What do you think were the two most important reasons that American colonists began to revolt against British colonial rule? Also, on what basis would American colonists begin to justify national independence from Great Britain?

The main reason behind the revolution is French and Indian war. After the war, Britain taxed the colonists for the cost of the war. Colonists had been taxed before, but the taxes had been for the purposes of regulation and not for revenue. British increased the rules and regulation of the American colonies. They wanted the colonists to obey their laws that were meant to help British economy. The colonists were used to live more freely.
Secondly, The British started to tax the colonists more to get more money without consulting them. The colonists are not ready for this.
The revolution came about simply as the colonies had started to deny colonial rules meant for them. As the colonies become more big and prosperous, there is no need to follow the British rules.

American opposes the stamp act passed by British in parliament, to raise the revenue for the British army. “No taxation without representation” is the main slogan of American colonists. Most colonists boycott the British goods and some of them attacks the customhouses and tax collector’s homes.
In March 1776, stamp act repealed with the help of parliament voting but it happen after a long protest. The British rule was followed by most of the colonists until the acceptance of Tea act, 1973.
The first Continental Congress was called by the colonist after the resistance of united American to the British rule. This is the time when the British government strictly imposed their rules and regulation on the American colonies. The British government wanted the assurance that American colonies were obeying the regulation so that they help British economies. This increased the ruling nature…...

Analysis of the Oklahoma City Bombing- Apa Format- a+ Work

...Analysis of the Oklahoma City Bombing On April 19th, 1995, at 9:02 AM a bomb exploded outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Office Building in Oklahoma City. The cause of the explosion was an Ammonium Nitrate and Fuel Oil bomb in a 24 foot rental truck parked in the street on the north side of the building (Oklahoma City Fire Department Report of the Bombing). The building was home to sixteen federal agencies. This was the most destructive terrorist act on American soil until the 9/11 attacks. The chief conspirators in this attack have been Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols which met in 1988 at Fort Benning during basic training for the U.S. Army. Michael Fortier which also had some degree in involvement had been McVeigh’s army roommate. The three were sharing a common interest in survivalism and vehemently opposed gun control. They have all expresses anger with the way the Federal Government handled the 1992 FBI standoff with Randy Weaver at Ruby Bridge and the 1993 FBI standoff at Waco, Texas against the Davidians which ended with the burning and shooting deaths of David Koresh and 75 others. In March 1993, McVeigh visited the Waco site during the standoff, and then again after its conclusion. McVeigh later decided to bomb a federal building as a response to the raids. McVeigh initially decided to bomb a federal building but latter considered that his message would have a much greater impact if many people were killed in the bombing. McVeigh’s main criterion for......

Oklahoma City Bombing

...​Terrorism is a horrible threat to the modern world. It has become a problem around the world. Many innocent people are killed by terrorists. You can see terrorism in multiple forms including but not limited to, bombing, hijacking, cross border terrorist activities and massacres on a massive scale. Its consequences are very frightening. Though much effort is put into eliminating terrorism, it is impossible to get rid of it until some strict laws are devised. Whenever and wherever society is victim to brutality, injustice, wrongs and intolerance, terrorism cannot be eradicated. Terrorism was a dormant issue in the media until the attacks on the USA. The organized use of violence to target non-combatants for political purposes, is one of the most effective ways to gain media attention. Mainly used by extremist groups in the hopes of gaining recognition for their cause (weather it is religious, political or otherwise.) Several attacks on the US have recently made headlines. The attack on the USS Cole (October 12, 2000), US Embassy bombings in Kenya + Tanzania (August 7, 1998), Oklahoma City bombing (April 19, 1995) and finally the World Trade Centre bombing on February 26 1993. What we need to recognize about terrorism is its message. Attacks are always perfectly planned and precise, almost showing that they could do better. It was a clear, beautiful day in the town of Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995. Richard Williams arrived to work as normal, waving and smiling to his......

Perspectives on Bombing

...may be punished for his crimes, so he placed orders for American troops to enter Afghanistan in pursuit of Osama bin Laden. The Taliban had little or no experience in running a government and it seemed as though they didn’t see this as a priority when they took power in 1996. They demonstrated extreme single-mindedness as they focused on the achievement of law and order under their interpretation of the Sharia law. Their only aim was to create the world’s purest Islamic state; we could see this through the way the Afghan people were treated, the strict laws imposed on women and the way “corrupting influences” (television, music and films) were banned. While the Taliban was governing Afghanistan, many laws were created that controlled all aspects of women’s public and private lives and severely restricted their freedom. Their access to education, healthcare and employment were among some of the many basic necessities that were made difficult to obtain. The Taliban edicts formally ordered the segregation of women from men who were unrelated to them, this meant women could only appear in public if they were almost completely concealed in a garment called a burqa and only while accompanied by a close male relative. Life for women living in Afghanistan was made very difficult and women who had lived through this reported being in a constant state of fear, one woman going as far as saying “The slightest infraction, real or perceived, often does lead to a beating by the......

