Johnson states, “ I happen to be a great believer in this wave, but there is no avoiding the reality that the shift from pro to am comes at some cost”(470). He expresses that 1.0 websites have their share of professionalism but 2.0 websites offer way more. Johnson goes on to say, “ This is a perfectly legitimate debate to have,

Prohibition was a disaster across America and the more reforment from the government just made things worse.

The Tet offensive, which took place on the 31st of January 1968, had huge significance on the political landscape of America, and public opinion on the war in Vietnam. After the Tet offensive, public support for the war plummeted, and with ever increasing support in the anti-war movement and protests, the war in Vietnam was no longer justifiable to the American public. As a result of this president Johnson stepped down from running for re-election, leaving an anti-war democrat running against an anti-war republican. This meant that Nixon was elected, which arguably ended the Vietnam War, due to his change in tactics. This knock on effect started with the Tet offensive, makes Tet one of the most significant events in the whole conflict.

Reading Commentary My first source is an article from the Daily Mirror dated from the 31/08/15. The Mirror is a well known newspaper so I considered it to be a reliable source, however it is very biased. The writer uses large amounts of ‘emotive language’ and only comment on one point of view as they include no counter arguments due to the writers only regarding one side of the argument in attempt to persuade the reader to agree with their ideas prevent the reader from making their own. This source is extremely relevant to my speech and has taught me about the case of Richard Glossip. It is very informative on the case regarding Richard Glossip, who is currently on death row, therefore making it a valuable source.

Robber Barons were like robin hoods, but reversed. Instead of stealing from the rich to give to the poor, they would steal from the poor by giving the rich a discount on a product, then making that same product up for a poorer person (Whitehead, 2016). The Civil War has just ended. America is thrown into a time of industrialism that it wasn’t properly prepared for. Before all of the industrialism was put into the equation, we were a mess and with the industrialism, we were a disaster, just waiting to explode.
Module 7 Discussion The Great Depression of the 1930’s created the worst economic / financial crisis the country had to face. Up until FDR won the election in 1932 and throughout his presidency, FDR’s primary focus was on handling and responding to the consequences that the depression had caused. He did this by implementing policies, legislation, reform and laws in order to help the American people and restore confidence in the financial markets. For this reason, I believe it is why President Roosevelt did not want any involvement in Upton Sinclair‘s campaign. From what I read in the textbook, additional sources and to my understanding, FDR and Upton Sinclair were both democrats and had different political views / strategies for wanting to help the nation.
At this time, there must have been some people in the government who were terrified that what happened in 1923 would occur again sending Germany spiraling down into another time of massive inflation and great poverty. At this time, many people believe that this is the end of democracy in Germany because the chancellors of Germany would rule by decree rather than the democratically elected. So there were people in the
They, as conservatives, feel the extreme change in society during JFK’s presidency created problems. The authors feel Kennedy ruined America’s reputation, caused citizens to rebel, and somehow disrupted family life. This is an unfair interpretation. As, multiple times earlier in their accounts, Schweikart and Allen have shown obvious bias towards leaders who promoted change, such as FDR. Yes, the authors feel he had no equal, at least in his time period, they feel this way mainly because of his differences from JFK.
