In September of 1787, the delegates to the Convention in Philadelphia presented their work to the American public for ratification. The proposed Constitution marked a clear departure from the Articles of Confederation, which had essentially established a federal “league of friendship” between thirteen sovereign and largely independent states. Under the newly proposed plan of government, the union between the states would be strengthened under a national government that derived its authority—at least in part—directly from the American people rather than purely from the state legislatures. And under the new Constitution, the people would be represented equally in the House, regardless of the state in which they lived—unlike the Articles of Confederation, according to which the Continental Congress equally represented the states. In other words, the proposed Constitution would make the United States a nation of one people rather than a loose confederation of states.

The proposed Constitution, and the change it wrought in the nature of the American Union, spawned one of the greatest political debates of all time. In addition to the state ratifying conventions, the debates also took the form of a public conversation, mostly through newspaper editorials, with Anti-federalists on one side objecting to the Constitution, and Federalists on the other supporting it. Writers from both sides tried to persuade the public that precious liberty and self-government, hard-earned during the late Revolution, were at stake in the question.

Anti-federalists such as the Federal Farmer, Centinel, and Brutus argued that the new Constitution would eventually lead to the dissolution of the state governments, the consolidation of the Union into “one great republic” under an unchecked national government, and as a result the loss of free, self-government. Brutus especially believed that in…...

Fed Reserve

... The Fed Reserve is privately owned. Its staff is from Wall Street, banking, and transnational conglomerates and occasionally from academia. Recently we discovered that $101.4 billion was originally secretly funneled through AIG to AIG counterparties - parties that were owed these sums by AIG, which had not collateralized derivative contracts. That is like writing insurance and having no collateral reserves set aside for losing events. The Federal Reserve in their wisdom paid off AIG’s debt with what eventually will be taxpayer debt. This is wrong and it should not have been done secretly. When demanded by a Federal Judge to reveal to whom these monies were paid and under what circumstances, the Fed said it would harm their reputations and it was a “state secret.” This is part of the program never spoken of that exists to assist the “Working Group on Financial Markets, which manipulates markets 24/7, under an Executive Order signed in August 1988 by then President Ronald Reagan. This was executed to protect against market failures such that had taken place the previous October. The order was for emergencies. The Treasury, the Fed, Wall Street and banking have distorted its original intent. The Fed also sets interest rates and regulates the issuance of money and credit. Thus the Fed holds a pivotal role in our financial well-being. They also are to insure the soundness and stability of the banking system. If our banking system breaks down it is the fault of the Fed.

Fed: Tools That Change the Money

...FED: Tools That Change the Money Supply Maggie Ensor Principles of Macroeconomics: ECO 203 Melvin Landry December 10, 2012 In this writing, I intend to inform you of the three tools used by the FED, to manipulate the direction of the economy. Further, I will explain how the FED can use these tools to influence, and better yet, get the economy out of a recession. First, to explain this properly, I need to define to you, Monetary Policy. Monetary policy refers to what the FED does to influence the amount of money and credit in the U.S. economy. What occurs with money and credit affects interest rates, and affects how the U.S economy performs. [2] www.federalreserveducation.org The goals of monetary policy are to promote maximum employment and stable prices; in doing so, supporting conditions for long-term economic growth and long-term maximum employment. [2] Alright, now that you understand monetary policy, I can explain to you, the three tools of monetary policy that the FED uses to manipulate the money supply in the U.S. economy. The first tool we will discuss is, “open-market operations.” Open-market operations are made up of the buying and selling of government securities from large banks and security dealers, thereby increasing the money supply in the hands of the public. [3] http://www.investopedia.com In an open-market, the FED doesn’t determine, by itself, which securities it will do business with. The choice comes from the open-market in which......

Corn Fed vs. Grass Fed

...Corn Fed vs. Grass Fed Have you noticed how there’s an increasingly wider selection of types of beef to be purchased? Which option is healthier? Which one is least expensive? There has been an ongoing dispute over which choice of beef we should be consuming. While both may seem to have their own advantage and disadvantage; ranging from being cost-efficient, to more beneficial nutrients. Both contribute to the eco-system, but in completely different ways. While grass-fed beef is the healthier alternative, it can prove to be a bit pricey, nonetheless, grass-fed beef provide us with more nutrients; they’re higher in Omega-3 fatty acid and vitamin E. Corn-fed beef, on the other hand, is relatively more affordable. The million dollar question should be, it’s affordable, but at what cost? What makes corn-fed beef so much cheaper than grass-fed? Corn-fed cattle go through a process, almost like an assembly line. The first step, the cow and calf live in a cow-calf operation. Here, the cow is artificially inseminated for the sole purpose of reproduction. For the first 6 months, the calf stays with their mother, once they’re old enough they’re taken to a pen, where they’re introduced to corn. To make a long story short, the calf is finally moved into a CAFO (confined animal feeding operation). From this point on, they’re all confined to small caged in areas. These facilities house hundreds, even thousands of farm animals. From this point on their diet is strictly corn, protein,......

