In his news conference, John F. Kennedy utilizes juxtaposition and parallelism to support his idea that with the decline of huge companies, the price of things is going to start to increase significantly for Americans. The first rhetorical strategy Kennedy uses in his news conference is juxtaposition to show that with the decline in workers and the decline in profit will create an increase in prices around the country. This is shown when he says "when we are devoting our energies to economic recovery and stability, when we are asking Reservists to leave their homes and families for months on end, and servicemen to risk their lives- and four were killed in the last two days in Viet Nam- and asking union members to hold down their wage requests,
Abbi Pitts Dr. Emily Hess HIST 359 September 17, 2014 Reagan Revolution During the 1970s scandalous events like Watergate, the Iranian hostage crisis and defeat in South Vietnam and a drastic decline in American industry caused a tremendous loss of confidence amongst the American people. The nation seemed to be troubled by its loss of power and fall from grace on the world stage. It wasn’t until 1980 with the inauguration of President Ronald Reagan that the American Spirit was lifted. During his presidency the United States saw great growth in Industry, defense, also great tax cuts and cuts in the federal budget and government funded programs. With the election of Reagan great changes were brought about and America was able to move past the misfortune that struck the 1970s.
He aims at politicians and other leaders to make the audience aware of all the corruptness in office. Using logos, such as statistical evidence and facts, to substantiate his arguments, Moore engages his readers in his story.

Moore begins this essay by presenting a question to arouse the interest of his audience. He wants to raise awareness of the little things that impact the American lifestyle so much, such as sports and celebrities.
In the speech given by President John F. Kennedy in 1962, approximately a decade in difference from the rise of the pink flamingo, he discusses the cause and effect of price inflation on an economically damaged country. The United States Steel corporation set the wave for Americans when deciding to increase the prices of their steel ¨by some 6 dollars a ton¨ (Kennedy). Kennedy characterizes this sudden act as ¨unjustifiable and irresponsible¨ in regards to the impoverished and middle class that occupy the country (Kennedy). He suggests that if other companies in the industry make the choice to inflate the prices of their products, it could “seriously handicap our efforts to prevent an inflationary spiral from eating up the pensions of our older citizens, and our new gains in purchasing power” (Kennedy). If companies choose to imitate the American Steel Corporation, it would drastically set back the progress already made to repair the adverse economic system.
The first fireside chat is a huge step for FDR and the government to try and help the American people and give them some hope in trying to get through the terrible time. The first fireside chat, FDR talks about banking and what the bank does with your money. The banking problem during the great depression FDR explains it well saying "Because of undermined confidence on the part of the public, there was a general rush by a large portion of our population to turn bank deposits into currency or gold—a rush so great that the soundest banks couldn’t get enough currency to meet the demand." FDR addresses the people telling them that a law he will put into affect which gave authority to develop a program of rehabilitation of banking facilities to try and help the American
8) 2013 should be the darkest year for American Apparel till date. Net loss has reached an all-time high with 106 million USD in 2013, which is a 400% increase compared to only 37 million USD in 2012.

(Hart) What he envisioned was not playing out like he wanted. With more available floor space, McCollough intended to remodel 140 stores, but was forced to decrease to 20 to 25 stores instead. The time and effort it would have taken to renovate 140 stores would cost the company $1 million dollar per store and this was not a price the company was able to pay. Unlike in the 90s, by 2003, the company was not profiting and the sales reduced so to save money, Circuit City set out to lay off 3,900 commissioned workers, which accounted for 60% of the company’s sales associates. (Hart) These employees would be rehired, but paid on hourly wages.
In 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt became the president of the United State after President Herbert Hoover. The Great Depression was also at its height because President Hoover believed that the crash was just the temporary recession that people must pass through, and he refused to drag the federal government in stabilizing prices, controlling business and fixing the currency. Many experts, including Hoover, thought that there was no need for federal government intervention. ("Herbert Hoover on) As a result, when the time came for Roosevelt’s Presidency, the public had already been suffering for a long time. Half of the banks had closed their doors, more than twenty percent of the US population was unemployed, and the economy was lacking regulation.
Like Franklin Roosevelt won the elections in 1932 as Reagan won in 1980, when much of the American population felt discontent over America Economy, society and politics. For 50 years before American believed that their Government could and should be expected to solve their country’s pressing social and economic problems. For more than thirty years after Reagan’s era, Most American believe that free market is the solution to their country economic troubles. In the years that followed Second World War, Reagan drifted from away from Franklyn Roosevelt democratic ways and his liberal Ideologies. Reagan came to oppose was the high tax rate Roosevelt and the democrat imposed upon the rich.
He wanted much more freedom to decide about the destiny of the educational publishing business which was intertwined with William Heinemann’s.
