    kid(referencing to today) goes to Vegas and blows it all on women and gambling. From the story, The PArable of the Prodigal’s Son, line twelve, “And the younger of hte said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.” This kid just thinks that he can have and will continue to have whatever he wants as long as his dad has money. Normally, if you actually had respect for someone you wouldn’t just go and blow that money. You would try to be smart with it, put it in the bank, or put it into something useful. I think this lacks respect because he doesn’t care that he blew it he thinks that everything should be just fine because his dad has money. If I were the father I would feel as if the only reason why my young child would enjoy my company was because of my money. Today many kids do the same thing, they think that money grows on trees and that is why I like it, because, it is relatable to today. My second reason why I like this story is because it shows love. It shows love because even after the stupid kid just went and blew ten million dollars, his father still is happy because he is home. He is not mad about the money at all. He is just glad that his son has returned home alive. This shows that love can go beyond money and that money doesn’t always buy love. From the story, The Parable of the Prodigal Son, line twenty, “And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw…

    I said this earlier but when it comes to restraints, the only ones that should be there are the ones you put on yourself. This is very important when it comes to the people of today. A rule is a rule and just having one means that there is a huge issue, that issue being what is what. We liv in a era of participation awards, by that I mean that everyone has to feel like a special snowflake whether they are or not. The reason I bring this up is because of the one main rule Libertarianism has, that…

They send ferocious roots beneath the ground… Four whose only reason is to be and be.” (Page 75)…

    you will still be talking, Signior Benedick, nobody marks you” (A1; S1; L114-115). This not only shows her hatred toward Benedick in the beginning of the play but also shows that she can have a very wicked tongue and she is not afraid to speak her mind. Telling him that she does not know why he even wastes his breath by talking, nobody respects him so in her mind he should do them all a favor and just not talk. In the same conversation Benedick says “God keep your Ladyship still in that mind, so…
