Some believe that the main reason the Texas Legislature to change would be that they would be able to meet annually and get more bills passed and be able to cover more throughout the time period. Texas is faced with multiple issues as a whole regarding immigration, unemployment and water conservation. With loaded bills and legislation like this an annual legislative session would be more beneficial to the State as a whole. Some think that this would allow the legislature to attend their business in a timely manner and not be rushed by the deadline of 140 days. It would allow the legislature to gel more readily and synergize on the legislation that is needed to be passed.
Greater possibility of class suspensions - More suspensions might incur due to bad weather reports on the term break months. In my opinion, more study and research must be done before entering to the new academic calendar and yet the issue is still debatable on some schools. As said by Chairperson of CHED (Commission on Higher Education), Patricia Licuanan (March, 2014), it is not advisable to shift the calendar year with no prior researches. She also emphasized that the June start of classes is the most feasible. In addition, FEU Diliman might have problems on the shifting with the reasons stated below: ·FeuDiliman has a trimestral system.
Despite this, the U.S. Mint keeps churning out a billion pennies a month.” The complete waste of time and money spent producing these pennies just to be forgotten in the couch cushions is astounding. If every penny is 1.8 cents to produce than the government is giving away 800 million USD every single year. The same article says, “...10 million new useless items punched out by government workers who could be more usefully employed tracking counterfeiters.” In other words, the government isn’t only wasting money on penny production but, also a working staff. U.S. currency could be more protected if it wasn’t for the pesky penny. To sum up, if people took the time to research how the penny was affecting us as a nation we could be closer to the
What president should be put on a dollar bill if their entirety of their presidency was an absolute mess just left for the next president to handle. He the native people of north america off their land. He didn 't listen to the country 's opinion. He got rid of the bank which could have helped the country flourish and thrive. Why should he be remembered as a great president if all he did was set a precedent for future presidents to focus on the people instead of the country.
Today nobody ever realizes how powerful an executive order is. So I’ll help you understand how powerful one can be. Today there are too many executive orders that it is hard to realize how powerful an executive order is, but there are some that stand out. Like executive order 9066, when president Roosevelt stated all Japanese people may be excluded from military areas.This shows that one document can take away a citizen's rights, and gives the president too much power. When the U.S. goes through times of emergency, like war, the president is given special powers to run the country.
Does one’s vote for U.S. President really count? In a U.S. Presidential Election, the American people vote for their preferred candidate; however, votes from a select group of people known as electors are the only ones that count in the election. George Orwell’s 1984 displays the dangers of giving a select group of people too much power, as it deprives the people of their voice in governmental matters. 1984 reflects how the people do not have an actual say in who becomes their leader. The Electoral College stands in the way of a true democracy in the United States; therefore, the United States needs to abolish it in order for the government to hear the voices of the American people.
Also many homeless people have a mental illness or disability making them unable to have a job. Even those with a job are unable to make a sustainable living off it. Wages are so low that one must work at least two jobs but with housing prices being so high, it makes find a place to live extremely hard. Washington and California have some of the highest minimum wage standards but even that is not a livable wage. We as a society have simplified a solution because many of us do not understand the complex issues that these circumstances
Even though the act lowered the amount to $4 per month, many of the Chinese miners were only making approximately $6 a month. If they failed to pay the monthly tax, the Chinese workers were forced to give up their property and personal possessions (Natasha Rivero, 2010). The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 was the first law that omitted a race. It was a law that was set up for a long time because of such a variety of migrants landing in the United States and on the off-chance that they so happened to leave the
They were scared of tyranny, especially pertaining to the fact that under the new Constitution, the national government, or Congress, would be able to make decisions without even asking for the states’ permission. (Anti-Federalist 1: Brutus). Even though the Constitution called for checks and balances, Anti-Federalist Patrick Henry, was convinced that the president would be the one making all the decisions, not unlike a king. (Bianco and Canon, 44). The national supremacy clause in the Constitution even stated that national law supersedes any state law when there is conflict.
For hundreds of years government has been a very important topic, everyone has different opinions and believes there should be different amounts of government. People do need a government but it can’t be too powerful, civilians need to be able to voice their opinions and be heard. But this has not happened a lot in the past, only been in the past 2 or 3 hundred years since America was born and we still struggle with it today. Civilians had to fight for most of the rights we have today and to do that there was a lot of civil disobedience. Civilians should be aloud to be civilly disobedient when laws are unjust because they aren’t being violent, you have to stand up for what you believe so people can’t take it away and so that government doesn't
