When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds."

What did the United States of America do in retaliation against Iran? They sent more troops to the area. They detained Iranian refugees. They froze all Iranian assets. They boycotted oil from the region.

[ad_1]

The correct answer should be
They froze all Iranian assets

They also introduced sanctions and put an embargo on all trade with Iran. They didn’t boycott oil since nobody would do that, and they didn’t send troops out of fear of what would happen to those people. No detaining of Iranians occurred either because it would be counter productive.

The image below represents the Sun on January 1 seen from North America. The letters represent the directions (east, south, and west). What time of day could it be?

[ad_1]

From the image, we are able to see that the sun is not directly overhead, which means that the time is not noon.

Using the directions provided, we can see that the sun has moved past the position in noon, remembering that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Therefore, we know that the time is past noon. Finally, the sunlight is still falling on the land, which means that it is not yet night time. Out of the given options, 3:35 PM is most likely to be correct.

What were three reasons why the colonists in America wanted their freedom from England and King George

[ad_1]

Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 04:18 AM

1) The colonists were annoyed with the fact that the king didn’t ask permission before he taxed them
2) The colonists were not happy when Britain told them that they could only buy tea from England (Boston Tea Party) – they did not appreciate England telling them who they could and couldn’t conduct business with
3) After French and Indian War, colonists were not happy with Proclamation of 1763 which told them that they could not settle west of Appalachian Mountains as they had just fought the war against the French for land- only to have their own monarch (King George) tell them they essentially fought for nothing

During the war for independence, which countries came to the assistance of america with their navies

[ad_1]

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.
