The dream to “Make America Great again” has finally arrived. The sunshiny Utopia that we all dreamed of where people are seen and judged only by their character and not their skin colour is here. This dream has finally become a reality with no more wars, poverty and famine. Welcome to a world of equality.
Racism and Discrimination are now a thing of the past with the views of segregation and prejudice being changed by great men like Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, and Donald Trump. These great men have used the power of their words to shape generations with Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” Mahatma Gandhi’s “Be the change you want to see in the world” and Donald Trump’s “The only kind of people I want counting my money are little short guys that wear yamakas every day.” these great innovative people have inspired more to follow after them like David Dellinger, Malala Yousafzai, and Nigel Farage.
However, with all the problems that people are suffering in the world right now you can always depend on America the land of the free. We can see a country were the police have done great things for their community protecting young black people from the terrifying gangs like the vicious Tennis Club or the terrifying Yacht Squad blasting their damn Orchestral music. The police’s main focus is helping people all people and the freedom of speech is central to this with great groups that have existed for years remaining a main part of the country itself e.g. the NAACP, Suffrages, and the KKK. The mixture of freedom and law hasn’t been able to reach the nice great peak that America once had in the 1950’s were you were successful and happy and had a simple life (except if you were Black.) However, times have changed with equal opportunities open to everyone.
There is no such thing as racism these days, I mean just think the police stop and check ethnically diverse people simply to ensure their own safety (every week). On top of that people cross the road away from the diverse to simply give you more space on the street side walk and of course the TSA are like your personal valet giving you a friendly massage and checking your bags for you. Lets face the facts alright most crime has been committed by Black people right I mean Barack Obama became president to steal money from the government we are going be so much better with someone like Donald Trump I mean that’s a face that I trust. I myself just can’t trust any of them I mean their just a bunch of trouble making criminals but the ones I trust like James Eagon Holmes,Eric Harris,and Dylan Klebold total trust worthy American citizens unlike Oprah Winfrey, Rosa Parks, and John Lewis all dangerous Black people that did nothing but hurt their own country and people.
Isabelle Kerr’s piece of writing is very clear point made by herself with an attempt at explaining the “destructive nature” that slang is having on the English language.However the execution of the argument is poorly made with obvious flaws seen throughout the entire piece.
Possibly the only redeeming feature of Kerr’s writing is the clarity in which she presents her ideas and message. Although it was poorly delivered its clear what points she is trying to make. In the piece she is talking about the uselessness of adding some of the slang words we use into the dictionary. One of her points were “Words like twerking unlike and selfie are nothing more than slang which like any fashion trends come and go. After all when was the last time you heard someone call something groovy”. This point is very clear and useful using a metaphor “fashion trend” as an example and a well as a former slang phrase that isn’t used anymore “Groovy” to back her case however, she doesn’t defend slang to give a deeper insight into the limited benefits of slang v the downsides of it and how certain slang words come and(if they do)remain in the English language.
This is further seen in her paragraph about William Shakespeare which further derails her points.Some of her points against slang do not make sense most prominent is her point about Shakespeare “What hope is there? Shakespeare would be turning in his grave.”Shakespeare one of the most famous play writes of our time established in English only because of his use of slang which is a fault made by Isabelle Kerr’s point as she tries to use him to reinforce her point about the lack of need or use of slang. This lack of information rather tears down her point rather than help it.
