Have you ever thought about where your food comes from? How it was processed or harvested? Well what about the workers, the people that work long hours in cramped factories. It seems the United states wants the cheapest foods and cheapest labor. We want the best for the least amount of money. We went to extremes including paying immigrants to work for us. They were cheap labor, big companies hired them over american citizens, now they are being arrested by the government and blamed them even though it was the major companies employing them and bringing them across the border them. It's not a bad thing that companies employ foreign workers but when they put the local people out of work and throw them into a community of poverty that doesn't help the city. another option for these large factories wold be machines and or more local people, it would also help if the companies raised the workers pay so they can establish a vital income and help with local economy.


Dear future Americans,

My name is Alice Paul and I am the head of the National Woman's party (NWP). I am here to tell you about hope, frustration, and believing in yourself. As an avid believer in the right for woman to vote I have been through a lot in wanting equal rights. I put a lot of effort and even risking my life in wanting that right, I am a firm believer that there is never going to be a new world if women weren't a part of it. The United states said that we were a democracy, but over 20 million woman were denied the right to vote, is it because we are woman? Because we don't have the "head" for politics? these questions may never be answered, but I wanted to know just how far I had to push to get it out there, to get the press to look into it , and to get hope that someday my children will all have equal voting rights. I went to great lengths to get my situation out there. We held parades and even stood outside the White House through extreme conditions, some of us even went to the work houses. In the end we came out stronger than ever and now I can sleep easy knowing I got what I went after for. Believe that you can do anything.

Sincerely - Alice Paul

What a funny little goverment

The meaning of this cartoon is that Rockefeller is making fun of the government because they have any real power in the big companies. An example of this would be everything surrounding the capital building in factory based including all of the drums of crude oil and the factories in the background puffing out smoke into the air. Another reason would be that Rockefeller is holding the white house which would symbolize that he has all the power in the palm of his hand. This can connect to the real world today by saying Walmart companies are one of the largest businesses in the United States and they hold a lot of power in the supermarket industry.


The Queen Liliuokalani finally surrenders after great battle in palace grounds. On january 17 1893 United States marines stormed the ruler palace with guns armed, they watched the queen stand on a high balcony and curse the united states. we interviewed a marine who was on site "she was incredibly angry and with this her words with jumbles and slurred , i cannot tell you what she said but i can assure you that you don't want to know" It has been said that when she was done with her rant that hawaiian peoples erupted from every window and door of the palace. they were armed with anything the could find, a large stick to a handmade gun, but still they were no match for the sheer numbers of the marines. They held there place for more than 3 hours. " there were so many people dead but even still so many people alive" said another marine. When the hawaiian people finally surrendered the Queen was taken into American custody.

Due to new enemy chemical advancements our trenches have been pushed back the cause of this is poisonous gas. When this gas bomb is thrown into the trenches a green-yellow mist envelops everything. the gas enters the body quickly once it has been breathed in it takes lethal effects which always leads to death. The Americans have come up with a solution though, Gas masks. These will protect soldiers in the new chemical warfare,they can easily be put on and they have already saved an incredible amount of lives on the front lines.