Not Guilty

...Love is gentle, and kind, never ugly nor bitter. It shall never over whelm the feelings within to kill. Han himself, Caught up in a misunderstanding of lost love. He's not guily of murder but, guilty of loving strong. When someone has decided to murder his or her significant other, it’s the importance of the crime phase which they think about. NO one can plan a successful killing overnight. Especially when it's to murder a woman or man that you love. A crazy person can execute or pursue a murder, but it’s something you wouldn't want to get caught doing. You have to cover every little track, and all your trails you leave behind. In the case of Han, in the story "Han's Crime", written by Nagoya Shiga, there is a married couple performing Chinese juggling acts around the world. While doing one show, Han's wife was killed by his hands. Immediately after that Han was arrested, and waited for trial. Later, before the judge, he was questioned to see if he murdered his wife, or if she died by accident. There were a few others that were questioned also, like the owner of the circus troop, where they staged the act. Then Han took the stand to give his side of the story. While the judge began to question Han about the murder, and how it occurred, he stated "that is was an accident, not murder". Also "that he loved his wife very much, in fact too much to kill her".(253) There was a lot behind the relationship of Han, and his wife. In regards to their Personality they both were kind, and...

Defiance and Its Consequences: the Boston Marathon Bombing

...The Boston Marathon Bombing At 2:49pm on April 15, 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts it was as if the first plane had hit the first tower all over again. 9/11/2001 is a date that will forever stick out in the minds of Americans; it is the date that changed my concept of freedom. We no longer live in a safe world there are evils all around us waiting for their chance to pounce. “The war is here now. It’s in our neighborhoods, and in our streets. We have to be united; because (the terrorist) are united in attacking us” (Halres, P. 2013). Terrorism is the most defiant behavior I can describe. Terrorists are bullies on a grander scale; they promote hatred against anyone who is not like them. The victims come from all age and societal groups. Bullying affects us all whether we are the intended victims or innocent bystanders like those of the Boston Marathon Bombing. What goes through someone’s brain that makes them think it is okay to cause harm and danger to another being? How can they turn off their emotions to justify what is wrong to be right? Just like the unsuspecting victims of the Columbine High School Massacre in 1999 and those of the Colorado Theater Massacre in 2012 there are evil people whom do not care about the well-being of others and wish to do great harm. The actions of the two men (Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev) who decided to set bombs off on innocent victims have their own supporters. That is insane! Absolutely insane! I believe the Tsarnaev......

To Count or Not to Count

...Management Accounting To Count or Not to Count Principles of Accounting II ACC 206 Management accounting and those whole wear the title of Management Accountant play an extremely significant role in the success of any business, large or small. The growth, progression and future worth of a business relies solely on its financial status and the decisions made in direct correlation to that status. These decisions vary throughout the professional world however, they are vital in every arena. Though managerial accounting and financial accounting differ one from another, one cannot exist without the information of the other. Are management accountants simply “bean counters” whose sole purpose or job description is to decide which bean will actually sprout, take root, regenerate and result in a profitable return? How is the decision of what information should be considered made? How important is management accounting? How vital is the information provided by management accountants? To count or not to count, that is the real question. Management Management is defined as directors and managers who have the power and responsibility to make decisions to manage an enterprise. It is comprised of the interlocking functions of formulating policies set by corporations and the organization, planning, controlling, and directing the firm’s resources to achieve the objectives of the policy.

Oklahoma City Bombing

...Tim McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing Born to the family of Mr. and Mrs. Bill McVeigh, Tim McVeigh was hit hard by the separation of his parents at age 10 in 1978,something he hardly showed. He rarely spoke about his mother and spoke fondly about his father. Being a low achiever in high school and not so interested in college, he hit the job market in the mid-1980s, a time when the men with the blue-collar skill were hardly needed. In high school Tim was really obsessed with guns, such that by the time he was 20, he was able to explode bombs and even shoot guns Tim was raised up in a conservative family; an exclusive one in the absence of the mother who had left with Jennifer, Tim’s sister at age 4.Bill McVeigh worked the midnight shift in an auto plant that his father had put his 30 years. Tim’s sister Patty took the role of the house’s disciplinarian even though she was barely 2 years older than Tim. He had his way of having friends around by having a skateboarding ramp and a haunted house at their house’s basement. Bill McVeigh bought Tim a 22-caliber rifle which he used in the woods before acquiring a semiautomatic BB gun which he was really proud of. His way of passing time during boring classes was drawing guns and had this patriotic way of talking about defending America. A few computer classes here and there he got him bored so he took up a job as a truck driver. The only two things he found interesting about this job was that he could carry a gun besides...

