  • America Tax - 1,138 words
    ... dollars annually from taxpayers. The people who benefit the most are the people who get to collect from government programs that give benefits to qualified individuals. Such benefits could range from low income housing, college tuition grants, to tax exempt investments for investors who invest in government approved projects normally associated with other government aid to investors. The people who get ripped off are the people who never get to collect from any government give-a-ways. The people who get ripped off are the people who pay absurd amounts of taxes every year so that the government can support these programs. The American government gives away billions of dollars to foreign ...

  • Crucible Tale Of Trials - 1,198 words
    Crucible Tale Of Trials A political cartoon shows a massive stone wall surrounding tall office buildings which bear labels of "Department of Energy," "Defense Department," "National Security Agency," "CIA," and "FBI." Outside the wall, which is tagged "Government Secrecy," a couple huddles in a roofless hut called "Personal Non-Privacy." At the top of the cartoon is printed "Somehow I feel this is not the way the founders planned it." Indeed, America's founding fathers most likely did not plan for the United States to be governed in such a manner that the people of its democracy would feel debunked. How, then, did the United States since its founding in 1776 come to this feeling of exposure? ...

  • Digital Attachment - 465 words
    Digital Attachment For the past few years, the digital world has captured my attention. A creation made in 1969 by the Defense Department has become my release from reality; a way to explore, learn, and discover something new day after day. The Information Super-Highway is my community. As with almost everything, being attached to something so strongly has both positive and negative effects. For some people, the Internet is nothing more and nothing less than a bundle of information. For others such as myself, the Internet is not only a form of learning - it's a way to express myself. For example, owning a personal webpage gives me the opportunity to express myself in a way that is much diffe ...

  • During The 1970s, Health Concerns About The Herbicides Brought About Government Restrictions That Caused A Sharp Decrease In - 1,180 words
    During the 1970s, health concerns about the herbicides brought about government restrictions that caused a sharp decrease in the manufacture and use of 2,4,5-T. Since 1983, the use of 2,4,5-T has been prohibited in the United States. Many other countries also have ended its use. Of additional concern is a contaminant called dioxin (2,3,7,8,-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, or TCDD), which often forms when 2,4,5-t is manufactured. Of the approximately 75 chemicals in the dioxin family, TCDD is the most toxic. It can cause chlorance, a skin disease, and is suspected to cause some kinds of cancer. The TCDD level in agent orange varied from 0.02 to 54 micrograms per gram of 2,4,5-T. (Cancer 1996) Ag ...

Block Is were the initial R and D birds and a few (four or five) are still ope! rating. They're smaller than the Block II production satellites and don't have the same amount of military spook stuff aboard. They're also not selective-availability equipped. The full constellation of GPS satellites is due to be in orbit by mid-1993, if all goes according to plan. (No guarantee there). Until then, the system is deemed by the Defense Department to be under construction. THE BOYS IN BLUE The U.S. Air For ...

  • Iran Contra - 1,269 words
    Iran Contra Iran Contra: Hidden Policy In 1922 President Franklin Roosevelt introduced the "Good Neighbor" Policy. This policy was created to keep the United States from getting involved in problems that could and would occur in Central America. This policy, however, did not stop many government agencies from interfering and creating a few new problems for United States neighbors. Of course, all of this was done in an aim to better the political position of the United States. In 1953, the Central Intelligence Agency created a rumor of an assassination attempt in Guatemala to run the corrupt government out of the country. This is a perfect example of the United States sidestepping policy and ...

  • Irancontra - 1,005 words
    Iran-Contra The Iran-Contra affair is not one scandalous incident, but rather two covert operations started under Reagan's administration. In the beginning, these two operations were independent of each other, but eventually became linked though funds received from the sale of arms to Iran for hostages and then given to the Contras fighting to overthrow a Marxist government in Nicaragua. The scandal began with Nicaraguan politics. After the Marxist Sandinista regime took over Nicaragua in 1979, the government was faced with a growing communist threat to US interest in Central America. When President Reagan took office in 1981, he was vehemently determined to halt the spread of communism, esp ...

  • New York Times Vs Us 1971 - 1,108 words
    New York Times vs. U.S. (1971) This case came at a time when America was at unrest. A controversial war had divided the country. Opinions and arguments about whether the US involvement in Vietnam was warranted occupied the minds of American citizens. The people were hungry for information regarding the war. The Pentagon Papers, somehow leaked to the New York Times and Washington Post, fulfilled this need of the people for information. The government's assumption of prior restraint seemed to be a major blow to free speech and a sharp addition to the power of the government. The appellate courts' indecisiveness brought the ultimate decision to the Supreme Court. There was a deep division of op ...

  • North Korea - 3,011 words
    North Korea The United States has been presented a dilemma towards its foreign policy with the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (North Korea). North Koreas alleged launch of a new Taepo-Dong I missile on August 31, 1998 has heightened American worries and escalated an already tense situation with North Korea. The United States response towards this new missile, which could possibly be able to reach the edges of both Alaska and Hawaii , will be a factor in its decision on whether or not to continue to finance support towards North Korea. New sanctions could mean the collapse of a weak North Korean economy. Already on the brink of economic and political collapse, the loss of U.S. and KEDO ...

Among unresolved issues were exact procedures for ensuring effective verification of any new agreement and the preferred relationship between strategic offensive and defensive forces. The United States favored the rapid and eventual deployment of nationwide defensive systems, as indicated by its support of the Strategic Defense Initiative. The Soviet Union was sharply critical of SDI. They did not want the system employed because that would have meant losing the arms race. By 1985, the Space Shuttle was conducting missions in space for the SDI program. The 18th Shuttle flight took place on June 17 - 24 ...

  • Polygraphs - 1,403 words
    Polygraphs Introduction Homo Sapiens have yearned for a reliable and consistently correct way of finding out if one is telling the truth since ancient times. Early societies used torture. Statements made by a person on the rack were considered especially believable. (Jussim, pg.65) There was also trial by ordeal, which was based on superstition. For instance, if there were two suspects for one crime, it was thought that the innocent would be stronger in combat and thus vanquish a guilty opponent. This example shows how it was done long ago. The ancient Hindus made suspects chew rice and spit it into a leaf from a sacred tree. If they couldnt spit, they were ruled guilty. Although this proced ...

    Ronald Wilson Reagan Ronald Wilson Reagan Many famous people have lived during this century. How are they recognized for their achievements that they have accomplished? Some notable figures have buildings and roads named after them. Some have statues or plaques erected for the accomplishments. The only thing about the above mentioned way of giving recognition to a person for doing something is not everyone in America has a chance to realize that a person has succeeded in such a way that they have been honored. On the other hand if a person has reached an achievement so great, why not consider to put the picture on a United States postage stamp. One person in the past one hundred years has ea ...

  • Secrecy: The American Experience By Senator Daniel P Moynihan - 1,164 words
    Secrecy: The American Experience By Senator Daniel P. Moynihan According to a survey performed for the Defense Department in 1996, it was found that the majority of U.S. citizens believe that the government withholds too much information by classifying it as a secret. In this book, Secrecy: The American Experience, Senator Daniel P. Moynihan reinforces that view. This is a distinctive book with numerous weaknesses, some errors, and one great strength. The weakness is that the book shows controversial arguments rather than a policy analysis. Moynihan has a particular view he wants to advance, and he is not interested in considering alternate explanations or exploring evidence that is contradi ...

  • The Internet Is A Method Of Communication And A Source - 1,335 words
    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 be an appropriate function of the government. The Communications Decency Act is an amendment which prevents the information superhighway from becoming a computer "red light district."
