Shocking Truth In The Meat Scandal

What if Americans found out what was really going on in the meat industry? Depending on the information provided, surely America and other countries would be devastated. Meat factories are unhealthy, dangerous, unfair to workers, and artificial. Reasoning behind factories being unhealthy would be; killing animals and not knowing what diseases are in the meat, which is how food poisoning originated. Factories are also highly dangerous because the workers get sick or injured all the time, and have no real protection from sharp knives or hooks. The factories also hire unskilled workers which could cause multiple accidents, and maybe even killing someone. Unfortunately, work insurance did not cover much back then. The reasoning behind factories being unfair to workers is because the workers are around dangerous, unhealthy environment everyday working long hours, and get paid so little an hour. Greedy factory owners are just that, greedy. Last but certainly not least, the meat factories are artificial because mystery products are put into the meat that should not be there. Right about now the Vegetarians are living the good life.

Dear Future Citizens

Dear future citizens, I would like to talk about seeming like traitors in the small picture, but there is so much more to it in the bigger picture. For years now woman have been treated like slaves, only good for cooking, and making babies, but we are not smart enough to work or be in politics, well I thought differently. So I started the National American Women Suffrage Association or known as the NAWSA. Together us women marched in a parade, which did not end well. Then we went to parties and talked all night about how the government denies us our civil rights. We showed up in political gatherings and watched the presidents speeches, then hung posters down in the middle of his speech. Now while we were protesting for women's rights, there was a war going on with Germany. Since we did not stop our protests, people viewed us as traitors to our country. They said we should helping with the war instead of bringing up other problems, but we were looking at a bigger picture and how women having equal rights as men would effect our country. Of course the men thought it would be dangerous, but i think they were just scared, you know how men and their pride are. The NAWSA believed with women working you could make more money, also we want to earn our money too. We believed that more people voting in all would make choosing the president more accurate for everyone, I mean he affects women too not just men. We also believed women could do what a man could do, maybe even better, and that we were not going to sit around pretending to be stupid just to keep our husbands happy, so whatever you think is right you better put your whole devotion behind it and do not let anyone change your mind. Sincerely, Alice Paul

Political Cartoon Meanings

This political cartoon is presenting that people feel the government can not tell them what to do with their business. One example is Rockefeller who is known for making a monopoly, which the government says is illegal. So in this cartoon Rockefeller is looking down at the government like they have no power against him.

Consequences Of War

The explosion of Maine started the war with Cuba, so its all Cuba fault. The war seems almost pointless because its extremely obvious whose going to win the war. You thought trash talking us would make us weak, but it only made us angry, have fun losing.

WWI Propaganda

To help pay for the war President Wilson used propaganda. By using propaganda he was able to have Americans save food for soldiers, and have them buy Liberty Bonds to help fund the war. He also used propaganda to get more men to join the u.s army.

WWI Causes

I believe alliances played the largest role in WWI because Princip assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Austria Hungary found our Serbian govt. had supplied Pricip with weapons. Austria Hungary blamed Serbia for Ferdinand's murder and declared war. Russia made a deal to protect Serbian Slavs. So the Russian army quickly began to prepare for war. Germany viewed this as aggression towards Austria Hungary, so Germany prepared for war also. Germany declared war on Russia and made the first move in the war.

The Roaring 20s Arts

James Mercer Langston Hughes was born February 1, 1902, in Joplin, Missouri. His parents divorced when he was a young child, and his father moved to Mexico. He was raised by his grandmother until he was thirteen, when he moved to Lincoln, Illinois, to live with his mother and her husband, before the family eventually settled in Cleveland, Ohio. It was in Lincoln that Hughes began writing poetry. After graduating from high school, he spent a year in Mexico followed by a year at Columbia University in New York City. During this time, he held odd jobs such as assistant cook, launderer, and busboy. He also travelled to Africa and Europe working as a seaman. In November 1924, he moved to Washington, D. C. Hughes’s first book of poetry, The Weary Blues, (Knopf, 1926) was published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1926. He finished his college education at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania three years later. In 1930 his first novel, Not Without Laughter, (Knopf, 1930) won the Harmon gold medal for literature.

The Roaring Twenties Agriculture/ Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart endures in the American consciousness as one of the world's most celebrated aviators. Amelia remains a symbol of the power and perseverance of American women, and the adventurous spirit so essential to the American persona. Learning to fly in California, Amelia took on aviation as a hobby. In 1922 Amelia bought her first plane called Kinner Aister. After a series of record-making flights, she became the first woman to make a solo transatlantic flight in 1932. That same year, Amelia developed flying clothes for the Ninety-Nines. Her first creation was a flying suit with loose trousers, a zipper top and big pockets. Vogue advertised it with a two-page photo spread. Then, she began designing her own line of clothes "for the woman who lives actively." She dressed according to the occasion whether it was flying or an elegant affair. She was most conscious of the image she projected. Several New York garment manufacturers made an exclusive Amelia Earhart line of clothes which were marketed in 30 cities, with one exclusive store in each city, such as Macy's in New York and Marshall Field's in Chicago.
