Which was not a reason Johnson used when vetoing the extension of the Freedmen's Bureau and the Civil Rights Bill of 1866? Johnson said the measures "favored" blacks over whites and was outside the bounds of the Constitution in doing so. Johnson said the measures were invalid because Southern states weren't represented in Congress during the vote. Johnson said providing social services for indigents via the Freedman's Bureau was outside the powers delineated in the Constitution. Johnson said the rights and guarantees of the Emancipation Proclamation were sufficient to protect blacks civil rights and a new bill was unnecessary.

Read the excerpt from Chapter 5 of Wheels of Change. These traits led commentators to worry that the differences between the sexes were being blurred, a fear that was reinforced as the four newest states—Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Idaho—granted women the right to vote in the 1890s. Would the bicycle help bring about a new kind of equality between men and women? Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her colleagues certainly hoped so. At any rate, the image of a female cyclist quickly became associated with efforts to win more rights for women. What conclusion does Macy draw in this synthesis of ideas? Women were granted the right to vote in four states as a direct result of the bicycle’s invention. Female cyclists were quickly becoming associated with efforts to win more rights for women. Stanton and her colleagues hoped women cyclists would join their fight for women’s rights. Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Idaho were home to the highest percentage of women cyclists.

[ad_1]

Female cyclists were quickly becoming associated with efforts to win more rights for women.

At the end of the passage, usually where a conclusion is stated, it says that the image of a female cyclist was becoming a symbol for women’s rights. The passage does not tell the reader anything about the percentage of women cyclists. While it does tell the reader about women being granted the right to voted, the connection between that and the bicycle is that it blurs the differences between the sexes. Both men and women were riding bicycles and they were both voting. There is also nothing in the passage about women cyclists as a group joining or not joining the women’s rights movement.

Read the excerpt from President Eisenhower’s State of the Union address on February 2, 1953. A cardinal ideal in this heritage we cherish is the equality of rights of all citizens of every race and color and creed. We know that discrimination against minorities persists despite our allegiance to this ideal. Such discrimination—confined to no one section of the Nation—is but the outward testimony to the persistence of distrust and of fear in the hearts of men. This fact makes all the more vital the fighting of these wrongs by each individual, in every station of life, in his every deed . . . I propose to use whatever authority exists in the office of the President to end segregation in the District of Columbia, including the Federal Government, and any segregation in the Armed Forces. What is the president’s purpose for including these details? to inform his listeners about laws in the District of Columbia to inform his listeners about the work of the US military to persuade his listeners of the importance of equal rights to persuade his listeners to vote for him for president

[ad_1]

to persuade his listeners of the importance of equal rights

The excerpt begins with the statement about cherishing equal rights of all citizens. It then talks about how discrimination is still occurring. He then pledges to end segregation in all places where he has the power to do so: Washington D.C., Federal Government, and the Armed Forces. The excerpt does not include and laws, work the military has done, or calls for presidential votes.

The Electoral College representative casts his vote for president and vice president

[ad_1]

1- The correct answer is B, as one result of the Great Society was that the lives of many underprivileged Americans improved.

The Great Society was a set of US national reform programs announced by President Lyndon B. Johnson for the first time in a speech at Ohio University on May 7, 1964 and more fully illustrated on May 22, 1964 at the University of Michigan. These reform programs were subsequently presented to the Congress of the United States and largely approved during the 1960s, thanks to the consent of its supporters of the Democratic Party.

Two main goals of social reforms were the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. During this period new large spending programs were launched in the fields of education, medical care, urban problems and transport. Johnson’s “Great Society” was linked, in its objectives and policies, to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal program.

Some proposals of the Great Society resumed initiatives contained in the New Frontier program, interrupted by the tragic death of President John F. Kennedy. Johnson’s success in promoting and endorsing his reforms depended on his considerable congressional political influence, his persuasion, and the favorable historical circumstances resulting from the 1964 presidential elections, which allowed the Democratic Party to dominate Congress and to elect the House of Representatives with the largest number of exponents of the liberal current since 1938.

The evolution of the Vietnam war and the massive involvement of the American military machine in the conflict, however, partly undermined the success of the “Great Society” program. Growing, huge expenditures for the continuation of the war made more difficult to finance the reform programs. Representatives of the Democratic Party against the war in Vietnam complained that military spending decisively stifled the Great Society program. On the whole, however, despite growing political and economic difficulties, which forced the administration to eliminate or reduce the financing of some projects, President Johnson managed to activate a series of programs of great importance, including Medicare, Medicaid, the Older Americans Act and the federal education funding, which are still active.

2- The correct answer is C, as the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was necessary because the previous existing American immigration policies were discriminatory.

