United States Questions and Answers (Q&A)

People's opinion about American police is not in any way different from the most commonly spoken things about the police department in most countries. While American police are quite effective in some areas, especially in reducing certain crimes in the society, however, American police have been called all sorts of names. There have been numerous cases of Human Rights infringement, especially towards the black.

You just find yourself getting deep into more problems just because you are black. I've heard so many black people saying they were arrested just because of some alleged crimes that cannot be proved by the police. This is getting really frustrating, especially when you know that you can be arrested for nothing. This has made a lot of people concluded that this abuse of power by the American police to the black is just another way of encouraging racism. I think aside from this problem, American police are really great at solving crimes.

If you define productive by how much the people living in a state contribute to its economy, than Mississippi is the least productive state in the United States. It’s not surprising to see Mississippi ranked last because it also “ranks last as the worst state for kids, has the most residents living in poverty, and has one of the poorest education systems in the country.” This ranking was developed by TheStreet.com.

They analyzed 2008 data (the most recent available) from both the Bureau of Economic Analysis and the Bureau of Labor. When they factored in the “total number of residents living in each state who were 16 or older that year, as well as the average number of hours they worked per week”, Mississippi came out at the bottom.

There are government documents that indicate that something far more complicated than Osama bin Laden/ Al Queda did it. “28 pages” were released which stated that many of the revelations in those pages didn’t align with 9/11 commission conclusions. These pages reveal: Al Queda did not act alone in carrying out the 2001 terror attacks on America that killed so many people. Evidence has emerged that the government was investigating those leads in 2012.

The report shows that the feds were actively investigating the network that supported al Hazmi and al Mihdher at least until 2012. Federal prosecutors were investigating filing charges against one of the individuals for providing material support to the 9/11 hijackers. It looks as if the FBI was tracking leads that point in the direction of official Saudi support for 9/11 hijackers.

I do think that dress codes are necessary to a certain extent. It will allow students to become more disciplined because they have rules to follow. Making some rules about what they should wear does not mean that they are being forced to forget about individuality. They can still express their personality through the clothes that they wear as long as they adhere to the dress code.

What makes dress code unnecessary when girls and boys are not given the same rules to follow. If the dress code will be implemented, it has to be fair to girls too. Dress codes should allow equal opportunities for both boys and girls to dress decently. It should not be created to single out the girls alone.

The Missouri River is the longest river in North America. Rising in the Rocky Mountains of western Montana, the Missouri flows east and south for 2,341 miles (3,767 km) before entering the Mississippi River north of St. Louis, Missouri. For over 12,000 years, people have depended on the Missouri River and its tributaries as a source of sustenance and transportation.

The river takes drainage from a sparsely populated, semi-arid watershed of more than half a million square miles (1,300,000 km2), which includes parts of ten U.S. states and two Canadian provinces. When combined with the lower Mississippi River, it forms the world's fourth longest river system.

Each state in the United States has some rights to make decisions that only apply to their own state. This includes the death penalty. Over time, states have felt that the death penalty should not be used in punishment for a crime. However, the majority of the states have kept the death penalty. Another term for death penalty is capital punishment.

The states that have kept the death penalty are 31 of them and includes many of the western states and all of the southern states. Some of the states that have abolished the death penalty include Alaska, New York, Main and New Mexico, to name a few. Most of the states that kept the death penalty only use the death penalty for major crimes.

When the president was running for presidency during his or her campaign, he or she selects a vice president to be that role when the president wins the presidency. Even though they do have an important job, they have a tendency to take a back seat to the president. As a matter of fact, their job and duties are not as known as the president’s.

However, the vice president of the United States does have two main jobs to do. One job is to cast a vote if the Senate is tied in a decision for something. Recently, the vice president Mike Pence was the deciding factor when Betsy Devos was about to be the United States Secretary of Education. The other job is to oversee the Electoral College.

Any leader has a lot of power over their country because they make decisions for their entire country. Due to the power of the country, this depends on the power of the leader. Some of the most powerful countries in the world would result in having powerful leaders. Countries become powerful because of their involvement in the world’s activities and through their economies.

When a country starts exporting products due to their strong economies, this makes them stronger. Some of these countries include the United States, Russia, China, Germany and the United Kingdom. The United States is considered to be the most powerful. Since this country is the most powerful due to their economy and participation, then their leader at the time would be considered to be the most powerful person in the world.

In 1867, the United States purchased the land known as Alaska. During this time, Russia owned Alaska. Russia was also at odds with the United Kingdom. With the need for money in order to fund a possible war with such a powerhouse country as the United Kingdom and for fear that the United Kingdom would merely take the land, Russia felt obligated to sell the land to the United States.

The United States on the other hand, William H. Seward decided to get into negotiations with Russia in order to cause others in Congress to be thinking about something else other than Reconstruction. In 1867, the president at the time helped purchase this land for about 7 million dollars. This was about only two cents per acre.
