Dear Gloria Negrete McLeod, As we know, the United States Army Corps’ has started wasteful construction projects that degrade wetland for our black bears in the South. Everyone has said that deforestation is bad and it hurts animals which is correct. I read an article saying that the U.S. Army Corps’ has taken wetland from black bears now, if you look back, deforestation is destroying an animal’s habitat and by the Army taking the wetland isn’t that the same? There is an act called the Water Resources Development Act or (WRDA). It states that the Congress, uses this to tell the Army Corps’ Engineers what and where to build on our landscape. This WRDA includes provisions (Section 2032 & 2033) that would speed up Corps projects by shortening the amount of time available to complete a thorough environmental review of the projects but at the same time it undermines the National Environmental Policy Act or the (NEPA). The NEPA is an environmental review of projects that is essential to ensure that Corps projects benefit the nation rather than waste taxpayer dollars and harm our water resources and wildlife. Most people don’t care why or how many animals and habitats are being destroyed. But there is always hope because nearby someone who hears or their heart is touched by this or bear enthusiast, will come and support as much as I want to. You look on TV and there are commercials on how orangutans are coming closer to extinct and tigers too. So I say to myself well,…

Progression for OUR Nation
Freedom. Ladies and Gentlemen, that is what we had been striving for, for far too long while under Great Britain’s Monarchy. To be our own person, and not have any underlying consequence because of it. However, after we obtained said freedom and became independent from Great Britain, we have failed to have a properly balanced government that’ll make our nation strong. Let’s face it, The Articles of Confederation at first…
The future of the “nation-state” may be at stake because of the ever growing economy and politics of our world. In The End of the Nation State? The author talks about how our society is becoming more and more globalized, thus a non-state world is predicted. This can all tie into the fact of devolution, which occurs in several states in our modern world. Nations are beginning to depend on their larger cities turning the power to them rather than a central government…

Why am I optimistic about our nations future? One of the biggest reasons I am optimistic
about our nations future is because in two years by turning eighteen my generation will have the
responsibility and opportunity to vote for the leaders, from Local to State Representatives, to the
president, my generation can vote for the leaders of our country. We have the chance to put the
best people possible in charge.
Now even though right now my generation might seem too immature to be part of that…
Birkland and James Anderson argue that the United States has been among the most stable nations in the world.
Policy restraint in the United States is both a cause and a consequence of key cultural and historic features that have made the United States one of the most politically stable nations in the world. Great foreign and domestic strife could not change the most stable features of American political life and our politi-cal institutions. James Anderson, author of Public Policymaking, states the…