The Bombing of the American Embassy

...The Bombing of the American Embassy in Kenya | | POL-375 International Terrorism | Abstract Americans have focused majorly on the horror and devastation of September 11, 2010. The media covered acts of heroism and terrorism on US soil. These events were horrific; however, they were not the first time that terrorism has touched our precious land. The bombing of the US Embassy, in Kenya, is just one incident that occurred prior to 911. When we think of terrorism towards the US, everyone naturally thinks of 911; although, this would be a natural reflect, it shouldn’t be. Our country has been under attack several years prior to that memorable day. Does anyone remember the “powerful terrorist car bomb exploded outside US embassy in Kenya, killing at least 81 people – including eight Americans – and injuring more than 1600.” (William Claiborne. The Washington Post. Washington, D.C.: Aug 8, 1998. pg. A.01) American lives were lost on this day, also. Not only were there Americans among this death toll, but it was “confirmed that Osama bin Laden planned, financed and executed the attack.” (Jack Kelley. USA TODAY. McLean, Va.: Aug 21, 1998. pg. 04.A) As we live in the comfort of our homes, and go about our lives; our country has been under assault from this mastermind dating back to 1995. This event has familiar aspects to the mayhem that occurred on September 11th. There was a simultaneous bombing at the US Embassy in Tanzania on August 8th. These......

Process of Guilty or Not Guilty

...Process of Guilty or Not Guilty It wasn’t until 1960 that the Bill of Rights was an actual impact on The U.S Constitution. Many amendments were not followed and many were broken. When this process happens there is a procedure all officers will follow to prosecute the suspect. There are approximate 15 basic steps. Starting with a suspected violation of law. The book states that as the number of laws increase, so does the potential number of cases the system has to handle. The most important part of a case is the first action taken witch is a police investigation. Their first duty is to clarify if there was a crime committed or was it a misunderstanding. Most of the time calls are made after the crime has been committed other than while the crime is happening. No one ever sees a crime happening before hand. Any officer who is on call will need a probable cause connecting a suspect to the crime. An officer cannot do certain actions without probable cause. Even the criminals have rights, but once in suspicion of being guilty a warrant will be signed by the judge and now officers have every right to search anything you own and meaning any evidence found against the victim will be used in court. Therefore, after the search and having the suspect now officers can arrest and take into custody. Once arrested, a suspects liberty is at stake, but will also be protected by the communities say. Pg.109. Now that you have the suspect in custody depends on what state that there is a...

Church Bombing

...Sixteenth Street Baptist Church Bombing The Civil Rights Movement contained hundreds of events that affected the lives of millions of blacks and whites. Many people know about the “March on Washington” or MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Some critical events during this time period were not so peaceful or uplifting though. Lots of events included deaths, explosions, bombs, or just plain sadness and tragedy. The events, causes, and results of the Sixteenth Street church bombing, which occurred in the 1960’s, were an important part of the Civil Rights Movement in America. The Birmingham church bombing was a major event in the Civil Rights Movement. On Sunday, September 15th, 1963 a bombing occurred at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. This was the seventh bombing in Birmingham within six months! About 200 members of the church were in the building on this horrific day (History.com 2). Most were going to Sunday school or preparing for the 11am service. Four girls, wearing white, were preparing for their church’s annual youth-day worship service. They were getting ready in a bathroom underneath a staircase. A Caucasian man had been seen getting out of a turquoise Chevrolet and placing a box somewhere around the church earlier this day. At around 10:22 am, a box of fifteen dynamite sticks with a timer hooked to them exploded at the church (Hampton and Fayer 171). The detonation of the bomb happened on the east side of the church, under the...

Boston Mmassacre

...The Boston Massacre The Boston Massacre played a big role during the 1770’s by serving as an anti-British propaganda to enrage citizens and have the responsibility to eventually rise up and start the Revolutionary War. Citizens knew that they had the right to be free, but were growing angry because the British Parliament were raising taxes and placing taxes on them for more things. Without the Boston Massacre tensions leading up to war, and our freedom may not have happened at all. Since 1765, the people of Boston had been heading protests against British taxation: the Stamp Act then the Townshend Act. In 1767, The British Parliament passed the Townshend Act, enraging colonists. Citizens believed that the British didn’t have the right to tax them because they did not elect their representatives in Parliament. Only the Massachusetts Assembly, whose members were elected every year, had the right to levy taxes on its citizens. The Townshend Acts imposed duties on glass, lead, paints, paper and tea imported into the colonies. Townshend hoped the acts would defray imperial expenses in the colonies, but many Americans viewed the taxation as an abuse of power, resulting in the passage of agreements to limit imports from Britain. The East India Company was on the verge of collapse and Parliament hoped to boost the company's bottom line by allowing them to sell tea more cheaply to the colonists. Also, Boston was occupied by British soldiers in October, 1768 to help protect customs...
