Even though the fence along the U.S./Mexico border is already being built, it should not continue being built because it is expensive, hurts the environment, and immigration rates have significantly dropped. With the wall comes its high costs like the cost of materials to build it or the money paid to the workers that are building it. When President Trump was doing the presidential campaign, he predicted the border was going to cost about twelve billion dollars, but that turned out to be untrue. Vanda Felbab-Brown herself writes, "... A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) internal report in February put the cost at $21.6 billion, but that may be a major underestimate.” Most of this is due to the size of the wall and all the fees that come along with building the wall on other territories. You would think that Trump would pay for it all himself but, that is simply not the case.
Since the 43 billion dollars is being wasted on non-draftees, money that could be used on infrastructure, unemployment subsidies, and economic development is now being spent frivolously on ordinary students and adults in America. Overall, the military draft would redirect money away from wasted financial burdens, while it could be used on the encouragement of employment in the general
The Last Meow Persuasive Essay Americans now are spending way too much money on their pets. In our society, people nowadays are going overboard on what they consider necessary for their animals. People are spending money in the thousands just for their pets to have a few more months of agony and pain. Some people even care more about their animals over their own family. Animals are great and make our lives better but when they are suffering and all we can do is extend their pain for a few months and pay thousands of dollars it just isn’t worth it.
Several factors contributed to British colonies changing their feelings towards a possible reconciliation with the British monarchy. The relationship between the American colonist and British monarchy had not been a stable one. After years of oppression from the British monarchy, the colonist finally realized they were better off without them. Following the end of the French and Indian war, England 's national debt had more than doubled. "Half of the money collected from hard-pressed British taxpayers went just to pay the interest on this massive debt, and no more revenue could be squeezed from them without risking domestic unrest (pg 92)."
It might cost the government more on behalf of taxpayer money. Americans pay taxes which money goes to soldiers for war. That money goes to soldiers benefits like food shelter and entertainment. Surgery if injured in the line of duty or injured while in the military. Transgender people should not be allowed to enlist in the army due to the medical conditions that are ongoing.
He was speaking for the victims of the war and how it can hurt both sides of the war and not just one. I think money is one of the main points in his speech. The quote “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death” (King) shows his view on the war and I agree with his view. I think the money should have been spent on things back home that supports our citizens and not on war. Another quote that I like is “Communism will never
According to Senator Charles E. Schumer, Upfront Magazine, 2016,”...force our government to extend precious resources to deport millions.”What Senator Schumer is saying here is that the government will be wasting money and resources to deport eleven million people. Resources that could help the undocumented residents have an education, create a home, and help start a new life with their loved ones. Of course, some might argue that we will waste more resources with them being here. But this argument is false. The key point is that it will cost to much to deport them.
Another quote such as this also supports the idea, “At a time when our country is trimming back social services for our own citizens, we can hardly afford to keep the door open every year to roughly one million newcomers from poor nations.” In other words, we are letting in too many people already and anymore will shoot down social services for citizens who need it. This is why, people are wrong who say opening ourselves to the world is the best solution to
First, 9/11 weakened our economy. We spent millions of dollars after this event not only on defense efforts, but also on war efforts in retaliation to those responsible. Our number one focus became keeping our country safe. Secondly, after 9/11, we made our airport security tighter. We lost a lot of trust in the safety
Today im going to explain why soldiers should get paid more than athletes.There a lot of reasons why should soldiers get paid more than athletes. I feel that men and women in the military should get way more money than an athlete players because the soldiers are fighting for our lives.They have bills and probably a family to take care of.The soldiers risk their lives everyday to protect our freedom and this country yet many of them are now homeless and need assistance from the government to support themselves. We pay our athletes more money than our own military force and I find this extremely sad. Our military serve and protect and watch friends and family die in front of them yet we still pay athletes for our entertainment more
And what was the end result due to job creation in the military system? Having the military as the main source of creating jobs can become very useless as most nations now a days don 't even go to war mainly because of National Peace Corporations, this causing their troops not being utilized. Robert B. Reich, a professor of public policy at the university of California, Berkeley, asserted that "Having a giant undercover military jobs program is an insane way to keep Americans employed." he again argued against the defence program saying that “a jobs program for building weapons that America doesn 't need is wasteful and a poor use of resources. The government should invest and create jobs in areas where the United States actually needs improvement, such as in education or infrastructure”.
If we were not going to war with them and leave their culture alone the government could have used the money to better itself for the future.The prosecution of the war cost the United States government 105 million dollars, which values of roughly 1.5 billion dollars in 2014. They wasted an enormous amount of money to try to eradicate their culture. One example of this would be”The school was to completely transform people I mean inside-out language.” This sentence has a negative meaning by hearing it but by understanding it, it something that would help in the future. Although they were taught to leave their Indian customs behind, they could not actually throw it all away, it would remain with them. When they would have the chance to come home or create new families, they would teach them English and their Indian Culture.
Obama has not been given the same curioutisy that was extended to GW Bush in reference to not critizing the sitting president in time of war. One of the times I wished there had been more controvery is in the ealry 2000’s. During this time, the democrats for the most part were very much supportive of Bush’s and his attack first agenda. During this time if there had been more opposition to Bush we might not have lost so many rights to the Patriot Act, or lost so many American lives to war and so many millions of people in the Middle East. To close this ‘controversy’ is just another example of the checks and balances that are and should be used to keep our government from going too far in any direction that will be harmful to the nation.
