    Last year, President Clintons State of the Union address came just as the Monica Lewinsky scandal was exploding into public view. Clinton nevertheless gave a rousing speech, memorable for his call to save Social Security first. This year, the address came as Clinton stands trial in the Senate.

  • Censorship - 864 words
    Censorship The subject of censorship is a very controversial one, especially the banning of books. Many people believe they must protect themselves and others from the evils of many classic books and works of art because they can be deemed indecent in one way or another. Many believe that this is absurd and censorship in its current form is a violation of our First Amendment right to free speech. Personally, I align myself with the latter, however I do feel there are occasions where censorship is justifiable. The censorship of books is a division of censorship that, apart from Internet censorship, receives the most publicity. Banning books is the most popular form of such censorship. Many ba ...

  • Clinton Impeachment - 1,894 words
    Clinton Impeachment Clinton has been impeached for committing perjury and the obstruction of justice in order to try to cover up the present evidence associated with the Paula Jones civil rights case. In 1868, the House of Representatives impeached President Andrew Johnson because he unfairly fired his War Secretary. He was not removed from office because of a Senate vote of 35-19; he was one vote short of being guilty. In 1974, the Democrats marked President Nixon for factual reasons over Watergate and drafted Articles of Impeachment for thought by the full House. Before the vote his main advisors claimed that they would be unable to support him any further leading to his resignation. This ...

  • Crucible And Clinton Similarities - 641 words
    Crucible And Clinton Similarities Arthur Millers The Crucible and the scandal surrounding President Clinton can be compared in profusion. The old saying of history repeating itself is certainly proved true in this state of affairs (no pun intended), proving the timelessness of The Crucible. Key players utilized by Miller can be interpreted into many notorious faces portrayed by the media encircling our fearless leader. Although all comparisons are not players at all, but some merely concepts. The most obvious comparison protrudes from this circumstance like a sore thumb. This is the correlation between President Clinton and John Proctor. The primary similarity in their characters is the act ...

  • Dantes Inferno - 1,125 words
    Dante's Inferno Dantes Inferno is one of the three parts of his Divine Comedy. The Inferno is divided into thirty-four cantos, each containing a description of a specific region of hell. Sinners in each area are punished for different sins. Sinners of lust suffer in upper hell, sinners of violence in middle hell, and the sinners of fraud in the lowest part of hell. The sufferings of these people are portrayed through Dantes eyes as he descends lower and lower into hell with Virgil, his helper. The punishment for each sinner corresponds to the sin that they committed. In Canto 18, Dante and Virgil travel into the First and Second Pouch of the eighth circle of hell, also called Malebolge. This ...

    ... the South, promising them better trade relations with the troubled Asian markets in the 1970s (Avirett 22). All these are just a few examples of politicians taking every advantage possible to gain more money for their campaigns, undermining the legitimacy of the American government. The method in which we elect the President, on the other hand, is fairly legitimate. The electoral college consists of representatives who we elect, who then elect the President. Because this fills the requirement of regularly scheduled elections, it is a legitimate process. The President is extremely powerful in foreign policy making; so powerful that scholars now speak of the "Imperial Presidency," implying ...

Core Issue Richard Morin writes about a problem plaguing polls across the nation. Morin states that many Americans polled do not understand the poll questions, yet they seem to always have an opinion on most questions poised. Supporting Ideas 1) When President Clinton was confronted with questions about his past actions with Monica Lewinsky, he created ambiguity within the questions.

  • Eric Glave 266 Words - 1,669 words
    Eric Glave 266 Words ECO 2013 "Death of Outrage" By William J. Bennet William J. Bennett, secretary of education and chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities under President Reagan captured the public imagination with the best-selling Book of Virtues, a compendium of other people's writing that had something to teach about morality. In his new book, Bennett advances his own credo of right and wrong, and it is far less compelling. It is a slim book with a correspondingly slim premise: that the American public's failure to be outraged at President Clinton's lies about his private life is evidence of our moral and intellectual disarmament. The book has six brief chapters with the gran ...

When we think of gender equality discrimination against women is what comes to mind, but in recent years psychologist and sociologist have began to study how men are discriminated against. It is considered general knowledge that men still make more money a year then women, and it is true that men hold most of the position of power in society. Recent studies have concluded that there is an aspect of society that discriminates against men. This aspect of society is deeply rooted in the American culture, and it is hard to name, to discuses, and to study. Gender roles for men, then ...

    Larry Flint Larry Flynt Infamous pornographer and free-speech activist Larry Flynt has brought about controversy for nearly 30 years. As the editor of Hustler magazine, Flynt has publicized pornographic obscenities in several manors.

Larry Flynt was born on November 1, 1942. Coming from a broken home, he later joined the military under false age. Flynt was discharged and after several unsuccessful jobs, went back to serve for five years on the U.S ...

  • Mate Preference - 960 words
    Mate Preference His main area of study has been human desires, what people want when they are looking for a husband or wife. To research this, he surveyed over ten thousand people in thirty-seven cultures on six continents. What his findings show is that men tend to choose mates more on physical attractiveness and youth. While women seek men with more financial power. Now this may come as no surprise to us in America, because men here have always wanted women who were more physically attractive, and women have always wanted to marry a rich man, like a doctor or a lawyer. What Buss found out is that it is also similar in other cultures. How a mans wealth is determined may vary, but the mans d ...

So much so that it has been called by many, the fourth branch of government. Originally, media power was only vested in the papers, but today radio and television are the more prominent forms of news. Since the administration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, presidents have used the media to spread their views to their constituents. FDR brought us the fireside chats in one of which he requested the American people to put their money back into the banks and get our economy moving again. The media informed the nation of Richard Nixon's less then honorable means of governing a ...

    Nathan Thayer Cpw-3 Bill Clinton Oct. 15, 98 Many presidents of the United States have been accused of having an affair. Most of these accusations can not be proven. The presidents usually get off the hook and nothing else is said about the affair ever again. In Bill Clintons case it is very different. He was accused of having an affair with Monica Lewinsky. Instead of letting it go, they decided to make a big deal about it and take the President to court. Of course, trying to protect his wife and daughter, the President lied under oath and denied having an affair with Monica. Now, they are taking President Clinton to court to decide whether he should be impeached or not. Bill Clinton only c ...

  • Presidential Powers - 1,664 words
    Presidential Powers In every government there is a ceremonial head of the government who is the symbol of all the people in the nation. As Howard Taft put it, "The personal embodiment and representative of their dignity and majesty" (McClenaghan, pg. 316). That person is the Chief of State or more commonly known as the President. One of the main factors that cause the presidents to be viewed as a symbol of the American community is the president's ceremonial duties which are named in the Constitution. The Constitution states several ceremonial duties that the presidents are "obliged" to perform. They are required to take an oath of office, periodically inform Congress of the State of Union, ...
