Haymarket and Strikes

Haymarket Strikes-I believe that if workers are treated fairly then they have the right to strike. I think that the strike at Haymarket was justified but that the violent part wasn't. It is your right to protest but to do it within the boundries of the law and murder is against the law.
Womens Rights- Just like above woman used protest to get what they wanted. They fought for their right to vote and made sure that they brought attention to their cause. But they kept it peaceful unlike Haymarket.
I Have A Dream- I think that what Martin Luther King Jr. said was correct and that his words were the truth and that it needed to be said. Doctor King had always stayed with the idea of peaceful protest and that they must always march ahead. Even in the face of terrible police brutality he stayed to the cause of peaceful protest. He knew that the way to acheive civil rights was to protest and take a moral highground over the those that appossed them.

What is the worth of a human being?
I believe that the worth of a is something a price cannot be put on but our society trys to do anyway. We try to riase ourselves above each other with material and status jobs. But in reality one human life is the same as another. We are all the same, when you get down to the bare minimum everyone is the same.
Name as many miniorties-Latinos, African-Americans, Asians, Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Hindus, Buddists,
Now put percentages- Latinos-24%, African-Americans-25%, Asians-20%, Jews-30%, Catholics-45%, Muslims-25%, Hindus and Buddhists-8%.
How is worth determined in the U.S
Worth is determined mostly by money in the U.S.

Washington Post topics

Five things from the Washington Post
1)Sarah Palin's Book sells one million copies, How is this possible.
2)Tiger Woods allgeded affair- Another thing that people should just ignore this is dumber than the ballon boy scandal.
3)Our Difficult Task,teaching Afghans leadership-Hopefully the Afghan military and Government can get the stuff together and finally take over but after the elections I have lost faith of their ability to do anything maybe new ways of teaching can get them to realize it's their future.
4)D.C.Council votes to legalize same-sex marriage-I believe that everyone deserves the same rights regardless of your sexual orientation. Good for the D.C. council.
5)Senate Health Bill gets a boost-The Post says that the bill will not increase costs for most people, hopefully this will let the bill pass.
