The incarcerated life of a prisoner is usually a reoccurring cycle; commit a crime, go to prison, get released. Commit another crime, go to prison yet again, and get released once more. For many criminals, this is the cycle that will define who they are. Is it their fault? Not entirely. The prison system is set up exclusively as a form of punishment, which it should be for the most part, but lacks in guidance. However, a large number of criminals who get locked up spend their days reflecting on ...
A Deeper Look at Globalization
Itís a word we hear almost everyday while watching the news, reading the paper, or even in our day-to-day conversations. It is associated with both good and bad, and for better or worse, we are inevitably involved in its transformations. Globalization has been a popular discussion and has been intensively discussed even though it is a relatively recent idea. Given its sudden emergence, it can be a term that isnít quite understood and there are people who are compl...

- Why two different Chambers?
I believe we have two different chambers for many reasons. There are two that I think is important or at least they should be important. Those reasons are peace and equality. Peace should be one of them because it will cut back on a lot of debates and arguing amongst themselves. Two different people, two different houses you get two different sides and hearings. I don\'t think anyone can make a right decision with so much drama going on. Secondly, equality should be another. Say for instance, th...
- Why we have a House and a Senate
Why do we have two chambers in Congress, the House and Senate? Since members of both are elected by, and represent the people, wouldn\'t the lawmaking process be more efficient if bills were considered by only one body?
While it may appear clumsy and often overly time-consuming, the two-chamber or "bicameral" setup of Congress works today exactly the way a majority of the Founding Fathers envisioned in 1787. Clearly expressed in the Constitution is the Founders\' belief that power should be sha...
Introduction and Literature Review
China and Sudan have a historical trading partnership dating back to the early 1950s, while the oil partnership, one of the most important aspects of the bilateral relations, was begun in the 1990s amid war and tumult.

The War on Terror has been a topic of debate since 2001. After the attack on the World Trade Centers, America embarked on a mission to protect our freedom and protect our Nation. There is more than just one side to this story, as is all stories. To America, the war is to ensure we are physically safe from terrorist attacks. To who we are fighting, it can be called a holy war.
This is a quote from a speech given by George W. Bush addressing the war, ...
- Judicial Bias Between White and Blue Collar Punishment
There are many ways punishment is differentiated between the rich and poor, pointing out that white collar crimes including theft involving millions of dollars often get far lighter sentences than blue collar crimes. Economically disadvantaged people are punished worse for their crimes than the wealthier members of society. Criminals often receive preferential treatment and lighter sentences than blue collar criminals. There are many reasons this happens mainly due to their influence and high pa...

With millions of illegal immigrants already in the United States and at least half a million being able to gain access into the country annually, it is no doubt that they have an extensive effect on the country. It has been argued that illegal immigrants put a strain on the economy of the country and can be a social nuisance. They also have a major influence on the various decisions and policies that are made in the country. Whether the net effect of illegal immigration is positive or ...
