My life is terrible. Every time I fall for someone, I get hurt. I just dont understand what I am doing wrong. I do everything I can possibly think of. With my last girlfriend, Susan, I bought here flowers, candy, dinner, expensive jewelry, I take her to movies - my treat, I write her love poems from my heart, letters when Im not with her, I sing to her, I play slow songs for her, and I spend every waking moment with her.

Whats Wrong - 876 words
What is wrong with American schools? Thats the million Dollar Question, or should I say the Multi-Billion Dollar Question. In the past, Americas solution to our abysmal public school situation has been to throw money at the problem. But that obviously isnt working. American students are consistently scoring less on standardized tests than other nations children. Personally, I believe the problems are more complex than a simple budget problem. The truth is, American culture is to blame. For some reason, American students are not raised with the desire for academic success that occurs in other countries. In Japan, students often commit suicide after doing poorly on college boards. In America, ...

Whats That Sound Outside - 1,309 words
How would you like to make $100,000 a year by only working thirty hours a week? Just imagine being able to show up at your job around nine o'clock in the morning without any boss getting mad at you for being late. While picking up the keys to your brand new, company truck, you check your messages in order to see what work needs to be done during the day. You head out and make your rounds to the customers that have requested your services, and then return to the office at three o clock in the afternoon to pick up your personal vehicle. The rest of the afternoon you are free to spend time with your family, and to complete some odd chores around the house. Many Americans believe that this scena ...

Whats Wrong With Involuntary Euthanasia - 448 words
A massive push is now underway to ensure that many people with a supposed poor "quality of life" -- not only people with disabilities that are congenital, but also with disabilities caused by illness or injury -- are "allowed" to die against their will. This campaign for involuntary euthanasia demonstrates that pro-lifers were correct when we said that euthanasia proponents would never stop at "voluntary" euthanasia. For many years euthanasia advocates, for public consumption at least, have marched under the banner of "autonomy" and "respect for family decisions." They pushed for living will laws, and later for durable power of attorney laws, that would enable people to say they didn't want ...

Whats Is The Price For Death - 821 words
The death penalty is the most inhumane, cruel and degrading form of punishment. The effectiveness of the death penalty has never been proven to be a deterrence of crime then any other form of punishment. Execution is irreversible and can be inflicted on the innocent. The cost of one person on death row far exceeds that of a person in prison for life. Race is also a factor in sentencing a person to death. Lastly political influence is a factor in which a person lives or dies. Since the founding of our government, putting a person to death for murder and until recently rape, has been the only cure. More than 13,000 people have been legally executed since colonial times. As many as 150 people w ...

Lord Of The Flies- Whats In A Name? - 1,130 words
Today, many readers of literature adopt an impression that all fictional books are naught but a good fairytale in a land far, far away, once upon a time. The Lord of the Flies takes place during an unreal time period, and its plot develops on a fictional island secluded from civilization. However, some of its contents are far from being the exaggerated concoctions of William Golding. This book is not simply about the adventures that a group of boys go through, but it is full of wisdom and philosophy that may be imperceptible at first. I think with further analysis, many of the seemingly confusing, and purposeless areas of the book can be understood. One of these interesting, yet difficult-to ...

Whats In A Name - 392 words
I feel very strongly about the idea that my wife should have my last name, but I understand why some women prefer to keep their maiden names. First, some women choose to keep their last name because of their profession. These occupations can include politicians, writers, lawyers, doctors, etc. Women in any of these lines of work want to have the last name they started with, because they want to maintain their clientele. If a woman was to get married and accept the husband's last name, she could potentially lose all or some of her customers. This scenario could be devastating to a woman's job, and I would feel sorry for her. However, I still think that I would want my girlfriend to accept my ...

Equality To All - 2,112 words
... religious goal over 2,000 years ago in the Christian Scriptures. Bergman states, "Incidentally, the source of the belief in the equality of man is the Bible, few ancient books espouse this concept, and it is foreign to most non-Christian peoples (6)." Since these concepts are biblical in origin, why are the students not told this? What about the fact that abortion, homosexuality and fornication are talked about in school, but teachers are not allowed to discuss the religious side of the issue, only the side deemed non-religious? Though the public schools are teaching a type of religion, obviously, the students are not informed about it; in fact, the topic of religion is not deemed import ...

Lenny Bruce - 1,212 words
Lenny Bruce Leonard Alfred Schneider, or more commonly known as Lenny Bruce, was a comedian, a family man, drug addict, and philosopher. A conventional Jewish child from Long Island, who joked about homosexuality, drugs, religion, and race. Arguably, he paved the way for the comics of today, paying the price for being twenty years ahead of his time. Addicted to vulgarity and drugs he became a regular in courtrooms across America. The humiliation he caused a Philadelphia judge is thought to be another reason he spent so much time in court. His untimely death still stirs speculation of murder, rather than just another junkie that overdosed. Bruce was born on October 13, 1925 in Long Island, Ne ...
