The first three words of the US Constitution are “We the People”. How well does the American Government of today reflect the will of the American people

In the spring and summer of 1776, Americans, angry and frustrated with an existing government, wrote these words. "Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." Our government is only as good or evil as "We the People" allow it to be. It is a good concept and I do believe that was why the states elected politicians...to take the views that the people of that state, wanted to relay to the federal government..so each state could choose laws and run their states according to the will of the people...I was raised with the idea that the federal government was in place to take care of the road system and our army to protect us...the people of the USA against other countries...and everyone who became a Legal American citizen, agreed to follow the Constitution of the USA....I guess I have it all wrong...now if you say something "wrong" by other's view...you can go to jail for longer time than some people get hurting and killing someone......It is okay to kill an unborn child for no other reason than you don't want it....BUT it is wrong to harm or hurt an enemy of the USA people. Sometimes governments ignore it's people and do whatever they want. Other times governments responds to the people and make changes accordingly. Depends on the administration
Ever wonder what the actual functions of a government are? To answer this question we must first…...

...We Are Endangered People of a Single Story: A Personal Abstract Kim Nguyen Psychology 424, Section 401 Dr. P. Guerin September 16, 2012 We Are Endangered People of a Single Story: A Personal Abstract Chimamanda Adichie, is a Nigerian novelist who spoke about how she found her authentic cultural voice from her story called, “ The Danger of a Single Story.” How can a single story be dangerous? In Chimamanda story she enlightens us with our vulnerability of negative impression dating back to our childhood years from stories in which we face ( TEDTalkDirector, 2009, 1:47-52). I strongly believe that Adichie story is a gateway to help us avoid racial stereotyping. She gave examples of some single story negativities she encountered attending school. One example Adichie mentioned is having a roommate who was astonished of her well-spoken English. The single story here, is her roommate did not know there can be any type of similarity with American vs. African ( TEDTalkDirector, 2009, 4:25-5:15). We as a whole have one story to identify a person or group because of the media, making us endangered people. Ramirez Boscan, an indigenous individual, states, “Most of the reporting from mainstream media on indigenous peoples is either inaccurate or biased as they do not understand our culture and traditions.” As a whole, we are endangered because we allow the media to control our mind (attitudes and behaviors) to believing and concluding the negatives aspect......

...organization to help children with maltreatment. The purpose of child protection services is to help protect children from physical abuse, neglect, emotional abuse, and sexual abuse, and to help families get the services for their children’s needs. Strength of the Public Health approach is its focus on primary prevention and education and its emphasis on the health not only of individuals but of families, communities, and society. The weakness on “Promotion of Children’s Rights and Prevention of Child Maltreatment” is the difficulty of using human rights approaches inside the U.S. and their strong focus on state responsibility. While laws and enforcement policies do need to change, even if the U.S. would recognize its own human rights violations we as a nation do not necessarily see the state as the primary means for ending child sexual abuse. A weakness in this article is the use of isolation of family violence from broader backgrounds of economic or cultural stress and the difficulty many family violence services continue to have in identifying and responding to child sexual abuse specifically. In conclusion, the emotional scars of both types of maltreatment are often deep and no child deserves to be maltreated. While most of us want nothing but the best for our children, child maltreatment are too common. While the words abuse and neglect are often used interchangeably, each type of maltreatment is distinct. Abuse is the intentional maltreatment of a child and can be......

...Since the dawn of the nation, the armed forces have included black Americans. As early as 1652, leaders of the Massachusetts Bay Colony mandated that all Indians and people of African descent residing in "settled" areas enlist in a local militia. Prince Duplex, Sr. was one of nearly 300 men of African descent to enlist in the Connecticut militia during the Revolutionary War, and Oscar Marion, a slave on the South Carolina plantation of war hero General Francis Marion, fought side by side with his master, also serving as "personal assistant, bodyguard, sous-chef, bugler, courier, confidant, and oarsman." When the Medal of Honor—the nation's highest award for military valor—was established in 1861, African Americans were not excluded. In time, however, conferral of the award began to mirror the status of black Americans in general, embodying a tumultuous history that has not always been so honorable. The origins of the award lie with the Civil War. On 21 December 1861—exactly a year and a day after the secession of South Carolina—President Abraham Lincoln signed Senate Bill 82 into law. The measure, created to honor "non-commissioned officers and privates as shall most distinguish themselves by their gallantry in action, and other soldier-like qualities," was at first an honor exclusively for Navy sailors, but by the following year was expanded to include the Army. Though originally intended to cover only the length of the Civil War, the Medal of Honor was made a permanent......

