Think Before You Eat

You know when deciding what to eat we should consider who picks, processes, and transports the products. If you don't you could be eating food that is filled with germs! An example would be if a factory slaughters pigs and one of the pigs are infectious then they slaughter another pig which is health and clean with the same utensils as the pig with the infectious meat then it could be getting in the good meat witch could be making its way to your table. An another example would be if your meat is not packaged well and it was put in the back of a very dirty semi or a delivery truck and germ get into your un packaged meat. This is why you should think where your food came from before you eat it.

Did you know that back in the gilded aged that they didn't even worry where their food came from! Non of them even worried if their food was rotten or if it had food poising all they cared about is if they had food to eat after their hard day of work. Even the food produced were in on this terrible act if there was infectious meat they would put it up for sale in the grocery stores as special meat but made people pay more for worse meat then they could get for a cheaper price for better deal, What terrible people. Also in the factory's they would use the same utensils all day long slaughtering cows and pigs even if the were infectious meat or not which could make the non infected meat get infected because of the dirty utensils they use. Just think how dirty the food would have been back during the gilied age.

Dear Future Citizens of America,

Dear Future Citizens of America,

Did you know that women fought for women's right to vote for almost 100 years! That is longer then most peoples live span. Some acts of courage we did were marching through the streets in a parade and stood outside the white house with signs and flags trying to try and encourage the courts to pass the law for women to have the right to vote. One of the signs said " Have you forgotten your sympathy with the poor Germans because they were not self-governed? 20,000,000 American women are not self -governed, take the beam out of your own eye." We hoped that if we took the president words and put in on a sign that he would brake and pass the law.

We were wrong. We were raided one day by the police when we were standing outside the white house protesting, we did nothing wrong. This was one of the most horrible thing that had ever happened to e first it was the group of women that were arrested before us that also did nothing now it is us. At first I was rejecting to eat put later one day they took me into a room tied me to a chair plugged my nose until I opened my mouth and when I opened my mouth they put a tube down my throat and forced feed me with rotten eggs then they would take the tube out of my throat and I would throw up. My throat was sore after all of this force feeding it happen every day once a day till my time was up. We all got out of prison and the law went to court and you'll never guess what happened next. It was passed for women's right to vote the 19 amendment was passed on Aug. 18, 1920.

Sincerly, Alice Paul

We Own This Government

This political cartoon represents capitalism. The reason it represents capitalism is because Rockefeller is an oil company and it looks like in the picture that the owner of the company is holding the white house in his hand and there is money coming out of the bottom and there is oil cans all over in the background and also oil factory's under his neck and chin. The reason it represents capitalism is because it looks like they can run the government even thought they don't listening to any of there expectations.
