Pornography and Freedom of Speech
Pornography and Freedom of Speech When the first amendment was written, it was not intended to be used as an excuse for society to make such filth as pornography obtainable to men, women, and children alike. The pornography situation of today’s society significantly contributes to the decline of the country’s moral standards in several different ways (Leone 105). The many different types of pornography pose a sobering threat to society in general and the family in particular by presenting them w

When I reached the back of the house to enter I could distinguish the song that was playing; it was “It’s good to be King” by Tom Petty. After waiting in a line to enter I was finally in the loud, crowded house. Upon my arrival the host of the party informed me that there were no cups left, and that I would have to look for one. So I handed him my money as I was shoved into the next room by o

At some point in life we will all experience the loss of innocence Thi
At some point in life, we will all experience the loss of innocence. This loss is not a choice but an eventuality. In the novel They Shall Inherit the Earth, Michael Aikenhead, Andrew Aikenhead and Dave Choate have all experienced this loss of innocence in different ways, but mainly through the perspective of others. Morley Callaghan in They Shall Inherit the Earth demonstrates the loss of innocence through the actions and conflicts between the characters in the novel. Michael Aikenhead had

TV shows are probably the primary source of entertainment for the average American. Most of them run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. with reruns starting at 5 p.m. We watch them because they give us something to do, a way to relax, something to help pass the time. We all watch different shows, some people like Married...with Children, some are repulsed with it, but like to watch Home Improvement, what draws particular crowds to certain shows? How do these shows portray the average American, or do th

A View from the Bridge
A View from the Bridge In what ways does Eddie’s attitude towards Catherine dominate the action of the whole play? All of Eddie’s actions in the play, from deciding what Catherine wears and whom she dates to phoning the immigration authorities, are dominated by his quasi-incestuous feelings for his niece. They lead to the tragic dénouement which ends in his own death. Right from the beginning of the play, the audience can see Eddie’s possessive and patriarchal nature towards Catherine when she s

PRO-GAY MARRIAGE IN AMERICA
PRO-GAY MARRIAGE IN AMERICA America is the land of liberty where everyone has freedom of choice of lifestyle, religion etc. America has always believed in equality with a few exceptions from history which were resolved. Segregation is one of those exceptions. African-Americans until 1965 were passionately hated by whites. Even after the legislation was passed saying that all men are equal, America still struggled to adapt to this change. Today America would not do such a thing as discriminating

Drinking and driving is one of the more difficult problems for our soc
Drinking and driving is one of the more difficult problems for our society to solve. Organizations such as MADD, DUI, and many other groups have gone to great lengths to educate people of all ages on this situation. Unfortunately, in many cases their struggle has not been effective enough. While 80% of drivers have heard of blood alcohol level from an informative paper or commercial, only 20% know what their state's limit is. (www.madd.org) Essentially, this means that the message is not sinkin
The Catcher In The Rye
The Catcher In The Rye
The Catcher In The Rye I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody around- nobody big, I mean- except me. And I am standing on some edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, is I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff- I mean if they're running and they don't look where they are going I have to come out of somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in th
Open AA Meeting
Open AA Meeting
Open AA Meeting I attended an AA meeting back home in St. Louis during spring break. It was an open meeting, required by the course. The meeting wasn't like I expected. I was under the impression that the room was going to be full of alcoholics, standing up and saying, Hi, I'm (blank), and I'm an Alcoholic. Like something I've seen on TV, portrayed in sitcoms, or comedy skits. A. A. is a support group, I know that, but the support comes from all over. I saw family members sitting with the s

Dwight David Eisenhower The taste of victory was fresh and sweet to John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Just about a year ago, he sat in the drawing room of his Georgetown home and spoke breezily about the office he would assume. Sure it's a big job, he said. But I don't know anybody who can do it any better than I can. I'm going to be in it for four years. It isn't going to be so bad. you've got time to think -- and besides, the pay is pretty good. One year later, on a cool, grey day, the 35th Preside

Drinking, How fun!? Joseph Swarengin Dr. Walters English 101 23 September, 1998 I am writing about how a lot and I mean a lot of kids who do the same thing, as far as drinking goes, from generation to generation. How can you teach the lesson that it is not safe to drink and drive when that is what half of the kids parents do. I live in Blaine Hall at Missouri Southern State College and the guys here do the same thing over and over. They go lift weights and take their over the counter steroids li

A Drunk Bus Driver And A Bad Accident. Sometimes, even from the most unsuspecting people wonderful and profound messages can originate. This is the story of one such incident when much could be learned from a person like that. On the way to school one day, this kid named Patrick went around telling everyone that he had some beer in his lunch box. Now in the 9th grade, this topic of conversation is new and exciting. He was the center of attention, and was enjoying it immensely. We all knew he did

Dont Blame Me
Dont Blame Me Who job is it really to realize if you or myself have had too much to drink? What we're discussing is the simple fact if it is a bar's, bartender, or waiters' responsibility for their customers actions once they leave. Some people believe so, like our State of Texas. The question is whose respoonsibility really is it? I actually don't believe that it is no one persons responsibility for how much one person drink, except for the people themselves. The State on the other had believes

Two Kinds of People on Campus Party Animal and The Sober Guy
Two Kinds of People on Campus: Party Animal and The Sober Guy In college there are two kinds of people, the party animal, and The sober guy. The sober guy stays out of trouble, studies hard, and sometimes keeps to himself. The party animal studies (most of the time), never avoids trouble, and socializes. A party animal is always at the party, in line for the keg. He usually shows up early and partys too late. Rarely would one see the sober guy at a college party. The party animal never cares abo

Date Rape Date Rape Matt Barone November 20, 1996 Craft of Language MTH 2:30-3:45 When people hear the word rape they might imagine a stranger leaping out from the shadows of a dark alley and attacking someone. Although this is partly true, most rapes are committed by people who know their victims. When intercourse is unwanted and forced upon by someone you know, it is known as “ date rape.” It occurs daily and is prevalent on virtually all college campuses across the nation and in cities al