Fed Reserve

...may even need to “share” the excess or surplus of funds in their reserves with another bank; this is known as Fed Funds. These funds carry an interest rate as well. The interest rate may be higher or lower depending on the Federal Reserve. The higher the interest rate the more likely a bank is wanting to loan to another bank. If it is lower the desire will be undesirable. The Discount and Fed Funds rate correspond, the Discount rate is normally set slightly below the Fed Funds rate in effort to increase the money in circulation. When the discount rate is above the Fed Fund rates then the money in circulation is decreased. The Federal Reserve Bank is located in each region to allow for an even distribution among the United States. Each of the Reserve Banks are governed by the Federal Reserve System’s Board of Governors who have been nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. AVOIDING INFLATION • Various monetary policies used to Avert inflation • Contractionary Monetary Policy: • The Fed will sells bonds and therefore decrease the money supply. Thereby raising the fed funds rate to decelerate inflation • Higher interest rates during signs of inflation to contain money growth • Monitor unemployment rates: • high unemployment, inflation will be low *(Colander, 2012) MONETARY POLICY TO CONTROL MONEY SUPPLY • By controlling the reserve rate, the Fed can influence the amount of money in an economy • Expansionary policy • Goal is to decease reserve rate so......

Anti Federalism

...where the sates are supreme makes is more beneficial to the people; having a strong central government however, leaves room for domination and control. The federalist supported the constitution and wanted a strong central government. As an anti-federalist the main focus of interest is the protecting the people's rights and limiting government control. Federalist supported the constitution, and wanted immediate ratification. They favored limiting state power, and believed that a strong central government was needed to protect the country. The Federalist's response to the anti-Federalist claim that a Bill of Rights should be introduced was that it would be dangerous. If a right was not listed, what was stopping the government from violating that law? The Federalist figured it would be best if no specific law was listed. Anti-Federalists did not want to ratify the constitution. Most Anti-Federalists believed that a somewhat stronger central government was needed, but for the most part favored a federal system where the states were supreme. Anti-Federalists did not want to ratify the constitution because there was no bill of rights, they wanted the rights of the people to be documented, and limit government power to some degree. The anti-federalist also believed that congress and the executive branch held too much power, and they feared that people of wealth would have the opportunity to obtain more power than the government itself. The Federalist papers contained many......

The obesity epidemic in America has occurred mostly in the past 20 years. The movie also states the 1/3 percentage of American will develop diabetes if current trends continue. The construction of the movie is straightforward, easy to follow and interesting. It posits the assertion that the for the last few decades, we’ve basically been fed poison in the form of sugar, on a mass scale, with a mass PR cover up to prevent the dire reality of our diet from coming to light. Let’s establish some basic facts. Half of us are overweight. One-third of us are obese. About a third of us are expected to have diabetes within the next 20 years.

Anti-Federalist

...By: Normandie Lovince I am a supporter of the anti-federalist party. The anti-federalist took some of the ideas that the federalist had into consideration. Instead of abolishing or ignoring these ideas, they wanted to improve them. The anti-federalist and the federalist share two very opposing views. As you read this essay, you will gradually start to see just how my ideas are being supported as to why I've chosen to become an anti-federalist. The anti-federalist party was the first out of two political parties of the U.S. This party was led by Henry, George Mason and Samuel Adams alongside Richard Henry Lee who wanted the president and the senate to have the entire executive and 2/3 of the legislative power. As an anti-federalist, I believe that the constitution should not be ratified. I feel like the best way, that the U.S citizens should be protected is by being kept safe from the Government and the bill of rights will do that because of the freedom and liberty that it gives us. "The greatest importance for Freemen to retain themselves are the liberties given to us in the bill of rights", which is why it's so important that we'd add it to the constitution. In order to get the bill of rights to be in the constitution we'd need to sacrifice part of our natural rights, for the good of others around us. The anti-federalist believed that the constitution should have a bill of rights. The Anti-federalist opposed the constitution, while the federalist themselves......

Anti-Aging Superfoods

...Anti-Aging Superfoods Olive Oil Four decades ago, researchers from the Seven Countries Study concluded that the monounsaturated fats in olive oil were largely responsible for the low rates of heart disease and cancer on the Greek island of Crete. Now we know that olive oil also contains polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that may help prevent age-related diseases. Yogurt In the 1970s, Soviet Georgia was rumored to have more centenarians per capita than any other country. Reports at the time claimed that the secret of their long lives was yogurt, a food ubiquitous in their diets. While the age-defying powers of yogurt never have been proven directly, yogurt is rich in calcium, which helps stave off osteoporosis and contains “good bacteria” that help maintain gut health and diminish the incidence of age-related intestinal illness. Fish Thirty years ago, researchers began to study why the native Inuits of Alaska were remarkably free of heart disease. The reason, scientists now think, is the extraordinary amount of fish they consume. Fish is an abundant source of omega-3 fats, which help prevent cholesterol buildup in arteries and protect against abnormal heart rhythms. Cocoa Beverage & Dark Chocolate The Kuna people of the San Blas islands, off the coast of Panama, have a rate of heart disease that is nine times less than that of mainland Panamanians. The reason? The Kuna drink plenty of a beverage made with generous proportions of cocoa, which is unusually rich in......

