This helps her persuasion because her argument can be easily followed by the reader. Reichel starts off with a simple statistic that draws attention because vaccines have been thought to be accessible to all, so the fact that the numbers are so high for illnesses is appalling. This immediately hooks the reader. Following the introduction, Reichl explains the reasons why the number are so high, and smoothly transitions into exactly, “Why should we be concerned”(5). After addressing this, it creates a sense of duty and a need for closure.
Abby Borden, killed first, was struck with an axe or hatchet-like object 19 times, and Andrew Borden was struck 10 or 11 times. The first blow would have been enough to kill both victims. The main suspect was Andrew 's youngest daughter Lizzie. During questioning Lizzie gave confusing or contradicting answers as to her alibi. However, she had been given doses of morphine to help calm her nerves after the murders of her father and his wife.
Have any children, nieces, or nephews? Imagine if one of them were in the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary Shooting. Horrifying incidents, happen when people defend the “right” of being able to own a gun. How about the Las Vegas Shooting, which killed fifty-nine, and injured 527 people. What about the Texas Church Shooting, where the shooter, was Devin Patrick Kelly, a former Air Force member.
I read on Tuesday night on Facebook how disappointed they were in the Senate 's vote to proceed on the new healthcare bill and how they would inform 38 million members how their Senators voted so they could hold them accountable. AARP strongly opposes ANY bill that raises healthcare costs and lowers coverage. AARP urged the Senate to focus on bipartisan solutions that will lower the cost and improve care for the American people. They also gave out a number so their members could call their Senators and complain. There were a ton of comments on their page about
“Campaign finance laws were enacted. Ford's Rockefeller Commission, which conducted a limited review of domestic CIA operations, was overtaken by the much more aggressive Church Committee and other post-Watergate Congressional investigation”(Watergate). All the reforms were good for the country but there is still a sense of lack of faith or no faith in the government. (PBS). One positive about the Watergate scandal is that the government showed that even when a president does the impossible like a Saturday Night Massacre when he fired everyone that was important to the trial, that he is still going to get caught.
The NRA played a leading role in the defeat of the Gun Show Background Check Bill. Their sheer size alone, consisting of four million members and lobbyists, became a force to be reckoned with. Being that their members are highly passionate about their group, unfortunately it is often less threatening for a senator to side with the NRA than their views than risk their career. The NRA threatened that they would retaliate against supporters of the bill and “called the expanded background checks a first step toward a national gun registry and government confiscation of firearms” (Barrett, Cohen) (Sidlow, Henschen)
Dockterman is very effective in her argument. She uses a very generous amount of Ethos as well as logos to construct her argument while keeping underlying themes of pathos mixed in. Throughout her essay her use of diction and syntax is used at a level that makes it easy for all readers to understand what she is talking about. In the first sentence of the essay she immediately begins to establish her credibility by using a statistic that will be the basis of her argument. She then goes on to use another statistic that will confirm the first one that she had used in the opening sentence to bring together her theme and topic of the essay.
To further reiterate the racial divide it may cause, according to bozemandailychronicle, Trump’s remarks on his version of “law and order” came at a time when racial tensions were at an all- time high. It was during the Charleston, NC police shooting of an unarmed black man. This caused Hillary Clinton to congregate with the Mothers of the movement. They are a group consisting of African American women whose sons were shot down by policemen. This organization of women along with Clinton rallied for the release of their videos (Bill Barrow).
The Kent State shootings—also known as the May 4th Massacre—occurred at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. The incident involved the shooting of unarmed college students by the Ohio National Guard on Monday, May 4th, 1970. The guardsmen fired sixty-seven rounds over a period of thirteen seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis. Some of the students who were shot were protesting and others were just in the area on their way to class. At the end of April, President Nixon announced to the nation that the “Cambodian Incursion” had been launched by United States combat forces.
The police had attack dogs, there were bombs exploded, and four little black girls were killed at a church all in a little over a week. Birmingham jails were full, and police were concerned they weren't going to be able to contain the protesters and it resulted in them using water hoses on the mobs of people injuring many people. The protest in Birmingham left so much impact "President John F. Kennedy would later say, "The events in Birmingham... have so increased the cries for equality that no city or state or legislative body can prudently choose to ignore them."" (PBS,
