Thanksgiving is all about family, friends, food, and getting away from classes for a little while.  It’s not necessarily just a holiday were everyone comes together to be a family again, but its more along the lines of a necessity.  I feel that its necessary for everyone to celebrate Thanksgiving because its a time were you can just forget about work and just relax and spend time with your family.  It gives you time to catch up with a relative who you only see a few times through out the year.  I believe that its time well spent.

Sure its a holiday and a sacred tradition that has been passed down from over a hundred years ago, but its much more than that.  To me its all about preparation for the feast.  I do my part when it comes to preparing the food for everyone to eat, because not only does it give you a feeling of satisfaction, but it also makes you feel better if you eat more than everyone else.  What else can I say.  Thanksgiving rocks!

The earth is a planet, but to living things it is much more than just a planet.  As residents of earth, we have quickly come to terms that this is our home and it is our place of refugee.  Not only is the earth a safe haven, but it is a source of nutrients that provides us with every day meals from all food groups.  The planet is so unique in the fact that we exist on it. 

We feel as though we are the only ones moving, but quite frankly the earth is moving with us, but just at a faster pace.  Our little big planet is so unique in the fact that we exist and that as of now we don’t know if there is life out there in space.  So it is our responsibility to keep all living things safe, including our own kind.  All in all, we are the one’s who decide whether or not we protect and preserve the planet, or put it through carnage.

This article clearly presents the common position that the Republican party is currently at odds with.  This article is stating that the Republican party is doing anything that they can in order to stop the Health Care Reform bill from passing into law.  They mention that it may be an impossible task for now, because President Barrack Obama is still in office, but they are urging their supporters to stand firmly next to them so that they can produce a deep impact on the decision of its passing.  

I believe that even though they have the upper hand they can’t do to much because of the fact that the Democrats are still ahead in the Senate position.  The Republican strategy involves limiting the money in the IRS and so that the IRS will be forced to take measures in the decision of the Health Care Bill.  In a way this may happen because the IRS needs money in order to be able to who is eligible for tax credits and other health care related points.  Either side can have the power to do what they want, it just depends on who is the overall decision maker.

Soccer is a world renowned sport that has been idolized by so many countries around the world.  In 1863, The British developed a set of rules and guidelines for the game, Laws of The Game, which have been used to this day.  Some of the basics you need to know is that in soccer there are twenty-two players on the field at the start of the game.  There are two teams with eleven players on each team.  Each team has one goalie who tries to protect the ball from going into to the net.  You have three main positions: forwards, midfielders, and defenders.  Each team has it’s own formation, so positions can vary amongst players.

Players can get injured, and players can be taken off the field for fouls and other forms of unsportsmanlike conduct during a game.  Goalkeepers are the only players that are allowed to use there hands to grab or pick up a ball while they are in the box.  If you are a forward, you are to stay up the field and try to be on sides.  Forwards are the primary players that attempt to score a goal.  If you are a midfielder, your job is to be there to help out the forwards if they need it, or help out the defenders if they need it.  If you are playing as a midfielder you need a lot of strength and speed to get from one side of the field to another.  As a defender, you are required to not let anyone get to the goal.  Defenders are also able to get forwards on the other team offsides so a free kick would be given on there behalf.  The Laws of The Game is the set of guidelines that insures the safety of players and set of rules in order to make calls during a game.

 The publication of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 was one of the single most profound moments in American history.  It was written by Thomas Jefferson, it outlined the colonies grievances against King George and the right of revolution.  This theory of becoming a separate state came from John Locke’s political ideas.  The Declaration asserted the rights to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  This contract allows people the right to revolt against government.

For a while, the Declaration was not really used and it kind of faded away, but due to Civil Rights era it came about and was recognized.  The Declaration makes the statement in it about individual rights.  In this statement it explains that all men are created equal and that they should all receive unalienable rights such as: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  This statement changed American history and it helped stop segregation and neglect against African Americans.  The Declaration of Independence has had a strong effect on the country, and continues to do so through its well thought out statements.
