One reason is what is Obama doing with military money.Obama had given 150 billion dollars and is pitching a fit over 38 billion dollars that we are using for our defense Our military already do not get paid enough per month.They get paid 1416.30 at the closest per month.Which is not a lot at all. So I think that that is why soldiers should make more. I think that that baseball players should not make as much money as they do.They make an average 3 million a month. That compared to military is a huge gap.The worse that can happen to them
Although we declared war on Britain we were not equipped for such an extensive battle. We had only 16 battle ships to accommodate Britishes huge fleet. We were meager, ill furnished, and many of our officers knew about warfare. We were not ready. But one the money came and flowed in for the equipment we needed and the more little battles we won against Britain, the stronger we got.
Revising the US Senate... The US Senate is the least representative legislative and worst branch of a government body in the democratic world. An ever shrinking minority of voters has the power to obstruct policies favored by the majority of the American people. From the 18th century to the present, the ratio of large- to small-state populations has grown from 19-to-1 to 66-to-1. Today, half of the Senate can be elected by 15 percent of the American people—and the problem is only getting worse.
LeBron James returning to Cleveland has financially affected the team by causing increases in player expenses. Payer expenses is the amount of money a team is currently using as payroll for players. In the 2010-2011 season, the first year after James left the Cavaliers, the Cavaliers’ player expenses were still high at $90 million but dropped to $58 million the next season. The player expenses fell to $57 million for the next season because the Cavaliers had no players who deserved to be payed a maximum contract, they had no players who deserved to be making a lot of money. During the 2013-2014 season, the last before James’ return, the player expenses were at $72 million, an increase but still a very low number.
Canada should increase the amount of aid that it gives to other countries and, not to increase the amount of aid that it gives to aid itself. Primarily, in the recent years, Canada is not meeting its expectation from the United Nations on the total foreign aid spending and currently, Canada 's aid spending dropped to a 0.24% of GDP in 2014, down from 0.27% the previous year. That is significantly below the United Nations’ target of 0.7% of GDP which Canada is not close at all to. Instead of increasing our aid as more casualties follow, our aid is decreasing significantly for reasons that are not as important. “Over the last decade, Canada has been a diminishing actor in foreign aid, with spending falling to $4.2 billion in 2014, down from $5.6 billion two years earlier, ” states Jim Coyle, a valid journalist from the Toronto Star.
On average the Federal Mint spends 1.4 cents for every penny that they create. This doesn’t seem like a big deal, but considering that there are 13 billion pennies created annually in the US the cost for creating them gets very large very fast. Making them cost more to create than their actual value. Eliminating that cost would allow the budget spent on the Federal Mint to be reduced and there would be more cash in the Federal Budget to spend on other things. One argument against the elimination of the budget is the fact that it will alter the way American citizens are able to pay for things in a negative way.
Nope! China, a country of 1.4 Billion people, only spends about 132 billion dollars on its military. Obviously China is a major threat to America right? Well, not quite, America spends 600 billion dollars a year on defense, which is nearly 4 times as much. Education, Sciences, housing and other important parts of the budget are neglected.
The Iraq war also differed from the Vietnam War in operation standpoints. The United States fought in Vietnam from 1965 to 1973, and yet they never officially declared war in congress. Also, far more soldiers were killed in Vietnam than in Iraq: after 8 years in Vietnam, 58,148 U.S. soldiers were killed, while after 11 years, over 5,000 troops died. The major difference in the number of killed troops helps depict the operational differences. Another disparity was that Iraq did not have a functioning air force or the helpful air defenses that Vietnam had.
According to the chart of voting and jury rights of Blacks in the North in 1860, only five out of sixteen northern states allowed Blacks the right to vote (Doc A). This shows that even though fourteen percent of the population of America at the time was Black, they did not always get to vote. They cannot vote for people to represent them in government. This leads back to when Britain was taxing the colonies even though they had no representation in the British parliament. The Blacks are being taxed, yet they have no representation in government.
Just the casualties of Operation Barbarossa numbered 775 000, not counting soldiers that remained in Europe, which greatly outnumbers the Allies. No matter how much of a surprise Operation Overlord took the Nazis by due to the large difference in manpower and fighting force, Operation Overlord would never have led to the Allies victory. Therefore the Germans’ invasion of the soviet Union that caused them so many lives led to their defeat and the success of Operation
