Afroyim v. Rusk is a 1967 U.S. Supreme Court case which ruled that American citizens may not be deprived of citizenship involuntarily. The U.S. government tried to revoke the citizenship of Beys Afroyim (pictured with his son), who had voted in an Israeli election after becoming a naturalized American citizen, but the court decided that his right to retain his citizenship was guaranteed by the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. It overruled Perez v. Brownell (1958), in which it had upheld loss of citizenship under similar circumstances. Afroyim opened the way for a wider acceptance of multiple citizenship in American law. Its impact was narrowed by Rogers v. Bellei (1971), which held that the Fourteenth Amendment did not apply in all cases, but the specific law in that case was repealed in 1978. The Bancroft Treaties—a series of agreements between the United States and other nations which sought to limit dual citizenship—were abandoned after the Carter administration concluded that they had been rendered unenforceable. As a consequence of revised government policies adopted in 1990, it is now "virtually impossible" to lose American citizenship involuntarily. 1846 – Polish insurgents led an uprising in the Free City of Kraków to incite a fight for national independence that was put down by the Austrian Empire nine days later.

Personally I agree that the drinking age should remain at twenty-one. One main reason is that as someone who drives a lot, the roads are already dangerous enough. Allowing teenagers to drink will be asking for more drinking and driving accidents, which stems from the social determinant of transportation and goes against the principle of autonomy. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that raising the drinking age to 21 saves about 800 lives a year. Another reason why I believe…
Pentagon knew, the state department knew” of his struggles, he does an excellent job of revisiting the past with anger. This makes it seem as though he was just finding out for the first time that he could have been saved earlier when he says, “now we know, we learned, we discovered.” In this instance, Wiesel allows the audience to revisit the past with him so that they too can feel the anger he has towards the indifference of the world. The audience can better understand the speaker’s attitude toward…

This summer my family and I drove to Daytona, Florida to visit with my grandparents. We had wanted to go to Florida for a while, missing the smell of the beach. Waking up at 4:15 in the morning, we all made sure we had everything we needed in our suit cases. It was just 4:45 in the morning when we started to pack everything in the back of the car. We got in our car and started to drive, which ended up to be 12 hours.
My grandparents live on a golf course which is very close the…

Today despite all the warnings and the risk posed to future health, young people still try it and many go on to become addicted. I think there are links between teenage smoking, depression and some negative behaviors; as a result, teenagers being manipulated into becoming smokers. As though it's not bad enough that adults get sucked in, when it's done to kids, it's craven, in every sense of that word. Thus, more and more governments are trying to make people aware…
