On one of the most devastating days in economic history, the stock market crashed with the value of the dollar being useless. Many families were left without any warning, losing any of their savings placed in stocks.

In the case of Katrina in Louisiana, even though the FEMA was established they did not follow any plan to rescue the victims. People were trapped for many days without food and shelter, if only plans were implemented, lives would have been saved. The states did their entire job as they send so many letters to federal for help, but it was a federal responsibility to do the next step. Maybe because of miscommunication or misunderstanding planning were going really slow and people were blaming the government for the poor management and the states were blaming government and government were blaming states.

Just imagine ... someone who has been proficient in the field of computer science since his childhood, but couldn’t afford to go to college. Just imagine if, since he couldn’t afford college, he couldn’t get a good paying job and is now succumbed to the struggles of surviving on minimum wage. Just imagine the grief you would have felt in this situation, knowing that you’ve let down not only your family but also yourself. Now, while this problem, of minimum wage, may not be applicable to many of you, it is a common issue for many Americans today and is just one of the many issues, such as gay marriage, abortion, and national security, that the Republican party is fighting to solve. The issue surrounding minimum wage is causing some very skilled

Unfortunately, the age of typographical culture has slowly transitioned into show business and entertainment. Media has had a significant impact on American culture over the course of history. It began when the general population gained knowledge of public figures through hearing speeches. When the printing press was picking up, it had a large influence on the ways politicians could voice themselves.

The final area I researched dealt with the effects on President Hoover’s presidency. During his presidency there was strong opinion he was to blame for the horrible economy because he did little to nothing to help improve people situation. As a result people started to refer to items using his name snidely. An example were Hooverville’s where the homeless population lived in communities of tin structures and had no access to heat, water, or the newly introduced electricity. A few other examples included Hoover blankets, newspapers that were used as blanket, and Hoover flags, an empty pocket turned inside out.
Many people debate on subjects that never get resolved. Debates, such as the economy never get fixed. But debates are just one of the reasons the U.S. is not a democracy. All in all, the voting statistics, gun debates, and police brutality are some of the main reason why the US isn’t a democracy. Voting is a good thing for our government.
Many solider who fought in the war are now suffering from long-term disabilities, and there is not enough Medicaid to cover them. Our nation is lacking professional and trained caregivers who can provide care for elderly who are living with multiple conditions.

Medicaid has several advantage for younger adults but it cheats older people. Life course will increase in the future and the government will cut the budgets and programs.
