“Time to Assert” contains several opinion based facts within the argument when describing how to deal with crime. Within “Time to Assert,” it comments, “A case like Michael Fay’s is important because it provides a chance to challenge an inhumane practice that ought not to exist anywhere” (Time to Assert 179). This quote from the editorial illustrates no true factual evidence and supports more of a biased argument that is heavily based on the editors opinions. The editorial implies no evidence that effectively helps with supporting the argument. According to “Time to Assert,” it explains, “The Fay case provides a legitimate opening for American citizens and companies to bring political and economic pressure to bear in the propagation of freedom and basic rights” (Time to Assert 180).
Analysis This case resulted in an explicit rejection of economic substantive due process. The Court overruled the holding in Adkins and changed the way the Court viewed state regulatory powers. The Court replaced substantive due process with a rational basis test that assumes the constitutionality of economic legislation and assigns responsibility to the law’s challengers to show there is not rational basis between the law and a legitimate government function. I disagree with the majority that the that this Washington state minimum wage requirement passes beyond the broad protective powers of the state. The decision in Adkins should have served as binding precedent and the Court should have held the law to be unconstitutional as well.
In reaction to being blackmailed, Judge Irwin opposes the blackmail through the technique of ethos, an argument based on morals (Heinrichs 40). Specifically, after Jack arrives at Irwin’s house with incriminating evidence, Irwin explains, “. . .politics is always a matter of choices” (Warren 479), and later states, “To blackmail me” (Warren 483). The ironic paradox that there are choices in politics, yet at the same time Irwin does not have a choice when blackmailed, shows the unfairness of extortion, and demonstrates the fallacy, argumentum ad baculum: a threat that does not offer the audience options (Heinrichs 178).
Kennedy told the American people “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” He said this during a time of great tension and conflict. Today, millions of Americans are facing the same rhetoric and fear that they did during Kennedy’s administration. Only this time, the fear isn't of nuclear destruction, but rather issues that are minuscule. President Obama has done an unprecedented job in reviving the concept of the American Dream, but our expectations and our willingness to achieve the dream has declined. We are not providing any service in return for the services that our government provides, and many of us are fighting the benefits we are receiving.
Patrick Henry also uses logos to state that our past efforts to make peace have not worked. “Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years...nothing” (Henry 104). His statement made people come to their senses and realize that fighting is the only other option. Therefore, logos influenced them the most because it forced them to see that they are the enemies and fighting back was the best
But one of the important issues discussed in hot debates is the Gay marriage that has recently been permitted in the States. This was a real change in the whole country; many people welcomed the idea because they believe in total freedom of the human being and citizens’ liberties. But other groups mostly coming from religious backgrounds stood against what has been restructured in the amendment concerning this point. The debate will never come to an end simply because proponents and opponents will see it from different angles and no one will decide who is right and who is
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”, said Franklin Delanor Roosevelt when addressing the audience of his first Inaugural Address. These words have proved true throughout history and throughout each and every one of our lives. Very rarely do we fail because we tried and did not succeed-more likely, however, is the scenario that we were so afraid of failing that we never bothered to try in the first place. Whether it be performing in front of a large crowd, admitting you care about someone, or trying something for the first time, all of us have been in a situation where we are afraid of failure or rejection, but what sets us apart is how we react in each of those
Prayer is not one of our remedies; it depends on what one is praying for. We consider prayer as nothing more than a fervent wish; consequently the merit and worth of a prayer depend upon what the fervent wish is.’” I read out loud in front of all our employees, “‘The Messenger’ is a radical monthly magazine, which campaign against lynching, oppose U.S. participation in World War I, urge African Americans to resist being drafted and to fight for an integrated society. Their founders Chandler Owen and Philip Randolph will lead the magazine to success.” Everybody applauded for Chandler and me. It was an awesome feeling to know that your team keeps your back and to see that the effort you put in something is worth
The families and the member may feel distant or depressed from the lack of communication. Our veterans have gone through more than we could imagine, they have fought battles without even firing a single bullet. For many the mentality that they will never go home or even see their loved ones again can prove to be overwhelming, and unfortunately there are things that many members have done and will have to live with their decision for the rest of their lives. These young men and women face these challenges everyday and always strive to overcome any and all obstacles in their path. We should honor our veterans because they have fought for our right to freedom.
There are many first hand accounts from the Holocaust to prove against the denial of the Holocaust and many have been tattooed with their numbers. Luckily, many countries are banning Holocaust denial “It was approved late Wednesday by the chamber of deputies, the lower assembly with 237 votes in favor, 5 against, and 102 absences.” (Armellini) This evidence shows that some people truly believe that Jewish communities only want more followers. If people want to believe something that is okay as long as they do not hurt someone else 's feelings because you want to treat others the way you want to be treated. Finally, even though people think the Holocaust never happened doesn’t we should believe it never happened either. We shouldn’t deny the
