Walter wants to be there for his family and give his son a head start in life. In order for this to happen Walter believes that he should invest in an liquor store as a “get rich quick scheme”. It clear that Walter is not aware of how much of a risk investing that much money in something you don't know much about is.
He wants to be a businessman and own a liquor store. He wants to be able to provide for his family and give them what they have never had. Walter also wants to take his mother’s position as the head of the house and make the financial decisions for the family. Walter can be seen as selfish as instead of putting the money for him and his sister in the bank he uses it all and loses it trying to fulfill his own dreams with no regard to his sister’s dreams or the rest of the family’s.
In “The Raisin in the Sun” by Lorraine Hansberry, feelings and emotions are represented by symbols. For example when Walter and Ruth fuss about the eggs, this represents how much they love each other and how they will always have tension. One symbol that is repetitive is mama's plant . Mamas plant symbolizes the family growing, their dreams of success and her dreams of a garden.

A Raisin in the Sun Dignity is the most important thing to Walter Lee in A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansberry. While in the beginning, Walter states that “Life is money,” by the end, he seems to value his dignity more. Throughout the play, he wants, more than anything, to be an owner of a liquor store. He soon decides, however, that it’s more important for his family to have dignity, than to give in to what society expects of them.
(...) A man needs for a woman to back him up…” This shows that Walter feels that it’s his full responsibility to provide for his family and give them the money without being the “man” (head) of the family and make decisions about the money or take it and achieve his dream which collapsed in the end after the money was stolen by his best friend Willy Harris. Walter Lee wanted to achieve his dream by buying the liquor store with his family insurance money and prove that he is a man to his family after
To choose others before yourself requires generosity and true kindness which doesn’t seem very common anymore. Throughout the play “A Raisin in the Sun”, Lorraine Hansberry developed the theme of putting others before yourself through the financial welfare of the household, supporting extracurricular activities, and the responsibilities of being a parent. Even as the Younger family was poor and had no extra money to spend, they always found a way to make everything turn out okay. As Travis wanted extra money to spend, Walter tried to hide the reality of their situation as Ruth told Travis no, “cause we don’t have it” and Walter replies, “What you tell the boy things like that for?
Walter dreams of gaining money through the liquor store, a highly improbable goal. As the play continues, Walter realizes how absurd this goal is and decides to abandon his American Dream. As a result, he takes it on himself to ensure that his mother’s American Dream gets fulfilled when he mentions “we don’t want to make no trouble for nobody or fight causes, and we will try to be good neighbors … we don’t want your money” (Hansberry 148) to Lindner. By doing so, Walter makes it evident that he lost all interest in money and only wants to move into the house to aid in uniting his family, proving Walter’s shift in his American Dream. Clearly, using evidence from the Malcolm X’s legacy and Hansberry’s emphasis on Walter’s failure of his unique American Dream due to an improbable goal, the importance of every individual person having probable goals is vital to
He is still an anti federalist though because he is worried after reading the constitution that since he is being taxed by two people his taxes will go up and he would be still losing customers. George still wants the articles of confederation changed though so he won 't have to worry about his ship’s cargo and save some
Gatsby’s large income isn’t enough to satisfy his happiness. He feels the need to overflow his house with expensive items in order to show-off his wealth to Daisy. This showcases his carelessness and immodesty with money which is a huge part of his personality. You could say the he prefers form over function. Nick on the other hand, while still possessing money, decides to lead a simpler life without all the luxuries.
Low income families should not be receiving EBT because there are people who are in worse situations than them who deserve the EBT but cannot receive them while they haves jobs which at least give them money to support their family. If people do receive EBT then they would be abusing the system and reforms need to be made and we intend to regulate the increase on the wealthy and the way it would be decided is by searching their background in government help and decided whether they need it or not and it will go on by then. Those that need EBT are not allowed to receive them while, those that do not need them get to have it and benefit from them as shown in the EBT graphs. There are families out there who continue to have children knowing they do not have enough money to support their family but rely on the government thinking they are willing to help them out. Although, these families would take full advantage of EBT and housing when all they should do is stop having more children until they can support themselves without having anyone assist them or government provided aid.
As interest increases and the court wants more money it becomes an unreachable goal for a single parent. I believe child support is a lost cause, necessary, but lost. The government is willing to give out money to those in need, but they should not be expecting that full amount back in return. If the government doesn’t help these families, no one will. Some fortunate parents with well paying jobs can surprise the government, but most parents fall far below that portion of the
Also important is the opposition argument is that they need to cut spending due to the soldiers not going to get the help they have been offered but they really don’t know about the help anyways because the VA keeps it hidden until it 's too late. Even if they get the help they are charged for it and then really expensive and the VA barely affords it. They cut the spending by 1.4 billion dollars from last year. Another one is that the Va veterans want their health care paid for in full. They also want every soldier to go with the VA so they don’t have to go to go through private insurance so they could be possibly denied from the care they need.
