- capital punishment (new)
The death penalty, also known as capital punishment, has been abolished in most modern first world societies, but not all. There is much debate as to whether it is right for countries like the United States to continue to use this type of justice, and if it is an efficient way to fight crime. However, there are many arguments as to why there is no place for the death penalty in a civilized society and that it is not an effective way of stopping crime. A justice system which i...
My fellow Citizens, we have gathered today to speak of what we might regard to as the contractual chain that binds this country together: Money. Money was addressed in about three amendments and in about 65-75% of the articles under the United States Constitution, the basis sent by our founding fathers to the Citizens of the US. As a result, the United States is the Global Superpower of the World, economically and socially. But over the lifespan of this powerful factory, certain adjustments have...

Movies have always been seen for entertainment purposes but over the past few decades, movies have been used to bring certain issues to light. Topics such as vigilantes, gang violence, and racism are all viewed in films to inform the public and to be dealt with. Not everyone has experienced these things themselves so they are oblivious to it. This can also be a bad thing because some people and children might see movies as a teaching experience and copy the bad things portrayed. One movie that ...

A couple decades ago, when abortion was illegal, thousands of women died because they did not want to bear an infant and attempted to terminate the child's life by themselves or with an unprofessional approach. After 1973's Supreme Court decision, which allowed women to have the choice to abortion, thousands of women were saved. Abortion can save thousands of lives of women and thus, should remain legal in the United States.
Imagine you have a balance beam. On one side you have the physical l...

- marijuana legalization
In my opinion marijuana should be legalized for medicinal purposes only. Marijuana has been proven to far outweigh the pain relieving benefits of other narcotics such as Oxicodone, Percocet, and Morphine. Evidence supports marijuana being used for medicinal use as far back as 2,737 BC. Marijuana is also an immediate pain relief. People who are in excruciating pain do not enjoy waiting an hour or more for their pain to be relieved by narcotic pain relievers. Medical marijuana also has short term ...

- War on drugs
The question of whether or not to legalize certain drugs has been debated for decades. Although opponents have thus far been successful in preventing this, there are nonetheless a substantial number of people who believe that legalization should be given a chance. Their arguments range from the seeming ineffectiveness of current drug laws to the simple premise that the government has no right to prohibit its citizens from using drugs if they choose to do so.

Law Enforcement in the 1960s began to call for the establishment of dedicated units that could react competently to high risk procedures after several highly publicized hostage and sniper situations. The incident that inspired the SWAT concept occurred in August of 1966. A disturbed man climbed to the top of the 32-story clock tower at the University of Texas in Austin. For 96 minutes he erratically shot 46 people, killing 15 of them, until two police officers got to the top o...

- Capital Punishment
Execution of criminals and political opponents has been used by nearly all societies—both to punish crime and to suppress political dissent. In most places that practice capital punishment it is reserved for murder, espionage, treason, or as part of military justice. In some countries sexual crimes, such as rape, adultery, incest and sodomy, carry the death penalty, as do religious crimes such as apostasy in Islamic nations (the formal renunciation of the State religion). In many countries that ...

At a hearing on Capitol Hill in May, James Moroney, the publisher of the Dallas Morning News, told Congress about negotiations he’d just had with the online retailer Amazon. The idea was to license his newspaper’s content to the Kindle, Amazon’s new electronic reader. “They want seventy per cent of the subscription revenue,” Moroney testified. “I get thirty per cent, they get seventy per cent. On top of that, they have said we get the right to republish your intellectual property to any portabl...