Isabelle Kerr isn’t able to fully back her argument against slang when the points that she is bringing out further tears down her own argument with the use of William Shakespeare(a man famous for his use of slang) with her claims that the words provided by this current generation being “nonsensical and downright pointless…pitiful emblems of the current young generation’s”
Slang is an intriguing and diverse form of language with the smart interesting and simplistic use of the language only being the type of slang being wildly accepted. Slang gives people the chance for inventiveness and creativity of people to create new and interesting words done by people through the history of the English language and none more famous than William Shakespeare himself with his work depending solely on the use of slang to captivate his audiences to this day. there ain’t noting more to it
Walking down the street I had never thought the world could be this bright. Being selected by my Dad to go on a special trip made me feel like a medieval knight. It felt like an adventure unlike any other. Hear the roar of the chariot my dad calls a car as it barrels down the street the power at his fingertips. I feel so jealous; his control of the wheel that could guide me anywhere. I continue the journey down the road the radio babbling on about some A12 or something but I’m too focused on the giant monuments outside to pay attention. It’s amazing the different size of each building with a variation between huge and huger.
I break from the reality that I concocted for myself turning left to see the face of my brother. He seems sad and unhappy. I stare at him for a while with a smile so large on my face it would have to be surgically removed off my face to stop me smiling. We finally arrive at the destination I look to a sign and it reads Ye Olde Kent Road. I am astounded amazed as the magical gates open at my presence it’s beyond compare. We enter the store with the first thing I grab being the shopping trolley. I get to steer the trolley rolling down the aisle with ease and such speed.
My dad grabbed me by the arm. I expected a slap across my face but received one pound instead. Astounded, speechless, surprised I don’t know what to say what to think. This much money for me. This has turned out to be the best day ever. I race down to the toy section and see a Ben 10 Omnitrix I have only seen a couple episodes but it’s so cool the powers and abilities, but something flickers in the corner of my eyes, I see it the 10th doctor’s screwdriver with psychic paper the options are tearing me apart racking my brain of the different choices, weighing up the advantages . In the end their is only true choice, one option, the screwdriver. This has been an adventure returning home with the spoils of my victory I rejoice and relish in the fact that I came out on top. That was the best day ever.
This is the worst day ever. Dragged away from my laptop to go on a shopping trip that they could easily have gone to on their own I end up being placed in the car. The face of sadness my brother had all those years ago I finally realize why it there in the first place. I remember all of the things I used to enjoy as a child the way I lit up when I was asked to do something as a boy and yet the world seems several shades darker. I drive down to ASDA through Old Kent road. I couldn’t be less bothered about what’s going on and how it’s nothing I currently care about. I turn and see two eyes, a nose, and a smile it’s my cousin. His freakish smile sends chills down my back as I try to ignore everyone and everything until we arrive.
We arrived at the shop with the automatic doors opening as we entered I wished this would be over as quickly as possible. then My father called me and handed me one pound, my cousin was ecstatic I on the other hand wasn’t feeling as cheerful. I started to roam around the store seeing things moved around from where they usually used to be and how different this entire place is from what it was. I walk into the toy section and see the new version of the Omnitrix I can’t believe this things been going on for so long, my dad offers to buy me a new toy but I declined feeling it’s to childish for someone like me. We end the trip feeling no more happier than what I was before.
Goodbye, my irreplaceable son and Happiness My problem was wishing too much for you my loving son 7 years you were loaned to me and now I have to pay Done by the Gods on the right day I could no longer be a Dad? for why should a man not be grieved and be jealous? To get to escape lives troubles and problems. If there is something to be glad about its his age. Sleep now and relax because you lie as my best creation. who was it that his promises be as his love was something that would never leave me.
In this poem we see many contrasts and parallel’s to William Shakespeare’s Hamlet Soliloquy “To be or not To be”. In both poems one of the most prominent and obvious things that you can see from it is that they both are an internal emotional struggle for both people with Hamlet deliberating whether he should kill himself or his uncle and the Poet deciding if life is worth living without his son.
In Addition, both the poem and play are written by fathers that have lost their sons with one choosing to immortalize him through the play for years/centuries to come and another expressing his deepest sadness and the heartbreak he feels without him here.
In capitalism their is much seen to the difference we have between it and Communism we can see this by the different aproaches they have e.g Capitalism is a profit based system likened to Democracy with different rights and features obtained because of the rich being able to rule people in the way they see f
