    Duke University economist V. Joseph Hotz and his colleagues have shown that childbearing during teen years is not necessarily an irrational economic choice for poorer populations, and that is why teen-pregnancy rates are highest among Latinos and African-Americans.” I think that he is rite and that the US should give African Americans and Latinos more opprtunities in education and jobs.

    In the article , We Aren’t Family , was written by Amy Davidson. She wants her intended audience to be more optimistic about the next presidental election. The subject of GOP debate was to clear up a misconception about themselves for undecided voters. After the Grand Old Party debate much of the audience has a pretty clear perspective of every canidate.

    In the Debate of the Republicans who seem to racist and sexist argue about things that are not important. Santorum was talking about how Obama is afraid to stand up to Iran, and how contraception shouldnt be allowed. Gingrich belives spanish is getto insulting the hispanic community not only that but he believes teachers are evil. The intended audience are the American residents and the purpose of this article was to show how ridiculous the Republicans are.

    In the article, “G.O.P. Debate: We Aren’t Family,” was written by Amy Davidson. She wants her intended acknowledge the night of the republican debate in Arizona. The most striking moment of the debate was the booing. John king asked them to describe themselves with one word and Gingrich said he was “cheerful.” Amy said this was either a joke or a euphemism for sneering. There wasn’t much love on the night of the debate. Santorum was attacking Obama and he says, “This President obviously has a problem with standing up to Iran in any form.” He also says that he isn’t going to stop them. Sadly, this didn’t get any cheering. That wasn’t the only hate that night. Romney said the United Auto Workers were like a gang of robbers, public employees as overpaid “servants,” and he also called John King as an “annoyance.” Santorum didn’t get much love. Romney and Paul shared an interest in attacking him. The candidates couldn’t boo with the audience but instead they glared and smirked. The real question is, do they actually think, people would like them better when they act this way?

    The article, “G.O.P. Debate: We Aren’t A Family” is written by Amy Davidson. The Article targets the general population & the debate was held in Arizona. The purpose of the debate was to reach out to the American People about contraception, sex, poverty, teen-age families, and religion.

    The American People are living in hard times. For example, a quote from the article “When you have forty per cent of kids being born out of wedlock, and among certain ethnic groups the vast majority being born out of wedlock, you ask yourself, how are we going to have a society in the future? Because these kids are raised in poverty in many cases, they’re in abusive settings.” shows how families are living in poverty and hard times. The article shows how people will suffer in the long run & will have many hardships to come. People these days DO NOT have the knowledge on what’s going on in major parts of the world that will have consequences later on in life. In conclusion, the American People are living in hard times.

    In the article, the guys that are running for president sounded awful. They all got booed by the people of Arizona. All 4 of them ripped Obama for many things that he has done, or that he hasn’t do. King sounded strict and he took the answers very serious while the other 3 were joking around and not taking the questions seriously.
