Disability in The Workplace
"The Americans With Disabilities Act is one of the most significant laws
in American History. The preamble to the law states that it covers 43,000,000
Americans."(Frierson, p.3) Before the Americans With Disabilities Act(A.D.A.)
was passed, employers were able to deny employment to a disabled worker, simply
because he or she was disabled. With no other reason other than the persons
physical disability were they turned away or released from a job. The Americans
- Trouble With Bill Clintons Character
Trouble With Bill Clinton's Character
In the article, "The Trouble With Character" from Time magazine , writer
Richard Stengel describes Bob Dole's attacks on President Bill Clinton's
character during the second Presidential debate and explains why Dole's
criticisms did not affect Clinton.

Americans feel that someone else should d...
- Are Immigrants A To The U.S?
Are Immigrants A To the U.S?
Immigrants are not a burden to the U.S. Therefore, we shouldn't stop all
immigration . Immigrants are hard workers and are not causing unemployment for
The work ethic of today's immigrants os as strong as that of the Irish,
Italians, and Poles of early immigration. According to a 1990 census, forgien
born males have a 77% labor force participation. Now, compare that to the 74%
participation of native-born Americans and you see that immigra...
"It is conceivable, that life can deteriorate to the point where persons
lose their dignity and self-respect and are unable to communicate; life in such
a form no longer meets meets the basic criteria of human-ness." (O'Keefe, A1)
Under these circumstances only should Euthanasia be practiced and then only
passively ("pulling the plug”). “Dutch Death", Euthanasia, doctor assisted
suicide, whatever you want to call it, it should not be legalized.
People should liv...
- A Democratic Society
A Democratic Society
Throughout time the debate upon which is the best system of government
has been an ongoing debate. Somewhere between the realms of democracy,
socialism, fascism, communism, and monarchism lies the answer to the perfect
system. Traditionally speaking, North America has always tried to remain
democratic in ruling. The democratic system, unlike it's alternatives,
encourages equality and liberty among the people which in modern society, makes
it the most attractive ...

McCulloch v Maryland
Can congress incorporate a bank? Can a state tax the national government? These were some of the key issues that brought up in the Supreme Court case of McCullloch v Maryland. James Madison, the judge in this case, rules in favor of the National Government. He proclaimed that it was constitutional to have a national bank, and not appropriate for Maryland to tax the bank.
Now we turn the tables toward Mary...
- INTERNET REGULATION: POLICING CYBERSPACE
INTERNET REGULATION: POLICING CYBERSPACE
The Internet is a method of communication and a source
of information that is becoming more popular among those who
are interested in, and have the time to surf the information
superhighway. The problem with this much information being
accessible to this many people is that some of it is deemed
inappropriate for minors. The government wants censorship,
but a segment of the population does not. Legislative
regulation of the Internet would b...
- Who Was To Blame For The Cold War?
Who Was To Blame For The Cold War?
The blame for the Cold War cannot be placed on one person -- it
developed as a series of chain reactions as a struggle for supremacy. It can be
argued that the Cold War was inevitable, and therefore no one's fault, due to
the differences in the capitalist and communist ideologies. It was only the
need for self-preservation that had caused the two countries to sink their
differences temporarily during the Second World War. Yet many of the tensions
- The Government Should Make Use Of Revenue Sharing
The Government Should Make Use of Revenue Sharing
Federal grants have become more common over the last 60 years, due to the
expansion and retraction of the size of the federal government. The federal
government began expanding in the 1930s to deal with the Depression. It used
federal agencies to directly deal with problems. As time went on, the tasks
were turned over to the states, but the federal government still remained
involved through the use of federal grants to states and localities. ...

- Diplomatic Immunity
United Kingdom, 1982
While unloading the ship which carried the embassy's materials, one box marked
"household effects" dropped from a forklift. More than six hundred pounds of
marijuana worth 500,000 British pounds (1982 prices) spilled dockside.
For centuries governments have used ambassadors, and diplomats to represent
their nation. These special envoys have done everything from resolving years of
conflict, deciding on how much humanitarian relief will be...

Doublespeak: Nuclear Power Plants
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania is the home of a large, efficient, and
threatening nuclear power plant, Three Mile Island. Nuclear power plants have
the awesome ability to create large amounts of power with very little fuel, yet
they carry the frightening reality of a meltdown with very little warning.
Suppose you live in Harrisburg and you here that the nearby nuclear plant had a
partial meltdown, how would you react? When most people here the word meltdown...
- Civics Questions
1. How is government authority in the United States limited? Give one example.
The government can not interfere with those rights granted to the people through the Constitution
or the Bill of Rights. The Supreme Court is there to protect our individual rights and freedoms.
2.What is the difference between absolute rights and relative rights?
No person has an absolute freedom of speach; they are not free to say whatever they like. We do
have a relative freedom ...
- Human Rights
I agree that human rights do not lend themselves to neat formulae. The Universal Declaration of
Human Rights (UDHR) aims at guarding the interest of people residing in different countries. However, the
political and cultural environment of a country would shape these rights. Some of the rights the essay
would be discussing are the equality of the sexes, right to freedom of speech and education.
Contrary to the West, women in Asia are often exploited and deprived of the...
- The Second Amendment
The Second Amendment
Few issues incite americans more than the issue of rising crime and
violence. This problem can easily be linked to the availability of guns."The
debate over whether guns are a hallowed tradition and a right guaranteed by the
Second Ammendment of the U.S.constitution or whether they are a fearful danger
contributing to crime and violence." ("gun control") Due to the outbreak of
violence in our society, some people feel that repealing the Second Ammendment
