This is the essay on nothing. I chose to write about nothing. In other words, "Blah, Blah, Blah." These words might seem nonsesical to you but to me they are the essence of my being. Where would I be if I could not say,"Blah, Blah, Blah" Then i decided to fly a kite. Boy was that swell. it was the greatest time I EVER HAD. I am trying to write a paper now but i am having dome trouble because i don't know what i am talking about. It is fun to just ramble on about nothing. i bet i know what you're saying to yourself, "blah blah blah". you see i told you. Its like the universal language for shut up your boring. Oh boy I think i still have a few more words to go before I can register. i think this whole thing is silly. I just wanna read the papers for opinions. I would never actually hand one in as my own. that would be terribly wrong. If any of you are planning on doing that you definetly shouldn't. I mean thats plagiarism. you could go to jail for that. People beat you in jail and do lots of other horrible horrible things to you. I am not from earth, i am from a land far far away. we have purple trees and orange cows. you know what i think this is actually a good writing excercise. i'm just writing completely non sensically based upon what pops into my head. i wonder if i could find a pattern in my toughts....

DBQ- The Russian Peasantry Keith Jacobs< Per 1 >Mr. Rodriguez From the day serfdom was abolished to the start of World War I, the conditions of the Russian peasantry was perceived differently by many different citizens of Russia. The poor conditions sought change and many Russians had different ideas on how to change these conditions. Although the peasants/serfs were free, not all was well in the big bear-like heart of Russia. Many Russians shared the views of revolutionary non- Marxists. Some non-Marxists believed that the emancipation of the peasants had caused village life to crumble and fall apart (Doc 3). They saw how the serfs had what they initially wanted yet no social order. The lives of the freed peasants were still bad and nobody cared about others private interests. Although the peasants didn't physically revolt (Doc 1), the thought was surely in their poor minds. These non-Marxists didn't believe in the theories of Karl Marx, yet would surely support one who did. Known as Intellectuals, These non-Marxists were a big part of the Russian population and shared the view points of many others ( Doc 7), ( Doc 8), ( Doc 3). Others such as Anarchists saw the conditions in Russia as being wrong and un-just. Most believed that all the emancipation brought was disease, starvation and no crops ( Doc 4 )( Doc 5). The peasants land was striped making it impossible to grow a sufficient amount of crops to survive, thus many peasants died. The land that they did have to grow crops was taken from the poor to raise cattle for the rich ( Doc 4 ),( Doc 2 ). Once again the peasants didn't respond to these conditions until the late 18 and early 1900's (Doc 1) . Although the anarchists were against the government, they did see the poor...

By: Cindy S When young people commit violent acts or crimes, the media and entertainers are blamed. But is that right? When Klebold & Harris shot up their fellow classmates at Clumbine High School, Marilyn Manson was to blame. Young people are always told the entertainers we watch & listen to influences us to be bad & commit crimes. So what if we buy Mcdonalds because I see that commercial or hear the ad on the radio in my car. Killing someone because I saw it on TV is different than buying a hamburger because I saw it on Tv. You don't think about buying a hamburger, you think about killing someone. Besides a hamburger is marketed, labeled with saying buy that hamburger. When on tv someone is killed no one says do this to be cool. Who I think is to blame is a different story. Myabe it could be the parents for doing the most they could, or working all the time, or giving their children to much independence. Maybe it very well could be television or music. But maybe it's the individuals responsibilty, and his actions. But what about the generation before us. We have everything we need or could ever want. We don't have to fight for anything. Because of that we are depressed and bored. Bordedum can lead to violence. That is what violence should be blamed on. Not entertainment, but the generation and bordum we are given to deal with. blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah....

The legalization of drugs has always been a problem in the United States. Some people agree with the Idea of legalizing drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and many others. These people argue that with the legalization of these drugs the crime rate and other social problems would reduce. While their opponent argue that the legalization of drugs would only add to the already high crime rates, and many social problems we have in the United States. Both sides both have very good arguments as to why drugs should or should not be legalized in the United States. The battle between the government date back as early as the year 1914. This is the year in which the government passed the Harrison Narcotic act. This act asked for the punishment of those who were illegally in possession and use of marijuana. Penalties for the sale, and or, possession of illegal drugs were established by the Drug Abuse Control Amendments of 1965. Surprisingly enough, through all of these drug laws, marijuana remained legal until 1970. Even though most drugs were now illegal in the Untied States, more than fourteen million Americans used drugs at least once a month in the late 1980's. What would be some of the benefits from the legalization of drugs? Well, for the actual user there would be numerous benefits from the legalization of such drugs as marijuana. First would be the price of the drugs. Drug costs would dramatically decrease by ninety percent if they were made legal. Also the availability of them would increase. Heroine, at one time was close to becoming legal, would have been available at any corner market, and even treated like aspirin without any restrictions. Along with the benefits, comes' the obvious dangers that would rise from the legalization of drugs. One of the first considerations that comes to a person's mind when thinking of the possible dangers drugs is the thought...

"Friendliness is simply the joy of sharing without conditions, without expectations, with no desire that something should be returned- not even gratefulness."(Friendship 1). Many believe that to know friendship is to know a special kind of joy. In the dictionary, friendship is described as a person whom one knows, likes, and trusts. Even though there are many meanings of the word friendship there are only two kinds of friendship, good and bad. Also, many different people have demonstrated the power of friendship but one woman holds the true meaning of it. In life, many friends come and go but the best friends stay for a lifetime. There are many types of good friendships, such as, friendships with actual friends, family, or just acquaintances. Friendship is an extremely important aspect of life. Good friends are cherished and adored, some would say, "the road to a friends house is never long" (Friendship 1). This shows that, when you have a great friend it doesn't take a lot to be friends with that person. Being someone's friend means to know the in's and out's of that person and even their darkest secrets. You also love, respect, and know that person very well. Another friendship is one that a person has with his or her family. Sometimes these can be the best friendships because that person knows the family or family member better than anyone else does. On the other hand, they can be bad because you never get a break from your family because you live with them each day. The last type of friendship is an acquaintance. This is a person that someone would just say "hi" or "bye" and maybe has a quick conversation. They don't really share much, and are not very close, but they are friends. This is what most...
