America is looked and seen at in many different viewpoints all across the world. This week in class we got to look at a few different view points on America that was written through a song. One song that we looked close at was “American Saturday Night” by Brad Paisley. In the song, Brad Paisley uses many different rhetorical strategies to get his point across. The song that he wrote to cover his point about America is showed that America is often viewed as one big country, when really it is just made up of multiple different cultures. There are many different cultures and beliefs in America. In the first Stanza of his song “Its a french kiss, italian ice, spanish moss in the moonlight, just another American Saturday night.”(Paisley 9-11) Brad put this particular line in his song because he wanted to demonstrate that just because people live in America does not mean everyone is united under one religion or even united under one culture. He is also demonstrating that it is okay to do what you want, you do not always have to follow what other people are doing. There is not a right or wrong way of doing something, when it comes to “American Saturday Nights.” Another rhetorical strategy that Brad Paisley uses to prove his point is in Stanza 1. “Yeah she's join around the world tonight but she ain’t leaving here”(Paisley4-5) These could lines demonstrates that America is so big in diversity, that it has so many different cultures and religions. You do not have to

The choice to adorn oneself, to use cosmetics as an outward expression of self, as can be seen in third wave feminism, as useful.

Love, Sex and Gender in the World Religions
Edited by Joseph Runzo and Nancy Martin

At the turn of the twenty-first century the world has largely dispensed with the
overt racial hierarchies that existed before the post–World War II racial break:
colonialism, racially demarcated labor reserves, explicit policies of segregation
and apartheid, and candid avowals of racial superiority and inferiority all appear
today as hopeless atavisms, relics of a benighted past. International organizations
like the UN have for…
Throughout history we can find many instances where religion was strongly opposed to scientific research. For example, the Catholic Church’s objection to Galileo’s defense of Copernicus’ heliocentric model where he offered his observations that he felt furthered the theory that the planets revolved around the Sun. At that time, the belief that the Holy Scriptures were perhaps inaccurate was one thing, but attempting to confirm it as Galileo tried to do was a completely different issue and resulted in Galileo…
