Recently, Ohio passed a new law, stating that citizens who did not regularly vote for four years and were unresponsive to any kind of sent notice, would be removed from voting rolls; therefore, the name, “Use it or Lose it.” This is unconstitutional and should not only be revoked, but a new program should be enacted to address certain issues that were addressed under this “purging” law. This law needs to have a public policy solution because voting is a public and basic right towards every American citizen. By restricting this, indirectly, citizens are denied from their fundamental right. The government should take action to review and remove this piece of Ohio legislation as it goes against the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution gives citizens the
And this election is not fair enough because people in the National People’s Congress of the People’s Republic of China can decide who the next president is before voting. So voting is just a show. The supreme leader of North Korea is also not elected by people. Kim Jong-un was born to be the supreme leader because his great-grandfather was the first leader who leaded North Korea became independent. North Korea is just same as a family business.
(Elcompanies.com, 2018b) While cosmetic testing on animals was banned in certain countries, China passed a law on 30 June 2014 to eliminate the requirement for animal testing of cosmetics. (Ly, 2015) This law forced all brands who wants to enter the China market will need to go through this cruel procedure. In 2012, PETA, an an American animal rights organization based in Norfolk, Virginia discovered that Avon, Mary Kay, and Estee Lauder had resumed animal testing. These companies had been cruelty free for twenty years, but since China requires cosmetic testing on animals, the three companies were now pay for their products to be tested on animals.

First, how is it possible that the government cannot track a social security number that does not exist? With so many challenges for US citizens, it seems unfathomable that false identification cannot be easily detected. The other surprise for me is that there are several moments in the film when Vargas is in contact with law enforcement with questions about his status. He does not get the responses I would have expected and the police and INS do not pursue him. After “coming out” in 2011, he founded a non-profit organization called Define American that aims to break down biases about immigrants through
According to Dr. Engel’s lecture on the famed explorer and the editorial “Columbus Not Worth Honoring” by David Thundershield Queen, Columbus was not the commendable man we thought him to be. Columbus did not in fact discover America; Native Americans have thrived in the New World long before Columbus was even born. Columbus was also not looking for India. Yes, he was looking for spices, mainly pepper, but it was China he was bound for. He was very stubborn as well, refusing to accept he had not found China but a different land, and he died still believing he had reached China.
One clear example of the conflict of manipulation appears in George Orwell’s famous piece of literature, 1984. In the novel, although a few members of the society are rebellious to the Government’s controversial plans, many are unaware about their questionable rules. The government has complete control over everything in the society, and that is not even an exaggeration. One example of this type of manipulation appears numerous times in the beginning chapters of the book: “War is Peace, Freedom is slavery, Ignorance is strength.” (Orwell 4). This slogan was created by the government in the book, and although it is obvious that these statements are invalid in our modern world, the citizens would not know this because they are being manipulated constantly by their own authority.
These kinds of TV shows seemingly opposed the government 's law that even the Chinese versions of American-based TV shows are quite offensive in terms of moral or ethical issues. “If You Are The One”, based on America 's “The Bachelor”, in one episode, one of the female contestants was asked by the bachelor to ride on his bicycle to which she replied with sarcasm - “I would rather cry in the back of a BMW (a Western car brand).” The producers recklessly brought older contestants, and put a Communist Party school professor to be the third host to keep the show going despite these intentions giving a bad impression of the show. Despite the government 's negative view on Western culture, McLaughlin stated that many of China 's culture consumers oppose
He talks about how in the book Nineteen-Eighty Four they doesn’t have freedom also how in the present Obama doesn't like that the government spy on the citizen. A quote from the article, “president Obama says he’s not big brother...Obama and many others insist that the U.S. is not living under such a regime. The government is not listening to everyone's telephone calls, Obama said on Friday, nor is it using the information to spy on innocent Americans” (Greenblatt,2013). A second quote is, “Stanley Corngold, an emeritus professor of German and comparative literature at Princeton University. Kafka raises questions not only about governments collecting massive amounts of information "like a giant vacuum cleaner," Corngold says, but what they do with it”(Greenblatt,2013).
The former president continuously denied he was involved in the scandal, until the court ordered he handed over recordings that proved he attempted to redirect the fact-finding (“Richard”). All of this deceit only made Nixon viewed as dishonest and shady to the American people, making his impeachment seem almost predictable. But something that was not predicted was Richard Nixon’s
I was little when my dad told me about the Taiwan Strait Crisis of 1996, where China was threatening to bomb the living daylights out of Taiwan. Apparently, it’s wasn 't’ ok in China’s eye for the president of Taiwan to deliver a speech at Cornell University. My dad explained every detail of it and yet I left that conversation with a thought stuck in my head. Why would they do that?Why would they threaten this way? Look, I’ve heard the words “Taiwan is part of China”, “It’s not a country”, “You’re Chinese”, trust me I’ve heard all of them.
