In act 2, scene 3, Walter faces the barrier of his money being stolen by Willy Harris (128). Immediately following the theft, Walter is crushed and wants to take the money the citizens of Clybourne Park raised to keep the Younger’s out of their neighborhood and use it to replace the lost insurance money (3.1 141,142).

He gets an old student of his and they start making meth. By this point Walter has already changed from the everyday guy to the antihero because you don 't want to root for him, but at the same time he is just trying to make money for his family. While they are making meth he gets more power and becomes scarier to people out on the streets because he kills a few people because they get in his way for making more and more money. Still while this is happening, you want him to achieve his goal of making money just for his family, but all the power gets
Society’s values influence people to construct their personal mores around them, and those who do not are not accepted by society. In our society, those who have well-paying careers are valued above those who do not. So when McCandless decided against following the path society expects him to, his parents were upset. “Chris informed his parents that he had no intention of going to college. When Walt and Billie suggested that he needed a college degree to attain a fulfilling career, Chris answered that careers were demeaning ‘twentieth-century inventions,’ more of a liability than an asset, and that he would do fine without one, thank you” (114).

He started off as a father who was so obsessed with money and status, he lost sight of his family. From this point he kept making mistakes and sank deeper into a hole of his obsessions. Walter finally climbed out of the hole by choosing to help his family over himself by declining Lindner’s deal. In this climax of pride, it is clear that, in many ways, Walter dreams of being a man and is simply consumed by the incorrect belief that materialism is the only means toward this goal. Achieving the status of head of the family and proving his worth as a man opens Walter's eyes to the variety of ways that he can better his family’s future.
By 1932, Americans had reversed the approval and disapproval making the disapproval rating had gone higher. Americans disapproved the prohibition because the criminality and murder went up, business’ were going down and it was impossible to enforce no alcohol.

Hi Miranda, I am sorry to hear about the property damage performed within your parent 's neighborhood. These actions affect the property values of homes when the house is sold for a much lower value that the market value.

and they also make arguments of paying college athletes pointless. Most people agree that if college athletes did get paid it wouldn’t be a total shock but it is just not that easy.

The point of college is to get you ready for the real world and if college athletes get paid while in college it totally defeats the purpose of college.
The number just isn’t enough to build a bias. Alcohol or prescription pills aren’t included in those findings, and alcohol and prescription drugs are very much something that can be abused…heavily. It is unfortunately very common for those addicted, to exchange groceries for a smaller amount of cash and use it to buy drugs, alcohol, cigarettes. I could explain for hours the ins and outs of the TANF program but in short summary, it is very political and contradicting.

The main character, Rachel Watson, had recently divorced her husband, Tom, and found herself missing the seemingly perfect life she had with him. Much like Melinda, Rachel feels worthless and disapproves of her appearance as well after the divorce. Her becoming an alcoholic over time was the main cause of the split.

After she would sober up, he would tell her all the horrible things she said and did while she was drunk, like the time she attacked him with a golf club.
