History Does Repeat Itself

Written by Jason Liptow

One of my biggest philosophies about history is that it does tend to repeat itself. Whether this is good or bad can be debated forever, but it is a phenomenon that also occurs inrepparttar field of economics. In fact,repparttar 147479 events of a historical period often influencerepparttar 147480 economy ofrepparttar 147481 time. One ofrepparttar 147482 greatest examples of history repeating itself isrepparttar 147483 current war betweenrepparttar 147484 United States and Iraq. Considerrepparttar 147485 following. Duringrepparttar 147486 early 1990's, President Bush, Sr. invaded Iraq. Atrepparttar 147487 timerepparttar 147488 economy ofrepparttar 147489 United States was pretty strong due torepparttar 147490 Reagan era. Shortly afterrepparttar 147491 invasion of Iraq byrepparttar 147492 United States,repparttar 147493 economy began to falter and there was ultimately no conclusion to this invasion asrepparttar 147494 United States pulled out after quickly declaring a victory. Compare this torepparttar 147495 current Iraq invasion. The United States' economy was doing very well duringrepparttar 147496 Clinton administration. There was even a surplus of billions of dollars instead ofrepparttar 147497 usual deficit that this country has seen so often. Unfortunately,repparttar 147498 terrorist attack on 9/11/2001 prompted current President Bush to first launch attacks against Afghanistan where it was believed Al-Qaeda was headquartered. Next, President Bush chose to attack Iraq for various reasons -- weapons of mass destructions, ties to terrorism, etc. Thus another war with Iraq andrepparttar 147499 United States began. Since thenrepparttar 147500 surplus ofrepparttar 147501 US economy has disappeared and is currently at a deficit. The United States found no weapons of mass destruction and has never found Osama Bin-Laden. Fortunately, Saddam Hussein was captured. Now

Stop School Bullying: Do You Think Bullies Deserve a ‘Clean Slate'? By Paula McCoach http://www.bullyzapper.com

Do you think hardcore bullies deserve a "Clean Slate" atrepparttar beginning ofrepparttar 147273 school year?

You don't?

You don't believe in a 'clean slate' for these students. You feel it only putsrepparttar 147274 students who have put of with them for years through yet another tormenting start torepparttar 147275 school year.

Unless there is convincing evidence that these bullies have "changed" overrepparttar 147276 summer, you feel their history of bullying should follow them intorepparttar 147277 new school year until their behavior proves otherwise.

Immediately atrepparttar 147278 start ofrepparttar 147279 school year, you should identifyrepparttar 147280 hardcore bullies - Kids who you have tried repeatedly to stop bullying other students and who they continued right up torepparttar 147281 end ofrepparttar 147282 school in June.

I develop this plan overrepparttar 147283 summer and talk torepparttar 147284 bullies onrepparttar 147285 first day of school or even have a conference withrepparttar 147286 bully and their parents to discussrepparttar 147287 bully having a successful school year with a change of his/her behavior.

Create a plan for dealing with these bullies starting withrepparttar 147288 first week of school. Plan Ahead for Your Hardcore Bullies! You don't want to let them loose onrepparttar 147289 other kids.

One idea could be to place them on a Behavioral checklist with specific behaviors dealing with bullying. It they are not marked with a positive check on those behaviors, they receive a consequence.
