimum wage law, people wrote arguments to try to either prevent or pass this law. The article, “How a $15 minimum wage would affect a real business: Guest opinion” by Lee Spector argues that raising the minimum wage would hurt small businesses like the one he earns.