... We Can But Should We? Dara Shalom Chamberlain College of Nursing NR361-65561: Information Systems in Healthcare March 2013 We Can But Should We? “As healthcare embraces technology to improve patient outcomes, streamline operations, and lower costs, the technologies with the most impact are the ones that make things simpler” (Why and How). Various companies are trying to simplify the process of obtaining essential patient information with the use of quick response, or QR codes. These codes are placed on stickers, bracelets, and cards for wallets. When paramedics scan the QR code, they gain access to the patient’s health profile, which contains basic personal information, allergies, medications, and emergency contacts. With instant access to this vital information, medical errors are reduced, and the time that they would otherwise spend obtaining this information is cut. Some people believe that this is a wonderful advancement, and it “could benefit so many folks” (Davis), while others are concerned and skeptical about this new technology. Benefits One advantage of utilizing QR codes in emergency response situations is the shortened time spent obtaining vital patient health information. By cutting down time, paramedics are able to make treatment decisions more quickly. “Every second counts during medical emergencies, and quick access to medical information can be the difference between life and death” (Rich). Immediate access to the individuals medical......

Perhaps they went through an experience which made them want to improve the process that they went through. Like most people Rose Bailey, the interviewee, started working as a mentor at UFF (United for Families) and as a trainer for MAPP (Model Approach to Partnership in Parenting) at Hibiscus House because of past events. Rose decided to work for UFF and Hibiscus after going through the process of being a foster parent. Rose said “When I was a foster parent, there wasn’t another peer out there to support me. Thus the process of being a foster parent was stressful, without knowing anyone going through the same thing.” Therefore, she wanted to help people who felt the way she did when she had no support. She wanted to help the foster program to flourish. Rose stated “I wanted the opportunity to teach about love for children, not just loving children but how, when things got tough, to stay committed.” Since Rose Bailey was a foster parent for twenty three years and with her degree in psychology with a concentration in the social aspects, UFF felt she was qualified for the job as a Treasure Coast foster parent mentor. Rose is required to be available 24/7 for her clients for whenever they needed her. She is on call all the time. She supports new and existing foster parents. For new foster parents, Rose...

We Are Our Own People

...WRTG 101S Definition Essay We Are Our Own People I grew up in an urban city in Southern California where Caucasians were the minorities and a person who did not speak Spanish was often made fun of. The barrios, or neighborhoods, were home to thousands of Mexican immigrants who’d come to the United Sates in hopes of better lives for their children. The chavalitos, or children, of these people were first generation American and were Chicanos, that is, American children born of full-blooded Mexican parents. I always considered myself a Chicana; I never called myself Mexican or American. To me, this was normal because I had never been around people who were different. When I left my hometown, I realized that most people outside of the Mexican-American community did not fully understand what it meant to be a Chicano or had no idea what the word meant. The word Chicano traces back to the pre-Columbian era, when Mexico was still Meshico. It stems from Meshicano, an ancient Nahuatl word used by the Aztecs meaning “native.” The natives referred to themselves as Meshicanos, and even Shicanos, thus giving birth to the term “Chicano”. The term made its appearance in America, and was used to identify children born on American soil of Mexican descent. Our forefathers came to America seeking better lives and new opportunities for their children. With them, they brought their culture: music, food, customs and traditions. The combination of this with mainstream...

...he was running team B. We had a meeting about getting more work to do. My boss hired 3 more people for now. He put me in charge of who was getting the workers and giving out the work load. This is what I said I will take one new hire , you take can take two. Then we will split the work load. My co worker said no that’s not fair. Then ran to the boss telling him I was putting the entire work load on him. I was not clear to him about what I was saying. I was not giving him more work; the work load was going to be 50 to 50, with or without the extra help. 6. How could this misunderstanding have been avoided? Should have said this is the work load, we are getting new workers I will take one and you will have two, and we will still have the same work load. 1. Who was the Sender? Hotel guest 2.

... For our purposes, salient events are events that we consciously notice. They might be novel in some way, either by being different and new, or by being exciting. You can see this is true if you consider that a year backpacking abroad will seem in retrospect to have been a whole lifetime. So many new and exciting things happened during that year, that when your brain recreates the experience it feels subjectively “longer” than if you sat in a cubical filling out TPS reports the whole time. When you’re a kid, time crawls by because every day you’re experiencing new and exciting things. As you age, you settle into routine and soon nothing much is new or exciting, and time is flying by. When we are bored, we become aware of each passing second. Each agonizing moment becomes a salient event because we’re aware of them as they pass, and so time passes in a trickle. Later that day we sink four hours into World of Warcraft without a second thought. 3. To be a new and better person means to have new and better experiences—events that shape who you are, and color your perception. Each new experience can potentially be the event horizon of being “young and dumb.” On one side of the horizon you see your young self, and on this side you find your new, better self. The key ingredient to growth and the perception of a full and meaningful life is those salient events. Don’t sink into routine; seek out new ideas and new people, and new experiences. The last time I clearly......

