The most interesting parts of Obama’s speech, to me, were the clarifications on his educational policies. His plans for higher education, such as halting student loan payments after 20 years or 10 years for public servants, seemed pretty cool to me. I’m not sure if taking government money to be used for student loans and giving it to parents while simultaneously stopping loan payments after 20 years is such a good idea. Pissing off the entire banking system might not be such a good idea in the long run. Grunts will be fired before CEOs cut their own bonuses, and I really don’t feel like that is particularly conducive to a good financial system.
In November 2016, Donald Trump was elected president of the United States. With a campaign centered around otherization and nationalism, the atmosphere of this election, as well as the attitudes of the citizens of the country, bears similarities to 1930s Nazi Germany. While it may initially seem far-fetched to compare
President Donald Trump announced an extremely important policy that he wanted to an enact… through the popular social media site called Twitter. A summarization of what his tweet means is as follows; Transgender individuals are a disruption to the victory of the military. This message provoked outrage and, consequently, little approval nationwide. In order to formulate his message, President Donald Trump used the tool of rhetorical appeals. As stated by Doug Downs, Aristotle observed that people usually made three kinds of appeals: to logic, to emotion, and to a rhetor’s credibility (Downs 469). Emotional appeals, also called pathos, toy with a reader’s feelings, through the use of manipulative claims, in order to convince the reader of something
The Controversy Behind the Death Penalty Some people think that the death penalty is a bad thing and others think that it serves the people right but I don’t really know which side to believe because there are good facts protecting both sides. The Death Penalty is a controversial issue.
The year is 2020, President Trump’s presidency is coming to an end, but it cannot come sooner to the American people. Trumps years in the Oval Office would have been great if not for his sudden decision to initiate the removal of immigrants during his last months as President. Every major city in the United States is swarming with Immigration and Custom Enforcement agents. Immigrants are being taken right out of the workplace, rounded up, handcuffed and sent back to their home country. As the immigrant population disseminates, hundreds of local businesses across the nation go bankrupt. Boarded up store fronts are now the norm. With the dramatic decrease in the immigrant population almost no one is willing to invest in the infrastructure of towns with low socio-economic statuses. Farms are being left no crop pickers, in a few weeks there will be a shortage of produce across the United States. As people begin to ration, the economy continues to plummet. Every day the immigrant population decreases and everyday more businesses close, more food goes bad because of the lack of crop pickers, and more people begin to realize the importance of the immigrant population. This could soon be our reality, if immigration is not dealt with properly and in accordance with current information.
America’s strategy of capital punishment believes that killing someone actually solves the problem of reducing crime rates, when in reality it is more of a method to avoid the real issue with the criminal justice system. We are killing all these prisoners and not really getting the answers we need. For instance, are we really stopping crime? Also, the death penalty puts innocent lives at risk because of how flawed it is. Since the introduction of the death penalty in the United States in 1976, 138 innocent men and women have been released from Death Row, including some who came within minutes of execution with the death penalty. Therefore, I am against the death penalty and wish for it to be terminated due to the fact that it is morally wrong and has little to no impact when it comes to reducing crimes rates. This makes it practically useless and straight-up stupid; it also distracts us to a point of making us avoid the true ways to actually reduce crime in America.

Kasidy Moneer Imperial Presidents Midterm Essay Donald John Trump. Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton. Two very distinct, ideologically diverse individuals. Both in the running to become the next President of the United States. The current president, Barack Obama, has served as a dramatic foil to his own predecessor George W Bush. But if elected, how will Clinton or Trump run the office? Political scientist Stephen Skowronek assesses the history and actions of the presidency in his book The Politics Presidents Make. He distinguishes four types of political identities, reconstructive, articulate, disjunctive, and preemptive. Based on their expressed ideologies and goals for the future, using Skowronek’s ideals, one can determine what kind of president each candidate could be.
