The New Bankruptcy Law - Bankruptcy has been the answer to extremely troubling and difficult financial times for many people in America. Many individuals, for one reason or another, have found it to be the new start in life that they desperately needed. Unfortunately, bankruptcy has also served as a crutch to many as well, allowing them to relinquish debt that they were completely capable, however selfishly unwilling, to pay. As with any law, or policy, Americans are forced to accept the good with the bad, choosing which outweighs the other....   [tags: essays research papers] 1525 words

The Power and Significance of Congress - The Power and Significance of Congress Firstly it is important to look at the power and significance of congress as a legislative body. This includes the creation of law, and the scrutiny of the executive. Because the US federal system is ruled by 'separation of powers', it is important that the legislative - congress - acts as a good check and restraint on the executive - the president. The most significant power that congress has is to create and pass legislation. Most of the creation is down to congressional committees - specialist groups of congressman who revise and investigate laws into their own committee's interests, for example The House Science Committee....   [tags: Papers] 1200 words

The Health Care Puzzle - The Health Care Puzzle Health care in the United States has improved immensely during the past century. Improved technology has finally allowed us to eliminate deadly disease from our society. Unfortunately, the technology is expensive and has put monetary burdens upon the care receivers.

The Defense of Marriage Act Violates the Civil Liberties of Same Sex Couples - ... Opponents argue that same sex marriage not only infringes on religious freedom and that such unions are in contradiction to the biblical purpose of marriage, but will also have the effect of normalizing and encouraging homosexual behavior. However, many Christian leaders have spoken out in support of same sex marriage, going so far as to state that it would only strengthen marriage as an institution. Christian supporters also note that in widely respected works of biblical records the term "homosexual" is never used, affirming the claims that the term is actually a mistranslation from the original text of the bible....   [tags: gay studies, gay marriage, argumentative, persuasi] 1034 words

Should Individual Citizens in Canada Be Able To Own Guns? - Should Individual Citizens in Canada Own Guns. Recently, there has been an issue in Canada on whether individual citizens can have their own handguns or not. Some believe that gun control is absolutely necessary to prevent people from becoming victims of gun crimes, while others maintain the exact opposite view. I agree with the latter, but I also think it is appropriate for the government to regulate the gun-dealing business. First of all, disarming the ordinary people punished the law-abiding citizens, secondly, no clear evidence links gun availability with gun violence, and lastly, with laws to rule the gun-dealing industry, it will not be a concern that people will be shot by a legal gun buyer who is in the heat of passion to kill....   [tags: Individual Rights, Canadian, Gun Control] 662 words

Since violence in the media has long been analyzed and discussed by researchers and media, several measures have since been implemented to stop or reduce violence on television.

We Need Immigration to Remain Strong - We Need Immigration to Remain Strong   As sheltered an enclave as the university campus is, it would take a veritable hermit not to be aware of the emergence of immigration as an important national issue. It is so ubiquitous that even the locals might know something about it; their town, after all, is prepared to evict some immigrants from overcrowded housing. Perhaps, though, your exposure to the issue is cursory, and maybe, like many Americans, you lean to the right in your views on it. After all, it seems quite logical that if hordes of people keep streaming across our borders unchecked, there is bound to be some unhealthy social and economic consequences....   [tags: Pros of Immigration, Immigrants] 2013 words