...ese drives might be transformed to a desire to organize children’s activities or to clean up the local riverfront. In regression we return to earlier, safer stages of our lives. This defense mechanism is most easily seen in children. Rationalization is a mechanism involving post hoc (after the fact) logical explanations for behaviors that were actually driven by internal unconscious motives. Psychoanalysis well recognizes that the explanations we give for our behavior are not necessarily even remotely related to the true causes. Freud explored the unconscious in exquisite detail, but he was relatively unconcerned with possible cultural variations. Mechanical medical models saw people as influenced by internal fluids. Psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud’s approach to understanding human behavior; also, Freud’s psychotherapeutic techniques Psychoanalytic approaches to personality are generally difficult to evaluate as scientific theories. They often are not disconfirm able because there is always another postulated hidden mechanism ready to explain any observations. Controlled studies are rarely employed. Psychosurgery: operating on the brain in an attempt to repair personality problems—has a long and horrific history. In the 1940s, the prefrontal lobotomy was the technique of choice. The surgeons would drill holes into the skull, insert a dull knife, and slice the brain lobes until the patient (who was under only local anesthesia) seemed totally disoriented. The purpose of......

Many People Believe We Are the Products of Our Environment. What Influenced You to Be the Person You Are Today?

...Everything around us makes us the way we are. The tiniest thing can affect our personalities. Generally speaking, we are like clay figures that can be easily shaped by the lightest touch. However, there are millions of factors that made me the person I am today. Some losses, coupled with wins, taught me that life needs to go down so it can go up one day. While there are many things that made me the way I am today, my parents, love and loss are the biggest factors that influenced me. My parents weren’t tough on me, even though back then I didn’t think so. Now, when I look back, I see how much they trusted me and prayed for me to make the right decisions. Despite their worries, I proved myself as a responsible person. Because my parents were easy on me I developed a good judgement regarding issues that appeared in my way. I came from a small country in Eastern Europe, Latvia. Latvians are not the most warmed hearted people on this planet, we differ a lot from the American culture. There were never a lot of emotions involved in my family, in fact I don’t remember using “I love you” that much, but I never doubted my parents love for me. Today I’m still very reserved with saying out loud my feelings, but I really want to change myself for my own children one day. I am getting better and since I am so far from my parents, we actually have started to say that to each other more. Few years before I left to the United States two close people to me died, my father and grandmother.......

“We Were the People Who Were Not in the Papers. We Lived in the Blank White Spaces at the Edges of Print…We Lived in the Gaps Between the Stories.” Discuss the Writers’ Exploration of Female Passivity.

...“We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print…We lived in the gaps between the stories.” Discuss the writers’ exploration of female passivity. William Shakespeare, Margaret Atwood and Alfred Tennyson all present female passivity as a deep-rooted, normalised concept that is engrained into the framework of relationships, society and government. Whilst this is seen to remain from the 1600s all the way to the 1980s, there are subtle differences in the portrayal of, attempted reasoning behind and methods used to enforce this passivity, highlighted through analysis of language, structure and context. The writers symbolically use setting to explore links between different aspects of female passivity. Tennyson links public and private spaces and their promotion of female passivity to illustrate societal as well as psychological and domestic examples of passivity. In Mariana, the “rusted” and “crusted” atmosphere of decay is representative of Mariana’s psychological deterioration and the stagnant “blacken’d waters” and “moated grange” act as an obstruction to her integration with the outside patriarchal world. This reflects the wider Victorian attitude regarding the home as “the centre of virtue and the proper life for women” and brings to light the impact that passivity in the greater context of society has on the role she plays in her private relationship. This idea of external influences is echoed much less......

Sometimes Our View of People Changed When We Know New Information About He

...old, but looks a bit old. We seldom talked with him because he rarely laughed and we gave him a nickname "what things" (a homonym of his name in Chinese). Because I worked on the same floor with him, I met him often. He always looked lonely and unhappy. Maybe because he was lonely, he often worked overtime. He never went out with us or walked with any colleagues. We thought he deserves the loneliness because he left his hometown and came to work in China. But one day, there was an incident that changed my view on "what things". It was at noon, I was going out to eat with colleagues and we met him in the elevator. Because it was lunch time, the elevator was overcrowded as usual. When the elevator stopped at the main floor, there were a lot of people waiting outside to go up. As we hurried out of the door, I saw “what things” was standing by the door with his finger pressing on the button. When all the people went out, he still remained the same posture. I thought he was going to the garage downstairs but then I discovered that the elevator was ready to rise. I was so curious that I looked what in the end he wanted to do. “Does he forget something; ready to return to the office? What an idiot.” I talked to myself. I saw that he waited until the last person went into the elevator. Then, "what things" loosed his finger and dragged out of the elevator with his tired and motionless face. Suddenly, my colleagues and I looked at each other. Since then we call him Satoshi....
