Don’t you hate when your taxes go to making useless pennies or when they take up space in a mess. Even though people think pennies are helpful they are not because they cost 2.41 to make just one. For years the Unites States have been discussing if we should get rid of the penny. Pennies shouldn’t be made in the United States. Source 1 states, other countries have got rid of the penny and were successful.
“ The U.S. is among the last of the industrialized nations to abolish the peskiest little bits of coinage” (Source C). More and more counties will soon join in on the laughter as they dismantle their low value coins. It would be a different story if we used the pennies. Only about one-third of the pennies are in circulation, the other two-thirds of them are hiding in our chair cushions (Source C). Not only is the government losing money from the missing two-thirds, but it is also wasting money on workers.
Nowadays debris is an integral part of humanity life. Mankind thinks about how to make the product easier and cheaper to use, but nobody cares what happens with waste after it was used. We contaminate the environment with every decade increasingly: muddied air and water, global warming are an output of human life. The worst thing is that from such attitude other living beings are dying. Millions of animals and birds cannot withstand such environmental changes; their populations become smaller and, eventually, disappear altogether from the face of the earth.
I believe that the Joy Luck Club is called the same thing to remember what happened on the mountain and the losses that these immigrants feel every day. When they invest in stocks, they are hoping to get lucky. They still have the same basic principles of the original club, but the immigrants have modernized this club to better fit in American culture. The name also remains to remind the members that there will always be a little thing that can help to keep you optimistic, a little bit of hope and fun times with your friends can make the bad times worse.
For decades it seems that as America got wealthier and prospered, we also took on the responsibility to protect weaker nations. This has given us amazing opportunities to advance our businesses in those other countries. But today, the respect that American interests get from other countries has declined, so much that our foreign relations and alliances no longer guarantee that American
The drinking age in America has been unchanged over many years but I believe that this is one area of law that should stopped being overlooked as it may be the cause for many unforeseen negative effects. The amount of taxpayers money that is spent on the current law system is outrageous for many reasons, one reason is the number of people in jail or correctional facilities. As we move on to try and better our society in gender inequality and many other areas this is a area that deserves to be targeted as well. One of the ways we could limit the number of people in the law system is ridding the system of unjust laws. Another way is to try to teach people the effects of using alcohol in a responsible manner.
Deregulation, growing criticism of the welfare state, and an ideological shift to reducing federal aid to impoverished people in the 1980s and 1990s culminated in the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996. In a New York Times article, the director of the committee stated, "Today, the ranks of the poor are again swelling ... These and other statistics have led careless observers to conclude that the war on poverty failed. No, it has achieved many good results. Society has failed.
Author Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “ Unless you try to do something beyond what you already mastered, you will never grow.” Most people are afraid of making mistakes so they stay in their comfort zone. I believe that this statement is true, because making mistakes is how you learn and improve, stepping out of your comfort zone can lead to more friends and better experiences, and if you don’t try new things, you might miss out on something you love! The first reason I agree, is because making mistakes is how you learn and improve. No one is perfect and making mistakes help to make you better in the long run. For instance, I have learned from my mistakes many times.
Oklahoma’s Baggage Have you ever really thought about how harmful some of the everyday things you do could be, potentially to the environment in a substantial way? Plastic bags are one of those problems we face in our world today. Most people bring plastic bags when coming back from a grocery store or a quick trip to the gas station. Most of these bags end up in the trash in one way or another after minimal use. These bags not only affect us humans in a negative way but also are a significant harm to many animal and our mother Earth.
Contrary to popular belief “first-world” countries are not immune to parasites. In fact, parasitic infections are more common than most people think. You may even have parasites living in your intestines right now. And, when undiagnosed, they could live, feast and digest inside you for years, leaving you feeling ill most of the time. But here’s the good news — there are remedies that eliminate parasites.
This project was a lot harder then my family and I ever expected it to be. At first we thought it would be good and we would feel better about not wasting and not having as much trash. But after a couple of days we noticed that we couldn’t do a lot of things we normally do like wipe our hands on a napkin or use a straw to drink at a resturaunt. We as a whole had to make a lot of changes like making our foods the night before and bringing clean towels with us everywhere we went. This project has really made us open our eyes to see what we were actually doing to hurt our environment just by going through our daily routine.