On October 3, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the law into effect, saying: “The [old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle according to which the valuation and reward of each man should be established on the basis of his merits as a man. It has been anti-American in the highest sense, because it has been unfaithful to the faith that led thousands to these shores, even before we were a country. ”

Answer:

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.

Answer:    Joshua is correct

Explanation:  Animals, however well preserved and bred in conditions that are not in nature, that is, not in their natural habitat, animals still retain the animal instinct. Thus, young animals in the wild can be met daily, except for members of their species, and members of all other species, including predators, as well as humans. This means that in the natural environment, young animals can find themselves in a variety of dangers on a daily basis, but not only that. In this way young animals develop their ability to survive, escape from predators, manage, and develop their hunting skills, etc. All this is essential for socialization because according to all these developed skills and abilities their socialization depends. To deny any of the conditions prevailing in the wild means to deny the development of any skill or instinct, to deny proper socialization.

You and your sibling, whose name is ______    , go to your favorite store called     Walmart.   . There, ______.    finds a toy to buy, called a     nerf gun    . He really wants this toy. The toy is labeled $3.99, and so he brings it to the cashier. The cashier tells your sibling, “That will be $4.19.” Your sibling removes four dollar bills from a pocket and then, finding no more money, starts to cry. He turns to you and begins asking questions as you walk away from the counter.

“Why was the label wrong? It said $3.99!”

You respond, “It rang up as $4.19 because of     taxes    . This is     extra money business have to charge because the government saves the money in a piggy bank like we do, just in case something brakes, they can take money out of the bank to fix it. Things like roads and buildings.    . We pay other types of     taxes     to the government such as     federal state and local taxes    

“Why do we pay them? It seems so unfair! Now I can’t have my toy!”

You respond, “We pay them because     it’s the law    Governments at each level provide us with different things such as roads, food for us to but It helps the economy because where would the government get their money, so they can buy things for us to buy

“It doesn’t help me. I shouldn’t have to pay. I’m just a kid.”

You respond, “Even kids benefit. One specific example is getting free vaccines. A way that our family benefits is how we get to pay only less after being hospitalized. A way that our community benefits is how we get new school buildings.

“How was I supposed to know all this? I don’t have 19 cents. What do I do now?”

You respond, “What you should do is create your own budget. A budget how you plan to spend your money. It lists all your income and expenses. When you subtract expenses from income

. what is left can be spent how you please , on things you don’t really need or it could be an emergency fund. The reason having a budget is bad is because you can’t spend all of your money that you would like to.  

“Will my budget be anything like the government’s budget?”

You respond, “They have similarities and differences. Some similarities include paying for transportation. Some differences include  the governments highest priority is social security, while personal budgets do not include that.

HELP PLEASE ASAP! 1. War breaks out near Country A and B, limiting trade with nearby nations. Country A has a single resource economy and Country B has a diversified economy. Which country is more at risk for economic problems? Country A is more at risk because it has many types of products that it must find new trade partners to buy. Country A is more at risk because it has fewer types of goods to attract new trade partners. Country B is more at risk because it has fewer types of goods to attract new trade partners. Country B is more at risk because it does not have natural resources. 2. Which of the following best describes a disadvantage of a representative democracy compared to a direct democracy? Elections are unnecessary because birth and political party determine the officials. Elected officials may not always act in the best interests of those they represent. People are able to vote directly on issues that they care about. Decision-making is often slower because more people are involved in making the decisions. 3. Which statement about officials found in various forms of government is least accurate? A confederation would likely have several states with powerful state senators. A parliamentary government would likely have a prime minister elected by the legislature. A unitary government would likely have several states with powerful state senators. A federation would likely have a president elected by the people.

[ad_1]

Answer:

1- Country A is more at risk because it has fewer types of goods to attract new trade partners.

2- A disadvantage of a representative democracy compared to a direct democracy is that elected officials may not always act in the best interests of those they represent.

3- The least accurate statement is the one that says that a unitary government would likely have several states with powerful state senators.

Explanation:

1- If war breaks out near Country A and Country B, and Country A has a single resource economy while Country B has a diversified economy, Country A would be more at risk because as it only produces one resource, it would be more difficult for it to find new markets where to sell its production.

2- Representative democracy is often presented as the most efficient form of democracy possible in mass societies, arguing that it allows an effective decision by a sufficiently small number of people in the name of the greatest number. The efficiency of the service can be judged based on the metrics of profitability and efficiency over time. Representatives who vote on behalf of the people allow a monetary benefit, since the use of polling stations, vote counters, etc. is reduced. The government is generally responsible for paying the salaries of the representatives and would have to cover the substantial cost of a democracy. Representative democracy has been conceptually associated with historically instantiated by the political system known as “representative government,” which was born in the eighteenth century with the French and American revolutions. It is a system in which people choose their legislators (representatives), who are then responsible to them for their activity within the government.

