Mr. O’Malley, a lifelong Democrat and onetime chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, seemed comfortable playing the insurgent as he took the stage. He urged Democrats to draw a sharp contrast with the discourse among the Republican presidential candidates. “Silence and complacency in the face of hate is not an honorable option,” he said, alluding to Donald J. Trump’s divisive remarks about immigration and women. “We must stand before the American people and show them we have a better way.” Mr. O’Malley pointed out that the New Hampshire debate, the only one to be held before that state’s primary, was set for a weekend in December, when many people will be distracted with Christmas shopping and family obligations. (“At home we would call that too cute by half,” he told reporters after his speech.)
Warren Buffett is also an active politician and he worked as the economic advisor of the 44th President of the United States Barack Obama. Buffett supported Obama’s presidential campaign in 2008 and helped him since he got over the maximum power of the country. Warren admitted that he grew up in a ‘republican family’ and that he became democrat thanks to his wife Susan. Buffett admitted that as time passed he disagreed many times with the President’s proposals such as the health care program and that he had to work on it so it wouldn’t fail. In 2011, one of the most arguable economic problems the country had to face was the implementation of a new tax plan named the ‘Buffett Rule’.
Most would say climate change is one of the most critical issues facing the world. Our current president, Barack Obama, has passed some of the best environmental regulations of any president. His decision to reject the Keystone XL pipeline secured his reputation as an environmentalist.The Keystone XL pipeline extension enables oil companies to expand development of Canada’s tar sands, increasing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. But it will be Obama’s successor, the next president, that determines whether we continue to move forward with environmentally friendly policies. For the sake of time, we will only address the five candidates that are still in the presidential
The documentary, “Fahrenheit 9/11” by Michael Moore criticises the Bush Government and highlights what on Moore’s views on government corruption, and misleading information after the September 9/11 attacks on the US. He does this through various visual devices including photographs, interviews and documents. My visual representation is of a mirror which reflects Moore’s message that The film starts off with Moore’s voiceover, “Was it all just a dream?”, accompanied with footage of the election taking place. In the following scenes, Moore presents shots of various news stations reporting of AL Gore’s election victory, which turns out to be incorrect and depicts their embarrassed retractions that George W Bush had actually won. Moore’s intent
Presidents become the spokesperson for bills like the Gun Show Background Check Act and promote them with persuasive speeches and events, urging Americans to exert pressure on law makers. After the defeat of the gun control bill, President Obama somberly stated, “All in all, this is a pretty shameful day for Washington…The American people are trying to figure out—how can something that has a 90 percent support not happen?” (McAuliff)
According to Aaron Blake’s article on The Washington Post, “Trump seems to have been torn between respect for Obama and a desire to accuse him…” The article states that back in the early 2000s, Trump has shown his respect many times towards the former U.S. president, but has also made wild claims about him. In January, 2008, Trump said, “I certainly think he is a very capable guy and a great speaker.” But it wasn’t until after President Trump was inaugurated, that he made even more outrageous accusations. I saw a tweet on President Trump’s twitter, and he claims that Obama wire tapped his phone, and said that it was something similar to the Nixon Watergate scandal. Throughout the years, the new U.S. president has shown his strange way of respect towards Obama, leaving many confused of what he thinks of
Vox Magazine states, “While the world rages on and problems like starvation, a massive refugee crisis, and homelessness remain unfixed, people in America — including an American presidential candidate — are arguing over a red beverage container.” Also, this debate has drawn focus away from the November 13th massacre in France. Instead of arguing over a cup, these celebrities should be trying to educate their audiences about worldwide issues. But at the end of the day, Starbucks probably did not intend this major response to its holiday cup. Instead, Starbucks intended that the cup be treated as a blank canvas, according to an article on Today. “Over the past few years, our customers have been showcasing their work on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest, and we even held a contest to support this creativity.
The modern anti-vaccination movement all started with one study. In 1998, Dr. Andrew Wakefield posted a study he had executed in a medical journal entitled, The Lancet. This study, claiming to have found legitimate links between vaccinations and autism, sparked a controversy over the safety of immunizations. Although his data was found to be fraudulent in later years, the fear had already been instilled in the minds of many (CNN). With celebrity and television personality Jenny McCarthy spearheading the movement, it has been able to gain publicity and momentum.
National Security has benefited the country by upgrading the budget to forty-three billion dollars to grant extra safety measures. Soon after 9/11, George W. Bush signed the Patriot Act to investigate terrorist activities by monitoring American phone and email conversations, bank records, and web searches. Also, the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) has added new baggage and passenger screenings to their protocol at airports. Many people believe that these programs ensure that the government could stop groups such as Al Qaeda in a rapid manner that can prevent further disasters. On the contrary, some people see the absence of confidentiality as a wedge of distrust between U.S. citizens and the White House.
The creation of Dolly shocked people, including the Federal Government of the United States of America, which created some laws to make human cloning experiments illegal. After a decade of discussion about the prons and cons of cloning technology, the United States, followed by other nations, decided to support and donate money for researches that turns around how cloning technologies can positively help the future of the human
