United States Questions and Answers (Q&A)

Once existed in the United States were two unions of Labor, which were the American Federation of Labor (AFL) and the Knights of Labor. The American Federation of Labor happened to be a formal association of the labor unions, whereas the knights of Labor seemed to be a more secretive one. The knights of Labor, in addition, was a more radical association. James L. Wright and Uriah Smith Stephens formed a secret union in 1869, which is referred to as the noble family of the Knights of Labor.


This is actually the basis for the formation of the Knights of Labor. Stephens was once the leader of the organization before Terence V. took up the leadership position and made the organization have national recognition. After some time, the Knights of Labor lost its recognition as its membership declined due to autocratic structure, unsuccessful strikes, and mismanagement. When the Knights of Labor lost its recognition, the AFL gain popularity after its formation in 1886 at Columbus, Ohio.

It is very easy to think that the word congressman is a term for any member of the US Congress, which includes both the members of the Senate and the House of Representatives. This is definitely not true. The congressman is a term for a member of the US House of Representatives. Both the Senate and the House of Representatives are the legislative arm of the US government. Senate is also known as the upper chamber, while the House of Representatives is known as the lower chamber. Although both chambers constitute the legislative arm of government, there are some differences between them.

The total number of senators in the Senate is 100, while there are 435 members who are duly elected in the house of representatives. A senator uses 6 years for a single term, and he can be reelected after the expiration of his first term. Congressmen use two years for a single term, and they can be reelected for another two years. You are eligible to contest for a senatorial position only if you are a US citizen for at least nine years, and you must be over 30 years of age. Someone contesting for a position in the House of Representatives must be over 25 years and must be a US citizen for at least seven years.

There is no doubt that currently there is no superpower in the world other than the United States and in fact, no country even comes close to the US in projecting its global influence. One of the leading factors behind the enormous power of US is its military which outcasts any other military force in the world. The defense budget of US is more than the next ten combined which itself signifies the state of defense machine the US possesses.

The current global order which has the US on top was established at the end of World War II, in which allies were the victors and the US benefitted the most among the allies and that resulted in setting up of current global order. US rise as the sole superpower in 1990's with the disintegration of Soviet Union, which was US sole competitor.

So yes it would be factually correct to state that the US is the most powerful country in the world in every aspect.

But cuisine in other countries is just as fatty, or worse such as in the UK, but they have less of an obesity problem. The difference I think has more to do with walking habits. In America, people seem to avoid walking as much as possible. They will drive over to the next parking lot if it saves them a minute of walking. There is significant infrastructure devoted to avoiding walking, like the placement of parking lots and availability of scooters. This does not seem to be the case in other countries, at least not to the same degree.

Combine better activity habits with a better diet, and you get results like you see in Japan or Sweden.

Hispanic and Mexican are most times used interchangeably, but in the deeper sense of what the two words stand for, they are not the same. Hispanic simply means a Spanish-speaking person or culture. The word can also be used for a person residing in the United States, Latin America of Spanish ancestry. Mexican, on the other hand, is used to referring to a native or inhabitant of Mexico. While Spanish is the major language spoken by all Hispanics, a lot of Mexicans can't speak Spanish, although Spanish is the main language in Mexico.


Another difference is the country for Mexicans and Hispanics. Mexicans are inhabitants of Mexico, which means Mexico is their country, while Hispanics live in the United States, although they are Spanish-speaking people. Another difference is that the origin of most Hispanics can be traced back to Spain or other Spanish countries, while Mexicans are from Mexico.

There are Americans who are racist and there are some who are not. It is not correct to say that Americans as a whole are racists because some of them are not. The racism may have occurred because of their history. A lot of light-skinned Americans think that they are better than those who are dark-skinned. It is a good thing that there are those who managed to rise up from all of the oppression that they have received.

Black Americans started to prove that they can be popular too. They have proved that they can be good at what they do. White Americans now treat some Black Americans as demi-gods. There are just some Americans who assume that they are better just because of how they look.

I do not believe that all white people detest blacks, but when a white person is a racist, it is usually because of the attitude of white supremacy, which is the notion that white people are above blacks. There is a seed that was planted long ago by our forefathers that blacks should serve white people. Generally, it is the structural organization of black lives, the material conditions that are considered to be exclusive to the race.

Poverty and under-education are correlated with the black culture. White supremacy is founded on the black condition, which maintains and reproduces it. There are often many assumptions made about those who are different.