3- A unitary government is a form of government where power is concentrated and there is a single center of power that extends its action throughout the territory of the respective nation through its agents and local authorities, delegates of that same central power. A unitary government is the opposite of a federal government.

Who won the electoral vote of 1824? (No one, right?)

[ad_1]

In 1820 the right to vote was extended but not to women, freed African Americans, nor Native Americans. The right to vote was granted to white men who did not own property but if they did vote, they were required to pay a poll tax, as well as show signs of literacy, and/or pass a religious exam in certain locations.

In the election of 1825, Andrew Jackson received the popular vote, with Adams finishing second. Speaker of the House Henry Clay was excluded from the voting (who also ran for election) because he finished in out of the top 3, however he was close with Adams because they shared a similar national agenda. When each state delegation voted, Adams received the majority of the votes compared to Andrew Jackson, and was elected president. Some including Jackson believe that Clay secretly helped Adams win, given that Jackson won the popular vote but was defeated due to his failure of winning the House of Representatives vote, whom Clay was the leader of and close accomplice of Adams.

  “Life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness.” That is the American Dream.  In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, we read about the 1920’s and the characters’
pursuit of the American Dream. This novel is an American classic set in the
roaring twenties. The novel is narrated by a young man by the name of Nick Caraway,
who is also Daisy’s cousin. As we read the novel, we learn about Gatsby and the
other characters as they try to strive for and pursue the American Dream. In
the novel, F. Scott Fitzgerald illustrates the American Dream, the life of the people
who pursue it, and the impact of that pursuit all through his portrayal of Jay
Gatsby’s life and the people who surround him.

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel depicts the American Dream through the
many characters as they are described by the novel’s narrator, Nick. “It
passed, and he began to talk excitedly to Daisy, denying everything, defending
his name against accusations that had not been made. But with every word she
was drawing further and further into herself, so he gave that up and only the
dead dream fought on as the afternoon slipped away, trying to touch what was no
longer tangible, struggling unhappily, undespairingly, toward that lost voice
across the room” (144). In this quote, we get insight into how Tom, Daisy’s
husband, is unfaithful and unhappy in his marriage and yet is trying to defend
his doings just so Daisy won’t leave him. Daisy knows she’s being cheated on by
her husband, but she continues being with him even if she’s unhappy and she
knows it. Gatsby is also pursuing a dream that never came true, as told in the
novel. “I thought of Gatsby’s wonder when he first picked out the green light
at the end of Daisy’s dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his
dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it” (180).
His dream is being with Daisy, but it was an impossible one. As Nick put it,
Gatsby’s dream seemed so possible and simple for him, for from the perception
of others, it is a dream that is way too far for his reach.

 Although all the characters
seek the pursuit of the American Dream, they don’t all achieve what they are
striving for. Even the characters that already have the life of the American
Dream are not happy with it. In the novel, we read about the life of the
characters of Tom and his wife Daisy. “Her husband, among various physical accomplishments,
had been one of the most powerful ends that ever played football at New Haven—a
national figure in a way, one of those men who reach such an acute limited
excellence at twenty-one that everything afterward savors of anti-climax. His
family were enormously wealthy—even in college his freedom with money was a
matter for reproach.” (8) They have everything that they need and want: wealth,
riches, fame and everything everyone else wishes for.  But they are very unhappy in their relationship
as Daisy loves another man– Gatsby, and Tom is constantly cheating on Daisy
with another mistress. Daisy’s dream is not complete with just wealth or fame,
but it is also about maintaining a high status. Daisy tries to maintain her
good reputation by staying with her husband, Tom, despite his infidelity.  Although Tom is unfaithful with Daisy, he
still loves her and does his best to stay with her. Their pursuit of the
American Dream effects Gatsby because he is unable to pursue his dream of being
with Daisy.

Another character who also has the American Dream is Jay Gatsby.
Gatsby is portrayed as this character who is wealthy and very famous. He has a
great fortune yet that is still not enough for him. “His heart beat fast and
faster as Daisy’s white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed
this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath,
his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening
for moment longer to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he
kissed her. As his lips touch blossomed for him like a flower and the
incarnation was complete” (134). Gatsby’s dream is to ultimately be with the
woman he loves, Daisy.  However, he is
unable to pursue this dream because he does not have a respectable position or
reputation. When the others learn that Gatsby became wealthy through criminal
ways, it changes their view of him and Daisy does not want to ruin her
reputation by being with such a flawed man.
