The tax served its purpose in supplementing revenue during the Civil War and World War I, but continued taking from Americans income in peacetime, allowing fewer dollars to be spent on goods and services. When the American government was in a deficit, it was harder to argue for the abolishment of the income tax, but now that Congress is looking at a government surplus for the first time in decades, the question is raised again: Do we have to have a progressive federal income tax?

A statistic that combats this concern is that 47% of the population in Ireland is between the ages of 15 and 44. An overlapping figure, also, is that Ireland has the youngest population in Europe, with over 40% under the age of 25 years. There should not be much of a big worry as far as the future exchange rate of the Irish Punt. In general it should stay relatively stable with some slight everyday volatility overall.

The house was in darkness except for a single light in the hall, it was a ploy. It was obvious to him that no experienced burglar would go for a place in complete darkness in case the owner was upstairs in bed. But a single, solitary light in an otherwise darkened house was usually a sign that the place was empty and that was what he wanted them to think. Twice he'd bee ...

Lenin hoped that once the proletariat won a revolution against tsarism, it would spark revolution over the whole world. After writing the book, Lenin earned the respect of Joseph Stalin, who now saw him as a man of extraordinary caliber. Many differences arose between the opinions of Lenin and other publishers of Iskra, and many of his comrades saw the dictatorial character emerge from within him. At the second meeting of the Russian Social Democrats in July, 1903, 43 members voted and named the Iskra group in charge of the party. Lenin then ...

Affirmative Action or Positive Discrimination Two people went to an interview for only one job position at the same company.

The second person attended a prestigious and highly academic university, had years of work experience in the field and, in the mind of the employer, had the potential to make a positive impact on the companys performance. Adoption of the social policy known as affirmative action turns a relatively easy question, into a no win situation.