Anti-Bullying

...bullied every single day in the United States and sometimes, it cannot be stopped effectively. Bullies are everywhere. They are in offices, at home, in the neighborhood, and many other places. It is a huge problem in schools as well. Many schools in the country have anti-bullying policies. These policies are all different and are implemented in different ways. Most of these policies are not effective though. Anti-bullying policies are not effective against all bullying because school bullying and its effects are still seen, because of the growing use of technology, and because of family influences. Anti-bullying policies are not effective because school bullying cases are still frequently happening in schools. Bullying is a major problem in the world today and it can be seen almost everywhere and it happens every day to people. It most commonly occurs in schools though. Many schools have adopted policies that they use to help prevent bullying in their establishment. However, these policies are not always effective. A study by a University of Texas in Arlington found that students at a school that had an anti-bullying policy, “were 1.2 times more likely” to be bullied than students who attended a school without an anti-bullying policy (Antoniades, pg. 1). This confirms the fact that these policies are not always effective. A school that does have a policy actually is more likely to have bullying. A student is often challenged to bully because they see that they can’t and that......

The Fed

...Samuel Toro POS 1001 Professor Harris The Fed Throughout history, many great nations have risen and fallen. Their policies, laws, and culture dictate whether a nation will fall or flourish. From a consumer culture to a more conservative culture, it plans out the style and ideals of the population as a whole. Mass media also shapes how the population views the world around them; they can make an individual in favor or against a certain issue using techniques to speak to the consumer at a subconscious level. Monetary policy by far is a significant factor in the survival and well being of any nation. It can destroy or exalt any nation through policies that effect how the economy and money interact. Ranging from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, the Bank of Japan, and the Swiss National Bank to the European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve, these banks were deployed to attend the dire need of keeping monetary value stable; at what ever cost. Though for the best interest, centralized banks have helped and hurt their respective economies in many different ways. “During the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century, financial panics plagued the nation, leading to bank failures and business bankruptcies that severely disrupted the economy. The failure of the nation's banking system to effectively provide funding to troubled depository institutions contributed significantly to the economy's vulnerability to financial panics” (Fox 1).

...organizations with interest in internet commerce while operating “in a manner that increases competition and facilitates international participation in its management”. The team determines that ICANN operates under the umbrella of governmental authority and represents more than a trade association with accreditation authority thus allegations of an Anti-Trust violation necessitate review as a vertical restraint. Importantly, the team recognizes that individuals within ICANN could be reviewed horizontally if they were to act outside the scope of ICANN regulation. VeriSign, however, alleges no such action; indeed, VeriSign fails to allege any individuals as conspirators and ICANN’s actions warrant review as a vertical restraint in this action. 3. Does it matter that ICANN’s leadership is chosen by those with a commercial interest in the Internet? A pro se violation under section 1 of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act is inherently illegal requiring no proof of motive as the mindset of the violator remains immaterial. While a court may properly examine motive for a criminal action, none is necessary. The implication in VeriSign’s Anti-Trust action could be that conspirators maintained an economic interest in issuing the ultimatum. Should the court reach for a “Rule of Reason” analysis, then motive rises to a more interesting stand. Here, the position of the player outside the functioning body of ICANN bears recognition. Nevertheless, unless the player acts outside the......

Grass Fed

...Grass Fed vs. Corn Fed Michael Green DeVry University Grass Fed vs. Corn Fed The health of America is steadily declining and poor diet is a contributing factor (Pollan, 2006). Meat has become a main staple in the American diet in the last century. In fact, the average American consumes about 180 pounds of meat consisting of beef, pork, chicken, and turkey each year (Pollan, 2006). What the average American may not know is that most of these meats were grain fed during production, which is detrimental to the diets of both the livestock and its consumers. Grain feeding of livestock on American farms should be eliminated because human consumption of these meat products contributes to the decline in the health of America; instead, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) should require farmers and producers to provide the healthiest diet for animals to eliminate the health risks of the consumers. Problems Studies indicate that grain fed meats lack key nutrients optimal to the health of America. For almost 50 years most American farmers have been using grain to feed his or her livestock (Pollan, 2006). Grain feeding became prevalent not long after World War II when there was an over-abundant supply of grain (McCluskey, Wahl, Li, & Wandschneider, 2005). Farmers rely heavily on grain feeding because it is a cheaper product, it shortens the growth process,...
