This era would become known as the golden age of the American middle class. During the 1980s, the political winds shifted. Ronald Reagan cut taxes, allowed more private campaign contributions, used republican control of the house and senate to deregulate, and inflated defense spending. He did later rescind some of these changes because he realized they were
The latest Healthy People 2020 data shows the rate up even more at 37.7% in 2013-2014 (HHS, Healthy People 2020, 2016). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicated the majority of the world’s population live in countries where more people die from being overweight than people die from being underweight (2010, p. 951). According to Healthy People 2020, America has experienced this dramatic increase in adult obesity because Americans do not eat a healthy diet and do not get enough physical activity (HHS, Healthy People 2020, 2016).

He also maintained a GDP average growth rate of 3.8 which could be considered as a good result, comparing to the precedent presidents after the Second World War only 3 of them performed better than him.

Some species naturally have small ranges and population sizes. This makes them even more vulnerable to extinction. The Lange’s metalmark butterfly only lives in the Antioch Dunes in the San Francisco Bay (Top 10 US Endangered Species). After the 1906 fires, the city was rebuilt using materials from the dunes, causing many species specific to the area to become extinct (Top 10 US Endangered Species). Lange’s metalmark butterfly is one of the most endangered species in the United States (Top 10 US Endangered Species).
During the mid-1970 's the Red Scare began to slowly move past us and home life settled; there was a new problem dawning, economic inequality. During the 70 's the income gap widened as lower/middle-class American 's income growth slowed down, while the high-class continued to see marginal gain. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the top 1% of earners have experienced a 200% annual income increase from 1980—2010. During his January 28 'th 2014 State of the Union address, President Obama claimed "America does not stand still - and neither will I, so wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that 's what I 'm going to do." Despite the promises, hope, and trust that is created when a President addresses the people, it’s always brought to an end by the realization of perpetuating
According to the study conducted by Dychtwald (1990), he stated that “One out of every nine individuals in United States of America is now age 65 or older”. In 1900, about 4 percent of the population, which are 3.1 million people were aged 65 years and older. And by 1990, the number of elderly had reached to 31.2 million which are about 12.6 percent of the population and this development is mostly expected to be continued until at least the year of 2040, where the elderly total quota of United States population could reach up to 22.6 percent (Clark &
Hardin strongly appeals to logos to show his readers that rich countries like the United States shouldn’t help poor countries because it would continue the growth rate of poor countries and will leave future generations with a poor quality of life. One way he does this is by using statistics. While discussing at the beginning the metaphor of lifeboats and explaining the gap between the population of rich countries compared to poor countries Hardin says, “On average poor countries undergo a population a 2.5 increase in population each year; rich countries about 0.8 percent” (par. 28). This is effective because it is makes the reader realize that poor countries are taking over population wise; therefore, are in need of more resources than we are. That means that if we want to help poor countries we have to share with them, but
“We control every other species except our own.” (The Fresh Quote). Overpopulation is a big issue in society today, an issue that isn’t talked about as much as it should be. Everyone should be informed on the impacts they have on the planet we live on. In order to make people more aware of overpopulation, everyone should be more aware of the resources they use, how fast they use them and the affects they will have on the future.

In Pathologies of Power: Health, Human Rights, and the New War on the Poor, Paul Farmer uses his experiences as a physician and anthropologist to deliver confirmation and analysis of poverty. A substantial part of the work comprises of reflections by Farmer on the way in which the current worldwide economic structures stimulate a genuine and systematic violence against the rights of the poor. While primarily focused on health, and profiling the impacts of Tuberculosis, AIDS and other diseases, his involvement in treating patients beaten by members of military dictatorships and those who experience malnourishment indicate profound social health problems. Farmer shows that social inequalities erode the ability of the poor and marginalized to
