Taking Care of Your Pet

- Taking Care of Your Pet Many of you received your first pet when you were three. Buddy was his name and he was your cat. He was your companion. He would curl up beside you for a nap.

You loved that cat and showed your appreciation by carrying the cat around everywhere you went. You had tea parties with him, you dressed him up in you doll clothes, and made sure to tell him goodnight before you went to bed....   [tags: Animals Essays]

It’s Time to Demand More from Corporate America

- It’s Time to Demand More from Corporate America Michael Moore exposes corporate America's dark side in Roger and Me, Pets or Meat: The Return to Flint, and The Big One (Moore).  These show that corporate America is committing a form of domestic terrorism by dehumanizing and exploiting their workers then forcing them to the streets to survive. The actions by individuals such as Roger Smith and Phil Knight are perfect examples of capitalists constantly oppressing the working class described by Karl Marx.  By dehumanizing workers business owners are able to push them to the streets by closing factories and remain a good public image.  Who cares if these degenerate people lose their jobs?  T...   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Argument Essays]

- Companies Should Support Local Communities In a series of films, Michael Moore presents the fact that some people are greedy with their money. In his first film, Roger and Me, Moore tries to get Roger Smith, President of G.M., to visit Flint, Michigan, so he can see how closing a factory, where 30,000 people used to work, affects a community.

Animal Experimentation is Necessary

-      A contingent of those against the dog labs at the university protested last month, waving signs that read, "Kill. Heal. What's It Gonna Be?" and "The U Kills Dogs."  A fairly recent article in the Washington Post ("A Terminal Learning Environment"; Nov.  5, 2000) manages to move beyond the emotion and sloganeering used by these protesters to some of the real arguments of those in opposition; that the dog labs are "cruel, unnecessary and a waste of money" and that they "should be eliminated."1   However, the arguments used by the Washington Post (and ultimately, those in opposition) are insufficient to justify the termination of the dog labs at university.  The claim that the dog labs a...   [tags: Argumentative, Synthesis Essay Examples]

Cats As Carnivorous Predators

- Cats as Carnivorous Predators Throughout the course of evolution the cat’s ability to survive in the wild has become extremely dependent upon its hunting ability. In order for feral, or undomesticated, cats to survive on their own in the wild they have developed hereditary traits and instincts from their ancestors throughout time. Though these hereditary traits that they have inherited are helpful for undomesticated cats, they can often cause problems when domesticated house cats revert back to the ways of their ancestors, often influencing the ways that cats kept as pets are managed....   [tags: essays research papers]

The state of companion animals in this country is precarious at best; caught between scientists who subscribe to Descartes’s idea of ‘anima ex machina’ (unfeeling, a living example of biological processes without the status of ‘being’) and the more common phenomenon of people who pamper their pets in ways that most people would envy....   [tags: Animal Rights ]

Poe and Perversely

- One might ask the question what is perversely. Or even ask how can a person is perverse. So what is perversely, as defined in the Webster Dictionary Perversely means “1.) Turned away from what is right or good. 2.) Obstinate in opposing what is right, reasonable o accepted.” So perversely just basically means that someone does something that they know is wrong but they do it anyways. Everyone that is human is perverse at some point in their life. Which leads me to the second question a person might be asking, “How can a person be perverse?” Being perverse is basically just someone making a decision to perform an action that is considered wrong in the world’s eyes, but they continue to do tha...   [tags: Literary Themes]

Animal Testing Discussion

- The major ancient philosophers, Thomas Aquinas and Rene Descartes, argue that animals lack a moral status because they do not engage in rational thought, are not conscious, and do not behave morally (Wilson, 2001). However, contrary to their beliefs, non-human animals do display the characteristics that Aquinas and Descartes claim qualifies humans for a moral status. In this paper, I will argue that animals should have an equal moral status to that of humans. This is due to the lack of relevant differences between humans and animals in the areas of thinking rationally, having a conscience, and behaving morally....   [tags: Ethical Issues, Animal Ethics]
